Keep Gray Wolves Safe From Slaughter
This is it. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt has declared a nationwide war on wolves. He's pulled the plug on saving America's wolves by stripping Endangered Species Act protection from nearly every wolf in the lower 48. The fate of this species now rests with the states. Here's what will happen next: We'll return to the days when wolves were shot on sight, crushed in steel traps and poisoned with their families in their dens. Thousands of wolves will die. And more than four decades of work to save these iconic animals will come to a screeching, bloody halt. It's unacceptable, and we must stand up against it. Across the country these smart, social animals are still just getting a toehold on survival after being driven to the brink of extinction. Only a single known wolf pack lives wild in all of California, where packs once roamed free. In the few places where wolves exist today they still face persecution. States beholden to special interests are eager to let them be hunted, trapped and poisoned with the same kind of violence that nearly drove them extinct more than a century ago. Remember what happened after Bernhardt ended protection for Yellowstone's grizzly bears. The state of Wyoming quickly launched a plan to let trophy hunters shoot more than 20 bears that wandered out of the national park. Thankfully the Center for Biological Diversity and wildlife activists like you stopped the grizzly hunt. We have to do the same for Berhnhardt's plan for our wolves — or we risk putting this beloved species on the path toward extinction once again. The Center has launched legal action to fight back. We won't stop fighting until wolves are safe from persecution. Sign the the petition today to join the fight.

Protection of the Mt. Charleston blue butterfly
The expansion of the Lee Canyon Ski Area, located on Mount Charleston in Las Vegas, NV, poses a great threat to the Mount Charleston blue butterfly, an endangered species. The Center for Biological Diversity has the intent to sue the Trump administration's U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service due to their failure of protecting this species. However, they need your assistance to make a greater impact. This blue butterfly species is already endangered due to habitat loss, increasing the size of the ski area would not only cause more habitat loss but also increased summer recreation, the time in which the butterflies are most active. This expansion would add an extensive network of biking trails and a "mountain coaster" directly in the center of the species' habitat. Even though the blue butterfly is protected under the Endangered Species Act, ensuring the Fish and Wildlife Service must make certain that federal actions do not jeopardize the species, nor its habitat in any way, they simply disregarded the majority of the butterfly's habitat as "not suitable". Doing this has allowed potentially allowed for massive habitat disturbances to occur, such as construction. The habitat in which the blue butterfly thrives, the Spring Mountains, are an extreme case of biodiversity. The Spring Mountains house a variety of animals as well as plants that live no where else on the planet. These species are critical to the blue butterfly's survival. Any form of construction, or disturbance to the blue butterfly's habitat could devastate the population of this already endangered species. This expansion has the potential to make this butterfly extinct. photo courtesy of Corey Kallstrom / USFWS
Petition to Mayor Kurt Bradburn & Sandy City Council
Stop the Unnecessary Killing of Deer in Pepperwood
Some residents of Pepperwood (a PUD in Sandy, UT) claim there are too many deer in our neighborhood which creates an intolerable nuisance and a potential hazard. They therefore propose the population of deer in Pepperwood be severely reduced. These assertions have been repeatedly made without demonstrated data collection or documentation. Because the Utah DWR has “discontinued its translocation in urban deer program” (Utah Division of Wildlife News, Thursday May 02, 2019), the only remaining option is “lethal removal” (same DWR article). This means killing the deer with hired bow and arrow hunters in the midst of our neighborhood and on the streets of Pepperwood. Furthermore since deer are migratory, any proposal or plan presented to Sandy City or the DWR/DNR to kill deer should not rest with Pepperwood alone. Pepperwood and the surrounding communities are a deer migration corridor and should be properly studied before any action is considered or approved. Therefore we the undersigned strongly oppose any action to kill deer in our neighborhood as it is not proven to be necessary and poses dangers to residents, children and pets. Instead we propose an education program to inform residents how to live with wildlife.

Rescue of neglected pitbull
I’ve known about boss for about a week and a half now. I found out that one of my grandmas “tenants” had a dog down on a lot of land they’re “supposedly” renting from her. I asked the owners of the Boss if I could go down and give him water and food and meet him. Because I’m an animal lover (especially pitbulls). After going down to the lot I found that boss was 90% staying outside. When I first saw him he was very timid and tried to seek shelter under a very small tree (which offered him no shelter from the weather. After getting boss to warm up to me he immediately turned into the most warm and kind pup ever. It was overwhelmingly clear to me that the dog was shown little to no attention. He acted like he hadn’t been giving a good scratch’n in a very very long time. His (log) chain was attached to an old gate put up by my grandfather a long time ago, And he had about 10ft of space to roam. The only shelter available to him was a small “dog house” that clearly could not withhold rain. With no door, and straw as the “bedding”. (Keep in mind it was 38F° And raining the first time I saw Boss. He had no water in his water bowl and no food in his food bowl. The only food available to him was a bag of (damp) dry dog food inside the trailer. ( the owners knew I was going to feed the dog) (with evidence and witness’s). After asking someone (who had been attempting to collect rent from these people) for a while now how these people treated Boss. She went on to tell me how on multiple occasions she has had to go down and feed Boss. She also mentioned one occasion where they were asked to bring boss to our house because the man that also claims ownership of Boss was “beating him. There have been many people in the community who have told me that Boss isn’t the first animal they have neglected like this. After taking into my own hands and removing Boss from that space. I was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor 1 count of petty theft. And have spent 72 hours incarcerated because of it. I am now facing up to 6 months in jail and 2 years of probation. If you’d like to see Boss’s story. You can watch it from the beginning on my TikTok (jay.plvg). Or look for the hashtag #saveboss. Also links to donate to help me help boss are all in my bio there as well. My goal is to have boss rescued and put in a loving and caring home. For charges of neglect and animal cruelty brought upon his “owners” Also to have the charges against me dropped considering I was acting in the best interest of boss removing him from those conditions.
Petition to City Of Dunlap TN
Second Chance Animal Shelter Petition
Greetings citizens of Dunlap TN. My name is Krysti Miller. Like you I have been a member of Dunlap for many years now. During these years, I have noticed countless animals being abandoned, mistreated and even dropped off in the middle of the woods to fend for themselves. Nothing seems to be getting done about this. This town treats every member like family, and yet many of us are forgetting about the four legged members of that family. Many people believe that animals do not have feelings; but I beg to differ. I have worked with and along side animals my entire life and have seen these emotions first hand. I have seen a mother horse go into a fit of depression after loosing her newborn foal. I have witnessed a dog yelping in pain for days after being hit by a car and having several bones broken in the process. I have witnessed the excitement of an animal that has been left alone all day, after its beloved owner returned. I have witnesses animals lashing out, and cowering in a corner of a cage in fear...Against many of your beliefs, animals do have feelings. God did not give us these animals for us to abuse them. We need to put in the time and effort to help our four legged family members who have no one to look out for them. We need to look out for the ones who have been randomly dumped because their family either cant afford to take care of them, or just had a baby and no longer wants them. We need to look after the ones who end up being dumped and get shot for doing nothing but going through someone's garbage trying to find some way to feed themselves when they are used to their family making meals for them. I have seen many new business' and buildings being made in this town, like the small water area now in Harris Park. While I believe it is a great idea to give kids that area to enjoy, I also find myself wondering...is that really nessacary? Why build something that will only be used during the spring and summer months, when we can be using those resources to create something that will help and be used year round during EVERY month and season.I ask you, please help me in making a difference. Please help me make a home for our forgotten family members and give them the same second chance that we all deserve. Thank you.
Petition to The Honorable Governor Andrew Cuomo, Columbia Greene Humane Society, Paul Czajka, District Attorney Columia County, N.Y., Stephen Barry, Assistant District Attorney, The Honorable Letita James, Attorney General New York State, Matthew Bershadker, CEO
STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y.
This petition " STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y" is being sent to The Honorable Andrew Cuomo to request the Governor's help to finally end the Animal Neglect in Columbia, County, N.Y. In Columbia County, Columbia Greene Humane Society "may" investigate reports re: Animal Neglect in Columbia/Greene Counties, and the Police "must" investigate all reports of Animal Neglect. Paul Czajka, District Attorney Columbia County is "responsible" to investigate alleged crimes in cooperation with law enforcement, and file criminal charges or bringing "all" evidence before the Grand Jury. The overt Animal Neglect in Columbia County at one farm has been ongoing since 2014 despite numerous complaints by the public to the authorities, police intervention and arrest, eye witness testimony, photos, videos, expert testimony, shipping records, sales receipts, and other indisputable evidence. It appears Columbia County is becoming "well known" by the Equine Community and General Public for failing to enforce the New York State Agriculture & Markets Animal Cruelty laws at one very well known "Hoarder" and "Animal Abuser" operating under the guise of a "horse rescue". We the people, respectfully request Columbia Greene Humane Society, New York State Police, and the Columbia County District Attorney's Office investigate, file charges, and prosecute the violator of the NYSAGM Animal Cruelty laws and finally "STOP the Animal Neglect ongoing in Columbia County, N.Y." The children in the community don't understand why the authorities are not helping the suffering, neglected and abused horses, and the Adults have no rationale explanation to give the children. Maybe somebody can explain to the "Public" the reason why the authorities appear to "allowing" the ongoing Animal Neglect of these horses in Columbia County, N.Y. and why they are not stopping it ? Please sign the petition to " STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y." and restore the Public's trust in the authorities and the judicial system, and more importantly finally "help" the suffering horses. Perhaps the "Public" should withhold "supporting" any Animal Welfare Group in the "area" where the ongoing Animal Cruelty violations are occurring until it finally ends. Hopefully, the Honorable Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York State and his staff will "remind" the local authorities of their responsibility to enforce the New York State Agriculture and Markets laws prohibiting Animal Cruelty. Thank you for signing this petition to help the horses at one well known, disgraceful horse farm located in Columbia County, N.Y. where the horses are intentionally being "starved" and they are "not" recent rescues as portrayed. If you see something, say something, or the painful suffering of these horses will continue forever. Thank you in advance for your anticipated support.
Petition to YouTube, Google, Google, Inc, Google Inc.
I want YouTube to do something about the fake animal rescue channels, who put animals in dangerous situations intentionally, abuse them and even occasionally kill them, for views and revenue! Also there are other kinds of animal cruelty on platform like hunting with cola trend, animal crashing and other horrible actions. This needs to be stopped! YouTube should take action immediately!
