PETITION: Justice for Elephants Beaten Raw and Bloody For Thailand’s Tourism Industry

PETITION TARGET: Thai Ambassador to the U.S. Pisan Manawapat

Horrifying pictures have emerged of elephants brutally struck over and over again with sharp metal hooks on the island of Phuket in Thailand, blood dripping down their heads and their bodies covered in dozens of scars from old wounds. Mahouts, or elephant trainers, hit the poor elephants with razor-sharp tools to make them behave for human entertainment — the most popular form being riding elephants.

Add your voice to stop this senseless torture of elephants in Thailand.

There are currently 3,500 wild elephants and 4,500 domesticated elephants living in Thailand. World Animal Protection reports that of the 3,000 working elephants in Asia, 77% are treated inhumanely. This abuse ranges from being fed poor diets, kept near distressing loud places, and, when not working, being held in captive isolation with chains less than 10 feet long.

As reported by UNILAD, Dr. Patrapol Maneeorn, a wildlife veterinarian of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, claims that Thailand is working to improve, and eventually eradicate, elephant cruelty.

“What we are doing is collaborating with different organizations and sectors in Thailand to reduce and hopefully eliminate animal cruelty as much as possible.”

But we have a long way to go and no time left to wait. We must speak out to end elephant tourism now. Elephants are intelligent, social creatures who do not deserve to spend their lives being mercilessly beaten for entertainment.

Sign this petition to urge Ambassador Manawapat to end elephant tourism once and for all and spare these majestic creatures from a life of unrelenting pain.

PETITION: JUSTICE FOR DOLPHIN IMPALED AND LEFT FOR DEAD

PETITION TARGET: Director of NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement Jim Landon

Florida wildlife officials discovered a fatally wounded bottlenose dolphin along the coast of Upper Captiva Island in Lee County, reports the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

“There was a wound penetrating from above and in front of the right eye, extending almost 6 inches toward the top and back of the head. The wound ended inside the head at the top of the skull and had evidence of hemorrhaging, indicating wounds consistent with being impaled prior to death,” the NOAA stated.

The necropsy revealed the dolphin was likely “begging” for food when gruesomely stabbed by a “spear-like object.”

“People can help prevent future harm to wild dolphins by not feeding or attempting to feed them. Not only is it illegal, dolphins fed by people learn to associate people, boats, and fishing gear with food, which puts dolphins and people in harmful situations,” the NOAA informed.

“Harassing, harming and killing wild dolphins is also illegal,” the Miami Herald warned.

Sign this petition to urge NOAA Director Jim Landon to use all available resources to investigate this horrific crime against protected wildlife, so the perpetrator can be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the NOAA Enforcement Hotline as soon as possible at 1-800-853-1964. There is a $38,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

PETITION UPDATE: Man Who Beat Sparky the Puppy with A Hammer Sentenced to Jail

ladyfreethinker.org

A man in Lurgan, Ireland has been jailed for the murder of an 11-week-old puppy.

On July 10, Craigavon Crown Court sentenced 24-year-old Kyle Keegan to two and a half years for the crime. Keegan, who admitted earlier this year to animal cruelty, will spend half of his sentence behind bars.

After being released, he will spend the remainder of his sentence “on licence,” or required to adhere to certain restrictive conditions (similarly to what’s known as “probation” in the United States).

The judge also imposed a 30-year ban on Keegan having any animals in his care.

Keegan was arrested for causing unnecessary suffering to animals in February 2018, after a mixed-breed puppy named Sparky was brutally beaten with a hammer and placed inside a microwave during a house party. He was identified as one of two males seen committing the gruesome act in a viral video that circulated on Snapchat and other social media platforms.

After Keegan and his 16-year-old counterpart murdered Sparky, his body was disposed of in a garbage receptacle at Ailysbury Park in Lurgan. An autopsy determined that Sparky had multiple fractures and severe brain trauma as a result of his head being smashed.

A Lady Freethinker petition urging the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) to arrest Sparky’s killers and ban them from having animals garnered nearly 25,000 signatures. Thank you to everyone who signed, helping in the fight to deliver justice to Sparky.

“It is difficult to imagine how violence could be any more gratuitous than when meted out to an 11-week-old small breed pup by the use of a claw hammer to stove its skull in,” Judge Neil Rafferty stated during Keegan’s sentencing.

“There is little can be said that would express the horror of this small dog’s death at your hands.”

PETITION: Justice for Swordfish Stoned to Death by Tourists

PETITION TARGET: Greek Minister of Justice Kostas Tsiaras

A crowd of tourists on a beach in Chalkida, Greece tormented and attacked a disoriented swordfish who had accidentally comes too close to shore, stoning the innocent creature to death.

A video on Facebook shows onlookers laughing heartlessly while the attackers strike the swordfish with rocks and other objects, trying to grab the fish as the animal swam around in a confused state, desperately trying to escape to safety.

The frightened swordfish finally managed to get away, but a small group of men then further hounded her, intent on continuing the attack. Officials later discovered the animal dead in the harbour.

Not only did onlookers stand by and allow this terrible attack to happen, but harbour officials reportedly failed to take measures to prevent the escalation of the brutality.

This shocking incident must be investigated thoroughly and the attackers punished. Greek authorities need to make it clear that the abuse of animals is completely unacceptable.

Sign this petition to urge the Greek Minister of Justice, Kostas Tsiaras, to ensure that this case is fully investigated and that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

PETITION TARGET: Plainfield Police Department Director Lisa Burgess

A defenseless raccoon trapped in a cage in Plainsfield, New Jersey was soaked in accelerant and burned alive, dying in terror and agony on the 4th of July.

Police discovered the body of the juvenile raccoon in the early morning after responding to calls reporting the incident. They found the burned corpse in a small cage on the curbside.

Two other raccoons were discovered in cages outside the home, but they were unharmed. An investigation revealed that a pest control company set up the cages.

Plainfield Police are still investigating this horrific act of cruelty and ask anyone with information to contact Police Lt. Edward Hafekin at 908-753-3131 or Prosecutor’s Office Sgt. Vito Colacitti at 908-527-4670.

Anyone capable of torturing and murdering an innocent animal in this way is a danger to animals and humans, and needs to be caught.

Sign this petition urging Plainfield Police Director Lisa Burgess to ensure police conduct a thorough investigation and prosecute whoever did this to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION: Justice for 29 Dogs Burned to Death in Kennel Fire

ladyfreethinker.org

PETITION TARGET: DuPage State’s Attorney Robert Berlin

Crammed into tiny, filthy cages stacked atop one another, 29 dogs burned to death in a kennel fire in Carol Stream, Illinois. With nobody there to watch the dogs and zero fire safety measures in place, the dogs had no hope of escape as the building quickly became engulfed in flames.

A six-month investigation by local authorities revealed abhorrent practices at the kennel long before the fire. Officials discovered dogs with puncture wounds, lacerations, abrasions, weight loss, and dehydration.

Investigators say the house reeked and water bowls lay empty. One of the dogs that perished in the fire was tied to a bathtub so tightly that the canine wouldn’t have even been able to lie down to rest.

While firefighters and police managed to rescue 22 of the 58 dogs housed on the property, they were unable to reach those trapped on the second floor of the building.

Police have charged owner Garrett Mercado with 14 counts of animal cruelty and 14 counts of violating his duties as an animal owner. Now, we must urge prosecutors to treat this case with the severity it deserves, and call for a lifelong ban on the defendant from ever having another animal in his care.

Sign this petition urging DuPage State’s Attorney Robert Berlin to ensure that justice is served in this tragic case, and protect future animals from neglect.

Sign Petition: This Guy Ram into Windo the Seal with His Boat

recipient: Devon P

Windo the “friendly seal” of Dartmouth, United Kingdom has become famous around the area. The portly pinniped is known for lounging on his favorite buoy near the coast. He’s even known to wave at tourists as they pass by.

That’s why, locals and tourists alike, were so enraged when they heard that Windo had been attacked by a jackass on a boat.

Local Andy Kyle said he witnessed the idiot, take aim at the dinghy where Windo usually rests and then speed towards it to knock him off. Windo went flying into the water, only to come back to his perch again.

The man continues to harass Windo and then goes on his way.

Whoever this jerk is, he should be found and charged with animal cruelty. Sailing his boat so recklessly and ramming it into Windo like that is not ok. He could have seriously injured Windo or worse! Windo is a living thing and deserves to be treated with respect. There’s no reason to harass and abuse an animal like that. Especially one that’s beloved by all.

Tell the Devon Police you want them to find Windo’s attacker and charge him with animal cruelty.

Sign the Petition: Shut Down the Abuse of Animal Cruelty to Cows at Fair Oaks Farm

 

change.org

Kai Marten started this petition to Coca-Cola and 1 other

On June 4, 2019, a video was released exposing Fair Oaks Farm, in Indiana, for their animal abuse and cruelty. The video showed calfs being separated from their mothers, being thrown into trucks, being stepped on, being hit, and other forms of cruelty. The lack of respect show to these animals is unacceptable.

Everyone sees Fair Oaks as a family friendly place to be. It is an animal killing place for profit by big corporations. I urge Coca Cola to stop funding this place.

Fair Oaks kills cows everyday. They show the proper way to milk a cow everyday in the showrooms. However, they fail to show the extreme abuse from the handlers to the cows. The lack of dignity from these employees is unacceptable. This is not just one or two bad workers, it’s all of the cow handlers.

Coca Cola has the power to shut down this operation. I urge you to sign this petition to stop this abuse and give these innocent animals liberation.��✨

Sign Petition: Stop Animal Abusers From Getting Pets Through Craigslist!

thepetitionsite.com

A man was recently arrested for acquiring an estimated twelve cats and kittens through Craigslist to brutally torture and kill them. Sadly, we hear about similar cases time and time again in the news.

In 2015, a man was arrested for tying a dog’s legs together, muzzling her and setting her on fire while she was still alive. The man got the dog from Craigslist.

In 2013, a man was charged with 22 counts of animal cruelty for torturing kittens he got off of Craigslist. The man told police he had a “cat room” where he would torture the cats and discard their carcasses.

In this most recent case, the alleged animal abuser stomped on the heads of cats and strangled them. After the cats died, he dismembered some of them, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Craigslist provides an avenue for animal abusers to easily obtain animals with little risk of detection. Abusers can use fake email addresses and phone numbers to get animals from unsuspecting pet owners. Unlike reputable shelters and rescues, pet owners looking to find a new home for their animal might not know the right questions to ask.

Shelters and rescues often use application forms, reference checks and home inspections to ensure their pets are going to a safe home.

Craigslist states in its policy that pet sales are prohibited but specifies that “re-homing with small adoption fee ok”. Recent cases show us that Craigslist’s policy is not enough to protect innocent animals from getting into the hands of depraved animal abusers. There is no clear option for monitoring the transfer of pets to ensure that the animals are only going to safe homes.

Therefore, we need to protect our beloved pets by preventing animal abusers from being able to simply scroll online to find new victims. Craigslist needs to prohibit all ads giving away pets- regardless of whether the seller is charging a fee or not.

We can not continue to allow these abuses in the sight of everyone and that nobody does anything. This lioness was MUTILATED so that some people could approach her to play. This madness happened in the zoo of the Palestinian city of Rafah, a place that should be closed and its animals taken to sanctuaries, because they surely have done similar things with other animals.

Let’s do something, these places can not be anyone’s land to do what they want with animals, there are international laws, and if there are not there should be. Please, ask the Government of Israel to rescue the animals of that zoo and take them to a sanctuary or something similar where they can live happily without being mistreated.

Second PETITION: Justice for Bear Pelted with Stones who Fell to Its Death

PETITION TARGET: Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Dr. Harsh Vardhan.

After a young brown bear wandered into a village in India’s Jammu and Kashmir state, locals terrorized, chased and pelted the animal with stones before the terrified bear fell 50 feet into a river to die, according to reports.

Smartphone footage from earlier in the day shows the panicked bear trying to flee from a mob of locals. The bear becomes painfully tangled in barbed wire, before pulling free and escaping.

Another video shared on Twitter shows the bear desperately clinging to the side of a steep mountain while people throw rocks at the petrified animal. One rock hits the bear on the head, causing the bear to lose balance and fall, tumbling and crashing down the cliff before disappearing into a river as the crowd cheers.

Wildlife conflict is an ongoing problem in India, as human populations grow and destroy precious habitat. This heartbreaking incident highlights the need to increase protections for the critically endangered brown bears in the country, along with other species at risk.

Sign this petition urging India’s Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change to not only find and prosecute all involved, but to increase education for villagers on how to deal with wild animal conflicts, so no more creatures suffer a similar fate to this bear.

Long Island couple tortured and viciously beat 3 adopted dogs to death

Ellie Knoller and wife Jessica Kuncman were arraigned Wednesday in court. A Goldendoodle named Bella (left) was allegedly abused in their care.

Ellie Knoller and wife Jessica Kuncman were arraigned Wednesday in court. A Goldendoodle named Bella (left) was allegedly abused in their care. Victor Alcorn

A Long Island man and his wife brought three lovable puppies into their Mineola home, where the husband viciously beat the pooches while his spouse did nothing — leaving two dead and another fighting for her life, according to prosecutors.

Jessica Kuncman, 30, and Ellie Knoller, 29, were hit with charges stemming from the torture of their three dogs, one after the other, each beaten within days of being brought back to their Mineola home.

The couple — who has been married less than a year — pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Nassau County Court to the heinous crimes, which prosecutors describe as “serial” animal abuse.

“In my 28 years as a prosecutor, I have never seen a case where someone committed this kind of serial violence against different puppies,” said Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas.

Prosecutors said the pair adopted the first pup, a male shepherd mix named Tucker, on Feb. 8 from North Shore Animal League — but nine days later the new pet was dead from a kidney rupture as a result of Knoller’s “blunt force trauma to the dog.” Tucker suffered from extensive internal bleeding and died.

The very next day, the couple purchased a Goldendoodle named Cooper from a Pennsylvania breeder. But the designer dog — which can fetch as much as $3,000 from a breeder — was dealt a similar fate.

Three days after his adoption, Cooper bled to death from internal injuries, which were the result of being pummeled by Knoller, according to prosecutors. He suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest from the disturbing abuse.

On Feb. 20, Knoller allegedly brought the puppy into Garden City Veterinary Care in cardiac and respiratory arrest.

By the time a veterinarian examined Cooper he had already died.

Knoller then returned to the same breeder days after Cooper’s death and complained he was sold a sick animal. He was given another Goldendoodle named Bella from the same litter.

The couple’s lone surviving dog was then allegedly choked, beaten and suffered several broken bones. The shaggy pooch was left with injuries that total more than $18,000 in medical bills — including broken ribs, a forearm fractured in two places and a pulmonary contusion, according to the Nassau County SPCA.

“I’ve never ever seen a case of serial animal abuse like this. Basically serial murder of an animal,” said Gary Rogers, the SPCA’s president, outside the court. “It’s just wrong.”

Both newlyweds were charged Wednesday with over-driving, torturing and injuring animals. Knoller also faces a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

Knoller and Kuncman face a max of two years and one year, respectively, if convicted on the top count.

“I don’t know why this happened and unfortunately the dogs can’t tell us,” Singas said. “Maybe there are anger issues. Maybe it’s some kind of sick sport.”

Judge Meryl Berkowitz ordered the couple Wednesday not to have any pets during the trial.

“The defendants are not allowed to have any kind of animals — not a dog, not a cat, not a bird, not a goldfish,” Berkowitz said.

The pair were released without bail but had their passports taken away. They drove off in a Range Rover without commenting.

PETITION: Justice for Sir Edwin, Dalmation Shot In His Own Home

PETITION TARGET: Warren County DA Jason Carusone

In the early hours of the morning of May 10, a man shot and killed a two-year-old Dalmatian named Sir Edwin in the dog’s own home.

The suspect, Joshua Marcantonio, reportedly visited the residence in Glens Falls, New York, to catch up with friends. Jacqueline Gilligan, one of Sir Edwin’s guardians, told WNYT that Marcantonio had punched her father in his sleep before leaving the house, only to return with a shotgun.

He then fired the gun through the closed front door, narrowly missing a man on the other side but killing Sir Edwin almost instantly. Gilligan says she heard the blast of the gun followed by the yelp of her precious dog who died shortly after, terrified and confused.

Glens Falls Police arrested Marcantonio, who is now in the Warren County Jail. Police charged him with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Glens Falls Police Detective Lt. Peter Casertino said the department would also file animal cruelty charges, according to The Post-Star.

Sign this petition urging Warren County DA Jason Carusone to treat this case with the severity it deserves, and prosecute Marcantonio to the fullest extent of the law — ensuring he can’t hurt another animal or endanger human life again.

PETITION TARGET: Laconia Police Department

In a shocking act of cruelty, someone shot an arrow through a 10-month old kitten named Wolfie in Laconia, New Hampshire, in April.

The thick arrow pierced Wolfie’s back leg, shattering her tibia and fibula, and only narrowing missing her femur and femoral artery, according to an update on her guardian Liz Carmignani’s GoFundMe page.

Carmignani found the injured kitten outside her house, terrified and in pain. After the traumatized cat went into shock and lost consciousness, she rushed her to the vet to get the arrow removed.

Initially, vets thought they would need to amputate the mangled limb, but they were fortunately able to repair it using metal rods. However, Wolfie’s recovery will be lengthy, and she will need further surgery to remove the rods.

Laconia Police Chief Matt Canfield told the Laconia Daily Sun that the arrow was a Mossy Oak brand, commonly launched by compound bows and crossbows. Local police are still investigating this malicious attack.

We need to act now to bring Wolfie’s attacker to justice before they can hurt or even kill any more animals like her.

Sign the petition urging the Laconia Police Department to use all possible resources to find the person responsible for this horrific abuse.

Anyone with information about the attack should call the Laconia Police Department crime line on 524-1717.

A sweet little miniature horse named Quigley was callously murdered and his body mutilated in Bethany, Missouri, last week.

The perpetrator shot the much-loved four-year-old horse through the neck before chopping off his genitals, hacking off one of his ears and gouging out an eye. This beautiful horse had also been skinned from his belly up with surgical precision, reported KQ2.com.

Quigley’s guardians discovered his butchered body in his field when he didn’t come to the gate for his morning feed. They had cared for him since he was only a few months old and considered the 30-inch horse to be a treasured part of the family.

The Bethany Police Department is currently investigating, but has not yet reported any developments or arrests, according to the Kansas City Star.

SIGN: Justice for Estrella, Dog who Died from Sexual Assault

Petition Target: Oregon Governor Kate Brown

This case is horrifying. An Oregon man brutally raped his fiancée’s dog in a drunken rage after she wouldn’t respond to his text messages. The dog’s internal injuries were so severe the vet had to euthanize the small Lhasa Apso, named Estrella.

Estrella lost her life — but her attacker only served 60 days in jail, because that is the maximum allowed under current law for first-degree aggravated animal abuse and sexual assault of an animal.

“If it could have been more, I gladly would have given you more time,” the judge said, according to New York Daily News.

Oregon must stop letting animal torturers get away with their crimes.

When this case broke, over 32,000 people signed LFT’s petition calling for justice. But justice has not been served, and we must keep speaking out for Estrella.

Estrella’s attacker, Fidel Lopez, is already out of jail. He will be able to own a dog again in his lifetime. His meager sentence — which includes three years of probation, mental evaluation and counseling — sends a message that anyone can hurt or kill an innocent animal and get away almost scot-free. While counseling is indeed crucial, allowing this man to walk the streets puts both animal and human lives in danger.

“The torture and abuse that Estrella suffered is unimaginable,” Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Nicole Jergovic said in a news release.

And what is to deter Estrella’s rapist from striking again?

Sign this petition urging Oregon Governor Kate Brown to make it a top priority to pass stronger animal protection laws, so judges can hand out appropriate sentences and animal torturers are held accountable for their crimes.

Officer Out on Bail for 40 Counts of Dog Sex Abuse Now Arrested for Child Pornography

ladyfreethinker.org
Image courtesy In Defense of Animals

Yet another disturbing case reveals the strong link between animal cruelty and crimes against humans.

A former police officer in Bossier City, Louisiana was arrested for possession of child pornography while out on bail for multiple acts of sexual abuse against a dog.

On April 12, Terry Yetman was booked into the Bossier Parish Jail on 31 counts of child pornography. Yetman had previously been arrested on December 20 of last year on 20 felony counts of bestiality and 24 counts of filming the sick acts with a retired police dog.

“Yetman’s second arrest for sickening abuse of the vulnerable should come as no shock to anyone involved in law enforcement or animal protection,” stated Doll Stanley, campaign director for In Defense of Animals. “Yetman’s case is a classic example of how animal abusers are a threat to the entire community. Statistics bear out the indisputable fact that acts of animal cruelty and violence to fellow humans are linked.”

An investigation was launched in August 2018 by the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit into the alleged animal abuse, during which electronic evidence of Yetman’s abuse against a Belgian Malinois was uncovered.

The day before Yetman’s arrest for child pornography, In Defense of Animals delivered a petition containing 20,000 signatures to Bossier District Attorney Schuyler Marvin calling for the rigorous prosecution and sentencing of Yetman for these crimes. The organization is also calling for animal protection training among law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

It is unclear whether Yetman was charged under state or federal child pornography laws. He faces a possible life sentence in prison for his animal abuse charges.

Yetman’s bail is currently set at $620,000 and additional charges could be filed. He is currently being held at Bossier Maximum Security Facility, and his next bond hearing is set for April 23.

PETITION TARGET: Cambridgeshire Police and Lincolnshire Police

Tossed like disposable trash, more than 160 helpless chicks were dumped on the roadside to die in the English counties of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.

Sixty of the chicks were already dead by the time anyone found them. These baby birds never had a chance.

“They had no access to nearby food or water or shelter from predators and had they not been found, then sadly the rest would have perished as well,” said RSPCA inspector Justin Stubbs, describing the appalling scenario.

The chicks were abandoned in two separate incidents that appear to be connected, according to RSPCA spokesperson Amy Okelford, who believes the animals may have been for sale as pets and were discarded when they failed to sell in time for Easter.

It is never OK to simply throw out a living, breathing creature because they are not “profitable.”

Sign this petition urging police to do everything in their power to track down and prosecute the individual(s) behind these cruel acts.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the RSPCA.

Help Horses and Camels Who Are Whipped, Beaten, and Abused for Tourist Rides in Egypt

secure.peta.org.uk

PETA Asia’s latest investigation in Egypt has revealed horrific abuse of horses and camels forced to haul visitors on their backs or in carriages at top tourist sites in the blistering heat. The animals are often denied access to food, water, and shade.

Eyewitnesses also observed camels being viciously beaten with sticks by men and children at the Birqash Camel Market before being sold to the tourism industry. Some are even sold for meat.
Take Action Now

If you’re planning to visit Egypt, please do not ride an animal or take a horse-drawn carriage ride. When you book your trip, ask your tour company and hotel whether they promote these rides. If they do, explain why they should stop doing so.

Animals are living, feeling beings who suffer in this industry. They give rides only because they’re compelled to. Please urge Egypt’s Minister of Tourism to end this abuse by banning the use of animals at these sites.

Sign Petition: The Government Is Paying Children To Brutally Murder Animals

recipient: Governor Kristi Noem and the South Dakota Dept. of Game, Fish and Parksmore

On April Fool’s Day, the disturbing new Nest Predator Bounty Program was launched in South Dakota, and it’s sadly not a joke.

Through the end of August, residents young and old will receive $10 for each tail of a raccoon, striped skunk, opossum, badger or red fox they turn in to the state Dept. of Game, Fish and Parks (GFP).

“Love seeing kids this excited about being outside!!” Governor Kristi Noem wrote on her Facebook page. One of the photos accompanying her post was the one above: a little girl smiling and giving a thumbs-up gesture next to a dead raccoon.

The purpose of the Nest Predator Bounty Program—which the GFP started without a public hearing—is to protect the nests of pheasants and ducks. But during a public forum on April 4, residents who opposed the program expressed their concerns, such as its negative impact on the ecosystem. One resident pointed out that human activities like using chemical fertilizers and draining wetlands is much more of a danger to pheasants and ducks than small predators.

The GFP and supporters of the Nest Predator Bounty Program say it will bring back South Dakota’s trapping tradition by getting more young people involved. But it’s the 21st century, and there are humane alternatives to trapping available that can effectively control predators.

Yes, kids (and adults) should be excited about being outside—to respect wildlife, not to destroy it. Please sign and share this petition urging Noem and the GFP to end the Nest Predator Bounty Program.

The horrendous moment a lion attacks his trainer while cruelly performing in a circus has been caught on camera and it’s really awful.

The terrifying situation was filmed by a tourist as they watched the torturous circus in Lviv, Ukraine, causing mass outrage among viewers.

In the frightening footage, the a pack of lions are being made to perform tricks in a tiny, wire-mesh cage, when one of the lion jumps up and pounces on one of the trainers.

Another lion turns on trainer Oleksiy Pinko and for a few moments, he completely disappears beneath the powerful creatures.

Frantically, Pinko tries to push the lions back with a metal rod, but one of the beasts rears up and bites him in the leg, while another locks his strong jaws around his arm.

The audience, which contained hundreds of people, including children, start to scream in horror while other trainers use water hoses and metal bars to pry the lions of Pinko who was feeling the full wrath of the big cats.

After a fearsome battle, Pinko manages to make his escape away from the angry pair and emerges limping and dripping with blood.

A witness said:

I was just grabbing my daughter and trying to run because I thought they were going to get out.

Pinko, who is apparently famous for conducting death-defying, but undeniable cruel tricks involving lions in the circus, was later rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

YouTube

Despite his injuries, Pinko made a full recovery and has been seen performing in the circus among the big cats since.

The watchers, however, seem to be and understandably more on the side of the meanly kept lions.

One said:

The use of wild animals in the circus needs to be banned.

Here’s the full shocking version:

Another added:

I’m sorry but I’m totally on the side of the lions here. It’s shocking making them try to perform.

Really scary footage.

It’s great the trainer made a full recovery, but circus’ like this should not be encouraged, especially if it involves the abusing of large wild animals.

If you force animals into captivity and force them to do things against their will, then at some point they’re going to snap…

Newspapers started to report regularly the torturing of living dogs and cats in many countries in Asia. At the other hand many newspaper report the cruelties done on farmanimals in CAFOs, mass-stalling, mass-transporting, mass-slaughterhouses.
The casus of violence done on animals are not longer hidden:
It is opened and all people could see this and are free to react.

GERMAN:
Menschen, die Tiere quälen und foltern, bringen großes Leid in die Welt, Menschen und Tieren. Das Leid, das furchtbare Leid, das Hunden und Katzen in China, Korea, Vietnam und anderen asiatischen Ländern angetan wird, wird jetzt mitgeteilt: in alle Welt hinaus getragen.
Auch Rumänien mit seinem unmenschlichen Umgang mit Hunden, die auf der Straße leben müssen, sind im Radar der Menschen. Pandabären, geschlachtet, aus reiner Gier, das wollte man verstecken: wir haben es entdeckt. Massentierhaltung in schrecklichsten Formen, Massen-Tier-Transporte und -Schlachtungen von Kühen, Kälbern, Pferden, Schweinen, Geflügel: all dies bedeutet eine große Not: für Tiere und Menschen, die empathisch sind.
Es darf kein Land, keine Nation mehr geben, die keine Tierschutzgesetze kennen, oder wenn, dann diese nicht anwenden.
Kürzlich organisierte die Regierung in Shunyi District, dass Hundebesitzer eine Chance bekamen, ihre Hunde aus einem Käfig herauszuholen, bevor sie „geschlachtet“ wurden. Diese Hunde haben geschrien vor Angst und Entsetzen. Zumal sehr viele Hunde aus den Gärten und Höfen gestohlen werden, also Besitzer haben, auch Hunde auf der Straße werden oft grausam an sich gerissen und zum Schlachten gebracht.
In einem Essay habe ich ausgeführt, wie Gewalt an Tieren zur Gewalt an Menschen führen kann, fast zwingend: http://wp.me/p3ARcp-3Nv Akte der Gewalt an Tieren – eine mögliche Täterpersönlichkeit.
MENSCHEN, die Tiere foltern, sind GEFÄHRLICH, für Mensch und Tier und die Gesellschaft, in der sie leben.

English:
People who torture animals bring great suffering into the world, to people and animals. But: The suffering, the terrible suffering, the pain of dogs and cats in China, Korea, Vietnam … is now communicated: to all the world! Living dogs and cats boiled alive: we have witnesses for this cruelties: Videos! Stealing pets from owners, torturing these poorest animals to death – we could watch all these crimes done on LIFE.
Also Romania with its vicious handling of dogs, which must live on the streets, are in the radar of the people. Little Panda-Bears, slaughtered, from pure greed, that one wanted to hide: we have it discovered. Mass-Factory and Mass-Slaughtering in the most terrible forms, transports of cows, calves, horses, pigs, poultry: all this means a great burden.
There must be no country, no nation that does not know animal rights laws, or did not apply them.

It happened recently in Shunyi District of China’s capital Beijing where customers were given the chance to pick their dog from a cage before it was slaughtered and screened in front of them. Animals are soulless things? Watch videos here if you really think so!

In an essay I have shown how violence against animals leads to violence against other humans, almost growing, almost more gruesome,
Those people had lost her empathy for life and living and the utmost bad is, that they teach their children the same by learning through expertise.

Humans who torture animals are DANGEROUS, dangerous for humans and animals and the whole society in which they live.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — UPDATE (February 16, 2019 8 a.m.) As of 8 a.m., Rosa posted bail and is no longer in custody.


UPDATE (February 16, 2019 7:15 a.m.): Elaine Rosa has been booked for one felony charge of cruelty to an animal and one misdemeanor charge of failing to provide animal care.


Elaine Rosa, who was accused of dragging a dog behind a scooter has been charged with animal abuse and neglect.

Charges were filed on Friday, February 15 by the District Attorney’s Office against Elaine Rosa for animal abuse and neglect. One felony charge and one misdemeanor charge have been filed.

Rosa faces 3 years jail time and a $20,000 fine.

Bo Koenig, Attorney for Rosa has released a statement.

“We were recently advised by law enforcement that official charges have been filed against my client. I’ve reached out to my client and we plan on cooperating with law enforcement 100 percent. She is in the process of turning herself over to the authorities this evening.”

According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Rosa was a contracted psychologist at Kern Valley State Prison beginning on Jan. 3, 2018. Her contract was terminated on Jan. 7, 2019.

Bakersfield Police say that they have begun making efforts to take her into custody for her arrest warrant.

The viral video that showed Elaine Rosa dragging a small dog behind an electric scooter in January sparked an uproar on social media. Rosa was a former employee of the Kern Valley State Prison as a contracted psychologist. Her contract was terminated on January 7.

It is unknown if the video played into her termination.

According to Bakersfield Police, Rosa was not the owner of the dog . The dog has since been returned to its owner and received medical treatment.

District Attorney Cynthia Zimmer announced charges were filed today against Elaine Rosa for animal abuse and neglect. One felony charge of PC 597(b) and one misdemeanor charge of PC 597.1(a) have been filed. The felony carries a maximum term of 3 years jail and a $20,000 fine.

Sign Petition: The Sport Of “Coyote Whacking” Is Even More Gruesome Than It Sounds — And It’s Legal!

by: Care2 Team
recipient: Wyoming Legislators

We wish this was a twisted joke. Unfortunately, there really are people who participate in a sport called “Coyote Whacking” and they can continue to legally do so. Wyoming legislators had an opportunity to outlaw it but they didn’t even bother looking at the bill, let alone passing it.

Sign on if you want those legislators to pass a bill outlawing this cruel “sport”.The practice is actually more gruesome than it sounds. People chase coyotes on snowmobiles until they are too tired to run, then they run the coyote over with their snowmobile again and again. It’s truly upsetting to know that there are people who think torturing and murdering an animal in this way is fun.

But it gets worse. After they have tortured and killed these innocent coyotes, they pick the lifeless coyotes up by the tail and slam them against the snow mobile one more time, just to celebrate their own inhumanity. Then, they post smiling photos of themselves to their social media accounts; these people are actually proud of their abusive behavior.

But worst of all is that Wyoming legislators had the chance to outlaw this horrible sport and they literally couldn’t even be bothered to read the bill.

Please sign the petition to tell those legislators that you find this negligence despicible and they must outlaw the practice immediately.

Petition: chargers need to be laid!

change.org

Kirby Silverberg started this petition to RCMP – Grande Prairie (Sexsmith – Alberta)
Problem
Over the weekend a video surfaced online of two boys beating a coyote to death. Laughing while they slam the still alive animal against their snowmobile. The videos is so disturbing to watch. The boys taunt the animal as they clearly take pleasure in ending its life. The RCMP is undecided as to whether or not charges will be laid. This shouldn’t be a question of if. This inhuman, sociopathic behaviour needs to be punished. Sign of you agree.

Solution
Charge the individuals responsible.

Personal story
Something needs to be done. These acts of violence against a defenceless animal cannot be tolerated.

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

sosvox.org
9,305 people signed. Let’s get to 20,000!
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.

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

thepetitionsite.com
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
