Thank you Tony Eliseuson, Animal Legal Defense Fund Senior Staff Attorney for posting this update about Tony on Linked In.
The Animal Legal Defense Fund filed a summary judgment motion asking the Court to enter a final judgment that will end this six-year legal battle and enforce the Louisiana Big Cat Ban as to Tony, who has unfortunately spent the last 16-years of his life trapped at the Tiger Truck Stop.
This Motion is a significant development in the case as it attacks the two legal tactics used by Tiger Truck Stop to avoid a prior judgment from 2013 that was entered in the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s favor. If this Motion is granted, it should allow the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to take possession of Tony and move him to a naturalistic home at a reputable sanctuary that he has deserved for 16 years.

Elderly zoo animals should be given a peaceful retirement at wildlife sanctuaries. After spending most of their lives on display, these wild animals deserve to be given a blissful life away from the public. Please sign this petition to urge zoos to retire their animals.
Flying foxes are about to be slaughtered to protect the profits of local farmers. Sign this petition to demand that flying foxes are protected from this government cull that threatens the very existence of this unique animal.
An eight-month-old puppy named Polo was found with debilitating burns all over his body after being thrown into a fire. Demand that Polo’s attackers are found and punished.
First, excerpts from Healthline.com for “What Causes Dermatitis Herpetiformis?”:
- From the sound of the name, many people think this rash is caused by some form of the herpes virus. This isn’t the case, as it has nothing to do with herpes. Dermatitis herpetiformis occurs in people with celiac disease. Celiac disease (also called celiac sprue, gluten intolerance, or gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by intolerance to gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It’s also sometimes found in oats that have been processed in plants that handle other grains.
- According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 15 to 25 percent of people with celiac disease have DH. Celiac disease can also cause intense abdominal pain, constipation, nausea, and vomiting. People with DH typically don’t have any of the intestinal symptoms. However, even if they don’t experience any intestinal symptoms, 80 percent or more…

Government hazers descended upon our soon-to-be national mammal this Monday, marking the season’s first forced removal operation west of Yellowstone National Park. Agents with the Montana Department of Livestock (DOL) and Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) disturbed and chased forty-four buffalo with about twelve newborns from lands west of the South Fork of the Madison, in the Denny Creek area, a place buffalo love. Unfortunately, this is one of the last strongholds for the few seasonal…

This 23 August 2016 video is called China destroys seized ivory in illegal trade crackdown.
From the African Wildlife Foundation:
Stop ivory sales: Protect elephants
Africa’s elephants are in crisis, with the number lost to poaching exceeding 30,000 a year. Sadly, these majestic animals are killed to feed the demand for unnecessary ivory trinkets.
This is driving a beloved species toward extinction and undermining the African economy as one of its primary tourism drivers disappears.
The African Wildlife Foundation, our followers and the worldwide conservation community, have already persuaded numerous governments to ban their domestic ivory trade.
Now it’s Taiwan’s turn. A total ban would support the resolution reached by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) COP 17 to prohibit all ivory trade. It would also prevent wildlife traffickers from using Taiwan’s legal ivory trade as cover for transporting…

From the American Chemical Society.
WASHINGTON — Have you ever seen a drop of water navigate a maze? It’s possible thanks to the same phenomenon that lets you know if a griddle is hot enough for pancake batter. Water droplets that dance and skitter across a hot surface instead of boil away on the spot are experiencing the Leidenfrost effect.
Understanding Leidenfrost — first described more than 200 years ago — helped engineers make more efficient steam engines. Today, scientists are using high-speed cameras to better characterize how superhot water behaves on metal surfaces. The investigation might lead to improvements in power generation. Watch the superhot dancing droplets here:
You did it. Your voice has been heard!
TK Maxx has responded. They have accepted the Blood Feather award and turned it into something positive:
They have agreed to stand up for the geese and ducks in their supply chain.
As you may remember, we believed that TK Maxx was not doing enough to prevent cruelty from entering their bedding supply chain. They were ignoring our 40Lives campaign and our efforts to get in touch.
Luckily, over 13,000 FOUR PAWS supporterscontacted TK Maxx directly, asking them to budge. And it worked!
We finally heard from TK Maxx the night before our planned Blood Feather Award ceremony.
Regardless, we went ahead and delivered the award at their headquarters. It was THE red carpet event of the year.

A 70-year-old Swedish woman is the latest victim of the left’s maniacal commitment to “tolerance.” The elderly woman faces up to four years in jail for complaining on Facebook about migrants fouling her neighborhood. Migrant men have been caught defecating in the streets. Cars have been torched as migrants attempted to incite a riot.
In a post from 2015, the unnamed woman commented on the effect migrants were having in her city. Liberals drudged up the post two years later and are now attempting to hurry the woman into court. The entire case rests on a screenshot of an old Facebook post.
Migrant violence, on the other hand, usually goes unprosecuted. The moral relativism espoused by most liberals allows them to excuse almost any ill on cultural grounds. A Muslim migrant sexually assaulted a young woman? It must be because he hasn’t learned how to treat women. A…

PITTSBURG, Pa. — We have been following the story of the Pittsburgh area restaurant serving steak tartare made with horse meat. Because it was making national headlines we figured you have been following it too.
We write about it now that the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has stepped in. It is interesting how FSIS handled it pointing out their concern — it is illegal to import horse meat into the U.S.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has warned a Pittsburgh restaurant to not serve horse meat again.
KDKA-TV first reported that Cure Restaurant hosted a special dinner with Canadian chefs on May 8 that included horse tartare*.
Cure released this statement from chef/co-owner Justin Severino:
“On Monday night we hosted a collaborative dinner with chefs from Canada, a Québécois feast. One of the courses included horse tartare, which is traditional Québécois. It was sourced…
