Amazon Must Stop Selling Animal Parts and Cruel Hunting Equipment

Amazon-box-by-Mike-Seyfang

Target: Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon

Goal: Stop selling animal parts and specimens as well as barbaric hunting equipment used to cruelly trap wild animals.

While Amazon India has stopped selling animal specimens as well as snares and traps, Amazon U.S. continues to profit from these cruel products. The Indian branch of the online retail giant has agreed to remove traps, snares and animal specimens from its listings after animal welfare group Wildlife SOS urged it to do so on compassionate grounds.

Wildlife SOS’ campaign included sharing the story of Rose, a young sloth bear who lost her leg after being trapped in a snare similar to those sold by Amazon. Unfortunately, Amazon U.S. and some of its other international affiliates continue to sell these cruel traps, as well as live and dead animals and their parts. Snares and traps severely harm animals in the wild, and so does the wildlife trade, which captures, confines, breeds and ships sentient animals for profit, as though they were mere objects.

Sign this petition urging Amazon to show compassion and recognize that animals are sentient creatures that are not ours to profit from. Ask them to drop these inhumane hunting devices as well as animal specimens and parts from its website.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Bezos,

Amazon India has just taken a huge step forward for animals by removing all listings for snares, traps and animal specimens. Unfortunately, Amazon U.S. and other international affiliates continue to sell and profit from these cruel products.

Snares trap wild animals, and sometimes pets, leaving them to suffer and starve. Meanwhile, selling live and dead animals and their parts for profit is unjustifiable in the 21st century, as people increasingly acknowledge that animals are not objects to sell and trade for money.

Please follow in Amazon India’s compassionate footsteps and ban all hunting devices and live and dead animals specimens from being sold on your retail platform.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
