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,

[Your Name Here]

  1. That wins my vote for the most stupid comment ever. The CEO of this ranch says “We love the animals, that’s why we hunt them”. I rest my case!

  2. Jeannine Williamson says:

    A ranch run for, and by, total morons. The only thing the CEO loves is profiting from this ridiculous place. Utterly shameful.

  3. Continuing to enhance its reputation for having the most sociopathic murderous domestic-terrorist-NRA supporting inbred trumptard scum….yeah that’s tex-ass. hopefully the dangerous redneck pieces of shit that practice this twisted pastime will be shot and killed by their fellow child molesters and serial killers-in-waiting in hunting accidents

  4. Patricia James says:

    Stupid fucking Americans again! Boy, your country has alot to answer for. These animals are endangered for a reason. Because of assholes like you?

    • Not ALL Americans are idiots. We could lump your country into one type of people too. But that would just be IGNORANT, now wouldn’t it. Just as ignorant as killing these innocent animals!

  5. Stephanie Geyser says:

    When I first read the heading of the petition, I thought it was aimed at the tyrant dictator Mad Bob Mugabe of Zimbabwe. Shame on you Texas – you think you are brave Americans – but you are no better than the Tyrant of Zimbabwe.

  6. Isn’t it unsurprising that this piece of mindless slaughter comes from brainfree texas? Do you have to be stupid to be a texan?

  7. Who do they think they’re kidding. If they loved the animals they would be saving them not allowing the scum of tbe earth to kill tmem! All they care about is making vast sums of money from the suffering and deaths of endangered species

  8. Sonja Beyer says:

    Trophy hunting should be banned everwhere – “we love the animals and that’s why we hunt them” is the most disgusting reason for this kind of killing I have ever heard. All that is important to them is to make lots of money!

  9. Texans do NOT want this type of stupidity in our state. Run these moronic stupid freaks out of business!! Come on Texans!

  10. Tina shurtleff says:

    Only cowards shoot trapped tame endangered animals. And to love something is to save it not kill it. Shut this idiocy down. Hunters are not conservationists.

  11. MORE EVIL REDNECK SLAUGHTER! WHEN WILL THIS INSANITY STOP?

  12. Texas need I say more. This idiot CEO needs to be put outto be hunted. Lets have a human canned hunt. What the hell is wrong with these lowlifes that hunt this way. $$$$ are the only thing this ranch loves not its animals. Must be brain dead to even say he loves the animals. No real men here.

  13. Cherie Combes says:

    “We love the animals and that’s why we hunt them” is an oxymoron written by a moron as well as those who claim to actually “hunt” trapped animals. Hunting is killing an animal and using it for it’s meat and fur, NOT for stuffing or hanging their heads on a wall to compensate for whatever their-shortcomings.
    Try going back to buying a fancy sports car instead and we’ll do our best to act impressed!!!

  14. The chief executive of the ranch stated, “We love the animals, and that’s why we hunt them.”…this has got to go down as one of the dumbest statements ever made by a human being! Clearly shows the lack of any brain cell in the empty head of the CE of this ranch!

  15. what the fuck is wrong with scummy yanks and their bullshit of killing anything that moves? USA – shithole country.

  16. I am so ashamed to be part of the human race, the cruelty and destruction is overwhelming.

  17. Arm The Animals. Slaughter The Barbaric Humans That Pay To Slaughter Defenseless Beautiful Animals. Justice For The Voiceless

  18. Texass of course! The hell hole of the country. Been living here since 1982 and it has done NOTHING but get worse year after year. Just waiting for the last grandchild to graduate from high school then hubby and I are moving to Colorado.

  19. Gene Sengstake says:

    It’s too bad you can’t stop/change the mindset of the “sickos” that consider themselves “big men” (what a joke!!!) in their killing of these “ranch” animals. Evidently the “law” protects all the bastards involved in this despicable practice – so there’s not much to be done as long as these bums evidently have their politician’s ears – – –
