Europeans try to save storks, then this happens over Lebanon.

There is no fighting chance for migratory birds when they fly over Lebanon: Hunting laws may be in place in the Middle East, but who’s enforcing them?

From storks and pelicans to hoopoers to eagles to migratory songbirds… see the images of the bloodbath in Lebanon during this year’s hunting season:

New migratory birds; another year of senseless slaughter.

A savage country in the migratory corridor of European birds!

Will anyone stop them?

Some species of birds that can be seen in the pictures are very rare and endangered.

India: Breaking News – Supreme Court of India Intervenes to Save Thousands of Animals from Nepal’s Brutal Gadhimai Festival Sacrifice.

Supreme Court of India Intervenes to Save Thousands of Animals from Nepal’s Brutal Gadhimai Festival Sacrifice

The Supreme Court of India passed an interim order directing the Union of India to prevent the illegal movement of animals across the border from India to Nepal, to be sacrificed at the Gadhimai Festival, scheduled to be held on 28-29 November. Approximately 70 percent of the animals to be sacrificed at the festival will come from India, so the immediate implementation of this order could have a significant impact on the event, even leading to the entire sacrifice being abandoned.

The animal movements are in violation of the Export-Import Policy of India and the Foreign Trade Act (Development and Regulation) Act 1992, which categorically places live cattle and buffalo in the restricted export category, requiring a license to legally export them. This rule is being openly flouted as the majority of animals are transported illegally across the border without an export license. The Court’s order was passed in direct response to an urgent petition submitted by Smt. Gauri Maulekhi, consultant to Humane Society International/India and Trustee of People for Animals.


N.G. Jayasimha, managing director of Humane Society International/India, said: “The Gadhimai Festival’s massacre of innocent animals is an unholy bloodbath that has no place whatsoever in religion. This mass slaughter of animals is not part of Hinduism and has been thoroughly and rightly rejected by the Hindu Council of Britain. The Supreme Court of India’s order offers a vital lifeline to the hundreds of thousands of animals being illegally taken across the border to be killed, and there is every chance that with this action we can prevent the killing going ahead this year. In a modern, civilised society we cannot continue to sanction the death of animals in the name of religion.”

The Festival is held in Nepal every five years and involves the barbaric ritual sacrifice of 500,000 animals including water buffalo, sheep, pigs, rats, pigeons and chickens over a two day period. The animals are killed in front of each other, using blunt knives and swords to cut their throats.

Justice Kehar of the Supreme Court of India observed that the sacrifice of animals at the Gadhimai Festival was “demeaning and cruel” and that such brutal treatment must not be meted out on India’s animals, referring to the fact that 70 percent of the animals sacrificed at the festival come from India.

The Court notice affects the Union of India and the four border States of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and West Bengal, from where a majority of the animals are transported illegally.

Serbia: YOUR HELP NOW NEEDED To Write To International Serbian Embassies Global. Sample Letter and Contact Details Provided Below. Please Write and Be A Voice for Nani Today !

Serbian  Flag

 UPDATED 24/10/14 – New Photos and Letters

For other global articles and issues, please scroll down to ‘Latest Posts’ on the right side.

This post is going to remain as the first main post on the site at present; and will be updated as necessary.

We are still in the situation where the Serbian Minster (Photo below) is not making any decision regarding Nani

Serb Minister 1






So now we have to move on further with our campaign to free Nani deer and return Nani to Mrs. Mitic. 


The following links provide access to all Serbian embassies around the world.




To take action for Nani, please find your national Serbian embassy from the list provided above. 

Check out e mail contact details on how to write to them at the specific embassy.


Then copy the following sample letter and all the attachment links which follow it.

Please send the letter and the links to your own national Serbian embassy.

Every embassy has a legal requirement to return the issues that it has had correspondence about back to the government in Serbia.  We need to show the Serbian government that the ‘Nani campaign’ has now gone global and that Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic who originally had 30 days for acting in agreement to, and implementing Article 58 of Serbian Law for Animal Welfare has still taken no action in double this period.

As the Serbian Minister cannot enforce existing Serbian law, Serbia should thus not be allowed to become an EU member state.


The sample letter can also be copied to the EU Enlargement Commission at:





– Also include the links given at the end.


Dear Sir / Madam;

I am writing with the wish that my views are immediately returned to the government of Serbia – please ensure that this information is passed on.

For many weeks now a young deer named ‘Nani’ has been illegally held within Serbia by hunters who are involved with corrupt Serbian state police officials.  Nani deer was being cared for by a lady called Mrs. Mitic after the mother of the deer was shot and killed by these hunters.

The Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic originally had 30 days for acting in agreement to, and implementing Article 58 of Serbian Law for Animal Welfare; to enforce action and return Nani to the care of Mrs. Mitic.  She has not done this and we are now around 70 days late in having action from the Serbian Minister.  Still she does nothing.

What has she got to hide ? – why is she so incompetent that she is not able to enforce existing Serbian animal welfare law ? – she is supposed to be qualified in laws associated with animals and animal science.

Any sensible person would know that Nani must immediately be returned for permanent residence with Mrs. Mitic.

Members of the European parliament (MEP’s) have already been informed of the ignorant attitude of Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic in this case regarding Nani.

Minister Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic IS NOT enforcing existing Serbian law on animal welfare; ie. Implementing Article 58; thus I consider that Serbia and the Serbian government are not enforcing implementation of the ‘rule of law’ (within Serbia); this enforcement being a fundamental requirement to be shown by any member state seeking EU accession (membership).

Thus I am left with no option now but to inform my political representatives that Serbia is not worthy of EU membership until Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic acts positively; makes an immediate decision that Nani deer must immediately be returned to Mrs. Mitic permanently.

The name of Serbia has already been tarnished by the inaction of Minister Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic. 

So now, until she acts the correct way and releases Nani permanently back to the care of Mrs. Mitic; I will campaign to ensure that Serbia, which is not enforcing its own legislation (the rule of law); is kept out of becoming an EU member state.

Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic – Act immediately – free Nani deer !


Name and nationality.
