Attorney for Captain Paul Watson Confirms Sea Shepherd’s Beliefs: Japan is Seeking to Extradite Watson
The Japanese Government is again stopping at nothing in their quest to bring an end to Captain Paul Watson’s efforts to cease their illegal whaling activities. German Counsel for Watson, who departed Germany after being held for 70 days for extradition to Costa Rica, has confirmed the Japanese Embassy submitted a request to the German Foreign Office to extradite Watson to Japan.
Germany had been proceeding with Watson’s extradition to Costa Rica. Sea Shepherd has had concerns that Watson’s life would be in danger or he would be extradited to Japan. Today, Sea Shepherd’s suspicions were confirmed by Watson’s attorney.
“I received confirmation today from Germany’s General Public Prosecutor that Japan filed an extradition request against Paul Watson on July 19th,” said Oliver Wallasch, lead German Counsel for Captain Paul Watson.

Hundebabys zur Adoption freigegeben
Tierschutzaktivisten in Italien suchen Besitzer für 2.500 Beagles, die für Tierversuche aufgezogen und vergangene Woche aus einem Hundezuchtzentrum in der Lombardei gerettet wurden. Das Zentrum Green Hill in Montichiari bei Brescia wurde geschlossen, nachdem die Behörden Tierquälereien festgestellt hatten. Das Zentrum unter Kontrolle des US-Konzerns Marshall lieferte Beagles in ganz Europa aus.
Die Hunde dieser Rasse gelten in der Pharmaindustrie wegen ihres gutmütigen Charakters als besonders geeignet für Versuche. Vorübergehend wurden die Tiere nun den Tierschützern der Region Lombardei anvertraut. Mit Hilfe des Umweltschutzverbands Legambiente werden jetzt Familien für die Vierbeiner gesucht. “Viele Hunde haben wegen ihrer schwierigen Lebensbedingungen Verhaltensprobleme. Wir hoffen aber, dass wir für alle ein neues Zuhause finden”, sagte ein Sprecher von Legambiente.
Seit Monaten forderten Tierschützer aus ganz Europa die Schließung des Zuchtzentrums, vor dem zuletzt immer wieder Demonstrationen…

Serial Killers Hunting Abandoned Pets

There’s something sinister going on in the city of Houston, a crime even more deplorable than the widespread abandonment we have all come to know and dread. It seems that someone, or more likely, a group of people, have been targeting and torturing abandoned animals in a macabre game of cat and mouse.
“After hearing about a horrible puppy massacre on the banks of the San Jacinto river near Houston, I went to investigate,” explains volunteer Rhonda Heffernan. “Upon arriving I found the bodies of five tortured terrier/ chihuahaua mix puppies. Other terrified dogs were hiding in the woods.”
Though the local media is beginning to take an interest in what’s going on here, no one culprit has been identified. And worse yet, it’s suspected that there may be several.
“We have found dogs decapitated, hit by cars, shot with pellet guns and regular guns, dismembered and we have eye witness reports of people running dogs over with 4-wheelers,” Rhonda says with absolute heartbreak. “With the help of a few dedicated volunteers, we have rescued 45 dogs from the two dump sites, but official help is still needed.”
Hank was rescued earlier this month.
Here’s Theo while still hiding in the woods at the dump site. He is now safe.
Yet another pair who were terrified. They were caught in traps and now safely adopted.
A pair of abandoned dogs trapped earlier this month.
The dogs dumped here are absolutely beautiful.
Some of the latest dumped dogs. Two were rescued and the others will be trapped within days we hope, as soon as funds are raised for their care.
The goals of this volunteer group are to:
- stop the abandonment with the help of law enforcment and public awareness campaigns
- rescue any other unfortunate souls, both dogs and cats, that end up at these dump areas
- establish an educational effort in the area
Facebook group here) has placed a billboard near the dumping area and have also had a spay/neuter day with the help of SNAP Houston. Today they need financial help and are eager to accept any animal rescue/advocacy group support from elsewhere in the country.
They’ve turned to the Harmony Fund for help in raising funds to cover the costs of several recently abandoned dogs. Veterinary care is usually quite substantial and includes treatment for an array of injuries as well as common afflictions such as heartworm and mange. Tax deductible donations will go directly to the cost of additional rescues, veterinary care and educational campaigns to put a stop to these crimes.

FDA Allows Pet Deaths to Mount While Awaiting Scientific Certainty, Certainty That has Eluded Them Since 2008
WASHINGTON – July 23 – Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today released the following statement criticizing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for failing to adequately protect domestic pets.
“After a weeks-long investigative trip to China and thousands of reports of sick and dying dogs, the FDA still has no answers and offers pet owners no protection,” said Kucinich.
Constituents reported illnesses in their pets after feeding them chicken jerky snacks, including ‘Waggin’ Train.’ Kucinich then wrote to the FDA demanding strong action and a briefing on their investigation. The FDA, which had known about problems with the…

The confrontation happened on Saturday 21st July in the 600 block of N. Anna Drive.
Video captured by a KCAL-TV crew shows a chaotic scene in which officers fired beanbag rounds as some people ducked to the ground while others scattered screaming. A man is seen yelling at an officer even as a weapon is pointed at him; two adults huddled to shield a boy and girl. Meanwhile, a police dog ran into several people sitting on the grass, including a woman and child in a stroller, before biting a man in the arm.
