Have those who would support this detrimental bill something to hide? Were it not, as an example, for the investigation put forth by the HSUS into a slaughterhouse in Chico, California, a major supplier to local schools, the cruelty inflicted upon sickly cows forced to stand by any means possible and consequently serious potential for disease within the school system's food supply might have continued to this day. Yes, the truth can hurt but to hide it can do far worse damage.

Thanks, Val. Some worthy causes.

What hypocrisy to penalize those who try to expose law breakers.:

 

"Animal cruelty is a crime in most developed and civilized societies.

So how can people who expose these crimes be accused of breaking the law.

You can't have it both ways.

Cruelty is cruelty and has to be exposed.

Would the same apply apply to someone exposing cruelty to children

Thanks Val. I always use Google Translate. Although not perfect it is good enough to give the gist of the topic.

 

Hog wresting in Wisconsin. Has to be a joke. Gives a whole new meaning to "red neck " and "hillbilly"......the idea of an intelligent animal (the pig) being pitted against one of those accidents of nature, is truly bizarre. If the authorities don't control the feral humans under their jurisdiction, then what does it say about that State. Talk about getting rid of feral animals ! Well humans are animals so lets have some action in Wisconsin for starters.

Thanks Val. Commented and signed. No trouble with the circus.

Just a couple of my raves.:

Patrick - "Why do so many people want to adopt Patrick when there are thousands of sad rejected dogs in rescue centres everywhere.

Let applicant be directed to these dogs.

I fear that a great many applicants are as much interested in his fame as they are in Patrick himself. If they are committed to doing good, then they should adopt those who are not, and never will be, in the media spotlight."

 

Iowa - "For some reason Iowa seems to wishes to differentiate itself from the world movement towards improved animal welfare legislation. Even China is moving in this direction. What does this say about Iowa. If not for the animals, then consider the State' reputation."

 

Why not three. Romania - "This is an appalling situation. Here we have  Romanian citizens broadcasting to the world their acts of extreme cruelty.

You must realize that the international community, including you new family "The European Community", will judge Romania as being a country of cruelty.

Please act firmly against these criminals and restore the good name of Romania."               (" the good name of Romania" is tongue in cheek. )

My cynical side fears you may just be right regarding the Patrick issue, Simon...There may very well be people out there clamoring to adopt the unfortunate animal not out of the goodness of their hearts but out of a selfish desire for a moment of publicity. While Patrick certainly deserves a chance at a better life than he has been given, so do oh, so many other abused, abandoned, neglected, homeless animals waiting in shelters nationwide and, indeed, worldwide.Patrick has already bonded with a certain staff member. An animal certainly knows when someone truly cares. Let him, then, go home with her and let others have a chance at finding their own bond. Every animal deserves this.

All done thanks Val.

I have been following Patrick since day one - signed petitions and commented where I could and now I am completely fretting here at the other end of the world.  I though it was a done deal that he would be adopted by the people at the hospital.  Do I understand correctly that he will now go to a shelter for open adoption?  This is dreadful.  Who has made this stupid decision? What else can we do to make sure this does not happen?  I agree with Deb and Simon.  He will be exploited for his celebrity and this cannot be allowed.   It is quite obvious that he has found his new home.

If it is realistic and at all possible that any of the animals within the affected area can be spared, then certainly measures should be taken to relocate those who might still have a chance. To do any less would be a tragic waste of lives.

Thanks Val. Have been out of action for a couple of days on cat business. So many cats coming into the Shelter and heaps of publicity to do.

 

As usual a sad crop of petition and I had plenty to say. A couple:

Fox Hunting (I am a dual UK/Aust citizen).

"The United Kingdom has long been known as a country of animal lovers.

There are clear anomalies, one being fox hunting, a pastime of the elite.

It was a sign of progressive action to ban this 18th. Century "sport". "The "Hunt", should remain as one of the thousands of paintings decorating  the walls of stately homes.

There is no place for this barbarity in a modern civilized country."

 

Removing vocal cords. :

"This is an absurd cruel practice. If people don't like barking and meowing then don't have a dog or cat.

Babies make an enormous amount of noise, so why not...................!

 

 

"The Patrick Phenomena"
3 years ago

The "Patrick Phenomena" is a really interesting example of human behaviour, and is one of the many reasons that I respect very few people. 

You see it everyday.  Mary Bale and the "cat in the garbage bin" was a beautiful example". All the emotion and anger that poured out. Close to group hysteria. True, disgusting, cruel action, but on the scheme of things it does'nt rate.  No doubt many to the excited and emotional people following these stories, saw report whilst eating "Kentucky Fried", or a "Big Mac". It is as if this focus  for emotional discharge clears the guilt because it shows "they really do care".

So where are this compassionate people when it comes to the issues that matter? Well they've done their bit, and may even have chipped in a few dollars. So let's get back to the "finger lickin".

Elephant meat...? Why can't they just eat more beans and nuts if they want protein...? Overpopulation...Not at the rate they're slaughtering them with their ignorant policies and views. When will the African government ever realise that these animals are so much more valuable alive? The extinction of this magnificent animal will surely, ultimately become their shame and undoing...

Debbie. Definition of Insane :"Mugabe"

Dog Chaining : "There is no way of monitoring how long a dog is chained, so setting a time limit is totally unworkable. The issue is "To Chain, or Not to Chain".

Clearly it should be no chaining. If people are not prepared to accept the fully responsibility of dog ownership, then they should not have one."

I agree Simon - was just makng a point that sometimes you go into a store to pick up a gallon of milk while walking the dog(not me but some people) - I suppose that would be OK - however I never chain my dog - I put her on a leach 3x daily and take her out.
