Adoption means love

There is nothing better than giving an animal a second chance at a new and loving home ❤

 

It is “not just an animal” with whom you share your life, it is a heart that beats, a being that feels with you and will be grateful forever.
It is a life that wants to live.

Open your house to a friend who stays true to you for life.
Adopt an animal, never buy!

My best regards to all, Venus

And I mean…There are many who would say … “this is not how we solve the problem with fur farms, we have to abolish fur farms by law”.
Yes! We all know that! ALF too.

But we know even more that laws are made by criminal, corrupt politicians, most of whom have a private economic interest in preserving fur farms.

These actions not only release the animals DIRECTLY from their suffering but also cause great financial damage to the fur mafia.

If ten of these actions were to take place each month, especially in countries such as Finland, Denmark, Poland, Russia, and above all in China, we would have damaged this mafia-like business faster and more effectively than waiting for the law.

Not all will probably survive, however for thousands of animals, it means they are spared death by gassing or electrocution.

They get a free life, what they deserve, they don’t end up on the shelves as cheap fur.

 

Thank you, ALF, mille grazie!

 

Leonardo DiCaprio Calls For Wildlife Trade To End – Says Animals Are ‘Worth More Alive’.

Leonardo DiCaprio Calls For Wildlife Trade To End – Says Animals Are ‘Worth More Alive’

The actor praised Vietnam’s decision to ban all imports of wild animals to his 45.1 million Instagram followers

Celebrity actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio has called for an end to the wildlife trade, saying animals are ‘worth more alive’.

The star made the comment after reposting a breaking news story from WildAid on how Vietnam has banned all imports of wild animals, dead or alive, to reduce further pandemic risk.

Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has also called for tougher action against people involved in illegal hunting, killing, or advertising of wild animals in a new directive with immediate effect.

‘This is huge’

DiCaprio, who often uses his platform to raise awareness of meat’s environmental impact, said to his 45.1 million Instagram followers: “This is huge for both the protection of wildlife and ourselves.

“We must end the trade. #EndTheTrade #WhenTheBuyingStopsTheKillingCanToo #WorthMoreAlive.”

Is Leonardo DiCaprio Vegan?

Whilst DiCaprio has invested in plant-based brand Beyond Meat, and executively produced the environmental documentary Cowspiracy – he is not vegan himself.

However, it was reported that the celeb requested a plant-based meal for the 2020 Governors Ball earlier this year.

Chef Wolfgang Puck told Hollywood Life: “I did the SAG Awards and Leo said, ‘What can you give me, something vegan?’. He wanted vegan. We made a vegan pizza. He ate it so fast. He said, ‘Oh, can you bring another one?’.”

 

Finland: Raccoon Dog On Finnish Fur Farm Impaled Through Eye and Head – This IS Fur Farming and Animal Abuse. Sign the Petition for a Fur Free UK Now !

FINL0001

 

 

Sorry folks but with Venus away I was hoping to keep things under some kind of control.  But over the last few days I have personally had a really bad hit with my MS – and with the heat this week in Europe, it just shut me down.  But things are a little better today and so I will try and publish a few things.  This story is just one of thousands which relate to animals being kept and abused for their fur.

Then you get crass statements from the BFTA stating that there are individual cases like this; but with rigorous checks cases are dealt with swiftly.  A typical response from an industry which supports animal abuse.

This incident was in Finland, but we fully support Claire Bass of the Humane Society International/UK, when she says “As long as the UK sells fur from overseas, we are complicit in this horrendous cruelty.

“We need a UK fur sales ban now.”

Fully agree Claire, and we will continue (with most people) to fight to get one.

Fur farmers and traders – dealers in animal abuse and untold suffering; we will expose them whenever we can.

Foxes and mink have been found in appalling conditions on fur farms in Finland, which exports millions of pounds of fur products to the UK.

Investigators found animals in tiny cages suffering from ear infections and damaged eyes, and with ears and limbs bitten off.

One raccoon dog had even been impaled through the eye and head by a protruding part of his cage.

Kristo Muurimaa is an investigator for the Finish charity Oikeutta Elaimille, who visited farms undercover.

He said: “I have got used to seeing animals unable to move more than a few feet, the stench, the continuous screaming and the rattling sound of wire cages under thousands of tiny paws.

“But this raccoon dog pierced through the eye, hanging there unable to move, was something I’ve never seen before.

“This industry needs to stop.”

 

Finland is Europe’s biggest producer of fox fur.

It electrocutes 1.9 million foxes, 1.04 million mink and 153,000 raccoon dogs every year.

Since 2000, when Britain banned fur farming, we have imported more than £14million of Finnish fur.

Claire Bass, of the Humane Society International/UK, said: “As long as the UK sells fur from overseas, we are complicit in this horrendous cruelty.

“We need a UK fur sales ban now.”

This month, the Daily Mirror launched its Fur Free Britain campaign.

The British Fur Trade Association said: “There will be individual cases where animals become ill or injured.

“Thanks to the rigorous checks in place, these cases will be dealt with swiftly.”

 

 

Mirror petition wording:

Help make a fur-free Britain!

The government ordered the last UK fur farm to close its doors back in 2000, but now the UK is importing fur cruelty from overseas. The unnecessary suffering of animals for fur fashion is deplorable, whether the animal involved is a cat, a dog or a seal, whose fur is already banned from UK trade by EU regulations, or a coyote, a fox or a raccoon dog, whose fur is currently still allowed.

Opinion polls show continually high levels of public disapproval of fur, regardless of species – more than 80% believe that it’s unacceptable to buy and sell animal fur in the UK. We want to see an end to the cruel, unnecessary, outdated fur trade, and for Britain to lead the way as the world’s first fur-free nation!

Please add your name to our letter calling on the government not only to retain a UK import ban on cat, dog and seal, but also establish a sales ban to cover the pelts of all animals killed for their fur.
