Global March For Lions

On March 13 and 14, people in cities around the world will once again bring awareness to the canned Lion hunting industry in South Africa. Last year was the first Global March For Lions (GMFL) and with 60 cities worldwide participating it was truly a historical moment, no gathering had previously raised awareness for Lions like the GMFL did.

Global March For Lions, Lions, African Lions, Endangered Species, South Africas Lions, Canned Hunting, Cub Petting, Walking with Lions, Ban Canned Hunting, Ban cub petting, Ban Trophy Hunting, Lion Bone Trade, Campaign Against Canned Hunting Save Lions, Voice 4 the Pride, African Lion headed for extinction, Lion Aid,

“Last year’s Global March for Lions created unprecedented public awareness world-wide about the plight of the lion. It was really extraordinary. During my almost thirty years fighting for the lion, never before I had I seen such a public outpouring of concern for the King of Animals. It was so heartening, and is making a difference. With this year’s demo we must build on this. The lion needs us like never before.” – Gareth Patterson, Author of My Lion’s Heart.

Better Believe This!

Believe this, some time ago I called out this

“WANNABE INJUN PHONEY”

in New England selling everything that he could get his hand on and teaching what he believer to be our “Sacred Ceremonies!”

Plus selling himself as an “Elder” to anyone that would mean getting money from people.

The next day I could not get back on my Facebook Account without jumping through many hoops? After returning I looked for him, he was nowhere on the internet?

That is when I was told that I was reported to Facebook after having an account for 7 years that my name was illegally?

As you can now see, I am using both my real name ‘given to me by the then Shechaim Ohjieshan and also my 2nd name given to me after the birth by this government.

Wild Horses Prevail Over Nevada Counties Legal Action

A win for Nevada's Wild Horses! A win for Nevada’s Wild Horses!

Wild Horses Prevail Against Nevada Counties

(Reno,NV) Today in Reno Federal Court the Nevada Association of Counties (NACO) and Nevada Farm Bureau case against wild horses throughout the state of Nevada was dismissed.

The suit was a programmatic challenge to the way the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages wild horses in the state of Nevada. Requests for judgement included removing all wild horses to a prescribed number known as “Appropriate Management Level,” (AML) and if there was no space in holding to destroy wild horses to accommodate removals. The case was dismissed on all counts.

The Order reads: “The Clerk is ordered to enter judgment in favor of Federal Defendants and Defendant-Intervenors American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, Terri Farley, Mark Terrell, and Laura Leigh.”

A Further Update On Anthology To Raise Money For Guide Dogs

K Morris - Poet

This post is by way of an update on the position regarding the charity anthology to raise money for The Guide Dogs For The Blind Association.

I have now received all contributions together with an excellent book cover (for which many thanks) and I am working with the editor to pull together the final version prior to publishing it online, (the anthology will be free to download with a link on the website and within the book to a “Just Giving” page in favour of GDBA.

One suggestion was to see whether GDBA could endorse the book. I have (today) spoken with the Association who confirmed, over the telephone that endorsement is not a practical option. They have, however e-mailed me as follows:

“Nice to speak to you on the phone and thanks for supporting Guide Dogs. As I mentioned as an option, you may want to use the proceeds…

A Mix Of These Simple Household Items Can Get Rid Foul-Smelling Skunk Spray

Emilio Cogliani

While there are some particularly inventive myths about the best way to combat the foul odor of skunk spray, a concoction of a few household items is enough to do the trick.

Rick Schwartz, a global ambassador for the San Diego Zoo, stopped by HuffPost Live along with a few skunks on Monday and explained the home remedy that eliminates the horrible stench.

“Hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and grease-cutting dish soap. Those three things mixed together in the moment then allow you to chemically break down … the oils and alcohol base of their spray,” he told host Caitlyn Becker.

The mixture is “much more effective than anything else that’s out there,” Schwartz added.

For those of us who’d like to avoid getting sprayed altogether, Schwartz shared the telltale signs of an impending skunk attack and when to keep your distance.

“First thing they would do is they…

Victor’s story.

Victor was saved in 2008.

On a tip that a dog is in poor condition, that only serves as a guard dog, and that nobody cares for him, volunteers of NGO “Alex” immediately went on the field and took the custody over the dog. They named him Victor.

Horror is a mild word for the poor state the dog was in. Starved and weak, he had a heavy chain around his neck, food and water was nowhere to be seen, and he had a bad skin disease Demodex.

It took a long time for Victor to recover, to learn that he is no longer limited by a meter long chain, that food and water are always available to him, and that every day there is someone who will come and pet him, talk to him with a gentle voice and nice words.

Wisconsin’s Shame: Fluffy Propaganda Piece Tries to Justify the Hounding of Wolves and Fails Miserably

Our Wisconsin, Our Wildlife

Replace the hounder on the horse with a hounder in a pickup and this is Wisconsin. Replace the hounder on the horse with a hounder in a pickup and this is Wisconsin.

Teddy Roosevelt did it. So did General George Armstrong Custer. Now over 100 years later, a few Wisconsin hunters can say they’ve hunted wolves using dogs too.

“Jay, Jake and their friends have a reputation of working hard and playing hard. That also includes taking their hunting and the care of their dogs seriously. They simply wouldn’t put their dogs in a situation where there’s a strong possibility they could be killed or injured. As Jay says, “there are risks when my kids play football too, but it’s a risk I accept.”

The above paragraphs are a prime example of what you are about to read and see in a disgusting fluff piece written for a propaganda laced kill everything website called “Petersen’s Hunting.” The website is half advertisement of the latest killing implements for the…

7 Reasons People Dump Their Dog

Emilio Cogliani

2015-03-03-Busted.jpg
(Photo by Woody Hibbard)

When I hear someone badmouthing their dog’s behavior, I wonder what they do when an appliance breaks. Usually when things breakdown, people call a repairman who identifies the problem, fixes the issue, and disappears into the night. Yeah it costs money, but life costs money, and who can live without a refrigerator or washer these days?

So why, when it comes to dogs, do people give up hope? Dogs aren’t mechanical, but all dog problems have similar roots. Dogs act up when they feel frustrated, scared or bored. A good behaviorist/trainer–a doggy repair person–can help you identify what’s causing the mischief and figure out how to fix it. Blaming the dog, dumping it on the street or in a shelter, and starting all over again with a new dog (who’ll likely do the same exact thing) won’t get you anywhere.

The number of dogs who are…

Citizen Rangers Combat Snow Leopard Poaching in Kyrgyzstan | Care2 Causes

Life or Lunch?

KyrgyzstanWebCat2Snow leopard poachers in central Asia will soon have a new enemy: better trained park rangers and eagle-eyed members of the general public. It’s all thanks to an aggressive new program headed up by the Snow Leopard Trust and the government of Kyrgyzstan.

Worldwide, only about 3,500 to 7,000 snow leopards remain in the wild today. For some time now, those seeking to stop poachers from preying on the iconic big cat in Kyrgyzstan faced serious problems. Park rangers there lack funds and resources to do their jobs effectively.

Worse, the poachers they’re fighting are often influential businessmen, politicians and other outside interlopers who are difficult to deal with. A project called the Citizen Ranger Wildlife Protection Program (CRWPP) aims to level the playing field.

The keys to the program are incentives: money and recognition. When park rangers, local citizens or other community members apprehend poachers and report and file…

Pets in Heaven

Animals Have Souls..and DO Go To Heaven

An old man was holding his cat with one arm, and walking his dog with the other arm, and they were all walking down a hot, dusty road lined with a beautiful white fence on both sides. As they walked along, the old man and his cat and dog all became very thirsty and tired.

Soon, they came to a gate in the fence where, on the other side, they saw a nice grassy, wooded area surrounding a cool clear pool of fresh water. “We’d all feel better after a little rest in a place like that” thought the old man. But there was a sign over the gate that read “No Cats or Dogs” so they walked on. Further on, they came upon a man in flowing white robes standing just inside a strong iron gate across a path that led to a beautiful, sunny meadow with a cool…

During the six-week Australia-New Zealand Antarctic Ecosystem Voyage to the Southern Ocean, which returned Wednesday, the Antarctic marine scientists listened for the low moans of the endangered whales, and then tracked them to their feeding grounds.

Big money, big hunt clubs are on the move to pressure congress to delist wolves nationwide and they don’t want that subject to judicial review. And this will allow states to manage wolves with reckless trophy hunts that significantly put wolves at risk.

Let’s make it very clear to Washington D.C. We want to keep the dirty politics out of the Endangered Species Act. Our rare and endangered wildlife are not a bargaining chip for big money! #KeepWolvesListed join the #TWEETSTORM @ the White House and Sally Jewell.
