Mark, something historic just happened.
The Governor of Bali has signed a ruling to end the brutal dog meat trade. With the careful stroke of his pen, he sealed a kinder, safer future for dogs on the island. As you read this email, I want you to know that you were one of the people who made this victory for dogs possible.
When an Animals Australia investigator first infiltrated dog meat gangs in Bali, the cruelty suffered by dogs was largely hidden. He captured evidence of immense suffering, and revealed that tourists were unwittingly fuelling the trade, making our responsibility to these animals even greater.
I write to you today with absolute gratitude. Because of you, the bamboo crates that once confined frightened dogs for days on end will soon be empty. Your critical role in this campaign means that the days of dogs…

I received this pleasing information a few days ago and wanted to make it public.
It is about an initiative of the Swiss animal party to bribe hobby hunting and to organize forest guardians for nature and animals in the forest.
In Canton Geneva is the private hunting since 9. Mai 1974 prohibited. It is replaced by the so-called administrative hunting in which the hunting duties of cantonally hunted hunters, the gamekeepers are concerned.
I translate the article from the Wild Animal Protection Society:
On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) submitted the national initiative “gamekeeper instead of hunters” to the canton of Zurich.
Over 7,000 signatures have been collected. Now, the Zurich voters will decide whether the wild animals in the canton of Zurich will be professionally supervised by a modern game management and thus the hobby-hunting will be abolished as…

Cows’ milk CAN be branded ‘inhumane’ after ‘landmark’ ruling for vegan campaigners
VEGANS may brand milk production “inhumane” after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled in favour of an activist group’s anti-dairy campaign.
The ruling has caused fury among dairy farmers, who have branded the advert, placed in national newspapers, “misleading”.
But vegan campaigners have said the ruling proves their claim that milk production involves cruelty to young cattle.
It is estimated more than 540,000 vegans now live in Britain, up from 150,000 ten years ago.
Press Release from Wild Horse Freedom Federation
Wild Horse Freedom Federation’s White Paper exposes BLM: Never-seen evidence proves America’s wild horses and burros are disappearing without explanation
Wednesday, July 26, 2017
Pinehurst, Texas—(PR NEWSWIRE)— Wild Horse Freedom Federation, Inc. (WHFF), today released its white paper, “Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse & Burro Program, with a Focus on Problems Related to Holding Facilities.” America’s wild horses and burros – long a national treasure and symbol of freedom – are endangered and being pushed towards extinction, despite the Trump administration’s promise to uphold the rule of law.
The comprehensive white paper cites taxpayer waste and multitudes of inconsistencies in documentation presented to both the American public and Congress. These alleged offenses continue to occur under the direction of Trump-appointed Secretary of the Department of Interior (DOI), Ryan Zinke.
WHFF’s document notes current and historical violations that include…

‘In my most Outraged Opinion!’ by R.T. Fitch
“Is it just me…?”
For years we U.S. Taxpayers, who have decried the excessive removal of protected wild horses and burros from their rightful range, have been deluged with bogus numbers, bad science and just plain bull crap by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and their deep pocketed bed-fellows. Today, we are seeing it reach new heights and becoming even more toxic for the wild horses and burros; it has to stop
It’s bad enough that we have a long time horse slaughter advocate, Ryan Zinke, appointed as Secretary of the Department of Interior, (Remember back in 2009 when Montana Rep. Zinke promoted “Red” Ed Butcher’s bill to legalize horse slaughter plants in Montana? Now he has the reins of the DoI and already is attempting to send wild…

Our beloved pets seem to have it made, enjoying an easy life of being stroked, fed and going for walks.
But it seems the more you pamper your pet, the more they start to take on some very human-like characteristics, as these hilarious Snapchats prove.
Proud pet owners have been documenting the ups and down of their pets’ lives, including that moment when you lay your head on the steering wheel in despair in a traffic jam, to having to grin and bear it when your mother dresses you up in an ‘adorable’ outfit.
From a candlelit dinner à deux, to a dog ploughing a potato field on the farm the owners of these fluffy friends shouldn’t be surprised when their dogs start driving their cars and taking over their lives.

Photographer Was Taking Cute Photos Of Rats To Brake A Negative Image Of Them
Diane Özdamar is a French illustrator, photographer and graphic designer, currently living in Montreal who has been taking pictures of pet rats for years hoping to break the negative image that is often associated with these lovely animals.
Diane Ozdamar: ‘As far as I can remember I have always loved rats and any rodent people would call ‘pest’. When I first got pet rats, I was thrilled to discover they were so clean, smart and affectionate, very far from the nasty dirty rat myth most people believe in.
Thus, I decided to rescue and foster abandoned and abused rats until I could find them a forever home. This led me to take pictures of them: finding a home to a rat is not an easy task since they suffer from a…

Did you know that you can save a post on Facebook so that you could return to it afterwards without having to search for it? Here’s how to save a post in Facebook (with thanks to Greg Robson for pointing this out and Dave Johnson for a note on the mobile app).
Why would I want to save a post on Facebook?
A good example came up just the other day. Someone had asked for people’s experiences using fuelling when running marathons, and lots of people chimed in. If you were a new marathoner and hadn’t contributed, you wouldn’t get notifications of new posts. But by saving the post, you could return to it to see what information the experienced runners had shared.
I’m sure you can think of lots of reasons why you might want to save a post, from saving photos of someone’s wedding to a link to…

Here’s a quick run-down of the bills being considered, each of which carries the potential to weaken our nation’s landmark wildlife protection law.
- H.R. 717 introduced by Representative Pete Olson (R-TX), would put financial cost considerations above species preservation. It would require decision-makers to first consider the economic costs of protecting an animal or plant being considered for listing, and it would remove deadlines for completing the listing process.
- H.R. 1274 introduced by Representative Dan Newhouse (R-WA), would consider any information submitted by a state or…

Consider allowing bait for hunting gray wolf during specific seasons
The purpose of this rulemaking is to consider changes to the allowed use of bait for hunting gray wolf. Currently gray wolf may be taken incidentally to permitted black bear baits, where hunting seasons are open for both black bear and wolf, but big game rules do not allow use of bait specific to hunting wolf. The Commission allows or prohibits use of bait for black bear on a game management unit basis in big game season proclamations. There may be management circumstances for which the Commission may want to allow use of bait for hunting wolf at times and places where bait use is not allowed or seasons are not open for black bear, such…
