Petition: Officials Seized 26 Tons of Shark Fins From Endangered Shark Species

71,540 SUPPORTERS 75,000 GOAL

Shark fins are considered a delicacy in some parts of the world, including China. But because sharks are endangered thanks to human behavior, we cannot afford to kill any more of them. Yet, people are still trafficking in shark fins. In fact, in April and May of 2020, officials in Hong Kong seized 26 tons of shark fins from over 38,500 endangered sharks in two different cases. Luckily, they have a suspect in custody for one of the seizures. But still no word on the other seizure or any official charges on the first suspect. 

It’s critical we keep the pressure on to make sure they hold everyone involved with this massive slaughter accountable. Sign now!

The main way sharks are consumed is in a dish called shark fin soup. That means traffickers don’t even care about the rest of the shark’s body. In fact, they often slice off a shark’s fin and toss it back to the ocean to drown and die a slow and painful death. Fins from over 73 million sharks are used in this “delicacy” every single year. 

The seized shark fins in Hong Kong were largely from thresher and silky sharks, both of which are endangered. Sharks are predators, playing a crucial role in maintaining sea biodiversity. Losing an entire predatory species would have dire consequences for our planet’s ecosystem. That’s why it’s so tragic to learn of 38,500 ruthlessly slaughtered sharks

The good news is that this particular crime carries a fine of $10 million and imprisonment for 10 years. We need to demand anyone involved in this horrible act gets that punishment. Please sign on to demand justice for all these poor sharks!moreEMBED

PETITION TARGET: U.S. Congress

Puppy mills are factory-like hell holes where mother dogs are forced to breed over and over in filthy, tiny cages until they are “spent.” Sick, starving and even pregnant dogs suffer without medical care in overcrowded, feces-infested and urine-soaked cages, shivering in freezing cold temperatures during the winter and suffering in agonizing heat during the summer, according to inspection reports from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The USDA is tasked with protecting animals in puppy mills, roadside zoos and animal labs, but the agency’s shocking leniency enables these abusive operations to get away with vile animal cruelty. After withholding access to animal welfare records, their 2019 Impact Report claimed that 99 percent of licensed facilities were in “substantial compliance” with animal welfare laws without defining what exactly that term means.

Violations of the Animal Welfare Act are common, as evidenced by the U.S. Humane Society’s annual “Horrible Hundred” report on puppy mills, but details reflecting these widespread abusive operations are conspicuously absent from the report.

The USDA has the power to fine violators, revoke their licenses, and pursue criminal charges, but it chooses to allow many facilities to continue operating even after multiple uncorrected violations. Injured and sick dogs are not properly cared for, leading to a rise in disease outbreaks. By obscuring inspection records, adopting increasingly relaxed animal welfare policies, and barely enforcing established animal protections, the USDA is failing to protect puppies from being abused for profit. It’s time to fight back.

New bipartisan legislation could end barbaric wire cages and inadequate veterinary care for puppies throughout the United States. The Puppy Protection Act aims to improve the lives of thousands of dogs forced to live in filthy, crowded conditions for the benefit of cruel, profit-driven breeders.

Sign this petition urging the U.S. Congress to pass the Puppy Protection Act, and call to end the puppy mill system once and for all.

Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Letter Urging Withdrawal of Proposed EPA Rule; Comments on Rule Accepted Until May 18th, 11.59 PM Eastern

Petition · Tim Cadogan: Stop GoFundMe from allowing campaigns on cruelty to animals such as Trophy Hunting. · Change.org

Eleonora Carrara started this petition to Tim Cadogan and 3 others

GoFundMe has helped many needy causes and individuals with legitimate fund raising campaigns throughout the years. It makes fundraising easy and accessible.

However, GoFundMe is now approving fundraisers for Africa Trophy Hunters!

The promotion of senseless killing of “trophy” animals by GoFundMe especially at a time in history when the planet is in an ecological crisis in terms of the environment and its wildlife is reprehensible. GoFundMe should take down this fundraiser immediately. This campaign is regressive and has tarnished the GoFundMe image.

Alternate positive campaigns to create sustainable, cruelty free employment in Africa and elsewhere should be encouraged. Why would GoFundMe promote such a deplorable campaign rather than promoting positive changes benefitting local tourism, the environment and the animals.

PETITION: Justice for Dog Repeatedly Punched in Face for Viral ‘Boxing’ Video

PETITION TARGET: Ada County Prosecutor Jan M. Bennetts

In a sickening video posted on Snapchat, a German shepherd cried out in pain as he was punched in the face over and over by a woman wearing boxing gloves in Eagle, Idaho.

“I hit him so hard, I felt that through –” the attacker said, as the video abruptly ends.

As the suspect repeatedly struck the visibly terrified canine, someone in the background made a taunting statement against animal lovers and laughed.

“We’re boxing animals. Where’s Sarah McLachlan?” the onlooker snidely remarked, referencing the popular singer and animal rights activist, before erupting into laughter at the violence unfolding before his eyes.

Disturbed viewers are overwhelmingly responding to the horrifying clip, which went viral on social media, with demands for justice. The suspect could face an animal abuse charge, Idaho Humane Society spokesperson Kristine Schellhaas told the Idaho Statesman, but for now, the case sits on the prosecutor’s desk, awaiting a decision.

The person who beat this innocent dog in an obvious display of cruelty must not get away with their actions. Sign this petition urging Ada County Prosecutor Jan M. Bennetts to charge the perpetrator for their suspected crimes, and to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

Sign Petition: Ban the Use of Asbestos in Cosmetics!

thepetitionsite.com

by: Care2 Team recipient: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Update: Yet another U.S. cosmetics manufacturer, Beauty Plus Global (BPG), has had to recall its products bcause they were contaminated with toxic asbestos. In fact, this is actually the second time in five months that BPG has had to recall its products due to lethal contaminants. It’s time the U.S. FDA gets its act together, takes health seriously, and ban the use of asbestos in cosmetics now! Recently, jewelry and makeup retailer Claire’s Accessories recalled several cosmetic products after a customer raised concerns that they may contain asbestos. Thankfully, Claire’s Accessories was committed to taking the allegations seriously and having an independent lab test the products for asbestos, but how would asbestos get into the cosmetics in the first place? Well, it turns out that, despite its many known health risks, asbestos is not banned from use in cosmetic products. Please sign this petition to change that now. While it is against the law to use any ingredient in a cosmetic that makes the product harmful to consumers when used as directed, asbestos is not specifically included in the list of ingredients prohibited from use in cosmetics. But it absolutely should be. Once asbestos fibers enter the body, they never dissolve and can cause inflammation and permanent changes to the body’s cells. Prolonged exposure to asbestos can cause life-threatening diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, and mesothelioma. The U.S. is far behind when it comes to restricting the use of harmful chemicals in personal care products. Whereas the E.U. has banned 1,400 chemicals and Canada has banned 600, the U.S. has banned just 30 harmful chemicals. We need to catch up.

We Need Ethical Standards for Journalists Writing About Autism and Disability

As those who help shape public mindset about disabilities, journalists must do better to represent and respect this population.


Tell the Society of Professional Journalism (SPJ) to create a guide for journalists writing about disability.

The way the media portrays disabilities can have a profound effect on the way the rest of the world views them, as many people do not have firsthand experience with them — after all, only about 12.6 percent of the U.S. population has some sort of disability [1] — so the general public must derive their opinions from what they read or hear. That is why journalists need to write about disabled people in the way they want to be portrayed.

Oftentimes, however, the worldwide media is not terribly good at this. Though journalists have certainly improved at covering stories about disability, [2] they sometimes still fall short of writing about it in a way that is respectful, neutral (rather than negative), and humanizing.

For example, people with disabilities who are able to speak for themselves deserve to have their voices heard, but oftentimes their words are treated as an afterthought, if even included at all. News stories often focus on how the parents or caregivers, rather than the individuals themselves, are affected by the disability.

People with disabilities also deserve to be treated like human beings, but the media often treats them more like pets or objects — things that should be treated with love and care but don’t really have their own thoughts, feelings, or autonomy. They are infantilized, treated like burdens on families and societies, [3] and portrayed as pitiable creatures that deserve praise for doing average, everyday things (such as graduating from school or holding down a job). They are often characterized by their deficits, which sometimes can be very personal and private (i.e. inability to use the toilet).

Even in cases of filicide, journalists often get things backwards and sympathize with the parents “who killed their child out of ‘mercy‘” or “snapped under the immense burden of caregiving.” [4]

When people read these stories, they may begin to internalize these negative messages and form the subconscious opinion that those with disabilities are sub-human and less worthy of life than “normal” people.

We simply cannot let this happen.

The Society of Professional Journalism (SPJ) is an organization that, in part, strives “to stimulate high standards and ethical behavior in the practice of journalism.” [5] As part of that, they have a Code of Ethics that gives guidance to journalists. We believe that this organization should include guidelines on writing ethically about disability. Doing this may lead more journalists to cover it the way they should: with respect.

The Petition:

Dear Society of Professional Journalism,

We believe that the press has immense power in our society. The simple act of stringing together words to form a story can do an incredible amount of good in our world…but it also has the potential to do just the opposite.

For too long now, journalism has been unintentionally harming some of the most overlooked individuals in our society: those with disabilities. Through subtle word choices and overarching tone, people with disabilities have been portrayed as burdens, sets of deficits, and objects of pity or inspiration for doing nothing out of the ordinary (called “inspiration porn”).To Top

New Guidelines for Pet Owners from CDC

onegreenplanet.org

By Eliza Erskine 4-5 minutes


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released new guidelines for pet owners and coronavirus. After two cats tested positive for the coronavirus in different parts of New York, the new guidelines are out to share with pet owners how to care for pets in the pandemic and how to keep them safe.

Public health officials stated that there is “no evidence” that pets are part of spreading the virus. The CDC stressed the importance of the need for additional information and testing to be able to provide specific guidelines for pet owners. The CDC recommends treating pets like family members and to practice social distancing for animals too.  In the meantime, the CDC has reocmmended:

  • “Do not let pets interact with people or other animals outside the household.
  • Keep cats indoors when possible to prevent them from interacting with other animals or people.
  • Walk dogs on a leash, maintaining at least 6 feet from other people and animals.
  • Avoid dog parks or public places where a large number of people and dogs gather.”

If you’re sick with coronavirus, suspected or confirmed, follow the CDC guidelines and let someone else care for your pet while you’re sick, avoid contact until you’re well and use face coverings and hand washing if you must care for your animal during your illness.

IDEXX Laboratories said it would be providing a COVID-19 test to veterinarians. The agency also said it would continue to provide updates as more information was available.

Petition: Tell the USDA to Stop Increasing Line Speed at Slaughterhouses

onegreenplanet.org

By Sharon Vega 2-3 minutes


During a pandemic that has exposed that humans’ treatment of animals leads to dangerous repercussions, there are still inhumane and cruel things being done. The United States Department of Agriculture has been quietly approving line speed waivers. This means that employees who themselves are already in danger must work at an increased pace to inhumanely kill more animals faster.

Line-speed waivers remove restrictions on how fast a meat plant’s line can move. There is already abuse and cruelty involved in killing animals and gutting and packing them as if they were objects, but to speed up the process blatantly proves there is no possibility of humanely handling the animals.

At one pork plant alone in South Dakota, 16 percent of the employees tested positive for COVID-19 — that’s 592 employees. These slaughterhouses don’t have the ability to effectively practice social distancing and provide protective gear to all employees, so they shouldn’t even be working. But Trump signed an executive order sending workers back to meat plants without protection.

Sign this petition telling the USDA to stop approving line-speed waivers which are inhumane and also endanger the workers who are already at risk.

Sign Petition STOP Disney- Last Chance for Lighthouse Point

change.org

Sign the Petition Lighthouse Point started this petition to The Walt Disney Company

There are plenty of places in the Bahamas where Disney can dock its cruise ships. There is only one Lighthouse Point. We are deeply concerned about Disney’s plans that threaten this unique natural place treasured by generations of Bahamians and visitors from around the world. The seas surrounding the point are so biologically rich that they have been formally proposed as a Marine Protected Area. This is NOT the place where an environmentally responsible corporation would choose to construct a massive private cruise ship port – the centerpiece of which is a half-mile-long pier cutting across coral reefs including endangered staghorn coral. The port’s construction and operation would seriously harm the environment, while the economic benefits to communities in South Eleuthera are still unclear and very questionable. Our planet’s oceans are already facing unprecedented pressures. Their future depends on the choices we make today to protect places like the proposed Lighthouse Point Marine Protected Area. Disney should follow the lead of other cruise companies that have chosen instead to rehabilitate already degraded areas for their cruise facilities. This is our last chance to protect Lighthouse Point for generations to come. Sign the petition to call upon Disney to secure a different, more suitable site for their cruise ship port and instead work with Bahamian citizen groups on a sustainable development alternative for Lighthouse Point.

Sign Petition: We Could See This Country’s Entire Rainforest Disappear in Our Lifetime 10-12 minutes by: Care2 Team recipient: The Government of Madagascar

But a new report from Nature Climate Change found that the cumulative effects of global warming and deforestation within that time will be enough to eliminate 100% of Madagascar’s rainforest. Every last inch of the island country’s rainforest will be gone. Many folks alive today would see this heartbreaking eventuality happen in their lifetime. Sign the petition today and urge the Government of Madagascar to take the strictest possible measures to protect its rainforests! While Madagascar alone is not responsible for human-induced climate change, its government can certainly take action against the potential massive loss of plant and animal life from deforestation. Contributing researchers to the shocking study suggest that “protected areas will help to mitigate this devastation while environmentalists work toward long-term solutions for ending runaway greenhouse gas emissions and resulting climate change.” To make the situation even more alarming, 80-90% of animal and plant species in Madagascar exist in its rainforest. If we fail to save this habitat, there will be a subsequent massive, irreversible loss of diversity and life. Of Madagascar’s 101 different lemur species, only 5% are not are not at risk of extinction in the near future. The ruffed lemur, described as a “cornerstone species” because of the critical role they play in bolstering the survival of other animals and plants, is critically endangered. As daunting as this may seem, we must use this study as an incentive. Please sign the petition and make the Government of Madagascar hear us – they must impose strict deforestation protections on their rainforest before it’s too late!

Sign the Petition Ashley Boeka started this petition to Coca-Cola At Davos 2020, Coca-Cola’s head of sustainability, Bea Perez, said that Coca-Cola will not stop producing single-use plastics because consumers “still want them.” She went on to say that it would alienate customers and impact Coca-Cola’s bottom line. “Customers like them because they reseal and are lightweight.” Needless to say, this is a disheartening thing to hear from the person in charge of sustainability at one of the largest companies in the world. Coca-Cola is one of the worst contributors to plastic pollution, producing about three million tons of plastic packaging a year – equivalent to 200,000 bottles a minute. In 2019, it was found to be the most polluting brand in a global audit of plastic waste by the charity Break Free from Plastic. Although Coca-Cola has made a pledge to recycle as many plastic bottles as possible by 2030, they are still flagrantly contributing to the world’s plastic waste, at a time when our planet cannot afford for LITERALLY ANYONE to solely be concerned about their cash flow. Coca-Cola is one of the most profitable companies in the world – they should be able to find a new, sustainable way to bottle their products to the satisfaction of their consumers. It’s the least they can do. Tell Coca-Cola that you DO NOT want them to produce or sell plastic bottles. Sign and Share today to say NO to Coca-Cola’s Plastic Plans.

Sign Petition: This Country Lost 60% of Its Rainforests in One Year and No One is Doing Anything About It

by: Care2 Team recipient: Ghanian Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation Scientists sometimes refer to rainforests as the “lungs of the Earth.” The millions or perhaps billions of trees that populate the world’s rainforests consume huge amounts of carbon dioxide and in turn, produce life-giving oxygen. Yet, it is no secret that over the past decades these collections of towering plants have been toppled in staggering numbers. Nowhere is this more pronounced than in Ghana, where the country has seen its forests disappear by a rate unmatched by any other. According to a study by Global Forest Watch, in just one year (2017-2018), the amount of forests lost in Ghana increased by a jaw-dropping 60%. Sign the demand Ghana take action to save their rainforests. In fact, so bad has deforestation become, that the country, once one of the world’s largest exporters may now have to import it to feed local supply. Rainforests globally hold biodiversity that is unrivaled. The Ghanaian rainforests provide habitat and shelter for animals on the brink of extinction including the mountain gorilla and the grey parrot which, despite being commonplace in pet stores, in the wild is disappearing fast. The main cause of their forest destruction is cocoa farming. Ghana is one of the world’s largest producers of cocoa and farmers have toppled entire swaths of the rainforest to make room for more cocoa plantations. These, and deforestation due to large and small scale mining, especially of bauxite leave the jungles of Ghana vulnerable from all sides. And yet, Ghanian government officials are doing nothing to stop the impending destruction of their natural heritage. According to Quartz, the government has recently signed a deal with China to allow mining in exchange infrastructure and a ban on small scale mining has been inexplicably lifted. Meanwhile, the agency that is supposed to safeguard environmental standards has been crippled by corruption. This is unacceptable. With the recent news that the world stands on the cusp of losing over 1 million species to extinction, it is now more imperative than ever that countries crack down on the practices that destroy the habitats where these animals live. Practices like mining and uncontrolled cocoa farming.

Stop killing dogs in Ukraine

sosvox.org

Stop killing dogs in Ukraine Because of the coronavirus, human stupidity, misinformation, and false information have killed thousands of cats and dogs in many countries around the world, including China, blaming them for the pandemic. Fortunately, it has been proven that animals do not transmit the virus, but many people do not know it and animals continue to suffer from torture and are killed in the worst possible ways. In China they have already stopped with the murder of dogs in their vast majority, but in countries like Ukraine they still think that they are responsible for or transmitters of the coronavirus, so they are shot, poisoned or beaten to death. They are captured, locked up in small cages where they all live piled high, and then killed without mercy, out of simple ignorance. We must ask the Ukrainian government and its President to do everything humanly possible to protect the lives of the dogs that are being brutally killed, because it has been shown that they do not transmit the virus nor are they responsible for the pandemic, on the contrary, they are as victims as us, or even more.

Petition:Netflix Series Promotes the Devil –Return to Order

A Special Campaign of the American TFP Return to Order Logo Netflix has resurrected a series titled Lucifer which centers around the devil as a “likeable” character and victim of an “overbearing” God. According to reports about the film: “Lucifer Morningstar” (the devil) is portrayed as “charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome”; Lucifer is described as “the son of God”; One female character is described as being the “ex-wife of Lucifer’s dad” (i.e., the ex-wife of God); In the show, Lucifer refers to God thus: “Hey, he’s my father, not yours. I can say whatever I want about the guy. I quit Hell because I was sick and tired of playing a part in Dad’s plan. I believe in free will, not the tyranny of all his predestination hoo-ha”; Lucifer continues: “Do you think I’m the devil because I’m inherently evil or simply because dear ol’ Dad decided I was?”; Clips show plenty of gyrating, scantily clad dancers, sexual innuendos, glorify a party lifestyle; Lucifer is portrayed as a fun loving young man while God and his angels are seen as apathetic and arbitrary. (Sources: ChristianNews.net; TV-Calling.com) This is a disfigurement of God’s order and reverses the roles of good and evil that God condemned: “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness…” (Isaias, 5:20) Please sign our petition, urging Netflix to cancel this blasphemous series. Sign your petition now!

Provide Love and Shelter for Pets of COVID-19 Victims – Animal Petitions

Beloved pets face neglect or even homelessness due to the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Dakin Humane Society in Massachusetts is allowing people who get seriously ill with coronavirus or COVID-19 to temporarily surrender their pets until they are well. Tell the Humane Society of the United States to put a similar program in place around the country so that owners who get sick can be reunited with their beloved pets after they recover from COVID-19.

This wicked man was witnessed slamming his dogs onto the ground, and dragging them across pavement!

Add your name if you want to punish him FOR REAL.

His name is Bryan Ellis.

He was seen by neighbors doing unspeakable things to two helpless dogs.

“They described Ellis picking up the white dog and throwing the dog to the ground several times, while also hitting the dog.

“One of the witnesses saw the white dog walk away limping and vomiting.

“The brown pit bull had been dragged along the road surface by Ellis and was now safe at a nearby home, also vomiting.

“Both dogs appeared badly injured according to all witnesses,” according to a statement from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.

“When deputies examined the brown dog, they say they noticed that its front paws were scraped and bleeding,” reported AZ Family.

All those poor dogs wanted to do was give this man their love.

All they got in return was horrible abuse.

What kind of human being could even think of doing this?

We have to protect innocent animals from people like Brian Ellis.

Senator Bernie Sanders has been a long-term advocate for animal rights, and has co-sponsored numerous pieces of legislation to protect endangered species, as well as to combat animal cruelty.

That’s why we’re asking him to lead a movement in Congress that would prevent convicted animal abusers from ever owning animals again.

Don’t you want to save other dogs from suffering the fate of those two?

Then add your name to ask Senator Sanders to draft legislation that would prohibit animal abusers from owning animals!

Demand That TikTok Immediately Ban All Animal Cruelty Videos | Take Action @ The Animal Rescue Site 4-5 minutes 24,326 signatures toward our 50,000 Goal Sponsor: The Animal Rescue Site Hurting or harassing an animal is not cool or funny; it is animal abuse and should be banned on all social media. Details Letter Signatures Hurting or harassing an animal is not cool or funny; it is animal abuse and should be banned on all social media. Tell the CEO and founder of TikTok to remove all videos that promote animal abuse, and to ban the users that uploaded them. Animal abuse is not entertainment! In February of 2020, Sun Online uncovered disturbing TikTok videos of users hitting animals in the head, slapping them, and tying their ears together with rubber bands, all for likes and followers.1 TikTok is a video sharing app which has over 500 million active users, most under the age of 25. They are young and impressionable, and they need to understand that animal cruelty will not be tolerated. A video showing an owner repeatedly slapping their dog on the back to the children’s tune, “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” was liked by over three million users. The dog was clearly distressed and attempted to bite the owner to make them stop. PETA spokesperson and director Elisa Allen responded to the videos by explaining, “they normalize treating animals disrespectfully, even physically abusing them, and there’s a risk of ‘copycat’ behavior by people who are desperate for publicity and attention – even the negative kind.”2 Although a TikTok spokesperson stated that “we have investigated every individual case that has been raised and removed all content that violates our Community Guidelines,”1 it took Sun Online conducting their own investigation, uncovering and publicizing these animal abuse videos, before TikTok removed them. TikTok’s Community Guidelines state that animal cruelty videos are not to be posted and will be removed and the user will be suspended or banned. However, the current monitoring system is not catching them.3 Demand immediate action by TikTok to stop promoting animal cruelty. Sign now! The Petition: To: Zhang Yiming, founder of TikTok: Please immediately remove all videos on TikTok that promote animal abuse. Animals are not objects to be used to gain popularity or likes. We need to show the world, and particularly your young users, that animal cruelty will not be tolerated by society – even online. Your Community Guidelines clearly state that animal cruelty videos are not to be posted. This policy needs to be enforced to protect animals and the millions of young users of your platform. There is nothing to ‘like’ about a challenge that encourages people to harass or harm an animal. We are sure you agree that animals deserve to be respected and treated as the loving companions they are. Animal abuse is a felony, and allowing users to post videos that promote and glorify animal cruelty is both inappropriate and harmful. Take a stand for animals and for a better world. Promptly remove all videos depicting animal cruelty, and ban the users who posted them. Your swift action is appreciated. Sincerely, Signatures:

PETITION: Stop Boiling Black Cats And Grinding them into Paste for ‘Coronavirus Treatment’

ladyfreethinker.org PETITION: Stop Boiling Black Cats And Grinding them into Paste for ‘Coronavirus Treatment’ 2 minutes

Representative Image via Adobe Stock Sign This Petition PETITION TARGET: Vietnamese Ambassador to the U.S. Ha Kim Ngoc Innocent black cats are being boiled alive, skinned, and ground up into powders and pastes in Vietnam in a horrifying attempt to treat and prevent coronavirus. Haunting images of live cats being immersed in boiling water, rows of feline corpses drying in the sun, people preparing and packaging the disturbing concoction, and a baby drinking what appears to be the ‘elixir’ surfaced after workers from the charity No to Dog Meat released shocking video footage. The trade in this sickening solution is booming in Hanoi, and the mixture is even being advertised and sold online. There’s zero scientific credibility behind the belief that ingesting cats in any form protects against COVID-19; on the contrary, mounting evidence shows that the live animal trade puts humans at risk of catching deadly illnesses from animals. As people the world over become increasingly aware of the dangers associated with the cruel and unhygienic live animal trade, torturing these poor creatures for any reason represents a blatant step backward for both animal rights and public health. The needless slaughter of helpless cats based on bad information must end. Sign this petition urging the Vietnamese Ambassador to the U.S., Ha Kim Ngoc, to push for a countrywide ban on this brutal practice and to educate citizens about the dangers of killing and ingesting these animals.

Sign Petition: Demand an end to live animal markets in the United States

thepetitionsite.com

Sign Petition: Demand an end to live animal markets in the United States 2 minutes Urge the USDA to end live animal markets Stop pandemics where they start. Live animal markets place the public in grave danger, and result in immense cruelty to animals. Most infectious diseases can be traced back to animals, including COVID-19. The original reservoir for SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for causing COVID-19, is likely bat in origin. SARS-CoV-2 may have found a secondary host (e.g. pangolins) before mutating to a human host. The large live animal markets in China provide a perfect breeding ground for a pandemic. So do the livestock auctions and live animal markets of the United States. Now is the time to put an end to live animal markets. Add your name to the growing list of concerned citizens who want to stop pandemics where they start. Auctions confine animals from different farms in overcrowded pens, sometimes for days. Healthy animals are housed with sick ones. The dead may be left for hours or days before removal from a pen. In the United States, live animal markets sell a variety of species for slaughter, either onsite or privately. Studies show that employees at these markets often test positive for viruses that originate in animals. In one Minnesota study, 65% of employees at two live animal markets tested positive for influenza of swine origin. Sign our petition today and demand an end to live animal markets in the United States.

Petition: ban lion trophy hunting imports into the UK

change.org

Sign the Petition Pieter Kat started this petition to Conservative Party Leader Boris Johnson and 6 others

The body parts of lions killed in gruesome hunts are being bought and imported into our country as ‘hunting trophies’. To hunt these beautiful animals for fun is inhumane and wrong – but it’s also contributing to the rapid decline of lion numbers. That’s why I’m calling on lion trophy hunting imports to be banned immediately. I lived and worked for two decades in several African countries to help the conservation of lions there and I’m now the director of Lion Aid. It pains me that their numbers continue to drop. The number of lions in Africa has decreased from over 200,000 to less than 15,000 within the past 50 years. Most of the ‘trophies’ are male lions. This has a disastrous knock on effect, pride structures are disrupted, reproduction almost grinds to a halt as cub survival is severely affected, and mortality among females increases as they attempt to protect their cubs during encounters with more and more displaced males. We must immediately stop our involvement in this cruel trade of lions killed for fun, like others around the world have. Australia, France and the Netherlands have already banned lion trophy imports. Why have we not yet joined them in doing so? In 2010 and 2015 promises were made by British MPs about introducing a ban, but years later nothing has happened. Every single day we delay makes it more and more likely that we push lions towards extinction. Please sign my petition calling on the UK to immediately ban imports of Lion trophies.

Demand the Trump administration supply the USPS with the funding it needs! 2 minutes As USPS struggles due to the coronavirus, Trump is refusing all funding for this essential service. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is suffering. Due to coronavirus, mail volume has dropped significantly and, as essential workers, postal workers are still risking their lives on the front lines of the pandemic. The USPS needs relief from our government. But Trump is refusing to give aid to this essential service, even going so far as to threaten to veto any legislation that includes grants or funding to support USPS. The USPS is an American institution that has been with us since our nation’s founding. It connects us to distant family and friends, delivers medication, paychecks, and online packages, and even brings us communications from the government. And now, as voting by mail is quickly becoming a crucial part of our elections due to coronavirus, millions of voters will rely on the USPS to get voters their ballots in time. That’s why we’re calling on Trump to stop tearing down the USPS and get them the funding they need to weather this economic crisis. Sign on now!

Sign the Petition: We need strict laws to ban illegal killing and selling of small animals

“The new COVID-19 coronavirus, SARS, MERS, Ebola, Avian Influenza, and Swine Flu are all derived from animals. Serious rethinking of the food animal industries is called for, and we need strict laws banning the illegal killing and selling of small animals.” Thanks to our modern global transportation systems, we can travel from one side of the world to the other in a day, and buy and sell goods from other countries with ease. But this also means that diseases can spread at the same speed and ease. Viruses emerging in one country or region are no longer only that country’s or region’s problem. Recent Instances of Fatal Viruses from Animals Swine Flu is a variant of a family of influenza viruses found in pigs and is possibly the result of gene exchange between the influenza viruses of humans, birds and pigs, all with which pigs can be infected. The fatality rate is under 1%, but it is so easily transmitted that it has been reported that globally around 203,000 people died. Avian Flu was first found to have infected humans in 1997 in Hong Kong. It is transmitted via the feces and secretion of birds. This virus spread not only in Asia but to Europe and Africa, and killed around 17,000 people, with an additional 400 people dying from its variants. Ebola, which first occurred in 1976 and rose to notoriety in 2014, was originally found in artibeus jamaicensis, the Jamaican fruit bat, and infected humans who consumed their meat, or the meat of the apes that also ate these bats. The fatality rate is 30~90%. 10,000 people died during the epidemic. MERS occurred in 2012 and looks to have been transmitted to humans from camels. It infected more than 1,000 people, killing 400 from 2012 to 2015. SARS, with a fatality rate of 11%, originated from an outdoor market in Guangdong, China in November 2002. This coronavirus spread to humans from wild civets initially from a cook who cooked their meat, followed by the doctor who treated him. The disease became a world epidemic via Hong Kong, Singapore, and Vietnam killing around 770 people, most of them in Asia. Spanish Flu, known to have begun in 1918, infected 500 million people and is estimated to have killed between 17 million to over 50 million people worldwide. It is the worst contagious disease in the history of mankind, killing more people than both world wars. Recent research has revealed that Spanish Flu was a variant of the H1N1 coronavirus, to which Swine Flu and Avian Flu are also related. It’s quite possible that it’s yet another variant that is threatening the world today. Development and Spread of New Viruses These viruses that have occurred over the last few years around the world—SARS, MERS, Ebola, Swine Flu, Avian Flu, and the new COVID-19 coronavirus—have one thing in common; they have spread to humans through cross-species transmission (CST) due to close proximity with infected animals. In particular, SARS, MERS, and COVID-19 are all coronaviruses, pathogens found in various animal species, the ultimate source of which is as yet unknown. The new COVID-19 coronavirus is strongly suspected of being derived from infected pangolins and transmitted to humans from contact while being sold in a market in the city of Wuhan in central China. Contagious diseases are quicker to spread between individuals of the same or different species when they are in close proximity to one another, such as in farms, markets, and slaughterhouses. There are large and small markets all over China where all sorts of wild animals are secretly traded and small animals, including stolen cats and dogs, are all shut up in cages. They are slaughtered and cooked on the spot, or their meat is taken somewhere else. Their blood, feces and other secretions are spread on clothing, on hands, and the ground. It is the perfect environment for the spread of infection, both within and between species. Then there are other cities in China, like Hebei, the world’s largest leather producer. Within the city, the manufacturing, rendering, storage, and sale of animal carcasses and fur are often carried out in people’s homes. There are mounds of fox and raccoon pelts on the ground in the street auctions. The furs of wild animals are stored and hung in the windows of department stores. In South Korea, there are illegal dog slaughterhouses and the illegal slaughter of small animals in street markets all throughout the country. And Korea is the only country in the world to have dog farms, in which dogs are raised in large groups in unsanitary conditions for their meat. Korean dog farms often breed chickens alongside the dogs, and the two species are slaughtered in the same facility. Activists from CARE encountered both chickens and dogs infected with influenza at the same slaughterhouse in 2018. In one cage, 10% of the 300 chickens were already dead from influenza. In other cages lay the bodies of dead dogs, and infected dogs coughing up blood. We already know that the influenza virus can be transmitted to other species, so it is not beyond possibility—and may only be a matter of time—before another deadly variant arises from the close proximity of infected chickens and dogs, and humans in these slaughterhouses. CARE warned the government of the dangers of influenza rampant in the dog farms and slaughterhouses of Korea and demanded an investigation. As of yet, there has been no answer. How To Stop Future Infections China announced the shutting down of wild animal markets for the time being, in order to restrict contact with the animals thought to be the cause of the recent COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. Furthermore, China is pursuing a ban on the trade in wild animals altogether. However, a simple ban on the sale and slaughter of wild animals is not enough. These markets are also selling other small animals, like dogs and cats. The Korean government recommends thoroughly cooking meat, just as it did in the mad cow disease crisis. However, without solving the fundamental problem, mere preventive measures for humans are not enough. Avoiding the consumption of meat is not enough, because the process of rearing and slaughtering animals for meat is itself a potential cause of contagion. This peripheral treatment of the problem only highlights the fact that profits are considered more important than human lives. Quite apart from the animal rights perspective, we must make a decision about the slaughtering of all small animals, whether wild, or domesticated and not traditionally considered food animals, like dogs and cats, or considered food animals like chickens, because without laws in place, they are vulnerable to illegal and unregulated trade and slaughter, with the potential threats to human well-being outlined above. Serious Thought Needed It is not much of an overstatement to say that our problems began with capturing wild animals and their domestication into farm animals. The development of civilization and the consequent rise in population necessitated the need for ever more efficient ways of producing food. Our meat-eating culture developed mass food animal farming and methods, which, along with the stress and suffering these methods cause and the selective breeding for individuals that produce more food, has made the food animal production industries ideal environments for the development of spread of new viruses. It then takes just one cross-species transmission event to produce a human epidemic. Our excessive animal-derived-food-consuming culture and food animal industries must be reconsidered as a global priority. If we don’t address this issue, not only will the abuse and suffering of billions of animals continue, and not only will these industries continue to pollute our environment, consume ever more resources, and contribute to climate change, but it’s entirely possible that the next time a new virus jumps from a non-human to a human in a factory farm, a slaughterhouse, or a market, we won’t be able to combat it.
