Petition to The sentencing council for England and Wales
make sentencing for animal abuse much stronger.
The maximum penalty for animal abuse (including torture, murder) is 6 months. I'm sure if anyone who has read an article on animal abuse in the past has been disgusted to the lengths at which people will disregard the rights of animals who cannot say no. They cannot ring an abuse hotline, they cannot just up and walk out. All animals know, in relation to humans is guidance and love. The trust an animal will have towards its "owner" is unconditional. Please don't let people who have the mallice to cause prolonged pain and discomfort to an animal get away with murder literally. As you know animals can't speak up for themselves, but you can.
Petition to Peta India
Ban on use of horses/donkeys/mules as rides to pilgrimages in India.
"The horse was forced to stand on his legs moments after it fell down. Its legs were shaking as it did. It was being forced by its owner to carry a man up the hill. The owner took no notice of a fractured ankle of the horse. When asked by me about the health clearance certificate of the animal the owner fled with the saddle leaving his horse again crashing to the ground in pain. People kept walking by........", I cried as I read somewhere. The man who shared this was on his way to Vaishno Devi Temple in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. But such incidents happen everywhere in India during the holy Yatras. This petition is a tribute to all the animals who have died or are dying carrying people up and down the holy mountains of India. It puts humanity to shame when pilgrims pass by injured, and in worse cases, dying horses/mules, that are used as mere mediums for carrying them up and down the hills, unnoticed. Most of these animals are employed illegally by their owners. There is a policy in India called 'Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act' which is being violated openly everywhere, all the time. The protectors of the law often become aides in the abusive use of animals in India. There is no check on the health of the animal before taking it on a 10-20 km ride uphill/downhill with loads ranging from 40 to 120 kg on their backs. The owners overexploit the animals which can often be seen limping with injuries to their ankles and knees. Wounds due to friction from the belts around the buttocks of these animals can't go unnoticed since they are often bleeding red. Ask yourself, is it OK to arrive at a temple having given such pain to an animal? It's your wish to go to meet your high dwelling deity, why should an animal be troubled immensely for that? Ask yourself, is it not a sin to ride to a holy place on the back of a sick and injured animal? Stop the cruel treatment of animals and ask for other means of transportation. When you say no to atrocious use of animals new alternatives will be created. Next time when you are going on a pilgrimage ask yourself, would you risk the life of an innocent animal to visit your holy place? If your conscience tells you it's wrong (I am sure it does) rise up for these innocent and harmless beings who can't speak up for themselves. Let's come together as a loud voice in support of providing a better life to these fellow earthlings who have been tortured for our comfort for centuries. Through this petition, we ask the Government of India to look into this matter seriously and put a complete ban on the use of animals as means of carrying people to holy places. This is the only possible way for the redemption of these creatures.

Απαγορεύστε το κυνήγι στην Κύπρο – Ban hunting in Cyprus
English text below Βοηθήστε να σταματήσει ο βασανισμός εκατοντάδων ζώων μέσω του κυνηγιού υπογράφοντας το ψήφισμα και καλώντας την κυπριακή κυβέρνηση να απαγορεύσει κάθε μορφή κυνηγιού. Please sign this petition to urge the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus to put an end to animal suffering caused by hunting. Ban hunting in Cyprus – stop animal crueltyHundreds of animals suffer and die in horrific ways in Cyprus every year due to hunting. Although it was part of humans’ survival 100,000 years ago, hunting is now nothing more than a violent and cowardly form of recreation that kills hundreds of animals in Cyprus every year, many of which suffer a slow and horrific death. Pain and Suffering Pray – the hunters main victimsMany animals endure prolonged, painful deaths when they are injured or killed by hunters. Animals just like humans have a nervous system which allows them to feel pain when shot or dragged by a hook that has been punctured right through some part of their body. Hunters cause injuries, pain and suffering to animals who are not adapted to defend themselves from bullets, traps and other cruel killing devices. They destroy animal families and habitats, and leave terrified and dependent baby animals behind to starve to death. For the animals that manage to survive hunting, the stress that they suffer—caused by fear and the inescapable loud noises and other commotion that hunters create—also severely compromises their normal eating habits, making it hard for them to store the fat and energy that they need in order to survive the winter. “Hunting” dogsDogs who are used for hunting also suffer. They’re often kept chained or penned and denied routine veterinary care such as vaccines and heartworm medication. Despite the claims of the hunters to love and care for their dogs, cases of killing each other's dogs for revenge are being reported lately as well. Many of them are shot, while some are lost during hunts and never found, and others who are turned loose at the end of hunting season to fend for themselves often die of starvation or get struck by vehicles. After every hunting activity, large numbers of abandoned and injured dogs are rescued, while others are found dead and brutally abused. Dog rescuers in Cyprus are struggling to accommodate the dogs that are victims of hunters. It isn’t about conservation or population control.Hunting has actually contributed to the extinction of animal species all over the world. The delicate balance of ecosystems ensures their survival—if they are left unaltered. The hunters victims are artificially reproduced and released to nature. Even when unusual natural occurrences cause overpopulation, natural processes work to stabilize the group. Hunting is Not SportHunting is often called a “sport,” to disguise a cruel, needless killing spree as a socially acceptable activity. However, the concept of sport involves competition between two consenting parties, adherence to rules and fairness ensured by an intervening referee, and achieving highest scores but not death as the goal of the sporting events. In hunting, the animal is forced to “participate” in a live-or-die situation that always leads to the death of the animal, whereas the hunter leaves, their life never remotely at stake. Hunters also frequently use food and electronic callers to lure unsuspecting animals in front of their weapons. The truth is, the animal, no matter how well-adapted to escaping natural predators she or he may be, has virtually no way to escape death once he or she is dealing with guns and traps. Violence against animals can lead to violence against humans.Like other forms of casual or “thrill” violence, hunting leads to a dangerous desensitization to the suffering of others. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit violent acts against animals rarely stop there, as many move on to target their fellow humans. Hunting is business – many of its supporters make money from itHunting is supported by many just because it is a source of income for them, at the expense of suffering animals. Hunting Associations’ board members and “opinion leaders”, as well as relevant state officials include owners of businesses targeting hunters such as shops selling clothing, guns and equipment, as well as individuals illegally trading hunting equipment.We, the undersigned, believe that hunting is a cruel act that has no place in civilised societies and should be illegal for the welfare of animals and the protection of the natural environment. We urge you to ban any form of hunting and animal suffering caused by it.

No More Plastic Straws in McDonalds
Plastic pollution is a growing problem in the world. By 2050 it is estimated that, by weight, there is going to be more plastic than fish in the world. And, in recent years it has also started to make its way into the food-chain. Whales are known to have eaten plastic bags, so too have Sea Turtles. Whilst, fish have succumbed to eating polyethyelene microplastics. However, in recent years a new problem has come to the attention of the public: Plastic Straws. They are known to have caused the drowning of turtles as they get stuck in their nostrils. This is needless and inhumane. Especially when an easy alternative is already readily available worldwide. Paper straws do exactly the same, except when they have been used they biodegrade. McDonalds, one of the largest Transnational Corporations in every country is one of the front-runners in their production of plastic straws, if they can stop, why can't many others follow their lead?! When we, as a nation, signed up to the UN Sustainable Development Goals we pledged to help life under water- this could be one of the biggest steps in helping us achieve this.

Judge Allows Hoarder 10 Unaltered Rabbits Or Guinea Pigs After 700 Seized From Neglect
(Click on the red links for details)January 16, 2018 "This Court finds that the animals seized from the Galkowskis were neglected within the meaning of Iowa Code §717B.3."Dead animals were found scattered throughout the residence of Marshall and Barbara Galkowski in various states of decomposition, some stored in a freezer." A veterinarian assessed the condition of the residence animals and determined that many of them were malnourished, dehydrated and were living in overcrowded conditions that were heavily contaminated with excessive amounts of fecal matter. The Humane Society also said there was evidence that some of the animals had "DIY surgery" by an untrained person, in progress. A number of dead animals were also found in the trash, on a work bench and in some of the cages. Small animal Veterinarian A. Leigh Annen, DVM testified that in one cage, a rabbit had died and another rabbit had started eating its corpse — a sign, she said, of serious nutrition deficiency, because only in desperate situations will a rabbit eat meat. Many of the animals had no food or water crammed in small cages unable to move. We the Petitioners respectfully request Benton County Attorney David Thompson Appeal this Court Order recommending the removal of the rabbits or guinea pigs from this home OR ask for an order to Spay and Neuter these 10 animals to Discourage Future Breeding, we also request a limit of animals owned as well as wellness checks on animals in this home for a reasonable length of time.The CVHS said the smell, empty water and food dishes, the sight of dead animals sharing cages with living ones, and even apparent incidents of “Do it Yourself” surgery performed on the animals was just part of the devastation its personnel found. Some of the animals passed after seized from severe malnutrition, animals at the shelter are being treated for upper respiratory infections, fur loss, corneal edema, eye mass, eye discharge, nasal discharge, skin lesions, mastitis, fungal infections, ear injuries and infections, dehydration, hypotrichosis, elbow crepitus, coughing, wheezing, sore hocks, mites, chipped teeth, urine scald, abrasions, vitamin C deficiency, pneumonia and birds appear to be overly exposed to disease. Photos of Confiscation. Over 700 animals were confiscated which turned into 800 after new births.The Vinton Police Department states these animals included “rabbits, rats, mice, hedgehogs, chinchillas, turtles, fish, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, and a ball python. Vinton Police Department Press Release. According to the Iowa District Court Order: JUDGE PATRICK GRADY ALLOWS THE FAMILY TO RETRIEVE 10 RABBITS OR GUINEA PIGS. THERE IS NO MENTION OF SPAY OR NEUTER (UNALTERED ANIMALS) It appears Judge Grady has put 10 of these animals back in danger by allowing them to return to the same neglectful breeding environment with no mention in the court order of improving the living conditions or wellness checks on the animals. The family was also permitted to keep a turtle, dog and 3 lizards. The length of pregnancy in the rabbit is 31 days and the doe can produce from 1 to 12 young each time she gives birth. She can be impregnated again within minutes of giving birth. The guinea pig gestation period is 59 to 73 days. The litter size ranges from 1 to 8 pups. A female can give birth to up to 5 litter's per year.We the Petitioners are appalled and shocked with the unethical decision of Judge Patrick Grady allowing irresponsible animal owners/hoarders to own any animals, let alone unaltered rabbits or guinea pigs which in turn, allows free will to breed hundreds of animals back into a life of neglect, misery and death. A situation of Animal Cruelty, burden to the Police, Animal Rescues and Taxpayers. We the Petitioners are further disappointed that consideration was given to animal owners/hoarders found guilty in court of animal neglect, for hundreds of suffering animals, several deaths, decomposing animals living with live animals causing extreme distress. Further concern, news reports an Illegal Ball Python living uncaged among prey animals that could literally be scared to death or eaten alive being suffocated and crushed. Judge Grady also sadly signed this order on 2/8/2018 stating: "Any animals remaining after February 18, 2018, shall be destroyed as provided in Iowa Code §717B.4 (4)". 10 days later - after helpless animals were safe from a life of misery, disease, starvation and unforgivable suffering. WE THE PETITIONERS RESPECTFULLY REQUEST A FULL INVESTIGATION INTO THE FOLLOWING CONCERNS Animal Neglect ChargesIOWA CODE ANN. § 717B.3 (2012). Animal neglect Charges1. and 3. The Humane Society stated evidence that some of the animals had surgery by an untrained person. This immoral practice would cause unbearable/unjustified pain, suffering, distress and infection to animals. Case: Woman charged after performing surgery on her dog - Iowa65.3(3) Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI). Animals imported into the state must be accompanied by a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection.
