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]

  1. Fuck you cruel assholes!!! Hope you burn in hell.

  2. Carolynn J Ashelman says:

    Please stop killing giraffes!!!!! I’m fearful they’ll be next on extinction list.

  3. Stop killing giraffes 🦒!!! Fucking pieces of shit on my shoe.

  4. Elizabeth Rutledge says:

    Why are you doing this? These giraffes are not hurting you in anyway! I am LITERALLY BEGGING YOU TO STOP TORTURING and KILLING THESE INNOCENT GIRAFFES !!! YOU can do what I cannot; YOU CAN SAVE THESE GENTLE ANIMALS and be a HERO. PLEASE, do all you can!!!

  5. “Trophy Hunter” is just another name for “Murdering Coward Overcompensating for a Tiny Penis.” You want to shoot something? Use a camera. We’ll know you’re good, then, if the picture is in focus.

  6. THESE BEAUTIFUL, MAJESTIC WILD ANIMALS NEED TO BE PROTECTED AND SAFEGUARD. THEY ARE MAGNIFICENT ANIMALS THAT ARE ONE OF AFRICA’S MOST ICONIC ANIMALS. THERE SHOULD BE NO REASON TO KILL ONE OF THESE ANIMALS – NO REASON AT ALL. THE TROPHY HUNTING IF THESE AND ALL OTHER SPECIES OF WILDLIFE NEEDS TO BE TOTALLY BANNED AND OUTLAWED IMMEDIATELY.

  7. Rose Coffey says:

    There are no adequate words to describe the loathing I have for these cowardly “trophy hunters”. I wish the world would make it where anyone hunting these endangered species is at their own risk because there is no guarantee for the “trophy hunter’s” safety – if someone beats them up or whatever, oh well.

  8. I can’t think of anything more cowardly than murdering innocent animals for a trophy. The countries that allow this use the excuse that it’s for conservation and that is just a load of BS! It’s greed!

  9. How can you sell out the animals of your country to these soulless savages? Money? Long term you will sustain continual income from tourists coming to see them alive. Really, why else do people travel to South Africa? Scumbags looking for quick cash; it never ends well.

  10. Michelle Stewart says:

    Trophy hunting of giraffes and all other animals must be made illegal. Anyone caught trophy hunting and poaching must be executed immediately. It all must stop

  11. Paula Morgan says:

    I am so sad. I was upset about the Zimbabwe announcement over their decision to allow elephants to be hunted by trophy hunters for …MONEY! The government decided they wanted the money more than the lives of wild elephants. And here we have yet another animal sacrificed for money. The giraffe. I have lived many years yet this seems, to me, as if the world has lost its mind along with the magnificent animals that make up the world. I now see a world of robots and rockets to outer space but no beauty of birds and their sweet songs or wildlife, of land still sacred and untouched whispering the call of nature to the spirit found in the deepest longings of humanity. Indeed, how sad.

  12. The ‘bait and murder’ thrill killers need to be rounded up and forced to hunt each other. LEAVE THE TOTALLY INNOCENT UNARMED ANIMALS ALONE….DESPICABLE REPREHENSIBLE SCUM PUNKS… in my opinion

  13. Shirley Lemieux says:

    Barbara Creecy, It is your duty and responsibility
    as the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment of South Africa, to protect and prevent the slaughter of Giraffes. Killing these beautiful animals for sport or trophy hunting must end. People around the World now know that Giraffes are being slaughtered in your Country and you are the one in a position to allow it or to protect these animals from being killed.

  14. EVA CANTU says:

    WHEN THESE AND OTHER WILDLIFE ARE GONE THEN YOUR COUNTRY’S ECONOMY GOES AWAY AS WELL. STOP THE KILLINGS!!!

  15. Taking a life just for something to hang on your wall is despicable! All animals are much more beautiful alive – they have personality and purpose. They are not souvenirs from the gift shop. A head hanging from a wall or a body “stuffed” for you to display is just a tragedy and a confirmation of the hunters ignorance and uncaring. Countries need to ban imports of trophy hunters’ kills. If a hunter can’t keep his trophy, then maybe he/she will stop hunting. Something needs to be done.

  16. Clave Williams says:

    Thank you Covid19!

  17. Agree all comments Stop this cruelty bunch of fucken cruel cunts.
    How can the fuckwit laws in the countries let this happen

  18. Charleen Murphy says:

    I agree with all comments! Disgusting pieces of slime!!! You’re nothing & criminal & cowardly & need to be executed when found trying to harm any animals for trophies!! So sick!! ☹️😡😡 Horrendous!!

  19. These so called `human beings` are just cowardly, evil pieces of nothing. They are worthless on this planet as they have the intelligence level of ZERO. If they had a brain, they would understand we can learn so much from animals and they cant fight back. Its NOT skillful, clever or a sport to kill animals. KARMA WILL FOLLOW THEM WHEREVER THEY GO, WHETHER THEY BELIEVE IN IT OR NOT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL. They have made their own Karma and it is attached to them and it will pay them back exactly ALL the wicked suffering they have given out…THAT IS A DEFINITE….you STUPID, STUPID MORONS. SO glad I am not you. Remember, whether you believe in Karma or not, it is yours to experience and YOU WILL. YOU ARE ALL SHAMEFUL COWARDS.

  20. RENA VAN STEELE says:

    YES SOULESS SAVAGES. ABSOLUTE COWARDS. DISPICABLE PIECES OF GARBAGE MALE/THINGS THAT NEED TO KILL TO FEEL LIKE A MAN!!! THIS IS CALLED…… THE SMALL PENIS SYNDROME ……AND EVEN SMALLER BRAINS IN THE MALE AND SURPRISINGLY FEMALE POPULATION. AFRICA,…U WILL SELL OUT ANY ANIMAL (OR ANYTHING REALLY,…INCLUDING THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN) FOR PROFIT/GREED/BLOODLUST AND WHEN THESE ANIMALS ARE GONE,…..U WILL BE GONE. FUCKING IDIOTS JUST CAN’T ADD ONE AND ONE EQUALS TWO. U WILL PAY DEARLY FOR THIS!!!! AS LONG AS IT PUTS MONEY TO THE WEALTHIEST, THE MOST CORRUPT,..THE MOST SAVAGE,…THE MOST ABUSE OF THEIR POWER,….IT’S ALL GOOD TO GO WITH THEM. POLITICIANS IN AFRICA,…GOVERNMENT IN AFRICA,..POLICE ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY USELESS BUT AGAIN,….THESE ARE THE REAL PROBLEM HERE. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ALLOW AND CONDONE THIS!!!!! SO LET THE TARGET (AND I MEAN TARGET PLEASE SOMEONE IN AFRICA……) BE THESE USELESS THINGS,…THE OTHER SAVAGES WHO FEEL THEY NEED TO SHOOT INNOCENT ANIMALS TO BOOST THEIR EGOS,….GO FUCK YOURSELVES AND DIE A HORRIBLE AND PAINFUL DEATH.
