SIGN: Justice for Sumatran Elephant Brutally Decapitated, Tusks Hacked Off By Poachers

 

Poachers left the corpse of a 40-year-old Sumatran elephant to rot on an Indonesian plantation after hacking off the majestic animal’s head.

“The elephant’s head had been cut off and its severed trunk was found a metre away from the body,” said Suharyono, head of a local conservation agency, in a statement. “We suspect the elephant was hunted and killed, and then its head was cut off to remove the tusks.”

The Sumatran elephant is listed as “critically endangered.” According to the World Wildlife Fund, “nearly 70 percent of [their] habitat has been destroyed in one generation.”

Poaching has also skewed the breeding rates for these magnificent creatures, making it even more difficult for the species to survive.

Asian Species Expert Dr. Barney Long notes, “we could possibly see the Sumatran elephant be restricted to just a few remote populations within our lifetimes.”

Sign this petition today to urge the Indonesian government to do everything in their power to bring these poachers to justice, and work to protect the remaining animals. The Sumatran elephants must be protected before all hope is lost.

France: 158 Wild Boar Killed by Physcho Hunters In One Day.

FRAN0001

 

boar france

The killing of 158 wild boar in a single day’s hunting in eastern France has sparked anger in the region and accusations of “carnage”, even if the hunters were within their allowed quotas.

The boar were killed in a “battue” in which beaters drove the game towards the 82 hunters last Wednesday in the eastern Ardennes region.

Local officials said the hunters were within their rights as they had still not attained their quotas for the season of some 300 animals.

But a participant in the hunt described the scene in a report in the local Ardennais newspaper, denouncing the extent of the killings as a true “carnage” that had left him shaken.

And the president of the hunting federation for the Ardennes, Jean-Pol Gambier, said that “such an image for hunting cannot be supported, we cannot allow this kind of excess.”

He said that the “exceptional” number of individuals killed was “intolerable”.

Cited in a local paper, he added that he “strongly condemned” the number of animals killed, saying it “significantly damages the image of hunting.”

“I am overcome by this carnage, even if there is a need to regulate (numbers),” Claude Maireaux, head of a local nature protection group said.

Hunters in France insist that their practice is helpful to nature and is rooted in the country’s traditions, even in the face of growing protests by animal rights groups.

Germany: how the hunters murder foxes

 

banane rep deutschlandpg

 

Every 6 seconds in Germany, a wild animal is killed by a hunter.

 

As a hobby and murder lust, hunters kill up to half a million foxes each year in the most cruel way – many of the animals are “only” shot or literally crushed and mutilated in traps.

Foxes serve the hunters as a living target; There is no reason for the massive hunting of the predators, neither from a biological point of view nor from a health point of view. Most politicians in Germany are themselves hunters and the closest lobby of these psychopaths who call themselves “hunters”.
For this reason, the senseless and brutal killing of wild animals continues massively.

jäger-

Of course, one does not speak in public of shooting fun or bloodlust, no! one hears about the protection of the small game, the fight against rabies, the fox tapeworm or the mange … Yes! hunters want us to be thankful for them, because they are ahead of us protect the unruly danger emanating from the deep, gloomy forest, because they – of course always for us – allegedly keep the overall ecological balance within limits!!

Fuchswochen 5jpg

One thing must be clear: The contribution of hunting to the protection of species in Germany is negative: The stocks of pheasants, partridges, hares or lap-hens go back continuously, although year after year almost half a million foxes are killed. The upcoming winter hunt for the fox is accompanied by considerable animal cruelty.

_Fuchswochen

Despite intensive adjustments, the number of foxes in Germany has remained largely constant for over 20 years. Due to the high harvest losses year after year, the reproduction also remains at a high level. In heavily hunted areas, females give birth to three to four times as many puppies as in non-hunted areas.

Where not hunted, the strong social fabric among the red foxes ensures a natural birth restriction. In the canton of Geneva, fox hunting has been prohibited for over 40 years and in Luxembourg since 2015 as well. In both countries, there is no evidence of an increase in fox population. So it is also in most German national parks, in which Fuchs & Co. are not hunted.

Winter is the mating season of foxes. During this time, they are careless and easier to spot for the hunter because of the snow cover in many areas. Therefore, during the full moon weeks in January and February, so-called “fox weeks” are proclaimed all over the country.
During a defined period as many hunters as possible should kill the fox. As a result, the psychopaths  enjoy each of several dozen dead foxes.

Jäger mit toten Füchsen

The hunting during the mating season of foxes is a criminal animal cruelty. In January and February, many vixen are already pregnant. If they do not die in a hail of bullets themselves, then are the fathers of their future puppies the victms. The fox boys, however, are needed as providers for the young family. If they fail, the survival probability of their kittens drops dramatically.

Fuchs mit Jungeno

To train dogs to fox hunt, the hunters in Germany developed some criminal (and illegal) methods.
For example: the sealing system!

What is a sealing system?
Hidden from the public, of course, the hunter trains his dogs to track foxes in their burrows and either “blow them out”, ie to drive them to the hunter in front of the gun, or to “strangle” them in the construction.
The dogs  are trained on live foxes, which are caught for this purpose and caged in cages. The hunters thus violate the Animal Welfare Act §3, paragraph 7.

schliefanlagejpg

Young foxes are preferred. They are still relatively inexperienced, relatively easy to catch in life traps and are not such a big threat to the dogs when fighting.
The hunter does not care about them. The foxes are locked up and get some food thrown into the cage so they do not starve.

fuchs mit jaeger_1038

Normally, neighbors or walkers observe that the foxes weep miserably and try to escape to freedom and run back and forth in the cages. No construction, no hiding place or protection.
Nothing!!
Only the bare ground and the grid in the eye, which denies access to visible freedom.

schliefanlage01

Layout and function.

The dogs should learn to be able to hunt through the corridors of the Burrow behind the foxes. For this purpose, an artificial structure with several aisles of concrete tubes or plates is built, which meet again and again in different places and converge. About slider, lid and grid, the hunter decides how far the fox can escape and whether the dog should reach him or not.
A fox is driven into the tube. The dog behind. In contrast to the real fox, the fox does not know about these courses. Besides, he does not know which courses are blocked and which are not.
Hastened by the dog, the fox tries to flee and logically flees in the direction the hunter forces him to by shutting off the corridors.

fuchs in schliefanlage mit Hund_o

At first, the hunter usually takes care that the dog can not reach the fox. But that does not change the stress the fox is exposed to. In fear of death, he tries to escape. Not infrequently he suffers from a heart attack or shock.

But what does that matter? Then he is killed or the dog may kill him for “reward”.

NJ_AP_16_2016 (AT)   Aufmacher alternativ (DIT)

In the further hunting dog training a direct confrontation between dog and fox is wanted, whereby the hunter looks after his dog.
If the dog has caught the fox safely, the hunter watches in amusement as the fox is mauled by the dog.
Should the fox succeed in fending off the dog, or is there even a risk of injury to the dog, the hunter naturally helps his dog to kill the fox.

As of the fall, sealing systems are usually taken out of service.

In winter, no hunter feels like training dogs. Foxes that are still in the plant are killed by the hunter or have to give their life to the last dog of the season.
No fox leaves a hammock alive!

A section from the book of hunter and psychoanalyst Paul Parin, that tells us very honestly and very professionally about the sick sadism of these psychopaths:

“Hunting opens an avenue that can lead either to crimes including even homicide or to sexual lust” – this quotation is not from some animal-rights activist, but from a hunter himself: Paul Parin, prestigious neurologist, author and oft lauded psychoanalyst, and honorary doctor of the Klagenfurt University, Germany.

We non-hunters cannot judge if this statement is true or not.

In any case, Parin writes in his book “The Passion Of The Hunter” about his passionate fervour, the fever of the hunt, following:

“Since my first hunting adventures I am convinced: hunting opens an avenue that can lead either to crimes including even homicide or to sexual lust, no matter when and where it takes place… Hunting cannot be up for grabs without pre-meditated killing.

Passionate hunters want to kill.

Hunting without murdering would be an expression that would annul itself… For it is all about passion, greed, lust – a fever actually – […], sex and crime, lust and crime, death and sexual murder.”
(Parin, Paul: “Die Leidenschaft des Jägers” – “The Passion Of The Hunter”, 2003).

Yes! It is only a minority in the German population of 0.45%, which (due to their perverse pleasure) the murder on defenseless animals in the forest (still) operates.

If one can be enthusiastic about murdering innocent and utterly defenseless animals in such a way, one is no more than a miserable asshole, and does not deserve something like own human rights in any way.

It`s time to hunt the Hunters

Lebanon: mass murder of migratory birds

 

libanon-flagge-jpg

 

New committee video shows night hunting for migratory birds: During our bird protection camp in Lebanon, committee staff documented the extent of illegal night hunting for migratory birds. The video can be found here:

 

Lebanon – At Danniyeh dozens of hunters have been spotted hunting electronic owls and powerful searchlights for sheltered owls, goiters, corncraps and many other migratory bird species.

Our new committee video shows for the first time this shocking footage.
We hope that the publication will pay more attention to the public and to the authorities for this little-noticed form of environmental crime.

Especially nowadays, when people in Lebanon take to the streets every day against corruption and for more democracy, environmental issues are also increasingly perceived.

 

But there are also happy events in this sad and very dangerous job, and that is the rescue of a small, pretty owl in Cyprus.

Little Owl Saved: A team from the Committee Against Birds slaughter  (CABS) has found an active trap tomorrow morning near the small town of Vrysoulles in Cyprus.

kleine eulepg

They were just in time, because on one of the brutal adhesive traps had caught a little owl. The little owl was quickly released again into freedom. Our team should not have arrived much later, because a short time later the poacher appeared to control his traps. It would undoubtedly have killed the owl.

eule Zyperno

The hunting supervisor, who was informed by us, was able to put the offender on his property two hours later – for the 77 lime rods he has to pay a fine of only € 250!

He will hardly be impressed by that – we will have to keep an eye on his garden.

My comment:There are always these perverse lust killers among us…

People have divided the earth among themselves as property and go so far as to deny the animals on their property the right to live – that is why animals are killed.

Of the many comments that appear in Facebook, you realize that many come up with an extensive anger and there are many who also ask why the Komitte still acts non-violently.
Well, yes! if all these commentators realize that these psychopaths have Kalashnikov, then a non-violent behavior remains the only option. And the few know that the EU allows the shooting of 53 million wild birds (many strictly protected) just for fun!

Wars, torture, persecution, rape, violence, killing and execution as power instruments for the control of fellow human beings are no longer accepted in our cultural circles.
Only in hunting this power may be lived out.
Because in this bloody and mighty war it is the defenseless animals which are delivered as victims.

The hunters lead this war against the wild animals. We will be able to speak of peace in a civilized society when the pointless bloodshed has come to an end.

France: pregnant woman killed by dogs during hunt with hounds

 

Animal rights activists urge halt to hunting season after body found near Villers-Cotterêts

A pregnant woman has been killed by dogs while walking her own dog in a forest in northern France during a hunt with hounds, investigators have said.

The body of the 29-year-old woman was found on Saturday in a forest outside the town of Villers-Cotterêts, about 90km (55 miles) north-east of Paris, the prosecutor’s office in nearby Soissons said.

An autopsy showed that she had died of “bleeding after several dog bites to the upper and lower limbs and the head,” prosecutor Frederic Trinh said on Tuesday. Some of the bites were “postmortem”, he added.

Trinh said that tests had been carried out on 93 dogs, including some hounds from the hunt and five dogs belonging to the woman herself, to try to establish which ones attacked her.

The police have launched an investigation into manslaughter by dog attack.

According to local newspaper Le Courrier Picard, the dogs were hunting deer.

The woman had called her partner while walking her dog to report the presence of “threatening dogs”, the prosecutor’s office said. It was he who later discovered her body.

Brigitte Bardot, president of her eponymous animal welfare foundation, declared herself deeply shocked on hearing of the case and in a letter urged Élisabeth Borne, the French minister for ecological transition, to suspend “immediately all hunt authorisation for this season”.

But the Paris-headquartered French hunting association said that “nothing shows the involvement of hunting hounds in the death of this woman”.

France has more than 30,000 hunt hounds in total and the association stated that “these dogs are trained to hunt a particular animal and obey man in all circumstances”.

Don`t be an asshole and despise Lucy Jaine

 

new-zealand-flag

Hunters like to claim that they don’t get perverse pleasure out of killing, but these “sexy” hunting photos strongly suggest otherwise. Lucy Jaine, a hunter from New Zealand, seemingly enjoys killing animals and then posing for provocative photo shoots with their dead bodies, often with their blood smeared on her.

Hunter-Lucy-Jaine-sexy fotos-With-Corpses

Jaine and her partner say that they go hunting five to eight times a month and take their three young children. They commonly kill pigs, deer, chamois, tahrs, goats, rabbits, and wallabies before she apparently strips down for bloody, nearly naked photo sessions.

Hunter-With-Corpses-2

The couple appears to use dogs as if they were mere hunting tools and frequently shoots animals but will also stab them to death. “If it’s a pig hunt, we bring the dogs and when we get to the spot we collar them up and follow them in,” she said. “We then stick the pig or shoot it, gut it then carry it out.”

It certainly doesn’t appear that she hunts because of some absurd sophistry about not wanting animals to suffer. All the evidence suggests that she does so for the same reason all hunters do: She enjoys killing. And she clearly enjoys attention.

And I mean: Both the serial killer and the violent hunter think he’s involved in something important. Conspicuously, brain anomalies are detected in serial killers.
Violence leaves traces in the brain after a short time.

It’s time for us to recognize hobby hunting as what it really is: a pastime for psychopaths with low moral hygiene.

EU: Member States should protect their wolves, says the European Court of Justice.

Member States should protect their wolves, says the European Court of Justice

wolves7

The Court of Justice of the European Union has confirmed the strict protection of the wolf in Europe, saying that hunting permits should be delivered only in exceptional cases, and as a very last resort after non-lethal measures have been adequately implemented and have failed.

This good news for the species came last week when the EU Court of Justice (EUJC) delivered its decision on the permits granted by the Finnish Wildlife Agency to kill wolves – a seriously endangered species in Finland, with only around 200 individuals left – to prevent poaching and harm to hunting dogs.

The decision stresses that the wolf is a strictly protected species, and that the provisions of the EU Habitats Directive must be interpreted in light of the precautionary principle in Article 191(2) TFEU. In other words, if there is any risk (due to a lack of scientific data) that a hunting permit will adversely affect the conservation of the wider wolf population, then it should not be granted.

“The EUCJ decision is great news for wolves, and provides clear guidance on how derogations according to the Habitats Directive should be delivered. Member States’ efforts should focus on preventing conflicts and ensuring coexistence with the wolf and other strictly protected species, instead of calling for hunting permits,” says Reineke Hameleers, Director of  Eurogroup for Animals. “We call on the European Commission to take into consideration these important EUCJ conclusions when updating the guidance document on the strict protection of Animal Species of Community Interest under the Habitats Directive.”
