Weltweit gingen am vergangenen Samstag in über 60 Städten die Menschen auf die Straße, um gegen das Hundemassaker in Rumänien zu demonstrieren .

In der Bayerischen Landeshauptstadt München wie in über 60 Europäischen Städten haben sich Hunderte von Menschen mit Kundgebungen und Demonstrationen gegen die von den Steuergeldern subvensionierten Morden versammelt und protestiert. Alleine in der Landeshauptstadt München haben sich über zweihundert Demonstranten versammelt, um gegen die noch immer andauernden Tötungen der Straßenhunde in Rumänien zu
demonstrieren.Eine Performance vor vielen Zuschauern am Isartor zeigte die Brutalität, mit der die Hunde verfolgt werden und wie an
ihrem Tod verdient wird, denn Hundefänger kassieren für dortige Verhältnisse hohe Prämien,genauso wie die staatlichen Tierheime.
Der Gemeinsam mit vielen anderen Städten in Deutschland und weltweit fand diese Protestaktion unter dem Motto „YES WE CARE“ statt.
In München trafen sich die Tierschützer am Max-Josephs-Platz und zogen von dort aus mit einem Demonstrationszug durch die Innenstadt bis zum Sendlinger Tor, wo eineSchlusskundgebung stattfand und ein Infostand aufgebaut war. Hauptrednerin bei dieser Kundgebung war Daniela Böhm, die Tochter des Schauspielers Karlheinz Böhm. Neben Daniela Böhm hielten noch von der Partei MUT –( Mensch, Umwelt, Tierschutz) Barbara Nauheimer
und Peter Zimmer eine Rede.In ihrer Rede ging Daniela Böhm auf den Mysteriösen Tod eines Jungen mit dem die Lynchjustiz begann ein.” Der mysteriöse Tod eines kleinen Jungen war der traurige Anlass für eine beispielslose Lynchjustiz und Jagd auf die Straßenhunde Rumäniens, die im letzten Herbst ihren Lauf nahm. Und für ein Gesetz, welches ihre Tötung in den dortigen Tierheimen erlaubt, wenn sie nicht innerhalb von 14 Tagen vermittelt werden, eine Frist, die gerade bei einer Vermittlung ins Ausland nahezu unmöglich ist! Wir fordern die Aufhebung dieses Gesetzes. Wir fordern die EU auf, endlich einzugreifen,”so Daniela Böhm.Desweiteren kritisierte sie die Verwendung der Steuergelder in Ihrer Rede. Daniela Böhm wörtlich:”Die Kommunen bekommen bis zu 250 Euro pro Hund und dessen Unterbringung und dies hat dazu geführt, dass das Einfangen von Hunden und ihre anschließende Tötung zu einem lukrativen Geschäft geworden sind, denn für jeden neuen Hund gibt es neues Geld! Auch die privaten Hundefänger profitieren von einer staatlichen Prämie von durchschnittlich 50 Euro pro Hund! Die Hunde werden teilweise auf brutalste Art und Weise eingefangen”, so die Tierschützerin.
“Die EU beruft sich darauf, so Daniela Böhm, dass sie keine Befugnis hat einzugreifen, da die Behandlung von Straßenhunden bisher nicht durch das Gemeinschaftsrecht geregelt sei, eine Rechtsgrundlage also fehlt. Dann sollte sie diese dringend mal schaffen! Sie schafft sie ja sonst auch für ganz banale Dinge, kristisierte Daniela Böhm.” Horst Seehofer wirbt gerade auf einem Wahlplakat mit dem Satz: „Wir brauchen ein besseres Europa“ Ja! Wir brauchen in der Tat ein besseres Europa! Ein Europa, das die Tiere als fühlende Lebewesen nicht nur auf dem Papier anerkennt, sondern dementsprechend handelt. Ein Europa, das sich für die Hunde in Rumänien einsetzt und die Regierung auffordert, ihr grausames Tötungsgesetz aufzuheben.”
Unzähliges Bildmaterial aus Rumänien beweist, dass hier gegen alle Rechte der Tiere verstoßen wird, wie etwa das Europäische Übereinkommen zum Schutz von Heimtieren, so Daniela Böhm in Ihrem Statement. ” Jeder getötete Hund, so Daniela Böhm abschließend ist eine Schande für die Menschlichkeit”.
Neben der Prominenten Rednerin waren auch die Tierschutzpartei (MUT – Mensch, Umwelt, Tierschutz) war mit Barbara Nauheimer
und Peter Zimmer vertreten und machte deutlich, dass für die Rechte der Tiere in Europa noch viel zu wenig getan wird und dass sich die MUT für die Rechte der Menschen als auch der Tiere einsetzt.
Organisiert wurde die Veranstaltung in München von Uwe Siwek, Susann Müller und Bettina Presche.
Gemeinsam mit Städten wie Berlin, Bogota, Toronto oder Amsterdam, hat München Flagge für Rumäniens Hunde gezeigt und sich damit wieder einmal als „Weltstadt mit Herz“bewiesen; mehr als das: als eine „Weltstadt mit Herz auch für die Tiere“.

Loving Louie – A Dog’s Shelter Journey Continues …

https://youtu.be/w5sXYXryOj8

Louie is healing. Despite the odds against him, Pet Orphans rescued Louie from a kill shelter. They saw beyond the awful skin disease he suffered and label he’d been given: “Aggressive!”. They looked deep and recognized a dog they could help. Inside and out. So they did help. From day one, Louie demonstrated that labels aren’t always accurate – or fair. Now you can barely notice the remnants of his debilitating mange. And just see for yourself the results of love, care and attention. Fall in love with Louie, now and in future episodes of lucky Louie.

Video – Vietnam: Taped-Mouth-Dog’s Medical Update


Video – Vietnam: Taped-Mouth-Dog’s Medical Update

Video – Vietnam: Taped-Mouth-Dog Medical Update

Today I spoke with the people nursing the dog, who is now known as Lucky, and they said she is off the critical list, although still seriously ill. She is receiving IV fluids, plus antibiotics and is on strong pain medication. Today she took some food through a syringe, which is a good step but she may still be in grave danger.

Veterinarian Dr. Nghia is waiting on blood results to clarify if Lucky’s facial bones are infected, which may have serious consequences. Meanwhile, everything possible is being done at A.R.C. for Lucky to have her best chance of recovery.

Lucky’s Story

The information below is based upon the experience of Julie Underwood, who was part of the initial rescue team [I have rewritten and condensed the original wording.]

In what can only be described as horrific, the Vietnamese dog who appears to have escaped from a local dog butcher was spotted buy a photographer in Bến Tre, as she ran loose in farmland, with her mouth taped tightly shut. She was already starving and excessively dehydrated because the tape was so tight she could not take anything into her mouth. Nor could she pant or cry out in pain. This dog was slowly dying.

Unable to catch the dog himself, the photographer alerted animal rescuers who kicked into action and at 5am the following morning, a group of local Vietnamese animal lovers drove 2.5 hours and went to work searching for the stricken dog. After searching for several hours with no sightings at all, the group were forced to leave empty handed.  Right before leaving the group decided to go door to door in the neighborhood, leaving their phone number for residents to call if they saw the dog. It was a long  2.5 hour drive home, knowing the dog was still out there.

At 7pm that evening they received a phone call that a local resident saw the dog and chased it but the terrified dog ran into the mud. Using torches, a few of the volunteers who had stayed in the area captured the dog within an hour. A new rescue team assembled to prepare for  the 2.5 hour drive back to the dog’s location, to bring the dog back for immediate veterinary attention.

At 10pm a volunteer from a rescue group and a local veterinarian drove to in Bến Tre, where the dog was now contained. It was 5am before the dog arrived at the Saigon Pet Clinic for treatment to begin from Dr. Nghia.

By 8am the tape had been removed from the dog’s mouth, but she was extremely weak and by now, asleep. The clinic issued a request that the dog receive no visitors at this time as she is far too unwell to cope with any more added stress.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net 1171

SayNoToDogMeat.Net send a big thank you to each of the rescue team members from Gia Đình của Bé and the vets at Saigon Pet Clinic who worked on this poor dog. Lucky is now under the care of A.R.C. Vietnam who are doing all they can to keep her pain free as they nurse her through this terrible time. She is surrounded by love and constant care.

When commenting,  please remember that Vietnamese animal lovers searched and found this dog, which is proof once again of the dedication to animal welfare by a growing number of Vietnamese people.  Lucky is now surrounded by love and a dedicated team of volunteers and vet staff. We will continue to bring you updates as she progresses.

Africa – Benin: Theft Of Dogs For Dog Meat


Africa – Benin: Theft Of Dogs For Dog Meat

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Africa – Benin: Theft Of Dogs For Dog Meat

Dog meat has become popular in the west African country Benin, where it is no longer seen as shameful to enjoy eating it. The meal of dog meat is usually washed down with local whiskey known as ‘good woman,’ which is often produced in batches of 20 to 50 liters from using palms. Depression is a problem amongst people forced to live in poverty and many people turn to drops of the whiskey which is sold in small dropper portions. Consequently large profits are made from selling the whiskey in such tiny portions.

With high numbers of people living in poverty, those with criminal intent look for ways to make a quick dollar and take advantage of people and situations. Residents are warned to be careful of men who knock on their door in the shadows of the night, then make excuses and leave. Many home owners don’t realize that their home is being watched by thieves who are mapping out what the home owner’s daily patterns are, to be able to predict when the home owner leaves the house and when they return.

Thieves steal home owner’s dogs to slaughter and cook into dog meat, or sometimes sell the live dog to a dog butcher for cash. Once the thieves know the home owner’s pattern, they grab the dog, which is usually sleeping in the garage, then go through anything else of interest in the garage, taking what they can carry.

Once thieves sell off the home owner’s goods they usually have enough money to buy a plate of dog meat and rice, and still have enough left over to buy beer to drink with the meal. There used to be a time when dog eaters in Benin were ashamed of eating dogs, but dog meat has now become an accepted meat without fear of shame.

Benin is in West Africa, just west of Nigeria, which is one the main dog eating country in Africa, where over one million dogs are brutally slaughtered each year. Any dogs which become lost or wander in Benin these days will almost certainly be captured, slaughtered and cooked into dog meat. While stray dogs are continually hunted down for their meat, what will happen when all the stray dogs are finally killed off and eaten?

As stray dogs become more scarce and home owners tighten up their home-security in order to protect their own dogs and belongings, life will become increasingly difficult for thieves, who may quickly resort to violence. The price of dog meat will be driven up to match customer demand. and sadly, the situation for dogs in Benin will compound dramatically.

SayNoToDogMeat.Net is gearing up to commence a positive new project in Africa and adopting a strict anti-wildlife trade clause! The clause will include a sustainable utilization rule/option for communities that we wish to provide a lucrative and attractive green money-making agricultural trade, moving them away from cruelty and, into well-being for all, which includes dog and cat meat traders.

SayNoToDogMeat.Net recently announced that we have embraced the fight to halt the illegal Rhino horn trade which runs parallel with the dog and cat meat trade. Both trades have many cross-over connections and are falsely marketed to increase a man’s libido and bring medical wellness – even though we know this to be untrue. Embracing the fight to halt the illegal rhino horn trade means helping preserve the endangered Rhinoceros and bring to an end it’s cruel illegal poaching.

While SayNoToDogMeat.Net does not fight the bear bile trade, we will be including the push to ban bear bile and stop ivory trades – both of which also cross over with the dog and cat meat trades. For these trades to be truly ended, all of the trades must be brought down because they all deal in fake medicine and aphrodisiacs, including the dog and cat meat trade.

Thank you for reading,

Michele Brown.

SayNOtoDOGMEAT: BokNal: South Korea’s Dog Eating Days /1


BokNal: South Korea’s Dog Eating Days /1

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

BokNal: South Korea’s Dog Eating Days /1

This is the first of a series of articles on South Korea’s BokNal, written from my own first hand experience. The articles will be numbered to follow the sequence of events as they unfolded on the day.

Background

July 13th, 2015 kicks off the first of South Korea’s three main dog eating days, known locally as BokNal. Festival organisers pray for excessive heat and no rain because Korean dog eaters falsely believe eating dog meat is the best way to cool their body temperature during their oppressive summers.

The first of the three days is called Chobok, July 13, and the weather forecast is 24c (75f),  with “tons of rain” the night before, followed by “heavy rain” in the morning and a possibly “mostly sunny evening” (official weather wording.) In other words the first festival day is already not going to plan.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Seoul is a cosmopolitan city with impressive skyscrapers and home to some of the world’s most advanced technology. As much as its winters are bitterly cold with snow and ice, its summers can be oppressively hot and humid. The rains in summer can dump rain like a monsoon, which don’t take long to cause major problems because Seoul’s landscape is flat and therefore drainage is not able to cope with the sudden influx of excessive rain. Consequently this can cause flash flooding, making driving in the city next to impossible and being a pedestrian becomes a nightmare.

I was caught in one of Korea’s dumping rains the year before last, when the skies opened up and within a short time I was walking in water half way up to my knees. This sort of summer rain can certainly ruin any of the BokNal days.

However, don’t start celebrating the rain just yet. The year before last when I attended the second of the BokNal days known as Joongbok,  the main ‘party festival’ was “not” held on the announced BokNal day of July 23, but rather the following day, July 24th!

I know this for a fact because I spent that week inside South Korea’s infamous Moran Market – spending up to 12 hours a day inside  the market, where I struck up undercover ‘friendships’ with a number of the main dog butchers in order to obtain information and be invited into their killing rooms (I will write about this in a later article.)

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

On the official Joongbok day of July 23, 2013, Moran Market was almost empty of people, apart from butchers and slaughterhouse workers; but live dogs were stockpiled in the holding pens and death cages. Considering this was Joongbok, it seemed erily strange for Moran Market to be so void of people. On that day I was inside the market from early morning until after dark, where I watched trucks of dogs arriving and being unloaded, and house pets sold into the hands of dog butchers by the pet dog’s owners!

Moran Market Layout

To understand the series of articles about Moran Market, it will help if you understand its layout. Moran Market is situated on the “other side of the road” that marks the boundary for the capital city Seoul. This was a deliberate move so South Korea can say they have no dog meat slaughterhouses within the city limits of Seoul. But all you have to do is walk across the road. [Before leaving South Korea I also briefly visited some small-scale illegal dog meat sellers inside the Seoul city boundary, where live dogs were kept in small dark cages and slaughtered on the spot for their meat.]

If travelling by the subway, as you come up the steps its only a short walk to Moran Market and a McDonalds restaurant is less than one minutes walk from the main entrance of the market. It is not unusual for backyard vendors to sell small animals or vegetables  along the busy sidewalk, before you have even turned the corner for Moran Market’s entrance. For instance: live cats tied into onion bags are sometimes sold on the street, for cat meat. Other vendors may sell vegetables to go with dog meat dishes.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

The Moran Market area is shaped in a long rectangle. Standing on the pedestrian crossing on the main highway looking into the market, you will see a long strip of buildings on your right, flanked by a sealed narrow roadway. A thick concrete barrier, about mid-calf height, runs down the length of the roadway to more buildings in the far distance. On the other side of the concrete barrier is a huge carpark with a solid fence running its length to hide the assorted buildings and shed-type structures on the other side of the fence. These buildings and shed structures become part of Moran Market’s party central day.

Party Central

The next morning, July 24, I arrived back at Moran Market at my usual very early time and instead of entering by the rear side entrance, from the side street alongside the slaughterhouses, I walked from the subway toward the main entrance. There were people everywhere, hustling and bustling in all directions which seemed strange because Joongbok was yesterday.

Throughout the night Moran Market had been transformed into party central. The usual empty carpark was filled with giant marquees which housed all sorts of market goods from mundane household gadgets through to clothing and appliances. The front of the market (highway entrance), was filled with plant nurseries selling all types of flowers, plants and garden accessories. There were people everywhere and more people arriving by the minute.

Walking past the plant nurseries it didn’t take long before the true reason for the Joongbok party day smacked me in the face.
As I walked past the flowers, shrubs and small trees, next in line was stalls with large displays of herbs and spices which were the specific ingredients for cooking dog meat.  Live dogs were the only other “ingredient” customers needed for their recipe.

As I stood at the herb stalls, directly behind me,  just several steps away were live dogs in death cages, ready for customers to choose to eat and watch be electrocuted on the spot. These live dogs were the missing ingredient to go with the herbs and spices. Welcome to Joongbok. Moran Market’s party would not be like any other party I had ever attended.

This is the first instalment in the series: Bok Nal: South Korea’s “Dog Eating Days” /1
Please watch for the next article in the series.
