FWC: Change Your Bear Killing Policy
FWC Change Your "Aggressive Bear" Killing Policy Under the current FWC policy, any bear that acts aggressively is killed. This policy does not take into account the circumstances that cause bears to act aggressively. In recent news a woman in Longwood, FL let her dog outside off-leash at night. The dog spotted a mother bear with cubs and started barking at the bears. The woman tried to run back to her house, which caused the bear to chase after her. She tripped and fell and hit her head. The bear bit her ankle. The mother bear perceived the dog and woman as a threat and as a warning bit, the woman and retreated. This incident could have been prevented had the Longwood community been properly storing their trash the main culprit in almost all bear-human conflicts. Also, dogs should be leashed, and if you live in bear country, you must canvass the area before taking your dog out and never run from a bear. We need to hold the FWC accountable for enforcing the standards and laws put into place to protect both humans and bears. In cases where bear attacks occur due to human negligence. A new policy must be implemented that holds humans accountable for their actions. Bears should not be killed for defending themselves or their cubs. Contact the FWC Commissioners and ask that a policy change be made that protects bears from being killed as a result of human error or carelessness. https://myfwc.com/con…/fwc-staff/senior-staff/commissioners/ https://www.beardefenders.org/

Petition to RMEF , Kyle Weaver, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Kelly Susewind
Stop the hunting in the Authur S. Coffin Colockum Wildlife Game Reserve.
Starting in 2018 the natives decided that it was thier right to start hunting big bull elk in the Colockum Authur S. Coffin Game reserve. This is not native-owned land nor do they have rights to the herd as the herd was transplanted. They are also hunting a gmu that was intended for only special tag permit holders only (gmu 251). They are also driving offroad wherever they please instead of harvesting and walking it to the vehicle. Hunting needs to he halted until legalities are situated before the herd takes an even further devastating hit.

Petition for Ms. Tuyet (bà Tuyết)/Mrs. Snow to be relinquished of ownership rights to Mina
If Ms. Tuyet (bà Tuyết) / Ms. Snow does not voluntarily give up custody of Mina, it is a matter of public opinion that we the People support any legal actions taken by Mina’s rescuers, to fight for the custody of Mina. We are petitioning to declare that Mina stay in the care of and that ownership be granted to any one of Mina’s rescuers; Members of the Phu Quoc Animals Rescue, Duong Hieu, Joey T, or Cứu Trợ Chó Mèo Kiên Giang (Kien Giang Cat Dog Rescue) Background on Mina: Video clips were shared via social media from locals showing a dog lying on the floor, surrounded by blood. Clips included scenes of a woman cutting off the dog’s right front paw. The incident was recorded on 9/19/17 in Phu Quoc Vietnam, and the clip was reported to have been recorded by a neighbor. In an interview video, the owner stated that Mina chased her ducks and bit others. In anger, the owner cut off Mina’s front right paw. Ms. Tuyet (bà Tuyết) / translated to English is Mrs. Snow, is reportedly be the owner of the dog. In negotiations, Mina was taken away for medical treatment by a group of rescuers and an Association. It took 3 days for the people of the Association to be able to take Mina into Rach Gia (mainland) and because Mina’s leg was still strapped with a wire, his leg ended up necrosis and infected. To ensure the life of Mina, the Association initially agreed to do minor surgery to remove the infected part of the leg infection on 9/22/17 and provided follow-up care of injections; drug infection + infusion + drug Increases resistance. After seeing his health stabilized, on 9/24/17 Mina was moved to a Sasaki Veterinary Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City. Mina was provided with a week of wound healing by foreign experts and by the veterinarian medical team using the best medicine. Every option was to retain the rest of his leg. Unfortunately, all the efforts of the medical staff could not save Mina's leg. The necrotic wound in the skin had spread, which forced foreign experts to consult and it was decided that Mina would have to undergo a major surgery. They decided to remove Mina's wounded leg (his shoulder joint is also removed). On 10/23/17 a video footage showed Ms. Tuyet (bà Tuyết) / Ms. Snow had come to see Mina and possibly take him home. Mina fled away on his 3 legs from the owner in terror. Mina is traumatized at the very sight of his owner who had inflicted merciless cruelty onto him. It is in Mina's best interest for Mina to stay in the care of his rescuers in order to receive the best quality of life. We are petitioning that ownership rights for Mina, be revoked from Ms. Tuyet (bà Tuyết) / Ms. Snow and for ownership rights to be granted to any one of Mina’s rescuers; Members of the Phu Quoc Animals Rescue, Duong Hieu, Joey T, or Cứu Trợ Chó Mèo Kiên Giang (Kien Giang Cat Dog Rescue)
Petition to LG (Bon-Joon Koo, CEO), Samsung, President & CEO Gregory Lee, President Oh-Hyun Kwon, CEO Kun-Hee Lee, President Daniel Eum (Samsung Research America), Hyundai Motor Company (Mong-Koo Chung, Chairman and CEO), Kia Motor Company (Hyoung-Keun (Hank) Lee, Vice Chairman and CEO), POSCO, SK Holdings, President Youngwook (“YW”) Park
Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, LG, POSCO, SK, FILA and all South Korean Companies: Adopt a company policy to ban dog and cat meat consumption!
Dear Owners of Samsung, Hyundai, Genesis, Kia, LG, POSCO, SK, FILA and all South Korean Companies, Please watch this: https://youtu.be/cCdTceduKcY Many of your employees and management are eating dogs and even cats, contributing to the uncivilized and inhumane dog and cat torture in South Korea, which you just saw in this video. When people in other parts of the world think of Korea, the first thing that comes to their mind is how Koreans horribly treat these dogs and brutally kill them to make them into soup. When this is their first thought, you have lost an opportunity to gain a customer and sell your product. Starting almost 10,000 years ago, dogs have held a special place in human society as helpers and companions in mutually beneficial relationships, and the rest of the industrialized world recognizes and protects them for this reason. To our fellow human beings, dogs symbolize love, affection, loyalty, and altruism, but in South Korea dogs are raised in cruel confinement and various methods of slaughter totally void of compassion are used on them. This is unbecoming of humankind. In the worst cases they are beaten to death slowly and deliberately in the belief that this softens the meat. Your customers do not support the cruel and barbaric treatment of these animals, and if they discover that you close your eyes to this brutality they will no longer want to spend their money on your products. Your customers will be horrified at your profound indifference and complete disregard of the unimaginable agony and suffering of these animals. Whether a dog or cat is a “farmed” animal or a beloved family pet, their savage slaughter is unacceptable to the rest of the world. You must let your company stand against these heinous crimes and this grisly illegal industry. We request that you: 1. Formally adopt and implement a policy to ban dog and cat meat consumption and terminate immediately those who violate this policy. This policy should be enforced at all your companies and their subsidiaries, as well as other companies with whom you have business transactions. 2. Adopt a policy to protect and provide a safe environment for your employees to report those who violate the dog and cat meat ban policy. 3. Provide a mandatory education to 100% of your employees about the horrors of the dog and cat meat industry and what they can do to fight this cruel industry. 4. Use your position and resources to petition your government to enact a law against the dog and cat meat consumption. 5. Donate generously to the Korean animal rights organizations, rescue groups, and the campaign against dog and cat meat consumption in South Korea. 6. Create a culture of compassion and empathy instead of apathy and indifference. By complying with these requests, you will gain the respect of your customers and the rest of the world. If you do not, we will persist with boycotts against your company that will continue to have a major economic impact on your business and brand image. Please act now and make a difference. Albert Einstein said, "The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit.” It is better late than never. We are hopeful that compassion will prevail over grievous and rampant injustice to dogs in South Korea and that you, as economic leaders of South Korea, will take steps to help bring this terrible injustice to an end! Sincerely,

Petition to The Children's Farm at The Center
Ask Children's Farm at The Center to Become Slaughter-Free
We are asking The Children's Farm at The Center in Palos Park, IL to stop the routine slaughter of animals in their SAGE program. With this change, The Center has the ability to make our community a kinder and more peaceful place to live. While the program aims for transparency in their hands-on farming practices at their children's farm camp, there can be no real transparency in animal farming without exposing children to the violence of slaughter. This is why we are suggesting that if the program aims to truly teach children all of the intricacies of ethical and sustainable farming, that the children are taught how to grow crops or garden instead. Above all else, we want The Center to know that if they agree to make the shift towards an ethical and sustainable plant and crop-focused SAGE program, we pledge to offer our support, resources, and to volunteer our services during the transition in any way that may be need. We are kindly asking the leaders of this organization to recognize that no animal farming can be ethical or humane since it is no longer a necessity in our modern day society, but a choice, and that evolving towards a kinder lifestyle is already in alignment with The Center's mission of peace, celebration of life, and healing. We are asking the leaders of this organization to be an example to the children showing them how to be compassionate even in times when it may not be convenient, how to use our positions of power to help others rather than to take advantage of them, to show kindness to others even when those around us are not doing the same, and to be kind and merciful simply because it is the right thing to do. The Center can do this by sparing the lives of these gentle, innocent animals because they are sentient beings who have the capacity to feel and suffer, and these animals are no different from our beloved cats and dogs. As quoted from The Children's Farm at The Center's website: "All creatures, big and small, our Lord, our God made them all." Animal farming, even on a small, farm-to-table scale, is neither ethical nor sustainable. In addition to its innate cruelty, animal farming has been attributed to a mass global depletion of resources, being the leading cause of environmental destruction, rain forest destruction, species extinction, water depletion, ocean dead zones, habitat loss, human disease in the western world, and child starvation in the eastern world. If we are to teach our children anything that would benefit and empower them for their own future, it should be how to preserve the earth’s precious resources by implementing sustainable veganic farming practices, healthy eating habits, and ultimately kindness and reverence towards all life. If we are presented with the option to choose kindness, why wouldn't we? Thank you so much for your time. We truly appreciate it!
