Stop the Senseless Killing of Gentle Giraffes

Target: Barbara Creecy, Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment of South Africa

Goal: Protect giraffes from grisly slaughter.

In Africa, about three hundred giraffes are slaughtered every year, but the actual number might be much higher. Since the 1980s, the giraffe population decreased from over 155,000 animals to only 111,000. Today, giraffes are listed as a vulnerable species, with trophy hunting playing a major role in the decline.

Although giraffes are threatened by extinction, people continue to hunt and kill them for pleasure. Hunters claim to keep the environment in balance by killing countless animals, never acknowledging that humans should not interfere with nature. Furthermore, most hunters target the strongest animals of a species, with devastating effects on their gene pool.

Not only are these precious animals viciously killed for trophies, but many of them are also killed for the fashion industry to create products like boots, pillows, jackets, and book covers.

Trophy hunting is a vile sport, for which countless animals have to give their lives. Sign this petition to banish hunting giraffes.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Barbara Creecy,

As the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment of South Africa, you must protect vulnerable animal species in your country. Many people travel to Africa for only one reason: to hunt animals. Especially rare species are popular to fulfill a hunter’s need for glory.

Animals that are killed during the hunt puts the population of the species in danger. Unless more efforts are made to protect them, the number of giraffes will continue to decline even further towards extinction.

You must utilize the power that your position has granted you to preserve vulnerable species on our planet. Please implement protections for giraffes, and ban giraffe hunting altogether.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  6. Dolores Proubasta says:

    There once was a “Hunt the Hunter Hunt Club” in England — regrettably, not “active” in their reasonable pursuit, but delivering a message. I propose an international namesake of that club, and active participation. At least it would be a challenging sport, not murder by cowards.

  7. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    DISGRACEFUL, SOUTH AFRICA!!! STOP SLAUGHTERING GIRAFFES and STOP CANNED HUNTS OF LIONS AND LION BREEDING for these operations NOW.

  8. I don’t know why trophy murderers are referred to as trophy hunters. A hunter hunts for meat. A murderer kills so he can show everyone his trophies. These cowards shouldn’t be allowed to continue killing.

  9. String these pestilent, filthy ass, motherfuckers up and disembowel from sternum to pubic bone! Let the entrails spill from their cankerous carcasses and the scavengers will do the rest!💀

  15. Paula Long says:

    So sick of the cruel and senseless killing of all beautiful wildlife. I guess this what chickenshits do to think this makes them a man. A real man does do shit like this.

  16. Val Gaffney says:

    Any person hunting and killing ANY animal should be shot on sight and their heads placed on display to ward off others! Unless someone in authority stands up to them this senseless killing will continue.

  17. STOP KILLING GIRAFFES & ALL OTHER WILD ANIMALS IMMEDIATELY!!!! If animals were given guns to HUNT & KILL STUPID PEOPLE might be a better world!!!

    Why do we need to ask you to stop these murdering mad hunters? You would think this would be something you WOULD DO without being asked. As the humane thing to do.
