A dear friend sent me this video…it says it all really.

Canada continues to import Dog/Cat fur products from China….this must end.  Enough blood is on the hands of Canada, between the horrific continued Seal Slaughter (Canada negotiating deal with China for seal products which resulted in Animal Welfare protests by some Chinese citizens);  Canada imports US mustangs into this country for slaughter in Canadian death houses;  dog breeder in Canada breeds beagles to send to research labs, Quebec puppy mills raided, 100’s of dogs rescued and put down;  kitten mills thrive, wild horses in Alberta being murdered;  retired race horses going to Quebec slaughter houses;  not to mention sport hunting;  not to mention Factory Farm animals being burned alive due to failure to ensure safety measures;  dogs/cats being abandoned, tortured, discarded like trash…..

Enough is enough!!  http://youtu.be/E2rjXbxi_gk

Actions Speak Louder than Words

Remember, fur belongs to the animal wearing it, it looks far better on them than as a collar or cuff on some coat, glove or boot.  The new fake furs are beautiful, cheaper and take less care.

Photographs are life long trophies, reminders of having witnessed the animal in the wild, the majesty of their freedom…..a head stuck on the wall does not.

Stroking ones ego at the cost of a life is unforgivable.

       How does that saying go? 

“Talk is Cheap”.

       Well for at least one Province int this country, Action Speaks Louder than words!!!!

We are all aware of the horrific brutality inflicted on the 100 sled dogs in Whistler, B.C.  These dogs, faithful money making servants were summarily shot and in some cases had their throats brutally slashed.  Why, because the economy had taken a decline and the owner and operator of this particular business felt the animals were of no more use.  This case only came to light when the individual who did not say NO when told by the owner to kill these beautiful faithful dogs, applied to Workers Compensation claiming he was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

        The province of British Columbia stepped up, and toughened their Animal Protection Laws.

Koodoos.

        Now for the second year in a row, B.C. has approved and made this Proclamation in honor of those 100 Whistler dogs.

WHEREAS The Province of British Columbia recognizes that the health, safety and well being of all animals is vital, and
WHEREAS The Province of British Columbia leads the country with the toughest penalties for anyone proven responsible for harming an animal, and
WHEREAS The Province of British Columbia believes that the prevention of cruelty to animals is a matter of humanity and not just a matter of legislation, and
WHEREAS by working together and sharing information on how to prevent, recognize, and report signs of animal abuse, we can help protect all animals from abuse and neglect, and
WHEREAS Our Lieutenant Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, has been pleased to enact Order in Council 903 on October 11, 2002;
NOW KNOW YE THAT we do by these presents proclaim and declare that April 23, 2012 shall be known as
“ANIMAL ABUSE PREVENTION DAY”
(in honour of the lost lives of 100 sled dogs on April 23, 2010)
in the Province of British Columbia.
The Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Alberta has also Stepped UP and have made their own Proclamation: double click picture to enlarge for easier reading.

Having fought so hard myself for over three years for animal protection laws within the NWT, there remains a great deal yet to be done.  The new NWT Dog Act contains a potentially deadly loophole which MLA and now Minister David Ramsay is quoted as describing “big enough to drive a truck through”.  The new NWT Dog Act pertains solely to dogs period and does not protect any other domestic pet. Not the Comprehensive Animal Protection Act that I fought so hard for.  It must be noted that the motion did pass in the Legislative Assembly that the Territorial Government is to keep working forward to enact Comprehensive Animal Protection which already exists across the rest of Canada.

A number of years ago, due to a horrific incident involving many dogs in the Yukon, the Yukon chose to strengthen their own Animal Protection Legislation.  Now with the news that a well known Yukon Musher is planning to ACT in a proactive manner to toughen protection of Sled Dogs in the Yukon, it is evident that perhaps the new Yukon Legislation of a few years ago was not strong enough.

Mr. Frank Tuner was interviewed : sleddogcentral.com/interviews/turr

 Obviously Mr. Turner also believes that

Actions Speak Louder than Words.

Clearly animal cruelty is and will remain an International focus, on so many levels one cannot even fathom.  Every second of every single day, an animal is being horrifically neglected, abused and exploited at the hands of a human.  Says a lot about the human species does it not?  From the starving neglected dogs left on chains, animals tortured and butchered for the sheer sick pleasure that some even sicker individual gets out of inflicting such pain, to the dog fighting rings that provide an illegal income to the cruel and greedy, the puppy and kitten mills run by the totally insensitive mass breeders, to those breeders whose sole goal is to make money from research companies, to the Factory Farm Animals, Battery Hens and roadside zoos that fail to provide proper care and the necessities of life to the animals that they derive income from.

The list goes on and on.  I will not even cite other instances such as those that take place in China or on the frozen coasts of Canada.

A challenge to the rest of Canada, to the remaining Provinces and Territories across this vast and magnificent land is being made right now.

Follow the lead of British Columbia!!! 

Put forward your own Provincial and Territorial Proclamation in honor and memory of the thousands of animals brutalized every day,

the thousands of animals that die in shelters because they have been discarded by others!!!!

In honor of the innocent lives taken because existing Municipal, Provincial and Federal Legislation is not

tough enough, does not do enough to end the suffering and to bring those responsible to Justice.

Pictures received from the Beaufort Delta Regional SPCA in Inuvik, NT.  No charges laid, no animals survived.

     It is Time!!!

Zero Tolerance to Animal Cruelty across Every Municipality, Every Province, Every Territory in Canada!!!

Actions Speak Louder than Words!!!

80,000 More Animals To Die For EPA’s Same Old Chemical Screens

http://www.kinshipcircle.org/letter_library/letter_new3.asp?LetterID=1917

Can Someone Introduce The Environmental Protection Agency To 21st Century Science?

EPA has invested millions in its ANIMAL-FREE Computational Toxicology Research Program, ToxCast™, for development of “new and innovative methods.” EPA recognizes “quantitative high-throughput screening (qHTS) assays” as key in the evaluation of toxic pathways. It provides “Data Sets & Published Research” to support non-animal assays. ToxCast™ Factsheet

So why will EPA torture and kill 80,000 animals over a span of years for its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP)? The agency has rejected 90 percent of pesticide company requests to use in vitro tests in place of animals.

Action Alert: Please oppose plans to breed beagles for vivisection (UK)

BACKGROUND:

Marshall Bioresourses, in North Rose, located between Syracuse and Rochester, N.Y., was shipping “beagles” out of Montreal (entering Canada via Lacolle and Brockville border points) via Air Canada to Paris and other points in Europe until Air Canada dropped the contract a few years ago as the result of passenger complaints.

If you have ANY info regarding the current airline and/or cargo carrier shipping beagles out of Canada, please contact: ariellang@yahoo.ca

THANKS SUSANNA FOR THE HEADS UP ON THIS!!!

Vivisecton breeder, MARSHALL, wants to open four more facilities in the UK:

Marshall’s purchased UK vivisection breeder B&K Universal (near Hull) a few years ago. It submitted a planning application to construct four units/breeding facilities to breed BEAGLES for animal testing. If permission is granted, many thousands of purpose-bred beagles will be sent to labs.

Please contact East Riding of Yorkshire Council and ask that the planning application be refused. The Planning Application Number is 11/01324/STPLF. The deadline is May 2nd, so please act soon.
