Have been working as a freelance journalist/writer since 2000, and am experienced in a wide spectrum of disciplines. I am familiar in fields of multi-faceted interest, ranging from corporate journalism to writing about music, culture, food, politics, tourism, human interest, science and sustainable energy and so forth. Learning on the job is a never ending story! Animal welfare, however, is a main objective, especially after having witnessed cruelty inflicted upon animals with my own eyes. Wildlife as well as companion animals deserve our attention. As such I help to find homes for kittens and also try to raise awareness for the necessity of spay & neuter initiatives. And we strive to get the fox snare banned from Wallon legislation, because of its barbaric nature causing harm to other animals as well, like the badger, which is a protected species under European law.
Non aux pièges tuants | Ban the fox snare | Geen vossenstrop |
Pas plus cruauté envers les animaux | No more cruelty and suffering for animals | Geen lijden meer voor dieren in het wild | On thursday February 11 in 2010, a badger was found in a snare, located near Flemish and Wallonian nature reserves in Eben Emael, Belgium. He was so badly injured he died the next day. Snares are legal in Wallonie, French-speaking Belgium. They are used to catch foxes. But it's not just foxes that get caught, badgers also wind up as victims and they are a protected species.
