Every year in South Florida, more than 35,000 iguanas and other animals are killed for the purpose of eating. Iguana meat which contains high levels of Salmonella and other diseases is sold in food stores every day. Iguanas although they are not native to Florida, deserve to be treated with respect. Every day hunters go out looking for them and kill them by using pithing, a method that causes severe pain and internal bleeding and a slow agonizing death. If you think that there is a better way to deal with the iguana then to kill it, please add your voice and sign our petition and encourage your friends to sign too, together we can make a difference. Right now there are currently 50 hunting programs that are actively killing iguanas, these groups mostly search near the Everglades as that is where the iguanas live. The hunting is legally allowed by the FWC of Florida and local police actually defend the hunt! CB Radio believes that animals of the world deserve to be treated with respect and kindness, while we are a radio station, we are so much more! Right now with the hunting season in full swing, iguanas are disappearing at a horrifying rate not only because of the hunt, but because of the cold weather. Right now we kindly encourage you to add your voice to our petition demanding an END to iguana hunting and other animal cruelty, also be sure to leave comments and statements expressing your feelings about this brutal practice. Our goal is to get one million signatures before next year's hunt begins, the petition will be sent to the governor of Florida, The White House, and other advocacy groups. With your help we can end this cruel and destructive slaughter. Thank You!
Now 7 years from the start of CB Radio's Operation Henkaku (formerly Operation Infinite patience ) iguanas are STILLL being slaughtered each year in Florida, and right now with the hunting season at it's peak CB Radio and the iguanas need your help more than ever! Our goal is to get 100,000,000 signatures on our petition before next year's hunt begins, THAT'S 100,000,000 PEOPLE STRONG DEMANDING AN END TO VIOLENCE IN FLORIDA!!!! IF EVERYONE READING THIS SIGNED THE PETITION, OUR DREAM OF MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR IGUANAS WOULD BE ACCOMPLISHED!!!! Last year we got 83,172,153 Signatures AND A SPEICIAL OUTDOOR EVENT IN HONOR OF THOSE WHO SIGNED THE PETITION TOOK PLACE! Again, if you haven't signed yet, please add your voice now and encourage your friends to sign and share too.
