Hi Folks -

I can imagine that a lot of people have been following the Cecil the Lion story that has been covered extensively on CNN. From watching the coverage I learned that 65 per cent of the Big Game Trophy Hunters - not hunting for food, survival or cultural ritual - but for ego aggrandizement - are Americans. That makes me sick!

So I started looking for petitions addressing this issue -

And here are a few that I wanted to share with you folks .... the little act of signing a petition can become a BIG thing. One petition, calling for the extradition of Walter Palmer, the hunter who illegally poached Cecil the Lion, has already gained over 100,000 signatures is going to be addressed by the whitehouse ... so yes, your little signature, and your sharing petitions with social media DOES make a difference!
