Stop South Korean dog and cat meat, petition

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

10 October 2013

A look inside the horrific dog meat trade that claims a half a million dogs all around Asia.

A petition by Say No To Dog Meat:

Petitioning President Geun-Hye Park:

This petition will be delivered to:

President – South Korea
President Geun-Hye Park:

Take Dog & Cat Meat off the Menu!

The consumption of dog and cat meat in South Korea, where it is known as “Gaegogi” has a long history in that country, as well as that of other East Asian cultures. In recent years, it has been controversial both in South Korea and around the world, due to animal rights and sanitary concerns. Dog meat is also consumed in North Korea, but the extent or form of this activity is currently unclear.

Dogs and cats are loaded into small rusty cages sometimes 25 at a time…

Everything You Need To Know About Ebola And Your Pets

Emilio Cogliani

2012-07-16-eh_logo.jpg
By Jennifer J. Brown, Ph.D.

The news that Excalibur, the pet dog of Ebola-infected nurse Teresa Romero, was put down in Madrid, Spain, sparked an international outcry of protest — and worries about Ebola for pet owners here in the United States.

“The dog in Spain was put down due to fear and lack of education on the transmission of Ebola and infectious disease in dogs,” says Brandon Fouche, a pet expert at the Dog Rehabilitation Center in Los Angeles.

The decision to euthanize the dog was “probably from an overabundance of caution,” says David C. Pigott, M.D., professor of emergency medicine at the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB). That’s because the Ebola virus only infects a few types of animals that can pass on the disease, and this excludes animals commonly kept as pets, like cats and dogs.

“At this time, there is no evidence that dogs or…

Inuit resist government requests to tag and collar polar bears in MClintock Channel

Inuit residents of Cambridge Bay in the Central Canadian Arctic are resisting requests by the Nunavut Government to tranquilize, collar and tag polar bears to assist in their population survey.

Ebola Scare for Pets

Animal Blawg

Nicole Miraglia

Following the death of the first patient diagnosed with the Ebola virus in the United States, the news has been revolving around the outbreak in West Africa and the possible implications for the rest of the world. There are currently sixteen confirmed cases of Ebola outside of West Africa. In a majority of these cases, the patients contracted the virus while treating the outbreak in West Africa and then traveled back to their home country for treatment. The concern rapidly escalated from safeguarding oneself from the virus to safeguarding our pets. A nurse in Spain contracted the virus while treating a missionary who returned home to Madrid after treating patients in Africa.

The nurse and her husband are owners of a rescue dog, Excalibur, who quickly became the center dog protestof attention for many animal rights activists all over the globe. Spanish authorities stated that Excalibur was to…

Earth’s Magnetic Field Could Flip in Our Lifetime

Nwo Report

Earth's Magnetic Field Could Flip in Our LifetimeSource: Live Science

A pilot looking down at her plane controls and realizing magnetic north is hovering somewhere over Antarctica may sound like a scene from a science-fiction movie, but new research suggests the idea isn’t so far-fetched in the relatively near future.

A magnetic field shift is old news. Around 800,000 years ago, magnetic north hovered over Antarctica and reindeer lived in magnetic south. The poles have flipped several times throughout Earth’s history. Scientists have estimated that a flip cycle starts with the magnetic field weakening over the span of a few thousand years, then the poles flip and the field springs back up to full strength again. However, a new study shows that the last time the Earth’s poles flipped, it only took 100 years for the reversal to happen.

The Earth’s magnetic field is in a weakening stage right now. Data collected this summer by…

Elephants Know When It’s Raining 150 Miles Away

Igor Purlantov

Maybe the Weather Channel should start hiring elephants. A study in PLoS ONE suggests the creatures can detect rainstorms happening 150 miles away, possibly by hearing them even from that far off.  Migrating elephants are known to change direction out of the blue, and researchers haven’t been certain why. The Namibian research team figured it might be because of rain—as Phys.org explains, elephants are regularly looking for water in the region, which is dry outside of the January-to-March rainy season.

Wisconsin Trophy Hunters Slaughter 91 Wolves in 5 days, Go Over Limit In Two Zones

Howling For Justice

Wisconsin Wolf Slaughter

Wisconsin DNR Wolf “Harvest”

It’s bad enough 91 wolves have been slaughtered in Wisconsin since October 15 (just five days) but notice Wisconsin trophy hunters are going over  legal limits of killing wolves. In Zone 1 by 5 wolves and in Zone 2 by 14 wolves. Is the DNR ignoring what amounts to poaching of wolves by not monitoring the hunt closely and letting hunters kill wolves with impunity?

Please flood their lines and ask why hunters have been allowed to go over the legal hunting limit in Zone 2 by 14 wolves and Zone 1 by 5 wolves. Do they care?

Horrific Photograph Shows True Nature of Wisconsin “Sportsmen”

Our Wisconsin, Our Wildlife

There is a new photograph making the rounds on the internet showing a Wisconsin wolf killer posing with a dead wolf and a live one in a trap in the background. I was forwarded this today along with the caption apparently written by the wolf killer on one of the wildlife snuff sites.

The true Wisconsin "sportsmen." The true Wisconsin “sportsman.”

“Cought (it wouldn’t be a wolf hater without poor grammar) these two yesterday just in time
Before the wolf quota was filled. I believe it was
The mother and her pup but I’m not positive.
I missed two wolves the day before at this same location
So I re arranged where I place the lure, urine and stepping
Sticks and it paid off. “

This is your “sportsman” Wisconsin. Be proud. Remind you of anyone?
