We Need Global Warming Legislation THIS YEAR!
When it comes to fighting global warming, we are running out of time.

Scientists tell us that we must stabilize the concentration of carbon dioxide pollution in the earth's atmosphere at 450 parts per million in order to avoid the catastrophic effects of global warming.

To reach this target, America needs to cut its CO2 pollution by 80% by 2050, which is a 2% reduction per year if we start NOW.

But enacting changes can take years, and we may not have a system in place until 2010 or later. The longer we delay, the deeper we have to cut to hit our 80% reduction target by 2050.

Stop Illegal Logging and Protect Wildlife Worldwide
Target: U.S. Senate

Incredibly, America has no law against importing illegally harvested wood into the U.S. Yet the insatiable demand for cheap wood products and luxury hardwoods in the United States, Europe and Japan drives illegal logging operations worldwide -- logging that destroys vital habitat for endangered orangutans, tigers, and other wildlife.

Take action now to save orangutans and other wildlife threatened by illegal logging. Urge your Senators to support the Combat Illegal Logging Act of 2007 (S.1930), legislation that would make it a crime in America to knowingly import, sell, buy or transport illegally-sourced wood and wood products.

Stop Dalhousie University from murdering dogs and puppies

Every year many animals are being dissected at Dalhousie University.

Kittens have had their eyes sewn shut at Dalhousie. Dogs, cats, rabbits, mice and rats are routinely stabbed with needles, tubes forced down their mouths, hearts and brains dissected while still alive.

This is unnecessary and cruel. Let's stop the animal testing forever.

The Bush Administration wants to sacrifice one of the world's most important ecosystems in Arctic Alaska to the oil industry. We need your help to stop it.

A million birds, more than 45,000 caribou (and other mammals), and seven Alaska Native communities depend on the unparalleled resources of the Teshekpuk Lake region.

Ninety percent of the region where the lake is located is already open to oil and gas development. This internationally-renowned ecosystem and the remarkable wildlife that inhabits it deserve protection.

Please tell the Bureau of Land Management: "Not on my watch. This is a sacrifice America must not make." You have a limited time to speak up.

The BLM is accepting public comments about Teshekpuk until November 6, but please sign the petition by October 29 so that we can ensure your comments are delivered before the final deadline.

Dear Friends,

Here I am again, asking for a personal favour. 

There is a vulture-cull underway again - this will be the 4th time - in Chesterfield County, Virginia (USA). 

What's really angering here is that there's been no studies done on these birds, little is known about the stability of this particular population, and worst of all?  The whole idea to mass-murder the flock of vultures was developed because fisherman at the boatramp complain that vultures are "damaging their cars" - yet they habitually litter in the area, discarding food and the butchered remains of unfortunate fish they catch, all of which attracted the birds' attention.

Please don't let ignorant loud-mouths dictate public policy.  Please don't let narrow-minded, prejudiced officials blame and persecute native wildlife for merely opportunistically responding to food sources - they are blaming these birds for merely existing.  

Killing these birds "because they are JUST vultures" is specieist and no different than racism or sexism.  Don't let the vultures be villified and killed - speak up for them!  Sign this petition to speak on their behalf:

This August the Bush administration proposed changes to the National Forest Management Act that would dismantle vital protections for our National Forests and grasslands and eliminate key federal protections for all wildlife in those areas ... including the still-struggling grizzly bear.
Habitat loss from logging and other activities is one of the greatest threats to grizzly bears in the lower 48 United States. Grizzlies in the Yellowstone region were just recently removed from the list of species protected under Endangered Species Act - they can't afford more destructive logging.

Sign to End Procter & Gamble Animal Testing 2:13 PM


P & G supposedly no longer uses dogs in their discusting testing practices, but they will not prove this or release any information to anyone. They evidently still test on rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice and rats. The helpless animals are burnt, blinded, poisoned, mutilated, and harmed in many other ways, including burning liquid being forced up their noses and being fed fragrances by tubes. They are not drugged before the psychotic testing is performed, which really would not have made it any more excusable. These animals are even harmed and killed in the worst ways imaginable for the sake of testing for the nutritional value of pet food. Please help in any way you can to stop Procter & Gamble from testing on these poor animals. There are many other alternatives.

Alert: PETITION: STOP Horse Fighting in Korea, China & Phillipines   Focus:Animal WelfareAction RequestetitionLocation:ChinaPLEASE SIGN & FORWARD TO HELP STOP THIS HORRIBLE "SPORT"! IT'S THE SAME AS DOG FIGHTING, JUST BIGGER ANIMAL'S AND JUST AS CRUEL!

Horse fighting has now been outlawed almost worldwide. It still thrives, however, in countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, China and South Korea. Brutal and inhumane, these spectacles can be anything from featured events in annual fiestas and thanksgiving festivals to scrappy events put together by locals for the purposes of an afternoon's gambling and entertainment, or to honor a special guest. Horse fighting takes place in city stadiums or abandoned playing fields in remote villages and provinces. In more highly populated areas they may also be conducted at a local racetrack.
<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]-->

Countries staging horse fights defend it as a cultural tradition that has gone on for hundreds of years, and resist any attempts to ban it. While tradition has long been used to legitimize horse fighting, money and gambling appears to be the real reason for its continued existence.

STOP IT NOW!  This petition will be sent to the United Nations with a request that they do something about putting pressure on these countries to stop the practices.

Copies will also be sent to the various Heads of state of the OFFENDING countries.

What you see in the picture is a horse bleeding to death. It's happening in a city in Romania. He was hit by a car and his owner decided to kill him to get rid of him. The only way he could think of doing that, was by cutting its throat....
This is happening in a European Union country that has absolutely no valid laws to protect animals from any form of cruelty or suffering.The worst that can happen in Romania to someone who hurts, tortures or kills an animal is to get a fine. That is, to pay a certain amount of money. In most cases, he will escape even that. Do you think that's fair? Is it possible to assess a life's worth in the amount of the fine???
Please,sign the petition for the Romanian animals.

Petition: extreme cruelty against animals in Mexico 


Against the existing impunity at the San Bernabé
Market, Almoloya de Juárez, State of México

The animals for sale, in its majority, are visible
sick; they are transported under deplorable and sadistical ways, without any
care even for those showing exposed fractures, bleeding or with visible wounds.
When they cannot hold on foot, they are hung with ropes to pretend they are
still strong enough. They totally lack medical attention, as well as water and
food. In case they die before getting to the place where they are normally
sacrificed, their entrails are thrown away right on the floor.      They are
called throw-away (or disposable) animals; they are kept with life up to the
last possible moment, while in a slow and lasting agony, because every pound of
living meat costs twice as much as the pound of dead meat.   

The market called San Bernabé is located in
Almoloya de Juárez, State of México; at this place the main merchandise are
mules, donkeys and horses, which are in extreme terrible state and with a total
lack of health regulations, thus violating consistently and permanently both:
the laws against animal cruelty and sanitary conditions.

Save Chimpanzees from the Bushmeat Trade!
Target: Congress
Sponsor: The Jane Goodall Institute

Chimpanzees are our closest human relatives – they have family bonds, make and use tools and show signs of language – and yet, humans are wiping them out.

Wild chimpanzee populations have plummeted in the last 20 to 30 years, and face more threats ahead. The bushmeat trade (the unsustainable hunting of wildlife) is a root issue endangering chimpanzees. To make this practice even worse, orphaned chimpanzee babies are typically sold in local markets and often end up in the pet trade after watching their mothers being brutally killed.

Hunters remove more than 1 million metric tons of bushmeat from the Congo Basin forests each year. In only one year, 15,000 carcasses from wild species passed through the markets in the city of Brazzaville - approximately 293 of them were chimpanzees.

It's time the U.S. stood up against the cruel practice pushing chimps and other endangered species to the brink of extinction.

This could have been her had she lived.
On Tuesday, June 5, 2007, in Lubbock, Texas, an 8 week old Dachshund puppy was beaten to death after her owner's boyfriend slammed her against a wall three times. The killer fled the scene but was eventually caught and arrested for charges of intoxication and evading arrest. The killer received no animal cruelty charges.

Did you know the dairy products you buy could be associated with baby calves being taken from their mothers just hours after birth and shipped away to live in cramped, filthy crates with barely enough room to move?

This shocking scenario is a sad reality for the young calves at Mendes Calf Ranch in Tipton, California. Take Action >>

The calves live by themselves in crates so small they can’t even turn around or lie down naturally. They have to contort their bodies simply to move around in the small space, which is often covered with their own excrement.

This confinement violates animal cruelty laws! Sign the petition to Free Baby Mendes – and the up to 12,000 other calves that Mendes confines every day of the year.

Land O’Lakes and Challenge Dairy are two of the major dairy producers who use milk from calves who were confined at Mendes Calf Ranch.

Let dairy corporations Land O’Lakes and Challenge Dairy know that these practices are unnecessary — and unacceptable!

Thank you for alerting Land O’Lakes and Challenge Dairy about what's going on at Mendes Calf Ranch — and telling them consumers won’t tolerate this horrible abuse!

Global warming is melting the Arctic at an alarming rate. This summer the Arctic ice cover was the smallest ever recorded. As a result, there really is a race on to grab up the oil, gas and other resources once protected by ice.

And the more oil and gas we burn, the faster the Arctic melts and the closer our planet comes to catastrophic climate change.

State Takes Pet Zebra
Christian Gray watched helplessly today as Department of Natural Resources officers loaded up his zebra and took him away.

He remembers back in October when he and his two young daughters brought Ziggy home from an exotic-animal zoo in Texas.

He said, "We raised him from two weeks-old... bottle-fed him for six months, three times a day."

Gray says now that Ziggy's gone, a part of the community is missing. Ziggy marched in parades and visited local schools and churches.

He said, "He's kind of like the neighborhood pet. Everybody came and fed and played with him and talked to him."

State biologist Todd Nims says zebras need a special license, because they aren't natural to Georgia and aren't domesticated.

He said, "I don't wake up every day going, 'You know, I'm going to take somebody's pet.' But the person who got the animal without permission is the one that basically is ultimately at fault."

A wild animal license is free if the owner proves the animal is for exhibit and is well cared for. Gray says he didn't know Ziggy needed a license. He says he would have gotten one today, but DNR officers told him it was too late.

Nims says if Gray wants Ziggy back now, he'll have to go to superior court. Gray says he's prepared for that, but there's one thing he's not prepared for.

"My daughters... they're going to be heartbroken when I have to tell them after school today that their zebra's gone," he said.

Gray says he's talking with his lawyer to figure out what to do next. He says he's prepared to fight to bring Ziggy home.

DNR said they took Ziggy to a safe place that's licensed to have zebras. They say he'll be kept there until he goes back home to Bolingbroke or to a different permanent home.

IT’S NOT COOL TO BE CRUEL!To: America’s Professional Sports Leagues


The violent subculture of dog fighting has entered the world of professional sports and entertainment in America. The pending grand jury indictment of Atlanta Falcons star quarterback Michael Vick for alleged connections to dog fighting has caused the National Football League to bar Vick from reporting to the beginning of training camp.

Illegal dog fighting is horrifically cruel for the dogs, but also is closely associated with violence, weapons, illegal gambling and drugs.

We, the undersigned, urge America’s major sports leagues—the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer to help stop participation and support of dog fighting by taking the following actions:

  • Announce policies condemning dog fighting as a horrifically cruel, illegal activity that will not be tolerated
  • Establish stiff penalties, including fines and suspensions, for any high profile athlete or league employee who associates in any way with dog fighting
  • Cooperate fully with investigations of athletes alleged to be involved in dog fighting
  • Cooperate with Best Friends and other animal welfare groups to promote ways to eradicate dog fighting

In July 2007, Yvette Warsham, an alleged notorious backyard breeder of boxer dogs in Newnan, Georgia was charged with animal cruelty.  Ms. Warsham was allegedly well known to Georgia Department of Natural Resources and animal control agencies in several municipalities and the record of attempts by rescue and humane agencies to bring this abuse to light go back several years.  After multiple reports of cruelty were made in July 2007 to Coweta County Animal Control an officer was dispatched to Ms. Warsham's residence, where he found "Sonny" an 11 year old female boxer who was unable to stand or move from her urine and feces soaked mattress in the yard.  Join us in asking the elected officials of Georgia, Coweta County and the city of Newnan to prosecute this case vigorously and to impose the most severe penalty possible upon Yvette Warsham.  We also ask that the officials we have elected ensure that animal control and care ordinances and laws are upheld to the letter and that animal abuse is no longer ignored!

Take Action for World Farm Animals Day
Published 09/07/07
World Farm Animals Day is October 2, and the Animal Protection Institute is offering several tools to help you speak out for farmed animals.
Every year billions of animals are raised and killed for human consumption. In the U.S. alone, more than 10 billion land animals are slaughtered annually. (Billions more fish are raised and killed in fish "farms" or are taken from oceans, rivers, and lakes.)
In addition, as API uncovered last year, farmed animals are often forced to endure long periods of grueling travel. Our investigation documented the transport of live cows within the U.S. and the transport of pigs from the U.S. to Mexican slaughterhouses.
Animals can legally be transported for up to 28 hours, but this law is rarely if ever enforced. Even if enforced, 28 hours is far too long to assure the well-being of transported farm animals.
Ways You Can Help

Cincinnati Zoo Sending Domestic Cats To Research Lab!!
7 years ago

The Cincinnati Zoo is sending small, domestic cats to a research lab, as part of the zoo's "breeding program". This is wrong for two obvious reasons: 1. Animal cruelty in any form, is wrong. 2. We already have a huge problem with too many homeless cats in the world. It is irresponsible for the zoo to be breeding more cats, in a world that kills cats because there are already too many of them. Please, help us to save innocent domestic cats from being subjected to horrible experiments!

Sign: Stop Bear Farming, Bile Extraction from Bears
7 years ago

Stop Bear Farming and Bile Extraction From Bears. Bring in strict and stringent laws to stop the sale of Bile Extraction from Bears.

rescued bear

catheters implanted into the gall bladder to extract bile (Image: Reuters/China Newsphoto)

A diagnostic kit to crack down on illegal trade in bile extracted from live bears is being used by Australian and Canadian customs officers, an animal welfare group says.
Bear bile is a common ingredient in traditional medicines throughout East and Southeast Asia, says the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA).

The test kit uses antibodies to detect a signature bear protein and was demonstrated this week at a meeting in The Hague of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITE, which involves 171 nations.

"Interest from wildlife trade enforcement officials has been very strong," says Professor Kate Sanders, an evolutionary biologist who adapted a technique used to identify species in venomous snakebites to develop the kit.

The kits are slated to go on the market at the end of the year and will cost no more than US$40 (A$47), says Sanders, from Australia 's University of Adelaide.

Theactive compound in bear bile is ursodeoxcholic acid (UDCA) and is thought to be effective for ailments ranging from liver disorders to haemorrhoids to hepatitis.

The compound has been available in a synthetic form for years, say animal rights groups calling for an end to bear farming.

Yet the use of bear bile is still widespread, a WSPA survey released this week shows.

More than half of 130 traditional Asian medicine shops in eight countries investigated illegally-sold products containing bear bile, the survey shows.

The WSPA says most originated from China, where the fluid is drawn off using one of several painful methods from more than 7000 animals held in box-like cages on dozens of farms. The procedure is not illegal in China, but CITES bans all cross-border commerce in bear parts.

The survey of Asian medicine shops in North America and the Asia Pacific region uncovered dozens of illegal bear bile products.

About 15% of the stores investigated in the US and Canada sold the contraband, with the percentage increasing to 22% in Singapore, 33% in Korea, 42% in Taiwan and 75% in Japan.

Cruel methods

The methods used to extract the bile from farmed animals varies from one country to the next, but all are condemned by animal welfare groups as cruel.

"In Vietnam, farmers typically immobilise the bears with a paralysing drug, often ketamine," known to recreational drug users as 'special K', says Dave Eastham, head of wildlife for WSPA.

"They use ultrasound to locate the bile and then insert a long hypodermic needle to draw off 100 to 150 millilitres of bile," he says, repeating the process once a month. The bears are conscious throughout the process.

"We have tapes showing the bears screaming with apprehension just before the procedure begins," he says.

In China, a more primitive technique has been outlawed but Eastham says it "is still very common".

The bile drips from a tube - surgically inserted through the bear's abdomen- equipped with a tap that can be turned on and off. Extractions are daily, sometimes twice a day.

It is like bleeding sap from a maple tree, "only more painful", he says.

More than half of bears farmed for bile in China do not survive for very long after extraction begins, but those that do can live for up to 10years.

The Bush/Cheney Administration's politically-motivated draft "recovery plan" for northern spotted owls threatens to undermine years of progress in protecting these owls and the old-growth forests they need to survive.

Urge officials at the Fish & Wildlife Service to scrap the current plan and reconvene the Northern Spotted Owl Recovery Team to develop a real recovery plan that benefits the spotted owl, not just the timber industry.

There's just a few days left to take action. The Fish & Wildlife Service will only be accepting comments on this draft recovery plan until this Friday, August 24th, so thank you for standing up for the northern spotted owl today.
