The Heartbreaking Story of How Animals Are Bred for the European Pet Trade

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (134)

PETA Germany went undercover over a period of several months to investigate Dutch animal breeders who supply guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, birds and other small animals to major European pet shops.

Neglect. Sick, terrified animals. Rotting corpses. Cannibalism. They found horrors worse than they could ever have expected.

Read on to see some of the shocking images from the investigation.

Severe crowding and stress lead to bite injuries such as this one.

NL pet trade_room with cagesAnimals are “mass-produced” in dark, filthy facilities, where tiny cages are stacked from floor to ceiling.

NL pet trade_piles of cratesThey are kept in cramped cages for transport to wholesalers, who will then sell them to pet shops in the Czech Republic, Germany and the Netherlands.

NL pet trade_dead animalsMany don’t survive the harrowing conditions.

NL pet trade_more dead animalsThe investigators found many dead animals whose bodies were simply left to rot.

Numerous animals were forced to live amid their own excrement in filthy cages.

NL pet trade_thirsty rabbitMany of the animals were suffering from severe dehydration and jumped desperately at their water bottles after the investigators refilled them.

It was too late for these rabbits, who had died of thirst.

NL pet trade_birds in cageThese budgies had no room even to stretch their wings in the tiny space.

*****

The cruelty exposed in these facilities was not isolated: random investigations of small facilities that sell animals to large and small merchants also showed harrowing conditions. Undercover investigations – at roughly 15 breeding and wholesale outlets – documented more than a dozen apparent violations of the Dutch Animal Welfare Act. A criminal complaint was filed against a total of 11 breeders and wholesalers from Germany and the Netherlands.

Unsuspecting customers often have no idea about the horror from which these animals have come – or what kind of industry they’re unwittingly supporting.

THIS is what’s wrong with the pet trade. The best way to end the cruelty is to boycott animal breeders and always adopt rather than buying.

      I don’t understand, honestly. Those are all species that breed very fast anyway. anyone who occidentally got a pair of hamster/guine pigs/rabbits knows how many babies they produce, and how little it takes to just let their parents raise them. They could have a stable income from keeping few pairs in the same space, in better conditions. They would not loose so many to illness and death. they would need to invest less time and money in feeding, cleaning and watering them all. And the “product” would be of better quality. Even from the economic view it make no sense! pure cruelty…

      • Rachael commented on May 9, 2015 at 2:27 pm

    • Cindy Wines commented on May 9, 2015 at 11:25 pm

      This is so so horrible. These poor suffering animals. Shame shame on these stupid humans making them suffer, die in their own excrement, starve of food and no water. There should be heavy penalties for this.

    • Maria commented on May 10, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      This horrors are repeated more or less in every breeding ‘business’. It is a disgusting way in how to make money. The poor animals suffer in filthy, unhygienic conditions, many dying horrible death by starvation and sickness, in pain. This is the reason which every person on this planet should realize it and stop buying pets from pet shops and instead adopt from shelters or rescue.

    • Charlotte Bradley commented on May 11, 2015 at 4:22 pm

      AT THE SAME TIME TO SAVE THE ANIMALS WILL BE APPRECIATED INSTEAD OF ONLY TAKING PHOTOS, VEDIO!!

      • Anne commented on May 13, 2015 at 3:02 pm

        H Keena,

        You’ll be pleased to know that a criminal complaint was filed against a total of 11 breeders and wholesalers from Germany and the Netherlands.

        The most difficult—and admirable—job that any animal rights advocate can do is to document abuse so that it can be stopped. Many of our investigators are so devastated by their experiences that they can no longer face this kind of work. Yes, when one views animal abuse firsthand, it is a natural impulse to want to interfere and rescue those animals. But then what about all the millions of animals we cannot see? If we were able to take these animals out of these situations one at a time it would indeed save those beings—but it would do nothing to stem the tide of animal abuse that causes suffering to so many others. Our best hope for them is to show government officials and people like you, who care so much, what terrible things happen and then work to try to stop it.

  • Peter Tucker commented on April 28, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Disgusting but sadly not surprising. The pet industry is a tragedy: animals bred endlessly until they die exhausted, young reared in cramped filthy conditions then transported in tiny crates to pet shops where they are displayed for profit. Most of those that survive this far spend the rest of their lives in cramped pet cages in somebody’s house – often roughly handled by young children before leading lives of sad neglect. From beginning to end It’s a life of utter hell that no-one would wish upon their worst enemy. The pet industry must be phased out and banned. Like circus animals there is no place for it in modern society.

    • Virginia Greenwood-Warner commented on May 4, 2015 at 9:12 am

      New laws appear every single day. Let’s have a new law today. No more breeding at all. Enough is enough! Not next year but right now! There are millions of creatures out there being euthanized daily . I put the blame directly at the feet of all breeders. They are one and the same – lazy bastards too lazy to find a proper job, far easier abusing innocent creatures! Again I say Enough is Enough!!!

    • SANDRA BURNS commented on May 9, 2015 at 3:39 pm

  • Hans Jochems commented on April 28, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    Although this will not directly affect or even end the indescribable and unnecessary pain and suffering these animals obviously has to sustain as quickly as possible it is no doubt a very clear message to those who are responsible for such horrific things.

    “Cruelty to animals is not something good people do. People that are cruel to animals are showing their true colors and that comes with a price; payback is a bitch. Souls, human or otherwise are placed into animals for various reasons including to see and feel what it’s like being an animal. A perspective most human souls that have been there would rather not see again.”

    We must get breeders to stop over breeding and over crowding. It is a waste of an animal when they let them die of no water or no food or being put in tiny cages with many other birds or animals. It is cruel when they don’t give them water or food and pack them to many together.

  • Marcy Howard commented on April 30, 2015 at 2:04 am

    The question is why?? WHY ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE DOING THIS TO ANIMALS. The answer is…… They don’t have one because there are heartless, cruel, disgusting non feeling Devils out there who don’t have an ounce of compassion or respect for God’s creation!! Wake up!! Seems like people are the real animals!! Are we all not a creation as well?? The day will come… Revenge is for THE LORD… This life on earth is temporary Gods LOVE IS FOREVER. Stop mistreating Animals people!!

  • Terry Churchel commented on April 30, 2015 at 9:49 am

    If you BUY living creatures ( as if they are canned goods) from any pet shop, your “purchase” keeps this horror going. You are the consumer. They furnish the product you buy. Their only motive is profit. We must think logically if we want to stop the suffering of these innocents.

  • Pirihae Fateeb commented on April 30, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    Stop this cruelty for the sake of money. Put yourself in their position and feel the agony and suffering.

We need LAWS that say NO to this business.

    I agree that adoption is always a great option but not all breeders of animals have such discusting unsanatary conditions and not all breeding animals are kept in cages like the ones displayed i do think you should advise people that when purchasing an animal do your homwork about your choice of animal so that you understand your responsibility as a pet owner to properly care for it and not become over wealmed. Always veiw the parents and the home of where the parents are kept makd sure animal are properly vet checked wormed always get receipts and contact details stay in contact with the breeder . S breeder is responsible for any animal and will always be available to help all animals and their families at all times

    What hell holes of human breeders making. Looks like Armageddon. The Concentration camps of today for animals are appalling. What a terrible shame to abuse and violate the rights of animals for their egos, psychosis, sadism, lack of proper training and humane jobs. Do they open those breeding factories with people’s tax money? The breeders who abuse and torture animals must be held liable, accountable, fined, and imprisoned and if they repent they must be reprogrammed to think and act humanely.

I was horrified to learn of this reality which these poor animals were forced to suffer!! Breeders & PET STORES are nothing but greedy MONSTERS who care nothing about animals and time both should be held accountable when horrific acts such as these are found!! At this point nobody should be allowed to be breeding animals, till not another must die due to shelter overcrowding… Till then, breeding animals should be made a crime!! Animal abuse should never be tolerated and I hope the monsters who did this to all these poor animals are found and hung!! I am just so sick & tired of greedy monsters like these who hurt helpless animals and when caught given only a stupid fine… Fines don’t work for monsters, but fear of long jail sentences do!!

    It’s totally repulsive to see the way that so called humans think that life is so meaningless, that they think they can destroy animals life’s in Europe and around the rest of the world by making what they think is quick buck, and sacrificing our fellow creatures, by over craming them in small cages, and letting them starve and die of thirst.

    The people who do this should be put in prison in the same conditions as those poor animals. They should stay there for life. Countries need to start clamping down on animal abuse and be united in their policies. This needs to stop now.

    We must change the system we all live in.
    Everything in the world is done for a one thing called “PROFIT”.
    We must change this monetary system. And all this cruelty will be a history.

    Where is our humanity?

  • Deanna Britt commented on July 25, 2015 at 10:21 pm

    I’d like to see government controls put into place that introduces a hefty Licencing control for domestic animal breeding. And ownership(To start with)
    The revenue generated would be used to financially support manpower that has the jurisdiction to seize & arrest.
    Dogs for eg. Would have a chip no placed with current microchip for id. If checks show no licence the officer has juristicion to seize and place in a centre that is funded by revenue. These controls reduce puppies etc being bred and owned by the non commited. Celebrity buy in will push this forward. TV adverts with current high profile celebs will definitely gain attention & aspiration.
    I cannot watch another video that shows cruelty the breeding or poor owner. Controls.
    PETA can drive this & a powerful organisation.
    Thank you.
