Please sign and share this petition worldwide in an effort to stop poaching once and for all within the UK and everywhere around the world! As we continue to fight against these horrific practices, it is difficult to realize that the UK is still guilty of significant poaching within their country. Let us try and do our part to save the animals from poaching and undue death and cruelty! Stop wildlife poaching indie the UK.

Recent reports show that despite all efforts, poaching is a continual problem inside of the UK, with recent issues known as hare-coursing. Poaching also involves fish and deer but it appears that gangs are making large sums of money through this type of animal abuse throughout urban parks. The charity organization known as the World Animal Protection (WAP) is highly concerned about UK animal poaching. They state that "The fact that statistics on wildlife crime, from badger-baiting to disruption of habitats, are not being collated by police forces is a major stumbling block to tackling the crimes."

Unfortunately there is a big market for wildlife and their products such as powdered rhino horns, large live carp and deer. The WAP continues to state that"It really brought to life for us how low awareness is in the UK; 86% of the public didn't know that the police had wildlife crime officers. If they don't know that – if they don't know that this is a crime – then the big worry is that they won't be reporting it." There is  also a huge concern for the poisoning of animals such as foxes and rabbits or birds of prey due to a pesticide known as carbofuran. "There are questions to be asked about where this is coming from. Is it imported illegally or are there stockpiles?"

Many of the recent police intelligence reports in the UK show continual incidents of poach to include hare-coursing, fish and deer poaching, all of which result in horrific suffering of the animals. This is indeed a criminal act and those who are guilty are known as morally reprehensible as people who shoot endangered animals abroad. Nothing separates someone who kills a swan by throwing rocks at it in our country from someone shooting a wild animal for fun on the plains of southern Africa. Both are reprehensible and our perspective and condemnation of each should likewise be the same. This is a serious concern and we need to ban together to protect the animals.
