Alaska’s Wolves Need Your Help
Hundreds of wolves have been killed in Alaska -- shot to death by gunners in low-flying aircraft or chased to exhaustion and shot at point-blank range. Please help us stop the killing -- take action now to urge the Bush Administration to put an end to aerial gunning in Alaska.

In the past five years, more than 700 Alaskan wolves have been brutally slaughtered by gunners in aircraft. Now another season of aerial gunning is underway. With your help, we can stop this awful practice! 
Take action now to help save the wolves -- Sign our petition to urge the Bush Administration to put an end to aerial gunning in Alaska.
Easy targets against fallen snow, wolves are gunned down from airplanes or chased to exhaustion, then shot at point blank range. State-licensed marksmen can target entire packs -- even pregnant mothers!
Last year alone, nearly 100 wolves were slaughtered from the skies. Fortunately, the state fell way short of their goals. But this year could be worse. Anxious to make up for last year, hundreds more wolves could be targeted this season.
It’s not wolf management. It’s a wolf massacre.
Tell the Bush Administration to enforce the Federal Airborne Hunting Act, the federal law that could put an end to the killing.
Wolves help the overall health of natural ecosystems. They help keep Alaska's moose and caribou populations healthy and strong. Wolves are also important to Alaska's billion-dollar tourism industry.
Yet the state continues to allow aerial gunning. In fact, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and the state legislature have approved spending $400,000 in taxpayer funds to promote the slaughter from the skies -- fearing Alaskans will once again vote to restrict this barbaric practice, as they have twice before.
Please sign this petition right now and help us end aerial gunning in Alaska.
Our wolves are a crucial part of the natural heritage that we’ll leave our children and grandchildren, and we have a real chance to end this terrible practice.

No observation permits issued for start of Canadian seal hunt

Marianne White , Canwest News Service

Published: Thursday, March 27, 2008

Animal welfare activists accused the Canadian government Thursday of denying them access to the start of the seal hunt to "cover-up" the annual harvest just as the European Union is weighing a ban on the import of seal products.

The hunt was to begin half an hour before dawn Friday in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence but observers and journalists will not be able to document it because they were not issued permits by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

"The government is determined to do everything in its power to stop people from documenting what happens on the ice flows," charged Rebecca Aldworth, director of Canadian wildlife issues for the Humane Society of the United States.

"I would stand between a swinging club and a baby seal"... Katia Louise


This is my face

ECONOMIC FACTS:
The Seal hunt is a fur trade issue and revenues from the slaughter account for less than 1 percent of the province's economy... yet the government actually subsidizes the hunt and calls it a 'harvest'.

Is the Seal Hunt Economically Important?

No. Sealing is an off-season activity conducted by fishermen
from Canada's East Coast. They make, on average, one twentieth of their
incomes from seal hunting and the rest from commercial fisheries. Even
in Newfoundland, where 90 percent of sealers live, revenues from the
hunt account for less than 1 percent of the province's economy and only
2 percent of the landed value of the fishery. According to the
Newfoundland government, out of a population of half a million people, less than 6,000 fishermen participate in the seal hunt each year.

The commercial seal hunt is an activity that Canada's federal
government could easily replace with economic alternatives, should it
choose to do so.

Here's what people are saying as they sign this petition...


Mar 28, 2008, Kate Simpson , Pennsylvania
Please stop Canada's annual massacre of baby seals and ban the import of all seal products. Until this occurs, we will vote with our dollars, boycotting Canadian tourism, products and seafood. We also will remember and share the stories and images of Canadian atrocity. Barring witnesses to the hunt cannot make the world blind to it. We watch with horror and revulsion.

Mar 28, 2008, Aneliese Krulicki , Canada
The seal hunt must be stopped. As a Canadian, I am ashamed that this country would promote such a barbaric act of unnecessary cruelty.

Mar 28, 2008, Dream Catcher , Netherlands
Are we really, the most "evoluted/advanced" species on the universe? Quote Frederico S " AGREE !!! Why doesn't the canadian gouverment allow witnesses on the ice? BECAUSE IT'S THEIR BLOODY SHAME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Mar 28, 2008, Francesca Lazarski , United Kingdom
They must be really worried about the truth of their barbaric hunt getting out...but the fact is we all KNOW already how horrific & un-necessary this cull is. Stop treating people like they are idiots, please. And stop the murder of all these innocent creatures; some of the baby seals are only 2 weeks old - it's like killing a human baby; they are innocent, vulnerable and unable to protect themselves.

Mar 27, 2008, Julie Stuckey, Florida
Without change, there is no growth. A culture that chooses not to 'grow', dies. life = life! There is no way to justify the sad & inhumane slaughter of Canada's seals. The worst part to this unethical 'hunt' is how & why it is being done...it is morally WRONG & DE-HUMANIZING. The seals can't run or hide. A seal can't fight back with it's little flippers...IT IS SICK! ONLY A PSYCHOPATHIC MONSTER COULD THIS! Canada's annual slaughter of 100's of thousands of 1-3 month old babies is a horrifying stain upon humankind. Sealer's are a grotesque example of humans participating in dated & cruel 'traditions'. The sealers relentless & barbaric killing, reflect weakness to greed. This 'hunt' is an unethical practice that blackens the soul. Anyone who supports this type of cruelty is a disgrace to us all & to what it means to be a human!. Please show compassion & empathy to our planet's fellow creatures. Plants & vegetables get 'harvested', NOT living, feeling beings! If CANADA has nothing to hide, then observers should have complete access. If the 'seal hunt' is something so horrifying & evil that the world is forbidden to see, then why is it happening? Canada's DOA 'humane regulations' reflect a total loss of moral integrity. There is NOTHING HUMANE about the painful & terrifying murder of an animal for it's fur (or penis or body fat). What socio-path(s) created the idea of 'bleeding' as being 'more humane' I hope and pray that the EU bans seal products. Then, the shameful DOA of Canada will have to reform its barbaric structure and try to evolve...beginning with Harper.

Mar 28, 2008, Samantha Overy, Australia
This is obviously not a democratic country because that would enable freedom of choice such as where and when to film and document total barbaric bashing and butchering of defenceless seal pups. To condone this extremely cruel practice is heinous and abhorrent. Passive bystanders who want the rest of the world to have a view are banned. Canada your lack of animal welfare is pitiful. I once heard Loyola Hearn say it is an abattoir on the ice... What a bare faced lie!!! The MEAT at an abattoir is eaten not strewn all over the ice to rot after the animals have been bashed and skun, some still alive. Canada your animal welfare needs to be brought into the current century and you need to provide some real employment for these annual animal abusers whose barbaric behaviour you condone.

Mar 28, 2008, Katia Louise, California
I pray for protection over each and every baby seal. Those involved with this horrific 'hunt', including the Prime Minister can choose compassion rather than violence and they have the power to reverse this slaughter. Wake up Canada, the world is watching. Every hunting action, every swing with a club, every shot fired will penetrate the hearts of millions of people who oppose this 'harvest' world wide. When you swing at a baby seal you swing at me. No act of violence can be justified. This is a crime against humanity and it must end. Katia Louise

Time to help out and add this click to your daily routine:

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals.

It takes less than a minute (Less than 20 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box 'fund food for animals' for free. This doesn't cost you a thing.
Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site! Add it as a shortcut on your computer and click it every day.

Please join us as we ambitiously endeavor to increase awareness around the world by enlightening those who may not otherwise be in touch with the importance of animal welfare and to strengthen the voice of those who actively care by connecting, inspiring and motivating people to take action as part of in a world movement to end animal cruelty.

 

Pet Lovers & Sports Fans: How is China "Cleaning Up" for Olympics?

 

Love your dog? Love your cat? Just love animals? So do many people in China but how about the government... See how China is 'cleaning up' in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

 

China, the up and coming economic power of the world is profiting from a hidden 'dog and cat' fur trade worth over 7 billion dollars. Who's pets are next?

 

We’ve chosen the Chinese fur trade to serve as our primary focus in addressing animal cruelty since China remains absent of any animal rights/welfare protection laws. Further China uses their escalating crimes of gross animal cruelty to fuel their status as a rapidly growing economic power in the world.

 

Right now millions of domestic dogs and cats, not to mention rabbits, foxes, coyotes, mink, raccoons and other animals are suffering unconscionable treatment and agonizing death in China. This is a government where most animals including pet dogs and cats mean nothing more than a growing economy from their ‘meat’ and ‘fur’. There are no animal welfare laws for cats, dogs and captive wild animals in China. Yet world wide fur production is outsourced to China because of their low labor costs.


Please join us. Spread the word. Help to encourage other people to take action against this horrific act of violence. Come visit us at Care2 at "Voice for Change A Universal Social Movement for Animal Welfare" to take quick action. Stop the Cruelty. End the Atrocity.


Thank you.

If you're online, please take a minute to copy and paste this letter and email it to the Prime Minister of Canada now. (or write your own email...)
...The baby Harp seals are in their final hours before the horrific clubbing begins.
Email address is: pm@pm.gc.ca

The Right Honourable Stephen Joseph Harper
Prime Minister Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1A 0A2

Dear Sir,
Please make Canada a beacon of a humane society. Canadian leaders should help Newfoundlanders, but supporting Newfoundlanders doesn’t have to mean supporting the seal market. Overall, the seal slaughter costs Canada more than it earns, through subsidies and Coast Guard ships and ice breakers – and loss of global good will.

I speak for millions of people world wide when I say that the world is watching you very closely. The seal hunt must be banned immediately. You have been presented with countless petitions signed the world over, representing a loss if respect Canada and a willingness to Boycott Canada good should you chose to move forward with the hunt. You've received scientific studies and reports that clearly indicate that the Harp seal population has been threatened by the hunts for a years, to the point of near endangerment therefore a continuation of this hunt would clearly represent your disrespect for environment welfare. You have also received reports from credentialed authorities which prove that ending the hunt will not cause financial hardship to those involved. Lastly, please consider the brutality involved and how your endorsement for this heighten level of violence would very well be seen as a huge mistake. The abolishment of animal cruelty should be a mainstream focus with regard to the association between crimes against animals and crimes against people. As stated by the National District Attorneys Association, “Animal cruelty can be linked to the vast majority of serial killers, many habitual violent offenders, and most children and teens who kill.” Furthermore the abolishment of animal cruelty should be one of the driving forces against terrorism around the world.

Please end the seal hunt now.

Sincerely,
Your name
Country, State/ Province
