Marius, you did not deserve to
die, to be cut up in front of an
audience filled with small
children. What happened at
the Copenhagen Zoo Sunday
was wrong on so many levels.
Bengt Holst could have protected
the zoos gene pool without killing
you. His incompetence cost you
your precious life. He should have
made projections, breeding in
relation to how many he could
accommodate. There were so
many knowledgeable and
professional zoologists that
wanted you, even here in
America. The EAZA said they
could not let you go to anyone
because everyone else had lesser
standards of welfare than their
members so they too sentenced
you to death. By their actions they
just showed the world how debased
their standards are. Jack Hannah
offered to take you a world away from
there, it would have been a win/win.
Thousands the world over pleaded
for your life. EAZA is in dire need of
being monitored or different leadership
and I would protest Bengt Holst being
over our town's animal shelter!
The last place I thought I would see a man
strutting around in a fur coat would have been
Joe Namath at the Superbowl! Wished he'd just
went on down to the slaughterhouse and picked
the beautiful animal out, looked in it's eyes. He
even needs to stick around when they perform
anal electrocution and the remains goes in a
A Dog’s Last Will & Testament
Before humans die, they write their last
will and testament, giving their home and all
they have to those they leave behind. If, with
my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask…
To a poor and lonely stray I’d give my happy home;
my bowl and cozy bed, soft pillow and all my toys;
the lap, which I loved so much; the hand that stroked
my fur; and the sweet voice that spoke my name.
I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had
in m human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no
bounds. So, when I die, please do not say, “I will never
have a pet again, for the loss and the pain is more than
I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose
life has held no joy or hope, and give my place to him.
This is the only thing I can give.
There are some humans on this planet who should never own a pet, and some who should never havehad more than one child, and yet they won't havejust one, but multiple siblings that may be adoptedout possibly losing touch. If you know a fosteror adoptive parent, hug them, they are makingsuch a positive difference on our planet! Never, if possible, lie down at nightwithout being able to say: I have made one human being, at least, a little wiser, a little happier, or a little better this day. (Charles Kingsley)
They love their soul mate, family, they
breathe, they love their freedom, they
feel pain. The right to this planet
belonged to them before us. Fences
and borders were born of man. Animals
were made to roam freely, they belong
to all of us. To poach, to kill off a speciesinfringes upon the rights of the universalstakeholders of this planet. We will expose the greedy, the ignorant, the selfish. We will educate, and touch the heart of those who hold no opinion, incline the soul of the indifferent or diseased with apathy. This is our testament for the stakeholdersyet to be born, mine and yours.
Their love, their companionship exist as much as ours.
...you ask why I oppose animal lab testing?
Do you enjoy the peaceful naps with your
mate? Would you want your child ripped
from your arms? Think about it, you could
carry a wrap sheet of cruelty and abuse when
your short life is over, ummmh...wonder how
you'll pay? Think about it. Your profits will
not make the trip.
Kindness is a language which the
deaf can hear and the blind
can read. (Mark Twain)
What's HOT & SEXY about paying someone to skin an animal so you can wrap it around you & walk a red carpet? That little mink, fox, chinchilla
& others need their skin, fur as much as that little pedigree of yours. Beauty should be about showing
YOUR SKIN NOT THEIRS!
• Approximately forty animals are killed for each fur coat.
• Each of those animals has died a violent death: anal electrocution, gassing, neck breaking, drowning, a shot to the head, or clubbing.
• The most popular of traps used to catch fur-bearing animals,
the steel-jaw leghold, has been banned because of its cruelty
in 89 nations and 5 states in the United States.
• Fur is often mislabled as faux or fur trim
when it is
really dog and cat
• Great Britain has just banned all fur farms. Austria has
effectively banned fur farming. And Sweden has outlawed keeping foxes in cages for their fur.
I urge anybody who has doubts about the misery and agony of
animals raised for fur to watch the undercover footage of
from a fur farm in Midland, Michigan, which shows chinchillas being electrocuted, causing painful seizures to the animals’ hearts, and having their necks snapped while fully conscious. It is hard to watch but will dispel apathy about the fur industry.
And you’ll find video of other animals (more widely sold in the
United States) on Chinese fur farms being slammed against
It's their coat, not yours! A confident, intelligent man or woman does not need a helpless animal's skin to look hot and sexy!
IS THIS SUFFERING FOR FASHION, CULTURE OR RELIGION WORTH THE COST TO OUR ANIMALS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT?
If you wear a fur you need to imagine an electrical prod shoved up you butt to kill you.
Once you know the truth, once you see the
torment, the suffering of God's beautiful
creatures...help us put a stop to the Animal
