Farmers Insurance is currently running a TV commercial that glorifies trophy hunting. In this commercial a moose is entangled in a swing set, and instead of being set free to roam away from the obstacles set up by humans, we later see antlers mounted on a wall and being shown off by actor J. K. Simmons, implying the moose had been killed?
This ad is not funny, but in fact very cruel.
It is an injustice towards the declining population of these animals. They are vulnerable to clothing lines and other obstacles left by humans in their way, this is not in any way a reason for them to be killed mercilessly! We should be working towards teaching people how to release an entangled Moose, not killing them.
Moose are very calm animals. They are not a threat or predators, yet this commercial shows them as if they are.
Join me in signing this petition telling Farmers Insurance to pull this commercial and associated advertising immediately! They must stop promoting trophy hunting and marketing ideas that promote the persecution of animals for their capitalist agenda!
