Stop the trump administrations from lifting ban on extreme hunting in Alaska

Below are two petitions concerning the reinstatement of hunting in Alaska.

The trump administration is planning to roll back a 2015 regulation that bans aggressive hunting tactics in roughly 20 million acres of federal lands in Alaska including using dogs to hunt black bears, luring black and brown bears with bait, shooting bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens or killing caribou (reindeer) from motor boats.

All hunting is wrong, barbaric and totally unnecessary and only encourages callous violent behavior in those who participate in it

“Allowing the killing of bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens is barbaric and inhumane. The proposed regulations cast aside the very purpose of national parks to protect wildlife and wild places” Jamie Rappaport Clark,Defenders of Wildlife president and CEO.

National parks should protect wildlife not encourage the more backward sociopathic element of our society to use live animals as target practice for whatever perverted pleasure it gives them. The proposal is extreme as are the methods of hunting and needs to be stopped.

                                                    Please sign and share the following two petitions

Please read the following and sign the petition.

“In Alaska, you might soon be able to teach your children the wonder of the great outdoors by killing helpless bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens or mowing down swimming caribou from the comfort of your own motorboat.

The Trump administration wants to open the door to extreme hunting techniques of some of Alaska’s most iconic animals. The proposal is an attempt to rollback a 2015 Obama administration regulation that banned the same practices.

Besides the horrific caribou slaughtering methods that would be permitted, the rollback would also allow hunters to “lure brown and black bears with bait, hunt black bears and their cubs using artificial lights, […], and use dogs to hunt black bears.”

Please now sign the next petition

Take a Stand to Protect Alaska’s Bears and Wolves!

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has directed the National Park Service (NPS) to allow extreme hunting methods in Alaska’s national preserves, like baiting brown bears, killing black bear mothers and cubs in dens, and killing wolves and pups by trapping during denning season. This is shameful and outrageous.

  1. If humankind’s reckless and exploitative behavior towards other species and the environment wasn’t bad enough, we now have this madman in White House to contend with. The great irony is that the damage we are causing will eventually destroy us.

    • I couldn’t agree more, Trump makes a bad situation progressively worse and has setback what little progress has been made regarding our treatment towards animals, the environment, race relations and human rights in general, it appears to me that he is obsessed with undoing any progress in the right direction that Obama made. What worries me is that no one stops him, I would have thought he would not have lasted the first few months, let lone nearly two years. As for the 18 republicans who nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize …. well frankly I am lost for words, the world now seems an ever more crazy chaotic place and yes unless things change the damage we humans cause encouraged by Trump and his administration will be the end of us all.
