09/02/2014 A DISTRICT IN NEPAL PLANS TO SLAUGHTER 500,000 ANIMALS THIS NOVEMBER

It happens every fifth November, and it's slated to happen again this year: Gadhimai, the massive, month-long Hindu festival, is set to occur at the end of 2014, and will bring with it the single largest animal sacrifice in the world. Typically, the festival results in the slaughter of an estimated 250,000 to 300,000 animals - mostly pigs, water buffaloes, chickens, goats and pigeons - in honor of the power goddess for whom the ritual is named. According to some reports, the last Gadhimai sacrifice, in 2009, saw the deaths of closer to 500,000 animals.

09/01/2014 QUEBEC GOVERNMENT REFUSES TO RESCUE FOXES IN CRITICAL STATE ON FUR FARM

Authorities from the Quebec Ministère de la Forêts, Faune, et Parcs (Ministry of Forests, Fauna and Parks – MFFP) are refusing to rescue approximately 80 red foxes in distress on a fur farm north of Montreal. Multiple inspections by the MFFP in recent weeks have revealed that the foxes are in critical condition and suffer from serious health problems, including dehydration, emaciation, toe fractures, tail injuries, tooth fractures, ear and eye infections, internal bleeding and neurological issues. Further, the condition of these foxes has been steadily deteriorating. Approximately 10,000 minks in the facility were also found with a variety of health problems. Wildlife experts, veterinarians, the Montreal SPCA and Humane Society International/Canada have indicated applying provincial legislation related to foxes and other wildlife in captivity in order to immediately seize these animals, yet government authorities are refusing to take action.
