Stop the Killing of Hibernating Wildlife

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Overturn resolution that allows hunters to kill defenseless, hibernating animals.

Due to the U.S. Senate’s recent overturning of certain U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulations, hunters will be allowed to kill hibernating bear and wolf families in their dens, shoot wildlife from planes, use steel-jaw leg-hold traps and wire snares, and use food to lure grizzly bears close to shoot them at point-blank range. On 76 million acres of federal wildlife refuge in Alaska, countless animals are in danger from these practices and it is time to speak up for these innocent animals.

The unregulated killing of predators is not only inhumane, it could also wreak havoc on delicate ecosystems. This issue is not merely a political one, but an ethical one. Sign this petition and demand the president overturn this bill.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

Recently, the U.S. Senate voted in favor of S.J.Res.18 which allows barbaric hunting practices on 76 million acres of federal wildlife refuge in Alaska. Countless innocent animals are now in danger of cruel and unfair hunting practices.

Hunters are now allowed to enter bear and wolf dens during hibernation to kill the mother and her babies, shoot wildlife from planes, use steel-jaw leg-hold traps and wire snares, and use food to lure grizzly bears close to shoot them at point-blank range. Hunters claim the fun is in the chase, but all of these practices take advantage of vulnerable animals. The unregulated killing of predators is inhumane and could wreak havoc on delicate ecosystems.

Please consider overturning S.J.Res.18. These hunting practices are incredibly cruel, barbaric, and unethical. Wildlife must be defended, not ruthlessly killed off.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This bill is absolutely horrendous. Giving hunters the go-ahead to go on sadistic killing sprees against innocent animals is extremely barbaric. Besides all the brutal methods of killing they are allowed to use, the fact that they are allowed to kill defenseless HIBERNATING bear and wolf families in their dens, takes hunting to a new low, and is utterly despicable.
    And all this is on a WILDLIFE REFUGE. What a travesty.
    The U.S. government needs to stop it’s shameful kowtowing to hunters and the hunting lobby.

  2. THIS IS A WILDLIFE REFUGE. ALASKA WILL TAKE A HIT ON TOURISM IF THERE ARE NO WILD ANIMALS TO SEE. THIS IS SENSELESS AND HAS NO PURPOSE BUT TO LINE THE POCKETS OF THOSE WHO DELIGHT IN THE MURDER OF MOTHERS AND BABIES AND ALSO THOSE ANIMALS WHO HAVE NO DEFENSE TO SNIPER FIRE FROM AIRPLANES.

  3. What a sham of a President – WORST EVER. But people should have known better, given the Trump family’s WELL KNOWN penchant for and delight in hunting animals. Ethics? WHAT ethics? Wildlife and ecosystems will be decimated, as well as in other countries in tandem, taking great pleasure in having animals tortured by barbaric implements that should have been outlawed years ago. The US is now under a dictatorship, not a democracy, so this appeal will fall on deaf ears.

    You people are ridiculous and are allowing the media to tell you what to think. This is exactly why Alaska needs to regulate ourselves. Our Professional Wildlife Biologists are far more aware of our wildlife needs than some ding dongs in Washington DC. You apparently think the 750,000 people who live in the entire state, which by population density make that less than one person per square mile, are stupid. We life a big wild life here. I see moose everyday, I eat salmon every year. I have had bears come into my garage and a mother beat nurse her cubs on my lawn. I live in Kenai Alaska. There are over 10,000 people in the general area. We are very aware of our wildlife. We want to be able to regulate it. So shut up and worry about your own state.

    • You need to “regulate” yourselves?? That’s the term you use for the brutal and sadistic killing of defenseless wild animals on a wildlife refuge?
      Your Orwellian Newspeak may work for you, but those of us who care about animals don’t buy it.

    How atrocious this is! I am outraged that the leaders of this country would even consider such a thing! This is undeniably cruel and destructive; this should not be happening! America’s wildlife must be protected! Why must humanity wage this war on creatures that are just trying to survive? We have already pushed them out of their homes with our cities and farms and pushed certain species into endangerment with hunting such as this. Remember the buffalo! We do not want to lose more animals! Our coexistence with animals is the essence of our very being. Yet heartless, malicious individuals are invading these animals’ last refuge and slaughtering them! This isn’t hunting! This is murder and has to stop!

  6. UNACCEPTABLE TO KILL NATURE THE EARTH NEEDS NOW TO OPERATE NORMAL NOW.

  7. Marion Whittington says:

    This is horrible and I believe will need to really be publicized everywhere. I have never heard of anything so cruel in my life. I already told my senator off about this. Now I am going to write a few more people. This is disgusting. This is murder not hunting murder.

  8. Diane Moffat says:

    I can barely comprehend that in this day an age people would actually kill a mother bear and her cubs in cold blood for no reason. To take out wolves and their families is also the most barbaric thing I have yet to hear from the Trump presidency. Mr Trump, I have always thought you were a scary man and God help us if it ever comes down to pressing the button but to massacre defenceless animals is just a total abomination of your power.
