from Facebook: another Coyote killing contest, Moroc County!
4 years ago

---------http://www.trapfreeoregon.com/Pages/PredatorControl.html general info

We just learned that a coyote-killing contest will be held in Modoc County, California on Feb. 8-10. It is being presented by the Pit River Rod and Gun Club and Adin Supply Outfitters, http://www.adinsupply.com/coyote%20drive.htm. We are strongly opposed to killing contests because of the destruction that they cause, both to coyotes and to the environment as a whole. On a hopeful note, a killing contest in New Mexico was recently stopped when the public spoke up. Please help us stop this Modoc County event by contacting the agencies listed below and sharing this post.

- Lodge a complaint with the N. California BLM office to make sure this contest does not take place on public lands at http://www.blm.gov/ca/forms/feedback/index.php?fo=1

Sacramento, CA 95814

 Sir:

 Jim Kellogg has spent more than a decade on the Commission and it is time for him to move on.

During his previous tenure as a Commissioner as well as Commission President, Mr. Kellogg has repeatedly failed to comply with state law; specifically Fish and Game Code 4807(b), where the Commission is required to report to the California State Legislature no later than January 15th of each year as to the number and condition of all mountain lions killed during the previous year under depredation permits issued by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

 I oppose the confirmation of Kellogg to another term on the Commission.

 Kellogg has failed to comply with Fish & Game Code 4807 for the last six years.
 
His views on wildlife are not in line with the best interest of the resource nor do they reflect the wishes and needs of the people of California.
 
There's a reason for term limits... after serving over a decade with a poor record to show, it's time for a new face and expertise on the Commission.

Dear Sir,

An African antelope, the scimitar-horned oryx, is now thought to be extinct in the wild, hunted to the brink of extinction for its meat, hides and horn-trophies. They once occupied the whole Saraha Desert but there has been no sighting for 15 years.

Texas ranchers are fighting to breed and hunt the critically endangered animal for its meat, hides and horn-trophies- the very thing that caused the animal to go extinct in the first place.

"It’s our private property. We bought these animals, we have propagated these animals and conserved them," Charly Seale, executive director of the Exotic Wildlife Assn., told The Times.

Breeding endangered animals to kill them is NOT conservation, and that critically endangered animals are not your private property when they are protected by international law.

Sir:

According to news reports,  Jamie Olson, a Wyoming-based trapper for the Wildlife Services division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHI, recently posted photos online that depict illegal trapping activities and blatant animal abuse. In some photos, Olson poses with wild animals—including coyotes, raccoons, and bobcats—who are desperately ensnared in cruel steel-jaw traps. What's worse, Olson reportedly allowed his hunting dogs to badly harass ensnared animals and at least one coyote was mauled to death! Olson also apparently failed to check his traps in a timely manner, leaving animals to languish and subject to attack, as evidenced by a photo showing a trapped coyote who was eaten, most likely while still alive, by scavengers.
Graphic photos posted by Olson can be viewed by clicking here and here
Wildlife Services claims that it does not condone cruelty, yet repeated requests for an investigation into the matter and swift disciplinary action have gone unanswered. 

I urge you as USDA officials to take appropriate action regarding this alarming matter.

I promised in the own topic of this petition here , (that I cannot find anymore ), that I will research, because the date 13 December was in 2012 and in 2007 on a Thursday.

IDA , as the petition-site , let me know today that they drop down that petition , it was really a petition from 2007.


They also let me know that they honor my request about giving petitions a date.

I'm very glad with that , it will prevent that a petition can be used again after 5 years as a new petition.

Cull of badgers in England this year
4 years ago

The Coalition Government has decided to conduct a pilot cull of badgers in England this year in a misguided attempt to solve the bovine TB crisis. They intend to do this by shooting badgers as they roam during the night: an untested, inhumane method.

This despite the fact that a 10-year study performed by The Independent Scientific Group on bovine TB, which cost taxpayers £50 million, concluded that culling badgers would make no meaningful contribution to bovine TB control in Britain and could indeed increase the spread of the disease.

This is your last chance to save English badgers before the slaughter begins.

If you think the Government is shooting in the dark please contact Owen Paterson, Secretary of State for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to voice your opposition

PROPOSED SCRIPT TEMPLATE FOR YOU TO COPY AND PASTE FOR EASE OF USE

Dear Valencia County Manager Swingle, Los Lunas Mayor Robert Vialpando, and Executive Director of the Bureau of Land Management Jesse Juen,

I am outraged about the coyote killing contest hosted by Gunhawk Firearms in Los Lunas, New Mexico. Despite enormous public outcry, the owner of Gunhawk Firearms is "dug in" and has said "the hunt will go on." The participants are putting ego ahead of moral and ethical values. A mass body count is not hunting; it is cruelty to these coyotes. The owner of the gun shop is using this killing spree to promote his shop at the expense of the lives of the coyotes. Further, the owner will not divulge to the public where the hunt is taking place throughout New Mexico on public lands, thereby putting New Mexico visitors and residents at risk of being killed while they are on these public lands of the hunt.

I implore you to please do all you can to stop this terrible contest.

Subject: Extreme Cruelty against Animals



State Director Rodney Krischke


William Clay, Deputy Administrator for Wildlife Services


Jeffrey S. Green, Western Regional Director for Wildlife Services


Dear State Director Krischke, Sirs:


Following up on the Animal Welfare Institute's (AWI) letter, I'm writing also to request your immediate investigation and subsequent termination of Jamie P. Olson, as a Wildlife Services (W employee, based in Douglas, Wyoming, for blatant acts of animal cruelty.


As you are no doubt aware of, you can view the following photos published by Mr. Olson:


http://media.sacbee.com/smedia/2012/11/01/22/24/vchnG.So.4.pdf.


As noted and sourced by AWI, they, and Project Coyote, firmly oppose the use of steel-jaw traps for the capture of any species given their inherent cruelty. I am further alarmed that instead of immediately killing the trapped animals, this WS employee inflicted even greater fear and pain on already-suffering animals caught in these brutal traps by allowing dogs to torment or attack the trapped animals as is depicted in several of the photographs.


This is unacceptable behavior for any trapper, but such wanton cruelty and callous disregard for the welfare of these animals is particularly egregious when done by a government employee and must not be tolerated..


Furthermore, another photograph posted on Olsons Twitter page titled Eagles (also shown at this link http://wg.convio.net/site/PageServer?pagename=priorities_wildlife_war_wildlife_kill_methods_trapping_abuse&autologin=true ) demonstrates Olsons failure to check his traps in a timely manner and his disregard for the animals pain and suffering.


I also note that Mr. Olson appears to be the primary organizer of several coyote contest hunts in Montana and one scheduled for January 2013 in Dickson, North Dakota ( article dated October 15, 2012 about the MT contest and the attached flyer advertising the ND contest mentioned at below link).


Click on this link for further information: http://media.sacbee.com/smedia/2012/11/01/22/24/vchnG.So.4.pdf


Mr. Olsons mobile phone number is included in the article. If this is a WS-issued phone, Mr. Olsons use of it to organize and promote a coyote-killing contest is unacceptable and provides additional grounds for his termination.


As you know, WS is a highly controversial program responsible for killing millions of animals each year which is funded, in part, with taxpayer dollars.


While AWI, PC, and WS disagree about the merits of WS's lethal control practices, there should be no question that the intentional infliction of additional suffering on any trapped animal by a WS employee is entirely unacceptable and warrants immediate termination.


Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter and for expeditiously and decisively acting on these concerns. I look forward to receiving your response to this matter in writing by replying to my email address.


Sincerely:

1 mail: Barbaric and cruel trapping must cease in New Mexico
4 years ago

To: mkrscrim@gmail.com

Subject: Barbaric and cruel trapping must cease in New Mexico



Mrs. Mary Katherine Ray,


Dear Madam,

I, the undersigned, seek to prohibit the recreational and commercial use of hidden steel-jaw leg-hold traps, wire snares and other body-gripping animal traps on New Mexico's public lands.
These traps do not reliably differentiate between the intended target and many other non-target animals which may be cruelly maimed or killed.
People and pets are also at risk. Unlimited, profit-driven trapping can harm and deplete wildlife communities. The use of traps is NOT consistent with the "fair chase" principles of ethical hunting.

Ninety percent of New Mexico residents believe trapping should be banned on public lands, according to a report released today by a panel of seven New Mexico citizens. The report was created through online surveys organized by the People's Forum on Public Lands Trapping in New Mexico

The use of body-gripping traps is horribly cruel.

The suffering of animals caught and held by leg hold traps for long hours or days is unjustifiable: they struggle to be free, the agony of a limb imprisoned in sub-zero cold, the pain of injuries caused by the all-out fight to escape, the broken teeth from biting at the trap, the thirst, hunger, anxiety, terror, the menace of attack by other animals.

And the way of death: the trapper clubs the animal, then stands on its chest to cause suffocation.

Barbaric and cruel trapping must cease in New Mexico.
It’s high time New Mexico catch up with Arizona and Colorado and other states that have banned public lands trapping! Please take actions too! Thank you.


Sincerely:

Mauling and stabbing of Pigs

 

Sample letter:

 

Sirs,

In Sarasota County, Florida, you approved a cruel plan that allows hunters to use dogs to hunt down feral hogs.

The hogs will be chased, cornered, and mauled by packs of frenzied dogs and then knifed to death.

This method of wildlife control is exceedingly cruel, especially when there are many less cruel alternatives available!

 Sir, I urge you to overturn your decision. If killing is insisted upon, even the use of sharpshooters would be far less hideous.

Yours sincerely

Important Hearing To Ban Hunting With Hounds

Speak Up For Dogs, Bears And Bobcats!

 

Your voice is needed! California Senate Bill 1221, which would ban cruel "hounding," passed the Senate floor, thanks to IDA members' many calls and e-mails. SB 1221 now faces its biggest challenge in the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26.

Yes on California SB 1221Hounding is a cruel practice where hunters use dogs to chase bears and bobcats for many miles until the exhausted animal either turns to fight or runs up a tree, only to be shot. This is incredibly inhumane and even many hunters consider hounding an "unfair chase" and unsportsmanlike.

The Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee is going to be a tough hurdle, and we need as many animal advocates as possible to fill the hearing room. The opposition will be out in force (there were over 700 at the last hearing) and we need to counter their numbers. If you haven’t come to the capitol for an exciting showdown, this is the one to see! You will get a chance to make comments in support of SB 1221.

If you wish to speak, you will probably get very limited time - all you will be able to say is your name, where you are from, and that you support the bill. Super easy, but super effective!

Please join us for the hearing at the Capitol!

Date: Tuesday, June 26

California black bear in treeTime: The hearing is at 9 a.m., but we are expecting hundreds of opponents and we'll start lining up outside the room at 6 a.m. The earlier you arrive, the better your chances of getting in the room. Hunters are used to getting up early to shoot animals, so let’s show them that we can get up early to protect animals!

Where: Room 4202 in the State Capitol Building, Sacramento, California

For more information and carpooling, contact hope@idausa.org, 707-540-1760.

Important note for constituents of Assemblymember Jared Huffman:

If you are in Assemblymember Jared Huffman’s district, please make a brief, polite phone call today and urge support for SB 1221. To find out who your legislators are, click here and enter your zip code.

(Canned-) Hunting
6 years ago

Hunting might have been necessary for human survival in prehistoric times, but today most hunters stalk and kill animals merely for the thrill of it, not out of necessity. This unnecessary, violent form of "entertainment" rips animal families apart and leaves countless animals orphaned or badly injured when hunters miss their targets.

Hunting also disrupts migration and hibernation patterns and destroys families. For animals such as wolves and geese, who mate for life and live in close-knit family units, hunting can devastate entire communities.

The fear and the inescapable, earsplitting noises from the gunfire and other commotion that hunters create cause hunted animals to suffer tremendous stress. This severely compromises their routine and their eating habits, making it hard for them to store the fat and energy that they need to survive the winter. Loud noises can also disrupt mating rituals and can cause parent animals to flee their dens and nests, leaving their young vulnerable to natural predators.

Hunting is often called a sport as a way to pass off a cruel, needless killing spree as a socially acceptable, wholesome activity. However, sports involve competition between two consenting parties and the mediation of a referee. And no sport ends with the deliberate death of one unwilling participant.

Some hunting groups claim that by obeying laws and killing free-range animals in a manner that does not give humans an "improper advantage" over their prey, the activity constitutes "fair chase." Of course, these same groups encourage hunters to shoot game with rifles, shotguns, and bows and arrows—weapons that no animal has any chance of outrunning, let alone fighting. Furthermore, "free range" as defined today rarely implies the vast wilderness that large game once roamed.
