End the Annual Cruel Barnesville Greased Pig Chase
Every September, the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce in Georgia hosts a greased pig chase. For hours, one by one, terrified piglets are brought into an arena and thrust towards mobs of screaming children who run after them grabbing and clawing to try to be the first one to "claim" the pig. After being roughly handled, the pigs are chased by children, teens, and young adults who pile on them with their full body weight. Pigs suffer emotionally and physically as they are body-slammed to the ground and their limbs, ears, and tails, are yanked, bent backward, and twisted by the frenzied crowd. GARP documented the event workers slamming the pigs down, slapping them, and spitting on them in front of the crowd. Pigs are sensitive, intelligent, affectionate animals who experience physical and emotional harm at this event. Pigs instinctively fear being chased by predators and experience sheer terror while being pursued by a manic group of screaming people trying to catch them. In addition to being traumatic and extremely frightening for the pigs, animal chasing events desensitize children and teach them that terrorizing and hurting animals is acceptable behavior. The Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce claims the city is "forwardly innovative". Please sign the petition to let them know that violent events promoting animal cruelty are not innovative and they do not make Barnesville a desirable place to visit or do business.

Petition to Mark Zuckerberg
FACEBOOK, please BLOCK videos of animal cruelty!!!!
As an animal lover and animal rescuer for over 16 years, it is extremely hard to constantly see videos of animal abuse and extreme animal cruelty being shared on Facebook feeds with the faces and laughs of the disturbed perpetrators. We are animal lovers, advocates and rescuers... NOT THE POLICE and usually with no power to exert change or due punishment. These images are highly unsettling and stay on our minds, disrupting our day and our belief that there is hope for humanity. The people who commit these atrocious acts of cruelty find it easy and entertaining to have a worldwide platform with over 2 billion users that will ALLOW this to happen and do nothing. When that ability to share and feed their sick minds is cut off, it might help discourage these repulsive acts. Please, join me in asking FACEBOOK to block these videos from their feeds and hopefully even work on developing an algorithm that will, at the same time, send this content to the authorities in the country they are being streamed or filmed from so that proper action may be taken by the people in charge of this type of criminal acts. Mark Zuckerberg in 2011 - "The question isn't, 'What do we want to know about people?', It's, 'What do people want to tell about themselves?'" Please Mark, with that being said, you have the ability to MAKE THIS A BETTER WORLD for all living beings! Use all the data collection to do some GOOD too. Just because you can!!! And because "connecting people around the world" shouldn't be about disseminating horror and/or cruelty.

Ban Cruel Horse-drawn Carriage Rides in Birmingham
Birmingham should be a city of compassion instead of abuse which can be achieved by banning horse-drawn carriage rides. Horse-drawn carriages are cruel to horses by forcing them to pull oversized loads, constantly breathe in noxious exhaust fumes and suffer from serious hoof ailments due to walking on hard pavement past the point of exhaustion - no matter how hot the weather is. Horse-drawn carriages are a disgraceful exploitation that does not represent the wholesome and progressive image of Birmingham.

One Male Idaho Grizzly Bear To Be Executed In Trophy Hunt
On Thursday, March 22, 2018, Idaho’s Fish and Game Commission voted for a hunt that would allow for the glory killing of one male grizzly bear. This is a totally senseless and unjustified action on behalf of an agency that prides itself on conservation and touts the grizzly bears' recovery as a success. When the Yellowstone grizzly bears lost their federal protections, the grizzly bears' future landed in the hands of three neighboring States, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. Montana voted against a grizzly bear hunting season. Wyoming is moving forward with plans to slaughter 24 grizzly bears this fall and Idaho has set its sights on one male grizzly bear. Grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone area are challenged with ever-growing threats such as habitat loss, human-caused fatalities, loss of vital food sources, and now trophy hunting. The fact is this hunt has nothing to do with necessity or science, but rather an agency catering to special interest groups and offering them an opportunity to "bag" their trophy grizzly. If Idaho moves forward with a hunting season, it will be the first hunt since 1975, when grizzlies were listed as a federally protected species under the Endangered Species Act. Please voice your opposition to this unscientific and unjustified trophy hunt!

Justice for the 4 month old puppy HANGED by the "mother of 5" in Barsa, Romania
It came to my attention in the media that this horrible human being,some say MOTHER OF 5, hanged a 4 month old puppy with a plastic bag. Because the plastic bag broke, she proceeded to use a wire to hang the puppy. The puppy fought for his life and cut his throat but survived and escaped.The puppy is rescued by a kind human. This woman violates the animal protection law of both Romania and EU. This petition is forwarded to the POLICE OF ARAD AND POLICE OF THE VILLAGE BARSA where the woman leaves to investigate the case and apply the law. I also demand a written report to be publicized with the measures taken. Where there is animal cruelty, there is child abuse too! POLICE OFFICE IN BARSA,ARAD, Romania Address: Com.

Boycott Under Armour For Promoting Trophy Hunting
Picture: Under Armour goon Lee Lakosky poses with the carcass of a Kodiak Bear he just killed. 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 Kevin Plank, Founder and CEO of Under Armour: "Sir, 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."

Petition to President of the United States, Ivanka Trump, Secretary of Agriculture, Mark Mulvaney, American Horse Council
Mr President, Please Publish Federal Rule Save”The Horses” From “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty
“We, The People” respectfully petition you to please instruct Secretary of Agriculture, Mr. “Sonny” Perdue, and OMB Director, Mr. Mark Mulvaney, to expeditiously review and publish the Federal Rule in the Federal Register to remove the “Pads and Chains” from Tennessee Walking Horses. This will eliminate 50 years of corruption and Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses! CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty) grassroots advocates are largely Southerners who voted for you, but more importantly, they “Speak FOR ‘The Horses Who Cannot Speak For Themselves”. These are animal welfare advocates, not animal rights” people. Many of them eat bacon, steak and hunt wild game. We are not against Horse Shows featuring flat shod natural Tennessee Walking Horses. According to famous Tennessean newspaper Sportswriter Mr. David Climer, “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses is akin to “Dog Fighting” and “Cock Fighting”. For years, many of those involved in the Tennessee walking horse industry have yearned for its competitions to be taken seriously as a legitimate sport. Blood sport, yes. Legitimate sport, no. Sorry, but I’m calling horse excrement. Soring is still in common practice, and everybody knows it.” Native Tennessean MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says: "the “Big Lick” is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses. The fact is the big lick can only be accomplished by soring. When one soring technique becomes detectable, another one is developed. The big lick is a learned response to pain and if horses have not been sored, they do not learn it.” CCABLAC animal welfare advocates have peacefully publicly demonstrated against this Animal Cruelty from the Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach, FL; to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC; to Nashville, Columbia & Shelbyville, Tennessee; to Times Square in your New York City; to the Nation’s Capitol in Washington, D.C. Videos taken by CCABLAC animal welfare advocates at “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Shows have reached over 7+ million persons. The Tennessee public has responded to calls to “BOYCOTT” the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. The Federal Rule has unprecedented Bi-Partisan support. The lead Sponsor is Tea Party Republican Rep. Ted Yoho, DVM (R-FL) who is a large animal vet. The other lead sponsor is Blue Dog Democrat Rep. Kurt Schrader, DVM (D-OR), also a large animal vet. The Federal Rule was proposed on July 26, 2016. Over 135,000 public comments were made, and 95% favored publication of the Rule in the Federal Register. Over 182 U. S. Representatives wrote a letter to the Secretary of Agriculture on October 25, 2016, “strongly” urging U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to “expeditiously finalize” the Rule (to abolish ‘Big Lick’ Animal Cruelty). The American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Horse Council have strongly endorsed the proposed Federal Rule. They know the score. Mr. President, key persons in the Republican establishment have been bought and paid for where this issue is concerned. Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) blocked a vote on this in 2014. Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has taken over $750,000.00 from the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty interests since 1988. He will not let this measure be voted upon by the U. S. Senate. Mr. President, please do the right thing to help “The Horses” who cannot speak for themselves” To do so, you will have to go against some key members of the Republican Establishment, but by doing so, you will win over many people who have doubted you. It is what you promised when you ran for President, and said yesterday in your Inaugural Address: “The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes starting right here and right now. Because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.” Mr. President, “the establishment” will not protect “The Horses” who cannot speak for themselves. This is a marvelous opportunity for you to "Make America Great Again" by taking the side of these magnificent horses who cannot speak for themselves. Mr. President, please fulfill YOUR promise to “WE, The People”, and "Make America Great Again", by helping “The Horses” Who Cannot Speak For Themselves". ---------------------------------------------------------------------- After you SIGN, please SHARE this petition with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! A CCABLAC delegation will deliver Your PETITION Signatures and Comments to the White House, Secretary of Agriculture and Director, OMB (Office of Management and Budget). WE, The People, CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty) - “We Speak FOR “The Horses” Who Cannot Speak For Themselves”.
