Ensure Maximum Punishment for Scotland’s Animal Abusers

Is a small fine and a little jail time the proper punishment for someone who tortures, maims, or kills another living being? A lackluster response to animal cruelty sends a troubling message about how we value life. With your encouragement, Scotland can send a very different message by fulfilling its pledge against animal cruelty.

Two White Tigers And Two Bears Rescued Thursday In Texas From Owners Housing Them Illegally – World Animal News

Lauren Lewis –
January 22, 2018

A white tiger and a snow-white tiger, along with two bears were seized late last week according to In-Sync Exotics, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused and unwanted exotic felines.
On the organization’s Facebook page, it explained the situation and shared the good news that the tigers, named Assad and Zahra were relocated to their new home at the In-Sync Exotics’ sanctuary located in Wylie, TX. The bears were transported to Frank Buck Zoo in Gainesville, TX.

A joint operation between In-Sync Exotics, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the local county Sheriff’s office, who reportedly seized the animals from owners who did not have the proper permits and were housing them illegally.

“Both tigers will be in mandatory quarantine for 30 days. Their quarantine area is located in the sanctuary’s on-site veterinary clinic where staff veterinarian, a veterinary technician and keepers will provide the highest quality of medical care to diagnose and treat any issues they have currently,” noted the post, “as well as maintain their health throughout the rest of their lives.”
Formed in 2000, In-Sync Exotics maintains an extensive Community Outreach Program through which it educates the public on the unique attributes and characteristics of its residents; the realities of irresponsible and or illegal exotic wild animal ownership and captive breeding; and the need for stronger and enforceable legislation against those who abuse exotic wild animals.

“Our goal is to rescue mistreated and or displaced cats and provide them with a lifetime of excellent care is an expensive labor of love.” “It costs $168,000.00 a year to feed our animals and it can be upwards of another $150,000.00 for veterinarian care.” Plus, we have the added expenses for utilities, enrichment, equipment and supplies.

Petition · Department of Homeless Services: Permanent housing for Jim and Happy · Change.org

James Wayne and his four-year-old service dog Happy need our help to get them into permanent housing. Jim has been homeless for 11 years, most recently in Manhattan. To escape the frigid temperatures they live in the subways. Happy is a certified service dog, neutered and vetted. James has done everything that’s asked of him by the department of homeless services and he still keeps getting the run around mainly because he has a dog.

Widespread Land Loss On US Gulf Coast From BP Oil Spill

Hurricane Katrina Gulf of Mexico 2005

Wetlands and barrier islands provide protection from the strong winds and storm surges of hurricanes. It is estimated that every 2.7 miles of wetlands reduces a storm surge by one foot. As erosion continues, and wetlands turn to open water, their ability to decrease approaching storm surges decreases and the risk of catastrophic loss of life and property from hurricanes is greatly increased.” https://www2.southeastern.edu/orgs/oilspill/wetlands.html

Pumas are not Competing with Human Hunters for ‘Trophy’ Animals

The Jaguar

Mountain Lion (aka Puma) by Jitze Couperus. CC BY 2.0

A recent blog post by Dr. Mark Elbroch of Panthera’s Puma Program brings up an important issue. As Dr. Elbroch states, there is an old and pervasive belief that large predators compete with human hunters for antlered deer and elk. This is one of the many factors that has led to the persecution of animals like pumas (mountain lions, cougars, Puma concolor, etc.). However, a 2017 study by Dr. Elbroch and his colleagues calls this belief into question.

In this study, as well as in his blog post, Dr. Elbroch explains that trophy hunters prefer to target large male elk and deer. These individuals have large antlers, and are therefore more impressive than the rest. There is a financial demand for large, antlered ungulates that encourages game agencies to remove any factor that might decrease their abundance –including large predators.

“The BLM should not be doing any round-ups at all because their population estimates are not scientifically defensible…”

Here is your opportunity to officially weigh in on the use of helicopters and motorized vehicles by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to round up wild horses and burros on the Public Lands.

Comments can be made in January and February 2018 for wild horse herds specifically targeted for round-ups in Idaho and Montana.

Please know that Equine Advocates is completely opposed to wild horses and burros being rounded up at all! With that said, getting rid of the helicopters and other vehicles which cause terror, suffering and in many documented cases, the needless injuries and deaths of these animals, would be an important step in helping to eliminate some of…

Sea World Carnivale, A Dolphin’s Worst Nightmare!

Black Cove

Despite holding dolphins captive in its theme park facility for over 40 years, Sea World on the Gold Coast has recently signed up to participate in a World first study to determine the state of welfare of its cetaceans.
It beggars belief that Australia’s premiere marine theme park, along with every other captive dolphin facility across the world, has never actually conducted any robust scientific-based research into what conditions optimize good welfare of cetaceans in their entertainment facilities.

This World first multi Institutional study’s very first step is to “develop indicators of welfare,” yet Sea World claim they already know what those indicators are.
