ACTION ALERT: STOP Coyote Bounties in Ontario ! PLEASE TAKE ACTION !

Animals  (tags: coyotes, wildlife, protection, no bounties, cruel, sadistic )

- 2712 days ago -
This is happening in Ontario, Canada.... Bounties do not control wildlife populations and are immensely cruel, unjustified and senseless. Bounties are a waste of taxpayers' money. The only one that prospers is the bounty hunter at $100 per kill.

$100 per kill, in these hard times so many would take up the gun against this beautiful, wild animal. I hope my signature counts for stopping this carnage.

The ignorance of humans that still do not have a clue as to why this world produces so many species to maintain a heallthy "natural" balance is beyond me.

Canada out of all places with still enough room to move for all species alike. I just can't help wondering in this case and so many others what these criminals tell their families when they come home at night and their 5 year old is asking how their day has been. I can assure you they will be lying their heads off!!

Signed and noted. Why must humans feel that they have to kill to control? The animals are here for a reason, Spiders help by eating insects, Snakes by eating rodents, each one has it's purpos. I don't think we were created to kill all living things but greed overtakes common sense.

PLEASE NOTE, ANY OF YOU WHO CARE ABOUT THIS ISSUE: The Obama Administration - YES, the Obama Administration, inexplicably and incredibly, to me, rolled back a lot of wolf protections in the US, after years and years of dedicated effort by conservationists, wildlife professionals, etc. resulted in them successfully being reintroduced into Idaho, Montana, etc., only to see them gunned down recently by ill-informed people who still believe in the Big Bad Wolf, not to mention thinking that only people have a right to kill any ungulates, etc. A judge threw out one bad ruling recently, so investigate this issue on your own, but the bottom line is that amazingly, wolf protections are worse now than under the (very bad, environmentally) Bush admin. Finally, yes, I've emailed Sec. of the Interior Salazar, Obama, and others about this issue. For more info., see Defenders of Wildlife and numerous other environmental/wildlife organizations (probably NRDC, Earthjustice, the Wilderness Society, etc.).

All life is interrelated, that somehow we're caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality - Jim Wallis.

Noted & signed. If I had a choice, I would prefer to pay them $100 NOT to kill the coyotes. That's how much I value our wildlife. Canada does not have the best reputation for looking after its animals and their habitat--not that we in America do what we should by any means to protect our animals in the wilf (note the wolves and horses for example).

Thanks Simone. I live in Ontario and it's pathetic how hunters kill coyotes using traps, snares, chase them down until they're exhausted with snowmobiles etc. I didn't know the MNR had a 'bounty' on them too which makes it even more heinous.

NOTED & SIGNED: our family home in south-central Idaho, in the Sawtooth Mountain area, used to resound with the lovely singing voices of coyotes in the evening. Until, that is, political opportunists joined forces with profiteering trigger-happy macho jerks; bounties have been carved out of the very same budgets that cut back the school week for kids to only 4 days. This is the kind of insanity and extreme STUPIDITY that prioritizes SHOOTING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT and BLOWING UP EVERYBODY ELSE AROUND THE GLOBE that isn't just exactly the same as the trigger-happy jerks themselves. Mother Earth and only Mother Earth is the expert on Nature's balance. Ignorant and stupid 'humans' have NO RIGHT to alter the Creator's laws.

A Prayer For Animals
Prayers for those beautiful creatures who share our place on Earth. Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful. Nothing should ever be considered a lower form of life. Peace ☮ L♥ve.

First I heard of this. I signed and will be doing some phone calls and faxing. I will not tolerate this. We do not act like this in Ontario. We value our wildlife. We have done great conservation efforts. Saved and expanded forests and protected wildlife. A coyote was in Toronto last year. He was trapped and released. I'll be working on this.
