Federal Judge Strikes Down Iowa’s Shameful ‘Ag-Gag’ Rule

Federal Judge Strikes Down Iowa’s Shameful ‘Ag-Gag’ Rule

On Wednesday, a federal judge knocked down Iowa’s notorious ag-gag law as unconstitutional, according to Courthouse News Service. The law, put in place in 2012 by the Iowa legislature with the support of the agriculture industry, prevents animal rights activists and undercover journalists from reporting on animal abuse at livestock farms. Finally, U.S. District Judge James Gritzner in Des Moinse has decided the law violates the First Amendment.

“The law has the effect of criminalizing undercover investigations of certain agricultural facilities,” Gritzner wrote in his decision.

Unsurprisingly, the investigations by activists and journalists covered by the law have exposed truly horrific treatment of animals by the industry.

“For example, in 2011, an undercover investigation at Iowa Select Farms produced reports of workers hurling small piglets onto a concrete floor,” Gritzner wrote in his decision. “Another investigation at Iowa’s Sparboe Farms, documented reported mistreatment of hens and chicks. And yet another, conducted by PETA, exposed workers at a Hormel Foods supplier in Iowa ‘beating pigs with metal rods,’ ‘sticking clothespins into pigs’ eyes and faces, and a supervisor kicking a young pig in the face, abdomen, and genitals to make her move while telling the investigator, ‘You gotta beat on the bitch. Make her cry.’”  READ MORE>>

Pigs: Genetic alteration

Not only have pigs been fed Ractopamine for years in the USA, which makes them leaner but may give humans a heart attack.  What’s more the drug is banned in 160 countries including China.  Since China took over Smithfield, the leader in USA hog production, one would only hope that they have eliminated the practice.  However, here is something novel in the Food industry.

2 US companies have teamed up to jointly cooperate on a breeding plan to have male piglets born castrated.  Read More…

Retroviruses Contaminating Pet Vaccines

Could the ballooning rate of sick pets, and a burgeoning multi-billion dollar veterinary industry, relate to the immunocompromising role of feline retrovirus-contaminated vaccines given to millions of animals around the world?

A highly concerning study published in Biologicals entitled, “Endogenous retroviruses as potential hazards for vaccines,” revealed that manufacturing processes employed for animal vaccines have virtually no safeguards against contamination by surreptitious retroviruses which are present within the master seed stock of cells used to produce them. As stated in the study:  Read more…

Veterinarian says pet deaths caused by over-vaccination

EXCERPT: Dr. Robb says that he has seen yearly rabies vaccines make pets vomit, become ill, develop immune disorders, cancers, and has even seen the shot kill the pets of unsuspecting owners. One of the largest problems with veterinary vaccines is that these inoculations are of the one-size-fits-all variety. A 5-pound Chihuahua will receive the same dose of vaccine as a 100-pound bulldog. Does that seem logical to you? read more…

Marijuana for Pets

EXCERPT:

But with Little Kitty becoming increasingly isolated, it was time to give it a try. She got a medical marijuana card and purchased two edible oils made for pets and derived from cannabis that she squirts into her pet’s mouth.

Little Kitty doesn’t hide anymore. In fact, she’s more like her old self: sunbathing on the living room carpet, playing with Ms. Mastramico’s other cat, Valentina. “When I’ve given it to her, she’s never acted high: falling face-first into her food bowl, chowing down,” Ms. Mastramico said. “She comes out and socializes, wants to be in your lap, wants to be petted. It’s a very noticeable difference.”

Other animal lovers who have turned to cannabis-based products to alleviate a host of pet maladies, including seizures, inflammation, anxiety and pain, are reporting similar results. Although they have not been approved by regulators, marijuana-based treatments are being used not only for cats and dogs, but for pigs, horses and domesticated wild animals.

1.5 Billion Birds-GONE – report shows

cpt109360425

The report is the most complete survey of land bird numbers to date and attempts to assess the health of populations on a continental basis. It concludes that, while there are still a lot of birds in the sky, there aren’t anywhere near as many as there used to be.

Evening grosbeaks are down 92 per cent since 1970. Snowy owls have lost 64 per cent of their numbers. The Canada warbler has lost 63 per cent of it population.

Tally it all up and there should be another 1.5 billion birds perching in backyards and flying around in forests than there are, says the report.  Read more…

First ever survey into post-vaccine complications in dogs

        Dogs and Vaccine Damage Within Three Months of a Vaccine Event

Excerpt:  The first, astounding, finding of our initial survey results showed that, overall, 55% of all illnesses reported by participants occurred within the first three months of vaccination. This has risen to 66% in the second analysis. If the vaccine had no bearing on the illness, you would expect to see no more than 25% occurring within that three month time frame.

Dogs contracting the diseases they were vaccinated against:

Hepatitis – 63.6% occurred within three months of vaccination

Parainfluenza – 50% occurred within three months of vaccination (note: it is highly probable that parainfluenza can be caused by vaccines, at 95% confidence interval)

Parvovirus – 68.2% occurred within three months of vaccination (note: at 95% confidence, this satisfies the one-tail test but not the two-tail. More data would allow us to prove whether vaccines cause the disease they are designed to prevent, in this case parvovirus)

Distemper – 55.6% occurred within three months of vaccination  Read more…

Merck Animal vaccine – Seizures, immune failure and death

Dog-Allergies

Dogs suffering allergic reactions and death after being injected with popular Merck vaccine

Seizures, immune failure and death

The leptospirosis vaccine, Nobivac L4, is produced by Merck subsidiary MSD Animal Health, which says that despite its optional status, it is one of the most widely used dog vaccines.

Vets in ‘denial’

According to spaniel breeder Bridgette Evans, every dog she has given the L4 vaccine to has suffered an adverse reaction. Out of one litter of six pups, every single one developed swollen glands, in some cases as big as tennis balls. One of the dogs died within three weeks of the shot.

Carol Blackburn-Harvey, another breeder, said her dog became “overbalanced” and unable to walk three weeks after getting the shot, and died soon after.

“Vets are not willing to admit or are in denial about the risk posed by the vaccine – it can kill perfectly fit and healthy dogs,”  READ MORE…

Dog Microchipping Now Legal Requirement in UK

 

Dog owners throughout the UK are now legally required to have their pets microchipped, or else face a fine of up to £500.

All dogs in England, Scotland and Wales must have the chip by the time they are 8 weeks old. Northern Ireland has had the law in place since 2013.

If local authorities discover a dog who has not been microchipped, the owner has 21 days to comply with the law or be fined.

It is believed that one million dogs in the UK are not currently microchipped.

Scientific studies involving mice and rats show that test animals have developed aggressive and lethal microchip-induced cancerous growths. Scientific reports also show that chipped zoo animals have developed microchip-associated cancerous growths.  Medical reports and scientific studies also reveal that dogs and cats have developed aggressive cancerous growths at the site of their microchip implants.
