Collapsed carriage horse in NY sparks calls for investigation

Tuesday's Horse

CARRIAGE HORSES (New York City) — Confronting images of a horse said to be collapsing in Central Park last week sparked cries for an investigation into the horse’s welfare Monday.

However the city advised the horse, named Max, had only tripped, and he was due back at work.

New York animal rights group NYCLASS said bystanders reported that a white carriage horse began breathing heavily before collapsing on the ground just before 10 a.m. Tuesday Feb. 21 near Tavern on the Green in the park.

The group provided images of the incident it said was taken by eyewitnesses. It believed the horse had just started its shift pulling carriages for the day.

Photos showed the horse first kneeling on the ground, and then fully splayed out on its side on the road.

Carriage driver Chris Emanus put the horse, named Max, back to work on Monday, insisting he’d been cleared…

A couple posted photos on Facebook and said veterans waited for hours in pain inside the Durham VA Medical Center.

Stephen McMenamin, a former U.S. Marine, was there for treatment, and his wife took the pictures.

“My wife found it upsetting, so she took a couple pictures,” he said.

He said a veteran on the ground was using his bag of medication for a pillow after being denied an available reclining chair.

“The nurse started yelling at him, telling him he can’t do that. He’s like, ‘I can’t get up and I won’t get up. I will be here until you can see me. Can I please have a blanket?’”…

Prayer of the Wolf ~ By Jack Spirko

Prayer of the Wolf

Great spirit watch over me
Through the darkness of the night
As I go to quell my hunger
Guide me with the moon’s light

I know that I am hated
By Man deep within his mind
But this world is one of the predator
That is how it was designed

I ask only to be left in peace
So that I may live from day to day
And for room to raise my family
So they may run and feed and play

And when I answer that final lonesome howl
As my ancestors who have gone on before
I hope that I will meet them
At heavens very door

I pray that will be the place
Where man can live at our side
Where the valleys are deep, mountains are high
and the spaces are forever wide

That then he may finally see
That I am his brother and not his foe
for only through losing hatred
May our spirits ever grow

In this ritual, a dog is suspended over the Veleka River on a rope and then repeatedly stopped in one direction to wind the rope, the dog is let loose so that it turns rapidly in the opposite direction while The rope unfolds.The frightened dogs reach such high speeds that when they…

An Arizona man who has published thousands of animal welfare documents on his website since the government purged the once-public information is pledging to keep digging up data until federal officials reverse course.

Russ Kick, a 47-year-old writer and anthologist, said he immediately sprang into action last week when the U.S. Department of Agriculture suddenly pulled from its website a slew of papers regarding animal welfare at thousands of facilities across the country. Since then, he has made public again more than 10,000 documents, and thousands more are set to hit the web soon.

“We have the right to know what’s going on,” Kick told TIME on Thursday. “The more we know about what’s going on, the better.”
