    A Florida man turned lizard smuggler pleaded guilty this week in federal court to trafficking live water monitor lizards from the Philippines. Akbar Akram, of Holiday, Florida, near Tampa, admitted to illegally importing more than 20 live water monitor lizards in 2016, according to the plea documents. The documents say Akram stuffed the lizards into socks and sealed them with tape, before hiding them inside electronic equipment which was shipped under a false label.
  • Sniffer Dogs Suffer for US Willful Ignorance About Islam

    The Independent reported Tuesday that “the US has stopped exporting bomb-sniffing dogs to Egypt and Jordan after a number of animals died from mistreatment and neglect, US authorities said.” Those US authorities are likely scratching their heads over this, wondering what on earth could possibly be the motive of Egyptian and Jordanian law enforcement in mistreating these dogs. The explanation is simple, but since it lies outside the bounds of the military establishment’s politically correct fantasies regarding Islam, it will almost certainly never be acknowledged. The clearest evidence of that is the fact that the decision to stop sending these...

    INDONESIA: Muslim cleric killed by a cow that was about to have its throat cut while fully conscious AUGUST 15, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM Muslims recently celebrated Eid al-Adha, the Islamic festival of animal torture and sacrifice. Muslims inflict unnecessary agony on millions of helpless animals (sheep, goats, cows, camels) that are forced to have their necks cut so they bleed to death slowly while fully conscious and writhing in pain, which could take several minutes depending on the size of the animal. TheJakartaPost (h/t RF) A Muslim cleric who was set to participate in qurban (animal sacrifice) during Sunday’s Idul...

    Recording events from public land shouldn't be a crime. Yet when a woman in Utah, standing by a public road, filmed farmworkers pushing a cow with a bulldozer, the farmer drove up to her and said, "You cannot videotape my property." Soon the police came and local prosecutors charged her with "agricultural operation interference." They dropped the charges several months later since she was on public land. But what if she'd posed as a farmworker, got a job on the farm and then secretly recorded what she saw? Increasingly, activists do that. More than a hundred such undercover investigations have...

    People who abuse animals are sick and dangerous to rest of society.  Something is very wrong with the mental and moral wiring.  When the abuse involves sex and is such violent sexual assault that death results, the dangers are acute. Now, consider what the sanctuary state policy in Oregon has released into society, even though the perp is not legally entitled to be in this country, free to express his sick urges again, next time possibly with a human victim.  John Binder reports at Breitbart: As Breitbart News reported, illegal alien Fidel Lopez, 52-years-old, was convicted last month and sentenced to 60 days in...

  • Why ban foie gras but not other meats rooted in animal cruelty?

    NY Post ^ | 2/4/19 | Steve Cuozzo
    No more foie gras in New York City because it’s cruel to force-feed ducks and geese to make their livers tastier? A bill introduced in the City Council by member Carlina Rivera, who represents lower Manhattan, would outlaw its sale, as The Post reported on Monday. But like many politically correct council brainstorms, it’s not really about humane treatment of animals. It’s a selective-outrage thumb in the eye, or the gullet, of the “rich.” Who eats foie gras except the rich? Many animals and sea creatures are brutalized before they’re brought to our tables. We ignore it because our lives...

    A woman in Shamong Township, Burlington County, was found living with 44 dead dogs and 130 living dogs in "deplorable" conditions, State Police said. Donna Roberts, 65, was charged with animal cruelty Tuesday after State Police from the Red Lion Station inspected her home on Oakshade Road. With the Burlington County Health Department, authorities discovered "evidence of animal cruelty inflicted upon various breeds of dogs on the property," State Police said in a statement. The odor of animal feces and ammonia permeated the inside of the residence, which caused several responders to feel dizzy and nauseous, State Police said. The...

    PALM BAY, Fla. - An 88-year-old man posted a $2,000 bond and walked out of the Brevard County Jail on Friday, after being accused of burning a raccoon he had trapped. His first time in jail, Ezra James said he feared the raccoon would bite him and give him rabies. He said he also planned to kill the raccoon for eating mangos in his yard. "I throw some gasoline on him and I light a match," James said. Moments later, as the raccoon burned alive, a neighbor called 911, James said. James called that neighbor a "wicked woman."

    A 61-year-old Reston man is facing several charges stemming from a 2017 incident in which his dog was found deceased at an archery range. Officers responded to the private Northern Virginia Archers Club Range, adjacent to Fountainhead Regional Park, on July 15 of last summer after someone called to report they found a deceased dog that appeared to have been shot with a firearm. The dog, a shepherd mix, had a collar, but no tags or any identifying information. Further investigation determined the dog did have a microchip, which led officers to medical records and a possible owner. Animal...

The suspect, who will not be identified due to his age, has not been located and arrested. Investigators said they located the animal and its owner. They said the cat has a fractured leg but is expected...

     was the blue suitcase that led police to the pit bull’s killer. On Wednesday, more than a month after Ollie was found in a suitcase with more than 30 stab wounds, Hollywood police announced the arrest of Brendan Evans, 31. Evans, who has a rap sheet including an arrest in 2012 on domestic battery charges, now faces a charge of aggravated animal cruelty. Police say the DNA on the suitcase linked back to Evans, who is on probation for a bank robbery in Hernando County in central Florida. Hollywood police had arrested him Nov. 15 after DNA linked him to...

    Halal Choices ^ | Sep 9, 2015
    Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Here at Halal Choices we are concerned with the halal slaughter of animals such as beef, lamb and poultry. To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the...
