Justice for Maggie the baboon!
Animal rights activists want a Constantia property owner to be charged and prosecuted for shooting a young adult female baboon last week that was on his property. The baboon, called Maggie, was humanely euthanised due to her serious injuries. X-rays showed pellets in both legs from previous incidents in the area. And in this case a bullet had paralysed her immediately but did not kill her. She tried to drag herself, with the help of another pregnant female, to safety.
Octopus massacre - next steps...
Scientists are outraged by plans for the world’s first octopus farm, which would see a million of these highly intelligent creatures crammed into tiny tanks every year, and then killed painfully by being frozen alive.
Plans for this giant octopus torture chamber have been submitted to local authorities in Spain.
