Doberman Cruelty Charges

16 Dobermans, 3 Found Dead, 13 Rescued

13 Dobermans Dogs are now in the care of the Broome County Humane Society after being rescued from terrible conditions.

The Dobermans were found trapped in crates and covered in feces and urine at 200 Shaw Road in the Town of Conklin. The Humane Society and State Police say that is the home of 61 year-old Christine Macan. Animal Cruelty Investigator Tarah Tripp says there was no visible food or water when she went inside. And, she found the remains of three other dogs that had been dead for a while. Macan has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty, which is a felony.

Tarah Tripp says, “The home was unsanitary and uninhabitable for humans and animals. All the dogs were kept in crates and extremely emaciated and had open wounds and were in need of vet care.  The smell inside the home was just overwhelming power smell of feces. The animals and dogs were covered in feces and urine burns.”

In another room, remains of other animals were found. They had been dead so long, the Humane Society couldn’t identify what they were. And, in one of the house’s windows, you can see maggots stacked up on the inside. Several hamsters and a rabbit were also rescued. It will take at least several months to nurse the dogs back to health. When healthy enough, they will be up for adoption.

The Humane Society was already at capacity before it took the Dobermans, so right now they are being housed outside. The organization is asking for the community’s help. The Humane Society says it needs monetary donations and pedigree dog food. If you’d like to help out or adopt, you can stop by its location at 2 Jackson Street in Binghamton.

Homeless Dog Repeatedly Shot in the Face and Blinded

Eva is only a few years old but has spent her entire life as a homeless dog. Trying to find enough food and avoiding dangers of the streets is hard for every homeless cat and dog, especially with the shooting

Eva Homesless Dog Repeatedly Shot and Blinded

Eva Homesless Dog Repeatedly Shot and Blinded

The only thing she had to look forward to in her days is waiting until evening when a kind man put food out each night. Nadim had been looking after Eva ever since she was born and she was very friendly to him.

On 17 April, like almost every night, when Nadim finished work he came with food and Eva was waiting – wanting attention and her daily meal.

The next morning Nadim woke to a terrible sight.

Eva was laying in the bushes near Nadims apartment building, her eyes closed tight, head bleeding, and though she was in obvious pain she didn’t make a noise.

Eva might have known that Nadim would likely be the only person who would help her.

Eva is only a few years old but has spent her entire life as a homeless dog

Eva is only a few years old but has spent her entire life as a homeless dog

All at once we received a Phone Call, Email, and Facebook Post about this poor dog.

Nadim was desperate for help, quickly explaining that it seems like Eva had been shot and needing assistance to transport her to a vet and help with her treatment.Eva was  safely moved to the car and brought to vet clinic.

She was still quiet with blood on her face, and she was shaking from pain or fear.

X-rays showed that she had been shot repeatedly with a pellet gun, pellets were still lodged under the skin of her face and head. This can be treated and she can recover, but the pellets also harmed both of her eyes and Eva might never be able to see again.

She was also heavily pregnant, and about to give birth.

The vet put her on pain killers and antibiotics but had to be careful to protect the unborn puppies. She was resting by herself, scared and stressed out from what she had endured and now being unable to see, but she would be fine.

Later that day when the vet went to check on her one puppy had already been born. Then another, and another, until later that evening six newborn puppies were all nursing and cuddling up against Eva.

Eva and her puppies were taken to a quiet home so she can recuperate from her wounds and the puppies can be safe.

Eva and her puppies were taken to a quiet home so she can recuperate from her wounds and the puppies can be safe.

Eva and her puppies were taken to a quiet home so she can recuperate from her wounds and the puppies can be safe.

Dogs on the street are often shot or poisoned as an inhumane and ineffective way of controlling the population, but Eva was shot and blinded for no reason at all. She was no harm to anyone and was never aggressive.

Eva and her five puppies will require a couple months of care and treatment, and possibly a surgery to remove any of the remaining pellets.

Please donate now to help this family of dogs and they will all be ready for adoption soon.

Son Films Father Clubbing Dog To Death

Sadistic Father Clubs Neighbours Dog To Death in Limoeiro, Brazil

A Bleeding Dog Crying in Helplessness, Fear and Pain Clubbed Repeatedly On Its Head By Man, While Son Films and They Both Laugh.

The Poor Defenseless  Dog Dies After Repeated Fatal Blows By The Killer While Both The Killer and The His Son Videotaping The Murder, As There Both Heard Laughing As If Enjoying The Barbaric  Act.

Unreported in major newspapers in the country or any English media, Houston News reports a shocking crime story that has been made public on blogs in Brazil.

Humans sometimes can be as low and barbaric in reality as these words mean in a dictionary. You might think this, at first, an overstatement about the most “advanced” form of life, as they have been called. But what has been reported from Brazil lately is more than enough to attest the intensity of the statement in question.

The incident caught on tape was viewed in this shocking video of a man killing a dog in vegetation off the road. The bleeding dog is seen crying in helplessness, fear, and pain while the shirtless man clubs it repeatedly on its head and muzzle, his son tapes the video from above.

Laughing While Father Clubs Dog To Death While Son Films

Laughing While Father Clubs Dog To Death While Son Films

The dog soon dies after repeated fatal blows by the killer while both the killer and the guy videotaping the murder laugh as if enjoying the act.

Blogs in Portugese, dated April 23rd, inform that the incident happened in North Limoeiro and the Dog Killer in the video has been identified by the police; however, they are not revealing his identity and calling him a supposed name of Antonio Medeiros; while his son taped the incident.

The blog also tells that the blood was spilled just “for fun”.

The victimised dog is said to be owned by a lady named Ivone Maria of Pond Carnaúbas who, upon identifying the dead body of her pet, went to the civil police in North Limoeiro to “file a complaint” against her neighbour, who according to her account was the one committing the horrid act.

However, As Reported Previously From This Country, POLICE Hardly Takes Interest In Doing Their Duty !!!!!

Here too, they kept prevaricating on the woman’s report until several visits were made to the police station by the lady and an outrage started in the city when the video was posted on blogs and citizens started reacting.

At the time of the latest blog about the killing, the Killer was still at large even though the Police ‘knew’ about his identity.

While updates will be provided on availability from Brazil, to remind readers, North Limoeiro is the same Limoeiro do Norte whose hotels keep inviting foreign tourists to stay there and enjoy their travel and the beauty of its flower bouquets is praised on flower-selling websites.

How Enjoyable Can It Be Staying in a Place Where Police Do Not Arrest Sadistic Killers of Helpless, Innocent Animals?

How beautiful are its flowers, red in the blood of victims of brutality and stinking of it? These and many questions can be raised and should be raised now, for silence over murder is akin to playing accomplice in the crime.

At the moment, only a handful of caring people, like those running Dogs in Brazil, are working for helping the troubled, Victimized Dogs in the country and a lot more needs to be done to save the canines from human neglect and cruelty in the country.

Animals Are Just Like Us

Joanna Lumley, On Why Animals Are Just Like Us

Joanna Lumley: My mother early on taught us to respect all animals, and I mean all animals—not just cats and dogs but rats and snakes and spiders and fish and wildlife, so I really grew up believing they are just like us and just as deserving of consideration.

Joanna Lumley On Why Animals Are Like Us

Q: How did you become a vegetarian?

A: Way back in the 1970s I was eating a steak, and I looked down and for the first time it suddenly looked like flesh to me—like a dead creature. In a flash, I realized that every time I ate any kind of meat, something had been killed for me, and I stopped eating all animals, not just cows and pigs but chickens and fish. I feel so much happier not being a part of the blood chain. It wasn’t too difficult then, but of course it’s so easy now. It’s nice when you happen into a vegetarian restaurant, but really you can find veggie food everywhere. Pastas, salads, a vegetable plate—I actually like ordering vegetarian in a meaty place because it gives them a jolt to come up with something and recognize the demand.

Q: What do you have to say to stores like Fortnum & Mason that continue to sell foie gras?

A: I’ve had my run-ins with department stores, like Harrods, which stopped selling fur coats, but I found some there with fur trim, which is just as disgusting. Foie gras production is appalling—there’s no excuse for selling it. But I would tell people who don’t eat foie gras or veal but eat other meats that chickens and pigs, who are so intelligent, are living a life of hell and are just as deserving of their attention. Now, of course, the holidays are coming up, which means love is in the air and death is on the table. Poor turkeys.

Q: You played an infamous fashionista—Patsy Stone—on Ab Fab. Any comments to real-life fashion editors who push animal skins?

A: It’s sad. I thought we had gotten over this, but when you see the designers and models and fashion editors still featuring fur so callously, you realize that humans are by far the most horrid animals on the planet. I can’t bear people who are so thoughtfully unkind.

Q: What do you think of the campaign to replace The Queen’s Guards‘ bearskin hats with fake fur?

The Queen next to Prince Phillip Wearing a 'Bearskin' Hat
The Queen next to Prince Phillip Wearing a ‘Bearskin‘ Hat

A:I read about the efforts of Stella McCartney and the Ministry of Defence while I was abroad, and I just said, “This is the way to go!” Cruel traditions are hard for some to shake, but I’m thrilled there is progress”

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney

The list of celebrities who have been spotted wearing Stella McCartney’s luxe animal-friendly fashions reads like aHollywood who’s who: Jada Pinkett Smith. Kate Winslet. Charlize Theron.

Could the Queen’s Guards be next?After a faux-fur prototype of a Queen’s Guard‘s bearskin cap was presented during a meeting earlier this week with several Ministry of Defence (MoD) officials, we’re encouraged by the possibilities. Stella, who collaborated with Canadian eco-designer Atom Cianfarani on the prototype, has been working to develop a faux-fur hat that will pass the MoD’s rigorous water-resistance tests.

“Historically, England has a very high regard for animals, so it makes perfect sense that the MoD should continue shedding ceremonial furs from uniforms,” she says.

The new material is lighter and more breathable than bear fur, is less expensive, and of course, no bears were killed to make it. Currently, one bear is killed for every hat that’s produced.

Q: Horse-drawn carriages are banned from the streets of London and Paris but still carry on in Manhattan. Any thoughts on this?

A: People have an old romantic notion about it. I would just say, “Please think again—think of the freezing and boiling weather they are forced to work in, and think of the cramped city stables where the horses are kept.” I wish they would just allow the horses to remain inCentral Park, but I understand that’s hard to achieve with the city. I love the bill aimed at replacing the horse-drawn carriages with Great Gatsby–era cars. That is glamorous!

Q: The EU just postponed the deadline on the ban of cosmetics tested on animals from 2013 to who-knows-when. What do you think of that?

A: I’m so hotly opposed to cosmetics tests, as is everyone who has learned about it—that’s outrageous. There’s no need for this to go on, there never was. There are such sophisticated cell cultures and tissue cultures.

Steve Jobs What He Did For Animals

Steve Jobs His Animal Friendly Work

As the world mourned the loss of the Apple Icon Steve Jobs, PETA has posted a tribute on its website. The Face of Apple, Steve Jobs was a vegetarian and a health advocate. The companies he founded, Apple and Pixar are among the most animal-friendly around. Pixar is known for its pro-animal messages in films such as A Bug’s Life and Finding Nemo, and Apple’s software consistently demonstrates respect for animals, from including feline facial recognition abilities in iPhoto to rejecting iPhone Apps that depict animal abuse, such as iSealClub.

1955-2011

“With Steve Jobs’ passing, animalshave lost an influential ally,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.

“On behalf of the millions of children whom Pixar taught to have empathy for the smallest living beings—and on behalf of the many people who were inspired to follow in Mr. Jobs’ vegetarian footsteps—we at PETA thank him from the bottom of our hearts.”

Hindus pray for ‘Hindu at heart’ Steve Jobs

Hindus have paid tribute to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, saying that he was very “Hindu at heart”

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a condolence message in Nevada (USA) on Thursday, said that he would offer “fervent prayers” for Jobs who was inspired by Hinduism.

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, citing reports, said that Hinduism was a source of spirituality and inspiration for him.

Steve Jobs was vegetarian, known for his kindness to animals and dabbled and explored Hinduism during his trip to India in 1970s.

Steven Paul Jobs, 56, who died on the 5th October.

Steve Jobs served as CEO Pixar Animation Studios (Toy Story), in his Stanford University commencement address in 2005, said:

“I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it.”

In the same address, he talked about “karma”: “You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma…”

Reports suggest that Jobs worked for the video game manufacturer Atari as a technician with the intent of raising enough money for about a year-long spiritual retreat to India in 1970s in search of enlightenment, including visiting Ashram of Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba.

Jobs came back to USA with a shaven head and wearing Indian robes. He regularly walked around his office/neighborhood barefoot.

Beachgoers urged to report endangered leatherback turtle sightings

Endangered Leatherback Turtles are lured to British waters by the huge number of Jellyfish

Beachgoers are being asked to look out for endangered leatherback turtles which are currently visiting UK waters to feed on the huge numbers of jellyfish.

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) wants the public to report any turtles they see during August, the peak time to spot the creatures in UK waters, to see if there are any hotspots for them or areas where conservation measures are needed.

MCS specialists say the turtles are arriving from their nesting grounds in the Caribbean to feed on jellyfish, numbers of which, they believe, are rising, potentially providing more food for the critically endangered species.

Unlike other reptiles, says the MCS, leatherback turtles, which can weigh up to a tonne and grow to three metres (10ft) long, can maintain their own body heat up to 18C warmer than even the cold British summer seas.

This year, the Irish Sea in particular has been “turtle heaven” because of the huge numbers of jellyfish there, said Dr Peter Richardson, MCS’s biodiversity programme manager and turtle specialist.

There have already been a dozen sightings, compared with a recent average of about 20 turtles a summer – but in a good year as many as 60 or 70 turtles may be seen.

Richardson said the Atlantic appeared to have become the last stronghold of the leatherback. Breeding populations of turtles are increasing in the Atlantic while they face extinction in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Their better fortune in the Atlantic could be due to conservation measures to protect their beach nesting sites, massive declines in species such as tuna which feed on baby turtles, and increasing numbers of jellyfish.

Pollution, over-fishing and climate change are among the theories for the increase in jellyfish.

“There are so many jellyfish this year, with lots and lots of reports, particularly in the Irish Sea – it’s turtle heaven, there’s so much food for them,” Richardson said.

“We want to know where and when they occur and if there are any hotspots so we know where they are and can run any protective measures where they occur.”

He added: “The leatherback is the largest of all marine turtle species and at a distance could be mistaken for a floating log, but if you approach them slowly and carefully, once you see their large reptilian head, massive flippers and ridged leathery shell you can’t mistake them for anything else.”

How to Recognise Cruelty

The ASPCA

Signs That an Animal Might Be Abused

Recognising cruelty is simple, right? Not quite, say ASPCA experts. Aggressive, timid or fearful behavior doesn’t always tell the whole story. Animals may appear to be timid or frightened for many reasons other than abuse.

“It’s almost impossible to make conclusions based on a pet’s behavior alone,” says the ASPCA Animal Behavior Center’s Kristen Collins, CPDT. “The best way to tell whether a pet is being or has been abused is to examine him and his surrounding environment.” Check out our list of signs that may alert you an animal needs help:

Physical Signs

Collar so tight that it has caused a neck wound or has become embedded in the pet’s neck. Open wounds, signs of multiple healed wounds or an ongoing injury or illness that isn’t being treated. Untreated skin conditions that have caused loss of hair, scaly skin, bumps or rashes. Extreme thinness or emaciation—bones may be visible. Fur infested with fleas, ticks or other parasites. Patches of bumpy, scaly skin rashes. Signs of inadequate grooming, such as extreme matting of fur, overgrown nails and dirty coat. Weakness, limping or the inability to stand or walk normally. Heavy discharge from eyes or nose. An owner striking or otherwise physically abusing an animal. Visible signs of confusion or extreme drowsiness.

Environmental Signs

Pets are tied up alone outside for long periods of time without adequate food or water, or with food or water that is unsanitary. Pets are kept outside in inclement weather without access to adequate shelter. Pets are kept in an area littered with feces, garbage, broken glass or other objects that could harm them. Animals are housed in kennels or cages (very often crowded in with other animals) that are too small to allow them to stand, turn around and make normal movements possibly with too many other animals.

“Reporting suspected animal cruelty ensures that animals in jeopardy receive prompt and often lifesaving care,” says ASPCA Special Agent Joann Sandano. “By making a complaint to the police or humane society in your area—you can even do so anonymously—you help ensure that animals in need are rescued and that perpetrators of animal cruelty are brought to justice.”

If you see signs of animal abuse, don’t keep it to yourself. Here’s how to report cruelty in your area.

Act Now—Report Animal Cruelty!

Animal cruelty is not only wrong—it is against the law! Abuse of any kind should be reported to the appropriate authorities immediately.

Where do I Report Animal Cruelty?

In NYC: Cruelty situations involving animals in New York City should be reported to the ASPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement department at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4450, or humanel@aspca.org.

IN NJ: If you believe you have witnessed animal cruelty in the state of New Jersey and would like to report it, please call the NJSPCA at (800) 582-5979 or fill out NJSPCA’s online form.

Outside NYC: You will need to find out the name of the persons in your area who are responsible for investigating and enforcing the anti-cruelty codes in your town, county and/or state. These people typically work for your local humane organization, animal control agency, taxpayer-funded animal shelter or police precinct.

If you run into trouble finding the correct agency to contact, you should call or visit your local police department and ask for their help in enforcing the law. If your local police department is unable to assist, you can ask at your local shelter or animal control agency for advice on who to contact to report animal cruelty in your community. To find contact information for your local shelter, check the yellow pages or visit the ASPCA’s searchable database of nearly 5,000 community SPCAs, humane societies and animal control organisations.

Tips for Reporting Animal Cruelty

Once you have found out which law enforcement agent you should speak to, it’s important to provide him or her with a concise, written, factual statement of what you observed, giving dates and approximate times whenever possible. If at all feasible, try to photograph the abusive situation and date your pictures. It would also be helpful to get short, factual written statements from other witnesses.

When you call to report animal cruelty, always make sure to keep a careful record of exactly whom you contact, the date of the contacts and the content and outcome of your discussion. Never give away a document without making a copy for your file! Make it clear to the agent that you are very interested in pursuing the case, and that you are willing to lend whatever assistance you can.

Follow Up if Necessary

If you don’t receive a response from the officer assigned to your case within a reasonable length of time, don’t be afraid to present your information to his or her supervisor and, if necessary, to local government officials, such as the county commissioner, and ask them to act.

If you have witnessed the cruel act yourself, you can go to your local police commissioner and ask to swear out a warrant to summon the accused person to court. Remember that expert witnesses are sometimes necessary in animal cruelty cases. A veterinarian, for example, can sign a statement that it is his or her “expert opinion” that a dog suffers when hit with a chain, is deprived of food, etc. Expert opinions will very often make or break a case, so if you happen to know a sympathetic veterinarian, you may wish to seek his or her assistance and tell the officer that you have expert support lined up for your case.

Animal Cruelty on TV and Film

The ASPCA shares your concern about the media’s depiction of violence and cruelty towards animals for entertainment purposes. Please know, however, that many of these instances are constitutionally protected free speech—and may not even involve a real animal.

If you are offended by something you viewed, we suggest that you contact the network that aired the program or the publisher of the film in question.

You may also wish to contact the American Humane Association Movie and Television Unit online or at (818) 501-0123. This unit oversees the use of live animals in movies and television as part of an agreement with the Screen Directors Guild.

Websites that Depict Animal Cruelty

The Internet delivers an astounding array of images and ideas into homes across the world. But not all of these images are particularly animal-friendly. In fact, some of what is being sold and shown online crosses into the realm of criminal activity. And in some cases, there are laws against showing and selling these images.

To report websites that display acts of cruelty to animals, please contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice.

Questions or concerns about calling in a cruelty complaint? Take a look at our Reporting Cruelty FAQ.
http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/reporting-cruelty-faq.aspx

“Without phone calls from the concerned citizens who report cruelty in their neighborhoods, we wouldn’t know about most instances of animal abuse,” says ASPCA Supervisory Special Investigator Annemarie Lucas, whom you may have seen in action on Animal Planet’s Animal Precinct.
Do you know where and how to report cruelty in your town? Our FAQ provides information on recognizing and reporting animal cruelty, as well as cruelty laws and how to talk to children about this important issue.

About the ASPCA

Who They Are

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.

What They Do

As the first humane organization to be granted legal authority to investigate and make arrests for crimes against animals, we are wholly dedicated to fulfilling the ASPCA mission through nonviolent approaches. Our organization provides local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and serving victims of animal cruelty. For more on our work in each of these areas, pleas visit our programs and services page.
