Justice for 500 Puppies Reportedly Overheated and Killed in Hot, Cramped Airplane

Target: Judy Sgro, Chair of Canadian House of Commons Standing Committees on International Trade and Transport

Goal: Tighten restrictions on live animal export that seemingly brought suffering and death to innocent puppies.

In what witnesses described as a “horror show,” over three dozen French bulldog puppies reportedly lost their lives aboard an international flight from Ukraine to Canada. Many more of the estimated 500 puppies on the flight apparently endured vomiting, dehydration, and other signs of severe illness. These young innocents appear to be the latest victims of a merciless live export industry that routinely flouts rules and basic humane standards in service of voracious greed.

Canadian officials are currently in the process of investigating the events leading up to this horrifying discovery. The airline responsible for the flight, Ukrainian International Airlines, claims ignorance of the events. Yet this airline seemingly allowed the packing of hundreds of small, defenseless animals onto an airplane: a recipe for tragedy.  The apparent negligence is worsened by the airline’s membership in the International Air Transport Association, which is supposed to work for the safety and limited transport of vulnerable live animals.

These puppies seemingly died because of the high price tag they bring to cruel profiteers, including organized crime elements. Sign the petition below to demand Canada stop enabling this profit-driven practice that comes at the expense of precious animal lives.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chair Sgro,

“It was a nightmare. Canada and the federal government need to change the laws on the importation of these puppies.” These words come from the harrowing experience of a dog handler who saw the death of dozens of puppies and the painful illness of potentially hundreds more aboard a Ukrainian plane that touched down in Canada.

The French bulldog puppies met a tragic fate because of greed and an apparent lack of oversight and care that enables this poisonous ambition to thrive. Sought-after French bulldogs can sell for thousands of dollars in a Canadian market that clamors for them. A relentless drive for profit should not mean that responsible leaders look the other way as live transport vessels should cram hundreds of animals into cramped spaces to meet unending demand. The plane in question reportedly held 500 puppies…many seemingly beset by weakness and vomiting, and at least three dozen dead on arrival.

Please ensure such a tragedy never happens again. Heed the pleas of animal welfare advocates and change the laws to better safeguard innocent living beings.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Die Fluggesellschaft sollte sehr hart bestraft werden diese Leute sind alle nur auf Profit aus.Es ist schrecklich was diese armen Welpen erleiden mussten, jeder dieser Bastarde muss die härteste Strafe bezahlen

  5. Everyone involved in this from low to high ranking should be stuck in an airplane the same way those pups were for the time they were stuck in there and see how they feel … hopefully they get REALLY REALLY SICK !!!!!! then arrest and fine them all and don’t let them work in the airline business ever again.

    Aren’t there enough puppies in animal shelters (waiting for homes) in Canada, that “designer dogs” have to be bred and imported from the Ukraine to supply Canadians Adopt, don’t shop.

    I continue to sign the same types of petitions day after day, year after year and for the most part, nothing happens. The few exceptions like Ponce’s Law and others that have been lucky enough to get the attention of someone in power that has done something about it. It is so disturbing to see how humane oriented petitions are ignored by people with the power to make an immediate change. Animal suffering is so disturbing,and so it is that there still a majority of people out there that fail to see that animals are God created creatures just like us, with the exception of man being the most destructive and lethal of them all. That’s why I,m not a bid disturbed when an underground pro-animal movement takes care of business. The law just don’t care to stand up for animals, and when it does it is weak. I guess you can’t get to heaven if you don’t raise a little hell. One way or another, please don’t let animal cruelty go unpunished.

  15. Justin Recht says:

    People that can only love a certain breed are not true animal lovers – they love their egos more. So many neglected unwanted dogs wait in shelters for a loving owner.
    Shame on you!

    Canada also must improve their animal rights laws – these laws are always on the end of the list.
    Identify animal loving politicians and try to engage them in your cause. Even if it is slow, persistence is important & to keep the end goal firmly in sight.
