Animals bred for hunting

Hunters like to call themselves conservationists and often claim that they take care of nature and the animals in their territory.

The fact that hunters kill wild animals is inherently contradictory – but did you know that animals are even bred specifically for hunting and then released so that hunters can shoot them as live targets during hunts?

Pheasants offered on eBay for 10 euros to kill

This is common practice when hunting pheasants, ducks, and partridges.
Hunters buy the animals and release them to kill before hunting.

For example, pheasants can be bought for 10 to 20 euros on eBay or in pheasant shops, where thousands of them are bred in a confined space.

On some websites, the animals are offered depending on the season at a unit price of 10 to 14 euros. Even more macabre: When purchasing larger quantities, there is often a discount of up to 50%.

It also often happens that animals are shot but not immediately killed.

They then flee in panic, with gunshot wounds on the body or on the wings, until they succumb to their injuries and die after several days of agony.

And I mean…EVERYTHING that hunters do, no matter what they say and what they actually do, serves only ONE goal:  to preserve the hunt!
Hunting is a murderous hobby. No more, no less!

NO hunter in Europe has been forced to hunt.
Especially here in Germany, nobody is forced to lease a hunting ground and no one is forced to take part in a hunt for a fee.
Those who hunt kill for pure pleasure.

What state of mind can I expect from someone who cowardly shoots an animal from the ambush while it is eating, although he does not need his flesh and skin for life at all and then he calls it  “hobby”, “nature conservation”, “species protection”, “disease protection” or “tradition”?

So if a hunter stands here and claims to be a conservationist, he is lying.
Hunters want to kill. No more and no less!

How is it possible that these situations continue to happen?

Portugal, 17.03.2020

This Tuesday morning, on the N17-1 road, near the exit to the Industrial Area of ​​Alto do Padrão (between Miranda do Corvo and Lousã), a truck carrying pigs to the slaughterhouse collapsed, having been in the situation that you can see in the video. The driver of the vehicle, we found, was not injured.
But the animals it carried, yes.

We were unable to provide support as the road was closed.
But we managed to register some images so that everyone can see and hear the suffering of these animals.

 

According to the information that arrived at the site, about 100 animals died.

But that was not all we found: the scene was of many dead pigs, but even more pigs in agony. Bleeding, with broken legs, with a broken spine, dying … an authentic Dante scene.

At the end of the day, more than 9 hours later, we returned to the place. Some animals had already been taken, but many pigs were still there, clearly very injured.

It should also be noted that, when they realized that we were filming this violence, they turned off the truck lights and tried to get the GNR to expel us from the place.

There are not enough words to describe the horror that happened today. So we let the screams of these animals speak for us.

Where’s our empathy ?! How is it possible that these situations continue to happen?

And I mean…The next day, a pig that survived the accident was still at the scene.
More than 24 hours later.

Would an injured person ever be forgotten at an accident site?
No, never!
Because the law protects human animals.
There is no law to protect non-human animals.
Therefore, according to the law, these pigs are viewed as objects that have no right to life.

Their life belongs to someone, their body belongs to someone, there is no RIGHT to protect these animals.

Many wondered how the accident happened, what was the reason.

The correct question is: Am I one of the REASONS for this accident? I, the meat consumer?

Am I the one responsible for their hell life, their agonizing transports, their brutal death in the slaughterhouse?

If there is demand, there will be an offer. And as long as there is demand, these “accidents” will continue to happen because of thousands of trucks like these transport millions of sentient beings to an inhuman death every day.

We want this industry to be smashed in the next 10 years.
There is no point in fighting for “organic” farming, shorter transports, and larger cages.

You can only get out and use your personal behavior, your personal diet, to inflict the death blow on this death industry.

Stop eating animals and their products.
Stop cooperating with this fascist system of exploitation.

China: Pangolins Now Removed From Official List of Traditional Medicines. Lets Hope They Enforce It !

WAV Comment – we did a post about the Pangolin a few months ago – you can read it here:

https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2020/02/16/15-2-is-world-pangolin-day-learn-more-about-these-wonderful-animals-now-critically-endangered-due-to-man/

https://ladyfreethinker.org/endangered-pangolins-finally-removed-from-chinas-traditional-medicine-list/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email

In a hopeful step toward protecting wild animals and public health, China has removed the endangered pangolin from its official list of traditional medicines. The decision comes days after the country’s State Forestry and Grassland Administration (SFGA) increased the pangolin’s protection status to the highest possible level because of the creatures’ dwindling population.

Pangolins are the world’s most heavily-trafficked animal with around 200,000 poached annually. Their scales are extremely valuable in China’s lucrative black market due to their supposed medicinal qualities, despite scientists affirming that there is currently no known medical benefit.

Holding pangolins captive could be dangerous to human health, as well. Some researchers think the coronavirus may have transmitted to its first human host via a pangolin. More generally, the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis is thought to have originated at a ‘wet market’ in Wuhan, China, drawing widespread attention to the dangers of the live animal trade, which unavoidably brings humans and animals within unnaturally close proximity.

China’s decision to upgrade pangolins’ protection status and remove them from its list of traditional medicines is the latest in a series of legislative moves responding to the current pandemic, including a nationwide ban on the wild animal trade and the government offering to buy out wild animal farmers and transition to plant-based farming.

This is a monumental step in a more humane direction, but truly ending the cruel pangolin trade, which continues despite the ban, remains an uphill battle. Lady Freethinker applauds China’s efforts, but more must be done to protect these innocent creatures.

WAV Comment:

 

Good to see at least that Andrea (Gavinelli); one head of unit at DG SANTE is going to be speaking at this event. I used to send Andrea a lot of letters and info when I was EU correspondent for a English live export campaign group in the more recent past.

Andrea is a good man and I always found him to be supportive of our work to stop live animal transport. Although he is now a head of unit; he sadly still comes under the control of Bernard (I can do nothing) Van Goethem. We hope that in the 15 minutes allocated to Mr Gavinelli to speak; regarding Animal welfare within the ‘Farm to Fork’ strategy, he will push for a reduction / ban on the transport on live animals within the EU

As we have shown in very recent posts; if South Africa and Australia can take action on the issue of live animal transport; then the EU can do the same. As with most EU issues, there is a mafia type control (the meat mafia) which prevents the wishes of EU citizens coming into force.

It is sad when an organisation such as the EU, which claims to ‘represent the people’; does exactly the opposite and in reality, represents only the mafia style operators who wish to see live animal transport continue. There has been a ‘crisis’ in live animal transport within the EU for years – and its head (Van Goethem) does nothing about the crisis; he simply holds his hands up and says ‘I can do nothing’.
