Boycott Animal Cruelty At Philadelphia “Big Lick” Walking Horse Show – Neshoba Co, MS
Philadelpia (Neshoba County) MS is a diverse balanced community located in East Central Mississippi. Its citizens are especially proud of their “Neshoba County Coliseum”, a modern indoor arena located just North of town Sadly, the Neshoba County Coliseum will host the “Heart Of Dixie” “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Show” on Saturday, March 13, 2021.This show will feature “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses (25 of 30 classes) wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES, and CHAINS will hit the sensitive skin above the horses hooves making them step high with their front legs. “The ‘Big Lick’ is a pain induced gait,” says Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, Horse Science Professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University), “It is a business based on the suffering and pain of Horses". U. S. Congressman Michael Guest (R-MS), who represents Philadelphia and Neshoba County, happens to agree with Dr. John Haffner because on July 25, 2019, Rep. Guest voted “YES” to pass the “U.S Senator Joseph D. Tydings Memorial PAST ACT” to abolish “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty forever. The bipartisan landslide vote (78%) was 331 to 96. Rep Guest congressional district includes Miss. State University at Starkville, MS where the Vet College is located. http://billygoboy.com/2019/08/10/the-united-states-house-of-representatives-casts-historic-vote-to-end-big-lick-animal-cruelty-to-tennessee-walking-horses/ This shocking video - "Here's What Soring Does To Horses" - exposes the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Racket as ANIMAL CRUELTY. The video has been viewed over 16 MILLION TIMES (16,500,000) times since being released on March 7, 2017. “Soring” is the illegal and cruel practice of using chemical and mechanical methods to create pain in a gaited show horses front feet to exaggerate their animated step." https://www.facebook.com/NowThisNews/videos/1606891339327953/ Unfortunately, Philadelphia (Neshoba County) MS will be associated with the stigma of “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty as long as it hosts this “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Show. The “Big Lick” horse show is being brought to the Neshoba Coliseum at Philadelphia by a person who lives in South Mississippi. She was holding the show at “The Magnolia Center” at Laurel (Jones County) - about 30 minutes from her home. Then, in 2018, local newspaper ads were run, and a Change.Org Petition by the Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to cancel it gained over 10,000+ signatures from all over America and around the world. Consequently, the show was not held in Laurel in 2019, and it was brought to Philadelphia in 2020 MISSISSIPPI SAYS “NO” TO BIG LICK ANIMAL CRUELTY In March 2015, the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) in Jackson, MS, severed all ties with the Mississippi Charity“Big Lick” Horse Show held at the State Coliseum. UMMC refused to accept a $50,000.00 annual donation to its Children’s Hospital from the Mississippi Charity Horse Show due to its featuring “Big Lick” TWH Animal Cruelty. https://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2015/03/05/ummc-accept-charity-horse-show-donations/24466347/ The Jackson “Big Lick” Horse Show no longer exists. Philadelphia (Neshoba County) MS is too fine a place, and simply does not need “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty on display at its beautiful “Neshoba County Coliseum”. Please SIGN and SHARE this Petition. Your Signatures and Comments will be delivered to Philadelphia (Neshoba County) MS officials.

Stop the Roundup of the Onaqui Wild Horse Herd in Utah!
The Onaqui Herd is a group of wild horses found in western Utah. They are beloved by citizens around the world, horse lovers, photographers, and those with a deep respect for our rich history here in the western United States. But they are under threat!!! The Bureau of Land Management currently has plans to round up over 465 horses(91% of the herd!) from this revered and precious herd in early 2019(exact date not announced). This will rob these iconic symbols of the American West of their freedom and tear apart the wild horse families that people all over the world have come to know and love. This roundup is generating massive public opposition but the BLM continues to avoid cancelling the roundup in favor of a more humane and sustainable long term wild horse management plan. The wild horse population used to be estimated at over 2 million individuals, now no more than 80,000 wild horses roam free. Approximately 2,600 of that number reside here in Utah! With limited public land, wild horse populations cannot run rampant. However, there are many alternatives to traumatic wild horse roundups(alternatives that will be discused below), but the BLM refuses to implement them. During BLM sanctioned wild horse roundups, wild horses are traumatically stampeded over long stretches by helicopters and other means. This herding technique is not only terrifying but horses are often injured in the process. They are herded into small corrals where many of the old and young are hurt by their panicked herd members. After they are confined they await their fate. While some of the younger wild horses(usually age 5 or younger) are run through the adoption curcuit, many are condemned to live in small confinement pens for the rest of their lives. Last year 4,600 horses were adopted out, but that pales in comparison to the 11,000 horses that are scheduled to be rounded up this year. Where do the excess horses go? Not back on the rangeland, and the answer is expensive. The wild horses rounded up and removed from public lands are placed in holding facilities. The cost of rounding up, removing, and holding wild horses costs an estimated $50 MILLION DOLLARS in tax payer money PER YEAR. For one horse that remains in one of these holding facilities for the entirety of its life can cost upwards of $50,000 per animal. There are over 45,000 wild horses currently being held in government run facilities. The BLM has contracts with ranchers who hold and care for the horses and pay for them so much per day to keep the horses. Additionally, many wild horses end up in less than favorable conditions, which potentially means they get shipped to slaughter. Over 100,000 horses here in the United States are shipped to slaughter in either Canada or Mexico every year. This number includes domesticated horses as well as wild horses. Slaughter houses in the US were closed in 2007, but those who profit from the horse meat industry have found a loophole and now just ship the horses long distances to meet their terrible end. Why the incentive to get rid of wild horses? The answers are murky. One answer commonly regurgitated is that wild horses are ruining public land. However, there is no evidence that wild horses are the perpetrators. Quite the opposite however. According to the AWHC, “Wild horses are not present on more than 80% of rangelands, which makes the claim that that they are overrunning the range preposterous. Moreover, according to the BLM, less than one-quarter of available forage within Herd Management Areas (HMAs) is allocated to wild horses. More than 75% is allocated to livestock. (1.1 million AUMs for livestock; 320,000 AUMs for wild horses and burros.). The vast majority of rangeland and forage is reserved for livestock not wild horses.” Here in Utah, livestock grazes on more than 22 million acres of public land, while wild horses are only allowed to graze on 2.1 million acres of land—land which also is grazed by cattle and sheep. Wild horses in Utah therefore occupy less than 10% of public land. It seems to come down to money. Cattlemen see wild horses as competition for cheap taxpayer subsidized livestock grazing on public lands. Ranchers pay $1.41 per animal per month to graze on public lands versus paying over $20 per animal per month to graze on private lands in the west. HOWEVER our wild horses still need to be able to roam free! We cannot decimate healthy wild horse populations at the hand of the cattle and sheep industries. There is only one wild horse per 29,000 football fields allowed on public land. The BLM only allows 16,300-27,00 wild horses to roam on public lands today. The BLM allows the equivalent of 727,000 cow-calf pairs to roam public land today. Seems a more than a little unfair and unbalanced. By setting a national limit of wild horses at just 16,300 – 27,000, the BLM wants to decrease the number of wild horses drastically. In 1971 congress determined that wild horses were rapidly disappearing and acted unanimously to save them, passing a bill that protected all 25,000 remaining wild horses. Now that we’ve seen improvements in our wild horse population the Bureau of Land Management wants to reduce the number of horses BACK DOWN to when it wasn’t previously determined to be too low? Additionally there are less cattle on public lands now than there was in 1971, with less than 2% of America’s beef coming from the US. Doesn’t make sense, BLM. So what are the REAL solutions? The AWHC suggests: ”1. Using the proven PZP fertility control vaccineto reduce population growth rates.(a vaccine administered every 2 years, 96% effective, costs $36 per vaccine aka extremely cost effective compared to whatnot the BLM is currently spending) 2, Creating public-private partnerships to implement humane management programs. 3. Adjusting the artificially low and unscientific AMLs to accommodate current population levels and allow for the preservation of wild horses and burros in genetically viable herds. 4. Developing mechanisms to compensate ranchers for reduced use or non-use of public grazing allotments in HMAs. Compensating ranchers will be far cheaper than continuing to roundup, remove and stockpile wild horses in holding facilities. 5. Reducing the population of horses in holding by transferring them to zeroed out Herd Areas or other public lands areas where they can earn their own keep. These horses are non-reproducing, so will phase out over time and thus will not create additional management challenges.” With the $50 million dollars that the BLM is currently spending annually on rounding up and holding our wildness horses in confinement, they couldn’t be implementing the above ideas to properly and humanely control our wild horse populations, creating win-win situations for everyone’s involved. But they won’t listen. Last summer, 2018, more than 7,000 individuals signed a petition and wrote letters saying they opposed the roundup of the Onaqui Herd. But the BLM continues to plan to roundup this precious herd, despite public outcry. We, the people, need to protect our wild horses! Wild horses that are being captured, traumatized, and in many cases injured or killed. Wild horses are a symbol. A symbol of freedom, a symbol of strength, a symbol of our heritage. Whether you consider yourself a horse lover or not, care about the plight of the American mustang. Because the involves everyone. There are so many alternatives to continuing rounding up our wild horses and decimating herd populations. Tell our government that we care about our wild horses! It is time that the government and the BLM listens to the voices of the American people. Sign this petition if you want to stop the looming roundup of the local Utah Onaqui herd happening soon in 2019 and have a better discussion about long term solutions! If we don’t speak up for them, who will? Make your voice heard!
Petition to Chinese Government
Get Bear Bile Farming Banned in China
Bear bile farming is when moon bears, otherwise known as Asiatic black bears, have their bile, a liquid substance made in the liver and stored in the gallbladder, extracted. Seems harmless, right? Wrong. The bears are get in tiny, coffin-sized cages and are fed gruel because their teeth have been cut down to the gum and they can't chew meat. Each day, their bile is extracted from a hole cut in their abdomen, which more often then not gets seriously infected. The extraction process is unbelievably painful for the bears. This exists in China and Vietnam. Though many conservation efforts have been made in Vietnam, it is still legal in China. Please sign this petition to get it banned.
Petition to Andrew Cuomo, Germantown NY, Columbia County NY
STOP the Cruel Squirrel killing contest in Germantown, NY! STOP The Squirrel Scramble!
The Town of Germantown, New York has organized a squirrel killing contest (Squirrel Scramble) in the name of “family fun”! This barbaric, cruel, senseless and environmentally terrorizing money grab is being advertised to children as well with the opportunity to win a cash prize for the heaviest set of squirrels killed. Encouraging the participants to out do one another in the slaughtering of the maximum number of the largest squirrels allowed. Tell the Town of Germantown, New York and Columbia County to leave New York's wildlife alone! New York residents and Americans from all over the country are outraged and have been asking Germantown, NY to cancel this cruel event. New York Residents and the campaign to protect New York’s Wildlife are of the opinion that encouraging fellow Americans who are financially struggling in the middle of a pandemic and an economic depression to resort to terrorizing wildlife for cash relief is not only bad governance, but degrades the social fabric of society by involving children in animal cruelty and environmental destruction. There are so many fun activities that families can engage in; hiking, climbing, ice skating, kayaking, picnicking, biking, snowboarding, canoeing, swimming, playing basketball, volleyball or soccer that does not terrorize wildlife. You don’t have to destroy wildlife and senselessly murder innocent sentient beings to “have fun”! Please join us by emailing, tweeting, calling officials and asking them to step in and speak up for New York’s wildlife, eco system and thousands of residents, constituents, and activists that are asking for this event to be canceled. This cruel event reflects poorly on the state of New York and Columbia county’s image and will harm its tourism industry as thousands have pledged not to plan future trips in the town due to Germantown’s involvement in animal cruelty and the destruction of wildlife and our eco system. Thousands of environmental and wildlife advocates are scheduled to hold a protest on Feb. 26th to cancel the event. Please join us to save New York’s wildlife. The location of the protest will be released by the campaign shorty. In the mean time, please email, call and tweet your officials and Germantown and Columbia country’s board members and respectfully ask them to protect our wildlife and cancel this barbaric and destructive contest.

Boycott Under Armour for promoting Trophy Hunting
Picture: Under Armour sponsored "Athlete" and Trophy Killer Lee Lakosky. Trophy Hunting is Animal Cruelty. Under Armour sponsors numerous Trophy-hunters like Kendall Jones, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Cameron Hanes, and many others, to kill wild animals for sport on different continents in order to promote the sale of Under Armour Hunting Gear. Under Armour trophy hunters flaunt their numerous kills ostentatiously on "UNDER ARMOUR HUNT" social media pages as well as their personal websites. To Patrik Frisk, CEO and Kevin Plank, Founder of Under Armour: "Sirs, the inspired spirit of innovation that built your company is contrary to the sport hunting programs you support and sponsor. Watching individuals butcher unsuspecting wild animals for the thrill of killing, flaunting pictures of themselves with their kills on social media is something that haunts any conscientious human being. Your aim to inspire through sport is noble and innovative. Including killing sentinent beings into that aim is base, grotesque and inhumane. Please reconsider and cancel your involvement in hunting. It literally destroys the reputation of your entire company."

Demand Stricter US Breeding Laws
Our shelters are full of backyard bred dogs and cats, puppy/kitten mills are impossible to stop, animals are being actively abused and kept in cages for breeding and animal activists are forced to watch, unable to help, because unfortunately, our breeding laws are basically nonexistent. If an animal is purposefully bred without a license, why is it not a federal crime? Rescues should be able to seize unfixed pets that are being irresponsibly kept together. Pets with genetic diseases such as albinism, double Merle, hip dysplasia, and more shouldn’t be bred and sold to uneducated buyers for thousands of dollars. Stricter laws need to be in place to stop backyard breeding.

Tell Congress to Stop "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty Practice of Soring Horses #PassthePASTAct
The U.S. Senator Joseph D. Tydings Memorial PAST Act, H.R. 693/S.1007, was introduced in the U.S. House by Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY), and in the U.S. Senate by Sens. Mike Crapo (R-ID), Mark Warner (D-VA), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Edward Markey (D-MA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Bob Casey (D-PA), Steve Daines (R-MT), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Ron Wyden (D-OR) to end the horrific practice of "soring" Tennessee Walking, Racking, & Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring is the intentional infliction of pain to horse’s hooves and legs to force the horses to perform an exaggerated, high-stepping gait known as the "Big Lick." Caustic chemicals are applied, and plastic wrap is used to cook the chemicals directly into the horse’s flesh for several days. Chains are attached to strike the wounds, and screws and nails are driven into the sensitive tissue of their hooves with the purpose of causing pain that will cause the horses to raise their legs and perform the exaggerated gait. These horses are subjected to constant severe pain. We need you to sign the petition asking U.S. House and Senate Leadership to bring the PAST Act to a vote and to take further action by asking your Members of Congress to cosponsor the bill by clicking here: https://secure.everyaction.com/y6sQMj1VC0yMROSfwQZPjQ2.
