PostSubject: Do you care about the earth and animals?   Thu Oct 25, 2007 5:39 pm

So the other day I watched this program on CNN called "Planet in Peril". Basically it talks about the planet, the pollution, the animals in danger... I was amazed at the barbaric treatments animals receive in China.

Poor bears are captured and they extract bile from them while they are sedated... and it's used for medicine which hasn't even been really tested to prove that it really helps... People in chine have Bear Bile Farms and bears are kept in cages. Ranting

Bear Bile Farm

There are many places in the forests there that have these traps and animals (tigers, elephants, bears, all kinds) get captured and suffer so much... they showed this baby elephant who lost part of his leg, it makes me so upset that man do this to the animal kingdom. It seems that a lot of people don't care about the animals and their right to live. There are some that do, but not enough people care to put a stop to these barbaric acts.
Some oceans are filled with traps for miles... killing sharks... and what do they do when the shark gets caught? Well... they cut off their fins and the low lifes just put the sharks back into the ocean letting them sink to the bottom and suffer... not only do the animals in the sea die from this trap, birds who go down to get fish often get caught in these traps mad



There is so much of this going on... to many poachers and others harming the animals go unpunished... the government is aware of what's happening but they focus on other 'more important' issues and soon they forget this is happening while the animals continue to suffer at the hands of these humans.

What can you do? Try and take a little time from your day and stay informed on things dealing with the environment, the animals... even if it's just 15 minutes... by doing a little search on google you find articles or news that tell you what is going on... what you can do to help, what things or products to avoid, etc....
Here is one example:

This kind of abuse is extremely upsetting to me. I can't even begin to understand why people do this. There is absolutely no reason for it. Yet people still continue to do it and get away with it.

I agree, Pam. I can't stand to see an animal suffer. I don't understand how anyone could hurt an animal. Blue

I get sick to my stomach when hearing about animal abuse. Humans can be so creuel. mad

Same thing about the Greyhound race in Florida. Those poor souls are left to starve to death after their racing careers are over..........usually about 3 or 4 years. But the good thing is, there is an organization that rescue them and put them up for adoption. One funny note on the greyhounds, they might be the fastest running dogs, but they're also very mild, quiet, and laziest dogs ever. LOL
:haha:
