ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Get Justice for Baby Raccoon Shot by "Humane Officer" 

Almost exactly a year ago a humane officer caused national outrage when he shot and killed five defenseless kittens in front of children. Last week, the same officer trapped a baby raccoon and shot her too, again in front of children. Now animal advocates are calling for both him and his supervisor to be immediately relieved of their duties over their obvious inability to humanely do their jobs. 

Please send a letter to North Ridgeville's mayor and city council asking that both of these individuals be removed from their positions. 


2. Help Protect Red Wolves

In May red wolves won a victory when a federal court stopped coyote hunting in areas where they live over concerns that wolves would be mistakenly killed, but wolf supporters are still pushing for more to be done to support recovery efforts to help ensure their survival. 

Please send a letter to the Fish and Wildlife Service telling the agency you support wolf recovery efforts in North Carolina. 


3. Help Keep Horse Slaughter Plants Closed

While lawmakers in Congress have supported legislation with language that will block funding for USDA inspections of horse slaughter facilities, if the language is removed it could mean slaughter plants could reopen in the U.S. for the first time since 2007. 

Please send a message to your representative telling them not to support any amendments that would allow horse slaughter.
