Stop Drowning, Suffocating, and Burning Animals to Death

Target: Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States

Goal: Demand the U.S. ban the dangerous and often fatal export of live farm animals.

Animals bound for slaughter are transported by whatever means farmers deem necessary. This includes driving animals in hot, cramped vehicles for multiple days, hauling animals in overhead planes, or crowding them onto cargo ships. Livestock are often denied access to food and water during these lengthy trips, and are completely stressed out throughout the trips’ duration. Animals may die from dehydration, hunger, heat stroke, or from being trampled by one another. In addition, each transit method has a series of dangers, and live transport often ends in catastrophe. For example, more than 15,000 sheep drowned earlier this year after a live export ship sank in Sudan. More recently, the capsizing of a cattle vessel resulted in the premature death of 6,000 cattle and 41 crew members.

Several countries have recognized the dangers associated with live exports and the unnecessary trauma it causes to farm animals. New Zealand and India have both recently made important changes to their own legislation, banning live animal export out of their countries. The passing of this law is a milestone for animal welfare, and will save the lives of tens of thousands of livestock.

Sign this petition to demand the U.S. enact similar legislation and ban the inhumane export of live animals within our own borders.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

The transport of animals to slaughter destinations is a particularly grueling journey. Farm animals are crammed into hot vessels–whether this be a motor vehicle, plane, or cargo ship of sorts–for upwards of weeks, usually without any access to food, water, or veterinary care. Millions of animals die of dehydration, heat stroke, hunger, or being trampled before ever even reaching a slaughterhouse. Others, still, die due to transit catastrophes. For example, more than 15,000 sheep drowned earlier this year after a live export ship sank in Sudan while, more recently, the capsizing of a cattle vessel resulted in the premature death of 6,000 cattle and 41 crew members.

India and New Zealand have recently joined several other countries in banning the unnecessary export of live animals. We are now asking you, President Biden, to follow suit and protect thousands of farm animals from easily preventable deaths.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. We need to ban all animals transported on vessels, motor cargo, etc. These animals are suffering with NO FOOD OR WATER, CRAMMED, and HEAT.

    My God people have a heart for these poor animals 💙

  2. Biden doesn’t care about EITHER non-human animals OR human animals.

  3. If you’re opposed to transporting animals because it’s cruel, you must therefore be vegan and stop KILLING animals.

    The only humane is veganism, anything else is just virtue signaling to pretend you care about animals, defining their required suffering to make yourself feel better causing their suffering.

    Caring means not harming, and killing/eating/using/testing/wearing ALL harms.

  10. STOP ALL FORMS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY AND TORTURING ABUSE TOWARDS ALL ANIMALS IMMEDIATELY!!! BAN ALL ANIMALS SUFFERING IN ALL ASPECTS OF THEIR LIVES BY STUPID, ABUSIVE IDIOTS (PEOPLE) IMMEDIATELY!!!!!

  11. Janette+Lands says:

    No excuse for animal abuse. Eating a sentient being????? How do you equate that? How do you live with the knowledge that in effect you are putting a living being through a terrifying ordeal and ultimately death?

  12. GO VEGAN!
    Everything else is HYPOCRISY.
    Animals are intelligent and complex sentient beings, NOT commodities.

  13. Joseph Kenosky says:

    Anyone that is ok with this ought to be euthanized.

  14. Jolene Krise says:

    I Can’t stand to be called a human when it’s compared to how the monsters that do these horrendous acts against animals are also referred to. The greed and the heartlessness makes my heart hurt and my mind constantly thinking and worrying about how it’s a fact that somewhere someone is torturing an innocent animal either for reasons of greed, sick self enjoyment, or simply thinking they are the one thing in charge and the number one species that ihas power and domination over everything’s else on this earth

  15. Julia Edinger says:

    STOP THIS CRUEL TREATMENT,,,,ASAP!!!

  16. STOP STOP THIS!!!!! ASAP!!!!!~! EVIL TREATMENT OF THESE ANIMALS SHOULD BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Shirley Lemieux says:

    In supporting this petition,
    I do believe that helping to protect thousands of farm animals is needed from these easily preventable deaths.

  18. Joshua Wright says:

    Please stop animal abuse.

  19. STOP the abuse and cruelty to Animals — DO IT for the Animals — DO IT for our Planet — DO IT for Humanity — better yet, GO VEGAN — GO VEGAN
