Rescue Animals From Abusive Trainer

Target: Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California

Goal: Demand USDA force abusive former animal trainer to relinquish animals in his care.

Abusive Hollywood animal trainer Sidney Yost is still allowed to keep his animals, despite being fined $30,000 and having his license revoked. For years, Yost had been striking his animals with rocks, depriving them of food, and forcing them to live in filthy conditions while exploiting them for money in popular films such as The Hunger Games and Get Out. But even though he is no longer allowed to train or exhibit his animals, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has yet to take them from him, meaning Yost will still be able to abuse them on his own time.

This is unacceptable and lacking in logic. Yost’s record of animal abuse goes back decades, and yet he is only being disciplined for it now, and he is still allowed to own the horses, lions, wolves, and monkeys he has been exploiting and abusing. In the everyday working world, laws have been changed to prohibit convicted and registered animal abusers from owning animals. Yost should not be an exception to these laws simply because he is a rich Hollywood trainer.

Revoking Yost’s license was the right thing to do, but it was only the first step. The law must also revoke his ownership rights and send these animals to either a refuge or back into the wild. Sign this petition to demand the law finish the job and save these animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Becerra,

The USDA has revoked animal trainer Sidney Yost’s license after years of abuse were uncovered, but they have yet to take those animals from his custody. For decades, Yost was known to beat his animals with sticks and rocks, starve them, deny them veterinary care, and force them to live in squalid conditions. Allowing him to retain the animals is is illogical and completely unacceptable; just because Yost is no longer allowed to train does not mean he is no longer abusive.

You must finish the job. You and the USDA must revoke Yost’s right to own anymore animals at all, regardless of his status or lack thereof as a trainer. Animal abusers in the everyday world are now forced to register as abusers and are forbidden from owning pets if they are found guilty, and the same rules and law should apply to Hollywood. Rescue these innocent animals and let them live normal, happy lives.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This vicious psychotic wretch should not be anywhere near an animal. This is a malicious deviant with a dark decayed heart, and malignant foul sewer for a mind. This walking piece of excrement is a disfigurement on the face of the earth, and does not belong in a civilised society with decent people. JUSTICE for those animals !

  5. How come this dick head isn’t in prison!

  6. As more and more people learn about the animal abuse that happens behind the scenes, the less people want to participate in it. Let’s end this!

  7. why is this creep still walking around and still have animals is the law being paid to look the other way because he works in hollywood give me a break he’s a cruel bastard that needs to have his animals taken away from him and never be allowed to have another one I’d like to have 5 minutes with the creep he’d never walk or talk again

  8. MAKE LAWS TO DEFEND THE ANIMALS FROM TURDS LIKE THIS NOW, JUSTICE.

    Most Serial Killers have also been animal abusers, so these brutal abusers need to be Locked Up. They are a Very Real Danger to Living Beings, human and non-human.
