4 Sad Facts of Today

This is a male baby chick, in his last moment on earth. Below him is a giant grinder into which he will fall alive because he hatched male, and is therefore useless to the egg industry. His fate is shared by 200 million baby male chicks every year. He lived only for a moment, but he wasn't trash. He was someone.

Orangutans share 97% of our genetics (DNA) and have the intelligence of a 5-to-6 year old human child. Despite this amazing intelligence and similarity to humans, approximately 12 orangutans are killed each day to make way for palm oil plantations.
These gentle, self-aware beings are killed in the most inhumane ways. On a weekly basis, rescue teams find mangled bodies of murdered orangutans in logging sights that have been hacked with machetes, run over by machinery, buried alive and even doused in petrol and set alight.
Mother orangutans have their babies taken from them, crammed into small crates and sold as pets. The mother orangutan is then either killed, or captured and taken to an Indonesian brothel; where she will be used as a prostitute and raped repeatedly each day.
The species is estimated to be extinct in the wild within 10 years if these disgusting acts of genocide continue.

Ignorance Kills. Spread the word!!!!

This horrifying picture says it all.
Hassan was the name of this white rhino bull!!

He was shot multiple times by AK47's. The poachers responsible are ruthless and dangerous men who care for little other than the money they will recieve for their part in this horrific incident. But are they really the ones to blame?
Certainly they are immoral and greedy men who care little for the pain of the animals or the damage to the country's wildlife heritage. Nevertheless they would have no reason to do what they do were it not for the stubborn ignorance of those who use the horn for what they believe are medicinal purposes.
As it is a well established fact that rhino horn does not have any medicinal purposes at all these people are putting themselves or whoever they are treating at risk as well as providing the reason for the senseless and bloody massacre of one of Africa's most iconic animals. Rhino's are critically endangered for no reason other than the archaic and mistaken beliefs of some misguided people on the other side of the world. If that is not tragic then what is?
Perhaps if enough people say it often enough eventually the ripples will reach the areas where they may make a difference. Tell everyone you can think of to tell everyone they can think of!

This amazing picture shows a large number of bags stacked and sealed. All but one of which shows the head of a dog unable to release the rest of his body from the bag. Packages are filled with dogs and cats ready to be placed alive in a crematorium. The savage massacre is taking place in Lysychansk (Ukraine), in order to rid the city of their presence during the European Football Championship in 2012.
