Animals  (tags: Animal Welfare, Extreme Animal Cruelty, Pig Slaughter Ritual in Hanoi, Stop the Lunar New Year Pig Slaughter in, URGENT ACTION! )

- 1919 days ago -
Every 6th of the lunar new year in a Hanoi village (which is February 15, 2013) a pig is brutally chopped in two so that people can smear banknotes with its blood in the belief that it brings luck. Despite condemnation the festival continues. ACT NOW!

Peoples the world over are guilty of barbarity towards animals, but it is a fact, that, animals and the world would be so much better off without the existence of oriental, asian, middle eastern and african races of the human species, they all have a far greater level of inhuman barbarity towards animals.

Noted and signed - I have no time, no love, no forgiveness and no compassion for humans that do these atrocious barbaric and inhumane things to defenceless animals. In fact, all I have is a seething hatred towards them - they do not belong here, they are from Hell because no normal human being can act in such a cruel manner. They are gruesome monsters with no heart or soul and nations need to rise up against them and inflict the same cruelty upon them as they do on innocent animals.

Just don't understand how anyone could get a kick out of such cruel and barbaric behaviour! Is it because these people think ALL animals are put on this planet for Man to abuse? Do they think that animals don't feel pain or fear in the same way we do, or are they just plain evil and/or stupid? Pigs are remarkably sensitive and intelligent creatures: I'd really appreciate it if someone - particularly a Vietnamese person could explain why this innocent, defenceless creature is put through this brutal torture, because at this moment in time, I'm sat here trying desperately to get my head around it.

Not only is this practice despicable for the innocent animal, it creates a destructive, maniacal nature in the people perpetrating the horror. Simply put, it HARDENS a person.

Perhaps, the governments of such countries, wants their society to exhibit such a attitude.

as long as humans eat pigs, they will be tortured and brutally murdered. this is horrific, to say the least. most humans have no respect for the life of an animal, and treat them as if they were inanimate objects. even pet owners are guilty of this. most of them, who love their pets think nothing of wearing or eating an animal. it is so, so devastating to know this. thank you, henriette. thank you, michelle.

Remember that animals feel fear, pain, happiness, sadness and sorrow like humans. But they cannot express in the same way. But look at their behaviour, look at their eyes, truly they understand.

We are the living graves of murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites. How can we hope in this world to attain the peace we say we are so anxious for? --George Bernard Shaw

If you have men who will exclude any of god's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. --St. Francis of Assisi

This is horrific animal cruelty! Animal cruelty shouldn’t be part of any festival or celebration.
To commit animal cruelty debases any country and its people! The killing of this poor animal and in such a heinous way makes this festival utterly abhorrent. Celebrating should have nothing to do with making another living being suffer. This doesn’t celebrate life, but instead shows no respect for life! This festival in which this poor animal is made to suffer so, reflects very negatively on Vietnam and gives the impression to the world that your country is regressive in terms of its treatment of animals because it allows such cruelty to an innocent, helpless animal! If Vietnam wants to be well regarded in the International community, then it must stop this brutal pig festival at Nem Thuong village! When you inflict such harm and suffering to an innocent, it will never bring you good luck because you’re not abiding by the laws of the universe. You must do good to get good in return!

This is superstitious and demonic! Yes demonic, because this pig is being sacrificed just like in a satanic ritual. Just because local ethnic groups throughout the world have their "colorful traditions" does not mean they have the right to make animals or people suffer. This comment is also valid when it comes to our Western culture of excess and materialism where farm animals are tortured before being slaughtered. So many people in our culture love their steak or pork chops so much!

I can't even express how sick that is!

Why can't rituals involve the slicing of a tomato or apple for example, why do they involve blood and the suffering of other living beings?

I believe those who celebrate death never understood the meaning of life.

Hope all of you who are horrified by this disgusting "celebration" give thought to the billions upon billions of farm and research animals who suffer this same fate every year — and in many cases undergo far worse. Don't let your anger fade away tomorrow when this is out of sight and mind. Use that anger to do something to change their fates, too.

We need some EFFECTIVE leadership. Why are these horrors overlooked year after year? Thousands upon thousands of us are pleading, worldwide for change and it just doesn't seem to be happening. What can be done? Certainly we must keep trying.

I will be signing this but want to remind people that in most of the world (including the USA) there are no humane slaughter laws for chickens, rabbits, and fish. We cannot keep pointing fingers at cruelty in other nations until we address our own.

Noted Signed! Why do people feel and think that animals do not have intelligence, feelings and emotions?
Pigs are proven to be very intelligent and are being accepted into homes as pets. Not too long ago an aging woman who had a pig as a pet had a heart attack and was lying on her kitchen floor. Her pig ran out the door and to the highway that was near the home and proceeded to lay down in the middle of the road to try and stop a car which is what happened and then jumped up which led the driver to follow the pig out of curiousity and the pig led him to the hoime and the woman's life was saved. It was in many newspapers.

Petition signed and shared!
My comment was:
This is a violent tradition and it needs to STOP!! These pigs suffer greatly!!
Why not start a NEW tradition - like having a Ceramic Golden pig and let the people rub their money on it. That would cut down on the animal cruelty to the live pigs!
