I have lodged a petition with Downing Street in the hopes of creating a law to ban the sale of birds, being kept as pets in the UK. I wonder if you would be interested to sign the petition, and even create a link on your website so that we can obtain as many signatures as possible.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/BanBirdsAsPets/" target="_blank">http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/BanBirdsAsPets/</a><br><br><br><br>
The petition reads:<br><br><br><br>
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Create a law<br><br>
to ban the sale of birds in the UK<br><br><br><br>
Keeping birds as pets is un-regulated and results in birds<br><br>
being kept in cages too small to fly for the majority of their<br><br>
lives. It also contributes to the import of illegal bird<br><br>
types. Keeping birds is unnecessary and cruel and we would<br><br>
like to see a law which bans the sale of birds within the UK<br><br><br><br>
I have always thought the practice of keeping birds indoors in cages to be thoroughly cruel. I do not wholly expect this to be passed as a law but hopefully it may raise awareness of this issue in the public eye and at least pass legislation about keeping birds in this way.<br><br><br><br>
You can also email this to friends who may not be a member to this site by copying and pasting above<br><br>
the above link.<br><br><br><br>
I would very much welcome your support!
