ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Support Prosecution for Men Who Killed Foxes in Front of Kids

A recent incident involving fox hunters killing foxes with dogs in front of children has brought the controversy of this alleged sport back into the public eye. The hunters argue they were acting within the law using terriers, but the use of hounds is banned and exposing children to this type of violence against animals is inexcusable. 

Please sign the petition asking the RSPCA to pursue the case and prosecute the hunters under the Hunting Act. 

2. Help Stop the Execution of 16,000 Cormorants

First we blamed the sea lions, now officials are targeting cormorants for doing nothing more than eating fish to survive. The Army Corp of Engineers has proposed killing 16,000 of them in the Columbia River Estuary even though they only eat a small percentage and doing so could have unintended consequences for their population. 

Please sign the petition asking the Corp to scrap this cruel and pointless plan. 

3. Tell New York to Protect Wildlife from Deadly Poisons

The New York Department of Environmental Conservation is being urged to ban the use of super-toxic rat poisons over the threat they pose to wildlife, pets and people. At least 31 different wildlife species have been harmed, while thousands of companion animals and children have also been affected. 

Please sign the petition urging the DEC to ban the use of these cruel and indiscriminate killers.
