Jail to all those responsible for the mistreatment of the lion Jupiter

Petition – Jail to all those responsible for the mistreatment of the lion Jupiter

Addressed to: Government of Colombia

As a child he was saved from an unworthy life and constant mistreatment in a circus, and thanks to a beautiful woman the lion could be raised knowing love and care.

But one day the Administrative Department of Environmental Management said that the animal could not live in that place because it was not “safe” and he was transferred to a shelter in Córdoba, where he ended up almost dead for having left him without attention, that’s why I ask that those responsible for DAGMA respond to the Law for the mistreatment of this beautiful animal.

USA: Central Park Carriage Horse Euthanized After Collapse; City Officials Call for Investigation Amid Public Protest.

Central Park Carriage Horse Euthanized After Collapse; City Officials Call for Investigation Amid Public Protest

A 12-year-old horse was euthanized on Saturday after suffering cardiac issues in Central Park, the horses vet said

 

One day after a carriage horse collapsed in New York City’s Central Park and died a short time later, animal protestors crowded outside of the Clinton Park Stables to called for independent investigations into the working conditions for the city’s carriage horses.

The 12-year-old horse named Aisha was euthanized on Saturday hours after it was caught on video repeatedly collapsing over a 15-minute period.

“The horse showed sudden signs of distress around 12:30 pm on Saturday after doing a single ride and then waiting for approximately an hour and a half at the 7th Ave carriage stand. The vet and our emergency horse trailer were called immediately, and the horse unhitched and unharnessed,” said a spokesperson for the Historic Horse-Drawn Carriages of Central Park.

The vet and our emergency horse trailer were called immediately, and the horse unhitched and unharnessed,” said a spokesperson for the Historic Horse-Drawn Carriages of Central Park.

“Instead of calling a qualified vet, to help this horse, several carriage drivers tied him up with ropes, shoved, pulled him into a trailer and they took him back to the stable,” said Edita Birnkrant, executive director of NYCLASS (New Yorkers for Clean, Livable, and Safe Streets).

Birnkrant said carriage horses are overworked, under cared for, and put in dangerous situations every day with no accountability when things like this happen.

This is an industry out of control. That’s why we are calling on all the authorities who have the ability to fully, immediately shut down this abusive industry. We need a third-party investigation. It cannot be the very city agencies that are so inept to allow this abuse,” Birnkrant said.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson tweeted about the video on Sunday, calling for immediate investigations.

England: Can You Name Them ? – Police release pictures of huntsmen in Warwickshire hunt trespass on railway near Banbury.

Police release pictures of huntsmen in Warwickshire hunt trespass on railway near Banbury

British Transport Police (BTP) have issued two photos of men they want to identify after a hunt ran amok and held up trains on New Year’s Day.

 

Two men wanted by British Transport Police after a New Year's Day incident involving a hunt running amok over the Banbury to Leamington railway

 

In an appeal to the public they have asked anyone who recognises the men to contact BTP.

The Banbury Guardian covered the story at the time. At that time Warwickshire Hunt denied that a hound had been struck by a train, claiming ‘all hounds had returned safely to kennels’, but BTP has confirmed that a dog was, indeed, hit.

 

The second photo of the huntsmen released by British Transport Police today

 

One train involved in the initial incident and was left waiting on the track while Network Rail workers tried to get the hunt to leave the railway, which they refused to do. Overall 21 services were affected because of the backlog of delays. Network Rail confirmed that the trains have forward facing CCTV and their examination of the film has resulted in today’s appeal.

A spokesman for BTP said: “Officers investigating an incident of trespass in Warwickshire are today releasing these images in connection.

“On January 1 shortly before 1pm, officers were called to the lines in Claydon following reports of a group of trespassers on the tracks. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, however a dog was sadly hit by a train.

“The incident caused significant delays and cost to the railway. Officers believe the people in the CCTV images may have information which could help their investigation.

“If you recognise them or have any information please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 305 of 01/01/2020.

  “Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The bleeding zone

 

 

This is the reality of a rabbit slaughterhouse in Spain.
– Rabbits are transported in containers after a stressful 12-hour trip.
– They take them to the “bleeding zone” and hang them upside down.
Terrified wait watching while others are killed right in front of them.
– And, then, it is their turn to also be HANGED, DEGOLLATED and DISPELELED for meat.

Is it only in Spain?
No! This is how it works in all totalitarian, fascist systems, as well as the system of human animals, which they have constructed against all other animal species.

This fascist system of the stronger race enables us per se to practice the worst torture, injustice and exploitation of other animal species, with the only justification not to belong to the same species.

Every totalitarian system has perpetrators and victims.
We are on the side of the victims.

South Korea: Closing Stable Doors and Bolted Horses -President Moon Failed the Dogs In Hell Hole Meat Farms; Now South Korea Pays the ‘Karma’ Price for its Ignorance.

South Korea declares war on Coronavirus – but what about war on the terrible dog farms ? – after all; did it not all start at a live animal hellhole in China ? – is there not something to learn from all of this ? – it would appear that the people in charge ‘declaring war’ could not really fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone declare war !

Should President Moon have stuck with his Pre-election promises from 2017 and undertaken a ‘war’ with those involved in the live dog meat farms that so many have petitioned and provided graphic information on ? – after all, was it not the shitty squalid conditions in a Chinese live animal market where all this virus, which has now shut down the planet; started ?

We would think and hope that both the Chinese and South Koreans would put 2 and 2 together and come up with an answer of 4; they are supposed to be intelligent; but despite this, they seem incapable of looking at the root causes of the problems in their own nations – ie animal welfare. South Korea is starting now to pay the price for its past inactions – President Moon; you have failed your nation and you should have lived up to your pre election promises to take action for meat dogs. Kind of ‘Karma’ from the dogs one could say !

20 Aug 2018 South Korea’s President Moon Jae-In has been urged to end the brutal dog meat trade in his country. Animal protection campaigners in Seoul hand-delivered a petition signed by nearly 1 million people globally to the President’s residence, the Blue House.

Reports – Canine prejudice

The group rescued Tory two years ago, but has been unable to find an owner due to prejudices against black dogs in South Korea. The president says the adoption shows “that both humans and animals should be free from prejudice and discrimination,” Yonhap reports.

Animal rights formed part of President Moon’s election campaign, where he pledged to build more playgrounds for pets and feeding facilities for stray cats, the Korea Herald reports. However, he stopped short on a complete ban on dog meat trade, saying instead that it should be phased out.

EU and USA: death blow on Mako sharks

Commentary by Peter Hammarstedt (Sweden) – captain of Sea Shepherd

 

Makoshaipg

Europe kills the fastest shark in the world, while African countries struggle to save the shark from extinction.

 

Pro-Brexit supporters burn an EU flag during a UKIP demonstration in central London
Last week, Senegal and Canada submitted an application to the International Atlantic Tuna Conservation Commission (ICCAT) for strict guidelines to protect the shortfin maco after a 2017 study showed that the world’s fastest shark species, itself if the catch rate was zero, there would only be a fifty percent chance of recovering.
Gabon, The Gambia and Liberia supported the application, which provides for a ban on carrying short-fin makos on board, even if they were “accidentally” killed. The three African coastal states conduct patrols at sea together with Sea Shepherd.

The participants in the convention of the Washington Convention on the Protection of Species had previously voted for a trade ban on short-fin mako products.
To our horror, despite the efforts made by the African bloc, the application was smashed by the European Union and the United States. These made a weakened countermotion, which contradicted the best scientific recommendations.Unfortunately, this is not surprising since European fishing vessels are largely responsible for catching shortfin macos.

shea Shepard bericht über Haienjpg

The failure of the application is devastating, but it gives me hope to see how our African partner countries play a pioneering role in the question of better shark protection measures.
I am proud of Gabon, The Gambia and Liberia, who are fighting for the shortfin mako, and I trust that in future African coastal states will increasingly work for shark protection at international gatherings and conferences.

In addition, although the country is the largest market for shark fins, China has voted for measures to protect the short fin maco.

Sea Shepherd thanks the Gambia, Gabon and Liberia and the other 13 supporters of Senegal’s application for their strong commitment to nature conservation at the ICCAT meeting.

Haien Parallelen

Up to 11,000 sharks are killed by humans every hour. Shark populations have decreased by 90% in the past century and a quarter of all shark species are threatened with extinction.
The supporters of Senegal’s application understood the urgency of shark protection and the importance of better protection measures for the heavily exploited shortfin mako.

https://sea-shepherd.de/2818-usa-und-europa-blockeren-haischutz
My comment: “In their 400 million year evolution, the Mako sharks became the perfect hunter and even survived the dinosaurs, ”said marine biologist Ralf Sonntag for the International Animal Welfare Fund (IFAW).
And now they were brought to the brink of extinction by humans because of a shit soup!

The Mako shark is also known as the “cheetah of the oceans”. It can reach a speed of 69 km per hour. It is the fastest shark in the world.
Unlike other fish, sharks breed only slowly. Females only reach sexual maturity from the age of 18 and only have a few cubs every few years.

Spain is the main exporter of Mako sharks. European, especially Spanish and Portuguese, fishing vessels are responsible for 65% of the reported shortfin mako catches between January and June 2018.

The sharks are on the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as highly endangered!

The human animal should be on the red list as the most dangerous animal in the world.
I had invested high hopes on the Corona Virus that he would kill some millions of us, humans. So that the animal and natural world can recover a little.
But obviously he’s a weakling.

Alaska (USA): Breaking News – Alaska Airlines to Stop Sponsoring Iditarod Deadly Dog Race.

Image result for iditarod dog suffering

Following years of pressure from PETA and just days before the 2020 Iditarod begins, Alaska Airlines has confirmed that this will be the last year it sponsors the deadly race.

The company had been supporting the race—which forces dogs to run about 1,000 miles through Alaska’s rugged terrain and extreme temperatures—for at least 40 years.

This victory follows PETA’s behind-the-scenes meetings with officials, pressure on social media, protests outside the airline’s headquarters, and e-mails from nearly 100,000 of our members and supporters like you.

Now, urge Chrysler and the remaining sponsors to follow Alaska Airline’s lead and cut ties with the deadly race.

This is how sled dogs were warehoused for 40+ years in the mountains of Colorado

 

 

Urge Chrysler and Others to Stop Sponsoring the Cruel, Deadly Iditarod

 

Dogs in the Iditarod are forced to run approximately 1,000 miles in under two weeks. On average, they must run 100 miles a day, with only a few brief periods of rest. They’re subjected to biting winds, blinding snowstorms, and subzero temperatures. Many pull muscles, incur stress fractures, or are afflicted with diarrhea, dehydration, intestinal viruses, or pneumonia.

During the 2019 Iditarod, more than 230 dogs were pulled off the trail—likely because of exhaustion, illness, or injury. Just one day after crossing the finish line, Oshi died from aspiration pneumonia—probably from inhaling her own vomit, which is the leading cause of death for dogs who don’t survive the race.

In late 2018 and early 2019, a PETA eyewitness worked at two dog kennels owned by former Iditarod champions and found widespread neglect and suffering. Dogs were denied veterinary care for painful injuries, kept constantly chained next to dilapidated boxes and plastic barrels in the bitter cold and biting wind, and forced to run even when they were exhausted and dehydrated.

Please send e-mails to the following executives urging them to end their support of the Iditarod:

  • GCI CEO Ronald Duncan at rduncan@gci.com
  • Matson CEO Matthew J. Cox at mcox@matson.com

 

Then, use the form below to ask Chrysler and Donlin Gold and its parent companies—Barrick Gold Corporation and NOVAGOLD Resources, Inc.—to sever their ties with this abusive race, in which dogs are run to their deaths.
