The death of top race horse Twist Magic, who fell and broke a leg at Newbury yesterday (Wednesday), has hit national headlines. But his destruction is far from unusual. A horse dies almost every day on British racecourses. In fact, there was a second death of a horse yesterday, which received no mention in the national press. The unknown fatality was Gilsland, who collapsed and died at Bangor racecourse.

The British Horseracing Authority has refused over many years to make public the names and numbers of horses who are killed. Therefore, in 2007, Animal Aid launched an online database dedicated to exposing the high number of fatalities. Since that time, nearly 600 horses have perished on racecourses

Name: sammy & Peggy
Type: Memorial (for the deceased)
To Honor: Pet(s)
Location: , United Kingdom
for 16 years you filled my days
with love and walks and your funny ways
I miss your grin when I enter the room
The hole you've left is full of gloom
In all those years hardly a day apart
Now there's a void that's breaking my heart
Thank you for being my loyal friend
for your unconditional love to the very end
I fell in love  the day you chose me
when your great big huge paws jumped onto my knee
You'd bear  gifts of huge spiders and smelly odd socks
I'd laugh, say "ahh" or nearly die from the shock
two weeks before you reached 16 years
Your body so frail it brought me to tears
I could see in your eyes you were ready to go
But we'll be reunited one day..I just know
Peggy was waiting I've now lost you  too
It's not bye forever this chapter's just new
I know you'll both greet me with your usual joy
Till then, I love you my best girl and boy

Out in the garden there is a little white rabbit
Like Revlon torture for your clean little habits
As you wash your hair to keep it clean
You get to wonder why VosenesT green
And forget about the silent animal screams

Out in the garden there is a little white dog
Shampoo in your eyes like a burning fog
But it's tried and tested so you won't go blind
Animals killed for the good of mankind
For your shining hair so many have died

Out in the garden there is a little white cat
And you're catching cancer as you smoke that fag
"When will they find the cure?" you choke
When enough cats have died of smoke?
And they say that animals go for the throat

And the monkeys in the zoo they look so tame
In the name of science they removed their brains
To think that man evolved from this beast
Civilised savages down from the trees
The animals who run these laboratories

I'm a rabbit on fire
on fire with mascared eyes
I'm a white rat acquired
by the lab
I'm due to be shot
shot with experiment
waiting in line
for the next stab
I've got nowhere to run to
I've got nowhere to go
and no way of telling you
that none of you know
I burn in hellfire
kept alive in my deathbed
I'm a monkey with wire
in my head
I can't touch my face
rub my eyes or hear anything
suspended twixt
living and dead
they say I don't know
but I live under pressure
showing great symptons
of breakdown and fracture
I've got nowhere to run to
I've got nowhere to go
and no way of telling you
that none of you know
If I (RH) had my way
I'd be in there today
turn the voltage on you
burn you down
with the whole of your school
with your lessons on how
to dismiss others' feelings
while feeling that you're
always ever so kind
never cruel
but that's you
only you
of all us creatures on earth
that could only be you
if only you cared
not to kill not to torture
not to need to cause pain
fear and suffering
to be cool
you'd have all the friends
and the ends and the means
to live with the give
and the fox in the glove (the atmosphere)
on this jewel (the planet)
but that's you
only you
of all us creatures on earth
that could only be you
you're the mournful red eye
of the dog in the cage
the howl of despair
from the pound
forsaken forgotten
the live definition
the sad lonely meaning
of hound
and you've got nowhere to run to
nowhere to go
and no way of telling me
that this isn't so
for some of us know,
and will always care to do so

A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The word “mushroom” can also be used for a wide variety of gilled fungi, with or without stems, and the term is used even more generally, to describe both the fleshy fruiting bodies of some Ascomycota and the woody or leathery fruiting bodies of some Basidiomycota, depending upon the context of the word.

There were posters for bobby roberts  put up in the village I live in last week ...in the spar and the pubs........and the VETS!

*print outs of this are now in my handbag...

Read up on on what you are promoting for a few lousy quid.
Bobby Roberts ...Cruel circus  Boycott animal circuses


At Bobby Roberts Circus, currently performing near Huntingdon, we found similar scenes. On the night we visited a horse, a pony and a camel were forced to perform tricks in front of a rowdy crowd. The mismatched animals were cajoled and whipped until they trotted around the outside of the ring. The pathetic looking creatures frequently collided as they desperately tried to obey the commands barked at them. But this was just the beginning of their humiliation. Three little stands were placed in the centre of the circus ring and one by one the animals were forced to leap onto the platforms. There was plenty of room for the pony but barely enough for the horse. The camel just looked ridiculously large when he finally made it onto the tiny perch. link

Anne the elephant is 52 years old, suffers from arthritis, and is touring the UK with Bobby Roberts Super Circus. For over ten years ADI have been following the plight of this tragic elephant, including flying a vet to her when she became desperately ill. Anne’s tragic story symbolises the plight of circus animals. She lives in a wholly unnatural environment, either chained by the legs or living in a small enclosure. When the circus moves from place to place, as it does most weeks, she spends unbearably long hours shut in her transporter – up to nineteen hours at a time. For decades, Anne has toured the UK every summer with two other Asian elephants, Janey and Beverley; but when they died, this social animal was left utterly alone. A metal hook on the end of a bar (an elephant hook, or ankus) is dug into Anne’s skin to make her comply with commands. ADI has filmed a worker hooking Anne with some considerable force. link

 


Horse drops dead in UK circus ring

Because of the large number of complaints Captive Animals' Protection Society receive about this circus (particularly about the horses - despite what may have been said in parliament and the media recently, domesticated animals - not just wild animals - do suffer in circuses!) and the number of people who come out of the circus upset, CAPS has produced a 'public complaint slip' that can be given to people who come out of the circus and say how upset they are. So if you're holding demos at any circus please email CAPS at info@captiveanimals.org for a copy of the slip. Preferably get people to fill the info in straight away and give it to you at the demo, or ask them to send the info direct to CAPS.

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, dou, dou, dou, dou, dou

Another mother's breakin',
Heart is taking over.
When the vi'lence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they're still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a

Send "Zombie" Ringtone to your Cell

The face I see reflected, I know so very well,
Yet it seems so unfamiliar
a hollow empty shell
I know its me I see there
the face I wear each day,
but my soul it feels so separate
as though it travels it's own way
I lived a hundred heartbreaks
and somehow made it through
had my spirit melt like snowflakes
Despair at what to do
I feel so very weary
the road goes on and on
I cannot see a resting place
Or where the sun has shone
I will travel on my life map
keep marching right ahead
and battle every miss hap
my heart a piece of lead
I am looking through a window
watching my own life
Its like a tired old stage show
And it cuts me like a knife
I cannot see tomorrow
know if my heart may lift
but sunny thoughts I'll borrow
The greatest precious gift
