Buzz Petition

Since when is the life of another living being less important than say … golf? Apparently, this is how managers at The Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California think.

According to a petition on Care2, photos have surfaced of a man with a rifle taking aim and shooting innocent animals with a pellet gun. Allegedly, the Club contracted a man to kill gophers, squirrels, and other animals around the golf course with no permit.

Not only is this an inhumane way to deal with rodent problems it is also illegal in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes to discharge a weapon at all. This method shows a lack of problem-solving skills and a down right disregard for life. The Golf Club clearly has the money and resources to seek out a more humane way to deal with the rodent problem. Some of these alternatives involve the use of live traps, fences, smells, and sounds.

Live traps allow gophers to be captured unharmed and released back into the wild. Another effective way to deter gophers and other small rodents are the use non-toxic unappealing repellents, which can be distributed all over the property using a hose. Gophers are also sensitive to ground vibrations, so investing in special devices that emit these types of annoyances may be another effective solution.

Whether a golf course or a garden, gophers and other rodents serve as an important part of the ecosystem and simply killing them off is not the proper way to handle the problem. After all, when one is killed, another one will move in. Prevention and implementing the tips above will help keep them away and your landscape looking its best. To sign the petition and pass these solutions on to the owner and manager of the Trump National Golf Course click here.

The stupidity and ignorance ehe continue to display never cease to amaze me. I sign the petitions to him but feel they will go nowhere. He is a self centered boor who cares for no one except himself.What would surprise me if he did something good or right.He may the The President but he is not MY President.

Donald Trump, owner of the Trump National Golf Club; Lili Amini, general manager:

WHAT MAKES YOU TWO THINK THAT YOU TWO ARE MORE "INTELLIGENT" THAN GOPHERS, SQUIRRELS AND OTHER ANIMALS???????????????????? HIRING SOMEONE TO KILL WILDLIFE DOES NOT MAKE YOU MORE INTELLIGENT. ACTUALLY, IT PROVES THAT YOU ARE LACKING SOMETHING SOMEWHERE.

Thanks to this WORLDWIDE PETITION, we demand that Donald Trump, owner of the Trump National Golf Club and Lili Amini, general manager STOP shooting gophers and other critters.

People at large: BOYCOTT this GREEDY and BLOODY golf court.
