Pet Cats In Vietnam Are Stolen, Slaughtered And Eaten. While the eating of dog meat…
The reason a few good people are dedicated to helping and speaking up for animals is because there are so many cruel people dedicated to hurting them.
The ignorant and the greedy and the selfish and the backward people among us believe our superiority over the animals gives us the right and the authority to inflict unnecessary pain, suffering, torture and brutal slaughter.
Dumb, cruel, morally-deficient morons is what they are.
( Rose Winfold )
Any argument or excuse for killing wildlife animals is null and void.
We have no right or authority to interfere or attempt to control Nature.
Nature is fully capable of taking care of itself.
Its complexity is beyond us.
When I look into the eyes of an animal I don’t see a product or a commodity.
I see a living, breathing, precious being.
I see a friend, and I do not eat or wear my friends.
As long as man eats animals how can cruelty to animals be removed.
( Morarji Desai )
We dream of a world where animals don’t need to suffer and die to feed humans.
Puppy Trafficking In The UK ..
Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) officials did not give figures but they have no doubt puppy trafficking has boomed since strict laws under the Pet Travel Scheme were relaxed in January.
Dogs had to be three months old, micro chipped, rabies vaccinated, delayed two to three weeks, then blood tested for rabies antibodies.
Then, if clear, they were allowed into the UK six months AFTER the last blood test.
They would be nine months old before arriving.
Now anyone can import up to five puppies that have been chipped and vaccinated against rabies 21 days before travelling.
Vets and border agencies warned there would be a flood of dogs bred in unsanitary conditions then hastily chipped and documented.
The door was open for traffickers to make easy money and it seems fears of abuse were well founded.
City of London animal health inspector Sharon Edwards reported the number of imported dogs held in the capital this year TREBLED.
She said, “Pet passports have helped thousands of people but the new rules have opened up abuse by unscrupulous traders from Eastern Europe with falsified passports”.
When they arrive they have often been locked in a van for days, especially if born in Poland, Hungary, Romania and the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia – all officially “High rabies risk” areas.
Separated from their mothers too early, at four weeks old or under, they have weaker immune systems and sometimes behaviour disorders.
In the worst cases they may not have been wormed or vaccinated and have hidden diseases including the canine equivalent of the hospital superbug MRSA.
Port authority vets said they have seen such infections along with fake certificates of health.
Illnesses frequently include kennel cough, diarrhoea, liver inflammation, canine distemper and canine parvovirus – a cause of vomiting and heart failure.
A typical dog run would be four men in a van with 20 puppies – the legal limit of five “pets” each.
Once past border checks they sell them on via the internet or to pet shops.
Some are sold on to British dealers – in Kent lay-bys or remote garages or even blatantly in the car park at Dover docks.
( Nigel Blundell )
Remaining silent while animals are suffering and being abused is morally unacceptable.
All cruelty springs from weakness.
( Lucius Annaeus Seneca )
It doesn’t matter if animals can’t talk or think like we do.
The only thing that matters is they suffer and feel pain like we do.
They all want to be alive and free like we do.
We’re all the same, just on different levels of intellect.
Although having said that, some people seem to have a lower intellect than some animals.
( Len Firswood )
We have plenty of other food, animals don’t have another life.
Believing that a loving God condones the way we mistreat and exploit animals is pretty stupid and very dumb.
Every time they (the morons who laughably call themselves ‘hunters’) pose for a photo with the dead body of the animal they murdered, they are simply making a fool of themselves, showing the whole world they are a coward, an idiot, and an asshole.
( Rose Winfold )
Caring about animals is not enough.
You have to stop eating them.
No matter how they try to justify it, all their sick, disgusting practises, legal or not, are cruel, wrong and unnatural.
They are morally void.
Hunting is cold-blooded murder.
These cowards have nothing to be proud of.
No Respect From The RSPCA ..
The greatest joy in the life of animal enthusiast David Brown was the habitat he owned opposite his cottage that was home to foxes, badgers, hedgehogs and squirrels.
So when he wrote his will, Mr Brown chose to leave his property to the RSPCA – a charity he trusted.
But the RSPCA repaid his trust by selling the land to property developers, and to the horror of his former neighbours, the habitat was flattened – in just 12 hours.
At least six trees, including two large oaks, were sawn down and the site reduced to a muddy patch.
For Mr Brown had made one crucial mistake in drawing up his will – he expressed the ‘wish’ that the area be maintained as an animal sanctuary rather than making it a legal condition of the will.
This technicality allowed the RSPCA to ignore his wishes and instead cash in by selling both the cottage and the land, in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, for £295.000.
The RSPCA also inherited £30,000 in premium bonds from Mr Brown.
Not respecting the wishes of Mr Brown is despicable and shameful.
The sadistic cruelty inflicted on animals will continue all the while good people remain silent.
Strong people don’t eat helpless, innocent animals.
Most parents teach their children to be kind to animals and then feed them with bits of tortured animals.
Why don’t we tell our children the truth?
( Wilfred Soon )
The problem with “meat-eaters” is they are selfish.
They think only about themselves and give no thought to the victims.
Our planet is infested with mindless morons who kill innocent animals and believe that their miserable little life is somehow more precious than the animal they kill.
We continue to trample on the weak and the vulnerable.
Exploiting and inflicting violence on animals is acceptable.
Civilisation hasn’t come very far at all.
Baby Elephants Tortured ..
The booming Thailand tourist industry is fuelling a huge illegal trade in baby elephants that are taken from the wild in Burma, beaten, starved and tortured to break their spirit before being paraded in front of fee-paying holidaymakers.
Reports indicate that at least 50 to 100 elephant calves are still being taken from the forests of Burma every year to supply the tourist camps.
It is estimated that for every calf smuggled across the country’s 1,200-mile border with Thailand, up to five adult female and adolescent elephants from the calf’s immediate family group are gunned down.
Entire families of elephants are routinely being rounded up and the adults shot dead so that babies can be dragged back to Thailand illegally.
Undercover cameras have filmed the baby calves being tied up, with no food and water, and beaten relentlessly for days on end.
Very often the calves will die from their injuries or from stress, starvation or the sheer heartbreak of seeing their family killed in front of their eyes.
After they have been taught to be afraid of humans, the calves that do survive are smuggled across Thailand.
When they reach the tourist elephant parks, many of them will be chained to a surrogate mother in an attempt to suggest they have been bred in captivity.
( Mark Shand, Co-founder of the charity Elephant Family )
Do you really care about animals?
Or do you just choose to care about ‘some’ animals?
Sadness, misery, sorrow and loss is the same for all living beings.
But so many humans don’t get it, don’t understand, or just don’t care.
SPECIESISM is the idea that being human is a good enough reason for human animals to have greater moral rights than non-human animals.
A prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s own species and against those of members of other species.
The moment you see that victim on your dinner plate.
A victim that has been imprisoned and subjected to cruelty and torture before being brutally slaughtered and butchered, you realise that humans are not the civilised species we claim to be.
You realise what we are doing to animals is wrong, cruel, unnecessary and an injustice.
You become outraged, sad, angry, and feel compelled to do something.
This is the moment when you stop consuming animal products and start speaking up for them.
( Wilfred Soon )
The best taste on Earth is peace.
Imagine a world in which all animals are treated with respect and compassion.
How can we justify feeding billions of farm animals but not feed starving children.
No animal on Earth is able to defend itself against a coward armed with a gun or a bow and arrow.
Or the greedy, corrupt cowards in government who allow it to happen.
Brutality to an animal is cruelty to mankind.
It is only the difference in the victim.
( Alphonse de Lamartine )
Elephants Are The Wisest Creatures ..
According to Daphne Sheldrick, the legendary animal conservationist, elephants are the wisest creatures on the planet.
They organise themselves into matriarchal family groups, share rations and split chores.
They cheer each other up when they’re feeling depressed, love football, never forget a friend, and mourn deeply when a relative dies.
They also appear to communicate by telepathy, passing on messages despite being hundreds of miles apart.
In fact, the more you hear about elephants from her, the more you wonder why they don’t rule the world.
She never shies away, though, from the brutal fact that these are not cute pets, but wild creatures with needs and fears that we can never truly understand.
To make her point she tells us about a horrifying incident several years ago when she was savaged by a wild female elephant she had mistaken for one of her favourite former orphans.
Trying to pet the unfamiliar elephant, she found herself thrown into the air by a flick of the trunk and smashed against a rock.
Then the strangest thing happened.
The elephant realised it had made a mistake and that Daphne had only good intentions.
Apparently appalled by what she had done, the giant matriarch stayed with Daphne to comfort her, trying gently to lift her to her feet with her tusks.
Luckily Daphne survived, her broken body eventually mended, and she was left with even more wonder and respect for the animals for whom, at the age of nearly 80, she continues to act as caretaker and ambassador.
Some people don’t understand why we care about animals.
We don’t understand why they don’t care.
How can we hope for peace when our planet is a giant prison and slaughterhouse?
All animal products are the result of oppression, suffering, violence, exploitation and brutal slaughter.
If you have animal products in your shopping trolley, please don’t call yourself an animal lover.
( Dion Felsrow )
Why do the minority need to explain to the majority that it’s wrong and cruel and barbaric to inflict violence and brutal death on animals?
If you find it too difficult to watch videos of animals being abused and slaughtered, why do you find it so easy to keep contributing to it?
Plant food is made from earth, sunshine and rain.
Animal products are made from violence, pain and brutal slaughter.
Was your meal really so good that it was worth the suffering and the death of another?
A Tortured Dog ..
Last year, while looking round a farm that was up for sale, I came across two collies in a cage.
They had no bedding, not much space and were sitting in their own excrement.
Their water was green and slimy.
When I got home, I called the RSPCA.
They promised an officer would inspect the farm and call me back.
No officer ever did call me.
A friend then told me how a young boy had reported a Staffie pup being kicked by a soldier, watched by his army mates.
The boy called the RSPCA, but they refused to take the puppy away.
I think the soldiers should have been court-martialled, ‘heroes’ or not.
At the end of January, I received a letter from Margaret in Hayes, Middlesex.
She said she had called the RSPCA emergency helpline on nine occasions – reporting that her neighbour was beating and torturing his dog in sessions that lasted for between 30 and 40 minutes.
Another neighbour also called the RSPCA four times.
Margaret said this man beat his small dog with a stick and a metal rod, then held him down by his neck and repeatedly punched him.
“I could hear him grunting with the effort he was putting into each punch” she later wrote in a letter of complaint to RSPCA customer services.
She told me that, despite her calls, nothing happened.
Finally, she rang the police.
She said their attitude was very different, showing compassion and a willingness to help.
They listened, but said the only people empowered to deal with the complaint were officers from the RSPCA.
The police called the RSPCA on her behalf and received the same daft questions: “where were the punches landing?” and “were bruises visible?”
The RSPCA took three-and-a-half months to finally respond to the call for help and unfortunately, by then, the dog had disappeared and another met a similar fate.
Which makes me wonder how the charity is spending its money: £115,288,000 was donated in 2010, the latest figure available.
In the South East region there are only six officers in total.
While much is made of the salaries of our top bankers, I wonder what salary the new chief executive, Gavin Grant, is on (the chief press officer wouldn’t tell me).
( Liz Jones )
If you don’t support cruelty and violence, stop paying for it.
The very fact that having an equal respect for life must be so thoroughly explained says something terrifying about the conscious state of humanity as a species.
Given that plants do not have pain receptors, nerves, or a brain, they do not feel pain as we members of the animal kingdom understand it.
Uprooting a carrot or trimming a hedge is not a form of botanical torture, and you can bite into that apple without worry.
The Dumbest Creatures On The Planet ..
They burn down rain forests, which provide us all with oxygen, to grow crops to feed the “farm” animals they rape and unnaturally breed, just so they can eat their offspring.
And the waste and the shit from these enslaved animals is polluting just about every river, lake and stream in the world, and even the soil and the air itself.
Wildlife animals are not only dying from this pollution, millions are being deliberately killed to “protect” the enslaved farm animals.
Humans are not only the dumbest creatures on the planet, they are the most evil and the most destructive.
