The more people we can have rally together the quicker we can stop these beautiful animals from enduring another moment of this mistreatment.

This is the second time I have seen Michael Hackenberger on camera showing his inability to work with animals in a humane and professional way. Some of you may remember an earlier video of Michael on live TV showing he's not capable of controlling his temper. I believe he blamed bad nerves as a result of the pressure of being on live TV. See video here: . Although I thought this incident was uncomfortable, I admit I didn't lose much sleep over it. However, I can not relate to the latest video of Michael abusing Uno and I will not stand by and watch him receive a pardon from this cruelty without doing something. Michael was unaware this time that he was being recorded on video and escalated his cursing to unprovoked physical violence. He also behaved this way in front of someone who I am assuming was a stranger. I get chills thinking about what other mistreatments these animals have seen behind closed doors and without witness as a result if this mans "training" methods. 

I hope you will all join me in signing and sharing this petition and speaking up for these victims that have no voice to speak for themselves.   

Love and Peace
