I would just like to add, although this blog was made specially for our University project
, we're thinking of continuing this informative blog about abuse and violence. Do feel free, as readers to send us
- pictures (with captions: where you got them, and do include the story behind it as well),
- personal experiences
- and etc
to us at mothernatureUNMC@gmail.com
and we will try our best (if the demands are too high) to post them here. Your posts will be posted from a first hand view (means we're posting it from your view) and will be given credit.
This blog is relatively VERY new as it was just created yesterday by our lovely Siew Boon (one of our five blog owners/admins).
Do share your thoughts with us on abuse and violence and we will try to get your voice across to the masses, be it about
or any kind of abuse or violence.
We know this isn't the first of its kind as there are hundreds; if not thousands of blogs such as this one, but we're doing our part to instill awareness to the people around the world.
If you're interested, please state your:
- name/pseudonym/pen name

and email your stories to us :)
Remember years ago when the picture of a woman in China tortured and killed a little kitten with her stilettos and created a great controversial news worldwide especially through Facebook, Twitter and even blogs? It created awareness among the public that people DO enjoy torturing these poor little animal and it needs to be stopped.Well, of course the news of that women went off quiet over the time being but the impact is still here and there are many organisations are created to protect these animals against cruelty.
The horrifying images of the kitten stabbed and squashed to death by the woman's stilettos' heel.
Then, there's Sheena. The German Shepherd which was abandoned by her owner due to the reluctance to take care of her anymore, much as well bothered to take her to Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) or Performing Animals Welfare Society (PAWS) to get adopted and taken care of. This happened 5 years ago in our very own country. The fact that the owner are only fined with RM100 and sentenced with 2 days jail still shock the whole nation of how unequal rights are given to these animals, much as well giving more reasons for animal activist and animal lovers to put on more petitions and forming more organisations for animal cruelty awareness.
Sheena. Left to death due to starvation and dehydrated for days by her owner who is reluctant and took the easy way to get rid of this loyal pet who has been with him for 7 years.
This is only in small scale, where certain people in society practice such sins while supported by the fact that our government has show notion towards animal cruelty and the law implemented is still light towards these offenders. It is hard to believe that our government shows no affections towards animals where other countries like India and Hong Kong are implementing more strict laws and penalties towards offenders, showing that they value animal rights.
Now, this is only about the people abusing them and sadistically enjoying this. What has been already been in the world today about animal cruelty is farming which includes consuming meat and fur making. Today, there are many organisations that are against animal cruelty, especially wearing fur clothing. Many celebrities join these campaigns, supporting them while becoming ambassadors for these organisations, hoping to raise awareness around the world to stop animal cruelty.
A few examples of celebrities who are against animal cruelty
Did you know that over 31 million animals are killed for fur every year? That includes animals like raccoon, lynx and chinchilla and other wild animals. Some of them are skinned alive, and others were killed especially minx, for making winter coats. These fur farms are sometimes illegal, in which they have no license to kill or to make fur for sale.
Chinese fur farm, showing no mercy to these animals. Shot an dragged and skinned.
Minx captured and caged, waiting to be asphixiated in Norway.
So what can we do to make a difference?
We should stop purchasing products that promotes fur, in which indirectly supports animal cruelty. Join the awareness and campaigns whether it is through online or roadshows. You might be surprised on how can you help to save these animals, especially strays. To show more love and compassion towards animals.
Remember that these animals have every right to feel safe and live just like you.
