Let’s stop the slaughtering of poor marine animals before there’s none left to save

By:

Genesis Acevedo New York, NY

 

The issue that is being address in this petition is the mass slaughtering of dolphins and small whales in the cove of Japan (Taiji) during hunting season. These animals are chased down into the harbor for fishermen can slaughter or capture these poor animals. If they do not slaughter these dolphins in that moment then they starve them until they are ready to be killed. In addition, if they do not kill them at all then the result is just capturing them in order to sell them off to marine parks and make a profit. Fishermen focus on selecting dolphins and selling them into captivity. About 111 dolphins are held captive and dead/released dolphins do not count as part of the Japan Fisheries Agency Quotas. In result, these innocent marine animals are not being protected under these poor regulations. Its very important because these poor animals are suffering in the hands of selfish people.
They do not deserve any type of abuse for our entertainment nor to make a profit. I am petitioning the Japanese government more specially the cove in Taij where the dolphin slaughter takes place and the Fisheries Agency. It is wrong to slaughter these poor animals for our own selfish reasons. They just use these poor animals for profit and to sell into multiple marine parks in Japan and overseas. They chase them down into the cove and brutally slaughter these animals for their own selfish gain. Not only are they hurting these animals but they are also destroying our environment by eliminating the amount of marine animals in the ocean by a mass margin.
I am specifically asking the Japanese government and the Fisheries Agency to set more quotas and regulations in order to stop the slaughtering and selling of these marine animals. Their quotas are not being regulated nor are they protecting these poor innocent animals. Their quotas is just a big joke when it comes to the survival and protection for these many small whales and dolphins. I am asking them to ban and stop seasonal hunting completely. Furthermore, I am asking them to stop using these animals for profit and just let them live their lives in peace. #Leavethedolphinsalone #nomorebloodocean #letthedolphinslive #survival

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters.

By: Caitlin Halliday Kaysville, UT

Nobody wants to put a pet to sleep. The process is heartbreaking, even in the best and most loving of circumstances. At least we can take solace in how fast and peaceful euthanasia by injection (EBI) can be. If injected with the proper drugs, an animal will lose consciousness within 3-5 seconds. This is why the vast majority of shelters use EBI. It is by far the most humane way to end an animal’s life.

But Utah is one of just seven states that continue to use gas chambers for this purpose, for inexplicable reasons.Unlike with EBI, animals euthanized by gas chamber can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to die, and they are often still conscious, terrified and distressed. Multiple animals are often placed in these metal boxes at once, and they strike at each other out of fear.

The Humane Society of the U.S. and every other major animal welfare group have condemned the use of these gas chambers, calling them cruel, inhumane, torturous, and archaic. There are fewer than three dozen U.S. shelters still employing them, and Utah has seven of them. Sadly, a bill that would have banned them just failed in the Utah House of Representatives.

We must reach out to our representatives and let them know that we will not stand for inhumane animal euthanasia. Cruel gas chambers have no place in our state’s shelters, and we must demand that they shut them down now.

EBI is as cost-effective, if not more so, than the gas chamber, so the financial argument that some representatives made holds no water. Some pointed to worker safety as a reason to keep using gas chambers — no cases have ever been reported of a shelter worker dying due to an accidental needle stick with EBI; however, there have been human injuries, deaths and explosions due to gas chamber use.

The lawmakers who argued against this bill did not do their homework. There is no reason to continue the use of this horrifying equipment, and we owe it to Utah’s pets to continue to fight on their behalf.

All animals deserve the kindness and dignity of EBI in their last moments of life. Please sign this petition telling the Utah representatives responsible for the failure of this bill that they did not represent the people with their vote.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Utah State House
  • Utah State Senate
