TAMPA, Fla. — Florida wildlife officials are investigating two girls after a video posted to Facebook showed them lighting a rare tortoise on fire and stomping it to death, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conversation Commission.

Videos showed the Orange Park girls dousing the threatened gopher tortoise with a flammable liquid, lighting it on fire and stomping the animal until its shell breaks.

“We have received multiple complaints about the videos posted to Facebook last evening showing the killing of a small gopher tortoise,” the FWC said in a Facebook post. “Our officers are investigating the case and are presently working with the State Attorney’s Office to determine what charges may be filed.”

Officials said gopher tortoises are a threatened species, and it is against the law to kill, harass or destroy them, their eggs or burrows.

Yellowstone Wolf Carts Off Road Cone To Play With…

Howling For Justice

Yellowstone National Park rangers stopped traffic so a few wolves could cross the road and one of them snatched a road cone to play with 😎

Wolves are wild dogs, who have playful natures, so it’s not surprising but very endearing ❤

Mungai and the Goa Constrictor

“Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books”
John Dingell

Asiatic lionPossibly one of the most persecuted animals in history, this majestic and noble creature has suffered a shocking catalogue of violence and abuse over the past two millennia or more.

It has been used as a weapon, killed for sport and entertainment, stolen for zoo exhibits, graced the floors and trophy rooms of the unconcerned, been poisoned and electrocuted by villagers protecting their cattle, drowned in open-pit wells and is now, in the face of dwindling tiger numbers, being hunted for body parts for use in Chinese Traditional medicine and other applications.

Populations were first dramatically and critically depleted, and in some areas wiped out, in Roman times.  Had you lived as a Christian in ancient Rome, you might…

Mother Duck Calls for Help for Her Ducklings and a Police Officer Saves the Day! VIDEO | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

This story will fill you with love! When a mother duckling called for help in the city, a couple of police officers came to the rescue, showing how much of an impact a small action can have for the lives of our animal friends.

Trapped underneath the ground in a sewer, several ducklings were making noises and were in need of some help. On the sidewalk, you’ll see the mother duck calls for help, and luckily, her call does not go unnoticed. The police officers could have gone about their day, dismissing the duck as just a duck making noise. But instead, you’ll see the officers open the sewer grate. “We’re going to save the baby ducks,” one of them says in the video.

And save them she does! They got to take a short trip in a cardboard box, back to the water, where they belong. Looks like the adorable…

It Is What It Is

~~July 16, 2014~~ 

What Is Spiritual Enlightenment or Spiritual Awakening?

A definition of spiritual enlightenment or spiritual awakening is hard to pin down.

This is, in part, because “spiritual enlightenment” and “spiritual awakening” have been used in so many ways to describe so many things, similar to the way in which “love” is used to describe everything from a preference for ice cream to a merging with everything. And it is also because spiritual enlightenment and spiritual awakening are such rich and complex experiences that they are innately hard to define.

Some definitions are very specific and narrow. One such definition for spiritual enlightenment is the complete dissolution of one’s identity as a separate self with no trace of the egoic mind remaining. This sets the bar very high and means that very few people qualify as enlightened. 

The opposite approach is to say that everyone…
