Pet Cats In Vietnam Are Stolen, Slaughtered And Eaten. While the eating of dog meat…
I don’t have to prove other animals have a soul.
Many have already shown me their soul.
( Anthony Douglas Williams )
We must do all we can to create a world where animals are not treated as products.
Do not make a truce with ‘humane’ animal abuse.
Vegan is the only solution.
( Karen Davis )
There’s a very deep pit reserved in hell for the cowardly scum who call themselves ‘hunters’.
The only creature on earth whose natural habitat is a zoo is the zookeeper.
( Robert Brault )
Using a weapon to kill an animal and believing it to be a ‘victory’, then posing for a photo with that animal’s dead body.
How sick and twisted and perverted and depraved and mentally-deranged do you need to be?
For those who work for the animals, the most feared thing is to see them in a state of extreme suffering.
The activists who have filmed and photographed the unimaginable.
God bless them.
Compassion. In which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind.
( Albert Schweitzer )
If cows were to use their strength against people like the mighty rhino, we wouldn’t be hanging them upside down and cutting their throats.
If pigs used aggression with sledge-hammer mouths like the great hippo, we would leave them alone.
If chickens were feathery Swiss Army knives like the falcon, we wouldn’t be tossing them into cages by the billions.
It is only because they are kind and gentle and trusting in us, that we partake in these malicious acts of violence against them.
What does that say about us?
As you read this, wildlife habitats all over the world are being destroyed to make way for growing crops to feed ‘farm’ animals who will be brutally killed so that humans can eat bits of their dead bodies.
All sentient beings should have at least one right.
The right not to be treated as property.
( Gary Francione )
I want animals at my table as friends, not food.
Why is it that so many people are devoid of empathy and compassion and feel they don’t need to treat our animal neighbours the same way as they expect to be treated?
Are so many people ignorant, greedy, selfish, arrogant, nasty and cruel?
Why do we carry out painful tests on innocent animals when we have prisons full of guilty rapists and pedophiles?
The Earth is large enough for all to share.
But mankind’s heart is not large enough to care.
( Anthony Douglas Williams )
I didn’t ask to live this feral life.
I am a child of the universe, just like you.
So please don’t judge my heart and me.
If you won’t help, just let me be.
The human palate for animal products is eating up rainforests, exterminating wild animals and habitats, ruining oceans, hurting birds, fish, and mammals, and supporting slaughter cultures of total sadism.
( Karen Davis )
Paid for with taxpayers’ money, they call it ‘medical science’, and deranged morons carry out millions of sickening, pointless ‘experiments’ on animals.
If the animals survive the ‘experiments’ then the deranged morons kill them.
A world without huge regions of total wilderness would be a cage.
A world without lions and tigers and vultures and snakes and elk and bison would be, will be, a human zoo.
( Edward Abbey )
The reason a few good folk dedicate themselves to helping animals is because there are so many assholes dedicated to hurting them.
If what you eat involves the misery and the suffering of animals, then in what sense are you leading a compassionate life?
What will happen to the spirit of this ancient dreaming land without the great mobs of kangaroos bounding across the song lines, energising the land?
Will the sunset and dawn mourn the passing of the creatures who danced in their light?
( Sue Arnold )
Because the market for their skins and fleece is so huge, sheep are simply treated as wool-producing machines.
And because workers are typically paid by volume, rather than by the hour, they work as fast as they can, and this often leads to horrific injuries.
Skin, tails, teats and ears are frequently cut or ripped off during the shearing process.
I believe I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t.
To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it.
The pains which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity towards it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.
( Mark Twain )
Mother pigs confined in stalls barely bigger than their body.
Useless, uncaring Governments do nothing.
If you want to eat ‘meat’, then animals have to suffer and die, baby animals have to suffer and die.
The choice is that simple.
The choice is yours.
When you feel the suffering of every living thing in your own heart, that is consciousness.
( Bhagavad Gita )
Is a soon forgotten meal worth an animal’s experience of life?
A good person would never consciously harm an animal.
Wind turbines have led to an 80% fall in protected golden plovers.
( RSPB, April 2016 )
Religion, culture, habit or tradition.
If they include hurting or killing animals, they are SHIT!
Can one regard a fellow creature as a property item, an investment, a piece of meat, an ‘it,’ without degenerating into cruelty towards that creature?
( Karen Davis )
In China and much of Asia they eat millions of dogs.
In the West they kill millions simply for being homeless.
Whoever said diamonds were a girls best friend never owned a dog.
The problem is, we as the human species, impose our will upon every other species on the planet.
( Bob Irwin )
Humans are responsible for the deaths of more living beings in the world than all other species combined.
Whenever we encounter wild animals in nature, we must only ever show kindness and compassion.
The cowards call it ‘hunting’.
An ego boost for a small mind, the feeling of power and dominance, many studies point to being sexually inadequate, a perverted desire to kill the helpless and pose with their corpse, smug-faced, pathetic little men craving attention.
When it comes to animal abuse and cruelty, the silence from the spineless Governments and leaders of the world is deafening.
Cruelty to animals is an enormous injustice.
So is expecting those on the lowest rung of the economic ladder to do the dangerous, soul-numbing work of slaughtering sentient beings on our behalf.
( Victoria Moran )
The world is infested with scum who torture animals.
And corrupt leaders who don’t give a shit.
When the leaders of the world do nothing to stop the horrific suffering of animals, it is fair to presume they too, are assholes.
I don’t see why someone should lose their life just so you can have a snack.
( Russell Brand )
For all the animals that suffer…
We are sorry that our love and our protests was not enough to protect you.
The atrocities that take place in slaughter-houses has been made possible by the masses that have turned away from a reality too painful to face.
In my judgement, the vivisector is to medicine what the pornographer is to art.
( Philip Wollen )
People weep when they see a murdered elephant or lion.
The same people light a barbecue when they see a murdered cow.
Yet, for those individual beings, the suffering and loss of life was equal.
If all humans were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the beauty that existed thousands of years ago.
At least five dogs are stolen or go missing every day in the UK.
In the past 12 months, 1,189 dogs were reported stolen and 627 vanished.
( The Sun, 27.05.2016 )
Dogs teach us about love.
When they depart they teach us about loss.
The majority of animals, including the human animal, are sentient beings.
Feeling, conscious, responsive, aware.
And yet the human animal, who claims to be the most intelligent of all, kills and destroys more sentient beings than all other species of sentient beings combined.
If I am to be a voice for animals, then how should I speak?
Am I to whisper, when they are screaming in pain?
Am I to be calm, when they tremble in fear?
Am I to shout for mercy, as their throats are being slit?
Tell me how I need to speak, for you to grant them their freedom.
( Davegan Raza )
The commonly held notion that punching and kicking an animal is cruelty, but shooting them in the head and slitting their throat is not, is so utterly ridiculous that it honestly sounds like satire.
The abuser enjoys the sense of power and control he derives from tormenting or hurting or even killing his victim.
Many animals experience pain, anxiety and suffering, physically and psychologically, when they are held in captivity or subjected to starvation, social isolation, physical restraint, or painful situations from which they cannot escape.
Even if it is not the same experience of pain, anxiety, or suffering undergone by humans – or even other animals, including members of the same species – an individual’s pain, suffering, and anxiety matter.
The biggest muscle in an animal is their heart.
The idea that we have the right to inflict suffering and death on other sentient beings for the trivial reasons of palate pleasure and fashion is, without doubt, one of the most arrogant and ignorant and morally repugnant notions in the history of human thought.
The recognition that human beings are specifically and deliberately responsible for whatever aberrances farm animals may embody, that their discordances reflect our, not their, primary disruption of natural rhythms, and that we owe them more rather than less for having stripped them of their birthright and earth rights has not entered into the environmentalist discussions that I’ve encountered to date.
