Why the dogs, why not the homeless?

I was asked the other day, how there could be so much attention on this situation, the one with the sled dogs, when there are so many other weighty matters that abound with our human population: homeless, child abuse, addictions, you name it. Why do people show up at protests for a potential bunny cull, but not for these others? Fair enough question. Happy to explain…

There is a difference yes. The difference here is that the humans are the caretakers of animals. The animals have no choice, really, but to live within our society as we wish. Humans do have a choice, and if they are incapable of choices, their caretakers have choices. In my opinion, if their caretakers abdicate from or are incapable of their responsibility, then we have human conditions such as are listed above.

In Kelowna, we had an overpopulation of bunnies in one of our areas, according to some people there were THOUSANDS. Apparently people would dump their unwanted bunnies there, and well, bunnies do what bunnies do, and the population exploded. What is the City to do? They came up with the idea of a cull, but too many people protested, (though one went out with his 14 year old son and beat some to death with a bat – and a serial killer is born!) Long story short, the majority (I don’t know if all) were put with TRACs on a bunny farm. I believe they were all fixed so they could not reproduce. But, the point here is that it was because of human action that this problem occurred in the first place. Human action. Powerful beasts, we humans.

Our laws in Canada are atrocious. They are outdated and insufficient for the cruelty that humans are capable of. They have not been changed since 1892! Truth of the matter is, you can do anything pretty much right now to an animal in Canada, and you’ll just get a slap on the wrist. There are many of us that want that changed. The sled dog executions were an unavoidably, tremendously impactful event that shoved our current laws unceremoniously in our face, and demanded our attention to get these laws changed NOW. We could not NOT do something! We are taking ownership of our laws, we are taking ownership of our voice. But why is this so important? They are just DOGS for heavensake!

Case in point:
Here is the WCB report from BF who killed the Outdoor Adventure Sled Dogs – have you read it? http://www.cbc.ca/bc/news/bc-110131-worksafebc-whistler-dog-cull.pdf

The outrage that I and others feel that this was even permitted to happen (and that some people think it was okay to do) is why we are using this momentum to get our laws changed so that if it ever did happen again, there would be severe penalties for their actions. Bill C-229 is not perfect in my eyes, I would like things to be much stiffer in penalties, and stronger in definitions, but I know laws need to change in increments. Maybe my son or grandchildren will see what I would envision as a perfect legislation.

The dog walks listed in this facebook Vigil for 100 Sled Dogs group are not just “dog walks”. There is so much more behind it, there will be petitions that people can sign so they at least feel like they are :doing: something. That is the motive behind the dog walks. People around the world! are disgusted that something like this could happen in our day and age, in our supposed evolution and consciousness as human beings.

This is not like a protest for a bunny cull. These dogs were massacred, horribly, terribly and painfully. By their pack leader. In front of the survivors. You don’t think dogs feel anything? Look at how your companion greets you next time when you come home.

There are so many people in this world who are watching Whistler, watching them deny that Outdoor Adventures is even part of Whistler, even though Outdoor Adventures is advertised as a Whistler business, given a Whistler business license, and sold as a Whistler activity. There are so many people in this world watching Whistler bury their heads in the sand thinking that if they can’t see a problem, no one else can either.

There are so many people in this world who are watching Canada, watching our government and forming opinions on our population, that we allow this sort of thing to go on. There are so many people within Canada itself, watching and writing and petitioning our government to change the legislation so that this will ever happen again.

I am one of these people, and I hope you are too. This goal is obtainable. We can get the legislation changed. We can make a difference. We can do this. Even one petition from each person with 25 signatures will add up to the million we hope to get. Every signature counts. Every voice counts. Your voice counts. This is not just about the dogs, or about dog walks. This is about making a difference for everyone.

Here is a link to information that you can get started in your own community. It is a note I posted on facebook, and thought perhaps others might like to make an impact in their own community. Any questions, by all means, let me know.

BC Sled Dog Task Force Likely Going to Turn Its Back on Sled Dogs

http://www.petconnection.com/blog/2011/02/18/head-of-b-c-task-force/

quote:
If you thought the fate of the 100 sled dogs who were slaughtered in British Columbia would mean a better day ahead for dogs, think again.

Instead of learning from the tragedy, instead of understanding that yes, sled dogs can be and frequently are adopted into pet homes, instead of acknowledging that death — whether it’s from a bullet to the head, a knife to the throat, or a syringe full of Fatal-plus –  is not an acceptable canine retirement plan, <b>the task force assigned to investigate the killings is turning its back on Canada’s working sled dogs.</b>

Letter to the MPs, MLAs of Canada regarding Animal Rights and Animal Cruelty Legislation

Please feel free to copy and paste, or adjust as you feel necessary. Write to all public representatives and have all of our government hear how we feel about animal rights and animal cruelty. Here is a list of the email addresses

Dear MLA (or MP or Senator) of Canada,

There is outrage all over the world about the massacre of the sled
dogs. Canada is or maybe already has a reputation for cruelty and lack
of regard when it comes to their animal population.

Our society is one of compassion, we Canadians pride ourselves on
being one of the most compassionate peoples on this planet. But, as
Mahatma Ghandi said, ‘The greatness of a nation and its moral progress
can be judged by the ways its animals are treated.

This current disposal of sled dogs in Whistler is a prime example of
what is wrong with the current legislation. These sled dogs (and other
animals) are used for economic gain, but disposed of when they are no
longer able to be supported. This is unacceptable. Animals are
sentient emotional beings. A parallel could be drawn between a parent
who can no longer support a child, would it be acceptable to kill
them?

Under no circumstances should any company be able to discard animals.
There must be agreements signed to this effect. The SPCA or other
humane organizations must be involved and funded to enable relocation,
this needs to be a requirement!

The animal cruelty laws need to be changed. Currently Bill C-229 is in
progress and needs to be passed pronto!

The animal rights laws need to be changed. Bill C-50 needs to be
resubmitted as per requirements and passed pronto! Please SUSPEND
whether you are Liberal or Conservative or NDP or Independent and look
at the entire picture! There is no room for political ego in this
situation! How amazing would that be if you all worked together?

Animals are living sentient beings and need to be recognized as such
in updated legislation to protect their rights.

The words “brutally” and “viciously” must be defined in the Criminal Code.

“Lawful excuse” must be defined as self-defense for both human and animal!

Animals can not be killed or discarded, in any manner, when they no
longer serve their economic use.

A business who uses animals in their day to day work, for economic
gain, for human enjoyment”, must make provisions within their business
plan for the future of these animals.

A business that kills their animals must be penalized financially and
criminally for their actions. Each animal killed must be a subsequent
sentence. Sentences should be major fines, not $500. Go big!

Any illnesses arising from the ordered actions of employees that
require medical or psychological care must be turned back to the
company or parent company of that employee who ordered the action.

Any animal inflicted injuries arising from the actions of any
employees because of their killing animals must be turned back to the
company or parent company of that employee.

Canada must step up to the plate and change the laws that have, in
substance, not been changed since 1892. Bill C-50 is written already,
and could be passed without much ado, as it has already gone through
legislature. C-229 is a good start! Canada likes to think of itself as
a supporter of other nations, and that it has a good reputation in the
world. But as mentioned, a nation’s (or man’s) character is easily
judged by how he treats animals. And what does the world think of us
now.

I do worry that a very narrow minded approach is going to be taken by
this task force – ie just looking at the sled dog issue. I hope
that… this task force pushes forward an increase to spca funding to
support preventative measures. All companies like Outdoor Adventures who use animals
for “human enjoyment” should be made to sign an agreement than none
can be killed because they can’t afford it… that part of the
business requirement is there is acknowledgment that the future of
such animals be assured, and that execution is not acceptable.

I would like a response on what you specifically are doing to aid this venture.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
Julia Trops

Animal rights, MP, MLA Senate emails and letters

Hi to all, if you are an animal lover, and believe that the animal rights laws should be changed, please consider writing to all the MPs and MLAs across Canada. I have compiled the email addresses for a simple copy and paste. To do this would take about half an hour tops. Together we can make a difference, and it is a small amount of time to be spent that could have a big impact. When the people raise their voices in unison, we create a choir and a song that can not be ignored.

Send in groups of about 20 or 30, to prevent being caught by spam filters, and send over a period of a week to prevent your email provider getting mad at you. Yes, there are a lot of emails here. With the power of the internet we can make a difference.

Current Canadian Animal Legislation still treats animals as Property.

“Animals typically are treated as things over which humans can exercise rights of possession, use, and enjoyment in exclusion of other humans.  Therefore, animals are property in Canada, and the Criminal Code recognizes this by placing animals under Part XI, which is titled Wilful and Forbidden Acts in Respect of Certain Property.”
