Stop the Massacre of the Homeless Animals in Sochi for Winter Olympics 2014
Please sign this petition supporting our plea against this VIOLENT ACT. We highly encourage you to read the entire petition and contact the SPONSORS with the letter provided below. Thank you All.
As per the mayor of Sochi himself, Anatoly Pakhomov, during his latest speech on preparations for the Olympic games, he encouraged the city to take action against all the homeless animals by exterminating them. Not only does he think it is OK to involve the people in this MASSACRE, he applause their enthusiasm by rewarding them with 800 roobles for EACH DEAD STRAY. All this is in the name of the Olympics taking place in his city. It is mind blowing that someone would encourage people to KILL and reward them for it. We strongly believe that there are other methods, less primitive and less barbaric, to take care of the stray population, such as spay/neuter clinics and homeless shelters.
FOR ALL THOSE WHO LIVE IN SOCHI AREA, WE BEG YOU TO take measures into your own hands and save a few lives by providing shelter to the homeless animals in your area.
We encourage you all to email the decision makers yourselves by copying and pasting this petition (the copy of the petition is located all the way at the bottom of the page). Emails are provided below:
Mayor of Sochi: firstname.lastname@example.org
Organization of Olympic Winter Games: email@example.com

Dear Sponsor of Winter Olympics 2014,
It has come to our attention that you will be participating in sponsoring this event, however, there are a few things you should know:
As per the mayor of Sochi himself, Anatoly Pakhomov, during his latest speech on preparations for the Olympic games, he encouraged the city to take action against all the homeless animals by exterminating them. Not only does he think it is OK to involve the people in this MASSACRE, he applause their enthusiasm by rewarding them with 800 roobles for EACH DEAD STRAY. All this is in the name of the Olympics taking place in his city. It is mind blowing that someone with such authority would encourage people to KILL and reward them for it.
We strongly believe that there are other methods, less primitive and less barbaric, to take care of the stray population, such as spay/neuter clinics and homeless shelters. If the government of Sochi is willing to pay 800 roobles for every dead stray It would only make sense that they are fully capable of opening a shelter and a sterilization clinic.
Now, we all know that companies value their image and the image of their products as it translates into profits. Being involved in such a massacre surely would damage that image for ANY COMPANY, regardless of how big or small. The petition that has been started to Boycott this DESPICABLE CRUELTY is worldwide. We will not allow such UNTHINKABLE acts of violence to go unpunished.
We highly encourage you to rethink your position on sponsoring this event which would ultimately be viewed as providing full support for this MASSACRE to take place.
STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN...all the great changes took place because ONE PERSON had the guts to SPEAK UP... be that person...
Here is the copy of the letter that is emailed to the Mayor of Sochi, Alexander Zhukov President of the Russian Olympic Committee, Marat Bariev Secretary General of Russian Olympic Committee AS WELL AS to the Organization of Olympic Winter Games 2014, each time someone signs this petition:

- Organization of Olympic Winter Games 2014

It has come to our attention that during his recent speech regarding the preparations for the Winter Olympics 2014 Mr.Pakhomov had clearly stated that it would be in the city's best interest to simply exterminate the stray animal population. We also understand that there has been a prize money issued for every dead stray animal of 800 roobels.
We strongly disagree with this primitive and barbaric method of dealing with the stray animal population and would like to urge you to rethink your position in this matter.
The money that are offered for each killed animal could be going towards the sterilization clinic for the animals or even a homeless shelter for the dogs and cats roaming the streets. By encouraging the citizens to KILL the animals you are contributing to the creation of future MONSTERS and MURDERERS.
We are very well aware that there are other means to deal with the stray animal population but it is unclear to us why this unthinkable method was chosen considering the fact that there is still PLENTY OF TIME to come up with a MORE HUMANE solution.
KILLING IS NEVER the answer... whether it is killing an animal or a human being. Giving a reward for such evil act encourages people to adapt to the lifestyle of cruelty and crime and CRUELTY should never be rewarded.
We encourage you to reconsider your decision and come up with a more HUMANE plan to take care of the homeless animal population such as a sterilization clinic or a homeless shelter.
We have also encouraged each petitioner who signs this petition to contact the SPONSORS for this event, making them aware of this UNTHINKABLE senseless SLAUGHTER of innocent lives. No company wants to be associated with aiding a Massacre. Remember that GOOD always prevails.
