England – Moo Free May.

We have recently produced a separate post on a new ‘human milk’ from Sweden which is hitting the UK big time in a brand new advertising campaign – ‘milk’ which is great for human consumption, whilst quite rightly leaving cows milk to go exactly where it should go – feeding young baby cows rather than feeding humans.

Here is a link to this post –

Following on from the great success to the campaign in 2018, Viva ! are now doing a ‘Moo Free May’ for this year.

We (Viva !) gave away around 500 cappuccinos per event and 400 “Everyone’s Going Dairy-Free” guides to provide people with all the support they need to help make the simple switch to plant-based alternatives.

Many people were unaware of how many different dairy milk alternatives there are available in high-street coffee shops or how delicious they really are! Some claimed that our Viva!ccino was better than their usual Starbucks coffee, with many claiming the oat milk we used was far creamier than cow’s milk.

Largest Pangolin-Scale Shipment Ever Seized Contains Parts from 36,000 Dead Animals.

We have dealt recently on this site with the situation of Pangolin being used in traditional Chinese medicine:

Well here is some of the latest news regarding the very endangered Pangolin:

Largest Pangolin-Scale Shipment Ever Seized Contains Parts from 36,000 Dead Animals

Posted by Natalia Chung | April 10, 2019

In what is being called the largest seizure of its kind in a shipment worldwide, 14,000 tons of scales from an estimated 36,000 pangolins were discovered in Singapore last week.

Custom officials stated they inspected a 40-foot container on its way from Singapore to Nigeria. They not only found an estimated 37.8 million dollars worth of pangolin scales but also 180 kilograms (around 400 pounds) of cut-up and carved elephant ivory.

“If we don’t stop the illegal wildlife trade, pangolins face the risk of going extinct,” said Paul Thomson, an official with the Pangolin Specialist Group, an organization belonging to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, in a statement to the New York Times.

The pangolin is considered to be one of the most trafficked animals in the world. Their bodies are boiled to remove their scales. Their meat, falsely believed to contain healing properties, is used in traditional Chinese medicine.

In 2016, 186 countries party to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wildlife Fauna and Flora agreed to ban the trade of all eight species of pangolin. At the time, the largest seizure of these animals ever discovered was just five tons.

In 2018, shocking footage from World Animal Protection and Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit went viral, revealing the barbaric nature of the pangolin trade. In the video, a poor animal is smoked out of their hiding place, viciously beaten in the head with a machete, and thrown, possibly still alive, into boiling water to remove the scales.

The trade isn’t showing signs of slowing down, despite additional protections. In February this year, 30 tons of pangolin meat was seized in Malaysia and, in the same month, a nine-ton shipment of pangolin scales and a thousand elephant tusks were intercepted in Hong Kong.

Pangolin trafficking is horrifying and devastating. It’s reported this poor animal will likely go extinct before people on a large scale realize they exist.

We must raise awareness for this magnificent creature of nature, pass stronger protections, and enforce them to the fullest extent of the law if we hope to bring pangolins back from the brink of extinction.

Animal torturers as bird food!




A Florida man has been attacked and killed by a close relative of the emu, the cassowary, a human-sized flightless bird feared for its huge claws and swift powerful movements. The man was reportedly a breeder of the exotic birds.

The cassowary, which is native to Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia, has been blamed for a vicious attack on its owner, a 75-year-old farmer named Marvin Hajos in Gainesville, Florida. According to the Alachua County Fire Rescue Department, the heaviy built bird made good use of its killer claws, which can grow up to four inches (10cm) long, when it pounced on its elderly owner.

Vogel cass attackiert seinen Züchter

Deputy Chief Jeff Taylor told the Gainesville Sun that the bird’s attack was swift and ruthless, and apparently happened after Hajos fell to the ground. It likely took the bird, which can run at speeds of up to 31mph (50kph), mere seconds to close in on its prey and tear him to pieces.

“My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell. When he fell, he was attacked,Taylor said.


Upon being called to the scene on Friday, rescuers rushed Hajos to hospital but he could not be saved and succumbed to his injuries shortly afterwards.

The fate of the murderous bird is unclear. For the time being, it has been isolated on a private property, according to the sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Brett Rhodenizer, who called the clash between the man and the bird a “tragic accident.”

Cassowaries, which are known as “the most dangerous bird in the world” have attacked people before and are understood to pose a significant danger to both humans and pets. However, while there have been multiple reports of people getting injured by the bird, there has been only one known fatality which dates back to 1926, and it was not entirely unprovoked. Philipp McLean, 16, was killed by a cassowary after he hit the bird with his horse’s bridle for attacking his dog. In the ensuing chase, the boy tripped and fell, and the bird sliced his neck with its sharp claws.

The largest cassowary species can stand up to 1.2-1.7 meters (5.6 feet) in height and weigh up to 76kg (167 pounds). Female cassowaries are bigger and taller than males. A special permission is needed to own cassowaries in the US, which mandates that owners must have “substantial experience” in handling the birds and keep them caged!!!


My comment: For years, the “gentleman” has abused the wild, proud Cassowaries as a slave in captivity.
With the consent and special permission of the US state accomplices.
The opportunity to take revenge against one’s own animal abuser does not come every day and does not have any sacrifice.
Until the senility comes as an accomplice, and hoop! the pest is eliminated on the ground.
And, how is it with the criminal liability, if we are glad that the slave Cassowaries has torn down his torturer? Hopefully, we will be allowed to have our opinion unpunished, right?

My best regards to all, Venus

Big Time Animal Torturer Nally comes up for parole in April of 2021. Please Take Action To Stop This – Read On.



Call to Action: Your Voice is Important

by Stacey

By YeloDoggie, C.A. Wulff

When I think back to the times when I’ve been strongly motivated to advocate for animals, I find that they coincide with particular stories of animal abuse in the news. Stories that hit me in the gut. My current project is no different. For it to be successful, I need to make a lot of noise and to reach a lot of people. To do this, I need your help: the help of other advocates, animal rescues, and animal lovers. Today I am going to give you the opportunity and a clear path to help me and make a difference.

In 2011, I covered a story out of West Virginia for Pet Pardons News. It was about a young man, Jeffrey A. Nally, who’d been arrested for obtaining animals from “Free to Good Home” ads and then torturing the animals to death. Many of the victims were puppies. Police found the remains of 29 dogs and a cat on his property. If you want to read more about the details of the case, you can do so HERE. (Be warned, it’s gruesome). The case had a prosecutor who really cared. He worked hard to be the voice for Nally’s helpless and innocent victims, and was able to have the man sentenced to 10-45 years in prison. That’s almost unheard of.

Nally comes up for parole in April of 2021.

You may not know this, but psychiatric and humane professionals agree: animal abusers are five times more likely to move on to commit other violent crimes like assault and murder. In Jeff Nally’s case, he already has other violent crimes on his record, and given the fact that he’s been quoted as saying, “Killing dogs makes me feel good,”

I think you’ll agree with me that the world is a safer place if he remains behind bars and serves his entire sentence.

That’s why I’m putting out this CALL TO ACTION.

  1. Sign the petitionI’ve started on Change.organd then share it via your social media.
  2.  Write a letter to the WV  Division of Corrections parole board asking them to deny Jeffrey Nally early parole.

You should address your letter to “Honorable Members of the Parole Board“. Tell them you’d like for them to deny parole for Jeffrey A. Nally, Offender #3507601.

Ask that Nally  be given a “set-off” and be required to serve his full sentence. Tell the parole board why you think Nally is a danger to society, and how you feel about his cruel crimes. Sign your letter and mail it to:

Parole Board
WV Division of Corrections
1356 Hansford St. Suite B
Charleston, WV 25301

Neither the offender nor his attorney will see your letter — only the parole board. Personal letters carry the most weight with the parole board, but if you need help, send me an email and I will provide you with a letter you can sign and mail.

* Alternately, please click HERE for three sample letters targeting the parole board, which need to be  modified/personalized for greatest impact.

3. Make a donation to the GoFundMe that I’ve set up for this project. Donations will be used to purchase pre-printed postcards to the parole board. The postcards will be provided to individuals and groups to share with others to sign and mail in. If there is enough in the GoFundMe, the remainder will be used for postage to mail the postcards.

4. If you are an individual or a member of a group who wants postcards to pass out, please send me an email with your mailing address and the number of postcards you think you’d be able to get others to sign and mail.

5. If you are an official of a rescue or humane group who updates your members with emails or a newsletter, I will provide you with an article upon request.

6. If you are a teacher who would like me to speak to your class about this campaign and advocating for animals, contact me.

Egypt: animal slaves for the pyramid tourism


ägypten x


Tourists from all over the world flock to Egypt to marvel at the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Saqqara’s ancient burial site, and Luxor’s royal tombs, but these sites have a violent side in plain view.

_great-pyramid_of Giza

PETA Asia’s latest investigation in Egypt has revealed horrific abuse of horses and camels forced to haul visitors on their backs or in carriages at the top tourist sites in the blistering heat without access to food, water, or shade. At the notorious Birqash Camel Market, which supplies camels to some of the tourist spots, animals were severely beaten with sticks.


Sweltering Heat

Animals at these sites are forced to wait for the next paying customer in the scorching sun without access to food, water, or shade.

No-shade-or-water Ägypten

They are given no breaks and are beaten and whipped into giving endless rides in the heat, even as their knees buckle and they collapse.

Beaten Until They Drop

Handlers viciously beat animals who are simply too exhausted to go on. Workers in Giza were seen continuously beating a horse who had collapsed while being forced to haul a tourist in a carriage. They did not stop beating her until she finally managed to get back up. Eyewitnesses report that she was quickly put back to work even though she had been severely injured by the fall.

Eyewitnesses also observed screaming camels who were viciously beaten with sticks by men and children at the Birqash Camel Market before being sold to the tourism industry. Some camels are even sold to the meat industry.

Beatings1 Ägypten1.jpgMany of the animals’ faces were bloody.


Injured, Bleeding, and in Pain

Many horses used for rides in Giza and Luxor were seen with painful, bloody wounds yet were forced to continue to cart tourists around.

Weak Animals Are Slaughtered for Meat

Once the camels sold at the Birqash market are no longer able to give rides around the Giza and Saqqara pyramids, they’re returned to the market to be sent for slaughter.

Tourists who pay to go for a ride are keeping these operations in business. If you’re planning to visit Egypt, please never ride an animal. When you book your trip, ask your tour company and hotel if they promote these rides.  As PETA Asia’s investigative footage shows, visitors who choose to ride one of these animals are directly responsible for their pain and misery.

Please sign the petition:

My comment: Not only the pyramids of Giza (still today and after 4590 Years) are a “world wonder”. A cruel “wonder” is the fact that even today animals are treated like the people who built these wonders at that time.
We are almost 2020 years after Christ and animal slavery remains a human instrument of domination.

The animal as “commodity”: a slavery that never ends. By the way, Egypt is not the only country that enslaves and exploits animals for tourism. Recently we reported from Greece and reported similar criminal practices (
Searching the Internet for the seven “wonders” of the world, one learns that all the other six “miracles” no longer exist, they are destroyed. Only the slavery of animals, the shameful sovereignty of the human species, has survived the millennium and still exists today.
