Urgent! Help Needed In Alberta, Canada, To Identify Poacher Who Illegally Shot Cougar Before Leaving Its Body In The Snow – World Animal News


By WAN –
March 5, 2018
Wildlife officials in Alberta, Canada, are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the poacher or poachers who illegally killed a cougar and abandoned its carcass west of Cochrane.
The Alberta Fish and Wildlife Enforcement issued the appeal for help, along with a heartbreaking photo of the dead animal on its Facebook page over the weekend.
“In Alberta, it is unlawful to abandon the skin of a mountain lion that has been hunted,” noted the post which in turn brought attention to a bigger problem, the fact that hunting cougars in Alberta is still legal under specific guidelines. “Furthermore, the cougar season was closed in the relevant cougar management area at the time of the offense.”
Alberta reportedly has regulated its cougar population since 1969 allowing for an annual quota of up to 155 animals to be hunted each year. Terrible!
According to the post, which, as of this morning has been shared more than 6,000 times, a pair of green and brown work gloves were also found on the scene where a campfire was left burning.

The person or persons found responsible for this crime could face up to a $50,000.00 fine and or one year in jail.
People with information that may lead to the arrest of those responsible, can confidentially contact the 24-hour Report A Poacher line at 1-800-642-3800 or online via its new Report A Poacher website.
“Phoning is still the fastest way to reach an officer,” the department noted, “the new website can be used to report issues that are less urgent.

Urgent!!! Help Needed To Find Dozens Of Animals Stolen From Florida Wildlife Sanctuary Over The Weekend – World Animal News


Lauren Lewis –
March 6, 2018

Photos from Cindy Robert
A false Craigslist ad reportedly resulted in the theft of dozens of animals from a wildlife sanctuary in Southwest Miami-Dade, Florida, over the weekend.
According to WSVN, seven lemurs, five marmosets, four monkeys, seven birds and 13 tortoises were stolen from the We Care Wildlife Sanctuary sometime between 10:00 PM Saturday evening and 10:00 AM Sunday morning.

People with any information about this theft should immediately call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS or 305-471-8477.
It is especially urgent because when WAN contacted the Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers hotline this morning, while we were told that they could not confirm whether any tips have been received yet, there was an indication that none had been made.
Our call to the South District Police Station in Cutler Bay to try to secure more information was also deterred when an officer who was unaware of the case told us that, regardless, they would not be able to share any details with us unless we had a case number and went into the station to make the request.
As per WSVN, the fabricated Craigslist ad stated, “Free exotic animals. I’m no longer staying in business I can’t take care of these animals. I have lemurs, marmosets, tortoise, African grays, macaws, horses etc. First come first serve. We’re a sanctuary going out of business. If I’m not there just go around back and take what you want.”
“Some of these animals need medication. “It’s sad because, unfortunately, some of them might die,” volunteer Cindy Robert told WSVN while pleading for the animals return. “Please, just bring them back because they need to be safe and cared for properly.”
As per authorities, the owner of the animal sanctuary recently moved and no surveillance cameras had been installed.
Again, if you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS or 305-471-8477. Callers can remain anonymous and may become eligible for a $1,000.00 reward. What’s most important though is that the stolen animals are returned quickly and safely. Please help by calling the tip line if you have any information.

Urgent: Bobcats’ Lives Are on the Line in Ohio!

Exposing the Big Game

Although bobcats are native to Ohio, hunting and habitat destruction in the late 1800s and early 1900s nearly caused these majestic animals to disappear from the state. In 1974, their numbers were still so low that the species was added to Ohio’s first endangered species list. Bobcats are a keystone species, meaning that their absence significantly affects the stability of the ecosystem in which they live. Despite this, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is considering a rule change that would allow bobcats to be trapped and hunted. These animals desperately need your help!

The DNR is accepting public comments on this proposed rule change until Monday, March 5. Please visit the comment submission page, scroll down to reach the form, and follow these instructions:

·         Next to “Do you have a comment on a specific rule?” click “Yes.”

Germany: Take Action To Stop ‘Shark City’ – The Biggest In Europe – Sample Letter To Copy And Send.


Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)



I was informed by an animal protection organization that a shark aquarium is planned in Sinsheim. Sinsheim has 35,000 inhabitants and is located in the south of Germany.

An investor wants to build the biggest shark aquarium in Europe: “Shark City”.

Dives in the basins are planned, but also a so-called touch pool for touching the animals.


My first thought was: in which century do these cave-men live? But with thoughts we can not save animals, actions maybe more helpful!

I wrote and sent this letter to the mayor.

If someone wants to protest, can also send the same letter. The more the better.





Please copy the letter (preferably the German version) and send to the Mayor as soon as possible.  Please ensure you state your nationality so that he is aware of the worldwide attention on this issue.

Thank you – SAV

Olean, NY

Last week, someone started another petition for Kato & Kleo without our consent or authorization. Not only that, we specifically asked him NOT TO. We believe he did this in order to acquire email addresses for marketing purposes, based on messages we received from other animal rights groups. Please be sure to share THIS petition only, as we do not know for sure what else he is up to. We have had reports of him requesting donations and this we absolutely did NOT authorize. We requested that he remove his petition so that there would be no confusion. He closed it, but occasionally opens it back up, so please be careful. Thank you for your support and for your continued efforts to help #FreeKatoAndKleo

Animals Are Dying At Sea And No One Can See Their Pain



Animals Are Dying At Sea And No One Can See Their Pain
By Sarah V SchweigFeb. 04, 2016

It’s being called one of the “worst live shipping disasters” in Australia’s history — and no one can even get close enough to see exactly what’s happened.

The Statesman, a ship carrying 200 cows through the Bass Strait, encountered rough seas and severe weather on Saturday night. It’s been reported that most, if not all, of the animals were being kept without shelter on the deck of the ship.

Fifty-six animals, more than a quarter of the cows, died of injuries in just 24 hours. Some were in such bad shape, they had to be euthanized upon reaching port in Victoria.

This latest massive failure, far from the first, shows just how far the live export industry will go to make a buck. Thousands of animals are routinely shipped long distances in the live export business and longterm suffering and painful deaths along the way are just part of the routine. In January, 13,000 animals were stranded for days at sea.

“That so many animals perished in rough seas in under 24 hours, also indicates the appalling suffering and terror the surviving animals must have endured,” wrote Animals Australia, an organization that is calling for a stop to the live shipping madness, on Facebook. “These animals are among thousands of sheep, dairy and beef cattle sent on ships each year across the notoriously dangerous Bass Strait. They are subjected to weather extremes, rough seas and spray during the crossing — only to be slaughtered when they reach the mainland.”
