Austria: Alcohol, shooting fun and animal cruelty!

Association Against Animal Factories (VgT) called the usual suspension practice in the hunt as illegal and criticized policy and authorities.

Pheasants are mainly exposed in eastern Austria, to serve as a living target for fun hunters a few weeks later.

This procedure is legitimized under the pretext of “stock support”.
Pheasants are thus exposed and shot down annually to preserve the natural resources? Alcohol was also in the game.

In Leitring a hunt took place last weekend. Weeks earlier – at the end of July – probably hundreds of pheasants were abandoned here.
The competent district hunter master and mayor Wolfgang Neubauer was despite repeated requests and demands not willing to call the suspension number, let alone justify this high number. Both written and oral communication, he denied several times.

David Richter from the VGT commented: “For weeks I was regularly in the morning and in the evening near the scene where there were an incredible number of pheasants, they do not know where to go, so they stay close to the place where they were exposed as children and where they get the fattening feed provided.
These animals are completely helpless and disoriented.
It makes me sad and furious to watch these tame abandoned animals just waiting to be frightened and shot down. Only very few will be able to survive the hunts. “

Even for those animals that are still alive after the end of the hunting season (31.12.), The chances of survival are poor. Natural death or perishing on the roads decimate the stocks – so far, shooting off large populations of pre-winter populations does not make sense.
“Unless things change, this torture practice will start all over again in July 2020!” complains David Richter.

Not a single egg laid!

The female pheasants are exposed in a few weeks and shot at the age of about 8 months. The pretext of exposure of pheasants is the support. But the animals are killed without having laid a single egg. So it is probably obvious that this legal legitimacy serves only as an excuse to live out the shooting fun!

David Richter himself was on a hunt on Nov. 3 to document how hunting for pheasants proceeds.

“Hunters go screaming and with sticks through the undergrowth, the hunting dogs run around freely, the startled animals try to escape, abandoned ducks and pheasants and rabbits are shot down and thrown into the accompanying trailer.
With it: plenty of beer bottles to increase the shooting fun.
I could hear and see a hunter shoot from a moving car.
An incredible number of shots were fired and, according to my estimate, 50 pheasants were shot dead. In the previous year there were about 5 hunting dates, which means that the next hunts will follow soon and I must continue watching the dying of these pitiful creatures. “

The VGT demands on behalf of most of the population the end of the arbitrary exposure and mass firing of pheasants. A petition to the state parliament is in progress.

My comment: We have to make that clear right from the beginning: the aim of the hunt is the execution. What are the real reasons for the action of the hunters? to kill.

Today, hunting is certainly a pure form of terror tolerated by our society: the terror of hunters against animals!

In the Stone Age, they went hunting, because they were dependent on it as a source of food. This is no longer the case today, so the argument no longer applies.

Anyone who always has to cling to past and traditions should think about enslavement and witch burning. Was it also earlier, but was not right then, it is not today and is abolished in a civilized society.

The hunters in Germany are a very, very small minority of 0.4% of the population.
Even pedophiles are even more common with 1%!!

And nevertheless!
The heavily armed execution unit thinks it could do and leave what it wants in the forest.
And everyone who disagrees is intimidated by force of arms.

These times are finally over!

There is no more green ideology, the arguments of the forest killers are out, the majority of the population wants the hunt dead and refuses to recognize animal cruelty and terror in the forest as the right of a miserable, puny minority.
Hunters!
You have long revealed your ugly face of mendacity.
Shoot yourself and your stupid lackeys in politics too.

It`s time to hunt the hunters 2jpg

Italy: the truth about the buffalo industry

Animal Equality Italy has released a new investigation which documents the horrors of buffalo mozzarella production in Northern Italy.

Italy

THE DETAILS: In addition to the exclusive images shot by our investigators, Animal Equality has collected testimonials of people who can, first-hand, report on the conditions of these farms, farms where almost half a million buffaloes are bred every year. Interviewing Italian personalities, such as journalist Giulia Innocenzi and former parliamentarian Paolo Bernini, help paint the picture of neglect on these farms, where numerous parliamentary inspections documented the illegal sewage spills in the Caserta area.

The images collected by Animal Equality are coupled with videos fromFour Paws International”, a German organization for the protection of animals that has conducted several investigations in farms for the production of buffalo mozzarella in Campania.

SHOCKING IMAGES: The up-until-now unpublished footage and pictures collected by Animal Equality investigators leave no room for doubt. The videos clearly show: Animals covered in mud and feces up to their knees Buffaloes covered with flies and forced to live alongside bodies of dead animals. A corpse of buffalo clumsily hidden under straw and feces Ill-treatment of buffaloes and degraded sanitary living conditions. Baby male buffalos abandoned to die of hunger and thirst after being torn from their mothers.


NON-COMPLIANT: Our investigators were also able to document the crumbling conditions of the farm and non-compliant treatment from a veterinary and hygienic-sanitary standpoint. For example, we found unauthorized workers who, without veterinary supervision and hygienic precautions, administering drugs to the animals.

DEVASTATING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: The production of buffalo mozzarella has a very strong environmental impact on the surrounding area, with cases of disastrous spills of waste directly into nearby waterways. Thanks to the images of former parliamentarian Paolo Bernini, we were able to document illegal spills of sewage in the province of Naples and Caserta. In the video, you can see streams of sewage that end up in the surrounding lands and then into the drinkable water table – slurry obviously untreated.

Nobody should hear the roar of the “garbage calves”

“Cimitieri dei bufali” buffalo cemeteries – are the name of these gruesome sites, they are testimonies of almost everyday animal suffering in this part of Europe.
Most are only a few days old, male buffalo calves. Because they do not give milk and their slightly wild-tasting meat so far hardly anyone would like to eat, the farmers have no interest in the rearing.
Then simply not feeding the superfluous male animals is a “widespread practice”.
Growing the calves with breast milk or liquefied milk powder every day is not profitable from a purely business perspective.

So that no one can hear the roar of the hungry “garbage calves”, their mouths will be tied. Some farmers even drown the animals in manure. The carcasses often land in a nearby river, where they are sometimes driven into the sea.

WHAT COMES NEXT: In Italy, more effective controls, specific laws and concrete actions by institutions are needed to protect animals, the territory and the public’s health. It is up to us to do everything in our power to stop these cruelties. Please boycott these products and help us end this market of suffering. And share this post – everyone must know the truth.

My comment: 47 million kilograms “Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP” – buffalo mozzarella in short – were produced in Italy in 2017.

The Italian investigative journalist Giulia Innocenzi has made inquiries and reported such catastrophic conditions in public service broadcasting in Italy.

She has discovered that some breeders simply let their animals die after giving birth – thus saving their food for the first few days of life and about 20 euros for slaughtering in the slaughterhouse. Other breeders kill the baby buffalo with a hammer themselves or throw them with legs tied together and alive into rivers or lakes, so that the animals drown.

Even the life-saving female calves have no nice life ahead of them.

Often the boxes are so small that the buffaloes can not even turn around. They are tied to the ground where urine and excrement accumulate and they are raised with milk substitutes.
In addition, the animals are injected with the hormone oxytocin, which is supposed to help overcome the pain of separation.

All this is known and these terrifying facts have been exposed to the public several times. But as we have often said, the consumers (and polluters of this suffering) do not want to know about this reality, because that is the most effective way of taking no responsibility.

Most people intentionally ignore the suffering of farm animals; the meat and milk mafia with the help of the media and their lobbyists has generated this indifference so that it can continue to exist.

As soon as we empathize with animal suffering and stop eating animals, this fascist system with its life-disdaining ideology also ceases to exist.
