CROATIA : Mass Poisoning of Dogs/Cats in Plocha City by Public Firm

croatia

Subject: CROATIA : mass poisoning dogs/cats in Plocha city -SCENARIO by public firm for garbage collection who make place for their business.

 

http://www.slobodnadalmacija.hr/Dubrovnik/tabid/75/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/41129/Default.aspx

 

Dear all,

 

Not one word about punishment of irresponsible owners – just fear for their own children, it is very clear who made this scenario.

 

This is typical Balkans  way for control of number of dogs/cats population.

 

This is shame for Croatia and whole Balkans  –  and they want be part of EU .

 

“Somebody ” has bought a big quantity of  very strong poison and thrown it all over the city – what You mean  who could be  this Lucretia Borgia -we  believe  that was, as always, workers of Public  firm  for garbage collection  – shinters team, the same like in Serbia, Bosnia  and  in whole Balkans.

 

In this case they want this job and public money for themselves and  not for shinter`s team of Split city. That was just competition around good payed  ” job”  between  shinters team of Split and shinters team of Ploche.  And it is NOT true that this analysis about what like poison was used is so expansive – the price is only up to 10 Euros, but they said to the public that it is much more, because they – the authorities of Ploche, don`t want to do identification of  this poison and  by that way identification of its buyer and poisoning  maker .

 

That is because  the authorities of Ploche are involved in this mass extermination  .

JAVNOSTI SRBIJE  NA   ZNANJE ,

pred usvajanje  Nacrta Zakona o dobrobiti životinja, čiji autori  smatraju da divlje  nisu životinje – što mnogo govori o specifičnoj težini  ovih autora .

U časopisu Caffe Vojvodina , februara 2009. piše  u članku sa naslovom BRINU O DIVLJAČI I ŽIVOTNOJ SREDINI  ,da  je u  Novim Kozarcima, kraj Kikinde , osnovan  Lorist hunting klub .

Ispod nekoliko redova  teksta krcatog narcisoidnim licemerjem ,  uslikala  se   grupa  naoružanih  polupijanih civila , nekrofila  nepoznatog psihološkog profila , opasna  paravojna  formacija ,koja  je uverena da je osnivanjem  svog kluba , postala  kompetentni , stručni  zaštitnik prirode , uprkos kontradikciji koju  vrišteći nameće , svakom  oku  s normalnom umom ,  bizarnost slike   desetine  malih  bespomoćnih  ,osećajnih bića  koji  leže kao biseri ispred njihovih  smrdljivih nogu ,  koje su ovi  samozvani “naučnici”

“ladno pokokali ”  brinući o  njima  i o životnoj sredini –  na  “naučnoj bazi” .

 

shunt12

 

Perverzni civili  mekih falusa  , s neskladom izmedju libida i potencije ,delimično i zbog  hroničnog  viška alkohola u krvi , umesto da su u čekaonicama  dobrih psihijatara ,  planiraju  razmestiti  žive mete po našim šumama – pominju krupnu  “trofejnu” divljač  –  svoj  “naučni” način zaštite  životne sredine ,što znači  da  ova ubijanja više  nisu  sport nego  “nauka  i zaštita životne sredine” .

 

Da nije  leševa , ova  bi sprdačina  bila komična , ovako je sramotna .

Hitno  je potrebno razoružati paravojne  formacije koje  grubo bazaju  i gmižu  po našoj životnoj sredini ,kvareći  njen savršen sklad , pod lažnom parolom da  je štite.

 

Pogledajte visokoumne “naučničke” face , koje  naprosto zrače “produhovljenošću”,  te slonove u staklenoj radnji – oni imaju nabijene puške u rukama, opasni su, razoružajte ih , gospodo – prošlo je njihovo vreme.

“Svemu ima vreme i svakom poslu pod nebom ima vreme “, , oni su sramotni rudiment  ,  gnojavi čir na dupetu  civilizacije  trećeg milenijuma, potrebni su im : lečenje  i prekvalifikacija –  mogli bi da pletu čarape , da prave drvene suvenire , neguju seoski turizam , igraju šah  sa  unucima ili  decom, i  umesto   što  njihove dečje ruke umaču  u  tudju krv , morali bi ih naučiti , nakon što njih to neko nauči,  kako se poštuje tudji život ,jer je jednako važan  kao i njihov , bez obzira na  pripadnost vrsti ili “imovnu kartu” .

Zašto bi Srbija  i dalje bila   skladište za  odlaganje opasnog otpada zapadne civilizacije – zašto bi perverzni tipovi dolazili pod  imenom:  lovni turisti  , iz Holandije  gde im  je zabranjeno da narušavaju  sklad prirode, da ga u Srbiji  plativši Radojici i Milojici  ruše  do mile volje.

Nema tih eura kojima se može platiti  očuvanje harmonije  biodiverziteta , u čijoj  nemerljivoj lepoti  imamo pravo pogledom svi uživati i niko  nema pravo  rušiti naše dostojanstvo , gazeći naše nacionalno blago .

 

Lovci , bez kluba i sa klubom, istrebili su  već mnoge životinjske vrste, organizuju  hajke  kojima  izbezumljuju i ubijaju i  to malo preostalih  , uVojvodini čak zakonom zaštićenih  vukova, izbezumljuju gradjane  čija prava time  grubo gaze , ubijaju im pse i mačke  na pragu njihovih kuća, a ubijaju nekada i  njih  ili se medjusobno obračunavaju , nekrofili  koji  prenose ovu “strast” za lešinama i na  svoju (?) decu .

 

Naše je ustavno pravo – a zakoni moraju  biti  u skladu s Ustavom , –  stvarno očuvanje , a ne puckaranje  po našoj životnoj sredini .

Kakav je to  turizam  u kojem  perverzni  frustrirani  Holandjanin -tkz. turista   dodje puckarati po našim šumama , jer  kod kuće  ne sme ni pomisliti na to , a ovde plati Radojici i Milojici , pa sme, jer Radojica i Milojica daju ušur  državi , koja  bi morala po Ustavu štititi  prava SVIH  gradjana  , a ne samo  ovih koji joj plate ušur , pa im onda ona  pokloni  šume da u njima pucaraju .Što ne sme  u svojoj , nastrani Holandjanin  ne bi smeo raditi ni u tudjoj kući , ma koliko platio Radojici i Milojici , jer  svi se pitamo – tako nalaže Ustav.

Prava i slobode  jednih   gradjana   Republike Srbije mogu biti ograničena samo istim pravima i slobodama svih drugih  gradjana , bez  snobovskih izuzetaka ,kao što je ovaj o kojem možete čitati  dole u pismu  kojim nam se obratio jedan od gradjana Srbije , čija su ustavna prava grubo zgažena  .

In this article it is written that the hunters have produced their own club, and that they care about wild animals and  they are the protectors of nature.

 

Please see the photographs to decide if they ‘care’ about wild animals.

 

Does killing wildlife mean that you are a ‘protector of nature’ ? – doubt it.

 

When nature is left alone it looks after itself.

ENGLISH :

 

Here is proof of crimes,  we (EPAR) have brought charges against those persons who have done and who do these crime – fighting between different animal species. Some of  the wild animals involved are  from a group  which is protected under special law.

 

For these crime, the Criminal Code of Republic of Serbia demand up to 3 years in prison for everybody who is involved.

 

We insist to have the implementation of the Serbian Criminal Code and that all those involved in this must be punished; they must go to jail  – there is no excuse for those  who organise and undertake illegal animal fighting, because that is in direct opposition to Serbian law !


 

 

 

Uk: Hunts Use Thuggery to Intimidate Anti-Hunt Monitors and Prevent Them Getting Evidence of ILLEGAL Hunting.

Hunts hit back at thug claims

 

WARNING! Videos contain explicit language.

 

Hunts use thuggery to intimidate anti-hunt monitors and prevent them getting evidence of illegal hunting.

 

Videos can be viewed at

 

http://www.thisisbristol.co.uk/wdp/news/Hunts-hit-thug-claims/article-706391-detail/article.html

 

That was the claim made by Somerset monitors as the League Against Cruel Sports stepped up its campaign and marked the fourth anniversary of the ban on hunting with dogs.

 

The Countryside Alliance (CA) quickly dismissed the claims, and also used the anniversary to unveil its newest member, the former boss of the League Against Cruel Sports.

 

James Barrington has long been a convert from the anti to the pro camp, but had been a founder of the Middle Way Group which aimed to find a compromise between the two sides. Now, however, the hunting expert has joined the CA, completing a journey right across the intractable debate.

 

He has joined the CA as an animal welfare consultant and accused his former allies in the anti-hunting camp of getting the hunt ban wrong, and of creating a law of sheer nonsense.

 

Meanwhile, the League group of which he used to be director issued a new compilation of footage taken by two of its hunt monitors in Somerset, showing the abuse it claims they receive from hunters on a regular basis.

 

Helen Weeks and Graham Forsyth, among other hunt monitors, took the footage which reveals huntsmen and followers abusing, threatening and, in a couple of cases, assaulting them as they tried to film the hunt’s activities.

 

Last week, on the basis of some of the footage, huntsman Christopher Marles was convicted of assaulting Helen Weeks, and will be sentenced next month.

 

League chief executive Douglas Batchelor said: “In releasing this new footage, the League is highlighting that the issue is not just with illegal hunting under the Hunting Act, nor the negative impacts on animal welfare.

 

“Instead the problems include thuggery and intimidation carried out by hunters and hunt havoc caused by out- of-control hounds.

“These incidents can range from monitors being routinely abused or attacked, to family pets being mauled and killed when hunt hounds go on the rampage.

 

“The League has recently employed a retired police officer to give further expertise in prosecuting these offences.

 

“The footage reveals some of the worst behaviour carried out by huntsmen and women, the so-called gentry of the countryside. Some of this footage is extremely disturbing and we think the public will be shocked when they see exactly what goes on when some hunts get together.

 

“The gang-like mentality of some extremists, along with the bullying behaviour is simply not acceptable in any sector of society. It’s time the true colours of these people were exposed for all to see.”

 

The CA dismissed the footage and said Christopher Marles had been banned from going hunting in the wake of his conviction. In heralding its new recruit, the CA said Mr Barrington had made a remarkable journey across the hunting spectrum.

 

Alliance chief executive Simon Hart said: “Four years after the Hunting Act came into force, the question is when, not if, it will be repealed.

 

“We are thrilled James has agreed to work with us to achieve that goal. He is a remarkable man who has made a remarkable journey and no one could question his commitment to animal welfare.”

 

Mr Barrington said he joined the Alliance because he had come to the conclusion it was the only way to best get the hunt ban repealed.

 

“Working with the Countryside Alliance seems like a logical progression as the Hunting Act has been revealed as pointless and damaging to animal welfare,” he said.

 

“My ex-colleagues in the anti-hunting movement are increasingly frustrated by the failure of the Act, but it is their law. After literally decades of campaigning, millions of pounds spent and numerous Bills and debates, they got it wrong.

 

“They now expect the police and the courts to sort out this mess. If only some of the many other animal welfare issues, such as the plight of primates in Africa or dog farming in China, could attract such attention. The Act is sheer nonsense and I cannot understand or accept the proposition that it even addresses the issue of animal welfare.”

 

Anti-hunt campaigners disagreed, saying the only problem with the Act was that it needed better enforcement from the police and the courts. The League pointed that 63 prosecutions had been made and another 18 were pending.

An Early Day Motion has recently been tabled at Westminster, calling for better enforcement of the Act and has been signed by more than 130 MPs so far.

Afghanistan: Dogfighting Making a Comeback

Dogfighting Making a Comeback in Afghanistan

Afghanistan:Fall of the Taliban-Resurgence of Dog fighting

January 27, 2009

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/28/world/asia/28dogfight.html?_r=1

 

KABUL, Afghanistan

 

In a dingy butcher’s shop reeking of slaughter, a half-dozen sheep’s carcasses dangled from hooks, and two men spoke of dogs.

 

Tyler Hicks/The New York Times

dogfight2

dogfight

 

Dogfighting tournaments in Kabul draw thousands of men and boys as spectators.

“My dog is younger than his dog, I have the advantage,” said one of the men, known as Abdul Sabour, 49. “And my dog is more energetic than his dog.”

 

“He’s lying,” grumbled the other man, Kefayatullah, 50. “His dog is old. He’s just here wasting his time. How many dogs has my dog beaten? Sixty! My dog has been a champion for three years!”

 

The men were arranging a dogfight, largely in the international language of trash-talking. They represented two groups of bettors. The purse, they said, was $50,000, a fortune in this impoverished country and one of the biggest prizes here in recent memory.

 

Afghans like to fight. They will boast about this. They will say that fighting is in their blood. And for all the horrors of three decades of war, they still find room to fight for fun, most often through proxies: cocks, rams, goats, camels, kites.

And dogs. Dogfighting was banned under the Taliban, who considered it un-Islamic. But since the Taliban’s ouster in 2001, the sport has regained its earlier popularity, with dogfighters entering their charges in informal weekly tournaments on dusty lots in the country’s major cities.

 

The sport has even experienced a resurgence in the south, where the influence of the Taliban is strongest, though the crowds have thinned somewhat since February, when a suicide bomber detonated himself at a dogfighting match. About 80 people were killed and more were wounded.

 

Here in the capital, there are two tournaments every week, both on Friday, the day of prayer. The bigger one unfolds in the morning in a natural dirt amphitheater at the bottom of a craggy slope on the city’s outskirts. It draws thousands of men and boys as spectators — like most sports and sporting events in Afghanistan, it is almost exclusively a male pursuit.

 

“It’s something from our ancestors,” said Ghulam Yahya Amirzadah, 21, whose family owns 17 dogs in Kabul and in their hometown in the northwest province of Badghis.

 

Mr. Amirzadah, who is known in dogfighting circles as Lala Herati, said he inherited the pastime from his father, who ran fighting dogs in his youth.

“It’s not about money,” Mr. Amirzadah said. “If my dog beats another dog, it makes me feel like I’ve won $100,000. I can survive just from the happiness.”

 

On a recent Friday, Mr. Amirzadah was at the dogfighting amphitheater, though without his dogs. He was watching the fights and arranging future matches for his stable.

 

More than 2,000 people were there — poor men who had arrived on foot as well as former warlords in sport utility vehicles accompanied by Kalashnikov-toting guards. And there were dozens of dogs — hulking, big-headed mastiff breeds that, in the right light and the wrong setting, might be mistaken for small bears. Some were so big that they had to be restrained by two men. A few owners, their arms tired, had lashed their dogs to the wheels of cars.

 

An informal committee of arbiters, including Mr. Kefayatullah and Abdul Sabour, was selecting the fights and matching up the dogs. Some fights had been organized days in advance, with hundreds of dollars, sometimes thousands, riding on each.

A ringmaster, a toothless old man with a turban and a limp, presided over the event. He carried a wooden staff that he used to beat spectators who crowded the dirt arena and members of the dogfighters’ entourages who blocked the view.

 

Though dogfighting is again popular here, it is far from universally embraced. The country’s elite disparage it as the domain of the uncultured and the criminal.

“In my personal view, it’s not a good thing,” said Ghulam Nabi Farahi, deputy minister of information and culture. “In today’s world, these animals should be treated well. But unfortunately, there’s a lot of fighting.”

 

But dogfighters generally shrug at these sorts of remarks. In modern Afghan society, there are not many sources of entertainment, they argue. In addition, they say, the dogs are well fed and well treated.

 

“The interest of the people is increasing day by day,” said Sher Mohammad Sheywaki, 50, who was standing on the edge of the fighting pitch. “Even if people are starving, they’ll still keep dogfighting.”

 

A fight was about to begin. Two dogs were brought close by their owners, then

released. They lunged at each other, thrusting upward on hind legs and clamping their jaws onto each other’s face. They tugged and twisted each other, looking for leverage, each trying to knock the other off balance.

Their handlers pressed in, shouting encouragement and slapping the dogs on their haunches, as a jockey would a racehorse. A cameraman crouched nearby, recording the fight for collectors’ DVDs. A large cloud of dust enveloped the scrum.

This fight, like most others, was over in a few minutes when one dog had pinned the other to the ground and held him there. They were pulled apart and hauled out of the ring.

 

In some countries, dogfighters will fight their dogs to the death. But Afghan dogfighting is more akin to Greco-Roman wrestling. A dog is declared the victor when he clearly establishes his dominance over the other, or when the weaker dog displays one of the telltale signs of submission, including backing off from the fight or putting its tail between its legs. They are usually pulled apart before they can inflict serious damage on each other.

The stakes for dogfighters are too high to risk their charges any further. Dogs may be a costly investment for the average Afghan, but they can also make their owners money.

 

On the eve of the fight between Mr. Kefayatullah’s dog, Palang (meaning tiger), and Abdul Sabour’s dog, Zambur (bee), the planned $50,000 purse dropped to $10,000, according to Mr. Kefayatullah.

 

The fight took place on a sunny and chilly Friday morning this month. It was heavily anticipated, and the crowd was large. For more than 10 minutes, Palang and Zambur tore against each other, drawing blood. Mr. Kefayatullah, Abdul Sabour and others with money riding on the fight stayed close and yelled encouragement, according to Mr. Amirzadah, who attended.

 

Eventually, Zambur, Abdul Sabour’s dog, ran out of steam and Palang overwhelmed him, prompting the men to call a halt to the fight. In celebration, friends of Mr. Kefayatullah swarmed Palang, whose fur was wet with blood, and showered him with Afghani bills.

 

Except for deep wounds on a leg and an ear, Palang was O.K. But his owner was not. Minutes after the fight, Mr. Kefayatullah collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. He had a heart attack.

 

“It was a stroke of joy and happiness!” he joked a week later, as he lay in a ward in the Wazir Akhbar Khan Hospital in Kabul. His wife and daughter sat at his bedside. “I’ll be up in no time,” he said, “and everything will be back to normal, like before.”

His wife’s face visibly tensed. “No you won’t!” she said, glaring. She was serious. He was smiling. The daughter looked embarrassed.

 

“It’s over,” Mr. Kefayatullah’s wife continued. “I will kill the dogs! I will give them some pills.”

 

Mr. Kefayatullah shrugged and smiled again, trying to defuse the situation. “She says a lot, but I don’t listen,” he said, and he vowed to be back at the Friday dogfights — with his champion dogs — soon enough.

‘Lance’ – Brindle Greyhound ……………….

 

This gorgeous boy is ‘Lance’ who has the most fantastic temperament – a real big softy, and for the past 4 years he has shared his life with 3 cats, 2 birds, and a baby who is now 5 years old.

 

Due to a marriage break up, and the ex-husband being out at work all day, and the ex-wife’s land-lord not permitting dogs – ‘Lance’ is desperately looking for either a foster home or permanent home.

 

He was rescued by us when he was 5 years old – a sad, thin, unwanted ex-racer, kept mostly out in a garden after being off loaded (on at least two accounts) to a ‘new owner’, who then didn’t have time for him.

 

This 9 year old gentle laid back boy, who thought he had found his forever home, is in need again, due to him losing his family…………….

 

Please contact Action for Greyhounds as above DIRECT – if you can offer a foster home or permanent home to ‘Lance’, who needs to be fostered/homed in the Norfolk/Suffolk area.

 

Thank you.
