Best wishes to the “Just married” couple”? ….. Think not!!

~~September 30, 2014~~

“We’ve seen some sick things in our time, hunting and poaching, animal abuse, neglect its all abuse.

Seriously though “Just Married“. Well Scott if this is the way you treat a lady, then frankly you are no man, and for the lady to actually believe this is ethically “moral” then she is just as bad.

We are actually lost for words, its not the first time we’ve seen something like this. Proposals over a dead hunted corpse is one thing, this though is just a smack in the face to Africans. It’s ALL OK though because Scott (last name were leaving out) states after a mortified friend asked “Tell me you didn’t kill that beautiful Zebra”

Scott replies – No. I trained him to lay there for pictures. Seriously though, yes I did. All of it was used. None of it wasted.

It is an animal, not a human.


That kill was far more humane than anything mother nature had in store for him so no need to tell me I’m cruel.

Lions chasing a zebra for food is not natural but killing with a gun and then posing over the dead carcass with a “just married” sign IS ……

We will let you be the judge and jury on this. Frankly we feel sick and are angered over this.

Over and out.”

Israel/Palestine “conflict” …. what about the animals??


~~August 4, 2014~~ 

We claim no credit for this written post/article. It has been posted on the Facebook page for Occupy for Animals.

There is no intent to minimize the loss of human life but the animals have no voice unless humans speak up for them. 



“During times of conflict, the suffering of animals is often overlooked as the world focuses on human casualties. We – at Occupy for Animals – do not. We CAN not! We care for people AND animals, as both are mutually inclusive in a functioning Gazan society.

Mideast Israel Palestinians

FIRST OFF: We make no judgement.

In this article, we have sought to avoid any political or religious conclusions. Our concern is for the people and animals which are mutually inclusive in a functioning Gazan society.

Both sides have their respective rationales for maintaining conflict. We make no judgement. What is unavoidable, however, is not to evidence the gross dis-proportionality in civilian casualties.

As a concern for the forced erosion of Gazan society and as a ‘sealed’ country, the opportunity to restore this infrastructure, we express concern about the loss of animals which are essential to the maintenance and therefore the normalization of a Gazan society.

This is a highly contentious subject and we are aware that this article will invite passionate response from both sides. OFA simply tries to help the people – the veterinarians, conservationists and rescuers – who are trying to help the animals of Gaza upon which their owners depend for livelihood, existence and survival.

The following article is available on a dedicated website, along with the complete list of references, as well as many pictures and videos, and we would suggest that you read the original article to have access to all the many linked information, at:

*(Excellent article)*



The Gaza–Israel conflict, taking place in the region of the Gaza Strip and southern Israel, is a part of the long-term Israeli–Palestinian conflict which began in the summer of 2006 when Israel launched Operation “Summer Rains” in the Gaza Strip.

The air, sea and land strikes by Israel have so far killed at least 1,712 people and injured over 9,080 others, according to figures released on 3rd of August, 2014 by Palestinian sources. Israel has suffered 66 casualties – 63 Israeli soldiers and 3 Israeli civilians.

As the conflict in the Gaza Strip and Israel moved into its third week, the impact of the fighting on Palestinian children has become a heart-breaking signature of the conflict. Reports from Gaza relay stories of shells destroying civilian homes, killing children sheltering within; of tank fire killing a 5-month-old baby; of a strike on a beach killing four young boys who had been kicking around a soccer ball. In Israel, parents hear the first wail of air-raid sirens, grab their frightened children and run for bomb shelters.

Mideast Israel Palestinians


During times of conflict, the suffering of animals is often overlooked as the world focuses on human casualties. War, as practiced by humans, is unknown among other animals, but we drag them into all our wars regardless, either actively as conscripts, or just by destroying them and their homes with barely a passing thought. During times of war, animals are either neglected, injured, killed, left behind, or used as commodities to facilitate the war effort.

Historically, horses, dogs, donkeys, cats, and pigeons have been used to carry soldiers, sniff out bombs, and bring messages across the war zone. Around 8 million horses and donkeys died in World War I and despite technological advances, animal participation is still common in modern day warfare. And more recently, in the Iraq war, bottle nose dolphins were used to find underwater mines, and often got slaughtered by enemy forces in the process.

As the Israeli-Gaza conflicts escalates, it has extracted a grave human toll. However, you won’t see much reporting about the effects of collateral damage. In addition to the innocent lives of women and children taken, there’s very little news surfacing about how animals in the region are being affected.


A reporter wrote:

“The bile-inducing, overpowering smell was the first sign that something was very wrong. Then came the truly distressing sight: dozens of dead cows, some with open infested wounds, strewn across the grounds of a partially devastated farm yard. Most of the animals died as a result of the bombardment of the Sha’af neighborhood, on the eastern edge of Shejaiya, one of the areas to have borne the brunt of Israel’s ground offensive that began on July 17.

With more than 1,700 Palestinians dead – including many women and children – human suffering has been the inevitable focus of Gaza’s more than three weeks of war. Yet the deaths of cattle and livestock – while heart-rending and cruel in itself – points to another cost of the conflict: economic.

Working horses, donkeys and mules are invaluable for cultivating land and transporting goods and people, and in Gaza, like in many places in the world, entire families are dependent on horses and donkeys for their livelihood. The welfare of these animals is therefore crucially important, not only for the health and survival of those animals, but also for the livelihoods of those people dependent on them.”



… and we have wept the tears of a frustrated humanity. Tears of anger and outrage, as we – helplessly – witness the decimation of society, the annihilation of a people.

Most in distant lands have no cognizance, or interest, in the politics of far off places. What is taking place now is a human disaster of enormous proportions. Suffice to say that the world’s fifth biggest military machine is engaged in a targeted destruction of a population of some 1.8 million people – 800,000 of which are children – on a strip of land some 25 miles long and 4 to 7 miles wide. A population which is contained within its sealed borders. They cannot leave; they cannot bring in resources. This has been called ‘the biggest open air prison in the world’. They are now being attacked from land, air and sea.

We are at the very edge – the place where ‘humanity meets inhumanity’.


Israel has suffered 66 casualties – 63 Israeli soldiers and 3 Israeli civilians – whereas the death toll on Palestine’s side is of 1,712 people, with over 9,080 others being injured, according to tallies from the respective sides.

The conflict is grossly and obscenely disproportionate. The analogy here is an elephant claiming it defends itself against a mouse. The mouse can only bite the feet of the elephant, whereas the elephant simply has to raise its foot and bring it violently back to earth. Such is the disproportionate nature of events in Gaza.

This is a basic land where animals form an essential function for transport and agriculture. This is the peoples’ future and whereas all concern is focused on the human dimension, without securing the health and safety of the animals, the future economic infrastructure has no floor on which to walk.”

To start the day …. International “Global” Tiger Day”!!


~~July 29, 2014~~

Dedicated to the Great – Big Cats of the World


The world is losing its Great Cats at a vicious speed. If we lose our apex predators, then we lose a vital part of this Earth. This page was created to help bring awareness and to be a voice for our Great-Big Cat Species. We must come together to help put a stop to this “Out of Control War” to kill our great cats, before it is too late. Once they are gone – there is no coming back.






International Tiger Day, also known as Global Tiger Day, is an annual celebration to raise awareness for tiger conservation, held annually on 29 July.

It was created in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues.


Tuesday, July 29th is International Tiger Day, an annual celebration raising awareness for tiger conservation. Founded in 2010 during the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit, it is an international effort to draw worldwide attention to severely declining native populations of tigers and their ecosystems. It also serves to highlight the tigers who remain, and groups working to save them.

Tigers face constant threats to their survival. Deforestation is decreasing not only habitats but prey. With limited regions where they can live and hunt safety, tigers are facing more encounters with humans. This leads to higher levels of stress which are severely detrimental to big cats. For tigers, their most infamous threat is poaching and sale on the illegal wildlife trade market.

Their skins, bones and other various body parts are consumed for traditional medical or as status symbols. As the economies of consumer countries grow, business for tiger products is booming. Efforts to protect tigers from deforestation and poaching are varied but have a few common elements:

“Our hearts cry. Awful news: a recent tiger count by tiger experts confirmed that there are not 3200 tigers in the wild like in 2013, but only 3000 are now left. Please create awareness with us. Like & Share to create awareness.”


Poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation have reduced the global population of the tiger to less than 3,500 and the pressures continue to mount. Under the current scenario, it is predicted that the tiger may well be extinct within the coming decade.

Celebrating this day is a way to help raise awareness about the many threats tigers face:

Habitat loss
Prey loss
Human-tiger conflict
