life without rights

“When all the animals that have suffered in vain
would scream at the same moment
an incredible catastrophe would devastate the world
and the few surviving people would become deaf
and wander around in madness. “

(Text under the Foto) : “We pay tribute to the brave and selfless women and men who take it upon themselves to make the films and pictures in animal factories and slaughterhouses that we can then use to educate the world about these terrible conditions”

“Being an animal rights activist is a tough job
We should show respect to these people
for their commitment, instead of complaining:
Why do you just film instead of helping?

The fact is: animal rights activists help the animals,
by documenting and forwarding them to the responsible authorities or media.
Often animal rights activists on site can do nothing more than a document, as they often put themselves in danger.

Received charges of assault and theft, in addition to the offense: trespassing
I myself document the animal suffering in stables in order to report violations to the responsible veterinary office, with luck the animals will be confiscated
And yes, it breaks my heart every time I can’t save the animals.
Try to save e.g. 10,000 turkeys from the next fattening facility yourself, right?

200 piglets, or 36 cattle, in which the latter – among other things – I have already succeeded
So please, don’t blame animal rights activists who put themselves in danger to help animals

Please help us by sharing the posts and drawing the attention of as many people as possible to animal cruelty.

Thank you very much”

The undercover investigators have our full respect.
And our heartfelt thanks
Weeks, or even months in animal farms or animal research laboratories, are confronted with incredible suffering and live permanently under the risk of being discovered.
They should be an example for all of us

My best regards to all, Venus

Netherlands bans hare and rabbit hunting

Last week the Dutch House of Representatives approved a motion to remove both the brown hare and the rabbit from the “Wildlife List”.
This means that it would no longer be possible to hunt these species in the Netherlands in the future.

The Dutch Hunters Association criticizes the application as “unnecessary and legally unfeasible”.They say: Rabbits and brown hares would still be common and widespread in the Netherlands.

The “Partij voor de Dieren” (Party for Animal Welfare) recently tried to change the National Wildlife List in a parliamentary debate.

At the time, the party demanded that game species that are on the “Red List” be automatically removed from the list of huntable species.
Since a majority was not foreseeable at the time, the party withdrew its proposal.

Even then it was unclear whether a change in the “Wildlife List” could be legally enforced at all since the “Red List” has no legal status.
The hunters’ association claims that the animal welfare party had already tried in the past to abuse the corona crisis or the outbreak of bird flu for hunting bans.

In a renewed attempt to change the huntable species, the party was now successful.
With the support of the “Democrats 66”, the required majority for the “Partij voor de Dieren” proposal was now available.
The “Hunters` Association” accuses the “Democrats 66” of having cheated voters with the 180-degree turn shortly before the elections.
In December, the “D66” was still critical of the change to the “game list”.

As a result of the re-evaluation of the brown hare and rabbit on the basis of the updated “Red List” in 2020, both wild species were classified as “endangered”.

The hunters’ association does not want to accept the change in the game list without a fight and, if necessary, take it to the European Court of Justice (!!!)

And I mean... one thing in advance: The European Court of Justice will not work, they have other worries
They are particularly busy with the naughtiness of the Germans, as we reported yesterday.
And in this case, it’s about bigger “rabbits”!

We welcome the correct decision of the Dutch Parliament!
The great pleasure of the Dutch hunters (like all hunters), to shoot defenseless animals cowardly from ambush while looking for food, – although no one needs their flesh and skin to survive- is now over.
As murderous as they are, they will try to fight this morally very progressive decision of the Dutch parliament by all means.

But the days of hunter dominance in media, politics, and society are finally over.

There is no such thing as a hunter ideology, and the majority of society regards hunters as militant, harmful weirdos.

USA: Pets Dying In Texas Freeze As Owners Dump Them In Sub Zero Temperatures.

Animals have been hit hard as winter storms continued to wreak havoc across the US and care groups scrambled to respond to calls of abandoned pets in brutal below-freezing temperatures.

Authorities across Houston, Texas, along with investigators, have been responding to a number of calls from residents regarding pet dogs and cats struggling on the streets for days without food and frozen water bowls after they were believed to have been left there by owners.

A Texas dog owner is facing charges after eight dogs were found abandoned outside in freezing temperatures. The Houston Humane Society said the dogs were “severely malnourished” and one of the dogs had a broken jaw.

In another incident, six dogs were found abandoned by a local auto body shop in Texas, including one that had died.

Millions of people in the state are reeling under severe winter storms that has led to frigid temperatures, power outages, water shortage and pipe burst at homes. Officials have issued warnings against leaving dogs outside unattended.

Harris County Sheriff, Ed Gonzalez, warned that it is illegal to leave a pet outside and unattended by use of a restraint that unreasonably limits the dog’s movement.

“Texas law requires pets to be brought inside during severe weather. It is illegal to restrain your dog under these conditions. Members of a countywide Animal Cruelty Task Force stand ready to respond,” Mr Gonzalez said.

Extraordinary scenes have been witnessed across the state, with birds found frozen to death on trees, frozen fish tanks and thousands of stranded sea turtles as temperature dipped below -18C on Monday and a second winter blast hammered cities on Wednesday.

The death toll climbed to 24 across the nation in winter storm-related incidents, including a grandmother and three children who died in Sugar Land, Texas, after they accidentally set their home on fire in an effort to stay warm.

A dozen animals, including chimpanzees and monkeys, froze to death at a Texas animal sanctuary after it lost power and staff scrabbled to use generators to keep animals warm.

Authorities in the US faced criticism for poor management as the situation continues to worsen with experts demanding an investigation to identify problems for future.

Russia Confirms First-Ever Case Of H5N8 Bird Flu Strain Being Passed To Humans | Plant Based News

Russia has confirmed the first case of a bird flu strain being passed to humans.

Officials say seven workers at a poultry plant have contracted the H5N8 variant of the virus. 

‘Possible mutations’

According to the BBC, head of Russia’s consumer health watchdog Anna Popova said all the workers are now ‘feeling well’. She also said that ‘adequate measures had been quickly taken’ to stop the disease from spreading. 

Popova added: “The discovery of these mutations when the virus has not still acquired an ability to transmit from human to human gives us all, the entire world, time to prepare for possible mutations and react in an adequate and timely fashion.”

Bird flu strain

Last year, the UK government ordered all birds to be kept inside ‘to eradicate’ avian flu.

The measures came into force on December 14, following multiple outbreaks of bird flu on UK farms.  One outbreak was discovered on a farm in North Yorkshire, where a confirmed case of the H5N8 virus saw 10,000 turkeys be killed. 

A joint statement from Great Britain’s three Chief Veterinary Officers said: “We have taken swift action to limit the spread of the disease and are now planning to introduce a legal requirement for all poultry and captive bird keepers to keep their birds housed or otherwise separate from wild birds.

“Whether you keep just a few birds or thousands, from 14 December onwards you will be legally required to keep your birds indoors, or take appropriate steps to keep them separate from wild birds. We have not taken this decision lightly, but it is the best way to protect your birds from this highly infectious disease.”
