This is Jodie, she is a 14 yr old BLM Mustang Mare. Jodie was almost a statistic in that the eventuality of her going to slaughter was a real possibility. Then she would have become one of the 100,000 horses that do go to slaughter annually. She has been starved, abused & beaten (whip marks on face). She is but one Wild Horse rescue and this is her, story… http://itsmylifeandiwilldecide.blogspot.com/

Vegetarian's have a better chance of promoting and stopping meat consumtions, or those against the fur industry by not wearing fur can make a difference also. but to stand and obstain from oil products? that is another story all together! one can't state honestly to be against something and then in turn utilize those things in their daily lives. what kind of statement or difference would be seen, if one uses and objects at the same time. that would be conflict of interests! of course...one could do it, and remove all petroleum based products from their homes and make that stand, if they so determined. here is a list of only 144 of the 6000 products in your home that is created or oil based items. Solvents Diesel fuel Motor Oil Bearing Grease Ink Floor Wax Ballpoint Pens Football Cleats Upholstery Sweaters Boats Insecticides Bicycle Tires Sports Car Bodies Nail Polish Fishing lures Dresses Tires Golf Bags Perfumes Cassettes Dishwasher parts Tool Boxes Shoe Polish Motorcycle Helmet Caulking Petroleum Jelly Transparent Tape CD Player Computers Faucet Washers Antiseptics Clothesline ropes, string Curtains Food Preservatives Basketballs Soap Vitamin Capsules Antihistamines Purses Shoes Dashboards Cortisone Deodorant Footballs Putty Dyes Panty Hose Refrigerant Percolators Life Jackets Rubbing Alcohol Linings Skis TV Cabinets Shag Rugs Electrician's Tape Tool Racks Car Battery Cases Epoxy Paint Mops Slacks Insect Repellent Oil Filters Umbrellas Yarn Fertilizers Hair Coloring Roofing Toilet Seats Fishing Rods Lipstick Denture Adhesive Linoleum Ice Cube Trays Synthetic Rubber Speakers Plastic Wood Electric Blankets Glycerin Tennis Rackets Rubber Cement Fishing Boots Dice Nylon Rope Candles Trash Bags House Paint Water Pipes Hand Lotion Roller Skates Surf Boards Shampoo Wheels Paint Rollers Shower Curtains Guitar Strings Luggage Aspirin Safety Glasses Antifreeze Football Helmets Awnings Eyeglasses Clothes Toothbrushes Ice Chests Combs CD's & DVD's Paint Brushes Detergents Vaporizers Balloons Sun Glasses Tents Heart Valves Crayons Parachutes Telephones Enamel Pillows Dishes Cameras Anesthetics Artificial Turf Artificial limbs Bandages Dentures Model Cars Folding Doors Hair Curlers Cold cream Movie film Soft Contact lenses Drinking Cups Fan Belts Car Enamel Shaving Cream Ammonia Refrigerators Golf Balls Toothpaste Gasoline Americans consume petroleum products at a rate of three-and-a-half gallons of oil and more than 250 cubic feet of natural gas per day each! But, as shown here petroleum is not just used for fuel.

June 2010 3 horses were found in desperate and emanciated condtions in a junk yard. one of them a little mustang, we have named "jodie". her BLM govt. brand indicates that she was captured in 96-97 and that she is approximately 14 years old now. also that identified is that she is from a wild Nevada herd. she is still in critical condition and under the care of a private individual. her recovery will be long and hard the next two months if she survives thru this process. "jodie" may also be pregnant to add worse to bad. she was confined with a intact 2-3 yr old stallion, along with another dapple grey mare (also with serious cuts/infections to her body). "Jodie" is a broken spirited horse, there is no hope in her eyes, or her body. She has no trust of humans of any kind. Althou she has given up the spirit to fight, or object to being handled, or cared for. On her body is the war scars and signs of abuse, and mistreatments, from deep scars to sever saddle sores. whip marks that will never go away that were of the years in the hands of mankind. the misery and sorrow, the pain and torture, and i can't even imagine the fears that she has had to deal with silently and inside of herself over these years. ??!! to read more of how "jodie" was found, and rescued, where she is and where she is going now after her many years in the hands of mankinds unkindness and cruelty, read at these 2 mustang groups on care2. photos are included of the Jodie and other Mare that was rescued. http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=20674&pst=1415391 http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=18516&pst=1152503

If you would like further information about these greyhounds or can help in any way, please contact June Bazar at (401)749-1649. Eighty greyhounds now left in need of homes The daunting task of finding homes for these dogs has fallen to June Bazar, the director of the Twin River Greyhound Adoption Program. While June willingly accepts this task and is working diligently to find homes for all the greyhounds, she is fearful that she may not be able to place so many dogs before the June 30 deadline imposed on her. Rallying all resources to help After 30 years as the director of the greyhound adoption program, June has numerous resources at her disposal, including a long list of current and previous greyhound owners. In an effort to place as many dogs as possible, June has been contacting her many resources asking for help and hoping that some of these contacts may be amenable to a new adoption. She is also networking with similar greyhound adoption groups located outside of the state of Rhode Island for help. Eleven placed, so many still left homeless (Source: Twin River Greyhound Adoption Program website)

Under a relatively new law called the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act" (A.E.T.A.), activists engaged in efforts to bring needless suffering to an end for non-human animals inside factory farms, vivisection labs, circuses and the like, now potentially face charges as "terrorists" in federal courts even if their actions are peaceful and First Amendment protected.
 

Although a pre-existing law from 1992 known as the "Animal Enterprise Protection Act" was initially created to further prosecute and create harsher penalties for activists who use illegal tactics to save lives, such as liberating animals from abusive situations and causing economic damage to industries that profit from suffering, the A.E.T.A. has taken it one step further and tacked on the label of "terrorism" for such activities.

 

If labeling a person who actually saves innocent lives a "terrorist", rather than the person who systematically abuses and kills animals for a living seems Orwellian to you, the vagueness used in writing this law will be even more unsettling.

 

Although the law is allegedly intended to curb illegal actions, it essentially says that those interfering with the operations of an animal enterprise with the intent of causing economic damage are committing acts of terrorism.

 

Well, doesn't that include every single boycott, protest, campaign and demonstration to put an end to animal exploitation? Aren't we trying to cause economic damage to a company that abuses animals by boycotting them? Isn't that the whole point? When taken literally, that law goes so far as to include even living a vegan lifestyle since our very choice of diet is "disrupting animal enterprises."

 

The terms and language used in this law are far reaching and potentially very threatening to the legal Animal Rights and Animal Welfare movement.

 

 The law does include a clause that states:

"Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct (including peaceful picketing or other peaceful demonstration) protected from legal prohibition by the First Amendment to the Constitution."

 

But within less than three years of the laws passage, four activists from California involved in anti-vivisection campaigns were indicted for violating the A.E.T.A., even though none of them was involved in illegal actions and all of them adhered to completely legal First Amendment protected activities.

 

They each face up to 10 years in prison for passing out leaflets, attending demonstrations and circulating public knowledge on the Internet about known animal abusers. Does any of this fit into our ideas of terrorism or sound like terrorist activity to you?

 

The fact that the government is classifying activists as terrorists who simply want animal abuse to end is one of the most grotesque misuses of such a timely sensitive word. To compare the actions of peaceful protests to the attacks of 9/11, even if you are someone who is not aligned with the animal activist movement, is totally unreasonable.

 

Is it possible that some of this is the result of tremendous pressure from animal abusing industries that want animal protection movements to disappear. The idea of freeing animals from exploitation is simply bad for business.

 

In a time when terrorism is an actual threat to many of us, it seems terribly unfair and extremely disrespectful to those who have lost loved ones to real terrorist attacks to even remotely compare them to animal activists.

 

It is interesting to note that in the long history of the animal rights movement, not one person has been killed by an activist. That is because killing is fundamentally antithetical to what these activists are trying to achieve, which is a more just and peaceful world.

I just thought this very interesting information when i read it. althou there has been no updates on this site since 2009.  the fact that they kept up with all exporting of animals, the reasons for stopping various exports, or starting exports of live animals for foods souces.  very very educational material for those that are interested in the live animal exporting industries.

http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~kale/news/103.htm

People talk with great authority about animal rights & how people who care don't understand that animals have no rights. We have given this some thought & with regards to animal rights & responsibilities, some say they cannot have the former without the latter.

HUMANS have made themselves responsible for animals, from conception to slaughter every aspect is controlled by man. How they reproduce, what they eat, how they are kept & how they die.

THEREFORE it is humans who being responsible for these animals must give them the rights they have removed. The right to the best WELFARE in the most NATURAL way for whatever species.

Left to themselves animals control their lives without interferance from man. Wild animals have no problem with feeding, reproduction, herding etc.they were doing it long before humans evolved. Only human interferance has removed their right & opportunity to do this & humans need to restore some of these rights instead of thinking only of profit.

The right not to be artificialy inseminated, the right not to be taildocked, the right not to eat like a carnivore when being a herbivore, the right to humane slaughter & the right not to travel thousands of miles to that slaughter
