Chloe Ring, 18, aspired to help animals.

Chloe Ring, 18, aspired to help animals.. CHLOE RAIA RING planned to direct her love of animals into a career in veterinary medicine. But the young woman, whose middle name means "blooming flower" in Greek, didn't get the chance. She died of cancer Saturday at the age of 18. She lived in Roxborough-Manayunk. Chloe was indeed a "blooming flower," her family said. "She was a young, sweet, beautiful and vibrant beacon of light," they said. Donations in her memory may be made to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (pspca.org), Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia (acctphilly.org) or Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (alexslemonade.org).

UK - RSPCA Destroys HALF the animals it rescues!

Revealed: RSPCA destroys HALF of the animals that it rescues - yet thousands are completely healthy! Shock figures reveal 3,400 animals put down for 'non-medical reasons'.. Whistleblower claims she shot healthy dogs 'because there was no room'.. Statistics show 10,000 fewer animals were rehomed in 2011. But charity's prosecutions of rogue pet owners leap 20 per cent. Countryside Alliance says charity should lose right to call itself Royal. The animal-welfare charity destroyed 53,000 animals last year – 44 per cent of those it took in – leading critics to claim that the organisation spends too much time on prosecuting cases of neglect and cruelty and not enough on finding new homes for animals. The charity insists the vast majority of the animals were put down to end their suffering, but it admits that last year alone 3,400 animals were destroyed for ‘non-medical’ reasons, such as the lack of space in kennels and catteries.

Call for hunting ban repeal angers public

Call for hunting ban repeal angers public. Link: http://www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk/hunting-ban-repeal-angers-public/story-17710771-detail/story.html READERS have reacted angrily to claims from pro-hunting groups that people want to see Parliament repeal the hunting ban. Following the traditional Boxing Day Brocklesby Hunt, Lord Charles Yarborough said he believed people wanted the "sport" to return, adding many were concerned about an apparent rise in fox numbers since the ban came into force in 2005. However, his comments sparked a great deal of debate on www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk – with the majority condemning his views as outdated.

South Africa' s Jacob Zuma: Pet dogs are part of ' white culture'

Keeping dogs as pets 'is not African'... South Africa's president, Jacob Zuma, has declared having a pet dog is not African, and that black South Africans who buy a dog and take it for walks are copying white culture. Mr Zuma, 70, was speaking at a traditional event in KwaZulu-Natal province, his first public appearance since being re-elected president of the African National Congress a week ago. He described people who love dogs more than humans as "having a lack of humanity", Durban newspaper The Mercury reported.

Outrage: Dog shot to death for playing in the snow.

Outrage: Dog shot to death for playing in the snow. RIP to poor Wrigley killed by - Colins Cutler. As per the EXAMINER News story ( Dec 27th 2012)..if the headline to this story seems to lack any discernible logic, that is because it does. None of which is any consolation to Stacey Ernat, of Des Moines, Iowa, whose beloved four-footed companion Wrigley was shot to death on Christmas Day. The reason given by the shooter: The dog was trespassing on his property. Station WHO reports that the day had started routinely enough. Ernat had gone to the home of friends to celebrate the holiday and had taken her 1-year old chocolate lab with her. Link with story and pictures:

RIP to Brody. PTS by Lino Lake Officials.

RIP to Brody. PTS by Lino Lake Officials. Brody's owner fought for years to save his dog's life, but that battle is now permanently over. The golden retriever/chow mix at the center of the two-year legal battle, was destroyed on Friday following a ruling by the Minnesota Supreme Court which allowed Lino Lakes, Minn. officials to kill him...states Saturday's Los Angeles Times. The four-year-old dog was seized two years ago for biting multiple people, and since that time, was held in a kennel, away from his owner - labeled as a "dangerous dog." Sawh's dog bit three people prior to his seizure. Those bites, according to Sawh, were caused by a dog who was either startled, or who was protecting his property. What do you think? Is Brody's owner solely to blame? Is this just another tragic case of irresponsible pet ownership? Could Brody's - should Brody's owner, have taken more steps to train him, not to bite?

BACKYARD BREEDING...Australian cruelty, please watch the video and share.

Ann Giles breeds dogs and sells them online. In 2010 she was ordered by VCAT to remove all animals from her property except for 5 dogs. She failed to comply. She also has been banned from owning horses, she still has 3. In 2011 this video was filmed and given to authorities. Ann Giles was charged with over 30 cruelty charges. Yesterday in the Bendigo Magistrates court, Ann once again was ordered to remove all animals from her property, however she can now keep 7 dogs. Ann has until February 2013 to 'sell off' the current puppies on the property. Ann must pay the RSPCA $1000 in costs and perform 150 hours community work. We do not believe this is in any way adequate. Ann should not be allowed to keep any animals at all. Ann has a history of failing to comply with court orders and animal cruelty. Justice was not served in Bendigo yesterday. And the real victims are the animals, the forgotten victims, still trapped by legislation that fails to protect them. This is why we need Oscar's Law, puppy factories and backyard breeding should be abolished, there is no excuse and there should never ever be second, third and fourth chances for animal abusers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsDeMCGZ8Lc

Dead nose reindeer.. TELL - FORTNUM and MASON - to stop selling this pate!

DISGUSTING!!!! WILD wolves and bears are being slaughtered just to protect herds of reindeer destined for posh Brits’ dinner tables, The Sun can reveal. Upmarket London store Fortnum & Mason is flogging tins of reindeer pâté for £20 as an “indulgent winter treat”. The cans, emblazoned with “relative of Rudolf”, on the labels, use meat from animals bred on the icy plains of mid and north Sweden by indigenous Sami herders. But outraged conservationists say scores of wolves, lynx and brown bears are being butchered in legalised hunts to protect the herds — and the £15million a year reindeer industry. Last winter, a pregnant wolf was killed with her partner four weeks before she was due to give birth to five pups. She was gunned down by marksmen in a helicopter after straying into reindeer areas during the calving season. Wildlife groups fear the creatures could soon be endangered.

Don't tie up / chain your dogs!

Don't tie up / crate / or chain your dogs up! Dogs are intelligent and social animals. They love, and live for their humans company and affection. When they get habitually tied up or confined all day, everyday, it denies them their right to enjoy a happy and healthy life. Don't they have that basic right? When dogs are confined they can suffer intense boredom, and they will register their upset by protesting with howling or whining for attention throughout the day. Eventually, behavioural problems like aggression can result from habitual confinement. If people could play games with their pets like ‘catch’ with flying plastic discs and hide-and-seek type games this will keep their brain cells active while offering a source of entertainment to them. Confining your pets is harmful to not only their mental health and happiness but it is also harmful for their physical health. Obesity and heart related illnesses can be avoided through giving a healthy lifestyle for your dogs. Make 2013 a kind and more humane year for your pet, and if you see a dog that is habitually tied / chained / crated up each day, let their owner know that this is just not acceptable, it is an act of cruelty!

PETITION: TAKE ACTION! STOP the killing and violence against pets by LAW ENFORCEMENT and AC Officers! LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/800778-justice-for-mary/actions/1718911 WAY TOO MANY INNOCENT FAMILY PETS ARE BEING INJURED OR EVEN TRAGICALLY KILLED ACROSS THE USA by Law Enforcement and AC Officers! WHY IS THIS? well one reason is that some Police- and Law enforcement / AC Officers like to abuse the power that they hold in their jobs. Some of these Police and AC Officers who are supposed to protect and serve the general public, are way to trigger happy and lack the much needed skills to think before they shoot. ALL departments /agencies need to have a -Department's Use of Force Policy - which will specify that the use of deadly force on an animal is only authorized " if it poses an imminent threat of death or great bodily harm to a person." In addition, departments need to purchase equipment to help with the humane capture of dogs and, as a matter of policy need to defer all animal-related incidents to the experts at Animal Control whenever possible. More education on how to deal with animals in non- violent and humane ways needs to be made a mandatory part of their education and training each year.

Consider sending Westfield a polite email as to why you disagree with this. EMAIL- kotara.reception@au.westfield.com PETSHOP. Contact .. Plutopups Pet Shop and leave a polite message that selling animals on-line is supporting cruelty to animals. www.plutopups.com.au http://www.plutopups.com.au/petsforsale http://www.plutopups.com.au/contact/ Update #2 Posted by Jayne Cvetanoski (Cause Leader) on December 17 Here is the response I received from Westfield Kotara in response to my email regarding Pluto Pups francise selling animals. Good Afternoon, Thank you for your email in relation to the opening of Pluto Pups at Westfield Kotara. As you can appreciate, Westfield considers pet stores an important and popular part of retail mix at its shopping centres. It is our usual practice to present any valid concerns regarding any of our retailers to the retailer in question and also invite you to make direct contact with that retailer if you have issues regarding the manner in which they trade. In this instance we have been advised that Pluto Pups abides by local and State government legislation including the Animal Welfare Code of Practice in Pet Shops, The Breeding Dogs and Cats Code of Practice and they are a member of the peak industry body in Australia, the Pet Industry Association of Australia (PIAA) who work in conjunction with the RSPCA and the Animal Welfare League to guarantee the breeding standards and the future of animals purchased from a pet shop. Pluto Pups have advised that they are currently ensuring all their breeders are listed on the new PIAA dogs' lifetime guarantee policy, which ensures that dogs purchased from PIAA member retail stores are sourced from responsible breeders whose operations are subject to independent audits each year and that any dog purchased from a PIAA member that becomes unwanted or abandoned at any age is re-homed. The PIAA advocates that the Dogs Lifetime Guarantee Policy on Dog Traceability & Re‑Homing means consumers can purchase with confidence from a PIAA member retail store, knowing that their dog is not the product of a puppy farm and that should the dog become unwanted at any point in its lifetime, PIAA will ensure the dog is re-homed. At Westfield Kotara, Pluto Pups have advised that they will be selling rescue cats and dogs and will also rehome kittens. They will also be working with welfare organisations to allow Pluto Pups to rehome rescue dogs and kittens in store and have purpose-built the store for this reason. If you would like to discuss this matter directly with the retailer, please contact adoptions@plutopups.com.au, or you can contact centre management directly on 02 4016 2570. Regards Justina Nicholson Marketing Manager Westfield Kotara

While living in Boise, Idaho, and working for a women's shelter, Knapp was witness to many strange and bizarre cases. One aspect that stuck with her was seeing the women and their pets needing a home. "One night, this woman showed up to the shelter with a dog and a cat," Knapp recalls. "We didn't have the accommodations for the pets. We told her that we would have to call animal control for the dog and cat. She declined to stay there, but we were able to give her some financial support for the night. I don't know what happened to this woman or her pets, but it was a situation that resonated with me." Knapp and producer Sheryl Brown have begun work on a feature-length documentary called "The Deadly Link." The film will present the stories of cruelty and compassion behind the scientific evidence that links animal abuse and human violence, which includes domestic violence, child abuse and elder abuse. Production has begun, and the filmmakers hope to have the film out in 2013. Knapp says she wanted to make the film because she is an animal lover. Brown says the purpose of the documentary is to bring the issue of animal abuse in violent homes, and possible solutions, to the attention of a worldwide audience. She says it also will be an educational/training tool for social service providers, police officers, mail carriers, utility meter readers, animal control officers, veterinarians, family physicians, clergy, civic groups and politicians. "Thirty-two percent of battered women report that their children had hurt or killed animals. We need to help stop this cycle," Brown says. "There is a statistical correlation to it all. People who abuse animals are four times more likely to commit crimes. The point of this film is to stop the violence before it stops."

They were given parole with limitations until their verdict of being deemed dangerous dogs–or not was to be read on Dec 6, 2012. This was such a relief and Edith was overjoyed. Happiness and relief that her two gentle giants were coming home. Edith and Jacques fought the CVRD every step of the way as the CVRD and the neighbours tried to have these two dogs put down. Neighbours ganged up and spoke of death wishes for the dogs publically and in court–and yet Edith didn't give up. She held her head high and trusted that her dogs would be found innocent. Edith had not seen her dogs since January 2012 and yet everyday was spent yearning–begging for their return–Edith lived long enough to get her babies temporary reprieve from their solitary confinement at the SPCA (who housed these dogs for the nine months) they had been locked up in different cells denied contact with their owners and each other. Tragically Edith was hospitalized prior to their homecoming–The fight she fought so hard for, the tears she cried, the nights she cried out–please let this stop were not enough and Edith could not hang on any longer. The stress was too much, the agony of loss a cross to heavy to bear. The heart of a mother broken by frustration, pain, loss and agony a heart that stopped beating and thus leaving us to finish her mission and bring these dogs home for good. Edith died with her husband Jacques by her side–knowing that she had done what she could and trusting Jacques and his supporters to finish her mission...so let's make this happen!

PETITION: Justice for Rosie - demand that the people who killed her are held accountable!

PETITION: Justice for Rosie - demand that the people who killed her are held accountable! LINK: Lawsuit filed on two-year anniversary of shooting death of Rosie the dog.. Please demand that action is taken and the people ( City of Des Moines, DMPD Officer M Graddon, Sergeant Wieland, and Officer Dominic Arico ) involved in the death of an innocent New Foundland called Rosie are held accountable. Rosie was pursued, shot and killed by Des Moines police officers on Nov. 7, 2010, as she cowered in blackberry bushes in a back yard after being reported loose on a city street. Among other horrendous things, you will read that after the first shot was fired into Rosie's body, causing her intense pain and suffering, the police officers involved gave each other a "high five" as if to celebrate. The document continues, "Approximately twenty-eight minutes after their arrival at the Wrights' home, Rosie lay dead, having been Tasered twice and shot four times with an assault rifle. At the moment she died, and minutes before, she sat on her haunches, hiding in a thicket of blackberry bushes, in a fenced yard from which she could not escape, approximately 20 yards from the officers, and was not barking, growling, charging, baring her teeth, frothing at the mouth, moving, or threatening any person or animal." Rosie "stared while Wieland gave authorization to Graddon to execute Rosie, which Graddon eagerly obliged by discharging an M4 assault rifle, while other officers stood by, although a catchpole was then available to the officers. After the first shot, one of the officers exclaimed, 'Nice!' The other officers then patted Graddon on the back in a congratulatory fashion." The first shot "fractured Rosie's right, front leg, shattering her humerus, causing her to fall on her side. This shot would not have killed Rosie and veterinary treatment would have saved her life." Graddon then shot three more times, finally shooting her finally. According to the document, "None of the gunshots entered Rosie's skull. As a result, Rosie did not die immediately or without undue suffering. Thus, any alleged attempt to 'euthanize' Rosie failed, and did not comply with standard veterinary, animal control, and law enforcement protocols and standards." At no time during the incident did Rosie "bite, injure, or make physical contact with any Defendant or any other law enforcement officer or City employee." The document includes Claims for Relief, stating that "Graddon unlawfully and unconstitutionally seized the Wrights' personalty, to wit, Rosie, in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution." The document also includes claims of malicious injury to a pet, negligence, and trespass. ** MANY THANKS must be given to - SEATTLE PETS - writer for the Examiner.

EDITOR: On Wednesday morning, hundreds of people gathered at the Marathon County Courthouse to demand justice for Mary, the dog whose life was ended by a series of senseless acts of cruelty, according to police. Each year, Marathon County dispatch receives nearly 2,000 calls about incidents involving cats and dogs. Unfortunately, with all the priorities law enforcement faces, those howling animal calls are too often set aside — and, potentially, the cries of another Mary go uninvestigated. Here is the tricky part: State law makes animal control a municipal responsibility. The county's 62 cities, villages and towns must act in cooperation. That is why I am calling on every local government in Marathon County to adopt a "Mary's Law" before the end of the year. These governments should raise their pet license fees by $5 for spayed or neutered animals and $10 per unaltered pet, and commit that money to an animal control program. There is something citizens can do, too. Please pay your pet license fees. Right now only 1 in 4 dog owners in Marathon County buys a license. We can do better. We cannot continue to let these calls go unanswered.

PETITION: Support an Animal Abuser Registry in Wisconsin..

PETITION: Support an Animal Abuser Registry in Wisconsin.. LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1699433 Wouldn't you want to know if a violent or repeat animal abuser were living next door to you and your family? Animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people and four times more likely to commit property crimes than are individuals without a history of animal abuse. Convicted animal abusers pose a real, ongoing threat to your pets, your family, and your community. A proposed abuser registry legislation in Wisconsin would require mandatory registration and community notification for convicted animal abusers. These laws would make a dramatic difference in keeping offenders away from potential new victims by allowing animal shelters and humane societies to more thoroughly screen potential adopters—and by alerting the public to their whereabouts. Does an Animal Abuser Live in Your Neighborhood? Communities have good reason to be concerned about the whereabouts of animal abusers. Are you getting tired of all the news stories about criminal acts of animal abuse. Each story seems to be worse than the next. Sometimes the abusers are convicted under their state animal abuse laws, but once they've served their sentence there often is nothing to prevent them from adopting or buying another animal. The creation of an animal abuse registry could help to prevent those convicted of animal fighting, malnourishment, aggravated cruelty or abandonment from adopting or purchasing another animal. The animal abusers registry would work much like sex offender registries, requiring convicted animal abusers to register with the city health department. Names would be accessible to law enforcement, pet stores and animal shelters, and failure to register would be punishable offense. Convicted abusers would remain in the registry for five years after a first offense and longer for any subsequent convictions. Stiff penalties would also be put in place for pet stores, animal shelters, their employees and volunteers who give or sell animals to anyone listed in the registry. Currently, nine states legislatures are considering similar legislation. The Animal Legal Defense Fund, and Petabuse.com already maintains a registry of over 16,000 animal abusers that is open to the public and is updated daily. Despite widespread support, however, the legislation has faced resistance from concerned legislators, who question not only whether the registries would actually be effective in combating abuse, but violating the privacy rights of registered offenders. Many abusers often sadly repeat their violent crimes against helpless animals — and then often go on to victimize people as well. Most serial killers begin by victimizing animals. Abuser registries are a good common sense idea. http://exposeanimalabusers.org/downloads/OffenderRegistryModelLaw.pdf PETITION : Justice for Mary http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1696696 FACEBOOK Action group..Justice for Mary https://www.facebook.com/groups/170308406442531/ NEWS STORIES on Mary. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/02/sean-janas-dog-abuse_n_2066178.html http://www.piercecountyherald.com/event/article/id/49154/ http://wsau.com/news/articles/2012/oct/31/march-for-mary-held-in-wausau-wednesday/

PETITION: Mandate that Veterinarians report all cases of animal abuse / neglect in all States. LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1697604 This very sadly is a perfect example of why animal abuse must be reported. Justice for Mary... A 20-year-old Wisconsin woman - SEAN D JANAS - is facing up to 5 years in jail and a $30,000 fine for severely abusing her boyfriend's dog over a period of months and eventually killing the German Shepherd-Labrador mix named Mary. Police suspect Sean D. Janas killed the dog in June 2012 by poisoning her with Draino, bleach and unidentified pills and then slitting the dog's throat. The criminal complaint stated that neighbors told police they had heard Janas yelling at the dog and hitting Mary with the leash. Drug abuse may have also been a factor. Janas also appears to have kept a disturbing journal detailing months of torture. She detailed her hatred of the dog and her desire to kill the dog, revelling in the dog's pain and suffering.

The AVMA recognizes that veterinarians may observe cases of animal abuse or neglect as defined by federal or state laws, or local ordinances. The AVMA considers it the responsibility of the veterinarian to report such cases to appropriate authorities, whether or not reporting is mandated by law. Prompt disclosure of abuse is necessary to protect the health and welfare of animals and people. Veterinarians should be aware that accurate, timely record keeping and documentation of these cases are essential. The AVMA considers it the responsibility of the veterinarian to educate clients regarding humane care and treatment of animals. Despite the recent surge in reporting laws, some veterinarians and professional organizations hesitate to embrace such laws. Veterinarians have concerns over breaking client confidentiality with the owners of their patients as well as concerns about accurately detecting signs of animal abuse. https://www.avma.org/Advocacy/StateAndLocal/Pages/sr-animal-abuse-reporting-requirements.aspx https://www.avma.org/Advocacy/StateAndLocal/Pages/sr-animal-abuse-cross-reporting.aspx http://www.animallaw.info/articles/ddusvetreporttable.htm http://www.aspcapro.org/the-veterinarians-legal-role-in-animal-c.php In recent years, many states have focused their attention on animal abuse, neglect, and cruelty reporting by veterinarians, health care providers, and other social service providers. Currently, AVMA is aware of eleven states that require licensed veterinarians to report certain suspected animal cruelty violations. Section 21 of the AVMA's Model Veterinary Practice Act encourages veterinarians to report animal abuse.

LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1694898 WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DOGS RESCUED FROM THE TRADERS? ...they live on happily ever after..right? .... *** WRONG!!! *** Please read and share this news. A British journalist working on a documentary investigation into what happens to animals that are supposedly freed from those involved in the illicit business finds that in three out of four cases a Vietnamese dinner plate is exchanged for a Thai grave! Photos taken immediately following a raid on a canine meat traders' compound in Sakhon Nakhon province in January show dogs seemingly relieved to have escaped from the tiny cages into which they had been crammed. Wide-eyed puppies can be seen among well-groomed dogs with collars _ which, along with their ease among volunteer workers, suggests many of the animals supplying the illicit trade were people's pets. Some of these images feature in the first few minutes of a documentary that is currently running in instalments as part of a web series on YouTube, Dogs of Thailand, by John Keeble, a former Fleet Street journalist with more than 50 years in the business. Keeble has been coming to Thailand since 1975 and has lived here for six years. His lifelong passion for animal rights drew him first to the Soi Dog Foundation and from discussions with people there to the plight of animals trapped in the dog meat trade. He decided on the documentary series as the best way to get across his message. (The Soi Dog Foundation has also commissioned a documentary about Keeble's investigations into the dog trade that is being produced in the UK and will be available at the end of the year.) The fates of the dogs pictured in the opening minutes of Keeble's documentary, 1,968 of them seized from a trader in Sakhon Nakhon's tambon Tha Rae, serve as a case study answering the question of what happens to dogs once they are ''rescued'' from traders. PLEASE read and share the story, it's very informative and so very sad. Are there ever any happy ending stories from this horrifying cruelty?

LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1692312 Animal protection organization Mercy for Animals reveals Idaho dairy cow abuse.. An undercover video of egregious animal abuse in Hansen, Idaho at Bettencourt Dairies was released to the public on Wednesday by animal protection organization Mercy for Animals. The Chicago based organization's representative worked undercover at the Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen this past summer and secretly videotaped the violent and appalling treatment of cows. The video, and be warned that it is very disturbing, showed workers kicking, punching, and beating cows in the face and body. One employee repeatedly used a pink cane to whip a cow for not doing what the employee wanted her to do. When a cow got her leg caught in the metal bar of the milking stall, a worker repeatedly beat her. A downed cow was cruelly dragged out of the barn by a heavy chain around her neck on a cement floor with a tractor. Another cow cried out in pain while the employee whipped and kicked her.

The video was shot using a hidden camera by a member of Mercy for Animals who got a job at Bettencourt Dairies' Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen for a few weeks this summer. It shows workers at the dairy beating cows with a pink cane as the animals slipped and slid on the wet concrete floor; workers kicking, shoving and stomping cows that have fallen between the metal bars in the milking stalls; and a cow being dragged out of the barn by a chain around her neck as she lies prone on the concrete floor.

PETITION: We demand HARSHER PENALTIES for ANIMAL CRUELTY worldwide!

PETITION: We demand HARSHER PENALTIES for ANIMAL CRUELTY worldwide! LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1691659 Animal cruelty and the case for harsher punishment.. Dear members of Let's turn Facebook Orange for Animal Cruelty Awareness ... please sign and share our petition. I am hoping to get 100,000 member signatures! But in order to achieve this number i need all your help. Please help lobby, create awareness, be vigilant, and let the Lawmakers know that this is an important matter to us all. Animals are often relegated to the bottom of priorities because, as they say, animals don't vote… When we protect our animals, we then are also protecting our society against violence. People who have been known to hurt animals move on to hurt human beings. Widening our circle of compassion to include the animals is not just for sentimental reasons. It makes perfect sense. Animals are connected to people. What happens to them happens to us. More often than not these cases don't reach the courts but the few that do demonstrate our judicial system's failure to treat animal abuse as a serious offence. Magistrates can impose jail terms of up to 5 years but it is extremely rare for a custodial sentence to be handed down in an animal abuse case. Despite extensive evidence linking cruelty to animals to serious violent offences against people, the judiciary continue to treat such crimes as largely trivial matters. If our system is designed to punish as well as prevent serious criminal offences then surely greater attention needs to be paid to those who mistreat animals, particularly those who torture and kill for fun. The direct relationship between animal abuse and violent crime has been recognised by the FBI since the 1970s. Many of the world's most notorious killers have long histories of animal abuse; Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz, Edmund Kemper and Albert DeSalvo better known as the Boston Strangler were all fond of torturing animals. In Australia murderers such as Paul Denyer, Robert Barrett and Ivan Milat are known to have tortured animals long before they started killing people. What greater motivation do our legislators and Courts need to treat animal cruelty with the utmost seriousness? Simply cautioning offenders is not good enough. In the United States of America, there has been a growing trend towards toughening laws to make animal cruelty a felony rather than only a misdemeanour. Penalties for individuals who engage in deliberate animal cruelty have been increased, dramatically in some states. England has similarly strengthened its animal welfare laws but in Australia we continue to treat these heinous crimes as minor offences not worthy of lengthy custodial sentences despite profilers and psychologists telling us that one of the strongest precursors to violent crime including murder is a history of animal abuse. Tough penalties including incarceration must be handed down for serious animal abuse cases. To allow such cruel and sadistic behaviour to keep going unpunished is not only morally reprehensible, it may very well have dire consequences when at some point these offenders turn their rage and fury on the rest of us. Thank you.

ACT NOW for Elephants. Say NO to Ivory. Please join IFAW'S ELEPHANT MARCH! LINK: http://www.causes.com/causes/644857-let-s-turn-facebook-orange-for-animal-cruelty-awareness/actions/1689229 It's Time for action.. ACT NOW for Elephants. Say NO to Ivory. Join in IFAW's efforts to save elephants for future generations. In just the past year alone, more than 3,000 elephants have been killed for their ivory and there is no sign that it is letting up. We can't continue decimating elephants and other species for products nobody really needs. We must come together to reduce demand for ivory in China and other countries, and to protect elephants where they live. And we must ensure that the future for elephants is a more secure one. Educating our children from the youngest ages about elephants and conservation is very important. IFAW's Animal Action education programme, has helped to educate more than five-million young people around the world to take action to protect animals. More than 50,000 students over the past year have signed pledges, created art, and written letters to help IFAW protect elephants. And to date, more than 280,000 people have joined IFAW's Elephant March on social media. Earlier this year, IFAW staff members around the world handed over thousands of signatures to government officials in a coordinated and public display of support for elephant protection. That's the kind of action that can't be ignored -- that's the kind of action that will help save elephants. Children are the key to a better future for animals. We need to educate younger generations about what actions they can take to help protect animals. Visit IFAW's Animal Action web page today and learn about the many ways that young people can join the herd and help support our critical efforts. If you haven't already, please join IFAW's Elephant March. Together we can continue building a wave of support for protecting elephants from deadly poaching and illegal ivory trade. We need to speak up for elephants and other animals that can't speak for themselves. And we need more than just words - we need action. Please act today to help IFAW teach the next generation about animal protection and to help end the illegal ivory trade. IFAW'S animal action page link>> http://www.ifaw.org/australia/
