The UK government is continuing to outdo itself when it comes to abusing animal rights. Late last year Theresa May’s government effectively declared that animals are not capable of feeling pain, leaving animals in Britain open to cruel and unusual experiments at the hands of commercial laboratories.
While debating the Brexit bill, the government voted against legislation which recognizes that animals have sentience, and can feel pain and emotions. That decision was met with fury by animal rights activists who are still campaigning the government to overturn the law.
The international canine welfare group, the World Dog Alliance, has launched a campaign to demand the British government reconsider the legality of dog meat in the UK. According to the WDA, mass immigration from Asian cultures is the cause of the spike in dog meat consumption in Britain.
extensive scientific evidence that shows that animals, including dogs, do have feelings and emotions, some even stronger than ours.
Dog meat is considered a delicacy in India, and is also consumed in Pakistan, South and North Korea, as well as other countries in the Asian region.
In the US, a total ban on the import, trade and consumption of dog meat, which was promoted by the WDA, is about to be put in place by US Congress. A similar move in Britain has won the backing of a series of senior Members of Parliament, but Theresa May’s UK government are refusing to ban the consumption of dog meat in the country and animal rights campaigners are furious.
According to the WDA, the Tory government’s retrograde animal rights policies have relegated the UK to the lowly status of animal abusers.
In a statement, the WDA said: “It is unfortunate to see dog meat consumption being legal in this nation. The WDA believes a legal ban on eating dog meat would allow the UK to continue to have a global leading role in the field of animal protection, especially after UK leaves the EU.
“Local citizens in the Western countries barely eat dog meat, but the WDA worries that dog meat consumption may be spread to UK with immigration. In the US, people who eat dog meat are mainly immigrants from Asia.”
British Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan, the owner of a prize-winning cockapoo called Noodle, has urged the Prime Minister to ban the eating of dogs in the UK.
Last night he said a comprehensive ban on dog meat is “absolutely right“, The Sun reported.
Sir Alan said: “There is no need in the modern world for this disgusting habit. We should nip it in the bud now to make sure the practice never takes off here. A civilised country is decent to animals, so let’s be fully decent here.”
Chairman of the All-party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group, Lisa Cameron MP, is also demanding the Tory government support a “much needed” ban on eating dog meat.
She said: “We are urging the Government to bring in a ban. We are concerned by the World Dog Alliances’ report about dog food consumption in the UK.
“We want to send out a strong message that people don’t want to see it here in the UK.”
Italians ‘Horrified’ As Immigrants Barbecue Local Pet Dogs
Breitbart.com reports: The man had succeeded in skinning and chopping up the canine and was in the process of grilling it for himself and some friends when he was stopped by law enforcement officers. The young woman who called the police also volunteers at a pro-animal organization in the area.
Explaining to police that such a practice is “normal where we come from,” the migrant insisted that he didn’t kill the dog but had found it dead by the side of the road and had decided to grill it. He also pleaded ignorance of Italian laws forbidding eating cats and dogs.
Police transferred the migrant to a different welcome center, located in the former Hotel Miragolfo in the nearby town of Nicotera.
Among countries of origin, Nigeria accounts for the largest single group of migrants entering Italy at present, with nearly twice as many (15.7 percent) Nigerians entering Italy during 2017 as those from Guinea, the second largest immigrant group by country of provenance (8.4 percent).
This African nation has been the focus of much local media attention in recent weeks, with reports of growth of a “ruthless” Nigerian mafia on Italian soil, and the brutal murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old Italian girl, Pamela Mastropietro, allegedly at the hands of three Nigerian migrants.
Mastropietro’s dismembered corpse was discovered earlier this month in two suitcases outside the central Italian town of Macerata, but was missing her neck, heart and genitals. The body had also been deboned and washed in bleach.
A prominent Italian criminologist said that the modus operandi in this case matched methods typically adopted by the Nigerian mafia.
“What we have seen in the case of Pamela are the same methods the Nigerian mafia systematically employs in Nigeria and elsewhere,” Meluzzi said. “It is a routine to cut victims into pieces and, in some cases, to eat parts of their bodies.”
Troubling as well have been reports of startling percentages of female Nigerian migrants into Italy who wind up as prostitutes, whether by choice or coercion, and become virtual slaves of the Nigerian mafia.
Currently, some 80 percent of Nigerian girls and women migrating to Italy end up in prostitution, a form of sexual slavery from which the girls and women have no recourse. Roughly half of the prostitutes currently working in Italy are Nigerians.
Nigerian traffickers have exploited Europe’s migrant crisis to traffic girls across the Mediterranean to Italy to force into prostitution. From 2014-2016, more than 12,000 Nigerian girls and young women arrived in Italy, and of these, some 9,400 wound up as sex workers.
