The Boston Globe’ charge against bulls and praised the veto de Catalunya to the party

Comments Off on The Boston Globe’ charge against bulls and praised the veto de Catalunya to the party

“Please note this has been translated from Spanish”

The debate over bullfighting has come to Massachusetts (USA). The newspaper The Boston Globe has one devoted to publishing in which charges the “grotesque spectacle” , praised the veto imposed on the run in Catalonia and the Canary Islands and suggests that Spain should disappear this tradition.

The bullfighter Manuel Jesus ‘El Cid’, in Las Ventas, on May 22. JuanJo Martin | Reuters

In his editorial, ‘The Boston Globe’ considered, noting the drop in the number of runs and the decline of the Spanish fans for the bulls, that currently “there is no romance or honor” on the run.The paper notes that there is a “fight” but “torture an animal to enjoy the mass”. And remember that even a declared admirer of the bulls as the American writer Ernest Hemingway was “honest enough” to recognize that what fascinated him the party was “the spectacle of death”.

“THE TIME HAS PASSED BULLS”

The journal welcomes Spanish that increasingly reject “as entertainment” and stresses that the parliaments of Catalonia and the Canary Islands banned bullfighting and that these are no longer issued on public television.

By contrast, notes that the  Spanish Government declare bulls weigh cultural interest . Given this possibility, the newspaper of Boston takes sides and nostalgic suggests that the bulls should “accept the reality”, which in the opinion of the newspaper is that “the bulls are inhumane and their time has passed.” “Spain’s contributions to Western culture have been many glorious, but the grotesque spectacle of torturing bulls to death for amusement is not one of them,” he concludes. “Well said, its way past time this horrific spectacle of killing for fun & family entertainment; be banned altogether!”

 Centers for animal rightsVITA” congratulates all the good and fun people in the world who love this wonderful art – to make people happy!Tightrope walkers, jugglers, clowns, acrobats, strongmen, gymnasts, jugglers – in the twenty-first century, the circus is no place … only trained animals! After all, the atmosphere of joy can not be kept where there are slaves and oppression.

In civilized countries, taming animals clearly perceived as a bad taste, and most Europeans prefer circuses without violence. In Russia, unfortunately, circuses with animals are considered traditional entertainment and trainers continue to spread the myth of the humanity of their profession.

But once all the secret becomes clear! To dispel the myth of humanity circuses with animals we had a unique investigation, first implemented in Russia. During the year (2012-2013) cameras recorded the event in one of the typical circus, which was set up to work activist “Vita”.

Search Circus was performed spontaneously, it is found that the selected circus is considered one of the best circuses in Russia. The investigation was conducted solely for the

Charlie beat the rehearsals

purpose of the public – to convey to the Russians accurate information on the status of animals in the circus and circus dressage, which a priori is never humane.

“I took this step, knowing that this is the only thing that I can help animals – circuses prisoners – said an employee of” Vita “XXXXXXX. – People need only TRUTH that this age-old industry, based on tyranny collapsed like a house of cards . idillisticheskie My idea of ​​the circus changed when I was in his time behind the scenes of the circus in his hometown. I am sorry that at that time I was not in possession of the camera.

Indeed, the best evidence – it’s captured video, which, as I have been able to thoroughly study,

Kangaroo Charlie died in captivity circus

there is little about the Russian circuses. A second reason that I got a job in the circus – my desire to deeply explore the mentality of the public okolotsirkovoy – circus performers, staff, visitors – from the inside to understand the ways of solving the problem. This experience gave me a lot of food for thought …

Honored sadistic artist; Russian Murad Abdullaev.

“Johnny the monkey from the video surveys his broken fingers; caused by the sadistic beatings of trainer Murad Abdullaev. I wouldn’t mind breaking a few of his bones & horse whipping him, so he knows how much it hurts…the cruel evil bastard shouldn’t be allowed near any animals; let alone train them!”

Johnny – Broken Fingers From Training Beatings

From the account of the employee “Vita” XXXXXXX:

• “My children’s ideas about the circus changed once I got behind the scenes of Saratov circus …”
• “One day we came to the classmate, but the watch we were asked to wait a little, well,

Charlies Farewell Glance Before he died

now there are shot the bear, for the fact that he attacked the trainer … ”
• “One of the haunting moments – a bear, gone mad, pushes down on the bottom of the cage and byuschayasya her head on the low ceiling. As the ball ping-pong table. Only a measured boom-boom-boom for hours …”
• ” The sun, the sky, the people on the streets … and, on the other hand – the cells, the cries of animals, confined space from which there is no escape … ”
• “unbearable atmosphere of concentration camps. Claustrophobic. life in a concentration camp in the 21st century. With joy and smiles around ”
• “Before the next training Johnny – survey traces after yesterday’s beating, probed – everything is intact? – … and the new – the violence, beatings, Johnny cries of pain, the trainer mat …”
• “In the cells of animals spend all remaining from rehearsals, training and performances while – approximately 23 hours a day. ”

Petition text:-

To: State Duma, Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Education of Russia, Moscow Mayor, the Governor of St. Petersburg, the artistic director of Circus on Fontanka Slava Polunin

Objective: To complete the legislative ban on the use of animals in circus acts in Russia

The use of wild animals in circuses and other entertainment events associated with the forcible seizure of their natural, natural habitat, they are denied the most expensive – of liberty, forced to perform various tricks against their will, all in the name of entertainment, fun and comfort of man.

At that time, as the civilized countries have adopted legislation prohibiting participation and taming animals in entertainment, in Russia the use of animals in circuses is not regulated by any legislation. The only attempt to adopt the Federal Law “On Protection of Cruelty to Animals,” which was a section for the protection of animals used in circuses was a fiasco in 2000.

Cruelty to animals and, as a consequence, to the people, for the existence of society becomes rampant, because it is absolutely unpunished due to the gap in the law.

We, the undersigned, demand urgently adopt the Federal Law “On Protection of Cruelty to Animals.” Please sign petition:-http://www.vita.org.ru/petition/

Peñitas Police Believe Poisoning Behind Deaths of Dozen Dogs Over Weekend

Comments Off on Peñitas Police Believe Poisoning Behind Deaths of Dozen Dogs Over Weekend

May 14th – PEÑITAS — Authorities suspect someone targeted dogs in a Peñitas neighborhood with tainted meat this weekend, leaving 12 animals dead and one apparently recovering, police Chief Roel Bermea said.

GOT A TIP? Anyone with information about this or any other crime is urged to call the Peñitas Police Department at (956) 583-0050.

The Police Department is asking the public to provide any information that might lead to an arrest in connection to the crimes. Bermea said the first call to police about a dog believed to be poisoned and killed came in about 1 p.m. Sunday.

 Soon thereafter, four more calls regarding dead pets came in and, eventually, investigating officers found the total dead reached at least a dozen, the chief said. Nine dogs were found dead Sunday and three more were discovered Monday.

“Never,” Bermea said when asked whether he had encountered such a situation before. “This is a first for me. There’s somebody out there doing this.”

In many cases, the Mother’s Day holiday was dampened as families arrived home to find their pets, often thought of as members of the family, dead, he said. It appears the suspected poisonings were concentrated on three streets in a neighborhood near 3 Mile Line and Liberty Boulevard where dogs ran loose, he added.

Officers have found some meat they believe is contaminated and connected to the deaths, but continue to try to find evidence linking them together.

The chief said one citizen who found their dog seriously ill was able to feed it milk and bread after calling a local veterinarian, who advised the animal might have been poisoned.

The dog is recovering, he said. Police are still canvassing the area, but residents don’t seem to know much, the chief said.

If an arrest in the case is made, the suspect can expect to face at least one count of animal cruelty per death, he said.

“We’re asking the public to see if they have any information to let us know,” Bermea said. “We’re actually trying to find out what happened.”

Rare White Tiger Used As Pakistani Campaign Mascot Dies of Dehydration In 30C Heat

Comments Off on Rare White Tiger Used As Pakistani Campaign Mascot Dies of Dehydration In 30C Heat

  • The tiger is the symbol of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party
  • The dead tiger often appeared at rallies and belonged to a party member
  • Breed is extremely sensitive to noise and heat, says the WWF

A rare white tiger that has appeared at rallies during Pakistan’s election season has died of dehydration.

The tiger, a mascot of the conservative Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party, often appeared at events led by the party chief’s daughter Maryam Nawaz.

It fell unconscious and was taken to the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences in Lahore on Tuesday night.

The white tiger has been a frequent sight at rallies for the political party Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz – but died following 30C heat

But vets could not save the animal, which belonged to a party worker, and it died yesterday morning.

Live tigers and lions are a familiar sight to those at PML-N’s rallies. Last week a complaint was made to the Election Commission but it said the matter did not fall under its remit, reports Dawn.

The World Wide Fund for Nature said white tigers are extremely sensitive to heat and noise and that the animal could not cope with Lahore’s 30C heat and the noise of the rallies.

The WWF said it is supporting a petition by actor and conservationist Faryal Gohar at the Lahore High Court against the illegal use of wild animals at rallies.

Graphic Image Inc.:Odisha Signs MoU With Wildlife Trust Of India To Save Elephants From Being Hit By Trains

Comments Off on Graphic Image Inc.:Odisha Signs MoU With Wildlife Trust Of India To Save Elephants From Being Hit By Trains

“Please Note Graphic Image: furthest down page! Two items of related news: the first  shows yet another image of an elephant killed  by speeding train, in March  2013. In that article India’s Rail Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal stressed the need to protect the elephants from trains…the current news below is a step in the right direction!”

BHUBANESWAR: In a bid to check growing number of cases of elephants being fatally hit by trains, Odisha government today signed an MoU with the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) to develop a mitigation plan. 

The New Delhi-based WTI would identify and map the critical accident prone sites and habitats of elephants and also identify factors – ecological, physical and man-made- responsible for accidental deaths of elephants.

“WTI will prepare a detailed report on mitigation plan and implement the Rs 9.9 lakh project over a period of 12 months,” said Forest and Environment minister Bijayshree Routray after signing the MoU.

Last year, the state has witnessed death of about 13 elephants due to train hits. While seven jumbos were killed due to train accidents in Keonjhar, four in Berhampur of Ganjam district and two in Dhenkanal district.

The state government had held several meetings with the Indian Railway authorities and the Ministry of Environment and Forest(MoEF) on the issue. However, there had been no such improvement in the situation.

WTI will simultaneously organise consultations/ meetings/workshops with the staff of forest department and other stake holders departments and finalise mitigation plan and jointly implement a few identified shot term mitigation plan like signage along the railway track and awareness of train drivers, the minister said.

March 2013 –  Giant elephant killed by speeding train INSIDE nature reserve as it tries to cross track in remote northeast India

This tragic photo shows the body of a tusker elephant who died today when he was hit by a speeding train in West Bengal.

The adult elephant was struck by a train in a forest at the Buxa Tiger Reserve, a few miles from Alipurduar in north east India.

A speeding passenger train, the Guwahati-bound Somporkkranti Express, hit the elephant while he was crossing the railway line. He died instantly.

The tiger reserve where the elephant was killed is inside the Buxa National Park, which runs along India’s boundary with Bhutan.

This means that the tiger reserve serves as international corridor for elephants migrating between India and Bhutan, making a it a danger spot for train drivers.

Indian forest guards now have the difficult task of getting the huge animal off the tracks so that the train line can reopen.

Sadly this fatal collision was not an isolated incident.

As recently as December last year, five elephants were killed after they were hit by a passenger train in the eastern Indian state of Orissa.

They were crossing railway tracks with their herd.

At the moment there are around 26,000 wild elephants in India.

Although elephants are worshipped by many Indians, their shrinking habitat has made them increasingly unsafe, especially when travelling cross country.

The state of Orissa in eastern India last year issued a warning, asking trains to slow down because of moving elephants herd, but they say it was ignored.

The main reasons for elephant deaths are poaching, eating crops poisoned by farmers, and being hit by trains.

Last week, India’s Rail Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal stressed the need to protect the elephants from trains, describing the animals as ‘gentle giants’  whose lives must be safeguarded.

Mahopac Man Charged With Animal Cruelty After Killing Canada Goose

Comments Off on Mahopac Man Charged With Animal Cruelty After Killing Canada Goose

MAHOPAC — A Mahopac man who shot and killed a Canada goose near Lake Ossi faces an animal-cruelty charge, police said.

Putnam County SPCA officers were dispatched to the Lake Ossi neighborhood Monday after a resident reported seeing a man shooting a Canada goose and leaving its body near the shore, police said.

SPCA officers responded with state Department of Environmental Conservation police and spoke with the man, who was seen walking away from the lake.

They determined that Gregory Stefkovic, 44, of Mahopac had shot and killed the goose with a .177 caliber air rifle. Stefkovic explained that he shot the goose because the birds left too much feces by the lake, making it unsafe for children to play there.

SPCA police charged him with animal cruelty, a misdemeanor, while DEC police issued several summons for hunting violations, police said.

Stefkovic is due in Carmel Town Court on June 11.
