“OMFG…This is one of the worst cases I have seen & I’m furious that I can’t find any of the original details on-line, been searching for weeks, before posting!!”.

“I have even asked the petition author but no reply. All I know is what I have read from the petition, this is so Fxxxxd up…I wasn’t sure whether to show it but then again, you the public have a right to know.”

“Do you know the person in the poster?? If so contact those below. Please add your name to the others that are disgusted at this atrocity”

“I don’t speak any foreign language, I’m sure the guy on the poster is the guy who committed the rape, but not sure what the last paragraph means “Still in liberty waiting to be processed”?? does that mean they have caught him?”

” I have seen other pictures but will not show them out of respect for the dog, which I presumed died due to horrific injuries! R.I.P x”

“Please sign the petition & circulate to everyone you know. This person must be punished severely for this heinous act!”

On 18th of September 2012, the dog in the picture was brutally raped in the bathroom of a gas station in Brazil.

When people heard screams coming from the said bathroom, they called the police. Upon entry the room, they found the room covered with  blood everywhere and the poor dog in very serious condition.

The dog was  hospitalized with severe bleeding that could not be stopped due to her internal organs completely being d destroyed.

Just look at the picture and imagine the moments of horror that poor dog has lived, trying desperately to escape her aggressor, struggling throughout the entire bathroom.

Animal welfare organisation Associações AAPA, Amigos do Canil e SOS Bicho de Rua has started a petition that is addressed to the public prosecutor Cruz Alta/RS, calling for severe punishment of the abuser who is still in liberty while awaiting his process. Petition:-  

Egypt slaughters over 30,000 baby cows stranded at port

Comments Off on Egypt slaughters over 30,000 baby cows stranded at port

CAIRO: Egypt’s ministry of agriculture reported on Thursday that they had slaughtered over 30,000 baby cows who had been stranded for weeks at a Red Sea port. The ministry said that it had discovered what it described as “hormonal capsules” in the animals, local newspapers reported.

The stranded cows had made international headlines after first reportedtheir situation on September 1, including a petition that was signed by over 25,000 people globally urging the Egyptian government to free the baby cows from their horrific conditions.

The ministry chose to slaughter the animals instead.

Egypt slaughtered over 30,000 baby cows, but the anti-live export protests are growing.

The baby cows had remained on board the ships for over 6 weeks at Port Sokhna in what animal rights groups told are “horrendous and inhumane” conditions.

It is yet another incident that revealed the horrors of the live export trade.

Background on Live Export

Live export from Brazil and Australia to the Islamic world is a controversial practice that sees thousands of animals crammed into small crates and transported by sea to their destination to be slaughtered for food.

According to the ministry, tests had been conducted to learn more about the potential carcinogen that had been given to the animals before they would be unloaded. Tests had reportedly been ongoing for the past month at a private lab in Egypt, but no results had been conclusive.

According to a al-Shorouk newspaper report, the animals are likely to remain in their confinement for a number of weeks more in order for further tests to take place.

Earlier this year, some 3,000 of the cows died on a ship destined for Egypt after the Egyptian government refused to allow the ship to dock at a Red Sea port.

They were slaughtered as a “precaution,” the ministry said, outraging a number of Egyptians.

Animals Australia, the leading organization reporting on the controversial live export trade to the Middle East and Southeast Asia, said the incident was among the worst the industry had witnessed in years.

Animals Australia’s Campaign Director, Lyn White, said in a statement to that the ship was anchored at sea after being refused port in a number of countries, including Egypt, where the cattle were supposed to be offloaded.

It’s understood that ventilation problems on the converted livestock vessel, the MV Gracia Del Mar, had caused the deaths of more than half of the animals on board since the ship left South America for Egypt a few weeks ago. The ship was anchored in the Red Sea for weeks and saw more animals perish as a result.

This is nothing short of an animal welfare disaster. If remaining cattle are not offloaded more of these animals will suffer appalling deaths at sea. We are appealing to authorities in Egypt to offload the remaining cattle at al-Sohkna, as was originally intended.

“This disaster is just another example of the inherent risks of transporting animals by sea. It was only nine years ago that 5,000 Australian sheep perished on board the MV Cormo Express after country after country refused to allow it to berth.

“And this isn’t the first time that mechanical issues have caused mass deaths on live export ships. We only need to look to the breakdown of the Al Messilah in Adelaide last year. Had that vessel broken down on the open ocean it would have caused a similar welfare catastrophe — as thousands of animals would have died.

“Australia also exports cattle to Al Sohkna Livestock company in Egypt. Whilst we have an MoU with Egypt which should ensure the offloading of our animals, it has never been put to the test. The Egyptians thus far have flatly refused to allow the MV Gracia Del Mar to dock despite the mass suffering of the animals on board.

“If they continue to refuse to allow the surviving animals to be unloaded it would provide little confidence that the non-binding agreement with Australia would be honoured if a similar incident were to occur on an Australian livestock ship.

“It should not matter if these cattle aren’t Australian and if Brazil doesn’t have a similar piece of paper, they should not be abandoned to suffer and die at sea. We are appealing to Egyptian authorities to offload these cattle as a matter of urgency.”

Australia’s live sheep exports have fallen significantly over the past decade.

In 2010, three million sheep were exported compared with 6.3 million in 2001.

Australia’s government last year was to see a bill that would have banned live export to the world, but industry lobbyists fought back and forced the legislation off the table in a move that angered animal activists in the country and across the world, notably the Islamic world, which receives the lion’s share of live cattle and sheep from both Australia and Brazil.

Striking Examples of deforestation from NASA

Deforestation in Niger

Pctured here is the Baban Rafi Forest, which NASA calls the most significant piece of woodland in the Maradi Department of Niger. This area is located on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in Africa. On the left is Jan. 12, 1976. On the right, Feb. 2, 2007. NASA points out that the darker green areas in the 1976 photo represent the natural landscape of savannah and Sahelian vegetation. In the 2007 photo, these areas are greatly reduced, largely because the population in the area quadrupled. Agricultural demands are a major reason deforestation has increased so dramatically in the past decades. As in the case here, farmers often use these lands at near-continual production, giving the land virtually no time to recover its fertility.

Deforestation in Haiti

Here we see the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. On the left is Dec. 28, 1973. On the right is a snapshot taken Jan. 22, 2010. These photos perhaps best exemplify the political and economic strife that can exacerbate deforestation in a region. In the 2010 image, you can see significant deforestation on the Haiti side, with less occurring in the Dominican Republic. Often, the worst examples of deforestation often occur in areas in desperate need of political stability, as rising populations and unstable economies can lead to a greater encroachment on undeveloped lands. NASA calls Haiti embroiled in crisis “without parallel,” plagued by both a 2004 political coup against then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and the more recent devastating earthquake of 2010 that killed more than 300,000 people.

Deforestation in Paraguay

There are two different kinds of rain forest, temperate and tropical. Both rain forests are notable for having a high accumulation of rainfall when compared to plant growth. Temperate rain forests generally have a lower rate of evaporation and cooler temperatures. They are much rarer and occur in coastal regions at 37-60° latitude. Both kinds of rain forests are found on every continent except Antarctica, and only 50 percent of these forests remain on Earth.
Here we see part of the South American Atlantic Forest, which NASA calls one of the most threatened tropical rain forests on Earth. On the left is Feb. 23, 1973. On the right is Jan. 10, 2008. In almost three decades, the forest has been cut down to only 7 percent of its original size. The forest runs along the Atlantic coast through parts of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. However, it is the Paraguay part of the forest that has been most decimated. Tropical rain forests of our planet play a key part in cooling the planet. And this is not just South America’s problem. “Tropical deforestation will disrupt rainfall pattern far outside the tropics, including China, northern Mexico, and the south-central United States,”writes NASA.

Paraguay bans wild animals in circuses

Comments Off on Paraguay bans wild animals in circuses

ADI applauds Paraguay for becoming the latest country to ban the use of wild animals in circuses under Resolution 2002/12 passed this week by the Secretary of the Ministry of the Environment (Secretaría del Medio Ambiente).

Since ADI launched a major undercover investigation of animals in circuses in South America in 2007, a series of bans have swept across the continent as Governments have acted decisively to end the suffering of these animals. Bans are in place in Bolivia, Peru and now Paraguay. Legislation for the ban passed its second reading in Colombia earlier this year and legislation for a ban is well advanced in Brazil.

Jan Creamer, President of Animal Defenders International“We congratulate the Paraguayan Government for taking this progressive stand and everyone who has worked to secure this ban. This confirms how people all over the world are realising that it is no longer acceptable to confine, deprive and abuse animals in the name of entertainment.”

Earth’s Most Threatened Tribe – Colin Firth launches campaign to save them

Many Awá are still uncontacted, and they are running for their lives.
“One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil‘s Minister of Justice.
But it’s just not his priority. Let’s push it up his list.'” – Colin Firth

Evidence of attack’ where Indian child was reportedly ‘burned alive’

An investigation into the reported killing of an uncontacted Indian child by loggers, has uncovered disturbing ‘evidence of an attack’ deep in the Amazon forest.

The findings suggest loggers were operating 400 meters away from an uncontacted Awácamp where the burned remains of a child were allegedly found.

Brazilian NGO CIMI, The Order of Attorneys of Brazil and the Maranhão Human Rights Society, who jointly carried out the investigation, also found, ‘many indications that the Awá had been in the place of the reported incident.’

The team discovered the remains of four fires, as well as clear evidence of the Awá’s search for honey, and bindings used to help them climb trees.

However, CIMI says, ‘loggers’ tractors drove over the Awá’s camp, destroying everything. From the signs we can say that it was a large vehicle.’

The uncontacted Awá live in Brazil’s Amazon in an indigenous territory, but illegal logging is destroying much of their forest.

CIMI believes around four families lived at the camp, 6 kilometers away from members of the Guajajara tribe, who reported the body’s discovery.

Clovis Guajajara told the delegation he was, ‘very upset about the destruction’ and believed the Awá were scared away when they saw the loggers’ clearing

The Brazilian government’s Indian Affairs Department, FUNAI, is conducting its own investigation, and says the child’s death has not been confirmed.

The Awá have suffered brutal attacks at the hands of loggers who have threatened to kill them.

Survival is lobbying the Brazilian government to evict the vast numbers of illegal loggers who risk wiping out one of the world’s last nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes.

Many Awá are still uncontacted, and they are running for their lives.

Man brutally clubs dog while his son records it on Video

Comments Off on Man brutally clubs dog while his son records it on Video

North Limoeiro, BrazilHuston Texas news reported today about an incident caught on this shocking video of a man killing a dog in vegetation off the road.

The bleeding dog is seen crying in helplessness, fear, and pain while the shirtless man clubs it repeatedly on its head and muzzle, as his son tapes the video from above.

The dog soon dies after repeated fatal blows by the killer while both the man and the son videotaping the murder laugh as if enjoying the act.

In a statement on a Portugese blog site, it stated “the incident happened in North Limoeiro and the man who killed the dog in the video has been identified by the police; however, they are not revealing his identity and are calling him the alias “Antonio Medeiros.” The blog also tells that the clubbing of the dog was just “for fun”.

The dog is said to be owned by a lady named Ivone Maria of Pond Carnaúbas who reported this brutal attack on the 23rd, after identifying the dead body of her pet. Ivone Maria went to the civil police in North Limoeiro to file a complaint against her neighbor, who according to her account was the one committed the horrid act.

The police official in North Limoeiro are showing no signs of interest in arresting the man or his son. Ivone Maria has not been able to receive justice for the death of her beloved pet.

After the video of the brutal killing was released on several social sites and blogs, the citizens are demanding the police arrest the man in the video.

To this date the killer is still at large and even though the police know the man’s identity have not made an arrest.

Compassion in World Farming – Overwhelming response to Red Sea crisis

Comments Off on Compassion in World Farming – Overwhelming response to Red Sea crisis

Compassion in World Farming is saying a huge thank you to its amazing supporters, who sent 40,000 emails in 40 hours to the Brazilian and Egyptian authorities and the World Animal Health Organisation, the OIE, in response to a live transport crisis on the Red Sea.

The terrible news of a stranded ship, the Gracia del Mar, with thousands of dead and dying cattle onboard, came through to us on Friday March 2nd. We were told the ship, which had around 2,750 dead cattle onboard, had been refused permission to unload at its Egyptian destination and had failed to find a port willing to take her.

Compassion launched an immediate investigation and raised the alarm with the authorities in Brazil, where the ship had come from, and Egypt, urging them to adhere to and live up to their responsibilities under the OIE regulations for animals in transport and sort the situation out quickly.

Compassion also alerted its committed supporters, who sprung into action lobbying the two governments and the OIE.

We now have a fuller picture of what happened on this tragic voyage that caused the needless death and suffering of thousands of animals.

We are told the Gracia Del Mar, carrying 5,600 cattle, was hit by a freezing snowstorm off the coast of Algeria and thousands of the animals succumbed to the cold. The ship continued to Egypt where it was refused permission to unload in Egypt and spent several days in the Red Sea, with the dead cattle still onboard, unable to find anywhere to dock.

We’ve since been told the remaining live cattle were transferred from the ship and taken to land. We are still trying to ascertain exactly where they were taken.

Of course, we believe that the root cause is long distance live transport itself. This archaic trade should not exist. That is why will will continue to fight to end it. With our amazing supporters, we are confident we can win – like the transporters themselves, we are in this for the long haul.

Take action:

Join thousands of supporters who have urged the OIE to take action to ensure this sort of situation cannot happen again >>

Comments Off on Campaigning for farm animal welfare – Compassion in World Farming

Dying cattle are stranded at sea; more than 2750 are already dead. We must take urgent action now to end this welfare disaster.

The Gracia Del Mar set out from Brazil, bound for Egypt with thousands of cattle on board. It is currently in the Red Sea area, near Eritrea. The ship has had an engine failure which has led to a failure in the ventilation system.

Reports suggest that more than 2,750 cattle are already dead, and the situation is worsening with every hour that passes. The ship has attempted to dock at a number of ports, including

its destination port in Egypt, but has been turned away due to the number of dead and dying cattle. Reports suggest conditions on board are desperate.

The Brazilian and Egyptian authorities must take urgent action today to end this major welfare disaster. Not only is it their responsibility to do so, but they have the resources to provide the support and veterinary expertise so urgently needed.

Please send the email below to the Brazilian and Egyptian Agriculture Ministers calling on them to fulfil their responsibilities. They need to get the ship docked, get treatment to any surviving animals and bring this disaster to a close.
