Vietnam: Stop The Bloody Boar Fights – Petition To Sign.


ACT NOW: Stop Bloody Boar Fights in Vietnam!

Shocking footage has emerged of a pack of dogs ripping a terrified boar limb from limb, as part of a LEGAL organised dog fight. Urgent animal protection laws are needed to end this savage cruelty. Sign the petition now!

Devastating footage on social media shows crowds cheering as an exhausted boar runs for his life. His screams of pain and fear can be heard as he is set upon by a pack of baying dogs… trained to kill.


Petition link –


The footage has sparked outrage in Vietnam, but these organised ‘death battles’ – between dogs and boars fleeing for their lives are nothing new in Vietnam. One crowd member even commented, “We will continue doing it because it isn’t illegal.


And boar aren’t the only victims of this vicious blood sport…


Dogs used as killing-machines are treated as nothing more than sporting equipment. Often chained, mutilated, and treated cruelly to make them more aggressive.


Two years ago, the Vietnamese government passed its first Animal Health Law. Yet, there are currently no laws to protect animals from harm, or punish animal abusers.

When barbaric cruelty like these sick organised dog fights can go unpunished, and leave authorities powerless to act, urgent changes are needed…

Please, join us in calling on the Vietnam Government to update the law to include animal protection regulations, and strong punishments for those who commit acts of violence against animals.

Act now, call for urgent animal welfare laws in Vietnam. Please, sign the petition now…

International: Stop Live Exports Day of Action – 14/6/18. See Below For More Details.


Dear Mark,


Stop Live Transport: International Awareness Day is just a month away, and the victims of this horrible trade need your voice.


End Europe’s live export shame


The European Commission is currently complicit in an appalling trade in live farm animals to Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa. Please tell the Commissioners to take action.


Petition link –

Animals exported from Europe may face extreme dehydration, exhaustion and hunger. Some collapse onto floors that are covered in faeces and urine, and risk being trampled by their companions. Those that survive may then face unimaginably horrific slaughter.

It is within the power of the European Commission – and the Commission alone – to propose legislation to end this suffering. Please call for an end to EU live exports today.

Take a stand on 14th June!


Thanks to a recent investigation by Animals Australia, the cruelty of live transport is making global headlines. Video footage of sheep in the belly of a transport ship, covered in blankets of faeces, or being cooked alive by sweltering temperatures, has shocked the world.

If you haven’t already done so, please click here to find out more.

You can join campaigners worldwide who will be raising their voices, in unison, to oppose this cruel trade.



If you’re based near London, UK, please join our rally in Parliament Square from 12:30-2.00pm. You can register your interest in the rally on Facebook.

Alternatively, check out our interactive map to find an event closer to home!

A huge thank you to everyone who’s already said ‘I’m in’ to Stop Live Transport: International Awareness Day, 14th June. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response so far – with events planned in over 30 countries!



No event near you? Why not organise your own! A candlelight vigil, a peaceful street rally or even an online demonstration – anything you can do will raise awareness of the cruelty of long distance transport.

1/5/18: News: Netherlands, India and England – Actions.


Use of Animals in Experiments Decreases in the Netherlands

Recently published figures have revealed that the use of non-human primates in experiments in the Netherlands decreased by a massive 49 per cent between 2015 and 2016. There were also significant reductions in the use of dogs (by 13 per cent); horses, donkeys, and other equines (by 31 per cent); and goats, sheep, and cattle (by 39 per cent).

The dramatic decline in the use of primates came after PETA Netherlands collected over 100,000 signatures from compassionate people all over Europe and delivered them to politicians in The Hague. As a result, in March 2016, the Dutch government passed a motion to phase out experiments at Europe’s largest primate facility, the Biomedical Primate Research Centre in Rijswijk.

PETA scientists subsequently submitted an extensive dossier with a strategy for replacing animal use with superior, kinder methods. Soon afterwards, following input from many stakeholder groups, Martijn van Dam, then the Dutch Secretary of State for Economic Affairs, announced his plan for the Netherlands to end the use of animals in toxicity tests for chemicals, food ingredients, pesticides, veterinary medicines, and vaccines by 2025.

If tests on animals were eliminated, experimenters would no longer force chemicals down the throats of mice, rats, rabbits, and other animals or inject them into their bodies. And monkeys would no longer be locked inside tiny cages and infected with fatal diseases.

PETA commends the Dutch government for making progress on this issue. But as long as experimenters in the Netherlands continue to use animals in more than 400,000 procedures a year, we must keep working to end these cruel and ineffective tests.

What You Can Do

Please sign our letter calling on the European Commission and the European Parliament to observe a moratorium on all animal experiments and review them systematically to reassess their value.



India – Kambala: Terrible Beatings and Abuse Exposed

The cruelty of kambala is deeply disturbing.

New video footage shot by PETA India at kambala events reveals that buffalo bulls were frothing at the mouth and struggling to breathe. Some had bloody wounds from abuse yet were still forced – with beatings – to run at breakneck speed!

Racing is both unnatural to buffaloes and damaging to their bodies – which is precisely why the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change banned the use of bulls in kambala, jallikattu, and other events in 2011. But last year, the Government of Karnataka, bowing to political pressure, passed a Bill amending the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, to permit kambala in that state. This received presidential assent, a terrible blow to efforts to end such atrocities.

Will you make a donation today to help PETA India stop kambala races and spare buffaloes and other animals abuse?

At personal risk, investigators from PETA India have attended and recorded seven recent kambala events in Karnataka, documenting rampant cruelty throughout, from violent beatings to nose ropes pulled so painfully and so hard that blood poured down the petrified buffaloes’ faces. We must do everything possible to help animals by getting kambala banned again!

When Karnataka’s government passed its first ordinance permitting kambala in 2017, we challenged its constitutional validity – and the Supreme Court issued notice in our petition in December of that year. The court asked the central and state governments to file a reply. After that, the Karnataka government dared to pass legislation amending the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, to allow kambala again. Now, we’re working on a writ petition before the Supreme Court that will powerfully challenge this abomination as well.

And not only are we working in the courts and making sure this issue is on the public’s mind with our vital, attention-grabbing media campaigns, we’re also speaking with policymakers – including senior officials with the Animal Welfare Board of India, the Karnataka government, and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change – to urge them to ban kambala and other cruel forms of entertainment. Support for our critical work to end these spectacles is growing steadily, and we need you and other compassionate PETA India members to help us have the kind of impact necessary to change all this.

Together, we will spare buffaloes the beatings and abuse that are inherent in kambala – and make India an animal-respecting nation that the world can look up to.




Environment secretary Michael Gove keeps talking about a ‘green brexit’, but he’s not put any concrete proposals forward to make that a reality.

We‘ve just asked him to make a start by including a pesticide reduction target for the UK in his upcoming Agriculture Bill.

Will you join us?


We desperately need to reduce our reliance on pesticides, and put our environment before the pesticide industry’s profits.

SIGN: Justice for Trusting Cat Brutally Attacked with Battery Acid


Georgie, a family cat in Exeter, England known for loving and trusting humans, is now fighting for her life after someone viciously attacked the sweet tabby with battery acid, severely burning her face and body.

When Georgie staggered back home after the attack, she was foaming at the mouth and missing large swaths of fur. Her mouth, tongue and throat are burned so badly, she cannot eat. Even if she survives, she will likely lose her ears and may be permanently blind.

Georgie is under veterinary care, but if she is badly burned internally, she will not survive.

This sickening torture of a gentle, loving cat is inexcusable

Whoever poured acid on Georgie must be found at once, as they are a dire threat to the community.

Sign this petition to urge Exeter police to put every effort into finding and apprehending this sick individual, so that no more animals or humans will suffer this horrific fate.

SIGN: Justice for Dog Thrown from Balcony and Beaten with Sticks by Mob

A Liverpool family is heartbroken after their beloved dog Hindo was brutally hurled from their balcony and then beaten to death with sticks by an angry mob.

The group was drinking and throwing bottles in the streets outside the family’s apartment when the mother spoke to them to try to get them to quiet down. Instead, the thugs climbed up to the balcony wielding broken bottles and knives. When loyal Hindo tried to protect his family, the mob threw him from the balcony to the street below.

When poor Hindo landed, they proceeded to beat him mercilessly.

Hindo died in this ruthless attack, and now justice must be served. Sign this petition urging police to fully investigate and prosecute all individuals involved in the killing of this innocent animal.

Russia: Stray Dogs and Football Just Dont Seem To Mix.

Stray dogs and football just don’t seem to get along.

Photo – Daily Mail (UK)


Please have a look at our recent post re stray dogs being killed in Morocco:


The reason for the shooting of the dogs is an upcoming visit from the FIFA, where the city should deliver a good picture. Namely, Morocco wants the 2026 World Cup to be held in the North African country.  Sadly, stray dogs are seen as a blight on the landscape – so Morocco wants to get rid of them – by shooting.


We have a petition link for Moroccan stray dogs – you can visit it here:


Unfortunately, Morocco is not the only place where stray dogs and the football elite seem to clash.   The World Cup is being held in Russia this year, 2018.


Russia is planning a mass slaughter of stray dogs ahead of the this year’s World Cup; despite assurances this will not happen, animal rights campaigners claim.

Some £1.4million has been assigned to host cities to pay for deployment of ‘canine KGB’ death squads, according to Ekaterina Dmitrieva, director of the City Animal Protection Foundation.

Animal campaigners are furious that FIFA is turning a blind eye to the ‘butchers’ and refusing to press the Russian government over the ‘scandal’.

Deputy premier Vitaly Mutko – Vladimir Putin’s ex-sports minister mired in controversy over the Russian doping scandal – recently ordered host cities to set up temporary animal shelters for the estimated two million strays in these locations.

But Dmitrieva insisted that that cash has been paid already to pay for armed teams – nicknamed ‘canine KGB hit squads’ – and poisons to wipe out homeless dogs and other animals.

She said: ‘The tenders have been signed, the money is sent to contractors.’

Her demands to switch the cash to sterilising, immunising and caring for the animals has been met with silence, she said.


Is this not typical – Serbia being another – cash which could be spent on sterilising, immunising and caring for the strays in properly run shelters is again being used to simply kill animals.  Governments and authorities appear to miss the fact that you cannot eradicate every stray dog in an area – and those left the cull will reproduce and gradually bring stray numbers back up to what they were before – or even more.  This action by stray death squads does nothing to resolve the long term issue of strays in any location.  It is a simple ‘short term hopeful fix’ by the authorities.  We predict that many strays will be back on the streets within a very short time.  Cities and towns may look squeaky clean whilst those oh so well behaved football fans roam the streets; but shooting strays to clean up any town is a short fix which will not last.  It appears that the Russian authorities, just like the Serbian government; are too thick min the head to understand this.

But then maybe they want the corruption associated with a never ending supply of stray dogs to be killed.  Some people in high places are getting very rich out of a never ending supply of strays which they can kill and claim back money off the government for.  In Serbia for example, just one stray killed can get a government bounty payment of up to 500 Euros  paid directly to regional authorities from government funds.  And the average wage in Serbia ? – about 300 Euros per month.

Big money to be made by some from endless stray dog killing as we have always said.  But the EU, OIE and the rest of the big players just do not really want to listen to us or more importantly, do anything about this corruption that is ‘stray dog control’.
