I received a message this morning and I was asked to forward it along. Please read and take action!:
We are up to our ears in trying to stop the Maryland Government from > slaughtering mute swans in the Chesapeake Bay. To that end, I have > recently received an urgent request to sign an on-line petition asking > Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland to stop the cruel slaughter of these > majestic swans on the Chesapeake Bay. > > The Humane Society of the United States is asking the Md. Dept. of Natural > Resources to end the killing (and is even on an "advisory committee"), but > this independently prepared petition is designed to let the Governor of > Maryland know directly that grass roots people from around the U.S. and > the world are concerned and don't want the slaughter repeated again this > summer. These are just the kind of unfiltered voices that the Governor > needs to hear, and these magnificent birds certainly deserve our help. > > Everything is explained on the website. www.savemuteswans.org > > It only takes a minute! The organizers intend to present Governor Martin > O'Malley with a massive and very impressive list of swan supporters! > > AND WHEN YOU HAVE FILLED IT OUT, PLEASE SEND IT TO AS MANY OF YOUR FRIENDS > AND SUPPORTERS AS YOU CAN. > > www.savemuteswans.org > > > > Let me know if you have any questions. > > > Hope to see you guys soon.
