Their Excuse For Starving Dogs? No Bowls

According to Malaysia Dogs Deserve Better's (MDDB)latest report The Selayang Council had the audacity to say they did not give the dogs at the pound food or water because they had no bowls!!

They had no bowls!! I don't even know how to respond to that. Are these people even human? I don't think so. They must have come out of demon's wombs to callously dismiss their despicable act of torture as if it was not a big deal.

In MDDB's latest email dated February 22nd, it alleged that it heard that the Selayang Municipal Council also refused food brought by another NGO to the pound when it learnt of what was happening there.

Extract from MDDB'e email:

"It shows the arrogance of the Selayang Municipal Council - why did they refuse the food?

Anyone claiming that the MPS is feeding the pound dogs are lying either to cover their posteriors or because they have personal agendas.

One of the persons responsible for this cruelty is an MPS employee named Ernie - contact number: 0136064446. She is the officer in charge of the pound. According to a very reliable sources she prevents even owners from going in to see their dogs.

This woman apparently has a deep hatred for dogs that she enjoys inflicting pain on them. Call her and make it clear to this cruel civil servant, whose salary comes from our tax ringgit, that we will not tolerate her conduct.

Continue to SMS [and email] the councillors and the others [as listed below] as the MPS would be having their full board meeting tomorrow morning [which is today]."

Peta Exposes What Really Goes On At Kentucky Fried Chicken in Malaysia

PETA Asia will be holding a series of demonstrations against KFC in Malaysia and we need your help! Join us in protest against KFC’s refusal to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer in the factory farms and slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including crippling injuries because of cruel breeding practices and the overuse of drugs, having their throats slit while they are still conscious, and being dunked into tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.

Protests will be held as follows:

· Kota Kinabalu (first time!) – Sunday 28 Feb 2010

· Penang – Thursday 4 Mar 2010

· Kuala Lumpur – Saturday 6 Mar 2010

We need your help to make these demos successful! Please contact me if you’re able to help in any of the following ways or know someone who can:

· We need a volunteer who speaks Bahasa Malay to attend each demo. The volunteer would be assisting us in speaking to the public and the media. If you’re not comfortable speaking to the media, we’d love to have you help by passing out leaflets.

· We need volunteers to demonstrate in costumes, hold signs, or pose in cages, at each demo.

· We need volunteers who can make follow-up calls in Malay to media outlets. The calls need to be done on the afternoon before and/or the morning of the demo. The calls are very simple and are just intended to verify that the media outlet has received our news release. We are grateful for any help with media calls—even five calls can make a big difference!

· We need volunteers who can translate our news releases from English to Malay. This would need to be done a week before the demo.

· We need a volunteer who can check out KFC locations in Kota Kinabalu and Penang before we arrive to make sure that they are suitable for demos.

· We need volunteers in Penang and Kota Kinabalu to help us compile a media list of local newspapers, TV stations, and radio stations so we can ensure our events get maximum media attention.

Please reply to this e-mail for more information about any of these projects.

Why is PETA Asia-Pacific targeting KFC Malaysia? Each year, hundreds of millions of chickens raised and killed each year for KFC Malaysia are tortured for their entire abbreviated lives. They are drugged and bred to grow so large that many become crippled under the weight of their massive upper bodies. Many have their throats slit while they are still conscious and are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. KFC Malaysia has ignored the recommendations of animal welfare advisory panel for years.

For all animals,

Orang Asli Attacked Tiger First Probably For the Lucrative Trade In Exotic Animals' Body Parts

THE STAR NEWSPAPER, Tuesday February 9, 2010
Dept: Orang asli was trying to kill tiger, not collect petai

IPOH: The tiger which attacked an orang asli in Sungkai last week did so in retaliation as it had been wounded in a trap laid out by his friends.

Perak Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) officers found in their investigation that Yok Meneh, 47, and another orang asli had entered the jungle on Thursday to kill the tiger which was caught in a snare.

“The victim was not there to collect petai. There were no petai trees there,” its director Shabrina Shariff said.

“He and the other man had gone there with spears made from the bemban tree to kill the animal. They were attacked by the injured tiger which had freed itself from the snare,” she said.

Yok Meneh, who suffered a deep 15.2cm wound on his back and other injuries to his hands and legs from fighting the tiger, told the authorities on Saturday that he was attacked while on his way to gather petai at the Bukit Tapah Forest Reserve.

The next day, Perhilitan officers found the carcass of the tiger about 20m from the site. Its detached left forelimb was still caught in the snare.

According to Shabrina, the orang asli had set up the snare on Jan 25 and the tiger was caught in it on Feb 2.

“On Feb 3, the one responsible for setting up the trap went into the jungle with four other orang asli with shotguns to shoot the tiger.

“They managed to hit the animal in the eye, leg and body and left it to die.On Feb 4, Yok Meneh and another orang asli tried to retrieve the carcass but the tiger was still alive and attacked them,” she said.

After interrogating the orang asli, it was discovered that they had captured and killed other protected animals before.

”One of them admitted that they killed another tiger and a panther before this,” Shabrina said.

Contrary to rubbish media propaganda, tigers don't attack humans. The statistics of an attack is extremely rare and in all those occasions there has been a sound reason for it.

Just like this newspaper report below proves. This poor tiger had to rip out its own limb from a poacher's trap and in all likelihood attacked under severe pain.

Compare this story to another just a day before in an online portal where five tigers had been raised in a house in Indonesia for 25 years and was part of the family with no reports of a single attack.

It is Mankind who is evil. Not animals.

Tiger found dead near attack spot


IPOH: The tiger that attacked an orang asli man at the Bukit Tapah Forest Reserve on Saturday has been found dead.

A team from the Perak Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) found the male tiger with gunshot and blow pipe wounds within 100m from where it attacked the orang asli.

It had also lost its left forelimb.

State Perhilitan director Shabrina Shariff believes the animal could have escaped a trap set by poachers.

“The tiger might have attacked Yok Meneh because it was in pain,” she said yesterday.

“That is why I was surprised to read that the tiger had attacked a human as tigers are normally reclusive animals which keep to themselves,” Shabrina said.

The tiger tipped the scale at 120kg and measured between 1.5m and 1.8m in length. The tiger’s carcass is expected to be taken to the department’s Sungkai office for further checks.

Yok Meneh, a 47-year-old gatherer from the Semai tribe, was attacked while he was on his way to gather petai and suffered a deep wound measuring 15.2cm on his back.

He also suffered injuries to his hands and legs from fighting against the tiger.

Shabrina urged Yok Meneh to lodge a police report on the matter as he was entitled to compensation for being attacked by a fierce animal.

She said the department would recommend to the relevant authorities that Yok Meneh be compensated.

Rimbunan Hijau At It Again

PAPUA NEW GUINEA: Logging Violence and Corruption Flare in Ramu, Madang’s Mighty Rainforests

By Rainforest Portal - a project of Ecological Internet

February 6, 2010


Local landowner initiated court case has shut down logging for two months. The PNG Forest Authority's review of the granting of the right to log to notorious Rimbunan Hijau of Malaysia in Ramu River valley expected soon.

Industry and corrupt government officials pulling out all stops to re-grant permit to this violent and corrupt criminal-enterprise. Massive cash payments and brutal violence – to intimidate communities resisting logging – is rife. Yet local protest to logging continues to intensify in Madang, as do calls to end all industrial primary rainforest logging in PNG.
