Animals Asia – Breaking – 3 Very Poorly Bears Are Being Rescued. Can You Support With A Donation ? – Thank You.

AA April20

Dear Mark,

Forgive me for getting straight to the point but we’ve received an urgent call about three bears in terrible trouble.

We were first alerted two weeks ago and dropped everything to prepare for the rescue as quickly as we could. I know what you’re thinking… Why are they still waiting? Travel restrictions had just been put in place due to the coronavirus which meant it wasn’t permitted or safe to go ahead. During this initial call, we made the difficult discovery that there had been four bears, but sadly one of them passed away just a week before we were contacted.

With the travel restrictions now lifted and fearing for the safety of the remaining three bears, our incredible rescue team have once again dropped everything and are racing to bring them home to sanctuary. But we need your help.

These are extraordinary times. And with more empty bear bellies to fill, more medicines to purchase, and facing months of high costs because of the coronavirus, we need your help now more than ever to bring these bears home.

We currently know very little about the three bears. But their lives have certainly been no fairytale. They were discovered trapped in tiny, depressing metal cages side by side. We dread to think how long they’ve been like this…
Despite limited information, we can be almost certain that they’ll have serious health issues and need special ongoing care and treatment for the rest of their lives. Which we hope could be another 15 years or more.

Please, will you help these sweet bears on the road to recovery and beyond by setting up a monthly donation?

 

Help to bring them home with a donation:

It’ll take our team around four hours to reach the site in Nam Dinh Province and we hope to arrive on Tuesday morning (Vietnam time). I promise to keep you updated on their progress and to bring you more information soon. For live updates, and to see your kindness in action, please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for Asia’s animals when they need you most. Please stay safe during this difficult and challenging time.

With bear hugs of gratitude and of hope,

PS This is only the beginning.

By setting up a monthly gift today, you can help us ensure they live the lives they truly deserve.

PPS Big bear hugs of thanks for your continued support. Without you, Animals Asia wouldn’t be where we are today. And so many of Asia’s abused animals would never have been found and brought to safety. You should feel proud of the incredible difference you make.

 

Britches and their rescue

britchesjpg

Born at the University of California, Riverside in March 1985. He was removed from his mother at birth and had his eyelids sewn shut as part of a three-year maternal and sensory-deprivation study involving 24 infant monkeys.

Britches was removed from the laboratory when he was five weeks old during a raid on April 20, 1985 by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF).

The ALF made a videotape of their raid and of Britches’ condition when they found him.

The Consequences of Britches Animal Liberation

When PETA released the photos, videos and documents provided by the animal liberationists, there was an enormous public outcry.
Eight out of a further 17 planned animal studies were discontinued; the facility also prohibited the practice of sewing monkey babies’ eyes shut. An instructor quit his job and has not mistreated animals since then.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted an eight-month study of the animal care program in the university’s laboratories and concluded that it was “appropriate” animal care and that no corrective action was required.
There were no consequences for the responsibles.

But this action led others to follow suit: In 1985, A.L.F activists broke into a laboratory at the University of California in Riversde and freed 260 laboratory animals.
Britches became the symbol of this campaign.

Last but not least, there are open animal liberation grades, such as the liberation of beagle dogs from the breeding facility in Green Hill in Italy in 2012 and the liberation of over 300 animals from the Instituto Royal in Brazil in October 2013, which led to the shooting of the labo a month later.

It is very difficult to break through the fronts of the laboratory mafia.
Some activists made it, ALF made history and we are grateful to them for all the animals they liberated.

meat is murder

 

those who consume animal products do not only have the blood of the animals on their hands ….

Hunger kills around 24,000 people worldwide every day, three quarters of whom are children under the age of 5.
That is about 8,200 children under the age of five who die of hunger every day.
A child dies of hunger every ten seconds.

Hardly anyone talks about this genocide, let alone remedial measures.
For the powerful, it’s a business anyway.
But there are also others who speak of Christian values ​​and solidarity and justice, all of these billion hypocrites with their meat consumption, who are involved and complicit in this crime against humanity.

Ten global corporations control 85 percent of the staple foods traded worldwide.
These companies decide who eats and lives or who starves and dies.
The question of life and death is that of access to food, not the production of food.

The United Nations World Food Report says that world agriculture today could easily feed almost 12 billion people, more than double the world’s population.

The world grain harvest is great; worldwide it is about two billion tons a year, but about 800 million tons of it is used every year for the intensive feeding of slaughter cattle.

The rich world feeds its “useful” animals while in the Third World a child dies of hunger every ten seconds.

Those who do not eat meat release food for humans.
If we consumers stop the murderous mechanisms responsible for mass destruction in the Third World, this world dictatorship can stop, the planet and wildlife will recover, and many of the diseases that can plague millions of people worldwide will be prevented.
