Breaking news: 2 pigs come home to sanctuary

Breaking news: 2 pigs come home to sanctuary


Raised by a neglectful, abusive man, Molly and Charlie were destined to be eaten. They were kept in separate pens – alone, scared, and malnourished. But because of one brave little pig named Hurley, the man was charged with animal abuse and the pigs were seized. [Read Hurley’s story here]
Hurley’s mom and siblings came to Woodstock Farm Sanctuary and Molly and Charlie have been staying at the Ulster County SPCA while they waited for a permanent home.
Although these two girls were safe and well taken care of, we couldn’t stop thinking about them. We aided the Ulster County SPCA in looking for homes (as our own capacity for pig housing is really maxing out), but months later, Molly and Charlie were still at the shelter. We knew what we had to do….
We did what we do here at the Sanctuary — we figured out how to save lives! After some creative fence and barn engineering, we were able to make space for these two girls.
And on January 18th, they move into their forever home! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see updates on this playful pair.

Giving Molly and Charlie a home at Woodstock Sanctuary is a lifelong commitment that will cost tens of thousands of dollars over the next 10-plus years. Pigs are very expensive animals, which is one of the reasons why this pair couldn’t find a home. But we knew that you would have wanted us to save them since no one else could. You’ve done so much and we need your help now.
Please give today to give Molly and Charlie the life they deserve – the one they should have had from the beginning. A life filled with love and kindness – and of course lots of belly rubs and apples!
Thank you for always helping the rescued residents of Woodstock Sanctuary. You are the reason why we can say yes to so many animals in need. We are truly grateful for your kindness …..http://woodstocksanctuary.org/mollyandcharlie/?mc_cid=59937f0e96&mc_eid=ea10f98fc0

The Dairy Industry’s ‚Dark Secret‘-The Killing of Pregnant Cows and their Calves

Dairy cows are the hardest worked farm animals and mothers. The only reason they produce milk is to feed their calves; but we taketheir milk away and deprive their calves of the love and affection, security that is their right as living, breathing creatures. They suffer abuse, neglect, illness. Separated from all the calves they give birth to. Dairy cows living for up to 25 years. But because of their hard lives, they are worn out by 4 or 5 years old. They will be sent to slaughter, where many cannot even stand up anymore. And there they get a new name: DOWNERS.
They are filled with fear, as they smell the blood of others who have had their throats cut, and struggle to escape when they hear the cries of the other cows. An absolute gruelling life and gruelling death, all inhumane and cruel.
http://youtu.be/kbpQVIcw_Gc /http://wp.me/p1JuJK-4d1 Beirut Public Slaughterhouse, Karantina:
Animals from all over the world end up here. Sheep and cattle are exported live from countries in the European Union such as France, the Czech Republic and Spain (where they have legal protection). Investigations Unit visited Beirut Public Slaughterhouse, and what they found was unimaginable!
“The slaughterhouse is chaos. Everything is coated in a layer of blood, faeces and body parts. The slaughter area is heaving with people, live animals and slaughtered bodies. The sounds and smells are overwhelming.
Cows are left suspended fully-conscious by one leg for long periods of time, their faces resting in pools of other animals’ blood. watch animals being slaughtered all around them Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows exploited and abused for their milk endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation.“
“ A cow had given birth to a beautiful male calf…On the second day after birth, a man took the calf from the mother and placed him in the veal pen in the barn—only ten yards away, in plain view of his mother. The mother cow could see her infant, smell him, hear him, but could not touch him, comfort him, or nurse him. The heartrending bellows that she poured forth—minute after minute, hour after hour, for five long days—were excruciating to listen to.“
A UK survey in the 1990s at one slaughterhouse found that, „of the slaughtered cows, 23.5 per cent were pregnant and 26.9 per cent of these were in the third trimester.“ 23 percent were pregnant.
What Happens to the Calves in Slaughterhouses?
While workers stun the mother-cows, hang them upside down, cut open their throats to let the blood from their body drain out, cut off their legs, and pull off their skin, all that time, there is a calf inside them, fighting and dying a horrifying death. How soon in the process the calf inside dies likely varies according to how developed he or she was and how fast the slaughter process moves. The calf could still be dying, dying but still living, still suffering terribly–at the time of her mother’s dismemberment and disembowelment.
The tragedy doesn´t end here: In addition to the trauma of still being alive inside their mothers during the latter’s death, fetal calves may also be cut from their mother’s womb while still alive, so that their blood can be drained for use – without anesthesia.
„After slaughter and bleeding of the cow at an abattoir, the mother’s uterus containing the calf fetus is removed during the evisceration process (removal of the mother’s internal organs) and transferred to the blood collection room. A needle is then inserted between the fetus’s ribs directly into its heart and the blood is vacuumed into a sterile collection bag. This process is aimed at minimizing the risk of contamination of the serum with micro-organisms from the fetus and its environment. Only fetuses over the age of three months are used otherwise the heart is considered too small to puncture.
The heart of the bovine fetus is functioning during the bleeding process via cardiac puncture. The fetal heart must be beating in order to obtain an adequate harvest of fetalbovine serum (FBS) production by means of cardiac puncture. Blood coagulates immediately upon death.
„For all practical purposes, a fetal calf’s heart must be beating to obtain an adequate harvest for fetal calf serum production.“
The fact that the fetal heart is functioning during the cardiac puncture, indicates the fetus is still alive then and therefore may experience pain because of the needle inserted into its heart, and because of terminal bleeding. As the fetus is never anaesthetised or stunned prior to the performance of a cardiac puncture for FBS harvest, it can be stated that FBS harvest by means of the method described above, represents an ethical problem.
Notice in the background that the mother cow is still periodically kicking while bleeding out, as the calf who was brutally cut from her womb and laid out on the floor just feet away struggles and cries out for his mother. Notice how their blood–so much blood–pools together after his throat is slit too, as they die horrific deaths together, both mother and baby helpless witness to the other’s suffering and violent death (thank you to all those, who shared their thoughts, music, pictures with me to be able to create this petition!)

Pigs gutted and boiled alive at illegal slaughterhouse: state

At an illegal slaughterhouse in West Miami-Dade, pigs were shot, stabbed, beaten with sledgehammers and gutted and boiled while alive, authorities said Wednesday.


An illegal slaughterhouse where pigs were shot, stabbed, beaten with sledgehammers, gutted and boiled all while alive has been closed in Florida, authorities announced Wednesday.
A five-month undercover investigation at the Miami-Dade facility exposed the extreme torture of animals in graphic video footage taken by the Animal Recovery Mission late last year.

After beating the pig the man is seen stomping on it in a pool of blood. Sadly, the abuse seen here was not the only incident at the facility.

On Wednesday the facility’s alleged ring leader, Raul (Freaky) Fernandez, 53, was charged with seven felony counts of animal cruelty.

Among some of the abuse recorded, animals are seen being shot at, dragged and hook-mouthed through the jaw at distances of 150 feet all while still alive, according to the arrest warrant.

Another video obtained allegedly shows a pig being repeatedly bludgeoned with a sledgehammer before stabbed and gutted alive.

As if the allegations couldn’t get more disturbing, authorities reported witnessing a pig being hammered and stabbed before thrown into a boiling vat of water while still alive.

„The pig then continues to demonstrate signs of life while being boiled, whereupon an unknown subject forcibly holds the pig under water with a shovel, indicating the cause of death to be drowning,“ a detective stated.

The bust, dubbed „operation Noche Buena“ because of its timing around Christmas, was just one of several carried out by the Animal Recovery Mission in recent months.
One practice in the area they regularly report investigating is the illegal sacrificing of horses and even dogs for Santeria. …http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/pigs-gutted-boiled-alive-illegal-slaughterhouse-state-article-1.1735883#ixzz34PhYGICQ

Bahamas: Wo man mit Schweinen schwimmt


Bahamas: Wo man mit Schweinen schwimmt

An den Traumstränden fühlen sich auch Hausschweine wohl.
Der Staat besteht aus etwa 700 Inseln, punktet mit idyllischen Traumstränden, interessanten Segelrevieren und Hotels, die Teil der Geschichte des Landes sind.

Für Skipper Tony steht es zweifelsfrei fest: „Die Bahamas, und da speziell die Abaco-Inseln, sind eines der schönsten Segelreviere der Welt“. Und um seinen Worten Nachdruck zu verleihen, setzt er sich seine übergroße Lesebrille auf, checkt das Navigationsgerät und korrigiert den Kurs des 15-Meter-Segelkatamarans um zwei, drei Grad.

Widersprechen will ohnehin niemand. Denn Abaco und seine zahlreichen vorgelagerten Inseln (Cays genannt) bieten wirklich alles, was nicht nur das Seglerherz erfreut. Wunderbare Sandbuchten, aufgeräumte Orte mit den karibisch bunt angestrichenen Häusern, urige Bars und das unendlich vielfältige Farbenspiel des Meeres. Denn von Hellgrün, Hellblau, Lapislazuli bis zu Türkis ist alles möglich. Je nach Wassertiefe, Tageszeit und Sonnenlicht ändern sich die Schattierungen mitunter im Minutentakt. Ein Schauspiel, das man vom Schiff aus stundenlang beobachten könnte.

Foto: /Gartner Herbert
Wären da nicht noch andere Attraktionen. Wie das „Nippers“, eine inselweit bekannte Bar auf Great Guana Cay. Dort tummeln sich offenbar alle auf der Insel angelandeten Schiffscrews und verwandeln die eher schlichte Buschkneipe in eine Art karibischen Ballermann. Die Musik ist dröhnend laut, Alkohol fließt in Strömen und schwitzende US-Freizeitkapitäne und ihr weiblicher Anhang tanzen im Badedress, als gelte es Fitnesspokale zu gewinnen.
Wo Schweine schwimmen
Das schöne an der Sache: Nimmt man die windschiefe Holztreppe am Hintereingang und geht wenige Schritte weiter, kommt man an einen Strand. Und an was für einen. Fünfeinhalb Meilen lang, wunderbarer, feiner Sand und nur wenige Menschen. Was ihm prompt den Spitzenplatz in unserer Hitliste der schönsten Strände einbringt – zumindest so lange, bis wir den nächsten entdecken.

Foto: /Gartner Herbert
Der liegt ein paar Seemeilen weiter am No Name Cay. Die Attraktion der unbewohnten Mini-Insel: Eine kleine Herde von Schweinen, die liebend gerne im Meer planscht. Wissen die Tiere doch, dass es immer etwas zu Fressen gibt, wenn die Touristen vorfahren. Und wer den Rüssel vorne hat, bekommt als erster Futter. Die Touristen freut es, denn mit Schweinen schwimmen hat schon etwas. Mit Delfinen oder Haien kann das ja ohnehin (fast) jeder.
Wie die Tiere an den Strand kommen? Ein Farmer wollte auf der Insel Schweine züchten, verlor aber bald das Interesse und überließ sie ihrem Schicksal. Fischer fütterten die Schweine durch und ein findiger Marketing-Experte kam auf die Idee, dass im Meer schwimmende Schweine nicht nur auf den Exumas (einer anderen Inselgruppe der Bahamas) für den Tourismus förderlich sind.

Foto: /The Moorings/Julian Love
Von den schweinischen, aber wieder zu menschlichen Ansiedlungen. Die wohl ursprünglichste Stadt (458 Einwohner) ist Hope Town, mit ihren überaus gepflegten und bunt gestrichenen Holzhäusern und dem Wahrzeichen der Stadt: Dem rot-weiß-rot bemalten Elbow-Cay-Lighthouse, einem 1862 errichteten und auch heute noch mit Kerosin befeuerten Leuchtturm.

Foto: /Gartner Herbert
Nicht völlig, aber doch anders, ist Nassau, die nur gut 30 Flugminuten vom Inselflughafen Marsh Harbour entfernte Hauptstadt der Bahamas. Leben in der Region doch knapp 250.000 der insgesamt 350.000 Einwohner des Inselstaates. Eine Anzahl, die sich aber innerhalb von Stunden um einige Tausend erhöhen kann. Denn wenn bis zu fünf Kreuzfahrtschiffe fast gleichzeitig im Hafen anlegen, überfluten mit einem Schlag mehr als 10.000 Touristen (meist aus den USA) die dörflichen Strukturen des Zentrums. Den Polizisten in weißer Uniformjacke und mit Tropenhelm entlocken die ausgelassenen Heerscharen freilich nur ein müdes Lächeln.
Womit die adretten Gesetzeshüter genau das verkörpern, was den Reiz der Inseln ausmacht: Britische Höflichkeit und Gelassenheit (die Bahamas waren bis 1973 britische Kronkolonie), vermischt mit karibischer Lockerheit. Motto: Don’t worry, be happy.
