I was hoping to tell people that South Carolina, USA, still has bear baiting legal. I visit quite a few animal welfare sites, for petitions, worldwide, and I can tell you that we have no idea, in Oz, the horrifying facts of what is going on. Time and again, America just freezes you in horror, at what goes on in the Land of the Free. The Animal Rescue site, has a petition to get the brutal act made illegal, at least. Please sign it. Just type in Animal Welfare Petitions, and find out what Ukraine has been doing to it's stray dogs, to 'clean the place up' for some World Cup Thingy. A Canada Adventure Travel Company, still running, set up teams of husky type dogs for visitors, then' when the winter Olympics finished and bookings dropped off, the company owners instructed a man to shoot and kill with a knife, every dog. They weren't offered to Sledders, to rescue orgs, to the breeders. Just slaughtered. So many spacies need your help and even if only one in 100, achieves a better result, surely you could add your signature? Thanks.
