“THIS DESPICABLE HEINOUS CRIME MUST STOP….PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION BELOW. How can anyone say that chasing an animal with the intention to kill it is a normal act! These POS get a buzz out of chasing a small animal, purely to kill it…it’s the thrill of the chase; & they love it!!”

  • Images, released by anti-hunt campaigners, show men setting dog on fox
  • They then use spades to dig creature out of a hole before shooting it dead
  • Critics have today condemned ‘cruel’ and ‘horrific’ incident 
  • But Countryside Alliance say the men acted legally under Hunting Act

This is the moment a fox was dragged out of a hole and shot dead while children as young as five watched on.

The images, released by anti-hunt campaigners, show a group of terriermen setting their dog on the  creature.

The fox tries attempts to hide in a badger’s sett – but the three adults fire into the ground and use spades to dig it out.

These images show the moment a group of men unearthed and shot a fox as three young children watched on

A farmer who captured the killing on camera says the group then called over three children to show them the remains.

The men can then be seen walking away with two dead animals. It is unclear where and how the second fox was killed.

The shocking incident happened shortly after a hunt on December 28 by the Modbury Harriers, which rides in south Devon.

The League Against Cruel Sports has handed the photos over to the RSPCA and asked them to investigate it as a possible breach of the Hunting Act..

The law bans hunting foxes with a pack of hounds – however it doesn’t cover the use of dogs to flush out animals underground.

The farmer, who has asked not to be identified, said the fox was initially chased across the field by hounds.

The Countryside Alliance said there was ‘no question’ the behaviour was legal – describing the killing as ‘professional and humane’.

“Just read the above comment on the picture…how can any sane animal lover, who owns just a dog or cat; say this is normal!! I see no difference in this than I do inhumane POS chasing & killing elephants or rhino…they are all sentient beings FFS!!”

The huntsmen moved on but before it could climb out of the badger’s set three men with guns and spades arrived – with three children following close behind.

The farmer said: ‘I sat there in disbelief – how could those guys think any of what had played out was fit for young children to witness?

‘I watched in horror as a whole pack of hounds poured into our neighbour’s field then piled into our meadow.

They made that hideous blood-curdling squealing – known as ‘speaking’ – which means they are on the scent of a fox.

‘I saw a beautiful vixen flash across the meadow and disappear into an old badger sett on my neighbour’s farm.

‘At the top of the hill I saw a couple of guys carrying spades and a terrier on a lead. They were going to dig her out and kill her right then and there.

‘The men came down and filled in the exit holes to stop the fox escaping and then called the children over to watch as they dug out and killed the young vixen.’

Sick Neanderthals!!

The farmer said the three men came across a second badger inside the hole which they also shot dead as the children craned their necks to see what was happening.

He added: ‘This is the dirty underbelly of fox hunting, the bit they don’t like even their followers to see.

‘But I was disgusted to see the terriermen had brought three youngsters to watch – one was only about five years old.

The farmer, who keeps a flock of 140 breeding ewes and a few chickens, is strongly anti-hunting and has complained about huntsmen trespassing on his land.

oe Duckworth, chief executive of the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS), said: ‘This horrific incident of animal cruelty shows not only a total disregard for the dogs and foxes but also for the welfare of the children.’

The Countryside Alliance, however, said there was ‘no question’ the behaviour was legal – describing the killing as ‘professional and humane’.

Spokesman Tim Bonner said the outrage merely demonstrated that outsiders do not ‘understand the realities of the countryside and country life’.

Mr Bonner said he had spoken to the hunt, who told him the killing had been carried out as ‘pest control” with the permission of the landowner.

He said: ‘The children were not in the hole – they were close by – and as far as we are concerned it was a totally professional operation and nothing which should upset anyone.

‘They were using the terrier work exemption and properly, professionally and humanely managing the killing of those two foxes.

‘There would be plenty of children of that sort of age involved in pheasant shoots and ferreting.

‘The vast majority of children eat meat and at the end of the day it is a dead animal.’

The Hunting act:-

The Hunting Act came in to force in February 2005 and was passed under the 1997 Labour government. It bans hunting any wild mammal  – including foxes, deer and hares -with dogs in England and Wales.

Under the Act it is completely legal to ‘flush out’ – i.e. coax an animal from a hole or a sett – with dogs.

It is also legal to drag hunt with hounds. This is when the dogs are trained to follow an artificial scent and is now common practice across the country.

Hunting mammals with dogs was banned in Scotland two years earlier under the Protection of Wild Mammals Act 2002.

It is still legal to hunt in Northern Ireland.

Breaking the law is a summary offence. Those found guilty of doing so would be fined.

There were 181 convictions under the Hunting Act up to the end of 2010.

WARNING EX. VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES: Laura the Dog Physically and Sexually Abused

Comments Off on WARNING EX. VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES: Laura the Dog Physically and Sexually Abused

“WTF…ABSOLUTELY SICKENED…I was in two minds whether to post this because of the graphic content & the reaction it will raise; but we have to speak up for those who cannot! The depth of my hatred and disgust for the human race gets worse every single day. I cannot comprehend the pain & suffering this poor dog went through at the hands of a human being; nigh monster!! The sick minded POS that abused Laura, is not fit enough to scrape shit off shoes with his/her tongue; never mind breathe the same air as normal beings! I hope whoever did this is found & quickly, they need to pay big time! Evil generally seeks its own benefit at the expense of others and is based on general malevolence!! Whoever did this I hope they suffer a life of pain & abuse; it’s nothing less than they deserve!! PLEASE if anyone recognizes this dog, or knows who it belongs to, please contact your local police or http://www.lasthopek9.org or https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

“Kudos to those taking care of Laura; I know they are doing everything possible to return Laura to good health…please see Laura’s Facebook page for updates etc!”

PLEASE NOTE VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW – VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED

Laura was scheduled to die at the Brooklyn Animal Control Center in NYC. A fate that so many face, but to think that Laura almost didn’t make it out of there is unfathomable.

Volunteers reached out to Last Hope K9 Rescue in Boston, Massachussetts to intervene and they immediately took actionhttp://www.lasthopek9.org/donate/

At the vets, Last Hope K9 Rescue learned that Laura had human bite marks on several areas of her body. She presented with redness and swelling around her eyes, wounds on her front and hind legs and mouth.

While these wounds are horrific enough, the depth of Laura’s abuse was much deeper. What was initially thought to be a mammary tumor and prolapsed uterus ended up being a sexually transmitted disease.

During her examination (by a male vet), Laura tucked her head in behind his neck and let out a loud sigh as he examined her backside.The doctor said it was like she was almost embarrassed. Despite the pain she must have been in, Laura never snapped or acted out, she just patiently sat there. To imagine that she endured this abuse for an extended period of time is no consolation.

Even with this level of repeated, unimaginable abuse, Laura is forgiving. She wants nothing more than the love and acceptance of people, despite the injustices bestowed upon her for who knows how long. Laura’s recovery and treatment will take at least 6 month.

In the shelter, Laura’s abuse was evident, but it wasn’t until she was examined by our vet that we truly came to understand all that Laura has endured. For Laura to be as loving and trusting as she is with humans, speaks volumes to the kind of dog she is.

She is currently in treatment for her conditions and her emotional healing has begun in her foster home. Laura has touched the lives of so many just by being her sweet-natured self. She deserves the very best and now she will get it.:-https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

 Unbelievable and disgusting case of animal abuse: Dog RAPED by humans and left for dead

LAURA WAS RAPED & ABUSED! Here is her story. Please consider to contribute to her fundraiser Lisa Anne Bakal wrote: “Horror upon horrors happen daily to these innocent dogs. Laura was another stray pit bull who entered the Brooklyn shelter.

They thought the growth on her was mammary tumors. When she hit the kill list, a good friend of mine who is a volunteer did all she could to get Laura’s life saved. She was one of those dogs who just “get you”. Last Hope K9 Rescue stepped in and saved her at the 11th hour.

Once they got her to their vet, the real horror was discovered. She put her head down and sighed as the “male” vet went behind her to examine her. It turns out those “tumors” weren’t tumors at all. She was repeatedly RAPED by a HUMAN and she has a sexually transmitted disease. She has HUMAN bite marks all over her little body.

She will need 6 months of heavy medical treatment to rid her of the STD she contracted from this filthy parasite who raped her. My eyes will never be dry, the tears are never-ending. Please follow her page on FB “Love for Laura” and the wonderful Last Hope K9 Rescue for updates.

I have a Yorkshire Terrier who had to have both eyes removed within 1 month of each other. We took him to the vets numerous times, saying he just didn’t seem right; as an owner who loves their dog, one knows if & when something is wrong!! However, the vet kept telling us he just had infections, which he was treated for.

Two years ago on Christmas Eve, we knew something was seriously wrong with Harry; so we rushed him to the vet. His retina had detached & the pressure in his eye was so high, he must have felt like his head was about to burst. He went straight into theatre, there was nothing they could do, other than to  remove the eye then & there.

They told us his other eye had glaucoma & may have to come out as the retina could detach in that one also. After a month of seeing him refuse food & just wanting to sit somewhere quiet, we couldn’t bear to see him go through so much pain again, so we told the vets to take his remaining eye out also. We learnt that the pressure in that eye was triple what it should have been, so we made the right move!

Harry after having both eyes removed due to Glaucoma

Having had both eyes out, Harry is virtually no different. As long as we don’t move furniture around, he knows where he is going & will often run from one room to the other…which amazes me!!  Most people don’t even notice he has no eyes.”

“He is the same dog, just as cheeky & mischievous…just without eyes! He loves to be cuddled up with me on the settee or even riding on my wheelchair, he knows he is safe, because he knows he is loved & gives that love back tenfold; there is no other feeling in the world, like that!!”

Bait Dog Found Duct Taped In California Needs A Second Chance At Life

Comments Off on Bait Dog Found Duct Taped In California Needs A Second Chance At Life

“WTF…why?? Why would you do this to a dog, unless for the reason given below; but if that’s the case why wasn’t the dog covered in bite marks. However she ended up there, someone put her there & somebody knows who did it…please…ease your conscience & tell the police or ring the shelter if you know anything!! Next time it might just be a dog covered in bite marks, ultimately dead! The person who did this is a psychopath…if he can do that to a dog, what else will he turn his hand to?” 

The female white pit bull terrier now named Tiffany was found Saturday with duct tape completely covering her eyes. Her caretakers think that she had been hog tied and used as a bait dog.

DOG TIED WITH DUCT TAPE NEEDS IMMEDIATE RESCUE

Currently in the San Bernardino Shelter, Tiffany needs to be rescued immediately or she will be euthanized.

Bait dogs are the most heartbreaking victims of dog fighting. Any dog could be unlucky enough to be rendered helpless by being tied up and then thrown into a fighting ring with a dog trained to kill.

Humane supporters are currently raising funds on Facebook for her adoption expenses.
The page is dedicated to the United Hope for Animals Baldwin Park Shelter Support Program where supporters connect shelter pets with loving, permanent homes and rescue options through effective networking.

Tiffany may have been used as a bait dog. She needs immediate rescue and is currently at San Bernardino City Shelter.

Can she be saved? Imagine what life must have been for this dog?

It appears her ears may have been cut in a crude manner, and she appears to have recently given birth.

If you are interested in rescuing Tiffany, please contact the San Bernardino City Shelter located at 333 Chandler Place in San Bernardino, Cal.

Tiffany’s identification number is A442565. Call (909)-384-1304. You can also follow the volunteers currently trying to organize Tiffany’s rescue by clicking here.
