USA: Idaho is at it again – state officials have just requested another $400,000 to kill even more wolves!





Dear Mark,

It’s breaking the bank and breaking our hearts.

Idaho is at it again – state officials have just requested another $400,000 to kill even more wolves!

Enough is enough. Your urgent support for Defenders of Wildlife will help us protect wolves and other vulnerable wildlife.

The state calls it the “Wolf Depredation Control Board.” We call it the “Wolf Kill Board.” What it really does is funnel state taxpayers’ money for the sole purpose of killing wolves.

And make no mistake – this wolf-hating panel wants to kill every wolf it’s allowed to.

Here’s what one Wolf Kill Board member told state legislators at a budget hearing: “We think we’re going to need every dime of that money before this is over.”

Many of these killings are sanctioned to artificially inflate deer and elk numbers!

Idaho’s wolves have been in growing jeopardy since Congress stripped them of protection under the Endangered Species Act in 2011. Since Idaho took over their management, the number of breeding pairs, which are necessary to maintain the population, have plummeted.

Defenders is the only national organization with staff on the ground in Idaho working not only to help restore wolves but at the statehouse and state wildlife commission testifying against these actions threatening wolves. Your urgent support will help us fight to end Idaho’s rogue war on wolves.

Please help – before it’s too late.

Beirut: CIWF (UK) Expose Utter Animal Cruelty In All Forms At The Karantina Slaughterhouse. Now It Is Currently Closed Down.



Picture – CIWF.

An update from our friends and fellow campaigners; Philip and the crew at Compassion In World Farming (CIWF), down at Godalming, here in England.


Please note that the video on the following link shows extreme cruelty, and viewer discretion is advised.

Update January 2015:

During December 2014 Compassion attended several meetings in Beirut with government officials to discuss and advise on the animal welfare issues at Karantina and the potential next steps that must be taken to reduce animal suffering. It became clear that authorities wish to carry out temporary renovation work at Karantina with a view to building a new slaughterhouse in the future that will both improve animal welfare and food hygiene. Officials were positive about the importance of improving animal welfare in any new set up and have said they will keep Compassion involved as the situation develops. We very much hope that this work will be the start of improving other slaughterhouses in Lebanon also, so that we can see a meaningful reduction in the suffering of the animals facing slaughter in Lebanon.

Update November 2014:

We are delighted to report that the Karantina Slaughterhouse has been SHUT DOWN. This is a fantastic result for Compassion supporters, following our 130,000 strong petition and extensive lobbying efforts. We wait to hear how long the shutdown will last, and what the plans are for the future. But right now, the Karantina slaughterhouse, one of the cruellest we have ever borne witness to, is empty. Millions more animals need our help, please take the action below to demand that no more European animals are exported beyond the reach of animal welfare laws.

Horrific conditions exposed

In 2013, as part of our investigation into the fate of exported EU animals Compassion witnessed animals being subjected to brutal slaughter conditions in Lebanon.

Man dragging a sheep at the Karantina slaughterhouse

At the Karantina slaughterhouse in Beirut, which supplies a third of the meat in the Lebanese capital, animals were being picked up and slammed onto their backs on the concrete floor, where they were held down as their throats were cut while they were fully conscious. Sheep were dragged by one hind leg to a line where they are slaughtered alongside others that were thrashing around in blood and faeces.

The treatment these animals face contravenes the guidelines of the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) of which Lebanon is a member. Compassion in World Farming is currently campaigning to have Karantina shut down until such a time when it can be renovated to provide slaughter facilities that, at the very minimum, meet OIE standards.

Who we (SAV) ask are the real terrorists ?? – animal rights, or the alleged humans creating terror in all these animals which you see in this footage ??

Serbia: 5/2/15 – More News From Danica At Shelter Felix.

Danica Mirkovic Shelter Felix

Unfortunately, last year’s phase of shelter repairs lasted forever and it wasn’t until mid November that we began to think of raising funds for the first tank of gas for central heating.

Things couldn’t have looked darker until the awesome Laura Simpson and her very impressive organization The Great Animal Rescue Chase & Harmony Fund stepped in and managed to raise almost the entire sum needed in no time at all.

Thanks to all of the wonderful people who responded to our plea for help, none of the Felix kitties even noticed the severe drops of outside temperatures in December as their rooms were properly heated and pleasantly warm.

The first shipment of heating fuel is supposed to last until the end of February and then we’ll have to find a way to raise the funds for another gas delivery.
