Why do people have to make life miserable for these majestic animals?! Enough is enough...
Add your name if you want whales to be protected from boats, jet skis, and all other kinds of watercraft in US waters.
"Orca experts and people living in the South Sound are frustrated over videos showing boaters getting dangerously close to the animals. In some cases, it appears the orcas are forced to dive deep to avoid the vessels. ...
"When Bliss-Miller heard about the orcas in the area on Tuesday, she drove down to Narrows Park on the shores of the Tacoma Narrows to watch them go by.
"She shot video capturing a boat bee-lining toward them. It appears they dived to avoid the vessel.
""They're chasing the orca and the orca dives and the people go right up to the spot where the orca just submerged," she said," reported KIRO.
But the abuse doesn't end there...
""We just sat there in shock," she said. "We couldn't believe it. They just kept coming. They were on both sides of them. They were behind them. They were in front of them."
"Poe said her husband believes he saw a calf amidst the approximately two dozen boats and other watercraft.
""I saw two jet skiers, and they were the ones who were probably being the most aggressive," Julie Poe, who lives in Cromwell, said. "It's been six days, I'm still upset about it… it was just heartbreaking"," said the same source.
Wouldn't you be upset if you saw this abuse?
Animals are not toys.
They are living, feeling beings with as much of a right to live as we do.
And they need your help.
Senator Bernie Sanders has been a long-term advocate for animal rights, and has co-sponsored numerous pieces of legislation to protect endangered species, as well as to combat animal cruelty.
That's why we're asking him to lead a movement in Congress that would punish people who harass whales for their own amusement.
Don't you want to ensure that whales are able to live free and happy?
Then add your name to ask Bernie Sanders to step up and do what's right for these defenseless whales!
