USA: Presindent Obama Was Wise With His Actions- So Trump Has To Do The Opposite – Is This Now To Allow Trump Sons To Go For Big Kill ?

The U.S. government wants to allow bloodthirsty hunters to slaughter endangered elephants and bring their carcasses as trophies back to the United States.

Elephant trophy imports were prohibited in 2014 in an effort to help save this species — but now, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to reverse the ban, encouraging Americans to start slaughtering elephants in Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Not surprisingly, the plan was pushed by wealthy hunters and Safari Club International, who lobbied along with the National Firearm Association to lift the ban — only serving to benefit America’s richest, at the elephants’ expense.

African elephant populations are plummeting, with 30,000 killed every year by poachers and trophy hunters. With even more hunting, these amazing animals may not stand a chance.

Lobbyists wrongly claim that because money from trophy hunts is supposed to go toward conservation, more hunting will somehow help increase elephant populations. But this has been proven false — and with Zimbabwe’s government notoriously corrupt, and in turmoil with a recent coup, what oversight will exist to ensure that any of the money goes to protect a single elephant?

This deadly plan must be abandoned at once. Sign now to tell President Trump and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to leave the ban intact, so no elephants are ruthlessly killed and brought to the U.S. as sickening “trophies.”

England: Slaughterhouse cctv Consultation Now Closed – Hopefully Legislation Soon.

A comment on the dancing butcher.

 

“To be happy, a butcher does not need good or crown
Work has its own reward! “(Bertolt Brecht)

And this is a dance of death in a slaughterhouse in Sao Paolo!
In the presence of enthusiastic colleagues, a butcher organizes a dance of death in Samba style.
He proves the last tribute to the slaughtered animal by dancing with it.
With the knife in his hand yet, he bows to his dance partner and thus completes the act of death.

For me the tragedy of this show is in his conviction that only the pig is dead.
But in reality, the butcher himself is dead, only he does not know, that’s the tragedy of history.
Empathy, respect, sensitivity, even professionalism, everything is dead inside him.

He could not dance a better presentation of his bluntness, of his moral mutilation.
It’s the death dance of zombies.
A moral corpse, that’s what he is, what they are all human carnivores.

 

Best regards

Venus

Now here in England we have reached a major position in this campaign.

Whilst many of us would love to see all the slaughterhouses entirely closed down, the government has announced that it intends to install cctv in all areas of all slaughterhouses where animals are present.  Crucially, slaughterhouse vets (which are required by law) will be allowed unrestricted access to all of the footage.

This is a significant amount of progress in a long and hard campaign. We welcome the proposals but like many others, still say that you can never make the process of killing animals cruelty free.  In the very welcome consultation, which does take the views of all sides involved, there have been demands from welfare groups to allow for proper independent spot checking of footage.

The consultation period has now closed, but welfare organisations are keeping up the pressure to ensure that all the plans are implemented.  There are also campaigns in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; which along with England make up the whole of the UK, to introduce similar legislation

There has been good news in Scotland where the Scottish Parliament has pledged to also hold a consultation on the issue.

Hopefully soon we will witness new cctv legislation in both England and Scotland.   This is a major victory for the welfare groups who at the end of the day are trying to get the best they can for animals.

We will continue to update on this important issue whenever we have more news. 

You can best help by going Vegan and preventing any animals from going to slaughter in the first place!

Mark.
