There's something which I totally did (not) know which astounded me - and not in a good way.
35,000 elephants are still being slaughtered annually, by poachers, for their tusks.
I heard this fact in a video presentation within Prince William's documentary made for TV which was mainly about saving wildlife.
An African born man videotaped his struggles to protect elephants and rhinos. he said 35,000 elephants are killed in Africa, just for their tusks... I thought someone had got this under control. This year Prince William is ending his long military service. He began the Annual Tusk Awards, presenting recognition and a prize to the best protector of wildlife.

Help Sick Calves Sent to Slaughter

An HSUS undercover investigation at Catelli Bros. -- a calf slaughter plant in Shrewsbury, New Jersey -- found downed calves enduring horrible mistreatment and others inhumanely slaughtered. Downed calves -- those too injured, sick, or weak to rise to their feet -- were shocked, kicked, lifted by their tails and ears, and dragged by chains. Our documentation points to serious violations of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. The USDA needs to strengthen regulations to specify that downed calves must be immediately euthanized rather than suffer abuses to force them to rise and walk to their slaughter.

When we presented our complaint and video to the USDA, the agency acted swiftly to suspend operations at the plant.

TAKE ACTION
 Please send a message to Alfred V. Almanza, Administrator of USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Services, thanking him for the agency’s swift action and asking the USDA to set standards for downed calves.

This one came to me via email.  I'm signing this one!

 https://www.change.org/petitions/burlington-coat-factory-go-fur-free-to-help-animals?utm_source=action_alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=51999&alert_id=jyJhrgFwCJ_cylxGjREcg


Change.org 

Mary - There's a new petition taking off on Change.org, and we think you might be interested in signing it: 


 Burlington Coat Factory: Go fur-free to help animals 
 
 By Julie OConnor   
 Tenafly, New Jersey   

Sign Julie's Petition

Every year millions of animals are killed for the fur industry. One of the companies to profit from this misery is Burlington Coat Factory, a company based right here in New Jersey where I live!

Depending on the animal, the method of slaughter may include being stomped on, trapped, shot, electrocuted, or hung upside down and sliced open. All fur (coats, collars, cuffs, trim on hoods) comes from the same cruelly abused animals.

Burlington Coat Factory was caught years ago selling fur from dogs! They stopped that thankfully. But they still sell fur from other animals. What's the difference between wearing a dog, fox, rabbit, or any other animal? And Burlington Coat Factory even sells fur from China where there are no real laws about how animals are raised, transported, or killed.

So many companies like JCPenney, Express, Zappos, The Gap, H&M, Wet Seal, Forever 21, The North Face, Nike, and many more are fur-free. Why can't Burlington Coat Factory go fur-free?

Please sign my petition if you care about animals and want Burlington Coat Factory to stop selling fur.

Hmm, not sure quite what happened with the link that it then didn't bring up the one I mentioned.  Oh well, maybe the time expired on it or something.  But there are lots of good ones to chose from for sure!  ;D

Dori Edwards, Global Animal

NORTH CAROLINA — According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife services, the Red Wolf is one of the most endangered species in the world. In a recent statement by the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, “fewer than 100 red wolves remain in the wild.”

First recognized as endangered in 1967, the species’ rapid decrease was caused by predator control programs and the human degradation of their natural habitat.

Red wolves are characterized by red and brown hued fur and are often confused with their relative the coyote. The canine is currently only found in the wild in North Carolina.

Unfortunately, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recently approved night hunting of coyotes within the area that is the only environment red wolves inhabit.

As a result of the recent ruling, red wolves are at risk of being killed due to their similarities in appearance to the targeted coyote. Since the ordinance, two red wolves have already been shot by mistaken hunters.

The cruel ruling also obviously endangers the undeserving coyote. The government legalization of night hunting provides hunters not only with an unfair advantage but includes the right to an unlimited body count. Change.org states that “human encroachment is the coyotes biggest threat.”

The DWAF is sponsoring a petition against this mindless murder. Help these innocent canines from being unjustifiably executed and sign the petition to tell the NCWRC to not “let anymore wolves die! Stop all coyote hunting—daytime or nighttime—within the red wolf recovery area!”

Urge Delta Airlines to Stop Transporting Endangered Animal Hunting Trophies

South African Airways and Emirates SkyCargo recently announced that they would ban the transport of big game hunting trophies. Animal activists like Sue L. are now working to get Delta Airlines to follow suit.
Will you sign Sue's petition urging Delta Airlines to ban the transport of hunting trophies?
SIGN IT:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/847/140/972/tell-delta-airlines-to-stop-shipping-endangered-animal-hunting-trophies/?z00m=24567115&redirectID=1711054132

Despite pressure from animal groups and activists, Delta continues to state that it will accept hunting trophies as long as customers produce the required documentation. They need to hear from you that this is not good enough! Delta needs to take it a step further and prohibit the transport of trophies on their flights.
Delta has previously shown that it can be progressive when it comes to animal welfare. The airline has banned the transport of primates used in research. Why should banning endangered species trophies be any different? A hunting trophy ban by the airline would deal a serious blow to an industry that profits from killing endangered African wildlife.
Sign Sue's petition urging Delta to embrace their progressive side and join other major airlines by banning the transport of hunting trophies.
Thank you for your compassion,

Senseless Killing of Zimbabwe's "Oldest Elephant" Calls for Ban on Big-Game Hunting - NOW

overview petition 

A German national has been accused of killing one of the largest elephants ever seen in Zimbabwe. But the hunt organizer is defending the hunter and refusing to disclose his name.

The elephant had reportedly never been seen before in the area where he was shot - near the border of Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park. Chairman of the Zimbabwe conservation task force Johnny Rodrigues told the Guardian that “Such old, large elephants” are “very, very rare” and “almost never sighted.”

The Telegraph, which provides a photo of the hunter with his victim, says the hunter paid a lot to obtain the correct license for a 21-day hunt that allowed killing elephants and other big game. Nevertheless, Rodriquez told the Guardian, the hunter “should have used his common sense” and reported the elephant to authorities so it could be collared and protected.

While the man who arranged the hunt called it good for the country and local economy, others say this rare elephant would have been worth far more alive than dead.

But this should not be about money. Not only is the senseless killing of any elephant seen as a repulsive crime by many, conservationists are warning that if it continues, elephants could be extinct by the end of the decade.

Botswana and Kenya have banned big-game hunting altogether. Sign this petition to ask Zimbabwe to do the same and put an end to the senseless killing of these majestic creatures.
