Amazon: Stop Selling Products Used to Poach and Kill Bears

Target: Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon

Goal: Put an end to the selling of bear poaching trap accessories.

A bear advocacy group is asking Amazon to help protect bears by not selling poaching accessories. If the company makes this move it can help save the animals from illegal trapping. Amazon has removed bear traps, steel-jaw traps, and snares from its site but still reportedly sells snare attractants and accessories. These are especially harmful because the dangerous products can last for decades.

Amazon has apparently been the largest supplier of traps that have been used to poach bears for the last ten years. According to the founder of the advocacy group Help Asheville Bears, an Amazon representative said they were looking into the matter last year, but trap accessories are still being sold.

Sign below and demand that Amazon stop selling products used to trap bears and donate money to rehabs where the bears that have been affected now live.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear CEO Jassy,

Alongside the Help Asheville Bears advocacy group, we demand you put a stop to the selling of bear trap accessories. Amazon has been the leading seller of such harmful products for the last decade. Traps and accessories have caused many injuries to countless animals. Although Amazon has taken down bear traps, steel-jaw traps, and snares, the remaining products apparently being sold are just as harmful and maybe even more so. They can have a lasting impact for nearly a decade.

You can help save countless populations of black bears from illegal trapping. We demand Amazon take the next step and remove all bear poaching accessories from your site.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
