Animal Activists Using Drones For Aerial Surveillance

CBS Philly

By Steve Tawa

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) — Animal rights activists are using a new weapon in their war against animal abuse.

Stuart Chaifetz, a Cherry Hill-based investigator with the organization Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (“SHARK”), says his group uses drones to go where there are no roads, and beyond fences and walls.

“These remote controlled aircraft are especially helpful when you’ve got animal cruelty that’s going on but is hidden from the public view,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

One of their priorities has been video documentation of hunting club pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania.

“We’re able to fly these over the trees and capture really dramatic footage of these animals being tortured and killed,” Chaifetz says.

But he notes that SHARK is unable to use long-range, high definition cameras in urban areas such as Philadelphia, where dogfighting and cockfighting are known to take place in basements and garages.

Alexandra Burke gets Naked for PETA Campaign

Soph-istication

Read what Alexandra’s got to say about animal rights…

“When I found out what happens to animals on fur farms my heart just sank…  I have animals and the thought of someone hurting them so they can be turned into a coat makes me sick….  Anyone thinking about buying or wearing fur should watch PETA’s videos of animals suffering on fur farms – after seeing them, I can’t imagine anyone would want to be caught dead in fur…  Not only is fur cruel, it’s also totally gross,’ she said at the time. ‘I mean, who wants to wear the skin of an abused animal? Not me!”

Suppose she has to do something with her time since she got dropped from her record label…

Justice For Sammy

pat 2NEWARK, NJ—Kisha Curtis, the 29-year-old woman who has admitted that she abused and neglected a pit bull now known as Patrick faces up to 18 months in jail and a fine of up to $10,000 when she appears for sentencing Thursday in Superior Court in Newark.

Curtis will be sentenced by Judge Joseph Cassini III.  The judge will also rule on the ongoing custody battle for Patrick.

Kisha Curtis, Woman Who Threw Dying Dog Down Garbage Chute, Gets Probation

Justice For Sammy

miracleNEWARK, N.J. — A woman who admitted abandoning a dog later found at the bottom of a trash chute in a case that became a cause celebre and led to tougher animal cruelty laws was sentenced to probation Thursday by a judge who urged the animal’s supporters to “put things in perspective.”

The Essex County prosecutor’s office had sought to have Kisha Curtis given the maximum sentence of 18 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to fourth-degree animal cruelty last month just before her trial was to begin. She got 18 months of probation instead.

Curtis, 29, admitted that she left the pit bull tied to a railing outside her Newark apartment building in 2011 when she left town for a week. The emaciated dog was found in a plastic bag at the bottom of the building’s trash chute, unable to stand and weighing about 20 pounds, or about…

Animal Advocates File Brief in Federal Appeal of Controversial “Crush” Video Case

Taking Back America

People who hurt animals are evil but torturing animals for sexual gratification goes beyond the realm of evil. And anyone who is capable of hurting an innocent animal is capable of doing the same to humans.  If you see nothing wrong with this then move along, nothing to see here. If you agree that torturing animals is wrong then reblog this and spread the news to raise awareness of what’s going on so we can stop not only this kind of evil, vile torture of animals but all animal cruelty/torture.

Remember: If you aren’t part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.
