Pétition · Romania: Stop the cruel and senseless mass slaughter of your stray dogs now!

(Deutsch: siehe unten) This time we are happy to be able to inform you about a first change in the situation in Rumania - but your help is needed to make it still better and permanently so. As the international animal welfare organization Vier Pfoten e.V. has reported on June 23rd of 2014, the Appellation Court of Bucarest (Rumania) approved a petition submitted by Vier Pfoten and declared the so-called standards of application of the Rumanian stray dog killing law to be invalid. According to this decree IT IS ILLEGAL AS OF NOW TO CATCH AND KILL "HEALTHY" STRAY DOGS IN RUMANIA. However, THE KILLING CONTINUES because according to Vier Pfoten the Bukarest Animal Welfare Supervisory Board ASPA keeps killing stray dogs and refuses to comply with the court decree issued by the Rumanian Appellation Court.

As ASPA stated, they will keep on killing stray dogs until the court has given its reasons for the court decision.

Rebel hero who has 'betrayed' the last of Aceh's orang-utans - Nature - Environment. But, five years on, Mr Irwandi has dismayed supporters by authorising the destruction of a peat swamp forest which is one of the last refuges of the critically endangered Sumatran orang-utan. The move breaches a presidential moratorium – part of an international deal to save Indonesia's forests – as well as legislation protecting a conservation area where the Tripa swamp is located. Aceh lies at the north-western tip of Sumatra, where three-quarters of the Tripa forest has already been replaced by palm oil plantations. Conservationists warn the remainder – home to the densest population of Sumatran orang-utans – is crucial to the ape's survival. Global demand for palm oil is blamed for widespread forest destruction by the two main producers, Indonesia and Malaysia. Mr Irwandi, 51, used to be idolised by many Acehnese.

There are believed to be only 6,600 Sumatran orang-utans left in the wild, with up to 1,000 in Tripa on Aceh's west coast. Orangutan Foundation, Conservation, Research, Education, Rehabilitation.

"This is the first time the great pandas of CCRCGP will be streamed live to a global audience, and we are both excited and deeply honored to bring these incredible creatures to people everywhere," said explore.org founder Charles Annenberg Weingarten.

The HD cameras are initially focused on the four pandas born in 2009 and are set up at two locations at the Bifengxia Panda Base — one that houses females Yaoman and Shenbing and one that’s home to Yaoxin, a female, and Lulin, a male born just days before her. Explore.org plans to introduce a third camera later in the month that will focus on an area of the CCRCGP where five 2-year-old pandas live. Dr. Li Desheng, a doctor at CCRCGP, believes that the international exposure will help raise awareness about panda conservation. "The giant panda has been a Chinese national treasure since ancient times. The pandas can be seen at explore.org/pandas where live footage will be showcased from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. Also on MNN: Are bears purposely committing suicide to protest the horror of bile farms? From animal experimentation to factory farming, humans have done some horrible things to other animals. Few practices are as cruel, though, as bear bile farming.

The practice is so barbaric that bears kept in captivity for bile harvesting are often driven mad by the poor living conditions and cruelty of the process. Now reports have surfaced that some bile bears may be performing hunger strikes and committing suicide as a last respite to protest the cruel conditions they're kept under, according to Wildlife Extra. Consider wildlife campaigner Louis Ng's visit to a Laotian bile farm in 2009. After a few minutes sitting with the bear and mourning her fleeting life, Ng watched as her paw limply reached out from a hole in the cage toward his hand, as if she wanted to hold it. The bear succumbed the following day. Tragically, this bear's story is just one of many. Needless to say, the process is extremely painful for the bears.

Other bears have been known to chew off their own limbs.
