Help Protect The Loris

In the animal kingdom, being cute can be a curse. A prime example of this would be the Slow Loris. These cute animals are endangered due to being poached by the thousands for the pet industry. These cute little animals are nocturnal and when spotted with a flashlight, they freeze up like a deer in headlights. Unfortunately, this makes poaching trivial. Combine that with deforestation which destroys the hiding places and the Slow Loris doesn't have a chance. The older ones are ground down into a powder which locals believe can "cure" cancer. Others are boiled alive in order to extract the oil from there skin. The oil is believed to slow down aging. The fur of the Loris is used to heal wounds, the flesh to cure epilepsy, eyes are used in love potions, and the meat is reported to cure asthma and stomach problems. The cuter baby Loris is sold to the pet trade but not before their teeth are removed. Often the teeth are yanked out leading to infection. As pets, the nocturnal Loris is subjected to bright lights daily leading to stress. Their defensive behavior of putting the arms up in order to secrete a toxin is seen as "cute" leading to owners who purposely trigger the behavior. Been a primate the Loris requires specialized care, care that very few people are able to provide. This, in turn, has led to high mortality rates in the pet trade. Despite being internationally banned, the Loris is still been sold out in the open in countries such as Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. A single Loris can be sold for as much as $100 USD while the fine for selling one can range anywhere from $2- $200 USD. Clearly, the enforcement of the ban is severely lacking. Please sign and share, together we can pressure the governments of Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand to impose stricter bans and harsher enforcement of poaching.

Ban Ear Cropping and Tail Docking in Dogs

Ear cropping and tail docking in dogs is an inhumane procedure that serves no purpose other than changing the appearance of a dog. It is really forced mutilation so that makes dogs look prettier or fiercer.This practice is illegal in many countries in Europe but it has yet to be outlawed in the US, where it can still be performed by a licensed Veterinarian. More outrageous is the stance held by the American Kennel Association who encourages those procedures for dog shows. Let us learn more about each of those revolting practices. Ear Cropping:Cropped ears is a process in which the ears of certain breeds are transformed to look alert and erect. The process can only be done by a licensed veterinarian and only if the owner is dedicated to the pet’s post-op with any aftercare that is needed. Dog ear cropping is usually done whenever the pup is 8 to 10 weeks old.This procedure is always performed with general anesthesia, because both ears have many nerve endings, and without it the dog would be in extreme pain. The cropping is done by removing about two thirds of the pinna, also known as the floppy part of the ears. Ear cropping has been marred with myths such as preventing ear infections, being a standard procedure for certain breeds, or even being like spaying/neutering. Another more preposterous myth alleges that ear cropping is not painful to the animal. There is of course no evidence to substantiate those claims but we do not know for a fact that such a procedure is extremely painful for the dog and that it requires very thorough post-op care. The American Kennel Club supports ear cropping in order to maintain the standards of appearance for certain breeds, and they even claim that it protects dogs' ears from being bitten and helps them hear, for example – all unsubstantiated claims. Meanwhile, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association oppose it.   Tail Docking:Puppies' tails are docked during the first five days of life, either surgically or with a constricting band. It involves removing a portion of the tail, the length being cut off varies depending on the breed. Dogs with docked tails include Cocker Spaniels, Rottweilers, and Yorkshire Terriers. Currently 62 breeds recognized by the AKC have docked tails. Some dogs, such as the Old English Sheepdog and Australian. As with ear cropping, there are many myths associated with tail docking such as being a pain-free procedure since it is done at birth, or even that some dogs do not need their tail. Let us squash this last claim right away. The tail is not a limb but is an appendage; it is the distal section of the spinal column and comprises vertebrae, muscle, nerves and blood vessels. The muscular structure and activity are an integral part of the normal bodily shape and function, especially in the perineal region. Thus removal of the tail in an immature puppy may lead to improper development of these muscles (Canfield 1986). A relationship has also been suggested between tail docking and submissive urinary incontinence in puppies. The tail in a dog is used as a counter-balance in various locomotory activities. A dog with a tail is able to express its emotional state, assertion of social status, acceptance of a subordinate or equal position, or willingness to fight. It has been suggested that the absence of a tail may, in some instances, predispose a dog to unwarranted aggression (Wansborough 1996). Unfortunately those facts have not curtailed those practices, which have even become popular among the youth wanting their dogs to look fierce. Other than the aesthetic, a reason one may chop a dog’s ears off would be for dog fighting. If they don’t have ears or a long tail, they won't bleed as much since they won't get beaten in those areas. What is more outrageous is the fact that the media abounds with tutorial videos of DIY ear cropping and recommendations on how and when to do it. The lack of legal ramifications is producing a breed of misguided dog owners and unscrupulous pet owners who choose to mutilate their pup for their own personal gains. We need to stop them, education is not enough, it must become illegal. PLEASE SUPPORT THE AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) IN BANNING THIS PROCEDURE. DOG OWNERS WHO "MUTILATE" THEIR DOGS MUST BE PROSECUTED. Photo credit: Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Justice For The Cruel Badger Baiting in North Wales

David Thomas, 51, master at the Dwyryd Hunt in north Wales, was convicted last week at Llandudno Magistrates Court of causing unnecessary suffering to a badger by making it fight with dogs at his kennels at Cwm Bowydd Farm in Blaenau Ffestiniog - the hunt’s kennels.  Thomas was also found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to two foxes by keeping them caged close to dogs which left them terrified and further animal welfare allegations, according to local newspaper reports.  In modern times, badger baiting has come into popularity amongst blood sport fans. In badger baiting terriers are typically involved in the digging and are sent into badger setts with radio collars to locate the badgers.  The signal from the radio collar is then tracked from above and the group will dig down into the sett to locate the badgers. ​Once the badger has been captured the real horror begins. It will then be forced to fight with large, powerful dogs.  During these fights, it is not uncommon for there to be two or more dogs in the ring with the badger. Once the badger has been overpowered by the dogs it is usually either killed by the dogs or beaten to death by the offenders.  It is the strength, courage, and family loyalty of the badger that ensures it continues to be a target.   Badgers are not the only victims of badger baiting.  The dogs used in the fighting are also innocent victims. They suffer horrific injuries and are often not taken to a vet for treatment. Instead offenders either treat the dog themselves, abandon, or kill the dog if they are too badly injured and puts the owner at risk of prosecution for cruelty. Sentencing will take place on Monday, 5 February 2018 but we also demand the shutdown of Dwyryd Hunt.
