”The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings, and consequently endure as much pain when their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is greater, because they have no mind to bear them up against their sufferings, and no hope to look forward to when enduring the last extreme pain.”
Some within me says this is only the start.
Stay tuned for the sound of a cracking spine.

And as always,
Good night listners,
Eating Dory would be a crime aginst children when they find out,let me tell you.
Stop the insanity Canada.
Minister of Public Safety, Government of Canada Ralph Goodale
Ban the import of “Dory” into Canada!
With the new Disney Pixar movie, “Finding Dory” about to hit theatres, the aquarium hobby trade is about to see another explosion in interest, similar to the one that happened after “Finding Nemo”. The problem is, unlike “Nemo”, “Dory” (paracanthurus hepatus, or hippo tang, or blue tang, or palette surgeonfish) cannot be bred in captivity. The wild stocks of paracanthurus hepatus should not be forced to endure the strain of increased capture, they should be left in the ocean where they belong. Therefore, I’m calling on Ralph Goodale, Canadian minister of public safety in charge of the CBSA, to introduce a temporary moratorium on the import of paracanthurus hepatus.

Saved from the dinner table: Terrified canines crammed into cages and destined for restaurants are rescued in China ahead of barbaric annual ‘dog meat festival’
What are they thinking over there?
Animal protection organisation Humane Society International (HSI) confirmed the rescue to MailOnline and called it ‘an amazing operation dealing a heavy blow to the city’s dog and cat meat traders’.
The organisation said China has the largest and most extensive dog meat business in the world.
In the last few weeks alone, HSI has seen hundreds of dogs saved throughout the country by the organisation’s local partners.
Wendy Higgins, the Director of International Media from HSI, told MailOnline: ‘Typically, our activists find terrified and exhausted dogs on board these trucks, including many pure breeds still wearing their pet collars, clearly someone’s stolen companion.’
She added: ‘Dogs are snatched from the streets, crammed violently into tiny wire cages, packed on trucks and driven days or weeks across China without water or food, before reaching the slaughterhouse where they are beaten to death in front of each other.
‘It’s animal abuse on a massive scale and it has to stop.’
Why should animals be off the menu? Watch and listen. Please share this with your family and friends.
Philip Wollen addresses the St James Ethics and the Wheeler Centre debate.
Who is Philip Wollen?
Philip Wollen was vice president of Citibank, specialising in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions.
At age 34, he was rated by Australian Business Magazine in their Top 40 Australian head-hunted executives. At age 40, he witnessed cruelty on such a colossal scale that it affected him profoundly. He decided to give away everything he owned with warm hands, and die broke. ‘And so far, we are right on budget,’ he jokes.
Today he devotes his life to children, animals, the environment, the terminally ill, the homeless and the arts. He supports over 500 humanitarian projects in over 40 countries with schools, orphanages, shelters, sanctuaries, clinics, and scholarships.
In 2005 he received the Order of Australia. In 2007 he was Australian of the Year, Victoria. The Australia Day Council said of him, ‘Essentially a private man, Philip Wollen seeks no personal publicity but is not afraid to step into the limelight for a just cause.’
