Have A Great and Productive 2020 With Your Campaigning – From Mark and Venus.

Well here we are again drawing this time to the end of another decade – and despite all the bad issues that we have shown on the site; after all, that is what we exist for; to inform people about the bad stuff; with the hope of change; looking back it has also been a very productive year in 2019 for the welfare of animals.



Looking back; the recent disaster at Midia which took the lives of so many innocent sheep is one issue that I cannot forget. The authorities want us to, but after many years involved with live export; it is an issue very much engrained in my ‘system’; I hate it and will forever fight to stop it; all the way to the grave.


Animal Aid Unlimited in India are an organisation that I have so much respect for. Where do you start with them ?


23,550 calls requesting help for sick or injured animals in Udaipur. Each year more and more people in the city are becoming aware that they can do something when they see an injured animal, by a simple call for help, they are making their first step into becoming an animal protector.

9,384 animals were admitted in Animal Aid’s hospital to receive life-saving medical treatments for serious injuries and illnesses. About 26 new patients were taken in each day. We attempt to cover many of the stories here on WAV; just type in ‘Animal Aid Unlimited’ into the search box to get links to all the past videos.
In addition to the work back at base, AAU also provided 1,092 street treatments for animals who did not require full hospitalization. 1,317 dogs were spayed and neutered once they healed from their injuries. 3,728 incredible volunteers and visitors enriched the lives of animals, many of whom served the animals more than 2 weeks!

AAU also vaccinated 8,266 dogs against rabies both in their hospital and also directly on the street. Finally, 40 animal activists from across India have learned first aid principles and techniques from the intensive AAU First Aid Training Program.

Now that is something to be proud of, and we wish Erika and all the crew there an even better 2020 with their work.

Also, 2019 can be viewed as the year in England when the Hunting Act of 2004 was given long term protection and we will never legally return to the old days of wild animals being hunted to death by those with nothing more than a ‘bloodbath’ blood lust.

We must never forget Jill and the team at ‘Animals Asia; – it is probably best that we give their link as so many positives are covered. – with the young and a new positive view on how animals should be treated, we look forward to the day when bear bile farming and the dog meat trade in the Far East are confined as atrocities carried out in past times – rightly in history books where they belong.

The destruction of the Environment is a massive concern for every one of us. The deaths and suffering that is going on in Australia at this very moment, combined with recent events in Amazonia largely to increase space for cattle grazing at the cost of the indigenous peoples only shows that those in power there have one thing on their mind, and nothing else; and that is called ‘money’.


circus no smile.png

Circuses and sea life centres are really being shunned by the educated public now; and we very much welcome that. It is fantastic to see that some dolphins are even being returned to purpose built sanctuaries for them; where they can once again return to the type of lives that were cruelly taken from them in the past.

Turning to Serbia; it has been a positive year with regard the fur industry. We personally worked with the team at ‘Respect for Animals’ in England, and with Slavica and Serbian activists, supplying lots of information and undertaking lots of research which led to getting the fur farming ban introduced at the start of 2019; saving tens of thousands of Chinchilla in the process –

Serbian fur farming ban comes into force

Chinchilla – Saved by the Ban.

In the United States, there have been some really positive moves; and we thank all our US visitors for the work they have done behind the scenes. California has become the first US state to ban the sale of animal fur products The new legislation, AB44, bans the manufacture and sale of new fur products across the state and is already considered to be the most ground-breaking moment for the anti-fur campaign for many years. We hope and look forward to other states following the example of California.



Staying in the USA, we have seen a lot of positives with regard ‘killing contests’ – where animals are deliberately killed for prizes etc. In recent months we have seen bans introduced in Massachusetts, Arizona, as well as Coyote killing contests in New Mexico.

Food has been a big issue in America; with many major food chains now providing plant based options as part of the menu. This is great news and reflects the huge amount of people that have decided to change to a plant based diet, thus contributing to cutting down on global warming which is an intrinsic part of the meat production system; and which is very much responsible for some of the huge fires that we have witnessed this year in Amazonia due to forest clearance to make more grazing area for meat cattle. Many of America’s largest food chains have now moved to producing Vegan foods for consumers as part of their range – .



We thank Stacey at Our Compass for working with us, and giving links to many issues and videos associated with a meat free Vegan diet. Thanks Stacey; and keep up the great work !


We also say “thank” to our companion commentator Slavica; under the name “eparslavicaepar”, (we know who she is) for the faithful accompaniment (almost) for each article. Comments are a strengthening of our work, even if they are critical!




Whizzing over to South Korea, we wants to give thanks and credit to Korean for all their tireless work aimed at stopping the live dog and cat meat trade. On the site given, you can find endless ways to give your support to their work, and we encourage you strongly to do that.


Cage age 1


Back here in England, we need to highlight the huge amount of work being done by CIWF all over the world on so many different farm animal issues; from the ban the cages campaign in Europe, through to helping pig producers in China to be more animal welfare considerate and change (improve) their methods of farm animal husbandry.


All in all; we have just skimmed the surface of what has been a very positive and productive year (in 2019) aiming at helping animals across the world. We cannot cover everything as it would take far too long, but we know that you, our friends and supporters are able to investigate a lot more about specific issues that may be of concern to you.


To try and give you a little assistance, we have provided on our site an A to Z listing of major animal welfare organisations, complete with their web site links, in order that you can hopefully find out a bit more much easier. Here is the link to this section:



We wish you all a great year in 2020 campaigning for the rights of, and being a voice for animals all over the world. You usually find that animal rights people often have a big interest in human rights also; and we try to do a little here as well. Check out one of our links associated with the Amazon forest peoples


… and for me (Mark), I especially wish to give support to free Tibet from the current rule of China which is covered so fantastically by London based ‘Free Tibet’ –


Be a voice and fight the fight – results are never immediate and campaigns can take a long time to win – just look at the League Against Cruel Sports (London) – formed in 1924; but it was not until 2004 that they managed to get Hunting with dogs stopped for wild animals –


You Can Run, But You Cannot Hide !

Happy New Year for 2020 – Regards Mark and Venus xx.

We never lose the hope!


Affe mit spruchpg

Dear readers, followers and animal rights activists,

The German dramatist Heiner Müller once said: “Optimism is a lack of information”!
Is that correct?
Is our hope of eliminating animal suffering based on a lack of information?
I would not say that!
We who fight for animal rights are better informed than ever before.
And everyone has access to information.

Today we have the Internet, the various animal welfare blogs that primarily seek objective and global information.
We report where there is new and old animal suffering, we clarify, we mobilize, we call for actions and demos, we always try to be on the side of the animals.

But we never lose hope because that’s what drives us, not optimism.
Because we believe in our mission: a better world for animals without concentration camps and places of mass destruction.

Our struggle is a struggle against a fascist exploitation system supported by billions of followers because this system has legalized the ruling human race.

We are fighting for the abolition of slavery by “others”, a form of rule based on the principle of power and not on justice.

As with any struggle for the rights of the weaker, this struggle for animal rights is a political struggle, it is the continuation of the struggle for human rights that has been achieved even after a long, hard struggle.

The animal holocaust is the worst capital crime in history.
Do we seriously want to abolish it?

Then let’s go to the new year with fight, power and hope !!

My best regards and wishes to all,

Germany: Death candidates disturb meat eaters


banane rep deutschlandpg

Roaring cattle on trucks, which drive to the slaughterhouse at dawn, apparently regularly pull residents out of their sleep. Residents are regularly woken up at dawn. There is no right to redirect the transporters.

The district committee Altstadt-Lehel was quite willing to take the problem seriously (!!!), especially since Wolfgang Püschel (Social Democratic Party of Germany), who lives nearby, was able to confirm the situation.

The animals are sometimes uncomfortably loud (!!!). But what to do?

LKW mit Kuhjpg

Stefan Blum (Christian Social Union in Bavaria), who is the chairman of the responsible subcommittee, stated that there was no legal right to redirection, after all, it was not a through traffic, but an inner-city traffic.

Blum suggested that the speed limit be 30 in the corresponding section of the road, at least the traffic would be quieter.
In the neighboring district, this has proven itself, the drivers are sticking to the limit.
It was joked that the animals were only heard louder when the traffic was quieter, but in the end everyone agreed to seize the opportunity and really request a speed limit here.

gestresste schweinejpg


My comment: As if it wasn’t enough for customers to fund these transports, to send these animals to the cruel death of the slaughterhouse, to eat their meat, now they’re distraught that the death candidates are screaming out of fear, suffering, and pain.

And none of these annoyed carnivorous human animals has the idea of ​​getting rid of the problem once and for all, stopping animal transport, stopping meat consumption and stopping animal slavery.
Human being is an hypocritical, harmful, useless animal, nothing else.

My best regards to all, Venus

What Do You Call A Man Who Ignores the Specialist Global Evidence In Favour of Protecting His Fossil Fuel Cronies ? – Answer: Mr Morrison !

Australian flag painted by brush hand paints. Art Aussie flag. Watercolor flag. Australia art vector flag.

Think it is about time you kicked out this utter tosser government and replaced it with something that takes the environment seriously.

Scott Morrison will go down in history as the man who ignored all the warnings whilst supporting the fossil fuel industry, and taking a holiday at the same time during a national crisis – in charge ? – doubt it !.

Australians are really now paying the price; not to mention the millions of animals that have died in the heat already – the start of many more ? 

So Australia – do something about this arse government you have ! – ike get rid of them.


Dec 29

23,000 giant fruit bats — about a third of the species — dropped dead from heat stress in Queensland and New South Wales in April. 10,000 black flying foxes, a different species, also died. Bodies plopped into backyard gardens and swimming pools.

We’re on perilous ground

We are on track for a temperature rise of over 3°C.

This would bring mass extinctions & large parts of the planet would be uninhabitable. We need to supercharge our #ClimateAction ambition:

You aren’t devastated.

You still prioritise your coal donors over the lives of people fighting fires exacerbated by #climatechange.

Or is the country being on fire still not the appropriate time to talk about the #ClimateEmergency ?

It is terrible loss of life & really sad.

If only you have met with experts when they asked & if you could put aside your arrogance for better of this country maybe some of these tragedies could have been avoided, losses minimised. Your way is negligent to our people & country.

England: Top Lawyer Admits Clubbing Fox to Death Whilst Dressed in Wife’s Pink Nightie !



WAV Comment – There is nothing at all wrong with a woman wearing a pink nightie; sounds great and sexy; but a high court (male) judge; that’s real different  ! – maybe he will be viewed very differently in future should he ever meet hunt sabs in court.  The issue of a fox killing has sparked outrage with the Brits – now he is the hunted – Mark.


Lawyer admits clubbing fox to death

Jolyon Maugham said he was wearing wife’s satin kimono when he beat animal to death with baseball bat

The RSCPA is investigating a prominent barrister who revealed he had clubbed a fox to death in his garden.

Jolyon Maugham QC, who is known for leading a series of legal actions over Brexit, provoked outrage by tweeting on Thursday: “Already this morning I have killed a fox with a baseball bat. How’s your Boxing Day going?”

He later reported himself to the RSPCA as he faced a growing backlash online.

The charity, which prosecutes cases of animal cruelty, confirmed it was “aware of a situation regarding a fox, and would like to reassure people that we’re investigating”.

The RSPCA had earlier described Mr Maugham’s account of killing the fox as “distressing”.

The lawyer said the animal had “got caught up in the protective netting around the chickens at his home in central London and he “wasn’t sure what else to do“.

Faced with a deluge of criticism, he wrote: “No one should relish killing animals – and I certainly didn’t. But if you haven’t been up close to a large trapped fox, perhaps reserve judgment.”

He later added: “Sorry to those upset by my tweet. My chickens were very distressed by the fox – both before and after I’d despatched it – and I wanted it out of the way quickly.”

Prominent lawyer sparks backlash after ‘killing fox with baseball bat’

Mr Maugham also revealed he was wearing his wife’s satin kimono and nursing a hangover when he clubbed to fox to death.

Government guidelines state cage traps and snares may be deployed to protect property from foxes and a person who uses them must “humanely kill any fox you catch while it’s in the trap or snare”.

An RSPCA spokesperson on Friday declined to say if investigators had spoken to Mr Maugham.

The animal welfare organisation said: “Our investigation is ongoing and we have a number of strict procedures to follow, which means that we cannot share the details with the public.

“We appreciate that this is a very emotive issue, but we need to conduct our investigation in a confidential and professional manner.”

Matthew Scott, a lawyer who writes legal commentary on his website Barrister Blogger, said Mr Maugham “will be in for a very unpleasant time indeed” if the RSPCA launches a full investigation.

He wrote: “He could be called in for interview. The fox’s cadaver could be recovered and sent to a pathologist. The baseball bat would be bagged up and carefully examined for fingerprints. His wife could find her kimono seized for forensic analysis. They would be looking for DNA from the fox and a forensic interpretation of blood spatters on the kimono. 

“Mr Maugham may or may not be a rich man, but he is not as rich as the RSPCA, and the RSPCA tends to throw money at prosecutions, no matter how trivial. Win or lose he will be out of pocket, even with his genius for crowdfunding litigation.”

Mr Scott said the “obvious offence to consider first” is a breach of the Wild Mammals (Protection) Act, which prohibits inflicting “unnecessary suffering” by beating. 

The offence can be punishable with up to six months in prison, though Mr Scott said Mr Maugham could potentially argue killing the fox was necessary as to not do so would have “would have meant the fox suffering on the wire for longer”.

Mr Maugham said in a tweet: “To those concerned I have broken the law, I called and spoke to the RSPCA and left my contact details.”

The barrister is the founder and director of the Good Law Project, which has brought a number of legal challenges to the Brexit process and was involved in the successful court action to stop Boris Johnson’s unlawful prorogation of parliament. 



Fireworks: collective idiocy!



It’s amazing how people like to follow senseless archaic structures of fun and conviviality.
The first fireworks probably occurred in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1270) and in the late 14th century in Italy (first mentioned in Vicenza, 1379). The use of black powder developed into an independent art of fireworks, which then spread throughout Europe.
It has been 7 centuries since then and most people shoot their pyrotechnic crap like crazy in Sylvester.

You will find offers on the subject of fireworks in all brochures and advertising leaflets.

Waste of money, noise, smog, garbage, injuries of humans and deaths of animals – we all know that firecrackers are not a rational game. But we do it anyway; Most still follow the herd instinct, which is never to be trusted..


We play war for one night, and if that’s a game for us, for the animals it`s a horror.

Unsuspectingly, most birds sit in their beds on December 31st at midnight each year, trying to save their precious energy in the cold season. And suddenly the madness starts: Rockets explode in the air with a horror bang. Pure horror.  This has fatal consequences for the bird world, but also for the hibernation of many other animals.


Accompanied by constant fear, fear of death, torn from their sleep, they fly around in confusion and fear, sometimes up to heights of 500 to 1000 meters.
Some of them stay in the air for up to half an hour or more. Radar images from the Netherlands clearly show the massive effects of fireworks on wild birds.
For about three quarters of an hour, millions of rockets are fired all over the world and turn the first night of the year into a Syria night! At least for the animals.

Eyewitnesses report panicked martens and deer, which in their fear sometimes run against trees. Because there are many who want to practice their martial pyrotechnics in the idyllic countryside.

Waste of money, noise, smog, garbage, injuries and deaths of humans and animals – we all know that firecrackers are not a rational game.
Little is known about the miserable working conditions of production in India and China.

Because the main producers of the fireworks are India and China. With their production they cover 97 percent of the world market. In both countries there is a region where most of the fireworks production takes place – Liuyang in China and Sivakasi in South India. With child labor. Children work up to 13 hours a day for this pyrotechnic crap.

They no longer have fingernails. Their hands are burned. Arms and face are scarred. According to the Don Bosco Children’s Aid Order, 70.000 children make rockets, firecrackers and sparklers in the south Indian city of Sivakasi. ” (taz newspaper)


And I mean…Insane how much money is fired each year for fireworks.
“Happy New Year!”

With high probability we will hear such a sentence everywhere on New Year’s Eve while it is popping and the sky is colorful, and in private houses animals are scared to death and outdoors, in nature animals kill themselves in panic.

And on New Year’s morning, the same idiots will always be upset about the indescribable amounts of garbage that their rockets and firecrackers have become.


Stop wasting money on fireworks trash.
Spend this money on needy animals in a shelter, or for homeless people.

It is high time that this society finally stopped covering up and justifying its educational stagnation through tradition.
