Petition to chinese Minister of Agriculture, Governor of Yulin GuangXi Province
End the Yulin Dog and Cat meat festival
We at the International Society for Animal Rights are dedicated to end the dog and cat meat trade in the Guangxi Province of Yulin, China. This infamous region is responsible for the highest number of dogs and cats killed Annualy for the "Yulin dog meat and lychee Festival". Support us as we work towards putting an end to this cruel "Festival" and bringing positive change for the helpless Cats and Dogs of China. Dear. Ambassador and Governor of the Peoples Republic of China; We, the people of the world have witnessed the lack of compassion and cruelty inflicted upon the helpless Cats and dogs in Yulin, Guangxi Province. We strongly and respectfully urge you, the Chinese government to end the suffering of the tens of thousands of Cats and Dogs who are being brutally killed at this festival Annually. China is a prosperous and forward moving country where tens of Millions of your own compassionate and devoted citizens have taken a stand against the dog and cat meat trade as well as Animal cruelty all together. You can win the hearts and minds of your Citizens and the citizens off the world by making a change that will move your nation further forward by establishing and passing legislation that will bring Animal protection laws into motion and making it a criminal and punishable offence to anyone who is found guilty of Cruel treatment, Confinement, Abuse, Neglect, Slaughter and any other form of Animal abuse. "All beings tremble before Violence, All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others then whom can you harm? What harm can you do?" - BUDDHA- THE YULIN FESTIVAL: The Yulin Festival, also known as the Yulin dog meat and lychee festival is a brutal occurrence that has taken place every year since 2010. The sheer brutality that takes place every July for an entire month has outraged the world with millions of people all over the world taking a stand against this cruel and evil "Festival" including 10 Million Chinese Citizens who are disgusted and appalled at the atrocities that take place in Yulin. Change is at hand as the next generation of Chinese animal lovers are viewing dogs and cats as companions, rightfully. Each year 10,000 to 50,000 Dogs and Cats are sold and brutally killed at the Yulin festival, some of the methods used to kill these innocent and helpless animals range from violent beatings over the head to being thrown alive into a pot of boiling hot water, other cruel methods that have surfaces have even seen conscious cats and dogs being burned alive with a blowtorch. The fear and helplessness felt by these innocent cats and dogs goes further as it is believed fear makes their meat taste better, this sick and sadistic belief means many dogs are bludgeoned and killed in front of other dogs to incite and trigger fear. Unfortunately, morals and compassion are not prevalent amongst dog meat traders as many have and continue to steal beloved pets from their owners to fuel the ever growing demand for dog and cat meat at this cruel and barbaric "Festival". Animal rights and protection laws are practically non-existent in China and that is one of the toughest hurdles we face as we try to end Animal cruelty in a country where there are no repercussions for harming, Abusing and killing Animals.

Petition to Alun Cairns MP
STOP UNFAIR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST DOGS
I am writing this letter to you today to talk about an issue that has been on going in my community regarding the Cairns City Council. (Animal Management Team)It has come to the point now where I am reaching out for the Members of parliament to help me to get passed this and come to a solution.I have owned my Neo Mastiff x Arab since September 2014, he come to live with my partner and I when he was only 9 weeks old. We have always had animals growing up in our individual families and knew what responsibility it would take us to own a family pet. Our dog, Neo has always been a friendly natured dog, with lots of energy, very playful and has always socialised with other dogs and humans including young children and babies. We have never had to tie our dog up or put him in a cage he has always been a happy loving dog.In 2016, we were renting a property in Bentley Park. As we got settled in we soon noticed nearly every neighbour had a dog also in the street. We were in a high set home so our house was higher than the house next to us with a steel fence. Our dog Neo, jumped the fence one day and we received a phone call that our dog was out on our street roaming. He did not leave the street, he did not run away. After a few calls from neighbours concerned, as Neo is a big dog and can look intimidating to people I suppose. The council come to pick him up and take him to the pound. When we went to see the Council we were informed that Neo had bitten the council man Diary and that they were ought to deem Neo a ‘Dangerous Dog’. Neo stayed at the pound for 2 days until we paid the amount of $250 to have our poor baby come home. Now, I don’t know how they approach the animal or what happens in the instance when a dog is roaming on the streets. But I know that my dog would’ve been grabbed by a pole with a wire loop attached to it put around his neck and taken. If my dog wasn’t feeling intermediating he would not react in such a matter. I have NEVER feared my dog, my partner has never FEARED my dog and either has anyone that comes to my house.The Cost to own a dog that is deemed as a ‘Dangerous Dog’ is $250 a year in registrationWe have spent $210 (20kg-40kg dog) in castrasation for our dog as that is one of the requirements of owning a ‘dangerous dog’The Council gave us 2 weeks to build our dog a 12 x 12m cage with full shade cloth on each panel and tarp on the top. Which was a total cost of $2500 and numerous hours in labour as my partners Father and himself as business man made the custom built cage, just so we could have it mobile to be able to move around if we ever move house.There is no respect, or human decency from the council’s behalf. We feel as if we are and have been HARRASSED and BULLIED for the last 2 years over this matter!We have had numerous phone calls, text messages, letters, and emails from the council all regarding Neo. Phone calls on a Sunday morning eg. Easter Sunday, the Cairns City Council come to inspect the cage had been built, while my family was up from NSW having lunch. And demanded if he didn’t see the cage on that day we would be distributed a fine. After that day, we had confirmation from the council that the cage was up to standard with their requirements. We thought it was all over. FINALLY.Until receiving another request from the council. That the shade cloth around the cage was not up to standard as the front gate hadn’t been covered. He issued us 2 days to have this rectified. I work 5 days a week as a apprentice hairdresser, and my partner owns his own small business as a carpenter. We had no time to go and spend MORE money after the thousands and thousands of dollars we had already spent. They would not give us an extension we had no options.A few days later, we were issued with a fine from the council of $948 for not complying with council requirements. This is when I had enough. I have no option but to start this petition, as my member of parliament to advise you of the Cairns City Council's Animal Management in this town of cairns pushing their power and not having any respect or curtesy to finally put this issue to an END. As you know, life gets stressful at times. With my partner and I working full time jobs, running a small business, paying rent, taxes, dog registrations plus all of the costs now we have to fork out for fines, cages etc. to the CAIRNS CITY COUNCIL. My dog has NEVER jumped the fence since living in Bentley Park back in 2016. We are asking for you help. Please sign this petition and help us to stop this unfair discrimination of our beautiful family pet 'Neo' who we love so dearly.

Our tiny Jack Russell was mutilated and dumped - justice for Honey
Honey, mum’s sweet 14 yr old Jack Russell and much-loved member of the family, was brutally tortured. Mutilated and her body tossed away without a thought. We found her lifeless corpse in a neighbour’s yard. Honey may have been little in size, but had a big heart and glowing personality. Now our sweet furry mate is gone. Another pet innocently taken by the hands of man. We've heard of other incidents of torturous animal abuse in the area -- many going unpunished. We're terrified that Honey's death could be swept under the carpet. I am fed up of reading about poor pets being brutally killed, their abusers getting away free. When is Enough is enough Australia. Our politicians need to harden up on punishments for animal welfare rights. Please help me demand justice for Honey and a crackdown on animal cruelty laws in NSW. Rip little honey girl xx

Register a complaint of serious misconduct against Jiawen Zhang with the University of QLD
On November 14, 2018, Jiawen Zhang, an international student studying engineering at the University of Queensland, mercilessly mutilated and tortured a baby female kitten which was trying to escape from his back yard with her mother. On February 12, 2019, Jiawen Zhang pleaded guilty to serious animal cruelty in Brisbane Magistrates Court and was sentenced to 6 months in prison with immediate parole. Magistrate Terry Gardner called his actions "cruel, callous, and deliberate". I personally intend to register a complaint of serious general misconduct against Jiawen Zhang with the Academic Registrar of UQ in accordance with section 6.2.2 (b) of their Student Integrity and Misconduct policy (doc# 3.60.04a). The purpose of this petition is to add weight to that complaint by demonstrating that the community considers this a serious offence. I hope to convince the Disciplinary Board that the offence committed by Jiawen Zhang is of such a serious nature that they impose a penalty for level 3 general misconduct in accordance with section 8.9(c) of their policy. On November 14, 2018, Jiawen Zhang stole the kitten from its mother and threw it in his sharehouse oven while it was still hot. The kitten's fur was burnt off as she scratched to get out, and she also suffered significant burns to her belly, paws, and legs. Zhang then took the kitten to his room where he began ripping her teeth out, and cutting off her toes with nail clippers, causing significant bleeding. He then took the kitten to his bathroom and attempted to drown her by flushing her down the toilet. Thankfully, he was caught in the act by one of his housemates who had just arrived home. Zhang then tried to get rid of the kitten by throwing her into nearby bushes at his property, but due to the severity of her injuries, the kitten was unable to move. His housemates called police and the kitten was taken to Toowong Family Vet for treatment, which ultimately saved her life. The kitten will have ongoing health issues due to the trauma she sustained from this savage, cowardly assault. I believe that the community will agree that this level of cruelty toward any animal is absolutely unacceptable. I urge the community to join me and add their voices to my complaint to the Academic Registrar of the University of Queensland, let the administrators of UQ know that we are closely watching their response to this incident. They must be made aware that we consider their response a reflection of their attitude towards animal cruelty, and towards community standards of conduct in general. If you wish to contact the University directly in relation to this matter, the person you should contact is Mr. Mark Erickson - email@example.com
Petition to Victorian Councils
Council funded snake removal program
Hello and a Happy new year to all of my community, i write to you asking to sign a petition to encourage our council to join the victorian snake removal program. We want the council to fund a program for the removal of snakes from homes and businesses. It is dangerous to attempt this with no experience and that's when most people get bitten. It is also illegal to kill native snakes due to being protected species. Many people also get bitten when attempting to do so. This leads most people to the conclusion to hire a professional. Even for a professional there are high costs and risks involved so the service doesn't come cheap. This in turn can tempt people to risk relocation or euthenising the snake themselves. There are many councils in Victoria (for example Melton council) that fund this service. We would like to petition our council to fund this service so that our community can be well protected and reduce the risk to our families and pets. This petition is to go to local councils such as Pyrenees, Ballarat, Ararat, Hepburn, Central Goldfields and Southern and Northern Grampians.

Save the platypus - Ban the use and sale of opera house traps in Australia
Every year potentially hundreds of australia's greatest biological mystery the platypus is trapped and drowned in the freshwater crayfish / yabby trap known as an opera house trap.The use of these traps is banned on public land in the states of Victoria and Tasmania, the same can't be said for the rest of Australia, as well as any privately owned bodies of water in the currently prohibited states. The platypus spends most of its life either in its burrow or underwater foraging and exploring in its surrounding waterways, as a mammal they need to return to the surface of the water every 30 seconds to take a breath of air. When a platypus sees an opera house trap containing crustaceans it sees a meal, after entering and eating the trapped crustaceans they find themselves trapped and unable to return to the surface for their next breath of air and drown. The sale of opera house traps supports the drowning of australia's most unique creature and the only mammal known to lay eggs besides four species of echidna, also known as spiny anteaters in some regions. The population of the platypus has dropped from what was once 300,000 to now only a estimated 200,000, if we don't do something soon we will continue to see this number decrease. Solution1. Ban the sale of opera house traps nationwide. 2. Ban the use of opera house traps in private waterways.3. Build public awareness of the dangers to native wildlife from the use of opera house traps and about the use of safe alternatives for trapping the freshwater crustaceans.
