The Corona Lottery

In Canada and the USA they want to mobilize people to vaccinate with lifelong hunting permits, weapons, etc.

Governors across the country have launched incentive programs to increase vaccination rates.
Governor Asa Hutchinson offered Arkansas citizens a free lottery ticket or a $ 20 state Game and Fish Commission voucher for vaccination.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson has launched a cash lottery program for vaccinations.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan launched such a program earlier this year.
In New Jersey, a dinner at the governor’s mansion was awarded as a prize for a vaccine raffle.
At least a dozen states, including Louisiana, have offered seven-digit awards.

A woman from Calgary, Canada just got a million dollars richer after winning one of the top prizes in Alberta’s COVID-19 vaccine lottery.

“I encourage Albertans who have not yet received their second dose to do so as soon as possible to qualify for the final drawing in late September!” (Prime Minister Jason Kenney)

“Introducing our second $ 1M vaccine lottery winner – Amie Gee of Calgary!

We still have one more $ 1M prize up for grabs.

You can enter still enter – but proof of vaccination is needed to claim the prize, so roll up your sleeve! 💉”

The state of Utah is offering free beef and year-long beef, pork, and poultry to a family of four in a lottery.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is offering $ 100 for vaccination at some vaccination sites in New York City after French fries at Shake Shack and tickets to the Brooklyn Nets failed to attract enough residents.

Meanwhile, disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was hoping that $ 5 million in free scratch cards would help people get vaccinated.

Sweepstakes and lotteries were also popular tactics in Ohio, where 10 recently vaccinated winners were given a $ 1 million jackpot, or at the Virginia IT firm Leidos, which donated 10 randomly selected employees an annual vaccination salary.

Auburn University in Alabama is giving away awards to help freshly vaccinated students return to campus learning, including $ 1,000 scholarships, meal plans, and parking permits.

“Give a man five pounds of ground beef and he will eat for a week; give him a gun and he’ll eat for a lifetime”, according to West Virginia’s Governor Jim Justice.

He offered vaccinated winners free hunting and fishing licenses, hunting rifles and shotguns, brand new pick-up trucks and also a grand prize of over $ 1 million.

And I mean…You don’t even have to be a vaccine skeptic to notice that excessive advertising for vaccinations is not necessarily good for your health. Unfortunately this is just no longer noticeable to many individuals.

Here in Germany, the chairman of the German Association of General Practitioners postulates that there is an urgent need for more public support for flu vaccinations !!
“The most important thing for the second Corona autumn will be that as many people as possible get vaccinated, not only against the corona virus, but also against the flu” he said.

Sure, of course! One could also say that no disease is any good if it not makes a big turnover in the right places
All of this only openly shows how dubious, amateurish and unprofessional the governments are currently dealing with the issue.
There is a strong tendency to suspect that they have a completely different, undisclosed agenda on their fingertips.

Fundamental rights, freedoms and personal rights are not the thing for governments.
They think more about the usability of the herd and how it can be regulated even more strictly.

South Korea: S.Korea’s Moon hints at dog meat ban amid debate over animal rights. He made similar promises years ago, but never acted on them.

WAV Comment:

We reported on the then President elect, Mr Moon; back in 2017.  You can see some of our articles that were published at the time on ‘Serbian Animals Voice’.

So where are we now ? – surprisingly, 2022 sees the election of a new President to South Korea; and suddenly, the dog farm / dog meat trade rears its head yet again.  Mr. Moon, the man who was elected as President with so many promises for the dog meat trade back in 2017 is NOT allowed to run again for President under the South Korean constitution.

We remember, and publish here, pictures of the then to be President Moon informing us all that the dog meat trade was going to be a priority issue.  We remember all the promises of things going to be done, and the pictures of Mr Moon cuddling up to dogs; who he alleged he was going to protect.

Well, to be basic, Moon has not really done much at all in his presidency.  Now we are rolling along to new elections in March 2022. The issue of the dog meat trade is suddenly rearing its campaign head again.

We hope that the next elected president will do a great deal better than Mr. Moon; who we see as being all puff and no wind when it came down to reality.  We greatly hope that the coming months will see legislation introduced which will put an end to South Korean dog meat farms for once and for all.  We, and many other welfare groups will never let this abhorrent issue die; an issue which could have been resolved years ago had the president lived up to his promises of doing something about the trade.

For the first time in a long time we are hearing rumblings of changes in the dog meat trade.  We welcome this, but based on past election promises, we are taking nothing for granted; we have been duped with false hopes and promises before.

Lets see what the next few months actually bring !

Under the South Korean constitution, the president is restricted to a single five-year term in office, meaning the incumbent president Moon Jae-in is ineligible to run for a second term.

The 2022 election will determine the office of the President of the Republic of Korea. It is expected to be held by 9 March 2022.

S.Korea’s Moon hints at dog meat ban amid debate over animal rights

SEOUL, Sept 27 (Reuters) – South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in said on Monday there might be a need to prohibit dog meat consumption amid debate over the controversial practice and growing awareness of animal rights.

While no longer as common as before, dog meat is eaten mainly by older people and is served in some restaurants and can be bought at specific markets.

Moon made the remarks after being briefed by Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum on efforts to improve the handling of abandoned animals and a mandatory registration system for dogs. read more

“After the briefing, he said time has come to carefully consider imposing a dog meat ban,” Moon’s spokeswoman Park Kyung-mee said in a statement.

It was the first time that Moon raised a ban, which is likely to give fresh momentum to debate over whether to curtail the practice.

To boost their popularity, several presidential hopefuls have pledged to ban dog meat in recent weeks, especially as dogs have become popular as pets and advocacy groups have urged South Korea to close down restaurants and markets selling dog meat.

Lee Jae-myung, governor of the country’s most populous province of Gyeonggi and a leading presidential contender from Moon’s party, has vowed to push for a ban through social consensus.

But Yoon Seok-youl, an opposition frontrunner, has said it was a matter of people’s personal choice.

A poll commissioned by animal welfare group Aware released this month said 78% of respondents believed the production and sale of dog and cat meat should be prohibited and 49% supported a consumption ban.

But, another survey by polling firm Realmeter found people were divided over whether the government should ban eating dog meat, though 59% supported legal restrictions on dog slaughter for human consumption.

Dog meat sellers have insisted on the right to their occupation, saying their livelihoods are at risk.

Corky at SeaWorld
52 years in captivity !!!

Meet Corky (orca)

Years in captivity: 52

Location: SeaWorld, San Diego, USA

Corky has been in captivity longer than any other whale or dolphin. She was taken from her family when she was only three years old. She’s been pregnant seven times and given birth four times but only two of her babies survived. The other two starved to death because the shape of the pool was not suitable for her to nurse them properly. Corky is from the Northern Resident population of orcas and she has a large family, including a brother and sister, living wild and free in the waters of British Columbia, Canada.
