The MONSTER Safari Club International in Arizona

Animals are trapped within a fenced enclosure from which they cannot escape, then people go in and pay a fee to kill those animals. Many of the animals used in canned hunts come from private breeders and zoos. These are animals that are indigenous to Africa or Asia, but they’re bred here in the U.S. for this kind of activity.

Nearly two dozen members of Congress have co-sponsored a bill known as the Sportsmanship in Hunting Act, which would make it illegal to transport exotic species between states for the purposes of hunting.

The Safari Club International in Arizona has lobbied Congress and spoken out against bills that would make the practice of hunting exotic game in fenced-in preserves illegal. The organization based in Arizona is defending this controversial type of hunting that is against the law in Arizona.

Monsters of New York and other Big Cities

IF HORSES COULD SPEAK THEY WOULD MOST DEFINITELY TELL YOU THEY DO NOT WANT TO PULL YOUR FAT ASS THROUGH BUSY STREETS, BATTLE CARS, EXHAUST, HEAT AND IDIOTS

Every year, the list of accidents involving horse-drawn carriages grows, and horses continue to endure pain and suffering because of this outdated practice. The only way to end this cruelty is to ban it permanently and give these horses the freedom that they deserve.

Forcing horses to pull oversized loads isn’t romantic—it’s cruel. Horses are forced to toil in all weather extremes, dodge traffic, and pound the pavement all day long. These gentle animals suffer from respiratory ailments because they breathe in exhaust fumes, and they develop debilitating leg problems from walking on hard surfaces. In some cases, horses have even dropped dead from heatstroke after working in scorching summer heat and humidity.

Accidents Waiting to Happen

Horses are extremely sensitive to loud noises and unexpected sounds—and busy city streets have plenty of both. Horses and people have been seriously hurt—with some injuries resulting in fatalities—when horses have become spooked and run amok.

There have also been countless incidents in which carriages have been hit by impatient or careless drivers. Accidents have occurred in nearly every city where carriage rides are allowed.images

There is no way that cities, with their exhaust fumes, hard road surfaces, and busy traffic patterns can provide a humane … environment for a carriage horse.

Abused ‘Til Their Dying Day

Horses are afforded no federal protection under the Animal Welfare Act, so the responsibility of looking out for horses’ welfare falls to local animal control officials. But anti-cruelty laws provide few safeguards to horses, and many humane authorities just don’t have the resources or the time to monitor horse-drawn carriages in order to ensure that horses are not being overworked and that operators are following regulations.

When horses grow too old, tired, or ill to continue pulling heavy loads, they aren’t retired to green pastures and loving homes, as many people are led to believe. It’s cost-prohibitive to maintain a permanent sanctuary for the countless numbers of horses who break down in this industry. Instead, many worn-out horses are slaughtered and turned into food for dogs or for carnivores in zoos, or else they’re shipped overseas for human consumption.

What You Can Do

If you live in a city where carriage rides are still allowed, contact your local legislators to ask if they will sponsor a ban. Many cities—including Biloxi, Mississippi; Camden, New Jersey; Palm Beach, Pompano Beach, Key West, and Treasure Island, Florida—have already banned horse-drawn carriages.

Ryan Landry Shoots and Kills His Dog When The Dog Became Inconvenient

Man Adopts Shelter Dog Then Shoots Him To Death, Police Say It’s Not A Crime

(VIDEO)

In March, Ryan Landry of Berlin, New Hampshire, responded to a post in a Facebook group about Bruno, a shelter dog who needed a home. Before leaving the shelter with the one-year-old, mixed breed puppy, Landry signed a contract with the organization. As part of the agreement, he was informed that he had the right to return Bruno at any time free of charge and with no questions asked.

A week before taking the pup into the woods to kill him, Landry tried to give the dog away on Facebook. In his post he described Bruno as a “great dog in need of a great home.” Landry also stated that Bruno was “great with other animals and with kids.” He said he just didn’t have time for him.

12004133_996523460389089_2754745527132510255_n

12002291_996520420389393_2855928139796248320_n-1A local resident walking in the woods discovered Bruno’s bullet ridden body in September. He states the dog was shot at least four times, and the wounds were on various parts of his body. The man was so disturbed by what he saw that he took photos of the dead pup, along with photos of the scene where he found the dog.

The pictures show at least two bullet wounds in the dog’s back, injuries which would have caused him to suffer terribly, before he finally died.

The man who found Bruno counted six additional spent rounds at the scene. All of those bullets were also apparently fired at the dog, but didn’t strike him.

Determined to find out who had committed this horrible crime, he took all of the evidence he’d gathered to the local police. He also uploaded the photos to Facebook, asking if anyone recognized the now deceased pup.

Social media went to work and quickly matched the photos of the dead animal to the photos which Ryan Landry had posted of the “great, kid-friendly dog” he’d recently tried to get rid of.

Landry didn’t deny pumping the dog’s body full of bullets. He claimed that he had “no choice” but to take the pup into the woods and shoot him in the back and other areas of his body. When questioned by police, Landry claimed that Bruno had bitten three children, even though only a week before he posted that the dog was “great with kids.”

Of course even if Bruno had bitten a child, Landry had many choices. He could have taken the dog back to the shelter where he got him. It would not have cost him a dime and the organization would have worked to place the dog in a appropriate home. He could have called animal control and they would have either returned him to the shelter or made the decision to euthanize him, if it was determined that he was a “dangerous animal.” He could have posted on Facebook that he was going to kill the dog for biting his kids if someone didn’t take it, instead of claiming that it was great with kids and he just didn’t have time for it. As a last resort, he could have had the dog humanely put down by a vet.

In spite of the horrible way that he killed Bruno, leaving him to suffer and die alone in the woods, Landry was not charged with a crime. That’s because shooting a dog to death isn’t a crime in New Hampshire.

Bruno’s murder has caused outrage across the state. Animal rights activists want to see the state’s law changed. An online petition addressed to the New Hampshire State Legislature, along with New Hampshire Governor Margaret Hassan, urges lawmakers to pass Bruno’s law. The law would make it a felony offense to shoot a dog in the state.

Here’s more on this story from WMUR.

New Hampshire is one of 27 states that has no law against shooting dogs.

Cruel Restaurant Owner Locks Bear in Tiny Cage to Attract Customers and is Only Fed Junk That Tourist Throw at Him

I don’t think this is the restaurant where this man keeps a bear in a filthy small cage to attract customers but  it is one of many in Albania that does. www.sofraeariut.com

Cruel and Selfish Restaurant owner keeps wild bear in a cage of trash 24/7

 

‘In this environment he is not able to follow his natural instincts, has no opportunity to move properly, look for food, climb, dig or take a bath.

‘He also cannot retreat from the gaze of visitors and is forced to interact with them constantly and beg them for food.

Lonely, desperate and so bored he bites himself: Distressing footage reveals plight of brown bear Tomi who is kept in a tiny cage 24 hours a day and must beg for scraps of junk food as a restaurant tourist attraction in Albania

  • Tomi is kept in a run-down restaurant in mountains of Albania where diners can watch the animal as they eat
  • He displays disturbing behaviour such as chewing limbs and spasms  – a result of ‘unbearable’ living condition
  • But his owner who hunted him down with a tranquiliser gun simply blames boredom and sees no problems
  • Bear is desperately hungry relying on sweets and crisps from visitors and can be seen begging, paws outstretched
  • He is one of 80 caged bears across Albania and animal welfare campaigners are demanding urgent end to cruelty

Reliant on the generosity of passers-by for his daily diet of junk food, he cuts a lonely and desperate figure.

Crowds flock to see Tomi the brown bear in his ‘home’ – a tiny cage next to a run-down restaurant in beautiful mountains 40 miles north of the Albanian capital Tirana.

They take videos of him on their smart-phones, pose for selfies, and if feeling kind give him sweets, cake and crisps. His owner occasionally gives him beer to quench his thirst.Tomi was captured from the wild and forced to live in a cage

Tomi’s mood fluctuates.

Sometimes, when he can smell food, he cups his paws in a begging motion and gazes hopefully in the direction of the customers.

Occasionally he puts his jaws through the iron bars and sticks out his tongue, clinging to the hope that someone might feed him.

In other moments, he paces around his cage intensely, and then goes into what appears to be a self-harming spasm – biting his limbs while shaking his head violently.

His owner blames the distressing behaviour on ‘boredom’ but insists there is nothing wrong with locking up Tomi for 24 hours a day.

An animal welfare expert said it is the result of ‘extremely monotonous and confined living conditions’ which, he added, are ‘unbearable’ for him.

Until two years ago, Tomi roamed the mountains, woodland and river across the road from the eatery where he is now a very reluctant tourist attraction.

Then the man who runs the restaurant, who refuses to reveal his name, came up with his sickening idea of taking the bear out of his natural habitat – in a bid to boost takings.

He said he paid a vet to hunt Tomi down with a tranquiliser gun.

Tomi is one of about 80 brown bears thought to be trapped in cages at restaurants, petrol stations and beaches across Albania.

Some are forced to perform as dancing bears and incredibly live in even more cramped conditions than Tomi.

Campaigners have repeatedly urged the country’s Government to rescue them from captivity but despite numerous promises of action nothing has really happened and the Albanian brown bear is now a seriously endangered species.

Only about 250 brown bears remain at large in the poverty stricken country (in addition to the estimated 80 bears living in cages).

Daily Mail photographer Roland Hoskins and I stumbled on Tomi as we travelled through Albania on another assignment and over a period of two days witnessed first-hand his suffering.

The restaurant owner, a married father of five in his 50s, was unapologetic about Tomi’s plight.

As children and their parents fed him sweets, he said of his ‘pet’: ‘Tomi is the same as a human being but does not speak.

‘He is so used to human beings.

‘Once I forgot to leave him water and he made a big noise and I realised something was wrong so I went back to his cage and realised ‘oh my god, I forgot his water’.’

There was no water in Tomi’s cage as an interpreter posing as a customer interviewed the owner, who added: ‘Do you want me to bring Tomi out of the cage? Stay still and don’t be scared and he will be ok. He is a sacred animal. He has healing powers, if you touch him he can help you.’

His offer was declined.

Later, as Tomi became distressed and chewed his limbs and shook his head, the owner said casually: ‘Sometimes he gets bored and does this. It’s quite usual.

‘I have had Tomi for two years. I paid a vet from Tirana to shoot him with a tranquilliser. Business has gone up since.’

The Mail took extensive video footage of Tomi in his cage and showed it to an expert on the welfare of bears.

Zoologist Thomas Pietsch, of the London-based campaign group FOUR PAWS, said: ‘The bear shows a very strong behavioural disorder which is clear evidence of serious animal welfare deficits. This self-harming behaviour is clearly compulsive and is a result of the extremely monotonous and confined living conditions.

He added: ‘In Albania there are still dozens of brown bears kept in bad keeping conditions and used for profit and entertainment purposes.

These animals are forced to live in small cages or chained up near hotels and restaurants or privately owned gardens and backyards simply for the amusement of people.

‘FOUR PAWS wants to tackle this problem in cooperation with the Albanian Ministry of Environment.

In a Memorandum of Understanding signed this year both parties agreed to work together on a sustainable and animal-friendly solution for these brown bears.

‘In neighbouring Kosovo, FOUR PAWS has already achieved an end to the cruel, illegal private keeping of brown bears, when it was banned in 2013.’

The Albanian Minister of Environment, Lefter Koka, who signed the memorandum of understanding, said: ‘We want to strengthen the image of Albania as a responsible tourism destination, where cruelty towards animals has no legitimate place.’

But critics doubt whether the country, which hopes to join the EU in the next few years, will act on its promises.

The campaign group, People Advocating for Caged Bears, said a multi-agency workshop was held three years ago on the issue of the ‘Illegal Capturing and Keeping of Brown Bears in Albania’.

It added that a report ‘concluded that, in general, people are not concerned with conservation, welfare or engaging in education with regards to wildlife and the environment.

This may explain indifference towards the keeping bears in cages throughout the country.

‘Unregulated hunting and non-existent laws on gun ownership have meant that anyone could go out in any season and shoot whatever they saw, with no regard for conservation issues.’

Campaigners hope the Mail’s report on Tomi will shame the authorities into action.

For isolated and hungry Tomi, desperate to return to the woodland and mountains he once roamed freely, decisive moves to end his suffering cannot come soon enough

Bears in Albania

FOUR PAWS helps bears in Albania 


© FOUR PAWS | Hazir Reka

In Albania there are still approximately up to 80 bears leading a miserable existence in captivity

Most privately kept bears are being used for profit or entertainment purposes kept in cages or on chains close to hotels and restaurants or in backyards for private amusement. During summer months, they also serve as “photo props” for tourists on beaches or in pedestrian areas. Often the bears are fixed with a chain through the nose to bend them to their owners will.

Abusive practices are not the only problem in the region

Almost all bears in private keeping in Albania have been illegally captured as cubs from the wild. Consequently, the wild bear population is estimated at approximately 250 animals and remains endangered.

FOUR PAWS wants to help!

But the situation could be improved very soon, because last weekend, FOUR PAWS’ founder Heli Dungler and the Albanian Minister of Environment, Lefter Koka, signed a memorandum of understanding. Both parties will jointly work on a sustainable and animal-friendly solutions for brown bears, a species often captured and abused for profit and entertainment purposes. Our long-term goal is to completely end cruel private keeping like it was achieved in Kosovo.


© FOUR PAWS | Hazir Reka

in a first step, the penal system shall be tightened

Brown bears living in the wild in Albania are already protected by law, but violations are usually either not prosecuted or nominal fines imposed. There is no official data available about the actual number of bears in captivity and the country lacks accommodation possibilities for wild animals taken from bad keeping conditions.

 

Lefter Koka, Minister of Environment of Albania: “First, we want to focus on ending the most cruel forms of bear keeping in Albania. There are many bears abused to attract tourists, for example in tiny cages near restaurants, on beaches or near famous sights. We want to strengthen the image of Albania as a responsible tourism destination, where cruelty towards animals has no legitimate place.”

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. —

Three teen girls are charged with animal cruelty after a Snapchat video that shows a bunny being thrown around a room and slammed against the wall was posted on a Facebook group created by Nassau County residents.

The teens giggled and laughed as the bunny smashed against the wall. The video shows one of the girls kick the bunny as it tries to escape.

It happened at a Taylor Breanna Thomas’s, age 13, house on at Lina Road in Fernandina Beach.  Nassau County Sheriff’s Office Bill Leeper said deputies were at the home early Saturday morning.

NCOS said the three girls are between the ages of 13 and 14 and were arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

The bunny was taken to Yulee  Animal Services. He has a fractured leg and other minor injuries and won’t be available for adoption for a while as he receives additional care, Nassau County Animal Services posted on its Facebook page.

When reviewing the News Story and Facebook comments, people living in the neighborhood have posted alleged complaints regarding the 3 teens killing a hamster, torturing animals, encouraging dog fights, bullying daughters of neighbors and one neighbor believing his dog was possibly killed by the same teens. They reference a dog named Shadow from the property where the teens were arrested that was seeking shelter while showing visible signs of hip or leg damage, claim the Police have been called there in the past and the teens are left unsupervised in the home.

Their names are:

  1. Taylor Breanna Thomas
  2. Dejanae Williams
  3. Marleigh Ferguson
  4. Ashlyn Boen

 

The house where the incident happened is on the 85000 block of Lina Rd, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034-1204

YULEE, Fla. – The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office states three teenagers were arrested Saturday morning and charged with felony cruelty to animals. The teens were transferred to the juvenile detention facility in Jacksonville.

“The Nassau County Animal Service Facebook page states the rabbit is safe in its care and has a fractured leg and the bunny won’t be available for adoption until its injury has healed”.

Rabbits have very fragile bones, they die easily from fright and shock causes severe illness.
In the video you can hear the rabbit being banged off the walls and seen being chased and kicked repeatedly. It is nothing less than a Miracle if this rabbit survives with only a fractured leg.

When reviewing the News Story and Facebook comments, people living in the neighborhood have posted alleged complaints regarding the 3 teens killing a hamster, torturing animals, encouraging dog fights, bullying daughters of neighbors and one neighbor believing his dog was possibly killed by the same teens.

The rabbit, recuperating at the animal shelter, has a leg fracture, fractured pelvis and some bruising. The bunny will eventually go up for adoption once he has recovered.

SAN TAN VALLEY — A 51-year-old Pinal County  man has been arrested on animal cruelty charges after hanging a 6-month-old puppy by its hind legs, authorities said.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said Martin Benavidez was arrested June 16 in the 9900 block of Asbury Lane in San Tan Valley after a neighbor reported hearing a dog whimpering.

The neighbor told PCSO deputies she went outside and saw the dog hanging upside down and whimpering in pain in her neighbor’s horse stable.

“When deputies arrived, they found the dog cowering under a table in a covered horse pen,” said Sheriff Paul Babeu in a statement. “It was no longer hanging, but was clearly injured, as it could not walk.”

10863064_GBenavidez told deputies he was training the dog, a Queensland Heeler, but denied hurting the him.

“This is a horrific case of animal abuse and for the owner to think he was training the dog is absurd,” Babeu said. “The dog was being tortured, not trained.”

The PCSO said an animal control officer took custody of the dog and helped document the animal’s injuries, which included swelling and rope marks on its hind legs. The owner relinquished custody of the dog.

The dog is recovering at the Pinal County Animal and Control Shelter.

“I find it deplorable for a person to think that blatant animal cruelty is training a dog,” said Pinal County Animal Control Director Audra Michael. “He should now know that it won’t be tolerated here in Pinal County. The dog is with us and is recovering from the injuries.”

Michael said shelter employees have named the dog “Spur.”

“We’re confident that Spur will never suffer from abuse again,” Michael said.
