Punish Suspected Poachers for Poisoning Over 100 Elephants

Target: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe

Goal: Punish suspected poachers under the fullest extent of the law if found responsible for poisoning over 100 elephants in Zimbabwe.

A suspected elephant poacher has been captured after fleeing officials for over four years. He, along with at least two others, is believed to have poisoned over 100 elephants in and around Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. In the last month alone, it is believed that a dozen elephants were killed after they gathered at cyanide-laced salt licks.

The most recent deaths sparked an intense manhunt for the poachers, resulting in the capture of these three men. Given the fact that Hwange National Park has been given international attention following the death of Cecil the Lion and most recently, his cub Xanda, it is vital that protections for wildlife be increased in and around the park.

If these three suspected poachers are found guilty, they must be punished under the fullest extent of the law to deter potential copycats. Sign this petition to urge officials to seek justice for the cruel and senseless poisoning of these elephants.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Mugabe,

Hwange National Park has lost over 100 elephants in recent years due to cyanide poisoning. Now that there are three suspected poachers in custody who are believed to be responsible, it is necessary that justice be sought for the rampant killing of these intelligent and sociable creatures.

Elephants across Africa are in need of our help. The illicit ivory trade has emboldened poachers to try a variety of measures, including poisoning, to kill elephants for their tusks.

If these poachers are found guilty of having caused the cyanide-related deaths in Hwange, they must be be given the maximum penalty and be severely punished for their crimes. To do any less is to risk the future of Zimbabwe’s elephants.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Well, if it were my law, I’d have them drawn and quartered before a large crowd, their cries of mercy drowned out by laughter from said crowds.

  2. I want to know the date these articles were written? I need to know how long ago these incidents had occurred. Is there any reason why none of your articles have dates? It just makes sense to know when things are happening in real time. Thank you for all your efforts in protecting animal rights and other political rights.

  3. If they are guilty, they should definitely get maximum penalty.
    The government should also go after the TRADERS and BUYERS. If these poachers are removed and imprisoned, the traders and buyers will just replace them with other poachers. They need to find and prosecute the HEADS of these poaching organizations or the operations will just continue.

  4. DEATH PENALTY FOR THESE KILLERS NOW TO SHOW WE DO NOT TOLERATE KILLING OF SACRED WILDLIFE NOW TO SEND A MESSAGE TO OTHER POACHERS , IT IS WAR NOW FOR THE WILDLIFE.

  5. Robert Mugabe is a whore bought and paid for by China. This syphillis ridden monster should die already so that his people can live. And the animals can live in peace. He will go down in history along with Amin as the some of the most verminous traitorous rats of civilization.

  6. Death penalty for sure. No mercy.

  7. Patricia Dumais says:

    Zimbabwe is one of the worst countries on Earth regarding animal protection. Its president Robert Mugabe recently celebrated a birthday by eating a baby elephant! And we are asking him for help?

  8. Absolutely maximum penalty!

  9. These people are just purely poisonous to society, killing innocent beings? Let’s poison them!

  10. This piece of shit should be quartered in a public display.

  11. POISON THESE COWARDS WITH BATTERY ACID AND ANTIFREEZE ALL COMBINED!

  12. I’m in agreement with Cathy. Please put a date and some sort of substantiation with these petitions. I sign petitions all day long and gladly share them. But I cannot waste time and energy trying to run down the facts or if the petition is out-dated.

  13. Kathy Terrell says:

    just give him cyanide and save everyone time and money. They aren’t worth it.

  14. It’s time hold all those responsible for authorizing and overseeing the implementation of torture against fellow EARTH inhabitants & creatures accountable. A special prosecutor is the most comprehensive way to do that.  
    THE ASSHOLE – STYLE IS TO STOP!

    FOR ALL OF THESE GREED AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?
    Stop & pursue this criminal rabble and this deformity  –  instantly!
    BARBARIC, GREED AND BRAINLESS and not able to think human?

  15. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    These mutha fckrs need to DIE a miserable, horrible & prolonged death❗️😠
    Signed & shared 😡

  16. Punishing the poachers, even when executed, will do little. The culprits are in Asia, save and sound. Africa, like the rest of the world, is bought up, bribed by the wealthy.
