Great Cats of the "World"

Via – Greatcatsofthe”World”

I am sure most of you remember the two precious Gaza Lion Cubs that circulated when they were bought from a private zoo in Rafah in Southern Gaza? >>>Here is the problem they are facing now. 😦
Since they first hit the media The Palestinian Palestinian Animal League (PAL) had been working hard to get these cubs to a more suitable environment, and it was moving toward a very positive forward progress UNTIL a third party from the USA stepped and offered the owner reported $17,000 for the young Lion Cubs, which the current owner has accepted. He would not share the details of the international organization, so it is unclear if the offer has been made by a well-meaning animal protection group or a private buyer. PAL has appealed to the mystery organization to make direct contact with their team as a matter of urgency…

Nestlé’s California Water Permit Expired 27 Years Ago

Stop Making Sense

Zoë Schlanger reports for Newsweek:

Last month, California newspaper The Desert Sun published an investigation revealing that Nestlé Water’s permit to transport water across the San Bernardino National Forest for bottling has been expired since 1988. On Friday, the California Forest Service announced it would make it “a priority” to reassess the permit, and that it might impose as-of-yet unspecified “interim conditions” on the bottling operation in light of the severe drought, The Desert Sun reports.

The fact that Nestlé has continued its massive water-bottling operation while the state struggles with crippling water shortages has become a sticking point for activists. A petition demanding Nestlé immediately stop bottling and profiting off California water has drawn 27,000 online signatures and counting, and last month activists reportedly blocked the entrances to Nestlé’s bottling plant in Sacramento.’

Agribusiness Lobby Group Fears Burnout: My Top Five Unsolicited Tips for “Agvocates”

Emilio Cogliani

2015-04-10-1428678663-3800149-Picture3.png

The latest lamentation from one of the meat industry’s main trade groups reads like something out of the Onion. In the article, factory farm enthusiasts plead that it’s “downright exhausting” to constantly defend against an onslaught of gruesome exposés by animal protection organizations, retailers increasingly demanding reforms, and ad campaigns pulling the curtains back on abusive-yet-standard practices at animal factories.

All of this, the lobby group reports, is leading to risk of burnout for its agvocates. Um, yes, “agvocates.”

I’ll give them this: it’s easy to imagine how repeatedly losing a cultural debate can be tiring.

This group, which never met a standard abuse of farm animals it wouldn’t defend, then seeks tips from readers about how to avoid such pro-ag burnout. I have some suggestions:

1. Stop defending the indefensible. Despite dozens of countries, ten US states, and more than 60 major food companies demanding the removal of animals…

Improve Your Internet Privacy In 15 Minutes

Nwo Report

INTERNET PRIVACYSource: Alexis Kleinman

The government can see your naked pictures, your private chats and pretty much anything else you do online. And that’s nothing compared to the hackers out there actively trying to steal from you.

What are you doing to protect yourself?

Odds are, you’re not doing much. Even though Americans are aware of government spying and privacy risks, 54 percent of them think it’s difficult to find ways to protect their privacy online, according to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center.

But being safer online isn’t as hard as you might think. Here are a few simple ways to keep your personal information to yourself without putting in too much effort. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to improve your Internet privacy, and the peace of mind is invaluable.

IN MEMORY OF VUČKO

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 16.53.01 Written by Dalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist, Breza, BiH

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 16.50.51More than 50 stray dogs and cats, as well as pets, have been poisoned in Donji Vakuf since the beginning of March. Bodies of dead animals can be found on the streets of Donji Vakuf almost every day. The dogs were poisoned on city streets, in the doorways of buildings, in the city parks. The Veterinary Station of Donji Vakuf has confirmed that poison was used to kill the dogs, given the symptoms. The veterinary station stated that half the dogs killed had been sterilised in a local campaign. The criminal report against an unknown offender or more offenders was filed as a result of committing the criminal offences of torturing and killing of animals as well as provoking general danger on the 12th March.

I presented material evidence as part of the criminal report. The Prosecutor’s office of Canton Central Bosnia has…

2.7 Million Creatures Killed Last Year In U.S.’s Secretive War On Animals

Emilio Cogliani

Nearly 7,400 wild animals were slaughtered every single day on average across the U.S. last year — not by hunters or poachers, but by a government agency whose stated mission is “to conserve, protect and enhance” the nation’s wildlife.

My Fate

quorndawgblog

There’s canines like me, one day I was told
are loved by people, and live in their home.
They get food and care, stay inside when cold
Take walks in the park, and fur often comb

They get to sleep in soft beds I am told
The worst they may have is a bossy cat
It all stays that way allowed to grow old
Always kept clean and not living in scat

That can’t be true and it must be a dream
‘cause dogs I know live in cages like mine
The people are mean, they make my friends scream
So others can eat them with gross rice wine

It looks like my turn, their mouths are droolin
Against my will; an entre in Yulin
