Sled Dogs of Greenland

Dear Sir/Madam: On February a proposal was sent to all who are receiving this e-mail, and as yet not one person has had the courtesy to contact me with regard to the horrific treatment the Greenland Sled Dogs must endure every day of their short lives. It would appear that there is no concern about the bad name your countries are subjected to; it is also apparent that we must begin our boycott of all things that originate in Denmark and Greenland...It is most discouraging that this is the action that must be taken to bring you out of your catatonic state.

With regret, I am,
Earle Bingley,
President, Canadian Voice For Animals.
Canada


It is apparent that the Greenland and Denmark governments are not responding to the needs of the Sled Dogs...I am now asking everyone on to send more mail to the Prime Minister of Greenland at: Paornánguaq Kleist PAKL@gh.gl with a cc to: Siverth K. Heilmann at: SKHE@gh.gl and a cc to: jm@jm.dk If you would also be so kind as to send a cc to me also at: eheb@telus.net We must not let them think that we the public have lost interest. Please forward this to all with whom you are acquainted.

Kindest Regards, Earle



Dear Friends of Greenland Sled Dogs: I was informed yesterday of a second petition that has been set up for the Sled Dogs. Please go to this address: //www.opprop.no/opprop.php?id=sledehunder and please sign it also. I'm sure the Greenland and Denmark governments are watching the petitions with a careful eye.

Bless all of you for your continued support,
Kindest regards, Earle

P.S. If you are able to add banners to your mail, please save the Greenland banner and add it to your mail and if you can, insert a link to: //www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogs.html or to any other foundation that is supporting the dogs. Many thanks.



TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Dear Prime Minister Hans Enoksen: Dear Minister of Justice Siverth K. Heilmann

The following proposal is one that we at the Canadian Voice For Animals - Canada and Argentina believe will be an equitable solution for both the Greenland government and the citizens of the world who are up in arms about the horrible way the Greenland dogs are maltreated.

FIRST:
(1) All animal welfare laws on the government's charter must be immediately enforced. A press release should be issued forthwith advising the public that you are working with us to solve the Sled Dog problem
(2) Anyone found breaking said laws would be subject to a mandatory jail term, and/or a substantial fine and three months of community service in animal welfare.
(3) Two new laws must be added to the current Animal Welfare section. (1) No sled dogs are to be tethered with chains as this causes them great pain and in some cases strangulation. Any kind of tethering should be completely banned. (2) All working dogs must be given a nourishing meal at approximately the same time every day. (3) Whipping dogs in order to control them is an abomination; whips should also be banned. (4) All working dogs must have friendly interaction with their owners daily. SECOND:
(1) Enforcing the existing laws will probably be a problem do to the large expanse of your country. We suggest that you employ at least 10 to 20 new Law Enforcing personnel. This can be worked into your new budget. Fines garnered from law breaking perpetrators will in all likelihood pay their salaries.
(2) These new Law Enforcing Officers should be men or women who have a working understanding of the welfare of animals. Under no circumstance should they be owners of working sled dogs. All should undergo a complete background check by the local police department.
(3) All new Law Enforcing Officers should be put through a two to three week training course on how to deal with these unfortunate and abused animals.

THIRD:
(1) The government must begin to work with animal welfare organizations in your area. We particularly are in favour of Dryenes Venner. Their website address is: www.dyrenesvenner.gl They have endorsed our campaign and have concerns about about the welfare of the sled dogs. A grant could be given to them each month for the expenses of the animals in their care. This should be given your immediate consideration.
(2) If sled dogs are still being sent to the island that has been named: The Sled Dog Death Island, shelters must be provided for protection from the cold and a safe area where females can give birth. Straw bedding should be provided. There are many organizations that build pre-fabricated buildings and they would probably be willing to donate said shelters, if only for the good publicity.
(3) Veterinary care should be available at all times. This could also be worked into the governments fiscal budget. Not only would this be beneficial to the Sled Dogs, it would also be great publicity for your country. We firmly believe that this proposal is one that is completely doable. We are willing to work with you hand in hand to help you show the world that your country is one that will be an inspiration to other nations who have similar problems.

We do have a representative in your country whom I'm sure will be more than willing to help you in any way possible. We will send you the information on receipt of your request.

I am respectfully yours,
Earle Bingley, President, Canadian Voice For Animals

RE: Attn: Paomanguaq Kleist

Dear Paomanguaq Kleist: Attache please find my reply to your letter dated February 21, 2007.

Respectfully, Earl H. E. Bingley CVFA - Canada //www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogs.html


February 28th, 2007

Re: Greenland Sled Dogs

Paomanguaq Kleist,
Section of Information,
P.O. Box 1015, 3900 Nuuk

Dear Sir:

With regard to your letter dated February 21st, my interest in the Greenland Sled Dogs is relatively new; however, it appears that the CVFA’s campaign to stop the inhumane cruelty the dogs have had to endure for decades. Regrettably, it will, in all likelihood, continue. To quote one of our supporters: “Thank you Mr. Bingley; you have awakened the world to an unspeakable horror and I can assure you we will never give up our support for those poor unfortunate dogs. How can a country be so collectively cruel?” How Mr. Kleist; how can a country be so cruel…collectively?

You state that the Animal Protection Act was entered into force in 2003; it is now 2007 and finally the cover-up has been exposed. It is time to actually govern, and time to stop announcing fabricated falsehoods.

With regard to chained animals: It is a well-known fact that any animal which has been captive of chain-leash will eventually become aggressive…The deaths of the children could have been avoided if only the owners of the dogs had the sense to socialize the dogs that attacked the innocent children. Their deaths are the burden of your shoulders. Your government’s law chain law has absolutely no merit.

To say that sled dogs are polar animals is just more of the usual governmental psycho-babble. I personally have a Siberian husky and although she loves being out in the snow, she is always happy to come in out of the cold. No one is going to believe such a misguided statement.

You also state in your letter that measures have been taken to solve the island problem. What measures? It is quite easy to issue such a statement; however, the public from around the world wants to see those measures in a written format.

I sincerely hope that you will work closely with Susanne Markdal and Dryenes Venner, to bring this horror to an equitable solution both for the dogs and the watchful eye of the world’s citizens.

I am respectfully yours,
Earl H. E. Bingley,
President,
Canadian Voice for Animals

COUNTRIES SURROUNDING THE BALTIC SEA AND THE MAINLAND OF EUROPE ARE UP IN ARMS OVER THE HORROR THAT THE GREENLAND SLED DOGS MUST SUFFER EACH AND EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES...CANADIAN VOICE FOR ANIMALS EXPOSES THE REPREHENSIBLE CONDUCT OF GREENLANDERS, THE HORROR THAT HAS BEEN COVERED UP FOR DECADES.


GREENLAND, DENMARK: March 21st, 2007

On February 8th, 2007 the Canadian Voice for Animals – Canada and Argentina launched a campaign to save the Sled Dogs of Greenland. The dogs are an integral part of the Greenlander’s lives for a few short months of each year. It is estimated that several thousand dogs are sent to an island off the coast of Greenland when they are no longer needed. Over half of the dogs die of starvation and those that do survive, do so by eating their dead mates. See the link below for up-to-date information:

Re: Greenland Sled Dogs

Dear Mr. Premier Henoksen: Attached you will find a letter that has been sent to all of the Greenland activists, plus the media in several countries.

Earle Bingley. President, Canadian Voice for Animals.


March 23, 2007

Dear Mr. Premier Henoksen: On March 21st, I received word from Sanne Rosbog, a journalist with Ekstrabladet. dk, informing me that the Greenland government will be setting up several teams to study the Sled Dog problem with a goal to find a solution to the horror that the dogs have had to endure for so many years by their owners. There is absolutely no excuse for such behaviour; all animals are sentient beings and deserve our respect and proper care for their contribution to your country's economy. Regrettably, I have been very much tied up with the annual Canadian seal hunt, which is a terrible blight on my country's reputation, and I am only now able to contact you and Mr. Kleist. My colleagues, Professor Myrta Montiel, Ms. Jenny Berg-Rolness, and I are more than pleased that your government has seen the error of its ways, and that you are taking steps to right a terrible wrong. We would be happy to work with you on finding a solution; however, we will require a brief summary of your plans, plus weekly or monthly updates on your country's progress. I assure you Mr. Premier, that we will not stop this campaign unless we have some positive reports from you or from your associates. I look forward to hearing from you, and I remain, Respectfully yours,

Earle Bingley
President,
Canadian Voice For Animals - Canada

Re: Greenland Sled Dogs

//www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogs.html

Dear Friends of Greenland Dogs: We now have a new letter on this page: //www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogs1.html Please use it as a guide and compose your own letter. I ask this, because anyone getting the same letter over and over will not take notice of it, as it is simply deleted and forgotten. If you click on the link on the top of this e-mail you will see that the P.M. has set up a group to look into how they end the abuse that the sled dogs suffer each and every day of their lives. This is a step in the right direction and we should let them know that we will support them if they follow through with their proposed plan. There is a lot of reading on the sled dog pages, but one thing you should be aware of is that some of the sled dogs only live to be 3 to 4 years old. Some of the owners of these dogs will just kill them if they refuse to pull the heavy loads they were able to pull when they were young and hopefully well fed. I hope this fact is an incentive for everyone to take a few moments and send out their own personal letter. Please remember that these dear souls are counting on us to help them have a better life.

Kindest regards,
Earle

Norwegian TV


Today the following arrived in my mail. It is from a lady in Norway: It's quite disgusting to know that the horror is still happening to the Sled Dogs. After you read the following, each an every one of you should write letters demanding that something be done. Contact every animal welfare site you know of in the Swedish, Danish, and Greenland areas and ask them what they are doing to stop this carnage. I have written to them and all they are willing to do is post a link to the petition. I am now trying to contact the Norwegian TV station that shot the mentioned programme about the dogs to see if they will join us in this fight to help these poor unfortunate animals. To tell you the truth I'm sick to the stomach.

Read on; it's quite horriffic.


Today Norwegian tv showed a travel programme from Greenland. It was horrible, horrible. We saw a dead and frozen dog being loosened from the chain he had lived his miserable life in, and thrown in a ditch. We saw sled dogs being kicked and beaten to make them rise up and pull the sled. They were so confused by the maltreatment, and so frightened of their owners. There was an expression of utterly sadness and resignation in their faces. We saw a dog left to die in the track, with a deep wound in his leg. He turned his head away and closed his eyes when the camera people approached him, he obviously didn’t expect anything good to come from the hands of men. The team left him in the track, and when they later asked the owner what he intended to do with him, they were told that there were wolves in the area, so the dog would probably be killed and eaten the following night.

This is a daily happening in your country. Thousands of dogs have a hell-like existence just now, chained to the ground in extreme temperatures, many of them with no shelter at all. The only time they are released from the chain is when they are pulling a sled, and then they are kicked and whipped and treated as worthless creatures, and if wounded they risk to be left behind to die a slow death from starvation and freezing, if they are not torn apart by wolves.

I must admit that after seeing this programme, which confirmed everything we have read about the sled dogs situation, I feel that Greenland is among the worst countries on this planet. You should be very much concerned about this, not only because if affects the country’s and the people’s reputation, but in the first place because it involves unspeakable suffering for thousands of innocent and defenseless dogs every day. I will never forget the dogs we met in this programme. Some of them are probably dead by now, but still I feel that these are the most lucky ones, because the life these dogs have to endure is no life at all.

The letter from the home rule is a fine speech about condemning neglect of sled dogs. But talking doesn’t stop people from starving and brutally maltreating their dogs. Action is needed now. The dogs are waiting for someone to end their misery, and the international society is closely watching and waiting for improvements. Dogs have suffered on Greenland for decades. It is time to end this tragedy now.

Now I ask you to get those letter off to the addresses you will find on the Sled Dog page.

See: //www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogs.html


Regards,
Earle

Re: Greenland Sled Dogs

We have a new page on line with new photos that were taken between April 30 and May 5. They show the dogs still in horrible condition and conditions. It is apparent that the Greenland Home Rule has done nothing to improve the dog's lives, so I am asking you again to start writing letters expressing your disgust with there lack of action. Here are the e-mail addresses: ip@gh.gl Paornanguaq Kleist @ hans@gh.gl
cc to: laho@gh.gl maho@gh.gl

See photos and new page: //www.canadianvoiceforanimals.org/GreenlandSledDogsUpdate5.html

Please take a few minutes and send out your letters, and if you would, please send me a bcc.

Many thanks,
Earle



Re: Greenland Sled Dogs

Attached is my recent letter to Mrs. Kleist with a cc to Ms. Kleemann.
//tinyurl.com/32loo8

Please send letters about the whipping and the short chains. They keep sending the same thing over and over. I believe the only way we can bring them around is to start a boycott against all tourism to Greenland.

Thanks, Earle
