Sep 11, 2017 — Among a lifetime of killing countless animals for trophies, Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry was convicted in 2004 of killing a tame bear (video) in a canned hunt and bragged about it publicly calling it a hunt in the wild. He was found out and forced to give up his trophy as well as apologize publicly.
Now he is dead, at 50.

We Did It! Another Cruel Sheep Race is Canceled Thanks to a Petition | One Green Planet


Natasha Brooks
September 6, 2017

We love when public opinion is powerful enough to make serious changes for the better, for all. Petitions are an excellent way to increase public awareness of serious issues and garner support for them.

Recently, two inhumane “sheep races” were canceled due to public protest from petitions, and now, thanks to your participation, yet another sheep race has been canceled! The Llandovery Sheep Festival in Wales announced they respect people’s right to voice their viewpoints, and they will no longer be conducting sheep races at their events this September 23rd and 24th.

The woman who set up the petition, Samantha Francis, said, “Using animals for entertainment sends us back to the dark ages and is inexcusable … Sheep are not playthings here for our amusement at their expense.”

An Animal Concern Advice Line spokesperson, John Robins, said, “I am very pleased this race has been canceled …The natural habitat and behavior of sheep does not include being chased down a main street while being cheered on by a crowd of 5,000 people … Sheep racing clearly breaches animal welfare laws and is by no means the comical entertainment you might first think it is. The animals used would be terrified.”

If you are as thrilled as we are that another sheep race has been canceled, please share this good news with your friends and family!

Woohoo! Authorities Deny License Renewal for Horrific Zoo Where Over 500 Animals Died | One Green Planet


Natasha Brooks
March 7, 2017

Little makes us happier than seeing dedicated animal lovers create change in the world, and today we are over the moon with joy because a dreadful UK zoo has been denied its renewal license thanks to public pressure!

The South Lakes Safari Zoo in Dalton, Cumbria has long been under fire for its astonishing neglect, abuse, and murder of innocent animals. Captive Animals’ Protection Society (CAPS) has been a voice for the animals, diligently investigating this zoo. Reports detailing the events that occurred within its confines are some of the most gruesome and devastating we have ever heard.

Perhaps the most well-known of these tragedies is the death of zookeeper Sarah McClay, who was mauled to death by a tiger. Despite her family’s requests to not kill the tiger, the animal was euthanized with no documented reason why.

Other shocking crimes of neglect have included the electrocution of a tortoise, a squirrel monkey rotting behind a radiator, and two snow leopards who were found partially eaten! Likely suffering from zoochosis, a jaguar chewed off its own paw! Additionally, seven lion cubs and five baboons were murdered with no reason given other than there was not enough space at the zoo. A rhinoceros was crushed to death and a giraffe was killed after collapsing.

These heartbreaking reports are just the tip of the iceberg. In just four years from 2013-2016, 486 innocent animals died at South Lakes Safari Zoo. CAPS’ representatives say the crimes at the zoo are some of the absolute worst cases of animal cruelty they have seen in sixty years.

Thankfully, after CAPS’s investigations and persistent outcries from concerned animal lovers, this terrible facility has had its renewal license denied. The council describes the zoo’s owner, David Gill, as “not a fit and suitable person” to manage the facilities and properly care for the animals.

Although this is a major victory for animal rights, the fight has not ended. Gill still has the option to appeal this license denial. Although our fingers are crossed the governing council will continue to rule in favor of humane practices, we still need to keep our voices heard.

Please share this story with your friends and family and encourage them to stand up for zoo animals!

The Facts about Windex and Animal Testing: A Statement from SC Johnson

RACINE, Wis., January 6, 2017

Statement from Kelly Semrau, Senior Vice President – Global Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability:

“A misleading online petition, with a photo falsely tied to Windex, has prompted consumer questions about whether we test Windex on dogs. SC Johnson has never tested Windex on dogs. Three Windex products have been tested on animals, as required by the government, in the last 20 years.

We choose non-animal testing methods whenever possible, and to that end we are a major contributor to the Institute for In Vitro Sciences, which is dedicated to improving and increasing use of alternative test methods.

Until alternative methods are accepted globally, we must comply with the government agencies in some countries, including the U.S. EPA, that require safety testing for certain products.

Some companies skirt this issue because their materials or products are tested by suppliers or suppliers to those suppliers. So they claim that they personally do not test. But that’s deceptive. We care about transparency in our claims, so we are honest about whether the required animal testing is conducted.”

Latest round of pet horrors involving Craigslist ads
Joyel Everett @FEND
Boston, MA

Oct 27, 2016 — Its been a while since our last update, but unfortunately there is no shortage of new negative stories involving pets and Craigslist ads. Classified sites like Craigslist provide an easy avenue for criminals to acquire, abuse and/or sell pets since there is zero regulation or accountability. The company banned its “Erotic Services” category in 2009 after being sued by several state attorneys general alleging that the category “facilitated” prostitution, yet by continuing to allow the pets category to be unregulated, they are potentially facilitating crimes against helpless animals, including being an avenue for backyard breeders to sell dogs and cats which contributes to the overpopulation crisis.

Continue to tell them how you feel by signing this petition and joining our mission at http://www.FEND.ngo.

Critical Marley Update
Please Help Marley

Oct 27, 2016 — We recently became aware of an incident involving Marley the dog in Panama, where the dog was snuck up on during sleep and then bit an individual. It is worth noting that Marley was in a shelter for what we believe was about a year. He shuttered at the sight of the animal control officer. Additionally, he came from overseas and was in the war zone, as he stayed with a camp of soldiers.
Based on what we know about him and have been told, we firmly believe this scenario was caused by startle reflex. This is a common condition, and is deemed a non-aggressive one. Even humans have it, think about it, how would you react if someone woke you from a deep sleep? You would be startled right? Although it can happen in any breed, it is most common in Greyhounds and Basenji’s.
Rather than stop there, we wanted to take a further look into what may be behind this, based on Marley’s history. So we looked into dogs who have been in similar situations. We think that Marley might have hypothyroidism, as it can show in many ways, OCD behaviors, fear, startle reflex, shyness and other symptoms. Luckily there is a drug called Soloxine, that can help dogs with this condition.
Regardless of if Marley has hypothyroidism or not, it is clear he has startle reflex, and either needs his own area to sleep or it needs to be addressed head on. It is very possible that this situation was brought on by the amount of time he was in the shelter and the quality of his care in conjunction with his past. To put it simply, dogs who have been in the war zone, should not be handled like this.

It is our understanding that he is no longer in the custody of the family and that the county eagerly wants to put him down.

Sorry for the long post, but we will need your help now, read more at..
