Reconsider 'Dog Ban' in local park in Yarnton

The problem I and various dog owners in Yarnton Village are faced with, is that there isn't anywhere close by that is safe, secure and suitably maintained where we're able to walk our dogs. However, there is a spacious park located in Yarnton, which could be enjoyed by all. Sadly, the Yarnton Parish Council have deemed a dog ban necessary. Therefore, dogs are not permitted on these grounds. Lynne Whitley - the Parish Clerk, advised me that the dog ban was agreed due to a petition made some time ago (I'm still waiting for clarification on when the dog ban was originally instated). The park is seldom used, apart from a few football games a week. During the other 90% of the time, it could be used by dog walkers. Is the issue dog mess? Then add more dog waste bins (there is currently one inside this park already) and according to the Parish Council, it states on their website that they have a dog warden to ensure people pick up dog mess. I can see two solutions. Either lift the dog ban and let everyone who's a part of Yarnton enjoy the local park. Or, make somewhere close by accessible to dogs and their owners. This is something I'm very passionate about and I know others will feel the same. That's why I need your help and support. Whether you're a Yarnton resident with same/similar views or just simply an animal lover, please sign this petition and spread the word. Thank you.

Petition to Responsible department: Department for Environment Food, and Rural Affairs

.@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

Petition to To the Prime minister Ramush Haradinaj, AUVK , Kosovo veterinary and food agency

Stop dogfighting in Kosovo now and close all the kennels where dogs are bred especially for dog fighting.

Summary: We request from Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, AUVK, and Kosovo Police to stop this cruel act once and for ever and to instruct all police forces to take action against the offenders and the abuse of dogs for fights.Personal story: I am starting this petition to stop the sick blood sport of dog fighting in Kosovo and to close all the dog breeding kennels Where dogs are bred especially for dog fights. Dogfights are taking place every day in Kosovo.  In Rahovec Kosovo just recently in January 2019 two dogs were forced to fight each other until one of the dogs died from bleeding injuries. I have also come across people who have made dog fighting an online business. They breed dogs especially for dogfighting and they advertise them and sell them via Facebook. The biggest one is in Prizren Kosovo Fighting dogs are kept isolated from other dogs and most people, so they spend most of their lives on short, heavy chains. The conditioning of fighting dogs may make use of a variety of legal and illegal drugs, including anabolic steroids to enhance muscle mass and encourage aggressiveness. Narcotic drugs may also be used to increase the dogs’ aggression, increase reactivity and mask pain or fear during a fight. Fighting dogs may have their ears cropped and tails docked close to their bodies. Fighters usually perform this cropping/docking themselves using crude and inhumane techniques. Dogs forced into fighting suffer terrible injuries, both from the fights and at the hands of their vicious 'owners'. Most will ultimately be killed in the ring or die soon after from their injuries. Those who can no longer fight are often brutally dispatched. This barbaric practice must be stopped. Those that take place in dog fighting are generally involved in other illegal behaviors. Dog fighting is barbaric and cannot be allowed to be part of a modern society. Instead of tolerating such cruel acts which have impacts on human minds and their willingness to accept killings of living existences, we demand the Prime Minister to adapt a law for animal protection, putting every cruelty against animals and every offence under severe punishment. Will you join me today by signin this petition to help bring dog fighters to justice? The issue: Dog fighting is barbaric and we cannot allow it to be part of modern society.Take action! Dogfighting is the worst thing to happen to dogs. It's brutal. The people who do this are disgusting and should be ashamed of what they're doing. Dogs are supposed to be loved not killed. I care about all dogs and they deserve to be treated with love and respect. Please join me by signing my petition so that all dogs in Kosova are treated with love and respect they deserve Thank you. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager    Shqip-Albanian  Ne kërkojmë nga Kryeministri Ramush Haradinaj, AVUK dhe Policia e Kosovës që ta ndalojnë këtë akt mizor një herë e përgjithmonë dhe t'i udhëzojnë të gjitha forcat e policisë që të ndërmarrin veprime kundër shkelësve dhe keqpërdorimit të qenve për luftime. Historia personale: Po e filloj këtë peticion për të ndaluar sportin e gjakut e luftimeve të qenve në Kosovë dhe për të mbyllur të gjitha kutitë e mbarështimit të qenve ku qenët rriten vetem për luftra te qenve . Luftimet e ashpra po zhvillohen çdo ditë në Kosove. Ne janar te ketij viti 2019 ne Rahovec Kosovo nje qen i pafajshem hupi jeten mizorisht duke luftuar sepse ishte detyruar te perlahet me nje qen  per qeshtje argetimi.  Unë kam hasur edhe nëpër njerëz që kanë bërë  një biznes online. Ata mbareshtojne qentë për luftime dhe  reklamohen per shitje nëpërmjet Facebook-ut. Më e madhja është në Prizren Kosovae.  Qenet  mbahen të izoluar nga njerezit dhe , kështu që ata kalojnë shumicën e jetës së tyre në zinxhirë të shkurtër dhe të rëndë. Kondicionimi i qenve luftarakë mund të përdorë një shumëllojshmëri të barnave ligjore dhe ilegale, duke përfshirë steroidet anabolike për të rritur masën e muskujve dhe për të nxitur agresivitetin. Drogat narkotike mund të përdoren gjithashtu për të rritur agresionin e qenve, për të rritur reaktivitetin dhe për të maskuar dhimbjen ose frikën gjatë një lufte. Qen eve te luftrave iu priten veshet pa anestezion dhe pa ndihme veterinare,  zakonisht kryejnë këtë prerje duke përdorur teknika të papërpunuara dhe çnjerëzore. Qentë të detyruar në luftime vuajnë nga lëndime të tmerrshme, si nga luftimet ashtu edhe nga dora e pronarëve të tyre të egër. Shumica në fund të fundit do të vriten në rrjet ose do të vdesin shpejt pas nga lëndimet e tyre. Ata që nuk mund të luftojnë më shpesh trajtohen brutalisht. Kjo praktikë barbare duhet të ndalet. Ata që ndodhin në luftimin e qenve janë përgjithësisht të përfshirë në sjellje të tjera të paligjshme. Luftimi i qenve është barbar dhe nuk mund të lejohet të jetë pjesë e një shoqërie moderne. Në vend që të tolerojmë akte të tilla mizore që kanë ndikim në mendjet e njeriut dhe gatishmërinë e tyre për të pranuar vrasjet e ekzistencave të gjalla, ne kërkojmë nga Kryeministri që të përshtasë një ligj për mbrojtjen e kafshëve, duke vënë çdo mizori kundër kafshëve dhe çdo vepër penale nën dënim te ashpër. A do të bashkohet me mua sot duke nënshkruar këtë peticion për të ndihmuar dhe te ndalojm ket act mizor njehere e pergjithmone.  Çështja: Luftimi i qenve është barbar dhe nuk mund ta lejojmë atë të jetë pjesë e shoqërisë moderne.Vepro! Luftimi me qentë është gjëja më e keqe që mind ti ndodh nje qenit. Është brutale. Njerëzit që bëjnë këtë janë të neveritshme dhe duhet të kenë turp për atë që po bëjnë. Qeni duhet të jetë i dashur dhe jo te malltretohet. Une I dua  të gjithë qentë dhe ata meritojnë të trajtohen me dashuri dhe respekt. Ju lutem bashkohuni me mua dhe firmosni kërkesën time që të gjithë qentë në Kosovë të trajtohen me dashuri dhe respekt që meritojnë Faleminderit. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager Serbian-Serbski Zahtevamo od  premijera Ramuša Haradinaja, AUVK-a i Kosovske policije da jednom zauvek zaustave ovo okrutno delo i da svim policijskim snagama nalože da preduzmu mere protiv počinilaca i zlostavljanje pasa za borbe. Počinjem ovu peticiju da zaustavim bolestan krvni sukob borbe pasa na Kosovu i zatvorim sve uzgajivačnice za pse gde se psi uzgajaju posebno za borbe pasa. Svakodnevno se događaju borbe na Kosovu. U Orahovcu na Kosovu tek nedavno u januaru 2019. godine dva psa su bila primorana da se bore jedni protiv drugih dok jedan od pasa umro od krvarenja. Naišao sam na ljude koji su ovo napravili u online poslovanje. Uzgajaju pse posebno za borbe pasa i oglašavaju ih i prodaju ih putem Facebooka. Najveći je u Prizrenu. Psi na Kosovu borbe su izolovani od drugih pasa i većine ljudi, tako da većinu svog života provode na kratkim, teškim lancima. Uslovljavanje borbenih pasa može da koristi razne legalne i ilegalne droge, uključujući anaboličke steroide za povećanje mišićne mase i podsticanje agresivnosti. Narkotici se mogu koristiti i za povećanje agresije pasa, povećanje reaktivnosti i maskiranje bola ili straha tokom borbe. Borbeni psi imaju iseceni  uši, a repove pristati u blizini njihovih tela. Borci obično obavljaju ovo sečenje / dokovanje koristeći sirove i nehumane tehnike. Psi koji su prisiljeni na borbu trpe strašne povrede, kako iz borbi, tako i od strane svojih zlih 'vlasnika'. Većina će na kraju biti ubijena u ringu ili će umreti ubrzo nakon povreda. Oni koji više ne mogu da se bore često se brutalno šalju. Ova varvarska praksa mora biti zaustavljena. Oni koji se odvijaju u borbama pasa uglavnom su uključeni u druga nezakonita ponašanja. Borba pasa je varvarska i ne može se dozvoliti da bude deo modernog društva. Umesto da tolerišemo takva okrutna dela koja utiču na ljudski um i njihovu spremnost da prihvate ubistva živih bića, zahtevamo od premijera da prilagodi zakon o zaštiti životinja, stavljajući svaku okrutnost prema životinjama i svako krivično delo pod strogom kaznom. Hoćeš li mi se danas pridružiti potpisivanjem ove peticije kako bi pomogao da se borci pasa privedu pravdi?  Pitanje: Borba pasa je varvarska i ne možemo  dozvoliti da bude deo modernog društva. Preduzeti! Borba sa psima je najgora stvar koja se događa psima. To je brutalno. Ljudi koji to rade su odvratni i trebalo bi da se stide onoga što rade. Psi treba da budu voljeni a ne ubijeni. Brinem o svim psima i oni zaslužuju da se prema njima postupa s ljubavlju i poštovanjem. Molim vas, pridružite mi se i potpišite moju peticiju tako da svi psi na Kosovu budu tretirani s ljubavlju i poštovanjem koje zaslužuju Hvala. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager

Petition to UK Parliament, RSPCA, Theresa May MP

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 my 13 year old Child, Along with Direct Animal Cruelty by the male neighbour towards my darling dog Bleue which has been reported and 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! Why hasn’t this Sorry excuse of a man been charged? Why has it all been ignored? Why is my Dog still locked up? WHY? Nottinghamshire Police are Neglectful and in this Case have caused us severe distress and Alarm and have successfully Victimised Me, my daughter and Bleue for being Victims. This is why Most people from Ethnic Backgrounds dont trust police because we automatically are labelled as the Villains and The Cause!! These are Facts and I am not afraid to be honest! Its a Matrix effect!!  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!   https://www.gofundme.com/please-help-me-get-bleue-home&rcid=r01-153270241275-2f906c09ce274a8b&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w
