Punish the animal abusers who tortured and killed the two monkeys!

Greetings,

I have just signed the petition started by Occupy for Animals!: "Vietnam: educate your citizens about animal rights, punish abusers"

Information here: http://www.occupyforanimals.org/three-vietnamese-soldiers-tortured-and-skinning-alive-before-eviscerating-and-barbecuing-two-rare-monkeys.html

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Subject: three Vietnamese soldiers tortured, skinned alive, eviscerated and barbecued two monkeys - a male and a pregnant female.

I signed this petition because I came to know of a horrific incident that took place in your country, where three Vietnamese soldiers tortured, skinned alive, eviscerated and barbecued two monkeys - a male and a pregnant female.

Photographs of this sadistic and criminal event on the internet have shocked tens of thousands of people worldwide, with the extent of the horrible brutality depicted. What is even more shocking, and very worrying at the same time, is that the soldier who had posted these pictures on Facebook, later said that he was not aware that he did anything wrong.

As you would surely know, the link between animal abuse and crimes against humans has been well documented over several decades.

Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the last 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized the connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children. Other research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common forms of violence, including child abuse, spouse abuse, and elder abuse.

According to a 1997 study done by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and North-eastern University, animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people and four times more likely to commit property crimes than are individuals without a history of animal abuse.

That said, we ask the Government of Vietnam to severely punish those responsible for this heinous crime and thus, set an example against animal abuse in your country. The abusers must be locked up, because it is proven that people who can commit such crimes against animals rarely stop there; they are very likely to harm other humans, especially children or other vulnerable people.

We would also like to draw your attention to the fact that one of the abusers said that he was not aware that he did “something wrong”, clearly indicating he lacks the moral values to differentiate right from wrong.

Sadly, this is a phenomenon often observed when we do not educate our children from a young age about animal rights and animal welfare. If we did, we would likely see a drop in not just animal abuse, but also human abuse worldwide.

Teaching children from a young age to respect ALL life and not to harm animals, is of benefit to society as a whole, and we ask the Vietnamese government to listen to many of their citizens who are asking to introduce a mandatory animal rights and animal welfare education in all primary schools because it appears from this incident, that some Vietnamese citizens do not realize that torturing and killing sentient beings is wrong and that it is a criminal act.

The implementation of an awareness program for soldiers would also seem appropriate - given that even the authorities have acknowledged that there is a need for education, both in animal rights and animal welfare / conservation - so that similar incidents are prevented from occurring in the future.

We believe you will agree that this sort of incident has no place in the future of this planet that we all share, and we trust that you will implement the necessary measures to avoid such horrible crimes in the future.

Yours respectfully,

Whole Foods: Do Not Support the Use of Monkeys to Harvest Coconuts

I have been an ardent supporter of Whole Foods for decades, because I believe that we share the same values--that all creatures deserve to live a humane life, no matter how long or short that life may be, and that it is our responsibility to engage in environmentally friendly and ethical practices. Needless to say, I was surprised and disconcerted when I saw coconut water from Thailand being sold as Whole Foods' 365 Coconut Water. Having spent a month in Thailand and witnessing a countless number of tethered monkeys atop piles of coconut, I saw firsthand how monkeys were treated. They are used to harvest coconuts because each monkey can harvest up to 800 coconuts per day compared to 100 coconuts by one person. The monkeys are tethered or caged 24/7, sometimes with little to no opportunity for socialization (depending on their owners). I stayed down the beach from a man who owned an "aggressive" monkey he used to harvest coconuts, and warned people how "dangerous" the tethered monkey was. No animal deserves to be chained. Whole Foods needs to guarantee that they do not and will never support the use of monkeys to harvest the coconuts for their products. As conscientious consumers, we deserve to know the source of Whole Foods’ products before we buy them.

As conscientious consumers, we deserve to know the Thailand source of your 365 Coconut Water and how they harvest the coconuts. We need your guarantee that you do not and will never support the use of monkeys to harvest coconuts, a practice that is prevalent in the country. All animals deserve to live a humane life, no matter how long or short that life may be. I have always admired your company's willingness to step up and encourage people to be more environmentally and ethically responsible. It is your responsibility to uphold that mission and lead the charge in promoting environmentally conscious products.

[Your name]

KIDNAPPED AND SOLD FOR RESEARCH: STOP TRADE IN NIGHT MONKEYS
Petitioning Ambassador of Brazil
KIDNAPPED AND SOLD FOR RESEARCH: STOP TRADE IN NIGHT MONKEYS

KINSHIP CIRCLE

Petition by
KINSHIP CIRCLE

They’re little. Cute. Wide-eyed. And each year, more than a thousand are stolen from Amazon jungles in Colombia. “Night monkeys” sell for $50 a head because acclaimed malaria researcher, Dr. Manuel Elkin Patarroyo, thinks the nocturnal primates are ideal models for experimentation. Patarroyo directs FIDIC, the Immunology Institute of Colombia Foundation, a facility that pays poor Peruvian and Brazilian natives just across the Amazon River to trap and illegally move night monkeys over unguarded borders. At least 1600 are annually sold for malaria research, even though experimenters are no closer to finding a cure

Peru, Brazil and Colombia have turned a blind eye on the illicit night monkey trade because of its financial incentive for indigenous tribes. Ask ambassadors at Peruvian, Brazilian and Colombian embassies (in your country) to pressure national/local authorities to sponsor alternative livelihoods for their people and protect native wildlife.

Ambassador of Brazil, Embassy Of Brazil In Canada
Embassador of Peru, Embassy of Peru In The United Kingdom
Ambassador of Colombia, Embassy Of Colombia In Canada
Ambassador of Colombia, Embassy Of Colombia In Australia
Embassador of The Republic Of Peru, Embassy Of The Republic Of Peru In France

Ambassador of Colombia, Embassy Of Colombia In The United States
Consulate General Of Brazil, Consulate General Of Brazil In The United Kingdom
Ambassador Luis Miguel Valdivieso Montano, Embassy of Peru
Ambassador of Colombia, Embassy Of Colombia In England (UK)
I respectfully ask ambassadors of Colombia, Peru and Brazil to take strong action against traffic in night monkeys for animal research. Please demand that local and national authorities investigate this huge cross-border commerce that threatens nocturnal primates of the Amazon.

I was shocked to learn that 1,600 or more night monkeys are annually captured and sold for $50 per animal to the FIDIC, Immunology Institute of Colombia Foundation for use in malaria studies. Dr. Manuel Elkin Patarroyo has conducted the experiments for years without oversight or rehabilitation plans. Some monkeys, sick and frail, are thrown back into jungle.

The research itself has proven largely futile, with no cure for malaria in sight. Nocturnal primates, induced with malaria inside a stressful laboratory setting, cannot produce clinical symptoms or data relevant to human disease processes.

Clearly, this trade is inhumane, with utter disregard for native primate populations. FIDIC primate sales support poor Peruvian and Brazilian natives just across the Amazon River. Rather than turn a blind eye, governments ought to support the work of primate conservationists like Angela Maldonado, recipient of the 2010 Whitley Fund For Nature’s “Green Oscar,” for her efforts to find legitimate livelihoods for the Tikuna tribe.

Please let your country's authorities know that citizens worldwide strongly object to the black market trade in night monkeys.
