Royal Canin Bear Abuse Scandal and Suffering Fiaker Horses

This post is not about beauty. It's about animals that need our help.

I love animals, I have six pets myself, which some of you know, and I would do everything for them. Spend my last penny, sell all my make up. Everything. They are part of my family.

Today, there are two things I wanna talk about. Especially about the scandal with Royal Canin. Recently, pictures and videos were found that show bears hunted and abused by wild dogs for fun, sponsored by Royal Canin! And not for the first time, they sponsored a similar event in 2012 as well.

I'm sure everyone who owns a pets and even most of the people who don't know Royal Canin. It's a large dog and cat food company, selling their products all over the world.

I've been a loyal customer for many years myself and that it is one of the reasons I feel so betrayed. They fooled me into believing that they are a good company. There is a petition which one can sign to increase the pressure on Royal Canin to truly take resonposibility, you can sign it here, please, please do. It only takes a minuted, costs nothing and might make a change.

I hate them so much for doing this, I wish they would all be shackled to a post as well and bitten for fun.

The other thing I wanna talk about are the Fiaker horses that are carrying around tourists through the center of Vienna every day. If you ever visited Vienna you know them and horses like them are in most big cities. I've seen them in New York for example too. In the hot months they are forced to stand in the sun all day without regular availability to food or water. Vier Pfoten has a petition for them as well, which you can sign here.

I don't wanna force anyone to do something, but it costs nothing, just a few minutes of your time.

I'm not perfect, but I do what I can to support animals. At the moment I'm trying to become a Vegan for example which is harder than I expected and from time to time when my account allows it my husband an I buy food and give it to the Wiener Tierschutzverein where hundreds of animals are waiting to find a new home. I prefer giving actual things like food or other supplies, because that way I know it will truly be of use.

I love my animals so much. Animals are pure and deserve our help, cause they can't speak for themselves. They need us to fight for their rights. So, let's try to do what we can. I'm sure some of you skipped this post, but for those who didn't, for you that read it til the end. I thank and hug you.
