Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Sydney. At least 55 dead greyhounds have been found dumped in Australia, with police on Thursday investigating the grisly find which comes on the heels of a live baiting scandal rocking the dog racing industry.

The carcasses were discovered in various states of decomposition by a member of the public near Bundaberg, 360 kilometers north of Brisbane in Queensland state, on Tuesday.

“Police and the RSPCA are investigating the discovery of greyhound carcasses in bushland near Bundaberg,” police said, adding that the probe was being conducted as part of their Joint Greyhound Racing Inquiry Taskforce.

“The RSPCA attended the scene where at least 55 greyhound carcasses have been found in various states of decomposition. Investigations are ongoing.”

The taskforce was established to investigate live baiting using possums, rabbits and piglets to train some of the country’s most successful dogs.

It was prompted by a television expose in February that showed the animals being fixed to mechanical lures before being chased and torn apart during training sessions.

A lure is traditionally an artificial hare or rabbit.

Bundaberg Greyhound Club president Stephen Bland took to Facebook to express shock at the discovery of the bodies.

“We are appalled by the news and are doing all we can to find whomever is responsible for this disgraceful act,” he said.

The state’s Police Minister Jo-Ann Miller also used social media to note her outrage.

“Absolutely sickened that @QPSmedia & @RSPCAQld have found the remains of 55 greyhounds. Animal cruelty in Qld won’t be tolerated,” she tweeted.

Australia has one of the largest greyhound racing industries in the world. Live baiting has been banned and criminalised for decades.
