EXCLUSIVE BEN PIKE  THE DAILY TELEGRAPH AUGUST 21, 2014 12:00AM

PLEASE SIGN PETITION:-https://www.change.org/p/macquarie-university-ban-dog-basher-from-teaching-medical-students-2?share_id=bjOhHLzcyo&utm_campaign=share_button_action_box&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition#

SYDNEY surgeon and lecturer Dr Nicolas Oddone’s job is to save lives but he showed little regard for the life of a dog he severely beat.

The oncologist, aged in his early 40s, was convicted of one count of animal cruelty in the Downing Centre Local Court last month after he bashed his then-girlfriend’s 2.9kg papillon pooch, named Prinni.

The former girlfriend told The Daily Telegraph the ­attack happened moments after she asked Oddone to be more gentle with her dog at his Woolwich apartment on June 10 last year.

“It was shocking … no animal­ deserves that,” she said. “Every animal deserves a basic level of treatment.” Prinni suffered 14 fractures to 12 ribs, massive internal bleeding, liver damage and a partially-collapsed lung.

In text messages tendered to the court, the girlfriend recommend that the lecturer — who she had been dating for five weeks — get help for what she said was his ­explosive his anger.

“Get some help with anger management before your anger claims any more innocent or defenceless victims­,” she wrote.

“There is no room for love when your rage prevails.

“The cost to her (Prinni’s) quality of life and the psychological impact on my family is immeasurable.”

Dr Oddone declined to comment when contacted but he was apologetic in text messages sent to his former girlfriend.

“I am sorry for the way things ended and for not having the guts to tell you the truth,’’ he wrote.

“You will never hear from me again. I am truly sorry.

“It was an honour to have met you, you taught me a lot of things in life.”

He will appear today for sentence at the Downing Centre Local Court.

The animal cruelty charge carried a potential maximum penalty of two years jail and a $22,000 fine.

New Video of Church-Sponsored “Pig Rassle” Reveals UnChristian Behavior

Comments Off

“How can children respect these pigs (or any other animal) when they are taught, to do such things?? I wonder how many of them actually go to church & learn the meaning of Christian Behaviour; if they think abusing an animal like this is acceptable…God help any animals they will one day own!! The kids allowed to witness such gross acts, are the very children we are looking to; to prevent animal abuse in the future….obviously not in this town though!! I think it’s diabolical, that humans are allowed to stress animals, in this way, for their own sick entertainment!!”

EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM SHARK:  News Release: SHARK

New video of church-sponsored “pig rassle” reveals unChristian behavior: jokes about beating and sexually abusing animals and children; Bishop of Green Bay questioned about his support.

GREEN BAY, WI – New video of a cruel and illegal “pig rassle” church fundraiser August 10 at St. Patrick Parish in Stephensville, Wisconsin documents vile behavior of the event supporters, including talk about abusing animals and children.

SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) has released a video showing the brutal and illegal human/animal fighting at the fundraiser, and today calls for an investigation.

“It is important to remember this was a Catholic Church event, yet what we saw and experienced was anything but Christ-like behavior,” said SHARK President Steve Hindi. “This included supporters joking about beating and killing pigs and sexually assaulting them and children – while young children were present and listening.”SHARK is sending the link to this video to David Ricken, the Bishop of Green Bay, and calling on him to answer why a parish under his rule is sponsoring disgusting behavior that goes against everything his religion is supposed to stand for.St. Patrick’s Parish has tried to whitewash the animal abuse they sponsor by calling it a church fundraiser,” notes Hindi.  “What this video shows is that the Parish should be spending more time teaching their members about Christ’s message of peace and love and stop teaching that abusing animals is a fun and acceptable thing to do.”
Vulgar Crowd at Parish-Sponsored Pig Abuse

Published on 20 Aug 2014

Animal abuse and child endangerment wasn’t the only thing to find at the St. Patrick Parish Pig “Rassle” event in Stephensville, Wisconsin. Let’s throw in some banter about bestiality and pedophilia for good measure.

David L. Ricken, Bishop of the Green Bay Diocese that oversees St. Patrick Parish, could have stopped this abuse, but chose not to.

You can call the Bishop to let him know what you think at 920-437-7531.

Earlier this month, SHARK released video that showed youths wallowing in mud contaminated by pig urine and excrement as they try to catch a traumatized pig. The video illustrates violations of state anti-cruelty and animal fighting laws, and child neglect laws. Spectators, organizers and participants could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.

SHARK has also learned this event was cancelled in 1995 after a Assistant District Attorney – Mitchell Metropulos, now an Outagamie County Circuit Court judge –  said the event was illegal.

Take Action!
Please contact the Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay and ask him to hold everyone involved accountable for this travesty.

POLICE: Port St. Lucie Man Beats Dog With Sawed-Off Shotgun, Holds Its Head Under Water In Tub

Comments Off

“What a moron, he needs to locked up for a very long time!”

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A 24-year-old man was arrested after severely beating his dog with a sawed-off shotgun and holding his head under water in a bathtub, then turning the gun on his girlfriend who was trying to get him to stop, police say.

POLICE    WPEC TV CBS12 News    News   Top Stories

Port St. Lucie police responded at noon Wednesday to 304 SE Walton Lakes Drive on a domestic disturbance report. They were met by a crying woman who said her boyfriend, Kyle Romain Hall, got mad at his dog for tearing things up in the apartment and pooping on the floor.

She said he yelled at the dog and hit him, which made the dog cry and howl, according to a police report. She said the more the dog cried, the more severely Hall attacked him. She said Hall tied the dog to a bathtub faucet and began hitting it in the head with a sawed-off shotgun. The dog’s howling continued, so Hall turned on the faucet and held the dog’s head under the water.

The woman said she began screaming at Hall to stop hurting the dog and her turned his attention to her, confronting her at first with a kitchen knife and then the sawed-off shotgun. She fled the apartment and called 9-1-1.

When police arrived, Hall denied all her allegations.

Police found the sawed-off shotgun behind a television in the living room.

The dog, named Scrappy, was barely conscious with swelling and severe cuts to his head. Police say Scrappy was dazed and unresponsive. Scrappy was taken to Animal Kindness Hospital for treatment.

Hall was arrested and jailed on charges of aggravated assault, possession of a short-barreled shotgun and animal cruelty.

Police seized the shotgun and a .22-caliber revolver in the home.

  1. freedom from hunger and thirst
  2. freedom from discomfort (shelter from heat and rain)

  5.  freedom from fear and distress.

EXPOSED, CANADIAN VEAL INDUSTRY

Please sign petition: http://www.cratedcruelty.ca/

From December to February 2014, a Mercy For Animals Canada investigator worked at a Délimax veal factory farm in Pont-Rouge, Quebec. Our hidden camera captured horrific animal cruelty and neglect, including:

  • Calves crammed into feces-covered wooden boxes barely larger than their own bodies
  • Baby animals chained by the neck, unable to even turn around or lie down comfortably for their entire lives
  • Animals driven mad from boredom and stress, denied even their most basic natural behaviours
  • Workers violently kicking, punching, and tormenting baby animals
  • Animals painfully stuck in the wooden slats of their crates
  • Sick and injured animals left to suffer and slowly die in their own filth without proper veterinary care

EXPERT OPINIONS

After reviewing the undercover footage, Dr. John Webster, Professor of Animal Husbandry at the University of Bristol, and Europe’s leading expert on dairy cattle welfare, stated: “In all my experience, this is the worst, cruellest system that I have ever seen, in every sense, housing, health and stockmanship. [T]he system as seen on the video is now illegal in Europe, both in regard to individual housing, and denial of access to solid feed containing sufficient digestible fibre.”

Dr. Sara Shields agreed, concluding: “Veal crates are the epitome of a poor animal housing system, and it is almost shocking to see them still being used… Studies have shown that calves tethered in stalls have higher physiological stress responses than those kept in groups or in pairs.”

DITCH VEAL, DITCH DAIRY

Veal is a direct by-product of the dairy industry. Since they will never produce milk, male calves born into the dairy industry are ripped away from their mothers’ sides shortly after birth and end up in veal factory farms like this one.

These calves spend their short, wretched lives languishing in their own waste inside a tiny wooden box. They never get to see the sun, breathe fresh air, feel the grass beneath their feet, walk, run, play, or do anything that makes life worth living. Their short lives are filled with misery, violence, and deprivation.

Although cruelty and violence are standard practice for Canada’s veal industry, caring consumers can help end the needless suffering of calves and other farmed animals by choosing a compassionate vegan diet.

“If you cant go fully vegan then help by trying to be a vegetarian & don’t drink milk (It’s made for animals offspring, not humans) drink soya milk instead. I drink Soya milk, Almond & Hazelnut are my favourites. They taste great to drink when cold & have quite a sweet taste (ditch the sugar) so it’s great in coffee & on cereals. Think about it, do you really want to be a party to the horrific & abusive ways, theses sentient little babies are kept in? Would you deny them the right to be with their mother’s??  Many people think being vegetarian means eating nut cutlets, rice & beans; personally I hate that type of stuff. Whatever recipes that require meat, can be made just as well with Quorn.  Go to my Pinterest site to see recipes made with Quorn & also the pre-made Quorn burgers, mince, chicken etc. The Linda  McCartney range of meat free foods are also delicious, especially the sausages! My daughter isn’t vegan or vegetarian like me; but she eats what I do; with no complaints because she finds it so tasty!

CRATE CRITICS

“In all my experience, this is the worst, cruellest system that I have ever seen, in every sense, housing, health and stockmanship. [T]he system as seen on the video is now illegal in Europe, both in regard to individual housing, and denial of access to solid feed containing sufficient digestible fibre.”

John Webster, PhD

“Cows are highly intelligent and sentient, feeling beings, and it’s clear that the calves in this video are suffering. Deep fear and pain can be seen in their eyes and in their behavior. Calves are just as sentient as dogs – we would never tolerate such abuse inflicted upon a dog.”

Marc Bekoff, PhD

“Psychologically, the isolation and restricted movement [of veal crates] thwarts the calves need to suckle from their dam, prevents social interaction with their mother and with other calves, severely limits mental stimulation and investigative behavior, and disallows any sort of play.”

Debi Zimmermann, DVM

“Veal stalls… we need to get rid of, plain and simple.”

Temple Grandin, PhD

“This video provides clear evidence of deliberate institutionalized animal abuse in Canada’s veal industry. Veal calves are shown imprisoned in narrow stalls on slatted floors. Many animals are chained so tightly that they can barely move or can only perform a few short movements, which they do repeatedly.”

John Sorenson, PhD

“No animal should be so physically limited in its’ movement. The calf can stand or lie in one place only. He can’t turn around, lick his back, or stretch out. The chain around his neck ensures that he can’t lie down flat (something that calves do naturally). Not surprisingly, stereotypies are common. ”

A new Mercy For Animals Canada undercover investigation at a Maple Leaf-owned hatchery in Ontario reveals chicks thrown by their fragile wings, drowned in scalding water, and ground up alive.

MAPLE LEAF MISERY

Thrown, Drowned & Ground Up Alive: Canadian Hatchery Exposed

From February to March of 2014, a Mercy For Animals Canada undercover investigator worked at Horizon Poultry — a Maple Leaf-owned hatchery in Hanover, Ontario. Our hidden camera captured horrific animal cruelty and neglect, including:

EXPERT OPINIONS

After reviewing the undercover footage, Dr. Sara Shields, a leading expert in chicken welfare, stated: “[I]n a commercial hatchery, there is very little consideration for the behavioral biology of the animals, the pain, stress and fear they may experience as they are conveyed through the equipment, and little regard for the occasional animal who is mauled by the machinery. Much better safeguards are needed to ensure that every chick is treated humanely.”

Veterinarian Dr. Mary Richardson agreed, concluding: “Because there are huge numbers of birds being processed and speed is important, birds are given no more care than if they were widgets. The workers fling, throw and drop the birds without any regard for their welfare.”

NATURE

Newly hatched chicks have well-developed nervous systems and are sensitive and fragile. In nature, chicks are protected by their devoted mothers who have been known to put their own lives at risk for their babies.

HATCHERIES

In hatcheries, each worker is expected to process over 1,700 chicks an hour by callously grabbing and throwing them. The animals are treated as inanimate objects rather than the sensitive and intelligent animals they are.

NATURE

In nature, a mother hen peeps to her chicks while they are still in the eggs, and the chicks peep back to her. When hatched, chicks stay close to their mother and find warmth, comfort, and protection under her wings.

HATCHERIES

In hatcheries, mother hens are replaced with massive machines, fast-moving conveyor belts, harsh handling  and frightening noises. Young chicks are sorted, discarded, and treated as mere cogs in a machine.

HELP END CRUELTY TO CHICKS

In nature, newly hatched chicks find warmth and comfort under their mother’s wing. In hatcheries, their mothers are replaced with massive machines, fast-moving conveyor belts, harsh handling, and frightening noises. Young chicks are sorted, discarded, and treated like mere cogs in a machine.

Although cruelty and violence are standard practice for Canada’s hatcheries, caring consumers can help end the needless suffering of chicks and other farmed animals by choosing a compassionate vegan diet.

CRUELTY CRITICS

“Workers are clearly desensitized to the animals’ suffering, joking and laughing about playing ‘football’ with chicks who have fallen from the machines, animals being boiled alive or mangled in the macerator.”

John Sorenson, PhD

In  a commercial hatchery, there is very little consideration for the behavioral biology of the animals, the pain, stress and fear they may experience as they are conveyed through the equipment, and little regard for the occasional animal who is mauled by the machinery.”

England’s Prime Minister Says He Will Ban Wild Animals from Circuses

Comments Off

BY JOAN REDDY  

England’s Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that he will work quickly to bring forward the Government’s draft bill that will ban wild animals from circuses. The bill was originally published last March, but little progress has been made since then.

 

The British animal rights organization, Animal Defender’s International (ADI),  is concerned that if the ban is not immediately enforced, the implementation date of December 2015 may be missed. Social justice campaigner Peter Tatchell, and former Conservative MEP, author, and conservationist Stanley Johnson approached Prime Minister Cameron with this concern, and asked him to swiftly move on the bill. He responded to their request by saying “[y]es, we are going to do it.”

“It is great that David Cameron told Stanley and me today that he will ban wild animals in circuses. Let’s hold him to it. Circuses deny animals their freedom and suppress their natural, wild nature through confinement, tethering and subjugation. It is wrong for circuses to subject wild animals to such physical and mental suffering. That’s why I am supporting Animal Defenders International’s campaign calling on the Government to urgently legislate a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses,” said Thatchell.

“I am very much hoping that this legislation to ban wild animals in circuses will appear in the Queen’s speech and no further delay will be experienced. Circuses that persist in using wild animals undermine conservation efforts by demeaning animals and presenting them as playthings. These animals belong in their natural wild habitat, not the circus,” said Johnson. “I applaud Animal Defenders International on its work to stop circus suffering and urge the Government to join the growing number of countries that have banned wild animal acts,” he added.

The elephant-shaped letter requesting Prime Minister Cameron to quickly move the bill forward, has been signed by celebrities that include Eddie IzzardJulian Clary,MobyMichaela Strachan, and Brian Blessed. Also, among the signatories, isEton, whom is a famous alumni of Prime Minister Cameron’s old school, as well as actor Dominic West and sustainable investment leader Ben Goldsmith.

“We are delighted that David Cameron has promised the ADI deputation that he will bring forward the ban on wild animals. So many celebrities and politicians have joined ADI to call on the Government to implement its promised ban on wild animals in circuses. After a 20 year wait the public wants to see this done and if the Government fails to deliver on this promise, it will be directly responsible for continued animal suffering,” said ADI Chief Executive, Jan Creamer.

At the moment, more than two hundred local authorities in the UK, and twenty-five countries worldwide have restricted using animals in circuses. A 2010 Defra consultation showed that 94 percent of Britain’s population opposed the use of animals in circuses, and in 2011 sixty-three MPs also agreed that the Government should ban wild animal circus acts.

Hopefully, Britain will soon be the twenty-seventh country to rescue wild circus animals from a life of captivity, abuse and exploitation.
