Animal petitions

Postby Pajarita » Wed Oct 02, 2019 9:44 am

As you all know, I am an animal right activist and, as such, I receive a lot of petitions both for USA and other countries so I will be posting them here for you to consider. Animals need help all over the planet...

This one is asking UPS to no longer ship live animals:

This one is to protect Pebble Island, its penguins, birds that only nest there and other animals:

Campaign success! TripAdvisor will no longer sell tickets to SeaWorld! YAAAAYYYY!

Now, the campaign is concentrating on convincing Expedia to end the sales, too. These places are hell on earth for the poor animals they use on the shows...

Another campaign success: Texas A&M stopped their breeding of Golden retrievers with the MD gene used in their experiments.

Please help by signing the petition. They make kittens deaf and then insert electrodes into their brains to experiment and then they kill them. What kind of person would agree to do something like that to a poor, defenseless baby?

This is not a petition but an article about a Fed judge ruling against SeaWorld (related to the Blackfish movie), a terrible place we have been trying to close since it first opened!

Petition to ban water bottles in National Parks. There was a restriction before but the Trump administration reversed it...

Petition to save the last living elephant in a zoo where two elephants died last year.

Just a personal note: I am for all animals but I will admit to having favorites and elephants are one of them. They are super gentle, intelligent, highly social, compassionate animals - I read the other day about 6 elephants that drowned because they jumped into the water trying to save a baby that had fallen in... when you see an animal willing to give up its own life in order to save a baby that, most likely, was not even related to all of them (altruism at its best), how can you justify not doing anything when you know they are being killed for their body parts, kept captive under awful conditions just so they can entertain people, exploited and treated with extreme cruelty by people?

Petition to reverse the Trump administration decision to allow 'high-speed slaughter' for pigs (incredibly cruel!!) and for the pig producers to police themselves (as if that has ever worked in the history of the world!).

"I think using animals for food is an ethical thing to do, but we've got to do it right. We've got to give those animals a decent life, and we've got to give them a painless death. We owe the animal respect."

Please post asking them NOT to approve! Marine mammals suffer terribly in captivity, especially when they are subjects of study/experiments.
