Again good news: hunting tower destroyed (Germany)

 

Germany

 

Received anonymously from Underground Badger Syndicate:

Whilst wandering through the Hambach Forest this morning, we noticed a brand new hunting tower had appeared right next to the tragic carcass of one that had previously been rendered unusable. It seems the local hunt scum are a little slow to pick up on the message – we will not allow you to murder the inhabitants of Hambi.

We removed the salt block used to lure the hunted towards the guns and stashed it far away. The legs of the tower were severed using some fancy new hand saws which made toppling the thing a fucking breeze.

After further dismantling the wreckage, we decided that such valuable building material was too good to be left behind, so carried away plenty of stuff to be re-appropriated in the forest occupation. That roofing material is gonna be fucking sweeet on the treehouse.

Hunt scum, be warned! We know every millimetre of this forest and we will find and destroy all your trash.

(Mood against the hunters in Munster, made at the annual “hunters meeting”, April 2019).

Agreed! Hunting is not just shit, hunting is murder!

Human baby found in the trash container

A man was shocked to discover an abandoned newborn left alone in a plastic bag in a wooded area near his home in Georgia. Police body cameras captured the moment the child was rescued.

The good Samaritan found the child, nicknamed ‘Baby India’, after investigating strange cries coming from a forest in Forsyth County, 40 miles north of Atlanta. The find immediately prompted a call to police.

Video shows astonished sheriff’s deputies apologizing to the “precious” little bundle as they delicately remove her from the plastic bag in which she was abandoned.

It is not clear how long the child was left outside, but she appears to be covered in blood and still has her umbilical cord uncut.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office shared footage of the rescue operation on Tuesday “in hopes to receive credible information on the identity of Baby India” and to “find closure in this case.”

Alan Ragetz, who found the baby, told WSB-TV he was persuaded by his daughters to investigate the crying in the woods.

“We went down, pulled it up, there was a poor little baby wrapped in a plastic bag,” he said. “She was alive, she was crying, so we figured that was a good sign.”

It remains unclear what prompted the mother to abandon her child in such a state, even though Georgia state law allows residents to leave babies up to 30 days old at a medical facility without fear of prosecution. Police say they continue to search for the mother or any of the child’s relatives.

Fortunately, after her ‘second birth’ of sorts, the newborn is now “thriving,” and has been placed in the care of the Georgia Family Department.

My comment: And then we ask ourselves how our conspecifics could throw animals into the trash if they do the same with their own children …

I see no difference in the extent of the crime when people dispose of the newborn puppies in the trash, and others do the same with a newborn child.

But our society ignores and lets the first crime go unpunished and condemns and punishes the second by law.

The offender who abandoned his child must expect a heavy sentence.
The perpetrator who abandoned animals can count on a small monetary penalty.

Human animals have rights from birth.
Non-human animals are considered as things, they have no rights, nowhere.

Dear Mark,

Today, my father Dr. Michael W. Fox is traveling to Brainerd, Minnesota, to join hundreds of other wolf advocates to testify on behalf of Project Coyote before the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in opposition to the Trump Administration’s proposal to strip all remaining federal protections for wolves across the lower 48 states (except for Mexican wolves in the Southwest).

As a veterinarian, canid ethologist, bioethicist and author of more than 40 books – including The Soul of the Wolf my father will speak to the many values of wolves. Read his testimony here.

Project Coyote Science Advisory Board Member Dr. Adrian Treves is part of a five-member peer review panel appointed by the USFWS that analyzed the proposal to delist the gray wolf. He and several other peer reviewers found the proposal “chock full of scientific errors,” stating “it looks like they decided to delist and then they compiled all the evidence that they thought supported that decision.” Read more here and here.

Talking Points:

Your comments can simply state: “I am in opposition to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s proposed rule to remove Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in the lower 48 states. I urge you to reconsider this proposed rule and to instead develop a national wolf recovery plan for wolves that reflects their intrinsic value and the myriad ecological, aesthetic, and economic benefits the species provides to our communities and ecosystems.”

For maximum impact, however, we encourage you to personalize your comments. Here are some talking points you may consider incorporating:

  •  Continuing Endangered Species Act protections for wolves is necessary for the species to fully recover. Federal protections saved gray wolves from extinction following decades of persecution – and the species is still recovering, currently occupying only a fraction of their historic range.
  • The proposed rule would transfer authority over wolves to state wildlife management agencies, which historically have shown little interest in preserving wolves. These state agencies have catered to special interest groups who seek to kill wolves for trophies or entertainment, or on the misguided belief that killing wolves protects livestock or increases deer and elk populations.
  •  Wolves are vital to healthy ecosystems. Benefits wolves provide include increasing biodiversity by keeping large herbivores such as deer from overgrazing habitats and maintaining the health of prey animals such as deer by culling the sick members from the heard, including animals suffering from Chronic Wasting Disease.
  •  The best available, peer-reviewed science demonstrates that killing wolves will not protect livestock or increase populations of game species like deer or elk. Wildlife management decisions should be based on ethics and sound science, not fear and misunderstandings.
  •  The vast majority of Americans are wildlife watchers who prefer to view wolves in their natural habitat – preserved and treated with respect. Allowing wolves to return to their historic range and thrive will provide far more benefits to our economy than allowing a tiny minority of the population to extirpate these iconic animals from our landscape.
