Target: Mayor Pak Fetrat of Shiraz
Goal: Stop the inhumane killing of stray dogs using acid.
In Iran, stray dogs are being executed by injecting acid into their veins, causing the animals an agonizingly slow and painful death. This inhumane method needs to stop immediately.
The Shiraz Municipality has taken on the task of dealing with the city’s stray dog problems by hiring contract killers who go out, round up large groups of innocent dogs, hold them down and inject acid into their veins. They then look on, holding the animal down as the animals die a slow and painful death, screaming and writhing in pain.
Nothing deserves to be killed in such a terrible way. These poor creatures are innocent enough, as their only crime is simply being born. To put any living creature to death in such a way is unfathomable. But the people in charge of their executions seek simple and cheap ways to end the dogs’ lives. An animal’s life is a precious thing, and though they don’t deserve to die at all, they at the very least should be given a humane and painless end.

Sign this petition to tell Mayor Pak Fetrat of Shiraz to stop allowing the city’s stray dogs to be killed in such a vicious and cruel way.
Dear Mayor Pak Fetrat,
It has come to the attention of the international animal loving community that stray dogs in your city are being killed through terrible and inhumane means. Contract killers are injecting acid into the dogs’ veins and watching them die a slow and painful death, screaming and writhing in agony.
This is an outright tragedy. So many innocent animals, whose only fault is being born, are being killed in a way that no living creature deserves. It saddens me and many others to know that you are allowing this to go on in your city.
The killers are trying to save money using this barbaric and almost sadistic method, but there is no cutting corners when it comes to taking the life of an innocent creature. This current course of action simply will not do and is inexcusable. I and countless others around the world implore you to take alternative actions in dealing with the stray dog population within your city.
Stop the inhumane killing of these dogs. Find a different, more humane way of solving this problem. These animals deserve at least that much.
[Your Name Here]
