@Regranned from @amandadecadenet - This is 16 year old #CyntoiaBrown . She was sex trafficked in this country and raped repeatedly until the day she shot her captor dead . It is unjust and heartbreaking that a young woman subjected to such terror and trauma should spend her life in jail . Listen to her words .She could be talking about so many abusers recently outed for sexual assault . The legal system is faulty and must be challenged in cases like this one .

@Regranned from @veganstreet - Over the last few years, all animal testing facilities in the US have quietly stopped their heinous tests on chimpanzees. Now the lab chimps are moving to sanctuaries where they’ll live out their lives in comfort (chimps live to an average of 50-60 years). Here’s an uplifting story in The New York Times about the transition: bit.ly/veganst-chimps

A large part of the of the reason those chimpanzees have been freed is years of tireless work by animal advocates to expose these injustices to the world. These brave advocates aren’t slowing down though, and they won’t stop (and neither will we) until all animal exploitation is a thing of the past.

@Regranned from @animalrightsofig - Breaking news from the @washingtonpost until further investigation from conservation groups there is a hold on lifting the ban on importing animals from trophy hunts. The administration is holding off on lifting the ban! Let's keep the pressure on. Sign petitions, make phone calls Call the Department of Fish and Wildlife and let them know NO IMPORTING ANIMALS FROM TROPHY HUNTS. #BanTrophyHunting - #regrann

Never before have I been more ashamed or disgusted to call myself an American, as I am today. Donald Trump is a total disgrace. Always has been, always will be. But this decision takes his cowardice to another level. As if our beloved elephants aren’t already in enough trouble. From the poaching crisis, human/wildlife conflict and worsening drought due to climate change, they are under immense pressure as it is. But now, thanks to our fake POTUS, they have to worry about wealthy, obnoxious, sociopathic and mostly AMERICAN assholes, who are hell bent on taking the lives of precious elephants, in order to prove their manhood. It doesn’t get more pathetic than that, folks. Totally and completely unforgivable. However, let me be clear: we WILL fight back. No matter how long it takes. I refuse to allow these magnificent gentle giants to be hunted into extinction. Not on my watch, Trump 🤬

Donald Trump has agreed to allow legally hunted elephant trophies to be imported to the United States from two African countries.

President Trump’s administration has reversed a Barack Obama-era ban on the remains of elephants killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia entering the US, arguing it can actually boost conservation efforts. --LIES-- There is no proof. The ban on imports of sport-hunted African elephant trophies from Zimbabwe was initially imposed by the Obama administration in 2014 as part of a national strategy for combating wildlife trafficking. “Additional killing of elephants in these countries, even if legal, is not sustainable and is not currently supporting conservation efforts that contribute towards the recovery of the species,” they said at the time. In the last ten years elephant numbers have dropped by 62%. There are fewer than 500,000 on the African continent today and conservationists have warned that by the end of the next decade, they could be extinct!Zambia’s elephant population has dropped from 200,000 in 1972 to just a little over 21,000, he adds.

URGENT PLEASE READ@Regranned from @fiona_hardie - Please read to understand the image posted
I have always had a great interest in Nosey, the elephant owned by Hugo Liebel and The Liebel Family Circus. She has been owned by them since 1988. Despite numerous citations against him for animal abuse, I believe over 200, Liebel has been allowed to continue to work this elephant to the bone.
She performs in their travelling road show across the country. I have seen photos where she is also hired out for weddings. So sad. She is only 35, she is an African elephant who was stolen from the wild and lives a life chained, she is arthritic and solitary.
4 days ago Nosey was confiscated and has been transported to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. Photos of her walking free in the great outdoors have already been posted by the sanctuary. It's a sight to behold and one in which I almost cried. I was so happy to see her....
But the fight is not over. You see Nosey's owners have set up a GO FUND ME to fight for Nosey to get her back. The picture here is to give you an update on #cathalinaliebel's fund raising activities and spouting off nonsense that Nosey has been stolen. People are contributing, I have watched this page and witnessed the increase in donations! There appears to be many circus lovers out there who just do not understand the cruelty.
So the fight is not over. We need to support @theelephantsanctuary and continue to raise our voices for Nosey to remain with them. Nosey is temporarily based at the sanctuary pending a further court case which the Liebels are obviously gearing up to fight. I for one was kind of hoping they would just go away. A little naive but I'm always hopeful! Her returning to them means her resuming her miserable life with the Liebel Family Circus and being forced to perform despite her poor health. Our help is needed to rally, donate and contribute in any way we can to keep Nosey free.
I love this girl and will be making a contribution by way of a donation and helping to spread the word far and wide to keep her current as so many people are doing. So as the hashtag goes, with an added word. #freenosey #foreverafter. We love you Nosey.

This is Gaew Ta, she has suffered at the hands of evil humans for almost all of her 60 ODD YEARS until now. She is blind, scared and scarred. After a lifetime of torture, degradation, humiliation, isolation and cruelty, some of the luckier elephants in Thailand find themselves in the excellent care of @phuketelephantsanctuary. These people are giving the noblest of creatures tender care, love, friendship and solace in their final years. After enduring the most evil and barbaric of human behaviour they are now finding that people can offer empathy, kindness, love and compassion. It was a most humbling experience. I was moved to tears on many occasions this afternoon for a variety of reasons. Keep up the good work 🙏🙏🙏 #thailand #phuket #gratitude #joy #love #compassion #empathy #humility. Today I visited @phuketelephantsanctuary - I was privileged to spend the afternoon with the elephants at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary. I met Madee, Kannika, Dok Gaew and Gaew Ta, as well as all of their smaller fur friends, I experienced the beauty of sanctuary life. To book, visit their website www.phuketelephantsanctuary.org They look forward to welcoming you to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, the first ethical sanctuary on the beautiful island of Phuket in southern Thailand 🐘 #PhuketElephantSanctuary #ThingsToDoInThailand #Phuket #Thailand #EthicalTourism #PhuketAttraction #Elephants #LoveElephants #Volunteer #ObservingElephants #Freedom
