9 Animal Moms Who Need You for Mother’s Day – News

These moms don’t want cards, flowers or chocolates – they want to be free. Know their stories and how you can help these mothers of other species.

Pigs are friendly, loyal, playful and intelligent animals that live in family groups, cooperate with each other and build nests for their young. Piglets form strong bonds with each other and use complex means of communication such as screaming and growling. But inmates on factory farms don’t get a chance to indulge these natural behaviors: they’re crammed into concrete pens, never see the light of day, and male piglets are often still castrated alive. Mothers are confined to gestation pens so narrow they cannot even turn around and their piglets are taken away after just a few weeks to be fattened before being sent to the slaughterhouse. Make the decision to opt for a vegan diet. Order PETA’s “Guide to Vegan Buddhism” packed with tips and recipes.

At SeaWorld, an orca named Katina was forced to breed when she was just 9 years old (at least five years before the age at which she would naturally breed in her environment) and was even crossed with her own child. Four of her babies died in captivity at SeaWorld. This story is unfortunately not an isolated case, as many orcas in captivity are forced into incestuous relationships, which do not exist in the wild, and dozens of stillborn babies and miscarriages have been recorded, likely due to conditions of detention and inbreeding. This is also the case in France, for example, the orca Keijo was born from the union of Wikie and her half-brother Valentin at Marineland in Antibes. Help free Lolita, Wikie, Inouk, Moana and Keijo and place them in a coastal sanctuary.

  1. cats and bitches

The best way to help bitches and cats is to prevent them from reproducing completely! Faced with the number of animal abandonments in France, there are simply too many animals and too few homes ready to receive them. Not sterilizing your animals is to be responsible for this overpopulation. Some might think letting your cat or dog have “just one litter” is no big deal, but a single litter can quickly spawn hundreds or even thousands of animals from successive generations that came out of it. Help ensure each animal has a loving home by promoting spaying and adoption.

  1. the cows

All milk production involves the cruel exploitation of the mother-child bond. It starts even before the birth of calves as in the dairy industry cows are forcefully and repeatedly inseminated from an early age to give birth to a calf and produce milk. Newborn calves are often taken from their mothers shortly after birth so that the milk that was supposed to feed them can be consumed by humans. Cows, like humans and other mammals, produce milk to feed their young, and separation causes sadness and distress for both mother and calf. Distraught mother cows often mourn their lost babies. The best way to help animals abused by the dairy industry is to fill your fridge with delicious vegan products.

After looking for food, mother seals must quickly find their pups in a crowd of hundreds – if not thousands – of seals. So mother and baby rely on her incredible voice recognition power to find each other. But they can never reunite if one of them is killed in the cruel annual seal slaughter. I appeal to Canada to end this massacre.

  1. bears

A mother black bear forms a close bond with her cubs who stay by her side until they are about a year and a half old. Every year, thousands of these animals are killed by the fur industry. In some Canadian provinces, there are no restrictions even on the slaughter of mothers who have young and are still nursing, resulting in the death of entire families, as the orphaned calves cannot survive without their mothers. Instead of supporting the shameful slaughter of black bears for the ceremonial caps of the Queen’s Guard, the UK should set an example of compassion – urge authorities to switch to luxurious and innovative faux fur.

  1. Crocodiles

Crocodiles are sentient and intelligent beings, capable of using tools and cooperating within a group. In the wild, mothers care for their eggs and protect their young until they are 3 years old – something they cannot do on exotic fur farms, where eggs are laid in incubators. Locking up and killing animals to skin them for fashion accessories is cruel and outdated. Encourage Hermès to stop using crocodile and alligator skin.

    1. ostrich

Ostriches are fascinating and intelligent birds. The male and female share guarding the eggs: the mother, whose plumage allows her to camouflage herself, incubates the eggs during the day, while the father, whose plumage is dark, takes turns at night. In the wild, they take care of their young until they are 3 years old – but on intensive farms this is not allowed. The exotic feather and fur industry deprives them of everything natural to them and their life is a long and painful wait before a terrible and painful slaughter at just one year old. The feathers, some of which are ripped from the skin of ostrich in full consciousness, are used in costumes at the Moulin Rouge and at parties like Rio Carnival, as well as in feather dusters, boa constrictors and accessories. Don’t buy anything made with feathers and urge brands not to use ostrich leather.
