Notes from a small dog: The dotted line…

UK CITIZENS – PLEASE BE AWARE:

Under the current EU laws, animal sentience, and the existence of their feelings, is recognised and must be taken into full account as new laws and rulings are passed.

The UK government have QUIETLY VOTED to EXCLUDE animal sentience from the laws being passed to define our nation as we leave the EU.

Although the Animal Welfare Act of 2006 does offer SOME protection to domestic animals, it does not mention animal sentience, nor does it protect wild animals or those in laboratories from abuse..

There are many things wrong in the world today, affecting every level of society, but Animals have ONLY the voice WE give them (and please don’t forget that humans are animals too).

There are a number of petitions being run to request the UK government to reconsider this decision.

Sue and Ani have provided a link to one, at the end of their post.

Please sign the petition, and share / reblog Sue and Ani’s original blog post.

THANK YOU…

I am an animal. Therefore, I am not sentient…

I have no emotions.

I do not feel happiness…

… joy…

… or fear.

I have no curiosity, because I am not a sentient being.

I have no understanding of the finer emotions, like gentleness, or sharing.

No understanding of wonder, excitement…

…or hope.

I do not suffer when I am ill.

I need no comforting…

I cannot laugh…

…or be bored…

…and I have no sense of humour.

I feel no guilt…because I am not conscious of wrongdoing…

…and I cannot feel love.

My two-legs disagrees.

  1. This isn’t entirely true, sorry. The rules and standards we have in place now, and have been debated over the last 10 days or so, are more stringent than those protecting “live stock” in Europe. They do need to go further, I agree, especially with regards to stunning etc, with regards to halal, but if you look to the EU, animals basically are there to be, well thrown from church towers or skewered by matadors. Not everything you read on the internet is true, guys.

  2. Animals ARE sentient creatures! They are even a lot better of many hundred thousand or more humans… Animals never turn you their back… and the reason because I DO protect them, is because I believe that we all have to care for them, and I want to give the example! :-)claudine

  3. Doggies are sentient beings and, am I wrong if I say that civilized behavior seems to be reverting to a less humane state of being? If we just sit and do nothing, and hope that someone else will take a stand for humane human behavior, than all we will have left is a less humane world, a savage world. Are the Brutes winning? Thank you for sharing, Chris.

    • The mechanism of creating change is the same on both sides of the equation, good or bad. Alone, few of us are in position to make a great deal of difference, but by taking a personal stand and making the changes within our own sphere of influence, we are all capable of creating change…and when enough stand together, change becomes inevitable.
