Fox cubs were thrown alive to hunting hounds at kennels in Herefordshire.

Secret footage has been released which appears to show live fox cubs being delivered to the kennels of the South Herefordshire Hunt before being thrown to the pack of fox hounds. The lifeless body of a cub is then seen to be dumped into a wheelie bin, before another is taken to meet the same fate.

FOXHUNTING Sickening isn’t it? These sick twisted individuals of the South Herefordshire Hunt think throwing terrified Foxcubs to packs of starving dogs, is acceptable behaviour. Time we put an end to all Foxhunting and prosecute these barbaric morons.

Police investigating the allegations have arrested five people and are examining the footage from anti-hunt activists. All five arrested people have been released on bail while officers continue their investigation.

Those responsible for this illegal killing of fox cubs must be held accountable and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

There is no place in the modern world for this so called sport. Please help me stop it and sign my petition! If enough people sign, it will put pressure on the police and Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that justice is served, and other hunts will be deterred from carrying out similar cruel practices.

Time to end the misguided belief that Foxhunting is a sport. A few deluded over priviliged fools believe that hunting a fox with a pack of ravenous hounds is sport, it isn’t it is barbaric, outdated and unnecessary

Update #515 days ago

This petition has now been sent to the West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service. They say that “The case file is currently being reviewed” for the case. So we must continue to keep up the pressure to show that prosecution of those responsible is in the public interest. Keep sharing this petition! Don’t let those fox cubs be forgotten.
Full Update

Update #39 months ago

A year on, the investigation is still ongoing. Why are the police taking so long to prosecute?

In April 2017 the South Herefordshire Hunt hired a new chair and put out their first statement about the allegations

, condemning them and saying the people implicated no longer work for the hunt group. However, those responsible still need to be prosecuted, so keep signing and sharing the PETITION

Daphne Sheldrick: Saying goodbye to the queen of the elephants

Daphne Sheldrick: Saying goodbye to the queen of the elephants

Dame Daphne Sheldrick, pioneer of elephant conservation and founder of a Kenyan orphanage that has rescued and raised more than 200 elephants, died last Thursday at age 83. In a statement, her daughter Angela Sheldrick said the cause was breast cancer.

Dame Sheldrick created the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in 1977 and named it for her husband, who had died earlier that year. David Sheldrick was the founding warden of Tsavo, Kenya’s largest national park. 60 Minutes first visited the orphanage, known as the DSWT, with correspondent Bob Simon in 2006. Simon returned to the orphanage in 2008 and reported the piece that’s in the video player above.Dame Daphne Sheldrick in 2008.

“Can you imagine an orphanage that’s a happy place? We couldn’t. But then we found one,” Simon said of the DSWT. He showed viewers around the orphanage, which is a temporary home for rehabilitating elephants who were abandoned because their mothers have died, or more likely, been killed in the bush.

“It’s a wonderful place in Kenya,” Simon told 60 Minutes Overtime in a 2011 interview. “One talks about an elephant’s memory. When we went back two years later, a few of the elephants recognized us, and came running up to us when we arrived there.”

Bob Simon at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in 2008.

Born in Kenya, Dame Sheldrick had been working with elephants for more than 50 years when Simon and a 60 Minutes crew visited her. At the time, there was a record number of orphans at the DSWT because the sale of ivory had been legalized for the first time in a decade. Dame Sheldrick told Simon that the sale of ivory directly led to elephants being killed.

“Every time ivory is auctioned legally, there’s a rise in poaching,” Dame Sheldrick said. “And we also see the correlation in the price that’s paid to the poacher for illegal ivory.”

After Simon’s second story aired, a near-total ban on commercial trade in African elephant ivory went into effect in the United States in July 2016. However, last month the Trump administration lifted an Obama-era ban on importing legally hunted elephant remains—known as trophies—from Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust today.

While speaking to Dame Sheldrick in 2008, Simon asked her to name the most extraordinary thing she’d learned about elephants.

“Their tremendous capacity for caring is, I think, perhaps the most amazing thing about them, even at a very, very young age,” she replied. “Their sort of forgiveness, unselfishness. You know, I often say, as I think I’ve said before, they have all the best attributes of us humans and not very many of the bad.”

Simon’s own experience at the DSWT seemed to have left a lasting impression on him.

“I don’t know anyone who’s spent any time with elephants who doesn’t develop a thing for elephants,” he said in 2011. “Our babies can be quite cute. [But] when you see a baby elephant, it just breaks your heart.”

Dame Sheldrick’s daughter Angela now runs the DSWT, which has grown since the last 60 Minutes report to incorporate other animal orphans, including a blind rhino named Maxwell. The organization is funded in part by a foster program that lets donors support individual animals.

Urgent Help Needed By Tomorrow, March 23rd, To Prevent Forced Killing Of Raccoons, Opossums & Coyotes In Indiana – World Animal News

The Department of Natural Resources is considering a controversial rule change that would make it mandatory for animal control specialist in Indiana to kill thousands of raccoons, possums and coyotes each year.

Currently the decision whether to exterminate or release a captured animal in the same county in which they are caught is up to the service provider, and one, in particular, is doing everything he can to keep it that way.

WAN talked with Michael Meservy, owner of advanced Pest Control in Indianapolis about how people can join his fight against the fish and wildlife policy change that would mean a death sentence to what some people sadly refer to as “nuisance” animals.

Fur free Friday New York City November 24th

CAAF
Group

Caring Activists Against Fur works with the aim of creating awareness of a very sensitive, yet often unacknowledged, issue: the fur trade industry disregards everything but profit.

Innocent furry animals are slaughtered senselessly, often by people who showcase complete disregard and lack of respect for an animal’s life. Unfortunately, these creatures do not have a voice of their own and cannot speak to defend their right. This is why Caring Activists Against Fur works to educate, engage and spread the word about the horrors of the fur trade.

The battle against the fur industry still rages on!

Mass Demonstrations Against Massacres of Strays in Bosnia

Dalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist writes:

Mass demonstrations against massacres of stray dogs in Bosnia will be held in front of the Parliamentary Assembly in Sarajevo on November 11th.

Animal rights activists, volunteers and citizens have organised this demonstration in order to show the authorities that stray dogs are not alone and that there are people who fight for their rights.

Official demands are:

The Protection and Welfare of Animals of Bosnia Herzegovina laws were ratified eight years ago. Since then the authorities of Bosnia Herzegovina have allowed many politically eligible people and companies to own public shelters for stray animals that haven’t been built, registered nor established in accordance with the laws on establishing and conditions that shelters for stray animals must fulfil in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Dogs in those illegal public shelters are not identified or registered and they are killed illegally in notorious ways. Corpses of…

Ricky Gervais Just Reiterated How He Feels About Trophy Hunting – And It’s Perfectly Scathing | One Green Planet

Aleksandra Pajda
August 28, 2017

Animal rights and environmental issues need all the publicity they can get – and we can all agree that to get it, it is seriously helpful to have some celebrities on deck. British comedian Ricky Gervais has been a long-time advocate for animals, promoting adoption, donating money, and criticizing cruel practices, all of which generate a lot of interest in and conversation around the topics. This time, he has targeted the practice of trophy hunting – and shared what he thinks about it in no uncertain terms. 

Gervais calling out trophy hunters is not a novelty, however – in a recent post on his Facebook page, he inserted a screenshot of a post on the subject written in 2015. Unfortunately, not much has changed in the matter since then and the critique Gervais made in the post still holds true today.
Captioned “My thoughts on Trophy Hunting,” the post is a reminder that the issue of this bloody practice is still very much relevant – and Gervais’s words are not at all subtle.

Gervais especially points out the controversial financial aspects of trophy hunting and underlines how hunters claiming that they “provide a service” to communities where they hunt actually just exploit impoverished communities that have no choice but to accept their offers.

Parading as conservation, trophy hunting is a cruel pseudo-sport which has a number of seriously detrimental effects, among them the harm to the overall populations of the hunted species. Curiously, killing animals in the name of conservation is something that a number of groups actually claim.

Gervais is, without a doubt, doing a great job as an animal advocate by making use of his platform in order to reach as wide an audience as possible and spread awareness and knowledge about important animal rights issues. Public figures speaking out on the matters cause not only a heightened interest in the topics but also help inform people that animal and environmental problems are something we really should think about and engage in solving. At the end of the day, it’s something we should all feel responsible for.

Watch these veterans explain why they went to Standing Rock | Grist


Watch these veterans explain why they went to Standing Rock
By Grist staff on Dec 22, 2016 2:14 pm

Chris Vickers, a former Army medic, first came across footage of the standoff at Standing Rock on Facebook. He’d been out of the Armed Forces for seven years, but he felt a duty to answer what he saw as “unconscionable violence that an over-militarized police force was willing to exert on an unarmed civilian population.”

So he dusted off his gear and joined the thousands of vets who gathered from around the country to support the anti-Dakota Access Pipeline movement in North Dakota, many of them Native themselves.

When the Army Corps of Engineers announced they would look for other pipeline routes on Dec. 4, vets like Vickers were there to stand in solidarity with the Sioux. Watch the video above to hear more from Vickers and other veterans.

Governor Orders Evacuation at Standing Rock, Tribe Calls on Army Corps to Reaffirm ‘No Forcible Removal’ | Global Justice Ecology Project


Standing Rock water protectors are responding to North Dakota governor Jack Dalrymple’s ordered to immediately evacuate the main encampment opposing the Dakota Access pipeline.

In the following video, Dallas Goldtooth from the Indigenous Environmental Network and other representatives at the Sacred Stone camp respond to the evacuation order and engage in a question and answer session.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s Chairman, Dave Archambault II, made the following statement in a press release:

“Today, Gov. Dalrymple issued an executive order calling for mandatory evacuation of all campers located on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) lands, also known as the Oceti Sakowin camp. This state executive order is a menacing action meant to cause fear, and is a blatant attempt by the state and local officials to usurp and circumvent federal authority.

The USACE has clearly stated that it does not intend to forcibly remove campers from federal property. The Governor cites harsh weather conditions and the threat to human life. As I have stated previously, the most dangerous thing we can do is force well-situated campers from their shelters and into the cold. If the true concern is for public safety than the Governor should clear the blockade and the county law enforcement should cease all use of flash grenades, high-pressure water cannons in freezing temperatures, dog kennels for temporary human jails, and any harmful weaponry against human beings.

This is a clear stretch of state emergency management authority and a further attempt to abuse and humiliate the water protectors. The State has since clarified that they won’t be deploying law enforcement to forcibly remove campers, but we are wary that this executive order will enable further human rights violations.”

The Chairman called on the Army Corps to affirm their previous statement regarding no forcible removal.

White House stays quiet after police confrontation at Standing Rock

Police in North Dakota turned tear gas, rubber bullets, and water cannons on 400 Standing Rock protesters Sunday night as temperatures dipped into the mid-20s. At least 167 protesters were injured and seven were taken to the hospital. Activists at Standing Rock and beyond are wondering why President Obama has yet to speak about the incident.

“Standing Rock is the moral center of the nation right now,” said 350.org founder Bill McKibben. “The real question is why there’s no response from the White House to the kind of abuses that would make us protest loudly if they happened abroad.”

The clash started on Sunday when about 100 protesters, who call themselves water protectors, tried to clear a police barricade from a bridge between the Standing Rock encampments and Bismarck, the nearest large city. The pair of burned out military vehicles that make up the barricade have blocked the main route to Bismarck for three weeks, forcing emergency vehicles and other traffic to take a 20-mile detour.

“Attempting to clear the road was met with police spraying people with water cannons in 26 degree weather — that’s deadly force, it’s freezing outside,” said Tara Houska, national campaigns director for Honor the Earth, in a statement. “They want to kill people for clearing a road?”

Observers from the National Lawyers Guild at the site confirmed that multiple protesters were left unconscious or bleeding and that one Native elder went into cardiac arrest. One law enforcement officer was also injured.

The Standing Rock Sioux and other groups have called on President Obama to respond to the more aggressive tactics and also to issue an executive order halting all construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

With construction on the pipeline stalled as talks between the government and the Standing Rock Sioux continue, Obama has made few comments about the standoff. In an interview earlier this month, however, he said his administration would let the situation “play out for several more weeks and determine whether or not this can be resolved in a way that I think is properly attentive to the traditions of First Americans.”

But unless either Obama or the Army Corps of Engineers acts soon, any resolution will likely come after President-elect Trump takes office. Trump has vowed to speed up the approval of energy projects. He also has between $500,000 and $1 million personally invested in the pipeline. Kelcy Warren, chief executive of Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the pipeline, contributed $100,000 to the Trump Victory Fund.

“President-elect Trump has no regard for the environment and cares even less about those of us trying to protect it.” said Kandi Mossett, an organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network. “The Obama administration, now more than ever, has to step up and either rescind the permits, call for a full Environmental Impact Statement or flat-out reject the Dakota Access Pipeline project from moving forward.”

Indiana DNR: Appeal to keep Finn the fox
by Torrey Bright · 118,178 supporters
Petition update
The outcome
Torrey Bright
Peru, IN

Jun 15, 2016 — I am only sending this update to update all the thousands who have asked..

Despite my efforts, knowledge, petition, 118,000 signatures, and fact that I already house and own an animal of the same species, whom helped me adopt and nurse Finn back to health.. The DNR ruled against me today stating that “I am not special,” that the “law is the law and I’m not changing it for you,” and stating that “I could have all the signatures in the world on my petition and it wouldn’t matter to them.”
I have to give up an animal that has done no wrong, and who knows me as his mother, all because of what’s written in an old book with no room for error or emotion.

He now is to be picked up and taken to a rehabber, who also has a fox, to be used for educational purposes. However, they refuse to tell me the location or name because “I don’t get visitation rights.” God forbid they grant me anything for doing what everyone thought was right.

For those saying to hide him or say he “ran away”, it is not an option due to the fact I will lose my other license if so. I was made a mockery of and told it didn’t matter if I have 100k people standing next to me, they wouldn’t change their stance.

No good deed should go unpunished evidentially. No one with a heart or compassion is given a second glance. No common sense is used. Someone who sits in a big office all day with no contact to wildlife itself is clearly the correct person to make the final decision right???

This petition has been closed, the case has been closed, and we have lost the battle. Thank you to everyone who tried to make a stand with us, we appreciate each one of you.

Activist Arrested for Liberating Chickens; Hundreds of Others Found Dead

 

 

Our Compass

Source Their Turn
ByDonny Moss

Kaporos, the annual chicken-swinging ritual that takes place before Yom Kippur, doesn’t start until Tuesday night, but, already, an activist has been arrested, and hundreds of chickens stacked in crates on the street have died.

Wearing a Mercy For Animals t-shirt, an activist from New Jersey was arrested on Monday for allegedly stealing chickens from a “Kaporos Center” in Brooklyn.
