India: cockfight ends fatally- for the cock owner!

In India, a man was killed by his fighting cock.
The 45-year-old was holding the animal in his arms shortly before an illegal cockfight when the bird began to squirm, as the newspaper “India Today” reports.

The man had already tied blades to the claws of his rooster to make it more dangerous to the opposing bird.
But that was his own undoing: The rooster caught the man with the sharp, seven-centimeter-long blade in the groin area.

Gamecock’s owner bled to death on the way to the hospital!!

The incident occurred on February 22nd in the center of the country in Jagital (around 1,400 kilometers south of New Delhi).
According to the current status of the investigation, the rooster is said to have tried to tear itself away.

An approximately three-inch blade is tied to the cocks leg so that they fatally injure the enemy bird. The people around bet on the outcome of the fight.
While trying to break free, the rooster stabbed its owner in the groin with the blade.
Part of the main artery also runs there.

When his owner tried to recapture him, he was fatally wounded.
The 45-year-old started bleeding so badly that he couldn’t even make it to the hospital.
He died of massive blood loss on the way to the clinic.

The rooster, which apparently had no desire to fight with a conspecific, was caught and is now in police custody.
Not because it is to be tried, but because it is an important piece of evidence in the investigation into the death of its owner.
Hahn is now guarded by the police

According to theNew Indian Express”, the fighting cock stayed at the local police station for a day, then was taken to a nearby chicken farm.
An officer was posted to check that the feathered witness was being treated well.
The rooster is to be guarded until the procedure is completed.

The police are now investigating 15 suspects who are said to have organized or participated in the illegal cockfight.
They now face charges of negligent homicide, illegal betting, and illegal cockfighting.
Such events are actually forbidden in India.
In rural areas, however, it happens again and again that this is violated.

And I mean…Yes!! And that’s not a Hollywood invention, it is reality!

Usually, it is planned that the roosters die brutally and in rows during cockfights, this time a slave owner was caught.
A curious situation that happened there…

Many would speak of karma.
But actually, this is called an occupational risk.

Whatever- that brings us in a good mood!

My best regards to all, Venus

Toronto Pig Save: together we can stop Tru Harvest!

2. März 2021 —

Toronto Pig Save

Toronto’s most infamous slaughterhouse reopened on March 1st under new management.

Sign our new petition to STOP Tru Harvest!

Ryding Regency Meat Packers was ordered to permanently close due to e-corona contamination in December 2019. But yesterday, with the same general manager, Tru Harvest opened its doors at the same location to kill 83,200 cows and baby calves per year.

The majority of the mother cows are pregnant at the time of slaughter.

Activists from Toronto Pig Save and Toronto Cow Save held joint actions yesterday outside the CFIA offices in Toronto at midday and held a cow vigil outside Tru Harvest Meats from 1:30 pm to 3 pm to protest this egregious atrocity and demand the license for Tru Harvest be withdrawn.

Bearing witness at an Animal Save Movement vigil.

“Slaughterhouses across Canada have been the site of many of the country’s worst COVID-19 outbreaks, and it’s indefensible that the provincial and federal governments would be allowing this business to re-open,” says Jenny McQueen, an activist with Toronto Pig Save.

“Dairy is a leading cause of environmental degradation, as well as being directly linked to negative health outcomes. We’re calling on the federal government to cease subsidies that are going towards propping up a collapsing cow milk industry that kills mother cows once their dairy production slows and ‘veal’ calves under 12 months old who have not been given the chance for life.

We also call on the federal government and the CFIA to withdraw the license for Tru Harvest Meats and shut them down.”

If you live in Toronto, join us for our weekly cow vigils, Tuesday mornings 10 am – 12 pm at St. Helen’s slaughterhouse, 1-3 Glen Scarlett Rd (opposite the proposed site of the new slaughterhouse).
Toronto Pig Save has launched a petition to close down Tru Harvest. Please sign and share widely.

Together we can STOP Tru Harvest!

Petition 2:

And I mean…We must not give up, the fight for animal liberation goes on, and not least because some activists have even given their lives for animal rights

Regan Russell, 65, was violently beaten and killed by a pig truck outside Sofina’s Fearmans slaughterhouse on Friday, June 19, 2020.

She was with six other activists at a vigil in Toronto to give water to pigs on one of the hottest days of the year. She attended vigils regularly, and that day Regan was there to oppose Ontario’s “ag-gag” Bill 156, which had been passed two days earlier.


She is gone, but not forgotten, she will always be remembered.
