Please Don't Let Another Bear Cub Die in Russia's Hibernating Bear Hunt

Target: President Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin
Sponsored by: International Fund for Animal Welfare
It's hard to imagine the cruelty of the Russian winter bear hunt.

A mother bear is violently shaken from her winter hibernation, forced out of her den, and shot by a wealthy trophy hunter. She dies bravely protecting her den, while inside her tiny and defenseless cubs are left motherless. It's heartbreaking to think of the cubs orphaned and left to slowly freeze to death.

Each year, den hunting leaves up to 4,000 cubs motherless. Some of these homeless cubs end up as pets to local villagers, while others are taken to entertain tourists or be eaten in restaurants. Most are abandoned and left to die.

Brown bears in Russia are one of the last remaining healthy brown bear populations in the world -- Tell Russia to outlaw den hunting.

 “Illegal tortoise trade is happening in Britain” (DEFRA, 2004)
An estimated 10 million tortoises were shipped into the UK for the commercial pet trade between 1890 and 1984 before the initial ban was introduced.  This trade is back!  … and tortoises are being imported in substantial numbers.  However, DEFRA are failing to prevent this illegal trade and are in fact licensing it. These tortoises go through untold misery and often arrive here with chronic worm infestations and dehydrated, which far too often contributes to their early demise.

The Tortoise Protection Group (TPG) is campaigning for a ban on the importation of tortoises for the pet trade. Please help us keep tortoises in their natural environment by signing the on-line petition or downloading our paper petition and help us collect signatures

This tortoise was taken from the wild in Turkey in 2007    

POOR LITTLE GUY

                        Help us to stop this trade

                  With your help we can make a difference!

Save Dogs in Korea


Save Dogs in Korea!

Stop Korean government from legalizing dog meat consumption!
 


It is heartbreaking to watch dogs cruelly mistreated in Korea.

Dogs are not treated as living creatures in Korea?

They are just lucrative sources for dog farmers, breeders, government-assigned shelter runners?

Warning: The images below ARE  very disturbing.

Dog Farm Case I

The owner of these dogs is a typical dog meat vendor, having run a dog farm at Changsoo-Dong, Incheon, Korea for over 10 years with no property rights to the farm site. When the officers of Incheon local government visited the farm to make execution proceedings, they found 5 to 6 dogs were crammed in each cage, measuring 70x60x70cm3, where they could hardly move their limbs. With feces piled up over 1 meter, the bodies of dead dogs are stacked in freezers. Many of them are little puppies who died of diseases. These miserable conditions of dog farms are commonplace across Korea.

In May 2005, the dogs were removed to the current place by the officers, which was temporarily arranged on the road, and the conditions for the dogs have become much more horrific. Locked up in limited pens, the dogs are left on the asphalt and exposed to rain and snow. The officers did not install windbreaks nor roofs, because to them dogs are only stuff like canned products stacked on shelves. The dogs had to spend the harsh last winter in this horrible environment, and many of them could not survive.

When animal protection groups visited the site in March 2006, they noticed a number of injured dogs. Due to fights among them, which is not uncommon in dog farms, some dogs had no ears and/or no tails, and some were limping. On the asphalt with no drainage, their bodies were covered with their own feces and decayed food waste. Infected with scabies and other skin diseases, their skin was rotting with pus all over their bodies. The only food available, if that can be called food, was decomposing food waste. Cannibalism was occurring here and there, and new-born puppies were being eaten by starving dogs.

Dogs are suffering scabies and other skin diseases and many are also injured.
