ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Protect Orcas From Deadly Sonar

Off the coast of Washington, Oregon and California the Navy has continued to drop high-intensity bombs that threaten the health and lives of orcas, dolphins and other marine mammals. Thankfully, a few months ago a court ruled that the Navy hadn't considered how harmful its actions were and called on the Navy to do an environmental review... however they have proceeded. 

Please send a letter asking the U.S. Navy to adopt training methods that don't harm wildlife.  


2. Tell Kentucky Not to Protect Animal Abusers

A bill was recently introduced to improve animal welfare in Kentucky by banning gas chambers and setting euthanasia standards in shelters. Unfortunately, lawmakers stealthily added a provision that would make it illegal to expose animal cruelty on farms in an attempt to fast track it without public opposition. 

Please sign the petition asking Kentucky's lawmakers not to pass this bill as it is written. 


3. Stop the Seal Hunt: Support a Federal Buyout

Despite the cruelty inherent in sealing, the dwindling interest in seal products and the looming impact of climate change, Canada continues to issue death sentences for seals. Animal advocates have continued to support a federal buyout that would end sealing and help fishermen by compensating them and helping them move into other industries. 

Please sign the petition asking Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper to end the cruelty once and for all and buyout the industry.
