Target: Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian Natural Resources and Ecology Ministry
Goal: Prosecute Russian officials who shot and poached rare Siberian Musk deer
Russian officials have been caught killing and poaching the rare Siberian Musk deer. These deer are in danger of extinction and protected by the country. The four Russian officials were said to be from the Russian Natural Resources and Ecology Ministry (RNREM). Instead of working to protect and save these animals, these people are doing the complete opposite. Prosecute these errant officials and protect Russia’s wildlife.
This type of killing has the ability to wipe out the entire species, which is already in danger of becoming extinct. Poachers especially affect this particular deer species because the male Siberian Musk deer secretes a substance called ‘musk’ which has a scent that draws in female deer. Unfortunately, this smell also attracts humans, which is why there is a huge problem of hunting and poaching of these specific deer.
The poachers need to be put under further investigation to figure out why they did this to the deer. Law officials in Siberia apprehended five men with rifles who had the carcasses of the deer in their possession. According to Russian law any type of hunt requires a hunting license, which none of these men had. With that said, these men were also members of the RNREM, which is geared toward protecting these rare animals. They should have known that these Siberian Musk deer are protected under Russian law.
Please sign this petition to prosecute the Russian environment officials and fire them for poaching the Siberian Musk deer.
Dear Vladimir Putin and the Russian Natural Resources and Ecology Ministry,
Four men that worked for the Russian Natural Resources and Ecology Ministry has been found killing and poaching the Siberian Musk deer population, a species that is on the brink of extinction. It is sad to know that officials who have worked so closely with the animals and who should be aware of their extinction are still able to kill them to make a small profit. These men need to be put in jail to pay for what they have done.
The deer population does not need poachers disguised as natural resources officials to be anywhere near these animals. Please protect what ever is left of the deer population so that an incident like this does not happen again.
