Stop Selling Eagles on Facebook

Target: Indonesian Attorney-General HM Prasetyo

Goal: Severely punish the man who was allegedly found selling protected eagles on Facebook and keeping them in abusive conditions.

Indonesian police arrested a man who was allegedly found selling protected eagles on Facebook and keeping the innocent animals in cages and cardboard boxes. The police found 14 eagles including white-bellied sea eagles and spotted kestrels, as well as five eaglets. Eagles are protected birds in Indonesia, so selling them is illegal and is a serious animal trafficking crime.

Four of the poor birds have died since they were rescued from this man’s horrible operation. The police found this sickening man by posing as wildlife buyers. They say the man was allegedly selling the eagles online for nearly six months. He sold eaglets for 750,000 rupiah ($56) and adult birds for up to five million rupiah each.

It’s very fortunate that most of the birds were able to be rescued before more of them died or were sold off to live in even worse conditions. However this man needs to pay for his horrific crime against these majestic animals. Demand this man receives the maximum punishment under Indonesian law for his terrible crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney-General HM Prasetyo,

Indonesian police arrested a man who was allegedly found selling protected eagles on Facebook and keeping the innocent animals in cages and cardboard boxes. The police found 14 eagles including white-bellied sea eagles and spotted kestrels, as well as five eaglets.

Four of the poor birds have died since they were rescued from this man’s horrible operation. Fortunately most of the birds were able to be rescued before more of them died or were sold off to live in even worse conditions, but this man needs to pay for his horrific crime against these majestic animals. I urge you to make sure this man receives the maximum punishment under Indonesian law for his terrible crime.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is a terrible act of cruelty this person deserves the max for his cruel crime

  2. Sam Outhorn says:

    How come the Indonesians have no rules protecting wildlife and the environment, and cannot sufficiently educate their people so this kind of cruelty would not happen? Start at the roots, I say, and prevent similar occurrences once and for all!

    • Sam Outhorn, You really nailed it. And I am in full accord with your answer. Stop it where the people who are clueless as to their cruel acts and educate them on what they are doing and how horrible it is. Nicely done.

  3. I can’t believe this is real, but I can’t say that I’m surprised. There seems to be no limit to the amount of depravity humans are capable of.

  4. Jan Bowden says:

    When will scum humans stop exploiting animals as commodities…. STOP eating them, selling them, wearing them, hunting them….
    And PUNISH severely where it hurts (their pockets) when this exploitation takes place… Arghhh so fed up with signing so many petitions to help all the poor animals….

  5. Sam Outhorn I totally agree with U! Educate the people at ground roots!

  6. GREEDY MONSTERS WHO DON’T CARE ABOUT OR THINK ABOUT ANYTHING BUT THEM SELVES IS WHAT OUR WORLD IS FULL OF AND THIS MUST STOP AND STOP NOW. WE MUST HAVE SEVERE LAWS THAT HAVE VERY SEVERE PUNISHMENT THAT IS ENFORCED TO STOP THESE MONSTERS BEFORE THERE ARE NO WILD ANIMALS LEFT IN THE WILD OR ANYWHERE ELSE BECAUSE OF THEM.
    JAIL THIS GUY FOR 20 YEARS, FINE HIM THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, TAKE HIS VISA AND PASSPORT SO HE CAN’T TRAVEL W/O THE AUTHORITIES KNOWING WHAT HE IS UP TO……MAKE A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THIS CREEP SO THIS WILL STOP.

  7. THIS IS AGAINST THE LAW! FEDERAL LAW! ENOUGH SAID!

  8. All for supporting good causes but this man has been arrested and will be facing the courts. I don’t really agree with intefering in the legal system. The courts are there for a reason

  9. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser
