NEWS EXTRA -
'Latest news hunt/havoc page' Sheep farmer angered by sick fox hunt. Please spread the word on this so that we can ensure that evil fox hunts are stopped once and for all!! Do it to get more people out to monitor their local hunts and help to save foxes lives. Fox hunters and their equally vile supporters are liars, brutalists and frauds and they need exposing - do it people!! Do it for the poor foxes who right now are at the mercy of these hunt cowards.

Also, check out farming/live exports page, for the latest on the horrific abuse to already traumatised cattle and sheep in a Beirut slaughter-house. Calves suspended by one leg for long periods - animals too traumatised to move are dragged over dead bodies and a floor swimming with blood and littered with body parts. I am screaming inside for it to stop and for justice to be brought to bare against these barbarians.

Three new stories on the General A/R page eg, trying to rescue 600 cats from torture and death in China - horrific abuse of pigs in America and penning/baiting bears, foxes and coyotes in America.

"Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of a civilized society.   Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting, bullfighting and rodeos are all cut from the same defective fabric: violence.   Only when we have become non-violent towards all life will we have learned to live well ourselves."  

Cesar Estrada Chavez - civil rights and labour leader (1927-1993).
"Si se puede"  (It can be done).


NATIVE AMERICAN PROVERB


Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Welcome to WAAC's site - I am dedicated to campaigning against all forms of animal abuse.
This site is a mixture of latest A/R news, both local and international. With the support of like minded and dedicated individuals I aim to raise awareness in relation to many aspects of animal cruelty - including bloodsports, badger culling, intensive factory farming, live exports and religious slaughter. I also campaign to raise awareness against the use of animals for entertainment in the form of circus etc. - and the horrific barbarity of bull fighting.
Please be warned that you will find some upsetting images on this website. Please do not view if you think these stories and images will upset you. Many thanks, Judi (Hewitt)

Holly and me taking a break during a hill trek....

My Mission  My aim is to raise awareness on all animal cruelty issues and to ending the institutional exploitation and abuse of animals by defending their rights and welfare.

I believe that if people knew the extent to which animals are forced to suffer through legalised cruelty, most would adopt a more compassionate lifestyle. Whether it’s abuse by the meat trade, for fur and leather products, animal testing, patronising animal circuses, or blood-sports - there would be no going back to cruelty and the world would be a far better place to live.

I also believe that showing compassion for animals is an important step towards a more civilised society. Studies have repeatedly shown that people who purposely harm animals are more likely to deliberately harm other humans.

IF YOU SUSPECT THAT ANIMALS ARE BEING BAITED WITH DOGS IN AN AREA CLOSE TO WHERE YOU LIVE, THEN PLEASE CONTACT US HERE AT OUR ROCKETMAIL ADDRESS WITH INFORMATION AND WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO INVESTIGATE YOUR CONCERNS.
YOUR IDENTITY WILL BE KEPT SECRET.

if everyone including politicians and reporters in this country read the long, detailed and often harrowing account of hunting - check out the HUNTING/SHOOTING page on this site - then we would not still be fighting to stop fox and stag hunting - these abominations would have been outlawed in 'entirety' many years ago.
I thought I knew all about these awful so called blood-sports but the following transcript rocked me to the core.

Lasting relationship with nature

WHEN it comes to wildlife many people are careless and uncaring. They lock away the nation's art treasures in galleries and museums, visit zoos and take their dogs for walks, but only a minority have a regard for the natural world and its residents. So cars continue to roar along country roads where songbird fledglings flutter between hedges. Other vulnerable young creatures wander about, maybe for the first time beyond the nursery territory. And many become the victims of human blinkered vision. The prodigal's mentality is summed up by his reaction to the rural scene, especially in urban-fringe countryside. Having turned their backs on nature, society has gone into a kind of self-oriented vacuum. Despite the lip-service of government, bureaucracy and big business, conservation is way down the list of priorities. If you doubt this have a look at the track record of our species. The list of endangered plants and animals worldwide is harrowing. To get this in perspective, let me remind you of the 1960s when intensive farming altered the face of the British countryside, and organo-chloride pesticides brought the otter close to extinction. Confronted by the crisis, how did the otter-hunting enthusiasts react? Well, between 1958 and 1963 the 11 otter hunts of England and Wales killed 1,065 otters between them. As late as the mid-1970s the master of a pack of hounds wrote: 'Help me kill a few otters this season and I think next year we will shake pessimists by showing them how many there are about'. Walking along the lane in the Churston countryside, I heard buzzards calling as they circled above the woodland. A family of five were on the wing and I wondered if it was possible that one day there might not be any buzzards in Britain. Yes it is. Once upon a time there were millions [actually it was billions*, AK] of passenger pigeons in the US. They were shot for food and fun. The last one died in Cincinnati Zoo in 1915. The last one, the last of its kind. It's impossible to think of this or any other kind of extinction without a mixture of heartache, anger and disgust. The airborne buzzards were silent. Watching them vanish behind the trees I was aware that no creature or plant is safe from the fate that overtook the passenger pigeon and dodo. But we can help change things if we really want to. Love of nature and harmony with the living world is the only safe way forward for the human race. So let us tread that trail together, aware that conservation is the breath of life.* 'One sighting in 1866 in southern Ontario was described as being 1 mile wide, 300 miles long, and taking 14 hours to pass a single point with number estimates in excess of 3.5 billion birds in the flock.' [Wikipedia]


CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING FILM OF A VERY HAPPY FOX WAGGING HER TAIL AND WANTING HER TUMMY TICKLED - SO VERY CUTE!!

I don't know the background to this beautiful vixen but it does worry me a bit that she is in what looks like a sterile cage - I can only hope that she also has access to an outside pen so that she can enjoy foraging around in the fresh air. Judi

                                      MY SONG FOR THE FOXES
As a former professional singer with bands, I co wrote and recorded a song for the foxes with drummer Roger Burke which I then put together with some fox hunting clips that some might find distressingI
You may find the short film clips of me leaving flowers for these murdered animals over the top - but it made me feel better knowing I had shown them some respect. A respect they were denied by Cwm's terrier-men, game keepers and shooters.

Busy rehearsing with a band for a return to the stage so hope to perform more songs (probably not related to animals - but can't rule them out) for Youtube. Never the less, my fight against animal cruelty will continue with the help of like minded people.

FARMER AND HIS GUN....
Check out the following youtube song by Charlie Simpson. It will put a smile on your face as well as some sad thoughts when thinking about the chosen title, and how difficult it is for our beautiful wildlife to safely grow up and move on into adulthood. Hope you all enjoy.

“Isn’t man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out a card praying for ‘Peace on Earth.’” - C. David Coat

MEET WAAC'S NEWEST PATRON, BRAZILIAN ROCK MUSICIAN, JOEY SUMMER.
Joey is very dedicated to the cause of animal rights and ending the suffering of our fellow creatures.
A brilliant musician, he never forgets to mention his fight for animals in almost every interview he does with rock magazine's and radio stations worldwide.
Whereas most famous musicians who fight for animals appear to place their lovely careers above that of their own moral thinking - with Joey, the animals come first - so on behalf of the animals and all those angels who fight valiently, thankyou Joey, you are one in a million.

A trillion thanks for the mention on your latest CD 'One bite from Paradise' - I can't wait to hear it Joey!.
Judi
 

I would like to share with all ''WAAC'' readers worldwide a few words posted on my official website about my relationship with this beautifull campaign.
All the best.
/Joey
''I am very honored and blessed more than ever, because everytime I have the chance to express my passion for the animals and all the rights they have or should have, I feel myself a little bit more closer to God. We don't have the right to inflict any pain or mistreatment to them. People may ask what a Brazilian musician who lives so far from the reality in Wales has to say or offer? Well, I should to say that I am trying do to something and if I am able to do something, it means that you can do more just getting involved in animal causes in Wales or in any other part of the world. The animal wild life may change from place to place but they feel the same that other animals are able to feel in Brazil, Mexico, Italy, EUA or even in Wales, don't you think? This cause belongs to all of us. Also, they are able to feel exactly the same what WE feel, like; pain, sorrow, cold, lonelyness and we have the same world to share with them and we need to do this with respect and tenderness. We deserve to live in peace and they deserves the same thing. Thanks to my dear Judi Hewitt for the chance to be their voice wherever I go and congratulations for all your efforts, always fighting for them, trying to protect them. God bless you and all the good people from WALES who say NO to the cruelty. We're together on this''

Meet WAAC patron Rev James Thompson.

The Reverend James Thompson with the support of his devoted wife Doreen, have worked tirelessly to promote kindness to all animals. The Reverend felt so strongly that animals deserve a voice, he set up his own organisation, 'Christians Against all Animal Abuse'. He master minded animal blessing services throughout North Wales and I was witness to some of his amazing speeches during the services he held. I remember watching one service and noting the intense passion, I swear, I could see a glow eminating from his face. 
The Rev became affectionately known - by animal lovers all over the world -  as the Animals Padre.
But for me the Reverend Thompson's most prestigious achievement was setting up a memorial service at the Animals War Memorial in London, for the forgotten animals of war. There are some who wanted Rev James to conduct this service in the afternoon because they said it would conflict with the memorial service for human victims if it was to take place in the morning. The Rev stuck to his belief that animal victims should be given the same respect as people and so the service for animals will always be held in the morning. This year however the Reverend will not be giving the service but he has been assured by another high ranking member of the clergy that although the animal service will be held in the morning, another service will also be held on the afternoon. I presume to placate those that put human life above that of the animals.
We should never forget that it was the Reverend James Thompson who started this service at this memorial for animals.
Thank you Rev James, for sticking to your moral standards and principles and Welcome to Wales Against Animal Cruelty.
Judi
