Austria: Corona regulations do not apply to hunters

 

Foreign hunting tenants are allowed to enter!

The strict entry requirements to Austria will remain in force until the end of May.

There are reliefs for nursing staff or for foreign tenants, for example. There are 300 territories in Tyrol that are leased to foreigners.

They do not have to show a certificate on entry (!!)
Basically, people who want to travel from abroad have to show a negative coronavirus test result that is not older than four days or they go into a 14-day quarantine.

Hunting tenants don’t have to be in quarantine!

These restrictions do not apply to commuters. And these restrictions are now no longer applicable to foreign tenants.

They do not need a medical certificate, nor do they need to be quarantined (!!!)

It is sufficient to submit a hunting lease contract or a contract for shooting wild animals.

There are 1,300 hunting areas in Tyrol, 300 of which are leased by foreigners. The relief has to do with the hunting season, which begins on May 15, according to the National Hunters’ Association.

It is about fulfilling the given shooting plan.

And I mean…Article 3 of human rights
(1) All people are equal before the law.

It looks like hunters have negotiated a special status with the legislature and are above the law.

Murder is murder, the systematically planned mass murder must be carried out.
This reminds us of similar “exceptions” in the Nazi era …

cemetery of living calves

All the atrocities of industrial agriculture have been summarized in one terrifying photo!

 

The image you see was not edited with Photoshop. It is a photo of Diane Scarazzini, an animal rights activist, and was taken in an intensive care facility in Oregon.

In each of these boxes is a calf that was taken away from its mother just a few hours after birth. Diane defines him as “doomed to die within a few weeks” when his meat is used and processed into tender steaks …

The calves were separated from their mother after birth, which means enormous stress for both the calf and the mother animal, which are closely linked.

 

Often, the mother screams for days after the separation to call her little one…

Male calves that cannot produce milk are doomed to end up on the meat market in intensive animal husbandry systems..

The cows spend their lives in a constant cycle of pregnancy, birth and milking. Milk was supposed to feed the little ones, but it is used to produce milk and cheese products.

My comment: Man is the only living being on earth who drinks the milk of another species. Milk is also baby food: Apart from humans, no other living being drinks milk after infancy. Many people do not tolerate milk at all. And yet they drink it because they fall victim to the milk mafia propaganda

Male calves are rated as collateral damage in the meat industry. Every year over 4 million calves are born in Germany. But only a few cow calves are needed for breeding – most are slaughtered at the age of only three to five months.

They are “goods” that nobody wants because they have only costs and no profit.

Factory farming is the other word for animal cruelty!

The animals bred for consumption are treated as goods, as numbers, and not as sentient beings who experience suffering and pain and grief. Cattle are usually castrated and dehorned without anesthesia.

The factory farming system was developed only a few decades ago, so animals did not always have to suffer this way – but today they do! because this planet now has over 7 billion meat eaters. And the environment suffers in the same way.

Nobody likes to deal with the issue of factory farming;  it is extremely uncomfortable, everyone wants his meat and milk, but it causes physical and mental pain to imagine (or even look at) what suffer the animals we eat.

And even in times of a pandemic, politics promise us a return to “normal”, even though today’s pandemic has arisen because everything in our consumption was not normal.

But it is necessary that we show it.
Because it takes courage and willingness to take risks, which (at the moment) very few do.

We will definitely fail if we continue as before.

My best regards to all, Venus

Dear Mark,

Chickens have spectacularly brightened our world here. We can all remember a few years ago (BC–Before Chickens) and I don’t think we could have imagined then how much joy, humor and atmosphere of busy activity they bring. When you enter their area, you’re surrounded by calves and sheep and goats vying to stand in your lap, or even on your back. But meanwhile, in the background, there is a flurry of various plots: big white rooster Tony is bothering big white rooster Merin; bright-feathered Spin is prancing with pride over the grub she nabbed in the shade; proud mother Spice is herding her fast-growing speckled brood. Our 15 rescued chickens celebrate their lives by enjoying their lives. You can see it and you can feel it. May 4th is Respect for Chickens Day and we love seeing the dust baths, the roosting on branches, the quarrels and love affairs, and the comfort they bring to each other’s lives. For loving them with us and helping provide the safe haven where they can flourish in their joy, thank you.

 

Olivia’s story is a simple rescue of a piglet with a wound in her neck. Her treatment and recovery are made sweeter by loving care from people, which she desperately needed because she is very young and we couldn’t find her mother. But there’s another story here–about her intelligence, humor, playfulness, and sensitivity. Qualities most pigs had at birth, but were never allowed to explore or develop. By the time you have finished watching this happy little 4-minute video, thousands of pigs will have been killed in the meat industry. Each of these individuals have qualities like Olivia’s. Each one wanted to think, to create, to play, to feel this magical earth beneath her little toes, just like Olivia is doing now. #EveryPigIsOlivia

Angelo is a bull who we found in excruciating pain with multiple ropes digging through the flesh of his front leg clear to the bone. Someone had tied his leg to his horns–a devastating technique to keep cows from running away. Usually a single rope is tied, and you often see cows crouched and hobbling down the roads with their heads bent low. You can almost feel the horrendous neck strain. In Angelo’s case, the abuse was compounded with time and with the extra shortness of the rope. But although his only experience with human hands had been to suffer human cruelty, Angelo radiated sweetness. Even during daily wound dressings that must have sometimes been painful, he seemed to understand that we were trying our best to help him.

Let’s turn cruelty to kindness. Donate today.

When Nandini applied to work here, she was so keen on helping animals that she said “I’ll do virtually anything.” With degrees in philosophy and natural resource governance, her interest in literature and her unusual grace with people, Nandini was a natural to serve as a community relations officer. Meeting with government officials on cruelty cases and other matters, families thinking about adopting a pet, volunteers and guests, she always inspires in people a deepened commitment to helping vulnerable animals. We feel so lucky to have Nandini on the team.

 

 

Zeus was hiding in a sewer because he may have instinctively thought cold water would bring down his terrible pain from a head wound. Many dogs will do this when their pain is overwhelming. We reached in and carried him to safety, where we could begin the thorough cleaning and bandaging that would save this sweetheart’s life. Thank you for transforming Zeus from hurt to healed. You also turned deep sadness to sweet happiness.

Tomorrow’s another day of rescue — please donate

 

 

 

US: Brooks Brothers bans exotic skins

After hearing from PETA, Brooks Brothers—the oldest retailer in the country—confirmed that it has stopped ordering products made of exotic-animal skins!

To show our gratitude for making a compassionate change, PETA sent the company a box of delicious vegan chocolates.

The decision means a huge victory for animals used for their skins. In the exotic-animal trade, sensitive alligators and crocodiles are kept in dank pools and barren, concrete pits while snakes and others are kept in dirty, crowded cages that are stacked on top of one another—creating a breeding ground for many pathogens, including zoonotic ones (those that can be passed on to humans) such as salmonella, E. coli, and West Nile virus. Filthy, cramped conditions such as these are similar to the ones in the “wet market” where scientists believe the virus that caused the COVID-19 outbreak originated.

Just like humans, these animals experience fear and pain and want to be free. Crocodiles communicate with each other using a complex series of vocalizations, and alligators spend years raising their babies.

These fascinating animals want to enjoy life, not be confined to cages and killed for their skin.

Brooks Brothers—which stopped purchasing mohair in 2018 in response to PETA Asia’s investigation of angora goat farms in South Africajoins Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, HUGO BOSS, Victoria Beckham, Vivienne Westwood, and many others in banning exotic skins.

And I mean…It is a nice feeling when you turn on the computer in the morning and don`t  read horror reports about animals, but appears a little success.

We are happy about this decision by the fashion company Brooks Brothers, we say thank you, and hope that soon any fashion company will no longer cooperate with the bloody animal farms of this world.
Small steps often have big effects.

We will continue to fight for the abolition of animal cruelty, we have promised it the animals.

My best regards to all, Venus
