NEWS EXTRA - 'Latest news hunt/havoc page' THE RSPCA STILL UNDER ATTACK FROM AN HYPOCRITICAL COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE AS REPORTED IN HORSE & HOUND - ALONG WITH ANOTHER BIASED ARTICLE RE AUTUMN HUNTING, FORMERLY KNOWN AS CUB HUNTING. IF EVER THERE WAS PROOF THAT THESE LOATHSOME PEOPLE STILL CRUELLY HUNT FOXES AND CUBS THEN SO CALLED AUTUMN HUNTING IS ALL THE PROOF ANYONE NEEDS.
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.
PLEASE SIGN THE FOLLOWING PETITION TO BAN TERRIER WORK.
The ban on terrier work must be a priority if we are to stop the cruelty involved in fox hunting.
At present, terrier work has a hideous loophole that allows hunts to use the game keepers exemption. The only reason hunts encourage terrier-men to tag along with them is because these disgusting people can bolt foxes for them. Although this is illegal, it still goes on. The only way to stop this hidden cruelty is to ban terrier work entirely. SEE COMMENTS PAGE...

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 pictured climbing up through the forest, phew! And just in time to see the International Space Station go over at precisely 08.58pm - though at the time it was still over Portugal. Night foray's into the forest are great! Ghostly barn owls swooping overhead and an incredible display of the cosmos that includes seeing a few shooting stars. The milky way (our own gallaxy) is always so clear from the forest because there is less light pollution. Yes, trips into the depths of the forest from time to time help a little with reducing my stress levels. And its lovely knowing there are busy little populations of animals all around us. And, you can't beat having a sense of adventure - isn't this what living is supposed to be about?
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. YOU LIVE, THEN PLEASE CONTACT US HERE AT OUR

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.
Everyone should take the trouble to read the SORDID TRUTH ABOUT FOX HUNTING
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.* '
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.

“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
