Petition update

Mar 19, 2018 — Since its getting closer to summer and the county fair, I hope we can get the fair board to cancel the Rodeo event for this year if they have it added, and to not allow it and add a better event that could bring in far more people from even surrounding states to visit, spend money at the fair, and join the event.

So please let them know that events harming animals is way in the past and that with a city/county riddled with crime, drugs, and violence, adding to it by hosting violence to animals events won’t help it’s image. Something with no violence and fun for all is a much wiser way to go this year.

Some suggestions for new events this year

Demolition Derby; I’ve seen many in the derby event asking for the event to be held two nights.

Motocross; instead of having a motocross show, have the event with local and surrounding riders. Charge an entry fee like with the derby and have a prize for 1st & 2nd place.

Bring the Dirty Dash to the fair, it’s like the tough mudder.

The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine. All you’ll need is a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end! It’s your enhanced pig wresting event without harming any animals and is muddy fun.

So tell the fair you want them to hold events that don’t involve harming animals and instead provide non violent fun for all ages.

Showing a child they can complete a muddy boot camp type course is far better, and better character building than teaching them violence by harming animals. Same for adults.

If there’s an event you’d like to see held this year instead of the rodeo and so they don’t sneak the pig wrestling events back in, please leave your ideas in the comments and send them to the fair board.

ShaRhonda Dawson started this petition to McDonald’s
My two kids love McDonald’s. They especially love the chicken nuggets. As a busy mom, sometimes I need a fast, convenient meal…but I don’t want to compromise on my family’s values. I was pleased to see that McDonald’s committed to 100% cage-free eggs, and that they recently reduced the calories in their Happy Meals. But I was shocked and upset to learn that when it comes to the treatment of chickens raised for their menu items, McDonald’s is lagging behind.

Please join me in asking McDonald’s to stop using chickens who are bred to suffer.

Chickens on factory farms are bred to grow so big, so fast, that they often collapse under their own weight. Many live in constant pain, and they are vulnerable to broken legs and heart attacks. These smart and social birds spend their entire lives in crowded, dimly-lit sheds without even a perch to rest on.

Restaurants like Subway, Burger King, Sonic, and many more have already committed to criteria that reduce the suffering of chickens. They are switching to healthier breeds and giving chickens more room to roam.

If all of these other companies can do it, why can’t McDonald’s?

McDonald’s actually had the chance to do better for chickens in their latest animal welfare policy. They chose not to. Please sign my petition to tell McDonald’s that we don’t need empty promises. We need real change.

I have learned a lot about how animals raised for food are mistreated, and I am deeply saddened by the harsh realities they face. But I still have hope, because I believe that big companies have the power to do the right thing and change things for the better.

As someone who cares about social justice issues, I want to show my children that they really can do something positive in the world. This could be a rare win at a time when our communities are facing so many complex—and often overwhelming—challenges.

I know we can create a kinder, more compassionate world if we raise our voices together. That’s why I’m asking McDonald’s to step up. Not just for my family—but for the millions of living beings who are suffering right now.

If you agree that McDonald’s should do better for chickens, please sign and share my petition today.

Petition Update · Sentenced to 8-10 years · Change.org

Mar 27, 2018 — News Report here: https://fend.ngo/library/puppy-doe-trial-verdict-sentencing/

Breaking news: Radoslaw Czerkawski convicted on 12 counts of animal cruelty yesterday has been sentenced to 8-10 years in prison with two years probation.

While the conviction, announced yesterday, is unprecedented and great news for the animal welfare community, the sentence announced today pales in comparison to the suffering Kiya endured.

Czerkawski’s lawyer stated that there is no reason to believe his client’s behavior could happen again.

Kiya was starved, beaten, cut and burned over a period of months. Someone who is capable of such merciless cruelty will clearly not be fit to will be ready to rejoin society in 8 years.
