“People who can do this sort of thing to an animal, are clearly born without the part of the brain that makes the majority of us appalled at such horrific sites. I do hope they found whoever did this, fast. If you think you know who the dog belongs to, please contact the information below the picture, thank you!”

Metter Animal Shelter is looking for tips of the person or persons responsible for wrapping duct tape around this dog’s head.

The dog was found on the Stillmore Hwy. Monday morning. Metter Fire and Rescue assisted with removing the chain and duct tape.

A group of animal activists staged a protest today in Beijing in a bid to stop a Chinese dog-eating festival set to occur later this month.

This must stop: A group of around 30 animal activists staged a protest today in Beijing in a bid to stop the Yulin dog meat festival

The demonstration, initiated by three animal protection groups, submitted a petition allegedly signed by over 11 million people, calling on the Chinese authorities to end the Yulin dog meat festival.

The annual festival, which takes place in south China’s Guangxi Province, sees tens of thousands of animals beaten to death, cooked and sold on the market to celebrate summer solstice.

Around 30 activists carried out the protest outside of the Yulin government office as the petition was presented to the authority by three animal charities: Humane Society International, VShine and Beijing Mothers Against Animal Cruelty.

Pictures from today’s event show animal campaigners, many of whom brought their own pet dogs, holding signs saying ‘Scumbag of China’ in English and ‘Shame on Yulin’ in Simplified Chinese.

Wendy Higgins, the Director of International Media at Humane Society International, said over 11 million signatures had been collected worldwide through the internet to demand the festival to stop.

The petition also included signatures gathered by four other international animal welfare organisations. They are RaiseURPaw in Canada as well as the Duo Duo Project, Care2 and Avaaz from the United States.

The petition has been accepted by officials from the Yulin government in Beijing, according to Ms Higgins.

Peter Li, the China Policy Expert at Humane Society International, attended the protest in Beijing today.

Mr Li told MailOnline:

‘There was a huge presence of police, but our hand-in went very peacefully. It was a great feeling to join with our Chinese partner group activists in Beijing today, there was a tremendous sense of determination to get our voices heard to the global media, and to let the world know that many people across China want the brutal Yulin dog meat festival shut down.

He added: ‘We gave a show of strength and defiance against the dog thieves and the blatant animal cruelty, to say loudly – you will not steal our best friends! 

‘I hope that the authorities listen, they really should do as the strength of public upset about Yulin and the trade here in China is really growing.

‘Next stop for me is Yulin, where I have been a number of times before, for the grim task of visiting the slaughterhouses before the festival starts.’

Xu Yufeng, founder of Beijing Mothers Against Animal Cruelty who were also present at the protest, said: ‘Yulin is a total embarrassment to China. 

‘Its failure to stop mass dog slaughter and mass dog consumption shows that the local authorities are not doing their job to protect the people, especially young children.

‘We urge the Yulin authorities to stand on the right side of history and to end the “festival” in the interests of public security, food safety, social morality and China’s reputation.’ 

Another member of the protesters, Pan Danyang from China-based small animal protection group VShine, said:

‘This is the third year of our participation in the nation-wide campaign against the Yulin dog meat festival. ‘Since we have over the last few years helped accommodate dogs rescued from the dog meat trade, we know Yulin’s dog meat market relies on dogs from suspicious sources. ‘I hope that Yulin authorities will take actions to stop the dog trucks from going into their city so that the mass slaughter on the summer solstice day won’t happen.’

Canada needs to change it’s outdated laws regards bestiality

Comments Off on Canada needs to change it’s outdated laws regards bestiality

“This is sickening, having any sort of sexual engagement with an animal should be a crime…why the hell would any normal person think it’s ok??? Animals cannot speak for themselves, so we have to…it’s rape with or without penetration!!”

 By: 

Large Canadian Flag, on Interior, Home Wall

A ruling by the Canadian Supreme Court said an alleged offence can only be classed as bestiality if there is penetration!

It came from a case involving a man who smeared peanut butter on his stepdaughters’ genitals and had the family dog lick it off, while filming the act.

The man, identified only as DLW, was convicted of 13 counts of sexually assaulting his stepdaughters, and jailed for 16 years.

The counts included one of bestiality – but he has now been acquitted of the bestiality charge. 

The court said: ‘The term ‘bestiality’ has a well-established legal meaning and refers to sexual intercourse between a human and an animal.

‘Penetration has always been understood to be an essential element of bestiality.’

A 7-1 majority ruled that bestiality required penetration.

DLW, who also failed in attempts to make the dog perform intercourse on the stepdaughter, according to court documents, brought the bestiality conviction to the court on appeal.

Justice Rosalie Abella was the only judge to vote against the proposal.

She wrote: ‘Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs.’

Camille Labchuk, the executive director of charity Animal Justice, toldMetro.co.uk: ‘The Supreme Court’s decision is a wake up call that laws protecting animals are severely out of date.

Disturbing Content: Ruling by Supreme Court and Response from the Justice Minister

Comments Off on Disturbing Content: Ruling by Supreme Court and Response from the Justice Minister

“Any form of bestiality should be made illegal. An animal cannot converse, thereby cannot give it’s consent in anyway whats so ever!! So it’s clear to me that is the same as rape, no verbal communication can be given! It’s time the law was changed & these sicko’s brought to justice for such actions!”

WARNING: Contents may disturb some readers (it should actually disturb all readers)

I have gotten used to being disappointed by government but today’s shocking decision by the Supreme Court legalizing some types of bestiality leaves me speechless

The Supreme Court upheld the acquittal of a BC man on charges of bestiality, stemming from sexual abuse involving one of his daughters and the family dog. The reason for the acquittal was because the court deemed bestiality to have “a well-established legal meaning and refers to sexual intercourse between a human and an animal.” In other words, it only applies in the case of penetration and not to any other type of non-penetrative sexual activity.

“Please let’s not forget the daughter, she will have to live with this for life!”

In the 6-1 decision, the sole voice of reason was Justice Rosalie Abella who wrote:

“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs.”  Unfortunately her colleagues didn’t agree. Now it falls to Parliament to change the law to include both types of sexual activity.

This loophole was exposed last year when the case was sent to the Supreme Court. It is mystifying why Parliament wouldn’t have dealt with it immediately. Instead it appears to be slowed down as part of an omnibus bill that was introduced into the Parliament back in February. What’s going on? My producer wrote to the Justice Department to find out.

Below are the screen shots of the email correspondence…

I’m a Producer for Afternoons with Danielle Smith on News Talk 770 Radio Calgary. I am wanting to know if we could get a statement on this latest ruling from the Supreme Court on Bestiality and if there will be any movement from the Justice Minister on rectifying this issue. Here’s a link to the story.

Are you kidding me?

Fixing this section of the act requires a revision to the Criminal Code to enshrine a broader definition for bestiality. It only takes one sentence to clarify the law. The Supreme Court ruling so offends community values I have no doubt it would pass through both the House of Commons and the Senate in five seconds. It doesn’t “deserve careful study”. It doesn’t need “broad consultations with Canadians.” It just needs Parliament to do its job. Just get it done.

If you agree I suggest you contact Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould to let her know exactly how you feel.

Thai Monk Caught Feeing Temple With Tiger Skins

Wildlife authorities in Thailand have found adult tiger skins and fangs during a raid on the “tiger temple” tourist attraction and intercepted a monk who was trying to leave in a car that was carrying skins. Separately, officials said they would press charges against the Buddhist temple after 40 tiger cubs were found in a freezer on Wednesday.

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) moved in this week to relocate 137 tigers to government-run sanctuaries after repeated allegations of animal trafficking. The temple claims the tigers will be worse off.

“Today we found tigers skins and amulets in a car which was trying to leave a temple,” said Adisorn Noochdumrong, the deputy director of the DNP. He said a search of several monks’ quarters yielded further body parts, bringing Thursday’s haul to two full-body tiger skins, about 10 fangs and dozens of pieces of tiger fur.

Volunteers, staff and monks at Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua temple complex have long denied trafficking allegations. But international animal rights groups including WWF and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals applauded the raid. Police Col Bandith Meungsukhum told AFP the dead cubs would have been one or two days old. He said their DNA would be tested to see if they were related to tigers at the temple.

The temple claims it decided in 2010 to stop cremating the cubs and preserve them to “keep as proof against the allegations of selling cubs”.

Thailand is a central route for the illegal wildlife trade through south-east Asia, including for ivory, rhino horn and live animals. Tiger parts, including bones and penises, are used in traditional Chinese medicine.

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species banned the trade in tiger parts and products in 2007. The raid is the culmination of a battle that has been going on for years between the government and the temple. Thailand has an estimated 1,200-1,300 captive tigers.
