Greyhound racing authorities publicly call it ‘abhorrent’. They also say it has been ‘outlawed’. But that hasn’t stopped high profile trainers across the country from subjecting defenceless animals to barbaric live baiting rituals in an attempt to gain a ‘winning’ edge on the racetrack.

They’re the victims you’ll never see at the racetrack. Tied up, terrified, and savagely mauled in widespread ‘live baiting’ sessions. Groundbreaking Animals Australia / Animal Liberation Qld investigations uncover the shocking truth. More @http://www.GreyhoundCruelty.com

***WARNING*** Please note that this video contains footage of which many will find distressing. To take immediate action to help animals without watching the video, head to http://www.GreyhoundCruelty.com

POSSUMS  

Native possums — a protected species — were also tied to lures and flung violently around training tracks. Before being used as live bait, one mother possum watched on helplessly as her baby was killed in front of her.

PIGLETS  

Piglets — one of the most intelligent and sensitive of all species — were a common choice among live baiters. Their futile squeals could be heard as their bodies were torn apart.

RABBITS  

After several laps, rabbits with pieces torn from their bodies twitch and writhe in agony. Their spine-chilling screams ring out across the training track.

KITTENS  

While investigation footage captured only piglets, rabbits and possums — kittens have long been reported to be among the victims of live baiting, too.

Investigation footage shows naturally gentle dogs provoked into displaying aggressive and violent behaviour in ‘blooding’ sessions. Those who don’t race fast enough to turn a profit are often killed — sometimes they are shot.

The inherent conflict of interest presented by those ‘promoting’ the sport also ‘policing’ it could not be more damning. While self-regulation continues, there can be little hope that live baiting will ever be eradicated from this industry.

You can help put a stop to this cruelty. Make your voice heard today.

The damning Animals Australia and Animal Liberation Qld investigations have revealed that this sadistic training method is all too common.Terrified piglets, rabbits and native possums are all victims of live baiting — tied to lures, flung around racetracks at breakneck speeds, and then mauled to death. Some animals who survived their first attack were ‘re-used’ multiple times…

Bait‘ animals are not the only victims of this industry. Greyhounds themselves — naturally gentle dogs — are often kept in deplorable living conditions off-track. Live baiters will taunt and incite their dogs to chase, attack, and ultimately kill small animals.

If dogs fail to ‘perform’, they too may be killed. Industry-wide, some 18,000 greyhounds are killed every year because they aren’t deemed fast enough to win races.

The big question is — how can state governments and sponsors continue to support an industry that has been exposed for such abhorrent widespread illegal activity?

With the horrific revelations of live baiting cruelty in the greyhound racing industry following our investigations, I have been desperate to share with you a side to greyhounds that didn’t make it to the media this week. This little video has gone viral — watch it now and you’ll see why!

Despite their deep pockets, greyhound racing authorities have utterly failed to take effective action to address shocking brutality and illegal activity at the heart of this ‘sport’. Apparently, they didn’t even know about it. That is, until investigations by two small charities on a shoestring budget exposed routine and systemic ‘live baiting’…

 Something else that will you make you smile: Schweppes, Hyundai and Bendigo Bank are just some of the big names to end their support of this cruel industry in recent days:
Schweppes, Hyundai, McDonald's, Autobarn, Bendigo Bank, Century 21In fact, of all the major corporate supporters, just one company continues to support greyhound racing. Click here to see who’s left.
 The greyhound racing industry is on notice. Those who are willing to tie up, torture and kill animals in pursuit of a ‘win’ now have a national spotlight on their activities for the first time. With dozens of trainers now suspended, thousands of possums, rabbits and piglets will now be spared from the horror of being used as ‘live bait’. But while greyhound racing continues, we fear that innocent animals will still be tied up and mauled to death on private training tracks — albeit more carefully hidden.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Together we can end greyhound racing cruelty, once and for all.

 Thank you.

Animals Australia and our colleagues at Animal Liberation Qld have been overwhelmed by the response to our investigations into the greyhound racing industry. Because you spoke out, this industry is under more scrutiny than ever before. State governments have launched inquiries; industry heavyweights have been stood down; sponsors are backing out; and commentators are questioning the future of the ‘sport’. Importantly, thousands of animals will be spared from the terror of being used as ‘live bait’. But there’s still much to do.

Please keep your voices loud, for the animals.

The integrity of greyhound racing has been called into question by a Panorama investigation which has exposed blatant cheating and the drugging of dogs at the heart of the sport.
The undercover investigation caught a trainer revealing how he dopes greyhounds in order to effect betting coups – some of which he claims to have paid out up to £150,000.
The programme’s findings have prompted animal welfare campaigners to call for the government to reconsider the sport’s self-regulatory status.

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION IS FAILING EUROPEAN ANIMALS

Comments Off on THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION IS FAILING EUROPEAN ANIMALS

When meat is imported into the European Union the law stipulates that the animal must have been slaughtered in line with EU legislation.

However, when EU animals are exported, the same rules are not afforded to them and instead they can face brutal treatment and long drawn out slaughter.

Every year three million European animals are sent on long, stressful journeys to be fattened or slaughtered outside the EU. A vast number of these go to the Middle East where Compassion’s recent investigation, in partnership with Animals Australia, has uncovered immeasurable suffering.

Please take a moment to watch the film and slideshow below to find out more about this deplorable trade. Be warned; some of the film is distressing to watch, but it’s essential concerned citizens find out where European animals are ending their journeys.

Please take a moment to watch and share our investigation. Warning: Due to its upsetting nature, you may need to verify that you are over 18 to watch the film.

When European farm animals are exported to non-EU countries every shred of protection they once received in their place of birth is rendered meaningless.

After enduring long, exhausting journeys by land and sea they may face terrifying ordeals at slaughter.

Animals are dragged by their limbs, bound up with ropes, pinned down by groups of men, beaten with metal rods, suspended upside down for extended periods of time, and eventually slaughtered in unacceptable ways that leave them conscious for many minutes after having their throats cut.

The European Commission has the power to take steps to stop this, but as each day passes without action more and more animals continue to suffer.

  • The European Commission must work towards ending the live export trade and if necessary replacing it with a trade in meat.
  • While a trade in exporting live animals continues, the European Commission must implement a scheme that will guarantee exported animals are treated in ways that prevent the worst of the suffering.
  • The European Commission must provide practical support to countries that import live animals from the EU in order that they can improve transport, handling and slaughter methods. This will not only improve the welfare of EU animals but also of any other animals slaughtered in those countries.

Please take action today. Email the Commission and call for an end to this suffering.

Australian shark cull starts after seven deaths: First animal is killed off coast in cull to prevent fatal attacks

Comments Off on Australian shark cull starts after seven deaths: First animal is killed off coast in cull to prevent fatal attacks

“When you enter the ocean you are at the mercy of the oceans killers; it is their domain, humans take the risk, sharks attack, it is in their nature…they should not be killed for their normal behaviour!”

UPDATED: 14:46, 27 January 2014

  • Western Australian government has placed baited hooks on drum lines to kill white, bull and tiger sharks over 10ft long
  • Policy comes after there were seven fatal attacks in the past three years
  • The first shark was killed by a government-contracted fisherman
  • Animal was shot off Castle Rock, near Dunsborough and dumped at sea
  • Activists threaten to sabotage drum lines and demonstrate against cull

A large shark was killed off the west Australian coast on Sunday, the first under a contentious new state government culling policy aimed at curbing fatal shark attacks.

The Western Australia government on Saturday began placing baited hooks on drum lines off popular beaches in the state capital Perth and to the south to kill white, bull and tiger sharks over 10ft long.

The policy is a response to seven fatal shark attacks in Australia’s southwest in three years.

Government spokesman Simon Beaumont said the first shark was killed by a government-contracted commercial fisherman on Sunday morning off Castle Rock near the town of Dunsborough, 155 miles south of Perth.

The shark was longer than three meters (10 feet) and was one of the three targeted species. Beaumont would not say which of the three species it was.

Once the fisherman had confirmed with fishing authorities that the shark was the required species and size, he shot it and dumped the carcass at sea, Beaumont said.

The policy has divided the community since it was announced several weeks ago and led to thousands of people demonstrating on Perth beaches against the shark cull.

Activists have threatened to sabotage the drum lines and threatened one fisherman who had accepted a government contract to catch sharks off Perth. He pulled out, citing the threats.

Cull: The Western Australia government began placing baited hooks on drum lines off popular beaches in the state capital Perth and to the south to kill white, bull and tiger sharks (such as the one pictured) over 10ft long

The federal government last week gave state authorities a special exemption from environmental laws to kill white sharks, a protected species.

Environmentalists argue that there is no evidence that the cull will reduce shark attacks. They argue it could even increase the shark danger by giving water users a false sense of security.

‘To think that we’re wasting this opportunity to tag and to find out more about these creatures, that we’re just going to slaughter them and dump them – it’s just such a waste of life,’ Rae Threnoworth, member of marine conservation group Sea Shepherd, told Ten Network television.

State Premier Colin Barnett was heckled by members of the public over the shark’s death as he officiated at a citizenship ceremony in Perth on Sunday.

‘I get no pleasure out of seeing sharks killed,’ Barnett told reporters. ‘But I have an overriding responsibility to protect the people of Western Australia. That’s what I’m doing.’

Graphic content: Slaughter Of Horses Causes Outrage: Petition To Sign

Comments Off on Graphic content: Slaughter Of Horses Causes Outrage: Petition To Sign

“Horses will continue to suffer if not properly restrained & the gun aimed at the right place, by someone trained to do so, for an instant death! The horses in this video were in open crates, outside, with no restraints etc. One horse actually has to be whipped to get it away from the horse in the kill pen, but when horses sense danger; they tend to stick with other horses. They are flight animals, just the sound of the gun would make them very skittish; they can smell fear & blood & being able to see their fellow horses killed straight in front of them is appalling! No horse is just going to stand there & not move its head around, i.e. no clean shot which means no instant death via a gun! . This place obviously has no empathy or respect; so let’s get the bastards closed down!”

December 13, 2012 by 

ALLEGATIONS of inhumane slaughter of horses at a western suburbs knackery have sparked outrage and prompted the Melbourne and Werribee Open Range zoos to source horsemeat from other knackeries.

Petition by Ella Edwards Melboune, Australia

Please sign Petition:-http://www.change.org/petitions/laverton-knackery-stop-slaughtering-horses-whilst-still-alive-treat-them-with-dignity?share_id=LVTXrnLsgj&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition

Secret footage shot by animal activists, the Coalition for Protection of Racehorses, and seen by Fairfax Media, shows several horses being killed at the Laverton Knackery, with at least one animal tied up and dragged along concrete while apparently still alive. The allegations are being investigated by the state’s meat regulator, PrimeSafe, as well as the RSPCA after Animals Australia – the group that uncovered cruelty to Australian cattle in Indonesia in 2011 – made a formal complaint.

Footage of a horse being dragged at Laverton Knackery

In a detailed letter to the Department of Primary Industries, Animals Australia claims dozens of breaches of animal cruelty, hygiene, welfare and meat industry laws, which could result in the cancellation or suspension of the business’ licence.

In one case, Animals Australia alleges a ”worker shot the horse twice, did not ensure the horse was dead, and then tied the horse to a tractor and dragged him across 60 metres of concrete and gravel after which he was found to still be breathing.

”The worker shot the horse again and the horse’s throat was then slit and the horse continued to make purposeful movements, paddling his legs and lifting his head off the ground until he eventually died.”

PrimeSafe chief executive Brian Casey said it would examine the potential breaches of the Pet Meat standard.

Mr Casey said horses are ”skittish” at the best of times but animals must always be handled and killed humanely. 

Laverton Knackery did not wish to comment when contacted on Wednesday .

The RSPCA confirmed that is conducting an investigation into animal cruelty, after receiving a complaint in November.

Last week, Animals Australia showed the video to Melbourne and Werribee zoos director Kevin Tanner. ”Zoos Victoria has ceased all supply arrangements with Laverton Pet Supplies following the presentation of evidence from Animals Australia showing inhumane treatment of horses at their premise,” Mr Tanner said. He said Zoos Victoria was also reviewing all other meat supply arrangements for all its zoos, including Healesville Sanctuary, to ensure suppliers adhere to the organisation’s Animal Welfare commitments.

Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses campaign manager Elio Celotto said the group was ”absolutely unsurprised” at the vision its activist captured.

”Primesafe, in my opinion, are not doing their job, these horses deserve to be treated with dignity,” Mr Celotto said.

Agriculture Minister Peter Walsh said he would closely monitor the investigations.

”Cruelty to animals will not be tolerated,” Mr Walsh said.Animal handling facilities that do not adhere to the rules and regulations regarding animal welfare can expect to face prosecution and have their operation licences cancelled.” “It’s no good just saying it, Welsh needs to act & prosecute all who do not adhere to rules & regulations; but then would lead to around 90% of slaughterhouses needing prosecutions!”

The allegations come amid renewed pressure on Australia’s live export trade after footage of cruelty to Australian cattle in Israeli abattoirs was screened on the ABC’s 7.30 on Tuesday night.

The new claims have again prompted calls from the Greens, independent Andrew Wilkie and some in the Labor caucus for the trade to be shut down or for tougher scrutiny by regulators.

Very Graphic Video: Cattle tortured in Gaza – Live Export, Cruelty Exposed

Comments Off on Very Graphic Video: Cattle tortured in Gaza – Live Export, Cruelty Exposed

“I have never witnessed such horrors, whereby those inflicting the pain & abuse, actually enjoy seeing the poor animals suffer! The crowds including children join in by cheering & laughing whilst the poor bulls are slowly slaughtered, or should I say executed; in front of an audience taking pictures & baying for blood! To end the barbaric cruelty of Australian Livestock, please help to stop Live Export by following the links at the bottom of this post.”

Background briefing. Stories of horrific abuse & torture; captured on video at Gaza!!

TORTURE OF AUSTRALIAN CATTLE IN GAZA

Animals Australia has lodged a significant legal complaint with the Department of Agriculture supported by extensive evidence showing the brutal torture and slaughter of Australian cattle in Gaza in October 2013. Locations and dates of these incidents were verified by translators and contacts in Israel.

The footage was filmed and uploaded to YouTube by civilians. Dozens of individual videos discovered by Animals Australia show the sadistic treatment, torture and slaughter of Australian cattle on the streets and in abattoirs in the Gaza Strip during the Eid al Adha (Festival of Sacrifice).

ORIGIN OF ANIMALS

The cattle in the videos have been identified as Australian through their ear tags which are of a type, size and shape that is unique to Australian exporters to Israel, as well as through the presence of NLIS (National Livestock Identification Scheme) RFID tags. Also, a number of ear tags directly correlated with ear tags of Australian cattle arriving in Israel in June 2013 aboard the livestock vessel Bader 3, which is operated by Australian exporter Livestock Shipping Services.

CIVILIAN INJURIES

On an equally serious note, the government reported 125 injuries to people, some critical, during these brutal slaughter practices on the streets of the Gaza Strip. Media reports also relay the concerns of Gazan citizens about the human health risks of blood, bones and skins being left in the streets after what they call the ‘indiscriminate’ and uncontrolled street slaughter of sacrificial animals.

THE EVIDENCE

The videos depict Australian cattle:

  • being beaten and dragged by ropes off trucks without unloading ramps;
  • being dragged, man-handled and chased along streets to slaughter locations;
  • tethered to street poles, tree trunks and trucks and having their legs bound before being forced to the ground and ‘strung out’ for slaughter;
  • having their necks stabbed at and slashed to weaken them through blood loss;
  • being stabbed in the eyes;
  • having their necks ‘sawn’ at with blunt knives;
  • being forcefully kicked, pushed/pulled/tripped to the ground using a series of ropes;
  • brutally slaughtered by being repeatedly stabbed at and having their necks slashed;
  • being strangled by neck ropes whilst ‘bleeding out’; and
  • ‘knee-capped’ with an assault rifle.

AUSTRALIAN LIVE EXPORT REGULATIONS

In 2011, the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) was implemented in response to overwhelming community concerns about the treatment of Australian exported animals. ESCAS placed legal responsibility for the welfare of Australian exported animals on exporters and required animals to be retained within approved supply chains that met base level international welfare standards.

The sale and slaughter of animals outside approved supply chains in Gaza represents a major breach of these regulations.

The major Australian exporter into Israel and Palestine is Livestock Shipping Services (LSS), whose parent company is the large Jordanian livestock import/export company, Hijazi & Ghosheh.

LSS is the exporter implicated for live export breaches in Jordan and Lebanon in June 2013 and October 2013. These cases currently under investigation involve the sale and slaughter of Australian sheep outside of approved supply chains, which in October resulted in horrendous street slaughter.

INTERNATIONAL ACTION

Animals Australia is currently working with UK based Compassion in World Farming, the world’s leading farm animal welfare organisation, on an action plan to address welfare issues in the Middle East, including lobbying religious leaders, political representatives, and the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) towards the introduction of animal protection laws. Evidence gathered will also be used to lobby European and South American live exporting countries towards transitioning to a carcass only trade. Animals Australia has also assisted in the drafting of animal protection laws in Jordan which are currently before the Minister of Agriculture.

Written Video Evidence 

Case 1 – 102 Cuts

This bull suffered no less than 102 cuts to his throat. His death, and that of many others during the 2013 Festival of Sacrifice, was filmed and shared on-line. The tags in this bull’s ears were distinctly Australian. But he died halfway around the world, in a makeshift slaughter room in Gaza.

With his legs bound and his body outstretched, the bull was helpless as a slaughterman clumsily cut at his throat with a blunt knife. The terrified animal was conscious throughout the prolonged and agonising ordeal, thrashing his head, blinking constantly and looking up at his tormentors as his throat was sawn open.

Australian regulations failed to prevent the suffering of this animal, and others like him.

Case 2 – Stabbed in the eye

This bull was chased by a mob through the back alleys of Gaza. When he wouldn’t move, he was whipped, punched and had his tail painfully twisted. In a terrified frenzy, he stampeded through the alleyways, with dozens of men fleeing in front of him. When he slipped and fell on the concrete, he was kicked — to force him back to his feet.

This animal constantly struggled as they tied him to a wall, bound his legs and pulled them out from under him. One man stood on his face and pushed a knife into his eye, while another began to cut at his throat. As the bull bellowed, they sawed at his neck with a blunt knife for almost a minute until his bellows became muted, as he choked on his own blood and died a slow and agonising death.

Case 3 – Target Practice

As this bull stood in a fenced off area, a short distance away, a man took aim with his assault rifle. But he wasn’t shooting to kill the bull quickly — he was aiming to ‘knee cap’ him.

A shot rang out, and the bull stumbled to regain his footing, limping away from his shooter. Again, the man took aim and fired. The bull nearly collapsed, but pulled himself up and again limped further away. One more shot rang out, as the bull staggered back, struggling to put weight on his injured legs.

The end fate of this animal and his eventual slaughter was not filmed. In the one and a half minutes of vision filmed by an onlooker, the bull was shot three times.

Case 4 – Beaten, Stabbed

With a crowd surrounding the truck, this Australian bull was repeatedly whipped, until, in a frenzy, he leapt from the back of the vehicle. As he flailed about and thrashed his head desperately against the tight rope around his neck, the mob shouted and chased him back.

When he slipped and fell on the gutter, a slaughterman approached and stabbed him in the neck. He clambered back to his feet and continued to struggle, but the rope around his neck meant his efforts were in vain.

Pulled up against a pole, he was violently stabbed again. With the taut rope still choking him, and blood flowing from his neck, he slumped to the ground.

Case 5 – Wide-Eyed Terror

This animal was tied to a tree. His front legs were bound together. His eyes widened in terror as a young man began to saw at his neck. Still conscious and blinking, he could do nothing but stand on his hind legs, with the weight of his body bearing down on the gaping wound in his neck. He died in a gutter, on the streets of Gaza.

Case 6 – Slipping In Blood

On a slaughter room floor, tied to a pole, this bull cowered from the slaughterman attempting to kill him.

The slaughterman thrust the knife into his neck. As the animal recoiled he slipped in his own blood. Each time he fell, he scrambled back to his feet, pulling frantically against his rope.

After almost a full minute of failed attempts to scramble from the slaughterman, he fell for a final time, too weak from blood loss to get back to his feet. As he landed on the blood soaked tiles, slaughtermen sprayed water into the wounds on his neck. He was not the only Australian animal to suffer and die in this room.

Case 7 –  Vocalising In Pain

This bull’s agonised bellowing, during his ordeal, conveyed his terror far beyond what any words could describe.

For almost two minutes after the first cut to his neck, this animal kept fighting. With each approach of the slaughterman he ducked his head or reared up, trying to avoid the knife stabbing at this neck. On at least a dozen approaches, the slaughterman thrust the knife in and cut deeper, and each time the bull vocalised in pain.

Finally, with blood streaming from his wounds, with one man pulling on his tail, three more pulling on a rope around his neck, and surrounded by a crowd of onlookers, he collapsed and died.

Case 8 – Hit, Kicked, Shoved

As this bull lay in the gutter, his neck half-severed, a stream of blood flowed down the road towards him — seemingly from another dying animal. Mixing with his own blood, the red rivulet flowed under and around him, filling the gutter where he lay.

Moments earlier, he had struggled to remain standing, as two men kicked and shoved him, trying to knock him over. When he had fallen and his throat was sawn open, young boys ran up to kick and hit the helpless animal.

The brutality he and other animals endured wasn’t necessary. It had nothing to do with religion. In fact, when these tragic videos were uploaded to YouTube, the suffering was condemned by Muslim commenter’s. It wasn’t ‘halal’. It was the tragic outcome of a live export industry that had failed to protect them.

Case 9 – Hit In The Face, Dragged From A Truck

This bull stood huddled together with two others on the back of a truck. With all his strength he resisted as a crew of men heaved on the rope around his neck. Even after being hit in the face with a broomstick, he continued to resist.

Moments later, as he lay dying on the slaughter room floor, the slaughterman paused, whilst cutting into his throat, to pose for a photo.

Case 10 – Stomped On

This animal’s death was crude and painful. Before reaching the slaughter room he had fallen heavily from a truck and was stomped on. The slaughterman thrust his knife into the animal’s neck, leaving a gaping hole. He then continued to thrust the knife deeper into the wound, un-phased by the suffering he was inflicting on the bull. With his neck agape, the bull clambered to his feet, pulling in vain against the rope around his head. When he collapsed for a final time it was clear that only his eventual death would bring an end to this animal’s suffering.

Case 11 – Hosed With Water

Already wounded from a stab to the neck, this bull let out a meek bellow as the slaughterman cut into him again. When he had fallen to the ground, the slaughtermen began spraying him with water. As he lay bleeding on the floor, they continued to hose him.

When water sprayed into his wounds he shook his head, trying to avoid it. Clearly weak from blood loss, when the next bull was slaughtered, virtually on top of him, he was too weak to react.

Case 12 – Half-Severed Neck

With his head strung up to a post and his front legs bound, this white bull kicked hopelessly at the air, while they slashed his throat. The crowd around him cheered and whistled as he suffered this agonising slaughter.

Even once his throat was cut, there was no end to his suffering. He was forced to hang there, his head pulled upward and the weight of his upper body stretching his half-severed neck wide open. Only his impending death could bring him relief from his suffering.

Filmed by civilians during the Festival of Sacrifice in October 2013, this footage shows cattle being terrorised by crowds and tortured in streets and makeshift slaughterhouses — all in breach of Australia’s live export regulations.

Most Australian politicians precondition their support of live export on animals being treated ‘humanely’ and in accordance with regulations. That is why Animals Australia has provided each MP and Senator with this evidence of abuse, and implored them to watch it. They are in the position to ensure that this never occurs again, and that those responsible for this cruelty are called to account.

Australia Takes Japan To The International Courts Over Killing Whales

Comments Off on Australia Takes Japan To The International Courts Over Killing Whales

I just received this & wanted to share it, whales have to be saved. They don’t produce young like dogs or cats do, if it doesn’t stop soon, our grandchildren won’t see wild whales; swimming freely in the ocean !!

Dear Julie,

In a landmark case, Australia has taken Japan to the International Court of Justice over its ‘scientific whaling’ program—one that kills hundreds of whales every year in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary. Japan, Iceland and Norway all continue their whale hunts, despite the fact that these gentle ocean creatures already face increasing challenges posed by marine pollution, climate change, ship-strikes, bycatch, and more.

Urge nations to make their waters whale-friendly.

While the court’s decision on Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean is expected by the end of the year, there has never been a more opportune time to pressure whaling nations to stop the cruel practice of commercial whaling.

Make your voice heard today.

Whales Need Refuge

In 1986, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) banned commercial whaling; yet even today, several countries continue the cruel practice. Why? Because under the 1946 IWC Convention, two loopholes allow countries to kill under the pretense of “official objection” or “scientific whaling.” However it’s labeled, whales are dying for commercial gain.

There is no excuse for continuing to allow this barbaric and outdated practice, especially as other threats to whales such as pollution and climate change increase. It is time to call on all nations to safeguard whales from this cruel and unnecessary threat to whales in their waters.

Join us in calling on world leaders to make their waters whale-friendly by banning commercial hunting and the transit of whale products, thereby giving whales needed refuge everywhere they feed, breed and migrate. No exceptions.

No Room For Whaling in the 21st Century

Whales face so many substantial threats–including climate change, pollution, entanglement, ship strikes–and all of these pale in comparison to hunting by Japan, Norway, and Iceland. These hunts are inhumane and unsustainable. What’s worse, the meat isn’t selling. Get involved, join us and help us protect these magnificent animals who really need our help! http://www.hsi.org/iwc

Video: Live Goat Exports Exposed

Comments Off on Video: Live Goat Exports Exposed

“All animals deserve respect & kindness, none more so than those who are raised, then killed for human consumption! 

Few Australians would realise that right now, in rural areas across the country, wild goats are being rounded up, packed in crates, and exported for slaughter. Even fewer have ever seen inside this trade.

Last month, Animals Australia conducted our first ever investigation in Malaysia — Australia’s largest live export market for goats. Once again, we discovered that the new live export ‘rules’ are being blatantly disregarded. And as a result, animals have been left totally exposed to cruel treatment.

Across 6 facilities in Malaysia, goats were filmed being roughly handled; stuffed into bags and car boots; and sold into unapproved facilities — often with their ear tags removed to conceal this clear breach of export regulations.

Like so many animals in the live trade, in their final moments of life, these goats had their throats cut whilst still consciousYou won’t witness such graphic vision in this video, but you will feel their pain, sense their fear and hear their cries.

This week Minister for Agriculture, Joe Ludwig, claimed that “99%” of exported animals are treated “humanely”. “What a load of shit!!” This could not be further from the truth. With a government and opposition who unwaveringly defend this trade, with regulations fundamentally failing to protect animals everywhere we look, it would appear that live exporters are getting away with 99% of the cruelty in this trade.

But with your help, we can ensure they can’t get away with it anymore. Every investigation, every email and phone call to a politician — every action you take — brings us a step closer to ending this trade in cruelty.

Please send an urgent message to our political leaders, calling on them to spare animals from such cruelty, by supporting a ban on live export.
