Only psychopathic morons would believe that dragging a fish from its natural watery habitat into the air by a hook stuck through its mouth doesn’t cause pain.
The above image of an anglers hut redecorated with the truth by anonymous Animal LALF members says it all. The cost of paint and the effort the membership have expended to cover-up the damage has eaten into their club accounts.
The psycho anglers perpetuate their “sport” with a lie, that fish don’t feel pain. That claim is untrue; fish do feel pain. Here’s what the Smithsonian has to say on the subject. But, irrespective of what a bunch of scientists have discovered from their research it has always been obvious to rational humans that all sentient beings feel pain.
This expanded article was originally published in 2014 on TheDuckShoot Blog before it was hacked.
I first saw this beautiful story in the Daily Mail. For 50 years Raju, the elephant did not have an enjoyable life. In 2014, Wildlife SOS rescued him from the daily torture by his callous ‘owner’ who kept him permanently in spiked chains.
Backed up by a court order and Indian forestry officials Wildlife SOS unshackled Raju and loaded him onto an open truck to be driven to his new home 350 miles away. It was a dangerous mission, but the rescuers succeeded.
The ‘owner’ tried to halt the rescue by applying more chains and agitating Raju. An angry bull elephant can become very dangerous, so the rescuers had to take extra care.
Finally, Raju travelled to the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre at Mathura where he was fed, washed and had his wounds treated. Two other elephants who had similar experiences were introduced to him, all part of his rehabilitation.
The charity, founded in India in 1995, is appealing for £10,000 of donations to help start the elephant’s new life. To donate, visit www.wildlifesos.org, or cheques or postal orders can be sent to Wildlife SOS, 483 Green Lanes, London, N13 4BS.
After a long break caused by the site being attacked, hacked and taken down, The Duck Shoot is on the way back… again. Last time the site was broken, for the third time, I just could not raise the enthusiasm to rebuild it. That is why TDS has sat there dormant for so long. However, I have a new passion running through my veins, so here I go again.
The Duck Shoot is a blog owned by me, Dave Duckshoot. I have a passion for justice and a belief that all Earthlings are born equal, whatever their species, gender, skin colour, and sexuality. Authoritarianism, elitism, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, sexism, and specism repulse me. In this blog, I expose the psychopaths in society; corrupt politicians, bossy bureaucrats, unethical businesspeople, criminals, crooked judges and magistrates, human traffickers, paedophiles and bent police officers. I do not ignore the non-human world either. You will if you are brave enough to face the truth read of the Animal Holocaust that is not only cruel and unnecessary but is also destroying planet Earth. Covid-19 is suspected of being caused by the Chinese wet markets, where particularly harsh practices occur, and there is a complete lack of respect for animals at these markets.
The blog actively campaigns for the worldwide abolition of the death penalty for all sentient beings. All killing is wrong except in self-defence. Murderers and rapist should be incarcerated for life, but not executed. Nobody, especially governments, has the right to take the life of anyone even if they have committed the most heinous of crimes of murder or rape.
