Social conditioning and exploitation of lives – A reality check

In this materialistic world, there is a system in place that controls almost everything we do. It programmes us on what to think,  what to see, what to do and who to love, and who to hate.

It  makes people believe that it’s alright to see animals as commodities as humans are the most dominant species in the world, although we are not.

This system does more than just controlling. It socially conditions people to believe that animals are here for us to be used as we like. Tradition, culture, geography and religions determine the level of social conditioning, but by the end of the day it’s the system that controls everything in place.

Former Goat Dairy Farm Turns into Sanctuary and Educational Center

Mercy for all Animals

Stubborn resistance crumbles in the face of undeniable truth, as one former goat farmer discovered firsthand.

As F.A.R.M. (Farm Animal Rights Movement) reports:

“Despite setting out with the best intentions—aiming for the most “humane” goat cheese farm possible, owner Andrea Davis soon came to realize there was truly no such thing as humane animal farming practices.

After witnessing ongoing and extremely stressful separation anxiety between moms and babies (because in order for us to use their milk for cheese or other products the babies can’t be allowed to consume it of course), among other inherent cruelties in the business, she decided to turn her farm into The Sanctuary School at Broken Shovels Farm.

It will be an educational center for veganism and a forever home for many former dairy farmed goats as well as other animals like chickens, cats, and dogs.

Battling the Odds Against Wolf Reintroduction

Longreads

Now that they’re endangered, the wolf has become as much a symbol as an animal. From folk tales like Little Red Riding Hood to dramatized stories of mass cattle-killing, many people want the wolf out of the lands where scientists have reintroduced them. In an excerpt of Brenda Peterson?s book Wolf Nation over at The Morning Newsthe author follows captive-bred Mexican gray wolves from a Washington sanctuary to their release site in New Mexico. What she finds is grace and determination among one of nature’s most maligned but majestic creatures, and she examines the powerful network of political and economic interests battling over wolf recovery.

The struggle between state and federal wildlife agencies over the Mexican wolf recovery continues. The Center for Biological Diversity urges that New Mexico should “extricate itself from the state politics driven by the livestock industry, stop removing wolves from the wild, release five more…

But Why Not Dairy?

This is beautiful piece written by my friend Barbara Larue. Thought I would reblog the same for raising awareness among my followers and for them to spread the word out. Together we stand for animals.

Mercy for all Animals

mom and baby cow snuggles_1073febad64ef4c66b9105729f08401dIt’s a fair and often heard question, one I had myself several years ago.

“I like my cheese/ice cream/milk, etc. and besides they don’t kill the cows for their milk”.

That’s what’s normally expressed when someone wonders why people go vegan instead of simply vegetarian (vegan excludes all animal products and vegetarian excludes meat).

The heartbreaking truth is that dairy cows suffer intensely from an industry that exploits them mercilessly.

It all begins with the calf being born to cause the cow to give milk for her baby.

Because man has become accustomed to using the milk meant for the calf, the natural process of a mother nurturing her young is violated, with the baby being taken from the mother either immediately upon birth or shortly thereafter, much to the mother’s grief, anger and sorrow.

The mom will call for her calf and try to search for it, and her…
