特朗普管理下的动物的状态:一年高点和低点

This past year has been a mixed one for animals under President Donald Trump. On the one hand we’ve seen federal agencies take steps to improve the fortunes of animals used in testing and the wild horses and burros on our public ranges, and also to end breed discrimination of companion animals. On the other hand, we’ve also seen some shocking anti-animal actions, including a conspicuous decline in the enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act and the Horse Protection Act, a continued lack of transparency over recorded violations of these laws, and the dismantling of the Endangered Species Act, the bedrock U.S. law protecting imperiled species across the globe.

如今,特朗普总统准备交付国情咨文他的第三个国家,这里有一个简单的介绍一下他的政府是如何处理在美国的慈善协会和慈善协会立法基金对我们重要的问题。亚博app金沙大赌场

在拍摄动物的积极行动:

  • 环境保护署公布plans to end all tests on mammals,包括狗,鼠,兔,到2035年该机构将在五所大学投入百万$ 4.25至非动物测试技术的发展。
  • The Bureau of Land Management agreed in 2019 to return to a 2014 policy designed toprevent horses from being funneled to slaughterby allowing individuals and organizations to buy only four wild horses over a six-month period. In 2018, the Trump administration had moved to allow 25 horses to be purchased at a time, with no time limit between purchases, making the animals vulnerable to mass purchases by “kill buyers.”

Among the damaging actions taken by the administration over the past year:

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture cut back drastically on the number of动物福利法的引文和执法行动—actions that could negatively impact animals trapped in enterprises like puppy mills and roadside zoos.
  • 渔业和野生动物服务和国家海洋渔业服务规则最后大幅削弱濒危物种法案规定。One of these rules creates additional roadblocks to securing comprehensive protections for threatened species and makes it easier to delist species from the ESA.
  • The National Institutes of Health announced that it will不发送黑猩猩,目前在联邦避难所黑猩猩避风港关押在新墨西哥州阿拉莫戈多灵长类动物实验室,退休,尽管一个表达国会的指令。

展望未来,我们敦促特朗普政府采取以下行动在2020年:

  • 问题来自美国农业部的最终规则,以加强狗只繁殖场,路边动物园等设施下的动物福利法的许可和基本医疗服务需求。
  • Significantly increase the use of humane人口增长抑制工具的局of Land Management to manage wild horse and burro populations on public rangelands, and eliminate research into sterilization as a management technique.
  • 发出从美国国家海洋和大气管理局提出的规则,以减轻损害所引起的极度濒危的北大西洋露脊鲸,包括采取措施降低垂直钓鱼线致命的纠葛。
  • Prioritize the黑猩猩搬迁owned and supported by the National Institutes of Health to the national sanctuary, Chimp Haven. NIH should also prioritize replacing animals in harmful research with approaches that represent the best available science and prevent the suffering of millions of animals in laboratories each year.
  • 完善的动物福利法,马保护法和联邦动物战斗的法律,对小狗面粉厂,马sorers和cockfighters打击的力度,并恢复了最终HPA统治结束马soring这是在特朗普管理的开始撤回。继在FY20拨款法案的授权,美国农业部必须恢复所有AWA / HPA检查和执法记录它在2017年采取了下来,恢复张贴不redacting违规者的身份。
  • 继续为濒危和濒危物种必要的保护,包括拒绝像犀牛,大象和狮子物种的奖杯许可申请,并确保恶劣和非人道的狩猎方法不是在联邦土地上允许的。

动物保护不应该是一个党派的问题。即使是在一个高度极化的大会上,我们看到了动物重大进展,去年与防止虐待动物和酷刑法和其他里程碑,如众议院批准鱼翅销售消去法和防止所有Soring战术(过去)法案的通过。大多数美国人觉得动物有深切的同情和向前迈进,我们敦促特朗普总统把这个政府的政策和资源正视这背后非常美国化的价值。

    它是真正可怕的可能是什么来作为那些有和没有同情心之间的力量对比继续有利于无情的被按下。但事情已经蓄势待发的混合物即放秤上一些额外的重量回来同情和视觉的动物的不断扩大知识作为人类他们的生命都得到尊重,而不是斥为无关紧要;安装的对人类健康和环境的动物产品的负面影响的证据;并开始新的产业蓬勃发展,并为他们在金融世界中的位置而战。
    And individuals, as always, can still make both and large differences in educating others about compassion, especially with leadership from people and organizations dedicating themselves to shining light on where and why it is needed. Compassion has proven itself to be the greatest power in the world, giving people strength and courage to fight even the most vicious efforts to suppress it. Thank you for giving us up-to-date information on the status of laws that help our work for compassion, and those that hurt it so we can be mindful that our individual voices do matter because they one by one add up to numbers that have power to create change. And for those of us who cannot forget the despair in the eyes and terror and pain in the cries of the animals suffering from horrific neglect and cruelty, there will never be an end to the fight for them. That includes showing support for the ones on the front line like HSUS workers and volunteers who are seeing and documenting their suffering so it is not so easily hidden, ignored, dismissed, or forgotten.

    • 弗吉尼亚文森 说:

      ///邮件发送给委员会主席的人,并给他们你的话。当足够多的人写的,他们听。你可以去联邦政府委员会,任务描述,并找到一个与野生动物的交易,并发送了一封信给他们。我不推荐,因为它的博客; S长,但让他或她知道什么是和感谢你的帮助。强调你对不公的感受。
      如果一组说完聚在一起,这样做,他们sten,.
      接下来发送一封简短的信问你的参议员,你的当选代表你涉及发言的委员。

      您的参议员,众议员

  3. 洛雷塔和凯里·斯皮尔 说:

    感谢您分享这些信息。老公和我都是巨大的动物的支持者。它使我们生病,每次我们听到和看到任何滥用和/或任何动物的错误处理。就在今天的新闻表明,他们发现了一个老太太谁了四十一点东西马耳他狗生活在可怕的条件下(和许多严重的健康) - 我们有2个非杀和城市动物收容所(在我们的城市)。每个圣诞节我们确保每一个猫与狗(甚至几个口袋宠物)得到一个新的玩具和零食;大多数新的毛绒抛出。我们也给像清洁及纸制品,新毛巾,办公用品等的需求。我们给予帮助飞的动物,从高杀和其他捐赠。我们穿衬衫和谈论收养VS买一只新的宠物(有些还在做,但我们尝试)。即使我不能工作,丈夫在漫长的日子,我们尽我们所能来帮助(esp.the猫狗)。 We Are SO thankful to EVERY Organization, Workers, Volunteers, Advocates for the animals. It is so hard to believe how people can treat these animals or abuse them to make a buck. We hope the Government does make STRONGER laws against abusers, puppy mills, and make laws to help the animals (not continue to hurt them). Thank you!!
