May we cooperate with All in the name of the animals?

May we cooperate with All in the name of the animals?

A few days ago, I read an article on a very well-known web page. The title: “Left Radical, Right Radical, who gives a shit!

The main point is that We Fight for Animals “. Hitler was praised several times because he was supposedly vegetarian and loved dogs. The central idea of this article was: it does not matter whether the animal rights movement cooperates with fascists.

If you do it for the animals, you should do it, and this organization would never reject or exclude right-wing radicals if these right-wing parties, groups, organizations, etc. are committed to animals.

I immediately wrote an article, it had a good effect. Meanwhile the article was removed by the operator of the site, but I translate my post anyway.:

“One of the aims of the right-wing forces is to capture political groups and parties in the context of the animal welfare and animal rights movement.

They hope to increase their approval for their anti-emancipatory positions. The strategy of the „Querfront“ (cross-front, bringing together or ignoring conflicting ideologies) is often used, but all considerations about the abolition of the borders between right and left usually fall in favor of the right faction. For it is their invention and their strategy.

The right-wing radicals have recognized and partially exploited the childhood disease of the animal welfare movement (infantilism and sentimentality). It sounds good when all doors are open, it is modern, globally-succinct, in a nutshell: it sells well.

Who benefits from this “cooperation”? The animals by no way! The animal rights movement even less! The groupings, that have initiated and created this cross-front in the background, have got what it takes. For years, the right-wingers have been trying to domesticize the animal rights movement with the viruses of the ” who gives a shit!” mentality. I would advise against fighting Fascism against animals with the help of fascism against humans.

It is a fatal error with consequences.”

Please help my 4 dogs to pay debt for accommodation for December, January and February. Needed 340 euros for all debt.

Kuci and Kiki are in kennels over 4 years, and Dona and her daughter Lela are waiting for their homes almost 2 years. It is too long, and all the time they don’t have permanent help.

Every month I have to pay 40 euros for accommodation for Kuci, Kiki and Dona and 20 euros for Lela. Also, I have to pay food, vet costs, protection…

I can not do by myself and begging you for any help. I can not put them to street after all these years. I can’t do that.

I was paying for them for a long time but now, I don’t have regular job and I am in a real trouble.

UK / NL: We Never Shoot Them – Only With A Camera ! – Watch The Amazing Starlings ‘Murmuration’.

 

 

uk  netherlands

 

mum1

Enjoy watching these – known in the UK as ‘starlings murmuration’; a beautiful dance by starling birds which happens at twilight each night.

 

Tens and tens of thousands of birds are often involved and people are amazed and dumbfounded how all the birds know exactly in which direction to turn at any specific second.

 

mum2

It is not really known why the term ‘murmuration’ is used or even where it came from – but it is something that can be traced back hundreds of years regarding the bird displays.

 

Here in the UK it is often descibed as the best free dance routine anyone can see.  Special observation places are stationed and set up around the UK for people to venture out at dusk and witness this amazing display.

 

Here are a couple of videos from the UK, and one from the Netherlands.

 

Enjoy this amazing display put on by the birds for free for observers every evening !

USA: Big Success In New Mexico for Project Coyote.

unst0001

Dear Mark,

As I head to Rohnert Park, California this morning with several members of Project Coyote’s team to speak before the California Fish and Game Commission for protection of wolves and other wildlife from traps and night-hunting, I want to share with you New Mexico’s very favorable response to the premiere screenings of Project Coyote’s documentary film Unfair Game: Ending Wildlife Killing Contests. I also want to update you on our New Mexico coalition’s efforts to ban coyote killing contests statewide.

In early January, we showed the film and presented a panel discussion afterwards in Las Cruces, Albuquerque, and Santa Fe. Panelists included New Mexico State Senator Jeff Steinborn (sponsor of SB 268); Ray Powell, former New Mexico State Land Commissioner; Dan Flores, award-winning author of Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History; Kevin Bixby, Executive Director of Southwest Environmental Center—a coalition partner; Jessica Johnson, Chief Legislative Officer of Animal Protection New Mexico—a coalition partner; Dave Parsons, wildlife biologist and Project Coyote Science Advisory Board member; and myself.

We had a fabulous turnout in all three cities — standing room only in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. And Las Cruces is currently showing the documentary on the city’s cable television station, the Las Cruces Channel (38), for the next six weeks during the legislative session.

Because of the overwhelming interest that New Mexicans have shown in the film, we are hoping to provide additional showings in the state.

Check out our footage montage from the screenings here and watch the film trailer here.

We’re thrilled to share that on January 30th, New Mexico Senator Senator Jeff Steinborn (D-Las Cruces) and Senator Mark Moores (R-Albuquerque) reintroduced a senate bill in the State Legislature to ban coyote killing contests. Moores and Steinborn had previously passed legislation through the State Senate in 2015.

Like that bill, the current bill, SB 268, aims to put a stop to the dozens of organized competitions held annually in New Mexico, in which participants compete for prizes for killing the most coyotes over a certain time period. Often special prizes are given for killing the largest, smallest, youngest or largest coyote. Read more here.

Statewide media coverage, combined with our multi-city film screenings, has helped to increase public awareness across New Mexico; both the Santa Fe New Mexican and the Albuquerque Journal have published favorable editorials in support of banning coyote killing contests.

Our New Mexico team is actively engaged in this coalition effort. You can read a recent article quoting Project Coyote Science Advisory Board member and Albuquerque resident Dave Parsons about these issues here, as well as a recent Op Ed titled “Coyote-killing contests in the Land of Enchantment” in the Santa Fe New Mexican by Dave and Project Coyote Ambassador Dan Flores here. And you can watch Dave speak about wildlife killing contests in this short video.

Today, in conjunction with our coalition partners, Project Coyote’s New Mexico Representative Judy Paulsen and volunteers will take part in the Sierra Club’s Lands, Water and Wildlife Lobby Day 2017 at the New Mexico State Capital Building Rotunda in Santa Fe. There, we’ll be sharing our film and message with legislators and the public. Find out more here.

We will continue to update our supporters about SB 268; please share our action alert (read here) with anyone you know who resides in New Mexico who you think would find this issue of interest.

And please accept my deepest gratitude for your support of our work to bring to light the persecution that coyotes and other predators face. Without your support, none of our campaigns to press for science-based conservation, stewardship and humane approaches to living with predators and other wildlife would be possible.

For the Wild,

Camilla H. Fox
Founder & Executive Director

21 Dead Horses Found at Horrifying Animal Death Trap

take-action-3

Petition Link –  https://animalpetitions.org/170228/justice-for-dozens-of-animals-allegedly-starved-to-death/

Target: Hon. Crystal Heinz, County Attorney for Trimble County, Kentucky

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly neglected dozens of animals on her property, resulting in the deaths of over 20.

Twelve malnourished horses and dozens of dead animals were found on a Kentucky pasture. They reportedly had no access to food. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

“You hear about it, and you don’t think it is going to happen in your area. Then once it comes across, it is a huge shock,” stated Dan Flinkfelt of Henry County Animal Control. Investigators searched the property after two dead horses were seen from the driveway. In total, they found 21 dead horses, along with dead alpacas, goats, rabbits, and cats. The 12 surviving horses appeared malnourished.

Marlena Robinson, the owner of the property, was charged with 54 counts of animal cruelty and 43 counts of improper disposal of a dead animal. The surviving horses are slowly recovering. Sign below and demand that Robinson receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

 

 

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Heinz,

Animal Control investigators found dozens of dead animals on a Bedford pasture. The surviving horses appeared severely malnourished. We demand justice for these innocent animals.

“It’s a mess. We found more than what we thought we would find,” stated Flinkfelt. A local rescue group took custody of the 12 malnourished horses found on Robinson’s property. They also found dozens of animal corpses, which were reportedly not disposed of properly. It is unknown how long the animals were without food.

Dozens of helpless animals suffered and died due to this alleged neglect. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
