Rare Yaak Montana Female Grizzly Poached! Tell Montana & U.S. Government to Prosecute
Tell the U.S. Fish Wildlife Service and State of Montana to Prosecute and Increase the Penalty for Killing an Endangered Grizzly Bear. Tell Congress to Pass the Tribal Heritage and Grizzly Bear Protection Act. In late November 2020, an adult female grizzly bear was brutally killed in the northwest Montana’s Yaak Valley. The killer or killers shot the bear, partially skinned and cut off her paws, before dumping the body in a driveway. An estimated 24 grizzlies remain in the Yaak Valley, and after this brutal poaching, they are more in need of your help than ever. The poached grizzly was one of possibly only 3-5 remaining females. These last two dozen bears are stubborn survivors on the U.S.-Canada border in a unique ecosystem where nothing has gone extinct since the end of the last Ice Age. Now climate change and poaching are the greatest threat to the grizzly. At present, it is unknown if she had cubs. If she did, they too would surely have perished. If they were a family of four, that would represent roughly 15% of the valley’s population in one day, and possibly an unbelievable one-third of the valley’s reproductive females. “Often called “the walking dead,” the tiny population of grizzly bears in northwest Montana’s Yaak Valley are the most endangered in the state,” stated Montana grizzly bear advocate, author, and activist Doug Peacock for Save The Yellowstone Grizzly. “Yaak grizzlies are already beset by an out-of-compliance high-volume through-hiker trail in their fragile habitat, a proposed mine beneath the Cabinet Mountains, and a Kootenai National Forest that seeks to implement clearcutting across four contiguous project areas totaling almost 250,000 acres without any Environmental Impact Statement—well, you get the picture—Yaak grizzlies need our help,” added Yaak Valley Forest Council Board Chair, author, and activist Rick Bass. “Please help us turn this around. There were an estimated 25 grizzlies remaining in the Yaak. Now that estimate is 24,” concluded author and activist Terry Tempest Williams of Save The Yellowstone Grizzly “There is such villainy in this act that I can hardly express my rage and sadness,” continued Montana-based author, environmental historian, and conservationist Betsy Gaines Quammen The state of Montana is only offering a paltry $1000 reward for information leading to the conviction of her killer or killers—hardly enough to solicit tips, or to act as a deterrent to other, future poachers. We are asking the federal government and the State of Montana to: • Investigate and prosecute the Yaak poaching to the full extent of the law • Increase the penalty for killing an endangered grizzly bear to $100,000 • Pass the Tribal Heritage and Grizzly Bear Protection Act with additional protections for the Yaak grizzly bear population. Please sign our petition to be delivered to the new Secretary of the Interior, Congress, the State of Montana, as well as the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, demanding investigation, and greater protection for grizzlies on our public lands. Thank you from all of us at Save the Yellowstone Grizzly and the Yaak Valley Forest Council. Let's not let this mother grizzly die in vain.Read the press release (PDF) Addendum: To offset the abysmal state reward amount of $1,000, Save The Yellowstone Grizzly and the Yaak Valley Forest Council have set up a supplemental reward fund. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to be added to the state reward fund.

Petition to Head of Olivet Nazarene University, college students
Dogs in Dorms
This is a problem that is not only affecting my schooling but is also affecting a lot of other's schooling. Going to college is hard enough as it is. You have to pack up and leave town going to whatever college you go to. It can be hard sometimes to leave family behind. However, sometimes the hardest thing to do is leave behind pets. If you have grown up with a pet, you have become close to it and could form a special bond. That special bond makes it even harder when you have to leave them when you go to college, all because dorms won't let you have a dog. I think colleges need to change that because you also need to think. Dogs a lot of the time bring joy to people's life. It is proven that when you are in a happier state of mind, you tend to do better in school. You are a lot more friendly, you study more, and your test scores go up higher. So letting college students bring their pets to school with them would actually be quite beneficial to not just the students, but also the colleges. So I would like to change the rules in colleges that say students can't bring pets with them to college unless they have a disability. I believe that anyone should be able to bring a pet to college if they so wish to.
Petition to New York City Council
Legalize bengal cats in NYC
Bengal cats are legal in practically all states of the US. In New York State they are regulated to allow F5 bengals. Which means the bengal cat is at least five generations separated from it wild ancestor the Asian leopard cat. However in New York City they are banned indefinitely. I would like to extend the same F5 regulation to New York City. The bengal cat is a domesticated cat much like the average house cat. The ban on wild cats and all hybrids all began many years ago when a man kept a tiger in his nyc apartment. Then the law was made to ban all wild cats such as lions, tigers etc. in response to the man who kept a tiger for 3 years in his nyc apartment and thus consequently even extended it to hybrids. However this law is not even strictly enforced and there are thousands of bengal cat pet owners all across New York City as well as pet shops that sell them . This law is clearly outdated and should be adjusted to fit our current atmosphere. There have been no reported incidents across the states that allow bengals nor any the city of New York. Bengal cats are in no way anymore harmless than your average house cat. I believe our city’s health code should be updated to reflect the F5 bengal as a domesticated house cat and lift the ban on bengal cats. This is a highly popular breed praised for its intelligence as well as playful and affectionate demeanor. Many bengals can even play fetch! They are highly sought and loved amongst pet owners. Please sign the petition so we can changed this outdated law.

Save The Sharks
My goal with this petition is to create awareness about sharks and hopefully create better laws to protect them. More than 100 million sharks are being killed every year for their fins. They have their fins cut off, and are thrown back into the ocean to die slowly. Sharks are needed in the world because they serve a massive part in our ecosystem. They balance out the oceans and remove the weak and the sick. They ensure species diversity. Their disappearance can set off a chain reaction throughout the ocean and even effect the people who are on the shore. Many shark species are being threatened with extinction because they don't have the chance to reproduce quick enough with the amount that are being killed each year. Sharks are “functionally extinct” in one of five of the worlds coral reefs. This finning of sharks will affect the environment, and the food chain massively. Keep our sharks safe and in the water where they belong. Every signature helps and is beneficial to helping these magnificent creatures repopulate and get off of the endangered list. It is estimated that by 2040 sharks will be completely extinct. Lets help reverse this, and change the world one step at a time. Save the sharks.

Please Boycott Under Armour for promoting Trophy Hunting
Picture: Under Armour sponsored "Athlete" and Trophy Killer Lee Lakosky. Trophy Hunting is Animal Cruelty. Under Armour sponsors numerous Trophy-hunters like Kendall Jones, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Cameron Hanes, and many others, to kill wild animals for sport on different continents in order to promote the sale of Under Armour Hunting Gear. Under Armour trophy hunters flaunt their numerous kills ostentatiously on "UNDER ARMOUR HUNT" social media pages as well as their personal websites. To Patrik Frisk, CEO and Kevin Plank, Founder of Under Armour: "Sirs, the inspired spirit of innovation that built your company is contrary to the sport hunting programs you support and sponsor. Watching individuals butcher unsuspecting wild animals for the thrill of killing, flaunting pictures of themselves with their kills on social media is something that haunts any conscientious human being. Your aim to inspire through sport is noble and innovative. Including killing sentinent beings into that aim is base, grotesque and inhumane. Please reconsider and cancel your involvement in hunting. It literally destroys the reputation of your entire company."

Stop dog chaining in Florida!
Stop chaining dogs in Florida! On March 9, 2012, in Jacksonville, Florida, seventeen-month-old Dylan Andres was attacked and killed by a chained (tethered) dog. Dylan joined three other Florida children who were also killed by chained dogs. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 27% of fatal attacks happened when the dogs were tethered. Concerned citizens along with a growing list of Florida legislators will be introducing a bill in 2021 that will ban unattended dog tethering in Florida. The law is aptly named, "Dylan's Law." Dogs are social animals, yet thousands of dogs in Florida live their entire lives isolated at the end of a tether. According to the Humane Society of the United States, tethered dogs become lonely, frustrated, and anxious. Often, they are don't have adequate food, water, and shelter. Since tethered dogs cannot flee danger, they become defensive and territorial. When a human, or an animal enters their territory, they attack. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, continuous confinement of dogs by a tether is inhumane. A tether can become tangled on the dog’s shelter or other objects, potentially causing injury or death. Tethered dogs are vulnerable to an attack from stray dogs, wild animals, or hateful people. Female dogs are more likely to become pregnant. As of October 2020, nineteen Florida counties and dozens of Florida cities and towns have passed attended-tethering-only laws. These laws allow tethering, but only if the dog’s caretaker is outside with the dog and it is always visible. Attended-tethering-only laws affect 65% of Florida’s population. Sign this petition and add a comment to let Florida Senators know that you want to them to pass Dylan’s Law and let’s take dogs off chains in Florida forever.

Conservation of Chimpanzee Penguins
Ronald Reagan ate my moms house today he drank the World History Amsco book and became the wardrobe. Furthermore, spunchbop needed some Obama care so he asked Carl Macqueen for extra apple juice. However, on the other hand, precisely the lamp floating on the ceiling can't be it so we really don't understand the whole purpose of Madagascar movie. Wood Wilson started the movement of Red meat but ended in 5608 BCE. Not only that but the Mayans before has sacrificed a bus from the Ceiling of the Netherlands. Later one, Shrek had teleported through the black whole landed in the Atlantic Ocean. For more information, we can conclude that the silk roads had expanded and that negative affected the frog population, causing the Black Plague across the New president of Alaska "beetle juice".- Gregory So yea pls save the Chimpanzee penguins, they deserve more love then you have had. The Chimpanzee Penguin is a subspecies of penguin that unlike all other species of penguin, lives in tropical areas. These penguins are critically endangered and only about 20 of them live in the wild, which is why not many know that they exist. They eat plant matter, fruitanoids, and insects. They are wonderful chimpanzees, and wonderful penguins. They live solitary lives like both of these animals, but they give live birth, making them mammals. They are native to the island of Toobaloo, and are hunted for their furs. Palm oil is also a major issue for this species since it involves the destruction of their environment for palm oil, which is found in 50% of consumer products such as shampoo, soap, and foods. Although they live solitary lives, they are very friendly to humans and pose no threat. It's scientific name is Eruditio aemulativa-p. Whenever you see someone please remember to inform them about these wonderful creatures and help us spark change throughout the world!
