Demand Harsher Penalties for Killing Endangered Species

Target: Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives

Goal: Create harsher penalties for killing or harming endangered species.

If an animal goes extinct, there is no getting it back. That is why it is so important that endangered species receive special protection. Under current laws, the maximum sentence for killing, harming, trapping, or collecting an endangered species is only up to one year in prison. This is an absurdly short amount of time for doing something that contributes to ending an entire species.

There are well over 100 endangered species in North America alone. Human interference is the biggest reason most of these species have become endangered to begin with. Without a change, humans will be the reason some of these species go extinct.

In order to ensure that no one harms endangered animals, these punishments need to be far harsher. Penalties for killing an endangered species need to be closer to ten years or more, not just one. Our government needs to spread the message that bringing harm to these endangered species will not be tolerated.

Our current Endangered Species Act does not go far enough. Demand that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi does something about it.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

The maximum sentence in the United States for killing an endangered species is only one year in prison. This is nowhere near enough for such a horrible crime. Once an animal goes extinct, there is no getting it back. We need to do something to stop it from happening.

You have a strong record of supporting conservation efforts. We need your voice in Congress to protect these animals from possible extinction. Make protecting endangered animals a priority, and ensure that those who would harm them are punished far more severely.

Sincerely,

[ Your Name Here ]

  1. The Death Penalty or life in prison and no parole!

  2. All these vile and evil heartless and callous Trophy Hunters and all the other vile and evil Hunters who enjoy murdering the precious and helpless endangered and the precious wildlife must all be put to death. Kill the evil Hunting bastards. Just kill the pos.

    Harsher penalities will not stop these evil lowlife Hunting monsters from hell. The only way of stopping these animal murdering monsters is the Death Penalty and must be introduced. into the Animal Protection Laws. Eradication from our planet is a must. Get rid of this lowlife filth from our planet.

  3. Trophy hunters are the most worthless pieces of filth on this earth. All they do is murder innocent animals in the name of sport. Hunt each other you vile POS freaks.
