Read an article on care2 about NYC shooting defenceless pigeons in the world. Very sad and these countries call them selves first world countries?

All these problems of Pests and high number of pigeons is ONLY and ONLY because all predetors have been killed to. Remove the cats , kill the dogs and then go around shooting pigeon as a sport.

 

CNN recently reported on the barbaric pigeon shoots which continue to occur in Pennsylvania.  The story was brief, but the program Issues: with Jane Velez-Mitchell made the point -- pigeon shoots are cruel and inhumane.

What is a live pigeon shoot, exactly?

Pigeons are captured in places like New York City, where they are considered nothing more than pests, or are bred on factory farms in deplorable conditions -- not unlike the horrors endured by egg laying chickens and puppy mill dogs -- to become fodder for gun-toting humans who claim it is "a sport" to shoot frightened, defenseless birds.

The purpose? 

Good question. It appears as though the only answer is… because they can!

Read this great news that Katherine Heigl Donated $1 million for animal welfare. I wonder why our stars dont do SHIT!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Television and film actress Katherine Heigl said on Thursday pledged $1 million to spay and neuter programs in Los Angeles.

The star of Warner Bros.' upcoming film "Life As We Know It" is kicking off a pet initiative to increase awareness and help curb the pet population crisis. Each year 500,000 animals without homes are sheltered and euthanized in California, costing the state $250 million.

"What's happening is not only inhumane and morally reprehensible, it's economically irresponsible," Heigl said. "Killing is not a solution."

The project is in association with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which was named after her brother who was killed in a car accident 24 years ago.

In addition to the contribution to spay and neuter programs, the JDHF will continue to support Learn to be a Best Friend (a training and education obedience program); transport programs moving animals from local shelters where they would be euthanized to humane societies, rescue organizations and "no kill" shelters; and continue to promote pet adoption.

Cesar Millan of National Geographic Channel's "The Dog Whisperer" joined Heigl in the announcement.

"I think we have to work a little harder and call ourselves a dog lover country," he said.

Hi,

On September 13, 2010, a British Citizen named Mr.Nathan Kershaw came
to Friendicoes SECA and informed the rescue team that some sort of
government vehicle was picking up dogs from around the Akshardham
temple. Even small pups were being picked up and mercilessly thrown
into the van. He managed to save two of the dogs and got them to
Friendicoes. These dogs were 3-4 months old. Now, per the laws of
India, the only dogs to be picked up are grown up dogs for neutering /
spaying purposes. So why was this van picking up 3-4 months and
younger pups?

When I sent an email to Nathan he replied with the following:
".....These 2 young dogs, brother and sister who are completely
harmless being caught around the neck and scared more than anything
else. I stopped it from happening and took them to friendicoe's...."

Mr. Nathan

Best, Smita

Dear Sir,

Yes it is true that due to the beatification activities of MCD for the much criticized CMG, dogs are removed, ill treated and dumped to far away different locations. I used to feed two dogs located near Yamuna overbridge on my way back to home after work from Gurgaon. I was desperately looking for them for a few days and since I could not find them I inquired about the dogs to a street vendor there. He told MCD people picked them up and took away in a van. I am so sad to know this and think the same happened to many strays.
However, glad to know some people reacting to this. I found this mail today only as it went to junk mail folder. It would be appreciated if you could inform me in case some favorable action happens from the concerned authorities.
May God bless you for raising voice on behalf of the poor creatures. I pray for you.
Thanks and kind regards,
Jaya Dinesh
