He killed a pigeon ... and was arrested!

Hard to believe, but a taxi driver in Japan intentionally drove into a flock of pigeons, killing one of them … and was then arrested!

 

According to an article by The Guardian, the suspect Atsushi Ozawa told police, “Roads are for people. It’s up to the pigeons to avoid cars,” after he plowed into the flock at close to 37 miles per hour -- miraculously killing only one.

 

Thank goodness a witness was able to call the police in time for them to arrest the driver, and declare his action as “highly malicious." [1]

 

Tragically, as we know, it is extremely rare for animals to ever get justice. 

 

Hopefully this rare act of justice is a sign of good things to come.

Now, if only this act of justice could be put into effect beyond this one incident.

 

Please remember, each and every one of us has the power to make a profound difference in the lives of animals. 

 

When we see an animal suffering, remember that our voice can be their salvation.

 

Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. - Martin Luther King Jr. [2]

 

Whether it is reporting abuse, educating others, volunteering or supporting animal organizations, your involvement can make a difference.



While we celebrate the arrest of the abusive taxi driver in Japan, the bad news is that for the vast majority of animals, there is no justice. 

 

Sadly, this is true for the millions of stray dogs and cats around the world.

Worldwide an estimated 600 million stray dogs and 480 million cats roam the streets on any given day.

 

Each year they give birth to over one billion homeless pups and kittens, and most are born into a life of hunger and suffering. 

 

At the age of 6 months, those who are still alive also begin to reproduce -- creating a Cycle of Suffering that is repeated every year.

 

This Cycle of Suffering has become the Number One cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats worldwide.


Approximately 50 countries have essentially no laws against cruelty to animals. Strays are killed by inhumane methods including poisoning, beating them to death, shooting, crushing them to death in the back of garbage trucks, electrocution, mixing food with broken glass (which causes them to bleed to death) and worse. 

 

Here in the United States, tax dollars have been spent to kill stray dogs for the last 100-plus years.


We believe this situation is outrageous and has gone on for far too long -- this is why we are focused on the root of the problem.

Our nonprofit science-based mission is: 

 

To end the Number One cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats -- overpopulation -- by developing a safe, permanent-lasting, one-time birth control cookie for stray dogs and cats. 

 

A cookie that will only need to be eaten one time, and it will in effect spay or neuter -- without surgery. 

 

A one-time cookie that will artificially induce a type of human menopause -- but in dogs and cats, without using hormones.


We are a small grassroots nonprofit charity, carrying out work that pharmaceutical companies should be doing -- but they refuse. 

 

We receive no help from any of the drug companies, no grants from the government, no help from any dog food companies or other large companies. 

 

Instead we rely 100% on small donations. Small gifts from people who care, like you.  

 

We are dedicated to ending this global problem -- and a gift of any amount will help -- no gift is too small.


If you're like me and you don't have much to spare right now, there is an easy way to help for $1 a month.

 

Yes, the good news is that each of us can pitch in and help animals now for only $1 a month!


Together we will save entire future generations of animals, from cruelty and suffering.

 

Thank you in advance for helping and for caring!
