Arvid, one of our techie gurus in Hong Kong, has just set up an RSS feed for my blog. For those of you know don’t know what this is, it basically saves you time by letting you know if the blog has been updated.

Wake me in the spring

2008年02月20日, 14:48下午 |

Winters can be pretty chilly in northern Vietnam, but this is one little bear that knows how to stay warm. Mara, one of the three adorable cubs rescued from a smuggler, has made herself a snug little bed and, luckily, our bear manager Amanda had her camera at the ready.

Hope and Shame

I’m so sorry to have to bring you this news, but sadly, our two little puppies rescued from the market did not pull through. At least their last days were filled with love and kindness thanks to their lovely guardian, Guangzhou vet John Wu. Rest in peace sweet Hope and Shame. We won’t let your deaths be in vain.

The market also doubles as a slaughterhouse – a round metal drum with orange spikes used for “de-furring” the cats and dogs sits just outside a burning cauldron that will be cooking their meat for customers towards lunchtime.

The horrors of Maoshan – Part 1

2008年02月04日, 21:34下午 |

Recently, I visited Maoshan Live Animal Market in Guangzhou with two of our China team, Christie and Rainbow. Such visits are probably the hardest part of our work at Animals Asia, but they’re also among the most important. We must keep monitoring this situation and exposing the truth about these hell-holes. These are my notes from the visit:

Thank you! Paws now snug and warm!

2008年02月02日, 16:50下午 |

Grateful thanks to everyone who rose to the knitting challenge, feverishly creating beautiful mittens for our bears to keep them snug and warm in surgery! It’s no exaggeration to say that we have been inundated with mitts and truly touched by the kindness of you all who heard our plea. We have so many (and lots still coming apparently!) that there may be enough to send to other bear groups working in the field – it’s just wonderful that so many bears in so many countries can now benefit from people thousands of miles away who listened and responded to our cry for help.

Goodbye gentle Willow

2008年02月01日, 16:55下午 |

I still believe in miracles, but today the miracle went to someone else. As we held Willow’s paws, while Heather injected the fluid that would end his life, we wept. It hardly seems a week ago to the day when we were all so hopeful as this brave bear was into his third day of recovering from the massive tumour removed from his liver.

US doctors speak out

2008年01月29日, 15:07下午 |

In December 2007, full-page reports appeared over three days in Hong Kong's Chinese-language Wen Wei Po newspaper, the mouthpiece of the Chinese Government in Hong Kong. The reporter undertook a four-month undercover investigation with the help of Animals Asia, and wrote a series of features that exposed the true horrors of bear farming today.

Three-legged friends

2008年01月27日, 10:07上午 |

Lovely Simba is continuing to make a big impression on his fellow residents at the sanctuary. Here he is meeting Kevin, who is also three-legged. As you can see, Kevin’s not too sure what to make of this little golden scallywag, but he’s clearly enthralled!
