Justice for Elephants Poisoned with Cyanide

elephants-by-werner-bayer

Target: Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe

Goal: Find and charge under the full extent of the law whoever is responsible for poisoning elephants with cyanide in Zimbabwe.

Twenty-two elephants were found dead after being poisoned by cyanide in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Twenty-six other poisoned elephants were found dead in the same area earlier this month.

The elephants in some parts of Africa face the risk of extinction, while in other regions it’s not quite so bad but the population is still falling. Part of these threats to the population is the demand for ivory, which is rising rapidly in Asia.

This is the same national park where the beloved Cecil the lion was murdered by an American hunter, causing many to question the park’s abilities to protect its wildlife. With such a great risk posed to the elephant population and with so many being killed with poison something must be done to protect these elephants and bring their murderers to justice. Urge officials to do whatever it takes to find and charge under the full extent of the law whoever is responsible for poisoning these innocent elephants with cyanide.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Mugabe,

Nearly 50 elephants have been found dead after being poisoned in the same area of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe where Cecil the lion was also murdered. The lives of innocent wildlife are at great risk and something must be done. We as humans must step in to protect elephants from poachers and others who are trying to poison them and steal their tusks for the ivory trade.

Elephants are at the risk of extinction if you do not step in and do something to save them. I urge you to find and charge under the full extent of the law whoever is responsible for poisoning these innocent elephants with cyanide.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Where the cyanide is coming from? catch from the root and all those who are involved from top to bottom will be exposed. THEN GIVE THEM SAME TREATMENT. WE DO NOT WANT THEM ON THIS PLANET THE WAY THEY ARE DOING WITH ANIMALS.

    • That cyanide is coming from the goldmines there and free available. It would be best if ALL the poachers are being poisened in the same way.

  2. must get justice for these poisoned elephants now. kill a elephant you lose your right to live now.

  3. This horror, this cruelty to elephants is beyond the pale — how can anyone allow these magnificent animals to undergo such torturous suffering — this is beyond unconscionable, immoral & callous criminality — such acts, such crimes should NEVER be accepted by you — NEVER! — such acts, such crimes should NEVER be accepted by any respectable & dignified society — put a permanent stop to these monster-killers — arrest these monster-murderers, throw them in jail & throw away the key — they’re a danger to the WHOLE world, humans & animals alike.
