AUSTRALIA DECLARA LAGUERRA A LOS CABALLOS: LIBERTA: PETITION


AUSTRALIA DECLARA LA GUERRA A LOS CABALLOS.

El Gobierno de Australia ha autorizado una campaña de caza sobre 10.000 caballos salvajes con argumentaciones tendenciosas y falsas, como “evitar sufrimiento a los animales”.

Ya hace años que desde FFW luchamos contra estos planes que el gobierno australiano suele implementar en defensa de los ganaderos de la zona. Una de las acciones que FFW llevó a cabo fue la creación del Santuario Bonrook donde, en 50.000 hectáreas de territorio salvaje, conviven más de 1.000 caballos en libertad además de numerosas especies de fauna autóctona.

Ellos están a salvo de las campañas de caza. Pero no así los caballos salvajes que habitan otras zonas de este país. Por eso es necesario dejar claro al Parlamento nuestra oposición a estas matanzas injustificadas y crueles.

 Aussie Shame: 4 Million Kangaroos Slaughtered Down Under Per Year.With no humane standards or accountability, kangaroos often die painful, protracted deaths.

 By Jocelyn HeaneyMay 30, 2012Comment.

Eastern Grey Kangaroos are highly adaptable and the most common kangaroos encountered in Australia.

Australia’s Nine News reports that the unregulated Australian kangaroo industry involves untrained farmers and landowners slaughtering a reported 90 million—yes, 90 million!—kangaroos over the past two decades. Like harp seals, of which 300,000 are slaughtered per year in Canada, kangaroos often suffer violent prolonged deaths. A common scenario involves shooting the kangaroo mothers, ripping the baby kangaroos (“joeys”) from their pouches, and stomping on the babies’ heads. … Please,  read whole article there!

Please, note: We wrote a petition unto EU-Parliament to ban Kangaroo-Meat in the whole EU. With us in Europe meat of poor kangaroos are sold as Dog-Food, too.

New South Wales, Australia: 25 dead ponies dumped near cliff

The Sydney Morning Herald

The bodies of 25 ponies with no obvious wounds have been dumped near a cliff in northern NSW, police say.

A tip-off on Saturday afternoon led police to a truck parking bay three kilometres south of Old Ben Lomond Road near Glen Innes.

The officers followed tracks to a nearby cliff, where they spotted the bodies of 25 ponies of various colours and ages in the early stages of decomposition.

There were no obvious wounds on the animals or any other indication as to the cause of their death, police said.
