242. Harsher Sentences for Animal Killers

It is only recently that people are starting to be punished for killing animals, but at the moment these sentences are . . . lacking, they usually get a slap on the wrist and a fine.

Animals are living beings too and deserve as much respect as us humans. And think, if they kill animals they can kill children and adults alike.

244. Make Pit Bulls Legal In Addison, IL!

Please! Help me make it legal to own a pit bull in the City of Addison, IL!

Pit bulls are one of the greatest dogs you could ever want! They are sweet, smart, loving, gentle, and most of all, NOT human aggressive!

Don't punish the breed, punish the deed!

According to studies, you are more likely to get attacked by a Collie (Lassie dog) then by a pit bull.

Don't judge a dog by it's looks! After all, how would you like it if the government decided to ban YOUR dog? Wouldn't you do anything to fight a law like that? Please help me rid Addison of the Pit Bull ban.

Thank you so much!

Here is a copy of the Addison village ordinance reguarding pitbulls:

"Sec. 4-27. Keeping of Dangerous, Vicious, or Wild/Feral Animals or Fowl. [back to top]

No person, business association, or corporation may keep any dangerous or vicious animals, which include (a) any animal that poses a danger or hazard to humans; (b) any lion, tiger, leopard, ocelot, jaguar, cheetah, margay, mountain lion, Canada lynx, bobcat, jaguarundi, hyena or coyote, wolf or any part breed or full bred American Stafford terrier, bull terrier, American pit bull terrier, bull terrier or Staffordshire bull terrier (commonly known as a pit bull);(c) certain primates, (i.e. monkeys, chimpanzees, or gorillas); (d) reptiles, including constricting or poisonous snakes (such as pythons and boa constrictors), venomous snakes or lizards (such as cobras, rattlesnakes and water moccasins or Gila monsters), any other species of snake or lizard exceeding two feet in length, or reptiles in the alligator/crocodile family; (e) bears, horses/ponies, sheep, poisonous insects, wild pigs, hunting birds (i.e., falcons, hawks), goats, fox, skunks, raccoons, opossums; (f) spiders, tarantulas or other insects; or (g) any other type of animal or fowl (chickens, ducks, geese, guinea hens, pigeons or similar fowl), which is generally classified as an undomesticated animal or fowl (even though some individual members may be domesticated with proper training) or any other nontraditional domesticated animal or fowl in any place other than a properly maintained zoological park, circus, scientific or educational institution, research laboratory, veterinary hospital or animal refuge.

246. Stop Wearing Fur

Fur was hugely popular in the '70s and '80s, but it's back in a big way among the 18-25 year-old crowd. So you're probably not suprised that Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Kimberly Stewart, Jenifer lopez, Lisa Gastineau, Hilary Duff, Victoria Gotti, Tara Reid and Paris Hilton have picked up on the fur trend! Each year, more than 40 million animals are killed for their fur.

Fur-bearing animals include foxes, minks, rabbits, beavers and raccoons. To kill animals without damaging their fur, trappers will strangle, beat, or stomp them to death. Animals on fur farms are gassed, poisoned, electrocuted, or have their necks snapped. Ranch-raised animals live in cages about 2 feet square, with up to four animals per cage. There is no federal law that regulates the killing of animals raised for fur.

It can take up to 40 animals to make one fur coat. and

248. Stop the Cruelty: Stop Iams!

Iams and its manufacturers conduct cruel and unnecessary laboratory tests on animals, including locking animals in cages and deliberately forcing healthy animals to eat contaminated and potentially lethal food.

They've also done such things as cutting chunks of muscle from dogs' thighs, hanging mice by their hind legs in crude muscle-atrophy experiments, and inducing gingivitis in beagles by cutting and stitching their gums. These tests are cruel and unnecessary and are not required by any law.

It is time for Iams to join the 21st century and abandon all laboratory testing on animals. In addition, Iams' shameful purchase of animals from breeders in order to confine them to cages for a minimum of six years - when the company could rely on humane feeding tests conducted in homes and in veterinary offices using animals volunteered by their guardians - must be ended.

249. Stop Animal Poaching and Slaughtering!!!!

Poaching and Slaughtering Animals is WRONG and it's technically animal creulty!!! It's just NOT right, millions of animals are DYING every single day for their skin. Poachers act as if animal's lives are just some little specks in their way.

Many animals are being killed such as seals,horses,tigers,wolfs,dogs,cats, even birds and pigs etc. for their skin,feathers,organs, and fur. POACHING AND SLAUGHTERING IS PETHETIC!!!

250. Prosecute Ohio Animal Murderer Maureen McLaughlin

Maureen McLaughlin has admitted to drowning over 650 dogs, pups, cats and kittens since July of 2002. She has kept pieces of fur of each animal and labelled them so she can remember each one, like a serial killer would remember his victims.

These poor animals were put in a pet carrier and submerged into a trashcan of water. This is a most horrific death!!

251. Vets Now - poor out of hours Veterinary Service

**August 2011 - If you live in the west midlands area and want complain, contact me for a bbc researcher email address**

As more UK vets opt out of provide out of hours service, Vets Now are moving in to provide out of hours service. While the standard of care may be good, this is leading to VERY high costs for pet owner who need to use their services.

It may be a cost efficient option for the vet but the charges are leading to unnecessary delays in treatment as owners (and rescues) find it difficult to meet costs.

The movement for one surgery to provide care for a large geographical area also causes problems in getting the animals to the surgery.

252. Stop animal abuse now

Cruelty to animals has gone on long enough. Punishment should be stronger. Remember Jane Goodall.

Would you beat or starve your own cat or dog? Well people out there do, and some of the most likely think it's okay, mabey their parents did, maybe their best friends do it, maybe they do it for sheer entertainment.

Punishment for animal abuse should be stronger! A person who beats, or starves a human doesnt go to jail for a few years and then just be released, they are punished, so what if its not a human, most people in the US cant even find us on the world map, or know that polar bears live in the norther hemisphere, not with the penguins in the southern. If animals could talk, I bet they could know that, humans take their rights for granted, while animals are killed for sport, just trying to live, animals don't kill for joy, some people think,"well, the lions kill the baby lions sometimes" only if they arent their child/cub, lion males, in order to keep their family in charge, they have to get rid of other males cubs.

This is an issue that I cant stay quiet on, I may be this shy kid in school, but not when animals are being harmed, after all, its their world too. Remember, my hero, and idol, Jane Goodall.

253. End the Slaughter of Wild Horses

It seems the slaughter of horses that once roamed free has begun.

Before shipping, California horses are sent to slaughter houses in Texas and as far away as Canada. The horses are placed into over-crowded holding pens, standing in disease-infested muck.
Often sick, they are crammed into double-decked cattle trucks. Without sufficient room to hold their heads upright, they travel for 36 hours through summer heat or brutal winter cold without stopping for rest, food or water.

At the slaughter house, the horse is electrically prodded into the "kill box" to be repeatedly bludgeoned in the skull by a dead-bolt gun with a four-inch nail. Alive, and often conscious, the horse is then shackled by a rear leg, hoisted into the air, its throat slit and body dismembered.

No horse is spared this ordeal.

254. End Hunting of Animals

The hunting of animals is supported in many states in America, and not just in America, in the whole world.

All donations to will be used to help Animals Australia highlight the plight of this intelligent species.

Animals Australia firmly believes that the vast majority of Australians, once fully aware of the suffering of pigs in factory farms, will vote for change through the choices that they make. Informing them is crucial.

Our current advertisements and billboards which have assisted us to launch the campaign have been funded through the donations of caring Australians.

However, this is only the beginning - we need to reach every Australian.

In a recent edition of the British “Guardian Weekly” internationally renowned naturalist Lyall Watson commented about pigs, " I know of no other animals that are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open-mouthed enthusiasm". will work towards ensuring that these animals are provided with the world that they are meant to live in – not the one devoid of hope and sunshine that they currently endure in Australia.

I saw a picture of someone’s pet animal that they have killed and I was distraught. Many animals and pets are getting killed every year for either food or just for fun.

I hear people talking about wanting to hurt their own pets and wildlife that don't need to be disturbed. We don't think they should get away with this any longer. In America they can arrest them if they see any thing wrong with the animal. In Australia the animals just get taken away. How is that stopping people from hurting these poor animals?

The owners/idiots are getting away with it and getting more to hurt or even kill.

257. Dog Control UK

It is reported that more than 350 children were admited to Alder Hey hospital between Oct '05-Oct 06 as victims of attacks by dogs. Many of these injuries required surgery.

More recently we have read reports of children being killed by dogs in the UK.

Strict controls need to be put in place to protect the public from dangerous animals - the UK public need to put pressure on the government to introduce laws to protect us before another child is killed.

259. Ban Bullfighting

Up until recently, I have been like soo many other people in the world. I say I care about animals, and i even became vegitarian, but when i saw the torture these bulls and calfs go through, I realised that I was not doing enough to help.

What I'd been saying was only words, and I had taken no actions. after learning more about what was actually being done to these poor innocent creatures, I am taking a step and beginning to make a difference. To do this i need your help!

These bulls are chased in the middle of screaming people until they run out of breath, and fall, or get hurt and fall. Then the 'bullfighter' stabs spear into the animals body and even though the animal is helpless, and crying out in pain, they carry on, all in the name of SPORT?

Take a look on the internet at the cruelty of this game, and I am sure if you are a decent person, you will sign this and help me to help them! I beg you, something must be done. This is not natural, nor neccesary!

260. Abolition of Horse Slaughter

Three slaughter houses are hidden within the United States of America. Three hell buildings that steal the lives of thousands of innocent animals.

Transported in cramped cattle trucks or tractor trailors, mares, stallions, and foals are taken to the slaughter daily. Malnurished, starving, dieing, the animals are packed together in pens awaiting their death. For many the conditions in which they are kept get to them before the slaughter does and are dead before they hit the box.

The process begins with a 'stunning'. Stunning as it is, this does not mean the emotion. 'Stunning' of a horse is when a metal rod is shot directly through their foreheads into their skulls and deep within the brain. This action obviously paralyzes the animal. They are then thrown down a shoot into a 'kill box' where they are taken out and lifted upside down to be hung by their hind legs.

Their throats are slashed and left to bleed out to death. From there, their hides are sliced off for leather like a cow. Hooves are ground into hoof glue and the meat can also me made into glue, or dog food, or even transported to other parts of the world where eating horse meat is a delicacy.

But if you ask me it's disgusting and repulsive and needs to be put to an end.

262. Lift The Ban On The Pit Bull Terrier

Its proven throughout the entire world that any breed of dog large or small can be aggresive toward's other animals and humans, But it is only the Pit Bull Terrier that is targeted and brought up in the media !

Why should the whole breed be punished and not just the dog that commited the offence ?

I belive that any dog that harm's another dog or a human should be punished and the owner of that dog should be brought to court and also punished by the law !

265. Global Ban on Hunting

Whatever animal that is being hunted brings them 1 step closer to extinction.

Animals are hunted for their food, fur and other things. A type of fox is hunted because it is believed to have healing remidies.

The tigers are hunted for their fur.
Some animals are captured so people can sell them as pets.

Whatever the reason is this is animal cruelty.

266. Animal Crultey is not acceptable

There have been too many cases where animal abuse had been done and the accused did not get proper punishment for the crime of hurting an animal.

There should be harder sentences for convicted accused. If there is no hard punishment then people do not learn, these people that are cruel to animals grow up to be murders. This is a proven fact and is not ok in our society!

People should not turn their head or pretend that they did not hear that this is going on. Please you are one person and you can make a difference.

270. Animal Rights Awareness

I would like to make the rights of animals so aware that the government of any country would finally see how important and influential the lives of the animals in the community are to the world.

Animals cannot defend themselves. They do not have a choice in whether or not they live or die. Just because humans may be bigger and more in control, doesn't mean we have to treat them so poorly and hurt them and abuse them! Animals have always been fair and loving companions to the human race and this is how we thank them.

Drop off cages. Drop off cages where we put animals to die. Whatever did they do to deserve this kind of treatment? Sure, I will say that sometimes animals need to be taken care of for threatening or hurting a few people, but that's no excuse. These animals thrown into these cages and boxes are abused and literally tortured until they die. They aren't given any food, water, or love of any kind. How would you like it if someone did this to you?

Dolphin slaughtering. I have always had a love for the ocean animals ever since I was a little kid, and it hasn't change in the least to this day. I've only grown even more concerned for their safety and lives. Dolphins are being senselessly killed for various disgusting and inhumane reasons. They are so intelligent! Why kill them? I don't understand. Dolphins have never harmed the human race, only helped. I know all of you have heard of the many many cases of people lost at sea. Who was it that saved them? Huh? Who? That's right. Dolphins stuck around until help came for the human lost. They even protect humans from sharks when necessary. And we kill them.

The tigers! The tigers have been shrunk in numbers by thousands! And it's so obviously true! And yet, we do nothing. Tigers are so beautiful, so unique. They are being killed for "Medical Reasons", whatever the hell gave them the idea that killing to better humans is a good thing? It isn't even helping the humans! What on earth is going on? Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the world?

There are so many other issues that affect the world. How could no one see that whatever we do in the world, affects the entire world as a whole? Whatever we do to the animals and the environment, only bounces back to smack us in the face.

I'm sorry if I've wasted your time by reading this, but I feel it's an issue that's very important and needs some attention. You have no idea how happy it would make me if you all signed this. I would be extatic if one person signed one petition! Copy and paste it into another bulletin! Do something! Everyone needs to be aware of all this and more!

Thank you for listening!
