8 stvari koje radite pogre┼íno ukoliko volite ┼żivotinje / 8 things you’re doing wrong if you love animals

For English Scroll Down ­čÖé

1. Prva i najo─Źiglednija stavka – jedete ih. U tom slu─Źaju vi niste ljubitelj ┼żivotinja ve─ç ku─çnih ljubimaca. Ali po┼íto je to jako op┼íirna tema, posveti─çu se njoj u nekom od narednih postova. Ipak, mo┼żete da pogledate o tome i na videu ispod:

 

2. Kupujete ku─çne ljubimce umesto da ih usvojite. Napolju postoji mnogo pasa i ma─Źaka bez ikakvog sigurnog skloni┼íta, a kamoli doma. Za┼íto podr┼żavati odgajiva─Źnice koje ┼ítancuju pse kao na traci zarad li─Źnog profita, kada ima toliko lutalica koje sanjaju da imaju svoj dom? Mo┼żda vam lutalica ne zvu─Źi dovoljno atraktivno, ali verujte da ─çe ona imati vi┼íe ljubavi i zahvlanosti prema vama nego kupljeni pas.

3. Konzumirate kravlje mleko. Najpre, sama ─Źinjenica koja obja┼ínjava dosta toga je ta da je veliki broj ljudi alergi─Źno na mleko. Tako─Ĺe dosta njih nije tolerantno na laktozu. To je iz prostog razloga tako jer je priroda napravila sastav mleka koji je potreban gove─Źetu da se zdravo razvije, a ne ljudima. Tako─Ĺe, teli─çi su odvojeni od svojih majki odmah po ro─Ĺenju kako bi se spre─Źilo njihovo konzumiranje mleka – da vi┼íe mleka ostane za prodaju. Nakon toga teli─çi se vode u klanice. Za┼íto umesto toga ne probate ukusnija, zdravija i hranljivija mleka kao ┼íto su sojino, pirin─Źano i bademovo mleko?

 

4. Nosite krzno. Na┼żalost, ┼żivotinje kao i ljudi, ne mogu da ┼żive bez najve─çeg organa na sebi, a to je ko┼ża. Tako da ukoliko ┼żelite da nosite krzno onda morate “ubiti” celu ┼żivotinju ili nekoliko njih, a nekad ─Źak i nekoliko desetina ┼żivotinjica, u zavisnoti od veli─Źine ┼żivotinje i du┼żine krza. Postoje ogrome farme krzna gde se ┼żivotinje dr┼że u nehumanim uslovima celog ┼żivota. Kavezi su im toliko mali da ne mogu ni da se okrenu, a na─Źin ubijanja je jo┼í suroviji – naj─Źe┼í─çe se krzno sa njih skida dok su jo┼í ┼żive, pa one uginu ili u toku procesa od bolova ili nakon ┼íto se krzno skroz svu─Źe sa njih i ostanu bez svoje ko┼że. ┬áZato toplo preporu─Źujem ve┼íta─Źka krzna koja sjajno izgledaju.

 

5. Koristite kozmetiku koja testira svoje proizvode na ┼żivotinjama. Jedan od najte┼żih oblika zloostavljanja ┼żivotinja jeste testiranje u laboratorijama. ┼Żivotinje su podvrgnute izuzetno nehumanim na─Źinima testiranja, gde naj─Źe┼í─çe i uginu sporo i bolno. Na internetu postoji mali milion video materijala iz laboratorija, ako imate hrabrosti trebalo bi da pogledate ┼íta sve pro┼żivljavaju ┼żiotinje tamo, kako bi shvatili zna─Źajnost biranja kozmeti─Źkih brendova koji ne testiraju na ┼żivotinjama. O tome koji brendovi testiraju na ┼żivotinjama a koji ne, mo┼żete pogledati na videu ispod koji sam napravila pre izvesnog vremena.

6. Idete u Zoolo┼íki vrt. ┼Żivotinje koje se dr┼że u zarobljeni┼ítvu daleko od svog prirodnog stani┼íta samo zarad ljudske zabave mi nikako ne ide u glavu, a pogotovo kako tako ne┼íto mo┼że biti legalno? U ve─çini slu─Źajeva, zoolo┼íki vrtovi nemaju pogodnih uslova za ┼żivot za te divlje ┼żivotinje koje dr┼że, a kamoli uslova sli─Źnih njihovim prirodnima stani┼ítima. Uglavnom su kavezi premali, a bazeni sa vodom prljavi.

7. Idete u cirkus.┬áOvo je ne┼íto pribli┼żno zoolo┼íkom vrtu, ali je ─Źak i gore. Mladun─Źad divljih ┼żivotinja su nasilno odvojena od majki i jo┼í od ranog perioda njihovog ┼żivota bivaju zlostavljana. Tako─Ĺe se dr┼że u malim kavezima i svakog dana su primorani da satima u─Źe trikove za publiku, nasilni─Źkim metodama – prebijanjem i kori┼í─çenjem struje. Ne razumem gde pi┼íe da jedan slon ili tigar treba da zna trikove? Kako je neko uop┼íte do┼íao na tu ideju?

8. Slikate se sa egzoti─Źnim ┼żivotinjama. Ironi─Źno, ali uglavnom veliki ljubitelji ┼żivotinja to rade. Ali da li su oni svesni ┼íta se de┼íava sa tim ┼żivotinjama pre nego ┼íto naprave tu glupu sliku? Drogiranje je samo jedna na listi stvari koje rade, kako bi ┼żivotinja bila mirna za sliku. Za vi┼íe o tome, napravila sam video pro┼íle godine koji mo┼żete pogledati ispod:

 

Sigurna sam da postoji jo┼í dosta stvari, ali ovo su one koje se naj─Źe┼í─çe de┼íavaju i to od strane ljubitelja ┼żivotinja. Trebalo bi da kriti─Źki razmislite o svakom koraku, da ne uzimate stvari zdravo za gotovo i ne pratite slepo ┼íta ljudi oko vas rade. Vi imate mo─ç da napravite promene, samo malo vi┼íe razmi┼íljanja ne bi bilo na odmet. ­čÖé

 

*8 things you are doing wrong if you love animals*

unnamed

1. Obviously, eating them. In that case you love pets, not animals. Because this is such a wide topic, I will dedicate one one of my future posts to it.

2. Buying pets instead of adopting. There are a lot of animals out there without home or a safe shelter. Why supporting breeders and overpopulation of dogs and cats when there’s plenty of them waiting for you? It may not be fancy enough, but it will be certainly more loving and grateful than the one you bought.

3. Consuming cow milk. First of all, the fact that explains a lot is that a lot of people are allergic to milk. Also a lot of them are intolerant to lactose. That is because all the ingredients in the cow’s milk are made for baby cow with all the nutritions made for it to live and survive, but not for humans. Also, calves are torn away from their mothers right after the birth so they would’t “waste” the milk that is supposed to be for sale. After that they go straight to slaughterhouse for veal. Why not try instead other tasty milks such as Soy, Rice and Almond milk.

4. Wearing fur. Unfortunately animals like humans, can’t live without their skin on, therefore if you want to wear fur then you need to kill the whole animal, or couple of them, sometimes dozens – depends on the size of the animal and the length of the fur. Animals at fur farm are kept in tiny cages where they can’t even turn, for their entire life, and are killed in beyond cruel ways such as skinning them alive. Faux furs are amazing and there will be one blog post about them!

5. Using brands that are tested on animals! One of the worst shapes of animal abuse is definitely the one in the laboratories. Animals are tortured until they die, and no animal will ever leave that laboratory alive. More about which brands are using animals for testings and which are not you can find in my video (which is by the way in Serbian language, but you’ll get the point with all the visuals) You can see it below:

6. Going to Zoo. Animals hold in captivity for human entertainment in order to see wild animals closer up bothers me – why is it even legal? In most of the cases that we could see on the internet, Zoos don’t even have good living conditions for the animals, not even close conditions to their natural habitats. The cages are too tiny and water tanks usually dirty. Free them all.

7. Going to Circus. This is something similar to Zoo, but even worse. Baby animals are torn apart from their mothers and since “childhood” abused, forced to learn tricks for hours each day and kept in tiny cages. Why the fuck should I see an elephant or a tiger doing tricks? How someone came up with that idea anyway?

8. Taking photos with exotic animals. Yes, this one is my favorite. Usually big animal lovers take those photos, which is completely ironic, but are they aware what happens to those animals before they take the freakin’ photo? Drugging them is one of the things in order to keep them calm for the photo. For more, of course, there is a video I made (and this video is luckily in English :)) You can see it bellow.

I am sure there are more things, but these are the most common surprisingly done by “big animal lovers”. You should have a critical approach for everything in life, not just take things for granted and “go with the flow” like other people around. You have the power to make changes, just a little bit more of thinking would be appreciated.
