The terrible camel transports in Egypt

Like all other “useful” animals, camels are also transported: to markets, slaughterhouses or racing camels for sporting events.

The animals are exposed to terrible suffering during transport. Their protection plays almost no role.

Camels are  brutally exploited as ‘racing’ camels in sport and as ‘farm animals’ for the production of milk, meat and leather.
Just like all other useful animals, camels are also in terrible conditions transported.

In addition to short-distance transports, the animals are also transported between countries by truck or ship over long distances.
Some transports take several days and some of the camels have to travel long distances on foot. International animal welfare standards are ignored.
The camels are beaten on the transporters, pulled from their trucks by the lugs, ears or tails and thrown.

Due to the brutal methods the animals suffer from bruises, bruises and open, bleeding wounds, stress and panic.
Without consideration also sick, injured, emaciated and weak animals are transported.

The animals are transported during the greatest heat.

Since 2017, Animals’ Angels has been uncovering catastrophic conditions in many countries in the Middle East and advocating changes in the camel theme internationally.
Here is the last report from Egypt:

In June, an Egyptian television station reported on the daily animal cruelty on the camel market in Birqash (Egypt) and denounced it publicly.
Then the government intervenes for the first time: animal protection posters are hung on the market according to our model and arrested several people who have dealt with violent with the camels.

The arrests have had a deterrent effect, but we know that they alone are not a means to make long-term improvements.

Our vets, Omar and Eslam, monitor the situation on the ground. Today, for the first time, traders come to them and want to know how to load the camels without violence.

There are 37 ° C!
Omar and Eslam have to treat some camels who are completely exhausted.

Overall, the mood is tense, the workers are afraid to be photographed, but at least as long as Omar and Eslam look, they do not beat the camels and accept the advice of our team.


Now we have to stay on the ball: we have to be there as often as possible so that this first spark of improvement does not go out. We are also in contact with the Ministry for a joint animal welfare project on the market.

More about our project for the camels in Egypt:

My comment: Around 6,000 BC, people in lesser populated Egypt started livestock farming.
Today they do the same thing, after 6000 years, and not just the Egyptians.
But Egypt is the country with one of the oldest civilization history, which it sells very well as a tourist attraction today.
And that is the tragic: to still sell the “pyramids” to the tourists as a wonder of the world, and not to realize that the greatest wonder for Egypt is their own society, which has still remained in horse and camel slavery, as in ancient times of the pharaohs.

Indonesian Region Pledges To End Dog Meat Trade And Save 2000 Dogs A Month.



Indonesian Region Pledges To End Dog Meat Trade And Save 2000 Dogs A Month

Dog meat trade


Officials in Indonesia have pledged to end the nation’s dog meat trade, a move which will save up to 2,000 dogs from slaughter and human consumption per month.

The regency of Karanganyar in Java pledged the action following a shocking investigation by Dog Meat Free Indonesia (DMFI), which uncovered evidence of dogs being bludgeoned and blow-torched alive in animal markets.

The victory has been welcomed by Ricky Gervais and actor Peter Egan, both of whom are celebrity ambassadors for DMFI and who thanked the head of district, Bupati Juliyatmono, for his role in the pledge.

The plan to end the horrifying trade includes closing every stall selling dog meat in the regency, as well as the creation of alternative livelihoods for those currently reliant on income from trading in dog meat.

Investigations by DMFI – a coalition between several animal protection organisations such as Change For Animals Foundation and Humane Society International – showed dogs being beaten and strung upside down to bleed out, all the while still conscious and in full view of other terrified dogs.

Campaigners are hopeful this new pledge will mark the start of a nationwide movement to tackle this dangerous and illegal trade, although they say the governor of North Sulawesi, Olly Dondokambey, refuses to act.

The province of North Sulawesi is currently central to dog and cat meat trade activity, with approximately 200 ‘extreme’ animal markets operating each day.

Dogs hung in meat markets

Wendy Higgins from Humane Society International, a DMFI coalition member group, said:

Indonesia is a popular tourist destination for millions of travellers including about 360,000 Brits each year, but the country’s natural beauty is hiding an ugly secret that many tourists will be unaware of.

Visiting local markets is often promoted by tour guides but innocent travelers could be exposing themselves to horrific scenes of animal cruelty as well as dangerous diseases like rabies.

The national government has issued a crackdown but for as long as local regions like North Sulawesi simply ignore that, the killing and the risk to tourists continues.

Although dog meat is only consumed by seven per cent of Indonesia’s entire population, the trade remains a significant threat to public health – particularly with regards to the transmission of rabies.

Rabies, a viral, and potentially fatal, disease that infects the central nervous system is a serious threat worldwide with 55,000 deaths per year – more than 50 per cent of which are in Asia, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Currently, 24 provinces in Indonesia are Rabies endemic, with those with the greatest demand for dog meat among those with the highest prevalence of the disease. According to DMFI, the North Sulawesi Province has some of the highest numbers of human deaths attributed to rabies in the country.

Despite the lack of action in North Sulawesi, the progress being made in Karanganyar and Yogyakarta is enough to give DMFI campaigners cause for hope.

In Karanganyar, every one of the estimated thirty dog meat-selling stalls throughout the regency will be closed, with the local government already hosting a meeting with the traders to announce the ban and to discuss alternative livelihood opportunities.

The Yogyakarta Provincial Government separately drafted a Mayor’s Regulation for approval, through which a ban on dog meat would be implemented.

USA: Washington State Is Moving Forward To Try and Slaughter More Wolves – Take Action to Help Stop It.


Gray wolf


Washington state is moving forward with yet another kill order to slaughter more wolves. Now the state wants to kill up to eight members of the Old Profanity Territory pack, including pups born this spring.

All this is happening at the behest of a powerful rancher grazing his cattle on prime wolf habitat — and we need your help to stop it.

Please take action today and let Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Kelly Susewind know you oppose his continued assault on these endangered wolves.

It’s likely the state will once again use aerial snipers in helicopters to gun down these wolves — at least one of which is collared — following up with on-the-ground kills of wounded animals. This asymmetrical warfare against wild creatures is sick.

Last fall they killed the pack’s breeding female and a 4-month-old pup, leaving behind only the father wolf and a pup. New wolves have joined this family unit, and more pups were born.

But in early July Washington gunned down the father wolf, and now they aim to kill as many as they can, up to eight more wolves, including the new pups.

Washington state has a long history of gunning down wolves within its borders. Since 2012 Washington has killed 23 state-endangered wolves, 19 of which were killed for the same livestock owner who is trying to eliminate the Old Profanity Territory pack.

The Center’s litigation to shut down Washington’s disgraceful kill protocol is still playing out in court. The state has no business gunning down wolves and destroying packs on public lands.

Tell Director Susewind the public demands an end to the wolf slaughter now.

The Devastating Consequences of Animal Agriculture on Earth


We all need to see this video. We only have one home, let’s protect it!

This video gives a bleak picture of how animal husbandry destroys the environment and negatively affects life on Earth.
Almost a third of the earth is used for animal husbandry.
The Amazon Rainforest is destroyed for meat production.
Wild animals lose their home, many die out.
In animal husbandry 20-30% of the total fresh water is consumed.
Fertile land turns into desert.
Animal waste pollutes the precious water and the environment.
18% of greenhouse gas emissions come from animal husbandry.
Industrial fisheries are overfishing the oceans!
We only have one planet and we all have a responsibility to protect it!
