Death donesnt bring life

Death donesnt bring life

I understand that everyone has there culture but it isn't right to involve an animal!! I have seen that cows have been SLAUGHTERED by people unhumanly. The cow is first dehydrated then killed half way with a thin very small knife. While the animal is still living the people jump on the cow forcing out his or her air!! they start skinning her while she is still living. this happens right next to the rad for everyone to see. THEY DONT DO IT FOR CULTURE; THEY ENJOY SEEING HER SUFFER, this is possible in their unhuman eyes!!!

Cruel Breeder

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 14 December 2013
Reported Date: 11 June 2014

Cruel Breeder

I would like to report a breeder by the name of Mindy Robertson, based in Vanderbijlpark, Sedibeng. She places several ads on Gumtree on a monthly basis and claims to have pups from KUSA registered parents. She sells the pups with a vet certificate, stating that the pups bill of health is 100%.

I purchased such a pup in December and paid for the KUSA papers. After waiting several weeks and having taken the puppy to one of South Africa’s best vets after a seizure, the vet diagnosed the puppy as a water head and should have never been cleared as healthy. The veterinary certificate turned out to be a fake and the KUSA documents never arrived.

After speaking to several breeders, they claimed that Mindy Robertson often calls them and buys pups in bulk from them. One or two of the breeders have stopped selling to her as the believe she is running a puppy mill, selling all sorts of puppy, regardless of their bill of health.

I wanted to take this story to Carte Blanch, as I believe it needs to be exposed.

She has several numbers and names. She also claims to be associated with several breeders, who have denied ever knowing of her.

I trust you will be able to place this information on a public platform where other potential buyers can be warned and hopefully stop this Mindy Robertson from selling further puppies.

Lion cubs for sale on Facebook

Lion cubs for sale on Facebook

Hi I'm not sure where to report this hopefully someone can take it further but about 10 minutes ago there was a man selling 2 lion cubs for R15000 each on a trade/swop Facebook group with photos of these cubs. I commented on his post asking if this was legal and now the post has disappeared. I am concerned about the legalities and the safety of these cubs. If he isn't in the wrong then I apologize to him but he can certainly see why someone would be concerned about a man selling wild animals on a facebook page where people trade clothes and furniture. This is his profile. His name is Edwin Voges I have put a link to his profile.

ELEPHANTS OF EDEN - Animal Cruelty

Location: Knysna
Crime Date: 17 May 2014
Reported Date: 20 May 2014

ELEPHANTS OF EDEN - Animal Cruelty

NSPCA Lays Animal Cruelty Charges

The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) has laid animal cruelty charges against Elephants of Eden, the Knysna Elephant Park, their directors and management including Lizette Withers, in terms of the Animals Protection Act, 71 of 1962 for cruelty to elephants.

This proved necessary after the NSPCA received horrific footage depicting the cruel and abusive training methods employed to control and train baby and young elephants for their future, captive lives in the elephant-based tourist industry.

Wendy Willson, National NSPCA Inspector, has stated that the footage shows elephant calves and juvenile elephants being chained, roped and stretched, shocked with electric cattle prods and hit with bull hooks– all methods used to force these gentle giants to submit to the will of their trainers and handlers. "The elephants show signs of crippling injuries with severely swollen legs and feet, debilitating abscesses and wounds resulting from the abusive use of ropes, chains, and bull hooks. The calculated and premeditated cruelty of this nature that took place at this facility is a far cry from the loving sanctuary image that Elephants of Eden/Knysna Elephant Park like to portray,”continued Willson.

The footage was taken on the premises of Elephants of Eden situated in the Eastern Cape – a property defined as a safe haven for elephants and owned by the same entities who own the Knysna Elephant Park. The facility and its remaining elephants have recently been moved to the Western Cape to join the Knysna Elephant Park.

In simple terms; due to the size, intelligence and nature of elephants, training most often takes place through domination, and the breaking of the elephant's spirit. In order to dominate or force one's will onto an animal such as the elephant, force needs to be applied and thus is a recipe for abuse. Thefootage is proof of this.

A growing number of people in South Africa and around the world have suffered severe and fatal injuries as a result of the rebellion of trained elephants kept in captivity. Elephants of Eden and the Knysna Elephant Park are no exceptions: - at these facilities two elephant handlers have been killed and others have been seriously injured. The most recent case occurred in 2011.

The captive elephant interaction industry is a form of tourism driven by greed and without any conservation benefit. Additionally, no dedicated laws exist in South Africa to govern methods used in handling or training elephants for interaction tourism, and trainers and handlers do not require any formal training or education to be able to work with or handle elephants.

At a recent inspection of the Knysna Elephant Park, even though the NSPCA had a warrant to inspect the premises, we were denied entry by Lizette Withers. We were obliged to obtain assistance from the police in order to effect the warrant. Ms Withers only permitted entry when she was advised that her persistent refusal would lead to her arrest. A charge of obstruction has also been laid against Ms Withers.

The NSPCA subscribes to the credo that "wild animals belong in the wild” and is opposed to the removal of elephants from the wild for domestication purposes. We believe that elephants should not be trained, kept in captivity and/or used for entertainment.

Neglected dog left to suffer by owners

Crime Date: 20 February 2014
Reported Date: 2 May 2014

Neglected dog left to suffer by owners

The tenents of that house was given a puppy in Feb this year. They were informed about its medical needs. To date the puppy has not been dewormed or vaccinated. It has developed rashes and its fur is falling off.  It scratchs its body so hard that it groans as he does it. The owner of the Dog hits the dog with anything in front of her and chases it when it goes near her door and when it passes stool in the yard.

Dog poisoned with two-step

Location: De Doorns
Crime Date: 18 April 2014
Reported Date: 28 April 2014

Dog poisoned with two-step

I recently visited a farm in the Montague/De Doorns area where the farmer is blatantly using carbamates (Temik or Two-step as it is known) to poison animals that are catching his sheep. Unfortunately my dalmatian dog also succumbed to carbamate poisoning on the farm after accidentally ingesting some poison. Carbamates have been taken off the market completely and this farmer is clearly buying it on the "black market". It is also highly illegal to set poison on a farm as per the Animal Protection Act. The farmer's name is Hennie de Kock on the farm Sandvlei. Do not go there.
