A vid not long after we found her. She'd been mauled by a cat to begin with and almost died from the shock.

Many baby seals dying of leukemia-linked disorder along California coast — Blamed for over 1/3 of recent deaths at San Francisco Bay rescue center (CHART)

Of the 46 recently weaned northern elephant seals deaths reported by the San Francisco Bay Area’s Marine Mammal Center between April 20 and August 1 of this year, Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation was listed as a cause of death in 16 — over 1/3 of the total.

U.S. National Library of Medicine (emphasis added): Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a serious disorder in which the proteins that control blood clotting become over active… Risk factors for DIC include: Blood transfusion reaction; Cancer, especially certain types of leukemia…

Jean-Claude Van Damme fights fur industry

Actor partners with Belgian animal protection organization GAIA on new ad campaign


Action star Jean-Claude Van Damme is going after the fur industry in a shocking new ad that's as brutal as it is commendable.



Made in partnership with Belgian animal protection organization GAIA (Global Action in the Interest of Animals), the spot features Van Damme holding a skinned mink with the words "Coming This Winter To All Fur Stores: The Victims." It's featured prominently as a massive billboard in downtown Brussels and will tour an additional seven Belgian cities throughout the month of October.



"I fail to see what is attractive about walking around in an animal skin; I suspect the animals would agree with me." Van Damme, who has become the organization's newly appointed anti-fur ambassador, said in a statement.



Belgium has 20 mink farms and kills roughly more than 15,000 animals each year. Conditions are terrible, with each mink confined to a small wire cage approximately 80 by 30 by 30 centimeters for seven to eight months. According to a 2009 poll, nine out of 10 Belgians agree with a ban on the cruel industry.



"The Victims" is a cry from the heart against the fur trade, based on the suffering and unnecessary death of millions of animals," said the president of GAIA, Michel Vandenbosch.

Flying Korea's farmed dogs to safety

By Stephen Evans
BBC News, Seoul

14 September 2015

One of the most difficult things for Westerners to accept about living in South Korea, and some other Asian countries, is the custom of eating dogs. For many in the West, the very idea prompts feelings of nausea - while in some countries, including South Korea, it is a hallowed culinary tradition. But one group of Western campaigners now thinks it has a way of breaking the deadlock.

It is a clash of cultures - sometimes a raucous, angry clash of cultures. On one side, the activists - often Western - who can increasingly be seen at markets in China, Vietnam and South Korea protesting against the sale of dogs as food.

On the other side, the dog traders and farmers who challenge those who threaten their livelihoods. Many Asians accuse the West of hypocrisy. "You eat sheep, cow and chicken," they say. "So what's the difference?"

It is usually a dialogue of the deaf. This week, though, opponents have come to an amicable agreement. They have listened to each other and found a way forward. A farmer is freeing more than 100 of his dogs and, in return, the campaigners - from Humane Society International and the Change For Animals Foundation - have given him some cash and a business plan for a different kind of business.

The dogs were vaccinated a month ago and they will be flown out to new homes in California this week, starting on Tuesday.

Strange noises turn out to be cows missing their calves


NEWBURY — Strange noises coming from High Road near Sunshine Dairy Farm Monday night and into yesterday morning prompted local police to alert residents that there’s nothing spooky or scary going on.

According to Newbury police Sgt. Patty Fisher, the noises are coming from mother cows who are lamenting the separation from their calves. The separation of mother cows from their calves is a yearly occurrence and is a normal function of a working dairy farm, Fisher said.


“It happens every year at the same time,” she said.

Fisher said her department received at least four calls between midnight and 7 a.m yesterday morning regarding inhuman sounding noises, prompting her to post a quick message on its Facebook page yesterday:

“Residents in the area of Sunshine Dairy Farm may notice loud noises coming from the dairy cows at all hours of the day and night. We’ve been informed that the cows are not in distress and that the noises are a normal part of farming practices.”

Separating mother cows from their calves isn’t without controversy, with many bloggers and animal rights activists calling the practice inhumane and appalling. Mother cows are separated from calves shortly after they are born so calves don’t drink their mothers’ milk. The calves are placed in small hutches until they are old enough to roam with other young cows, according to several dairy farm websites

Most animals who are exported live for slaughter have their throats cut while fully conscious. Millions have died at sea. Some 36 investigations have revealed that in destination countries, many animals endure routine abuse and brutal slaughter in places where laws do not protect them from cruelty.

Man Rescues Dogs & Takes Them For A Ride On His ‘Dog Train’



Meet Eugene Bostick, an 80-year-old Fort Worth, Texas resident that has done something amazing for some lucky rescue dogs.

rescue dogs

So do Buddy, Daisy, Jack, Mickey, Ms. Nell, Chubby, Bonnie and Clyde, all former stray dogs who belong to 80-year-old Eugene Bostick of Fort Worth.

The ride, which Bostick built himself, has made the retired Union Pacific railroad employee and his pups viral superstars. After a video appeared on BuzzFeed this week, Bostick and his dog train have attracted thousands of views and calls from all over the country.

“We got a call from New York one morning telling us the video had gone viral,” Patricia Bostick, Eugene Bostick’s wife, said Thursday. “The phone hasn’t stopped ringing.”

All for a dog train built with 55-gallon fiberglass barrels.

Twice a week, with the help of his 87-year-old brother, Walter “Corky” Bostick, Eugene Bostick cranks up his John Deere riding mower, uncovers the cars on the train and takes his nine pups on an hourlong ride.

“Oh, they just love it,” Corky Bostick said. “Every time he takes the covers off, they start jumping and barking, ready for the ride.”

The dogs seem to have a great time, barking and looking around as if they’re taking in the scenery.

Arrow cow slaughter banned in nepal

Cow becomes national animal of Nepal

Cow, which is sacred to Hindus, has been declared the national animal of Nepal in the country's newly-unveiled secular Constitution.

http://indianexpress.com/article/wor....6MY12OE0.dpuf

Cow, which is sacred to Hindus, has been declared the national animal of Nepal in the country’s newly-unveiled secular Constitution.

Nepal on Monday adopted a new Constitution after years of political wrangling.

“As for the pro-Hindus, we have made cow our national animal. Now, the animal has constitutional protection and cow slaughter has also been banned. This provision had been removed from the first CA but we brought it back,” Krishna Prasad Sitaula, General Secretary of Nepali Congress who served as a key interlocutor in Nepal’s peace and Constitution-drafting process, told Kathmandu Post.

Some lawmakers have proposed the one-horned rhino as national animal.

Tear jerking thread both of joy and disgust.

I remember as a young lad i always wanted to be a vet.untill i realized that i would probably have to put animals to sleep

Most people look at me so weirdly because ''i talk to animals like you would humans''

Put me in a room full of people and i would befriend the fly at the window the spider on the ceeiling

There are no words or actions that could ever describe my love for nature and the animal kingdom.

Thanks for all the stories you have posted turquoisefire777

The dentist who's best friend to 200 dogs: Animal-lover gives up his job to rescue pets left to starve in the scorching sun after crisis-hit Greeks abandon them
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
Dog owners in Greece are struggling to pay their pets' food and vets' bills
Pooches being abandoned and left to starve on rubbish dumps in Crete
Theoklitos Proestakis has set up a shelter and rescued more than 200
Former dentist gave up everything to open shelter and relies on donations

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz3ns3W2t2b

As the financial crisis' grip on Greece gets ever tighter, increasing numbers of people are being forced to dump as many expenditures as possible – and for many people that means their dogs.
Before it struck, these pooches were beloved family pets. Now they are left abandoned, thrown out like rubbish and left to starve.
But one man, a former dentist, has begun picking up the pieces, and has single-handedly saved more than 200 dogs.

What a wonderful man. These poor dogs have a soul, which is totally lacking in the heartless psychopaths who have engineered the economic collapse of Greece. Those dumping their dogs would (presumably) have been loving owners once, now sunk in the depths of hopelessness - and no longer able, or willing, to face their responsibility. All the 'austerity' is just a scam, to dehumanise and cause as much misery as possible to people and animals alike. So good to hear these words, then - which prove what is possible, where there is love and commitment:

"This is my life,' he added. 'It's difficult but I love it. I work so hard here but when I see the dogs happy and enjoying themselves and learning to trust people again then it's all worth it."

Nothing Can Ever Come Between This Orphaned Baby Possum and Her Stuffed Kangaroo

Adorable photos of a four-month-old, orphaned brushtail possum joey named Bettina clutching a stuffed toy kangaroo have been shared by the Taronga Zoo in Mosman, a suburb outside of Sydney, Australia. After being found alone and dehydrated nearby, the animal is being cared for by a nurse at the zoo’s wildlife hospital, Felicity Evans, who carries “a makeshift pouch” and wakes up “in the middle of the night to bottle feed and toilet the joey,” according to a news release. Eventually, the marsupial will be slowly be reintroduced to the wild. No word on whether the stuffed friend will join Bettina.

Cop Suspended for Showing Compassion and Refusing to Kill a Baby Skunk
“It’s hard for me to shoot an animal unless it’s trying to eat me because it’s here for a purpose and really hard to shoot an animal when it’s injured"

http://www.infowars.com/cop-suspende...-a-baby-skunk/

According to an unofficial count conducted by Ozymandias Media, an independent research group, a dog is shot by law enforcement every 98 minutes.

In an investigative report, it was discovered that a single police department in Buffalo, NY, shot 92 dogs in less than three years. In Southwest Florida, the News-Press discovered 111 instances of dog shootings among multiple agencies between 2009 and 2012, representing about 37 per year. According to the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Police shot approximately 90 dogs per year between 2008 and 2013.

It is an undisputed fact that cops frequently kill dogs.

Video after gruesome video, pop up online showing how police often and without hesitation pull the trigger and kill man’s best friend. Every so often, however, a compassionate officer will show restraint and refuse to kill the beloved family pet.

In July of this year, Mount Carmel Police Department Officer David Dean was called out to a residence after a report of a child being bitten by a skunk. Upon arriving at the home, Dean located the injured baby skunk. He then showed compassion and was unable to kill the terrified and defenseless animal.

Unable to shoot the skunk, Dean gave his pistol to fire Chief Ryan Christian, who fired three shoots to kill the skunk.

Instead of understanding the officer’s reluctance to take an animal’s life and commending him for it, Dean was suspended without pay and placed on 6-months probation — for refusing to kill.

According to the Kingsport Times-News:


Dean gave a written statement in which he described the baby skunk as being injured and appearing as if it had either been hit by a vehicle or attacked by another animal.

According to his own statement Dean told Seabolt, “It’s hard for me to shoot an animal unless it’s trying to eat me because it’s here for a purpose and really hard to shoot an animal when it’s injured.”

The “Queen of Ivory” arrested in Tanzania

“The Queen of Ivory”, a Chinese national, arrested by a specialized Task Force in Tanzania. To date, she is the most important ivory trafficker ever arrested in the country.

Dar-es-Salaam, 8 October 2015 – A specialized wildlife trafficking unit under Tanzania’s National and Transnational Serious Crimes Investigation Unit (NTSCIU) arrested a number of high-level Chinese ivory traffickers led by a woman who is now thought to be the most notorious ivory trafficker brought to task so far in the war against elephant poaching. She is believed to be behind the trafficking of a huge quantity of ivory over the last several years.

The woman, now dubbed the “Queen of Ivory”, is a Chinese national named Yang Feng Glan, 66, and has been followed by the Task Force for over a year. She recently disappeared from Tanzania, moving to Uganda, but returned one week ago, when the Task Force swiftly moved and arrested her. After confessing to many of her crimes she has been taken to the high court of Dar es Salaam facing a maximum sentence of 20-30 years imprisonment.
