Officer Out on Bail for 40 Counts of Dog Sex Abuse Now Arrested for Child Pornography

Yet another disturbing case reveals the strong link between animal cruelty and crimes against humans.

A former police officer in Bossier City, Louisiana was arrested for possession of child pornography while out on bail for multiple acts of sexual abuse against a dog.

On April 12, Terry Yetman was booked into the Bossier Parish Jail on 31 counts of child pornography. Yetman had previously been arrested on December 20 of last year on 20 felony counts of bestiality and 24 counts of filming the sick acts with a retired police dog.

“Yetman’s second arrest for sickening abuse of the vulnerable should come as no shock to anyone involved in law enforcement or animal protection,” stated Doll Stanley, campaign director for In Defense of Animals. “Yetman’s case is a classic example of how animal abusers are a threat to the entire community. Statistics bear out the indisputable fact that acts of animal cruelty and violence to fellow humans are linked.”

An investigation was launched in August 2018 by the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit into the alleged animal abuse, during which electronic evidence of Yetman’s abuse against a Belgian Malinois was uncovered.

The day before Yetman’s arrest for child pornography, In Defense of Animals delivered a petition containing 20,000 signatures to Bossier District Attorney Schuyler Marvin calling for the rigorous prosecution and sentencing of Yetman for these crimes. The organization is also calling for animal protection training among law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

It is unclear whether Yetman was charged under state or federal child pornography laws. He faces a possible life sentence in prison for his animal abuse charges.

Yetman’s bail is currently set at $620,000 and additional charges could be filed. He is currently being held at Bossier Maximum Security Facility, and his next bond hearing is set for April 23.

USA: Michigan Judge Dishes Out Triple the Recommended Sentence in Brutal Dog Stabbing Case.

Judge Dishes Out Triple the Recommended Sentence in Brutal Dog Stabbing Case

Posted by Carly Day | April 26, 2019

A Michigan judge has sentenced an animal abuser to three to six years in prison, triple the recommended sentencing guidelines.

Judge Richard Caretti had initially accepted a plea of no contest from the accused, agreeing to a lower sentence. However, on hearing the gory details of the case, Caretti withdrew the agreement (known as a Cobb’s agreement).

“I cannot in good conscience follow the Cobb’s agreement,” said Carretti. “Any way you view this crime, it’s despicable and reprehensible. In my almost 17 years on the bench, your case is by far the worst, most deplorable example of animal cruelty I’ve ever seen. Sterling would have looked to you for love, shelter, and food. Instead, he was a victim of your unbelievable cruelty.”

County Prosecutors requested a harsher sentence, noting that the penalty for animal cruelty in Michigan had recently increased – but only after this horrific crime took place.

The crime committed by Alexander Gerth was an especially brutal one. After the Michigan Humane Society refused his request to adopt a dog named Sterling, the 23-year-old had a friend adopt the animal for him. Not long after taking possession of Sterling, Gerth viciously stabbed the dog to death and left his body lying in a local park in below-freezing temperatures.

Gerth also admitted to beating and kicking two-year-old Sterling during the short time the dog was in his care.

The case drew the attention of animal lovers across the state, who started a petition calling for the maximum sentence possible. The petition gathered more than 6,500 signatures and likely influenced those involved in prosecuting and sentencing.

County Prosecutor Eric Smith praised the longer sentence, saying it shows that “crimes of this nature will never be tolerated.”

“Sterling has brought great awareness to such a critical issue that troubles us as a society,” said Smith.

On top of the prison sentence, Gerth must cover the autopsy costs of the Michigan Humane Society and is banned from ever owning a dog again.

We thank the prosecutors and Judge Caretti for taking this devastating case of animal cruelty seriously and working to ensure that Gerth can never harm another animal.

New Call for Action
Gochang, Korea, Shut down the Illegal Dog Meat Farm located in the Livestock Farming Restricted Area!

A dog farm located next to Gochang Country Club in Gochang-gun Simwon-myeon remains in operation, despite years of complaints filed against it by the Gochang Country Club. This illegal dog farm is located within the Livestock Farming Prohibited Area and behind the dog farm is a seashore area, which connects to a walking path. It is also suspected that the dog farm is sitting on public land. But the county of Goyang continues to respond to those complaints with the same old excuses. The only way to shut down this dog farm is with a massive petition campaign. Please help by taking action now.

Germany: New McDonald’s Vegan Burger to Launch on Monday 29/4.

Germany

german vegan burger

WAV Comment – ‘McDonald’s Germany states that the burger has a “meaty taste”, despite containing no trace of animal by-products’.  As someone who eats vegan because of my ethical concerns for animal welfare; why then do I want a Vegan burger that has a ‘meaty taste’ ? – it is an alternative to meat, so why try and link it to meat ? – I dont want to suffer a ‘meaty taste’.

Under EU regulations, I guess it will soon have to be called a ‘Vegan disc’, rather than a vegan burger.  The EU specialise in wasting time on things like this; yet allow animal abusing transporters to get away with abuses scott free ! – Mark.

 

McDonald’s has announced the launch of a new vegan burger on its menu in Germany.

This will mark the first time the German franchise of the fast food chain has offered a vegan burger to its customers.

The Big Vegan TS burger consists of a patty made from soy and wheat.

It is served in a classic sesame seed bun, and contains salad, tomato, pickles and red onion.

McDonald’s Germany states that the burger has a “meaty taste”, despite containing no trace of animal by-products.

“Improving for us means that we are brave enough to try new ways,” says Philipp Wachholz, company spokesman for McDonald’s Germany.

The Big Vegan TS burger will be available in all participating McDonald’s branches across the country from Monday 29 April.

It will replace the Veggieburger TS on the main menu and the McMenu, which provides customers with the option to combine food items for special prices.

According to market research company Skopos, as of 2016, there were 1.3 million people following plant-based diets in Germany.

This equates to around 0.016 per cent of the country’s population.

The release of the vegan burger at McDonald’s Germany isn’t the first time the fast food restaurant has made plant-based options available to its customers.

Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced the launch of its first vegan-friendly Happy Meal in the UK, which the company created in partnership with the Vegetarian Society.

Why still we fight?

 

Germany

 

The web page “Netzfrauen” (Network Women) was sued by a German big game hunter who killed a big elephant in Africa,  although it was the foreign media who published his photo and not this site. We’ve often posted articles from this very informative website and we’re now really angry with those cheeky jerks who want to intimidate the site with this equally outrageous lawsuit so that in the future facts and truth about the trophy hunt remain in the dark. Here is the message:

“Dear Readers, I have been sued by a German trophy hunter and now I am going to pay a heavy fine to the state of Berlin.

If I do not pay, I go to jail!
I’ve just talked to my trophy hunt organizations and I’m ready to go to jail for the elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and rhinos, also known as the BIG5.
If I can finally stop this trophy hunt, it’s worth it.
We will continue to inform you – on behalf of all animals.

Thank you for your support.

Netzfrauen”

John Cleese: Trophy hunters who kill wild animals are „impotent“ and „inadequate“

In addition a very nice text of “Netzfrauen” to this situation:

“Incidentally, the one who points to the dirt is more dangerous here than the one who does the filth.” Kurt Tucholsky (January 9, 1890 – December 21, 1935)
Yes, this is still the case in 2019, as we always have to experience painfully.
As a large food company said:
“As long as activists are attacked in Germany and not the corporations, comes to Germany what other countries do not want.”
It is exactly like that.
No matter if you are committed to animal welfare – you will be attacked.
It does not matter if you’re campaigning for healthy foods – you’re under attack.
No matter if you are committed to human rights – you will be attacked!
It does not matter if children are committed to their future – they are attacked.
.. but never by the corporations, but by mothers and fathers, who should actually know better.
So why still fight?

It is more convenient to attack those who point out the filth instead of attacking the real culprit, quite comfortably from the couch!

This is what it looks like in 2019 … Kurt Tucholsky already recognized it then.
Look around, Germany is world champion in pay dumping, but export world champion
Germany is the largest meat producer, possible through factory farming.
Germany has protected the automotive industry for years, and now thousands are unemployed, and while the boards can record millions of euros as salaries, the victims of the “diesel gate” go out empty, that does not matter, the taxpayer likes to pay.
Does not matter if Germany is the country that invests less in education.
It does not seem to matter that nursing homes and hospitals have long since been sold to investors.
Why should we get upset … seemingly all right.
They do not need us!
But do not complain if you realize that everything is not all right!

My comment: The corrupt politicians know very well that it is not the Enlightenment people who are to be punished. The psychopaths who kill animals as trophies are the culprits. It is the epidemics of this planet, dangerous parasites that only occupy the place.
And for us to call things by their name: without the lobbying of the corrupt politicians, most of whom are also wild animal hunters, this dull gang would have no chance to continue their killings.
It is difficult to find the right words against this legalized massacre of defenseless animals. Even attaching the worst photos or words could not be enough to describe the extent of the mass killings of trophy hunters.

The defendants have not asked for donations, but we nevertheless post the account number, and we think that any donation will be an important help that the web site operator does not go to jail.

On the question “why still we fight on”, we had already borrowed the answer from Bertold Brecht: “without us they would have had it much easier”
