Stop Trump From Allowing Bear Cubs to be Slaughtered and Reindeer to be Shot from Motorboats

Target: David Bernhardt, United States Secretary of the Interior

Goal: Cancel new rule that allows hunters to lure and kill bear cubs and other wildlife.

The Trump administration has formally announced new regulations which allow hunters to attack and slaughter black bear, coyote, and wolf cubs in their dens, as well as caribou while swimming in rivers and lakes. Overturning an Obama-era regulation intended to protect predators and maintain balanced ecosystems, this is the latest in a series of moves by the current administration to open up natural heritage to destruction and exploitation for profit. Hunters will now be able to approach bear, coyote, and wolf dens, using flashing lights and food to lure cubs out and kill them. They will also be able to shoot swimming caribou from motorboats, a grotesque practice previously forbidden due to its heinous cruelty.

This change in rules benefits no one in the long term, with declining predator populations and overburdened parklands certain to be the result as other animal populations spin out of control without predation. Sign the petition below to demand the Secretary of the Interior undo this vicious new rule and protect the wildlife that are his responsibility by law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Bernhardt,

The cancellation of Obama-era protections for Alaska’s predatory animals will result in wrecked ecosystems and drastic pressure on threatened and endangered animals. Our national parks were established to protect wildlife for generations to come, and this new rule is a betrayal of that trust.

This action is a dereliction of the duty entrusted to you by the people of the United States and an attack on our already-struggling natural world. I demand that you undo this rule that allows hunters to murder defenseless animals for no reason other than pleasure or profit.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop taking away what God made! You have no right! This isn’t about you! These animals that God made were meant to be Free!! And the same as oil barges in the ocean (marine life) and tree’s. Please stop destroying…and start rebuilding what we have lost. Thank You.

  5. I have no idea who made this new rule or law. It ludicrous. Why would anyone running for re-election do something this stunningly stupid.
    I understand there are Republican voters who are turning away from Trump. They are finally seeing the light. I hope.
    I do hope with my whole heart that the animals are made safe from killers very soon.

  6. Wait a minute thought he announce any one being cruel to animals of any kind was supposed to be prosecuted to the max.
