Brian May talks about the UK government badger cull and why it must be abandoned.

Brian May begins by saying that his talk was supposed to be a debate on the culling of Badgers in the UK. The opposition, lead by Owen Paterson (A Conservative MP who is Secretary of State for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs), didn’t show up highlighting that his argument for the killing of Badgers does not hold any ground.

Bovine TB is a disease typically endemic to cows and can spread to any lactating mammal. The strain of the virus that has been passed on to Badgers cannot easily infect humans, it’s typically a respiratory disease however in it’s advanced form it can cause legions and is a terrible way for the animal to die. The witch-hunt against badgers started when a single badger was found in 1971 to be ill and dying and from that people blamed all the badgers for the spread of TB among cattle.

This is where the stigma placed on Badgers was founded; however the badger that was found was never tested for the disease so there is no evidence for all this blame. The government plans to kills thousands of badgers this summer in West Gloucestershire, Somerset and part of Dorset. There is a skin test on cows to show TB and in one case the skin test has failed 5 times over and the disease was only discovered in the cow at the abattoir.

Over 40% of Bovine TB cases are discovered in the abattoir. It is argued that the badger cull will have an adverse affect on the spread of TB.

The issue of vaccinating cows has not been addressed. A scientific study was undertaken on badgers that were seemingly killed by the roadside and 80% of them were discovered to have died somewhere else and conveniently placed there. Brian concludes that the vaccination of cattle is the only way to go.

He uses the ban on fox hunting as an example of how the media subliminally sways public opinion in their favour but suddenly coming out with stories of foxes biting and attacking people.

Germany and its disabled authority

SOKO Animal Welfare Association -Report-

Germany again! Place names: Düdenbüttel / Stade in Lower Saxony
This time no cattle are tortured, but a pig is buried alive.
Passers-by discover live pigs among a pile of dead animals.

People like to accuse us of informing the authorities too late and practicing vigilante justice.

Therefore: 5 minutes after receipt of the video of the courageous passers-by, SOKO Animal Welfare Association calls the Stade police, 10 minutes later the written criminal complaint was issued.

Police Stade just doesn’t do anything!

It was a terrible sight.
Dead pigs pile up in the blazing sun in front of the door of a pig fattening facility.
Birds peck the eyes out of the animals. Some of the carcasses are heavily decayed, one animal is apparently alive, the movements of the animal between the dead conspecifics can be clearly seen.
The second case of this kind in Lower Saxony is in a few days.

This is a particularly disgusting violation of the Animal Welfare Act. What could be worse than being buried alive?
We immediately filed a criminal complaint against the fattener with thousands of animals for violating §17 TschG.
The Stade police announced that they would send a police car immediately (!!)

Unfortunately, when asked by the police, SOKO Animal Welfare had to find out that no police officers had gone out to help the poor pig, no pig was rescued and the evidence must have been destroyed in the meantime at the carcass disposal.

Update: In the meantime the police have corrected their original statement from this morning and announced that a police car was on site.

However, one could not have met the owner of the facility, nor could a living animal have been found in the numerous dead pigs.
In addition, the police could not find our ad either (!!)
(Of course we have the confirmation of receipt)

The fattening facility has a history: The monster barn with over 5000 pigs was even illegally built.
Animals have been illegally kept there for years since 2013, and operated illegally..

In the slaughterhouse in Düdenbüttel near Stade, illegally ill and injured cattle were systematically slaughtered and the meat traded across the EU.
The company’s animal transporters dragged the animals brutally and with full consciousness into the vehicles using a winch.

This failure of the authorities shows once again why the direct intervention of animal rights activists is necessary, because the police cannot be relied on for animal welfare.

The sad thing: if the animal rights activists had acted directly, they would now be on the run from the police.

And I mean…New, terrible news every few days … and again this ignorant, this good-for-nothing, the German authorities…
They are not even ashamed to pretend that they allegedly did not find the criminal complaint ?????
A shame!

The German Animal Welfare Act is not even worth the paper it is on.

This is a banana republic here. Of course, they couldn’t find the living animal, it was finally dead or an employee quickly brought it around the corner.

Germany … Why are we actually paying taxes for a civil servant apparatus that no longer works?
Why do we pay the corrupt official veterinarians when they are usually on the payroll of the animal exploiters who monitor them or, more precisely, to whom they sign that everything is great?

Many thanks to SOKO animal rights activists, they do the worst job for all of us.

My best regards to all, Venus

USA: Horses Reportedly Kept for Illegal Slaughter and Stored With Decomposing Animals Deserve Justice – Petition.

Petition Link:

Horses Reportedly Kept for Illegal Slaughter and Stored With Decomposing Animals Deserve Justice – Animal Petitions

Target: Chandler, Arizona City Prosecutor Elizabeth Herbert

Goal: Ensure man charged with cruelty to horses faces maximum punishment.

Three horses were reportedly neglected and starved until they became so malnourished that they needed immediate medical attention. Police reportedly found the unfortunate animals on a ranch belonging to Taha Hussain, after receiving a tip from a concerned neighbor. Hussain has since been arrested on six total counts of alleged animal cruelty offenses. After obtaining a proper search warrant, the police reportedly went back to seize the horses and examine the rest of the property. During this investigation, they claimed to have additionally found multiple animal remains and tools for slaughtering, leading them to believe that Hussain had been slaughtering animals for profit without a license.

The horses, all aged 17-20, are currently under the care of the Arizona Department of Agriculture, where they are being treated for their injuries and nursed back to health. They were apparently forced to live in dangerous and unsanitary conditions near other animal remains, creating multiple small wounds across their bodies and a breeding ground for possible infection. Hussain was taken by officers to the Maricopa County Jail for alleged animal cruelty crimes and slaughtering without a license.

The animals will be re-homed and allowed to live out the rest of their lives in peace. The same cannot be said for the other animals allegedly slaughtered, who’s improper disposal appears to be nothing short of cruel. Sign the petition below to demand that, if found guilty, Hussain will face the maximum penalty for the animal cruelty charges.


Dear Prosecutor Herbert,

As prosecuting attorney in Chandler, you are in a unique position to help with an important case. Officers in your district recently arrested Taha Hussain on six counts of alleged animal cruelty, reportedly finding his property covered in animal remains and tools for slaughtering, for which Hussain reportedly does not possess an official license. They also seized three apparently neglected horses, transporting them to an animal hospital for immediate care.

While it is too late for any slaughtered animals to be saved, the three remaining deserve justice for what they apparently went through. They were reportedly found in unsafe conditions, covered in surface injuries, and emaciated from hunger. Please do everything in your power to ensure that Hussain receives the maximum penalty if found guilty and is banned from further animal ownership in the future.

UK: Petition – Strengthen the 2004 Hunting Act.

Strengthen the 2004 Hunting Act

Add your support at:

Petition · Strengthen the 2004 Hunting Act ·

At least 84% of the UK population are in favour of fox hunting being illegal and yet there were attempts to weaken the act. The Act needs strengthening to ensure people are discouraged from participating in illegal hunting and for those caught hunting, the penalty and arrest needs to be more severe.

 We would like to see section 6 of the Act to be amended to add provision for a prison sentence of up to six months for illegal hunting. Additionally there should be a ‘reckless’ clause which will make it an offence for anyone to ’cause or permit’ one or more dogs to seek out, chase, injure or kill a wild mammal. The widespread flouting of the ban continues to this day and these measures along with several other reforms could ensure our wildlife is protected as it should be.

For more details on necessary amendments to strengthen the 2004 hunting Act, please follow this link which features a Hunting Act Amendment Bill.

England: (South London) – Motorists Patiently Wait For Ducks To Cross Road At Formal Crossing Point. Cool !

Aisling Roche-Morris, a NHS Senior Clinical Psychologist, filmed the moment while out cycling on the morning of August 28

Pretty cool – when in London, …….

Quack march!

Moment ducks stop the traffic as they waddle across a zebra crossing in single file

I am pleased to say that all the motorists did not seem to have a problem waiting for the ducks to cross – this would not have happened everywhere in the world.

But then, they were using the ‘zebra crossing’; the official crossing point for pedestrians to use when wanting to cross the road.

Seems like they have all got the road sense they need.
