protest against the massacre of dogs in Romania, war dogs in the middle of Europe.

Dear Mr. Schulz,

We turn in the names of many animal rights activists and deeply horrified citizens to you.
We hereby urge you to take action against the brutal mass killing of thousands of innocent stray animals in Romania immediately. We do not tolerate that the EU and as your President, continue to stand idly by in an unprecedented bloodbath in Europe! There is inconsistent, that you one hand on behalf of the EU, the “Nobel Peace Prize 2012 “received and then on the other hand a war against dogs and cats in Europe are let. animals a solid and worthy of protection component our society and should not be excluded from life, nor from the law or ethical-moral values ​​in Europe.

The situation in Romania has dramatically intensified a week ago as a young boy allegedly said to have been killed by stray dogs. The media played the event incredibly high, and sparked a targeted mass hysteria of the population, which began immediately all stray dogs in a brutal way to kill, to shoot or to light alive. A few days later, the government used this staged on 10.09.2013 mood to a euthanasia law that the killing of all stray animals in Romania provides to decide. Since an incredible slaughter of the animals takes place in Bucharest alone threatens 65 000 dogs, the cruel death. Animal welfare organizations have had to close their offices, animal rights activists fear for their lives. Due to many inconsistencies in the case, has now confirmed that the little boy was NOT killed by street dogs, but probably should have been the victim of a pedophile crime. , it gives the impression that this is a long-cherished plan staged perfidious from the Romanian government implemented was. The Romanian government of President Traian Basescu tried for years the “euthanasia law PL912” against the resistance of the animal rights activists assert. Between 2004 and 2009, an incredible 10 million street dogs were killed in Romania! In a figurative sense, this is a “genocide” in dogs as it has never existed before. There were almost as many dogs killed as the entire population of Romania! The brutality with which animals are killed is unprecedented. The dogs were hanged, living doused with acid, they were living with the Flex sawed off the paws, etc.

 

By now enforced euthanasia law of this cowardly murders will continue.
Romania shows that, once again, that it is not a civilized country and not having moral maturity to be a member of the EU. The problem of street dogs resulted solely from the irresponsibility of the people who threw these animals on the road they are not neutered and did not care about them. Instead of taking responsibility for the animals and humane and civilized way to decimate the population of the animals by castration and consistent to adopt, there is the Romanian government only cold-blooded murder as a supposed solution. Numerous studies show that killing does not lead to the decimation of the population. There are many NGOs and Romanian animal rights activists who have made ​​and shown outstanding work in recent years, how to by neuter & release measures, and care can effectively and humanely manage the problem of street dogs. fact that Romania against the Constitutional Court represents, and to date, the implementation of appropriate and ethical measures of population control (WHO) has refused, a perfidious background. In Romania, a lucrative business model has evolved to earn the dog hunter, municipalities and mayors million euros with the murder of stray animals.

Up to € 250 per dog paid by municipalities to animal shelters for accommodation. Funds are part of EU funds and in any case tax dollars and mean certain death for the dogs . Man looking at tendering the cheapest shelter, where the animals are after arrival often equal murdered or die of starvation – causes zero cost – brings 100% profit.
more aggressive and dangerous dogs in the media can be shown, the more one has the legitimacy to . assassinate a lucrative business, also funded by EU.

We therefore urge you to review the payment and appropriate use of EU funds in Romania and to end this possible misuse of EU funds.  it can not be that every tax-paying EU citizens is made ​​involuntarily to the dog killer, because with these funds will subsidize the killing of dogs!

It’s bad that it could come in Romania so far, especially against the background that we animal rights activists, both you, Mr Schulz, including all MEP `s in the last few years constantly on the murder of millions of stray animals and the use of EU agents have noted, interspersed with information, pictures and facts into knowledge. Countless petitions Written Declarations and protests were addressed to the European Parliament, many delegations from animal rights activists traveled to Brussels for talks. All that remained without significant changes and achievements.
We do not take longer accept that you and the EU Parliament will continue to stand idly such a inhumane and criminal goings-on in Romania and can thus be exploited for the local system.

For discussions and assistance in the management of street dogs we like are available.

Sincerely yours

Princess Maja von Hohenzollern (animal rights activist)
Dieter Ernst (President ETN eV )
Petra Zipp ( Chairman bmt eV)

No Justice for Raider

Update on Petition that was started early 2012…and she was just sentenced this May of 2013

pwXqWPRGpNYgsag-556x313-noPad

Sarah Rust from Indiana. Found guilty of animal abuse.

Sarah Rust: Jail time from May 08,2013 till June 14,2013.

Then, 275 days on probation under Hamilton County Community Corrections that was then filed under the Residential Project Contract. She is not to consume any alcohol or be in a place where alcohol is the primary product served. She has to participate in anger counseling, and a CARE evaluation and treatment.

The petition is not a victory although it was delivered to the targets and although she was found guilty.  

She did not get the maximum penalty for Class D Felony she committed and because she still gets to be around animals. For a class D Felony the maximum is 3 years in the state of Indiana.

The petition is now closed. As it is done for each petition, we wanted to give the end result of the justice system. This time, it has failed for animals. We will not give up as long as we have the support and dedication of caring animal advocates.

 Thank you very much to all that signed and shared the petition.

Today, a fellow friend of animals sent the following article written for The Huntington Post :

Three Hawthorne Police Officers Go Off Street Duty After Shooting Dog

It explains: Three police officers have been pulled from street duty for their safety in Southern California after a widely circulated video showed an officer fatally shooting a Rottweiler and drew numerous death threats. Hawthorne police spokesman Lt. Scott Swain told the Daily Breeze, the decision is for the officers’ safety after the uniformed officer shot the dog four times on Sunday. http://bit.ly/14OwxK8

Our Thoughts:

Seriously? The police are afraid of Animal Advocates? Animal advocates care saving lives not killing! They have to end this stupid comments that Animal Advocates are dangerous! Not even in situations of the Animal Liberation Front has a human ever died! They liberate animals and destroy property but never taken a single human life! Why send out a press release in which lies are being told? 

Karma will take care of those that are unfair! And I know these 3 will get back everything that they did…and it will make them feel the pain that Max and his human companion felt. Does the police really think that they will change the focus of the story? The safety of the police? I would say that the citizens are now safe that those three cops are off the streets? Who are they kidding?

The video shows the truth from any angle. Abuse of power and lack of common sense! The man that shot the dog lacks common sense. They should know that when a dog is going to attack the dog will not approach and look and wait for an answer from his human guardian like Max did. No matter from what angle the video is seen, the dog approaches and looks back and forth to the people attacking his friend. He knows nothing about uniforms…he just knows people attacking his friend. There was no need to draw the gun, the dog did not reach to attack anyone. His owner begged, the dog was looking for comfort. The man was not going to run…cause he had nothing to hide. If he would have wanted to escape he would have from the start. He surrender and offer no resistance to arrest, he just asked…”why.”

If police would have been smart…they would have allowed the man take the dog back to the car and calm him down. This could have been done without taking off the cuffs. Then police calls for a family member to take the dog or they call animal services to pick him up until the man arrested can pick the pup up. Unfortunately, dogs are seen as property in certain states…but if the dog lived in the house being investigated…then he was part of the evidence and he had no right to temper the “evidence.” Why didn’t any if the cops there think of anything of anything?! Why…because they have no training and they don’t respect sentient beings! If the cops action is said to be the right action at that moment…then how come other officers did not draw their guns? Why…because they knew there was no need to shoot the pup. Only one coward…one coward…thought it was the right thing to shoot an animal. BAD DECISION MAKING AND JUST A PREPOTENT RESPONSE ! #Justice4Max

The following is a letter by one of our Facebook Friends; Christine Martin. She is being a voice for Bridges. Bridges is no longer with us and has crossed over the rainbow bridge. She sent us this letter in order to gain support and for people to know Bridges’ story. Please take the time to read and take action in order for the terrible thing that happen to Bridges not to happen again to another animal. We are all a voice to animals. They need our support and signature. Please, Read, Sign, Join and Share!
Dear Hand4Paws,

I’m writing to you in regards to a sad case involving a young German Shepherd (named Bridges) who’d been rescued from a High Kill shelter in Georgia after he’d been dumped there when the young man that owned him died of cancer. After surviving at this shelter for some time, Bridges was finally rescued and was sent to a boarding facility in Butts County before being transported to his new home. During his stay at this boarding facility, Bridges was shot and killed by the owner Jose Ortiz (who was later found to be operating this boarding facility illegally). Bridges survived a high kill shelter but didn’t survive this boarding facility and Bridges never made it to his new home.

Even though no charges have yet been brought against Jose Ortiz, the Georgia Humane Society is now involved and are pursuing criminal charges of animal cruelty against Mr. Ortiz.I’m writing to your organization to ask whether you and your members would like to sign a Petition at the Care2 Petition Site (sponsored by Lauren Bjorklund) which is seeking Justice for Bridges: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/627/019/957/justice-for-bridges-the-sad-and-neglected-german-shepherd-shot-by-boarding-owner/?cid=FB_Share
We’d also really appreciate it if you would check out the “Honor for Bridges” Facebook page and share it with friends since the more people that know about this case, the less likely that other animals will share the same fate as Bridges:http://www.facebook.com/HonorForBridges
This is the new poster by the Georgia Humane Society on Bridge’s story (which shows a photo of Jose Ortiz one day after he shot and killed Bridges):http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388172201254640&set=a.344832305588630.79675.344519782286549&type=1&theater

Dolores speaks about animal cruelty in South Africa (Petition link included)

5 Jun

Outrages acts of animal cruelty in South Africa.

It is time that the South African Government stops sticking its head in the sand and stamps out the injustice being done to animals. Stupidity and ignorance on the part of the government is not acceptable.
Yes there is a very large population of under educated South Africans but does that give them the right to torture animals just to do it? The people whether poor or uneducated are just randomly torturing for fun. This is horrendous and they need to be punished. They are taking a life of an animal that has done nothing but try to co-exist in a State that is poverty stricken. Why allow this torture to continue?
If these random acts of abuse and cruelty continue it will manifest to the next generation and so on. These tortures are unnecessary and cruel and without any consequence to the people doing these acts it will never stop. Poverty and lack of a good education is a poor excuse for the South African Government to allow such atrocities to continue.
The South African Government needs to be held accountable for these acts of violence. They need to charge these people, no matter where they live with a fine and possibly incarceration. If this was done maybe after a few fines were levied the abusers would realize that the deed does not justify the added burden and stress on their families.
Being underprivileged or undereducated is not an excuse. Laws need to be put into place now. The longer the South African Government turns its head and looks away from these abusers the more abusers will pop up and continue to torture, maim and kill the animals. Every day that the government does nothing, more animals are horribly tortured; some for pure fun, some because there is nothing else to do, some just because they can. How sad is that?
The United States has many organizations going to Africa to help the people, why can’t the South African justice system step up to the plate and try to implement today a law to help these innocent animals?
It is time to do something. Wake up and do what it right. Stop the animal abuse in South Africa. It starts with your justice system, do the right thing and do something now. Break the cycle.

Albuquerque, New Mexico:  Albuquerque police were called to a motel on Monday January 16 to investigate a report of a disturbance. Upon arriving at the motel, officers found Baslio Gavilan disorderly and violating the motels no alcohol policy. Police informed Mr. Gavilan that he would need to leave the premises. Mr. Gavilan became angered and proceeded to pick up “Bongo” the puppy and throw the puppy in the air. Bongo landed on his head.

Gavilan’s girlfriend claims to be the owner of the puppy Bongo. Bongo is at the Albuquerque animal shelter and has been under observation. Thankfully, he does not appear to have any permanent damage. He is being held as evidence in this case.

We respectfully request that if found guilty, Baslio Gavilan be charged with the maximum penalty for animal abuse and that Mr. Gavlian be banned from owning animals. We further request that Bongo not be returned to Mr. Gavlian.
