DURING the last 10 years a total of 7,744 small cetaceans of five different species (58,897 cetaceans of at least six species over the last 50 years) have lost their lives in the Faroe Islands grindadráp hunts.

Sea Shepherd UK, a marine conservation charity working to defend ocean wildlife and habitats, is offering a financial incentive to the Faroe Islands of One Million Euros in total over the next 10 years to bring to an end the grindadráp.

The one million Euros will be payable over ten instalments of 100,000 Euros at the end of every calendar year for 10 years starting January 2019 with the first instalment of 100,000 Euros on the 1st January 2020.

All of the incentive payments must only be spent in the Faroe Islands (with documented proof provided to Sea Shepherd UK) on the following projects:

1. Promoting Eco-friendly tourism to the Faroe Islands

2. Establishing cooperative whale/dolphin watching businesses in small communities around the Faroe Islands

3. Provision of teaching materials or specialist lectures to Faroese children on Marine Conservation

4. Training to Faroese citizens in Marine Mammal Rescue techniques so that stranded cetaceans can be saved whenever possible

Each yearly payment of 100,000 Euros will only be made if ZERO cetaceans are deliberately hunted and killed in the Faroe Islands throughout the entire preceding 12-month period. If during any year a cetacean is deliberately killed in the Faroe Islands, then the current and subsequent yearly payments will be cancelled.

“This offer has been made direct to the government of the Faroe Islands on the 25th September 2018,” said Sea Shepherd UK Chief Operations Officer, Robert Reed.

My Comment: She Shepard was often classified as a terrorist organization!!
Because of their brave activism against Japanese fishing fleets, which had illegally killed whales in forbidden sea zones.
And these “terrorists” now give 1 million euros to stop the murder of these animals.
Not a house to buy and ten years holiday in Mallorca to do.
But to save a few thousand whales from the knife of the battles!
We hope it works.
Because for many, the intoxication of murder is stronger than money…

My best regards, Venus

 

 

USA: Update – Progress – US House Votes to Ban Dog And Cat Meat.

USA-Flagge

Regarding our recent post on dog and cat meat in the United States – SOME POSITIVE NEWS – Thanks to all who supported this amendment:

 PROGRESS: US House Votes to Ban Dog And Cat Meat

 

PROGRESS: US House Votes to Ban Dog And Cat Meat

In a huge step forward in the fight to ban the consumption of dog and cat meat in the US, the House of Representatives passed the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act 2018  (H.R. 6720) in a voice vote this week.

The bill — sponsored by Republican Rep. Vern Buchanan and Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings —  bans the slaughter, transport, possession, and trade of dogs and cats for human consumption. It also outlaws the trade of dog and cat meat between states and internationally, with a maximum fine of $5000. Currently, only six states have regulations banning dog and cat meat.

“As the House of Representatives also calls for the end of the dog and cat meat trade globally, it is important to that we hold ourselves to the same standards we wish to see in others,” said a statement released by Alcee Hastings following the bill’s success. “ H.R.6720 makes that commitment, and I urge the Senate to take up this important bill without delay.”

The next step is for the bill to pass through Senate and be enacted by the president.

“More than half the households in America have a dog or cat as part of their family,” Congressman Vern Buchanan said. “We should send a clear message that slaughtering these beloved animals for food is unacceptable and will be punished.”

A further resolution was passed in which the House calls upon numerous countries, such as China, South Korea, Indonesia and more, to join the US in banning the dog and cat meat trade. The dog meat industry in these countries is horrific, with tens of millions of animals brutally slaughtered every year.

“There is no place in our compassionate society for these practices,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney. “This bill is a reflection of America’s values, and sends a strong message to all nations that we will not stand for this inhumane and cruel treatment.”

If you haven’t done so already, sign Lady Freethinker’s petition in support of this bill, ensuring that the Senate supports this important step for animal welfare.

No real reason for this; except maybe we need some time out.  I just love ‘The Cure’ (Fascination Street) and I have been a good ‘Depeche Mode’ follower in the past – Enjoy – Mark.

USA: Right Now It IS Legal To Slaughter and Eat Dogs And Cats in44 States of the USA. So Take Action !

USA

Yes, it IS currently legal to slaughter and eat dogs and cats in 44 states of the USA.

 We are closer than ever…
…to banning dog and cat meat throughout the entire United States!

Shockingly, it is legal to slaughter and eat dogs and cats in 44 states of the US, with no federal law barring this brutal practice. But last week, the House of Representatives voted to pass H.R.6720, the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act. Now, we just need the Senate to pass this important bill, and the president to sign it into law.

Speak out now to help make dog and cat meat illegal in the US.

 

TAKE ACTION

 

 

 

 

As we fight to stop dogs and cats throughout Asia from being kidnapped, tortured and brutally killed by meat dealers, we must finally outlaw the killing of companion animals in the USA.
