96,000 murdered wild pigs because of a pig plague that never arrived!!

Hesse Environment Minister Mrs. Priska Hinz: “The higher the stock of wild boar, the faster the spread of the disease is possible. Therefore, it is still very important to keep the local wild boar density low throughout Germany, “said the Minister on May 26 at the State Hunters Day in Fulda, and cordially thanked the legal killers of the forest for done an unprecedented mass murder in the amount of 96,000 wild boars!

In the hunting season 2017/18, a record distance was achieved for wild boar: in Hesse, around 96,000 wild boars were killed, which represents an increase of around 30 percent over the previous year.

There are no more taboos on wild boar hunting for more than two decades, in Germany.

The number of “motor hunts” has increased in recent years. Forest owners, farmers’ associations and political leaders in the ministries are calling for intensive action against the alleged “pig pests”!

Germany – closed seasons are no longer respected and apply high premiums for killed pigs.




Yesterday, however, came an interesting message in the newspaper www.topagrar.com, which said:

“The Danish parliament has decided: The country wants to build a fence about 70 kilometers long against wild boars. He is to prevent wild boars from wandering from Schleswig-Holstein to Denmark. The fence is part of a package against African swine fever, which was agreed by the liberal-conservative minority government in Copenhagen and the supporting right-wing populist Danish People’s Party. Politicians fear, that migratory animals infected with the disease are threatening the billion-dollar pork industry in Denmark”.

A much better-informed guy about the african pest, Schleswig-Holstein’s Environment Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) criticized the Dane as a “politically difficult signal” … “So far, there were only cases of swine fever in Eastern Europe, in Germany is still no disease of a pig known”!!

Why then the mass murder of 96,000 living beings in his neighbor country Hesse?

Obviously, the one, the unsuspecting Mrs. Priska Hinz, did not know that not a single fattening pig in Germany leaves his concentration camps in his entire short life, and therefore does not come in contact with meadow and other wild pigss, and therefore the fattening pigs can not get the plague.

The other, the Mr. Robert Hack, regardless of the motives of his honesty, is annoyed by his neighbor’s improper “political deeds”, but forcibly forgets the senseless genocide from the gun of his Hesse neighbors to 96,000 creatures, which will go into the criminal history of hunters.

After all the crap that we read in the press every day, we come to the conclusion that even a pig pest proves to be an unfit competitor to the politician pest.

Best regards to all


UK: It Banned Fur Farming In 2000 – Now Will It Ban ALL Animal Fur Imports Into The UK ?




Is it ever ok for people to buy and wear fur?

Britain’s parliament is adding its voice to the discussion.

The UK’s top legislative body is debating a ban on the sale of animal fur, after a petition calling for an end to fur imports into the UK collected nearly 110,000 signatures, triggering today’s hearing.

Parliamentary debates don’t lead directly to changes in law, but they can influence decision-making and raise the profile of a campaign.

In this case, the campaign reflects a larger movement that seems to keep gaining momentum. In the past year, major fashion brands like Gucci, Michael Kors, and Versace have said that they’re no longer using fur in their collections. Meanwhile, the city of San Francisco banned all sales of fur, and both Norway and the Czech Republic announced plans to end fur farming in their countries. In the UK, London’s popular Camden market banned sales of fur as of March.

Opponents of fur believe that farming and trapping is cruel and unethical. At the same time, technology has produced faux furs so good that even the fanciest of luxury brands, such as Tom Ford, see them as viable substitutes—giving rise to the argument that, at this point, using fur is simply outdated. “Do you think using furs today is still modern?” Gucci CEO Marco Bizzari said to Business of Fashion last year (paywall) when talking about the company’s decision to stop using fur. “I don’t think it’s still modern and that’s the reason why we decided not to do that.”

Not all shoppers agree. In China and other parts of Asia, sales of fur items, such as coats, remain strong. There are still plenty of buyers for fur in places like Europe and the US, too, especially when the fur is used as a trim. Canada Goose parkas, with their hoods edged in coyote fur, are a common sight in the colder parts of America. And not long before Gucci ditched fur, it had a sales hit with its kangaroo-fur-lined loafers. They were one of the items that proved the brand was back on the upswing after its new creative director, Alessandro Michele, took over in 2015.

The UK itself prohibited fur farming in 2000, but still allows fur imports, which is where the dispute before Parliament now lies. The petition that prompted the debate says imports are coming from countries that aren’t safeguarding animals.

Mike Moser, CEO of the British Fur Trade Association, called it “seriously flawed,” in a statement issued by the group. The petition “erroneously states that much of the fur imported into the UK comes from countries ‘that have very weak or no animal welfare laws at all’ as justification for a fur import ban,” he said. “In fact, all fur farms, wherever they are, must be licensed by authorities and independently inspected in order to operate.”

But critics of the fur industry point to investigations that keep turning up cases of animal abuse, despite regulations. Last week, 50 veterinarians and animal behaviorists sent a letter (pdf) to Michael Gove, the UK’s secretary of state for environment, food, and rural affairs, saying there are “severe animal welfare deficiencies inherent to the fur trade.”

They supported Humane Society International UK’s call for a ban on fur imports to Britain.
