SAV.  We have had the following in from Venus in Germany.  The German General Election is in September; but whatever your political bias; things are not looking very positive for animals and their welfare.  We share in the despair – no better with Trump in the US; the EU does nothing positive; just people looking after their own interests – not even considering others !

But the fighting and campaigning will go on regardless.

The following is the in edited message from Venus:

Dear Mark,

the association animal public e:V has made a survey to the five parliamentary parties.

They wanted to know how these parties were thinking about animal protection, and what they would decide about the lives of millions of animals. So that the German citizen knows who to give his voice to.

I find the results catastrophic, especially from the parties, which unfortunately and most likely will come to the coalition.

Just for reference, here is another of our recent posts and why Venus will not vote – have a look:

https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2017/08/13/germany-why-i-do-not-vote-the-political-system-of-germany-and-the-eu-is-too-corrupt-for-any-animal-welfare/

 

Here is my article about it.

On September 24, the federal elections are held in Germany.

The association animal public.e.V has sent a list of ten questions to all parties which are expected to move into the Bundestag, with a request to tick with “yes” or “no”.

Some of these questions were in the past the subject of petitions here in Germany, which were ignored by the Merkel government.

Sure, many animal protectionists remember how many petitions and demonstrations for the ban on wild animals in circus we have done. Without success.

The parties in order, are:

  1. Christian Democrats (Conservatives),

  2. the Socialists,

  3. the Liberals,

  4. the Left and

  5. the Greens.

 

The extreme right did not answer.

The questions were:

  1. ban on wild animals in circuses,

  2. the end of the dolphinariums,

  3. amendment of the Hunting Act,

  4. import ban on wild animals for private purposes,

  5. prohibiting commercial animal exchanges,

  6. positive list for the private keeping of wild animals,

  7. recognizing the fundamental rights of great apes,

  8. the right to legal action for animal welfare associations,

  9. Federal Commissioner for animal welfare,

  10. amendment of the zoological legislation.

One notices of the many “no” of the strongest parties of Germany that after the elections everything will be like before the elections, namely absolutely nothing new and certainly nothing good for the animals.

I predict a stupid and harmful coalition between Merkel and Schulz, and this will also be fatal consequences not only for Germany, but for many other countries of Europe that are politically and economically dependent on Germany. Because Germany is Europe.

Above – Merkel;

Below (left) – Schultz – the other person is Junker – Mr EU.

 

And there will be no good for the animals. The only parties who have responded with the most “yes” are “the Left” and the “Greens”; But the first has no power, and the second has not shown any political fairness.

I really do not know who is hoping for something good against animal suffering and the animal miseries in Germany with these elections. I certainly do not!

 

My best Regards to you all

UK: American Owner Of Uk Football Team Launches A Television Channel About Trophy Hunting – And Gets A Backlash From Many Including England Cricketers.

 

SAV Comment – Kevin Pietersen is a very well known England cricket player.  Well done him for speaking up in support of the animals and against hunting.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke branded ‘scum’ by Kevin Pietersen, who urges fans to ‘drive him’ out of the club

Exclusive: The American billionaire is facing a fierce backlash after launching a television channel that documents trophy killings of endangered animals

Kevin Pietersen has launched a fierce attack on Arsenal owner, Stan Kroenke, labelling the American “scum” after the company he owns launched a new television channel documenting barbaric bloodsports.

The former England cricketer, who is raising awareness about illegal poaching of rhinos in South Africa, has also called on Arsenal supporters to do everything they can to ensure majority shareholder Kroenke is “driven out” of the Premier League club.

Kevin Pietersen – A Voice Speaking Out Against Hunting.

 

“I find it sickening that anyone could want to endanger these animals whatsoever, but for someone to turn it into a TV show for entertainment absolutely boils my blood,” Pietersen exclusively told The Independent. “The guy, and those who contribute and support those practices, are scum.

 

“Enough is enough. These stunning animals are being slaughtered to the point of extinction and for anyone to celebrate it is absolutely repugnant.

“I’ve had so many messages from Arsenal fans telling me they hate him as much as anyone, so if that’s the case, he has to be driven out. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want this person representing something I love.”

These animals don’t have a voice, but we do.

If we don’t do anything, no-one will.

Kevin Pietersen

 

Kroenke faced a heavy backlash following revelations in The Times that his company, Kroenke Sport Entertainment, is responsible for the UK launch of My Outdoor TV [MOTV] through its entity Outdoor Sportsman Group.

The channel will screen shows that follow hunters across the globe, primarily in Africa where big-money hunting trips are available, and involve various ways of killing wild animals that includes by bow and arrows and by guns.

Arsenal owner launches ‘sickening’ bloodsports TV channel in the UK

 

One programme shows a presenter shooting a critically endangered African elephant before the bull turns and charges at him. Two more shots are heard before the animal falls to the ground and dies.

“There’s no other feeling in the world quite like walking up on your bull elephant,” the man says to the camera.

Another show, called Dark Continent Quest, features huntress Jana Waller and her travels across the world killing animals with a bow and arrow. One episode shows Ms Waller killing a hartebeest in South Africa, with the arrow hitting the animal before it runs away. Ms Waller and her guide, John Faul, wait for the animal to bleed to death before approaching it.

“It’s a good shot. Definitely, some liver and some lungs hit,” says Mr Faul while the animal is still alive.

Ms Waller adds “the shot was a little far back for me, but one shot did it,” before holding up the hartebeest’s “beautiful heart shaped horns”.

It has caused a wave of criticism aimed at Kroenke, particularly from Arsenal supporters given that the American billionaire owns 67 per cent of the club’s shares. The channel has also been dubbed the “Netflix of the hunting world” by its supporters, who are willing to pay $9.99 [£7.60] a month for the subscription.

Switzerland: News From Venus Re Hunting.

 

Dear Mark,

 

I received this pleasing information a few days ago and wanted to make it public.

It is about an initiative of the Swiss animal party to bribe hobby hunting and to organize forest guardians for nature and animals in the forest.

In Canton Geneva is the private hunting since 9. Mai 1974 prohibited. It is replaced by the so-called administrative hunting in which the hunting duties of cantonally hunted hunters, the gamekeepers are concerned.

 

I translate the article from the Wild Animal Protection Society:

 

On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) submitted the national initiative “gamekeeper instead of hunters” to the canton of Zurich.

Over 7,000 signatures have been collected. Now, the Zurich voters will decide whether the wild animals in the canton of Zurich will be professionally supervised by a modern game management and thus the hobby-hunting will be abolished as leisure pleasure

“The popular saying ‘To care and to tend’, which is popular among hunters, for the justification of a bloody hobby is an old myth”, says the co-founder and president of the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) Monika Heierli-Rutishauser, “today it is scientifically proven that nature regulates itself.

This statement is confirmed by a variety of positive experiences in regions which are free of hunting grounds, including the Wild conservation region of the city of Zurich.

It is now known that the hunting of the wild animals does not lead to a regulation of the stock, but is the cause of the problem, since the fertility (birthrate) of the wild animals increases by the hunt!

 

The initiative demands that the stock of wild animals be given the opportunity to regulate themselves in the future, and therefore relies on modern, supportive wildlife management by professionally trained gamekeepers. This will abolish today’s hobby-hunting, and will lead to various positive effects, as can be read in the initiative text and its explanation.

 

My best Regards to you and all

Venus

Dear Mark — Founder ‘Serbian Animals Voice’,


Cecil the lion’s six-year-old son, Xanda, has been killed almost exactly on the second anniversary of his own death, which caused international outcry over the cruelty of trophy hunting.

Just like Cecil, Xanda, a young father himself, was lured away from the safety of a national park in Zimbabwe. Also like Cecil, Xanda was wearing a research collar and was an important part of a long-term study on lions.

Killing Cecil and Xanda shows a shocking display of disrespect for these imperiled animals and the unnecessary killing of these majestic creatures just for bragging rights and a head-hunting exercise.



The tide is turning against trophy hunting around the world as a result of Cecil’s death—and the killing of his son will only add to that momentum.

Please sign our pledge to take a stand against this senseless cruelty.

Can we rely on President Trump to be a voice of the USA against this trophy hunting ? – NO; he supports the hunting and killing of any beautiful animal by sons ‘dim and dimmer’.

Denmark / Faroe Islands: Nothing Changes After Our Actions 27 Years Ago !

 

It seems like a lifetime – Joanne, Mark and Trevor were out campaigning about this slaughter back around 19990 / 91.  Very sadly, in this modern age, it still continues, some 27 years or so after they hit the streets.

See more and a photo on ‘About Us’ – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-us/  –  ‘Superstore Protestors Seek End To Slaughter’.  Just below the pictures of Joanne.

Sea turns red as 200 whales massacred by Faroe Islanders in annual ritual

 

Animal rights groups say that the hunting method, known locally as ‘Grindarap’, must end.

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/sea-turns-red-200-whales-massacred-by-faroe-islanders-annual-ritual-1627113

Animal rights campaigners have reported details of the the latest Grindarap – an annual event in the Faroe Islands where locals round up and massacre huge families of whales.

The sea turned red as the blood of an estimated 150-200 mammals were sliced to death by hunters from the Danish islands, located in the Norwegian Sea.

The Grindarap is believed to date back as far as 1584. It is a method of whaling that drives entire pods of whales and dolphins towards beaches by trapping them with small boats and missiles.

The prey, typically short-finned pilot whales migrating through the Norwegian Sea in the summer, are then set upon other hunters armed with knives and lances.

There are usually a series of hunts in close succession to one another at this time of year. The whale meat is eaten by locals.

Various campaign groups have demanded that the practice, which is legal, be stamped out.

“The animals slowly bleed to death. Whole families are slaughtered, and some whales swim around in their family members’ blood for hours.

“Whales and dolphins are highly intelligent creatures and feel pain and fear every bit as much as we do,” PETA said.
