How can I make a petition to ban Dog based hunting,Like raccoon hunting?
My dad sadly is a coon hunter,the whole process is disgusting
I have witnessed it first hand. I have seen what the hunters do to the poor dogs,
The dogs are whipped,yelled at,Cold water
is splashed in their faces,they are sometimes even denied food
Just to train them to hunt raccoons,Then the poor raccoons are hunted up trees
and shot, Some are even torn apart by the dogs.The dogs of the trade are bred in dog kennels to other hunting dogs,and sold at high prices to hunters.The hunters do not think of the dogs as companions/pets they look at them as Tools,Tools to use for their own purposes,tools to make them money from the animals they kill and sell the meat of.I strongly believe that using dogs
to hunt should be banned,not just for raccoon hunts,but for bird hunts,Squirrel hunts,And other dog based hunting. How can i make a petition to END this cruel process,And who should I contact?
Hi @cannablissfully – this sounds like a really terrible situation. Can you please e-mail our Cruelty Investigations Department at CIDinfo@peta.org with the details of what’s going on and how these dogs are being treated? They’ll be able to look into this further. Thanks!
Hey! Try change.org and share it on PETA and on FB or anywhere you can. 🙂 Good luck and try to target legistlation. I actually might want to give your dad this device, I forgot what its name is, but it actually emits a upper high frequency sound that only animals can hear so they run away. Not sure, but good luck!
My dad just hunts them for fun,Not because they get into our stuff. See many coon hunters just hunt raccoons,squirrels and birds for fun.They use the dogs to heard,scare,and kill the target animals.Many of them just shoot the animal and even leave it’s carcass on the ground after killing it. As a sport. I would like them to ban people from killing these kinds of wild animals,but gotta start somewhere,So I think it would be best to target the end of those people using animals as hunting tools,animals are not ours to use! So using them to Hunt is wrong,Like I mentioned these animals aren’t even treated as friends,they are trained from a young age,using cruel training tactics to make them Hunt for racoons.Sometimes the dead body of a raccoon is even used to intimidate them,so that they’ll hate raccoons and want to attack them.
Thank you for the advice 🙂 I am going to try and post this everywhere so people will
become more aware of this issue. Thank you for the petition website too,I’ll make good use of the change.org petition tool.
