Truck Stop Tiger’s Potential Failing Health Requires Immediate Government Intervention

Contact: media@aldf.org

BATON ROUGE, La. – The Animal Legal Defense Fund has submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture requesting an inspection of Tony, based on recent information raising concerns regarding the tiger’s health. Tony, a 16-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger, is held in a cage at Grosse Tete’s Tiger Truck Stop where he lives amidst diesel fumes and the roar of the adjacent highway. The USDA licenses the Truck Stop under the federal Animal Welfare Act.

For years, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has worked to have Tony moved to a reputable sanctuary. While the legal battle continues, recent observations by members of the public and a private investigator raise concerns about Tony’s health, prompting the Animal Legal Defense Fund to call on the USDA to inspect the Tiger Truck Stop facility. The group’s…

List Of 400 Companies That Refuse To Use GMOs In Their Products

Nwo Report

Amanda Froelich at trueactivist.com

From Amy’s Kitchen to Earth Balance, here is a list of 400 companies that refuse to include genetically modified foods in their products.

Like vaccinations and opinions on President Trump, the topic of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is incredibly controversial. This is because research is mixed on the subject, with certain institutions declaring tampered-with foods to be 100% safe, while others have concluded the exact opposite.

So far, it’s known that genetically modified (GM) foods may contribute to organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. This is why the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients.

According to data compiled by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), which is spearheaded by consumer advocate Jeffrey Smith, genes which are inserted into foods, such as soy and corn, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria…

Wisconsin’s citizens want to resolve the “decades-old” conflict between bear hounders and wolves through the legislative process 

Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin

Many animals are harmed (through suffering and killing) to serve human interests and values without due consideration of other animals’ interests and intrinsic value.  ~Compassionate Conservation 

Wisconsin can no longer afford to go back, back to the old way of thinking;  the killing of wildlife in order to conserve them. For example; Wisconsin spent decades on wolf recovery, recovery of an imperiled species that was hunted to near extinction; then in a shocking twist, the state of Wisconsin legislature mandated a trophy hunt of wolves fresh off the Endangered Species List; 

If the wolf is not listed on the federal endangered list and is not listed on the state endangered list, the department shall allow the hunting and trapping of wolves and shall regulate such hunting and trapping as provided in this section and shall implement a wolf management plan. In regulating wolf hunting and trapping, the department may limit…

SCHOOL TEACHES CHILDREN HOW TO TORMENT ANIMALS

Cecilia Catholic School, a PK-8 private elementary school in Broussard, Louisiana

Teacher throws chicken for children to chase.

On February 24, 2017, St. Cecilia Catholic School, a PK-8 private elementary school in Broussard, Louisiana, conducted a “chicken run” ritual for Mardi Gras. In the video clip, 8th-graders and a male teacher throw chickens into the air to be chased, grabbed, and tackled, as in a football game, mistreating them strictly for fun, and possibly injuring them in the process. St. Cecilia Catholic School is teaching students that it’s good sport to be a bully as long as the victim is defenseless.

What Can I Do?

Please contact St. Cecilia Catholic School and protest the “chicken run” ritual. You are also encouraged to post a comment on the school’s and the TV station’s Facebook pages. Urge St. Cecilia Catholic School to change this abusive…

Please sign and share the following petition:

South Africa: Protect Rhinos from Poaching – Don’t Legalize the Trade of Rhino Horn!

“In 2016, more than 1,000 rhinos were poached in South Africa.Rhinos are no longer safe even at zoos – rhino horn is in such high demand that poachers recently broke into France’s Thoiry Zoo, shot and killed a white rhinoceros, and sawed off his horn with a chainsaw. Zoos throughout Europe and reserves in Africa are now cutting off the horns of living rhinos to protect them from the criminal gangs determined to kill rhinos and acquire their horn.

Despite the immense threats rhinos face as a species, South Africa is considering a proposal to legalize the trade of rhino horn within the nation’s borders and allow some exports for “personal purposes.”

Please sign this petition urging South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs and the South African Parliament…
