PETITION TARGET: U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt
Unsuspecting black bear mothers and their innocent cubs are in danger of being shot to death inside their own dens at Alaska’s national preserves if Obama-era regulations are reversed by the current administration.
The horrifying reversal would also allow wolves and their pups to be slaughtered in their dens during a time when vulnerable pregnant females are trying to safely give birth. Bears and wolves could be forced out of their homes with artificial lights or baited into shooting range with tempting foods such as doughnuts.
In addition, hunters will have the right to shoot defenseless caribou while the animals are swimming away from motorboats.
The proposed changes by the National Park Service would be severely detrimental to wildlife and the environment. And they must be prevented.
Sign this petition urging the U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt to halt a reversal of the current legislation, which protects wildlife and the environment from unnecessary and barbaric hunting methods.
