900,000 Voices Demand Continued Wolf Protections

Wow. We just delivered nearly a million comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service opposing Trump’s plan to end federal protections for almost all gray wolves in the lower 48.

This is the most comments the feds have ever received on an Endangered Species Act issue in the law’s 45-year history. They include 35,000 handwritten notes delivered in person to the Interior Department in Washington, D.C. The Center for Biological Diversity says thank you to everyone who submitted a comment, shared a social post about our wolf campaigns, canvassed their neighborhood for comments, or in any other way raised their voice for the voiceless.

And we’re not done yet. At the last minute the Interior Department extended its comment deadline to July 15, so we and our allies have a new goal: 1.5 million voices raised for wolves.

Learn how you can help in our upcoming call. And consider supporting our campaign to save wolves with a donation to our Predator Defense Fund.

 

 

Switzerland: the wild animal killer

 

A great article by the Swiss community IG Wild beim Wild”, which specializes in the legal aspects of wildlife conservation:

“Virtually everything that is cruel, unnecessary and heartless is sponsored by the Hunting Association Switzerland.

The Swiss Hunting Association primarily cultivates irreverence and a culture of violence – exactly the opposite, according to which a cultured person should strive in our society.

Hobby hunters even threaten a civil war, if, for example, the fox hunt should be stopped.

 

Members of the Association Hunt Switzerland have relations with representatives of the power in general. Furthermore, they use force or other means of intimidation (fear, lies, propaganda, etc.) to influence politics, the media, public administration, the judiciary or the economy.

 

These people of Hunt Switzerland hunt, terrorize, injure and kill defenseless animals – often just for fun or boredom. However, hunters can not tolerate hunting criticism.

As a normal citizen you lose the composure when you experience the endless mischief on the part of hobby hunters. And you can not really blame anyone for that.
In addition, you personally do not benefit from it, but we just do animal welfare, and give those a voice that have none and are suffering.

Because of these hobby hunters, wild animals in Switzerland suffer.

Armenia: ANIMAL EXPLOITATION: SURRENDER THREE SUFFERING BEARS CAGED AT A RESTAURANT.

ANIMAL EXPLOITATION: SURRENDER THREE SUFFERING BEARS CAGED AT A RESTAURANT

 

Free the Bears – Petition link –

https://www.change.org/p/surrender-three-caged-bears?recruiter=350017660&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_initial&recruited_by_id=79e3ddd0-32ee-11e5-9cdd-efd8ee0adfea&share_bandit_exp=initial-15501876-en-GB&share_bandit_var=v1

 

These three caged bears are used by the owner of Ashtaraki Dzor restaurant in Armenia to attract visitors and tourists to the venue.

In spite of complaints from local animal lovers, he refuses to let us rescue them . He is fighting hard to hold on to the bears who have been robbed of their dignity, their freedom and their ability to express all natural wild bear behaviour. They should be roaming in the Armenian mountains, not locked in a cage so that visitors to the restaurant can laugh and poke fun at them.

Our petition aims to raise awareness of the miserable plight of these poor animals and put pressure on the owner to surrender them. Your signature really will make a difference.

Please help us set these helpless bears free. They are suffering mentally and physically from their imprisonment. The sight of their misery is heart-breaking. But once we have the go-ahead to rescue them, we can move them to our purpose-built rescue centre where they will be treated with compassion and respect. The expert team at our centre has a wealth of experience in the rehabilitation of rescued bears and will give them all the treatment and care they need to recover from their years in captivity.

These three beautiful bears are relying on the kindness of animal lovers like you to stand up and fight for them. Please don’t let them down.

Please sign the petition urging the owner of Ashtaraki Dzor Restaurant to surrender the bears to International Animal Rescue.

Thank you

International Animal Rescue launched its Great Bear Rescue campaign in November 2017 and has since rescued 23 caged bears from lives of mind-numbing boredom and frustration behind bars. Some of these bears will be candidates for reintroduction into protected areas of the Armenian countryside, while those that can no longer fend for themselves will be given lifelong care.

Support our Great Bear Rescue campaign here.
