ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Get Justice for Innocent Fawn

This summer animal advocates spoke out when the Department of Natural Resources raided an animal shelter and seized a fawn named Giggles. Through the Freedom of Information Act, IDA discovered that not only was Giggles killed inhumanely by wildlife officials one day before she was scheduled to be moved to a rehabilitation facility, but that the ones who killed her had joked about it. 

Please send a letter to the the governor demanding the removal of Wisconsin DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp, along with all others involved in this innocent fawns death, for acting both callously and unprofessionally. 


2. Keep Yellowstone's Grizzly Bears Protected

Yellowstone's iconic grizzly bears are one step closer to losing protection under the Endangered Species Act, despite conflicting opinions about how well they're doing and the threats they face.  They've already lost a critical food source –whitebark pine trees – and continue to face threats from a small gene pool and conflicts with humans and livestock. 

Please sign the petition asking the Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure their future survival by opposing delisting them. 


3. Oppose Horse Slaughter in the U.S.

At the beginning of the month a federal judge cleared the way for horse slaughter to resume in the U.S. It's been temporarily stopped again by an emergency injunction, but a greedy few are determined to get this predatory industry up and running again. It's more urgent than ever to get a federal ban in place that will shut this down for good. 

Please send a letter to your representative asking them to support the SAFE Act, which will ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption in the U.S., in addition to banning their export abroad for that purpose.

    always worth taking time to read and sign these petitions or send a letter because the animals sure can't.
