Shocking truth: ruthless tiger trade in the EU uncovered!
Our ongoing research and recent police raids in the Czech Republic show that tiger trade  is not only an issue in Asia: The lucrative commercial trade with a highly endangered species and their parts is happening right in the centre of Europe as well!

FOUR PAWS has discovered that tiger traders operating in Europe are willing and able to sell and facilitate the transfer of tigers to Asian countries where demand for their parts for traditional medicine is causing mass cruelty and a decline of the species.

At the same time Czech Authorities made a strike against wildlife traffickers and conducted a series of raids, because of the suspicion of killing of tigers in a zoo and the possession of tiger products by the Vietnamese community. One of the target facilities of the raids belonged to a well-known circus leader.

 

FOUR PAWS research conducted in June show a meeting with this person where he proudly showed his tiger breeding facility near Prague and discussed the sale of tigers to Asia. The trader offered to sell the tigers to Asian buyers and to help facilitate the documents and transfer.

Tigers: A highly endangered species

In the 20th century the world already lost over 90 per cent of its tigers with current estimates indicating that there are only 3,900 tigers left in the wild. The relentless demand for tigers traded for their parts but also to be displayed commercially significantly contributes to this decline of the species. Legal trade facilitates illegal trade and causes a real threat to the wild tiger population.

Shockingly, tigers born in Europe in captivity can still be traded for commercial purposes like circuses or for private keeping and for photo opportunities. In some European countries you can even rent a tiger for a private party!!!

Read more about this in our official press release.

The EU should take a leading role in protecting these endangered species and ban all commercial trade ensuring tiger traders and businesses have no place in the EU!

I have signed the petition, please do it too!
Sometimes miracles happen, and it may be that a “Business” – called EU – with a thousand incompetent, disinterested and fat-paid employees, but passed a law against the criminal slave trade of these animals, at least in our own continent, Europa !!

We must not give up hope and our fight to save the rest of the tigers in the world.

Best regards, Venus

 

 

 

 

 

 

Negligent arson of a Hunter and its consequences!

The 79-year-old hunter wanted to fight in his high seat a hornet’s nest with fire – while his clothes began to burn. For him any help came too late.
Graz – A hunter is burned while trying to drive insects out of the vicinity of his high seat. According to the police from Friday, a hornet had stung the 79-year-old at his high seat in Graz.

Then he wanted to burn with a torch the hornet’s nest, which was in a doghouse under his high seat. His clothes should be on fire. The exact circumstances are still unclear. Neighbors had noticed a smoke column at 3 pm in a wooded area.

The man’s body was later found in the fire debris of high seat and doghouse.

(Translation, Venus)

Objective description of the “accident”

1)He has received the attack of a single animal and for that he wanted destroy its whole family, including its house.

2)He was on a foreign territory. The hornets had their home because they lived there. The hunter had a murderous seat there to murder other animals.

3) Fire in the forest is prohibited. Lighting the hornet’s nest could have caused a fire. Especially because there was an official warning about the heat in recent days.

4) Hornets are under protection of species, hunters not.

 
Considering these objective factors, I would comment this message as follows:

I have no moral inhibition to say that the death was the just punishment of a murderer with clear intentions.
If a murderer wants to burn a whole family because a member of these family wanted to protect its house and its family, then… I also have the right to rejoice over the fair punishment of the murderer.
