Daily Voice : Stop Logging Malayan Tiger Rainforest
« Reply #328 on: May 31, 2014, 07:45:22 PM »
Stop Logging Malayan Tiger Rainforest

The Malayan Tiger is a sub-species of tiger that are found only on the Malay Peninsula and in the southern tip of Thailand. Until 2004, they were classified as the Indochinese tiger until DNA testing  showed it to be a separate subspecies.There are around 500 of this sub-species; the other 5 sub-species make up the world's last remaining 3,200 wild tigers.Belum-Temengor, the largest continuous forest complex in Penissular Malaysia, is tiger habitat, but Temengor faces considerable deforestation from logging. With the recent construction of the East-West Highway, new towns and industrial areas have developed, and the Highway provides more access for the extraction of timber from the jungles. Additionally, there are plans to convert natural forest into plantation forests along the East-West Highway.We ask Malaysia to stop logging in the Temengor Rainforest and save the Malayan Tiger from extinction by providing protected, unfragmented habitat. The Belum-Temengor Forest Complex is one of the last refuges for amazing, yet highly threatened wildlife, such as the Malayan tiger, Asian elephant and Sunda pangolin.SOURCE:http://www.mns.my/article.php?aid=751Dr. Lian Kok FeiMinistry of Natural Resources and EnvironmentLevel 6, Wisma Sumber Asli, No. 25, Persiaran Perdana, Precint 4Putrajaya - 62574MalaysiaTel: + 603 8886 1126Fax: 011 603 8888 4473EMail: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

Daily Voice : Support the TEAPA Act to Ban Wild Animals From U.S. Circuses!

Support the TEAPA Act to Ban Wild Animals From U.S. Circuses!

On April 30th, Congressman Jim Moran introduced a bill called the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act (TEAPA) that would end the use of exotic and wild animals in U.S. travelling circuses.
Numerous videos and photos show how circus animals are abused and neglected behind the scenes. Trainers use painful tools like bullhooks and stun guns to force them to comply, and the animals are typically kept in cramped, uncomfortable conditions with no medical care for most of the time they aren't performing.
30 other countries have passed similar legislation, and it is time for the United States to get with the times. Please sign the petition to support the TEAPA act and end the use and abuse of wild animals in U.S. circuses!

Justice for Nero: 7-week-old puppy set on fire; Find and Convict His Abuser

Please sign and share petition to spread the word about this horrible act on Nero, the 7-week old puppy so that the perpetrator can be caught and punished for his act of animal cruelty.
Nero is a 7-week old mixed breed of puppy that was found by a camp worker in Saskatchewan in Calgary. He is now under the care of the Calgary-based Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society in Canada.  It appears that someone intentionally set this tiny young puppy on fire and left him to die. The puppy was doused with some type of flammable agent similar to tar and set on fire.  How cruel and heartless can anyone be???????  I don’t get it!!!!
This poor animal is now fighting for his life in good care. He is suffering from severe burns to his entire face and neck. He is being treated with medications and antibiotics because there is concern about pain and infection.  When found, Nero was rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic in Calgary and underwent surgery to clean out all wounds. It appears that Nero may need eye surgery and already has damage to both ears due to the fire. 
He is still in critical condition because of the damage brought on by from the fire. However, this little guy is a fighter and already playing with other dogs in his foster home.  So many people have heard his story and want to give him a home but the focus in the area of Calgary to see if anyone saw anything that can lead to the capture of the abuser.  There is an active investigation underway to identify and track down the abusers. Let’s fight for justice for Nero. 
Please sign and share petition to spread the word about this horrible act on Nero, the 7-week old puppy so that the perpetrator can be caught and punished for his act of animal cruelty.

Daily Voice : Keep Oil Exploration Out of Virunga National Park
« Reply #331 on: June 03, 2014, 07:27:08 PM »
Keep Oil Exploration Out of Virunga National Park

Virunga National Park is Africa's oldest national park. It could soon become Africa's newest oil field.

British oil company Soco International PLC plans to explore for oil inside the park, even though the park is protected under Democratic Republic of Congo law. More than 27,000 people fish in Lake Edward and it provides drinking water to 50,000 people. But thousands more benefit from locally sourced fish, renewable energy and other park-related activities.

Oil development in the park would threaten local communities that rely on the park's natural resources and jeopardize the region's potential for long-term income from sustainable development.

Tell Soco and government leaders that Virunga is too important to open up for oil exploration.

Dog Bites Children after Adoption! Shelter Must Ensure Dog Safety Before Adoptions!!

Please sign and share this petition nationwide to alert everyone about this and other shelters that adopt dogs out that often times bite their new owners. This family adopted a dog that ended up attacking two of the children, outraging the family that this animal with aggressive tendencies was allowed to be adopted out. Shelters like the Queens Animal Rescue needs to ensure the dogs are highly trained and sociable, passing all aggressive tests before it leaves their facility. Don't just adopt these animals out if there is any possibility the dog could hurt its new owners and others!!
There are so many wonderful organizations that give their time in the care and well-being of animals such as the Queens animal-rescue organization and Second Chance Rescue; without them, so many animals would not have a second chance at life. However, this particular shelter recently adopted out a dog to a family without rehabilitating it fully and advising the new owners of its menacing history. As a result, the dog became aggressive towards members in its new home. A report from the Brooklyn Animal Control Center advised against placing this dog with kids but that warning was dismissed when Melo was placed in a home with two children that he eventually attacked.
Melo became enraged and bit Jade, 9, on the leg while she sat on a swing in the family’s back yard. Her courageous brother, Justin, 13, nearly lost his nose after he pried Melo’s jaws from her flesh. The children had to be rushed by ambulance to a hospital, where Justin needed five stitches to his face and Jade’s gnawed leg was patched up. Obviously the dog had to be put down!
This dog was definitely not ready to be adopted and no one wants to see an animal lose its life in such a situation. He should not have been placed, at least at this time and certainly not with children. The dog went through an assessment evaluation by a volunteer who also advised against placing him with children. She stated that he comes from an abandonment situation and “When approached in his kennel, Melo freezes in the back of the kennel, hard stares and lip curls, low growls, and then charges the front of the kennel while hard barking. It seemed Melo was finally acclimated and was letting his guard down — revealing the sweet, playful affectionate boy I knew was always there!”
Reports are that Melo's troubling past was related to the new owners but why would they place such an animal in a home with children when it was clearly stated not to do so?? Shelters need to do more to ensure that the animals they adopt out are rehabilitated enough to join society and a new family with complete confidence and safety. If this were done efficiently, maybe Melo would have been properly socialized, placed in an appropriate home without children and he would still be alive today.
Before adopting out any dog, despite over-crowdedness, the animal must be socialized enough to guarantee a happy, healthy pet! If not ready, do not adopt the pet out until it is! Please sign and share this petition nationwide to alert everyone about this and other shelters that adopt dogs out that often times bite their new owners. This family adopted a dog that ended up attacking two of the children, outraging the family that this animal with aggressive tendencies was allowed to be adopted out. Shelters like the Queens Animal Rescue needs to ensure the dogs are highly trained and sociable, passing all aggressive tests before it leaves their facility. Don't just adopt these animals out if there is any possibility the dog could hurt its new owners and others!!

Daily Voice : Georgia: Strike Down Your "Guns Everywhere" Law!
« Reply #333 on: June 05, 2014, 08:18:56 PM »
Georgia: Strike Down Your "Guns Everywhere" Law!

Last Wednesday, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a bill into law that would allow those with a concealed carry permit to take guns into bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports. The bill, called the Safe Carry Protection Act, will go into effect on July 1st.
Concealed carry supporters have a point that responsible, trained gun owners can protect themselves and save lives by protecting against a rogue shooter. Even so, this bill goes too far in the other direction and leaves too many loose ends. For one thing, guns and alcohol are a bad mix, and an otherwise responsible gun owner could become dangerous under the influence. For another thing, allowing guns in airports would gum up security lines and create opportunity for terrorists to intercept weapons. 
The implications of this new law need to be considered more carefully to create a better balance between personal protection and public safety. Please sign the petition to urge Georgia to reconsider their "Guns Everywhere" law!

Daily Voice : Protect Wildlife from an Agent Orange Herbicide!
« Reply #334 on: June 07, 2014, 01:00:15 AM »
Protect Wildlife from an Agent Orange Herbicide!

Herbicides contain chemical mixtures designed to kill plants, but a newly proposed mixture could also hurt wildlife, habitat and people.

The Dow Chemical Company wants to combine the active chemical already found in Roundup, glyphosate, with 2,4-D — a major component of the chemical weapon Agent Orange, used in the Vietnam War. Wildlife habitat, plants and agricultural crops that have not been genetically engineered to withstand this dangerous cocktail will be harmed.

And the EPA is currently planning to approve this dangerous combination, which will ramp up the use of herbicides.

The use of 2,4-D will further endanger threatened species like California red-legged frogs, Alameda whipsnakes and several types of salmon by destroying plants where these species live. Herbicides also put increasing pressure on monarch butterflies — whose populations have dropped more than 80 percent — while a plant they depend on, milkweed, has declined over 50 percent because of herbicides.

And people are also at risk: 2,4-D has been associated with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Parkinson's disease and an increased risk of birth abnormalities.

Act now and tell the EPA to reject this alarming new herbicide mix and protect people, wildlife and the places they live.

Daily Voice : Create Bill To Prevent "Hot Car" Animal Fatalities!
« Reply #335 on: June 08, 2014, 01:00:23 AM »
Create Bill To Prevent "Hot Car" Animal Fatalities!

Too many animals, particularly dogs, have died unnecessary and cruel deaths due to owner negligence and/or ignorance. Currently, only 14 states have laws regarding this crime.
I am petitioning my House representative, Lou Barletta (R - PA) to work to create a bill or amendment to the current Animal Welfare Act to ensure protection of these animals on a federal level, so that this cannot continue.
Please sign my petition urging our congressional representatives to take a stand for animals and end "hot car" deaths once and for all!
