Argos is still under treatment, he’s being given injections at the vet’s every day while two different kinds of eye drops are being used locally. The vet is very satisfied with the kitten’s recovery, as a huge hematoma behind his eyes has reduced in size, his left eye’s totally cleared up now and his broken jaw is healing nicely. Unfortunately, his right eye is lost forever.

Germany: Environment Committee Decides In Paliament – There Will Be No Ban On Wild Animals Being Used In The Circus.

http://www.abendzeitung-muenchen.de/inhalt.umweltausschuss-entscheidet-bundestag-kein-verbot-von-wildtieren-im-zirkus.1106ecac-4321-4917-afc3-b66f90afa56b.html 

Environment committee decides in Parliament: No ban on wild animals in the circus

 

The hope of animal rights activists has thus shattered: There will be no ban on wild animals in the circus. Who voted against? Strong setback for animal friends: lion, elephant and zebra stay in the arena.

The environmental committee of the German parliament rejected yesterday the request of the left to ban wild animals from the circus. Despite the clear majority of the SPD, the Greens and the left in the committee, which all plead in their programs for a ban on wildlife, the application was rejected.

Surprisingly, the SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany) voted against the ban. According to representative surveys, however, the majority of the population is behind a ban, as the animal protection organization “Animals United” confirms.

Now the association wants to mobilize more protests for an animal-free circus.

Viktor Gebhart of “Animals United”: “Especially from the SPD, which over the past years has repeatedly made a ban, the animal friends had expected more nationwide, but the SPD fell today in their back. That is an animal welfare scandal and a clear break with the party’s own conviction, which today had the power to put an end to animal cruelty in the Manege, “he says.

My comment to this:

And so we, who fight for the rights of the animals, are once again betrayed by politics.

The SPD with the party chairman, the illiterate Martin Schultz, has no chance in the next elections. But that will not help, because the CDU (the Conservatives) are not better and will remain in power.

In short: ideology and color in politics are different – at best – only when it comes to people. When it comes to animals, prevails unanimity in slavery, exploitation, and animal suffering!

Best Regards to you Dear Mark and all,
