Poaching and Slaughtering Animals is WRONG and it's technically animal creulty!!! It's just NOT right, millions of animals are DYING every single day for their skin. Poachers act as if animal's lives are just some little specks in their way.
Many animals are being killed such as seals,horses,tigers,wolfs,dogs,cats, even birds and pigs etc. for their skin,feathers,organs, and fur. POACHING AND SLAUGHTERING IS PETHETIC!!!
Maureen McLaughlin has admitted to drowning over 650 dogs, pups, cats and kittens since July of 2002. She has kept pieces of fur of each animal and labelled them so she can remember each one, like a serial killer would remember his victims.
These poor animals were put in a pet carrier and submerged into a trashcan of water. This is a most horrific death!!

As more UK vets opt out of provide out of hours service, Vets Now are moving in to provide out of hours service. While the standard of care may be good, this is leading to VERY high costs for pet owner who need to use their services.
It may be a cost efficient option for the vet but the charges are leading to unnecessary delays in treatment as owners (and rescues) find it difficult to meet costs.
The movement for one surgery to provide care for a large geographical area also causes problems in getting the animals to the surgery.
Cruelty to animals has gone on long enough. Punishment should be stronger. Remember Jane Goodall.
Would you beat or starve your own cat or dog? Well people out there do, and some of the most likely think it's okay, mabey their parents did, maybe their best friends do it, maybe they do it for sheer entertainment.
Punishment for animal abuse should be stronger! A person who beats, or starves a human doesnt go to jail for a few years and then just be released, they are punished, so what if its not a human, most people in the US cant even find us on the world map, or know that polar bears live in the norther hemisphere, not with the penguins in the southern. If animals could talk, I bet they could know that, humans take their rights for granted, while animals are killed for sport, just trying to live, animals don't kill for joy, some people think,"well, the lions kill the baby lions sometimes" only if they arent their child/cub, lion males, in order to keep their family in charge, they have to get rid of other males cubs.
This is an issue that I cant stay quiet on, I may be this shy kid in school, but not when animals are being harmed, after all, its their world too. Remember, my hero, and idol, Jane Goodall.
It seems the slaughter of horses that once roamed free has begun.
Before shipping, California horses are sent to slaughter houses in Texas and as far away as Canada. The horses are placed into over-crowded holding pens, standing in disease-infested muck.
Often sick, they are crammed into double-decked cattle trucks. Without sufficient room to hold their heads upright, they travel for 36 hours through summer heat or brutal winter cold without stopping for rest, food or water.
At the slaughter house, the horse is electrically prodded into the "kill box" to be repeatedly bludgeoned in the skull by a dead-bolt gun with a four-inch nail. Alive, and often conscious, the horse is then shackled by a rear leg, hoisted into the air, its throat slit and body dismembered.
No horse is spared this ordeal.
The hunting of animals is supported in many states in America, and not just in America, in the whole world.
In the case where hunting keeps your family alive it is entirely accepted, but hunting for sport is another matter altogether.
All donations to Savebabe.com will be used to help Animals Australia highlight the plight of this intelligent species.
Animals Australia firmly believes that the vast majority of Australians, once fully aware of the suffering of pigs in factory farms, will vote for change through the choices that they make. Informing them is crucial.
Our current advertisements and billboards which have assisted us to launch the savebabe.com campaign have been funded through the donations of caring Australians.
However, this is only the beginning - we need to reach every Australian.
In a recent edition of the British “Guardian Weekly” internationally renowned naturalist Lyall Watson commented about pigs, " I know of no other animals that are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open-mouthed enthusiasm".
Savebabe.com will work towards ensuring that these animals are provided with the world that they are meant to live in – not the one devoid of hope and sunshine that they currently endure in Australia.
248. STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY!
I saw a picture of someone’s pet animal that they have killed and I was distraught. Many animals and pets are getting killed every year for either food or just for fun.
I hear people talking about wanting to hurt their own pets and wildlife that don't need to be disturbed. We don't think they should get away with this any longer. In America they can arrest them if they see any thing wrong with the animal. In Australia the animals just get taken away. How is that stopping people from hurting these poor animals?
The owners/idiots are getting away with it and getting more to hurt or even kill.
249. Dog Control UK
It is reported that more than 350 children were admited to Alder Hey hospital between Oct '05-Oct 06 as victims of attacks by dogs. Many of these injuries required surgery.
More recently we have read reports of children being killed by dogs in the UK.
Strict controls need to be put in place to protect the public from dangerous animals - the UK public need to put pressure on the government to introduce laws to protect us before another child is killed.
THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ACT, 1960 NOW NEEDS ITS REVIEW & AMENDMENTS AS THE PUNISHMENTS UNDER THIS ACT IS MINOR.
THE CITIZENS OF INDIA & THE ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ALSO NEEDS MORE AWARENESS AMONG THEM ABOUT THE ACT. WHERE AS THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA ARTICLE 51 A(g) DEFINE THE MORAL DUTIES OF EVERY CITIZENS.
251. Ban Bullfighting
Up until recently, I have been like soo many other people in the world. I say I care about animals, and i even became vegitarian, but when i saw the torture these bulls and calfs go through, I realised that I was not doing enough to help.
What I'd been saying was only words, and I had taken no actions. after learning more about what was actually being done to these poor innocent creatures, I am taking a step and beginning to make a difference. To do this i need your help!
These bulls are chased in the middle of screaming people until they run out of breath, and fall, or get hurt and fall. Then the 'bullfighter' stabs spear into the animals body and even though the animal is helpless, and crying out in pain, they carry on, all in the name of SPORT?
Take a look on the internet at the cruelty of this game, and I am sure if you are a decent person, you will sign this and help me to help them! I beg you, something must be done. This is not natural, nor neccesary!
Three slaughter houses are hidden within the United States of America. Three hell buildings that steal the lives of thousands of innocent animals.
Transported in cramped cattle trucks or tractor trailors, mares, stallions, and foals are taken to the slaughter daily. Malnurished, starving, dieing, the animals are packed together in pens awaiting their death. For many the conditions in which they are kept get to them before the slaughter does and are dead before they hit the box.
The process begins with a 'stunning'. Stunning as it is, this does not mean the emotion. 'Stunning' of a horse is when a metal rod is shot directly through their foreheads into their skulls and deep within the brain. This action obviously paralyzes the animal. They are then thrown down a shoot into a 'kill box' where they are taken out and lifted upside down to be hung by their hind legs.
Their throats are slashed and left to bleed out to death. From there, their hides are sliced off for leather like a cow. Hooves are ground into hoof glue and the meat can also me made into glue, or dog food, or even transported to other parts of the world where eating horse meat is a delicacy.
But if you ask me it's disgusting and repulsive and needs to be put to an end.
THE ANIMAL SHELTERS IN OUR AREA ARE KILLING ANIMALS AT A SMALL AGE! !
PLEASE HELP US
LOVE THE HALEY'S.
Its proven throughout the entire world that any breed of dog large or small can be aggresive toward's other animals and humans, But it is only the Pit Bull Terrier that is targeted and brought up in the media !
Why should the whole breed be punished and not just the dog that commited the offence ?
I belive that any dog that harm's another dog or a human should be punished and the owner of that dog should be brought to court and also punished by the law !
We have written to out MP about this before and he did nothing so now we are going to take it up a stage.
We are going to send this Petition to Tony Blair and pressure him to ban unlicenced firework displays or make it harder to get hold of them.
256. Save the Seals!
Every year, innocent seals are slaughtered in Canada. Since when did any creature deserve to die? And they never did anything to us.
I mean, how would you like it if you or your child was beaten with a club? Not very much, I don't think. No animal should be treated this way. Stop the seal hunt! :-(
Whatever animal that is being hunted brings them 1 step closer to extinction.
Animals are hunted for their food, fur and other things. A type of fox is hunted because it is believed to have healing remidies.
The tigers are hunted for their fur.
Some animals are captured so people can sell them as pets.
Whatever the reason is this is animal cruelty.
There have been too many cases where animal abuse had been done and the accused did not get proper punishment for the crime of hurting an animal.
There should be harder sentences for convicted accused. If there is no hard punishment then people do not learn, these people that are cruel to animals grow up to be murders. This is a proven fact and is not ok in our society!
People should not turn their head or pretend that they did not hear that this is going on. Please you are one person and you can make a difference.
Save an animal's life today, sign on behalf of your love.
An Enviroment camp at Gilwell Park, Australia.
I'm just asking for help to get people to understand that there are endangered animals and some you don't even think of.
260. Stop Animal Abuse
I feel that animal abuse and neglect should stop. Please sign this to stop animal abuse and neglect as well. Helpless animals get killed daily from abuse, or people stop feeding their animals, which also kills them. I feel that animals have got to stop dieing for no reason.
Old age, natural causes, we can't control those. But we can help prevent animal abuse and neglect, with your help. Please help.
In making neutering mandatory it should reduce the amount of unwanted animals that are abused, neglected, euthanized, or dying of preventable diseases each year.
I would like to make the rights of animals so aware that the government of any country would finally see how important and influential the lives of the animals in the community are to the world.
Animals cannot defend themselves. They do not have a choice in whether or not they live or die. Just because humans may be bigger and more in control, doesn't mean we have to treat them so poorly and hurt them and abuse them! Animals have always been fair and loving companions to the human race and this is how we thank them.
Drop off cages. Drop off cages where we put animals to die. Whatever did they do to deserve this kind of treatment? Sure, I will say that sometimes animals need to be taken care of for threatening or hurting a few people, but that's no excuse. These animals thrown into these cages and boxes are abused and literally tortured until they die. They aren't given any food, water, or love of any kind. How would you like it if someone did this to you?
Dolphin slaughtering. I have always had a love for the ocean animals ever since I was a little kid, and it hasn't change in the least to this day. I've only grown even more concerned for their safety and lives. Dolphins are being senselessly killed for various disgusting and inhumane reasons. They are so intelligent! Why kill them? I don't understand. Dolphins have never harmed the human race, only helped. I know all of you have heard of the many many cases of people lost at sea. Who was it that saved them? Huh? Who? That's right. Dolphins stuck around until help came for the human lost. They even protect humans from sharks when necessary. And we kill them.
The tigers! The tigers have been shrunk in numbers by thousands! And it's so obviously true! And yet, we do nothing. Tigers are so beautiful, so unique. They are being killed for "Medical Reasons", whatever the hell gave them the idea that killing to better humans is a good thing? It isn't even helping the humans! What on earth is going on? Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the world?
There are so many other issues that affect the world. How could no one see that whatever we do in the world, affects the entire world as a whole? Whatever we do to the animals and the environment, only bounces back to smack us in the face.
I'm sorry if I've wasted your time by reading this, but I feel it's an issue that's very important and needs some attention. You have no idea how happy it would make me if you all signed this. I would be extatic if one person signed one petition! Copy and paste it into another bulletin! Do something! Everyone needs to be aware of all this and more!
Thank you for listening!
Highway and road users should not have to worry about wandering livestock while driving on the road - and if an accident does happen as a result, the owner of the livestock should be held responsible.
The rule in Searle v Wallbank is a relic of the past which currently absolves owners of livestock from responsibility for damage caused - and it should no longer apply in today's society of fast moving cars and multi-lane highways.
The rule has been abolished in England (its jurisdiction of origin), New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria and Tasmania for almost 30 years!
Livestock on roadways cause accidents which usually result in property damage and sometimes injury.
Queenslanders should not have to pay with their lives and/or their pocketbooks because someone left a gate open.
Many countries such as Canada and Norway "enjoy" killing seals as a sport.
In Canada, the season for the commercial hunt of harp seal is from November 15 to May 15. The majority of sealing, however, occurs in late March in The Gulf of St. Lawrence, and during the first or second week of April off Newfoundland, in an area known as "The Front". This peak spring period is generally what is referred to as the "Canadian Seal Hunt".
In 2006, the St. Lawrence seal hunt officially started on March 25. This date was initially uncertain, due to thin ice conditions caused by the year's milder temperatures.
In 2003, the three-year harp seal quota granted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans was increased to a maximum of 975,000 animals, with a maximum of 350,000 animals in any two consecutive years. In 2006, 325,000 harp seals, as well as 10,000 hooded seals and 10,400 grey seals will be killed. An additional 10,000 animals are allocated for hunting by Aboriginal peoples.
The Canadian seal hunt is monitored by the Canadian government and animal rights groups. However, although approximately 70% of Canadian seals killed are killed on "The Front", the vast majority of private monitors focus on the St. Lawrence hunt, due to its more convenient location.

Why people torture and experiment on animals? We think it helps us, when it does just the opposite of that. Many animals are being tortured and killed for our silly items, and it does nothing… in fact, it’s bad for us as well as them, for humans get sick and some die from items that were even tested on animals. A food or medicine that gives health to an animal just might be poison to a human, and it might not, You can’t trust it.
The truth is that animal tests teach us next to nothing about the health of humans because other species react differently. They absorb, metabolize, and eliminate substances differently than humans do. Testing on animals isn't just unreliable, it's also unnecessary. There are more effective, and often, less expensive, non-animal alternatives that can be used instead. ---Peta.org
You may go shopping and be looking for an animal-tested shampoo so you can use it on your dog or cat, but that shampoo probably wasn’t tested on a dog or cat… so that doesn’t work either.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, and the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming… America. The land of the free and the home of the brave! If America is so free, why is there animals locked up in cages just to get their mouths stuffed with the new ultra-whitening toothpaste, or to get smothered in the great aqua-colored, super soft baby powder that just came out?
Face it. Animal experimenting does absolutely nothing but hurt animals and people. Cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, mice, hamsters, they’re all bred and raised to be experimented on.
SAVE THE ANIMALS.
STOP THE EXPERIMENTING.

I feel it is wrong to treat animals with abuse their whole lives, and slaughter them.
Animals should at least get to live a good life before being slaughtered.

Doctors and research scientists are increasingly speaking out against animal testing. All animals are different, so they feel the results from animals can't be applied to humans, and it is dangerous for human patients if we try to do so.
In 1997 Labour came to power in the UK. One of their pre-election pledges was to hold an historic investigation into the medical relevance and safety for human patients of using animal experiments.
The medical relevance of animal testing has come under more doubt since then, but they have still refused to honour the pledge.
Among the developments in that time were:
§ 83% of doctors, in an independent poll, supported the idea of an independent evaluation.
§ A 2004 paper in the British Medical Journal concluded that "the contribution of animal studies to clinical medicine requires urgent formal evaluation."
§ Scientifically evaluated cell culture tests have been discovered to be 80-85% accurate: easily more accurate than animal testing.
§ Adverse drug reactions have been estimated to be our fourth leading cause of death: killing over 10,000 people a year in the UK and costing the NHS £466 million, according to medical journal studies. All drugs contributing to this have passed tests on animals.
An Early Day Motion raised by a concerned MP requesting such an inquiry attracted the support of hundreds of MPs across the parties and was among the 1% most popular EDMs. The MP consulted with doctor's group Europeans For Medical Progress (see www.curedisease.net) who actively supported the move.

A few states still euthanize animals routinely using the gas chamber.
Using the gas chamber is not humane, it is merely a method of mass destruction and torture as seen in Hitler's Germany.
We see it as barbaric, as well as deem it cruel and unusual punishment when executing prisoners. Why then is it humane to execute innocent animals?
Please think about you being in their position and stop this barbaric means of euthanasia in North Carolina.

I feel privileged to be the proud owner of a horse and cat. As a North Dakota pet owner, I've made the necessary commitment to provide adequate food, water, shelter, exercise, affection and attention for my pets. I feel that every person who makes the commitment to own a pet should accept the responsibilities that go along with that ownership.
Recently, a woman named Kim Lester from Grenora was charged with two counts of maltreatment of animals, both Class A misdemeanors. Only two counts - even though, according to an article that ran in the Williston Herald, authorities found eight horse carcasses and three dog carcasses in a pasture on the property.
Horses were so hungry they were eating their own feces. Many of the 84 horses, 50 dogs and 30 birds - turkeys and chickens - were confined to a very small space on the 330 acres of property, and had not received food or water for several days. Animal carcasses littered the ground. Chickens drank moldy water. See below.
Deputies uncover dead, neglected animals

Animal carcasses littered the ground.
Horses were so hungry they were eating their own feces.
Dogs were chained up without food or water.
Authorities discovered the grisly scene this week in rural Grenora and arrested a woman for mistreating animals.
Kim Lester, 41, was released on 10 percent cash to apply toward $2,000 bond Friday on two counts of maltreatment of animals, both Class A misdemeanors.
Lester appeared Friday with her attorney Shane Peterson before Northwest District Judge Gerald Rustad on allegations of mistreatment of numerous horses, livestock and dogs on a farmstead about six miles southwest of Grenora.
According to a report released by the Williams County Sheriff's Office, many of the 84 horses, 50 dogs and 30 birds - turkeys and chickens - were confined to a very small space on the 330 acres of property, and had not received food or water for several days.
Rustad ordered Lester to remove all animals from her property within five days, and to notify law enforcement what is being done with the animals and where they are being placed. She must make arrangements for the animals' proper care.
According Williams County Deputy Verlan Kvande, who headed the investigation, 45 livestock, including horses and cows, were penned into a 50-by-60-foot area, and numerous dogs were staked out throughout the property, chained up without food or water or were confined in small animal carriers in other buildings on the farmstead. The other 40 livestock animals were found in an overgrazed pasture.
"There was one 8-by-10-foot shed with the doors and windows closed that had no ventilation," Kvande said. "It had half a dozen chickens and eight dogs in pet carrier cages. There was a horrendous smell of defecation, urination and chickens. There was no food or water for the dogs. There was some water for the chickens, but it was really moldy .... The smell was overpowering."
After receiving numerous reports about conditions of the farmstead from concerned citizens, authorities investigated and found enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant for the farm site.
"There were complaints of dead animals in the pasture and mistreatment of animals," said Kvande.
Executing the search warrant on Thursday, Williams County Sheriff deputies and North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents who investigated the scene reported finding eight horse carcasses and three dog carcasses in a pasture on the property.
Several animals were found to be in a small pen and unable to move around, or placed in small carriers in three structures on the property.
"A veterinarian who accompanied authorities in the investigation confirmed that there was evidence of neglect and malnourishment of the animals, and it was an extended ongoing pattern," said Lt. Earl Innis of the Williams County Sheriff's Office.
Animals also showed signs of possible staff infection, ringworm and sores, said the veterinarian.
Williams County State's Attorney Nicole Foster, who is prosecuting the case, described the farmstead and conditions of the animals a public health hazard.
"The horses were so hungry, they were eating their own feces," said Deputy Verlan Kvande, who headed the probe. "They had automated watering systems, but they had not been turned on."
During the investigation of the property, deputies and law officers tended to the animals, said Innis. They remained on the scene for over three hours.
Lester was also ordered not to board or possess animals while the court case continues, and the court order also includes a search clause of Lester's property that allows authorities to check for other animals.
"To my knowledge, she has made contacts with humane societies around the state to find shelter for the animals," Kvande said.
If convicted, Lester could face a maximum sentence of two years in prison and $4,000 in fines.
