Pattaya Expats Support Animal Rights

All of the members at a recent Pattaya City Expats Club listen Ned to the facts outlined by Mr. Duncan Macintosh, who spoke about the projects of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) organization. Everyone agreed that animal cruelty, which mainly occurs in Asia, must be stamped out, by applying pressure to the relevant governments concerned.

Pattaya, the 18th of April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Instead of speaking to the Pattaya City Expats Club about his role as the Managing Director of “Macintosh Money Management” company in Australia, Duncan Macintosh spoke about animal rights. He outlined how one of the projects of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) was in also in connection with the treatment of bears in China. Often these poor animals are confined to tiny cramped cages for around 30-years, with the purpose of collecting bile from their liver for medicinal purposes.

Other disgusting practices in Asia include the slow, painful killing of animals in the mistaken belief that it improves the flavour of the meat, and skinning furred animals alive. If an animal suffers pain, its muscles go very tense, with the result that the meat is tough, and professional fur hunters will tell you that skinning a screaming, kicking animal alive would be much more difficult and definitely not easier, as these backward races believe.

Most of these countries have no laws regarding the treatment of animals and the world treaties that they sign are rarely enforced within their own countries. One of the worst offenders is China, which is very sensitive to criticisms about these barbaric practices, so applying political pressure to the Chinese and other countries such as Hong Kong is the way for everyone to go. For supposedly civilized nations, they still carry out cruel, inhumane practices that are worse than some of the poorest countries on earth.

WSPA are not a radical group, and are not against the killing of animals, provided that it is done humanely and in a proper manner. Duncan Macintosh had several petition forms available for members to sign, as he believes that putting a lot of world political pressure on countries such as china is the only way to change them. WSPA has a website at www.wspa-international E-mail thailandenquiries@wspa-asia.org (or Duncan Macintosh can be contacted at dm887394@bigpond.net.au )
