Im Kampf für die Ziesel – weil Aussterben für immer ist!

Im Kampf für die Ziesel – weil Aussterben für immer ist!

 

In der dieswöchigen Ausgabe der ‚Niederösterreichischen Nachrichten‘ erschien abermals ein Artikel über unsere Arbeit für die Ziesel in Niederösterreich. Die kleinen Nagetiere, an vorderster Stelle in der berüchtigten ‚Roten Liste‘ der aussterbenden Tierarten zu finden, verschwinden mehr und mehr von der Landkarte des Lebens; im Bereich um Krems jedoch, der weithin bekannten Weinstadt an der Donau, gibt es aufgrund der geographischen Lage und der gegebenen landwirtschaftlichen Strukturen (hier sind es die Weingärten, welche ideale Lebensbedingungen für die Tiere bereithalten) größere Populationen, welche wir mit aller uns zur Verfügung stehender Kraft zu schützen versuchen – alleine, ein großes Problem hierbei stellen sowohl der Verkehr als auch die immer mehr werdenden Berichte von illegalen Tötungen durch Betreiber der lokalen Landwirtschaft, vor allem aus dem Weinbau, dar.

 

Foto: wie immer an jener Stelle möchten wir Sie von ganzem Herzen bitten, bitte schreiben Sie der Redaktion ein paar Worte – gerade in diesem Falle wäre es umso wichtiger, denn selbstredend werden in der Weinregion Krems und Umgebung mehr Stimmen laut werden, welche Partei gegen die Ziesel ergreifen! Ebenfalls sehr bemerkenswert: die Obfrau der Bezirksbauernkammer spricht mahnende Worte: ‚Offensichtlich weiß Herr Putzgruber nicht, was die Ziesel in der Landwirtschaft anrichten.‘ Das wären Schäden im Ausmaß von 50 – 60 % an Ernteausfällen, hören wir. Was Sie aber zu vergessen scheint, wir sprechen von Weingärten, wie sie den Bezirk dominieren – und welcher Weingarten jemals mit einer solchen Bilanz konfrontiert war, das sollte sie verraten; und am Besten dann auch gleich jene Landwirte in anderen Bereichen offenlegen, wo diese horrenden Schäden aufgetreten sein wollen! redaktion.krems@noen.at

Selbstredend, man darf nicht alle jene in einen Topf werfen – tatsächlich gibt es auch Weinbauern, welche eine besondere Plakette auf ihren Erzeugnissen führen dürfen – ‚Zieselfreundliche Weingärten‘, lesen wir da. Die Frage, die sich hier stellt: wenn die Ziesel doch überall sonst so unfassbare Schäden anrichten, warum passiert dann dort nichts Nennenswertes mit der Ernte? Ja, warum ‚laden‘ diese Weinbauern die Nager geradewegs ein, passen sogar die Gegebenheiten für die Tiere an, indem sie etwa das Gras zwischen den Rebstöcken kurzhalten? Wie können solche Landwirte ‚überleben‘, sogar Achtung und Respekt den Mitgeschöpfen entgegenbringen, wo sich doch ihre Konkurrenten alleine von der Anwesenheit der Nagetiere in den Ruin getrieben fühlen? 

Nicht zuletzt deshalb sind Berichte wie jener nun erschienene immens wichtig; sie sollen, müssen, dazu beitragen, uralten Überlieferungen vom ‚Schädling‘ Ziesel endlich, endlich zu entstauben und die völlig irrealen Befürchtungen der Landwirte dorthin zu führen, wo sie hingehören: ins Reich der Legenden!

Denn tatsächlich ist der angebliche Schaden, den die kleinen Tiere anrichten sollen, wesentlich geringer als angenommen – meist hört man bei Klagen bloß Geschichten von irgendwelchen Menschen, Bekannten oder Bekannten von Bekannten, welche über Ernteverluste klagen, deren Keller eingestürzt wären (auf Grund der Tunnelbautätigkeiten der Ziesel‘, oder, um der ganzen unwürdigen Szenerie noch die Krone aufzusetzen, wo die Nager angeblich an den Reben hochgeklettert wären und durch ihren Urin die Trauben zum Verfaulen gebracht hätten – Beweise für solche Anschuldigen, die werden aber dann sonderbarerweise nicht geliefert – wie denn auch, gehören derartige Mythen doch bloß in! Aber dies tut der Hatz einen Abbruch, denn viel zu oft – wir alle wissen es nur zu gut – sind im Gehirn festgesetzte Gedankengänge, noch dazu wenn sie Generationen überdauert haben, nur ganz schwer wieder zu entfernen!

 

Deshalb entschlossen wir uns dieser Tage erneut zu Kundgebungen entlang der ‚Zieselrouten‘. Ziel dabei ist es, eine möglichst breitflächige Diskussion in Gang zu setzen. Wir MÜSSEN den Menschen begreifbar machen, AUSSTERBEN IST FÜR IMMER… jetzt, bevor es endgültig zu spät für solche Schritte ist!!!

Celebrating Torture?

Image

 

Image

 

Does torturing an animal before killing and eating them make the meat taste better? Would you like your food better if you knew it had been brutally beaten and boiled alive before reaching your plate?

Believe it or not, this horror actually exists in China’s dog and cat meat trade. And the cruelty is celebrated each year at the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, scheduled for June 21. Let’s stop Yulin in 2018.

 

Join the Defeat Dog Meat Team to show your commitment to stopping Yulin, and get a free gift.

There is simply no reason for this abominable cruelty to happen. Be part of our voice to STOP YULIN.

 

Thank you for doing your part to help stop animal cruelty.

This balloon almost killed a sea turtle

 
 

 

 
Friend,

Earlier this month, one of our sea turtle nest patrollers in Texas stumbled onto something horrifying on the beach.

An endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle entangled in balloon strings and rope.

Luckily, our volunteer was trained and immediately called NOAA (the federal oceans agency) to rescue the sea turtle.

The threats sea turtles face are ongoing. That’s why we exist – to fight for the sea turtles.

Join us in protecting sea turtles by making a donation to Turtle Island Restoration Network today so we can continue to be on the vanguard in the Gulf of Mexico.

With your support:

  • I train more than 200 hundred volunteers to patrol Texas beaches every year;
  • I watchdog coastal projects to ensure they are done in ways that cause the least harm;
  • I collaborate with other organizations to promote policies that reduce plastic pollution and address the impacts of industrial fishing.

Just like I need hundreds of people helping me patrol nesting beaches, I need you by my side in the fight for the sea turtles.

Thanks,

Joanie Steinhaus, Gulf of Mexico Program Director
Turtle Island Restoration Network

PS – The turtle in the photo above is currently recovering and the goal is to release it back into the wild.

Petition: Schluss mit der Kaninchen-Quälerei!

 

Obwohl es längst anerkannte Alternativen gibt, werden weiterhin Kaninchen in Tierversuchen gequält! Die sogenannten Pyrogen-Tests sind somit nicht nur unnötig sondern auch illegal. Bitte hilf uns mit deiner Unterschrift, damit wir diesen Verbrechen an unschuldigen Tieren einen Riegel vorschieben können!

Ein überraschend mildes Urteil ist nun im Prozess um den „Stall der Finsternis“ ergangen. Lies selbst, wieso wir trotzdem „froh“ sein müssen…

Das wichtigste Ereignis in der Geschichte des VGT hat heuer 10jähriges Jubiläum. Am 21. Mai 2008 stürmten Polizeieinheiten die Privatwohnungen und Büros von Tierschützer_innen. Grund genug für eine Gedenkfeier. Wir freuen uns auf dich!

This she-wolf needs your voice

 

Denmark’s Only Female Wild Wolf Was Shot and Killed. Demand Her Murderer Be Charged With Animal Cruelty!

 

 

Sign Now

 

 

 

One of the first wild wolves to roam free in Denmark in over 200 years has been murdered. It was all caught on film, and the footage clearly shows that the female wolf wasn’t posing a threat to anyone. The innocent animal was just roaming around when someone in a parked car shot her dead.

Will you sign this petition asking Danish officials to charge the murderer with animal cruelty?

This she-wolf was extremely special. Until recently, wolves had not lived in Denmark since 1813. Then just last year, a female wolf traveled to Denmark and began a family. It was the first functioning pack there in centuries! Now, a thoughtless and hateful human has killed this beautiful wolf.

A man has been identified in this case, and has been charged with violating Denmark’s hunting act. But that’s not enough. He has done far worse.

Please sign the petition to demand this man is also charged with animal cruelty.

Thank you,

    Alex B.
The Care2 Petitions Team

 

 

 

P.S. This criminal has not only murdered a special wolf, he’s also sabotaged the survival of her pack. This case must be treated as animal cruelty. Please sign the petition now.
