thank you for this news. I agree whole-heartedly. I hope alot of people sign this petition, and it becomes the law. these poor animals are minding their own business, and they're being killed - for nothing. how would us humans feel if we were enjoying ourselves - and we were being killed for no reason?! kalliope - you're the best news person here! all your news is excellent! they all are right on target. you deserve a raise! I can't thank you enough.

S&N dear Kalliope, BUT I would like an address that I didn't have to look up when I want to write personally for help.

I post some in news for California and other places but I would adore it when petitions are posted with a name please give me a address in the first comment then I will try to write, e-mail and call for help.

This is where I take my actions DONE DONE DONE and if I can't do more then I don't feel bad! I just didn't S&N I made my VOICE heard!

I got "this petition is now closed" when I tried to sign. With only 1,666 signatures. WHY???

Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,
the petition is being closed. I only can guess, that it was because of the "Death Penalties". I think this was too harsh (commented it also in that way) - but this is only my personal opinion. My hope is, that all our support on it will not go up in smoke now...

Thank you very much in any way for all you do!!!
