Stop Country Club From Slaughtering Raccoons

Target: Paul O’Dell, Director of Miami Springs Golf and Country Club

Goal: Stop the slaughter of dozens of raccoons on the grounds of Miami Springs Golf and Country Club.

An exterminator is going to kill dozens of raccoons who live on the grounds of the Miami Springs Golf and Country Club. This method of animal control is inhumane and ineffective. These raccoons have called this place their home and are about to be killed for it.

When there is a decline in a population, food supply goes up and the remaining animals reproduced more. It would be more effective if the club used land modifications and lessened the available food supplies. This would deter the raccoons to other areas that better fit their needs.

Sign this petition and urge Miami Springs to use the more humane way of animal control and to stop the raccoon slaughter.


Dear Mr. O’Dell,

A large group of raccoons currently live on the grounds of your golf and country club, Miami Springs. Please do not use an exterminator to kill the raccoons. This method of animal control is inhumane and ineffective.

When there is a decline in a population, food source availability goes up and then the remaining animals reproduce more. Therefore, slaughtering a large number of raccoons will not effectively remove the population living on your grounds.

Instead, you should consider using land modifications and lessening the amount of available food. With these changes, the raccoons will move to find an area that will better suit their needs. Please consider this humane and effective option.

    An exterminator is going to kill dozens of raccoons who live on the grounds of the Miami Springs Golf and Country Club. This method of animal control is an absolute disgrace and absolutely sickening that they can get away with the unimaginable slaughter of these precious Raccoons.
    This murder of the innocent Raccoons must not be allowed. The American have a lot to answer for when it comes to the murder and slaughter of the innocent Wildlife because of the human species sadism and evilness.

    These really are selfish human beings.

  3. anita culling says:

    Disgraceful. Humans spread themselves out and take wildlife habitat until they have nowhere to go.
    Totally SELFISH SELF OBSESSED people. Come on you people STOP being so heartless. Shameful.

  4. “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

  5. Lilian Caughlin says:

    What about relocation in other areas. Killing is always on top of the list. Besides being cruel there are no innovative ideas brought forth by obviously very limited ‘thinkers’.

  6. Lisa Allred Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Signed & Shared.

  7. Raccoons were there before you came to play your game of golf. All those golf course owners and the players alike, why don’t you all start using those clubs and murdering each other. That would be more fun to watch. STOP this evil and such vicious act of Murder of innocent animals simply because you idiots need to play a game of golf. You people are the ones should get rid of & from this world. So the world will be a bit better place after that. Such ruthless individuals should not be allowed to exist on this planet earth.

  8. The owners of this Club need to find a better solution to whatever disturbance these innocent animals are causing besides killing them, which they don’t deserve. They’re born thru the same power of creation we all are & seeking only to live from that point, as we all are. A little compassion, innovative thinking & most of all mercy is what they deserve. Please.

  9. What is wrong with people?! Why do people have to be so CRUEL?! There is no excuse for hurting animals. They are part of Nature. We are encroaching on THEIR territory – THEIR environments. Leave the animals alone – humans and wildlife can coexist together.
