By Kirsten Massebeau

Join the Tweetstorm now: Free the Mojave Dolphins From the Mirage Hotel! Your Tweet is their only hope!Join the Tweetstorm now: Free the Mojave Dolphins From the Mirage Hotel! Your Tweet is their only hope!

On July 12, 2014 temperatures reached 102 degrees fahrenheit in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unbeknownst to many 10 dolphins are trapped in the Mojave desert far from the ocean. Despite the many dolphin deaths the Mirage hotel and casino’s, “Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat“, also know as the, “Dolphin Death Pool” continues to be restocked. The dolphins imprisoned in the Mirage’s “Dolphin Death Pool”, continue to prove the desert is no place for highly intelligent and social, ocean animals by failing to thrive, and dying after their long work days entertaining guests for profit at the MGM Resort in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

10 Films That Will Change the Way You See Animals

Vegan Lynx

Watch the videos here.

I have to admit that I haven’t seen them myself. I’m wary of watching anything that might make me feel sad. Also, I doubt if anything could make me see animals any differently. Nothing could make me love them more than I already do. But I thought my visitors might like to see them.

Wisconsin Wildlife Federation and National Wildlife Federation: Two Peas in a Pod of Hypocrisy

Our Wisconsin, Our Wildlife

National Wildlife Federation- We are looking at you an your hypocrisy. National Wildlife Federation- We are looking at you and your hypocrisy.

One of the things most concerning to wildlife advocates is the idea that recreational hunting, hounding, and trapping are views as “heritage” and “tradition” in many parts of the country. Nowhere is this justification for wholesale killing more prevalent than in Wisconsin. Wildlife killers and exploiters have long duped the public into believing that they are the real “conservationists” and that if they didn’t kill wildlife they would die of “starvation and disease.” They also like to boast about how much money they put into “conservation” and how they fund the state fish and wildlife agencies that cater to their every whim. The myth that killing is conservation has become so deep seeded in our society that it is very difficult to change those false perceptions.

Sheep to J.Crew: Hear Us, Dont Shear Us | PETAs Blog | PETA

Life or Lunch?

2014-04-03_2_Dead-ram-closeup-with-frozen-liquid-near-mouth_IMG_0058-1032x500Sheep are up in hooves over the way they’re being abused by shearers. And today, one of them asked leading wool retailer J.Crew to stop profiting from their suffering and drop cruel wool.

The costumed sheep and a throng of PETA supporters gathered outside J.Crew’s flagship store on New York City’s Fifth Avenue and screened footage from our video exposé of the wool industry in the U.S. and Australia, which supplies 90 percent of the world’s merino wool.

The exposé shows that workers violently punched scared sheep in the face, stomped and stood on their heads and necks, and beat and jabbed them in the face with electric clippers and a hammer. Some of the animals died from the abuse. One worker twisted a sheep’s neck and then kicked the dying animal head-first down a chute, later admitting, “I get angry.”

J.Crew previously banned fur following a PETA campaign…

STOP ANIMAL ABUSE

TO THOSE WHO FOLLOW THIS BLOG, MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO WRITE THIS SOONER, BUT I HAVE NEVER USED THIS PROGRAM BEFORE (my granddaughter would normally write if needed, but she was on vacation) SO I HAVE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO USE WORDPRESS. 

I AM WRITING ON BEHALF OF MY DAUGHTER JULIE, TO INFORM HER FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS, THAT SHE IS NOT WELL, WHICH IS WHY JULIE HAS NOT WRITTEN ANYTHING IN A WHILE, AND SHE WILL BE AWAY FOR SOME TIME YET!.

UNFORTUNATELY, JULIE SUFFERED SOME COMPLICATIONS DUE TO A RECENT SURGICAL PROCEDURE, WHICH MEANS SHE IS UNABLE TO GET TO HER PC, HER MOVEMENTS ARE RESTRICTED; SHE CAN’T EVEN USE HER WHEELCHAIR!

JULIE WAS BACK IN HOSPITAL ON THE 2ND OF JULY (for more spinal procedures) BUT THE PROCEDURE DIDN’T WORK!!  MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH HEALTH WISE, FOR SO LONG; I DIDN’T THINK THINGS COULD GET ANY WORSE…HOW WRONG COULD I BE!…
