Good morning my dear friends! PLEASE take a stand for the beautiful wolves of America by signing the following petitions:1. http://signon.org/sign/protect-americas-wolves?source=s.icn.em.cr&r_by=2102317&mailing_id=7166

The proposed plan supports the elimination of wolves where they overlap with ranchers, the machine gunning of wolves, the continued sterilization of wolves, and lax hunting and trapping regulations, with no bag limits, no specific tag requirements and year-round killing in some regions.

EXAMPLE LETTER: Dear friends, I have constructed a simple letter using and quoting some of the information in the e-mail that was sent to me by Robert Goldman. You are welcome to use it as an example letter for your comments against the draft management plan.

The letter is the following:

The current draft management plan for the Grey Wolf in British Columbia certainly does NOT cover the needs of a better BC for wolves, wildlife and people. It is a horrendous proposal lacking conservation, ecology, and ethics. Based on fear and mismanagement, it will lead our ecosystems to total impoverishment.

Top predators are among the most outstanding achievements of wilderness, evolving over hundreds of centuries; conservation of wolves and the wild habitat they thrive upon has even been linked to stopping climate change.
Wolves and other iconic predators MUST be protected in an ethical and sustainable way and management plans need to take this into account.
To improve the draft management plan, the following suggestions MUST therefore be considered:1. Extend the deadline for public input to January 30.2. NO helicopter killing or sterilization of wolves.3. NO leghold traps, snares or baiting.

4. Return to former species licence, quotas, bag limits, restricted seasons, and mandatory reporting of kills for hunting wolves.

5. A decision and statement that lethal predator control is NOT an option for the recovery of mountain caribou and a stop to the Quesnell Highland wolf sterilization and removal project.

6. A provincial management plan for wolves that considers the social stability of packs as well as population size to ensure the long term conservation of the species in its most natural form.

7. A commitment to reduce wolf-livestock-human conflicts through prevention, and provision of educational initiatives and incentives for responsible husbandry practices.

8. Protect large tracts of habitat for wolves and their prey. Ensure that protected areas are large enough to support multiple wolf families with no hunting/trapping allowed.

Thank you for your help!!

Circus Bosses On Trial For Cruelty To Elephant By Worker

Comments Off on Circus Bosses On Trial For Cruelty To Elephant By Worker

“The story of  Anne the elephant, is very close to my heart! When the original news broke, with the video of her being beaten, I posted it onto Care 2; along with a petition & sent many letters to Lord Henley & the Government; including my MP. I was so pleased, when all the petitions put together made sure  she was able to leave that place, imagine being shackled to the floor unable to move but a step forward or back!

“The MF that beat Anne got wind of the news in advance, somebody grassed that they police were coming for him, which is why he did a runner. Who knows, perhaps the Roberts told him to go, thinking if he left the case would be over?  just hope that justice is served, & Anne did not suffer in vain; although I would have preferred the actual person seen beating Anne, to also be on trial!”

The trial of circus owners Bobby and Moira Roberts is due to go ahead on Monday 19 November, following video evidence filmed by ADI showing a worker of the Bobby RobertsSuper Circus kicking and beating their elephant, Anne, at their winter quarters last year.

The worker caught on film left the country immediately.

Mr and Mrs Roberts are being jointly charged with a series of offences under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, to which they have pleaded not guilty:

1. Causing the elephant to suffer unnecessarily, by requiring the elephant to be chained to the ground at all times, contrary to section 4(1) of the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

2. Failing to take reasonable steps to prevent their employee from causing unnecessary suffering to the elephant, by repeatedly beating it, contrary to section 4(2) of the same Act.

3. Failing to take reasonable steps to ensure that the needs of the elephant were met to the extent required by good practice, contrary to section 9 of the same Act.

This is a test case, the first trial of circus owners and their responsibilities under the ‘duty of care’ detailed in the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

Anne is a 59 year old female elephant wild caught in Sri Lanka and bought by the Bobby Roberts’ Super Circus in the 1950s. Anne was transferred to a safari park with the owners’ consent following the release of the ADI video in 2011.

Here are a few of letters I sent regards Anne & animals in general in the circus. You can tell by my MP’s response to one letter;  I was implying that no animal should be forced to perform for human entertainment. Click on each page to read:-
