Fireworks are the cause of severe distress and injury to both people, children and animals every year in the UK. Fireworks can be let off at anytime of the year. Many are very large and do maim or kill... especially younger children who are at great risk! Tighter legislation is needed to protect the public and our children and animals from the horrendous injuries we witness every year in the UK.
Please support our MP, Mr Paul Truswell, in obtaining a Bill that will add to our existing laws to protect the public, or children and animals by the use of tighter controls on the sale and use of explosives/fireworks to the public.
Thank you all.
302. STOP ECO-TERRORISM!!
For years, the people all over this planet have been harassed, injured, and even killed by self-righteous delinquents who commit violent acts in the names of Earth and animals.
People so pious in their beliefs they take their misanthropy to new and terrifying levels. And to further spit in the faces of those they seek to harm, they claim they aren't commiting violence. Why? because their targets are not always living individuals. Some examples of eco-terrorist acts are:
1.they burn down buildings. Usually labratories or farms.
2.destroy crops they deem "inorganic" or unnatural.
3.release animals from labs and farms that carry unknown diseases that put the ecosystem at risk. And more then half of animals released by these stunts die within 48 hours.
4.blow up equipment, machinery, and buildings.
5.destroy homes and private property with rockss,paint,guns.often these homes are occupied at the moment they inflict harm. men,women,and children are injured during these charades.
6.threaten the lives of people and their families who are involved in industries these fanatics deem "evil".
7.cause riots that result in injury and death.
8.physically assault individuals they believe inflict the most harm.
This just touches on what these groups do. They run around in the dead of night wearing hoods like KKK members trying to intimidate people and governments to conform to their ideals.
WE MUST STOP THESE GROUPS!!THEY SEEK TO DEVALUE HUMAN LIVES AND ELEVATE RODENTS ABOVE OUR CHILDREN.
The Animal Liberation Front
The Earth Liberation Front
PETA(donates money to eco-terrorism)
SHAC(stop huntingdon animal cruelty)
Friends of Animals(openly supports eco-terrorism)
United Poultry Concerns(cheered on 9-11 because 3000 potential chicken-eaters were killed that day)
For those who DON'T know: PETA is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the largest animal rights group around. The problems that have been plaguing the world by the Animal Rights movement is constantly hurt more by this organization and people unwilling to see the lies, and the support of terrorists groups, phony organizations, and even committing violent acts.
PETA has been accused several times of supporting terrorism in the name of their political agenda. PETA has denied this, but PETA's IRS 990 forms show that PETA donated to the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, the largest domestic terrorist groups in the U.S, which has confessed of committing over $10,000,000 worth of damage to buildings, defacing property, even mailing death threats, to spread its political agenda. PETA's donations are as following: $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front in 2001, $45,200 to Rodney Coronado, who was convicted of burning down a research lab. Another $25,000 in an un-returnable loan went to his father the previous year, $2,000 to David Wilson convicted of firebombing a bird co-op, $5,000 to Josh Harper, convicted of assaulting police, a firing at a fishing boat, and $ 1,500 to Fran Trutt convicted of attempting murder of a medical Doctor. Yes, attempted murder.
Even though PETA tries to cover up/deny any of these donations, the lies show right through. Now their tax-exempt status is at risk because of these donations. This organization is also responsible for pulling off publicity stunts, such as the shocking "Got Beer?!" campaign, which is supposed to make people believe that beer is better than milk. Another example of their extreme campaign was the billboard in Europe that claims that feeding children meat is child abuse. PETA's head cheese, Ingrid Newkirk, Vegan coordinator Bruce Friedrich, and other top PETA members have said things that make you wonder what planet they are from, and clearly shows their hatred towards other humans, and support for terrorist actions in the name of Animal Rights. For example;
· "Our nonviolent tactics are not as effective. We ask nicely for years and get nothing, someone makes a threat, and it works." - Ingrid Newkirk.
· "I openly hope that it comes here." - Ingrid Newkirk referring to mad cow disease.
· "We're looking for good lawsuits that will establish the interests of animals as a legitimate area of concern in law." - Ingrid Newkirk
- "If a girl gets sexual pleasure from riding a horse, does the horse suffer? If not, who cares? If you French kiss your dog and he or she thinks it's great, is it wrong? We believe all exploitation and abuse is wrong. If it isn't exploitation and abuse, it may not be wrong."
- "Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are 'acceptable crimes' when used for the animal cause."
- "The cat, like the dog, must disappear... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering, and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist." - John Bryant, PETA
· " I find it small wonder that the laboratories aren't all burning to ground. If I had a more guts, I'd light a match." - Ingrid Newkirk, after an underground group mailed razor blade laced threats to medical researchers studying new drugs on primates.
· "Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but 6 billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses." - Ingrid Newkirk
· "To those people who say, 'My father is alive because of animal experimentation,' I say, 'Yeah, well, good for you. This dog died so your father could live ... " - Bill Maher, PETA celebrity spokesman
-"Let us allow the dog to disappear from our brick and concrete jungles -- from our firesides, from the leather nooses and chains by which we enslave it." - John Bryant, PETA
· "The discomfort of a human does not outweigh the right of the animal to live . . ." - Carol Burnett, PeTA spokesperson
· "If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it's perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through the windows. ... Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do It."
Bruce Friedrich, PETA's vegan campaign coordinator, at the "Animal Rights 2001" conference
It's very disturbing to know that an organization like this could have so many heartening comments coming from their higher members. Bet you didn't know that Ingrid Newkirk admitted on a CNN interview that they [PETA] deliberately editing out certain portions of the videotape done at BoysTown in order to make it appear that the kitten in the video was suffering, when it was really coming out of anesthesia. You know that PETA runs large anti-meat/dairy/fishing/animals in medical research campaigns, but did you know that they get their information from a group called the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (AKA PCRM), which claims to be a group of "Doctors and laypersons working together for compassionate and effective medical practice, research, and health promotion." Evidence from Activist Cash (http://www.activistcash.com/) shows that physicians make up only 5% of its membership, and that the group's only physicians represent less than 0.5% of America's doctors. They also want to abolish animal use in lifesaving research and try to promote (and extremely enforce) Veganism, going as far to suggest that meat, eggs, and dairy can be labeled as "Weapons of mass destruction". This is completely ridiculous and false. PETA also claims to help the animals, which is hypnotically because according to a July 26, 2000, Associated Press story, out of the 2,103 animals that PETA "rescued" during 1999, a whopping 1,325 of them were euthanized because they couldn't find homes and shelters for these animals. Considering PETA's yearly income of over $10,000,000, don't you think that they should have been able to build a few shelters? To add to their hypocrisy, PETA pledged after 9-11 not to do extreme campaigns, but recently cranked out the new "Terrorism at the Table" campaign, comparing turkey slaughter to terrorism, featuring a turkey holding up a supermarket urging them to go vegetarian. To add to the hypocrisy, PETA members have been seen eating meat/wearing leather and fur, and the celebrities supporting PETA in campaigns, have also supported what they were shown as against. To conclude, all we say is to think long and hard about this essay. You make the decisions, but your decision may affect the future, and whether PETA takes over and our freedoms and lifestyle become obsolete based on hearsay, and propaganda created to get some attention. The choice is yours. PETA, if you listen to us please stop the madness. You are hurting your cause, and your group. Stop the madness before it's too late.
The total amount of animals tortured and killed annually in U.S. laboratories range widely - from 17 to 70 million animals. First reason, the Animal Welfare Act requires laboratories to report the number of animals used in experiments, but the Act does not cover mice, rats, and birds (used in some 80 to 90 percent of all experiments). The second reason is Because these animals are not covered by the Act, they remain uncounted and we can only guess at how many actually suffer and die each year. other animals are killed in the military by being hung upside down and shot in the back of the leg to see the effect the bullet wound has on humans even though we already know the effect.
Also animals are also killed by being tested on for cigarettes such as Salem, Joe Camel, Malboro aand other bands put gas masks on their face and make them inhale carbon monoxide, insect poisoning, rat poisonings and such
Famous Players, one of North America's largest movie exhibiting companies, has been promoting Pappas Furs Designers Ltd. We need your support in persuading Famous Players to stop its promotion of this company because of the extreme and obscene cruelty that is inflicted on animals by the fur industry.
Fur bearing animals endure hideous suffering and death. They are caught in the wild with snares, leghold and conibear traps and endure excruciating
pain. Death is not swift. In a desperate attempt to escape, many try to chew their limbs off, or languish for hours or even days until the trapper returns, only to be beaten or clubbed to death if they are still alive. Others die of infection or become prey to other animals.
Fur farms (more like fur factories) subject animals to a life time of suffering and a horrific death. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives in small, filthy
cages, madly pacing back and forth out of stress and boredom. Cannibalism is
often the grim reality of this psychological distress. There is no humane slaughter legislation to protect these animals. Fur farmers use gruesome killing methods that include gassing, suffocation, neck breaking, anal and vaginal electrocution.
Furthermore, contrary to the deceitful claims of the fur industry, fur is
not an eco-friendly product. Snares, leg hold and conibear traps are
indiscriminate and often 2-10 non-targeted animals are caught some of which are members of endangered species. Even cats and dogs fall victim to these traps. In addition, the fur industry relies on the heavy use of toxic caustic acids to treat pelts which would otherwise rot as fur garments.
Please sign our petition and help us send a clear, strong message to Famous Players that they should adhere to the business of bringing entertainment to the public and not be involved in the promotion of this brutal and deceitful industry.
Animal abuse in Spain has gone back years. Bulls are shameless slaughtered for sport, goats are dangled headfirst out of second-story windows, geese are tortured until their heads come off, and donkeys are tied to the back of vehicles until there strength is out, at which point they are dragged along the streets. All for sport. This cruel for of animal abuse is completely legal and attended like a sporting event for the people of Spain.
In short, it is not fun, it is not sport, it is gruesome slaughtering of innocent animals. Please help to put a stop to this.
Sources say the Navy decided to acknowledge the experiment, at least in part, because the sea lions were making so much noise in their pens at Bahrain harbor, home of the Navy's largest facility in the Persian Gulf.
Sea lions are not native to those waters and typically bark loudly when excited. There was no way their presence, officials decided, could be kept secret. No final decision has been made on whether the sea lions will stay.
The animals — along with dolphins and a beluga whale or two — are trained as part of the Navy's Marine Mammal Program in San Diego. They are trained to hunt for mines, to locate objects lost in deep water and to provide harbor security.
Intelligence officials have warned repeatedly about the threat of terrorists using divers to blow up ships. That's what both the sea lions and the dolphins are trained to deal with, among other things.
Working with human handlers, the sea lions are trained to locate unexpected swimming intruders, to snap a locking clamp on an arm or leg, then leave.
The clamp is connected to a rope and signal buoy that humans with guns would then reel up, presumably pulling up a human on the other end. In theory, the animals would not be hurt. Their contact with a potential terrorist — who would presumably be surprised — would last only an instant as they briefly made contact.
Eric Jensen, a veterinarian with the Navy program said: "When you study the animals and you come to realize what they can do in their own environment, the aquatic environment, it's no surprise that we have not been able to build a machine that can do what they do."
Sea Lions, Unlike Dolphins, Can Battle the Elements
Why sea lions?
During the Persian Gulf War and several times after, the Navy used specially trained dolphins to pull harbor guard duty. But their handlers discovered as the weather heated up and the water got warmer in the Gulf, the dolphins became sluggish and far less effective.
Officials say sea lions do not appear to be bothered as much by rising water temperature and they have one other advantage. Unlike a dolphin, a sea lion could continue chasing an enemy — if it came to that — onto dry land.
Due to the lack of law for animal protection in Romania anyone can kill an animal without being punished.
Protected by this lack, people without conscience, without pity, more without respect, with cruelty hard to be imagined, are killing animals of any kind, without a particular reason.
For many months, the slaughter of homeless dogs from Romania has brought many tears to animals lovers.
Poachers without pity killed a hundred dolphins in few days in the Black Sea.
The abuses against animals of anykind, the exploitation of wild animals at Black sea are a few exemples of atrocities from Romania, due to the lack of one law for animal protection in our country.
Who will punish the sick minds that are killing hundred of thousands street dogs, when didn't break "any law"?
With your help, we hope to convince the Romanian Parliament to adopt new protective law NOW. This petition, along with your comments, will be sent to Romanian Government, Romanian Parliament, the Presidency of Romania.
Killing With Kindness Campaign.
Dogs and cats that are taken to the pound in hopes of finding a new home are more likely to end up being put to death in a gas chamber, a cruel and outdated method of killing. Our shelter uses carbon monoxide poisoning as the primary method of destroying animals. The other more humane killing method, a sodium pentobarbital injection, is reserved for animals too sick, too young, too pregnant, or too injured to be effectively destroyed in the gas chamber. Less than 1% of the humane society shelters in the nation use this cruel and out-dated method and California, Florida, and Tennessee have prohibited its use on companion animals all together. Why then is it the main killing method at the Craven/Pamlico Animal Services Center in Craven County?
As long as it is deemed necessary to kill these unfortunate animals, the very least we can do is provide them with a more gentle way of dying. In an act of compassion, Pals for Paws is launching a "Killing With Kindness" campaign to stop the inhumane killing.
The fact that this is a horrific death and that these animals die in fear is well documented. When multiple animals are placed in a chamber at the same time and are gassed together, they injure themselves and each other in their terror. A crescendo of their mournful wails can be heard for up to 45 seconds. The last few moments of their lives are spent in a desperate attempt to get away from the deadly gas. After the allotted time, what is left is a pile of dead animals covered in feces and urine whose carcasses are then removed to provide space for the next batch.
A method of killing by lethal injection is much kinder to the animal. This takes two people. One person holds the animal while the other gently slips a needle into a vein. The collapse of the animal is almost instantaneous as the syringe is emptied. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) recommend an injection of sodium pentobarbital as the preferred method of euthanasia. When performed properly, this has been found to be the most humane, safest, least stressful and most rapid method of euthanasia of dogs and cats without causing fear and distress in the animals.
The "Killing With Kindness" campaign is a grassroots campaign being conducted by animal welfare and animal rights groups through out the nation and sponsored locally by Pals for Paws. This is your campaign-the taxpayers-for it is your taxes that fund the local shelter and your voice that can effect a change in the existing system. Whether this campaign lives or dies, whether companion animals die cruelly or compassionately will depend on your involvement.
We hope that every animal related individual or group in the area will support and participate with us in our efforts to urge our shelter to purge the use of the gas chamber as so many others in the country have done. We have prepared a petition to present to our local and state legislatures to make a federal law a reality to stop this method of killing. We hope that this campaign will set an example of how people can come together for the animals in our care. Please add your voice to ours by signing our petition and please promote and support every animal adoption resource so that we can put an end to the killing. Our shelter is killing over 5,000 animals a year. Sadly, most of these animals were healthy and would have made wonderful pets.
Millions of animals die everyday, do you know why? Abuse! In animal labs people cut the vocal cords of the animals so the public can't hear their cries. For what? Nothing! It's useless! Here is an example: Chocolate is toxic to dogs, it isn't toxic to humans. Do you know where people get the animals for labs? They steal other people's pets! Can you imagine, an animal who is used to never being harmed by humans and who has always been well loved and cared for is suddenly being tortured to death by humans. It makes me sick. It isn't just animal labs though. There is a hunting club in Florida where they use dogs to track down the wounded deer. Someone was teasing another person's dog and the dog bit them. The next day, the person who got bit called the dog to him. The dog came over, wagging his tail and expecting praise. Instead of praise it got shot in the head. Help the animals in the world: sign this and keep other animals from having the same fate as many others.

As long as animals die YOU won't buy!

To test products companies typically 'DRIP' test substances in the eyes of restrained animals, as dogs, cats, and rabbits and force chemicals down their throats.
Such poisoning can cause vomiting bleeding from the nose and mouth, and death.
NO LAW requires these tests !!!

This petition is for the right of animals to live in a shelter until they are adopted.
At a zoo in Malaysia, Zoo Negeri Johore, twenty-five-year-old chimpanzee Toney has sat in a small, poor area since she was a baby. She is a gift to a South-East-Asian sultan from Africa, but has neither lived with him, nor with any other "family". Most of the time, she has been all alone on her cold, stony floor for all her life. Friends of animals (in and outside Malaysia) have tried to have Toney (and one lately arrived male companion) moved to Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage, where a place is ready for them. The zoo, for which the government is responsible, says they will only release them if they get other chimps in return. We think you don't act that way with animals - you should think of what's best for them!
SAVE THE ANIMALS. IF YOU GO VEGITARIAN OR VEGAN, YOU SAVE MANY LIVES IN YOUR LIFETIME!!

Support stopping animal EATING, or testing products on animals
just because we're stronger and bigger, doesn't mean we can kill them!
Many of us have gone through life blind and accepting our society's tradition of using animals for clothing, entertainment and research studies. Then we eventually learn that animals are treated so terribly in our country and the countries around us. A big contributer to the poor treatment of animals is within zoos and circuses. Please sign this petition if you are sick and tired of seeing these defensless animals die and live miserably outside of their natural habitat.
PLEASE HELP THE INNOCENT ANIMALS BY SIGNING THIS PETITION! LABS EXPERIMENT ON ANIMALS IN INHUMANE WAYS! PLEASE HELP ME PUT AN END TO THIS! COULD YOU KILL MAN'S BEST FRIEND??
Canned hunting is the killing of an animal in an enclosure to obtain a trophy. The animals are sometimes tame exotic mammals; some, in fact, have been sold by petting zoos to the canned hunting operation. These animals do not know to run from humans. Many groups that support hunting scorn canned hunting for its unsportsmanlike practice; patrons are guaranteed a kill. Several states now ban canned hunting operations, but the practice is spreading.
Over the past 20-30 years reptile keeping has been very favored to select groups of people. These hobbiests would get a special feeling and bond with these fascinating creatures. Safe and clean housing was practised and everything was fine until the past 5 years when the pet trade caught on to the idea and reptile keeping and breeding became extremly popular. With the sudden demand for these extremly popular animals safe handling and clean housing was lost not for all but for some new to the hobby.
Now a new challenge has arised the HSUS is determine to eliminate the entire hobby of reptile keeping. Making up excusses finding week points anything to win but we fight back with education. With more people understanding how to take care of these acient animals then the hobby can be saved for future generations. There have been very view cases of salmonella over the years herptrologist who know everything about reptiles and study them can prodly say there is a very low risk of salmonella the HSUS just needs an excuss so please don't give it to them read befor you buy and act responisbly.
EDUCATE THE PUBLIC DON'T TAKE AWAY OUR HOBBY. education first before ahnnilation! REPTILES ARE MISUNDERSTOOD LETS WORK TOGTHER TO EDUCATE PEOPLE AND SHOW THEM THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT HOW DOCILE AND WONDERFUL THESE ANIMALS CAN BE!
For many years reptiles have been kept as the ideal pet. They are hardy in captivity, get few diseases and calm right down in captivity. For 20 or more years people have kept there beloved pets. Within the last 4-5 years reptile keeping has rocketed to the top and as more and more people go to buy these amazing creatures irresponsibility has set in and the hsus has siezed the chance trying to ban our beloved pets which we have kept over these years so peacefully.
The answer is not banning these wonderful creatures. With education and conservation we can enjoy these animals in our homes and in the wild. We should promote better keeping practises for these animals and there are many programs for keeping the populations intact in the wild. Salmonella is very low in reptiles. With clean, safe housing reptiles and humans will be safe from such diseases.
So please do not ruin the chance for our future generations to keep these creatures. Lets work togther to make a more educated world not one without reptiles.
321. STOP ANIMAL ABUSE!
Animal abuse is going on all over the world. We do not realize how much.
Animals are just like humans they are alive, and they need to be loved, just like we do.
People that appreciate animals can help and maybe this particular tragedy will change for the better.
There are many animals who die every day. And do you know why? Animal labs. A couple of ways YOU can help stop animal labs:
1. Don't put up signs for free animals! You THINK these people will care for this litter of kittens (example), but you don't know them!
2.Sign This Petiton
Why You Should Sign: Do you know how labs get these animals? They steal them! Imagine a little girl. Small, always being made fun of. Her only friend is a small cat. She finds comfort in this friend and often wets the cat's tears with fur. The cat lays there, understanding. One day the cat "runs away". The mother says "Honey, someone'll give her a good home". Not true. What really happened was someone stole the cat and now the cat has to suffer just for cruel humans. The little girl will never see her cat again, and never knew what happened. Do this for all those little girls, and all the others who have a animal that has disappeared.
The majority of orphaned baby animals the Ottawa Carleton Wildlife Centre (OCWC) receives for care come in alone or in pairs. For successful socialization and reintroduction to the wild, they are put in normal family-size groups of four to five animals. They spend many weeks together or, in the case of some species, many months, and are released together at carefully selected foster volunteer sites that have all the natural features necessary for their survival.
The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources regulations now demand that each animal be separated from its group and released back to within one kilometer from where it came.
OCWC will not be party to what we know are inhumane and irresponsible release regulations. Separating animals that have bonded as a unit and taking a single terrified animal back to almost-always inappropriate sites where they are not wanted and where there is no interim care, means animals will have no chance of survival.
If the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre is to remain open to help wildlife, this regulation must be changed.
Please protect our wildlife and ensure the future of OCWC and other rehab centres in Ontario by reading and signing the Petition.
THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS PUT TO SLEEP EVERY DAY FOR NO REASON AT ALL. THEY JUST DONT HAVE ANY ROOM FOR THEM ANYMORE AT SHELTERS. I THINK THAT THIS NEEDS TO END AND SOON. I AM GOING TO MAKE A PET HAVEN ON 40 ACRES OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I NEED PEOPLE TO JOIN ME IN MY CAUSE. I NEED PEOPLE TO REALIZE WHAT IS GOING ON AND IF I CAN GET PEOPLE TO SIGN MY PETITION MAYBE I CAN GET A GRANT FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
Bonsai Kittens is a technique where small kittens are put into jars to create a new form. They stick these small helpless animals into jars when they do not have a definate shape and when they come out months later they can me molded into new forms.
Bonsai kittens says "Cube Kitty makes an ideal toy for children of all ages, from infant and up, and while still in the containment vessel can even double as playroom furniture!" This is cruelty to animals and should be stopped.
Being in a small jar is like being in prison for a crime you dident commit. Please sign this to stop the horrible act.
Huntingdon Life Sciences is Europe's largest vivisection lab. They have labs Situated in Huntingdon (UK),Occold (UK) and in NJ (USA).70,000 animals including dogs,cats,rabbits,monkeys and guinea pigs are imprisoned in poor conditions. All animals will die after suffering horrifically.Drugs and chemicals are pumped into the animals to see the effects but these effects are not the same as with humans.
These experiments are pointless and cruel. HLS has been exposed 4 times with cruelty to animals including beating and shaking puppies. 500 animals die every day. Help stop this cruel prison.
In the peel region of Mississagua, Ontario animal Abuse is considered a criminal act. Although the punishment is rather light why should someone who kills or seriously abuses an animal be charged with something as light as a $2000 fine or 2 years in prison. This is not enough. We the people who care about animals think this should be much more and would like to see this punishment upgraded so horrible acts of cruelty are not let off so light.
In a recent act of abuse 3 young men in their 20's and one girl in her teens were see carrying a defenseless female iguana towards traintracks and there they dumped her and ran. When the witness ran over to the injured iguna
they noticed thermal burns on the neck! In the peel region of Mississauga, Ontario where this horrible act happened it is a crimanl act. Sadly the offenders haven't been caught.
If you like many would like to see the punisment raised for people who have abused animals please sign! Also If you don't live in the peel region contact your local Humane society and tell them that you think punishment for horrible acts are too low! NO MORE CRULTY TO ANIMALS!!!!!!!!
Animal abuse is widespread in Greece and includes starvation, neglect, cruelty and poisoning. Poisoning of both strays and owned pets happens every day; documented witness reports of this practice are abundant and have even been shown on Greek television. Poisoning is indiscriminate, and can affect children, adults and animals alike. Offenders must be prosecuted and fined for this illegal activity.
Given the current frequency of poisoning cases, it is also a concern that the numbers will step up, as the country prepares to host the Olympics 2004. Tourists are horrified at the suffering they see whilst on holidays in Greece, many vowing never to return. Given the magnitude of the problem, the Greek government needs to take an active role, working together with private animal welfare groups around Greece. Give the strays of Greece a sporting chance to survive the Olympics 2004!
This petition is to object to the permanent capture of a young Orca whale, named A-73 (the "A" is for her family, or pod name, and the "73" is her birth order in the pod).
A-73 was noticed a few months ago in Puget Sound, where her family does not often travel. Her pod seems to have left her behind after she was orphaned, and she is very ill with legions and dietary problems including malnutrition.
Right now this highly intelligent, social, mammal, has been seen playing with driftwood and rubbing herself against logs for hours at a time. Scientist say it's because she is lonelyimagine the loneliness she would feel if she were to spend the rest of her life in captivity, without the freedom to hunt, or swim, or play. Instead, she could be doomed to a life of circus tricks and confinement in a pen, which places her so painfully close to freedom.
The Vancouver Aquarium graciously has agreed to take the whale in for medical treatment and try as quickly as possible to re-introduce her to her pod. However, the US and Canadian governments have not developed a solid and responsible plan incase the transfer of A-73 and the proposed reunion with her family pod, who is around Vancouver from June to September, is unsuccessful. Being that the pod initially abandoned the young whale, some scientists say the chance of reintroduction could be slim.
Would the aquarium industry then be allowed to add the orca to its collection of captives?
We would like assurances from the Canadian government that that there is
absolutely no chance that this whale will end up in captivity for the rest of her
This petition in particular asks:
1.) The Vancouver Aquarium to guarantee every attempt will be made at releasing A-73 to live with it's native pod;
2.) If the pod does not accept A-73, the Vancouver Aquarium should GARAUNTEE the release and further monitoring of the whale outside of captivity. The Aquarium should administer any treatment needed, outside of a sea-pen or captive enclosure;
3.) The Canadian and United States governments to create and enforce laws regarding the capture and treatment of all whales in the Canadian & U.S. waters-- including the import of wild captured animals into Canadian & U.S. aquariums.
Stop the cruelty of fur farms, ivory trade, etc...!!!
