We would like to thank Sen. Lesniak and the animal rights advocates of New Jersey, who worked hard to make New Jersey the first State to ban Traveling Wild-Animal Acts.

Horses are high-strung animals with strong “fight or flight” instincts. Under no circumstances can the slaughter process be made humane for horses. Efficiently stunning these animals with one blow is nearly impossible. Even after multiple blows, they may still be conscious during slaughter. This was the reality when USDA-inspected slaughter-houses operated in the U.S. Americans…

We support tremendous efforts Four Paws International made to save last survivors of Mosul’s zoo and we are hoping that the officials in Mosul will let these animals go home in peace and finally free. Please read what Four Paws International wrote today. UPDATE FROM IRAQ: Yesterday has been one of the toughest days ever…
