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.’

Police: Man dragged dogs with car, rope tied around their necks

Comments Off on Police: Man dragged dogs with car, rope tied around their necks

“Sorry, don’t buy it, owner “William Wilkinson” said he put a rope around necks of dogs; but didn’t realise it would strangle them?? WTF…the word thick, stupid & irresponsible, come to hand! The guy shouldn’t be allowed to own such sentient beings, if he doesn’t realise rope, when pulled tight, around a neck; strangles!!!”

Updated: 3:52 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 | Posted: 1:23 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014

WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Pa. —

A 59-year-old man is accused of tying rope around the necks of two dogs and dragging them by the hitch of his car last month in Wayne Township.

According to police, officers were called to the area of Dewey Avenue on July 27 for the report of a man dragging dogs with a rope using his vehicle.

A responding officer reported that he found the two dogs badly injured with multiple gashes. The ropes were still around both dogs’ necks.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, the dogs’ owner, William Wilkinson, told police the dogs got out of his yard while he was at the doctors.

The affidavit said Wilkinson said he couldn’t find anyone to help him when he located the dogs, so he tied the rope around the dogs and traveled about 2 mph with them tied to the hitch.

At one point, according to affidavit, Wilkinson said he stopped to give one of the dogs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Police talked with a witness who said he saw the dogs being dragged so he raced in to help. The witness told police he noticed one of the dogs was not breathing so he got a knife from his truck to cut the rope.

According to the affidavit, the witness told police he couldn’t get his fingers under the rope because it was so tight. The witness said Wilkinson eventually resuscitated the dog.

The witness then called police, who came to the scene. The affidavit said Wilkinson told officers dragging the dogs was an accident, and he didn’t know the rope would strangle them.

The dogs were taken to a veterinarian and are currently in an unspecified safe location.

  • WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE & VIDEO BELOW
  • Michael the 18-month-old lion ‘got his head stuck between steel cables’
  • Zoo denies negligence saying animal must have been ‘playing around’
  • His body has disappeared and police have not been able to examine it
  • More than 40 animals died at zoo between July and September last year
  • Previous expose revealed dead giraffe had 20kgs of plastic in its stomach

Tiger’s digestive tract rotted after being fed meat laced with formaldehyde

The world’s cruellest zoo has claimed another victim after an African lion was found hanging in its cage, it emerged today.

Shocking: Michael the lion is found hanging in his cage after apparently getting his head stuck between steel cables at Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia which has been heavily criticised for its treatment of its animals

The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia, which has outraged MailOnline readers around the world after an expose on the treatment of its animals, is being investigated by police following the death of the 18-month-old lion called Michael.

But the lion’s body was removed before police were able to examine it and cannot now be found.

A senior officer declined to say whether it was believed the zoo was trying to hamper the investigation.

Michael was found strangled in his cage after his head became stuck between steel cables, the Jakarta Globe reported today.

The tragedy comes just 24 hours after it was learned that a wildebeest died in its enclosure from a stomach problem, although the zoo said that the wet weather was partly to blame.” well of course they are not going to say otherwise!!”

The death of Michael the lion is certain to cause further demands from animal lovers around the world for urgent action to be carried out at the zoo.“Yes indeed, please sign the petition below, thanks; on behalf of the animals “

Closing it down, however, is not an option because no other zoo has expressed an interest in taking the animals. “Really? I can’t believe that?”

Latest statistics, covering the months between July and September last year, reveal that 43 animals died at the zoo during that period. “43 animal deaths, surely that is enough grounds to take away all the remaining animals & find them homes were they can behave in & on their natural habitat”

Horrific: Chained by three legs, this juvenile male elephant was one of several animals which featured in a recent expose for MailOnline last month that has outraged readers around the world

Among those which have died there previously is a giraffe that was found to have 20 kilograms of plastic in its stomach and a Sumatran tiger found to have a rotten digestive tract after being regularly fed meat laced with formaldehyde.

In the wake of Michael the lion’s death, zoo spokesman Agus Supangkat denied that his death was caused by zookeepers’ negligence.

We are still investigating how the steel cables could entrap the African lion’s head,‘ he told the Globe.

‘Michael was relatively young. He was only one and a half years old. It could be that he was playing around and somehow his head got stuck.’

Mr Agus said each of the zoo’s lions – there are now only four left – spends its days in two different cages.

Each morning, the lions are taken to a display cage where visitors can view them. Then, in the afternoon they are moved to another cage where they sleep, said Mr Agus.

He explained that the zoo used steel cables to secure the cage so zookeepers did not have to manually open or close the cage door with their hands.

This, he said, was a safety precaution to prevent the keepers being injured.

Michael was sent to the zoo last March by the East Java Natural Resources Conservation Agency

Emaciated: This camel’s ribs were plain to see as it ate grass in its enclosure when reporter Richard Shears visited the zoo last month

Surabaya Police detectives chief Senior Commander Farman told the Globe that a team of officers had visited the zoo to gather evidence but the corpse was missing.

He said that if the lion’s body could be found ‘we are going to wait for the autopsy results, then we can further examine the case.’ “Well somebody knows where the body is, probably the one that killed it, or found it dead, so I suggest the police move up a gear & kick some Ass!”

Dwindling numbers: A zoo spokesman said each of the lions – there are now only four left – spends its days in two different cages, one for displaying to visitors, the other for sleeping

A MailOnline investigation into the zoo before Christmas found numerous cases of animals living in miserable conditions, including a young elephant that was chained by three legs, one of which was ulcerated because of its tight shackles.

Dozens of petitions were started pleading for the zoo to be closed and animal rights groups have added their voice to the demands.

But a management team, headed by the Surabaya Mayor, Mrs Tri Rismaharini, has resisted improvements saying they want to retain the original structures erected by Dutch colonialists in 1916.

“WTF…only a non caring animal lover would say such a thing; all zoos have to be updated to fulfil regulations etc. protecting the animal & the public. But the animals should also be allowed to exhibit normal  behaviour; to do so they better make a start & build cages that give the animal a sense of freedom, to allow natural behaviour. 

I believe all animals, whatever they do or where ever they are; are entitled to the 5 F’s

Five Freedoms

The welfare of an animal includes its physical and mental state and we consider that good animal welfare implies both fitness and a sense of well-being. Any animal kept by man, must at least, be protected from unnecessary suffering.

We believe that an animal’s welfare, whether on farm, in transit, at market or at a place of slaughter should be considered in terms of ‘five freedoms’. These freedoms define ideal states rather than standards for acceptable welfare. They form a logical and comprehensive framework for analysis of welfare within any system together with the steps and compromises necessary to safeguard and improve welfare within the proper constraints of an effective livestock industry.

1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst – by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.

2. Freedom from Discomfort – by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.

3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease – by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.

4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour – by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.

5. Freedom from Fear and Distress – by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

Now I bet not many facilities can attest to the above, but they should; a simple act to follow! Surely if an animal is going to be used by humans for entertainment or killed for its meat; it is entitled to a decent life, before its last breath!!!! Living in the countryside, I’m just glad I see animals in fields  & know that I can look them in the eye , & say sorry you’re going to be slaughtered; but I shall never eat you or your friends”

Raw: Horrifying footage of starved Sumatran Tiger in ‘World’s Cruellest Zoo’

Published on 27 Dec 2013 – CCTVNEWS24/7

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TO UNDERSTAND THE URGENCY IN HELPING THESE SUFFERING ANIMALS!

Horrifying footage of starved Sumatran tiger in ‘world’s cruellest zoo’ AP visited Indonesia’s Surayaba Zoo, where 50 animals have allegedly died in the last three months. One giraffe died with 20kg of plastic bags in its stomach.

World’s cruellest zoo: Shackled elephants, starving camels, 150 pelicans crammed into one cage – and a death toll that rises daily.

More than 50 animals have died in the last three months at Indonesia’s Surayaba Zoo, a former keeper has claimed
One giraffe died last year with 20kg of plastic bags in its stomach after they blew into its cage and weren’t cleared.

In another case, a Sumatran tiger’s digestive tract rotted away after it was routinely fed formaldehyde-laced meat
A Zoo spokesman defended the attraction, branded the worst in the world, but admitted: ‘We also have issues’

The young elephant has tugged at his shackled hind leg so often that the manacles have cut through the flesh, leaving it raw.

Not that freeing himself would help. A chain on his left front leg means he can move neither forwards, backwards nor sideways.

The elephant’s owner has tethered the youngster because he prefers to tend to his small shop in the grounds of the Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia.

Money comes first. And so, day after day, week after week, the elephant stands there, being released from his chains only at the end of each day.

Anyone finding the scene depressing, and who turns away to look for more happy animals in the zoo would eventually leave, as I did, utterly depressed.

Surabaya Zoo has been branded the worst in the world and when I walked through this animal torture ground I was left in no doubt its reputation was well-earned.

I live near Sydney harbour where it is a joy to watch pelicans gliding low across the waters of Blackwattle Bay. But at the Surabaya Zoo I could only shake my head in despair at the sight of more than 150 pelicans jammed into a cage, trying to share a small pool of water, so tightly packed that they could not even spread their wings, let alone fly.

‘How many pelicans does this zoo need?’ I asked a keeper. ‘They’re not endangered. There’s no need to keep this many penned in.’ He knew what I said, but I received only shrugs.

Each step took me through a macabre animal dungeon. While I saw dishes of chopped vegetables for the primates, the ribs of several large animals could be seen. One camel in particular appeared appallingly thin. A Capuchin monkey I came across appeared to almost plead to be released.

In another cage, a sad rhinoceros horn bill looks up at the blue sky, trying to take off from its perch, but there is no room to flap its wings.

Well over 50 animals have died here in the past three months, says Tony Sumampau, a former member of the zoo’s temporary management team, who had finally left in despair. ‘The keepers have stalls that they run selling food and drinks and it’s more important for them to make money than it is to be taking care of their animals.’

The zoo, was opened in 1916 during Dutch colonial rule, and next to nothing has been done to improve it. Instead, more and more animals have been packed in.
A report by an independent team set up by Indonesia’s forestry ministry called for the animals be moved to other zoos but nothing has been done. Other zoos refuse to take the animals because of their condition and the fear that many of them carrying diseases.

The state of the zoo’s animals came to world-wide attention following the death of a giraffe in 2012 that was found with no less than 20 kilograms of plastic bags in its stomach. They had blown into its enclosure and the keepers had not bothered to pick them up.

The giraffe’s death would possibly have faded from the world’s conscience had it not been for the discovery of a dead female orang-utan, Nanik, in its enclosure a few weeks ago. Orang-utans, an endangered species, live up to the age of 60 in captivity, but Nanik was just 12 years old when she died, a large tumour being found in her intestines.

Sitting alone is another orang-utan. I cannot believe what I see — she is chewing on the yellow top of a marker pen someone has thrown at her. She pushes it forward between her lips, then sucks it back into her mouth. I fear she will soon swallow it. Beside her, rats scurry in and out of holes around her!

I stare at a Sumatran tiger — or rather just its face — as it peers out from behind the bars of its stone living quarters. One of its brothers, I was told, had been seriously ill with its digestive tract rotted away due to the formaldehyde-laced meat it had been fed. An African lion is reported to have died in pain, adding to the zoo’s shameful catalogue of deaths from starvation, mistreatment and other unnatural causes.

Just A Few Petitions to stop this abuse:-

“These important signatures are to support shutting this zoo or getting some sort of management in that can raise the welfare of the animals: & getting rid of those that just don’t give a shit about the animals, just their pay packet!!”

Santa Fe Police Discover Gruesome Case Of Animal Cruelty During Drug Bust

Comments Off on Santa Fe Police Discover Gruesome Case Of Animal Cruelty During Drug Bust

“Sick POS…need to pay with jail time, for the animals they tortured & need to be removed from decent society; so they can’t harm or torture any more animals.”

SANTA FE, Texas – Santa Fe police say a drug bust led to the discovery of some horrific animal cruelty.

 38-year-old Veronica Lynn Springer

According to the Santa Fe Police Department, 39-year-old Brian Anthony Cheek and his wife, 38-year-old Veronica Lynn Springer, were arrested Friday night on narcotics charges after officers found almost 9 grams of crystal methamphetamines, a scale and packaging materials for sales.

However, while executing the warrant, detectives made a gruesome discovery, police said. Twenty cats ranging from kittens to full grown cats were discovered dead.

 39-year-old Brian Anthony Cheek

Police said the cats all appeared to have been tortured and killed. Evidence of strangulation, blunt force trauma, disemboweling and burning was found.

One of the dead cats was discovered in a box in the bed of Cheek’s truck, police said.

Remains of several of the cats were picked up by the Galveston County Sheriff’s Animal Cruelty investigators and will be examined by necropsy at which time additional felony charges are expected.

Cheek, already on felony probation, is charged with manufacture/delivery of controlled substances, a first-degree felony, police said. He is being held on a $300,000.00 bond.

Police said Springer is charged with possession of controlled substances, and she is being held on $20,000.00 bond.

VIDEO Movie Trailers; CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak

Comments Off on VIDEO Movie Trailers; CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak

“BE THE CHANGE…Please support this movie; donate what you can! Read the information, digest it, then share it will everyone you know! Nobody needs the skin of an animal except the animal, their fur is to protect them from the elements; not us!!! Please do whatever you can to stop this inhumane trade; read the MISSION statement below, read the links & sign petitions, thanks!”

Every year, more than 50 MILLION fur-bearing animals, including man’s best friend and feline companion, are brutally murdered without mercy in the name of greed, vanity and ignorance.  The fur trade is criminal and an atrocity at the lowest level of inhumanity.  To address the issue of animal cruelty in our society is to address the complexity of the human condition and our collective consciousness, which perceives animals as commodities, rather than loving, sentient beings.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:  This compelling film reflects the need of a changing society and its revolution for evolution – not a battle with armor but a quest for spiritual epiphany and the redemption of our planet.

THE CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The voices that can’t speak 

Published on 2 Dec 2013

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

This film speaks the voice of truth for those who cannot speak for themselves.  It does not rely on gruesome images as a means to convey the message, but it does reveal the reality.   

This precedent-setting film will unveil the spiritual truth behind the veil of a culture that perpetuates the holocaust of animals for personal gain.  Its pure intent is to probe into the deeper level of the psyche, so that the nemesis can be healed.

If we cannot witness inhumanity, we cannot empower humanity, and we fail as a “human” species.  If we are not willing to hear their cries or experience their terror, then we are not willing to bear witness to the truth, which is the only path to redemption and transformation.

This film is one that needs to be made, for it would be a tragedy of epic proportions to passively consent to the silence of mass murder for profit and self-aggrandizement.  

I have asked myself the question: If not me, then who?  Someone needs to make this film, to beckon the soul of humanity to awaken.  That’s us, you and me.  If not us, then who?  If not now, when?

Without our voice, the animals have no voice. 

Thank you for your support of this critical film, on behalf of the animals and humanity on our planet.

Animal rights is the greatest social justice issue of our time

MISSION

“A lie goes half way around the world before truth puts on its boots.” – Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

What is the state of our world’s conscience when we can tolerate the needless and horrific act of a sentient being skinned alive for its fur and empower the industry that profits from such atrocity?

Social responsibility, ecological preservation and evolution of consciousness are the challenges of this decade.  It is evident that we have not yet fully evolved as a society when the unconscionable practices and cruelty of the fur trade, and the inhumane suffering of all afflicted animals, is still a reality in the 21st century.  The killing of defenceless animals is an atrocity and reprehensible violation of the innocent, and should no longer be tolerated in a civilized and evolved society.

What is the price an innocent animal must pay for the sake of commerce, in the guise of fulfilling society’s needs?  Does our desire for material adornment outweigh human compassion and empathy?

How can we witness the massacre of innocent baby seals taken from their mother while nursing in Canadian waters and condone such an egregious act by continuing to invest in Canadian products, tourism and Canada’s stock market?

What is the state of society’s consciousness when man’s “best friend” and “feline companion” are mutilated and heinously killed for the skin on their bodies?  Where are the laws to protect them?  And why do we continue to invest in China and export their products to North America?

The impetus that drives the fur trade is the fashion industry, and film is the most powerful medium in which to convey the truth.

This precedent-setting film will leave an indelible imprint on the soul of humanity, intuitively evolving the collective consciousness toward sustainable change by bridging the link to cruelty through the soul perspective, with its center on the fur trade as a paradigm of a larger nemesis permeating our world.

AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY ON OUR PLANET 

This critical film is a calling for transformational social evolution.

The impact of the film’s message will intuitively evolve the collective consciousness toward fundamental and sustainable change and iinstilthe principles of compassion, empathy, love and humanity on our planet, and in turn, save the lives of countless animals around the globe. The power of respect will change our world.

We will unite in a new world paradigm that stands in the power of good that will forever overcome the forces of evil and harm to all sentient beings and mother earth.

The way our animals are treated is the moral and spiritual compass of our humanity.

The World Will Change Through You.  No Other Means Can Save It.  

IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO?  IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

UPDATE: Justice, The Dog Set On Fire, Receives No Justice

Comments Off on UPDATE: Justice, The Dog Set On Fire, Receives No Justice

Update August 21, 2013 10:35 a.m:Since the District Attorney‘s office is considering an appeal, the petition asking for the maximum sentence (link is below) has been reopened for signatures.

In April, 2012, an 18-year-old man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.Darius Ewing poured lighter fluid on a four-month-old puppy, then flicked a lit cigarette at him. The police report stated that a group of people watched and laughed as Ewing threw his lit cigarette at the dog.

Darius Ewing

The Labrador puppy suffered from third degree burns on more than 70 percent of his body. His poor little body could not handle it, and ten days after being set on fire, the puppy died.

The puppy was named “Justice” by his rescuers, DFW Rescue Me, since that is what they hoped he would get.

But that does not seem to be the case.

The man who lit Justice on fire, Darius Ewing, pleaded guilty to one count of felony animal cruelty. Ewing entered a plea on Tuesday, agreeing to a five-year sentence. The judge on the case, Larry Mitchell, reduced his sentence to two years. WFFA.com reports that the judge “lowered it to two years, saying prosecutors failed to prove that a ‘deadly weapon’ was used.”

Three others also pleaded guilty to one count each of felony animal cruelty. Darius Carey, 25, was sentenced to two years in jail. Richard Valentine, 25, and Adrian Ayers, 21, each received 15 months in jail.

Ayers, Carey, Ewing

In Texas, State Jail Felonies are punishable with a fine of up to $10,000 and/or a jail sentence of up to 10 years.

Jonnie England of the Texas Humane Alliance says all who were present for sentencing in the courtroom were shocked. “There was just no justice for Justice here today,” England said.

Prosecutors are considering an appeal for Ewing’s case.

Animal advocate group Hand4Paws wrote a petition asking that Darius Ewing receive the maximum sentence. The petition received over 37,000 signatures. The petition was sent to the judge on the case, Larry Mitchell.

V.GRAHIC: Shocking picnic under Sredneuralsky: Company adults hung a dog on a tree, and then let it on the barbecue

Comments Off on V.GRAHIC: Shocking picnic under Sredneuralsky: Company adults hung a dog on a tree, and then let it on the barbecue

“Please note the following has been translated from Russian; hence the disjointed sentences.” 

“A poor little dog, hung up by a tree to strangle to death, then cut up, thrown on a BBQ & eaten at picnic!!  We see many acts of violence on the internet etc. but this is so disturbing & brutal that the dogs owners must be made to pay; we must join together & keep petitions going until they are brought to justice! How do we know this isn’t a regular occasion for these sick bastards? How many more dogs will end up on their picnic table; unless they are stopped & punished? The website link below contains the video (which does not play automatically) & has still pictures taken from the video. I have included 1 image, taken before the horrific torture took place! Even though I have not seen the video, I would suggest viewer discretion be strongly advised; if the pictures are anything to go by!!. Please sign the petition below to get these sadistic MF’s locked up for life!! If they can do this to a dog, what else are they capable of??

“The following sentence is below the video on the website link; which even I refuse to view!!”

The brutality of the videotaped the wife of one of flayers [shocking video discussion]

We journalists “Komsomolskaya Pravda“, had not shaken because of the video from the Internet.But it is – just something inhuman. People – not homeless, not marginal – ordinary people, taxi drivers, housewives – kill a small dog. During the picnic hang it on the tree, long tormented until she hanged himself on a leash, and then cut up the carcass and roasted dog meat on the grill. It seems to be somewhere very far away, in a wild country, on another planet … But no, next. Heroes Video – residents Sredneuralsk – the satellite city of Yekaterinburg. Incidentally, they continue to work. And threaten neighbors, will give interviews to journalists – vzdernem like that dog on the tree!

 “Tenacious. Wind the SC-HER MORE! “

All the brutality captured on video, which shocked the internet. Publish it in full (and it lasts about ten minutes), we can not. It is disgusting. Scary. Only a small piece posted on our site kp.ru – to understand what bad people live with us …

Knacker choose the branch on which a few minutes later strung unfortunate dog screenshot from the video provided by TAU

Early on in the frame appear several men. They are having fun in the woods, where, apparently, got out on a picnic. In the hands of one of them – the leash, which hold Makhonko mongrel mutt. Wagging his tail, dog sitting at the feet of men. The other men at this time look around. Apparently, look after the birch branch on which a few minutes later hanged the unfortunate animal.

Finally, the choice is made. A man in a white jumper and jeans takes the leash and leads the dog for you. Dog happily running through the forest. Trusting the animal is fed to one of the trees, the slack habits through females and up. County is filled with eerie sounds: an unhappy dog ​​barks at first, then a heart-rending vereschit. Soon screeching turns into wheezing. This lasts for about five minutes, but the dog is still alive:

– Die hard! – Says one of the flayers. – Wind the-ka it more.

Zhivotinka continues to squirm in the noose. The “operator”, which takes punishment on video seems to wake up, “sorry.” It turned out that all this time the dog suffering fixed the woman on the cell phone …!

– Alexander! – Hear behind the scenes of her drunken voice. – Knife Carry! Bring a knife, the f … your mother!

The screen shows a woman’s face – it removes itself. As it turned out, the wife of one of the executioners. When the dog verse, the company sadists removed his skin. And then marinate and fry of dog meat kebabs.

After an eerie video somehow got into the network, it was found that a married couple is well known in flayers Sredneuralsk.

– This is Oleg and Hope – said one of the friends of sadists, who wished to remain anonymous. – They are fifty, they live together. They like to drink. Oleg works in a taxi. When their neighbors learned about the history of dogs with barbecue, Oleg threatened that also vzdernet anyone who would talk about it.

 DOG MEAT HELPS IN TUBERCULOSIS …”

We found the phone Oleg Kuleshov – the very man who hangs a dog on a video, and then it was cut up. But picked up his wife, Hope, explaining that her husband forgot to phone home. When we were told what we ring, the woman did not blanch spouse. She says that was not present in this case, but neighbors identified the woman in her heroine movie.

– I was shocked by all of this – said Nadia told “KP“. – We own dog house, simple pooch. I took it from the neighbors after the previous couple of dogs have died. And Oleg loves his dog. He brought her own home …

– How do you then explain his actions so?

– Asked the owner of that dog to remove it. In this way they have decided to get rid of it. And Oleg knows how to butcher cattle, after all grew up in the village.

– Why then is this dog?

– Well they say that dog meat helps with tuberculosis, which is at a friend Oleg. Dog meat is useful. Net. Especially the dog home. Mistress I know her name is Olga. Need to talk to her, looking for her. What he’s done is done. I have not seen this movie. I myself would like to see how and what happened there.

– So you were not there?

– No.

Terrible shot already seen the police. Videos shocked even the enforcers.

– It is very hard to watch – says Nina Pelevin, spokeswoman of the MOI for the Sverdlovsk region.- The video has all the signs of sadism. It is classified under “harsh treatment of animals group of persons by prior agreement.”

The maximum penalty for this article – two years in prison. But the majority of Internet users who have looked torment the dog, they say that it is necessary to punish the flayers much more serious. That’s just the police clarify that this article does not provide for the detention. That is, until a court decision knacker will be free. Prison term for them is possible only as a last resort.So monsters can get off with a fine.

Last night the head of the police number 28 Sredneuralsk Valentin Katz said “KP” that the identity of all flayers installed:

– Now we are interviewing them, and then make a decision to institute criminal proceedings. To get an objective picture of the incident, we need to interview all witnesses, witnesses of crime.

– Did you encounter such crimes during your work?

– Never. And I do not remember that criminal proceedings were instituted for this article.

– What is the probability that these monsters go to jail?

– A little. The court will consider all the circumstances. Since they have not tried, most likely, a real sentence will be.

COMMENT Zoozaschitniki …

– I see such cruelty almost every day and hanging animals, and with his eyes gouged, with burnt and torn off the backs of legs … – says Marina Sharifullina, Yekaterinburg volunteer charity for homeless animals. – These people and people-to name not dare! It’s monsters, not people, the Nazis, who mock the living beings. And people something normal in appearance: a certain place of residence, with money, with the machine. We have repeatedly appealed to the prosecutor’s office on the protection of animals, but, unfortunately, not a single criminal case was not entered.The authorities are not actively respond to such incidents. Therefore, while at the level of legislation is not resolved this issue, we are powerless.

And psychiatry …

– There are two questions. First – who are these people by nationality. There are countries where the dogs taken to start up a barbecue. Even more, in Moscow caught dogs and in certain restaurants serve the dish – says forensic psychiatrist Mikhail Vinogradov. – Secondly, it’s not that these people are sick or not. The problem of cruelty, a change in moral values: the dog was taken to the woods and killed, sanded, eaten, but it is not related to any mental disorder. The fact that they have removed all of the video, I would call a “disease of the century”, but not in terms of mental health problems. For example, someone hit by a car: a crowd gathers, take out all the mobiles, shoot it on video and spread on the Internet. On the street torn, dying people, and they are being filmed! And it’s not a problem psychic and social.
