    On Monday, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, D-N.J. will introduce a bill to ban all imports of trophies and parts from African lions and other at-risk species into the United States. The bill is called the Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large (CECIL) Animal Trophies Act. Above, Cecil the lion with his cubs.

Not just killed - but shot with a bow and arrow and left in pain for 40 hours until put out of his misery via gunshot. courtesy google imagesThe fact that Cecil was used to tourists and trusted them to some extent, relegates this heinous act to that akin to those characteristic of a canned hunt, which is not even considered a sport by other sport hunters, and an act of extreme cowardice and…

    Cecil the lion, pictured above, was widely photographed and somewhat habituated to a non-threatening human presence in Hwange National Park. Photo by Brent StapelkampCecil the lion is dead because Walter Palmer the dentist is a morally deadened human being. The man traveled clear across the world – from the suburbs of Minneapolis into the pay-to-slay world of Zimbabwe, where dictator Robert Mugabe sells off hunting rights and other natural resources to the highest bidders – for the chance to kill the king of beasts. In this case, the victim was a lion who has been widely photographed and…

  • On Liking Homo Sapiens

    15 Jul 2015 | 12:23 pm
    Many people become involved in animal welfare because they don’t like humans much. No offense to any of you, but homo sapiens is not my favorite species. It is also common for people who have worked in animal welfare for a long time to say that they like people even less as time goes by. Presumably because they see more of the horrible ways people can treat non-human animals. But, after 12 years of doing this, I like people more than before. How can this be? Here’s my secret: I started with very low expectations. The truth is that I didn’t expect to find much good in my…

The amount of pain and suffering caused to the pets and their human companions is unimaginable. It is particularly despicable, if Mr. Menjivar was using the humane society as a shield to deflect suspicion.

    Madeline Bernstein-spcaLA President
    8 Jul 2015 | 10:06 am
    Courtesy google imagesLike most "sport" hunting and canned hunts, there is no "sport" or real bravery in bullfighting. The bull is weakened, confined, repeatedly stabbed (causing great blood loss) by a group of picadors, and practically dead before the matador even enters the arena to finish the job. The matador dances around and essentially kills the pre-killed blood soaked bull. It is not about sport or bravery but show business and bloodlust as evidenced by the fact that there is a premium on fights involving white bulls as blood shows up better on their skin. After all, the color of the…

    It’s well established that malicious animal cruelty indicates a broader social pathology and lack of empathy, and the perpetrators often are indiscriminate in choosing victims – one day it’s a dog or a horse, another day it’s a neighborhood child or just some innocent passerby. Media reports revealed that days before the recent mass shooting in a Louisiana movie theater, the suspect bragged about bashing a cat “on the head with a piece of rebar,” and ranted about his desire to drug sick pets and “finish them off with an ax.” The National Sheriffs’ Association is backing the…
