Declawing, or the “D” word, is sometimes seen as a normal surgery that’s done so cats won’t scratch the furniture, but what is declawing and why is it such a nasty word?

TNR & No Kill: The 1-2 Punch That Will End Shelter Killing

SiameseCatTwins4Ever

Trap-Neuter (or Spay, UNLESS the female is pregnant) -Return (TNR)

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is practiced by all civilized and responsible communities, because TNR works. It has been proven in the field by the EXPERTS, (as opposed to the disproven, ignorant diatribes spewed by the cat haters who do not have a clue about TNR, much less understanding how well it works and that it is based on good ole’ fashioned common sense, and hard science.) These same cat haters, who hypocritically call for the deaths of living souls (Cats) who are equally as precious and deserving of life as the rest of us, arent interested in the facts, because they have an agenda, and no matter how fictional it is and no matter how disproven it is, they cling to their mythical agenda in blissful ignorance because they wish to see cats dead, rather than alive. These same hypocrites fail to…

Jill Phipps (15 January 1964 — 1 February 1995) was a Britishanimal rightsactivist who was crushed to death in Baginton, Warwickshire, England by a lorry transporting live veal calves heading for continental Europe via Coventry Airport.

See Jill’s film here – we start with part 4, the final part – which involves the actions at Coventry airport – fighting live exports – and the death of Jill on 1st February 1995.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7dvQpOd3vc&feature=related

It has taken some 20 years since her death, but there are currently NO live animal exports from the UK to Europe.  They may return, but when they do, campaigners on the English SE coastal ports will be ready to take action.

Do Dolphins Grieve ?

The ocean update

Anthony Pierce/Barcroft Media /Landov Anthony Pierce/Barcroft Media /Landov

January 27th, 2015 (Mary Bates). A new study adds Atlantic spotted dolphins to the list of animals that show nurturant behavior toward dead offspring.

Filipe Alves of the University of Porto in Portugal and colleagues observed two instances off Madeira Island. In the first event, recorded by a tourist boat operator, four adult dolphins were supporting a dead calf at the water’s surface with their heads and backs. After about 30 minutes, the entire group of dolphins moved on, leaving the dead calf behind. In the second event, observed by a research vessel, one adult, presumably the mother, was supporting a dead calf at the surface.

Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin

IMG_3162

At this time of year Wisconsin’s north woods is over run with hunting activity. Wisconsin Department of Natural resources (WDNR) news release has it that wolf on dog attacks has increased, the following news article:

Wisconsin wolf on dog attacks increase, wildlife experts say…
“Wildlife experts say wolves have killed or seriously injured six dogs in Wisconsin this month.
That’s double the highest number for January in recent years. Two dogs have been killed in Oconto County.
Department of Natural Resources wildlife supervisor Jeff Pritzl says the spike in incidents doesn’t necessarily reflect any changes wolf population or behavior. Pritzl tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1Cuws11) that more people are out hunting coyotes, bobcats, and rabbits with their dogs because of the milder winter.
Pritzl says the peak time for wolf-related incidents is late summer and early fall. He says most of the activity is usually in the northwest part of the state.

NYPD Rescues Beaten Puppy Buried Alive In Snow; Owner Raul Cruz Arrested

Emilio Cogliani

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man is facing animal cruelty charges after police say neighbors witnessed him beat his puppy and bury the dog alive in a snowbank.

The Daily News reports Saturday (http://nydn.us/1vkn2EY ) Raul Cruz was also charged with weapons possession and torturing and not feeding an animal. He was released Friday night on $5,000 bail. Information on his attorney wasn’t immediately available. Sgt. Derek Mercado tells the paper officers responding to neighbors’ calls had to dig the whimpering puppy named Hennessy out of a two-foot snow bank.

The 43-year-old Cruz was then arrested.

Court papers show a veterinarian treated the dog for skull, leg, rib and back fractures as well as lost teeth.

The paper says the dog is currently being cared for by the ASPCA.

Budweiser Takes Low Road – Demonizes Wolves To Sell Suds

Howling For Justice

February 1, 2015

We all know about the Budweiser ad, a little lost puppy being threatened by a wolf. I won’t show the ad because it’s BS and I don’t want to give it any publicity but Budweiser should be ashamed. Are they that desperate to sell beer?

 Get a grip Budweiser, very poorly played. Beer drinkers around the country should boycott Bud if the ad is not pulled. It’s a low blow to wolves, one of the most persecuted animals on the planet.

Please click the link below and sign the petition to tell Budweiser what you think of their blatant demonizing of wolves.

A Real Dilemma

Funny and Interesting Stuff People Have Sent Me

WHOREHOUSE SUES LOCAL CHURCH OVER LIGHTNING STRIKE!
What an interesting turn of events in Mt. Vernon , Texas …Diamond D’s brothel began construction on an expansion of their building to increase their ever-growing business. In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the business from expanding — with morning, afternoon, and evening prayer sessions at their church.
Work on Diamond D’s progressed right up until the week before the grand re-opening when lightning struck the whorehouse and burned it to the ground!
After the cat-house was burned to the ground by the lightning strike, the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about “the power of prayer.” But late last week ‘Big Jugs’ Jill Diamond, the owner/madam, sued the church, the preacher and the entire congregation on the grounds that the church … “was ultimately responsible for the demise of her building and her business…

The Fur, Feathers, and Scales of Justice: Scoring the Highs and Lows of Attorneys General on Animal Protection – Wayne Pacelle: A Humane Nation | HSUS President & CEO

Life or Lunch?

6a00e009947fe2883301b8d0cbeb47970c-320wiLast week, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring burnished his pro-animal record when he established an Animal Law unit in an attorney general’s office. The unit will serve as a resource for local law enforcement and state agencies on animal fighting and animal cruelty prosecutions, providing the expertise and firepower to bring those responsible for animal cruelty, suffering, and abuse to justice. For the unit’s first project, it’s partnering with The HSUS to reach out to Virginia pet stores as part of an effort to crack down on puppy mills.

In New York, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has launched an Animal Protection Initiative to shut down criminal animal fighting rings, protect consumers from unscrupulous pet sellers, and prevent other forms of cruelty to animals. Just last month, Schneiderman secured felony convictions in the case of two men who ran the largest known cockfighting ring in New York history, and he…
