Zbog sramne odluke Ministarstva poljoprivrede, sumarstva i vodoprirede, iz 2006. godine, da sa liste prirodnih retkosti skine neke vrste ptica i uvrsti  ih u lovnu divljac, zimski masakr nad pticama koje su zbog dugog hladnog perioda sa snegom i negativnim temperaturama pod elementarnom nepogodom, (mnostvo vodenih povrsina se zaledilo i to je ptice prisililo na vece koncentracije na vodama koje se nisu zaledile), umesto obustave lovnih aktivnosti, lovni pritisak se u januaru i februaru pojacao sto je rezultovalo pomorom vodenih ptica. Sto i nije cudo, jer je briga o fauni Srbije prepustena lovcima, koji uglavnom ne znaju i ne postuju zivot i potrebe faune a ni osetiljive ornitofaune, uostalom izlovljavanje i briga o fauni su u direktnoj suprotnosti, u tkzv. sukobu interesa…jer je interes lovaca da sto vise pucaju i pobiju sto se kosi sa opstankom faune, te nije poznato na osnovu kojih kriterijuma su lovci dobili na gazdovanje to prirodno bogatstvo drzave.

Naredbom o lovostaju divljaci br. 55/06 od 28.06.2006. god.  u lovnu divljac su, uz veliko protivljenje svih strucnjaka, zastitara i drustava za zastitu i proucavanje divljih ptica ipak uvrstene vrste kao :
1. Anas querquedula  (plovka pupcanica)
2. Anas penelope      (plovka zvizdara)
3. Gallinago gallinago  (barska sljuka, bekasina)
i druge vrste koje su trebale biti skinute sa liste lovne divljaci, a
1. zbog pada brojnosti populacije,
2. zbog klimatskih promena koje se negativno odrazavaju na zivi svet pa mnogo naucnika predvidja drasticno smanjenje faune uopste na tlu Evrope,
3. zbog gubitka ekoloske bitke gde ostaju bez stanista, koja su fragmentisana ili unistena zbog cega su opet prisiljene na koncetracije na terenima gde mogu da zive, ali u manjem broju,itd…

bh61Umesto smanjenja/ukidanja lovnih aktivnosti na neke vrste, u Srbiji, pod gazdovanjem lovaca desava se suprotno od trendova cele Evrope i lovni pritisak  na ptice se povecava kao i broj vrsta koje se nalaze na spisku lovne divljaci umesto na spisku zasticenih prirodnih retkosti.  Poznato je da je Srbija sa najvecim brojem vrsta ptica na spisku lovne divljaci koje su odavno u Evropi pod trajnim lovostajem i uzivaju posebnu zastitu, posebna paznja im se posvecuje i zemlje EU mnogo novca izdvajaju za opstanak ptica.  Medjutim, priroda ptica je takva da ih u jesen nagon natera na selidnu u toplije krajeve, pa tako stignu i u divlju Srbiju, gde bivaju brutalno i masovno pobijene, na razne nacine, sa raznim mamcima, vabilicama i drugim nedozvoljenim pomocnim sredstvima, cime se ponistava rad i ulaganje drugih zemalja koje ulazu napore za ocuvanje ornitofaune Evrope.

Zbog, od strane vlasti dozvoljenog  izlova ptica u nevreme, kad su ranjive, neretko i izgladnele, slabe, umorne i lake mete  zbog okupljanja u veca jata  u kojima se nalaze i vrste koje nisu dozvoljene za lov, na nezaledjenim vodenim povrsinama, po “zakonu” se vrsi masakr nad njima. Naime, ulaskom lovaca na takve terene uz prekomerno ubijanje ptica koje su neopradvano na listi lovne divljaci biva ubijeno i mnogo drugih retkih, ranjivih ili ugrozenih vrsta vodenih ptica, koje se cak ni ne nalaze na spisku lovnih ptica.
Ovakvo ponasanje i nebriga drzave Srbije  za ornitofaunu, za koju sve evropske zemlje izdvajaju velika novcana sredstva i rad za ocuvanje, proucavanje i zastitu nikako nece biti tolerisano, nase vlasti kojoj su puna usta Evrope nikako da pocnu da se ponasaju u skladu sa tom Evropom.
Umesto uskladjivanja i za konkretan slucaj zabrane lova, smanjenje vrsta ptica sa spiska lovne divljaci, lovci sire lazne vesti ( s obzirom na veliki medijski prostor koji im je obezbedjen, nepoznato je zasto) koje nalaze uporiste u neprosvecenim masama a i u vlasti da se EU nece mesati u lokalno lovno zakonodavstvo….Mesace se, itekako kad sazna sta se ovde desava i koliko se ovde “njihovih” ptica pobije za koje izdvajaju velike novce i rad a njihovim lovcima ne pada na pamet da podignu pusku na bilo koju zasticenu vrstu. Kod njih je zasticenih vrsta mnogo, retke su vrste koje se jos nalaze na spisku lovne divljaci  s tendencijom da se i one uvrste u prirodne retkosti.

bh4Lovci iz zemalja EU su ovde, u divlju Srbiju u kojoj gazduju lovci, dobrodosli i u saradnji sa agencijama za “razvijanje lovnog turizma” koje dobro zaradjuju rasprodajuci nase prirodno bogatstvo i guranje malo evrica u dzep lokalcima “milojici i radojici” mogu da pobiju sta god hoce i koliko god hoce. Ono sto im u njihovoj evropskoj zemlji  nije dozvoljeno i ono sto im ne bi palo na pamet da rade, jer su kazne rigorozne i novcane i zatvorske,  ovde im se tolerise mogu do mile volje zbog zarade agencija i pojedinaca.  Sve to bagatelno. Po povratku u svoje zemlje, lovci nadugacko i nasiroko pricaju o zemlji Srbiji u kojoj se sve moze.  Uostalom, poznate su brojne afere ubijanja i sverca balkanskih, srpskih ptica od kojih nijedna nije dobila sudski epilog , niti je iko odgovarao za pomor ptica. Hvatani su na granicnim prelazima mnogi “turisti” iz Srbije sa stotinama i hiljadama mrtvih ptica u transportu, nekima je sudjeno i osudjeni su u njihovim zemljama, jedino u nasoj zemlji, Srbiji, svi koji su “turiste” vodali i organizovali im pomor ptica, ostali su NN lica!!!!

Uostalom, na slikama se vidi na sta je licio lov tokom zimskih meseci sirom Srbije, na slikama se mogu videti i vrste koje nisu na listi lovne divljaci, koje se zasticene kao prirodne retkosti. Sve ovo su “samo” nasi lovci pobili a ovo je samo mali deo masakra ptica.

 

 

Bali: URGENT – Authorities Have Killed Over 1,000 Dogs – Your Help Required

Bali’s dogs are dying.

In a kneejerk reaction to six suspected human rabies fatalities, the island’s authorities have killed over 1,000 dogs. This number could rise dramatically.   

The animal suffering is acute. Strychnine is being used to poison some of the dogs, leaving them conscious and convulsing until they eventually suffocate.

People are suffering too – the vast majority of victims are pets that are allowed to roam freely.

Reliant on tourism, Bali must prevent the spread of rabies. But a dog cull does not attack the root cause and cannot safeguard human health.

The World Health Organization recognizes that the most effective way to eradicate this fatal disease is mass vaccination of dogs alongside rabies prevention education.

This has been proven to eradicate rabies in many countries; mass killing has consistently failed.

The Bali Rabies Forum, a coalition of animal welfare groups including WSPA, has developed recommendations on humane, effective rabies prevention for Bali. But this cannot work without the commitment of the authorities.

ACTION – Via the link below, send a message to the Bali’s governor asking him to adopt a humane approach, protecting animals and ensuring islanders and visitors have nothing to fear from rabies:-

Dog’s ‘disgusting death the tip of the iceberg’

Derry Journal- Ireland
greyhound1

A dog carcass washed up along the bank of the River Foyle recently.

Published Date: 06 March 2009

 

This “shocking and disgusting” picture reveals a dog trussed up in a potato sack which had been thrown in the River Foyle to die.

The animal’s carcass was then washed ashore in a quiet Derry suburb where it still lies on the riverbank.In an illfated fight for survival the animal was able to force its hind legs’ through the sack but was unable to escape.

This, according to Joanne Mullan, a volunteer at the Rainbow Animal Shelter who attended the scene, displays a level of animal cruelty described as ‘the tip of an iceberg in the North West’.

Remarkably the pictures were taken by Ms. Mullan while investigating a totally separate case of animal cruelty on the Bay Road Industrial Estate.

Having first received a call concerning a cat trapped in a hamster cage, Ms. Mullan found: “to my horror, the cats back legs were badly injured before the animal was caged and abandoned in the middle of the Bay Road.”

There was nothing anyone could do and a veterinarian was called who had no choice but to put the animal to sleep. It is believed the cat was a household pet.

“This is something I have never seen in my life before,” said Joanne who has worked at the animal shelter for the last ten years.
It was while attending to the cat that a passer by informed her of the dead dog on the riverbank.

“It was a horrible day and it was clear that this dog was still alive when dumped in the river, as it pushed its legs through the sack. Although badly decomposed I believe it to be a greyhound carcass.

“This animal died a horrific horrendous death. This is totally inexcusable and absolutely disgusting but probably is just the tip of the iceberg.”
