“We have to be the voice of the voiceless & ensure laws put in place to protect them; are in use!”

“YOU The PUBLIC have a voice, if you eat meat, don’t you want it to come from healthy farms, where the animals are cared for as they should be.? There are no excuses as you can see in the second video…but farmers cut corners to produce meat cheaply…would you honestly want to eat the meat that came from ill, diseased or filthy animals fed with slop??”

“Every time you open the door to one of these farms, you tell yourself: ‘it will be better than the last. They can’t all be ignoring the law, they can’t all be inflicting such misery.’ But then you see the pigs, and realise the scale of the suffering. It breaks your heart.”

Compassion’s Head of Investigations.

We have created a short video to summarise the findings of our investigation. Please help us to protect the pigs by watching it and sharing it as widely as possible.

The biggest scandal in modern pig farming?

Published on 23 Oct 2013

Much of the EU pig industry is completely ignoring basic welfare laws — leading to the suffering of millions of pigs. Compassion in World Farming has pulled together evidence from across Europejoin us in standing up for pig welfare by signing the petitionhttp://www.ciwf.org/EUpigvideo

Last year Compassion visited 45 pig farms across the EU. We went south to Italy and Spain; south-east to Cyprus; west to Ireland; and east to Poland and the Czech Republic. On every single farm we found the laws put in place to protect pig welfare were being flouted – the suffering was hard to witness.

And it doesn’t stop there.

We believe aspects of the Pigs Directive are being blatantly ignored all across the EU, inflicting illegal cruelty on millions of intelligent and sensitive animals. There are over 140 million pigs in the EU at any one time. Sometimes the scale of the challenge we are facing seems overwhelming.

But we have good news. The response to our petition has been amazing. It is the fastest growing petition in Compassion’s history; please help us keep up the momentum.

Take action

An alternative to the Californian mega dairy.

Humane, sustainable dairy farming can and does exist in California! In this film, Philip visits Strauss dairy whose organic dairy herd graze on pasture and are treated as much more than just units of production.

Air Cruelty: Inside the Labs of Two of the Largest U.S. Primate Importers

Published on 27 Sep 2012

Shocking undercover and whistleblower footage from inside the laboratories of Covance and Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), two of the largest importers of primates into the United States for use in cruel experiments.

Every year, tens of thousands of nonhuman primates are transported from countries such as China, Mauritius, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia to the U.S. to be imprisoned in laboratories and tormented in experiments. Some are bred in captivity on cramped, squalid monkey factory farms, while others are stolen from their families in the wild.

The traumatized monkeys are crammed into small wooden crates and transported in the backs of trucks and the dark and terrifying cargo holds of planes, often on passenger flights just below unsuspecting customers. 

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, nearly 23,000 nonhuman primates were brought into the U.S. in 2010—nearly all of them destined for laboratories. Nearly 3,000 monkeys were imported by animal testing conglomerate Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), where recent photos and video footage leaked by a whistleblower show sick, distraught monkeys suffering horribly from tests in which they were injected with experimental chemicals.

Almost every major airline in the world—including Delta Air LinesAmerican AirlinesUnited Airlines, US Airways, Air ChinaChina Southern Airlines,China Eastern AirlinesTAM AirlinesEl Al Airlines, and dozens of others—refuses to take any part in this violent industry and prohibits the transportation of primates to laboratories.

However, an increasingly small group of airlines—including Air France, Philippine Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines—continues to profit from animals’ misery by transporting monkeys destined for U.S. laboratories.

Please be a voice for the monkeys who are suffering in the primate trade. Take a minute of your time now to urge airlines that still transport monkeys to U.S. laboratories to join their peers and adopt a formal policy against the transportation of nonhuman primates for use in experiments.

URGENT! Protect California Mountain Lions! Sign To Help Pass SB 132! / Mountain Lion Foundation

Comments Off on URGENT! Protect California Mountain Lions! Sign To Help Pass SB 132! / Mountain Lion Foundation

California Senate Bill 132, introduced by Senator Jerry Hill, is designed to do three main things:

  • Clarify the issue of “imminent threat” so that less-than-lethal procedures may be used to ensure the public’s health or safety.
  • Authorize the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to partner with qualified individuals, education institutions, governmental agencies, or non-governmental organizations to assist in implementing non-lethal procedures.
  • Require an annual report to the legislature on all public safety incidents involving mountain lions.

Other states are already utilizing these non-lethal procedures. SB 132 will bring California up to date.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has created new guidelines for handling mountain lion public safety incidents. They have already incorporated many of these non-lethal measures, but without legal authorization (SB 132), they will not be able to implement them.

You can help rectify this situation by signing MLF’s petition to show your support for Senate Bill 132

“This petition needs urgent action as this bill (SB 132) will help protect California Mountain Lions from unwarranted killing.”

“As you may have heard in the last several months, California Mountain Lions have been shot by officials without just cause. Several months ago two California Mountain Lion cubs in a backyard were shot despite there being no imminent threat whatsoever”

“The cubs, starving and separated from their mother, were seeking shade from the heat and posed no threat to anyone.”

“In another highly publicized case, a terrified Mountain Lion was shot in a Santa Monica parking lot rather than being tranquillized and relocated, which raised outrage amongst California citizens. Please sign the petition and share with all. We need to preserve and protect this precious national treasure. “

Please Sign the following petition:-http://www.mountainlion.org/actionalerts/030413CAsb132/030413CAsb132alert.asp?utm_source=Action%20Alert%203/6/2013
