South Kores: Meat Trade Dogs – March News and Actions.


Sister City Campaign – Daegu & Milwaukee

Daegu became Sister city with Milwaukee on August 23, 2017. In Daegu, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive.

In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.

Please take action to urge Milwaukee Mayor and Common Council members to help end their new Sister City’s illegal and horrendous cruelty.

Busan Buk-gu District – Shut down the Gupo Dog Meat Marketin the “School Cleanup Zone”!


​The Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market is within the boundaries of the “School

Environment, Hygiene, Cleanup Zone” specified in the School Health Act as

evidenced in this Busan News article:

Dispute over the Gupo Livestock Market’s violation of the School Health Act.

However, the Busan Buk-gu District office refuses to shut it down, claiming

that the School Health Act does not apply to the Gupo Dog Meat Market.

​The officials in the Busan Buk-gu District put the interests of dog butchers/shops

before the education of their young children. Imagine allowing your children

to grow up hearing the screams of the meat dogs and seeing them writhe in agony,

being brutally slaughtered right in front of their young eyes. It will either

traumatize these children for life or make them immune to the suffering of

animals, turning them into the next generation of animal abusers.

This is despicable and it must be stopped.

Pet shop of horrors – 79 dogs found dead,
​many more left to starve by a heartless pet shop owner

A heartless pet shop owner in Cheonan Dongnam-gu district is reported to have neglected a total of 160 dogs, causing the death of 79 of them because he did not want to spend any more money on them.

Many corpses were found in a significant state of decomposition, with their skulls and ribs fully exposed. The remaining 80 surviving dogs, were clearly starving and many found diseased. Astoundingly the pet shop is also reported to have been offering an adoption service to clients, promising to find new homes for these unfortunate animals!

Canada: Extreme Suffering Of Mink On Fur Farms Exposed.

Canada – Suffering on mink farms exposed


A new exposé reveals the abusive treatment on five mink fur farms in Canada, where an eyewitness documented filthy conditions, including piles of feces and pools of waste teeming with maggots just beneath the animals’ wire cages, which were covered with cobwebs. The intensive confinement caused some animals to exhibit symptoms of “zoochosis,” or captivity-induced insanity, including pacing, circling, and gnawing on cage bars. Live minks had to live with a dead cagemate in their midst.

Watch the video:


Help minks and other animals who suffer intensely in the fur trade by urging Dolce & Gabbana—which sells fur from minks, foxes, rabbits, beavers, and other animals—to drop it immediately. Together, we can make a difference.




Thank you for your compassion for animals.

SIGN: Justice for Dog Who Died after being Forced to Fly in Overhead Bin


When a family boarded a United Airlines plane Monday with their beloved French bulldog, Kokito, they had no idea the flight would end in heartbreak.

A flight attendant insisted that the dog’s carrier be moved into the overhead bin at takeoff — even though the crate was TSA-approved, and the family had followed all airline rules. When the plane landed, Kokito was dead. And now, the family is in mourning over a tragedy that never should have happened.

27/2/18 – Actions.

It’s a bit ‘parky’ here in the UK at the moment.  Most of Europe is being hit at the moment by really cold conditions coming in from Siberia; which is being called ‘the beast from the East’.

Here are a few pictures of our bonsai trees this morning; complete with snow.

We are not griping about it as we know many visitors to this site would dream of some good rain or snow conditions where they live; we appreciate that and feel very lucky that we have lots of rain and snow – which makes the UK the wonderful green environment which it is.


Please give a thought for all the strays in Serbia and Europe at this time. 

Help them by visiting the following:


In parts of Serbia it will be down to -14 degrees at night.

Stray dogs will be really suffering in this cold.

It costs 35 Euros to build and fully fit out a stray dog house with straw.

Please help support this if you can.

Here are a few other issues that possibly you could give your attention to today.


Hi Mark, this is the photo of the dogs who were illegally collected from the street in Vranje, Serbia and dumped on area where they leave garbage.

They were rescued by animal welfare org Borba za život – Vranje, which is just now fighting against Avenija MB, notorious dogs killers, March is tomorrow, with us Koalicija za Zivot Srbija No kill coalition.

The world should know about this, but, real facts, not these.

This is the article, original, not translated, but Serbian Animals Voice has nothing with it.

China going vegan?

Massive decline in meat consumption, vegetarian restaurants double in 5 years in Shanghai

More and more people in China are switching to vegetarian food. In China, a country which is the world’s largest market for beef, pork, and poultry, eateries are going all vegan to encash this popular sentiment.

Han Lili, a Shanghai-based artist told PTI that the number of vegan restaurants has multiplied from 49 in 2012 to more than 100 last year in China’s largest city.

England: Protect The Goodwin Sands From Dredging. Petition Link.


Serbian Animals Voice is based in ‘Kent’ county on the South East corner of England.

To the North it has the river Thames which goes all the way up into London.


Here are a few views of some of Kent:….0…1ac.1.64.img..0.19.723….0.GKh7j05pLnE


Kent is the nearest county to Europe.  During the second world war it was one of the major areas that was attacked by German bombers – and those heading to bomb London.  Kent was the main county over which the Battle of Britain was fought.  Because of this, and the fact that Kent has the ‘English Channel’ (one of the busiest sea lanes in the World) to the East and South, many aircrew were lost during the war on an area known as the ‘Goodwin Sands’ which lies a few miles off the coast.  It has also been the location of many shipwrecks over the centuries which has resulted in the loss of hundreds of lives.


Thus, we are supporting a campaign to stop the Goodwin Sands from being dredged for its aggregate.

The Goodwin Sands are a string of sandbanks some 25 square nautical miles in size lying 3 miles off the Kent coast in the English Channel. They are a unique marine environment with an underwater cultural heritage to match.

But this precious habitat is under threat and time is not on our side!

Dover Harbour Board want to extract 2.75 million cubic meters of marine aggregate from the Goodwins (as they are known locally) because it is their cheapest option. The purchase price from the Crown Estate who own the seabed is less than from commercial sites, but they are further away. DHB cite the carbon footprint as a reason to take the aggregate from the Goodwins but in reality this is a smoke screen which can be mitigated in other ways.

DHB applied for their licence from the Marine Management Organisation in 2016. However, concerns about their proposal have been so great that we are now preparing for an unprecedented third six-week public consultation period, which will start sometime in late summer. A decision whether or not to grant the licence will be made any time after this, depending on the reactions received.

Save our Military Remains and Shipwrecks

A Spitfire flies off the Kent Coast

According to the Kent Battle of Britain Museum, there are at least 60 military air crash sites and the final resting places of 80 aircrew from 1940 alone lying buried in the Goodwin Sands area. There are 11 more Dornier 17 German bombers also lying buried somewhere on the Goodwins, identical to the one which was found by a local diver in 2008 and recovered with international press coverage in 2013.


The Goodwin Sands are known hold about 2,000 shipwrecks, many which were lost with all hands. These wrecks have the reputation for being extremely well preserved. The wreck of the Admiral Gardner lies close to the proposed dredging zone. She was an East Indiaman, built in 1797, which was stranded on the sands during a gale in 1809. Although there is a 300m exclusion zone around her, the impact and vibration caused by nearby dredging could still disturb or damage her.

Four other ships – also Protected Wrecks Sites – Northumberland, Restoration, Mary and Stirling Castle were all wrecked on the night of the Great Storm, 19th November 1703, with the loss of 1201 lives. They lie on the seabed adjacent to the proposed dredging zone.


Save our Sealife

The Goodwins are home to a colony of 500 grey and harbour seals. They are also the spawning and nursery grounds of a variety of local fish and shellfish, with many shipwrecks providing a semi natural habitat. The Thornback Ray which is listed as ‘near threatened’ under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 has frequently been sighted there.

The colony of seals use areas adjacent to the proposed dredging zone as their ‘haul out’ sites i.e. where they rest on land at low tide. The noise and vibration from the huge dredgers will disturb them in their natural habitat; there is also the possibility of them being injured by collision with the dredgers and propellors as they are naturally inquisitive creatures.

The sands provide shelter to ships in bad weather (in an anchorage known as The Downs) and to the Kent coastline by absorbing the waves’ energy as they pound in from the North Sea. At low tide a large proportion of the sands are exposed and waves can be seen crashing onto them from the shore.

For the airmen and mariners who are at rest on the Goodwin sands, please help save the Goodwin Sands and their neighbouring environment from the destruction of dredging by signing and sharing this petition today.

UK: Very Close To A National (UK) Foie Gras Ban – Please Sign And Support Minister Gove On This. 



 The UK does NOT produce Foie Gras thankfully.  It imports it from mainland Europe.

So, now the UK is getting out of the EU (big sense !) we have the chance to take back control and be a voice in the UK for animal welfare.

We have every chance once again of the UK becoming much better than the EU when it comes to animal welfare.  UK citizens will ensure that.

Minister Michael Gove is very close to enforcing a complete ban on all Foie Gras coming into the UK.

Please watch the video below and see what is involved in Foie Gras production – force feeding which causes the birds liver to swell up to 10 times its normal size.  This liver is then sold on after slaughter to so called Gastronauts who take pride in eating this product which causes so much suffering for animals.

Now Disgusted ? – Please sign the petition after watching the video – and push to make the UK Foie Gras Free !

Petition Link – Please Sign and give support to Minister Gove. 


Above – (Good Man for animal welfare) Minister Gove;

the man trying for the UK Foie Gras Ban.

Please support him – sign the petition.



Decision Day For Bees. Lets Hope The EU Is Better For Them Than They Are For Animals In Transport.

In our opinion, this result will show just how much the EU establishment actually listens to concerns and evidence of citizens, OR how much the big money corps pay to get their way.

On 28 February, the European Parliament is expected to vote on a decisive resolution calling on the European Commission to protect the bees that are so vital to Europe’s food security and ecological balance.


The outcome of this vote could determine the fate of bees in Europe.


The European Commission is considering a groundbreaking Europe-wide ban on bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides — but if the European Parliament takes a stand against it, then chances of the ban going forward are slim.


We have just 7 days left to convince European Parliamentarians to pass this crucial resolution and to increase the pressure, we’re launching a hard-hitting ad campaign in influential Brussels media outlets.


Together, SumOfUs members have been at the forefront of the global battle to protect bees. We helped push the French government to put in place the strongest ban on bee-killing pesticides to date, and we’ve continued to work together to defend it from major corporations like Dow Chemical. Our collective action has convinced major retailers to stop selling of neonics in places like the United States and Australia.


Now, we’re closer than ever to protecting bees in all EU countries — where around 84% of plant species and 76% of food production depends on pollination. With bee colonies in decline by more than 50% in some European member states, we have no time to lose.


The decision to ban dangerous pesticides in Europe is within our grasp. And, this resolution from European Parliamentarians could tip the scales.
