How to Cope With Mass Murder

It is much easier to look away and say, ” I cannot handle seeing this” or “There is no way I can watch this”. But there are people watching, and not only watching but taking part in cruelty towards other beings. Are they all heartless, sadistic monsters? Then most of the world’s population would fall into this category. No, many of them believe their actions are necessary for whatever reasons. So it is up to those people who believe in letting other beings live their lives without human torment to reach out and find convincing arguments against inhumane behavior.

Two animal welfare campaigners, Jayasimha Nuggehalli and Alokparna Sengupta, went ahead and watched the mass murder of thousands of animals in the name of God. They did not turn away. Instead, they reported these gruesome actions so that the world knows and cannot turn away. How very brave and impressive.

Here is their story

Please share and spread it around widely.

Good News: The Race Might Soon Be Over

Many people like to gamble, that´s why there are so many casinos spread over the world. Along with gambling comes betting. And betting is often tied to live beings. Boxing, car races … and animal races. The two most favorite races are horse races and greyhound races. Most of those betting on these animals have no idea what a miserable life these animals lead until they either die on the tracks, are killed due to injuries obtained during a race, or are killed once they no longer can perform adequately.

“A Travis County, Texas, judge ruled that racetracks in Texas could not use slot machines to make up for their losses on live racing. This means that the cruelty of dog racing at Gulf Greyhound Park will not be subsidized and two former dog tracks will not re-open as “racinos!” The state’s last operational track will now stand or fall on its own.”

Does a University Need an Elephant?

Many universities have traditions, most of them are fun for all. But having an elephant walk for a university? Together with the advancement of knowledge the advancement of learning should be proven here. Let the students be creative and start a new tradition – without cruelty towards other beings.

“Despite learning of the cruelty and abuse endured by elephants who are exploited for publicity stunts, Texas A&M University is moving forward with plans to maintain its archaic tradition of hosting live elephants as part of its annual Elephant Walk, an event designed to pay homage to exiting seniors. Join PETA in urging Texas A&M to wake up to the age of compassion for others!

There is no excuse for an institution of higher education to be promoting cruelty, especially among this generation of compassionate and socially aware students. Speak up for exploited elephants TODAY and ask Texas A&M to be true to its core values by compassionately carrying on its tradition without the use of a live elephant.”

Stephen Huneck was an artist who dedicated much of his work to dogs. He and his wife Gwen opened up Dog Mountain to the public and since the year 2000 many dog events have taken place in this beautiful part of Vermont. Dogs get to run free and can enjoy some fun times with many other dogs.

One last dog party is coming up:

“Saturday October 11th, noon to 4. It’s our last dog party of the year, and it should be great!

It’s the most beautiful time of the year in New England, and it’s time once again to celebrate the season at Dog Mountain’s annual Fall Dog Party!

There will be a host of activities for the whole family, from foot-tapping live music by Vermont folk duo The Endorsements, to a bounce house for the kids, door prizes, food, dog contests, and more.

We hope you can take the time to grab your camera, hop in the car, and take the scenic ride to leaf-romping, four-legged fun and smiles at Dog Mountain. Your dogs will thank you with many wags of their tail and wet kisses.

The Fall Dog Party 2014 is free to the public and will be held rain or shine

If you would like to help Dog Mountain promote the Fall Dog Party, please print out our poster Here.

Or, if you would like to donate an hour or two of your time to help out at the party, please fill out a volunteer form Here.”

Save the Date for Elephants and Rhinos: October 4th, 2014

Bildschirmfoto 2014-09-22 um 09.09.57

Traditionally, October 4th is World Animal Day. For over 80 years, this day has been marked as the day to spread the word on animal awareness. There will be many events, here is one spread out over all continents:

In Defense of Animals is organizing a March for Elephants and Rhinos:

“In Africa, four elephants are illegally killed for their ivory every hour with only 300,000 to 500,000 alive today. Every nine hours a rhino is killed for his/her horn and it’s estimated that fewer than 22,000 African rhino now remain. In South Africa, more lions survive now in captivity, where they are bred for petting zoos and canned hunts, than roam in the wild. Poaching helps to support terrorist activities and is contributing to the destabilization of Africa – killing humans and animals. This tragic state of the world’s iconic animals will soon lead to their extinction, unless we collectively come together to reverse the current trend.”
