PETITION TARGET: Greg Clark, British Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy

In a devastating move for animals, British Secretary of State Greg Clark has approved the application of a new puppy and ferret farm that could sell more than a thousand animals a year to be sliced open, infected with disease or slowly poisoned to death at cruel medical labs.

Lobbyist 1

If the plan continues, notorious lab animal breeder B&K Universal — a division of global company Marshall Farms — will open a facility in East Yorkshire, England that would house hundreds of beagles and ferrets at a time.

B&K’s application has been rejected twice already due to activist outcry.

We must keep speaking out to stop this cruel breeding facility from ever being built.

Along with the gruesome physical wounds, dogs used for vivisection — usually beagles — endure intense isolation, kept in tiny, barren metal cages with no social interaction. They become depressed or literally go crazy from both the abuse and the loneliness. When the dogs are no longer “useful,” they are killed and tossed like trash.

Instead of sending more dogs to their death, the UK government must seek effective, cruelty free alternatives to animal testing.

Sign this petition urging Secretary of State Greg Clark to immediately reverse his decision and stop all plans for this cruel farm to move forward.

Zimbabwe ships live elephants to wildlife parks in China.

Zimbabwe ships live elephants to wildlife parks in China

Wildlife advocates said the animals, which were being readied for shipment on Friday night, were unsuitable for live export

More than 30 wild elephants were being readied on Friday evening for an airlift from Zimbabwe to captivity in China, according to wildlife advocates.

The founder of Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, Johnny Rodrigues, said on Friday that their plane was still at Victoria Falls airport because officials could not find scales big enough to weigh the animals, which were confined inside heavy crates.

But once that was accomplished, he added, “they’re gone”. Some of the elephants are reportedly as young as three years of age.

Illegal trafficking of baby elephants to China and Dubai for tourism must be stopped, say activists

An investigator has called on the international body that polices trade in wildlife to crack down on the illegal trafficking of young elephants across borders in south-east Asia.

Secretive agents in Laos are sending dozens of animals each year across the country’s land border with China and fly others to the Middle East, earning up to £230,000 each, according to film-maker Karl Ammann.

The grisly racket – filmed for the first time by the investigative documentary maker – involves elephants being sold into slavery in circuses, zoos and “safari parks”, earning owners huge sums from paying spectators.

Mr President: Selling wild-caught baby elephants to China is just plain evil

 

As another shipment of wild-caught baby elephants from Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe jets out of Victoria Falls airport on Ethiopian Airlines to zoos and private collections in China, it’s surely time to call this for what it is: Just plain evil.

This is not a conservation or ‘sustainable utilisation’ issue – the removal of this quantity of elephants will certainly not impact significantly on wild elephant populations, or alleviate the claimed pressure from ‘too many’ elephants on vegetation in Hwange. This is also not about what is permissible under CITES regulations.

The next victims: polar bears in Russia

Because of an “invasion of aggressive polar bears” the authorities have declared a state of emergency on the Russian twin island Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic Ocean.

Dozens of bears had penetrated into residential buildings and public buildings, it was said on Saturday as a reason. Regional authorities issued an appeal for help. A delegation of experts wanted to make their way to the island with its approximately 3000 inhabitants, on which there are Russian Air Force and air defense troops.

A permit to shoot the bears was initially not granted. Polar bears belong to the endangered species and may not be killed in Russia. However, the regional authorities responsible for Novaya Zemlya in Arkhangelsk said that if all other means fail, the shooting of animals can no longer be ruled out.

A local report to the regional authorities said that since last December, 52 polar bears have regularly turned up in Beluschja Guba, the island’s main settlement.

Some of them attacked people (!!) Parents are afraid to let their children go to kindergarten or to school. Some bears would “chase people down,” (!!!) said local authority chief, Shiganscha Musin. He has lived on the island since 1983, but he has never experienced an invasion of so many bears.

The accelerated melting of ice in the Arctic as a result of climate change causes polar bears to spend more time on land. According to an expert from the Sewertsow Institute for Ecology and Evolution in Moscow, animals are increasingly moving south to seek food on land. The reason for the invasion was that they found food in the settlements. “As there are containers of edible waste, they stop wandering.” (AFP, dpa)

My comment: When people hunt bears and kill them for fun this we call trophy hunting and it is allowed.
When bears lose their natural ram by human hand and try to survive, then we call them aggressive beasts and they have to be shot dead.
Such is the fascist belief of the human species!

Greece: Solidarity for the inmates of the Attica Park

 

Greece

 

 

– English Translation

Seven dolphins are captive at the Attica Zoological Park in Athens. They are forced to engage in frequent performances, even though it is illegal, in accordance with Article 13 of Law 4039/12.

We call for the immediate abolition of those performances and, therefore, the ban of the dolphin captivity in Greece with respective legislation.

We call on the Ministry of Rural Development and Food, the Vice Minister Ms Olympia Teligioridou and the Regional Director of Attica, Rena Dourou to take all the necessary actions to resolve our request.

Please sign the Petition: https://www.change.org/p/ban-dolphin-captivity-in-greece

Incidentally, zoo director and founder Jean Jack Lesueur has recently returned to the media for killing two rare jaguars in his zoo!!
Staff of the zoo of the Attica Zoological Park near Athens shot the two rare jaguars. The incident took place in December 2018. Accordingly, the big cats named Jenny and Spotty had escaped from their enclosure and thus had called the security guards on the scene.

The mission lasted about five minutes. The place with the escaped jaguars was surrounded. Although there was no danger to staff and visitors, the big cats were shot dead.

My comment: Again, some inmates are illegally detained. Unscrupulous slave owners working with the help of sold politicians at the expense of cheap animal entertainment.
Greece is also a victim of the EU’s criminal policy. Thanks to a corrupt government that works loyally and cooperatively with the EU and has sold out the country, the country is bankrupt.

Obviously, some animal tormentors have taken the same practices from their rulers in animal exploitation to earn money. We must try to stop this criminal trade.

Therefore: we all sign this petition!
