PROTEST CALLS FOR GREYHOUND RACING BAN IN W.A.

Posted in animals, dogs, fremantle, western australia by freoview on July 24, 2016

There was not a bookmaker or betting agency in sight when Fremantle Greens MLC Lynn MacLaren joined about 200 people and almost as many dogs at Wilson Park in South Fremantle on Sunday morning to call for the WA state government to join with NSW and ban greyhound racing.

NSW banned the ‘sport’ after acts of animal cruelty were exposed and mass graves filled with greyhounds were discovered there.

Posted in animals, dogs, fremantle, western australia by freoview on July 23, 2016

There will be a rally to call for a ban on greyhound racing in W.A. at Wilson Park at South Beach in Fremantle this Sunday between 11 am and 1 pm.

The location of the rally  is quite significant as the first horse races were held at South Beach.

FARMER DAMIAN ANIMALS BEST LOVED AND CARED FOR

The West Australian newspaper article on-line today that abandoned farm animals had been found in Stevens Street, Fremantle at midnight last night is a beat up and disgrace as the animals belong to well-known Farmer Damian who shows his animals at markets and also does school education events.

Damian absolutely loves his animals and cares for them extremely well. He was heart-broken last year when his beautiful old dog Angus died and he has been posting photos of his beloved dog on Facebook ever since.

I worked with Damian at the Princess May Markets in Freo and at the Swan River Community Markets in Perth, and see him almost every Sunday at the Growers Green Markets. Farmer Damian has educated thousands of children about animals and farm life and some only found out through him that milk actually comes from cows and eggs from hens.

I just talked to Damian who told me the trailer is basically a second-home for his animals where they feel very comfortable. They have travelled Australia in it.

Damian has been doing farm education for more than 12 years and is a really nice and gentle bloke who would never abuse, or not care for his animals. He respects them and treats them with humanity. As he said “I tucked them up in bed for the night as I have done hundreds of times and was up before sunrise to feed them again.”
