Daily Voice : Stop the Yulin dog slaughter
« Reply #288 on: April 19, 2014, 01:00:15 AM »
Stop the Yulin dog slaughter

I have a Border Collie, Colin and he turns seven today. He is loved and a family member. I make this petition for him as a birthday gift. I want to think of all the dogs who have not that luck to live in a family who love them and treat them well. There are still many countries where dogs are being tortured and cruely killed. In Yulin/China, on the 21 of Juin this year again thousands of dogs will be slaughtered to end up on Chinese plates. Du Yufeng, founder of the Guangyuan Boai Animal center, has been fighting for years to stop this massacre and save dogs. Please sign this petition and protest with me against this ritual and support Du Yufeng's devotion to save dogs. Please don't look away. Together we can make a change.

Pledge to Be More Mindful About Your Food!

So many of us want to live healthier lives. At the very root of that goal is the food that we eat. It's time we all pledged to change our lives by being more mindful of the food that we put into our bodies.


 
 This pledge means:

     
  • Eating more natural and organic foods

  •  
  • Avoiding genetically modified foods and foods produced with hormones, pesticides, antibiotics and preservatives

  •  
  • Eating foods rich in fiber, protein, vitamins, antioxidants and healthy fats

  •  
  • Eating leaner meats and going meat-free some days

  •  
  • Always adding more fruits and vegetables to our diets

  •  
  • Reducing sodium, sugar and unhealthy fats



 
 Abe's Market can help. Abe's Market is the online marketplace for great natural products. We know that when you feel good about what you're eating, you feel more connected to yourself and to the world around you. And that's the first step toward real change.

Change the Political Conversation on Climate Change

We canâ??t afford to keep ignoring the impact of climate change.



A recent poll shows that only 57 percent of Americans believe climate change is a result of human activityâ??despite overwhelming scientific evidence. Itâ??s time we take action and change the conversation.



NextGen Climate is building a national grassroots army to bring climate change to the forefront of American politicsâ?? and we want you to be a part of it.



Our mission is to avert climate disaster and preserve American prosperity. At every level of government, we are committed to supporting candidates, elected officials and policymakers that will take bold action on climate changeâ??and to exposing those who deny reality and cater to special interests.



Take a stand and help change the conversation.

Tell USFWS to Take Emergency Action to Rescue the Mexican Gray Wolf!

The Mexican gray wolf, a distinct subspecies of the gray wolf, once roamed throughout Mexico and the Southwestern United States. Today the global population of these animals is tiny -- roughly 75 individuals in the wild, and another 300 in captivity.


Unless the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) takes immediate and dramatic action, this magnificent animal could no longer exist in the wild.

Daily Voice : Stop calf-roping at The Calgary Stampede
« Reply #292 on: April 23, 2014, 01:00:32 AM »
Stop calf-roping at The Calgary Stampede

It’s time to ban calf-roping at the Calgary Stampede


 

The Calgary Stampede, like all rodeos, is a cruel spectacle of animal abuse. Fear, pain and stress are used to coerce animals into performing for the entertainment of human beings – a barbaric concept. Yet here in Canada, in the 21st century, we offer this as a tourist attraction and as a symbol of our culture.


 

Perhaps the most inhumane of all rodeo events, calf-roping remains a big part of the Stampede. The Vancouver Humane Society is calling for a ban on calf-roping at rodeos across Canada and is asking the Calgary Stampede to show the way by dropping this event. In 2009 and 2010, VHS’s campaign against calf-roping drew massive public and media attention. Now it’s time for the Stampede to listen to Canadians who oppose abusing animals for entertainment.


 



 What is calf-roping?


 

Calf-roping, also known as tie-down roping (rodeo promoters changed the name to make it more palatable to the public), is probably the least popular rodeo event, even among avid rodeo fans. There is often a gasp from the crowds when the calf, just three to four months old, is brought to a sudden, jerking halt at the end of the rope.


 

The event starts with the calf contained in a steel-barred “chute” at the side of the arena. The calf is goaded, prodded and often has its tail twisted to ensure it will burst out of the chute at full speed (up to 27 miles per hour). The terrified calf is then chased by a mounted rider who must lasso the calf, jump of his horse, pick up the calf, slam it to the ground and tie three of its feet together. The event is timed and the rider who does it fastest wins.


 

Calves are sometimes injured or killed because of the sudden physical impact of the roping. The time pressure of the event and the prize money at stake can lead to poor roping, harsh handling and mistakes by riders – all of which put the calf at risk of injury. But it is not just the risk of injury that is the problem with calf-roping. It’s the fear.


 




 The cruelty of fear


 

All cattle are “prey” animals and research has shown they are particularly sensitive to fear. Dr. Temple Grandin, the distinguished animal behaviourist, has written that fear is “so bad” for animals it can be worse than pain. There can be little doubt that a three-month-old calf, goaded and chased into an arena with a shouting crowd is suffering even before the rope pulls him off his feet. How can tormenting an animal in this way be acceptable as entertainment? Treating a dog this way would result in cruelty charges. Sadly, farm animals in Canada have no such legal protection – apparently even when they are used for mere entertainment.


 

The myth of rodeo’s old west heritage


 

Rodeo promoters will say that calf-roping and other rodeo events are part of the culture of the old west. But when real cowboys roped calves on the range there was no pressure from a stopwatch or big prize money. It was done as gently as possible to ensure the animal was not injured. The myth of rodeo’s old west “heritage” has been used with other events. Real cowboys did not ride bulls (Why would they?) or wrestle steers (invented for rodeo in the 1930s) or have chuckwagon races (invented for rodeo in 1923). Rodeo has almost nothing to do with the culture of the old west. It is merely sensational entertainment – and it causes animals to suffer for the most trivial of purposes.

Daily Voice : Justice for Max the Dog - Shot by Police in Hawthorne, CA

Justice for Max the Dog - Shot by Police in Hawthorne, CA

A viral video uploaded on June 30th, 2013 shows a Hawthorne, California police officer fatally shooting a Rottweiler named Max as he ran away. The dog's owner, Leon Rosby, was being arrested after video-recording a standoff between police and armed robbers. Rosby had been walking his dog at the time of the standoff. As he was arrested, Rosby put Max in his car. When the police handcuffed Rosby, Max jumped out of the window to defend his owner. The police shot the dog four times. The video shows Max writhing and whimpering on the ground before he died.


Police have a bad habit of thoughtlessly shooting dogs, especially during drug raids. Another bad police habit is arresting and beating citizens who record police actions. This violates freedom of the press as guaranteed in the First Amendment. It is unjust and cruel how Max was killed without the officer thinking twice.


Please sign this petition if you want to bring justice for Max and teach police officers that they are public servants, NOT our masters.

Ban Unsafe And Inhumane Horse Transport In Double Deck Trailers !

Hauling horses in double deck trailers designed for cattle and hogs is dangerous and inhumane ! The 71" height does not allow enough headroom for horses. They travel long distances in cramped headquarters. Their higher center of gravity when loaded with horses makes them unstable and prone to tipping over. This has resulted in many tragic accidents in which horses have been killed and people's lives put in jeopardy as the result of highway hazards. 


The USDA has banned the use of double deck trailers for transport of horses for slaughter. The Horse Transportation Safety Act (S.1459) would extend this prohibition on the use of double decks to transport horses for any reason. Please sign this to urge your Senator to co-sponsor S.1459 to amend Title 49, United States Code, to prohibit the transport of horses in interstate commerce in a motor vehicle containing two or more stacked levels.

US Navy: Don't Use Dolphins in War Drills!

A spokesman for the US Navy's marine mammals program reportedly said that 20 trained dolphins and 10 trained sea lions will be flown to the Black Sea to take part in war games. 


As part of the program, the dolphins and sea lions will test special armor and hunt for mines and military divers.


The long flight will be extremely expensive and stressful for these animals, and puts their health at risk. Obviously, the war games they're planned to participate in are also very risky. 


The Navy should not take advantage of these animals' intelligence for military advantage. Dolphins and sea lions play no part in causing the conflicts that start wars, and should not be used as playing pieces in war efforts. Please sign the petition to urge the US Navy to discontinue any plans to use dolphins in war drills!
