Update about 'STOP THE KILLING OF MUTE SWANS IN MICHIGAN' on Change.org‏

from Karen Stamper

"PLEASE POST THIS TO ALL YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES AND EMAIL TO EVERYONE AND ANYONE! THE SWANS NEED SOME NATIONAL MEDIA ATTENTION IF WE WANT THE SLAUGHTERS TO STOP. GETTING THE INFORMATION TO THE FOLLOWING OUTLETS IN MASS IS THE ONLY WAY THEY HAVE A CHANCE. THIS WON'T WORK IF EVERYONE DOES NOT DO HIS OR HER PART. PLEASE DON'T THINK SOMEONE ELSE WILL DO IT, SO I DON'T HAVE TO. PLEASE DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO SPREAD THE WORD. THANK YOU!!!" KAREN

This week of February 10th, we are asking everyone from all over the United States and the world to join in our fight to save the MUTE SWANS in the United States of America.

Currently in Michigan, The DNR and USDA have slaughtered over 6000 mute swans. Their claims that the mute swans are non-native (been here since the 1800's), invasive to other waterfowl (the DNR makes thousands of dollars in rounding-up and hunting the Canada goose), eat all the vegetation in our lakes (yet swans stay on the same lakes year after year and associations harvest hundreds of pounds of weeds from lakes every year), and are extremely aggressive towards humans (State agencies are using a man's drowning death in another state to validify this. It was proven that the swan was not the reason for this fatality.) are not accurate and these agencies refuse to show us, the general public, proof (studies)of their claims. They have no studies on how other factors, such as fertilizers, waste runoff, pollution, factories, etc are destroying our lakes. Instead, they are targeting a bird that belongs on the water for all the things the DNR cannot control. They are receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal grant money to kill these swans. Do we, as taxpayers, want our money being used to kill swans? For more information, please check the Help Our Waterfowl (H.O.W.) Facebook Page for notes from last weeks Swan symposium.

Please, if you haven't done so already, please sign and forward this petition to everyone and anyone.

In New York, the DEC is on the warpath to slaughter all the mute swans in the state, approximately 2200, for the same reasons as Michigan, except they are also claiming that they are non-native and dangerous to air safety. Are native birds smart enough to avoid planes more so than non-native birds?

Please, if you haven't done so already, please sign and forward this petition to everyone and anyone.

Please, if you haven't done so already, please sign and forward this petition to everyone and anyone.

THIS PETITION HAS TO HAVE 100,000 SIGNATURES BY MARCH 1ST IN ORDER FOR THE WHITE HOUSE TO TAKE NOTICE

Don’t kill the International World Peace Symbol – Mute Swan – Please sign the petition

Contact the CNN number provided and plead that they investigate these agencies: DNR's, Wildlife Services, the DEC, all government agencies WHO ARE PROFITING BY KILLING OUR WILDLIFE AND ARE SLAUGHTERING OUR MUTE SWAN because they are receiving federal grant money to do so. They are also bringing in trumpeter swans to states where there are none. Trumpeters are the largest game bird and eventually, when the population is established, they will be hunted for a hefty sum.
Please call 404.827.1500 and select option 1

Please Tweet and copy and paste the following message to these animal supporters along with copying and pasting the message below on your own Twitter Page.

We need everyone's help with this or the mute swans will continue to be slaughtered across the United States for reasons that have no truth, facts, or true scientific studies to back them up.

Thank You,
Karen Stamper

MUTE SWANS ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED BY OUR DNR AND WILDLIFE SERVICES ACROSS THE US UNDER FALSE CLAIMS. PLEASE JOIN IN THE FIGHT FOR THE TRUTH AND STOP THESE DEFENSELESS MUTE SWANS, THE INTERNATIONAL SYMBOL OF PEACE, FROM BECOMING EXTINCT.
