“We fail to label the unnecessary killing of animals as gun violence, and instead we euphemize and romanticize it as ‘sportsmanship.’” ~ Jay Shooster, Huffington Post
Shooster, an animal and human rights advocate, continues on the blog: “But hunting is gun violence. “A bullet ripping through flesh, puncturing arteries, taking a life is violence to matter the victim’s species”.
Killers enjoy killing repeatedly and are enabled by citizen inaction. The suffering is unimaginable. It is baffling why people do not care enough to stop it when our pets have taught us the loving, curious, loyal and healing nature of our brothers and sisters in our animal fraternity.

(AP) – The Bureau of Land Management is offering a $10,000 reward in the investigation of the killing of a federally protected wild horse at a state prison camp near Carson City in early October.
BLM spokeswoman Jenny Lesieutre said Monday they need the public’s help to find the person or persons responsible for the shooting at Northern Nevada Correctional Center’s Stewart Camp Conservation Center.
The camp is home to about 1,500 BLM horses. They are kept as part of a training program used to gentle and train the animals before adoption.
The crime is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $2,000 fine.
Lesieutre says few details are being released because it is an ongoing investigation in connection with state corrections officials.
Anyone with information should call BLM’s crime hotline at 1-800-521-6501.

A new study finds that scientists are just like the rest of us.
There is a reason the Internet loves videos of kittens and puppies andsquealing baby sloths and slow loriseseating rice balls. They are adorable to look at, and anyone who says otherwise has a heart made out of everything terrible in the world. This special affection for cute animals is a universally human trait. There’s even a theory that the desire to care for big-eyed little things, human or otherwise, is built into our DNA.
You might expect that scientists would avoid the cuteness trap and focus on conservation studies across the board, with little or no regard for how fuzzy wuzzy the animal is. But scientists are people too, and they have the same biases as the rest of us. A new study finds that…

A town in northern Italy has made it illegal for people to give money to beggars.
The decision was made after residents in the Ligurian coastal town of Bordighera, complained that they were being bothered by local beggars.
Mayor Giacomo Pallanca said it was “pointless” to punish the beggars “who can’t or will never be able to pay” fines, and so the onus will now be on people to stop giving them money.
The mayor ushered the rule in ahead of the tourism season, which usually gets underway over the Easter weekend.
“Since real organizations are often behind this phenomenon, we must eradicate it by discouraging those who offer money,” he told Il Secolo XIX.
“For anyone who is really in a state of destitution, there are social services available.”
Pallanca was unavailable for comment when contacted by The Local.
Similar initiatives have divided debate, but…
