USA: Petition – Punish the man who allegedly baited wildlife with a razorblade and peanut butter.

Punish Man Accused of Baiting Wildlife With Razorblades and Peanut Butter


Petition link – 

Target: Michael O’Keefe, District Attorney for Falmouth, Massachusetts

Goal: Punish the man who allegedly baited wildlife with a razorblade and peanut butter.

A cruel wildlife trap, containing a razorblade surrounded by peanut butter, was reportedly set at a public park. The trap attracted numerous small mammals, police stated, putting them at risk of injury and death. Demand justice in this case.

Town and state Environmental Police began investigating after they received reports of a tree with a razorblade sticking out of its truck at a public park. Upon closer inspection, they apparently discovered that the blade was surrounded by peanut butter in an attempt to attract local wildlife. Officers stated that multiple squirrels fell victim to the trap, though their injuries were not documented, and children played in the trap’s vicinity. The suspect claimed that he was trying to attract local wildlife, per reports, and a thorough search turned up no additional traps.

Sixty-five-year-old Brian McGrath was charged with animal cruelty, reckless behavior, and wanton injuries to trees. Sign below to demand that he receive the maximum penalty possible, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney O’Keefe,

Multiple animals reportedly fell victim to a cruel trap set at Goodwill Park, leading to charges of animal cruelty and wanton injuries to trees. Per officers, 65-year-old Brian McGrath placed a razorblade in a tree and smeared the area with peanut butter with the intent to attract local wildlife. It worked, per reports, and several squirrels suffered in the process. Children also apparently played in close proximity to the trap, meaning that they were also at risk of injury.

Anyone who could set such a cruel and painful trap is a danger to local animals and they must be punished. I demand that you prosecute this suspect and seek the maximum penalty possible, if he is convicted.

Wales: Animal Aid (England) Expose ‘Farmers Fresh’ Slaughterhouses In Undercover Operation.

Breaking: Our covert cameras capture appalling scenes of slaughterhouse incompetence and chaos at Farmers Fresh, Wales

Posted on the 2nd September 2019

This is the 16th slaughterhouse in which we have filmed, but the first one located in Wales. Once again, we have brought to light evidence of blatant staff incompetence and brutal treatment of animals.

This was further amplified by an extremely fast paced slaughter-line. Investigators filmed in Spring and Summer of this year.

We brought to light many concerning issues including workers pinning down and cutting the throat of a sheep who appears fully conscious, and a stun-man picking up a sheep by her fleece and neck and hurling her down the slaughter conveyer line, whilst shouting. Another worker grabbed sheep by their throats or fleeces and threw them backwards into the conveyer, often with an audible crash.

We believe this provides vital evidence that makes the case for mandatory CCTV to be introduced across Welsh slaughterhouses to bring Wales in line with England and plans proposed for Scotland.

Without our covert cameras in place, this horrendous situation may have continued, unchecked for some time. Join us in calling on the Welsh government to introduce independently monitored mandatory CCTV without delay across Wales.

England: Teen left blind and deaf after living off crisps, chips and white bread.

Teen left blind and deaf after living off crisps, chips and white bread

The unnamed youngster admitted avoiding fruit and vegetables since primary school because he did not like the textures.

A teenager who for years had lived off a diet of chips, crisps, white bread and processed meat has lost his hearing and sight because of a lack of vitamins and minerals.

The unnamed boy from Bristol had first gone to his doctor complaining of tiredness when he was 14.

Tests showed that he had low vitamin B12 levels and macrocytic anaemia – a condition bringing larger-than-normal red blood cells. It was said the ailments had been brought on by him being a “fussy eater”.

A case report by researchers from Bristol Eye Hospital, published in in the Annals of Internal Medicine, said he was given B12 injections and dietary advice, but when he returned to the doctor a year later his hearing and vision were already impaired.

The report said that “by the age of 17, the patient’s vision had become progressively worse, to the point of blindness”.

It was at this point that he confessed that since primary school he had “avoided foods with certain textures and only ate French fries, Pringles, white bread, processed ham slices, and sausage”.

“By the time his condition was diagnosed, the patient had permanently impaired vision,” the report said.
