Save elephants, stop ivory trade in Taiwan

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 23 August 2016 video is called China destroys seized ivory in illegal trade crackdown.

From the African Wildlife Foundation:

Stop ivory sales: Protect elephants

Africa’s elephants are in crisis, with the number lost to poaching exceeding 30,000 a year. Sadly, these majestic animals are killed to feed the demand for unnecessary ivory trinkets.

This is driving a beloved species toward extinction and undermining the African economy as one of its primary tourism drivers disappears.

The African Wildlife Foundation, our followers and the worldwide conservation community, have already persuaded numerous governments to ban their domestic ivory trade.

Now it’s Taiwan’s turn. A total ban would support the resolution reached by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) COP 17 to prohibit all ivory trade. It would also prevent wildlife traffickers from using Taiwan’s legal ivory trade as cover for transporting…

Cool science: Watch water droplets navigate a maze

Watts Up With That?

From the American Chemical Society.

WASHINGTON — Have you ever seen a drop of water navigate a maze? It’s possible thanks to the same phenomenon that lets you know if a griddle is hot enough for pancake batter. Water droplets that dance and skitter across a hot surface instead of boil away on the spot are experiencing the Leidenfrost effect.

Understanding Leidenfrost — first described more than 200 years ago — helped engineers make more efficient steam engines. Today, scientists are using high-speed cameras to better characterize how superhot water behaves on metal surfaces. The investigation might lead to improvements in power generation. Watch the superhot dancing droplets here:

Victory – TK Maxx Now Moves To Stop Cruelty After Major Campaign.

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

 

 

You did it. Your voice has been heard!


TK Maxx has responded. They have accepted the Blood Feather award and turned it into something positive:

They have agreed to stand up for the geese and ducks in their supply chain.

 

As you may remember, we believed that TK Maxx was not doing enough to prevent cruelty from entering their bedding supply chain. They were ignoring our 40Lives campaign and our efforts to get in touch.

Luckily, over 13,000 FOUR PAWS supporterscontacted TK Maxx directly, asking them to budge. And it worked! 

We finally heard from TK Maxx the night before our planned Blood Feather Award ceremony.

Regardless, we went ahead and delivered the award at their headquarters. It was THE red carpet event of the year.

WE DID IT! GUARDIAN M1396 IS FREE!

Speaking of wolves

OK, while this may not be exactly breaking news, it is STILL HUGE! I FINALLY received an answer about M1396 GUARDIAN albeit late:

Hi Mr. Lopes,
M1396 was removed from the wild/Luna Pack in May, 2016. At the time of his removal, M1158 was also traveling with the Luna Pack and we believe likely functioning as the alpha male. At the end of 2016, the Luna Pack consisted of 5 animals: M1158, F1487, and 3 surviving offspring (one of which was confirmed to be sired by M1158).
After a brief stay at the Ladder Ranch Wolf Management Facility, the Mexican wolf Species Survival Plan group recommended M1396 be transferred to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Texas, for breeding to help maintain the genetic health of the captive population. This transfer occurred in October, 2016. M1396 and his mate have settled in and are doing well at Fossil…

70 Years In Prison: Woman Faces Brutal Jail Time After Revealing What Migrants Did On Her Street

Nwo Report

Asia Mayfield

A 70-year-old Swedish woman is the latest victim of the left’s maniacal commitment to “tolerance.” The elderly woman faces up to four years in jail for complaining on Facebook about migrants fouling her neighborhood. Migrant men have been caught defecating in the streets. Cars have been torched as migrants attempted to incite a riot.

In a post from 2015, the unnamed woman commented on the effect migrants were having in her city. Liberals drudged up the post two years later and are now attempting to hurry the woman into court. The entire case rests on a screenshot of an old Facebook post.

Migrant violence, on the other hand, usually goes unprosecuted. The moral relativism espoused by most liberals allows them to excuse almost any ill on cultural grounds. A Muslim migrant sexually assaulted a young woman? It must be because he hasn’t learned how to treat women. A…

USDA warns Pennsylvania restaurant that serving horse meat violates federal law

Tuesday's Horse

PITTSBURG, Pa. — We have been following the story of the Pittsburgh area restaurant serving steak tartare made with horse meat. Because it was making national headlines we figured you have been following it too.

We write about it now that the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has stepped in. It is interesting how FSIS handled it pointing out their concern — it is illegal to import horse meat into the U.S.

CBS News Pittsburgh reported:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has warned a Pittsburgh restaurant to not serve horse meat again.

KDKA-TV first reported that Cure Restaurant hosted a special dinner with Canadian chefs on May 8 that included horse tartare*.

Cure released this statement from chef/co-owner Justin Severino:

“On Monday night we hosted a collaborative dinner with chefs from Canada, a Québécois feast. One of the courses included horse tartare, which is traditional Québécois. It was sourced…
