WDFW Killing Five Month Old Puppies Along With Their Family…SHAME!!!

More death, more killing..all for agribusiness.

Nice going WDFW, you’re giving Washington state quite the reputation. It makes me sick to think the packs four babies are either dead or will be soon.  Don’t weep Wolf Warriors, get active!!  How about a protest to let WDFW know how you feel about their cowardly act!!!

The wolves were slaughtered just seven miles from the Canadian border, I’m sure running for their lives. If only they were a little closer to the border. Their territory extends into Canada, I hope what’s remaining of the pack keeps on going and hides from these killers.

Why are cows trumping wolves on public land? Retire grazing leases!! Stop catering to cattle barons, they don’t own this country and they don’t own our public lands. I don’t care how long they’ve been grazing their cows on…

The Georgia Aquarium has applied for a permit to import 18 wild-caught beluga whales from Russia as part of an initiative to breed them for exhibition at aquariums and marine parks across the country. Beluga whales are sensitive marine mammals with complex physical and psychological needs. Shipping them like cargo across the world only to confine them to an aquarium for the rest of their lives is cruel and unjustifiable. Because importing these animals is such a controversial move, there is a public comment period for the next 60 days, and we need your voice to make sure that the whales stay put!

People are captivated by beluga whales, but when confined to aquariums, these fascinating marine mammals continue to live in misery long after visitors return home with their pictures and memories. Most captive whales die prematurely and live to only half the age of their wild brothers…

Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue located in Hagersville, Ontario was founded by Brenda McArthur-Thompson in 2007.  Since that time, Whispering Hearts, on the list of Canadian Horse Defence Coalition approved horse rescues, has saved over 150 horses.

Brenda has her hands full with the care and rehabilitation of 50 abused, neglected and unwanted horses keeping them safe from the slaughter pipeline.  When you think of all the stress and worry that horse rescues endure, you must say to yourself, that’s more than enough for most.  But for Brenda, her worry goes above and beyond the call of duty, as she reaches out to help a community help their animals.

While Brenda’s rescue is located in Haldimand County, Ontario, neighbouring Norfolk County, sadly, does not have sufficient animal welfare coverage to be able to deal effectively with the community’s needs.  Brenda has been called upon time and time again to help horses…

UrgentOn the 23rd of September the Australian Lugarno Lions Club, with the approval of Hurstville City Council, have organised a rodeo as the main attraction of their annual Spring Festival. The Australian Bushmen’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association (ABCRA) invited themselves to the party and will demonstrate how to be cruel to animals during a bull-riding and saddle bronco riding event.

To force a bronco or bull to come out of the chute bucking a flank strap is pulled tightly around their groin. When pulled tightly, the flank cuts into the sensitive area, irritating them and causing them to buck in an attempt to relieve the discomfort. Once the flank strap is removed, the animal stops bucking. To further increase bucking, riders are allowed to wear metallic spurs with loosened rowels (star shaped wheels). Just prior to being released the rider…

UPDATE | 09/24/12

Thank you for your email. I appreciate your input and concern for wildlife. It appears you may not have all the pertinent information and there is more detail that may be of interest to you.

The beaver that were dwelling in the man-made storm sewer at Paul Lindsay Pond have been successfully live-trapped and relocated to Morris Island in the Morris Island Conservation Area. The relocation was authorised by the Ministry of Natural Resources and conducted by wildlife professionals and overseen by the same City Bylaw & Regulatory Services staffer who has tended the Royal Swans for most of her career.

I understand that Morris Island has plenty of food and space for the beaver and their activities will not impact private property (a picture of Morris Island is attached). As well, the water levels at Morris Island are controlled by Les Chats dam, so the beaver…

With a leg up from an old wooden chair, Monica Barber swings into the saddle and off to the races, or at least the paces, as she and black mare Nicki move through the walk, trot, canter and low jumps at the Clarington facility where she takes weekly lessons.

Barber is 59.  She’s battled through hip replacement surgery, breast cance and arthritis – all since taking up riding 10 years ago.

The Wild Horses of Alberta Society is a non-profit group dedicated to saving our province’s free-roaming horses.

Wild horses have been a part of Alberta’s west country since the 1800s. These horses have evolved over the years, with natural selective breeding creating a gene pool distinct to Alberta.
