I am asking UPS to join the other conscientious airlines and freight handlers like Delta and DHL Express that have banned the transport of animals slaughtered as trophies. No animal has unified the worldwide animal protection movement like Cecil, and we must continue to organize in his memory. Please sign my petition asking UPS to stop transporting animal parts from trophy hunts.
UPS says they're participating in a legal business transaction and they "avoid making judgments on the appropriateness of the contents." But while the activity may be legal, the moral implications are clear. To continue this type of business practice flies in the face of the inevitable extinction of many species.
I urge UPS to listen to the masses calling for a ban on the transport of the dead animal parts, rather than the few wealthy hunters who would see our ecosystems implode by their arrogant sense of self-entitlement to kill other living creatures. Specifically, UPS should ban the "Big 5" animals (African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and African lion, and White/Black rhinoceros).
The action UPS takes will have a direct correlation on our children and theirs -- the future guardians of our planet. Please tell UPS to ban transport of the remains of our wonderful animal kingdom.
