EU Commission: the pencil-pushers of Brussels

EU report reveals abuses in animal exports by ship.


In view of a current report by the EU Commission on the implementation of animal transports by ship, the German Animal Welfare Association – together with the European umbrella organization Eurogroup for Animals – is once again calling for an end to live animal transport to countries outside Europe.
The report of the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG Sante) of the EU Commission documents various grievances in transport: from loading in trucks and in the port to shipping and arrival in the destination country.

“The documented massive grievances show once again that animal welfare requirements cannot be met during animal transport to countries outside Europe.

the color mouse as a pet

The color mouse represents the domesticated form of the house mouse.


It owes its name to its variety of colors.

Countless colors, which are divided into color groups and exciting sounding color drawings explain the expression “color mouse”.
But it’s not just their looks that are exciting. A look at their nature and their extraordinary senses shows how fascinating the little rodent is.

Color mice are not only characterized by their friendly nature and curiosity. In particular, they are highly social. They live in groups in which they take care of themselves. It is therefore not appropriate to keep a color mouse individually.

In contrast to rats, the cute rodents are not very keen on cuddling with humans.

Color mice can live up to 4 years if kept well.

From the fourth week on the females are sexually mature. Your wearing time is about 21 days. Depending on the age and nutritional status of the mother, a litter of up to 18 young can see the light of day. Immediately after birth, the female again presents herself as ready to conceive.

Mice are often referred to as “beginner pets” for children – but be careful!
They are demanding pets! Keeping these active creatures as pets requires extensive knowledge to avoid improper handling and ensure a long, healthy life.

Color mice are very fragile due to their size – they are not an easy-care entry-level pet for children. There are some animal welfare issues to consider when deciding to keep colored mice as pets.

We fight for animal rights


affen mutter mit Kind schönes Fotopg

What right allows us
to determine
who loves and who doesn’t
who feels and who doesn’t
who is suffering and who is not,
who receives protection and who does not
who has rights and who doesn’t

This is the privilege of the ruler,
the so-called Homo Sapiens, whose main business is killing.

Best regards to all, Venus
