Monkey is rescued after owner kept him in tiny, dark, rat-filled cage for 25 years

Posted By Staff

Date: April 9th, 2016

monkeyThailand – The monkey looks out from the dark, his emaciated, dirty hands clutching onto the rusted wire which has kept him trapped in this tiny hole for a quarter of a century.

This tiny, damp hole has been his home ever since he was captured in 1991 and turned into a family pet – a spectacle for the neighbours to enjoy in this slum in downtown Bangkok, Thailand.

The rat-infested cage is so small, the macaque’s muscles had all but wasted away, leaving the animal barely able to stand.

And here he would have remained, were it not for a passer-by who spotted his mournful eyes, and decided to act.  More

According to one expert, showers are really only needed about twice a week.

Dr Elaine Larson, an infectious disease expert at Columbia University School of Nursing, told Time magazine that a shower a day is not necessary – at least for your skin.

“People think they are showering or to be cleaner, but bacteriologically, that’s not the case,” she said.  More

Extremist groups in Pakistan are protesting new laws that protect women from violence

Posted By Staff

Date: April 6th, 2016

pakiGROUPS of hard-line, right-wing Islamic extremists across Pakistan have banded in protest to reclaim the right to abuse and kill their wives and daughters.

The country has finally taken a progressive step forward on gender equality, but some men still believe the mistreatment of women is their divine, God-given right.

The controversy began when the Pakistani government introduced the Protection of Women Against Violence Bill, which effectively criminalises violence against women in Punjab — the country’s most populous region.

Before the law was officially enacted on March 1, diehard extremists attempted to block the legislation, saying it would “destroy the family system in Pakistan” and “add to the miseries of women”.  More

eating dogBEIJING - Animal rights activists are seeking to shut down an annual summer dog meat festival in southern China blamed for harming the country’s international reputation as well as fueling extreme cruelty to canines and unhygienic food handling practices.

Activists from a coalition of groups said Monday that they will continue press for the festival to be banned as well as legislation outlawing the slaughtering of dogs and cats and the consumption of their meat.

While an estimated 10 million-20 million dogs are killed for their meat each year in China, the June 20 event in the city of Yulin has come to symbolize the cruelty and lack of hygiene associated with the largely unregulated industry.  More
