Sign Petition: Save Mufasa the White Lion

Mufasa is a white lion. There are less than 300 of his kind left in the world, of which only 13 exist in the wild.

Mufasa was confiscated by law enforcement and handed to a wildlife rehabilitation center to be cared for. The rehab centre acquired a second cub Suraya, as a companion for Mufasa. Mufasa and Suraya are now three years old and are inseparable.

Nature conservation officials refused permission for Mufasa to be relocated to a sanctuary, who offered to care for both Mufasa and Suraya for their natural lives, free of charge. Instead, the rehab centre was told telephonically that Mufasa will be auctioned to raise funds for the department.

We ask you to sign our petition, asking for both Mufasa and Suraya to be donated to a sanctuary chosen by the people who took care of them for the past three years, to prevent them from being exploited.

The Honourable Member of the Executive Counsil, Department of Rural Environmental and Agricultural Development, North west South Africa.

RELOCATION OF CONFISCATED LION MALE- MUFASA AND FEMALE SURAYA

We hereby petition you to review the decision of the Northwest Department of Rural, Environment and Agricultural development (READ) to refuse a relocation permit for Mufasa and to grant a permit only for the lioness who has been Mufasa’s companion for almost three years.

In terms of an agreement with READ , the rehab centre who cared for the two lions, and carried the costs thereof up to date, has the right to propose a sanctuary, where the lions are to be cared for. Sanwild has agreed to take the lions and to care for them free of charge, and the rehab put in an official proposal for the two to be released in Sanwild. This proposal was refused

The reasons why we believe the existing decision should be overturned are as follows:

1) Mufasa has had a vasectomy and is no longer able to breed and is therefore of no interest to a breeder. The only commercial value he has, is to be hunted in a put and chase hunt, otherwise known as a canned hunt.

2) Mufasa and Suraya have formed an inseparable bond. If the two are separated, both will suffer trauma and stress.

3) You are no doubt aware of the decision reached at COP 17 of CITES in Johannesburg during 2016 and the amendment noted in Conf 17-8 concerning the Disposal of illegally traded and confiscated specimens of CITES-listed species. We specifically draw your attention to the decision tree analysis for captive options, formulated in Resolution Conf. 17.8 – 14. We will not dwell on the contents, but only wish to highlight the first two requirements

a. As a point of departure the confiscating authority should consider releasing the specimen in the wild.

b. If that is not feasible and there is space available in non-commercial captive facility (e.g. a lifetime-care facility) the confiscating authority should execute an agreement and transfer the animal.

4) Mufasa is a text book case of the above and we believe it will be a transgression of both the spirit and the fabric of CITES to treat him otherwise.

5) There are no other suitable sanctuaries in the North west province that are able to care for both lions and the best practical nvironmental option in the interest of the welfare of the two lions are to be released to Sanwild.

We therefor petition you to intervene and to authorise the relocation permit for both lions to Sanwild.

Yours truly

Friends of Mufasa

Exclusive Video: Plight Desperate for Abandoned Dolphin | Dolphin Project

Update 11 /13/ 18: According to a well-informed source, Inuboski Marine Park Aquarium is currently in debt and seeking a buyer. When the Marine Park was closed, a foreign company reportedly made an offer of a few hundred million yen to buy the marine park. It was later revealed the marine park was in debt of almost the same amount, and ultimately the buyer withdrew. We are told there are no other investors in negotiations at this time.

Our source can confirm that honey is being care for by a staff member.

New White House Petition Demands Congress Pass Legislation Protecting Online Speech

New White House Petition Demands Congress Pass Legislation Protecting Online Speech
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com –
4-5 minutes
Backlash against Big Tech intensifies

A new White House petition has been launched urging President Trump to demand Congress pass legislation that defends free speech online.

The full petition, which can be https://www.infowars.com/new-white-house-petition-demands-congress-pass-legislation-protecting-online-speech/ here, reads as follows;

The internet is the modern public square. It is where political campaigns are fought and won, where journalism is created and distributed, and where grassroots movements are born. Yet, the free and open internet has become a controlled, censored space, monopolized by a few unaccountable corporations.

By banning users from their platforms, those corporations can effectively remove politically unwelcome Americans from the public square. That is repugnant to our shared values of free speech and freedom of the press.

The President should request that Congress pass legislation prohibiting social media platforms from banning users for First Amendment-protected speech. The power to block lawful content should be in the hands of individual users – not Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey.

The petition was launched after numerous conservative voices were banned or deplatformed by Big Tech in recent weeks, including Alex Jones, who was censored by Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and others in a coordinated strike.

Since those bans, Trump himself has repeatedly tweeted to draw attention to social media censorship, including today when he accused Google of favoring negative search results about him in its news results.

….results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 28, 2018

Earlier this month, Trump also drew attention to conservatives being censored online.

“Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen,” he wrote. “Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made.”

“Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen.”

In addition to the petition, with the help of top media lawyers, Infowars has drawn up a series of recommendations to be sent to the Trump administration that will help protect free speech online.

Suggestions include directing the Justice Department to open investigations into whether there are First Amendment & anti-trust law violations by the major social media platforms. Trump could also set up a Presidential Commission made up of free speech experts to advise him on future action.

President Trump Is The Real Deal, But He Is Surrounded By Cowards

Mass censorship of conservatives and libertarians is exploding. You’ve already seen this with the demonetization and ultimate purge of Infowars and other alternative media outlets by mega-corporations working in tangent to stifle competition. But you are important in this fight. Your voice is important. Your free thought is important. Make no mistake, you are just as important as anyone in the Anti-American establishment.

Some will recall that March 9th 2015 was the comment deadline for another of Holtec’s attempts to decrease safety by asking for exemptions re dry cask storage of damaged spent nuclear fuel rods, and other safety related exemptions. Well, they are at it again this month, trying to avoid material quality testing for the basket which holds the spent nuclear fuel, within the flimsy 1/2 inch metal container. Basket failure could lead to a catastrophic nuclear accident. The deadline for this one is April 20th: “NRC-2014-0275, List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks – Holtec International HI-STORM Flood/Wind Cask System, Amendment No. 1, Revision 1, 04/20/2015” Comment here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=NRC-2014-0275
[Update Note: Current Holtec casks are 1/2 inch thick. The 5/8ths inch was proposed for San Onofre, but is apparently not approved yet by the US NRC. The sealed internal 1/2 inch metal cask is surrounded by vented concrete…

Sign Petition Urging San Diego Zoo Safari Park Release Rescued Bengal Tiger Cub To A Sanctuary – World Animal News

http://worldanimalnews.com/sign-petition-urging-san-diego-zoo-safari-park-release-rescued-bengal-tiger-cub-sanctuary/

By Care2 –
March 5, 2018

As previously reported by WAN, 18-year-old Luis Eudoro Valencia was recently sentenced to six months in prison for attempting to smuggle an endangered Bengal tiger cub from Mexico into the U.S. last year.
Animal advocates agree that the sentence is not nearly long enough.
Worse is the fact that the innocent tiger cub received what may be a life sentence when he was sent to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Our partner Care2 currently has a petition urging that the cub is transferred to a sanctuary.
It is feared that if the cub is forced to live in captivity, he may suffer from “zoochosis,” a condition that causes animals to hurt themselves and behave in other unusual ways, due to the stress of confinement.
In the wild, tigers typically roam across large distances, climb trees, run and swim, all with minimal human contact. This is not the case in captivity where animals are exploited for corporate profit.
Instead of being driven to madness, this Bengal tiger should be able to live his life in a sanctuary where he will have access to proper care, protection, and veterinary care, all without being forced to be on public display.
Please sign the Care2 petition urging the San Diego Zoo to send this precious cub to a sanctuary.

Indiana DNR: Appeal to keep Finn the fox
by Torrey Bright · 118,178 supporters
Petition update
The outcome
Torrey Bright
Peru, IN

Jun 15, 2016 — I am only sending this update to update all the thousands who have asked..

Despite my efforts, knowledge, petition, 118,000 signatures, and fact that I already house and own an animal of the same species, whom helped me adopt and nurse Finn back to health.. The DNR ruled against me today stating that “I am not special,” that the “law is the law and I’m not changing it for you,” and stating that “I could have all the signatures in the world on my petition and it wouldn’t matter to them.”
I have to give up an animal that has done no wrong, and who knows me as his mother, all because of what’s written in an old book with no room for error or emotion.

He now is to be picked up and taken to a rehabber, who also has a fox, to be used for educational purposes. However, they refuse to tell me the location or name because “I don’t get visitation rights.” God forbid they grant me anything for doing what everyone thought was right.

For those saying to hide him or say he “ran away”, it is not an option due to the fact I will lose my other license if so. I was made a mockery of and told it didn’t matter if I have 100k people standing next to me, they wouldn’t change their stance.

No good deed should go unpunished evidentially. No one with a heart or compassion is given a second glance. No common sense is used. Someone who sits in a big office all day with no contact to wildlife itself is clearly the correct person to make the final decision right???

This petition has been closed, the case has been closed, and we have lost the battle. Thank you to everyone who tried to make a stand with us, we appreciate each one of you.
