John Birdsong IES Case

Published on 5 Apr 2014

This video shows a mare delivered to the Cavel horse slaughter plant in Illinois on behalf of kill buyer John Birdsong. The mare should have never been loaded in this horrific condition. This is just more proof that horse slaughter – no matter if on US soil or in Canada or Mexico – will NEVER be humane. Please share wide and far and urge your representative to support the SAFE ACT, legislation that would ban the slaughter of US horses for human consumption.

WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT THAT MIGHT BE DISTURBING TO SOME VIEWERS.

Animals’ Angels (www.animalsangels.org) latest video shows the brutal reality of the horse slaughter industry in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Argentina. Our investigators followed the slaughter horses’ torturous journey all the way from US auctions to kill buyer feedlots and from there to export pens and slaughter plants across the border. 

Please share this video wide and far, it is more proof that horse slaughter will never be humane and that it needs to stop immediately. 

Please support the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE ACT; S.541;H.R.1094) Act , legislation introduced to stop the export of US horses across the border for slaughter in Mexico & Canada and to prevent US horse slaughter plants from reopening. 

Contact your representative now and urge him/her to support this important legislation. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

US Man Accused Of Sexually Abusing Pet Peacock

Comments Off on US Man Accused Of Sexually Abusing Pet Peacock

New York, May 12 (ANI): An Illinois man has been charged with animal cruelty after the cops, who were investigating him for a different crime, found out that he had sexually abused his pet peacock.

According to the Daily Herald, David Beckmann was billed at the DuPage County jail on Wednesday on separate allegations of battery and attempted indecent solicitation of a child, the New York Daily News reported.

Authorities asserted that they discovered the pet bird, Phyl, dead in the 64-year- old’s garage on April 28, although particulars about how and when the peacock died were still unclear.

The cops revealed to the publication that they could not talk about the animal cruelty charges because they relate to a case involving a child.

In addition to the animal cruelty charge, court records show that Beckmann faces three other charges of harassment by telephone, two counts of marijuana possession, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, attempted indecent solicitation of a child and two counts of battery. (ANI)

Graphic Images: Unbelievable Abuse To Pregnant Pitbull, Set On Fire

Comments Off on Graphic Images: Unbelievable Abuse To Pregnant Pitbull, Set On Fire

“WTF…seriously what sort of psycho can do this to a dog; yet live amongst normal people & go undetected?? Somebody know’s the evil MF that did this, look at her face, she is pregnant for Christ’s sake…about to give birth!! Some neighbour knows this dog & who she belongs to…please if you have any kindness in your soul, tell the police; I’m sure you can do it anonymously with no fear of reprisal from the bastard that did this!”

“The monster that did this needs to be caught, if he can do this to a dog, what else is he capable of…those that know who he is, do you want it on your conscience if he does it again or hurts a child?? I hope the evil piece of shit that did it, is haunted whenever he closes his eyes, with the vision of one he loves aflame, burning, screaming in pain, shouting for his help…but he can do nothing…only watch while his worst nightmare unfolds each & every night…until the images send him crazy & he ends up in an asylum for the mentally insane! It’s nothing less than the sadistic bastard deserves! Better still, he could bar-be-cue himself; I would be happy with that!!”

“Please, can I ask that everyone say a pray for this poor sweetheart… lets hope that Petunia (her new name) recovers soon & has a beautiful litter of babies; all who finding loving homes. I especially hope & pray, Petunia also finds a new forever home where she will receive all the love she can handle! God bless her xx”

There is always so much controversy surrounding Pitbull Terriers!

So many people may not like them, but do they really have to set a dog on fire to prove their dislike?

Pregnant & set On Fire

It’s absolutely sickening; especially awful when the Pitbull is a pregnant female!

Not only was the dog set on fire, but afterward was hit by a car.

This maddening sense of abuse happened right in the south Chicago suburbs on Tuesday. That was when “It’s a Pittie” (IAP) Pitbull Rescue in Monee, Illinois were called in. Before IAP was contacted, another animal shelter had her. She required immediate medical assistance so IAP had to wait 24 hours for the dog’s release.

The poor mother-to-be had burns over 25% of her body. Due to the car accidentPetunia, as the dog is being referred to, also has internal injuries.

Pregnant Pit Bull Set On Fire

Pregnant Pit Bull Set On Fire

Why someone would have the audacity to do this in the first place is awful, but considering that the female dog’s milk has come in, it is extremely horrifying because she is likely to give birth in just about a week.

The person that carried forth the abuse will most likely never be discovered. This is very unfortunate indeed! No animal or human deserves treatment like Petunia received.

Culprits like whoever committed the abuse on Petunia make sure that they remain free from indictment. They do so by removing any identification that the dog may wear and fail to have them microchipped because to the abuser, the dog is ‘dispensable!’

No mother is ever dispensable but Petunia may be too weak to care for her coming litter which is yet another concern. She is receiving hydro-therapy treatments but needs constant care so that her burnt flesh does not get infected as that could prove life threatening.

So what if you do not like Pitbulls? Is that any reason whatsoever for someone to hurt them to this degree?

Shelters and rescues are filled with them. Perhaps the shelters and rescues should take in the individuals that abuse the dogs and cause them such utter pain; locking them away from harming yet another defenceless animal. It is because of those individuals that Pitbulls act the way that they do. “Yes, totally agree with locking the MF’s up & causing them intense pain!”

We need better laws. Not just laws that stipulate that Pitbulls are not allowed to live in certain areas, but laws that protect Pitbulls and other animals that are on the “hit list” from being treated with such utter disdain. Maybe if we began with the root cause, the dogs themselves would not have such a pathetic reputation and be treated to mortifyingly.

It really and truly is hard to believe that this poor dog has to go through all of this.

Dog lovers everywhere apologize for those that should know better but obviously do not!

Woman charged with animal cruelty after biting dog

Comments Off on Woman charged with animal cruelty after biting dog

A young US woman who allegedly bit her bulldog during a drunken argument with her mother has been charged with animal cruelty and domestic battery.

Neighbours called police after hearing loud screaming and pounding coming from the family home in Lake in the Hills, Illinois.

Police said 19-year-old Analise Garner hit and scratched her mother’s face and bit her on the right hand during the altercation.

The family’s 80-pound English bulldog had three bite marks on its back that were visible through its white fur.

“The bulldog finally did bite her back in self-defence,” said Sergeant Mike Smith.

“There were no charges against the dog,” he quipped.

Miss Garner, who was taken to hospital for treatment of the dog’s defensive bite, was also charged with underage drinking. She was released on $3,000 bond.

Debate intensifies over animal undercover filming | Seattle Times Newspaper

Comments Off on Debate intensifies over animal undercover filming | Seattle Times Newspaper

Animal welfare groups reacted with outrage Wednesday after the Iowa Legislature made the state the first to approve a bill making it a crime to surreptitiously get into a farming operation to record video of animal abuse.

The groups have urged Gov. Terry Branstad to veto the measure that was overwhelmingly approved Tuesday by the Iowa House and Senate, arguing that the measure would prevent people from publicizing animal abuse.

“The intent behind the legislation is to put a chilling effect on whistleblowers on factory farms,” said Matthew Dominguez, a spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States. “It begs the question of, what exactly does animal agriculture have to hide?”

Legislatures in seven states – Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York and Utah- have considered laws that would enhance penalties against those who secretly record video of livestock, though the efforts have stalled in some states.

The Iowa measure would establish a new penalty for lying on a job application to get access to a farm facility, making it a serious misdemeanor. A second conviction would be an aggravated misdemeanor.

A serious misdemeanor carries a fine of up to $1,500 and imprisonment up to one year. An aggravated misdemeanor can be punished by a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment of up to two years.

“Personally I think this is a real set back in the fight against animal abuse, it’s bloody ridiculous!. Animal abuse itsn’t done right in front of the public gaze, it’s done behind doors.   If I was a meat eater,  I would want know that the lamb I bought to eat, wasn’t abused; the slaughter process is bad enough without the animals suffering abuse before they get to the end of their lives!

The only real way of knowing if an establishment employs staff, who for whatever reason, take out their anger & frustration on the animals, is for undercover surveillance to be carried out. 

I have said for a long time that all establishments that deal with live animals, i.e. slaughter house should have CCTV at every stage of the slaughter…from coming off the trailer to being slaughtered…but it should be monitored by a third party!  Seriously, if people in the animal business don’t want it, I think they have something to hide!  

Hidden camera footage has proved beyond doubt that inappropriate abusive behaviour happens in many animal establishments.  Some undercover evidence has resulted in criminal charges against owners and workers, plants have been shut down, & slaughterhouses investigated!  Surely having whistle blowers is a step in the right direction against rampant animal abuse.

It doesn’t matter what line of business your in, if you know that there is going to be an inspection; steps are carried out to make sure everything is in order & ship shape!  Surely inspections should be carried out on the spot, no forward warning –  or else what’s the bloody point??

THEY HAVE MADE THIS LAW BECAUSE THEY ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS…THEY JUST DON’T WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW!” Jules B.
