Catch Poachers Who Gruesomely Decapitated Five Threatened Sea Lions

Target: Doug Forsdick, Chief Conservation Officer for British Columbia, Canada

Goal: Investigate the brutal and unnatural decapitation of five sea lions on a Vancouver seashore.

Five Steller sea lions were discovered on Vancouver’s pebbly beaches, their heads cleanly cut from their bodies. The species is listed as “special concern” under the Canadian Species at Risk Act and any deliberate harm done to them by a human is illegal. Demand a full investigation into the deaths of these majestic animals.

“I was completely and utterly devastated, shocked. I couldn’t believe that I was even looking at something of that nature,” stated Deborah Short, a British Columbia resident who discovered the mutilated bodies of five sea lions on Vancouver Island. The heads had been cleanly severed, suggesting that the act was done by a human as opposed to a killer whale or shark.

This is not the first time that sea lions have turned up headless in the area. Poachers have been known to decapitate the animals to obtain their skulls, which can be worth $1,000 on the black market. If poaching is responsible for these particular deaths, then those responsible must face consequences. Sign below and demand a full investigation into this worrisome discovery.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Forsdick,

Five Steller sea lion carcasses have turned up on Vancouver Island, their heads cleanly cut from their bodies. No nonhuman predator could achieve such a feat. This suggests that there is a person at large who is deliberately killing and decapitating these marine animals, potentially for profit due to the high value of their skulls on the black market, and something must be done to stop them.

Steller sea lions are listed as “special concern” under the Canadian Species at Risk Act. Any human who poses them harm must face legal consequences. I demand that you investigate the deaths of these animals and assist in any legal case made against those deemed responsible.

Sincerely

[Your Name Here]

    Evil, heartless bastards need to be found and exterminated. That’s what I call justice.

  2. It’s time that for Canada to have stricter laws protecting their animals. This was a vile act, and the last moments of those animals is unbearable to think.

  3. This is totally sickening and unconscionable and disgusting. These poor Sea Lions. . . This is horrible and unacceptable. The person or people who did this unthinkable act of violence and cruelty must be found and punished severely for the pain, suffering and TRAUMA they caused these poor Seals. These petitions have no HEARTS and no SOULS.

    All animals matter

  5. This is what needs to to be done to these pos that are responsible for this!!!!

  6. Jane Todaro says:

    These excruciatingly cruel, barbaric, disgusting acts are totally unacceptable, and the perpetrators must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is the matter with some people???????!!!!!!!!!!

  7. People today are sick, sick, sick! These need to be put to death because they will never be truly cured!

  8. Find the sick freak that did this and decapitate!!!!!

  9. It’s all about money for the perpetrators – they could not care less about the sea lions. The global trade in animal parts results in many species on the brink of extinction. We need strong laws with stiff sentences and Canada could lead the way.

  10. Rachel Davies says:

    Canada has fallen by the way in its animal justice laws. It must impose harsh penalties on abusers and expend more time and energy in locating perpetrators. This is a heinous crime and someone must know something about it. Poachers are the scum of the earth and need a strong deterrent. Public hanging would be appropriate in my opinion.

  11. This is why I hate Canadas Bastards. So many years I fight against the cruel seal massacre.I hope these worthless human scum will die in long horrible ways. Justice for the animals.

  12. The people that did this to these poor innocent creatures does not deserve to walk on this earth. I hope they rot in hell’s.

  13. When are these sick and evil cowards going to pay?!

  14. Those MF’s need to be executed sick bastards. Karma come quickly?

  15. + RIP sea lions
    Death penalty for bastard killers,cowards. Find these Pos!
    Justice!

  16. Shirley Lemieux says:

    These terrorists decapitating sea lions should be hunted down and brought to Justice. Such a grotesque act of animal slaughter. Sick bastards.

  17. OMG, RIP POOR SEAL LIONS. WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH HUMANS THAT THEY ARE SUCH EVIL, VILE, CRUEL MONSTERS? WE THE PUBLIC DEMAND THAT YOU CATCH THOSE INVOLVED AND SEVERELY PUNISH THEM AND WE ARE WATCHING TO MAKE SURE THAT HAPPENS. JAIL THEM FOR 2-3 YEARS, FINE THEM A HUGE AMOUNT AND BAN THEM FROM FISHING, HUNTING OR ANYTHING ELSE TO DO WITH ANIMALS.

  18. POS!!! Find whoever did this to these sea lions and get rid of this POS from the earth!!!

  19. This is barbaric. These people need found ASAP. Those useless people need time in prison . How anybody could do something so horrible , I can not comprehend. Canada needs to do better . Put huge fines and severe punishment on these pos . These sea lions did not deserve this .
