The best protection for animals is not to interfere with their free life.
Don’t try to get money by killing wild animals, since life is priceless and they’re not commodities.
Do not wear wild animal fur clothing, because there is a murder behind every skin.
Do not keep wild animals as pets.
Do not keep wild birds caged for sheer pleasure.
Don’t eat game. Don’t be a gourmand for the sake of your appetite.
Do not eat in restaurants where wild animals are eaten.
Do not abuse, torture or humiliate any animal. Animals have dignity, too.
Do not intimidate, feed, or chase wild animals. “Love me, leave me alone”.
