Prison Sentence for Bagshaw after Hillside Film Cruelty at Slaughterhouse

Hillside are encouraged to hear that, today at Stafford Crown Court, Anthony Bagshaw has been sentenced to a custodial term of 10 months in prison and banned from keeping, owning, transporting or delivering farm animals for 15 years.

Over the last 20 years Hillside’s Farm Animal Investigations have exposed a great many cases of animal cruelty and neglect right across the country.   To our great disappointment, much of these have not been treated seriously by the Authorities.  We are pleased that today an appropriate sentence was handed down and we hope this will go some way to discourage others who may be involved in animal cruelty.

It is worth noting that, had Hillside’s Farm Animal Investigation team not been able to obtain the harrowing evidence of barbaric cruelty happening behind the closed doors of this ‘High Class’ family slaughterhouse, it would still be going on right now.  We hope the FSA will rise to the challenge of their role, which is so vital in protecting farm animals the dreadful abuse that is all too common in the farming industry.

Tales From South America (By Venus).



I was in a distant country, in South America. I wanted to visit friends.

The supermarket, where this photo was taken, was a great one and had everything to sell!

Suddenly my eye falls on this chamber of horrors. Department “meat”! It was not all as neat as in the picture when I saw the heads.

One was perched, one other tipped down, the third one was behind and not be seen.

Altogether there were five heads.

I stay in front of the glass and look in.

Motionless, I cannot believe it! The butcher comes and asks what I want. A photo, I say, can I take pictures of the pig heads? Of course, he said, and begins to arrange the heads. The image must be “beautiful”, he says. He tries, which head to the right, which left.

The chunks of meat disturb a bit, he says, they are not “beautiful” and make the picture bad. Gradually other people gather around me, they like the idea of taking pictures, they smile and make comments.

The cruel sight of the dead, still bleeding heads of creatures does not seem to touch them.

A few years ago this would be inconceivable. Today the farm industry no longer needs to protect the corpse consumers, because it knows: the apathy of modern man is secure.

Suddenly, the security personnel appear. “Photography is prohibited”, they say, and they want to immediately deleting the picture.

I save myself and my picture with great effort, and leave the supermarket.

Photographing murder victim has been banned, but its murder does not!

That is the prevailing morality of a society which every day fed by the suffering and the blood of animals.

A society that lives on the edge of the moral minimum.

A society of cretins.

Every time I look at this photo, I think:

Death is a master from a world without empathy.


And regards to you, dear Mark.

Mexico: Petition – Ban Dogfighting Throughout Mexico.


Fight dogfighting in Mexico

mexico dogfighter

Dear Mark,

Dogfighting is a gruesome spectacle that pits one dog against another—forcing them to fight until they are seriously injured or worse.

This is a highly unpopular event in Mexico entangled with dangerous people and organized crime. In dogfighting there is no winner. The losing dog is often killed—by his opponent or by his owner— and the “victorious” animal often dies from wounds sustained during the fight.

Please stand with us today by signing our petition to ban dogfighting throughout Mexico »

While dogfighting is banned in several Mexican states, there is no federal law that explicitly prohibits it and it is not typified in the federal criminal code. Not only is this tragic for Mexico, but even in areas where dogfighting is outlawed like the U.S., American-based dogfighters will come to Mexico to participate and avoid law enforcement.

It’s time to stop the relocation of dogfighting and instead put an end to this cruelty.




With your help, we hope to pass legislation that criminalizes dogfighting at the federal level while encouraging people to use our tip line to report suspicious activity. We also plan to train local law enforcement to respond effectively to these reports.

Please lend your voice to these innocent dogs by calling for an end to dogfighting in Mexico »

Together, let’s work to ensure that this terrible competition is banned and that strict penalties are enforced.

Thank you for all you do to help animals.

Sincerely, Anton Aguilar

Executive Director Humane Society International/Mexico



Serbia: Disturbing Abuse – Criminal Charge – But Will Authorities And EU Actually Do Anything ?

Serbian Flag

There are some very disturbing images in the attached PDF document – click on the link in Blue below.

We would hope the Serbian authorities will act on the information provided, but experience from the past tells us not to hold our breath too much.


Krivicna prijava, Konji i druge zivotinje u Jagodini,kod Slobodana Milosevica, 22.08.2016._


And the EU Enlargement Commission ? – just the same.

And yet they tell us that Serbia is a ‘candidate country’ (for membership) which means that it should be showing that it is applying ‘the rule of law’.

We are sending the charge to the EU anyway – but expect nothing in return.

Iz kancelarije EPAR-a dostavljena je Prijava OJT -u, RVI I PU Jagodina.

This  is  charge against person who still did  do the same crimes , torture animals  in opposite to Serbian laws , still long time , because  he was inadequately punished – opposite to Serbian laws , he repeats  a  criminal acts.

Ireland: Petition – Justice for Dog Stabbed and Doused In Chemicals.


Target: Claire Loftus, Director of Public Prosecutions in Ireland

Goal: Demand that the person responsible for stabbing a dog and dousing him in chemicals be sentenced to the maximum penalty possibly.

A family dog suffered serious burns after he was doused in chemicals. The attack occurred in the dog’s own backyard. Demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

Shocking images show the dog’s torso completely burned by an unknown chemical. The dog also suffered three puncture wounds in his side. Authorities claim that the dog was likely held down through the fence during the attack. Though he sustained substantial injuries, the dog is expected to survive.

Brazil: Government Plans To Approve 40 Mega Dams In Amazon Rainforest – Deadly For Flora and Fauna.



Para marcar o Dia Internacional das Florestas (21 de março), lideranças Munduruku foram até um trecho do rio Tapajós considerado sagrado pelo povo para passar um recado para o mundo: “Mantenham o Rio Tapajós vivo”. Segurando faixas em diversas línguas, eles protestaram, ao lado de ativistas do Greenpeace, contra a construção de barragens no rio que sustenta sua cultura e modo de vida. Ao todo, há 43 grandes hidrelétricas previstas para a bacia do Tapajós, sendo cinco já planejadas. A maior delas é a de São Luiz do Tapajós, próxima a Itaituba, no Pará, que, se construída, vai afetar a vida de povos indígenas e ribeirinhos, além de destruir uma área de intensa biodiversidade na Amazônia. Terra Indígena Sawré Muybu - Itaituba, Pará. 18/03/2016. Foto: Fábio Nascimento/Greenpeace. Greenpeace Brazil activists have joined forces with Munduruku Indigenous leaders to protest the Brazilian government's plans to build a mega dam on the Tapajós river, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest in the Pará state.Using traditional canoes, activists have joined the Munduruku on a sacred part of the Tapajós River to send a clear message to the world: "Damn the dam. Keep the Tapajós river alive". Together, they unfurled a 20X30 meter banner on the river demanding an end to the São Luiz do Tapajós dam. The protest celebrates the International Day of Forest, on March 21st. Sawré Muybu Indigenous Land - Itaituba, Pará, Brazil. 18/03/2016. Photo: Fábio Nascimento/Greenpeace.

Dear Mark,

The Amazon rainforest is under threat. The Brazilian government want to grant permission for over 40 destructive mega dams to be built right through the heart of the forest. This could completely drown endangered wildlife, and displace thousands of Indigenous Peoples.

In order to build one single dam, greedy corporations must also destroy hundreds of kilometres of fragile rainforest for roads, workers’ housing and construction work. Multiply this by 42 and you can see how the levels of devastation will be catastrophic.

Will you help us save the Amazon from destructive dams Mark with a regular gift?

We must act now to stop these dams from going ahead. We need to increase surveillance in the Amazon so we can photograph dam destruction and gather the evidence we need to lobby big business. We need to keep up the pressure on global brands such as Siemens* so they can see how toxic this project is, and agree not to get involved. But we can’t do this alone, we need your help. 

dam 2

Will you help fund our campaign with a regular gift? It takes just two minutes to do:

Donate £3 a month
Donate £5 a month
Donate £10 a month
Donate another amount

Government and big industry see this as a massive business opportunity. Global companies like Siemens* are in a reckless pursuit for profit and have no consideration for the destruction their involvement will cause.

We can and will stop mega dams from destroying the Amazon.

Thanks for everything you do.

Canada: He was lured with bait, impaled with a spear, and left to suffer – Take Action.


hsi 1

Tell the Alberta government to ban trophy hunting!

Dear Mark,

He was lured with bait, impaled with a spear, and left to suffer, possibly for hours, before he finally died. The agony endured by this black bear and the twisted, gleeful reaction of his killer, an American trophy hunter, were captured on video and posted on YouTube, using a camera attached to his seven-foot-long, homemade weapon.

With the public rightfully outraged by this footage, shared by shocked viewers all over the world, now is the time to take action to prevent similar cruelty to other animals.


Take Action 3 

Urge the government of Alberta, Canada, where this slaughter took place, to prohibit all trophy hunting.


Alberta’s government says it will ban the use of spears this fall during a regulatory review. But, while the government is to be commended for a swift response, spears are rarely used, and the most widely used killing methods in Alberta trophy hunts—which are just as torturous—will remain entirely legal unless more is done.

Trophy hunting is opposed by the overwhelming majority of Albertans and millions of people worldwide. It’s high time to outlaw this cruel practice.

Please, take just a moment now to ask Alberta’s government to ban not only the use of spears, but all baiting of animals and all trophy hunting.

Thank you for caring about animals.

19/8/16 – Donation to help Annemarie start a much better life.

Dear Mark,

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for supporting our projects.

Your kind donation will go directly to helping our animal welfare initiatives in Asia.


Further update 18/8 1157GMT.  Annemarie arrives at sanctuary.

LIVE – so you know how this ends?

Rescued sun bear Annemarie arrives, she leaves the truck and is wheeled off to quarantine ahead of a new life.

And if that was all that happened this would be the greatest day in the life of this bear.

For the rest of us it would be a day to remember for all the right reasons. A day when seven years of cruelty ended for beautiful Annemarie.

Except something else happened.

success 2

Update 18/8 0845GMT – – Things are now underway – watch the first short video here:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdYgajvd4jo




Animals Asia tweeted: Follow a LIVE timeline of Annemarie’s rescue starting around 9 hours form now:

Bought as an exotic pet while just a cub, this seven-year-old sun bear has only ever known life behind bars – until now.

Follow the rescue live here from 8am Vietnam Time, Thursday, August 17.

Tomorrow an Animals Asia rescue team will head to Nam Dinh province to rescue the female bear. She was originally bought by the current owner’s father who has now passed away. His son – having learnt of the legal requirement to register bears – is keen to do the right thing and voluntarily hand over the bear.

While the illegality of the bear bile industry means that owners will routinely deny extracting bear bile, it’s believed that in this case, the bear has not suffered bile extractions.

However with bile farms still operating and with a market for bear parts for use in traditional medicine, the rescuers are thankful for the voluntary handover and keen for it to take part as soon as possible.

The bear will be given an anesthetic ahead of a transfer to a transport cage before being moved to Animals Asia’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre almost 200kms away.

The rescue is going ahead following liaison with the local Forestry and assistance from local charity ENV.

The bear has been named “Annemarie” by the rescuers – after their previous Bear and Vet Team Director and friend Annemarie Weegenaar who recently moved on after a decade in the post.

Tuan Bendixsen Animals Asia’s Vietnam Director said:

“At seven years old this is still a young bear and one that can enjoy a full life in the future. However, there is always a physical price to pay for these bears when they have suffered a lack of space, poor diet and inexpert care. Our vets will carry out a health check as part of the rescue to ensure Annemarie is safe to travel – and she’ll enjoy ongoing rehabilitation and vet care back at our sanctuary.”

It’s likely that this rescue can be completed inside a single day with the bear entering sanctuary quarantine the same day.

Animals Asia has rescued nearly 600 bears – the vast majority from the bear bile industry. Annemarie will be the 150th bear currently being cared for at the Vietnam sanctuary.

Around 1,200 bears are still caged in Vietnam by the bear bile industry with over 10,000 more in China.

Petition: Punish Patron Who Brought Baby Lion Into Nightclub for Selfies !

Punish Patron Who Brought Baby Lion Into Nightclub for Selfies

Take Action 3get involved 2

Petition link: 



Target: Mrs. Elizabeth Glibbery, Manager of Toronto Animal Services

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the patron who brought a lion cub into a nightclub to take selfies.

A patron allegedly brought a lion cub into a nightclub and used him to take selfies. The cub was reportedly rented from a zoo that is already facing animal cruelty charges. Demand the maximum penalty in this case.

The Instagram page for Lavelle, a nightclub in Toronto, was flooded with photos of patrons holding and playing with a lion cub. The club claims it was not involved in the lion cub’s appearance and removed the patron from its premises. The patron allegedly obtained the cub from the Bowmanville zoo, a zoo known for its reported mistreatment of animals.

Using a wild animal for social purposes is cruel and illegal. Toronto Animal Services is investigating this incident. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.



Dear Mrs. Glibbery,

A lion cub was brought into a Toronto nightclub and used as a prop for selfies. A patron reportedly rented the cub from a zoo. We demand that you recommend the maximum penalty in this case.

Many recognized the lion cub by his collar. He appears to be one of four lion cubs born at the Bowmanville zoo, a zoo currently facing charges of animal cruelty. The zoo advertises “lion cub encounters” and has rented its animals out to the public in the past, according to reports.

This lion cub is still very young and needs to be with his mother. Passing him around a nightclub is dangerous to both the cub and its patrons. We demand that you recommend the maximum penalty in this case.

China: They’re trapped in the world’s saddest zoo – Petition and Actions.


polar bear display china


They’re trapped in the world’s saddest zoo

Dear Mark, It’s been called the “world’s saddest zoo,” and with good reason. Arctic foxes, beluga whales, walruses, a wolf and a polar bear are shut inside tiny, windowless, virtually barren rooms in the Grandview Mall in Guangzhou, China.

These animals are living in conditions so completely removed from their natural habitats that they represent one of the most distressing examples of animal deprivation I have ever seen.

The belugas swim in murky water. The foxes are malnourished and listless. And the polar bear sits silently day after day as shoppers stop to stare at and pose for selfies with him.


Please help us speak up for these poor animals!

Take action now to help close down this horror show and send its inhabitants to a sanctuary.



No animal should ever be exploited for entertainment, but the Grandview doesn’t even come close to meeting any internationally recognized standards. It is devastating to see these animals suffer helplessly with shoppers constantly banging on the glass of their exhibits.

HSI is supporting our Chinese partner groups in their petition to the governor of Guangdong and our friends at Animals Asia Foundation to try to help these animals in desperate need. We have already raised a complaint with a Chinese office, and now we need to add your voice to our call for swift and decisive action.

We can’t just leave these animals to languish endlessly.


Take Action 3

Please sign our petition to re-home them immediately to a more humane and appropriate setting.


Thank you for caring about animals.

Serbia: ‘Felix’ Shelter Crisis – Read More And See The Situation – Then Mail The New Mayor.

Serbian Flag


felix 30 april 4

Felix Oct4


SAV message – we have known for a few months that Danica was ‘unwell’ – but nothing more really. Yesterday (4/8) she e mailed us with the terrible news about her situation and the fact that Jasna is having to take on all the responsibility for the shelter and its occupants. Jasna is unwell herself as you can read in the following message from her.

How typical is this ? – hunters and animal abusers get away scott free, and go on abusing and killing, whilst someone like Danica, who gives up everything to save and rescue cats from the street; is now struck down by such a terrible condition. There is no justice in this world.

felix 18 dec2

I have been thinking overnight how to do a current situation report on shelter Felix; but now Jasna has written today and she basically says everything that needs to be known about the shelter and the current situation.

It has been suggested by some today that the shelter has an urgent meeting with the Municipality, because it is officially the law duty of Subotica city  to care about  homeless cats too.  Unlike all stray animal issues in Serbia, we expect no positive results; municipalities do not care about stray animals; which is why we have argued before that it is essential that all Serbian welfare groups work together and put their name to an official letter to the government and municipalities; reminding of their lawful obligations to get animals protected.  Sadly, experience shows that people will not forever keep funding something which the municipalities have a legal responsibility for, but whom just ignore the situation.  When people see something positive being done by the municipalities, people will  support it; but they are not going to support a situation where the official people with responsibility continue to turn a blind eye, leaving everyone else to pick up the pieces.

felix appeal june 15

Danica, Jasna and Felix shelter have a special place in our hearts. You can use the search box on this site (top right) and just type in ‘Felix’ or ‘Fellix shelter’ to see all the pictures and posts we have given to this wonderful team over the years. Sadly now, things have reached a real crisis, and we call on the municipality to just for once accept its responsibilities and support this shelter with both money and food for the animals; something it has never done in the past, although legally obliged to.

We send Danica and Jasna our love and we know that readers will help and support them in whatever way that they can. They need help now more than ever !!

Subotica City now has a new mayor (one of SNS, Vuchic political party).  His name is Mr. Bogdan Laban and his mayoral e mail address is as follows. mayor@subotica.rs

We hope that people will now e mail the Mayor and remind him of his responsibilities –  see much more about this Criminal Code and the municipalities legal requirements under the Veterinary Law at https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-serbian-animals/

We are not doing a sample letter, in this case it is down to individuals to write – and urgently;

Please crosspost to the moon and back – to all the big major animal welfare groups and organisations who may be able to help.  Don’t leave it; do it NOW. 

Thanks SAV.

Our new blog post has just been published – for giving any donations go to   http://novisadcats.blogspot.rs/

This is an important announcement, please read and spread the word!

Sharing bad news and talking about sensitive, difficult topics is never easy and that’s why I’ve been delaying writing this post for as long as I could, but now I feel it’s high time to just come clean about what’s been happening at the shelter behind the scenes since December of 2014. However, I need to emphasize that back then no one could possibly foresee how the situation would evolve, nor be able to predict the ultimate outcome. Danica suffered a significant stroke that affected the left half of her body and it rendered her immobile and bed ridden at the beginning of December the year before last. As she had always lived alone here with the cats, a couple of us (her helpers and friends) rushed to her aid, not only to help her but also to keep the shelter going. Doctors were optimistic at that point and we all hoped she would be able to recover enough to take care of the kitties again in a few months, albeit with some help and a worker or two.

felix 18 dec3

Unfortunately, that was not the case; she had spent months in two rehabilitation clinics (one of which is the best in Serbia) to no avail – she made very little, if any progress. Last summer she began talking about going to a nursing home where she would have trained professional staff 24/7, as she was still bed bound and relied on assistance with almost all of the activities of daily living. After months of what seemed to be an unending struggle with bureaucracy, she finally went into a nursing home where she has skilled nursing, three meals a day, physical therapy and lifelong care. Since her stroke, let alone her departure, a three digit number of cats and the shelter’s existence itself have been left hanging by a thread in midair. The biggest problem we were facing was that the cats wouldn’t be able to live alone here just being fed and checked on every day, no matter how independent and self sufficient they might appear. Someone needed to step in and move to the shelter in this little village in the middle of nowhere in order to take care of the cats, but Danica had never made any arrangements for them in case anything bad happened to her. Long story short, as I’ve been helping Danica for years, running her website, her blog and some of her social media accounts from a distance of 200 km, guess who was supposed to jump in when something goes seriously wrong?

Our new blog post has just been published – for giving any donations go to   http://novisadcats.blogspot.rs/

So I came here more than a year and a half ago, together with my 13 cats and a pooch (now two of them) but I didn’t come to stay; I really hoped that Danica would recover and I’d be back home by autumn. Wishful thinking… And a huge mistake. Anyway, although I wasn’t exactly eager to keep on living here, I never really had much of a choice – if a private animal shelter closes down, the city council is supposed to find some solution and take over the animals. As the city pound in Subotica has a capacity of 150 animals, and right now only dogs, the Felix kitties wouldn’t have anywhere to go. I couldn’t stand the thought of them being cast back out into the streets to suffer yet again or being put down.

felix 20 Nov

Cat Shelter Felix was registered in 2011 and got a certificate from a veterinary inspection showing that it complies to the new Rulebook of Conditions that animal shelters need to fulfill in 2014, but it doesn’t change a thing. Even though Serbia has a no kill policy, I didn’t even dare to imagine what would’ve happened to the Felix cats had I not arrived at the shelter when I did.

Danica was certainly doing her best to take care of the cats, but with her health declining, things had been spiraling out of control over quite a long time. Only one cat was tested for FIV and FeLV; many cats that were periodically showing symptoms of some mysterious diseases had never had an accurate diagnosis; the house was a total disaster, with leaking ceilings from which chunks of mortar were falling, cracked flooring and old wooden windows that couldn’t seal properly.


There was a huge pile of rubbish behind the garage; the outdoor fence with the posts that had been deteriorating and crumbling for ages was still standing by pure miracle. And last but not least, the future of all of the shelter cats was still rather uncertain as this property didn’t belong to Danica but to a friend of hers who could try and get the cats evicted at any given time. Just great. As always, first things come first – Danica sold her apartment in Novi Sad and bought this 2200 square meter property together with the house of 130 square meters and the cats’ rooms for 15.000 euros, so the cats were finally safe no matter what.


Our new blog post has just been published – for giving any donations go to   http://novisadcats.blogspot.rs/

The roof of the house was repaired last summer, the rotten wooden platforms and boards in the yard were replaced and the new ladders were made. As most of the cats which had been shedding abundantly for months were not able to replenish their fur because of a low quality diet, we began feeding them better food and the change was more than obvious; in just a couple of weeks’ time the kitties’ fur became shiny and smooth. We paid for around thirty trips with a garbage truck filled with trash (old broken wooden beams and boards, rags, worthless pieces of cloth, empty tins, wet cardboard boxes and so on) that went back and forth to a city dumpster.

F3 sept

Around 50 cats have been tested for FIV and FeLV so far and those who are FIV positive – luckily, none of them is FeLV positive – have been receiving interferon regularly since last year. Many of the cats that Danica took into the shelter in 2010 when she moved in are quite old and either chronically ill now or in delicate health; the same applies to Etela’s cats which survived the fire that ravaged her shelter in 2011 and ended up here. Whenever any of them gets sick, the treatment lasts for weeks, the costs are tremendous and despite all of our efforts, they almost never bounce back. Moreover, we’ve taken in at least 20 new cats since last autumn as apparently no one else living nearby was able to help (they wished they could but they had three or four cats already). Although we’ve been fighting numerous battles at the same time for months and accepting new cats was the last thing we needed, we simply couldn’t turn our backs on them, pretend they never existed and leave them to their fate. Someone had to save them and that someone is always hard to find – if not us, then who? This leads me to my next point, our current situation. With Danica out of the picture and only one friend who lives in Subotica and is worth her weight in gold, I’m stuck at the shelter now with more than 140 cats in total and two dogs.


Our new blog post has just been published – for giving any donations go to   http://novisadcats.blogspot.rs/

It should probably be mentioned that I still bear the consequences of a serious auto immune disease I had and therefore walk with crutches, but no one should feel pity for me, I’m fine and totally able to take care of myself, my cats and my dogs.

felix 2 8 nov

What was left of Danica’s money was used for the renovation of two rooms in the house, one of which was refurbished in April and the other is about to be finished soon, the work is still in progress. The entire house was supposed to be renovated when Danica sold her apartment, but most of the money she had received was spent in the meantime on cat food and vet bills for the shelter cats. The sad truth is that our monthly costs are an average of around 2.500 euros, but we haven’t raised not even one third of that sum in ages with all the problems that needed to be solved, so we were using our personal savings and all of our income for as long as we could. Right now we are flat broke, we can’t keep borrowing money from friends and relatives forever (and we’re expected to pay off these debts one day also) so I fear we will soon reach the point of not being able to feed and treat the cats properly if we don’t think of something smart and soon.

We are now applying for various grants for shelter improvements, but without some serious help the shelter will not be able to hold on much longer.

feb 5 felix

If we somehow manage to get the funding we need, we could enlarge the outdoor enclosure for the cats while strengthening the existing chain linked fence (which is a must this summer as it’s barely holding up, after sagging under the weight of snow year after year) and we would get 30 square meters more. We need fencing with finer mesh that could be added to the existing fence which is already enclosing the shelter as it’s become weaker as time’s gone by and the links are too large to prevent little kittens and skinnier adults as well from escaping through the wire. It would still leave us with half of this property empty, as the shelter currently occupies less than one half of it and if we succeed in finding enough sponsors sometime in future, we would be able to build one more outdoor enclosure as big as this one, with at least one large kitty room. Then we’d have enough space to take in dozens of lonely, hopeless and abused strays who would be our temporary residents – we could get them ready for adoption and they would stay with us until finding well screened forever homes.


Our new blog post has just been published – for giving any donations go to   http://novisadcats.blogspot.rs/

That being said, I hope the time will come when we’ll be able to replace the outdoor fence which is already threatening to fall on us. From this point on, we will have to create monthly fundraisers for covering the costs of cat food and vet care for around 130 shelter cats (I’ll continue supporting my own pets, like I’ve done for years). However, I’m honestly not able to cover the ongoing costs of all the shelter kitties, regardless of how much I wish I could, so if and when we fail to raise enough funds, the cats will go hungry and without proper vet care. And if the shelter closes down due to the lack of funding, it will be the end for all of its residents. We are doing everything we can to stay afloat, but we can’t give what we don’t have and we don’t know how to find money where there is none. We’ve fulfilled all of our legal obligations a long time ago, all of the shelter cats are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and the younger ones are microchipped as well, but we have never had any kind of help from the state in the form of Governmental funding to help and improve the conditions for our shelter residents. Felix shelter, like all of the shelters in the world, relies entirely on donations, on good will and the generosity of supporters around the world; if we don’t receive enough support, the shelter will cease to exist in the near future. And if we have to beg, cry and plead for help two times a day, so be it. Thank you to all of you who’ve had enough patience to read this post and a thousand thanks to those who have been diligently supporting our kitties for years now!

USA: Wolf Pups and Turtles. News From CBD.

Two New Litters of Wolf Pups Confirmed in Oregon

Oregon wolves have been gripped by pup fever.

Wildlife officials just released photos confirming that Oregon’s famous wolf “OR-7” — who founded the Rogue pack in the Oregon portion of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest near the Oregon-California border — has fathered his third litter of pups since the pack’s establishment in 2014.

And it just so happens that the Rogue pack’s neighbors in nearby Lake County — a pair known as the Silver Lake wolves — have also produced pups. The female of this pair is known to have dispersed westward from the Mount Emily pack, and the male wolf, OR-3, was born into the Imnaha pack and is OR-7’s brother. This means Oregon’s wolf population has reached the triple digits.

“It’s incredibly exciting that Oregon’s wolves are starting to find their way back to places this remarkable species once called home,” said the Center for Biological Diversity’s Amaroq Weiss. “This tells us how important it is to keep wildlands available for continued safe passage, and to keep legal protections in place for wolves.”

Iowa Moves to Rein in Turtle Trapping

A win for wild turtles: Iowa wildlife officials have proposed to restrict collection and killing of four species of wild turtles: common snapping turtles, painted turtles, spiny softshells and smooth softshells. If finalized the rules would impose seasons, daily bag limits and possession limits for the animals, which are under tremendous pressure from overcollection for the export market to Asia, where they’re killed for food and medicine. More than 3 million wild-caught, live turtles are exported from the United States each year to feed Asian markets.

Right now Iowa allows year-round commercial collection of the four turtle species without any daily bag or possession limits. The proposed regulations protect them during their peak mating season by prohibiting commercial collection prior to July 1. But year-round recreational collection of common snappers is still allowed.

“The new proposals are a welcome step,” said Collette Adkins, a senior attorney at the Center, which in 2009 sought a ban on commercial turtle collecting in the state. “But a complete ban on commercial trapping is needed.”

UK: We Are Not Alone – EU Disliked By Everyone – We Wonder Why ?


Newspaper 31 7_NEW

That’s because they do not even enforce their own legislation

-Regulation 1/2005 on the Protection of Animals During Transport !

bernard van goethem

EoA June 2






Below – Just a few of our past gripes against the EU for NOT enforcing its own Regulation (1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport) when it comes to EU ANIMALS BEING EXPORTED LIVE TO TURKEY:























Of course, England is not alone!
But England was economically powerful and politically stable when it came to “Brexit”.
Therefore, it worked!

Greece voted on 5 July 2015 with almost 62% for a get out of the EU, for a “Grexit”.
What was the result?
A week after the referendum, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras returned demoralized back of a Brussels Summit Marathon, and announced a new three-year bailout program – Including everything, that the Greeks had just rejected by a majority.

Unlike the referendum of the Britten, the “No” of the Greeks was doomed from the start to failure.
Because the government of Athens had other plans and was more corrupt than the British.
Today the unemployment rate in Greece is 52% and the minimum wage 429 euros.
This is the “positive” result for Greece because the country has remained in the EU.
The majority of Greeks dreams of getting a second chance and quit the euro zone.
And get out from the EU at the same time!

People in many countries have this dream today, but unfortunately with dreams alone we achieve nothing.
Neither in politics nor in animal welfare.
I think a “Francexit” would be a very good and powerful blow to the EU.
Because small countries, such as Romania, Ireland, Latvia, Croatia … do not play a significant role for the balance of power in the euro zone.
Those are the cash cows of the EU.
If two great nations, such as Spain or Italy also give a “No -Votum”, that would mean the end of this crime syndicate which call itself EU.
The question is: how do we get to a Referendum?

We cannot make a revolution, and a Turkey-type coup is also not useful!!
We can only start the war against EU by all legal means, which are available to us.
From now on.
By Internet, through demos, by providing information in blogs and web pages.
A war is always associated with risk.
But if you do not risk anything, you have lost in advance.




Bear Update 1/8/16.

Update 1/8/16.


Regarding our recent post –  https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2016/07/30/england-uk-we-now-undertake-new-work-for-bears-and-other-zoo-animals-in-serbia/ 

We have had a very productive day today.  We have been operating for 10+ hours so far.  This morning we had urgent live export work to complete, but the rest of the day has been involving further research regarding bears which are kept within Serbian zoos etc,

We have been in constant contact with our partners at http://www.freecagedbears.com/  and we have been cross checking independent research and also supplying new links and footage to each other.

Slavica in Serbia has been working very hard as part of the team and she has been giving us additional contact links and addresses for the government etc as we need them.  Everything has gone very well today – it has been very productive.

Because of this there has been no time to add any new posts to the site – sorry but we know you will understand our situation.

There are now a few pictures relating to Serbian bears on the site; http://www.freecagedbears.com/#!Belgrade Zoo, Serbia/zoom/c1t1b/i151o4z  but after all our work today things should really increase very soon.

We are looking closely into legislation associated with many of the facilities.  We do not want to give anything away at present, but there are many questions to be asked !





England / UK: We Now Undertake New Work For Bears and Other Zoo Animals In Serbia.

U Flag

30/7/16 – New news.

Today has been a very busy day with regard the Polar bear which is suffering at Belgrade Zoo.  See our post and the video of the suffering bear at:


Well now we have some great news which we can share with you.

We are now starting to work with a UK organisation which campaigns globally for bears – ‘People Advocating for Caged Bears’  –  and here is the link to their website:


As you can see at  http://www.freecagedbears.com/#!caged-bears/c1rb8  the group is working on behalf of bears all over the world.  They have kindly offered their services to establish a section on bears in Serbia; of which our polar bear at Belgrade was the starting point, and we as an organisation will be working with campaigners in the group to expose further the suffering of animals, especially bears, at Serbian zoos.

Between us we can put extra pressure on the Serbian government and Ministry responsible; and we can expose to the whole world when action is not being taken; such as with the Belgrade polar bear

Have we not exposed the situation of the government Ministry not doing its job properly in the past ? – see her just a few of our posts.:







We hope you will find this project a new and exciting one for the zoo animals in Serbia – especially caged bears.

The Serbian government cannot keep hiding behind the bars of the cage all the time.  We will expose them and show them up for the actions that they are not taking for the welfare of their animals.

In addition, we as a combined campaigns group can forward all our information to the EU Enlargement Commission, and remind them that states wishing to join the EU, such as Serbia; do have responsibilities to ensure that they comply with the rules of law – that is Serbian law which is not being enforced for the animals at this present time.

We look forward to our future work with http://www.freecagedbears.com/   which will include input and information from Serbian bear rescue groups such as our friends Branka and Pavel at ‘ARKA’ who we have dealt with in the past:  https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2009/02/19/bosnia-and-herzegovina-arka-banostor-shelter-bears-come-out-of-hibernation-to-give-their-weather-forecast/









Serbia: Pitiful Footage Of A Polar Bear At Belgrade Zoo – And What Will The Serbian Government Do ? – Nothing As Usual.

Serbian Flag

polar bear belgrade


We hope to have some very good news which we will publish very soon regarding bears in Serbia.  Keep your eye on new posts over the next few days.

30/7 – Further update

– a major UK newspaper, the Daily Mirror, has also had a large spread relating to the bear in Belgrade zoo.  Here is the link: 




Update 30/7/16

– the word from Serbian campaigners this morning is –  “this is suffering cosmic proportion, but nonsense authorities do not care….”

The authorities have not cared all the time we have been campaigning for the last 12 years.  They still have their animal abusing ways and do exactly as they want; ignoring the evidence of sterilisations (for cats and dogs on the street) whilst filling their fat bellies and fat pockets with cash that was intended to go to animals.  People call it ‘corruption’.

The Serbian government is running a corrupt system when it comes to ‘animal welfare’ – see all our posts for the last 12 years for very clear proof of this

Does anyone at the EU care ? – NO. 

Do the Serbian authorities care ? – NO – they just get rich on the corruption.  Regional authorities management and subcontractors being paid 450 Euros by the government to kill each and every street dog, when the average monthly salary in Serbia is 300 Euros – some people are living a good life off the corruption of a never ending animal  killing ‘control’ policy, which is against the law, rather than adopting a ‘sterilise and reduce numbers’ policy as put forward by global animal welfare organisations.  But then a gradual reduction in animal numbers would mean less for the authorities to catch and kill – and so would reduce the money being claimed by the authorities which can go into management back pockets !.  So nothing changes; the killings and financial claims to national governments continue to pour in from the regional authorities.

The EU (Enlargement Commission) does not care about animal suffering in Serbia, even though Serbia is now an EU ‘Candidate country’ which should abide bt EU legislation of enforcing the national ‘rules of law’, which does not allow street animals to be killed !!.  

We have provided evidence and photographs to some of the big, international, well paid, well supported animal welfare organisations – and they do not seem to care about the situation either.  The Daily Mail shows the footage in its paper, but it does not care either – hence no action or campaign from it.

Summary – Lots of ‘how terrible is this’ words, but no actual action.  We are a volunteer group and do not have the funding to take this further legally with the Serbian authorities.  Other groups do have the funding but wont do it. 

So things remain as they are – and animals in Serbia suffer.

We can say the truth like this without fear of legal action by the authorities; because they know they are wrong and that their system is illegal and breaking the Serbian Constitutional law – and they would not have a leg to stand on if things ever went to any court – so as a result they do not take action with groups such as us who are trying to save lives.

Want proof ? – then read more at 


Picture 030





We have been sent this footage today (29/7) from a caged bear campaign group.

We have had many serious confrontations with the Daily Mail in the past; especially regarding live animal exports, so they are certainly not one of our favourite UK newspapers – anything but; but we do feel this footage is worth showing.




Under normal conditions, Polar bears are gleaming white; not covered in their own mess, unable to walk; but this once again is proof that the Serbian ministries and government do not give a toss about the welfare of animals in Serbia.

We have campaigned about Serbian zoos for a long time.  Just type ‘Serbian Zoos’  into the Search box at the top right hand corner to get a full listing of all our articles and campaign work.

Sadly, the Serbian government ignores us; the EU ignores us (hence the UK getting out !)and many of the major welfare groups who should be picking up a lot more on what we send them are also ignoring the evidence.  Animals are suffering as a result.

As far as we are concerned now, Serbia is welcome to the EU, and the EU is welcome to Serbia.  Only once it has become a member state will the EU then wonder where it has gone wrong.  But that is its problem.  If it does not act now to help Serbian animals despite all the endless evidence we supply to the EU Enlargement Commission; then what hope for anything ?

Just the way the Serbian Ministries want it – well they are welcome to it, and to the never ending problems that their thick head ignorant attitude will bring.

We have other global animal issues that we want to fight for, so we let Serbian campaigners fight for Serbian animals now.  What exactly will the Serbian Ministry do about this bear at Belgrade zoo ??? – just like the past 12 years probably – NOTHING.



Victory for Gulf of Mexico Sea Turtles!

Victory for Gulf of Mexico Sea Turtles!

  • Joanna McWilliams,Communications Director,joanna@tirn.net

July 28th, 2016

Shrimp Moratorium Remains

Shrimp trawling is one of the primary threats to sea turtle survival in the United States. Every year, the shrimp trawl fishery incidentally captures and drowns thousands of sea turtles, including the critically endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico.

success 2  success 1

Turtle Island asked you to take action and submit comments to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council calling on them to keep in place an existing shrimp fishing permit moratorium to protect sea turtles. The Council agreed with our comments and the today, thanks to your activism, the moratorium remains! This is a major victory and we thank you for helping us achieving this goal.

Green, hawksbill, Kemp’s ridley, leatherback, and loggerhead sea turtles are just some of the unique marine animals that inhabit the same ecosystem used by shrimp trawlers. Commercial fisheries that catch these turtles in pursuit of shrimp and other fish are major contributors to the decline of sea turtle populations and a threat to the future recovery of these endangered species.

turtle 1

The shrimp permit moratorium will ensure that no extra shrimpers are on the water, and reduce the number of sea turtles and other animals killed by shrimp fishery vessels. These animals are important to the ocean ecosystem, and they are also important economically for the Gulf’s tourism industry.

turtle 2

We will continue to push the Council to protect sea turtles by putting in place even stronger standards. This victory is an important step in the right direction for allowing sea turtle populations in the Gulf to rebound and recover.

Find Criminals Who Stuck Puppies to Ground With Hot Tar

Take Action 3

Petition link –  https://animalpetitions.org/133396/justice-for-puppies-found-stuck-to-ground-and-covered-in-tar/?utm_source=Animal+Petitions&utm_campaign=143cd11def-388AP7_26_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_5c8ef52732-143cd11def-79739337


Target: Bogdan Despescu, General Inspector of the Romanian National Police

Goal: Find and severely punish whoever is responsible for covering dogs in hot tar.

Four puppies were found covered in hot tar. The dogs were said to be in critical condition and were taken to a veterinarian for treatment. Images, released through the media, show the poor dogs lying helplessly on the ground as the hot sun beats down on them.

Animal activists believe this is a case of sick animal torture because it is the second time puppies have been found covered in tar. In the first case, the veterinarian said that one of the puppies had tar inside of his nose, mouth, and eyes.

Please add your signature to this petition demanding that the authorities use all resources necessary to find the monster, or monsters, responsible for torturing these puppy dogs and bring them to justice.


Dear Mr. Despescu,

Four puppies were found covered in hot tar and stuck to the ground. This is the second time this has occurred, so it’s clear that some demented individual is going around and senselessly torturing innocent animals.

The evil acts being committed against innocent animals in your area must stop. We demand that you do everything in your power to find whoever is tormenting these dogs and ensure that they receive the most severe penalty possible.

Mark –

Bad news for the Kemp’s ridley.

The common-sense proposal to expand the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is being opposed by both the fishing industry and oil and gas companies.

Sea turtles have been under constant threat in the Gulf of Mexico in recent years. They need a break.

Can you make a tax-deductible donation today so I can fight to expand the sanctuary?

Shouldn’t a small piece of the oceans be set aside for sea turtles, dolphins, and whales?

If we can raise $5,000 by this Friday, I can be a strong voice for the sea turtles.

Slaughterhouse petition

Yes, often it is the question – are you getting the message across ?.  But that is the way you are and you make every effort to promote whatever it is that you believe in. For animals in factory systems it is still the ‘Eternal Treblinka’ – but now with modern day technology we have the freedom to expose the wrongdoings immediately and to ask supporters to act.  That is what we will do – the abusers can hide for only so long !  The suffering that was hidden in the dim and distant past is now being exposed in its full gore – it is now up to people to change it for the better – now, immediately, forever !



Once you’ve transform the 7 billion corpse-eater to vegan,
once you’ve converted all slaughterhouses and farms to botanical gardens,
once you’ve freed all laboratory and fur animals out of their cages,
write us again, and tell us how you did it.

Until then, we will not wait.
We will continue with our small steps, and save every day so many animals that we can save.
We also dream about the day of total liberation, but for the animals the “every-day-Liberation” is more useful than waiting for the Messiah.

Because only by the calendar we are in the 21st century.
For the animals is still the Middle Ages.

But this killing will not stop there ,on August 1st 80 more will be in danger, but inbetween 250 more will face death.

The rescuers cannot keep finding spaces we need action to be taken to stop the killing in Breasta. 50 dogs young and old will die crudely they won’t be euthanasied. The mayor in Mizil has also announced the killing of 45 dogs there.

We need help to get this stopped and a solution worked out. Please helps get this petition to the attention of Paul Brummel the UK Ambassador in Romania who has visited Breasta PS.

Let’s ask him to intervene for the sake of these defenceless dogs.

Goal: Close Baton Rouge Zoo where 21 animals have lost their lives this year alone.

Twenty-one animals died at the Baton Rouge Zoo this past year, the most recent being three monkeys that were attacked by two domestic dogs that broke into the zoo through lax security. The zoo itself is in bad condition, according to visitor Kerregan Layne. “Instead of seeing healthy, happy animals, people go in and see empty exhibits, animals who look depressed, and overgrown sidewalks.”

Mandatory cctv in Scottish slaughterhouses ?? 

And from Martina:

Good news. We met with a representative of grassroots group of SNP (the ruling party in Scotland) and they want to work with us to submit a motion at party conference for govt to support mandatory CCTV

This will go forward in autumn.

It appears our campaigning over past few years and resulting public pressure has caused Scottish Ministers to consider moving their current position of hostility to the idea.

This world does not work according to the principle of justice.

No one gives us the right to keep animals in farms and slaughter them as if they just ware bags of potatoes.
And yet, we do it.

slaughter 3

No one gives us the right torturing to death animals in experiments laboratories because some criminal idiot want to make career and money.
And yet, we do it.


The list of crimes against animals is infinite.
This list gets longer every day, for this 7 billion people on this planet are to blame.
All those who eat meat, wear fur, go to the circus, consume drugs, are “second hand” criminals!

dumb animals fur coat


They participate in a system that consists only of torture, blood, murder.
It is the system of exploitation of the weak, of the powerless, of the animals.

Against this medieval system some Knights of the Renaissance are fighting: These are the animal rights activists, the animal advocates, animal campaigners, animal ethicist..

We all want the elimination of animal suffering.
For all these people even worse than the suffering of animals is the fact, that this system is not easy to eliminate.
And certainly not today or tomorrow.
Therefore, we have learned over the years to make small steps, to focus our fight on important changes and to live with small victories.
We all want the elimination of animal suffering.
But none of us knows, how we can make the abolition of the slaughterhouses, the fur farms, the chemistry laboratories.

We rescue animals at the place where and when it is feasible, we take part in demonstrations against fur farms, we inform the people with letters, mails, roads actions ….
Some courageous liberate animals from laboratories or destroying hunting facilities …
But all, all who have the experience in this field, know that only a miracle can change this suffering and misery.
This experience says also, that we have to fight anyway.
Even if we could save a few animals from the brutal dog meat trade in S. Korea, or some wild animals in Suzhou/China Circus” the fight is worthwhile!

Animal welfare has never worked under the method “all or nothing”.
Because if we want all or nothing, then we end up mostly to nothing!

never giveup

Mr Van Goethem and EU Others – All Talk And No Action – A Real Head In The Sand Situation.

bernard van goethem12715740_976851772397314_8746142858581221756_neu crisis 2

Dear campaigner friends worldwide,

Have we had enough of the European Union (EU) ? – you bet we have.

Here is a reflection to summarise what the EU has done for one of my main welfare / investigation campaigns for (me) the last 26 years – live animal transport / live exports.

This is quite a long post.  It is long because of the continual problems associated with live EU born animals being exported to Turkey – a non EU nation, which slaughters animals without stunning; which is in direct opposition to the standards and regulations of the EU which declare that animals should be stunned before their throats are cut.  Note that even in the EU, many gutless national governments do not even attempt to stop non-stun slaughter in their own nations because they fear religious comeback.  Hence some non stun slaughter is undertaken in Europe; but with most sensible nations; most animals are still stunned prior to their slaughter.  Obviously, EU nations do not have the backbone to say to certain religions ‘you are in Europe now; we stun animals before slaughter and you therefore will do the same’; they run scared and have to allow religions to practice just whatever they want anywhere in the EU, regardless of EU regulations.  Oh does this ring a bell so much !

Our petition against live EU animals being exported to Turkey is still going – you can access and sign at the following if you have not done so already –  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/763/168/053/eu-commissioners-fail-live-animals-transported-to-turkey./?taf_id=22743166&cid=email_na


You can see the disturbing video on the same EU – Turkey exports issue made by  Lesley at ‘yes on Animals’ (NL) by clicking on the following link –


Remember that this evidence has been gathered on the Turkish border for well over 5 years.  Lesley’s disturbing video is a culmination of 5 years of frustration – presenting the clear evidence of abuses to the EU Commissions; who then just sit, bury their heads in the sand, and DO NOTHING.

Clear video evidence has been presented many, many times to the EU ‘officials’, although  we would give them another name; and despite what is clear documented and filmed evidence; the EU HAS DONE NOTHING !

Officials at the EU such as Marco Valetta and Bernard Van Gorthem; the very people who they claim are responsible for ‘animal welfare’ at the EU, and who should be acting in defence of animals, continue to spout their weasel words of improvements and meetings; both of which amount to nothing.


Have a laugh at this:

http://www.politico.eu/article/policing-the-food-chain/     “Policing the food chain –

Bernard Van Goethem on why working for the European Commission is preferable to having his arm up the back end of a cow”.

“Food safety in the broad sense is the responsibility of the vets,” he says. For him and 200 other veterinarians employed by the Commission, that task involves not only ensuring the welfare of animals, starting with the quality of vegetables and grain used in animal feed and controlling pesticide levels and residues, but also monitoring and tracking food in their ‘farm to fork’ approach of standards, controls and checks”.

 bernard van goethem

Ensuring the welfare of EU animals – but maybe not to Turkey eh !

Above – Bernard Van Goethem.

When are you actually going to start ‘ensuring the welfare of animals’ Mr Van Goethem ? – we have clear evidence that you appear to do nothing re EU – Turkey exports.  All talk and no action as usual.

We say again; the EU Commission is utterly useless, and the people who work in animal welfare within it are even lower – they talk the talk but in reality they do very little.  What is more important – a hand up the back end of a cow or working at the EU Commission and having your head buried in the sand ? – ask Mr Van Goethem; he may give you an answer if he pulls his head out.

At the end of this post you will find many of our links which relate to the work we have been undertaking on EU – Turkey live exports.  This will hopefully give you a little insight into the work that we and many others such as Lesley and her crew are doing / have been doing to show how utterly useless the EU Commission and its officials are when it actually comes to their prime responsibility, which is looking after the welfare of animals.  The EU has a Regulation which should be enforced by ALL its member states – it is Regulation 1/2005 on ’the welfare of animals during transport’.  Here is a link to this legislation which you can read in many formats and languages – http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/ALL/?uri=CELEX:32005R0001   – just select ‘your’ language and format you wish to read in.  For example, the English version can be found at ‘EN’; and you can select either PDF or HTML styles.

Below you can read the latest from Lesley.  As she says; “it is the worst it has ever been”.  Where is Van Goethem ? – the man at the EU who has the task of ensuring the welfare of animals ? – little head deep in the sand again no doubt.

It is because of complete and utter incompetents like Van Goethem that the British people have now voted to get out of the EU.  Who wants to sit and listen to crap from people like him all day when they never do anything ? – “ensuring g the welfare of animals” – ask the pregnant ows giving birth on livestock transporters at the Turkish border who exactly is ensuring their welfare !! – Big clue – certainly not van Goethem and all his other Commission sand headers.

Please mail van Goethem and Marco Valetta and tell them both how utterly useless they are in every ones eyes.

Message from Lesley:

Dear donors and friends,

Only a few weeks ago we were at the Turkey/EU border inspecting livestock trucks arriving from all over Europe and heading towards slaughterhouses and farms throughout Turkey. We wish we could tell you that the situation has finally improved at this border crossing but the suffering of the animals was the worst it has ever been. Because the control post in Bulgaria was temporarily closed (there was a disease outbreak in Bulgaria of Lumpy Skin) the animals were on board for longer than ever without being unloaded to receive water and feed and fresh bedding and air. Several cattle on board different trucks collapsed and died from exhaustion, heat stress and dehydration right before our eyes. Five pregnant heifers had no choice but to give birth on board the crowded trucks while waiting at the border. One pregnant cow didn’t survive this stress. The drivers pulled so hard at the dead unborn calf stuck in her that her whole uterus was torn. Here below is a daily account of our efforts at the border.

Meanwhile one of our teams was in Turkey documenting and assisting the animals at the border, another team was in the Netherlands and alerting all the responsible EU and Member State authorities and media about the urgent situation there. We even managed to give a talk to the members of the European Parliament about the problems on this route.

A bit of light at the end of the tunnel: The Netherlands now forbids transport to Turkey in the summer We have a small piece of good news: the Dutch livestock sector has agreed to not export animals to Turkey at least in the months of July and August as of now. This was included in their heat-protocol. Eyes on Animals was involved in the development of this heat protocol, together with the Dutch authorities.

Exposure of this animals cruelty in the media Last Sunday Lesley Moffat, director of Eyes on Animals, was on the popular Sunday-morning Dutch radio program “VroegeVogels” talking about the cruelty to animals sent on this route. Karen Soeters, director of the scientific-research office of the Dutch Political Party for Animals and founder of PiepVandaag was also interviewed. She and her team had joined our team in Turkey for 2 days. Listen to the radio program here.

Additionally, for the past few months, a German journalist has been working on an in-depth TV documentary about the suffering of animals sent on this export route and our efforts. Eyes on Animals and our dear colleagues at AWF|TSB are both interviewed. It should be broadcasted on July 31th on the German TV program “Europamagazin”Read more on their website

You can help! Sadly, in a world where money, it is not easy changing the situation on the ground for animals very quickly. Patience is required but we must not give up! The European Commission, authorities from the exporting Member States and transporters are feeling our pressure and exposure more and more and a time will indeed come when this will stop. PiepVandaag and Eyes on Animals have started a petition against the export of animals to Turkey so that everyone can help take action. Please will you sign this petition today?

Thanks to your donations we were able to be at the EU/Turkey border last week to record and expose the cruelty to animals and on-going violations. Thanks to your donations we were able to be there, where the animals are, to give them water and call for help. We are extremely grateful for your support. Please do continue to support us. The animals need us to be there more than ever!

 As you can see below; we have ben attempting to improve conditions for EU animals transported to Turkey – we hate it and we will fight it:





















UPDATE 22/7/16

We immediately sent the above gripe to Mr Van Goethem – after all he should be made fully aware of his failings and how we view his inactions for EU animals destined for Turkey.  We flagged the message and have had confirmation that it has been read – see below response.

The real question though is will the EU do anything or will they continue to just speak weasel words whilst burying their heads into the sand when it comes to being provided with the real evidence such as the videos.  If Mr Van Goethem says it is the responsibility of member states to enforce the rules; then we have to ask what is the point of having him and the Commission ? – do we need those who pass the responsibility to others ? they should be taking action against rogue states who do not enforce, rather than have yet another ‘meeting’.

Definition of a ‘meeting’ –

Those who individually can do nothing, but who together decide that nothing can be done.

Maybe now; after many years of gathering clear evidence and breaches of the regulations, for which the EU does nothing as a result; campaigners in other parts of the EU will realise that ‘their EU’ is nothing really; just a monolith of people being paid big salaries and who in return really do nothing but throw the problems back at individual states anyway.  Big money for actually doing very little.

The UK has voted (much to the disgust of the EU elite !) to get out or Europe; away from all these do nothings; and we hope that now people of the Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark etc will actually see the real light that the EU is failing them all big time; such as this very typical example.  Already the UK is getting big talks going from other places around the world re new trade deals etc.  The EU is prehistoric monolith – all talk and no real action.

If you are paid members of a club, this is where you need the management of a club to act when members break the rules.  This is where the EU fails – they don’t act and prosecute individual member states who do not enforce the rules – 1/2005 on the welfare of animals in transport, for example.

We call it the EU Commission – what about you !

After being tied up, the animals are callously tossed into a bullfighting ring before being chased and stampeded by the bulls. …………………………………………



Circus Animals Need Your Help NOW !


Further updated 19/7.  New text and pictures added.




Recently, a PETA Asia eyewitness visited 10 different circus and animal-training facilities in China and documented heartbreaking conditions for animals kept as slaves in the entertainment industry. These are their faces:


Bear cubs were also tied to a hook in the ground by a short rope, making it impossible to move more than a few inches in any direction.



When not being forced to perform, big cats were confined to small cages with little space to move around in. Many were forced to wear chains around their necks.


Chinese-Circus monkey

Monkeys were kept in and chained to small, barren cages, in which they thrashed around and paced back and forth, showing signs of intense distress. They had no choice but to eat, drink, sleep, defecate, and urinate all in one small area.



This senior dog, named Laifu by the eyewitness and too old to perform, was forced to live in this cage 24 hours a day and never let out.

You’ve heard their stories. Now what will you do to stop this?



Throughout China, circuses, traveling shows, and roadside zoos force animals—including bears, monkeys, tigers, lions, dogs, and others—to perform for the public.

A PETA Asia investigator visited 10 different circuses and animal training facilities in the city of Suzhou, which alone encompasses more than 300 circuses, and documented animal abuse and suffering on a massive scale. PETA Asia’s investigator documented that bear cubs are chained or tethered to a wall and forced to stand on their hind legs, sometimes for hours. If they can’t hold themselves up, they risk choking and hanging themselves.

.Bear cubs were chained to a brick wall and forced to stand upright, putting them at risk of choking or hanging.

Any circus that uses animals inevitably subjects them to terrifying and cruel training methods as well as barren, cramped living conditions. U.S.-based circuses like Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, UniverSoul Circus, Jordan World Circus, and others continue to exploit animals. Training sessions take place behind closed doors and are not regulated by a protective entity. Jordan World Circus—one of the largest producers of Shrine Circuses in the country—even uses bears, just like the Chinese circuses that PETA Asia investigated.

NL: Police Training In Poland Reveals Poultry Transporter Abusing EU Regulation 1/20005 (As Usual !).


20.04.2016_PL_poultry truck in violation from NL stopped during our police trainings in Poland (1)

Dear EU and MS authorities, official highway inspectors and police, transporters and NGO colleagues,

During one of our practical training courses for road inspectors in Poland, a livestock truck was stopped. There were several violations to the EC 1/2005. It concerned a poultry truck from the Polish company Lech Drob (they own trucks and a slaughterhouse in northern Poland). The birds on board had been loaded on a farm in the Netherlands. Many of the birds that we could see in the outer rows were dead. The birds were seriously overcrowded (17 per crate instead of the 14 max) and the so-called ” water-system”  was leaking.

Please find here a short vidoe of some footage taken of the birds.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-cxGwY7S_o
And attached is our report.

The Polish authorities that participated in this training are inquiring further and applying sanctions where necessary to the Polish transporter and we have asked the Dutch authorities to look into the Dutch keeper of the birds (farmer) and catching crew in the Netherlands responsible for the horrible overcrowding.

We do not expect you to do anything, it is just for your information.

With best wishes, on behalf of Eyes on Animals and TSB|AWF

England: Introducing ‘Medical Detection Dogs’ – Using A Dogs Natural Abilities To Detect Early Health Problems In Human Beings.


This is not an area that we usually go into; but having a leaflet on the subject arrive today with the post, we found that it was something worth informing people about; a UK charity which has been established and which uses a dogs natural abilities and specialities to detect early health problems (such as cancer) in human beings..

In their own words:

About Medical Detection Dogs

Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease. It is at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and helping people with life-threatening diseases.

Our bio detection dogs are trained to find the odour of diseases, such as cancer, in samples such as urine, breath and swabs. Our Medical Alert Assistance dogs are trained to detect minute changes in an individual’s personal odour triggered by their disease* and alert them to an impending medical event. We receive no Government funding for the work we do and rely entirely on the generosity of donations from trusts and the public.

Please visit their website and also learn more about their work and also their animal welfare policy at:


No animal abuse and testing, but using well trained dogs to use their natural specialities (and noses) to detect illness and disease in humans well before ‘normal’ medicine often can.  To us this is a win-win all round.


England / Netherlands: Gripes About Live Animal Transport – And An Excellent New Video Sent By Lesley.


As many of you will be aware, live animal transport is still probably our greatest campaign – you can read a bit more about our history in this field at ‘About Us’ – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-us/  and which shows that live animal transport investigations were being undertaken at least 15 years before SAV was even founded !

The EU has a lot of legislation supposedly to protect the welfare of animals in transport.  The main regulation is 1/2005 – which SHOULD be enforced by all member states of the EU. 

Here is a link to the regulation (1/2005) to show just how detailed things should be; and which we have to know fully when undertaking animal transport investigation work.


http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/ALL/?uri=CELEX:32005R0001  – you can select language and style of presentation using this link.


We have recently shown that the EU fails miserably to enforce regulations which should protect animals in transport.  Here are links to just a few of our recent posts which show where the EU is failing the animals:








Our good friend Lesley at ‘Eyes on Animals’ in the Netherlands has produced an excellent and very detailed presentation video relating to Regulation 1/2005 and how the EU is failing animals by not enforcing the legislation.

Here below you can read Lesley’s into to the video, and then have a look for yourself.

As we have said, the Regulation is very detailed and this is borne out by the length of this video.  Over the years we have made contact with the EU very many times relating to live animal transport.  The importance of access to livestock being carried is one of the most important factors when carrying live animals.

This is summarised by a report produced by Lesley on the importance of access during transport – you can read it via this link:  https://serbiananimalsvoice.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/downloads_eyes_on_animals_report_importance_of_access.pdf

Dear EU and Member State authorities, highway police, livestock-transport companies and livestock-truck manufacturers and fellow colleagues of animal-welfare NGOs,

During our inspections of livestock-trucks we are often confronted with vehicles that have received a Certificate of Approval of Means of Transport by Road of Live Animals but that in reality are not appropriate. Sometimes the water system on board is not the correct design for the specie and age of the animals on board and yet this limitation is not indicated on the Certificate.  For example, we continue to see adult cattle transport in livestock trucks with only metal nipples.  Cattle needs large and deep troughs in the corners. This may seem like a small mistake, but as the Certificate is valid for 5 years, it results in many cattle suffering from thirst during transport and some even dying.

We also continue to see partitions that are poorly designed and cause animal injuries, such as when they are not solid to the ground. In the gap we find sheep, calves, adult cattle trapped underneath and as a consequence many become trampled to death. It is a horrible sight to see.

The good news is that these problems can easily be solved if the livestock trucks are correctly checked before handing out the certificate of approval. Design adjustments can be made on time, or limitations can be indicated in the Certificate of Approval, before live animals are loaded!

For this reason Eyes on Animals was invited by the Dutch authorities at the NVWA to give a presentation  on this topic a few months ago.  We gave this “course” together with our colleagues from TSB|AWF and it was a successful and also positive day.

I am writing to you now because Dr. Tea Dronjic and I have now made a video of this educational course so that everyone can watch it via youtube.

Please take a look and feel free to pass it on to any colleagues that could also benefit from watching it:

Watch the new video here:


Should you have any questions, or should you wish to have us come in person to also give a live presentation to you and colleagues, do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

UK: David Cameron Quits As Prime Minister – And Animals Across The UK Celebrate !!

U Flag


cameron what will they do

You Did Lose – You Are No Longer Prime Minister !


The Prime Minister David Cameron is handing over to Home Secretary Theresa May – who was sat alongside him on the front bench during the half hour session – after announcing his resignation on 24 June, the day after Britain voted to quit the EU.

Mr Cameron told MPs he had clocked up 5,500 questions during his six years as prime minister, joking that he would leave it to others to decide how many he has answered.

We in animal welfare do not really have many good things to say about Mr Cameron at all.  He is a hunter; wanted to overturn the hunting ban introduced in the UK over ten years ago; he is behind all the killing (culling) of badgers in several counties in the UK – the badger being a ‘protected species’ under UK law; unless you are the government that is, then you can kill them at your leisure !!

Despite many promises, including written ones from our very own Member of Parliament, there has never been any action to ban the use of animals in UK circuses; despite a public consultation over 10 years ago which saw more than 85% of the British public at the time calling for an immediate ban on the use of animals in circuses.

To cut a long story short, David Cameron has been no friend to the animals.  We welcome his demise today (13/7/16) when he visits her majesty the queen to officially declare his resignation.  He will be replaced by Theresa May, the current Home Secretary; who will become the new Prime Minister.  We do not currently have much information on her and her views, but we hope that she will be better for the welfare of animals in the UK.

USA: MFA Get Cruelty Conviction – Congratulations ! – and ‘Meat Is Horrible’ – The Washington Post.



Cruelty Conviction

A Foster Farms slaughterhouse employee caught torturing chickens has been convicted of criminal animal cruelty. The conviction stems from a recent Mercy For Animals hidden-camera investigation.

by Lina CohenJuly 6, 2016

Yesterday, Gabriel Cevallos, a Foster Farms employee, was convicted for criminal animal abuse after being caught on hidden camera ripping out fistfuls of feathers from live birds, repeatedly hitting a bird with a severed chicken leg, and tossing live birds around like basketballs. Cevallos pled no contest to one count of criminal animal cruelty. His conviction stems from a 2015 Mercy For Animals undercover investigation at a Foster Farms chicken slaughterhouse in Fresno, California, which revealed birds scalded alive and several Foster Farms employees punching, throwing, and slamming birds.

Cevallos was sentenced by the Fresno County Superior Court to three years of probation and a fine of $600, and is required to attend 12 sessions of mental health counseling.

Here is the footage that led to the conviction:


Although animal abuse is pervasive in Foster Farms’ poultry supply chain, American Humane Association has certified Foster Farms—one of the largest poultry producers in the country—as “humane.” AHA’s standards, which cover more than 1 billion animals, are far less stringent than those of virtually every other humane certification program. In fact, AHA standards barely exceed the minimal standards set by the factory farming industry itself. In other words, these standards are essentially meaningless.

MFA is calling on Foster Farms and AHA to stop misleading the public and implement meaningful animal welfare requirements, including replacing live-shackle slaughter methods with less cruel systems that eliminate the appalling suffering caused by dumping, shackling, shocking, and slitting the throats of conscious animals. Additionally, birds should be provided with more space, clean litter, access to adequate light, and environmental enrichments. Video monitoring systems that live stream to the internet should also be installed to deter future violence against animals.

Last week, Perdue Foods, one of the nation’s largest poultry producers, announced a precedent-setting animal welfare policy. MFA is calling on AHA and Foster Farms to stop paying lip service to animal welfare and do the same.

Convictions send an important message that animal cruelty will not be tolerated. The best way to protect animals, however, is not to eat them. Visit ChooseVeg.com to get started with some tips and recipes.


Washington Post – Meat Is Horrible

by Joe LoriaJuly 5, 2016

“Meat is horrible,” a new article in The Washington Post, highlights the negative impacts of a Western diet.

Author Rachel Premack discusses the environmental, ecological, and health reasons Americans must give up or cut back on meat. Featuring multiple graphs, her compelling argument destroys common myths and seems to support a meat tax.

Premack writes:

By 2050, scientists forecast that emissions from agriculture alone will account for how much carbon dioxide the world can use to avoid catastrophic global warming. It already accounts for one-third of emissions today — and half of that comes from livestock.

She also notes that it takes “48 times as many liters of water to produce the same amount of beef as veggies” and we could save “a collective $730 billion in health care by reducing meat consumption.”

The debate over climate change and animal agriculture’s role in it is over. We know how raising animals for food damages our planet, and it’s time world leaders took action.

In the meantime, you can help protect the planet, your health, and animals by switching to a plant-based diet.

Thailand: Tell Travel Companies To Stop Abusing Elephants.



It’s common for elephants used in the tourism industry to be separated from their mothers as babies, tied down with ropes, beaten mercilessly, and gouged with sharp weapons.

These intelligent, complex, sensitive animals are forced to spend their entire lives shackled in chains and give rides to people, even in extreme heat.

Travel companies Classic Journeys, Goway Travel, and SITA World Tours know this, but they still offer elephant rides as part of some of their tours.

Tell these travel companies to stop promoting cruelty!

Baby Elephants Beaten for Tourists

Posted by  Michelle Feinberg

When people go to Thailand and ride on an elephant, most of them have no idea that elephants are often separated from their mothers when they’re babies, tied down with ropes, beaten mercilessly, and gouged with sharp weapons. If they knew, they probably wouldn’t do it.

But travel companies Classic Journeys, Goway Travel, and SITA World Tours can’t say that they didn’t know, because PETA told them about the industry-standard abuse, but they still offer elephant rides as part of their tours.

Life for these elephants is hell: Trainers at some camps wave flaming sticks in baby elephants’ faces, just to terrify them. The animals are often deprived of food and water during training, which can last for days and leave them injured and traumatized. Some don’t even survive.

The survivors will spend the rest of their lives like slaves, chained up and forced to carry tourists on their backs through sweltering heat and exhaustion, all while being jabbed and pulled with weapons such as bullhooks or other sharp objects.

If this makes you mad, think about how the elephants feel—then you might be able to understand why they sometimes lash out. Earlier this year, a man vacationing in Thailand was gored to death in front of his daughter. In March, captive elephants killed at least four trainers in Thailand alone. Plus, elephants throughout Asia are known to carry tuberculosis, a deadly disease that can be spread between elephants and humans.

Riding elephants hurts animals and humans, and there’s no reason for it. Animals are not ours to capture, beat, enslave, and ride.

The largest swath of protected ocean ever (!) could be created in weeks, simply with President Obama’s signature.

But Hawai’i’s powerful fishing lobby is ferocious and is working hard to stop the deal from closing and without a wave of voices supporting the dolphins, sharks, turtles, and more who depend on this sea, everything could be lost.  

Insiders say that Obama wants to hear from the international community, knowing that protecting the ocean is a global task, and a failure not only threatens the majestic creatures in the sea, it threatens all of our survival. Add your name to the petition below with just one click to show him we’re all in this together — when enough people have signed we’ll deliver our voices directly to the White House and to the local leaders in Hawai’i who need our support:


To President Obama, Hawai’i Governor Ige, and Senators Hirono and Schatz:
“To secure the future of our planet, we need to protect the beautiful biodiversity that sustains it. The proposed marine national monument at Papahānaumokuākea is an opportunity for your government and the world to take the kind of dramatic steps we need. As concerned citizens with a stake in our seas, we call on you to make Papahānaumokuākea the largest protected space in the world, one with the maximum possible boundaries, a place we can look to for hope and inspiration.”



To save our oceans, experts say we need to set aside as much as 30% in protected areas as soon as possible. This reserve — in a sacred place Hawaiʻians call Papahānaumokuākea and that some see as the source of humans’ connection with the holy — would be a huge step in that direction, protecting 1.6 million square kilometers of ocean habitat home to over 7,000 species. A quarter of these can’t be found anywhere else on the planet — it’s a stunning piece of our precious biodiversity that we can’t afford to lose.

But Papahānaumokuākea is also unique because experts say it’s an exceptional ‘climate refuge’. As our oceans heat up, marine life is traveling to cooler waters — and this reserve is big enough and placed perfectly to span both tropical and more temperate ocean. That means it could maintain coral reef — and the critical biodiversity it sustains — in a way that most other places on Earth won’t be able to.

President Obama — who is from Hawaiʻi, a local hero — has overseen the creation of several critical protected areas, but this could be a new crowning achievement — one that he could announce at home in Hawaiʻi at a major conference in September.

We’ve fought for and won protected areas around the world, including off the coast of Hawaiʻi just two years ago — where we beat these very same lobbyists. Let’s show everyone from the locals behind the project to Obama himself that the world is 100% behind this plan. Add your name to the petition now with just one click, and protect Papahānaumokuākea:


The fishing industry doesn’t have a leg to stand on in the debate. They want to be able to keep fishing big-eye tuna in the area — but they’ve already fished out 86% of the world’s stock of the species. And not only that, they only get about 5% of their catch from within these waters, and would be free to keep fishing elsewhere. But they’re powerful lobbyists and they’re making their case heard — let’s make sure we drown them out!

With hope,

 Dear Mark ,

PETA has pulled back the curtain on rampant abuse on factory farms and in slaughterhouses for the chicken meat and egg industries many times over the years. Every time, people wake up and changes are made, sometimes even by the companies involved.

This time, a PETA exposé of a massive hatchery operated by Sanderson Farms, Inc., which supplies chicken to Kroger, Sysco, Arby’s, Chili’s, and others, has provided shocking footage of unwanted chicks there born alone and left to languish before finally being ground up alive.

When chicks hatched later than expected, including this one named Jessie by the eyewitness, they were left alone for hours, deprived of warmth, before finally dying or being killed.

USA: News From ‘Project Coyote’ – Coyote Gunned Down In LA.

The news was shocking – a coyote in Los Angeles, gunned down by a sniper on a residential street. As reported on July 1st in the Los Angeles Times, the gunman shot the coyote in the city’s Silver Lake neighborhood, in what the Times called an act of “coyotecide.” 

As Los Angeles’s Animal Cruelty Task Force looks into the shooting, and the Department of Animal Services investigates, Project Coyote is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s) responsible.

Our reward offer is helping to generate news coverage about this act of barbarity, while exposing the stark reality that coyotes are the target of so much hatred and violence and have no protections as afforded their domestic cousins. 

Had the killer shot a domestic dog, it would be considered a felony under state anti-cruelty laws. 

Ironically, just last week Project Coyote’s Southern California Representative, Randi Feilich testified before the Los Angeles City Animal Welfare Committee in support of a proposed non-lethal coyote management plan being considered by the Committee. The plan emphasizes public education and coexistence. At the meeting, Feilich offered the support of our Coyote Friendly Communities program, which provides tools and expertise to peacefully live with coyotes and other wildlife. 

Since the shooting, media coverage has increased public awarness of the cruelty suffered by coyotes and other wildlife, as well as the threat this poses to human safety.  

Please help us prevent such senseless acts and help us change laws so that coyotes are no longer treated as vermin that can be killed in unlimited numbers. 

With your support we can continue to equip communities across the country with the information, support and tools they need to live peacefully with wild animals who also call this planet home.

With gratitude,

Camilla H. Fox
Founder & Executive Director
