Buzz Petition

If you’re an animal lover but have never signed a petition before, the time has come. President Trump has reversed his decision to ban the import of wild animal trophies and instead decided that he will allow the Fish and Wildlife Service to accept elephant and lion imports on a “case-by-case: basis.

What does this mean exactly? Well for starters, the few endangered elephants and lions we have left have no guarantee that an American hunter won’t kill them just for the sake of putting them on a wall.

Thankfully, a Care2 Petition has been launched targeting Congressman Raul Grijalva of Arizona to stop this dangerous and cruel plan in its tracks.

The Obama administration understood the crucial measures that needed to be put in place to protect these innocent animals from extinction. They made the importation of elephant trophies from Zambia and Zimbabwe illegal and made importing lion pelts and other trophies more difficult. Now, the ban is being reversed, opening the door for trophy hunters, like Trump’s sons, to bring dead lions and elephants into the country.

The FWS made the announcement stating it will withdraw its 2017 Endangered Species Act (ESA) findings for trophies of African elephants from Zimbabwe and Zambia, “effective immediately.” Additionally, they also stated that they would reverse other protections dating back to 1995 related to trophies of other African elephants, bontebok, and lions.

Not only is this reversal a slap in the face to the animals but also to the vast majority of Americans. With 82 percent of Americans in support of banning lion trophies and 83 percent in support of banning elephant trophies, there is no reason for the ban to even be questioned.

Your signature is of great importance to remind the administration that the people have already spoken and are not kosher with innocent wildlife being hunted down for the benefit of wealthy and heartless sports hunters.

If we don’t all lend our support to petitions like this one, elephants and lions WILL become yet another animal that only exists in the history books. Scientists believe that if nothing is done to stop the murder of African elephants, they will be extinct from the wild within the next 20 years! We need to act now to protect all elephants, not some on a “case-by-case” basis.

Sign the petition and tell the appropriate parties that the needless killing of Africa’s beloved wildlife is cruel, needless, and unacceptable. Take action today … before it’s too late.

SIGNED. Trump is hateful, detestable, evil, ...

I think "evil" is a word that means something and people are misusing it and over using it ... it is losing its punch.
He / Trump is an egotistical, self important, conceited, oblivous piece of shite.
Not a day goes by that I don\'t wonder what was on the minds of so many empty headed people who voted for him.
All we can hope for is for him to be controlled until he is out of the White House and we will be able to vote in a normal intelligent honest person to be the President of the United States.

Trump has proven himself to be evil, willing to sacrifice that which isn\'t his to appease political friends and family who recreate by killing. Sick people.
