    Whilst on eBay I came across this: Health and Welfare of Captive Reptiles 9780412550805, Book, BRAND NEW FREE P&H 0412550806 | eBay Look at the price of it. You would have thought that it was an actual academic text for that price, but from the editor I very much doubt that it is. I knew he...

    Hi all. The Daily Star would like to run an article about how those people who keep bearded dragons use them for fighting as an entertainment blood sport, like cock-fighting, dog fighting etc. It's been confirmed to them, by a rescue/conservation organisation in the North West of England, that...

    It looks like the APA might be looking to cause trouble again, I've just seen this on their facebook page: http://www.cisionwire.com/animal-protection-agency/r/kidderminster-is-fast-becoming-a-haven-for-illegal-wildlife-dealers-,c9287328 Are these idiots ever going to wind their necks in? :devil:

    Just to let everyone know that we are going to be giving a large percentage of the money raised from the show to the FBH fund to help the fight. We ourselves as a show came under the animal rights fire last year with protests outside the event and if anyone reads the local papers you will see we...

  11. I.H.S
    Welcome to my official first post as FBH Liason for RFUK. Firstly, I would like to apologise for my lack of forum "mechanics" knowledge and terminology - I'm a self confessed technophobe! I will find my feet, I'm sure. This section is very much work in progress. Over the next few days and...

    This is an existing petition by the self help group. While it isn't anything to do with the FBH it would certainly help our cause if the Government did set up an oOmbudsman to control the activities of charities. Remember the Animal Protection Agency is a charity. The petition can be found on...

    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post or not but thought people might find it an interesting read after all the grief they have caused in the past and more recently with the Doncaster show. Its a little satisfying to hear that some complaints are being upheld against their lies...

    Hey guys, I know that a lot of us girlies are fans of bubbly cosmetics and smellies, and a lot of people are big fans of Lush Cosmetics. But obviously we don't want to be funding the APA through our purchases! So on request of a friend last night I did a brief internet search to find some Lush...
