Crews Killing Thousands of Dogs for Sochi Olympic Games

Examiner – According to Friday’s CTV News, in anticipation of the upcoming Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, countless homeless dogs currently roaming the streets are being culled.

Local officials have cited "safety" for visiting guests as the reason for the mass killing; according to the publication, a company has been hired to do the dirty work.

Nightly, roaming dogs are captured in baited traps…then killed with poison.

Rescuers in the area are doing their best to get to the stray dogs first…they try to capture the dogs, get them sterilized and vaccinated, and ultimately adopted into homes.

Unfortunately, the number of un-sterilized, stray dogs makes the rescuers’ job difficult – new litters are constantly being born and the killing crews continue on with their dark, unsavory work.

According to USA Today, last April, the government had stated that they were backing off of their plans to kill an estimated 2,000 dogs, but it appears that the dirty work of killing has simply been transferred to a non-government agency.

Just like in China before the Olympics, animals are being killed and abused in Russia.

Dog found frozen to floor of doghouse during cold snap in PA

What is Wrong With People??

The doghouse where the dog tragically froze to death.January 9, 2014

This has become an ongoing scenario during the summer and winter seasons.

Extreme weather, hot or cold, has threatened or claimed the lives of many animals left outdoors without proper shelter or provisions. We are constantly being warned of the dangers of exposure to these conditions, and are directed to bring our pets inside during these times.

Winter’s frigid temperatures bring frostbite, hypothermia, and possible death for animals. But despite the warnings, we continue to see reports of animals being forced to suffer and attempt to survive.

Ronald Eugene Haines’ dog wasn’t a survivor.

On Wednesday, January 8, around 1 p.m, his dog was found frozen to the floor of its doghouse behind Haines’ home on Front Street in Curtin Township.

Haines, 46, of Centre County, has been charged with cruelty to animals by state police.

Unfortunately, it’s legal in PA for pets to be kept outdoors as long as they have proper shelter, food, and water. But District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller states:

“When the weather gets this low, it’s against the law because you have to have adequate housing of your pet. When it’s this cold, it’s impossible to have housing that’s adequate.”

Haines was issued a ticket for a summary offense. If found guilty, he may face a few hundred dollar fine.

Investigators said neighbors called a state dog warden to report Haines. Miller said in the days leading up to the cold weather, numerous warnings were issued about the dangers of leaving pets outdoors.

“It’s proven what we’re saying. It’s a sad reminder why we’ve been saying it and I’m sad that we failed,” Miller said. “We were hoping to not see this happen."

We ask people to be vigilant and report abuse to your local animal control, police, SPCA, or humane society concerning any animal you find without proper shelter or provisions during extreme weather conditions. Your voice may be the one that saves the life of an animal in need of help.

Don’t delay or wait for someone else to do it — it might end up being too late.

I don’t know about you, but a few hundred dollar fine doesn’t cut it for me!!!

Severely beaten dog found in Columbus is dead

When atrocities happen or have continued to happen (like this one) for years, whether it is against women, children, the elderly, or animals, they reflect on all of us and on us as a culture and a society.  And for those cold hearted souls out there that actually think an animal is property for their owner to treat and abuse as they wish, the realization is that animal abusers are often child, spousal, and elder abusers and bullies in general as well, who often get their start as animal abusers as a first step and then graduate to those crimes if they are not stopped!!  Get-involved!!  We are all God’s creatures and it is each of our responsibilities to stand-up for those weaker than we are or in all abusive situations.

The Examiner:  The pit bull found in Columbus with injuries to his head has passed away.

Injured pit bull is dead

Capital Area Humane Society, who had taken in and was caring for the young dog, announced the news Thursday on Facebook:

“Hearts are heavy as we share the sad news that the male pit bull that was injured in a case of animal abuse last week has died. His condition was such that we could not ensure his quality of life, and we made the compassionate decision to euthanize him."

Capital Area Humane staff and volunteers did all they could to save him. But the male dog found in the Tamarack Circle neighborhood had severe injuries to his head and brain, thought to be caused by multiple blows to the head.

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for beating the Columbus, Ohio pit bull.

Anyone with any information on the dog is asked to contact the Capital Area Humane Society at (614) 777-7387 ext. 250.

This is appalling on many levels but should worry every animal lover from that aspect alone.  This is also not an isolated incident of excessive force used against animals and their owners!!

I am not getting involved in the entire event here… but I am concerned with the over-reaction and excessive force used against the dog!!

Trayvon Martin Supporters Call Cat ‘George,’ Burn It Alive (Photo)

article image

By Dabney BaileyOpposing Views -  Mon, July 15, 2013

George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the decision has sparked outrage in some communities across America. Many feared that there would be riots, but instead of taking anger out on store fronts, at least one Trayvon Martin supporter has allegedly targeted animals.

At 6:38 a.m. on Sunday, a tweet went out from Tevon D’Sean Jackon that read, "RIOT4TRAYVON #JusticeForTrayvon OH SHIEETT.. TYRONE JUST BURNED THIS CAT.. WE CALLED HIM GEORGE AND BURNED HIM ALIVE.”

The tweet also includes a picture of the burned cat, which can be found below. Fair warning: the picture is somewhat graphic, but it is grainy enough that it is difficult to tell that it is even a cat at all. We featured it below.

The tweet has unsurprisingly sparked outrage from the Internet community. One user wrote, “you’re a worthless human piece of trash. Killing a cat to make a point literally makes you worse than the man you say is guilty.”

Another added, “ignorant piece of trash. Zimmerman should have popped you too.”

However, it is entirely possible that it’s all a big hoax in order to drum up drama. Tevon D’Sean Jackson’s current tweet reads, “#GNAA Vice President ~ #RIOT4TRAYVON #EDLRAPECREW, #cut4bieber, #SANDYLOOTCREW & #londonriots Celebrity.. proud /pol/ack.” The GNAA is the Gay N*gger Association of America, which is an anti-blogging trolling organization.

Of course, it is difficult to tell whether or not that really is a cat in the picture. Either way, it had its intended effect. Jackson’s Twitter page is filled with hundreds of angry tweets from other Internet users.

What are your thoughts? Does that picture of possible animal cruelty warrant an investigation from authorities, or is this just another example of Internet trolls adding fuel to the fire?

For me… this is an example of the ‘real’ disgusting human animal(s) torturing a poor defenseless animal.  It certainly also diminishes any sympathy for the perpetrators cause.  Time we put Tevon D’Sean Jackon on trial for 1st degree murder in my book!

Chinese poaching of rare mammal exposed by boating accident

Pangolin

Pangolins are long, lizard-like land mammals covered with scales, which make them look like pine cones when they roll themselves up for protection. (Jefri Tarigan / Associated Press / March 1, 2013)

By Barbara Demick – April 16, 2013, 7:22 a.m. – Los Angeles Times

A boating accident off the Philippines coast has exposed Chinese poaching of a protected species of scaly anteater, or pangolin, prized in traditional medicine.

A 500-ton Chinese fishing vessel, the Min Long Yu, crashed into a coral reef April 8. When the boat was inspected, authorities found more than 2,000 butchered pangolins rolled up and packed into 400 boxes. It is one of the largest hauls of the species, which is subject to an international trade ban.

Pangolins are long, lizard-like land mammals covered with scales, which make them look like pine cones when they roll themselves up for protection.

The meat of this strange animal is considered a delicacy in southern China, while the scales are thought to have medicinal properties to treat asthma and cancer and to induce lactation in new mothers.

Filipino authorities are holding 12 Chinese members of the ship’s crew on charges of poaching and attempted bribery, and they face further charges of damaging the coral reef, which is in a UNESCO-protected marine sanctuary, Tubbataha Reef. Earlier this year, a U.S. Navy ship got stuck on a coral reef in the same marine park and had to be dismantled.

The incident seems likely to add another element of contention between China and the Philippines, already in dispute over sovereignty of fishing waters.

"It is bad enough that these Chinese have illegally entered our seas, navigated without boat papers and crashed recklessly into a national marine park and World Heritage Site," Jose Maria Lorenzo Tan, the chief executive of World Wildlife Fund-Philippines, said in a statement. "However, it is simply deplorable that they appear to be posing as fishermen to trade in illegal wildlife.’ "

The environmental group said it wasn’t sure yet whether the pangolins came from Malaysia or the Philippines.

Dog rescued after being tied to train tracks by ‘confused’ man

Rescued Banjo

Rescued Banjo

Were it not for an eagle-eyed engineer, the world would be minus this very lucky dog. Earlier this month, an engineer driving a Union Pacific train through Mecca, Calif., saw a man stepping away from something he’d left behind: a 10-month-old doggy, tied to the tracks. The emergency braking system stopped the train, and Union Pacific Special Agent Sal Pina arrested the man, 78, who reportedly said his family did not want the dog. Pina said animal-cruelty charges wouldn’t be filed, as the man appeared to be confused or unaware of what he’d done. The rescued pup, who animal services worker named Banjo — slang for old railroad traffic signs — is happy, healthy and looking for a new home.

This ended up being a success story, but it could have been a horror story.  Sadly the numbers of elderly suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s as well as other people suffering from mental and emotional disorders are at an all time high, let alone the people who are innately cruel and animal abusers, plus the clueless who are just abandoning their animals because of monetary problems.  Be vigilant and intercede, report abuse and keep an eye on friends and family members experiencing mental, emotional or financial challenges.  Pets and children often become unintentional victims!!

Pets are fabulous companions for the elderly and those suffering from various illnesses and challenges and pet therapy has become very popular and useful treatment , but we must remember that those animals, who give their love and companionship selflessly, are God’s creatures as well and deserve love and compassion in return.
