Having trouble keeping up with posting but here are some from Michelle

 

 
Considering the plight of polar bears during the current climactic apocalypse, and given the abject horror of this story, if this doesn't move all of us to action against the legalized hunting of polar bears in Canada, nothing will. By the way, word on the street has it Obama supports this lunacy. Weep for our brother shown in the photo laying dead: victim of three horrific arrow piercings after being run down by dogs and snow mobiles. The third shot ended the life of this magnificent creature, who has allegedly since been stuffed and placed in a museum. Michelle



 


Mission Accomplished: Michelle Liqve Is the First Woman Hunter To "Take Down" A Polar Bear With Bow & Arrow Animals  (tags: Animal Welfare, Animal Cruelty, Polar Bear Hunts, Michelle Liqve Kills Polar Bear With Bow, HORRIFIC HUNTING CRUELTY! ) Michelle - 1 minute ago - womenhunters.com


 


I became overwhelmed as I watched the big bear roll over knowing he was down for good. A lot of emotions come with a hunt of this caliber: excitement at having killed my first bear; amazement at the beauty of the bear; and shock at what I'd just done.

From women who shoot polar bears in Canada for the sick, sadistic "sport" of it to keeping polar bears hostage in tropical Mexican zoos, the madness is never ending. PLEASE sign and share to help rescue Yupi, a female polar bear who has lived in solitary confinement in a Mexican Zoo since 1992. I contacted the petition author requesting more background information. I also wrote them expressing the hope that they have contacted other animal welfare organizations regarding her plight. Has anyone heard of her? Please share any information you have and spread the word. Yupi desperately needs a new home!

 

Thanks dearly, Michelle

Yupi is a female polar bear who was brought to Morelia Zoo in Mexico in 1992 at just a few months old. She came from the wilds of Alaska as an orphaned cub after her mother was killed.

Lately I've been struck by how few petitions posted at Care2 actually get closed and forwarded. It's frustrating but I sign to show my support. The link below takes you to a letter which will be sent to the Canadian government regarding the OUTRAGEOUS and UNCONSCIONABLE commercial hunting of polar bears in their country. Letters are an excellent way to voice concerns and make a great impact when sponsored by animal welfare organizations like the one below. Please modify and personalize the letter, then send, share and cross post. If enough of us shout out against this, Canadians will have no other choice but to listen. TY. Michelle








ACTION ALERT: Tell Canada to Protect Polar Bears! PLEASE SIGN !
Animals  (tags: polar bears, habitat, slaughtered, disappearing, threatened, wildlife, protection )
Simone - 59 days ago - secure.humanesociety.org

Though experts predict that climate change could cause the extinction of polar bears by the end of the century, governments have failed to protect these vulnerable animals from the added pressure of human greed.

Dear Friends: Please lend your voice to the urgent need for elephant welfare in Thailand. Babies are stolen from mothers and beaten repeatedly until they are so battered and broken they are no longer recognizable to their own family members. Signing this petition is a start, but by no means the only measure needed to be taken. Thai embassies, tourist bureaus and businesses need to hear from the world that an end to this barbarity is long overdue. No less will do. Spread the word and take a stand against the barbaric practice of "breaking the love" (Phajaan) of elephants in Thailand.

TY. Michelle



URGENT! TELL THE THAI GOVERNMENT NO MORE ELEPHANT CRUELTY! Protect Elephants From the Practice of Breaking Their Spirits - Force

Michelle - 17 minutes ago - forcechange.com


Thai elephants are a popular tourist attraction. Training methods inflicted upon these gentle giants is a tragic example of how little these creatures are respected. Phajaan is a form of torture baby elephants undergo to break their bodies & spirit. HELP!

Im getting fustrated writting them too... it it VERY VERY rare to get 5000 signatures- seems not that many people actually care about wildlife

I mean, you would think with 18 MILLION member we could scrounge up 5000 signatures????

 

The targets dont take them seriously because the see how many people are here, and how many are actually interested.

Big Wins for Wildlife! Your Voice Beats Out Big Oil

 

Dear Debbie,

Today, the U.S. Senate voted on a number of bills that will have tremendous impacts for America's wildlife. Thanks to advocates like you who have been keeping the pressure on Congress to fight for their constituents' interests instead of Big Oil’s, we are happy to be able to report some big wins for wildlife today:

pelican

* Keystone XL Pipeline: REJECTED!
This amendment would have overturned President Obama's decision to reject the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline--bypassing the environmental review process and giving Congress unprecedented authority to hand out a permit for this dangerous project. The pipeline would put endangered whooping cranes and critical resources at risk of toxic oil spills and drive a rapid expansion of habitat-destroying tar sands operations that could put the lives of thousands of wolves and other wildlife at risk.

* RESTORE Act: PASSED!
The RESTORE Act ensures that Clean Water Act penalties collected from those responsible for the BP oil disaster be dedicated to Gulf Coast restoration--a big win for brown pelicans and other wildlife impacted by the spill. This historic amendment also includes significant authorization and funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the National Endowment for the Oceans, both essential programs to protect key wildlife habitat and natural resources.

* Arctic Drilling: REJECTED!
This amendment would have opened new leases for oil and gas drilling in pristine Arctic wilderness--putting ringed seals at needless risk of potential oil disasters, while boosting Big Oil's billions of dollars in profits. It would have also drastically expanded offshore drilling into vast new areas of our coastline, including the Atlantic Ocean, the California Coast, eastern Gulf of Mexico and Bristol Bay in Alaska.

Thanks to all of you that sent messages, made calls, and spread the word to your friends over the last month--your voices for wildlife were heard loud and clear!

Sincerely,

Sue Brown
