Sign the Petition to

Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa

​Tens of thousands of animals are electrocuted in South Africa every year by poorly regulated electric fencing. Demand South Africa properly regulate electric fencing now. Electric fencing, used to keep animals out of farms, has spread throughout South Africa and is contributing to an epidemic that is killing and maiming thousands of unknowing animals.

Dying from electrocution is a brutal and painful way to pass and the mass electrocution of animals does not belong in any civil society. These electrocutions could easily be prevented by sensible regulations that made sure electric fences were installed only when absolutely necessary and in ways that least endanger local animals.

We are asking that you address this national epidemic immediately by sponsoring legislation that would regulate electric fencing and stop the mass electrocution of animals.

Signed,

Stop Animal Cruelty
