Pets on science diet pebbles by Miss Julia

"My dog doesn’t eat meat! “ declared Ann. “Neither does my cat” declared Sarah in a satisfied tone.

Well, isn’t that amazing? Two different pet animals who do not eat meat, both of species associated with carnivorous habits. I guess I would not worry about this if I only heard it twice, but it seems now that most of the pet cats and dogs I know eat pebble shaped bites of a mysterious substance or mixture which is purported to be perfectly balanced and to provide “everything they need” !

Overpopulation and industrial farming - city dweller tells of battery chicken factory night raid

Paul McCartney famously said ‘if slaughterhouses had glass walls everyone would be vegetarian.’ Although I visited a factory farm and not an abattoir (more of a hard labour camp for chickens) and I was already a committed vegan before visiting, the experience certainly cemented my position on animal rights.

The truth about live export

"Australian Governments (Federal, Territory and State), journalists and cattlemen's associations are attempting to cloud facts about Australia's live export trade, known for at least 18 years: Indonesian halal is intended to inflict pain, employing a slow sawing motion to cut throats, rather than the less-than-a-second two-motion movement used by Australian professionals. Moreover, halal knives are invariably blunt. Even if animal rights were legislated in Indonesia, the Indonesian Government is simply too corrupt to maintain regulatory controls." (Tony Ryan)

Traditional Chinese Medicine and the importing of TCM animal products should be banned in Australia

Traditional Chinese Medicine should be made illegal in Australia. It relies on killing endangered animals and animal cruelty, as bad if not worse than scientific animal experimentation.

For example, Traditional Chinese Medicine relies on bile from the gall bladder of bears to supposedly treat fever. It involves extracting it from a live caged bear through the life of the bear. The practice is wicked.

Animal abuse inculcates social deviance

"THE relentless torture of a pet cat that was shot 27 times at point-blank range in the head and neck with an air rifle has outraged animal welfare authorities." [© Cairns Post, 2-Mar-09]

Clearly, the self-confessed wildlife serial killer finds his behaviour with slaughtering kangaroos acceptable to the extent he is educating his son in the same practices from an early age. It is likely he himself learnt this attitude and behavior from his own father. But animal abuse is not normal behaviour. It is immoral and unacceptable in civil society.

Animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people...than are individuals without a history of animal abuse.
