Austria: a normal hare hunting …

Martin Balluch (chairman of the association against animal factories, VgT) was yesterday witness to an incredible massacre of hare in northern Burgenland. He reports:

Scenes of absolute horror. You can not imagine how horrible such a hare massacre is!

A good 80 hunters change a few hectares of field and then go through in formation. There are a good 100 (!) desperate rabbits trying to escape somehow.
Uninterrupted shots are fired, animals injured everywhere, often with their legs down and bleeding faces.

And then the dogs are rushed upon, running after the rabbits, often rushing them for minutes and finally biting them.
The animals scream loudly like little human children, like my daughter, when she is afraid or feels pain.

I had to look eyes on dead rabbits as they sat desperately in the field, paralyzed in agony.
Once a hunter fired directly in our direction, as can be seen in one of the pictures.
Often enough, the hunters blasted the animals at such a distance that their shotgun loads would never kill, even if they hit the animals.

No normal-feeling person can watch such a thing without cramping the heart and soul.
Eighty hunters fire uninterruptedly, hundreds of rabbits riddled with shotgun shards, hounded and bitten by dogs.

Thousands of lead pellets then poison the floor.
God knows how many hares escaped injured to perish shortly after lead poisoning.
And the predators that eat these animals also die on the lead.

Why such a thing is tolerated by a civilized society, remains completely incomprehensible.
No! none of these rabbits are edible after this massacre. But even if, that is irrelevant.
And no! we do not have to reduce hare in Austria. They have become rare. Unless hunters fatten it, as here, all year round, and ruthlessly destroys all predators.

It’s all about the fun of shooting hundreds of living creatures. A shooting fun that can really entertain only infantile minds. There are many things wrong with hunting in Austria.

My comment: And unfortunately, not only in Austria many things are wrong, dear Martin Balluch!
Here in Germany we also have a horror result: 212.452 hare counts the hunting statistics for the hunting season 2016/17!

The heavily armed killer front in the woods and meadows kills more than 5 million animals every year – in the most cruel way.
Half million foxes, 300,000 domestic cats, around 35,000 dogs, ponies and cows on pasture, ducks, wild boar …alla from hunter`s hand.

Hunters are not just professional killers, they are also professional liars.

The claim of the hunters that they control the wild population in the forest is nothing more than an impudent, cunning attempt to positively influence public opinion, so that they can win the moral support of the population for their murderous fun.

Hunters do not regulate … Hunters do massacre.
Hunters are hang offenders, conscious and deliberately cruel.
Those who kill animals for fun lose the feeling of humanity at the same time.

Hunting leads to bestiality and dehumanization.
Hunting is and will be murder.

After 60 years of cruelty, the LPT lab is over!

Germany, Hamburg- Breaking News!!!

banane rep deutschlandpg

We recently reported on illegal practices against dogs, cats, and monkeys in the LPT lab near Hamburg (https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2019/10/18/germany-lpt-labor-concentration-camp-for-animals/)

After exposure by SOKO animal welfare of massive breaches of law, animal cruelty and the suspicion of fraud in the animal testing laboratories of the Hamburg LPT Group and the largest protests against animal testing in German history, the laboratory for monkeys, dogs and cats in Mienenbüttel near Harburg is closing .

After completion of a large monkey study by Merck, the laboratory is to be sealed. This would end almost 60 years of atrocities in this place. Currently, the Animal Testing Laboratory is making all the remaining monkeys into a wholesaler in the Netherlands. The fate of the other animals is unclear.

SOKO Animal Protection, Cruelty Free International, the Hamburg Animal Welfare Association and an alliance that has also been joined by numerous animal protection associations of the German Animal Welfare Association, demand the transfer of the remaining animals to the animal welfare. “There is a place for every animal, and the civilian population will not allow these animals, some of which have suffered in the LPT for many years, to be mined or killed,” says Friedrich Mülln of SOKO Animal Protection.

According to information of SOKO, the LPT closes the animal testing laboratory in Mienenbüttel.
This ends almost 60 years of cruelty.
Merck is one of the few companies to continue an already started primate-study there. After that, the lights go out.

The site is dissolved and no new animal experiments on monkeys, dogs or cats performed.

Instead, they want to focus on animal experiments on rats, mice and rabbits at the sites in Neugraben and Löhndorf (Germany).

The tactic is clear, the LPT hopes that the resistance in these animals will be weaker.

We call on the LPT and the authorities to hand over the dogs, cats and monkeys caged in Mienenbüttel to animal welfare and to enable them to live a life of happiness and self-determination for some of those animals who have suffered there for years.

We fight peacefully for EVERY victim of the LPT.
Our grand demonstration on 16.11 demands:
Freedom for all victims of the LPT and the chapter LPT finish in Mienenbüttel, in Neugraben and in Löhndorf!

SOKO Tierschutz/Cruelty Free International

 

A comment by founder of SOKO Animal Protection, Friedrich Mülln: “Such a worldwide success in 140 years fight against animal experiments, in an animal laboratory of this size has never been. Not in a peaceful way anyway.
This is absolutely fantastic and a historic defeat for the animal testing industry. Know that to appreciate and use. Because only those who have the will to win, also win for the animals. Whoever talks badly, gets overwhelmed by frustration and fear, has no chance to win. And loses.

What will happen to the animals?

People are asking me if it is possible to rescue animals now. The monkeys I see hardly any hope, because these animals are worth thousands of EUR per animal. The “unused” will sell the LPT and the others are already dead or will be killed in the last Merck trial. Here we can resist, delay the transports and exert pressure.

The cats and dogs look different. For the most part these animals have already been used in animal experiments and their value in the ill calculations of this death industry is so low that not even the transport to another laboratory is worthwhile. In addition, hardly any laboratory will take “used” animals.

That’s why we have a real chance here! We already have seats for all animals.
So we fight for these animals! But also for the rats, mice, guinea pigs and rabbits in the remaining laboratories in Neugraben and Löhndorf.

So right now, with full and newly created power against the LPT and the rest of the gang. I can not promise that we can save these animals, but we can try it”!

And I mean…Yes! We will not get such a chance again! we all have to be present now, for the animals, the pressure must not subside.
United we are strong, we have made great success, now it’s about the last stage.
All go to the demo on November 16th, in Hamburg!

Our children, the hope of tomorrow..

 

A sustainable lifestyle, characterized by an awareness of tomorrow, is especially relevant for those who have little influence on it today: our children.

The little hero of tomorrow was given a voice on the current InLegend album “Stones At Goliath” not only musically, but also in terms of content – loudly they demand responsibility in the common song “Empty Place” in the here and now and the natural habitat of our planet also for the future worth living – after all, there is only this one …

Here you can watch the video for “Empty Place”, which was created in November 2014 in cooperation with Sea Shepherd, THE JETLAGGED and many great kids.

And I mean….The loyalty and the respect with the victim turns the victim into a person.
Teach your children that.
At this moment when children learn to treat animal cruelty and animal tormenters as crimes, the victim is someone who is worthy of solidarity with him.
In our society, loyalty is practiced only with the powerful, with the perpetrators and their useful idiots.

These are messages that we should convey to our children, with examples that are much more important than any argumentative headbirth, because they are understood by all, very painfully understood, because they are the root of morality.
