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]

  1. I was not aware of this and I have an Amazon account. If enough customers call in about this, it will be fixed I’m sure.

  2. Ashley Swinney says:

    Amazon has an obligation to report sellers who supply animal torture devices. Everyday those items stay on Amazon’s platform they should be heavily fined.

    Dear CEO Jassy,
    WHO ARE WE TO KILL LIVING THINGS THAT WERE CREATED BY GOD TO POPULATE THE EARTH? HOW ABOUT ‘DISPOSING’ OF ALL THOSE COWARD ‘SICKOS’ MURDERING DEFENSELESS LIVING CREATURES FOR PLEASURE TO SATISFY THEIR LOW INSTINCTS?

    DON’T YOU THINK THAT AMAZON MAKES ENOUGH PROFITS TO BE SELLING ANIMAL TORTURE DEVICES AND THUS CONTRIBUTE TO THIS MERCILESS KILLING?

  4. Teresa Zamalloa says:

    I totally agree with you –
    Amazon’s profits are billionaires and by not selling those harmful and mortal artifacts that would not greatly influence their profits.

  5. Kathy Miller says:

    Absolutely no reason to kill beautiful animals. Stop now!!!

  6. I refuse to buy anything from Amazon. Jeff BOZO just uses the money against us with his leftist ideology

  7. I use Amazon all thetime but not now. I am shocked about this.

  8. Attack the problems not the entire company.For people who can’t get out to shop find the convience and the prices very helpful especially with the restrictions due to Covid.

  9. MICHAEL BAVARO says:

    DOES THAT MORON OWNER OF AMAZON JEFF BAZOS NEED THE MONEY THAT BAD?

  10. SHAME ON YOU AMAZON!!! STOP KILLING THESE ANIMALS!!!!

  11. Shame on you Amazon. Amazon will lose customers if this isn’t stopped, I will be one of them.

  12. I didn’t realize Amazon did this. It needs to stop at once or Amazon will go down in status as far as I and many other customers are concerned.

  13. The people that condone and participate in, this type of “sport” are pathetic! Right up there with those who corral sealife for bloodbaths and “hunt” fenced in animals. Really? Who the hell raised you? who the hell taught you about decency, empathy, respect for life?

  14. Andrew Wells says:

    Disgusting and immoral!!

  15. AMAZON NEEDS TO STOP SELLING ITEMS TO KILL BEARS AND ALL OTHER ANIMALS TOO IMMEDIATELY!!! WE ALL SHOULD STOP BUYING FROM AMAZON!!!

  16. Amazon or other retailers should not sell products that cause any animal pain or suffering.

  17. I was already considering dropping Amazon Prime but this will compel me to go further.

  18. Stop this it’s is hurting aminals.

  19. Stop helping poachers!!!!

  20. Shirley Lemieux says:

    Selling poaching accessories is irresponsible and is not sportsman like. These accessories causes great suffering and harm to an animal. This is not hunting. It is cruelty. My advice to Amazon or anyone is to not sell these accessories.
