Urgent: Horses Dying from Cruelty in L’Île D’Orléans

UPDATE: Peaceful demo to be held Saturday, June 9, 2012, at 3:00pm at St-Pierre De Lile Dorleans, QC.

I just read this on Celine Tremblay’s “potin” (blog) about a colt dying because of random and cruel neglect on Ile d’Orleans.  This is from Céline’s post:

Cette semaine, j’aimerais vous parler d’un cas de cruauté envers les chevaux à L’Île D’Orléans.  Plusieurs plaintes semblent avoir été faites auprès de la MAPAC, la SPA Anima-Québec et la Sûreté du Québec sans grand succès.
Promesse est un poulain frison de 2 ans dont la cote de chair est actuellement de 0, tout au plus 1. Visiblement affaibli, ses jours sont comptés avec l’arrivée de l’hiver.
Les plaintes au MAPAQ n’ayant rien donné et l’impuissance de la Sûreté du Québec  à intervenir, forcent mon appel au public.
Dans le creux de son oreille, j’ai fait la promesse au poulain de me battre pour lui (et pour la horde).  J’ai nommé ce petit cheval « Promesse ». Merci de contribuer à mon effort de sauvetage, car il y a urgence.

I wish I’d seen this sooner because apparently a demonstration was held today, December 3rd.  This, after appeals to the Sûreté du Québec, Anima-Québec, and MAPAQ (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Production of Quebec) got nowhere (what else is new?).  Pour vous joindre aux combattants pour Promesse et ses amis, communiquez avec Louise B. à l’adresse suivante louise.branchaud@videotron.ca   That’s the email to write to, to offer help or to join up with these advocates or visit les écuries Diabolo or click on the link above, Promesse.  This is urgent so please help if you can.  In the meantime, I’ll try to get more information.  Every minute counts for this 2-yr old baby whose body grade is less than one.

What IS wrong with These People?

What IS wrong with These People?

I saw the, um, owner of these dogs (over 500) on the news…didn’t seem like all the lights were on, you know, just not a full deck.  Crying, she claimed:  “We just wanted to find good homes for these dogs…that’s all.  We didn’t mean…etc.”  Right…so, in the meantime, you didn’t water, feed or see to the wellbeing of these dogs, eh?  Just figured they’d survive on air while you went about your business?  Uh huh…geez, are you of the same species as I am?  Although Anima-Quebec took full credit for this rescue (see their website), it is thanks to the Humane Society International/Canada that these dogs were rescued at all.  My Fred was a rescue…from the Monteregie SPCA.  Quebec…sais-tu vivre ou non?
