I am a victim of the Canned Hunting industry.
Look at me...Remember my face.
My beautiful mother was forced to breed many times in her life, so she
could produce as many litters of cubs like me as possible. I was taken
away from her when I was only a few days old....I cannot imagine her grief
losing me, as I can only remember mine.
I got sick, I was stressed because of losing my
mother, I was not fed properly, I lost some of my hair, and no one cared, Not
even the tourists who came to see me, because if they knew the
"truth" they would not have paid to hold me, to never let me have
peace. All they wanted to do was hold me. I needed my mother, not them.
My life will consist of being patted, mauled,
forced to be held, while camera flashes go off in my face over and over again,
and when the next day comes, it starts all over like the day before and the day
before that, and the day before that.
When I start to grow, and get too big to be
cuddled, I will then be put on a leash and walked by tourists who come to
places like where I am, who are told that I am a part of a breeding
conservation facility. I wish I could yell out the Truth!!!!
The truth is this. I was born for one reason
and one reason only. I was born to be killed. I was "Bred for the
Bullet." I was born suffering and I will die suffering when I am full
grown and killed by a "Canned Hunter."
I will not know he is a hunter. I will not know
that what he holds in his hands will cause me to bleed and suffer until my life
ends. I will not know he is to be feared because I have been hand reared all my
life, so humans do not scare me.
I will more than likely see that bullet coming
at me....Until it strikes....Me.
That is my life. Please tell the world about
Tell the world about us who are bred to die.
Bred for the Bullet.
Please tell the world about the industry that I
was born into, "The Canned Hunting Industry."
There is nothing cute about petting me. You are
simply helping me be killed. Please always
remember this, no matter how cute I look, I suffer inside and I need you to
tell the world about me and what they are doing to all of us.
