You’re the Key to Preventing Dog Deaths in Hot Cars
Posted by credd on May 24, 2017
Rising temperatures call for greater caution:

Never leave your dog in a hot car. Temperatures in a car can rise to 100 degrees—in just minutes—on a 78-degree day.

 

• Dogs live in fur coats 24/7. They can only pant and sweat through their paws in order to release heat—but that’s not enough to keep them cool in a hot car.
• Cracking the window or parking in the shade will not protect them from heatstroke.
• Dogs can sustain brain damage and can even die within 15 minutes of being trapped in a hot car.
• Heatstroke leads to an agonizing death. Some dogs struggle to escape the vehicle, bloodying their paws, salivating heavily, and often losing control of their bladders.

Remember: It’s an emergency if an animal is confined to a vehicle in hot weather. If you see one, please follow these lifesaving steps:

• Take down the car’s color, model, make, and license-plate number.
• Have the owner paged in nearby stores, and call local humane authorities or the police.
• If the police are unresponsive or take too long to arrive and the dog’s life appears to be in imminent danger, find a witness (or several) who will vouch for your assessment. Take steps to remove the suffering animal, and then wait for the authorities to arrive.

Don’t wait until an animal is in danger. Prevention is key. 🔑🔑🔑

You can help by printing out the sign above and hanging it on your, your friend’s, or your parent’s rearview mirror when the car is parked. Let it serve as a reminder to your loved ones and those walking by never to leave a dog in a hot car.

Meet Yupik, a Polar Bear Suffering at Roadside Zoo in MEXICO | Save Animals

For over 25 years, Yupik the polar bear has been languishing in Mexico’s sweltering heat at Morelia Zoo in Michoacán. Can you imagine … a polar bear living in Mexico?

This insanely deprived animal spends her days in a barren enclosure with nothing to do. Desperate to get out, she’s chewed on the cage bars so much that she sustained dental trauma. And for years, Morelia Zoo ignored her condition, which led to a serious dental infection.

A veterinarian and bear expert assessed Yupik’s health at the request of Zoocheck and found that she was thin, had poor muscle tone, and suffered from arthritis—conditions that are all likely caused by her restricted environment, poor diet, lack of exercise, and terrible life.

According to the veterinarian, Yupik’s health conditions cannot be addressed in her current environment and a “move to a more natural enclosure in a colder climate would improve her body condition score, allow for natural feeding and foraging behaviors, build her muscle mass, support her joints and reduce her behavioral frustration.”

She was all set to go to a facility better able to meet her needs, but just two weeks before her scheduled move, Morelia Zoo and the governor of Michoacán backed out of an agreement that had been years in the making—dooming Yupik to more of the same suffering and misery that she’s endured for the last quarter of a century.

As Yupik’s legal owner, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has the power—and the responsibility—to step in and ensure that she’s moved to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, where she can get the veterinary care, enrichment, and happy ending that she deserves.

Tell the FWS not to abandon Yupik and to see to it that she’s moved to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, where she can get the care that she desperately needs.

There have been reports of animal neglect at aquariums owned by Vince Covino, the owner of SeaQuest Aquariums. And although he shouldn’t even be allowed near animals if you ask us, a mall in California is letting his company open an aquarium there. 😠

Not only will the animals be confined to tanks that can never compare to their vast ocean homes, some are also set to be subjected to stressful physical encounters with humans.

At another aquarium that he owned with his brother Ammon—which is now closed—more than 200 animals reportedly died over the course of three months, many allegedly from starvation, infections, and other seemingly preventable causes.

Vince was recently fined $5,000 for failing to disclose information to investors, and Ammon has been thrown in prison more than once for violating his probation stemming from his felony wildlife conviction.

Last spring, former SeaQuest employees came forward with reports of animal neglect at the Las Vegas aquarium. One said that he saw “hundreds of animals” die, 😢 and the Metropolitan Police Department issued citations to the aquarium following complaints.

Despite having learned about Vince’s apparent disregard for the law and animal-welfare concerns at his aquariums, Palladio at Broadstone in Folsom, California, still plans to allow him to set up shop there with an aquarium that will feature public interactions that can expose sensitive animals to harassment or harm.
Ask TRI Commercial Property Management, the company that manages the mall, not to allow aquariums at its properties moving forward.

Petition: Teacher Drowns Helpless Raccoons in Front of Students

Teacher Drowns Helpless Raccoons in Front of Students

by: Care2 Team
target: Forest High School officials and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
49,673 SUPPORTERS – 50,000 GOAL

It’s a horrifying act by any standards — and it was all caught on video. An agriculture teacher at a Florida high school took students out of class and showed them how to forcibly drown two helpless raccoons.

The teacher, Dewie Brenton, was reportedly upset that raccoons had been harming chickens the class had been raising. The shocking video shows Brenton dunking a scared raccoon trapped inside a metal cage in a garbage bin filled with water.

This was an exercise in cruelty — plain and simple. Please sign the petition to hold this teacher accountable and have him investigated for his horrific actions.

The video was released to the media after one student showed his mother the upsetting video — saying that Brenton also had the class kill an opossum “for sport.”

The student’s mother told reporters that as the raccoons struggled to survive, Brenton and students “held them down with metal rods. And when the raccoon would try to pop its head up, they held water hoses in its face to drown it.”

According to Florida Fish and Game, raccoons and oppossums are considered “nuisance” animals and can be legally trapped during daylight hours. But they must be released or humanely euthanized. This teacher choose to torture and kill these animals in front of impressionable teenagers — even making students participate in the heartbreaking act.

Sign and share to ask Forest High School officials to fire Mr. Brenton for his cruelty and make sure that nothing like this ever happens again at the school.

Hormesis Advocates Dodge Scientific Rigor With Special Pleadings; Ties To Tobacco Industry-Koch Brothers Exposed By CHP Emeritus – US EPA Comment Deadline May 30th

Comment to EPA here: https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259

Robert Applebaum is a Certified Health Physicist, CHP, Emeritus. Below is Applebaum’s response to an attempt to increase radiation exposure limits, through the US NRC. Currently, the same players, Calabrese et al., appear to be trying to get the US EPA to increase radiation exposure limits. These limits are for the general population, through legal discharges into the environment. They are not for nuclear workers. Calabrese’s group (SARI) delivered a “special pleading” letter to Pruitt in March of 2017 and, in the interim, it was apparently spun and repackaged. In March 2017, Mark Miller, who retired from Sandia National Nuclear Lab, and who has solar panels on his own house, signed the SARI letter-petition to Pruitt. Carol Marcus and Mohan Doss also signed onto the March petition and have commented on the current EPA proposal. All three are mentioned below, along with Calabrese.

Inside the Strange World of Dried Hummingbird Love Charm Trafficking

There’s a witch in San Diego who cast spells to “trap a man” and “dominate him” so he’ll always come back. She has a shop on San Ysidro Boulevard, one mile from the busiest Mexican border crossing into the United States, near pawn shop, liquor store, and a furniture Market, in the Smokenjoy hoolan Lounge, where aDJ music thumps on Friday nights.

But you don’t need to go to a shop for magic – you can join the tens of thousands of watching her on YouTube. Like the wicked Martha Stewart creating potions instead of potpourri, she provides step-by-step instructions for her spells.

“This is the honey jar” she tells viewers while introducing the ingredients on her workbench: photographs of two would – be lovers, a piece of paper with their names written on it three times, a small glass jar and a dead hummingbird. She rolls the tiny animal inside the photographs and wraps the cigar shaped bundle with hot pink yarn nearly the same shade as her long, fake fingernails.

Showing only her arms and lower body on camera, she shields her identity as she swaddles the packages in a sarcophagus of tacky flypaper, Dipset in cinnamon spice, squeeze it into the jar, and spitz it with perfumes and oils – pheromones – “so he’ll stay sexually attracted.” Restless balm “so he’ll be like, oh my God, I need to call her.”  Sleep oil “so he’ll be like a zombie.” Attraction oil “so he’ll be like, ‘Goddamn, you’re so beautiful, you so fine.” Dominating oil “so you’ll dominate his thoughts.”
