We love all animals, big and small

Today is World Bee Day 🐝🐝


A dear animal rights activist found an exhausted WASP just today, and had to help her, that was not planned for World Bee Day 😅!

It wobbled and kept falling over.
The animal quickly recovered with a little sugar water.

After strengthening, the wasp cleaned itself quickly ..
and then it flew away 🐝

That’s how nature is – always good for a surprise!



Thanks to everyone who loves even the smallest animals.

England: Stadium confirms end of greyhound racing in Peterborough after 75 years.

Stadium confirms end of greyhound racing in Peterborough after 75 years

The final lap of greyhound racing has been completed after the city’s stadium confirmed there would be no more racing there – even after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

The stadium owners confirmed the decision today, due to the financial pressures partially caused by the current pandemic.

In a statement, a spokesman for the stadium said: ““After much careful thought and consideration, and after 75 years, the Perkins family have decided to cease trading as a greyhound racing stadium with immediate effect.

“We are an evening greyhound racing venue and rely heavily on income from customers attending the venue to eat, drink, and bet (on our Tote) to survive. Without the substantial number of visitors we have experienced in the run up to the current Coronavirus outbreak, and the prospect of this not being achieved in even the longer term as social distancing measures remain in place, the long- term viability of continuing to trade from the site as a greyhound racing stadium is unsustainable.

“This is a decision that has not been taken lightly and has been taken in conjunction with and on the advice of our accountants. Long term, we are advised that the site cannot make a sufficient return to continue operating profitably as a greyhound racing stadium.

“So, it is with a heavy heart that the Perkins family would like to thank all greyhound owners and trainers, past and present, who have been attached to the stadium over the years for their support. We would also like to thank all those patrons who have visited and enjoyed a night`s racing with us over the years.

“The company remains active, and we are looking at other opportunities.”

Mark Bird, managing director of the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) said; “We are extremely saddened to hear the news that Peterborough Greyhound Stadium is to close.

“It is a long established, family run track run by the Perkins Family since 1945 that has served its community throughout all that time and holds incredible, long lasting memories for racing fans throughout the country.

“The news clearly makes it a bittersweet week for our sport, as we have welcomed a safe return to trialling at many of our tracks and turned a corner since the start of this pandemic.

“We have also, of course, had the announcement that greyhound racing will shortly be returning to Towcester which is such a positive signal for the future of our sport.

“Our thoughts and best wishes are obviously with all those associated with the stadium at this incredibly difficult time. The ongoing situation with coronavirus is taking a significant toll on all sport, hospitality and leisure businesses which rely on spectators for their income.

“At GBGB, we will continue to provide whatever support we can, in particular to those trainers and owners affected. We will shortly be contacting all Peterborough attached trainers to check on their position moving forward.”




SIGN: Stop Horrifying Proposal to List Elephants As ‘Meat’




SIGN: Stop Horrifying Proposal to List Elephants As ‘Meat’

Petition link – https://ladyfreethinker.org/sign-stop-south-africa-from-classifying-elephants-rhinos-and-other-endangered-species-as-meat/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email


PETITION TARGET: Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development Angela Thoko Didiza

In a devastating setback for animal conservation, elephants, rhinos and other endangered animals on the brink of extinction could be list as “meat” in a proposed legislative amendment in South Africa.

These animals, along with giraffes, hippos, zebras, and even the critically endangered white antelope, could soon be added to the Meat Safety Act. A vast array of wildlife would be viewed as food rather than the majestic, sentient creatures they are.

“South Africa is preparing to expand and intensify captive breeding of wild species and sell their meat in the food markets,” according to the African Conservation Foundation. “The proposal is to expand the number of non-domestic but edible species ‘that can be slaughtered as food for humans or for animal consumption.’”

Killing and eating wild, endangered and threatened animals isn’t just cruel and reckless — it poses a serious risk to human health, as the coronavirus pandemic clearly demonstrates. Wild animals carry a host of zoonotic diseases that can — and do — jump to humans and spread rapidly throughout our own populations. Elephants alone can spread tuberculosis, anthrax and salmonella, potentially sickening and killing any humans they come in contact with.

We must send a clear message to the government of South Africa: endangered animals are NOT food.

Sign this petition urging the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Angela Thoko Didiza, to halt this terrible amendment, preventing the slaughter and consumption of some of South Africa’s most rare and wonderful animals and potentially saving humans from another global tragedy.


the happy life of Ferdinand

Do you remember Ferdinand?

It was the young bull who managed to jump out of his killing box on the way to the slaughterhouse and escape into the forest.




Erdlingshof employees bought the animal and started a two-week fishing campaign with two bait cattle.
Ferdinand is in this wonderful courtyard today and here is the current video and report about his new life:



“Ferdinand has been on the “Erdlingshof ”  for 2.5 weeks now. And he already has so much trust in us that we wonder how it can be after everything he has already gone through.

🐮😢 We are overjoyed that he gives us his love and trust and even lies on the floor with Johannes as if it were the most normal thing in the world. 😲

❤ Ferdinand, we are so happy that you managed to escape death in the slaughterhouse and hope that your story will open many hearts! 🙏”

I think...There is nothing better than watching happy animals!


My best regards to all, Venus


Spain: stop the executions of galgos


Watch this video and share as much as possible … the world needs to know that this is still happening.

Abuse and killing of galgos must stop !!


Lax laws allow this practice to be maintained.

After the hunting season, galgos and podencos are still slain, hung up, thrown into wells, tied up somewhere where they starve, thrown alive in crevices or disposed of in some other bestial way.

It’s the damn hunters who use these practices.


For more…at: https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2020/05/20/spain-stop-the-executions-of-galgos/


And I mean…It is important to know that every Spanish autonomy has its own animal protection laws.

Other regions may also come up with the idea of excluding hunting dogs from animal welfare, just as bullfighting -as a tradition- is also excluded from animal welfare at EU level. (On November 7, 2013, bullfighting was declared as cultural heritage in Spain, thus legally protecting this bloody slaughter).

Hunting is a hobby for psychopaths that is run by the circles of governments, judges, lawyers, doctors and other financially well-protected sadists and moves millions of euros annually.

But Spain also has many animal welfare organizations and animal rights activists who save as many dogs as possible each year.

We would like to thank them from here for their great work and we wish them a lot of strength in their tough fight.


Spanish writer Chesús Yuste delivered a moving speech about this tragedy in Madrid in 2018.

He complains of animal abuse, speaks of shelters that collapse due to the large number of abandoned dogs, and above all he complains about the impunity of hunters who abuse their animals and a society that ignores these crimes.

Excerpt from Chesús Yuste’s speech:

“The government must act immediately. The Galgos tragedy must be history. And when that day comes, it will come thanks to the work of many people in many communities who do things big and small.

Organizing demonstrations by activists who use it to expose the crimes of hunting, document them in films, spread the message and provide them on social networks, the people who offer rescue and home for these dogs and do a thousand other things.
On behalf of the animals, let me thank them for that.

Friends, friends! As Víctor Hugo said: “There is nothing stronger than an idea whose time has come”.

Have no doubt.

If the 19th century was the end of human slavery and the 20th century was equal rights for women, we are absolutely convinced that the 21st century will be the recognition of animal rights.

We are working to achieve this. We will all make it together.

We’ll all make it together “.

My best regards to all, Venus
