Alto al envenenamiento y quema de animales en la ciudad capital de Campeche en México

En la víspera de la convención nacional de líderes de zoonosis, amanecieron muertos más de 100 perros, gatos, tlacuaches, etc., la gran mayoría de los perros envenenados y quemados eran alimentados, medicados y esterilizados por personas comprometidas con la causa animal que con recursos propios sufragan estos gastos y los mantienen de manera comunal en la calle ante la falta de cultura de adopción; fueron ellos los que se dieron cuenta y empezaron a indagar y encontraron cubetas de metal con restos de carne molida envenenada. Han muerto ya más de 500 animales entre perros, gatos, etc., y hasta ahora ninguna autoridad se ha pronunciado. Se han metido varías demandas ante él área correspondiente solicitando dar con el responsable así como la revisión de cámaras pero aún no se sabe nada. Asusta a la ciudadanía esta situación que se está saliendo de control ya que cada día aparecen mas animales muertos incluidas mascotas que salieron con correa a caminar al malecón con su propietarios por lo que se teme pueda afectar a niños ya que son áreas abiertas al público. Existen muy pocas personas ayudando a resguardar a los sobrevivientes y la situación los ha sobrepasado por lo que se lanza esta petición de ayuda para solicitar  al Gobernador del Estado girar instrucciones para dar con el o los Responsables y parar esta masacre antes de que sea demasiado tarde.

Animal Planet - Help Us Stop The Illegal Dog Meat Trade in South Korea, China and Vietnam

Each of us has a choice, to play the silent witness, act as an accomplice, or to choose every day to act and defend the right to life that is given to all sentient beings. The latter is the stance we choose to take, and we ask that you please stand with us. South Korea continues to support and permit a horrific and illegal dog and cat meat trade that subjects millions of animals to abuse, torture and murder on a daily basis. While animal protection laws have been put in place to prohibit these practices, the government and its law enforcement do nothing to prevent the continued butchering and sales of these animals. All we see are muzzled mouths, tied up feet, blinded eyes, and the same sad look which is fixed and doesn’t change, when the darkness comes and the smell of blood fills the air. Later we will know that the blood of those poor animals was on our hands, and those millions of dogs and cats locked in cages were waiting for us to give a hand, and we were their last resort.  We know that Animal Planet has inspired billions of people everywhere with its knowledge of science and culture. We believe that you can be a voice for these poor animals who have none; we are holding the fate of these animals between our hands and giving it to you - let's make a new history. An age of humanity and tolerance; let's win this battle against such dark forces, giving these beautiful creatures their right to live. We hope that you'll accept to show people - even in a short movie - some of what's happening to dogs and cats in Asia , and how they are sold there as food . Martin Luther King said once that: “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

Ayuda a salvar a los caballos salvajes de Vieques, Puerto Rico!!!

El problema:  En Vieques, PR, hay caballos salvajes sin control de población. Al no tener control poblacionales hay demaciados caballos salvajes para la isla soportar. Lo que hace esto es que los caballos no tienen bastante comida para todos, la gente choca contra ellos y eso les puede causar peligro a los humanos tanto como a los caballos. No va a ver bastante espacio para todos en el futuro y no se sabe lo que va a pasar entonces.  Solución:  Si tenemos bastantes recursos como terreno, donaciones de; dinero, alimento de caballo, heno, cosas para construir, herramientas y voluntarios. Podríamos convertir este sueño de bajar la población bastante para todos estar felices y asalvo, en realidad.  Por qué:  Mi nombre es Julia y tengo 15 años. Toda mi vida he sido facinada por los caballos. Tengo un caballo llamado Spartan. Voy a estudiar veterinaria especializada en animales de granja, equinos y reptiles. Sé como se escucha, una niña diciendoles que va a ser veterinaria como dicen todas las niñas chiquitas y que manden dinero por algo que podría o no podría pasar. Pero yo no les estoy pidiendo a nadie por dinero, de hecho, no manden dinero hasta que yo habra la fundación por favor. Solo les pido que firmen para ayudar a todos los caballos que necesitan nuestra ayuda. Y les aseguro algo, cuando yo quiero lograr algo, pasa, porque soy dedicada a mi pasión, ideas y mis logros. Tengo planes en mano incluyendo costos aproximados por mes, dibujos del potrero y lista de cosas necesitadas de dimero a cosas de construcción. Para este tipo de información me podrían contactar al e-mail, spartanfoundationvpr@gmail.com Gracias por leer, espero ver su firma.

End Poaching!

  Stop Poaching During summer, I went to South Africa, it was beautiful, the sea was amazing, we saw whales in the ocean and animals in the safari, we saw cheetahs, leopards, lions but one of the animals we didn’t see, was the black rhino, the reason we didn’t see it was because they are a critically endangered because they are being poached for their horns. Poaching is when you illegally kill an animals for its body parts, then many people take their valuable body parts and sell them on the black market or dark web for a great deal of money. South Africa’s problem is not pollution or over population, it is poaching. Poaching has become a big problem in South Africa and many other places. Animals are being poached because of their horns tusks or fur. Many animals are endangered due to poaching. Stopping poaching is not as easy as it seems. In 2011, 1 out of 12 elephants were killed by poachers, and from 2010 to 2011, 100,000 elephants were killed due to poaching in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Elephants are the most commonly poached animal, they are poached for their Ivory, which is a very durable and valuable item. But even efforts from non-profit groups such as the anti-poaching foundation, poaching still continues. I think that people should stop poaching these animals because if they want to continue seeing them majestic animals, you should help stop poaching, because if you don't, they will go extinct, and you'll never see them again. There are three ways people are using to try to stop ivory trade, firstly, people are 3D printing the exact same product, if there are lots of 3D printed ivory, then the demand for ivory would decrease and people would not risk their lives to kill rhinos or elephants for Ivory. Secondly, in South Africa, some Rhinos are fitted with GPS and thirdly, a special ink is injected into their horns. This ruins the horns medical use and makes illegal ivory easy to spot. I think that poaching is something that must be stopped and is still is affecting our world, poachers killing these innocent animals just for money. Do you think that it is really worth it? Ending an animal’s for it’s body parts, then selling them, is it worth a life? NO! In conclusion, poaching cannot be tolerated anywhere and shall be stopped onceand for all. To help out, please sign my petition or you can also donate to wildlife organizations and spread the word, volunteer with the with the International Anti-poaching Foundation and learn more about anti-poaching techniques.
