USA: I signed petition BAN ANIMAL KILLING CONTESTS & PROSECUTE THOSE WHO CONDUCT THEM

Click HERE for the petition to the White House on this topic which reads:

QUOTE:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
BAN ANIMAL CONTEST KILLS AND PROSECUTE THOSE WHO CONDUCT THEMAs citizens of the United States, we are urging you to ban animal-killing contests nationwide. These contests have no relation to hunting and involve no fair chase. Most often, these contests are promoted as fund raisers and "bonding" opportunities. The point of contest hunts is to reward the person who kills the most animals with prizes, including assault weapons.
Opponents claim that killing squirrels and other wildlife helps in pest control. The killing of large numbers of animals disrupts the order of nature, especially mothers who have offspring lacking the appropriate survival skills.
Most importantly, children’s acts of animal abuse are some of the strongest and earliest diagnostic indicators of conduct disorder, often beginning as young as 6-1/2 years of age.
