Stop the Blood Sport of Bear Hunting

Exposing the Big Game

Photo Copyright Jim Robertson Photo Copyright Jim Robertson

Those who respect wildlife get tired of seeing smiling “hunters” posing with a weapon in one hand and holding up the head of a majestic bear with the other. In death, the bear shows more dignity than its cowardly killer.

Lynn Rogers, Ph.D., the leading black bear biologist in North America, concluded that black bears are extremely timid and pose little risk to anyone. Attacks by a black bear are so rare as to be almost nonexistent. A person is about 180 times more likely to be killed by a bee than a black bear and 160,000 times more likely to die in a traffic accident.

The New Jersey Fish and Wildlife agency propagates game species for its hunter constituents. It runs a blood “sport” killing business under the fraudulent cover of “conservation.”

Killing a black bear is a cowardly act. It’s killing for nothing more…

Summer sea ice melt and polar bear maternity dens

polarbearscience

The yearly sea ice minimum extent is almost upon us, which has recently been the seasonal signal for excitable biologistsand their activist groupies to resume their breathless rants about what sea ice loss could mean for polar bears.

Polar bear den_CreditUSFWS_labeled

Never mind that the summer minimum extent reached in September, no matter how low it goes, is pretty much irrelevant to polar bear health and survival. As I’ve discussed before, what’s really important is the presence of not-too-thick ice during the spring, so they can catch lots of young seals and put on lots of fat.

But to a lesser degree, the extent at mid-to-late summer is important because this is when pregnant females that prefer to make their maternity denson shore are looking for good places to spend the winter.

So the topic for today is this: how much does the extent of ice at…

6 Myths the Beef Industry Wants Us to Believe | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

cattle-farm-1200x750The Beef Industry would have us believe that not eating beef is flat out un-American. Throughout the years, the marketing departments of corporate beef companies have spewed out every type of myth imaginable to keep us from reconsidering a life without red meat.  Here are six of the most prevalent beef industrymyths debunked.

1. Children Need to Eat Beef to Grow Properly

Numerous prestigious medical institutions including the American Dietetic Association (ADA) have concluded a meat free diet for growing children is “healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.”

Moreover, the ADA states that a well planned vegan diet is “appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence and for athletes.”

The University of Michigan Medical School says that a diet without meat is very safe and healthy for your…

In this post, I will be discussing orders of protection for companion animals and the relationship between animal abuse and interpersonal violence. Not every state provides protective orders for pets; because of this, I have written up a form letter that you can send to your lawmakers which details why the law in your state for orders of protection should be expanded to include pets. The letter, which you are free to modify and share, is posted at the end of the article. Not sure if your state already protects pets? Please refer here for an up-to-date list of states.
