Demand UPS Stop Funding Animal Cruelty


Target: David P. Abney, CEO of UPS

Goal: Urge UPS to stop supporting law banning filming of animal cruelty.

Protecting animal abusers is now easier thanks to a corporate-funded law. The law, titled “ag gag,” makes filming illegal in industrial and corporate businesses. Corporations fund support for this law and UPS is one of its largest backers. Urge UPS to stop condoning animal cruelty.

The Iron Maiden Hog Farm is one of the most well known cases of animal cruelty. Conditions at the plant were horrific. The pigs were kept in cages too small for them to turn around and were denied veterinary care even when seriously ill. In early 2014, the Humane Society of the United States found more than 900 piglets dead at this industrial plant. After succumbing to a gastrointestinal disease, the piglets’ body parts were ground up and fed to their parents. This is considered an act of animal cruelty and is illegal. Thanks to undercover filming within the plant, the farm was shut down. If not for video evidence, than these animals would continue to suffer.

Thanks to “ag gag,” filming animal abuse is no longer legal. Whistleblowers have been arrested for filming within these locations and their evidence is inadmissible in court. If we cannot submit these films as evidence of animal cruelty, then the animals will continue to suffer under the protection of greedy corporations. Sign below and demand that UPS stop funding animal cruelty.


Dear Mr. Abney,

Animals are suffering and dying inside of slaughterhouses. They live in cramped cages, are denied essential veterinary care, and are forced to eat the body parts of other animals. The “ag gag” law, a product of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), is preventing whistleblowers from getting the video evidence they need to shut these plants down. We demand that you stop funding ALEC and its agenda to end undercover filming in industrial plants.

“Ag gag” bans citizens from filming industrial animal abuse without permission. Amy Meyer filmed a cow being tortured with a forklift in an Idaho slaughterhouse. The film was to be used as evidence in prosecuting the owners and stopping the suffering of the cows. Instead, Meyer was prosecuted under “ag gag” and her films could not lawfully be distributed.

It’s time to end animal cruelty. Join Google, Facebook, and Shell in boycotting ALEC and halt your funding of animal cruelty now.

    Why is it so hard to make the life of an animal comfortable before it makes the ultimate sacrifice.
    I would be scared of bad karma. There is something quite unsettling about a person that denies compassion to a living being that has done nothing to upset or offend just wanting to be treated fair.

  7. All those that want to hide behind a gag law should be gagged themselves till they can’t breath, rotten scum, burn in hell, you WILL!!!!!!

  8. Animals deserve & have every right to be treated with care & respect from the day they’re born — we are their stewards & caretakers — they must be protected at every turn — decent & respectful societies would NEVER allow unconscionable abuse of animals — SHAME ON YOU for supporting AG-GAG — this law has NO PLACE in a MORAL, FIRST-RATE and SOUND society!!! — Ask yourselves this: WHO benefits by abusing and torturing animals??? — WHO???? — STOP the horrific TORMENT once and for all.
