☆Kumamoto prefecture. The example of “zero animal culling” is nearby.

Both “Kumamoto Prefecture Animal Administration Center” and “Kumamoto City Animal Welfare Center” are in Kumamoto city.

“Kumamoto City Animal Welfare Center” is attracting attention for being a pioneer of zero culling.
“Kumamoto Prefecture Animal Administration Center” killed animal victims of the Kumamoto earthquake.

Volunteers from the same humane associations support both centers, and cooperate to help find foster families.
In spite of that, what difference differentiates between saved animals and those that will be slaughtered?

They have an example of “zero animal culling” nearby.

 

Kumamoto Nichinichi News paper. March 4.2017.

The example of zero animal culling.

In the top page of our news paper “Takarabako (treasure box)“ dated February 23, there was a poem named “Important thing”, written by a fifth grade elementary student.
“I want to protect the life of animals” “I want to abolish animal culling” “Also to the animal” “Precious life”

A heartbreaking case became clear.
“Kumamoto prefecture animal Administration Center” (Higashi-ku, Kumamoto city) resumed the killing of dogs last December.
5 months before that they killed, all together, 14 cats.
Kumamoto prefecture temporarily stopped killing dogs and cats, pets afflicted by the Kumamoto earthquake in April, 2016.

Kumamoto governor Kabashima held an urgent press interview, and explained, “Those cats might give harmed someone, and may have carried disease.”
The governor pledged to aim for zero culling during the gubernatorial election last March.
He included that pledge as part of the prefectural government administration policy last December.
This is the opposite of that pledge.
Moreover, it was crisis-afflicted pets.
He must be irritated.

A civic volunteer who helped save animals by finding foster families pointedly asked “Did that cat really have it’s claws out?“ and “Was treatment for that cat really impossible?”.
Seeing this kind of culling at the center leads to increased distrust.

On the other hand, it is known that Kumamoto city animal welfare center has, since many years ago, risen to the challenge of zero culling, ahead of the whole country,
They continued to take care of dogs and cats, hold adoption events, and also persuade owners who knew their pets would be killed to embrace the center staff’s “Hate to kill” ideas.
Such steady action needs veterinarians and volunteers who have a good, trusting relationship with staff.

We can appreciate that Kagoshima prefecture set a policy of zero culling.
However, it is necessary to maintain that system with appropriate staff and budget.
They have an example of “zero animal culling” nearby.

What Kumamoto Kousaikai, which is funded by Kumamoto Animal Administration Center, did with trust money of 100 million yen a year.

※They killed 14 afflicted cats during the period when they should not have done so without permission.
※They didn’t report on it to Kumamoto prefecture.
※Those 14 cats were killed because they tore a bag of the cat food, which was to be supper supplies.
※The director of the center (Kousaikai) knew it.
※If they had given those 14 cats to volunteers, they would still be alive.

We wanted to live.
Please raise your voice loudly for us.

Please ask the governor to prosecute Kumamoto Kousaikai to avoid repetition of such tragedies.
Failure to understand could result in further killing.

☆Kumamoto prefecture governor Urashima should prosecute Kumamoto Kousaikai.

March 3, 2017
☆Kumamoto prefecture governor Urashima should prosecute Kumamoto Kousaikai.

In order to avoid killing lost pets, Kumamoto prefecture stopped euthanasia in the animal administration center after the Kumamoto earthquake.
Volunteers worked hard to find new families for many dogs and cats in the center.

But behind that…
What Kumamoto Kousaikai, which is funded by Kumamoto animal administration center did:

※They killed 14 afflicted cats during the period when they should not have done so without permission.
※They didn’t report on it to Kumamoto prefecture.
※Those 14 cats were killed because they tore a bag of the cat food, which was to be supper supplies.
※The director of the center (Kousaikai) knew it.
※If they had given those 14 cats to volunteers, they would still be alive.

The Kumamoto prefecture governor, Mr. Urashima, should prosecute Kumamoto Kousaikai.

***************************

☆To the governor of Kumamoto prefecture, Mr. Ikuo Urashima.

Inquiry about Kumamoto Kousaikai.

Dear sir,

I saw an interview about the scandal of the Kumamoto animal administration center by Kumamoto Kousaikai.
I sympathize with you during this difficult time.
You said that you are sorry about it.
However I would like to suggest that you prosecute Kumamoto Kousaikai, as was done with the animal casualties case at Kanagawa animal welfare center.
I would like to know your opinion and hope to get your answer within a week.

The killing of 14 cats at the Kumamoto Kousaikai, in the Kumamoto animal administration center, violated the “Act on Welfare and Management of Animals, Article 2” and can be seen as abuse.
Also they harmed the property of the prefecture according to “Criminal law Article 261 (property destruction)”.
I request that Kumamoto prefecture cooperate with related parties in an investigation into a possible violation of laws, and instigate legal proceedings with the police department.
I would like to ask your show of determination to avoid other such scandals, by prosecuting in accordance with law.
I would like to ask you, as a public employee and public institution, to follow the Criminal Procedure Code Article 239 Clause 2, “A government official or local government official shall file an accusation when they believe an offense has been committed.”

☆Cooperative rescue activity in Fukushima in February. It is too cold….

Preparation before going to Fukuoka.
Tried to make it so the cat does’t notice it’s a capture cage.
Okuma and Futaba were closed by the barricade as “difficult return” areas.
We can’t end this activity without the rescue of all the cat’s.

This is the food from your support.

I use a normal car with snow tires only for Winter, not the usual smaller car.
I can load more than usual, but the gasoline expense and expressway charges are higher.
We never know when it will snow, so I’ll use this car until March.

This time, 5 days of activity started with Matatabi & Nekokatsu, and then I was the last one after Maria.

Madao made something to keep crows out.

0222-4_20170303140922e1a.jpg



Set the food deeper in the inventively devised capture cage.

0222-5_20170303140924e0d.jpg




Set it at a high place to avoid wild boar.

0222-6_20170303140942999.jpg




It’s such a heavy job, setting 2 weeks supply of food at a higher place.

Landscape changes to the color of radioactive contamination waste.

Today, the wind was very strong and cold.
My left hand and left foot were getting cold, and couldn't move well because of numbness and pain.
I felt so sad, but the plum blossoms healed me, so gently, as Spring is just around the corner.

I have left the barricade at just right time.
The screening test for radio activity showed a higher exposure reading than usual.

Take off the mask and drink some water.
After that I went to Tomioka, where the dismantling continues.

Usually I return to Naraha base, and wash the dirty capture cages.
But it is too cold outside after dark.
So I decided to bring it back to Kawasaki.

Thank you so much for your great work everyone.
Also thank you so much for your great support as always.

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
