China: this is how the leather mafia works



Do you know what is made of the by-product dog? Breeds like Great Dane, St. Bernard and Rottweiler are very popular in the production of fur and leather in China! These breeds are considered the most economical for the dog meat trade and their coat and skin are a byproduct of the dog meat trade! Millions of animals die cruelly for fashion and are even skinned alive!



It is known that there are no penalties for the mistreatment of animals in China. This video released by PETA shows what some people are capable of in this case. The dogs are brutally slain, slashed, gutted and skinned.

Even leather can come from dogs and cats, even though they are declared as leather by cow or lamb.
Leather is another byproduct of the dog meat industry.
The dogs are packed with hooks. Before the throat is slit, it will remove the skin. The skin is then hung to dry before tanning. On average, such a company creates 200 dogs every day. The leather is used to make gloves, belts and even bags.

China is the number one import country when it comes to fur or leather. The reason is obvious: because of the lack of animal welfare laws, it is legal to keep and slaughter animals under unworthy conditions, which in turn saves costs and thus moves traders to buy. On the other hand, the offer is always tied to demand.


After a dog is killed and skinned, the coat is sold at wholesale prices to apparel factories.
A factory owner was quoted as saying, “If the garments are not sold within six months, send me an email and I can then make new labels that are mink.”

Did you know that there is currently no European labeling framework for leather goods other except footwear?
To date, leather is poorly protected in most parts of Europe. And if it comes from China, it is quite possible that you are wearing dog or cat skin. Mostly (and at best) the goods are labeled ‘Gaewolf’, Gae is Korean and means dog.

Believe it or not, UGG boots labeled “Made in China” and “Made in Vietnam” are real. For years, authentic UGG products have been made by Deckers Outdoor Corporation, which has factories in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, and the United States. If the label says the shoes are made in New Zealand or Australia, it should be a fake.


There are protests against these cruel machinations worldwide. And as long as fur, whether genuine or artificial fur is asked and worn, nothing will change.

My comment:  I have never seen so many people wearing fur collars in my city as in this winter. But in Germany there are no more fur farms, so I wondered, where did it come from?
Now I know ….

There are many who think we just need to educate, inform, show the awful videos of the Dachau farms for fur, and we can convince the masses not to buy fur. We did that for years, we did it. Petitions, demos, undercover videos, reports on television and even conservative newspapers have been reporting on the cruel farms. Business is booming unchanged.

According to a study by the University of Ravensburg (Germany)  in 2017, a third of respondents said it was informed about the suffering of fur animals, but still wears fur because it is warm, natural and shick!!

The mass of 7 billion people we will not convince, and I don`t  think the demand for fur comes because of not knowing, because of missing information.

We should try to put more pressure on politicians and we have to create more cooperation with instances that come from “above” and determine the purchase decision, for example the fashion industry, campaigns with celebrities …etc..
As well as from “above” – and over one night– came the smoking ban in public rooms, restaurants, and workplaces. The tobacco industry immediately suffered then and still heavy losses, and it was perhaps stronger than the fur industry. After this ban, smoking generally fell sharply.

As long as the sale of fur is not prohibited by law or as long as the EU does not introduce a 200% luxury tax on fur import, the fur will continue to be sold …. Consumers never change … the laws have to change …

Best regards, Venus

England: Happy Mothers Day !


………… Not such for Calves.


mother day calf


Male calves are a by product of the dairy industry.

Cows have to be in calf to continually produce milk.

Only females are kept in order to be continually impregnated to produce more calves and thus milk for human consumption.

The males are either slaughtered or kept for a very short time – further fattening or veal production.

Boycott dairy and think about these videos each time you consume cows milk.

Below 2018 – Live calves (from Scotland) being exported by the Dutchman ‘Onderwater’ out of Ramsgate, England – protester footage here.

Onderwater runs a business associated with the export of live animals from the UK.  He operates a bathtub ship named the ‘Joline’ which the English AR consider is not worthy enough to operate cross Channel sailings – he runs the Joline between Ramsgate in England and Calais in France.



The Joline is an ex Soviet battle tank carrying vessel which was used on rivers; not as a cross Channel transporter carrier. See the video above of the Joline and decide if you consider it is fit for carrying any live animal transporters.

Florida: Family day with rape lessons!





The University of Florida held an event called “Family Day at the Dairy Farm” where – among other horrors – they taught kids how to sexually inseminate dairy cows.

“That’s the vagina;
Now put that down in there and push it in.”
says  the “educator” to the child!


It is not enough that children grow up with lies and fairy tales about the lives of animals, which are treated only as dairy machines on farms. Now the Milchmafia tries to justify the children the rape of the cattle as necessary practice and therefore the farmer trivializes this criminal practice, as naturally and without problems.

künstliche besammungjpg

But as soon as one speaks of rape in animals public, one is a misanthrope. Rape is a word for humans, not for animals.  As appropriate, carcass is a word for animals and corpses for human animals.

And with this language we concretize a position of power and an inequality. That is the language of the rulers.

I adopt the definition of rape from the about Rape:

“Illegal sexual intercourse or any other form of sexual penetration of the vagina, anus or mouth, with or without violence, through a sexual organ or other body part or an object without the victim’s consent”.

In the special case of dairy cows, these criminal practices follow after the rape:

In insemination centers, bulls are usually masturbated manually by a farmer twice a week, with 2 or 3 ejaculates per collection day. All forms of dairy farming involve the forced feeding of cows. In this procedure, a person puts his arm deep into the rectum of the cow to determine the location of the uterus and then drive a seed-filled instrument into her vagina.

1) Year after year, to ensure uninterrupted milk production, the cows are forced into an endless cycle of pregnancy and childbirth, and their newborn calves are taken away from them. Mother cow and calf are crying after being separated. 21 million male calves are killed worldwide every year. They are considered “waste products” of the dairy industry.

Kalb in Traktorjpg

2) Dairy cows are forced into slavery to produce milk for humans throughout their lives. They have no freedom.


3) After only 4 to 6 years, the dairy cows are exhausted from the constant forced milk production. Often they are already weak and ill when transported to the slaughterhouse, traumatic to these docile animals. Under normal circumstances – without exploitation and slaughterhouse – cows can become at least 25 years old.

Parents! Tell your children the truth:

Today’s milk production is a story of cruel human barbarism. These cruelties only happen because consumers demand milk and dairy products whose devastating effects on human health have been substantiated by scientific studies.

Whenever we say humans are very different from animals, and that rape, suffering, slavery, and torture in the animal factories do not have the same weight as they do for humans – even though we all have similar brain structures and physiological mechanisms – we do it to reassure our conscience and to justify our complicity in these criminals’ practices.

Animals are not property, no objects and no slaves, machines or products.

Say that to your children!

My best regards to all, Venus



MeatOut 2019 Was a Huge Success!


MeatOut 2019 Was a Huge Success!

Posted by Katie Valentine | March 28, 2019

MeatOut 2019 Was a Huge Success!

Image Credit:

On March 20, MeatOut celebrated its 35th, and perhaps most successful, year.

MeatOut is an annual international campaign supported by the non-profit organization Compassion Over Killing. The event encourages people to explore vegan eating and learn about the benefits of a plant-based diet on personal health, the environment, and animals.

Additionally, vegan food samples are given out and restaurants are encouraged to offer vegan menu options. This year, over 100 events were held around the world by restaurants, advocates, and organizations.

MeatOut was also celebrated on social media this year. Jessica Carter, COK’s Vegan Food and Lifestyle Coach, hosted a live Facebook cooking tutorial demonstrating a variety of delicious vegan recipes, including sloppy joes, loaded tater tots, and coney dogs.

To show their support for a vegan lifestyle, social media users included the hashtag #MeatOut on their posts.

Multiple cities and one county around the U.S. declared March 20 as official MeatOut Day, including Philadelphia, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Montgomery County, MD; Takoma Park, MD; Ithaca, NY; Kent, OH; and Albuquerque and Santa Fe, NM.

COK’s Director of Outreach and Education Simone de Lima summarized MeatOut’s success in a recent press release: “MeatOut 2019 has empowered thousands to spring into action by trying vegan eating or helping others in their community to choose healthy and sustainable vegan foods — and engaging their local governments to do the same.”

MeatOut was first celebrated in 1985 and occurs on the first day of Spring every year. It has spread to over two dozen countries throughout the world, including Germany, France, Spain, and Israel, and has gained the support of numerous celebrities, including Joaquin Phoenix, Alicia Silverstone, and Bill Maher.

A Great Visitor Day So Far; and Growing All The Time.

Germany: The last horror fur farm is closed




Unfortunately, fur is still a widely used product – especially in winter you can see many people, consciously or unconsciously wearing fur products. These are associated with an incredible amount of animal suffering and just unnecessary! A large proportion of fur farms are located in the Far East, Finland and Poland – and thus in parts of countries where animal welfare laws are even less adequate than in Germany. What many do not know is that animals in Germany still suffer on a fur farm.

And in the last of its kind in the Westphalian Rahden.


letzte Pelzfarma deutschland pg

For years, we have dealt with this system, organized demonstrations and filed charges against the operator for various violations. And now we have unique and scary new pictures from the factory. Because for the first time videos were made with a drone over and within the farm, which make the cruel life of the approximately 4000 minks that are held there first hand.

letzte Farma in Deutschland

The images show how the animals must live in confined spaces in cages and grid floors – and understandably suffer from behavioral disorders! The quality of the recordings can feel the suffering of the animals formally.


Why is this possible in Germany at all?

Theoretically, the keeping of animals for fur production is still completely legal today.

However, a new law was passed in 2017, which has tightened the minimum housing conditions and so the operation of fur farms in Germany has become unprofitable.
Also, if there are economic and less animal welfare reasons, the result was after all a small success.

letzte Pelzfarma deutschlandpg
Because of this change, all other businesses in Germany closedexcept for those in Rahden. Because this was awarded a five-year transitional period, in which he could continue working as before. The year 2022 should be over in Rahden at the latest – at the sight of the video material, we hope, however, that it will be so soon! Because no animal is allowed to suffer for fur!


Today, good news reached us regarding the last mink farm in Germany in North Rhine-Westphalia Rahden! According to the latest information, the facility now seems to have finally closed the operation and thus put an end to the miserable fur production, at least in Germany!

According to the responsible veterinary office, there are no more animals in the area and no mink has to suffer more there under agonizing conditions. But even if this is a great success for the animals, millions of them around the world still have to suffer for fur production – and of course we will continue to fight against that!

My comment: Between the years 2005 and 2015, the sales of the European fur industry have almost doubled: According to the European Fur Association Fur Europe 2015, they sold just under US $ 7 billion through fur sales. In 2005 there were still 3.6 billion.

A survey by the University of Ravensburg (Germany) revealed in 2017: About one third buys real fur, although the vast majority of reports on the attitude of animals in fur farms knows.


Pelztier am Bankjpg

“I’m wearing fur. People have worn furs for thousands of years, and I do not see that they do not use this natural resource. I have a real silver fox hat. The animals are bred in Russia. She keeps nice and warm and looks super chic”,  one has written on “die Zeit” electronic newspaper

An example of unbridled cynicism towards living and feeling animal beings!
Just like hunting and mass animal husbandry, fur farming also belongs in the dustbin of civilization history.
Consider !! we live in the 21st century and there are still people with survival convictions dating from before the neolithic revolution!!.
Never heard of the dangers of anthropocentrism?
Oh, Germany, your basic education…
This debate really needs more spirit, ethics and self-responsibility.

France: Urge American Vintage to Stop Selling Angora.


Urge American Vintage to Stop Selling Angora

French clothing brand American Vintage sells jumpers made of angora, despite knowing that rabbits are commonly “live-plucked” for their soft fur – a process they endure repeatedly for two to three years before ultimately being killed.

PETA’s ground breaking exposé of the Chinese angora industry has caused demand for angora to plummet over the last few years, and hundreds of companies – such as Calvin Klein, H&M, ASOS, and Lacoste – have made the compassionate choice to ban the cruelly obtained material.


However, millions of terrified rabbits are still confined to barren cages, their fur is violently ripped out every three months, and once they’re no longer profitable, they’re killed – all to supply angora to holdout companies such as American Vintage.

Take Action

Please send a message urging American Vintage to go angora-free.



Canada: Canadian hunters want to club tens of thousands MORE baby seals to death in cull expansion.

Canadian hunters want to club tens of thousands MORE baby seals to death in cull expansion.

Following on from our recent post –

canad hunt 1


We now have further news on the seal cull in Canada – this is from the ‘Independent’ newspaper which is based in London:

flag blood 2




Hunters in Canada want to be allowed to club to death tens of thousands more baby seals each year in an expansion of their annual cull.

Hunting groups are lobbying the country’s government to approve a wider slaughter of seals and sea lions for their fur – including in a nature reserve.

Justin Trudeau

The proposals have prompted anger from animal lovers and fresh lobbying of prime minister Justin Trudeau – who already reportedly receives more correspondence on the subject than any other, even climate change.

But scientists dispute that culls help salmon and cod stocks, warning any fall in whales’ prey could lead to the giant mammals starving.

“Seals are being used as a scapegoat, just like whales were once blamed for fishery declines,” Hal Whitehead, a marine biologist from Halifax, Nova Scotia, told The Guardian

Demand for the fur plummeted after the EU in 2009 banned imports following uproar over clubbing, and hunters are now trying to compensate for lost income.

About 6,000 fishermen, mostly from Newfoundland, join the annual hunt.

Experts say a small market for seal oil exists, and seal parts are sold in Asia as an aphrodisiac.
