Abandoned Animals Brace For Winter

It won’t be long before much of the country is buried under a blanket of white. This is the time of year when negligent animal care can turn into serious, life-threatening emergencies—especially for animals kept outdoors.

When local governments are faced with having to seize a large number of animals, including cats, dogs and horses neglected or abandoned during the winter months, they often turn to the ASPCA for assistance. Through grants and in-person staff deployments, the ASPCA helps sheriff’s offices, shelters and animal control agencies carry out these critical rescue missions.

Agencies around the country rely on the ASPCA’s help an expertise. We have already given 21 large-scale seizure/rehabilitation support grants (total $139,500) to equine rescue groups around the country. We expect these requests to skyrocket as the mercury dips, and winter rescues present unique challenges that can cause expenses to soar.

As you budget your holiday spending and pick out the perfect gifts for everyone on your list, remember the animals who are out there in the cold. Please consider making a donation today to help save at-risk animals this winter and all year long.

Activists Occupy Bullfight Arena - This Is Great!

On August 25th, we reported that police and bullfight fans attacked protesters in Southwestern France after they entered the arena in an attempt to stop or delay the bullfight. Here is raw footage of the brave activists occupying the arena and then being dragged, attacked and pepper-sprayed by the police.

One day, this footage will be in a Museum of Animal rights. In the meantime, we must continue to make history by participating in or supporting non-violent direct action, as shown in this video.

Liam Neeson – while he won’t be getting an academy award for this performance, he might be acknowledged for total fabrication, spin and fantasy.

I finally got around to viewing the recent documentary about NYC’s carriage horses. It is narrated by smooth talking Liam Neeson with his charming Irish brogue. Yes the man is easy to listen to and believe.

For those who do not know, Neeson is a big supporter of the carriage trade and is quite willing to lie through this teeth to make his point.

Horse Industry Honcho Drove Carriage During Heat Suspension

Ignorance of the Law Is No Excuse

The face behind New York City’s controversial horse carriage industry was caught on camera Wednesday giving passengers a ride in the searing heat in apparent violation of the law.

Spokeswoman Christina Hansen began and ended a tour with passengers after the city officially suspended drivers from operating because of the heat.

A video posted on YouTube shows Hansen in Central Park collecting money from passengers after they stepped off her carriage yesterday afternoon nearly 90 minutes after the suspension went into effect.

“I don’t know why she thinks she’s above the law,” said Allie Feldman, executive director of NYCLASS, a non-profit animal rights group, who took the video with her smartphone.

Feldman said there were no other drivers around at the time.

“It shows the lawlessness of this industry. They have no regard for doing the right thing for these animals. What kind of person would do that to an animal?”

Under city law, drivers are required to suspend operation and return horses to their stables when the temperature reaches 90 degrees, as it did Wednesday afternoon.

The suspension ruling was issued at 12:37 p.m. The video is time-stamped at 1:54.

Hansen said she had not seen the video, but did not deny being its subject.

The driver said she picked up several passengers shortly before 1 p.m. for an hour-long drive, but did not realize the suspension had gone into effect.

She said there were other drivers operating at the time.

She said a mounted police officer who would have been responsible for enforcing the ban said nothing to her about the suspension.

“I believed myself to be in compliance with the law,” Hansen said. “I never received notice of suspension from the police officer or anyone else.”

Hansen said she walked the horse, an 8-year-old steed named Sara, to her stable when the trip was over.

India Becomes First Country To Ban Import Of Foie Gras

Thanks to the work of dedicated animal rights activists, India has decided to ban the import of foie gras effective immediately.

London-based Animal Equality petitioned the Indian government with video footage taken at a Spanish foie gras farm that was supplying to Indian restaurants.

S.P. Roy, joint director at the Indian Directorate General of Foreign Trade, had this to say of the ban: "We took consideration of the fact and then we decided that this should be done."

Last year, Mercy For Animals conducted a harrowing undercover investigation inside Hudson Valley Foie Gras, a foie gras farm in upstate New York that supplies to Amazon.com, the world's largest online retailer. Video footage revealed birds being force-fed through metal pipes shoved down their sensitive throats up to three times a day.

Watch the undercover footage:

Though foie gras production is banned in the state of California and most of the European Union, and its sale has been prohibited by scores of retailers, Amazon refuses to take a stand against this egregious animal abuse.

Liam Neeson: Wolf-Eater, Equine-Slavery Advocate

What a scum! When he’s not busy making the same stupid movie over and over again, Liam Neeson can be found running his pro-equine-slavery mouth in New York City. Thinks having green cars would be too crowded but having animals thrown into the congestion is ok? Teamsters must be paying this ass.
