.@DefraGovUK: "BAN THE BOLT" ABOLISH THE USE OF THE CAPTIVE BOLT GUN TO DESTROY GREYHOUNDS IN THE UK.

C.A.G.E.D North West 'Ban the Bolt' Campaign   [Petition Supported by Ricky Gervais and Jane Fallon] Each year an estimated 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are 'unaccounted' for -- puppies that don’t make the grade, dogs that sustain injuries, are pregnant or unable to find homes, most are less than five years old.Many of these dogs are disposed of in the most 'economical' way - by bolt gun. Under existing UK legislation, any person can use a bolt gun to destroy a greyhound, if they are the legal owner. Attempted destruction of greyhounds by bolt has resulted in innocent dogs being left to suffer in agony for hours, before being found and taken to a veterinary surgery to be finally put to sleep by lethal injection.These dogs should at the very least be entitled to a humane death. Destruction of greyhounds should only be performed by use of intravenous euthanasia, administered by qualified veterinary surgeons. Following the controversial use of bolt guns by RSPCA inspectors a few years ago, the RSPCA requested the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) comment on their review of its 2004 euthanasia rules and guidelines. In April 2010 the RCVS announced that use of the captive bolt guns on dogs was inappropriate.Defra have the power to end this cruel practice so we are calling on them to immediately abolish the use of captive bolt guns to destroy greyhounds in the UK.For more information please click on the links below to read about Milton the greyhound and use of bolt gun in destruction. http://www.cagednw.co.uk/ban-the-bolt.html  http://www.cagednw.co.uk/greyhound-disposal.html http://www.greytexploitations.com/resources-and-reports/a-license-to-kill                http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-396015/The-killing-fieldsof-10-000-greyhounds-old-race.html

Bring Bleue Back! Alone, Afraid, UNHEARD! Give him the voice he doesn’t have!

Hi Everyone this is Bleue my 6 year old Stafford shire Bull Terrier who was Mercilessly Seized from me on 01/07/2018 under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 section 5 (2) by Warrant! Due to A pair of Neighbors where i live calling Nottinghamshire police back in March 2018 accusing him of biting and being Dangerous and a ‘Type’ dog in the UK. However Stafford shire bull terriers are not a banned breed and he shouldn't of been taken!  On this particular morning Bleue for the first time ever had ran out into our hall when we were leaving out.  A hall which I share with them neighbours and as myself and daughter were trying to get him back into our home this male appeared from the house next door, a male I had never seen before, a male i didnt even know was living at this property with the woman! all i did was ask him to close the door while we got the dog back in to our apartment and thats when the abuse and shouting started towards me and my child, I was shocked how vile he was all because i asked him to close his door for a min. The man refused on every occasion i had asked telling me 'dont F*****g tell me what to do' and opened his door more! The dog then ran into her house and thats when bleue was kicked and man handled in an unprovoked attack on him from the male aggressor neighbour! Bleue jumped at the male in shock after being kicked to the ground by him and thats when the accusations started telling me i have a dangerous dog, how he was going to call police on me, saying bleue bit him! I asked what seemed a million times to show me his phantom Injury to which he refused telling me he wasnt going to 'whip out his F*****g leg for me' He lied and said his jeans had been ripped, I Scanned his jeans and there were no tears no rips in his jeans!  His girlfriend told police in her statement under Oath that she NEVER saw bleue bite, but now shes changed her Mind and lied to my home management claiming Blue did Bite!! The Contradiction and Lies Are wrong on so many levels! Now his Fate of being potentially Destroyed is now looming on myself and my daughter who is utterly distraught! There is a lot to the story including discrimination, aggression and Intimidation directed at me and Q by the male neighbour which has been completely neglected by the Police officer i reported this to in March 2018!  The same officer who admitted he had never dealt with a dog case ever and didn't know the ins and outs of what happens! The same officer who Ignored every notification he got from the control room advising i had called for days and days when i was calling in to see if my dog was alive after they had taken him. The same officer who caught attitude on the phone with me when he had to call me back because i raised a complaint and told me 'he couldn't give me weekly and daily updates on the welfare of my dog who is locked up as it has nothing to do with him now he's been seized!  and advised that me calling in to find out if bleue is ok 'isn't going to help my case'!!!! The same officer who promised to get me in for a statement about the discrimination etc directed at me and my child but instead neglected my concerns!! Im actually Disgusted!  But for now i will start with a call of help and support in helping me get my Beloved Pet back! I am asking for everybody to sign this petition in helping me successfully getting my Beautiful Boy Home safe and sound he has been wrongly accused and seized from us and we dont know where his life lies now.  I was lied to and misled when Bleue was seized and was told categorically by the Dog officer this is a Minor Case and blue would be returned home after 3 days and he didn't understand why since March 2018 my dog was being seized in July 2018!  Bleue is still in Undisclosed Kennels away from the love and comfort he has always had from me, my daughter and family and friends at home. Our hearts are actually hurting..  I want to use this platform to begin what is going to be a tough journey ahead of me in successfully proving that he is a beautiful boy and family member and is not a danger to society and all dogs lives Matter!  Its going to be blood sweat and tears however this sad situation will raise awareness to a number of issues that sadly not only myself is having to deal with right now but a lot of dog owners alike! My dog is basically sitting on death row and i have no clue where his life lies! He is in an undisclosed location! I cannot see him! He will be scared and prob not attended to properly while he is locked up! He doesnt deserve this and neither do we!  I Demand Justice and I demand my dog is returned home to me. My dog is not Dangerous he is full of Love and Loyalty and His Life Matters, his Voice which cannot be heard matters and will be heard by myself and any support i can kindly get from the Public. Please Sign and Share and Please help me in having the safe return of my Dog back home where he belongs. He is not just a Dog he is my Family and my Child and this is breaking our heart to think he could be destroyed under BSL law due to Wrongful accusation, there has been a number of discrepancies on the authority's and accusers side and Neglect in helping me and my 13 year old daughter and had our beautiful Dog taken away in the Process! THIS SHOULDNT BE ALLOWED!  Please Help in any way you can. I demand for Blues Release and safe return Home. Bleues Life Matters! All dogs lives Matter! Please support me with this!
