Auch im Tierschutz kann ein David gegen den Palmöl-Goliath gewinnen, wie die kleine Organisation Save Our Borneo bewiesen hat:

“Ein Gerichtsurteil in Indonesien zeigt, dass Umweltschützer auch gegen eine mächtige Palmölfirma gewinnen können: Das Unternehmen Bumitama Agri Ltd. hat Mitte Juli vor dem Obersten Gerichtshof einen zweijährigen Prozess verloren. Der Firma, die an der Börse in Singapur notiert ist, wurde nachgewiesen, auf Borneo 7.000 Hektar Primärwald ohne Genehmigung gerodet zu haben.”

Pigs Would Support Punjab´s Decision

Is Punjab going to lead the way in preventing cruelty toward pigs? If only other countries would follow in the footsteps of this country´s grand decision:

“Back in June we posted on Facebook about shutting down India’s only gestation crate facility, a swine farm seeking to introduce this intensive confinement practice into the country. Sows confined in gestation crates aren’t able to turn around and often can’t lie down comfortably for months at a time. Such extreme confinement causes physical and mental suffering for these intelligent, sociable animals.

Closing the facility was a good start, but we also wanted to win broader and long-lasting protection for pigs, and we have good news to report!With further encouragement, the Government of Punjab has now issued an official direction making this type of intensive confinement an offense under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Officials in the government confirmed with us this week that their focus is now on alternatives.”

What to Do When Threats towards Companion Animals Prolong Abusive Relationships?

Photo: ALDF

Photo: ALDF

Women (and sometimes men, too) who are in an abusive relationship will stay when they do not know where to take their beloved pet. Holding the pet hostage therefore is another form of torture. And so far, there often is hardly any choice for those being abused.

“Many perpetrators of domestic violence threaten violence against companion animals as a way of exerting control over victims who are hesitant to leave their abusers without a safe solution for their pets. Because few domestic violence shelters are equipped to house companion animals, many survivors return to their abusers or delay leaving in the first place — out of concern for the safety of pets they must leave behind when seeking refuge at a women’s shelter. The PAWS Act fills this critical void by extending broader, more uniform protection for companion animals and by making sure victims of domestic violence have a safe place to go with their pets.”

Chinchillas Are Waiting For New Homes

There are many chinchillas being kept as pets. Subjectively, I believe most of them are in homes unsuited for these rodents whose looks make them more “likable” than for example rats. Since chinchillas can live for up to twenty years chances are they will not be kept by the same people their whole lives. These little animals come from the Andes mountain range, do not like heat nor high humidity. But more often than not, they have to live in surroundings totally unsuitable for them. And then there is their beautiful fur. Some people would rather wear their chinchilla as coat than take care of the live animal.

“Valley View Chinchilla Ranch masqueraded as a breeder of “pets,” despite slaughtering, skinning, and selling the pelts of any chinchillas who supposedly did not “work out” as companions and even going so far as to hide its involvement in the fur industry—including a freezer containing pelts—from the public. The facility owner admitted to denying chinchillas veterinary care, performing painful medical procedures—including limb amputations—herself without pain relief, and using a method of painful electrocution deemed “unacceptable” by the American Veterinary Medical Association.”

Who Wants to See Animals in Tiny Cages?

Winning over the government to help protect animals in human custody is urgently needed to help avoid disaster. There are many wild animals in the hands of people who either do not have the means, the knowledge, the empathy or all of the above to care for an animal who is supposed to live in the wild.

“Next week, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will consider positive new amendments to its regulations governing the possession of big exotic cats, non-human primates, bears, wolves, and other dangerous wild animals. These amendments will close a loophole that might otherwise enable unscrupulous exhibitors to obtain an exemption from the state’s restrictions on private possession of dangerous species. They also will allow for the Department to make key, unannounced inspections at facilities that house dangerous wild animals.”

Where Do Wild Animals Belong?

Photo:PeTA

On my daily walk to school I passed by a house where the second story windows opened to an almost jungle-like view. And sometimes, if I was lucky, I could see a brown, furry creature pass by the window. Whenever this happened my school mates had to drag me on so that I would not miss class since I rather wanted to stay and watch, hoping for more than a glimpse of whoever lived up there. Rumors about who this was were abundant, from a dwarf to a child with fur to some fantastic toy. But eventually I did find out who it was I was waiting to see: a chimpanzee, living right in the middle of my home town, a town far away from any jungle, let alone any natural habitat where chimpanzees live in the wild.

I was desperate to get a closer look, even had the courage to ring the door bell. But to my utter disappointment I never was allowed to enter the house and never got to meet this chimpanzee. One day the windows were empty, no lush foliage, no movement, no chimpanzee. The people and with them the chimpanzee were gone.

In hindsight, it probably was prudent not to let anyone wander into their house. But it definitely was also ignorant and cruel to have a chimpanzee live there with them, this social creature all by himself, without family, far away from his natural habitat.

There is a bill addressing this situation that needs more support to go forward:

“A bill intended to protect citizens and wild animals has elicited support and a compassionate response from both parties and is moving into the next stage necessary for approval. The Captive Primate Safety Act (H.R. 2856/S. 1463) passed the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works in late July, setting it up for a vote in the whole chamber.”

Shooting Wolves for Fun?

Photo: Serdar Ukun

Photo: Serdar Ukun

Humans have been hunters and gatherers for many thousand years. To survive, it was necessary to hunt and only the fittest would survive. The fittest hunters as well as the fittest hunted. Nowadays, no animal has a chance against the weaponry used by hunters. But nowadays, humans hunt for pleasure, not out of necessity.

“A hunters’ rights organization in Idaho wants to turn the killing of wolves into a contest. A request has been made to hold a predator-killing derby every five years. If passed, it could mean disaster for local wolf populations.”
