Halt animal testing

Sarah Farr - Silver Spring, Md.

I actually jumped for joy when I read that the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Toxicology Program and the National Institutes of Health have begun a program that will phase out toxicity testing on animals in favor of more effective and cost efficient testing methods ("Three U.S. agencies aim to end animal testing," News, Feb. 15).

The shift toward non-animal testing methods, such as human cell-based tests, will result in more accurate, applicable data and will ensure greater safety for humans. But it also will save hundreds of thousands of animals.

Animals used in toxicity tests and other experimental research suffer terribly in laboratory cages. They also can feel great physical pain when toxic chemicals are tested on them.

We are fortunate to have advanced technologies that allow researchers to develop remarkably accurate testing methods. Now we can protect animals by relying less on rats, mice and other animals commonly used in experiments.

As you may know, the Humane Society's undercover video showing animal abuse at Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing has launched the biggest beef recall in United States History. What you may not know is that the two undocumented workers in the video who were charged with felonies have disappeared! Of course, without these two guys around, the Justice Department can't prove the company management knew anything about what was going on. One of them, Westland President Steve Mendell, has already said he was "shocked and horrified" by the video. Yeah, right. The district attorney said prosecutors would have to show management had knowledge of the activities to prosecute. Your comments are always welcome. Peace, Tom M.

BANGKOK, Thailand - The critically endangered Sumatran tiger will become extinct unless Indonesia takes swift action to clamp down on the illegal sale of the big cats' body parts across the Southeast Asian country, conservationists say.

ADVERTISEMENT

TRAFFIC, a British-based international wildlife trade monitoring network, said it found tiger bones, claws, skins and whiskers being sold openly in eight cities on Indonesia's Sumatra island in 2006, despite tough laws banning such trade.

The group estimated that 23 tigers had been killed to supply the parts found for sale in souvenir, Chinese medicine and jewelry stores. Prices ranged from the equivalent of $14 for a tiger claw to about $52.50 per pound of tiger bones.

"Surveys continue to show that Sumatran tigers are being sold body part by body part into extinction," said a statement issued by Susan Lieberman, director of the species program for the conservation group WWF, which contributed to the report.

The Sumatran tiger, or Panthera tigris sumatrae, is the world's most critically endangered tiger subspecies — WWF estimates fewer than 400 remain in the wild in comparison to about 1,000 in the 1970s. The tigers' diminishing population is largely blamed on poaching and the destruction of their forest habitat for palm oil and wood pulp plantations.

"This is an enforcement crisis," Lieberman's statement said, adding that Indonesia needs to demonstrate it can cope with the crisis or ask for help from the international community.

Indonesia launched a 10-year plan to protect the Sumatran tiger in December last year. But conservationists complain that Indonesian commitments to preserving wildlife are rarely supported by enforcement measures.

"There is no effective enforcement on the ground," said Chris Shepherd, senior program officer for TRAFFIC, who has been tracking the Indonesian tiger trade for nearly 15 years. "It boils down to lack of resources. Wildlife crime isn't viewed as a high priority in Indonesia or anywhere in Southeast Asia."

Tonny Soehartono, the country's director for biodiversity conservation in the Ministry of Forestry, said efforts were being made to crack down on the illegal wildlife trade. He did not elaborate.

"I believe we have made significant progress," he said.

Wildlife CSI

hnchiew@thestar.com.my

A new documentary on Animal Planet deals with wildlife trafficking.

WITHOUT the visuals, one could easily mistake the following remarks as taking place in a pet store:

“This is our cat aisle.”

“This particular cat just came in less than a year ago.”

But the reality is far more hideous – the aisle is filled with big cat products: skin, bones, wine, pills and medicinal plasters. That particular cat is a dead tiger, gutted and preserved for its skin.

The aisle is in the warehouse of the United States Fish and Wildlife Services, which stores over a million confiscated items, accounting for 10% of the illegal volume in wildlife trade of the country. Even though big cats such as tigers, snow leopards and lions are prohibited from trade under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites), that has not stopped them from being poached from the wild.

Steve Galster (left) of Wild Alliance in the warehouse of the United States Fish and Wildlife Services, which is filled with seized illegally traded wildlife products such as skin, bones, wine, pills and medicinal plasters.

The trade in big cats is one of six episodes in the latest Animal Planet documentary, Crime Scene Wild, which deals with the unsavoury issue of wildlife trafficking. Helming the show is wildlife crime investigator Steve Galster of Wildlife Alliance, formerly known as WildAid, the conservation outfit that had roped in celebrities for its campaign with the catchy tagline “When the buying stops, the killing can too”.

Traversing the globe and piecing together trafficking links of syndicates profiteering from the slaughter of not just large cats but also elephants, Tibetan antelopes, sharks, rare primates and bears, Galster takes viewers into the underworld of organised wildlife crime.

No stranger to covert operation, Galster poses as an interested buyer and deploys a hidden camera to document the illegal dealings of poachers, middlemen, smugglers, syndicate masterminds, retailers and buyers.

“In earlier days, the cameras were huge but now they’re sophisticated and easier to operate,” says Galster, who used to investigate drug and arms trafficking for the United States in conflict zones in West Asia and Central America. During those times, he saw first-hand how rebel armies traded wildlife in exchange for weapons. He was later hired by a Britain-based nature group to spearhead an undercover investigation on the massive trade in elephant ivory.

In Crime Scene Wild, Galster’s footage from hidden cameras shows a wide range of the trade – from poaching deep in the Cameroon rainforest to illegal transactions in Central Asia, the backlanes of bustling Tibetan markets and curio boutiques in western cities – to illustrate the globalised nature of the trade, said to be worth as much as arms and drug trafficking.

In the process, Galster uncovered new trends in circumventing Cites rules, like passing off illegal goods as pre-Cites specimens or simply calling them antiques as in the case of elephant tusks and finished carved ivory products.

Having investigated the elephant and tiger trade for more than a decade, Galster is perturbed by the renewed trade that indicates that, despite more than 30 years of Cites implementation, signatories still struggle to uphold the rules. The over 30,000 species protected under Cites are far from safe, what with the lucrative price tags on their heads and the low priorities in enforcement and dismal conviction rates. In Western Africa, for instance, rangers are up against poachers who are far better armed.

An unenlightened judiciary also results in criminals escaping on technical grounds. He cites the case of an American trader of West African ivory who got away with just five years' probation and 1,500 hours of community service in the local zoo because the judge argued that he “see no victim”.

The Wildlife Alliance director of operation nonetheless, believes that education is key to combat ignorance of the far-reaching effect of wildlife trade and that profiteering from wildlife is a crime against nature.

“Wildlife is the blood of the forests. Take the animals away, the forest's value decreases or (is reduced to) what is called ‘empty forest syndrome’,” says Galster, who believes that protecting habitats as well as anti-poaching and anti-trafficking measures are needed to ensure the survival of wildlife.

It took Cicada Productions a year to wrap up the shoot. The production includes filming cases which Galster was investigating. He was apprehensive but the professionalism displayed by the production team meant that there was no interference with his work and no suspicions were aroused.

Galster admits that the series focuses on charismatic species as they are crowd-pullers while the plight of many other less appealing species, like the pangolin for instance, are not given similar attention. Plus, the series is fauna-bias as it is thought that non-animated flora species will be a hard sell.

“People want to see cute, adorable animals. (However), there’s talk of a second series,” he reveals.

  • Crime Scene Wild will air on Mondays on Animal Planet (Astro channel 556) at 9pm beginning Feb 18, with repeats on Sundays at 2pm.

    Using Natural Flea Control to Help Your Pet
    While feeding small amounts of fresh garlic and brewer's yeast to the pet have not been shown in controlled studies to be effective, many pet owners swear by their use and continue to add them to the diet to aid in parasite control.
    Sure, it can help to feed garlic and yeast to dogs and cats. This gives them some extra B vitamins and makes them not so tasty to the flea. The only caution is that you not depend on this as your sole means of controlling fleas.
    Fleas can cause a number of health problems for your pet, but one of the bigger one is related to allergies. The technical name is dermatitis, but essentially it involves hypersensitivity to flea bites. Some pets simply are allergic to the chemical
    To get rid of fleas and ticks already on the animal, natural herbal preparations and shampoos are available, often containing d-limonene, from citrus extracts, or herbs and essential oils such as citronella, eucalyptus and cedar. I personally think it is

    Fleas are similar to cockroaches in that they adapt to their environment. They become stronger and more immune to these popular chemicals with each generation.
