41 elk died Wednesday morning after falling through ice in East Oregon😭



A  herd of 41 elk died Wednesday morning after falling through ice in east Oregon, according to wildlife officials.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said in a Wednesday Facebook post that the elk perished after falling through the ice on the Powder River.

“After several years of drought, Eastern Oregon is experiencing a real winter this year,” wildlife officials said in the post. “The extra moisture and snowpack will be good for wildlife and habitat in the long run, but conditions may be tough on critters this winter.”

Wildlife officials received a call from a person who lives near the reservoir and witnessed the incident, Brian Ratliff, district wildlife biologist at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Baker City office told the Baker City Herald.

Horse Rescues Himself From Slaughter





December 28, 2016

Frisco, TX – A senior white horse with short ears destroyed by frostbite wasn’t on the rescue list at a kill pen in Frisco when Becky’s Hope was saving 9 mini donkeys from shipping to slaughter. Becky’s Hope had raised the funds needed to rescue the 9 miniature donkeys but were not planning on saving any other animals. The white horse saw the donkeys loading up, and determined to be on that trailer.

The white horse pushed his way through gates, down alleyways, passed yelling workers trying to stop his forward progress, but nothing would stop the horse. He reached the trailer, climbed aboard, and tried to melt into the herd of donkeys. “I firmly believe that he thought if he mixed in with the mini donkeys we wouldn’t notice. He’s like I’m just one of them. Got on the trailer with them, stood there like you don’t see me, and kept his head kind of down,” Sue Champman of Becky’s Hope told reporters.
The rescue paid $450 to the feedlot rather than turning the white horse out, and promptly named him Bubbles. He is doing very well at the rescue. You can follow his progress on the Becky’s Hope Facebook page.

Shocking scenes of violence & suffering captured on a British dairy farm

Dear Mark


Today we have released shocking scenes

of animal abuse filmed earlier

this month by Animal Equality investigators

on a dairy farm in Somerset,

UK.   The investigation, which came on

the back of a tip-off

from a local resident, revealed farm

workers violently punching tiny

calves and kicking cows in the face.

Multiple other incidents of abuse by

workers were filmed in just one day,


– repeatedly kicking young calves to

make them stand up

– aggressively twisting cows’ tails and

repeatedly slamming metal gates

into them

– pinning calves to the floor and shouting

obscenities in their face

– repeatedly kicking and slapping

nursing cows

– violently throwing small calves

to the floor.





Abusive treatment was not the only

suffering we found on this West

Country farm, which runs…

Vegan Shoe Shines Light on Cruelty of Ostrich Farms | VegNews

Life or Lunch?

Los Angeles company Mink debuts cruelty-free ostrich leather flats to raise awareness of the big bird’s plight in the fashion industry.

Los Angeles-based vegan shoe company Mink released the first-ever pair of Italian-made faux ostrich shoes. Mink partnered with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to create the new hand-stamped ostrich-print ballerina shoe—available in black and “wine”—in an effort to raise awareness about the conditions ostriches face on leather farms. Celebrity stylist Rebecca Mink founded the company in 2000, which produces vegan shoes in the same Italian factory as top brands Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Jimmy Choo, and Dolce and Gabbana, amongst others. The PETAxMINK faux ostrich shoe is available for custom pre-order until January 8, 2017, and 20-percent of profits will be donated to PETA.
