Well, by now, you surely have heard the good news about Sunder, the elephant. I haven’t posted for ages and last update about Sunder on this blog was back on June 3rd. Since June, he’s been safe, living in a lush sanctuary under the care of compassionate people. http://www.peta.org/blog/sunders-first-week-care/
Whenever the Wisconsin DNR starts to get negative feedback or when people start questioning their motives it is a sure bet that the “outdoor” writers for the state newspapers will undoubtedly jump to their defense and get the spin machine rolling. No one is more of a master of this propaganda and spin work than Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “Outdoors” writer, Paul Smith.

As Green Monsters, we mean making much deeper connections – connections between humans and our cultures, other animals, and the environment. Connections that can help us see the entire picture behind an individual issue and make us better equipped to act on a solution.
How will making connections solve our problems, you ask? Today, through the perspectives of some environmental, animal, and even human protection activists, the reputation of the human species has become very negative. Our species, especially in American culture, has been recognized for being gluttonous consumerists, violent abusers of our own and other species, and professional environmental…
