ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Support Funding for Retired Research Chimps

Following a long battle for their freedom, chimpanzees suffering in labs got a victory when the National Institutes of Health (NIH) formally announced it would be retiring most of the ones it owns or funds. However, the cap on the $30 million that was allocated for their care at the time will be hit this month and once it is reached the NIH won't have the necessary funds to move retired chimps to sanctuaries or care for the ones who are already there. 

Please sign the petition urging your representative to support legislation that will lift the cap on spending so these chimps can go to sanctuaries and live out their days in peace. 

2. Stop the Slaughter – Speak Up for Wolves

In just 16 days, 181 wolves have been killed in Wisconsin – making the death toll higher than it was in all of 2012. Some believe the scales have been tipped with an unbalanced Wolf Advisory Committee, which is responsible for making management recommendations. The committee is made up largely of those with interests in livestock, hunting and trapping, while scientists have been removed and only one pro-wolf group is represented. 

Please send a letter to the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to ensure balance and fairness in the committee.  

3. Tell the USDA to Protect Baby Wild Animals 

Exhibitors often use baby animals to draw crowds, but once these babies grow older their cuteness wears off and they can become dangerous to handle. Unfortunately, once they're no longer profitable for their owners they can end up in a number of bad situations. 

Please sign the petition urging the USDA to create a rule that bans public contact with big cats, bears and primates.
