Crack Down on Rhino Horn Trade!

Published 12/27/13

Tell Judge John Gleeson to throw the book at rhino horn trader Michael Slattery, Jr.!

In November, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that Michael Slattery, Jr., an Irish national and an alleged member of an organized criminal group, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy for violating the Lacey Act, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. Slattery traveled throughout the U.S. acquiring black rhino horns to sell using falsified documents.

His hearing is scheduled for January 10, 2014 and the Judge needs to hear from you right away to impose the most strict penalty possible, hopefully deterring other rhino horn traders from engaging in this cruel commerce.

Wisconsin: Oppose Savage "Hounding" of Gray Wolves!

Published 12/20/13

Gray wolves are being cruelly slaughtered in Wisconsin, and soon, dogs may be forced to participate in the brutal hunt. Help prevent this abusive practice by contacting your state legislators AND Dane County Judge Peter Anderson today!

Judge Anderson issued a temporary injunction against the use of dogs in wolf hunts on August 31, after humane societies and environmental groups sued. This injunction will be lifted on December 20 – in only 3 short days! Please ask him to extend the injunction without delay by calling his office at 608-266-4937 or emailing the court clerk at kerry.widish@wicourts.gov.

Additionally, tell your state senators that you support Senator Risser’s bill S.B. 93, which would end hounding permanently in the state. These state officials need to know that you won’t tolerate such a savage hunt in Wisconsin!
