Signable Petition Demands Zinke to Reject HJR 69, Trump’s Bear Cub/Wolf Pup Killing Bill

(EnviroNews World News)PETITION WATCH: The Center for Biological Diversity (the Center) has launched an online petition via the Care2 platform demanding Department of the Interior (Interior) Secretary Ryan Zinke “deny any request by Alaska for predator control in wildlife refuges.” This, after House Joint Resolution 69 (HJR 69) was signed into law on April 3, 2017, by President Donald Trump.

The highly controversial bill rescinded the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) Alaska National Wildlife Refuges Rule (Refuge Rule) which defaults wildlife management on Alaska’s 16 national refuges to the Alaska Board of Game (BOG). BOG’s wildlife management plan includes what is know as the Intensive Management Law (IM) — a code that allows extreme predator hunting methods such as killing bear sows with cubs, shooting predators from helicopters, luring bears to bait stations and shooting them pointblank, using steel-jaw traps for bears and killing wolves with pups in their dens.

The Center writes in its petition:

President Donald Trump recently signed a cruel bill into law repealing protections for wolves, bears and other wildlife on Alaska’s national wildlife refuges. The law – rushed through Congress under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) β€” repealed an Obama Administration rule that prohibited killing wolves and their pups in their dens, gunning down bears at bait stations and shooting them from airplanes. And it’s all in an attempt to artificially boost caribou numbers to placate sport hunters.

So far, the Center’s petition has gathered nearly 29,000 signatures and is growing fast online. The Center also points out that it recently filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration over HJR 69, which it says is “no ordinary lawsuit” because it challenges the constitutionality of the CRA itself, alleging the 1996 law violates separation of powers laws inherent to the U.S. Government.

HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR LIFE. ANIMALS SHARE THE WORLD. I AM EXTREMELY UPSET CRYING I HATE THIS INHUMANE MONSTER. I WROTE MORE ON THIS BUT LOST IT. ANIMALS ARE INNOCENT SOULS AND MUST BE PROTECTED. THERE’S NO REASON FOR FOR SUCH INHUMANE TREATMENT OF ANIMALS.. THIS DICTATOR IS NOT MY PRESIDENT. DOESN’T HAVE A HEART. EVIL

    Trump is the saddest excuse for a human being. He’s a greedy old man who cares about no one but himself. He is ruining America’s spirit as well as her inhabitants. How dare he sign off on the slaughtering of bear and wolf cubs. He has no heart. He certainly has no soul. I can honestly say that I hate him with every fiber of my being. I hope he rots in hell. Screw you Trump.

    Shame on you Trump. a great country is great even by showing the respect and the safeguard of its legacy, which is environment and its habitat. Killing Cubs while sleeping means that you are a shame of that country. unable to represent america, human being and even an animal.
    shame on you man. just for money you did so

    Well I have to honestly say after standing in front of trumps house on election day I have very high standards for him. Now I see this about killing animals? I am so ashamed and disappointed I just think I lost respect for him. Those animals do nothing and should not be killed. If any killing should be done they should be opening up a day to where people could take out humans instead of animals. Those animals are defenseless

    Damn I am MAD…….. furious …. pissed …. angry …. frustrated ….. The list will reach around the world for this bull crap and wanting to kill those animals, those defenseless beautiful creatures that were put on this earth by God and you want to have them killed. The biggest shame I knew that could be ……… and here I was bragging to everyone about how you’re going to change this world for the better. I no longer think I can do that. I love animals way too much where people don’t mean squat crap because they cause all these problems in this world those animals do not cause any problems. …… that makes my stomach just turn over and over and over again. 😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😒😒😒😒😭😭

    TRUMP, IF A GOOD LEADER, WOULD PROTECT BEARS AND NOT ALLOW OPEN KILLING OF THEM FOR NO REASON.
    HUMANS ARE NOT THE MASTERS OF THE WORLD AND SHAME THEMSELVES WHEN THEY HAVE NO COMPASSION FOR LIVING THINGS ON THE PLANET. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS WORTH THE DEATH OF WILDLIFE AND THE ENVIRONMENT WHICH SUSTAINS US. MNI WICONI….XOX

    This man is insane, this bill is cruel and grounded on no acceptable solid facts that it is vital to do it.
    Therefore, it should be rejected.
    And by the way, Trump really needs to be dismissed: his insane mind and sick decisions are lethal for world peace and for the planet preservation. In those times of climate change and war, we really need someone wise and learned to rule the US. Please, do something before it is too late!

    On what planet is is acceptable to kill babies? Of any species? What is the rationale for allowing the killing of bear cubs and wolf pups…in their dens…asleep? There is nothing sportsmanlike about it. There is no challenge to it. Overpopulation is no excuse. There simply isn’t a good reason for this. It’s an abomination and I am begging that this bill doesn’t become law. It’s awful and would be one more reason to be ashamed of America. NOT MAGA.

Children, need to know what these Precious Animals are and how they contribute to the Environment /Earth. This person (D. Trump) is A Demon! with no Conscience or Compassion. Just another thing He can say (I did That) Yeah! that was me that did it.

    ALL ANIMALS ARE THE INNOCENT SOULS OF THIS WORLD AND US HUMANS ARE OBLIGATED TO PROTECT AND NURTURE THEM. PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU ARE A DISGRACE AND ARE DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS THIS PLANET AND THE HEALTH OF IT. YOU WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR YOUR SINS OF GREED AND INSATIABLE HUNGER FOR POWER AT SOME POINT. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL SIR.

    Enough damage is being done to our environment by Donald Trump. It has to STOP! We hunted bears and wolves almost to extinction in the past. We have worked hard for years to bring them back. STOP THE MADNESS NOW!

    I hate Trump and all his cronies. I am Lakota Native American. My Native Americans once said: “If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.”
    -Chief Seattle
    It’s time for Trump and his cronies to go NOW. They can move to Russia and live with Putin. Get rid of this trash.

    This person is on a maniacal crusade to destroy every living person, place, animal and plant. There is no reasoning with a totally insane person. Those that follow are just as scary. The smiling faces of those that kill these creatures totally disgust and anger me completely. Please reject such a total disrespect for animals and their babies, how could anyone be so inhumane daily, every second in every thought?? He is a monster and all that follow are too.

    Just what this appalling, emotionally bankrupt President would do. Not surprised by his disgusting actions and those of the psychopathic killers he enables – his own sons among them.

    Making America great again? America has NEVER sunk so low in the estimation of the western world.

    America has good people – but the gun-obsessed, would-be murderers who hold shooting competitions to kill helpless wildlife and encourage children to learn that killing is fun and entertainment, have tarred all Americans with the same brush.

    The children who have participated in these contests will have no concept of preserving life and may well grow up to take human life in consequence.

    Killing anything while asleep is a disgrace , killing wildlife we should be saving and protecting is the worse crime
    Why are you allowing this to happen !?There is no reason whatsoever why ! You are power hungry and have no respect for living beings. You won’t be happy till everything every special creature and animal is EXTINCT !
    Shame on you ! You are a disgrace !
    Why can’t you protect instead of KILL!!!

    COWARDLY CRAP FROM THIS GHOUL OF A “PRESIDENT.” SINCE WHEN IS KILLING BABIES OF ANY SPECIES SEEN AS A GOOD THING? WE WORKED TO GET THE WOLF AND BEAR POPULATIONS RESTORED, AND NOW YOU KILL THEIR CHILDREN? THESE ANIMALS HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE ON THE PLANET WITH US. THIS IS INHUMANE AND DISGUSTING. ‘JUST SAY NO’ TO HJR 69!! IT IS A STAIN ON OUR NATIONS HEART.

    HR 69 is a horrible bill. Mass murder of animal species that are indigenous to those areas could wipe them out. It’s cowardly and it’s only because rich people want that land for financial purposes. Animals should have rights.
