Gold fever, Covid 19 and the genocide of the Yanomami indigenous people of the Amazon.

 

Gold fever, Covid 19 and the genocide of the Yanomami indigenous people of the Amazon.

I found this article on Barbara’s site tragic; and at the same time very informative about what is happening right now; today, in the Amazon.  At the end I copy a quote which sadly, is vso very true, but so very ignored by those in power who haver the possibility to change things, but fail to do so.

Please read the full article – link given below; and learn more about the suffering of the indigenous people of the Amazon. 

Rage and repent, but above all – read it !

Yanomami leaders say that wildcat gold miners are responsible for bringing coronavirus into their communities. They are very concerned because over 25,000 gold miners are now operating in their preserve, destroying the forest to clear spaces for mining pits, polluting the rivers with mercury and contaminating fish.

Deafening noise from their machines and high powered hoses scare off game animals, leaving nothing for the Yanomami to hunt.

As the virus spreads throughout Brazil, the gold rush in the Amazon continues unabated, accelerating the devastation among the 850,000 indigenous people in the country.

When you cut down the trees you assault the spirits of our ancestors. When you dig for minerals you impale the heart of the Earth. And when you pour poisons on the land and into the rivers – chemicals from agriculture and mercury from gold mines – you weaken the spirits, the plants, the animals and the land itself. When you weaken the land like that, it starts to die. If the land dies, if our Earth dies, then none of us will be able to live, and we too will all die.” – cacique Raoni Metuktire

Dentist who killed Cecil the lion back hunting as new photo shows sick slaughter

EXCLUSIVE: Walter Palmer, 60, sparked global backlash after killing much-loved lion Cecil in Zimbabwe, almost exactly five years ago – now he’s been pictured showing off a slaughtered sheep

The dentist who slayed Cecil the lion five years ago is hunting again.

Walter Palmer, 60, paid up to £80,000 to slaughter a huge ram in Mongolia.

But after the outrage over the death of Cecil, the American “driller killer’s” face is hidden on photos boasting of the hunt.

Humane Society International said: “Clearly the killing for kicks continues”.

In a new photo – with his face hidden from view – the man who killed Cecil the lion shows off a slaughtered wild sheep.

The image was taken on a sickening trip that proves dentist Palmer has returned to trophy hunting.

It comes despite the global backlash the American sparked after slaying much-loved lion Cecil in Zimbabwe, almost exactly five years ago.

Palmer paid up to £80,000 for the trip to hunt Altai argali – the world’s biggest type of sheep – in Mongolia.

Dr Teresa Telecky, wildlife vice-president at Humane Society International, said: “For trophy hunters to travel to Mongolia to kill a beautiful and ­endangered ram is an absolute outrage.

“The argali ram is a species in danger of extinction, so the idea that these animals can be killed for pleasure is abhorrent.

“The killing of Cecil the lion five years ago caused international shock. But clearly the killing for kicks continues.

“It’s time for the law to stop wildlife killers in their tracks by banning trophy hunting.”

The Mirror is campaigning for an end to trophy hunting and calling on the UK Government to ban the import of animals killed for pleasure.

Palmer’s trip to Mongolia last August is thought to have lasted up to a week, after travelling 5,800 miles from his home state of Minnesota.

Palmer and his friend Brent Sinclair met local guides before heading into the mountains to track their prey.

The two men have travelled the world together to kill animals for fun.

It is understood the ram, said to be a “much older male”, was killed with an arrow from around 30 yards.

A source claims Palmer has several more trips planned.

The insider said: “At the time of Cecil’s death, Walter took a back seat. But he’s been hunting ever since he was a boy. It’s a way of life to him. Walter has undertaken several hunts since Cecil’s death.

“The trip to Mongolia was his idea. The ram was on his list of hunts he wanted to complete.”

The sheep is still in Mongolia for now. US officials have yet to grant the permit for it to be exported to America.

Of their hunt to kill the Altai argali, Sinclair was careful not to name Palmer on social media posts, instead calling him “amigo”.

Writing on his public Facebook page, Sinclair said of the driller killer: “I have booked more hunting trips with this guy over the past 20 years than I can count.

 

“Together, we have travelled to many far reaches of the world.”

He talked about them once killing an elephant, but said the trip to slaughter the sheep may be “at the top of the pinnacle and hard to beat”.

He added: “Thanks, Amigo for the adventure… look forward to our next one.”

The Mirror spoke to Palmer as he emerged from a bar in Bloomington, Minnesota, after he had taken an early lunch.

He smiled at first, but his face turned to anger when shown the pictures of his hunt in Mongolia.

He refused to talk, driving off in his £95,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Dad-of-two Palmer refuses to hunt with a gun, using a bow and arrow instead.

He is known to spend hours practising at his million-dollar five-bedroom home in Eden Prairie, near Minneapolis, and his holiday house in Marco Island, Florida.

Palmer was with Sinclair, who arranges hunts for wealthy Americans, when Cecil the lion was killed.

The magnificent creature was a huge attraction in Hwange National Park.

At the time, he was being tracked through a GPS satellite collar by a research team at Oxford University as part of a long-term study.

The 13-year-old black-maned lion was wounded with an arrow, then tracked and killed with a second dart the following morning, around 12 hours later.

Police investigated after a claim that Cecil was slaughtered illegally. There were accusations bait was used to lure him out of his protected habitat.

However, Zimbabwe’s High Court threw out charges against Palmer’s guide Theo Bronkhorst.

The court agreed with the defence that it could not have been a crime because the American had a legal permit to hunt.

It is thought the trip cost Palmer around £40,000. Afterwards, the dentist said: “If I had known this lion had a name and was important to the country or a study, obviously I wouldn’t have taken it.

“Nobody in our hunting party knew before or after the name of this lion.”

Two weeks after Palmer’s trip to Mongolia last year, the US President’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr also ­travelled there to hunt the sheep.

It cost American taxpayers £60,000 for the cost of secret service agents.

Critics argue that Trump Jr’s love of killing big game is the reason why his dad has rolled back restrictions on imports of hunting trophies.

France: Ban on wild animals in circuses from January 1, 2026.

FOUR PAWS: France

Hope for the #saddestbears 🐻 and animal welfare in France!

Last week, seven MPs introduced a new law in France to improve the living conditions of wild animals and pets and to combat their abuse.

The bill provides for a ban on shows with bears and wolves and a ban on “acquiring, owning, and keeping” wild animals in circuses from January 1, 2026.

FOUR PAWS criticizes in particular the cruel exploitation of wild animals for entertainment purposes. Bears and wolves are forced to perform stupid, unnatural tricks at festivals, shows, in the circus 🎪 and at private parties in France.

My comment: How primitive and stupid can be people in the middle of Europe when they take their children and go to the circus to have fun with them and enjoy the suffering of other beings …

Circus number with tortured animals (wild or not wild, does not play a role) is against any ethics of modern civilized countries and societies.

The French government’s move to ban the wildlife shows is good but inadequate and extremely slow.
29 countries in Europe have long introduced this ban, many of them of all animal species.

Only Germany and France have neither empathy nor decency and still live in the dark times of the cruelty of animals for the circus industry.

Victory! – The First Province In Cambodia, Siem Reap, Bans The Barbaric Dog Meat Trade Saving The Lives Of 7,000 Dogs Per Month.

Victory! The First Province In Cambodia, Siem Reap, Bans The Barbaric Dog Meat Trade Saving The Lives Of 7,000 Dogs Per Month

 

 

https://worldanimalnews.com/victory-the-first-province-in-cambodia-siem-reap-bans-the-barbaric-dog-meat-trade-saving-the-lives-of-7000-dogs-per-month/

One of Southeast Asia’s most iconic tourist attractions is making major strides to protect millions of dogs throughout the country. After FOUR PAWS revealed the suffering of an estimated three million dogs that are slaughtered for their meat in Cambodia each year, the Siem Reap Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestries and Fisheries published a letter on July 6th banning the slaughter and trade of dogs for their meat in the province.

FOUR PAWS has been working closely with the Cambodian government since 2018, advocating for a ban on dog meat due to the extreme animal cruelty involved and public health risk, largely due to rabies and the spread of zoonotic diseases. The recent developments are seen as a crucial turning point for animal welfare in the region.

Through nationwide investigations, FOUR PAWS identified Siem Reap province as a key hot spot in the country’s dog meat trade, responsible for the large-scale sourcing and trafficking of dogs to supply the demand for dog meat in the Eastern part of the country, most notably Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh.

The province’s dog meat trade is of considerable magnitude, killing upwards of 7,000 dogs per month. Until recently, the brutal trade has continued unabated despite consumption being a controversial practice. Less than 12% of Cambodians regularly consume dog meat, according to a FOUR PAWS market research study.

“The historic decision by the Siem Reap government to ban the stealing, trading, and killing of dogs is a huge milestone for animal welfare in Cambodia and is reflective of current sentiment among Khmer people,” Dr. Katherine Polak, veterinarian and Head of FOUR PAWS Stray Animal Care in Southeast Asia, said in a statement.

During FOUR PAWS’ investigations, a total of 21 restaurants serving an estimated 2,900 dogs per month were visited in the Siem Reap city area alone; several of them located close to the world-famous temple complex Angkor Wat.

One dog slaughterhouse and five high-volume holding and trading areas were also located in the province, used to hold dogs prior to being transported to slaughter. Specialized minivans equipped with cages are used to regularly transport at least 3,750 live dogs per month out of Siem Reap to slaughterhouses in Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, and Skun. Here, the dogs are brutally killed, stripped of their fur, and sold by wholesalers to the more than 100 dog meat restaurants in Phnom Penh.

In Cambodia, FOUR PAWS has partnered with local charity Animal Rescue Cambodia to improve companion animal welfare, as well as with the Cambodian Mine Action Centre, a Cambodian government department, to end the dog meat trade.

To put a sustainable end to the brutal dog meat trade in Southeast Asia, FOUR PAWS has launched a campaign on an international and national level in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

“Through educational work and cooperation with the responsible authorities, local communities, and the tourism industry, the goal of FOUR PAWS is for Governments in Southeast Asia to introduce, strengthen, and enforce animal protection laws, which will bring an end to the capture, slaughter, and consumption of dogs and cats. This will not only protect animals – but people as well from public health risks,” stated Dr. Karanvir Kukreja, veterinarian and Project Manager for FOUR PAWS’ Ending the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Campaign.

FOUR PAWS also supports local animal welfare organizations and communities with humane and sustainable stray animal care programs. They are also a part of the animal welfare coalitions Dog Meat Free Indonesia and Asia Canine Protection Alliance, which lobby against the trade in Southeast Asia, as well as the Asia for Animals Coalition, which works to improve the welfare of animals across Asia.

Support to END this cruel trade has gained global traction through a petition by FOUR PAWS that has received over 800,000 signatures since it launched late last year. Please help support this critical campaign by signing the petition HERE!
