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]

  1. Unless another 462 puppies died since they landed, news reports here in canada, several reports, stated that 38 puppies were dead on arrival.

    I blame everyone that allowed this to happen. Everyone knows one should never ship short nose (smushed faces) dogs or cats in the summer heat. How ignorant of the shipper, the airline and the receiver to allow this to happen. This breaks my heart and what a horrible way for these precious angels to die. None of these people deserve to ever have animals again and all should be fined an exorbitant amount and somebody deserves JAIL time.

  3. What a disgrace… what a sin… more ghastly atrocities humanity is involved in…

  4. American Girl says:

    What a bunch of souless idiots. These dogs especially should have been sent with special instructions due to their breathing problems with the breed. This is a disgrace and was totally & completely avoidable. Shame On You!

  7. Michelle Stewart says:

    Something must be done to stop all of this. Animals on airplanes should not be dying

    • D hughes says:

      Law enforcement is to incompetent and morally corrupt to defend such innocence. Their attitudes are as such. ‘ they’re just dumb animals, no big deal’.

  8. D hughes says:

    Absolute filthy human scum! A bullet will cure all ills…some humans should not be allowed to breath.

  9. Nadine brundage says:

    Ukrainian airlines is responsible for the deaths is these innocent puppies. Greedy assholes, stuffing all these pups into small crates and placed in hot cargo. Hope those assholes all rot In Hell. I’m sure the Canadians are also responsible.

  10. Maria Bertrand says:

    CANADA MUST DO MORE …. CANADA MUST DO BETTER…..ALL PUPPY MILLS MUST BE SHUT DOWN! PLEASE!!!!!!!

    PEOPLE BUYING PETS FROM PUPPY MILLS ARE AS GUILTY AS THOSE THAT BREED THEM ….AND YOU ALL HAVE NO HUMANITY!!!!!

  11. This is disgraceful animal abuse at its worst.If animals are to be transported on planes then flight conditions must have policies and procedures in-place that cater for safety and security.The bastards who neglected these poor puppies resulting inn their death must have the mandatory death penalty implemented.Prison is not adequate for them.

  12. debra goldstein lustig says:

    THIS IS AN OUTRAGE AND THIS ACT OF ANIMAL ABUSE AND CRUELTY SHOULD BE OUTLAWED ONCE AND FOR ALL.

  13. Agree all comments all people think of is fucken money not animals welfare. Laws need to change fucken people lock them in the fucken hear and let them die is this horrific way. CUNTS

  14. Anne Steph says:

    Where are the Authorities???? Quick enough to jump on anyone carrying drugs but not on this terrible trade of animal suffering.

  15. Harry S. Anchan says:

    Please 1. Prosecute 2. Punish and 3. Prevent this outrageous atrocity.

  16. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE MONEY. THE OWNERS SHOULD REQUEST (WHEN THEY HAVE THAT MANY ANIMALS) TO HAVE A PLANE TO TRANSPORT ONLY THE ANIMALS AND THE OWNER(S).

  17. This is such a horrible thing to happen to innocent little puppies all because they were not properly taken care of with enough oxygen!!! Shame on those who are responsible for this crime. These innocent puppies should have been better taken care of.

  18. Teresa Zamalloa says:

    IF we can’t solve our own problems in the USA, would you think that a foreign country will pay any attention to what we say?

  19. Caroline Dinnage says:

    Dogs should not be shipped like baggage! Stop buying designer dogs all you vain spoilt people.Canada murders seal pups and that doesn’t bother them. #adoptdontshop!

  20. Rachel Davies says:

    What the fuck are airlines doing flying 500 puppies???? Why didn’t someone ask questions? Laws need to be passed ensuring this NEVER happens again. The airline needs to be fined heavily, the breeders should be shot and anyone else involved in this horrific trade needs to be incarcerated. I can’t understand how this was allowed to happen but Judy Sgro must take action immediately to prevent it ever recurring. Greedy breeders and greedy airline.
