Cub Petting And Getting Animal Welfare Onto The Agenda

Make NO Mistake – CACH Is Committed To The Lions

Cub Petting And Getting Animal Welfare Onto The Agenda – After a knee jerk reaction to the Captive Carnivore working group exploded on social media, Chris Mercer has written a thoughtful reply to the criticism. I urge you to read it and remain open minded. Think carefully about the South African Government who claims that – “compassion for animals is un-African.”
 
The response on social media to the inaugural meeting of our Captive Carnivore working group has been mostly condemnatory and often downright abusive. The main theme of the criticism is that cub petting and lion farming should be banned and anything less than that amounts to a betrayal of the lions.

Is Compromise For A Future Greater Good Now Verboten

Is Compromise For A Future Greater Good Now Verboten 

The Cub Petting Industry
 
Is Compromise For A Future Greater Good Now Verboten – At the start of the year Chris Mercer of CACH – Campaign Against Canned Hunting – a devoted and long time advocate for lions, met with a number of people to see if inroads might be made in the lion breeding and cub petting industry, through regulations. Make no mistake, this is a very lucrative business – with a “victim” – the cub. The group was named – Captive Carnivores Working Group. Chris was soundly criticized for this initiative. It appears that we are living in an “all or nothing” world. Things have not changed at CACH – their wish is for an entire ban on cub petting and canned lion hunting. In rush to judgement, this point may have been missed. Keeping an open mind might be a good idea. Small steps towards a goal, even if not ideal, are better than no steps!

Trading In Lion Bones For Money

Trading In Lion Bones For MONEY

Shame On All Those Involved

Trading In Lion Bones For MONEY – There is something macabre and evil about the thought of killing healthy, endangered or canned lions for their bones and then exporting them from South Africa – in part or as an entire skeleton to – China, Laos and Vietnam. There is money to be made so the consequences to the lion populations are irrelevant to those involved.

Stop The Dog & Cat Meat Trade – Why Is Toronto Marching

Stop The Dog & Cat Meat Trade – Why Is Toronto Marching

Stop The Dog & Cat Meat Trade – Why Is Toronto Marching. We are highlighting the barbaric dog and cat trade around the world on April 4, 2015. This trade is often illegal – inhumane and savage. The willful and intense torture of these animals – done with a casual attitude and in the name of cultural tradition – is wrong and must be addressed and stopped. There is a belief that the more an animal suffers as it dies – the more tender and delicious the meat will be!
