Nobody stays behind: Firefighter rescues cat after smoke poisoning before death!


A firefighter in Russia became a social media hero after Civil Protection released footage about him reanimating a lifeless cat.
These he had saved minutes before from a terrible fire.


Thirty-five people and two pets of the historic building were rescued earlier this week in Tver, a city about 160 kilometers northeast of Moscow.

The fur ball suffered serious smoke poisoning when the firefighters managed to rescue it via an escape route.

The images show one of the helpers cleaning the cat’s face with water from a puddle and using his airpack – the respirator used in heavy smoke – to oxygenate the animal.

Fortunately, the resuscitation succeeded, and after about seven minutes, the cat was regained consciousness despite the ordeal.

A photo taken at the scene of the fire shows it lying on a sofa.


Firefighter Andrey Meister told local media that he and his crew found the cat looking for survivors right after they broke into a third floor apartment in the building.


The fire in the historic district, referred to by locals as “Morozov’s City”, occurred on Tuesday.

The city’s emergency services dispatched 19 fire trucks in response to the fire, and all residents were successfully evacuated without loss.

Another pet that was also rescued during the mission was a dog.



South Africa: Live Export – NSPCA lays criminal complaint against ‘sheep ship’ stakeholders.

NSPCA lays criminal complaint against ‘sheep ship’ stakeholders

The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) has laid a criminal complaint against stakeholders involved in the controversial export of 60,000 live sheep from East London to Kuwait last month.

The complaint, announced by the NSPCA in a statement on Thursday afternoon, is made against the department of agriculture, land reform and rural development, the Eastern Cape department of rural development and agrarian reform, Al Mawashi, the owners of the Al Shuwaikh vessel, the captain of the Al Shuwaikh, the Page Farming Trust and individuals from the Page Farming Trust.

The NSPCA believes these stakeholders contravened the Animal Protection Act.

“Our pleas to treat the animals humanely fell on deaf ears,” said Grace de Lange, manager of the NSPCA’s farm animal protection unit.

“Seeing the suffering of these sheep even before their departure, and watching the Al-Shuwaikh depart was heartbreaking, but it has also affirmed the NSPCA’s determination to advocate for justice on their behalf.”

De Lange said the NSPCA had received criticism that it had taken too long to lay the complaint.

“Preparing separate dockets for the feedlot, the harbour and the vessel carrying the sheep has involved the collation of valuable evidence from 15 staff members. Carefully completed dockets with the relevant evidence have been handed over to the South African Police Services who will now only be required to obtain statements from the accused”.

The intention was not only to ensure that the Al-Shuwaikh did not return to South African shores, but also to challenge the issue of exporting live animals by sea.




And the real holocaust continues…


Nothing to see here: Rivers along Korean border run red with blood after massive pig cull.

Heavy rainfall has been blamed for the spread of vast amounts of pig’s blood into rivers along the Korean border this week, following a cull of some 47,000 hogs amid an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF).

“It made many people living in the area anxious and worried,” said Lee Seok-woo, who heads the NGO Yeoncheon Imjin River Civic Network.

A local NGO claims that blood from a nearby burial site, where some 47,000 pig carcasses had been disposed of, had seeped into the Imjin River due to heavy rainfall.

South Korean authorities claim that the pigs had already been disinfected before being slaughtered and that there was a delay in the production of plastic containers for the carcasses.

“What was also hard to endure was the odor. I heard many farmers couldn’t work because of the unbearable smell. This should not have happened”  said Lee Seok-Woo.

South Korea has culled around 380,000 pigs since the recent outbreak of ASF began. There is currently no antidote or vaccine for the complex disease, which has ravaged swine herds across Asia and upended markets as a result.

African swine fever is not harmful to humans but highly infectious and almost 100 percent fatal in pigs.

For its part, Seoul claims that the blood flowing into the streams had been “dealt with properly” through the use of suction pumps and various other devices. Authorities claim the local water table and potable supply has not been tainted.

“We have built banks and other facilities so that the polluted water does not flow into the downstream region,” the ministry said, adding:

“As of now, there is no blood in the stream.”

Quarter of world pig population could be wiped out this year alone, animal health expert warns.



My comment: 836,865 wild boars were killed in the hunting season 2017/2018 in Germany, 42 percent more than in the previous year.
There have even been premiums per pig’s head, about 60 euros.

For a disease that has not yet occurred in Germany.
For a disease that is 100% safe for human animals.

A massacre, which soon leads to the extinction of wild boars, so that man protects his breeding animals.
Squaring the circle, means that.

China laments that it will lose half of its herds due to the fever by the end of 2019 (which would result in a significant decline in the size of total EU pork production).

So far, China has pre-emptively culled 1 million pigs due to African swine fever.

The known propagation pathways of African swine fever are not wild boars as carriers, but hunting tourists and meat consumers who leave contaminated food leftovers in the landscape. Boars are now looking for food in the dumpster of the parking lots and so the disease is predominantly spread.

But the majority of the media around the world is on the meat mafia side and focusing the importance of the South Korean massacre on public health threats rather than on a mass murder, committed on behalf of a criminal economy and consumer society.

This means that once there is no animal blood flowing into the rivers and violence becomes invisible again, the matter is cleared, and this fascist system continues its Animals Holocaust undisturbed.

And not only in South Korea.

Venice: disaster as punishment.


A flood of the century destroys Venice. The mayor of the lagoon city wants to declare a state of emergency and warns about climate change.
“Venice was brought to its knees,” tweets Mayor Luigi Brugnaro.



“Many of these cultural sites will slowly disappear with sea-level rise, even though they are important parts of human history”, say climate researchers.



St. Mark’s Basilica suffered severe damage, as did the whole city.

80 percent of the city would be under water, there would be “unimaginable damage”.
Venice has been threatened by rising sea levels for years.

It was only a year ago, when it was said from Italy, that a storm had already claimed twelve lives in Italy and damaged cultural assets in Venice.

But this is what happens to almost all historical sites near the Mediterranean coast, according to a recent study examining 49 World Heritage sites in the Mediterranean.

The flood is the sixth in the millennial history of the basilica, and it has never been as bad as it is now.

According to the current study, the most endangered areas include the city of Venice, the medieval city of Rhodes, the old town of Dubrovnik and the ruins of Carthage in Tunisia.



Climate researchers predict that flooding will continue to increase due to climate change, with surveys showing that sea levels around Venice are rising significantly faster than the global average, with average levels increasing by up to 6.6 millimeters per year between 1993 and 2015. “

“We will lose Venice, that is not controversial,” said Anders Levermann of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research a year ago.

“What we definitely know: Events like now in Venice are being intensified by global warming,” said Levermann.

“When oceans warm up, more water evaporates into the atmosphere and it has to go out again. This creates more rainfall for the whole globe.

At the same time, heavy rainfall events are piling up. “Due to CO2 emissions, Venice will in future be below sea level.

“That’s why it’s crucial what we do about it now and in the future.”




My comment:

Yes, I find it very interesting from time to time when we experience the consequences of climate destruction in our own country, in our own homes, in our own skin.
It hurts, yes!
I think it’s very fair.

As soon as we, human animals experience the consequences of the devastation and destruction of this planet in front of their own door, the state of emergency is called.

Until then, we have lived with the idiotic illusion, it only affects the Brazilians when the Amazon forests burn, and these Asians .. well! they should also stop burning the rainforest for profit … and so .. there are always those, the others down, who are ruining our climate. We up here are just the victims!

Compared to the daily devastation of life, the houses, the families of the orangutans in the rainforest for palm plantations, for which WE ARE ALL to blame, the devastation of the Venetian World Heritage is far more insignificant to me.


Finally, our indifference, the bankruptcy of our moral culture heritage is the cause of this catastrophe, which we humans, an extremely infantile and harmful species, displace and dramatize to their own needs.

My best regards to all, Venus
