End Namibia's Seal Cull (Hunt)

The Seal Hunt

Nangula@met.gov.na

I am shocked that the Namibian government is promoting the brutal, senseless slaughter of Cape fur seal pups and bulls. The pups are so young they are still nursing! I have seen the sickening images of this horrifying massacre on YouTube and have forwarded this information to everyone I know. These seals are dying due to starvation - a result of Namibia's reckless over-fishing. To massacre these seals, on top of causing their starvation is abominable. This population is now in jeopardy. South Africa stopped killing seals years ago. Why does Namibia remain in the Dark Ages? You have an obligation to protect the Cape fur seal species. I urge you to stop this slaughter at once. I will not travel to Namibia, nor will I purchase Namibian products until the Cape fur seal killing is banned forever.




Sincerely ,

[Your name]

Thanks for the posts, shocking and totally amoral what they are planning to do in Namibia and the market for seal products are fallen dramatically with even Russia not using them anymore (if my memory is correct).

And Germany is still holding Captain Paul Watson under house arrest - His arrest is so obvious corruption between the govts involved (Germany, Costa Rica and Japan), cos Sea Shepherd is the only organisation with the guts to stand up to these people. Oy vey! Steam coming out my ears now!  >:(

Animal Legal Defense Fund 

Do You Believe Animals Deserve Basic Legal Rights?

Deprived of legal protection, animals are defenseless against exploitation and abuse by humans. Through the Animal Bill of Rights, the Animal Legal Defense Fund is working to show Congress a groundswell of support for legislation that protects animals and recognizes that, like all sentient beings, animals are entitled to basic legal rights in our society.

More than a quarter-million Americans have already signed the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Animal Bill of Rights.

Sign on your support and speak out to your lawmakers today!

SIGN THE PETITION: >>

>> http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5154/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=5078  <<

A Petition to the United States Congress

I, the undersigned American citizen, believe that animals, like all sentient beings, are entitled to basic legal rights in our society. Deprived of legal protection, animals are defenseless against exploitation and abuse by humans. As no such rights now exist, I urge you to pass legislation in support of the following basic rights for animals:

The Right of animals to be free from exploitation, cruelty, neglect, and abuse.

The Right of laboratory animals not to be used in cruel or unnecessary experiments.

The Right of farm animals to an environment that satisfies their basic physical and psychological needs.

The Right of companion animals to a healthy diet, protective shelter, and adequate medical care.

The Right of wildlife to a natural habitat, ecologically sufficient to a normal existence and self-sustaining species population.

The Right of animals to have their interests represented in court and safeguarded by the law of the land.

Oh! I'll try to find the same petition on another site. There's Care2.
I just looked on the petition site, link from Care2 and the petition has been removed...Not sure why the goal was not met.
