Germany: and its psychopaths

 

 

More than 30 animals died in the fire on New Year’s Eve in Krefeld Zoo.
That was on New Year’s Eve, and we have reported about it  https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2020/01/01/germany-30-inmates-burned-alive-in-zoo/

Only now does it come out that an injured animal was killed by a police officer with a submachine gun. With multiple shots, it was Massa.

 

 

After the fire in the Krefeld zoo on New Year’s night, there were previously unknown, dramatic scenes: a seriously injured gorilla had to be killed by a police officer in the morning by several shots from a submachine gun because the veterinarian was unable to put the animal to sleep.

This emerges from a report by the Interior Ministry to the North Rhine-Westphalian state parliament.

The police have now justified the fatal shot as necessary.

In a message, it says: “Our colleagues were not only authorized to kill the animal by shot, but also obliged to do so.”

Otherwise, the officials could have made themselves punishable under the Animal Welfare Act. As the zoo announced on Wednesday, a veterinarian had put two other seriously injured animals to sleep.

Anesthetic did not work with gorilla

“Because of the severity of the burn injuries with extensive skin damage, the anesthetic did not fully develop in a male gorilla, so the fastest redemption of the animal by shot with the help of the police was the ultimate ratio,” said the zoo.

The zoo did not say which animal it was. It was Massa!

 

 

The zoo director was already familiar with the events at the first press conference on New Year’s Day.
“For the emotional protection of the people involved (veterinarian, zookeeper, police) it was decided jointly with the authorities involved not to communicate this information,” said the zoo in the message.

The fire in the monkey house killed more than 30 animals. Two chimpanzees survived injured. According to a message from the zoo in early January, they are on the mend.

 

“Immense emotional stress” (!!!)

According to the Interior Ministry, police officers had already posted around the monkey house with submachine guns during the fire to stop injured or panicked animals to protect the emergency services. This did not happen.

According to the report, the rescuers assumed that all animals were dead. Around 8:00 a.m., two seriously injured animals were found, of which the veterinarian put an orangutan female to sleep.

The officer killed the gorilla after being released by the police leader.

With the 34-year-old shooter, several intensive talks were held in the following days out of care, the report goes on to the state parliament. “The report by the Ministry of the Interior only gives an idea of ​​how stressful the effort must have been for the fire, rescue and police forces and the zoo staff,” said Verena Schäffer, the Green Party spokeswoman for the Greens.

In fact, the “emotional strain on all emergency workers and zoo staff was immense,” (!!!) the report said.

“During and after the assignment, the emergency services and staff were offered psychological support.”

Meanwhile we read in the press: “Krefeld Zoo opens again after the tragedy”!

My comment: The animals have no escape route, they were locked up and were therefore burned alive when the fire broke out. There was no fire extinguishing system.

Armed forces were waiting outside to shoot them, who would find an escape route.

An incapable veterinary doctor is unable to put a gorilla to sleep, in Germany today and here in 2020!
But our police was able to kill defenseless animals in cold blood.

Reporting is beginning to take on ridiculous features. What’s next? Why this information now? What should that tell us?

That the police officer is unable to work due to a post-traumatic stress disorder, and is therefore sent to Majorca to do dolphin therapy ???

After this tragedy, everyone has serious thoughts and worries about the enormous proportion of psychopaths in the police force.

By the way, these psychopats are supported by a perpetrator-friendly “Cretin Society”, who feed this prison with their money and visits, and can’t wait to visit the surviving inmates of the zoo again.

 

My best regards to all, Venus

 

England: Victory ! – King’s College London has become the first university to declare an end to the cruel forced swim test.

England

 

Big result ! – well done people, your voices and protests are being heard – WAV.

 

We have wonderful news to share with you!

King’s College London has become the first university to declare an end to the cruel forced swim test, in which mice and other small animals are subjected to a terrifying near-drowning experience.

This news comes after PETA provided King’s with evidence that use of the test has repeatedly wasted animals’ lives, public funds, and research hours – all of which screams bad science.

King’s joins Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, AbbVie, Roche, AstraZeneca, and other top pharmaceutical companies in banning the forced swim test after talks with PETA or our affiliates.

But pharma giant Eli Lilly is refusing to commit to banning these cruel experiments. Please tell the company that nearly drowning small animals has no place in drug development:

Urge Pharmaceutical Giant Eli Lilly to Ban the Near-Drowning of Animals

The “forced swim test” is a widely used experiment that’s as cruel as it is worthless.

Experimenters put mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, or gerbils in inescapable containers filled with water. The panicked animals try to escape by attempting to climb up the sides of the beakers or even by diving underwater in search of an exit. They paddle furiously, desperately trying to keep their heads above water. Eventually, they’ll start to float.

Some pharmaceutical companies have used the test when developing treatments for depression, even though it has been shown that it doesn’t accurately predict whether a drug will work as a human antidepressant.

The forced swim test is bad science. It does nothing more than terrify animals and delay the development of effective new treatments for depression that are so desperately needed. After discussions with PETA US, AstraZeneca, Novo Nordisk, AbbVie and Johnson & Johnson announced that they’ll no longer conduct or fund this cruel test. Roche also stated it has discontinued its use of forced swim tests after hearing from PETA US, PETA Switzerland, and PETA Germany.

Take Action Now!

Pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly are refusing to commit to banning it. Tell them what you think about that by taking action below.

USA: One of America’s Largest Dairy Companies Has Filed for Bankruptcy.

One of America’s Largest Dairy Companies Has Filed for Bankruptcy

Borden Files for Bankruptcy

One of the oldest and largest dairy companies in the United States, Borden Dairy has filed for bankruptcy—saying it has been hurt by the staggering drop in consumption of cow’s milk. Here’s the scoop.

By Hannah Bugga January 13, 2020

One of the oldest and largest dairy companies in the United States, Borden Dairy has filed for bankruptcy. With a history dating back to before the American Civil War, Borden says it has been hurt by the staggering drop in consumption of cow’s milk.

As people become more aware of the negative health and environmental effects of dairy, they’re consuming less cow’s milk and turning instead to all the delicious plant-based milk on the market. As a result, the number of producers of cow’s milk is dwindling, increasing the wholesale cost of cow’s milk. Last year, more than 2,700 dairy farms went out of business, and since 1992, 94,000 dairy farms have stopped producing milk. Borden Dairy CEO Tony Sarsam said in a statement

Despite our numerous achievements during the past 18 months, the company continues to be impacted by the rising cost of raw milk and market challenges facing the dairy industry

Borden isn’t the first major dairy company to fall on hard times. In November 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Owner of familiar dairy brands Dairy Pure, Organic Valley, and Land O’Lakes, the 94-year-old company and largest milk producer in America blamed the “accelerated decline in the conventional white milk category.”

While Borden and Dean Foods struggle against the country’s shift away from dairy, other companies are adapting. Known as the “oldest dairy west of the Rockies,” Giacomazzi Dairy recently sold the last of its cows to focus on growing almonds. Manager Dino Giacomazzi said in an interview:

Our facility is very old and inefficient to operate so we had to make a decision about investing in upgrading the facility and doubling the size of the milk cow herd or doing something else, and basically, we decided we were going to invest in our land and plant more almond trees and just continue farming without the cows.

Cows used for dairy are treated like mere milk-producing machines—constantly cycling through pregnancy, birth, and milking until their bodies give out or their milk production is no longer profitable.

Australia: What Faith In Lobbyist Leadership ?

I think the vast majority of the planets citizens now know what a complete ignorant fool Scott Morrison is – bowing to the lobbyists and coal mining industries, whilst largely ignoring the evidence provided by ecologists, environmentalists, naturalists, protectors of the environment and animal welfare organisations. Well, now he has a problem in Australia; and he and his government are the root cause of it.

Morrison and his government will go down in history – not for the good things (are there any ?) that they have done; but for the fact that their policies have led to Australia experiencing the worst fires in its history – destroying the homes and estates of countless Australian citizens as well as being responsible for the total destruction of an ecosystem and the animals in it – maybe 1 Billion by now !! – all because him and his cronies that he calls ‘a government’ want to sit there and pose with lumps of coal.

Are we not also witnessing this with other (lets not call them) leaders of the world’s nations – ‘Trump Digs Coal’ for example. Maybe his paybacks are waiting in the wings at this very moment !

The saddest part of all this is that just a few dimwits at the top – people who ‘we’ are supposed to put our trusts in to protect and listen to us, are failing to both protect and listen; and as a result; they are destroying the planet and its inhabitants ‘for all mankind’.

Morrison we detest you – you are an eco terrorist of universal magnitude; and hopefully when all this is over, if it will ever be; the Australian people will have the balls to erect a huge monument to you and your failures outside of the national government HQ; so that all can see what happens when an ignoramus and his lobbyists ignore all the evidence presented to them; and only put their own self interests ahead of this.

Have a look at a few of our recent posts – ignoring what the rest of the worlds press and media have to say about it all !

Below is an e mail that has just arrived at the office. They are not our words; but we repeat the entire mail and links for you to read. We think that a lot of this is very true – what about you ? – if you do, then please support the petition – Note: it CAN be signed by non Australians (such as ourselves) who wish to be a voice for the innocent peoples and animals of Australia. Here below is the mail in full:

Thinking of the good folk of Australia; and very much thinking about the millions of animals now dead due to asshole regulations by an asshole so called ‘government.

Regards Mark.

Dear Mark,

Scott Morrison is failing to address climate change, failing to lead and failing to keep us safe. He physically turned his back on people in fire ravaged communities.

Now he’s turning his back on renewable energy – by watering down the Renewable Energy Target and letting the Australian Renewable Energy Agency run out of money.

After public pressure from bushfire survivors, emergency service leaders, and GetUp members, Morrison says he wants to “evolve” his position on climate change1at the same time his government is quietly killing off support for renewable energy.

We can’t let him get away with this bait and switch.

The very fact that Morrison is acknowledging the role of climate change in the bushfires shows he’s feeling the pressure. So if we call out his hypocrisy now we can force his hand to save these critical supports for renewable energy.

Sign the petition asking your MP to stand for renewable energy and climate action in this time of crisis.

Morrison’s excuses are crumbling.

He says he wants to take “practical steps” to help people. But the most practical thing to do when faced with a national emergency is to stop making things worse.

While the country burns, the Coalition is letting Australia’s only renewable energy agency run out of money, and undermining our international obligations with dodgy accounting tricks.2

Meanwhile, they continue to subsidise the fossil fuel industry to the tune of $29 billion dollars3 – effectively paying for the emergency they say they want to address.

But the Liberals are divided, the Murdoch press is on the backfoot, and everyone from state governments to global hedge funds are calling for significant government action.

If we can translate the anger and frustration we’re feeling right now into a set of clear and common sense demands – we can raise the bar on Morrison’s climate concession.

Make your demands clear – sign the petition now!

This bushfire season has been relentless. It’s taken 27 lives, destroyed thousands of homes, and shuttered countless farms and small businesses. It’s also killed billions of native animals, and destroyed the habitats they rely on.

We can’t expect this government to keep us safe – but they should stop endangering us by:

  1. Adopting a more ambitious Renewable Energy Target

  2. Extending and expanding funding for the Australian Renewable Energy Agency

  3. Ending subsidies for fossil fuel corporations that are contributing to the national emergency we’re in

Add your name to call out Morrison’s hypocrisy.

The time for excuses is over. This needs to be a moment of reflection, and commitment from Federal Liberal MP’s – if they believe the science, they should prove it with action.

In determination,
– for the GetUp team
