Conservation officers in Haida Gwaii are searching for the people responsible for killing and decapitating a black bear, then dumping it on a beach.

The headless carcass was discovered this week at the high tide line, just east of Sandspit, according to Sgt. Kyle Ackles of the Conservation Officer Service.

“The head was removed, but the rest of the bear was intact,” Ackles said. “My understanding is that it’d been there for a couple days.”

Photos of the decapitated bear have been posted on Facebook, prompting outrage from many commenters.

2017 – Tippah County Still Abusing Domestic Rabbits for Entertainment

Aug 19, 2017 — Please sign the Petition by “In Defense of Animals” at the link below:

*** Organizers and sponsors of the fair, the sheriff, and government officials from the Governor of Mississippi, the District Attorney, and the Animal Board of Health have so-far failed to enforce MSSS 97-41-5, the statute that prohibits the cruel carrying of animals, and MSSS 97-41-1 which outlaws the tormenting of animals. Although the Animal Board of Health had sent materials on the proper handling of rabbits and rabbit care to the children who caught rabbits and chose to take them home last year, it has no enforcement powers, nor the will to intercede and protect animals***.

A disgraceful reminder of the “Traditional” animal abuse in Tippah County, going on for over 27 years according to supporters of this fair.

The cruelty at this event is barbaric and inhumane, please continue to share this petition to help educate the public that this disrespect and abuse of animal life is not acceptable and that animal cruelty laws Lack in Punishment in Mississippi and need reform.

Thank you for your continued support,

For The Rabbits,

#WhaleWednesday – #RIPKasatka

Voice For The Blue

#WhaleWednesday this week will be dedicated to Kasatka

Six weeks after being rumored to be near death, orca matriarch Kasatka has died.

SeaWorld San Diego announced today that Kasatka was euthanized on the evening of Tuesday August 15, after a long bout with bacterial respiratory infection, or lung disease.


Kasatka’s passing comes just three weeks after the death of 3 month old orca calf Kyara at SeaWorld Antonio (Kasatka’s granddaughter and San Diego born Takara’s daughter).

Kasatka was captured off the coast of Iceland on October 26, 1978, at the age of less than 2 years (she was estimated to be born around 1976). She was captured alongside her pod mate Katina, also approximately 2 years old, and then sold to SeaWorld that same month. For 4 years, Kasatka and Katina lived together, but the two were separated in 1984 when Katina was shipped to SeaWorld Orlando, where she remains…
