67 000 pigs without daylight, fresh air, straw ENG/DEU

 

Target:  Prime Minister of Brandenburg, Germany Matthias Platzeck

Sponsored by:  Susanne Max, Prague, nokilling.nu-masters.net

 

ENG: A dutch investor is planning to reactivate a former communistic factory farm for up to 67 000 pigs without daylight, fresh air nor straw in Hassleben, East-Germany. We ask the Federal State Environmental office of Brandenburg to reject Mr van Gennip’s application for such gigantic “farm” does not comply with European directives for the protection of pigs and it is against the dignity of animals. We appeal to your ethical and judicial judgment: Save the life of thousands of pigs. Do not suffer animals in such inhumane industrial conditions which also have an negative ecological impact to the environment due to well known pollution of factory farming.

DEU: Ein holländischer Investor plant im brandenburgischen Hassleben eine ehemalige DDR-Schweinezucht und -mast mit bis zu 67 000 internierten Tieren zu reaktivieren: Ohne Tageslicht, Frischluft oder Stroh. Wir möchten erwirken, dass das Landesumweltamt Brandenburg den Antrag von Herrn van Gennip ablehnt, da die Tierfabrik Europäisches Recht und vor allem die Würde des Tieres verletzt.Wir appellieren an Ihr ethisches und rechtliches Urteilsvermögen: Geben Sie dem Leben der Schweine eine Chance. Lassen Sie nicht zu, dass in Hassleben tausende Tiere in unwürdigen Verhältnissen gehalten werden und dort die Umwelt mit den bekannten Auswirkungen der Schweineintensivhaltung ruiniert wird.

*** DESPERATE NEWS:
WE HAVE A CHANCE TO MOVE OUR TWO LAST LIONS ***

 

 
Romany and Gypsy, five-year-old male and female disabled lions, have
lived in the confines of Buhusi Zoo for most of their lives. We have
been offered the chance to move them to a sanctuary in Holland.

They must be moved before December 31 or they will be euthanized.
Euthanization in Romania is brutal.
 
In the last month and half with increased medicine, more care, and
better food, we have watched these two loving creatures improve.

They are not without some pain, but they are vastly capable of living a
good life. They are, we feel, a symbol of love and kindness. We would
like to see them have a better chance. And we want to let children
know that they are worth saving. Having a disability is not a cause of
hiding them or killing them.
 
We need to raise 6000 euro for their medical care and transport.
donations can be made through out website www.thelionsroar. eu (a
European link will soon be posted to allow donations in euros)

THE INCREASINGLY SAD STORY OF TWO REMAINING DINGOES
 
A male and female dingo living together in one cage will be moved to
Ploisti Zoo in Romania on Dec. 15th. We NEED to find homes for the two
remaing dingoes. One female lives in the adjoining cage and another
female, who was badly wounded (and now recovered),lives in another
awful concrete cage on the other side of the nearly empty zoo. They
need seperate enclosures.

 

We want to raise $2000 US (in addition to what we have raised) to
encourage a zoo to take them with our building them proper enclosures.
they too must be moved by December 31 or face a horrible death.

If you enjoyed the first video, you will love this. It contains more

scenes of Christian and his rescuers. It also shows his pride and

has pic’s of Christian fully matured, with a full mane. Beautiful! Enjoy!

In the next video, Christian’s rescuers talk about Christian and their reunion. How Christian’s two wives were jealous of them, didn’t really like them and how Christian protected his friends.

BTW: some people have asked me if Christian was still alive. Sadly, no, he passed a number of years ago. Lions live 12 to 15 years.

============ ========= ========= ========= =========

Honorable Officials of the Republic of Korea:This draft law undoes humane policies established in 1991. In fact, it allows any animal abuser to bypass punishment by simply claiming the abused dog or cat was intended for meat or medicine. Thailand and the Philippines have banned dog meat. Most Koreans do not consume dogs and cats. Why does Korea continue to sacrifice its integrity and global image to appease a minority interest?

 

THE HYPOCRISY OF SAVING DOGS WHILE EATING PIGS?
============ ========= ========= ========= =========

Kinship Circle recognizes that some feel it’s hypocritical to protest the consumptive use of dogs and cats while other sentient creatures live in wretched conditions and die horribly under the knife.

============ ========= ========= ========= =========

I respectfully ask the Korean government to not amend the Animal Protection Law of 1991 to classify some dog breeds as livestock and others as companions.

The distinction between “pet animals” and food-source animals merely allows the consumptive use of certain dogs and cats. Those bred as family companions are protected, while other dogs and cats — if purposefully raised for food or medicine — are not.

This law turns a blind eye on the cruelty inherent in the dog/cat consumption trade: Prolonged beatings, dismemberment, hangings, live boiling, and more brutal “customs” thought to enhance flavor and potency.

Moreover, if Korea enacts this amendment, it becomes the only nation to openly permit the slaughter of dogs and cats for human ingestion. I urge Korean officials to cease all efforts to legalize this vile trade. Taiwan,

Please enforce animal protection laws that afford ALL dogs and cats immunity under “pet animals.” Please explicitly outlaw the killing of any of these animals for food or medicine.

Thank you,

============ ========= ========= ========= =========

Please note that we regularly posts action campaigns on animals typically farmed for food, with an entire section of our Letter Library devoted to animal agriculture:
http://www.kinshipc ircle.org/ letter_library/ letters_by_ category. asp?CategoryID= 5
We have addressed the “hypocrisy” in an article that ran as The Animals Voice cover story:

 One Country’s Companion Is Another’s Cuisine
http://www.kinshipc ircle.org/ columns_articles /companion_ cuisine.htmlWe do not support the consumptive use of ANY animal, including dogs, cats, horses, chickens, pigs, cows, fishes, turkeys, ducks, etc.
