• END LIVE EXPORT RALLY – SYDNEY

    19th October 2015

    On Saturday I spoke in support of Animals Australia’s ongoing campaign to end the barbaric live export trade.  Successive federal governments have failed to end the cruelty, to end the suffering, to end the bloodshed.  Currently we have the most avid of supporters of live export as our federal agriculture minister in Barnaby Joyce.  How can a person who personally profits from and represents an industry that profits from animal exploitation and suffering be the overseer of animal welfare and well-being?

    Australia has exported over 160 million animals for slaughter in overseas markets in the last thirty years;  mainly sheep and cattle, though we also export smaller numbers of deer and goats and have exported camels and buffalos.

    These animals’ primary destinations are countries that have no animal welfare laws, standards or codes of practice in place to offer any degree of protection during their handling and slaughter and 80 per cent will have their throats cut whilst fully conscious.

    Education on the intelligence, beauty and sentience of animals is key to promoting a more compassionate and peaceful world.  As well as providing for animals in need of care and comfort sanctuaries will play a huge part in the ongoing education of compassion and empathy for all sentient beings.

    Most sanctuaries run solely on donations from the public and the good will and hard work of volunteers.  Please consider visiting Where Pigs Fly and keep an eye out for their next open day.

  • CONDEMNATION OF NIGHT HUNTING REGULATION CHANGES

    24th September 2015

    The Baird Government has quietly introduced an amendment to the Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment (Native Game Birds) Regulation 2015 (NSW) to allow licenced night hunting of native birds.  This amendment follows swiftly upon Shooters and Fishers MPs voting in favour of the controversial Biosecurity Bill and with the Newcastle Rail Bill poised for a vote in the upper house.

    Recreational hunting of native birds was rightly banned in 1995 but there have been a number of attempts to subvert the ban since then” says Mark Pearson.
