Governor Pritzker: Please Pardon Luna, the Coyote, and Allow Her to Return Home

After a Year Full of Misery, Governor Pritzker Could Start 2021 by Making the Land of Lincoln a Bit More Humane and a Little Less Corrupt.

Tinley Park, IL – USA | February 23, 2021 — As a new year begins, Tinley Park resident Tomi Tranchita continues to grieve for Luna the Coyote, the lone survivor of an illegal and brutal seizure by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) in April 2019. Luna’s three pack mates died as a result and elderly Luna is languishing at a facility in Indiana while Tranchita continues to battle IDNR in the courts.

IDNR Conservation Sergeant Joshua Mooi, who had moved near Tranchita, orchestrated the raid that initiated the isolation of Luna and separation from Tranchita. IDNR’S explanation is because she had inadvertently forgotten to renew a $25 state permit, yet her facility has been federally licensed the entire 13 years of its operation.

“Mooi knew that none of my coyotes posed an imminent danger to anyone. He interviewed our neighbors, learned they had no complaints whatsoever about the coyotes and examined state and federal licensing and permitting records. Yet, he arrived at my home at the crack of dawn with a rifle slung over his shoulder,” Tomi Tranchita, who called her Wildlife Educational Program and Refuge, Happy Coyotes: Truths about Peaceful Coexistence.

Tranchita videotaped the seizure of her coyotes, who had never experienced inhumane treatment, but rather greeted visitors with wagging tails. According to her, “I offered to get any state permits needed. I begged to crate the animals, as they were crate trained as part of her USDA emergency plan, but Mooi insisted on having the coyotes chased, cornered, and shot with tranquilizer darts — but refused to wait for the tranquilizer to take effect —supposedly he was in a hurry to leave on vacation that afternoon. So, they then used cruel chokeholds.”

For reasons that bewilder and dismay Tranchita and some 50,000 petition signers, the Illinois agency prevails in insisting she have a fur-bearing mammal breeder permit, and since last spring, a hound running area permit. The hound running area permit, not required by the IDNR of any other wildlife facility with coyotes, is the issue currently before the federal court for the Northern District of Illinois.

Luna, whom Tranchita rescued as an orphaned pup, still lives, but spends her days in constant fear of everything, relieved only by rare visits from Tranchita, her only bonded human. “We are pleading with the Governor and others with political power to remedy this tragedy that should have never occurred, especially over a little red tape. By pardoning Luna, Pritzker could help improve Illinois’ politically corrupt reputation,” Chicago Alliance for Animals Executive Director, Jodie Wiederkehr.

Consumers Saving On Pet Medications Even In Down Economy

December 11, 2010 – The recent problems with the economy have left a lot of people and their pets hurting when it comes to finding ways to pay for even the most basic necessities. These days, pet owners go to extreme levels to be able to take care of their pets and in many cases, with the ‘jobless recovery’ in effect, this can be tough to do. That is why consumers are now opting for discount petmeds when they can as an alternative to having their pet go without the needed medications such as flea treatments, de-wormer and pain relief for arthritis. With web based businesses such as PetMed Outlet filling the crucial role of offering these needed pet supplies at a reasonable cost for even the most cash strapped consumers, those who are losing their homes to foreclosures and other economic threats do not need to fear losing their pets, as well.

With flea season coming earlier and earlier in many parts of the country, those with dogs are trying to fight the infestations early, before they get a chance to take hold. With Frontline Plus for dogs being the number one choice for so many consumers around the world today, it is comforting for many dog owners to know that they can find these and many other parasite treatments online for far less than they would have to pay in a standard retail setting. This, combined with the convenience of home delivery, is making it easier for dog owners to be able to give their pets the needed protection against fleas, ticks and a range of other parasites that can infect them with diseases that can be difficult and costly to treat.

Those pet owners who are working through difficult economic times finally have a place to turn when they need to get irreplaceable medications and do not want to settle for off brand medications when a low quality medicine could endanger the life of their pet. Pet industry experts say that as more consumers shift to the web to fill their needs in terms of quality medicines, more pets are likely to get the treatments they need to live longer, healthier lives as a result of the drop in prices.

Pet owners who want to be able to save on important medications can visit the Petmed Outlet website at to learn more about saving on medications their pets need.

The Hunting Broker Provides New Options for Hunters and Outfitters Alike

The Hunting Broker is a membership site designed to provide the best hunting opportunities for hunters and the best value to hunters and outfitters alike.

Clackamas, OR, September 17, 2010 — The Hunting Broker ( ) was founded as a full service hunt consulting company to pair hunters with pre-qualified hunting outfitters and guides. The Company provides access to high quality guides and outfitters throughout North America. In order to provide assurance to hunters, the Company requires that all of the outfitters represented submit to their “Outfitter Quality Assurance” questionnaire.

Most hunting consultants charge their outfitters a percentage of each hunt they book, much like any manufacturer’s representative or commissioned sales person. The Hunting Broker has changed that model to provide outfitters a different option. Outfitter members pay an annual fee, plus donate a hunt every five years for their disabled hunting program and member giveaways. In return they receive benefits which include guaranteed hunt purchase if a hunter cancels their hunt and trade show representation nationwide.

On the other side of the coin, hunter members of the Company pay a small annual fee of $50 and in return receive benefits which include guaranteed hunt deposit returns, entry in to monthly hunt giveaways, and support for the Company’s disabled veteran and children hunting program.

For questions regarding all your hunting needs, please call – 503.956.5071. Or visit their website at
