INTERNATIONAL NEWS LETTER

August 2009

 

INTERNATIONAL ACTION ALERT, AGAINST “SAFARI HUNTING”

Many animals suffer prolonged, painful deaths when they are injured but not killed by hunters. Hunting disrupts migration and hibernation patterns and destroys families. For animals like wolves, who mate for life and live in close-knit family units, hunting can devastate entire communities. The stress that hunted animals suffer—caused by fear and the inescapable loud noises and other commotion that hunters create—also severely compromises their normal eating habits, making it hard for them to store the fat and energy that they need in order to survive the winter.

TAKE ACTION NOW FOR DOGS IN SKOPJE (MACEDONIA)

OIPA received a desperate alert from “Heart for the Animals”, a local organization, about the dreadful situation of stray dogs in Skopje (Macedonia).
There is one only shelter over there, where dogs are killed in huge number and impressive frequency. The Mayor, responsible of the shelter, declared openly that dogs must be killed, everyone of them. Volounteers protested, of course, but it’s been vain.
The shelter was meant to sterilize dogs and then let them go, but OFFICIALLY 56% of dogs are killed.

HELP CATS AND DOGS IN BELARUS

The situation for cats and dogs – stray and owned –  in Belarus is desperate. In the country there are not Municipal shelters.  The only way used to control the stray animals over population is the killing. Every year, across the country, about 70.000 animals are killed.
In Minsk, with the tax money, it was built a temporary shelter for cats and dogs. It is the only one in the country, its name is “The fauna of the city”, and there all the stray animals are taken after the capture. The living conditions are horrible: cold, few food, illness and the animals are abused.

PROTEST AGAINST “PUXADA DE CAVALOS” IN BRAZIL

Animal rights people in Santa Catarina, a state in southern Brazil, report another case of abuse and  ill-treatment of animals.
This time, the victims are the horses, used for a regional competition called “Puxada de Cavalos”, that consists in using horses to draw a load that weigh about 2 tons.

VICTORY IN ALABAMA (USA) – SIMULATOR REPLACES LIVE PIGS IN TRAUMA TRAINING COURSE

A wonderful news for the animals from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
Independence Day came early this year for pigs in Alabama. Just four days after PCRM wrote to ask the University of South Alabama to stop killing pigs in its trauma training course, the university contacted PCRM to learn about superior nonanimal training methods. In the latest course, instructors used the TraumaMan System instead of live pigs.
