Two wild-caught orcas are scheduled to be put on display at the Winter Olympics in Russia. This is a step in the wrong direction, as the world should be moving away from using marine life for entertainment. Urge that these orcas be released back into the wild.
You are welcome Desanka! I am glad if I can support a great fighter for animals like you!
My precious friend Monika, I can't thank you enough. All petitions signed and shared.
ACTION ALERT: Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach: Boycott the Olympics in Sochi! PLEASE SIGN !
Simone - 33 minutes ago - secure.avaaz.org
Signed Monika. Seems the sole purpose of some monsters lives' is torturing animals.
Its all about money Jan, sad and disgusting. Its the same when they gave the world socker championship to Katar where human rights doesn't exist and workers are kept in slavery...
From Anneke's list:
Yes Monika I signed it then. This poor bear - these sub humans don't listen. Look at the animals including bear trhat lives in that bloody bus. I bet they are still in it. There is no way they should be hosting Olympics - but all the countries are concerned with these days is how many medals they can get. In UK you get a knighthood for getting medals these days. Morals have gone totally. There was a time when sports people refused to compete in countries where human rights were not respected. They don't care these days - only about winning and who can have the most spectacular opening ceremony. I used to be a real athletics and olympics fan and I remember when our athletes had to work at a regular job and train and I used to take one of our 100m runners who was one of my school pupils to training in Crystal Pallace and the excitement when she was in the Olympics. Wendy was proud to take part and the last thing on her mind was getting on the honours list.
We live in a sick greedy celebrity obsessed world and everyone thinks they have a right to be famous.
Dear Desanka, thanks for bringing Masha back to our attention!!! I posted it already 4 weeks ago but there was not much feedback in the group

Tell Winter Olympic City Not to Display Wild Orcas ! PLEASE SIGN ! !
Cher - 1 hour ago - thepetitionsite.com
The city Orenburg violates existing legislation about the treatment of stray animals, despite the measures adopted by court acts. Instead humane ways of controlling the number of stray animals (mass vaccination, sterilization and chipping, catch-neuter-return), the city Orenburg continues mass destruction of animals in shelters. The administration of the city each year spend on illegal and ineffective activities several million rubles from the budget.
Russia and Ukraine have blocked the creation of the world's largest ocean sanctuaries around Antarctica… again. This has demonstrated their sheer lack of political will to protect the last ocean wilderness on earth.
This comes a mere three months after Russia and Ukraine pulled the rug out from underneath negotiations in Germany. These two states continue to steadily erode the genuine efforts of other countries to protect these waters for future generations.
Unlike Russia and Ukraine, we have the will and determination to keep up the fight to protect these pristine waters and the thousands of species that call it home. We know that you do too. Share the above picture with your friends and family and ask them to Join The Watch today.
There is no doubt the 25 Members of CCAMLR (the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) feel the public pressure and know the world is watching their every move. Because of our campaign, countries like South Korea, Norway and Chile are becoming more and more supportive of Southern Ocean marine protection. Now we need to escalate public support and you are the agents to make this happen.
The two ocean sanctuary proposals that CCAMLR failed to pass were a US and New Zealand proposal for the Ross Sea, known as the most intact marine ecosystem left on earth, and a proposal from Australia, France and the EU for an East Antarctic ocean sanctuary.
While this is a major disappointment, our hopes remain strong for 2014. Stay tuned.
The animal cruelty was demonstrated on Central Television for Channel 1 for entertainment purposes on November 18, 2013, at 15:15, in the program "Best Husband". Stop the mistreatment of animals in Russian TV.
Signed and submitted the 4 petitions since I posted last time.
Thank you for the postings, Monika, Desanka, Jan, and Anneke.
Up to date
Pres. Azerbadjan, help us Protect Animals!
We are shocked that our country is more and more unpunished murders of homeless dogs and cats! In recent years, people have witnessed many cases of severe treatment of animals and there bloody murders. All this is happening on our streets, in broad daylight, in front of children and adolescents, and the guests of our capital.
This is unacceptable. We ask Mr President Ilham Aliyev and the Cabinet of Ministers to take drastic measures to prevent such incidents, as well tougher penalties including imprisonment and hard labor for repeated animal cruelty.
I wish so bad there are equal laws for people and Animals! Thank you Jan and Monika, signed.

To: State Duma and Environmental prosecutor
In November 2012 Khabarovsk officials allowed shooting Himalayan bears and other wild animals to supplement the budget. Regional government in 2013 plans to sell a license to shoot 380 brown bears, 790 elks, 410 reindeer and many other animals: wild boar, bighorn sheep, badgers and sable. Stop brutal killings of wild animals for the sake of money!

Target: Vladimir Putin (Prime Minister of the Russian Federation)
Many dogs can be seen on the street in a dreadful state as the victims of the people. In the Kursk region Zheleznogorsk shootings occur every month of stray dogs. Shootings taking place in daylight in the presence of adults and children. We ask you the same money allocated for the shooting of the dogs to put on the construction and maintenance of a shelters for the innocent street animals. Let's protect them and give them a chance to enjoy life given to them by God!
Thanks Desanka, signed.

Signed all. Thanks Desanka. I am so far behind! The Sanctuary is taking a lot more of my energy than usual.
Juvenile delinquent for fun cut off animal's heads and upload photos to the Internet. Authorities do nothing, he is unpunished, continues to torture and kill defenseless animals. We cannot remain silent! Support please, we wish that this issue "raised" on television, so turn to you Arkady Mamontov!
Administration of the city of Barnaul allocates 2 million rubles for the destruction of stray dogs. Solve the problem of stray animals in civilized way, without killing. 2 million is better to spent on sterilization of animals and to provide them a shelter.
Up to date.
Thanks Desanka, all signed.
We demand to stop destruction of homeless animals with cruel methods. Many dogs are poisoned and died in agony. In addition, we consider illogical and unreasonable destruction of sterilized animals. Services that want to earn extra money, are ready to kill all living things the easiest and cheapest ways.
To build a shelter for homeless dogs and cats in the Kirov-Chepeck - as an example of a responsible attitude to animals.
Signed. My heart hurts when I see the cruelty humans inflict on animals.
Thanks Desanka, further emails sent.
Already signed. Thanks Desanka x
All done - than you Desanka.
Moscow: Create the Service to rescue stray cats
In many basement rooms or under porches live, or rather say cats are tormented. They are doomed to starvation and painful death. Complaints to various state institutions do not have the response and the number of abandoned animals is growing.
Please we need the plan to save the abandoned animals in Moscow. As first step, organize the Service to rescue stray cats. In civilized countries, there are services to rescue stray cats and to provide them veterinary care in the shelters. Without a humane solution to this problem, Moscow, and we Muscovites, are not civilized city.
We need to issue the law to punish irresponsible people who abuse animals and abandon them, as well legal mechanism with penalties, based on the countries that have long experience. It is important to increase the help for the poor animal shelters in Moscow. Please urgently resolve this issue - it is possible with the huge budget of Moscow.
Signed and letter sent. Have a nice day Desanka x
The Government of Kazan (Russian Federation) is preparing for the INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSIADE 2013-2018 and because of this event has planned to kill 8800 stray dogs and cats. These killings have already begun. Mass culling of sentient defenseless, abandoned creatures takes place in the most cruel way possible, with cheap ordinary liquids, like chloride and gasoline, and other poisons.
Such news we receive every year from all the cities of Russian Federation.
Russian Federation ignore all petitions of the Russian public against this brutal massacre of homeless animals. The officials of the Russian Federation don't understand that civilized people have ethical feelings:
These crimes are being committed on a very regular basis in all cities of the Russian Federation:
Therefore, we are compelled to address ourselves to you with a request to help to stop this barbaric cruelty. No living creature deserves to perish by fire, or to suffer any other agonizing death! CATCH-NEUTER-RETURN is the only proven humane and effective method to reduce stray animal population.
As humankind, we have duty to RESPECT ALL LIFE, or we live in inhumane world. We have faith in you to help these innocent creatures!
All done and I'm so very happy that Masha has finally been rescued from her terrible torment! Many thanks to 'FOUR PAWS' for making this happen and Thank you Dear Desanka for posting xx
Done. Thank you Desanka
THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA AGAINST STRAY ANIMALS
In Chisinau, the Capital of the Republic of Moldova, stray dogs and cats are maliciously and heartlessly poisoned and left to die for hours in agony on the streets, on the sight of passers-by, often witnesses of these terrifying scenes.
A suspect is even worst: there is also a covert method to make homeless dogs disappear. It seems that vehicles of the local sanitation services, whose responsibility and duty is to maintain “clean” the capital, capture strays, perceiving them as any extra road rubbish.
Recently, Republic of Moldova is officially involved with European Union for the review of its laws. Well, implementation of a national law for animal protection and welfare is in the interest of the country.
OIPA addressed a letter to the Moldovan Ambassador in Italy Aurel BÄieÅu, requesting the establishment of a cooperation for the management of the stray population, asking the help of the OIPA member league Alga.
Send the letter of protest: http://www.oipa.org/international/abandonment/alerts/moldova.html
Thanks Desanka and Monika, signed.
We ask you to take under special control activities of the criminal group called "dog hunters", which is acting on the territory of the city of Chita .
August 19, 2013, in the courtyard, Chinjakov Michael Vladlenovich, one of "dog hunters", in front of children shot and brutally massacre one small sleeping dog with a collar.
Chinjakov Michael Vladlenovich is driving around and systematically shooting dogs. It is also known that Chinjakov is under the suspision that he took away from the shelter puppies and dogs, and then brutally murdered them in the forest.
For a long time Chinjakov spreads in the city poison food for the dogs. All activities of "dog hunters" Chinjakov describes in details on the Internet, in "the photo reports of bloody safari in the city".
Petition by the shelter volunteer Tatyana. The shelter in Nagornoe - threatened by bulldozers to be demolished. No place to relocate the animals! We ask to urgently allocate land for the relocation of Pushkin shelter in village Nagornoe.
Signed. Thanks Desanka x
In the village Nagornoe for about 15 years there is a shelter for retired service dogs, as well for the dogs and cats that were previously roaming on the streets. Upon learning that the shelter is evicted, at the beginning of winter it is extremely cruel to do such action.
We ask you to help the animals who already suffered. We ask you to take part in the life of the shelter. Leave it in the same place, or give them a piece of land and help build cages before winter.
This shelter deserves the support of the district authorities. We hope that you will help to resolve this issue and prevent the death of more than 200 dogs and 50 cats.
Thank you Monika, signed.
Up to date!
Thanks Desanka, Jan and Michelle, most already signed, caught up on others.
Signed and submitted the cat-burned petition and adding the comment that these youths need to learn EMPATHY and unlearn sadism.
Thank you for your posting, Monika.
I hope this cat's horrid death will not become only yesterday's headline, as have so many other. In today savage and insensitive world animal abuse cases like these often slip away.
Thank you Monika, signed.
Every time I read something like this I want to kill the monsters that did it. There is no excuse, no circumstances under which anyone should behave like this and be given leniency. They are sub human fiends who deserve to be executed. No creature is safe with them and they should be treated like the vermin they are.
If the next mass extinction were to take out this genetically modified element of the human race which exists in every country in the world the planet would be a better safer place. These freaks are definitely a sub species and cannot be considered human. Alternatively they could replace all the animals currently being tortured in labs and then some benefit may be derived from their twisted obsene lives.
Thanks Monika, I had tried copying and pasting it but I must have missed part of it off or something but it's signed now! What horrible abuse for that poor cat....disgusting!! Thanks again Monika x

UGH. Signed and seems never ending
Jesus Christ, God forgive me but I have no words for these @##%$@@ sadists - who took the picture, what despicable rubbish humans stood by and watched without helping this poor poor dog. I cannot handle this barbaric cruelty anymore - I feel like I want to beat every person I see to death just in case they abuse animals! These bastard devils don't deserve to be punished, they deserve to be strung up and nailed to a tree. More angry I could never be, believe me!
Shocking video: Ordinary people, taxi drivers and their wives, during the picnic in Sredneuralsky, hang one small dog it on the tree. After long torment... dog's screeching turned into wheezing... they killed him and roasted on the grill.
- Die hard! - Said one of them.
Signed!! Thanks Desanka
In the Khabarovsk region is situation of disaster due to the floods. Unfortunately, not all people are saving their pets - cats and dogs. Some leave them to the faith. Ask the head of Russian State emergency team in the Khabarovsk region not to refuse residents to evacuate with their pets, as well to carry out the information about the salvation of pets - specify, do not forget to take cats and dogs, and insist on their rescue if the animals are forgotten.

Today Russia blocked the creation of the world's largest ocean sanctuaries around Antarctica. Everyone, including the penguins, are devastated.
Russia, with support from the Ukraine, challenged CCAMLR’s legal authority to establish marine protected areas, leading negotiations to fall in a heap. Even countries who had concerns about the proposals on the table came to this meeting in good faith ready to negotiate.
This is surely a frustrating outcome for you after all the support you have given the campaign. But rest assured your support has been critical and your voices have been heard loud and clear. Decision makers saw the 6,000 or more messages on our Twitter wall during the meeting. We delivered the 1.3 million signatures to the hotel room of each head of delegation at the meeting. Even better, decision makers received over 5,000 emails from you calling on them to support efforts to establish the world’s largest ocean sanctuaries in the Southern Ocean.
These actions should not be underestimated and demonstrates the vast international support for protection of the high seas in the Southern Ocean. This campaign has an ever growing tide of supporters, and we are confident we are going to win!
While we’re all incredibly disappointed, we won’t give up the fight to protect the last pristine ocean wilderness left on earth.
Thanks for all your support and we'll be back at CCAMLR's next meeting in three months time in October.

Thank you so much Jan, signed.
Stuart - not sure if you saw this earlier one. Reposted just in case.
Thank you Desanka for also pointing out that there are two bears of the same name and our ex circus one is not the one in Ukraine that is being rescued. Therefore she still need signatures on hers.
Signed the ones I could. I am not on Face Book either.
I tried to sign and submit the petition for Katya but to do so required me to do it through Facebook and I am no longer on Facebook. It would be nicer if I could have done it without having to do it through Facebook.
Please keep us updated. Thank you.

The Olympic legacy is still in Russia with Katya the bear. They should not be allowed to hold the Olympics there - but then not so long ago they were in China. No moral backbone in these Committees any more. Winning medals is the thing and having the biggest and most ostentacious opening ceremony no matter what the cost.
All Signed and up to date!

Russia: Justice for the killing of all Animals in a private shelter in Surgut! Translated
SIGNED!! Thanks, Desanka and Jan. Thanks to all who have signed to save animals.
Thank you Desanka. We live in an age of technology that allows us to communicate in seconds with one another world-wide, we have explored space but most humans have not left the caves and in fact have less morals than those ancestral cave dwellers.From this brutality in the streets to gas chambers to 'quiet behind closed doors lethal injections' in UK, humans have created a massacre of dogs on an unprecedented scale. AND STILL we have idiots allowing puppy mills and puppy farms for the even more idiotic and selfish to buy a dog, when 90% of the world's dogs will never have a home.

This is insane and absolutely 'HEARTLESS" thinking. And then to offer $800 roobles which is NOTHING to kill a voiceless animal for no good reason. Use that $800 roobles for each stray and build a sanctuary for PET volunteers to take over the situation & free you from this atrocious thought & CRIME. SHAMEFUL Mr. Mayor.
