Care2.com have some incredible petitions and I’ve just had an email about this one

I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I read it.  In fact, I had to read it several times for the words to sink in.

Care2.com have a petition called End Cruel Canned Exotic Animal Hunts in Texas

And the petition has a particular example of what is happening at the Ox Ranch, outside San Antonio in Texas.

This has been going on for some time.  “Sportsmen” (I am presuming that women do it too) pay tens of thousands of dollars for the chance to kill exotic animals.  Animals such as the African bongo antelope, black wildebeest, and sitatunga antelope.  They  are tracked across a fenced-in area and killed.

As well as these “hunts” being unfair and cruel, they reinforce the dangerous myth that sport hunting has an important role to play in conservation.  This idea has come under increased scrutiny in recent years.

Care2 is calling on Texas Governor Greg Abbott to place an immediate moratorium on new exotic hunting facilities and to direct the state's Attorney General investigate violations of Texas's animal import laws anti-cruelty.

Look into this animal's eyes.  How can we all not help?
Add your name now
and lend your voice to the fight to end cruel, canned hunts.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if people want to help conservation, they can donate money straight to the cause.  There is absolutely no need to kill anything at all in order to help. 

So why are these “sportsmen” killing animals?  Because they get a thrill out of killing. 

How horrible.  It’s time they were stopped and found their thrills doing something else.
