Petition: Six Elephants Died After Eating Toxic Waste – Tell the Dump to Build a Fence

In Sri Lanka, Deegawapi is famous for being the home of the beautiful Buddhist temple of the same name. But after six elephants needlessly died at a dump in the area, it may become famous for a new reason.

The Deegawapi dump holds the areas refuse. Locals take their toxic waste, plastics and other materials for which they no longer have use there. And because it has no fence, the smells, attract animals big and small, hungry for a bite to eat.

That is how a herd of elephants ended up at the dump earlier this month. The herd was seen by locals picking up litter with their trunks and putting it in their mouths. Unfortunately, six of the elephants ate so much trash that they died shortly afterward. An autopsy revealed that their stomachs were full of polyethylene, the most common form of plastic, primarily used in packaging.

These endangered animals didn’t need to die. A simple fence would have kept them, as well as other animals out of danger.

It is time local officials take the initiative to protect these incredible creatures and make sure a tragedy like this never happens again.

Please sign the petition and tell the municipality of Pradeshiya Sabha to build a fence and other deterrent devices to keep the elephants and other animals out of the dump and safe from harm.

PETITION: JUSTICE FOR HINDO- SHE WAS SAVAGELY BEATEN TO DEATH BY VICIOUS MOB IN LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom

We are asking the Merseyside Police for a full, thorough and detailed investigation into the brutal killing of Hindo, a family pet, thrown from her home balcony in Toxteth, Liverpool, by a mob and then brutally beaten to death with sticks.

Please sign the petition and speak up for Hindo and her family.

Hindo was a 7 year old American bulldog who had been with her family since she was 6 months old. She was soft and gentle and liked to cuddle a blanket when she went to sleep.

On the 21st April, a drunken crowd of around 40 people gathered in the road outside Hindo’s home shouting, drinking and throwing bottles at nearby cars. Hindo and her family watched from their balcony, frightened. Her owner Cristian phoned the police 3 times and reported the situation and was told each time a patrol car was on the way. His mother was brave enough to go down and ask the crowd to stop throwing bottles. The patrol car did not arrive and 10-15 members of this mob climbed fencing and reached the balcony with broken bottles where they slashed at Hindo’s owner and his mother and picked Hindo up by her legs and threw her over the balcony. Cristian fought his way through the mob to try and reach his dog, who was being savagely beaten with sticks on the road where she had fallen

Hindo died from her injuries whilst being taken to the vet. She was murdered outside her home in front of her family. This happened in England. In a country famed for loving animals.

Hindo’s family can’t bring her back, but they want to know the people responsible for this are punished to the full extent of the law. And so do we.

Neighbours saw what was happening. 10 video tapes of this horrific event have been handed to the police. 6 people have been arrested so far and released on bail pending enquiries. 2 of those have already attempted to leave the country and caught. We are asking the Merseyside Police to ensure that justice is pursued vigorously for Hindo and her family. Please join us. Please sign this petition and let Merseyside Police know that the British Public want justice for Hindo and her family.

Petition: Make It Illegal for Animal Abusers to Work With Animals

by: Judy M.
target: U.S. Congress

59,902 SUPPORTERS – 60,000 GOAL

The New York state Senate just approved a measure making it a class A misdemeanor for an individual convicted of animal cruelty to ever have employment working with animals. But the truth is, this should be a law across the nation.

Sign the petition to make sure no animal abuser can work at an animal shelter ever again!

This is not only protection for all animals; It is well known that there is a strong connection between animal cruelty, child abuse, domestic violence and many other crimes.

It is astonishing that it is currently perfectly legal for someone convicted of animal abuse to work in a shelter, humane society or a pound.

Please sign my petition calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a law making it illegal for a known animal abuser to ever work with animals.
