On July 17, 2018 Phillip Peng was arrested in Pahrump, Nevada possessing an endangered wild desert tortoise that he had mutilated and kept on a leash.

PENG used a power drill to make 2 holes through the shell of the tortoise where he attached a metal leash. The tortoise was also found in a deep container of water when PENG was arrested and the animal was fighting to avoid drowning. A tortoise does not swim. A herpatologists that examined the animal stated the drilling of holes into its shell would have caused extreme pain and suffering, hundreds of nerves connect to the shell. The shell had also been fractured. Further, part of the nails in its feet had been worn off from it trying to escape the cable tether. Peng stated he kept the tortoise in this condition for about four years.

Peng was also charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon after allegedly pointing a gun at someones head, False Imprisonment and Carrying a Concealed weapon without a valid permit. It is well documented that those committing animal cruelty often escalate to committing crimes against humans.

The Nye County , Nevada Sheriff arrested PENG on two counts of felony animal cruelty. Subsequently, the Nye County, Nevada District Attorney dropped the one charge and only filed one misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty when the Nevada Animal Cruelty law applicaple substantiates a felony charge. (Case 18CRO3572)

It is just and proper when applying the Nevada State law in this case, (N.R.S. 574.100 (1) (a) 6 (a) that the Nye County Nevada District Attorney, Angela Bello and Christi Kindel, (filing Deputy) reconsider the charges and that the crimes committed by PENG be elevated to felony animal cruelty because they are, in fact, felony animal cruelty.

The crimes committed and the allegations and admissions made by PENG are torturous and outrageous.
The Nevada Desert Tortoise is a federally protected and endangered animal. The only way to prevent and reduce animal cruelty is to hold people properly accountable that commit it.

Trouble-Making Oregon Man, Raymond Reinkek, Arrested For Harassing Wild Bison At Yellowstone National Park Last Week! – World Animal News

By Lauren Lewis –
August 6, 2018
Left Photo by Lindsey Jones, Facebook

Sadly, innocent animals continue to be cruelly mistreated and abused by heartless humans who seem to be void of the gene for compassion.
Such was the case last week when 55-year-old Raymond Reinkek from Pendleton, Oregon, was caught on video harassing a wild bison at Yellowstone National Park.
According to the National Park Service, Reinke had been traveling to multiple national parks over the last week. On July 28th, he was first arrested by law enforcement rangers at Grand Teton National Park for a drunk and disorderly conduct incident. He spent the night in the Teton County Jail and was then released on bond.
Following his release, he traveled to Yellowstone National Park. Rangers at Yellowstone stopped his vehicle for a traffic violation on July 31st during which Reinke was reportedly intoxicated again and argumentative. He was cited as a passenger for failure to wear a seat belt. It is believed that after that traffic stop, Reinke encountered the bison.
“The individual’s behavior in this video is reckless, dangerous, and illegal. We need people to be stewards of Yellowstone, and one way to do that is to keep your distance from wildlife,” Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk stated on a post on the Parks Facebook page. “Park regulations require people to stay at least 25 yards from animals like bison and elk, and 100 yards from bears and wolves. These distances safeguard both visitors and the remarkable experience of sharing a landscape with thousands of freely-roaming animals. People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else.”
“Another way to be a steward: tell a ranger, or call 911, if you see someone whose behavior might hurt them or the park,” the post continued.
Fortunately, on Thursday, August 2nd, Yellowstone rangers connected Reinke’s extensive history, and after viewing the egregious nature of the wildlife violation; the Assistant U.S. Attorney requested his bond be revoked. The request was granted, and that evening, a warrant was issued for Reinke’s arrest.
According to a statement released by the National Park Service, Reinke had told the previous rangers his travel plans, so Glacier National Park rangers began looking for his vehicle there. Simultaneous with that search, rangers responded to the Many Glacier Hotel because two guests were arguing and creating a disturbance in the hotel dining room. Rangers identified one of the individuals involved as Reinke.
Glacier rangers transported Reinke to Helena where they were met by Yellowstone rangers. Yellowstone rangers transported Reinke to Mammoth Hot Springs and booked him into the Yellowstone Jail. He was scheduled for a court appearance the next day.
“We appreciate the collaboration of our fellow rangers in Glacier and Grand Teton national parks on this arrest,” said Wenk. “Harassing wildlife is illegal in any national park.”

Petition: Find and Punish the Individuals Caught on Camera Throwing Rocks at Seals.

186891-1529519547-wide

by: Care2 Team
target: Northumbria Police

13,076 SUPPORTERS – 14,000 GOAL
Grey seals are cute, but they are also wild animals and they deserve our respect. But at the moment they aren’t getting it. The grey seal colony of St. Mary’s Island near Whitley Bay are being harassed by tourists wanting to get a closer look — or worse.

Earlier this month, visitors to the St Mary’s Island Nature Reserve caught a group of heartless individuals taunting a young seal perched on the high rocks of the reserve. As the thugs get closer they begin to throw rocks at it. Finally the seal is so scared that it resorts to throwing itself off the edge and into the water below.

But they don’t stop there, the jerks continue to harass more wildlife as they go on their nature reserve rampage.

Last year, a similar instance took place at the same park. Park goers filmed several seals throwing themselves off the cliffs from heights of up to 16 feet to escape tourists who wanted to get closer to the marine mammals.

Despite several warnings, some visitors to the park refuse to treat the seals like wild animals rather than play toys. This needs to stop. Luckily, the thugs harassing the seals this year were caught on tape. Authorities should have all the evidence they need to find and prosecute them.

If law enforcement ignores this type of casual cruelty it will only persist. That’s why these animal abusers must be found so that an example can be made and to send a message to other would-be abusers.

Please sign the petition and ask Northumbria Police to find the people responsible and punish them for their despicable behavior.

How Does Exploiting Elephants During “Friendly” Football Match In Thailand Help Discourage Youth From Gambling Prior To The World Cup? It Doesn’t! – World Animal News

By Lauren Lewis –
June 12,2018
Photos From The Nation
A “friendly” football match with students riding elephants was held today in Thailand as part of a campaign against gambling on the sport ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which begins on Thursday in Russia.
As per The Nation, nine elephants, adorned with “colorful cheering-squad paints” participated in a free-kick contest at the Ayutthaya Wittayalai School stadium before joining in a short game with a team of human opponents, the school’s youth athletes. The poor elephants were on loan from the Ayutthaya Elephant Palace and Royal Kraal in Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya.

The activity was reportedly held to boost the tourism of the historic province and city of Ayutthaya, the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai, and to encourage people, especially children and youth, to watch the World Cup matches in the next four weeks without placing bets.
What?
The deceivingly vibrant photos captured at the “friendly” event reveal nothing about gambling and everything about the tragic exploitation of innocent animals for the sake of so-called “entertainment” purposes.

There is nothing friendly about animal cruelty and to anyone who cares about the welfare of animals, the photos serve more as a reason why people should not visit the area!

Sadly, they also reflect the increasingly universal failure of some schools and people entrusted to educate children by teaching them that animal cruelty is acceptable when it is not, ever!

Petition: Demand Justice for Horses Starved to Death

by: Michael Taylor

151,900 SUPPORTERS – 160,000 GOAL

The pain of starvation is horrific. It is a prolonged suffering where death comes slowly with a myriad of painful symptoms throughout each stage of physical deterioration.

Starvation is terrible, but to be starved out of apathy is morally abhorrent. For 169 horses at the army unit in South Africa, the nightmare of starvation was only too real.

Sign the petition to demand the people responsible for this crime against living creatures are brought to justice.

An initial loss of body fat is followed by muscle loss and atrophy and, ultimately, organ failure. In long-term starvation, degeneration of the liver, cardiac changes, anaemia, and skin lesions may develop. The brain, which relies on chemical signals to function properly, begins to deteriorate, along with the heart and other muscles. A coma follows soon after, and then death.

The horses had no food, and had nothing to eat except soil and their own faeces. Food was only provided to the horses after the NSPCA forced the army unit into taking emergency action to secure adequate feed for the animals.

Starvation wreaks havoc on an animal, and to put an animal through something that terrible is unquestionably evil, especially when you have the means to feed them, but just decide not to. Such was the state of these horses that twenty-five had to be euthanised, the others healthy enough to be relocated to another facility.

The NSPCA said it had signed a memorandum of understanding with the SANDF in 2016 regarding the care of animals, but that the army had continually reneged on the agreement, showing that they are incapable of looking after animals, and should not be entrusted with any.

General Solly Zacharia Shoke, the men under your command have shown they are incapable of looking after animals, and despite an agreement with the NSPCA your men have consistently failed to provide adequate care for these horses. Now twenty-five are dead, and the others will never be the same.

We demand criminal charges be brought against those responsible. This is cruelty at its worst and we will not allow this to go unpunished. Sign this petition with me and let’s make sure this cruelty does not go unnoticed or unpunished.

Petition: Justice for Suman, the 6-year-old Elephant That Faces a Terrible Fate

Justice for Suman, the 6-year-old Elephant That Faces a Terrible Fate

by: Care2 Team
target: Government of Jaipur

5,048 SUPPORTERS – 10,000 GOAL
Suman never got a chance to be a real elephant. She was born into the notorious Moonlight Circus where elephants like her were forced to do ridiculous tricks to entertain the crowd. But then, it looked like she was saved. Because of Moonlight’s terrible reputation, it was barred from using animals in its performances.

Unfortunately, that isn’t where the story gets better. Suman was then sold to a family known for buying, renting and abusing elephants. When she was only 3 years old she was sent to work on a TV show that was so horrific animal rights activists had it shut down.

Now at 6 years old, Suman’s fate still is uncertain. According to activists the Khan family — Suman’s “owners” plan to train her so she can give rides to tourists. The training process, known as “phajaan,” actually translates to “the crush” during which handlers beat the animal into submission so that it can be docile for the public.

This is not the life that Suman or any other elephant deserves.

Please sign the petition and ask Jaipur officials to rescue Suman and end this terrible treatment of Suman and other elephants owned by the Khan family.

Breaking! Osvaldo Garcia Jr. & Randy Jesus Mendez Arrested In Texas After 117 Animals Were Found Packed Into 2 U-Haul Trucks In Sweltering Heat

By Lauren Lewis – May 17, 2018

In another disheartening case of “what is wrong with people,” two men have been arrested after authorities in Texas responded to an animal welfare call and discovered 117 animals crammed inside of two U-Haul trucks.
The drivers of the trucks have been identified as 22-year-old Osvaldo Garcia Jr. and 23-year-old Randy Jesus Mendez. According to KCBD News, both face charges of cruelty to animals and remain in the Parmer County Jail.

“On May 14, 2018, at approximately 12:00 in the afternoon a call was received at the Sheriff’s Office in reference to an animal welfare concern. The caller reported animals being transported in U-Haul trucks traveling into Texas from New Mexico,” the Parmer County Sherriff’s office posted on its Facebook page. “Two trucks were located and stopped by the Farwell Police Dept. and the Parmer County Sheriff’s Office, located inside one truck were 38 dairy goats. The other truck had 7 goats, 58 chickens, 5 turkeys, 3 Guineas, 2 Chinchillas and 4 dogs.”

As if it were not appalling enough, the animals were “over-heated and in distress with no water with the outside temperature being 86 degrees and the interior of the truck at over 95 degrees.”
The animals, reportedly in transport from Colorado to Florida, were rescued and cared for by a veterinarian.
