URGENT ACTION NEEDED. Before 8th OCTOBER 2017



Animal Defenders International


.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY AND URGE WALES TO BAN WILD ANIMAL CIRCUS ACTS! The Welsh Government is currently consulting on mobile animal exhibits and wants to know whether a ban on wild animals in circuses should be considered. The answer is of course YES! Please respond to Question 8 of the consultation using our suggested wording no later than Wednesday 8th October. This could very well decide the fate of a circus ban in Wales so PLEASE TAKE ACTION - it will take just a few moments of your time.

Take part here: http://bit.ly/welsh-consultation

Support our campaign to Stop Circus Suffering: www.ad-internationa.org/donate

You only have to copy and paste the following answer to Q8. As per instructions, then give your name. ADI will complete the remainder of the form as a collective petition. Thank you.

http://www.ad-international.org/animals_in_entertainment/go.php?id=4452&ssi=10

Q8.

Answer ; Yes.

Please give your reasons for this.

Yes, a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses should be introduced at the earliest opportunity. Evidence and studies over the past twenty years makes it clear that, even with the best will in the world, travelling circuses simply cannot provide wild animals with the environment they need to maintain health and welfare, and therefore must be banned. Travelling circuses are constantly on the move and, by necessity, animal accommodation must be small, lightweight, collapsible and easy to transport. For the animals, this means long periods with restricted space to move around and barren environments with nothing to interest or engage the animals. Restricted from performing their natural behaviours, animals suffer physical and social deprivation; stress which can result in abnormal, stereotypic behaviours; as well as physical abuse during training and handling. Captivity does not alter their wild nature, causing animals to be unpredictable and dangerous, compromising public safety. A system of licensing and registration cannot protect wild animals from the inherent suffering they endure in the circus and therefore only a ban can safeguard their welfare.

Two bears rescued from outside restaurants in Armenia 2 days ago (there are dozens more, but this is a start)

They have been caged for years as a tourist attraction, fed on scraps and stagnant water, in a vulnerable position when the river floods. In cages without doors, welded together with no access .....

Brown bears Dasha the male, and Misha the female, are now at a sanctuary to be assessed . If they are healthy and recover from their ordeal well, they could eventually be released back into the wild again.

Thought you might like some pics.

Poor bears. Such cruelty goes on in the world Granny. Let's hope that now they get a good life. That's why I like watching the Katmai Bears, they seem to have a good life in Bear terms anyway, all well fed and as long as they stay on the reserve they can't be hunted..

Two more successes this week :

Firstly, after the publics objections were directly emailed to Las Vegas , 2 weeks ago, about there re-introduction of wild animal acts on the strip.

Just released

Animal Defenders International


VICTORY. YOU DID IT! Today the Las Vegas Review Journal announced that the “wild” has been taken out of “Dirk Arthur’s Wild Magic” at Westgate Las Vegas. Arthur had initially announced he would use a bobcat and a snow leopard in the production, which opens on Nov. 15. Instead, the hotel issued a statement yesterday that Arthur was ditching the cats and working sleight-of-hand and illusions with his stage assistants. An ADI investigation had previously exposed the living and performing conditions of Dirk Arthur's big cats and emails poured into the Westgate from ADI supporters urging them to drop the animal acts. THANK YOU. We hope that the duck named Afflack is also being dropped from the show.

The Review Journal says today, quoting the Westgate: “"The show is formatted to fit in an intimate setting, where the audience can enjoy the magic up close and personal. Due to space limitations in the Cabaret, this version of the show does not feature cats,” the statement read. Why anyone felt an exotic-cat show would work at Westgate Cabaret in the first place is anyone’s guess, but it ain’t happening. Not mentioned, of course, is the blowback Arthur consistently receives from animal rights groups — which were already zeroing in on his show at Westgate. At least one, Animal Defenders International (ADI), had already started an e-mail campaign condemning Arthur for his use of exotic animals.”

...and Four Paws announce today :

FINALLY!
After months of negotiations, we have come to an agreement with the authorities of Ninh Binh province. It is certain, that we’ll soon be able to rescue former bile bear Hai Chan and two of her friends from their cages and transfer them to our newly built BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh. Hai Chan has lived on a bile bear farm for more than 10 years now. These 10 long years of suffering can end now – thanks to your help.
Please support our mission to rescue Hai Chan and her two friends Thai Van and Thai Giang: http://bit.ly/save-hai-chan

Rescued, at long last : Dear little Hai Chan. Her front feet had been cut off for medicines.


BEAR RESCUE IN VIETNAM ⚠
We successfully put Hai Chan into anesthesia and undertook a thorough medical check on her. During the ultrasonic we noticed new scares on her gallbladder - a certain evidence that her bile was extracted just shortly. It is so sad to imagine what immense suffering Hai Chan has been gone through over the last decade. It is unbelievable and hard to even bear for us.

Please help Hai Chan and bears like her: bit.ly/save-hai-chan

one hour ago. All three bears arrived at the sanctuary.


BEAR RESCUE IN VIETNAM ⚠
Arrival at our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh. heart emoticon<3 We are more than relieved. All bears have finally arrived at our newly built BEAR SANCTUARY. For the first night, they will stay in their transport crates. Their transport boxes were mulched so all three of them can enjoy a first comfortable night at their new forever home. It is so sad to see that none of the bears has ever seen straw before...

Tomorrow, we will release all of them in our quarantine area, where Hai Chan, Thai Van and Thai Giang will stay for the next couple of weeks until they are fit enough to be released into their permanent outdoor enclosures.

Please help us save more bears in Vietnam: http://bit.ly/bile-bear-rescues

So horrible to think of all the ones left behind. If her paws havebeen cut off, wont the poor thing get very painful stumps when she starts getting friction on them, walking about outside? How disgustingly cruel the perpetraters were.

HAPPY !


Returning to the top of this page , you see the story of three Bile Farm Bears.

Hai Chan, Thai Van and Thai Giang and how they were found and how they were rescued.

You may like to see the latest. It is thought that Hai Chan will be able to manage successfully her life with the disability of not having her paws.

Here she is now :

Hai Chan, Thai Van & Thai Giang have been transferred to their new binnenverblijf! They are visibly refurbished and will soon have access to their country house.


Hai Chan
