Awful: Two Florida Girls Investigated For The Abuse And Death Of A Rare, Endangered, Tortoise

awful two florida girls investigated for rare gopher tortoise abuse

Ugh!

We can't even share the video — it's too hard to watch.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently shared a picture and information about a rare gopher tortoise that was tortured and ultimately killed by two teenage girls from Orange Park, Florida.

The video posted online showed the two girls dousing the tortoise in alcohol before setting it on fire, and then laughing and screaming as the tortoise tried to run away. They also threw the tortoise down the street and stomped on its shell until it broke and the tortoise died.

Turkeys Tortured At Australian Slaughterhouse!!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadBirdsAnimal Cruelty

This is just absolutely HORRIBLE!!

When we take live animals, and keep them in cramped, stressful situations to be used as food, we have a responsibility.

That responsibly is to make sure their lives are ended as humanely as possibly.

At a slaughterhouse near Sydney, Australia there are workers who enjoy to torture turkeys before they're stunned and killed.

The birds are shackled by their feet to a conveyor that takes them to be stunned before they're killed.

The whole point of stunning them is so their death is as humane as possible.

But the workers kick, punch and slam around the birds before they're stunned!!

It's so incredibly horrible! Thank goodness there were security cameras that secretly caught everything!

The footage has been taken to the cops for investigation so hopefully these monsters will pay!

Check out the video (above) to learn all about the horrible abuse, but BEWARE it is violently GRAPHIC!

Letter From Ke$ha To Lady Gaga Faked, But Still True

Filed under: Sad SadLady GaGaKe$haAnimal CrueltyFur

kesha-lady-gaga-fur-fight-real.jpg

There is a letter going around the internet that is supposed to be from Ke$ha to Lady Gaga calling her out on wearing real fur.

This letter has been called "not legit" by Ke$ha's management team, saying she didn't write it, but that doesn't make it any less true.

Ke$ha LOOOOVES animals! She's the Humane Society's Global Ambassador!

The hoax (but still true) letter said:

"It upsets me to see you, a role model to many, especially those who are fashion forward would openly endorse such a cruel and inhumane practice. Animals are skinned and tortured for hours in order to make the fur that you, and other individuals of the upper class, lavishing wear around proudly."

The letter then begs Gaga to change her ways, saying:

"I can not begin to explain the amount of torture, harm and cruelty that is used when handling these animals that are ultimately killed for your pleasure. I hope this note has struck a chord with you and you strongly reconsider your decision to wear fur again."

Again, we know the letter is fake but everything it says still rings true.

Wearing fur is wrong and cruel and should not be done by ANYONE.

Especially someone others might consider a role model.

TAKE OFF THE FUR!

14 Bomb-Sniffing Dogs Died On Way To Afghanistan

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadDog

bomb-sniffin-dogs-killed.jpg

And they weren't killed in an attack.

A $1,000,000 lawsuit was filed over the death of 14 bomb-sniffing dogs who were on their way to Afghanistan.

The dogs died while housed in a truck at Animal Port Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport facility.

This is so sad.

A veterinarian had certified before the dogs left that Tiny, Rex, Rocky, Crock, Dork, Harrie, Stress, Sigo, Rex, Jaco, Kimbo, Kilo, Albert and Bak were all in good health.

The poor doggies weren't able to board a same day flight so they were going to be boarded overnight in the company's kennel.

But when the agents for the dog's owners visited the facility early the next morning they found the animals inside an unattended refrigerated box truck.

When the agents shook the animals' cages, they didn't move.

They found blood on the floor and evidence that at least two of the dogs had tried to escape.

Every single dog was dead.

Absolutely terrible.

We think $1,000,000 will never replace those dogs or undo the torturous deaths they went through, but it seems a good penalty to ensure something like this never happens again.

Shelter Worker Fired Over Inhumane Euthanasia Techniques

Filed under: Sad SadHealthDog

dog-guy-fire-duehtanisa.jpg

It's great this guy was fired but it's so terrible that it happened at all, let alone several times.

He was a veterinary technician at a Los Angeles animal shelter.

Manuel Boado was fired for failing to sedate the dogs he was euthanizing.

He would bring the dogs into a room with other dead animals and insert a euthanizing needle into their jugular veins. None of which is permitted.

Several co-workers testified against him saying that he would yell at the animals and repeatedly jab them with the needle, causing excessive bleeding.

One employee became sick to her stomach when working alongside him.

A co-worker said about the incident:

"By trying to jab them with the needle, he was causing them to bleed a lot. [She] said she had never seen so much blood before or witnessed anyone do what [he] did to the animals."

This man is disgusting. He was adding a "fear factor" to the animals death by not sedating them first.

The departments GM said:

"It is totally unconscionable to add an element of fear if you're about to take an animal's life away."

You're darn right it is!

We're glad he's out of that shelter.

If you're as upset by this as we are, and you're financially ready and responsible enough, you should consider adopting a dog.

Save a life.

PETA Convinces Australian Fashion Week To Lose The Fur!

Smashing news!

A PETA protest in Melbourne caused the Fashion Week down under to ditch fur all together!

During one of the week's fashion shows, protestors stormed the catwalk chanting "fur is dead" while parading anti-fur flyers (watch above).

They did this for about five minutes while confused models and bewildered attendees watched.

Some agreed with them, some yelled at them, but love it or hate it, they accomplished their goal.

Due to the concern for the models' safety, Melbourne decided to pull the rest of the week's fur pieces.

While it's unfortunate for all of the hard work put in by the designers, it's even more unfortunate when animals are brutally murdered for vanity.

We love fashion; we don't love animal cruelty.

Go PETA!
