The Rodeo in Gaspar SC, more specifically (CTG HEART OF THE VALLEY) includes pursuit of oxen and forced riding on horses that do not accept to be mounted totally against the will of the animal, which happens every year in that city. The suffering of the animals is clear and causes a totally negative repercussion for the state. The focus of this undersigned is purely for the welfare of animals, but there are several negative favors around that PERSECUTION that occurs at that specific time. In addition, many children are taken to the scene and witness the momentary pursuit of the animals. What is being taught to future generations? Is it right to disregard and objectify animals? What is cool to watch the suffering of others? These animals ask for help! They feel much anguish every year, just to satisfy human greed and pride. We have to unite to end this absurdity! Sign and help the animals!
The Jaguar situation is yet one more reason why I hate Zoos and the l;ike.
One does not even need to read what is happening to feel sad or depressed. This poor baby. I can imagine the sense of loneliness, deepression, and hopelessness s/he must feel as so many do.
Up to date. Thank you all
What a smart kid to see the show but then look up information and learn and care abour what she read.
I am 11 years old, and I recently watched a show myself and started looking up at Orcas. However once I saw the video above and others like it, I realized how we were sacrificing Orcas for our own pleasure.
Orcas, one of the most interesting animals in the world, have been taken from their usual habitat and are being held captive. These INNOCENT animals are not being treated properly in aquariums, for the sake of human entertainment and money. The life span in the wild for a male is 70 years and a female is 100 years; however being held in captivity, they do not have space to swim, they are starved so they can learn medicine, and I know their life span in the captive is 13 years only! A MASSIVE difference. Why should the Orcas be effected by OUR entertainment?
Once again I say that human intelligence is merely an oxymoron.
It would seem that this has been posted before but it needs more signatures. I won't even go into how I feel about what these $%^$%$%&64 are doing. Joan posted it in in PB today and I signed in March. It says there is an update but I just get the page that says I signed.
update: May 26, 2019 author: Minna V. Sarah gave birth to a baby cub! Her little newborn has been stolen from her and is being handraised and exploited by staff, and the cub is already on display and making money for the zoo! A little baby Jaguar is missing her mother! And Sarah is missing... view full update

I singef both and read the article and some of the "question" one. I hope he gets the maiximum. How much evidence do they need besides the state of tha animals?Does any NEED zoos and aquaria? No, they are there solely for the entertainent of people. The San Diego Zoo does do some good things but in the end they are a zoo and could probably do the same things with out the whole "soo" part. Thanks Marilyn.
In the cafe "Balu", which is located on Minsk Highway near the town of Vyazma, a bear is kept in a cage at the entrance. For a wild animal, this is too little space for life, which is also located near the highway! And the bear lives there for more than 17 years.
The cafe owners claim that they saved him from poachers and are ready to give it away if they offer the best conditions of detention. But if the bear was rescued, then why keep right next to the highway? This is not help - it is a mockery of a living creature, which is used for promotional purposes. If you visit the site, you will immediately see the ad
"The most important business card of our cafe is the living Baloo bear!" What is the right of the owners of this institution to play on the life of a living creature?
I cannot live in peace knowing that a bear is sitting in a cage at the present moment, and its whole existence consists in attracting guests and cool selfies ..
Exploring! That is something they did not get to do. Thanks for the photo, Jan.
The US could ban animals in traveling circuses? I am in shock if that is true and comes to pass. I would be in happy shock though. Thanks Marulyn.
Close the zoo in Lujan, Buenos Aires.
By Andrea Germanos
Animal welfare advocates are praising soon-to-be introduced legislation in the U.S. that would ban the use of wild animals in traveling circuses.
The measure, the Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA), is set to be introduced Tuesday in the House of Representatives.
Sponsored by Arizona Reps. Raúl Grijalva (D) and David Schweikert (R), TEAPSA would amend the Animal Welfare Act by restricting the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses and other traveling performances. The animals are kept prisoner and subject to tortuous treatment in the name of entertainment.
"Confined, abused, and forced to perform, this is the sad reality of circus life for the animals," said TEAPSEA backer and actor Ed Asner in a statement. "The suffering never, ever stops, until they die. Let's finally say 'no' to these horror shows and 'yes' to TEAPSPA!"
The legislation is championed by Animal Defenders International, which has exposed cruelty by handlers in traveling acts and has advocated to secure wild animals' freedom.
Excellent news Jan,kind of you to let us know,thank you for the picture!!
YEA Jan, great news!!! Welcome in your new home sweet baboons!

Everyone back and baboons settling in well!!
The news is full of stories of animal abuse in the circus. Most people are aware that animals are circulating and are only abused and neglected but also suffering from boredom and stress. October, October, October. While many cities, states and countries are banning circuses using animals. Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus, the nation's oldest and most grandiose circus, realized the major shift in public attitude towards the country and the business after a century of traveling the US MOST PEOPLE Why, then, does the management of the SC State Fair think it is a good idea to employ a circus this year? Shameful.
All done. Thank you ladies
Honourable David Lametti, Minister of Justice for Canada
Goal: Punish the owner who allegedly neglected over 100 animals in a dilapidated zoo.
Over 100 animals suffered when they were reportedly neglected and denied life-saving care at a zoo. Investigators apparently found multiple species of animals in poor health with limited access to food. Demand that justice be served in this case.
Hoping that Graham,Mike and passengers arrive safely, an overwhelming trip!!
Poor baby Dumbo. Humans are just vile.
Exhausted., relieved, and satisfied. I am sure their passengers will be happy as well.
The second petition somehow goes back to the Becky one so ignore it and if I find it again I will post it unless someone gets there first.Meanwhile there is this one. Jsut shoot the people who did this.
They didn't expect to drive back yesterday. They should have had a day without driving after 1,557 miles. But the vet and staff were all ready for darting yesterday morning so they had no choice. Don't think any of them had a clue how much driving Graham and Mike did. They could not leave the Baboons in the ambulance for an extra night while they rest. Air conditioning does not work when vehicle is unattended. They are going to be absolutely exhausted when they get back. Should be around 10 pm tonight.
That was singed already. Thank you Marilyn.
Such a punim my Jewish grandmother would have said. A long way to go but happiness at the end.
Teats came to my eyes seeing those animals in the dark. The owner should be forced to pay for their care or at least part of it.I am tired of abisers getting off while rescuers, sanctuarries, etc. carry the burden of the cost even if they do it with love.
Please save Becky the elephant ð and all the other circus animals!
These Zoo Owners Have Abandoned their Animals. Now Their Fate is up in the Air.
Still quite a distance to drive Jan!
Thank you Monika!! They are north of Bordeaux at the moment.
I wish Graham, the team and the new residents a safe trip home dear Jan!

Authorities said many of the animals didn't have access to water or food and appeared to be suffering from medical conditions
Up to date with all
Dignified Minister of Education of the XXI Constitutional Government,
I hereby ask you and the Ministry that leads you to take steps to verify the type of materials that are being distributed in some schools in the country. I speak of materials promoting tauromáquica activity as an activity, I quote, "ethics". I am aware that bullfighting is still a legal activity, although only in 8 countries in the world, where Portugal was included. However, being a legal activity does not mean that it is not violent, especially for children and young people.
I take the liberty of reminding you. that in February 2014 the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child sent a recommendation to the Portuguese State to remove their children from the tauric activity.
1,500miles to go is a long way for any human or animal but I'm sure they will arrive safely, Jan Thank you for all you do
On their way back - another 1500 miles to go with the precious cargo.
Have a great day, Jan, with your new residents.
I signed the two I could. The CA one is for CA only.
Good Morning Monika - yes lovely view!! Over 1500 miles but he arrived at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
What a nice view from the front seat Jan!!

Graham is 342 kms from Ayamonte at the moment.
Catching up petitions! Thanks much Ladies!
Dear Jan, it is great that Graham is on the road again to fetch the monkeys in Spain!! Please keep us updated!
Because today it is high time we refused the arrival of circuses with animals in our beautiful town.
Yes, we love the circus: its gaiety, its colors, its trumpets its clowns, its equilibrists, its trapeze artists and its jugglers who plunge us back into childhood .. And because we love it, because it is our childhood and that 'it is timeless, we must help it to transform itself as other circuses have done it successfully, we must help it to reinvent itself to always make children laugh and smile but: WITHOUT CRYING ANIMALS.
The Bulls are animals like everyone, the difference is that they are extremely mistreated by the processes
Phases of a bull before dying:
The process that takes to prepare a bull begins a day before the bullfight. 24 hours before entering the arena, the bull has been subjected to a dark confinement so that when released, the light and the shouts of the spectators terrify him and he tries to flee by jumping the barriers, which produces the image in the public that the bull is fierce, but the natural condition of the bull is to flee, NOT to attack.
Signed all. Thank you Marilyn
All done and up to date thank you dear Monika, Kate, Jan and Shanta
I signed both and will share them. I also share your feelings of nager, frustration, and being sick of the species to which we belong. I feel that way every single day Extinction for humans.
If this picture doesn't tell people that it's wrong to "force elephants and other wild animals" to perform I don't know what does! This poor creature has completely lost his will to live!! I am sick of humanity!!
Signed all. Thank you Kate and Marilyn
this sure is not what I would call entertainment .
There ought to be demonstrations outside these horror shows ever week if there are not already. Buena suerte to Graham (good luck) and tell him to give those matadors hell.
Will keep you informed on the trip to Spain.
Every year, thousands of bulls endure a bloody death in bullrings across Spain. These deaths are slow and painful: men on horseback and on foot drive lances and barbed sticks into bulls' backs before the tormented animals are stabbed with a sword or dagger.
At the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, terrified bulls are shocked with electric prods to force them out onto the streets, where they're harassed by screaming mobs. The panicked animals often slip and crash into walls, resulting in broken bones and other injuries. Later, these same bulls will be barbarically killed in the bullring – a fact many tourists are unaware of.
Compassionate people understand that this violence is needless and unjustifiable, and opposition to bullfighting is growing both within Spain and around the world. To date, over 100 towns have banned bullfighting, and according to an Ipsos MORI poll, over 80 per cent of Spanish people oppose the cruel event.
It's time for the Spanish government to step up and protect animals. Please sign our petition to the Prime Minister calling for a national ban on bullfights and bull runs.
I keep thinking about that bull. I put this in the 'goo humans' section but thought I would post it here as well.

Yay for Graham! What a wonderful feeling to save so many.
Didn't open the link Kate - I understand what you mean.
The Ayamonte problem is solved and Graham will be there on Monday.

They killed a bull who was injuring people yet they see no problem with the matador (killer) killing him. I am not sure why this emoji shakes its head but I shake mine every day at the stupidity, entitlent, and so on and so on of people.
France. 6 injured in Vergèze on 12/05/2019 - For a total stop on Bullfighting!
Moved from old topic
Read this terrifying description!!
Feria de Vergèze on Sunday, May 12, 2019 -
AND IF CHILDREN WERE KILLED ????
An oversized squadron goes to the foule who is going to attend a "spectacle" from another time that is running. 6 blesses dont 1 grave , 3 parmi the forces of order. Le Taureau was on strike with fifty balloons.
Small explanation of what happens to a bull during a bullfight, knowing that on average they are 6 bulls to be "treated" in this way during a single bullfight:
During a bullfight, the bull is pierced and tortured by 9 blades successively:
- the spade, which shreds the lifting muscles of the neck to force him to lower his head and reduce his strength. (The depth of post mortem wounds by veterinarians can be as much as 20 cm and reach the lungs.)
- 6 banderillas, 7 cm long harpoons (used to evacuate blood from spike wounds) cause too rapid a death by internal bleeding).
- The sword, supposed to be planted between the spine and scapula and quickly kill the animal during the thrust.In fact, it only suffocates the bull by piercing the lungs.
- The puntilla (dagger) intended to cut the medulla oblongata to finally complete the animal, but it takes several tests (the "record" is 34).
HOW MANY INJURED OR DEATH WILL IT STILL BE? WITNESSES SAY IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE SERIOUS
We ask Mr. François de Rugy to stop bullfighting in France, but also to the mayor of Vergèze, Mr. René Balana, to take his responsibilities and decide immediately the final cessation of bullfights in his commune.
Moved from old topic
To the attention of all the anti-bullfighting and all those who love animals, to
which we ask to support us by signing, diffusing and sharing to the maximum the present petition:
Mr. François de RUGY, ecologist and ANTI-CORRIDAS very long ago, was appointed Minister of State, Minister of the Ecological and Solidarity Transition on September 5, which is an incredible opportunity for the unfortunate bulls, bulls, calves "bullfights", who are tortured and tortured to death in these barbaric "shows" that are the bullfights and the like (and also for the cows potentially gestating of the future bulls "bullfights" which are martyred with the pike for "test their courage ").
