Rescue Action LX (October 2020)

I am tired of counting our rescue actions. So I will just write that in a few nights we took out of grief and suffering 217 hens.

There are places we visit more that once. We remember how girls look shortly after they are stocked in these halls. They are calm, they let us pet them and hold them in our arms, people in safe homes are often amazed how beautiful they are. The time goes by, some are dying, some are surviving and those who are still alive are loosing their minds, strenght and will to live. To every tiny impuls they react insanely, they are frightened by light, sound, they scream a lot and flap their wings and people in their safe homes pity them and tell us that it’s so terrible what people did to them. We sometimes go to rescue them just a couple of days before human hands snatch them out of their suffering just to load them into transport to be slaughtered. In their last days those animals are letargic, surrendered and some of them will not survive this even in their new home. I already know this when I take them in my arms.

Rescue Action LIX & In Memory of Mike Hill (June 2020)

We lie in a cornfield and wait for the sunset. It is raining. We are wet and muddy. In front of us these is a fence, behind the fence there are several buildings, white and silent. Tens of thousands of birds are in these buildings, most people perceive them only as cackling machines for the production of eggs.

As if birds could not be desperate, feel hope or desire. As if they couldn’t enjoy caress and closeness and happiness. As if only a human being had a meaning and everything else was just for humans need and consumption.

Rescue Action LVII (May 2020)

Crushed and beaten lives. Dot. Dust, stink and feathers. Dot. Arrive, leave. Dot. Take someone with us, leave someone behind. Dot. Cry and bang my head on the steering wheel. Dot. To be happy for every animal we have stolen from the underworld. Dot. Don‘t stop breathing. Dot. Return. Dot.

Rescue Action LVII (March 2020)

There are two rescue actions in this report. We took 7 hens in the first action and 17 hens in the second action to safety. These 24 birds live with kind people and are no longer just a commodity.

The egg industry is creative and adaptable to recieve the best profits. Well, what are other animals, plants, rocks, water, air and actually the whole world for, right? A life that doesn’t turn into profit is not worth living, is it? That is the meaning of everything as far as one can reach, right?

Rescue action LVI & Support Joseph Dibee (February 2020)

This report contains two rescue actions. We took away 9 turkeys from people who made business of stealing, mutilating and destroying their lives. On the way to their new home I saw a young doe followed by another. I stopped the car, turned the engine off and watched them run across the field to the forest. I let tears and despair wet and wrinkle my eyes.

Rescue action LV & In memory of Bill „Avalon“ Rodgers

I stop the car in the forest on the side of the road. Several people get out with the necessary equipment and get lost among the trees. Me and Petra are going to park the car. Later we meet with others near the object. When the patrols are on their spots we go to the large metal door. The silence and stink is everywhere.

This report contains 3 rescue actions in which we liberated 67 animals. 26 animals on the first action, 23 on the second and on third wee took 18 of them. We did not ask the businessmen, politicians nor the consumers. We did not care about the public opinion. Why should we?

Rescue Action LIII (October 2019)

Here I am again opening cages inside this madhouse for at least a thousand time. I pull chickens out and try to keep their wings close to their body. Some of them remain calm, some are terrified and I don’t blame them. Born in hatchery, called for mom and she wasn’t there. Just hands of a man that separated them to different boxes, to be killed or live in hell.

Rescue Action LII (October 2019) & Support Marius (Marie) Mason

We broke in a factory farm where rabbits are caged in dark place just to breed more and more bunnies until they reach the sufficient weight to be slaughtered. From that cage we took rabbit mom and 10 little white tufts with legs. I asked our rescuing partner, girl who calls herself “Bird” to write a few sentences about things she saw and how she experienced them. (MK)

Rescue Action LI (October 2019)

The driver stops the car on the edge of the forest, we get out and take our tools. He drives away we approach the object and try to hide in the shadow of the forest, where is silence. The closer we are to the factory farm, the worse the smell gets. The stink means that the buildings are full of animals. What a sad confirmation.

Rescue Action L (October 2019)

Lukas helps me to pull myself up to the window. It’s a small window and the nails are protruding out of its old frame. About two meters below me I see the chicks. I climb down to them, stand there for a moment and look around. I see those who are alive beeping, running and laying around. I see those who are dead in various stages of decay. The same view as many times before.

Rescue Action XLIX (August 2019) & Support Eric King

We’ve been trying to get into this building for a long time and now it finally worked out. This was the so-called cage-free factory farm. We call it a carpet. That’s because as chicks grow up, you can’t see the floor, it’s just one chick crammed next to another, it’s basically a carpet made of bodies.

Open rescue XLVIII (July 2019)

On our way to new home for rescued animals we are driving through the night forest. Three ducks are chatting in the trunk and one duck is heavily breathing and resting on my colleague’s lap. She puts her beak in to the plastic lid with water and drinks a little bit. Then she puts her head in colleague’s hands and falls asleep.

The hell, projected out of business and indifference, those ten long white houses with tinny barn door that Luke and my close relatives opened, has 4 less inhabitants.

Open rescue XLV (October 2018) & In Memory Lola Veg

We saved 48 hens from suffering, crying and waiting for death. We saved them from a place made for trader’s profit that politicians protect and consumers pay for. We did not ask any of them. Why should we???

We’ve climbed the fence, opened the door and took the hens out of that place.

Now they are in new homes with people who make the world a better place for them. Now they can spread their wings and run free. They have sun instead of artificial light. Fresh air instead of a fan. Weaker ones can hide from the stronger ones.

It is not normal that animals are kept in such conditions and for such purposes. It is normal that we do not leave them there.
