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“.

Cambodia: Home Dog Meat Butcher WARNING!


 

Cambodia: Home Dog Meat Butcher

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

Cambodia: Home Dog Meat Butcher

Cambodia has a large dog meat trade, supported by local people and a burgeoning tourist market, which is heavily made up of people from dog and cat eating countries such as China, South Korea and Vietnam. SayNoToDogMeat.Net are regularly told harrowing stories from heartbroken pet owners whose pet has been stolen by dog snatchers in Cambodia.

I don’t know the origin of the dog in the photographs, except that it seemed a friendly and docile dog, meaning it does not appear to have been a homeless street dog. Consequently, this dog may have been a loved stolen pet.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

The dog was most likely tied up with its legs trussed together and it’s mouth tied shut and it was quite possibly beaten with a lump of wood, to deliberately “tenderise” it which means breaking bones and deliberately causing great pain and terror in the animal, in the false belief that the meat will produce better results for the man’s libido.

From the photographs we do know the dog was stabbed in the throat and the blood would have been collected in a bowl, for cooking the meat later on. Congealed blood is often used in dog or cat meat cooking and there is even a congealed blood pudding which is enjoyed by many locals. Congealed blood pudding is made from many different animal species blood, including dogs and cats.

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

We can see the dog was stabbed in the throat and know the blood would have been collected in a bowl, for cooking the meat later on. Congealed blood is often used in dog or cat meat cooking and there is even a congealed blood pudding which is enjoyed by many pet meat eaters, in many different countries. Congealed blood pudding is made from many different animal species’ blood, including dogs and cats. It is also incredibly dangerous to eat as it involves ingesting untreated and untested blood.

As seen in the third photograph, the dog is then hung by its neck from a branch in a tree as the man ignites a hand-held blow torch to slowly burn the dog’s fur off.  We can only pray that the dog was already dead when its fur was set on fire – although, this is sometimes deliberately done with the animal fully conscious, seen as another way to tenderise the meat.

Please continue to sign our SayNoToDogMeat.Net petitions to help us fight this terrible trade and get it shut down for good.

Michele Brown.

Achieving a No Kill Nation: What is Happening on the Cutting Edge of the Movement – A Giveaway

By Jody on August 18, 2015

http://barkandswagger.com/achieving-no-kill-nation-happening-cutting-edge-movement-giveawaY – FOR MORE INFORMATION!

About nine months ago, I was invited to a screening of a film that blew my mind. It was called Redemption: The No Kill Revolution in America. The filY addressed the stark truth behind the killing of millions of companion animals in shelters each year, and introduced the exciting, growing movement to save them. A big takeaway was that overpopulation, the main reason given by shelters for the killing, was a myth, and the film supported this claim with sobering statistics.  Overpopulation is an excuse we’ve believed for years. The No Kill Movement is changing all that forever. Are you up for a No Kill Nation?

HORROR-VIDEO – Trinidad and Tobago: Dog Meat Uncovered

VIDEO – Trinidad and Tobago: Dog Meat Uncovered

When some local Chinese residents of Diego Martin, Trinidad and Tobago were filmed red-handed, skinning a dog in the vicinity of a Chinese restaurant, outrage broke out after the video was posted on social media. But when the footage was aired on Trinidad and Tobago television, local people were horrified. As seen in the video, Trinidad and Tobago Minister of Health, Dr. Fuad Khan gives a grave warning for people to be careful what they eat because of the possible serious health effects from eating unregulated meat such as dog meat. The video is not graphic and was aired on Trinidad and Tobago television.

While Trinidad and Tobago does not have an established dog meat trade, this is an example of how dog meat can be taking place closer to people’s homes than they realize, even when not living in dog and cat eating countries. As Dr. Khan says, large numbers of dogs across Trinidad and Tobago have disappeared without explanation or reason. The dog and cat meat trade has become everyone’s problem, whether we live in dog and cat eating countries or not. Thank you for reading, Michele Brown.

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

www.SayNoToDogMeat.Net

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.
