Europe: BAN THE CRUEL SEAL TRADE – YOUR URGENT ACTION REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY

eu-aw-logo5
BAN THE CRUEL SEAL TRADE
TAKE ACTION NOW!

Tell your MEP to vote for a total ban on trade in seal products

Dear …,

I am writing because I urgently need your help.

This Spring, the European Parliament will vote on a historic
proposal to ban EU trade in seal products — a ban that would
save millions of seals from cruel commercial slaughter.

On 2nd March, the Internal Markets and Consumer Protection
Committee (IMCO) of the Parliament will decide what amendments
should be made to the ban proposal. This vote is critical: what
IMCO decides next Monday will determine what the entire
Parliament will vote on from now.

Contact your MEPs and ask them to vote to save seals.

The issue should be clear cut for IMCO. After all, a record 425
MEPs have called for a strong ban on seal product trade
. But
some members of IMCO are seeking to undermine the proposal, and
have put forward amendments that would reduce the ban to a
toothless labeling scheme — which would allow the cruel seal
product trade to continue.

Your MEPs sit on IMCO

, and in the lead up to the Parliamentary
elections, your voice counts more than ever. Please let your
MEPs know that you support an unconditional prohibition on seal
product trade, and that you will not accept anything less.
 

 

In just a few weeks time, Canada’s commercial seal slaughter
will begin. The European Union holds the power to save the seals
and stop this cruelty forever.

Please demand that your MEPs take a stand for the seals and vote
in favour of the amendments put forward by Arlene McCarthy MEP
(Chair of the IMCO Committee) which support an unconditional
prohibition on seal product trade.
 

 

With kind regards,

Rebecca Aldworth
Director
Humane Society International/Canada

Serbia: Animal Welfare Campaigners Make Formal Charge to State Public Attorney-General About CITES Documentation for Gypsy ‘Owned’ Bears Exported to Bulgaria

serb00013

 

This post is about a formal charge to the Public Attorney General of the State of Serbia, Belgrade, and also to the Ministerium of police of the State of Serbia, Belgrade.

 

These are part of proof  for  wild animals; Bears, and their export  from Serbia to Bulgaria.

 

Gypsies have been paid 1000 to 1500 Euros per bear.

 

The main question and issue is;

 

In order to get a CITES permit for export for an animal, it is only the owner of the animal that can do the application.  But in this case, the Gypsies who have the bears are NOT their legal owners.  We think that false claims and false information may have been provided to the Ministerium for Environment, Department  for CITES, in this case of Serbian bears exported to Bulgaria.

 

In order to be the ‘owner’ of these bears, the State of Serbia must have Court documentation, but they do not, and neither do the Gypsies who have been given money for them.

 

The ‘owner’ of  the 3 bears in this case is unknown, if there is even such a thing as an ‘owner’.  Bears are wild animals, part of the states natural environment.

 

Bears who do not have a formal registered owner cannot be exported, because the owner must put their own signature onto the CITES documentation.   In this case there are unknown owners.

 

The Ministry does not appear to care about the six bears at the ARKA Banostor shelter, but in this case of money and export, things appear to be a little ‘different’.

 

What has happened and who has been directly involved in order to obtain signatures on the CITES certificates to allow these bears to go to Bulgaria ?

 

Remember, Gypsies have been paid 1000 to 1500 Euros per bear.  Has anyone else had a share of this money to ensure that the CITES paperwork looks correct with all the necessary signatures by the ‘owner’ ?

 

Below are the formal copies of the charges made by Serbian animal welfare campaigners to the Public Attorney General of the State of Serbia, Belgrade, and also to the Ministerium of police of the State of Serbia, Belgrade.

Republičko javno tužilaštvo, Beograd   –   molimo vs da službenim putem prosledite mesno nadležnom javnom tužilaštvu ovaj dokazni materijal 25.2.2009.

 

Veza : predmet u Rep.javnom tuž. pod brojem ktr 1279/08

, u ojt Požarevac pod ktr 510/08 ,

nemamo podatke  u kojem  se još  tužilaštvu vodi i pod kojim brojem  isti  predmet koji se odnosi  na  dva medveda iz Kruševca

 

KUPO-PRODAJNI UGOVORI

 

Ugovori o kupovini-prodaji  medveda

 

U attachmentu Vam saljemo dva razlicita ugovora koji su sklopljeni izmedju Austrijske organizacije “Vier Pfoten” i nelegalnih vlasnika medveda – gospodina Zorana Lazarevica i gospodje Zorice Lazarevic. Na osnovu ovih ugovora je Vier Pfoten uspeo da dobije protivzakonitu CITES export dozvolu od Ministarstva zivotne sredine i prostornog planiranja, za odnosenje tri mrka medveda iz Srbije u Bugarsku ( u naucne svrhe).

Umesto ovih , tužilaštvu su dostavljeni  naknadno  pravljeni lažni Ugovori,  kojima se želi zataškati činjenica o  prodaji-kupovini , trgovini,  no kako u tom  naknadno  napravljenim ugovorima  strana koja  predaje  medveda ne dobija nista , nelogicno je da  ta fizicka lica koja su medveda koristila za sticanje prihoda i egzistenciju cele porodice   , sada   nekome  ustupaju  istog medveda ,bez bilo kakve koristi za sebe , a da pri tom  faktički nisu u  poziciji da besplatno poklanjaju svoj izvor prihoda .Stoga je logičan i realan svaki od ugovora kojim su u zamenu za medveda  lica koja su medveda predala- dobila po 1000  i 1500 eura- što  prestavlja   protivzakonitu trgovinu, a koje vam ( jedan smo vam  već ponovo dostavili) dostavljamo sada ponovo , jer  su se  izgleda , ovi ugovori pogubili iz košuljice predmeta –  barem  nije prisutan u  košuljici ktr 510/08  koja nam je u celosti dostavljena .

Romania: Stray Dogs – Please Vote in newspaper Poll and Also Leave Comments

rmna00012

Dear Animal Friends

 

here is a poll on the best solution for the street dogs – 

*** your comments are more important than votes ***

 

http://www.obiectivbr.ro/component/poll/21-care-credeti-ca-este-cea-mai-buna-solutie-pentru-rezolvarea-problemei-ciinilor-comunitari.html

 

You can help us with comments, in the support of spay/neuter & release policy – the only method that can help reducing the street dog population.

 

The poll has 3 options:

 

1  euthanasia (which is banned in Romania since Jan 2008, but the newspaper is known for its anti-animals, anti-dogs attitude)

 

2  spay/neuter and release on streets

 

3  impounding – dog pounds in Romania are equal to sentencing the animals to death by starving, misery. It’s a waste of public money, while the uncontrolled breeding of yard dogs and pets and dog abandonment is the unstoppable source of the street dogs.

 

Vital:  Please cast your vote for the MIDDLE selection – “Sterilizarea si eliberarea pe strazi”

 

Then click on the box marked “VOT”

 

Example: dogs canibalization in the dogpound of NGO Horez (the dogcatchers are a NGO for ‘animal protection’) paid by city hall of Braila

Other dogpounds here, showing the maltreatment of dogs in the  Romanian public dogpounds, paid from taxpayers money:

Even if the law for animal protection bans the euthanasia in Romania now, dog culling and killing is the only measure used by most of Romanian cities to ‘eliminate’ the street dog population – officially, all will deny it. Street dog poisoning with carbofuran, antifreeze are still in use. Unofficially, even the sanitary veterinarian employees say: who could infirm the dogs in the public dogpounds died from incurable diseases and old age?

 The exceptions are a few: Bucharest, Ploiesti (recently), Hunedoara, Oradea, and other small towns, which relies on spay-neuter projects run by animal organizations. The public money are used to kill & maltreat the animals, even if this is illegal.

To add comments you only need to click on : ‘adauga comentarii’, then leave a name and e-mail address – no further confirmations necessary.

 

Worth adding that  mayor of Braila is very proud of his daughter, studying abroad, in Germany, winning a scholarship in the US, for NASA.

 

While his views and attitude toward dog lovers, citizens with equal rights, date back in the medieval or soviet age, rejecting the dialogue with citizens and co-operation with Vier-Pfoten, Romania Animal Rescue, FRPCA and all animal organizations. The mayor broke his word and even the dogs spayed by animal organizations are culled by dogcatchers.

 

Thank you
