Denver, Colorado; weed is legal, hallucinogenic mushrooms are legal, one rooster per household is legal, pitbull type dogs are illegal. All that and Colorado has a first gentleman who claims to be vegan. Throughout the country breed specific legislation has proven to be ineffective. In fact #BSL has proven to enforce the outlaw image which many dog fighters want.
Still to this day those who are investigated, prosecuted, and occasionally convicted of bloodsports are people of color. Meanwhile the dominant population fighting animals is middle to upper middle class whites.
We are in the beginning stages of creating an organization to educate the public and law enforcement about bloodsports. Investigations, prosecution and education about bloodsports and the people who participate has too little focus and needs more attention from media and law enforcement.
Please follow our new organization on facebook @alliancecombatinganimalbloodsports Instagram has yet to let us create a profile no matter how short we make the name!
The cock fighting season is coming to an end in the United States. Many birds who cockers deem not fit to fight are just tossed to the roadside, literally. This rooster had been dead a few hours when I found him. He was dubbed, spurs cut to the bone, and tagged; which are signs he was bred and raised to fight. Bloodsport is a multimillion dollar entity that is rarely prosecuted for the sake of the animals. Most charges that finally go to court are based on tax fraud, gambling, drugs, or immigration.
Too many assumptions are made as to who fights animals. This prejudice often gives strength and anonymity to the fighting communities which are mostly white, middle to upper middle class.
Billy was born and rescued on christmas day, making today his 6 month birthday. Send Billy some birthday wishes by checking out and sponsoring @xvxdanxvx , who is running a marathon to support Dark Mountain. We are all volunteer and a 501c3 so all funds go directly to the care and well being of the animals. #tongueouttuesday #veganstraightedge #vegan #govegan #whatvegansdo #fortheanimals #veganrunner #veganathelete #ethics #ethicalvegan #sanctuary #xvx
@roostersanctuary and Dark Mountain are building a special needs facility for those who need the most care. Any day we could have nine to fifty animals that need special attention. To give them the best care we will be converting two shipping containers into a habitat that allows animals to receive the best care while still enjoying the outdoors. The containers will be moved to our new location when that time comes.
In honor of a friend who has helped me from the beginning of this project; we are dedicating one wing of the special needs unit to Angela Fowler. @726fowler235
The second half of the special needs unit will be dedicated to @emxmortem ’s companion Jackson Paw Lick.
If you would like to help with this project, please donate thru the links in bio. Share, re-post, and get the word out there. The more help we receive, the more animals we can rescue and care for.
Once we move to our new location we will be adding to the special needs unit with one or two more containers which we already have.
We are striving for full self sufficiency at our new location. All power will be provided by biodiesel and solar. Maybe some wind generators thrown in there too.
Thanks to everyone who has donated in order for us to help others.
Check out @xvxdanxvx and his progression towards running his first marathon which he is using to raise funds for Dark Mountain.
