Sign Petition: This Captive Walrus Was So Stressed It Wouldn’t Eat — Then It Died

Ontario’s Marineland is home to the Dragon Mountain roller coaster, the Sky Screamer triple tower, and the “Ocean Odyssey” rides. It is also home to more than 4,000 live land and sea animals and a whole lot of controversy.

Over the last few years, the “amusement” park has come under public scrutiny for the several high profile marine deaths stretching throughout their nearly 60-year history.

According to One Green Planet, over their six decades of operation, the park has seen the deaths of, at least, 17 orca whales, 25 beluga whales, and an estimated 22 dolphins. So bad is their care that at one point even SeaWorld — no hero in animal rights — sued Marineland to get on of their orcas back whose health they claim had deteriorated after loaning it to the Canadian park.

Now they can add another victim to their list of animals that died in their care: Zeus the walrus. Zeus was once a fine specimen of a young, vibrant male walrus. But his years in captivity at Marineland had taken a toll on him.

No one noticed until a video of one of his performances went viral. The 2016 video showed Zeus to be a mere shell of his former self; he was emaciated and nearly collapsed during one of his performances. But that didn’t stop Marineland from continuing to use him in their shows.

Life in captivity for Zeus was no walk in the amusement park. He suffered from chronic regurgitation which arose from stress from captivity. His disorder meant that he couldn’t properly digest food and it left him “so undernourished that his hip bones and spine stuck out.”

In a statement last week, Marineland said that the necropsy performed on Zeus revealed he died of natural causes. But one of Zeus’s former trainers, Phil Demers, isn’t buying it. He told the Dodo that Zeus “had been ill for as long as [he’d] known him” — around 15 years.

Whatever the reason, Zeus like Marineland’s other animals should never have been kept in captivity in the first place. These animals are literally dying to be free and we must help.

Ask Marineland how many of their animals must die before they realize that what they are doing is animal cruelty.

Sign the petition and tell Marineland to end their live animal shows and give their animals to a proper sanctuary.

Petition: Do not allow the sacrifice of 18 falsely accused dogs!

sosvox.org

In Tecamac they want to kill 18 stray dogs that are accused of having murdered a woman who appeared nude in the street. Who will believe all this show mounted only for the useless authorities want to cover a femicide by blaming street dogs. It is outrageous that they want to blame these poor animals, so we should not allow them to sacrifice them!

The woman appeared naked, that is, after killing her the dogs undressed her and stole some belongings. Who can be able to believe something like that? Please, let us not blame the animals for the insecurity in which we live daily.

We demand that these dogs are not sacrificed, are sterilized and rehabilitated and then can be given for adoption to responsible family.

Stop blaming the animals and look for the real killers!

Petition: They rape, cut and burn dogs alive in Parana and Santa Fe, we want them to send investigators!

They rape, cut and burn dogs alive in Parana and Santa Fe, we want them to send investigators!

A few months ago we had the case of a dog that was found with its eyes ripped and raped with a hot iron, and because of that a march was made in the city of Paraná, now a dog appears brutally beaten on the head with a machete. There are no detainees, there are not even accused, nobody investigates because the government does not care what happens to the animals.

Now another dog appeared raped and beaten in Paraná, and more animals beaten, cut and mistreated in Santa Fe, and so continue these savages because they know that the Justice of this country is not interested in animals, they think they are unpunished, and unfortunately if this it does not change, it will be.

There are several cases of animal abuse that we have endured in Paraná and Santa Fe, that’s why we ask investigators to come because neither the Provincial Police nor the Justice investigate, they are not interested in animals.

It is important to find the culprits because it would be a sign from the Justice that they are going to persecute all those who mistreat animals.

Please, we need to end with such violence against these beings who have no voice.

Wisconsin Support Needed for Bill to End Coyote, Bobcat & Crow Killing Contests!!!

Wolf Patrol

02.09.19 TYLER BELOTT GUT SHOT Run down with dogs and shot in the stomach: Coyotes at May’s Bar outside Crandon, Wisconsin February 9, 2019.

On Friday, February 8, 2019, Wisconsin senator Fred Risser officially introduced his bill that would end the many coyote killing contests held each winter for cash and prizes across Wisconsin. Risser says he looked at Vermont, California and New Mexico where similar laws have been passed or proposed, for guidance when drafting the bill.

MAY's 2018 HUNT POSTER Contests like this event held annually would be banned by Risser’s bill.

He says promoting ethical hunting is at the core of the proposed bill, “What we do is try to outlaw the hunting where there’s sponsored competition with the objective of killing wild animals for entertainment and for the chances of winning prizes and then discarding the carcasses, this is not ethical hunting.”

Sign Petition: They Are About to Throw Hundreds of Chickens Off of a Roof

by: Care2 Petition

Recipient: Drunkin’ Monkey Bar & Hotel

24,849 SUPPORTERS – 25,000 GOAL

During the Pioneer Days festival held every February in the town of Ridgeland, Wisconsin, the entertainment includes a “Free Chicken Fly,” in which over 200 live chickens are tossed off a roof to the crowd below to keep as pets.

We cannot let this harmful animal abuse to go on this year!

The event will likely happen February 16th, but the town has kept the date under wraps because they know animal advocates like you and I will try to stop the abuse — and they are right, because we must stop this heinous celebration.

It’s unclear whether the pioneers of Ridgeland participated in this disturbing tradition, but there’s no reason for it to continue to be held in the 21st century, now that we’re much more enlightened about what entails animal abuse. The chickens are undoubtedly scared and because they don’t fly well, many get injured or even die in the process.

Years ago, the county district attorney investigated the chicken toss to see if it violated a Wisconsin animal cruelty statute. Based on a short video he watched, the D.A. decided the chickens weren’t being harmed and allowed the event to continue. What kind of person sees animals flying off the side of a building and decides that’s fine?!

It’s 2019, not the pioneer days, and it’s time for the chicken toss to end. Please sign and share this petition telling the Drunkin’ Monkey Bar & Hotel, which hosts Pioneer Days, to end this event.more

Sign Petition: This Guy Killed a Shark Just to Use it as a Bong — All For Likes on Social Media

recipient: Facebook

32,750 SUPPORTERS – 35,000 GOAL

A man identified as commercial fisherman Billy Brislane has hooked himself a big problem. The Australian, who is a member of a Facebook group called Fried Fishing, earned the wrath of most decent minded people everywhere when he uploaded a disgusting video.

In the video, the cretin grabs a deceased baby shark with a pipe sticking out of its head and another pipe coming out of its back. In another hand, he’s got lighter. Then to the sound of the kids’ song “Baby Shark” playing in the background, he leans down towards the shark and lights one of the pipes. When he corrects himself a huge puff of smoke comes billowing out of his mouth.

You read right, Mr. Brislane had just desecrated the body of a dead shark by using it as a bong. All so he could get social media likes and laughs.

Social media, however, wasn’t having it. In quick order, he received several complaints and was even visited by the police. So furious was the response that he suggested that he might even take a break from social media. Hopefully, Billy has learned that using dead animals as toys is not OK.

However, Billy isn’t the only problem. The Fried Fishing Facebook group where he felt free enough to upload the horrible clip is a cesspool of disgusting images. The site seems to be a library of videos and pictures where “fishermen” use their catches in inhumane ways as long as it gets a laugh. In another video. Billy grabs a live fish he caught, brings it up to his bare chest and lets it take a bite at his nipple.

In another — now-deleted video — another person also films himself using a shark as a bong.

This group, whose motto is “Fried fishing, stupid s**t, banter about other fishermen,” isn’t a group for fishermen to share stories about the one that got away. It’s one where they can trade videos of themselves abusing animals. And that isn’t OK.
