Nuremberg zoo discuss publicly the murder of lion “Subali”!

The Nuremberg zoo is considering killing the male lion Subali.

The animal is apparently sterile. In the zoo, they speak of a “species protection dilemma”(!!)
Rescue for the lion is still possible.

The male lion Subali with his dark mane is one of the biggest attractions in the Nuremberg zoo. Since the lion came to the zoo in August 2018, the zookeepers have been waiting for offspring.
So far in vain.

Because the lioness Aarany is much younger, the zoo assumes that it is Subali and that the 14-year-old lion is sterile.

Subali the lion is threatened with death

The Nuremberg zoo may therefore be forced to kill Subali.
Zoo boss Dag Encke brought this up in an interview himself.

He justifies this with the lack of space in the zoo and a “dilemma of species protection”.
It is a statutory mandate of zoos and zoos to “manage populations in order to be able to preserve species in the long term,” said Encke.

If an animal is sterile and you can’t breed, that’s a problem (!!!)

A decision has not yet been made.

It has not yet been decided whether the Lion Subali will be killed. Zoo boss Dag Encke speaks of a “highly emotional topic”.
Before a decision is made, it must be checked whether the lion is actually sterile. If necessary, they will try to move the animal somewhere else, says Encke.

If this does not succeed, killing is a “realistic scenario”.

Sharp criticism from PETA

The animal welfare organization PETA criticizes the deliberations of the Nuremberg Zoo in the strongest possible terms.

To justify the killing of the Subali lion with the protection of species is “pulled by the hair,” said Nadja Michler from PETA.
Such infertility measures are not justified.
In fact, animals are repeatedly killed in zoos and zoos because they are “not profitable”.

The fault lies in the system, according to the animal rights activist.

If the Nuremberg zoo actually kills the Subali lion, PETA wants to file a criminal complaint.,SEtJ3Av


And I mean: Since when has murder been publicly discussed?
Since when have zoos been responsible for species protection?
Since when have the zoos been breeders?

By the way: the zoo in Nuremberg is extremely outdated, for this reason, the zoo director has no right to talk about species protection.

The animals cannot be kept in a species-appropriate manner.

The griffin cannot fly, the cheetah lies in the sand all day, surrounded by walls, the giraffe has only 30 meters to run. Really tragic.

So far, no other zoo wants to take Subali.
It is possible to transfer the animal to another zoo.
But which zoo makes room for an old and sterile lion that is no longer making money?

Now the Circus Krone has intervened!!
Which still makes money in wildlife shows and has a very bad reputation as a business.

“I wrote an e-mail to the zoo director. I’ll try to save the lion,” said Martin Lacey, the circus lion trainer.

We can imagine what the trainer understands by rescue.

Some from the zoo business want to kill Subali, others from the circus business want him with whips hit, train, and cart through the country.

And so we give the animal only two alternatives, euthanize or trained and tortured for the rest of his life.
Both are just shit!

Australia: If ‘Mulesing’ Sheep Is Not A Problem for Them; Surely They Would Love A Statue To Show The World What They Do ?

WAV Comment – Mulesing is one of the most hideous and barbaric practices undertaken on living sheep today,  In Mulesing, farm workers force live sheep onto their backs, restrain their legs between metal bars, and cut chunks of flesh from their backsides.  This is alleged to prevent ‘flystrike’; something which can be done with medication nowdays, but which the industry refuses to use because of costs involved for better animal welfare.

Not only does Australia still undertake chopping chunks of flesh off of living animals; it is still very involved in transporting live animals across the globe re live exports.  One has to question the Australian approach to animal welfare when they are still heavily involved in practices from the dark ages.

The Peta proposed mulesed lamb statue sounds like a great idea – as they say; surely the industry would welcome a statue designed to inform people about this element of wool production, given how hard it has fought for decades to continue mulesing, even in the face of public outcry and worldwide designer boycotts?

What has the industry got to hide ? – it either stops mulesing or it has a statue to inform the world that it still undertakes carving up live animals.  They have a choice.

In the following you can see pictures of mulesed sheep.

Mulesed Lamb Statue Proposed for Goulburn

Posted on 27 October 2020 at 8:16PM by PETA Australia

Following news that a parliamentary inquiry in New South Wales has failed to recommend ceasing the practice of mulesing sheep in the state, PETA has written to the Mayor of Goulburn, home of the “Big Merino”, and asked permission to erect a new statue for the area – a giant mulesed lamb.

More than 70% of Australia’s wool comes from sheep who are mulesed, a barbaric practice in which workers force live sheep onto their backs, restrain their legs between metal bars, and cut chunks of flesh from their backsides. This is terrifying for prey animals like sheep, who cry out in fear and pain. It also leaves them with open wounds – which, ironically, are prone to flystrike, which mulesing ostensibly aims to prevent.

When PETA US first exposed mulesing to the world back in the early 2000s, the Australian wool industry promised to phase it out by 2010. Since then, numerous  celebrities, consumers, fabric buyers, and fashion houses worldwide have called for an end to mulesing.

In 2018, New Zealand has made mulesing illegal, and yet it remains prevalent in Australia.

Surely the industry would welcome a statue designed to inform people about this element of wool production, given how hard it has fought for decades to continue mulesing, even in the face of public outcry and worldwide designer boycotts?

Sheep Need Your Help

Not only does the Australian wool industry mules lambs, it also cuts off their tails and castrates males without any pain relief. Shearers, who are paid per fleece, work roughly and violently, pinning petrified sheep down, punching them in the face with metal clippers, cutting them open, and shoving them down chutes. Over the past six years, PETA’s affiliates have visited 43 farms across New South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria and have found cruel treatment of animals at every single one.

With so many animal-free, environmentally friendly fabrics now available, there is simply no need to continue inflicting so much pain on sheep.

The wool industry and the government have both failed sheep, so it’s up to each of us to act. Now, more than ever, we must vote with our wallets and leave wool out of our wardrobes.

Press propaganda made in Germany: “wolves kill sheep, spread fear”.


There are more and more: Wild wolves on the advance in Germany!

Bonn, Germany – Wolves continue to spread in Germany, as recent figures from the authorities show.

Wolves kill sheep and spread fear (!!!)

According to the latest official census, there are 128 wolf packs, 35 pairs, and 10 sedentary individual wolves in Germany – significantly more than a year earlier.

In the monitoring year 2019/20, wolves were detected in 15 of 16 federal states, as the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation announced on Friday.

Wolves live mainly in Brandenburg, Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony-Anhalt, and Lower Saxony.

But there are also territories in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia.

According to updated data, 105 packs, 41 pairs, and 12 individual wolves were detected in the 2018/19 monitoring year, the nature conservation authority announced.

“The wolf population in Germany is increasing,” said Beate Jessel, President of the Federal Office.

The wolf population has continued to increase, particularly in the north and northwest. For the first time in ten years, a sedentary wolf was confirmed in the Bavarian Alps.

126 wolves found dead

A fence delimits a sheep pasture on Burgdorfer Holz. Wildlife cameras have recorded at least eight wolf pups in the area northwest of Hanover.

47 wolf packs lived in Brandenburg in the monitoring year from May 1, 2019, to April 30, 2020, more than in any other German state.

In second place is Saxony with 28 packs and Lower Saxony with 23.

According to experts, it is difficult to say how many individual animals there are – a pack consists of a pair of parents and their offspring, and mortality is relatively high.

The number of wolves in a pack can therefore fluctuate widely, according to experts it is usually between five and ten animals.

The number of wolves found dead has also increased sharply – from 100 in 2018/19 to 126 in the most recent monitoring.

“After traffic accidents, illegal killing is the second leading cause of death,” said Jessel.

Of 126 animals found dead, 98 died in traffic, and 11 were killed illegally, and another 7 of the wolves that were involved in an accident were also shot illegally.

Wolves are strictly protected (!!!). They may be shot down if they kill sheep, for example, but each individual shot must first be approved.

Wolves have been back in Germany since the turn of the millennium. What makes conservationists happy, worries animal owners – the number of wolf cracks has also risen sharply in recent years (!!!).

In contrast, there is no confirmed wolf attack on humans.


And I mean…They all agree on lies, harm, and propaganda.
Hunter, farmer, politician, press…
The German press has become a hideous servant of German politics.
Hunters and farmers decide the life and death of the wolf, the politicians only approve.

The farmers complain when once a year the wolf takes its food from their herds.
The farmers will slaughter their animals anyway – more cruel and senseless than the wolf does.
And with every loss, the farmers get compensation.

The hunters, on the other hand, run to the aid of the farmers, animal killers always keep looking together.
And then we also have the press, which feeds and strengthens the hatred against these animals with dirty arguments.

Editor-in-chief of the New York Times, John Swinton, in 1880 stated:

“The business of us journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie freely, to falsify, to crawl at the feet of Mammon and our country and his Selling people for their daily bread … We are the tools and vassals of rich people behind the scene.

We are the puppets, they pull the strings and we dance.
There is not one of you who dares to express an honest opinion”.

This article proves Swinton’s opinion down to the last detail.
