Justice for Pelican Found Dead and Bound in Wire

Target: Huey Hoss Mack, Sheriff of Baldwin County, Alabama

Goal: Justice for pelican found dead and bound against its will.

A pelican was found dead in Alabama with electrical tape wrapped around its beak and wire around one wing and its feet. An investigation is currently underway, but it has been suspected that the bird was bound for the purposes of a sale or trade. Such actions would be illegal, as pelicans are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

The circumstances behind the death of the bird are yet unknown, but it is a death that should not have happened. The pelican is currently on the Least Concern list regarding vulnerability and endangerment, but that does not mean it deserves any less protection than other species. The sale and trade of wildlife is illegal and unethical, and should it turn out those were the circumstances behind the bird’s death, the culprit or culprits must face justice.

This bird’s death need not be in vain. Sign this petition to demand the culprits be found and punished immediately, and that the laws be strengthened to protect future incidents like this.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Sheriff Mack,

The death of a pelican found wrapped in wire and electrical tape is currently under investigation. While the species as a whole is not endangered, they are currently under the protection of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Suspicions have been raised that the bird was bound for the purposes of sale or trade, which would violate the act.

The death of any wild animal by the hands of human beings is a senseless tragedy and the ultimate act of cruelty. This innocent bird did not need to die, especially for the sake of a practice that is illegal. Please ensure that the investigation uncovers the true culprits as soon as possible, and that the culprits face justice for their actions. Additionally, please strengthen your legal protection of pelicans to prevent such an incident from happening in the future.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. MUST FIND THIS PELICAN KILLER AND END IT IMMEDIATELY SO NO MORE NATURE WILL BE KILLED NOW.

  2. Thats right john people so full of greed to invade an animals home steal & smuggle with fragile body. This is beyond breaking the law i wish a more painful punishment be placed at least take their teeth n balls and give them to china. Get rid of these psychopaths

  3. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN IM SURE BUT DID SIGN THIS IF THIS WAS A PERSON OR CHILD HEY BE ASAP ON IT USA SUCKS

  4. Such a innocent creature… “I hold that the more helpless a creature is the more entitled it is to prtection by man from the cruelty of man.” M. Gandhi.

  5. Find and punish this evil person(s) to the max…..must show the world that there will be severe concequences if you torture,abuse or kill animals….

  6. ONE REASON THERES SO MUCH ANIMAL ABUSE,TORTURE,NEGLECT AND KILLING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD IS THAT THE LAWS ARE LAX AND THE CONCEQUENCES ARE NOTHING MORE THEN A SLAP ON THE WRIST..REAL PUNISHMENT IS NEEDED AND I DO BELIEVE ALL OF THE ABOVE WILL BE MUCH LESS….

    • That is one reason, but definitely not the biggest reason! The BIGGEST reason is the utter LACK of civility, moral progress, and compassion world wide!! It pains me EVERY DAY the suffering MILLIONS of animals, even sea life endure daily at the hands of heartless cowards, and what depresses me most is it will take WELL BEYOND our lifetime to change it, and it will never be stopped entirely, that is the sad truth. I just pray we can continue to improve things for as many precious animals as we possibly can, God Bless the animals, and God help the human race!!

  7. I demand justice for this poor pelican. Prosecute whoever did this to the full extent of the law. We cannot let people get away with animal cruelty.

    Do not let whatever dehumanized creep monster did this get away with it!

  9. Jackie Adams says:
