An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language. Martin Buber Please wait for music and then keep clicking the button to view slides
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account? Jean Paul Richter
"The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different. Hippocrates
Deliberate cruelty to our defenceless and beautiful little cousins is surely one of the meanest and most detestable vices of which a human being can be guilty William Ralph Inge
"All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do? Buddha
"One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them Martin Luther King Jr
All the arguments to prove man's superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals. Peter Singer
MILLIONS OF FUR-BEARING ANIMALS INCLUDING FOXES, RACCOONS, MINKS, COYOTES, BOBCATS, LYNXES, OPPOSUMS, NUTRIA, BEAVERS, MUSKRATS, OTTERS AND OTHERS ARE KILLED EACH YEAR ON FUR FARMS BY ANAL AND VAGINAL ELECTROCUTION, AND IN THE WILD BY DROWNING, TRAPPING AND BEATING.
ANIMALS CAN LANGUISH IN TRAPS FOR DAYS. UP TO 1 OUT OF EVERY 4 TRAPPED ANIMALS ESCAPES BY CHEWING OFF HIS OR HER OWN FEET, ONLY TO DIE LATER FROM BLOOD LOSS, FEVER, PREDATION.
TO KILL THE ANIMALS WITHOUT DAMAGING THEIR FUR, TRAPPERS USUALLY STRANGLE, BEAT OR STOMP THEM TO DEATH. ANIMALS ON FUR FARMS MAY BE GASSED, ELECTROCUTED, POISONED WITH STRYCHNINE, OR HAVE THEIR NECKS SNAPPED. THESE METHODS ARE NOT 100 PERCENT EFFECTIVE AND SOME ANIMALS WAKE UP WHILE BEING SKINNED.
You wouldnt club this, would you?
How come you allow this to be clubbed, then?
BABY SEALS ARE REPEATEDLY CLUBBED ON THE HEAD UNTIL THEY BLEED TO DEATH. THEIR SKINNED BODIES ARE LEFT TO ROT IN PILES, WITHOUT EVEN BEING USED FOR THEIR MEAT. SHAME TO THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT THAT REFUSED TO MAKE THE SEAL HUNTING ILLEGAL!
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have repeatedly contacted Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce Knowles and Madonna sending them information packs, photos, videos and complaints about their fur obsessions. THEY HAVE REFUSED TO STOP WEARING IT.
LOPEZ HAS BEEN REPETEADLY ASKED BY VARIOUS ANIMAL ORGANIZATIONS AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO EXCLUDE REAL FUR FROM HER FASHION LINE AND STOP WEARING IT. THROUGH THE YEARS SHE HAS WORN THE SKINS OF EVERY POSSIBLE ANIMAL YOU CAN IMAGINE, ALTHOUGH SHE HAS BEEN SENT PHOTOS AND VIDEO FOOTAGE. SHE HAS BEEN IGNORING THE CHARITIES ON PURPOSE, AND HAS SHOWN AN IMPRESSIVE DISREGARD FOR THE PUBLIC. latinalista.blogspot.com/2005/09/jlos-latest-fur-battle-shows-disregard.html.
She is currently considered to be the most notorious fur-wearer in the show-biz, along with Beyonce Knowles. When asked what she thought about animal-right organizations protesting, she replied I dont think about it at all PETA has even released a video game where you gather points by saving animals from her hands: monsterinfur.asp
Beyonce was sent videos, polite letters and PETA even published a personal full-page open letter to her in Billboard magazine. Finally, two members won an EBay auction to have dinner with her. So they met her, along with her sister and mother (who is the dreadful inspiration and cause for her tacky fur-line)
The charity members asked her : Beyoncé, many of your fans would like to know why you dont care about how minks, foxes, and chinchillas are gassed, strangled, and electrocuted for vanity and if you might have it in your heart to recognize that fur is not only cheap and tacky but also horribly cruel? The members were asked to leave by security. Knowles, of course, insists on wearing fur, despite the amazing volume of hate mail her record company received. ( beyoncedinner.asp)
Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce Knowles are currently consciously promoting a fashion, that involves that little animals like these:
End up like this :
Madonnas luxurious chinchilla fur coat required that 40 of these:
Had to become like this :
How DARE WE find excuses for this :
How DARE WE PROFIT from this:
How DARE WE JUSTIFY this :
Oh yeah, it provides JOBS for people all right!
It brings food to many plates, all right!
To the people that made these GREEDY AND ILLITERATE MONSTERS rich and still SHAMELESSLY defend them:
Ugly people with no hearts and lust for the buck that some have the nerve to worship:
So, to the people that will shamelessly try to defend the fur traders, the fur wearers, and the killers To those that think that they are the superior beings on this planet And to the ones that DARE to ignore animal right defenders and call them names, like extremists (the extremists in the name of humanity have been thousands more):
Here is what some of those naïve animal- right supporters have to reply:
" Shame on such a morality that fails to recognize the eternal essence that exists in every living thing, and shines forth with inscrutable significance from all eyes that see the sun." Schopenhauer's criticism of his fellow man.
"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love. Pythagoras
To insult someone we call him "bestial." For deliberate cruelty and nature, "human" might be the greater insult. Isaac Asimov, Isaac Asimov's Book of Science and Nature Quotations, 1988
We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form William Ralph Inge, Outspoken Essays, 1922
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages. Thomas A. Edison
I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the "lower animals" (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me. Letters from the Earth, 1907 The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creatures that cannot. What Is Man, "Of all the creatures ever made he (man) is the most detestable. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain." MARK TWAIN
People must have renounced, it seems to me, all natural intelligence to dare to advance that animals are but animated machines.... It appears to me, besides, that [such people] can never have observed with attention the character of animals, not to have distinguished among them the different voices of need, of suffering, of joy, of pain, of love, of anger, and of all their affections. It would be very strange that they should express so well what they could not feel. Voltaire, Traité sur la toleranc
If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth - beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals - would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals? Attributed to George Bernard Shaw
The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but rather, "Can they suffer? Jeremy Bentham
"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us *universe*, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty Albert Einstein
The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men. Alice Walker
" The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. A good man is the friend of all living things Mahatma Gandhi
DEATH is not fashionable DEATH is not luxurious DEATH is not profitable
IF YOU DONT FORWARD THIS, IF YOU KEEP SUPPORTING THOSE THAT ENCOURAGE IT, IF YOU TRY TO JUSTIFY IT, YOU ARE EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE SAVING LIVES IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN UPSETTING STOMACKS PLEASE HELP US SAVE THEIR PRECIOUS, INNOCENT LIVES
