Petition to Hordaland Statsadvokatembeter, Justis- og beredskapsminister Per-Willy Amundsen
Man gets no jail sentence or fine for abusing puppies to death. We demand strict penalty
En 32 år gammel mann fra Bergen ble nylig idømt 21 dager betinget fengsel og forbud mot å ha hund i 5 år, etter å ha mishandlet flere valper til døde. Med den betinga dommen vil han ikke sone en dag i fengsel. Dommen gjaldt den siste valpen, som ble systematisk mishandlet over en periode på flere måneder i 2015. Valpen som het Lord ble ukentlig slått og sparket og påført skader i ben og ribben, og han ble bitt til blods i snuten av eieren. Han døde alene i leiligheten etter å ha blitt mishandlet en siste gang. Mannen har innrømmet å ha gjort det samme med et ukjent antall hunder før. Det er dokumentert at han kjøpte 8 dachsvalper i løpet av noen år, og at 7 av dem døde etter kort tid. Kun en av dem ble reddet etter at den ble oppdaget med bruddskader. De andre døde etter uker med grov mishandling. De led ubeskrivelig og levde i vedvarende redsel i en periode der de var ekstra sårbare og avhengige av beskyttelse. Til tross for dette kan han etter 5 år igjen få eie hund, og i mellomtiden kan han ha andre dyr. Den milde dommen er en hån mot dyrs rettsvern, og den gir en farlig signaleffekt. Den viser at de mest hjelpeløse fortsatt er uten rettsvern i Norge, og at folk kan mishandle dyr til døde uten å få verken bot eller fengselsstraff. Sammenhengen mellom vold mot dyr og vold mot mennesker er grundig dokumentert. Dette bør norsk rettsvesen ta innover seg. Både for dyrs og menneskers sikkerhet er det svært viktig at dyremishandling tas på alvor. Vi ber om at dommen ankes og at strafferammen på 3 års fengsel benyttes i grove saker som denne, i tillegg til fradømming av retten til dyrehold på livstid. English: A 32-year-old Norwegian man gets away with only 21 days conditional imprisonment and a ban on having dogs for 5 years, after mistreating several puppies to death. With the conditional sentence he will not serve a day in prison. The judgment was for the last puppy, who was systematically abused over a period of months in 2015. The puppy named Lord was regularly kicked and beaten, causing injuries to his legs and ribs, and he was bitten in the nose by his owner, leaving an open wound. Ha finally died alone in the apartment from his injuries. The man has admitted to have done the same to numerous dogs before, all of them puppies. It is documented that he purchased 8 dachs puppies before 2015, and that 7 of them died shortly after. Only one was rescued after it was discovered with fractures. The others died after terrible suffering. Despite of this he can own dogs again after 5 years, and in the meantime he can have other animals. The link between violence to animals and violence to humans is well documented. This should be taken into consideration by the Norwegian judiciary. For the safety of both animals and humans it is very important to take animal abuse seriously. We request that the sentence is appealed and that the maximum penalty of 3 years prison is used in cases like this, in addition to denial of the right to own animals for lifetime.
Petition to Bulgarian Ambassador to the United States
Sign: Stop Horrific 'Dog Spinning' Ritual
Every year on March 6th, residents of a village in Bulgaria perform a horrific act called "dog spinning” in the mistaken belief that this will prevent rabies and keep away evil spirits. During this cruel ritual, a rope is tied around a dog's chest, and the dog is suspended above a body of water. The dog is twisted until the rope is as tight as it will get, pressing painfully into the poor animal. Then, the rope is released, and the dog spins around wildly. Before the dog even has a chance to catch its breath, it's dumped into the freezing water. Participants say that the dogs are not harmed during this ritual, but that's completely false. Some dogs have drowned because they're too disoriented to swim to the surface of the water. The dogs who survive are terrified and traumatized by their ordeal. The ritual was officially banned by the Bulgarian government in 2006, but the law is not enforced, and people continue performing the sadistic ritual. For years, animal advocates in Bulgaria have tried to put an end to this atrocity, desperately urging villagers to use stuffed dogs instead. But until police officers start enforcing the ban on the practice, it will keep happening, and more dogs will suffer and die. Sign this petition to tell the Bulgarian ambassador to the United States that you do not want any more dogs tortured and killed in this cruel “spinning” ritual.

Harsher punishment for animal cruelty-Ponce's Law
4/9/2017 I have presented a proposed amendment to our State Legislature for consideration of amending the current animal cruelty laws specifically F.S. 828.12 (2)(a)(b) which is a third degree felony to impose stricter, harsher punishment and penalties in the event of the abuse, torture,and killing of innocent animals. It will give the Judge more freedom to sentence these abusers to jail while also sentencing them to have no contact or owning animals, etc. at the court's discretion. http://clickorlando.com/news/ponce-inlet-man-arrested-after-beating-puppy-to-death-police-say

Tell the state's to stop supporting Pigeon shoots
The pigeon shoot takes place all across the US, even though the acts are illegal. Most the pigeons are starved and deprived of water before being thrown into the air and shot down. The act is cowardly and inhumane. Then, afterwards, most of them are left to die in awful ways, varying from being abandoned and burned alive, all of which is illegal. The act is cruel and no animal deserves to suffer like that, at least in my opinion. I hope we can at least make a difference and save these animals lives. Note- Pigeons are actually not as gross as people make them out to be. https://youtu.be/HcEobsdckoc https://youtu.be/Zbhr0nOlBLI https://youtu.be/7WAMdgktAaQ http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2018/03/sociopaths_leave_pigeons_dead.html?__vfz=rtw_top_pages%3D1335600012222 https://www.animallaw.info/statute/al-cruelty-alabama-consolidated-cruelty-statutes#s11_14 http://thetandd.com/news/local/groups-target-pigeon-shoot-file-complaint-alleging-drones-shot-down/article_6e298813-0189-52e4-945a-8f0eff0a2d1f.html http://www.phillyvoice.com/pennsylvania-clings-to-pigeon-shoots-that-have-nearly-vanished-nationwide/
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”.
Petition to Butch Otter
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. 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.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.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.
