Shut Down Ranch That Slaughters Endangered Species

Target: Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas

Goal: Shut down Texas ranch that profits off the execution of endangered animals.

A ranch in Texas collects endangered species and allows hunters to legally execute them. The Ox Ranch in Texas profits greatly off this execution of endangered antelopes, bongos, and more. Sometimes the ranch earns tens of thousands of dollars off one animal killed by trophy hunters. For example, they charge $35,000 to shoot and kill an African bongo antelope.

The ranch argues that it does good work by keeping some endangered species, like giraffes, alive. The chief executive of the ranch stated, “We love the animals, and that’s why we hunt them.” However, this ranch allows the slaughter of endangered species. The preservation of one species does not justify the slaughter of another.

The ranch is a giant financial success, with a private runway, luxury cabins, and more land than the island of Manhattan. It was sold for $200 million in 2012.

Unfortunately, neither the Endangered Species Act nor hunting regulations are sufficient to protect these exotic animals. This must change now. The ranch cannot greenwash the slaughter by claiming that the killing is actually good for endangered animals. Sign the petition and demand regulations be put in place to shut down exotic animal hunting at Ox Ranch and other “ranches” like it.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Abbott,

Ox Ranch in Texas profits off the slaughter of endangered animals. Bongos, antelopes, and more are being executed while Ox Ranch makes money on the slaughter. These exotic animals should be protected, not murdered.

Ox Ranch tries to claim that it is helping to conserve some animals by using the funds raised from the execution of others to pay for food and shelter. However, this is cruel and hypocritical. I demand that the Texas government work to enact policy that shuts down the brutal activity at Ox Ranch for good.

Sincerely,

  1. These murderous, wicked, rich, cowardly monsters that love to kill so much, should be in jail with a huge bail fee which should be immediately donated to every Shelter and Sanctuary and the homeless (both human and animal) in the US. This horrible death activity is a huge sin against both animals and people who could have had a better life with the money that is in the hands of cruel, evil ego-driven, selfish, sadists.

  2. BUNCH OF WORTHLESS LOSERS, SHOOT AND KILL EACH OTHER!!

  3. SHUT DOWN THIS ENDANGERED SPECIES KILLING PLACE FOR GOOD TO END THESE CRUEL LIFE TAKERS OF GREAT SACRED NATURE NOW.

    “We love the animals and that’s why we hunt them.”

    Well, THAT makes sense – about as much as:

    I love my children, that’s why I murdered them.

    I love my wife, that’s why I rape her.

    Are these people crazy or just stupid?

    This is SO far beyond congnitive dissonance, this is simple PERVERSION and GREED. Texas-style.

  6. Bunch of arseholes stop this now wheres Justice for these animals

    The Ox Ranch’s chief executive states, “We love the animals, and that’s why we hunt them.” What kind of asshole convoluted f’d up logic is that? Is this moron married with children? His family must not sleep too well at night. I wouldn’t. But then again, I wouldn’t be married to someone like that for all the money and possessions in the world.

    What concerns me is that good ol’ boy attitude that seems prevalent down there. Let’s hope that Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, is more concerned with endangered animals than he is with his wallet. Fingers crossed.

  8. HOW CAN THIS EVIL BE ALLOWED TO GO ON IN THE USA AND IT BE LEGAL, THIS WOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN IN AUSTRALIA, SHUT DOWN THIS OX RANCH NOW AND SAVE ALL THESE ANIMALS TO A SANCTURY WHERE THEY WILL BE SAFE FROM THESE MURDEROUS COWARDLY MORONS, NO NORMAL PERSON WITH A NORMAL BRAIN WOULD EVEN THINK OF HAVING FUN KILLING ANIMALS SPECIALLY ENDANGERED ANIMALS, THESE NONE HUMANS HAVE TO BE MENTALY DERAINGED PLEASE SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN NOW.

    “Ye must not only have kind and merciful feelings for mankind, but ye should also exercise the utmost kindness towards every living creature.
    The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent”. Baha’i Faith Writings

  10. JUSTICE……………PLEASE!!
