Traveling along a back road in frigid Alberta, Canada, oil worker Kendall Diwisch discovered three distressed kittens with their tails frozen to the ground.

Thinking quickly, Diwisch retrieved his coffee and poured it on the kittens’ tails to melt the ice, freeing them one by one. He captured the adorable rescue on video and can be heard gently reassuring the meowing felines that they’re going to be okay before scooping them up and putting them in his truck.

“Poor things were frozen into the ice, so they had to have been there all night,” he later wrote in a Facebook post. “[I] took them home, fed and watered them, [and] they look to be healthy and friendly.”

Suspecting the kittens were cruelly abandoned in the freezing cold, Diwisch took them to a local animal shelter and announced on social media that they need forever homes.

Shortly after, he updated the post, as all three kittens were adopted by a loving, new family.

Heartwarming stories like this one remind us that taking just a little bit of time to help an animal in need can go a long way to ending their struggle and saving their life.

‘Dinosaurs Had Teeth To Eat Meat’ – Well Actually There Is A Lot More To It; A Guide For Vegans.

England

 

There are concerns for some people wishing to adopt a vegan diet because of their opposition to animal abuse and suffering which is common in all meat and dairy production.

The concern is normally if they are going to be ok health wise regarding a change to veganism.

We are giving a link here to the Viva! Site from England, which works to prevent animal abuse whilst at the same time also giving out lots of info re changing to a vegan diet.

 

Here is the link,

https://www.vivahealth.org.uk/resources/b12-and-vegan-diet-fact-sheet

 

Just go to the header of ‘Vegan Health’; and you will be given a large series of responses to issues that may concern you if you are thinking of going vegan; or provide more info if you are already vegan and wish to know more.

Here is the link from the very top of the pile, which gives multiple reasons why your body, animals and the environment will thrive by you undertaking the change:

https://www.vivahealth.org.uk/veganhealth

 

Learn more about it all and use the above links to increase your personal databank, so that you have valid responses when (as they always do), meat eaters come back at you in pathetic attempts to justify their way of eating.

 

I personally had it the other day, from someone in the medical profession actually; who told me, not asked; that the dinosaurs only had teeth because they ate a lot of meat !

 

Well; ask the Sauropodas;

 

Image result for Sauropods

Sauropods evolved to walk on four legs and typically grew to enormous sizes. They were herbivores (plant eaters) and included classic dinosaurs such as the Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus

If you look at dinosaur genera, roughly 65 percent of the dinosaurs were plant eaters and 35 percent were meat-eaters (or omnivores).

I can sense another meat eater comment coming on – like “but they all died out”. Well yes, but I think that was very much due to a massive catastrophe on Earth such as a major meteorite impact or something similar. And what about the meat eating dinosaurs, did they survive? – No. I think this kind of kills the argument that to survive, you have to eat meat.

It is an issue that divides many; and they probably wont change much in their opinions of what is good or bad eating for you. All I know is that not having touched a slice of dead animal for over 30 years; I am still here and I think my brain still works a bit – though some visitors to WAV may question that ! – only joking; we do what we can.

Be good and stay healthy; go Vegan.

Well she looks good on it !

USA: Victory! – SeaWorld has been forced to stop treating dolphins like surfboards. More Action Needed – See Link in Text.

Victory! – SeaWorld has been forced to stop treating dolphins like surfboards and will soon stop making trainers stand on their faces in demeaning circus-style shows.

SeaWorld admitted that it’s ending the cruel practices in response to PETA’s latest shareholder proposal calling for the changes.

Our months-long campaign also included a damning veterinary report exposing the suffering that dolphins endure at the parks, a shareholder question posed by Alec Baldwin, numerous local ads, e-mails from more than 133,000 of our members and supporters, and more.

 

While we’ve stopped trainers from treating dolphins like surfboards and launchpads, orcas and other dolphins continue to suffer in cramped concrete tanks. SeaWorld seems intent on being dragged, kicking and screaming, into ultimately releasing these animals to seaside sanctuaries.

Please join PETA in demanding that SeaWorld put a plan in place to move the animals to seaside sanctuaries now.

 

Take More Action:

Thank you for your compassion for animals.

Inside the Disgusting World of Europe’s Biggest Hunting Fair where Trophy Hunters Buy and Sell Their Grim Goods.

Inside Europe’s biggest hunting fair where trophy hunters buy and sell grim goods

EXCLUSIVE: At Germany’s Jagd & Hund ‘Hunting and Dog’ trade fair trophy hunters and buyers travel from around the world to trade in the slaughter of wild animals in the name of sport

With a smile on her face, a middle-aged woman invites me to try a dining room chair for comfort.

She confirms matter-of-factly the £1,189 chair is made from zebra hide.

We are in a vast conference centre full of animal skins, hunting trophies – and some unpleasant people.

It is only 10.30am but the room is already packed with punters, some with kids in tow, others with furs – with the animal’s head still attached – draped around their shoulders.

NThe 45-year-old owns Take Aim Safaris, which offers trips to hunt lions, elephants, hippos, giraffes, leopards, zebras and a host of other species in South Africa and Zimbabwe. He boasts of having taken part in over 400 game hunts.

The shaven-headed hunter greeted visitors on his stall this weekend under a banner that said “your gateway to hunting”.

His brochure says: “I have personally hunted the big five and dangerous seven as a client. I know exactly what is required to make your safari a successful one. South Africa would also be ideal for family hunting holidays.”

Nearly 180 trophy hunting firms from around the world flocked to this six-day event – called Jagd & Hund, meaning Hunting and Dog – lauding the slaughter of wild animals in the name of sport.

Among the Brits cashing in on the bloodthirsty safaris was Carl Knight, born in Epsom, Surrey, and now living in South Africa with his wife and two children.

Defending his organised shoots of wild animals in Africa, he says on his website: “Hunters are real conservationists, we are doing good work, we won’t be discouraged.”

Last night conservationists blasted the British presence at the convention.

Eduardo Goncalves, of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, said: “What an appalling ‘hobby’, and what a disgusting way to make a living.

“At this fair Carl Knight will have sold off the lives of countless defenceless animals to people who kill for kicks. He shames our country.

People will be furious that the law still allows Brits to shoot zebras for a laugh and then have them skinned to turn into seat covers. How could anyone sit on them knowing the animal has died a cruel, callous and senseless death?”

Most stalls were lined with furs such as bears and springboks. There were stuffed animals including lions, hyenas and tigers.

There are now less than 4,000 tigers left in the wild, according to the World Wide Fund for Nature.

Items on offer included traps, a fox cushion for £84, and a bear skin complete with head for £849.

Many stalls at the fair used zebra skins as makeshift tablecloths.

I also encountered hunters selling cut-price safaris to kill imperilled species such as giraffes for 3,000 euros (roughly £2,600).

 

The booth of Okambara Elephant Lodge was staffed by two women standing next to a trophy of a giraffe. One of the reps said she has been a hunting guide for three years, adding: “Hunting giraffes is rather easy because there are many roaming near the lodge.”

First Class Trophy, a taxidermy company based in Denmark, was punting a new smartphone app boasting “easy and fast” quotes for stuffing your animal of choice.

European trophy hunters have killed about 75,000 protected and threatened animals in the past decade.

 

It is estimated 7,000 threatened animals will be slaughtered and brought into Europe by trophy hunters in the coming months.

Manon Dene, from Humane Society International, said: “This kind of trophy hunting fair outlines how shockingly easy it is for individuals to travel almost anywhere in the world to shoot as many iconic or endangered species as their bank account allows.

“To witness an event like this taking place in the heart of Europe, that glorifies the killing of wild animals for thrills and bragging rights, was truly upsetting.”

The Mirror (UK) is campaigning for an end to the barbaric practice of trophy hunting.

 

We are calling on the (UK) Government to ban the import of animals that are shot for pleasure.

The Government is con­­sulting until February 25 on whether trophy hunting imports should be out­­lawed.

Mr Goncalves said: “We have to do away with this evil ‘sport’. We may never get another chance to put an end to this disgrace. Let’s kick trophy hunting into touch once and for all.”

You can help the campaign by emailing huntingtrophyconsultation@defra.gov.uk and saying you support a total ban.

Austria: Psychopaths threaten…

 

österreichpg

Posted at Martin Balluch ( Association Against Animal Factories, VGT, Austria)

Once again hard to believe!

The Association Against Animal Factories (VGT)Deputy Chairman David Richter, father of three children, received this threatening letter with the threat of death and the announcement of an arson attack.

Written on a typewriter.

There is a hunting society in the Leibniz district (Austria) that clearly illegally releases and kills pheasants. David Richter documented this together with other activists. That is the reaction to it!

In addition, there were several notifications against (!) David Richter from these hunters according to the General Data Protection Regulation because he had documented the hunters during the (illegal !!) hunt for illegally exposed pheasants without permission!

But now it only comes: A hunter wrote a letter to the state hunter of Styria, pointing out these abuses of illegal abandonment of pheasants and demanding that the hunting license be withdrawn.

The hunting overseer of this hunt then filed a complaint against the VGT-OBMANN deputy for defamation.

According to the public prosecutor’s office, criminal proceedings have also been opened against the deputy VGT chairman.

But this incredibly brutal death threat is totally irrelevant to the state attorney, it seems.

Really shocking how the animal rights activists are treated as second class people over and over again. They are charged with the trifle trifles, but the most massive attacks and threats against animal rights activists are not pursued.

IT IS THE SAME EVERY TIME !!! 

Translation of the threat (original see below)

As an animal lover, Mr. Richter, your days are numbered.
As the spokesman for the association, your days are also numbered.
We have located your residence in Thal.
We, as hunting clubs have certainly reserved a scrap load for you on occasion, or we will set your house on fire.
So it does not continue that you destroy all hunts and question our tradition.
The XXXXXX will also happen.
The “pork” farmers from the Leibniz district also join.
Traditionally, we don’t let psychologically ill patients get us down.
It cannot be that a whole profession is drawn into discredit ???

The original text

And I mean:  “Both the serial killer and the violent and cunning hunter thinks he has something important to share. Brain abnormalities are strikingly common in serial killers. Violence leaves traces in the brain after a short time ”.

Why are hunters so uninhibited and aggressive?
Because the state and the politicians are behind them.
With the support of a corrupt policy millions of animals are brutally murdered in the forest from the hunter’s hand.
And that happens in an EU country that calls itself civilized!!
