HELP END ANIMAL ABUSE IN GREECE
"The awful wrongs and sufferings forced upon the innocent, helpless,
faithful animal race form the blackest chapter in the whole world's history."
- Edward Freeman, (English Historian and Commentator)

I took this village shot when I was in Greece in 2004. It had always been a dream of mine to visit the Greek Islands. I was not disappointed. But I am terribly saddened as I read about the animal abuse going on over there. It's one more heart wrenching and tragic example of such inhumanity.
I have never posted graphic images on my site. I don't support sensationalism. I don't watch videos showing inhumane acts. I prefer to use words and nice visuals, but I came across a site called Abolitionist-Online and thought it deserves to be passed along. I glanced at the heart wrenching images of animal abuse (it's very hard for me to stomach) and read the information. It's horrific what's going on in Greece. We must not turn a blind eye. Abused animals need protection and help from caring humans.

Straight from ABOLITIONIST-ONLINE: A Voice For Animal Rights reads:
Alive - whimpering and crying for the help and compassion of a human. It didn't come. This dog was seen by thousands of pedestrians and left to suffer alone. This dog after weeks and weeks of suffering in agony was rescued by foreign friend of Marijo's living in Greece and mercifully placed into the arms and heart of God. This dog "existed" in hell and died in hell. There are tens of thousand of animals like this in the Cradle of Civilisation on the mainland and on the idyllic Greek islands. Greece is an exquisitely beautiful country that lives by tourism and by tourism alone! Many Greeks are extraordinarily cruel, blind, indifferent and the government is a disgrace. What can you do you ask? READ FULL ARTICLE

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,

What greater atrocity is there on this planet than to sell a human life and brutally force him or her into a life in the sex trade or endless labor?
And how dare we abuse, kill and traffic animals in the name of profit... in the name of anything for any reason!
