Tell Castle’s Bears to End Demeaning Tricks and Release Bears to Sanctuaries.

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

 Tell Castle’s Bears to End Demeaning Tricks and Release Bears to Sanctuaries


Bears don’t ride bicycles, do handstands, or balance on balls in nature.

Yet Castle’s Bears dresses them in ridiculous costumes, muzzles them, yanks them around on leashes, and forces them to perform demeaning and possibly painful tricks for many Shrine circuses.


 or watch via this link:


Instead of roaming, swimming, and foraging in the wild, the bears at Castle’s Bears are forced to perform demeaning tricks such as riding bicycles, doing handstands, and balancing on balls.

Last year, one was filmed urinating in apparent distress when forced to walk on his or her front legs.

Please join us in urging Castle’s Bears to release the bears to reputable sanctuaries.

The psychological impact of an $11 Facebook subscription

Would being asked to pay Facebook to remove ads attain you appreciate their value or resent them even more? As Facebook considers offering an ad-free subscription option, there are deeper questions than how much fund it could earn. Facebook has the opportunity to let us decide how we compensate it for social networking. But selection doesn’t always stimulate people happy.

In February I explored the idea of how Facebook could disarm data privacy backlash and boost well-being by letting us pay a monthly subscription fee instead of selling our attention to advertisers. The big takeaways were 😛 TAGEND

Mark Zuckerberg insists that Facebook will remain free to everyone, including those who can’t afford a monthly fee, so subscriptions would be an opt-in alternative to ads rather than a replacing that forces everyone to pay

Russia: Stray Dogs and Football Just Dont Seem To Mix.

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

Stray dogs and football just don’t seem to get along.

Photo – Daily Mail (UK)

Please have a look at our recent post re stray dogs being killed in Morocco:


The reason for the shooting of the dogs is an upcoming visit from the FIFA, where the city should deliver a good picture. Namely, Morocco wants the 2026 World Cup to be held in the North African country.  Sadly, stray dogs are seen as a blight on the landscape – so Morocco wants to get rid of them – by shooting.


We have a petition link for Moroccan stray dogs – you can visit it here:


Unfortunately, Morocco is not the only place where stray dogs and the football elite seem to clash.   The World Cup is being held in Russia this year, 2018.


Russia is planning a mass slaughter of stray…

China: Bear Bile Farming To End In China By 2022 ?

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

Proposal introduced to end Bear Bile farming in China


From Animals Asia

At the National People’s Congress and the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Conference meetings in March 2018 (Beijing); a proposal was raised to end bear bile farming in China by 2022 similar to the proposal put forth in Vietnam last year.


7 steps were proposed, including:


  • Banning the breeding of black bears by 2022

  • Banning bear farming by 2022

  • Eliminating everything to do with the bear industry by 2035

  • Speeding up research and approval of synthetic bear bile products

  • Working with international conventions such as CITES to improve the protection level of the black bear.


It is significant that these proposals are being raised at high level gatherings in China.

The fact alone that the motion was allowed to be made public is very encouraging.


Paws crossed that this will progress into actual…

Sambo: exploited for 15 years and finally dies, while she hauls tourists through Angkor Wat!

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

For 15 years, the elephant cow Sambo worked as a tourist attraction in Cambodia, until she suddenly overturned and died last Friday. According to the attending veterinarian Sambo suffered a heart attack “due to high temperatures, exhaustion and lack of wind cooling”. This is reported by the Cambodian newspaper “Phnom Penh Post”. For 40 minutes the elephant cow apparently had to carry two tourists through the temple complex Angkor Wat that day – without interruptions and in the scorching heat of 40 degrees.

The load was apparently too much for Sambo, who is said to have been between 40 and 45 years old. On the way from one temple to another, she just collapsed, the report said.
Recordings posted on Facebook show the lifeless body of the elephant lady on the roadside. As media reports, several eyewitnesses are said to have cried when they saw the majestic animal in that…

Petition · King Mohammed VI: Help Stray Dogs & Cats living in Harsh Conditions From Morocco ·

Help Stray Dogs & Cats living in Harsh Conditions From Morocco
Marisol Murad started this petition to King Mohammed VI

Your Royal Highness,

I witnessed a large population of stray dogs and cats living under extremely harsh conditions. Attached is one photo taken during February 2018 near Ouarzazate in the Atlas Mountains region showing a stray dog’s life conditions.

These sentient animals are always starving and often harmed , and are continually exposed to extreme weather conditions, without having access to shelter.

I wanted to seek your Majesty King Mohammed VI’s involvement in the following resolutions:

1.Support the prompt deployment of the Trap-Neuter-Release Pilot Program in Rabat, and oversee the expansion of the program throughout the country in the near future. This program aims to reduce the population of stray dogs and cats by inhibiting continual reproduction of these animals. Furthermore, this program promotes the health of these animals and the general population through the implementation of general check-ups and vaccinations of the former.

2.Endorse a National Domestic Animal Sterilization Program through which veterinarians promote the sterilization of pets to prevent unwanted reproduction of the animals and an increase in the stray dogs and cats population. Subsidies to cover the cost of this procedure would enable low-income pet owners to sterilize their pets and contribute to the solution of this problem.

  1. Endorse education programs for both adults and children that promote treating dogs, cats and sentient beings with the respect, love, and dignity any living creature deserves, emphasizing the importance of keeping these animals inside homes as pets.
  2. Condemn dog shootings, and impose legislation to prohibit this activity.

  3. Endorse the installation of eating dispensers throughout the cities with food for dogs and cats. Two different options:

· A machine that is currently working in some countries such as Turkey where once someone deposits their bottle at the top, food is released at the bottom. “The Pugedon Smart Recycling Boxes” operate at no charge to the city, and the recycled bottles cover the cost of the food. Above is a link to a video where you can see the machine.

· A dispenser created with recycled material that is also currently working in Brazil.

  1. Further recommend the support of programs that allow stray dogs and cats from Morocco to be rescued and adopted by agencies throughout the world.

Thank you for your time. Respectfully;

Citizens of the World

Petition: This Zoo Let Visitors Throw Bricks at Their Animals – Shut it Down Now

by: Care2 Team
target: City of Fuzhou, China

130,000 GOAL
Sometimes you read a news story so ridiculous you just know it can’t be true. Like the one about zoogoers who threw bricks at a kangaroo just to get its attention.

But the whole story is even worse. The Fuzhou Zoo in Fujian knew visitors were prone to throwing projectiles at their kangaroos. Apparently, they weren’t satisfied with watching them just lay about, like kangaroos are known to do, rather they wanted to see the marsupial’s signature move, the hop.

So earlier this year, when visitors began throwing bricks at a female kangaroo to get it to hop, it was no surprise. Pictures show the aftermath of the senseless attack; the female’s foot had been so smashed it was almost severed. But that wasn’t all, she had suffered internal injuries so severe that within days she was dead.

A few weeks later, at the same zoo, park visitors injured another kangaroo!

The Fuzhou Zoo is clearly not fit to house the animals in its care. They knew of the very serious danger their kangaroos faced every day from heartless visitors, but instead of taking measures to protect them, they chose to look the other way.

It is time the zoo is shut down. This is not a zoo, it’s a house of horrors for poor defenseless animals.

Sign the petition and ask the city of Fuzhou to shut down this zoo today. Visitors to the zoo were known to try to provoke the Australian marsupials to get them to display their signature hopping mode.

It May Finally Become Illegal To Kill Dogs And Cats For Food In The US
It May Finally Become Illegal To Kill Dogs And Cats For Food In The US
4-5 minutes

You’ve probably heard about the horrible Yulin Dog Meat Festival held every year in China. And the dog meat trade in South Korea got a lot of publicity recently, thanks to Olympic athletes like Meagan Duhamel and Gus Kenworthy making headlines when they rescued dogs that would otherwise have been someone’s dinner.

What you may not be aware of is the disturbing fact that the killing of dogs (and cats) for food happens right here in the United States.

While killing dogs and cats in commercial slaughterhouses is against the law in the US, it’s otherwise legal to kill them for food in 44 states. Only California, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, New York and Virginia have laws prohibiting it.

“With the work of our international arm, which tries to stop this practice that’s especially common in parts of Asia, we’ve had instances when these countries say, ‘Well, why are you talking to us when this is still legal in your own country?’” Marty Irby, senior adviser to the Humane Society Legislative Fund, told McClatchy’s Kate Irby.

A year ago, U.S. representative Alcee L. Hastings (D-Fla.) introduced the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act of 2017, an amendment to the federal Animal Welfare Act. The act, which has 239 co-sponsors, would prohibit people from knowingly slaughtering a dog or cat for human consumption.

It would also ban people from knowingly transporting, possessing, buying, selling, or donating a dog or cat to be slaughtered for human consumption, or dog or cat parts for human consumption. Violators could face a fine and/or up to a year in prison.

More recently, Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) introduced an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill that’s just been passed by the House Agriculture Committee. Like the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act, this amendment would prohibit people from “knowingly slaughtering a dog or cat for human consumption” and from knowingly participating in the other activities related to the pet meat trade.

The punishment for violators is a $2,500 fine and up to a year in prison.

“Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” Denham said, according to Politico.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) voted against Denham’s amendment, Politico reports. He said he doesn’t condone eating dogs and cats, but it’s traditional in other countries and he found it “a little tough” to imprison those who do it in the U.S.

It should come as no surprise that Steve King (R-Iowa) also voted against the amendment, since he has a history of opposing animal welfare laws (and once said dogfighting should be legal).

Unfortunately, the Farm Bill also includes a terrible amendment King himself introduced that would eliminate states’ rights to protect animals, warned Kitty Block, acting president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States.

The Farm Bill, which authorizes all federal agriculture programs including food stamps and farm subsidies, is expected to become law by Sept. 30, 2018, when some existing programs start expiring, Bloomberg reports.

Before then, the Farm Bill is bound to get some tweaking. While Denham’s amendment needs to stay, King’s troubling amendment definitely needs to go.
Take Action

Tell Congress that you support the ban of cat and dog meat. Sign the Care2 petition supporting the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act.

If there’s an issue you care about in your community or the world, you can start your own Care2 petition. Care2′s community of activists will join you in your cause and help you make a difference.
