Canada needs to change it’s outdated laws regards bestiality

Comments Off on Canada needs to change it’s outdated laws regards bestiality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Justice, toldMetro.co.uk: ‘The Supreme Court’s decision is a wake up call that laws protecting animals are severely out of date.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.

producer-email

ministers-response

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.

God help any animals they have at home, if they think it’s funny to watch these gentle innocent little chicks be ground up alive! As sentient beings, chicks are more than capable of feeling pain & distress etc. this practice needs to end: PERIOD. So please sign the petition.

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.”

Sara Shields, PhD

“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.”

Mary Richardson, DVM

WHAT THE INVESTIGATION EXPOSED:

  • Chicks flung by their fragile wings and slammed into metal dividers
  • Live chicks sent through a scalding washing machine, burned, and drowned
  • Chicks overloaded and roughly crammed into macerators to be ground up alive

WATCH: Baby Chicks Ground Up Alive at Maple Leaf Hatchery

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?

Cruelty Tipster Program In T.O. Canada

Comments Off on Cruelty Tipster Program In T.O. Canada

Organization grows to the big smoke. Winnipeg‘s Paw Tipsters has gone national.

The non-profit organization, which started in July 2012 to combat animal abuse in partnership with Winnipeg Crime Stoppers, announced today its expansion to Toronto.

Paw Tipsters operates with the same anonymity as Crime Stoppers, where people call the hotline to report information of animal abuse. Tips are investigated and if evidence of abuse is uncovered, there is a cash reward.

“Since we started it, I always thought it would be something that would be good to have right across Canada because animal cruelty doesn’t just take place here,” said Winnipeg Paw Tipsters president Yvonne Russell. “I thought Toronto would be a great starting point and we already have a working relationship here with Crime Stoppers so it was easy for Toronto Crime Stoppers to jump on board.”

Russell is in Toronto today for the official announcement.

“I’m excited to see us grown in this way, Toronto is a huge city. I’m just really proud of what Paw Tipsters is doing

Paw Tipsters’ Yvonne Russell at home with her pooches Mike (left) and Garry.

and what we are becoming. Hopefully it’s going to spread like wildfire out there and people are going to be phoning in animal-cruelty tips in Toronto as well.”

She said further expansion is planned as Paw Tipsters prepares to approach another large city.

To report incidents of animal cruelty, people are asked to call the Crime Stoppers line at 204-786-TIPS (8477) or toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.

Paw Tipsters also forwards any information it receives directly to Crime Stoppers, which links with local law enforcement organizations to handle the investigation and, if necessary, the Winnipeg Humane Society or provincial veterinarian office. It will work the same way in Toronto.

Russell said each tip is investigated and serious tips can pay $2,000 to the tipster.

“We will pay more for the larger-scale tips,” she said. “We would like to get to the bottom of puppy mills and dog-fighting so tips like that would pay in the neighborhood of $2,000.”

“We’re starting to make a bigger difference, the more people know about us,” Russell said. “I always thought that if we saved even one animal, it was worth it to me. The big thing is just saving them from the situation that they are in. Calls come in all the time and several animals have been removed from very bad situations due to the tips through Paw Tipsters so to me, it’s already so worthwhile.”

Paw Tipsters is a registered charity that relies on donations to pay for tips so anyone wanting to help is asked to email pawtipsters@hotmail.ca.

Call Winnipeg Crime Stoppers at 786-TIPS (8477) or toll-free at 1-800-222-8477. You can also submit a tip online at www.winnipegcrimestoppers.org. Callers never have to reveal their identity. If your tip is helpful, you could receive up to $2,000.

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.

Polar Bears Are Left Out In The Cold By CITIES – Born Free : Videos & Petitions To Sign Please

Comments Off on Polar Bears Are Left Out In The Cold By CITIES – Born Free : Videos & Petitions To Sign Please

“This news arrived in my inbox. Just devastating news from the CITES convention for polar bears…who it seems are going to be left out in the cold!!! Watch the video then read the briefing below!!

Polar bears left out in the cold by CITES

Published on 7 Mar 2013 – Born Free

Will Travers, Born Free CEO, is saddened by today’s vote at the Bangkok meeting of CITES, which soundly rejected a proposal to increase protection from commercial trade for the polar bear, imperiled by the impacts of climate change.

This morning, the Conference of Parties to CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) currently taking place in Bangkok, discussed a proposal by the United States asking for higher protection of the iconic polar bear (see video above).

This species, completely dependent on sea ice for survival, has seen its number s fall to around 20,000-25,000 in recent years. This has in part been caused by a dramatic decrease in the extent of both winter and summer sea ice (showing a reduction of up to 20%) over the past 30 years, exacerbated by hunting for domestic and international trade amongst other factors.

Found in just five countries in the circumpolar region (Canada, Denmark (Greenland), Norway, Russian Federation, and the United States), this species has caught the attention of the international community in recent years as the story of their decline has become common knowledge.

So, what will CITES Parties do to increase its protection and offer a life line to the world’s largest and best known bear species…WELL NOTHING!!!!

The precautionary principle, on which this proposal was largely based states that where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation’.

So what this means is that if we are not sure of the effects an action is having, better to stop and reassess rather than proceed, possibly past the point of no return.

Today however, the Parties to CITES unfortunately threw precaution to the wind and voted not to increase global protection through greater trade restrictions despite the numerous current and ever looming threats to this species. It remains to be seen how this will contribute to the polar bear’s demise

ENDANGERED POLAR BEAR

Uploaded on 2 Oct 2010

Polar bears are inquisitive, flexible and opportunistic, adept at exploiting their Arctic habitat.  Global warming is considered to be polar bears’ greatest threat and causes ice to melt earlier and freeze later. 

Bears have less time to hunt, have a longer summer fast and wait longer to resume hunting, causing loss of condition and potential conflict situations when hungry bears come in contact with peopleMeanwhile in captivity, intelligent and adaptable polar bears can suffer particularly badly in zoos, circuses and marine parks.

Polar bears are dying. As global warming accelerates, the sea ice they depend on for survival is literally melting away. Bears are starving and drowning as they have to swim farther and farther to reach solid ice. Some are even turning to cannibalism in a desperate search for food. Those trapped on land hundreds of miles from the nearest ice often wander near villages in search of food and are shot.

As if that weren’t enough, oil and gas drilling is destroying and polluting their fast-dwindling Arctic habitat.

A third of all polar bears — including all bears in Alaska — will be extinct by 2050 if current trends continue. The rest of the species will be gone by the end of the century.

But it’s not too late to save the polar bear if we join together and take immediate action. The science is clear.  We know what needs to be done — we just need to build the political support to do it.

Please sign the petition below to encourage President Barack Obama to rein in global warming and save the polar bear now.

Global Ban On Polar Bear Trade Turned Down

Published on 7 Mar 2013

An international conference of 178 member nations of an environmental group opts to allow trading of polar bear parts to continue.An international ban on trade in polar bears has been banned because of fears it would distract from the bigger threat of global warming.
The proposal put to representatives of the 178 member nations of the Convention on International Trade In Endangered Species (Cites) had divided conservationists.
They all agreed that the main risk to the world’s largest carnivorous land animal came from habitat loss but differed over whether international trade also put the bears at risk of extinction.
Polar bears, widely seen as the animal on the front line of global warming, are predicted to be hard hit by melting polar ice caps.
But the debate at the Cites meeting in Bangkok focused on the additional threat to the species posed by international trade. “The polar bear is facing a grim future, and today brought more bad news,” said US delegation head Dan Ashe who warned the polar bear population could fall by two-thirds by 2050.
“The continued harvest of polar bears to supply the commercial international trade is not sustainable.”
The ban was rejected by 42 votes to 38, with 46 abstentions among the nations who participated in the poll in Bangkok – the proposal needed a two-thirds’ majority support to be passed.

Polar bears are prized for their skins – particularly in Russia – as well as other body parts such as skulls, claws and teeth and their are strict controls over their international trade.

About half of the roughly 800 polar bears killed each year end up in the international trade, mostly wild bears from Canada, according to expert estimates cited by the US.

The US, Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland) and Norway are home to a global population of 20,000 to 25,000 polar bears.

The WWF, which chose to oppose the ban in favour of concentrating on global warming said “habitat loss from climate warming, not international trade, is the primary driver” of an expected population decline.

Canada, which hosts the largest portion of the global population of polar bears and is the only country that still exports polar bear parts, opposed a ban, citing the need to preserve the traditions of the Inuit, an indigenous minority living mostly in the north of the country.

“The polar bear advances strong emotion. It is an iconic symbol of the Arctic,” said Canadian delegate Basile Van Havre.
