Au --Comité Dé artemental du Tourisme de la Charente,France
Mesdames, Messieurs,
C’est avec horreur que j’ai appris que la Municipalité de Angoulème planifie, pour la fin de cette semaine, le massacre des chats libres habitant la ville.
Je n’accepte aucune excuse pour cet acte cruel et criminel.
Je vous fais part de mon indignation et je vous fais savoir que ma conscience m’interdit de visiter dorénavant une région qui n’a aucun respect pour la vie d’ animaux innocents.
Je boycotterai aussi tous les produits venant de votre région, et j’en ferai part à tous mes amis et connaissances.
Si vous arrivez à convaincre la Municipalité de la Ville d’Angoulème d’abandonner ce plan perfide, veuillez me le faire savoir. Je vous en remercie d’avance.
Salutations distinguées,

{ else }   Alert: save alaska's wolves and bears  
Focus:Endangered Species
Action Request:Write E-Mail
Location:Alaska, United States
Alaskans have just 48 more hours to submit their comments on proposals to be considered by the Alaska Board of Game. These seek increased control of wolves and bears and would reinstate the aerial gunning of wolves.

The Board will meet from March 10th-20th in Fairbanks. It is extremely important that they receive your informed comments on their proposals by this Friday.

Please take a few moments to read the information below on some of the worst of the Board's proposals, then submit your comments...

Emergency Proposals Reinstating the Aerial Gunning Control Programs (Supplementary Proposals #9, #10, #11, #12 and #13):

The Board intends to officially re-adopt the “emergency measures” regarding the aerial wolf control programs they passed at an emergency meeting held in January.

Suggested comments:

  • These emergency measures were passed to circumvent the recent court ruling that found the Board’s aerial gunning programs were illegal and to reinitiate the aerial control programs as soon as possible.
  • Public comments were not accepted at this meeting.  The Board continues to ignore the fact that airborne wolf-killing by private pilots has twice been voted down by Alaskans.
  • The Board’s aerial gunning plans call for the largest wolf-control program since statehood, (covering 50,000 square miles and targeting an 80% reduction in wolves) but are not based on sound science. Anecdotal evidence from hunters regarding the number of wolves present rather than scientific surveys mean that wolf populations could be completely eliminated in some areas.

Proposals #11, #15, #21, #22 and #23 classify brown and black bears as furbearers, allowing them to be trapped and their fur sold in interior Game Management Units (GMUs).

Suggested comments:

  • Bears have not been classified as furbearers and subject to trapping since Alaska became a state. No other western state permits this practice.
  • Catching and holding large powerful and potentially dangerous animals in snares and leg hold traps presents a situation where wounding loss and injury can occur.
  • Wounded bears that escape from traps are potential threats to public safety and property.
  • The sale of bear hides in some GMUs but not others invites enforcement problems because bears will be poached or taken in areas where sale is prohibited and presented for sealing in GMUs that allow this: such “bootlegging” of bears has occurred in the past when GMUs have inconsistent regulations and there is a commercial incentive for violation.
  • Commercialization of bear hides establishes a precedent which may lead to pressure for the sale of other lucrative parts like gall bladders. Such trade in parts fosters illegal activity and creates a opening for elements that engage in the worldwide trade in endangered species.

Proposal #23 also allows for the same day airborne hunting of bears and the harvest of female and young bears in Unit 20E:

Suggested comments:

  • Current bear harvest regulations in 20E are already very liberal.  Additional hunting pressure risks over harvest and jeopardizes sustained yield. The slow reproductive rate of bears means that management mistakes may not be obvious until it is too late to correct them without damage to the population.
  • Same day airborne hunting of bears has historically not been permitted in the state because of past abuses and enforcement problems associated with highly mobile aircraft in remote areas. The practice also invites violation of 5AAC 92.080 (5), which prohibits harassment, herding, chasing and molesting wildlife with motorized vehicles.
  • Before any further liberalization of bear hunting regulations in this Unit are considered, translocation of bears should be evaluated, using the McGrath Adaptive Management Plan guidelines.

Proposal #27 amends the wolf control plan for Unit 19D to include the control of black and brown bears.

Suggested comment:

  • There is no biological information provided to justify lethal control of bears in this area. Populations are considered to be low or moderate, with no estimates of bear population density cited.
  • Translocation of black bears from this area has proved to be an effective measure to reduce predation on moose and can be continued for grizzly bears as a preferable control measure if needed.

Proposals #116, #127, #128 allow for the use of snow machines to pursue wolves and bears in GMU 20E and wolves in GMUs 21, 24 and 25C.

Suggested comments:

  • Snow machine hunting invites driving, herding and harassing other wildlife in violation of state and federal laws.
  • Chasing animals with mechanized vehicles is counter to fair chase hunting practices and contributes to the perception that Alaska sanctions inappropriate methods and means to take game.
  • The past history of abuse involving shooting from snow machines in the pursuit of wolves and other furbearers makes enforceability a major concern.
  • Bears are especially vulnerable after emerging from dens; pursuit at this time with snow machines is unprecedented and unethical.

With only a few hours left to speak up for Alaska’s wolves and bears, I strongly urge you to make your voice heard.

Sincerely,

Caroline Kennedy
Director of Field Conservation
Defenders of Wildlife

P.S. Time is of the essence. We need your help to spread the word about these awful new proposals. Please forward this message to your friends in Alaska right now.

{ else }   Alert: Save Canadian Seals!  
Focus:Endangered Species
Action Request:Write E-Mail
Location:Canada
From the Human society of United states I post this alert: Please write e-mails!
Thank you for taking action to help stop Canada's massive seal hunt.  By pledging to boycott Canadian seafood, you and hundreds of thousands of other concerned individuals are using our economic power to stop this cruel slaughter.
The Humane Society of the United States is committed to working with the Canadian government to permanently end the seal hunt.  With the recent election of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, we have renewed hope that 2006 will be the last year that seals are clubbed and shot by Canadian fishermen for their fur.  Please join us in urging Prime Minister Harper to end the seal hunt forever.

As Prime Minister Harper begins his term, we must do everything in our power to influence the Canadian government and save countless baby seals. 

Canada is sensitive to world opinion, and its fishing industry is vulnerable to the conscientious decision of hundreds of thousands of people to refuse to buy Canadian seafood until the hunt has ended.  Let the new government know that you stand with all of the committed individuals who are dedicated to stopping this annual slaughter.

More than 220,000 seal supporters have already pledged to boycott Canadian seafood, sending a clear message to a fishing industry that makes only 2% of its income from killing seals. In the months since the boycott was launched, more than 400 seafood wholesalers, restaurants, and grocery chains have pledged support for the campaign. Already, the value of Canadian seafood exports to the United States has declined by more than $150 million. The hunt is not only cruel and inhumane -- it is economically unnecessary. 
The next step in our coordinated campaign is to convince Prime Minister Harper to use his power to end the hunt.  He's already voiced opposition to the Canadian seal hunt --
tell him to make a real commitment to protect seals and end the hunt.
Thank you for joining us in our fight to abolish the vicious seal hunt forever, and for everything you do for animals.

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle
President & CEO
The Humane Society of the United States

P.S. Get frequent updates from Rebecca Aldworth, our director of Canadian wildlife issues, who will be on the ice throughout the hunt to witness and report.

Hi everybody - here the note I wrote - if it might be helpful - below it you find the link on which those notes shall be posted -please use it!

(I was spammed-it didn't take my note and I don't know how to put it!But I'll go on trying!)
Here it is - maybe you are more succesful!
We cant go on killing the innocent victims of our crimes! What sense does it make to kill off one animal so that some of us may kill another!
Remember that wolves kill animals to eat them - so the balance stays equal. We cannot say the same for hunters - unless each hunter eats the animals he kills and kills not more than he can eat-but it's not the way it really works, right? In Europe we are trying to repopulate wolves and bears we had nearly extincted years ago-but we learned from our mistake - why do you want to repeat it?
The world is watching -and does NOT approve.
The Native tribes know better about the balance of nature than some blind greedy politicians sitting in climatized offices with pollution around them - and maybe having seen some lonely pets in their life meaning the only tangible contact to nature for them. The Native Tribes are right! Leave the wolves alone! By the way, why don't you give hunters a lower number of victims - and check that they don't kill more? This would at least be an attempt to solve the thing - NOT by killing the wolves! One day when mankind will totally have ruined the balance of nature through greedy, thoughtless actions, you will think back when the world was pristine and wonder what you did wrong. I can tell you right now: those interferences with nature are wrong, senseless and really short-sighted! It’s a murderous injustice to the wolves, who were the first animals to befriend man-and there might have been a reason for mankind to join this partnership - but as humans use to, it was betrayed and it's time now we step back to where we belong. We are not the masters of this world but one of the creatures populating it! Why does man feel the need to destroy without consideration of the future? Civilization?

February 2006


13 FEBRUARY 2006: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST AGAINST CHINESE FUR

The fur industry is one of the world's cruelest, and China is the source of most of the world's fur products. In the absence of any legislation or government control, animals in the Chinese fur industry are subject to the most extreme forms of abuse. In protest of China's reluctance to act against the horrific treatment of animals in its fur industry, an international day of protest will take place on Monday, 13 February 2006 in front of Chinese embassies and consulates worldwide. Organizations and individuals from all over the world are invited to join this initiative. Please pass on the call, join an existing vigil, or organize one in your area or country.

THE GLOBAL TRADE IN DOG AND CAT FUR
An estimated 2,000,000 dogs and cats are killed every year for the fur trade, mostly in the Far East, in countries such as China and the Philippines. A recent undercover investigation by the “Humane Society of the United States” in China, Thailand and the Philippines showed animals being slaughtered in the most cruel ways imaginable, with cats and dogs being beaten, strangled, drowned and stripped of their fur, often when they are still alive.
Dog and cat fur is used in a wide variety of products including fur coats and jackets, hats, gloves, decorative accessories, blankets.

PETITION TO THE CHINESE EMBASSY

UNLICENSED OWNERS IN TERROR OF HAVING DOGS CONFISCATED AND BRUTALLY KILLED

LETTER TO EUROPEAN COMMISSIONER

SIGN THIS PETITION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

 
STOP KILLING DOGS IN ROMANIA!
The problems started when the Romanian media announced that a Japanese citizen died in Bucarest after being bitten by a stray.
TV stations organized all sorts of talk shows presenting the serious overpopulation problem all over the country, the lack of real solutions applied so far to control and/or diminish this problem. They compared how quickly and efficiently the problem was solved years ago in Western Europe.
Officials insist that dogs from the streets should be kept less in local pounds for a possible adoption to be taken back if lost by owners.
Now the legal period is 14 days, they now want to make it 3 days. They want to give big penalties (Euro 500) for people who rescue dogs from the pound and then release them back onto the streets. The newspaper article translated as follows. The authorities are looking for responsible solutions.
Being the loser in the fight homeless animals problem for years Bucarest authorities are about to take strict measures.

 
SAVE THE DOGS OF SERBIA!
I was to Subotica (Serbia) with the vet, doctor Carlos Rossetti. We visit the shelter and I was very impressed about it. All the dogs are in very good conditions, healthy and with no fleas. The vet only made an injection to a puppy because of the distemper. Boxes are clean; the kitchen is very clean; they have a very good organization for managing the shelter.

 
PLEASE HELP STOP EXPERIMENTS ON MONKEY'S BRAIN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT!
Right now, there are four rhesus monkeys being held at the University of Connecticut for use by the Neuroscience Department.
Each individual has had a large hole drilled into the top of his/her head and has been fitted with a
permanent data collection chamber atop the wound.
Furthermore, small stainless steel springs have been implanted in their eyes. The researcher, Dr. David Waitzman, then intentionally inflicts damage to the brain and measures neurological activity related to eye movements. At the end of the study, the monkeys are killed and decapitated.
These experiments are cruel to animals and they discourage advancements in the search for humane
alternatives by continuing introduce animal models as our defaults for the study of human anatomy and physiology.


JUST SAY NO TO PSYCH TESTING ON ANIMALS!
The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo in Israel is planning to build an animal research laboratory that will house thousands of animals who will be used for psychological experiments. While little information is currently available about the planned experiments, the lead researcher, Hanan Frenk, has in the past focused on pain and addiction research, including examining rats’ responses to having their tails burned and being restrained on heating plates as they are given morphine.

Planned experiments will apparently include comparing animals' responses to surgery when they have and have not been given morphine.

We present to you: Aragorn, Lupo Alberto, Balto, Francesco and Romolo. 5 of the seven Croatian wolves are well!
They lived in a sort of a“chicken run” with an enclosure of net, without food or water.
It was an alert sent on the Internet by Apertis Verbis and OIPA, and was subsequently picked up by Biopark Foundation and Office of Animal Rights in the Municipality of Rome (Italy), twho then started the operations of the rescue which saved 5 wolves from the lager of a private Croatian zoo, which is now going throuh closure.

The fur industry is one of the world's cruelest, and China is the source of most of the world's fur products. In the absence of any legislation or government control, animals in the Chinese fur industry are subject to the most extreme forms of abuse. In protest of China's reluctance to act against the horrific treatment of animals in its fur industry, an international day of protest will take place on Monday, 13 February 2006 in front of Chinese embassies and consulates worldwide. Organizations and individuals from all over the world are invited to join this initiative. Please pass on the call, join an existing vigil, or organize one in your area or country.                                                                                   An estimated 2,000,000 dogs and cats are killed every year for the fur trade, mostly in the Far East, in countries such as China and the Philippines. A recent undercover investigation by the “Humane Society of the United States” in China, Thailand and the Philippines showed animals being slaughtered in the most cruel ways imaginable, with cats and dogs being beaten, strangled, drowned and stripped of their fur, often when they are still alive. Dog and cat fur is used in a wide variety of products including fur coats and jackets, hats, gloves, decorative accessories, blankets.Please sign our petitions:PETITION TO THE CHINESE EMBASSYUNLICENSED OWNERS IN TERROR OF HAVING DOGS CONFISCATED AND BRUTALLY KILLEDLETTER TO EUROPEAN COMMISSIONERSIGN THIS PETITION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT The problems started when the Romanian media announced that a Japanese citizen died in Bucarest after being bitten by a stray.TV stations organized all sorts of talk shows presenting the serious overpopulation problem all over the country, the lack of real solutions applied so far to control and/or diminish this problem. They compared how quickly and efficiently the problem was solved years ago in Western Europe.Officials insist that dogs from the streets should be kept less in local pounds for a possible adoption to be taken back if lost by owners.Now the legal period is 14 days, they now want to make it 3 days. They want to give big penalties (Euro 500) for people who rescue dogs from the pound and then release them back onto the streets. The newspaper article translated as follows. The authorities are looking for responsible solutions.Being the loser in the fight homeless animals problem for years Bucarest authorities are about to take strict measures.I was to Subotica (Serbia) with the vet, doctor Carlos Rossetti. We visit the shelter and I was very impressed about it. All the dogs are in very good conditions, healthy and with no fleas. The vet only made an injection to a puppy because of the distemper. Boxes are clean; the kitchen is very clean; they have a very good organization for managing the shelter. Right now, there are four rhesus monkeys being held at the University of Connecticut for use by the Neuroscience Department.
