Stop Trophy Hunters From Ravaging the Prairies

Target: Jason Nixon, Minister of Environment and Parks, Alberta, Canada

Goal: Put an end to slaughtering Alberta’s wildlife and mounting their heads on a wall.

Trophy hunting is a shameful attempt to show dominance over another species. Killing an animal is not something to be proud of, and it is certainly not something to flaunt. Trophy hunting is estimated as a $1 billion global industry, and much of this happens in rural communities across North America. Sign this petition to protect our local fauna from being hunted and displayed for pleasure.

Trophy hunting is not an act of desperation or the need to sustain oneself, but a cold, calculated pursuit with the intention to kill for pleasure. Graphically displaying their preserved bodies allows hunters to conceal their ignominy of killing a majestic creature, just as they cowardly concealed themselves behind their rifle scopes. Many trophy hunters are incapable of hunting on their own, and display their incompetence by paying thousands of dollars to be led by a guide.

All animals are impacted, from the great predators’ pelt thrown on the floor to a deer’s head mounted on the wall. Most animals sought for trophies are the mature, large and impressive creatures, and while our ancient ancestors received glory for killing them, modern humanity has no place for people who linger in this base mentality. While many trophy hunters assert their veneration for nature’s animals, this “sport” only teaches disrespect and we should not let the next generation be exposed to such cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Nixon,

Rural Alberta is a major destination for the trophy hunting industry. From inspiring predators to timid stags, no animal is safe from being senselessly killed and having their remains explicitly displayed. The trophy hunting industry has a global economic impact of $1 billion annually, yet more than 80% of Canadians are against this activity.

Trophy hunting has no societal benefit. It does not feed people, as many carcasses are left to rot once the desired “prizes” are removed. It does not regulate animal populations nor protect agriculture operations from wildlife impact. It simply allows people to release their base instincts in the name of sport, and teaches the next generation that nature is a beast to dominate.

This yearly slaughter is cruel and unnecessary, and it is shameful that a progressive government in the 21st century supports an industry based on the senseless killing of an animal for pleasure and profit. This must stop.

I urge you to put an end to hunting of Alberta’s wildlife for trophies, for personal and export purposes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. These individuals are cowardly and weak they need to boost up their low esteem and low testosterone by killing these beautiful animals allowing them bragging rights with their moronic friends… they are insecure in their manhood and like the school yard bully they choose to go after the beautiful animal who cannot defend itself against their gunfire. These pathetic men are too stupid to realise that the truly strong are always the kindest. May KARMA CATCH UP WITH THEM SOON !!
