Will You Pay for Idaho’s Aerial Wolf Kills?

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Idaho officials want to kill wolves from aircraft, using taxpayers money. They want the Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services to track down and kill up to two thirds of wolves in northeast Idaho. As Defenders says “It’s an unscientific plan aimed at artificially boosting big game populations.”

Stop this heinous crime against Wolves! Take Action here!

Texas Slaughter House

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Capitalism thrives in Texas, at the cost of endangered antelope. $50,000.00 buys you an exotic endangered animal.

(CBS News)

You don’t have to go to Africa to hunt exotic animals. In fact, Texas may have more of some endangered exotics than live in the wild. That’s because breeding them is a billion dollar business in Texas, where over 100 species roam large ranches and can be hunted for sport. The hunters, and the ranchers they pay to hunt the trophy animals, both say that the money generated by hunting these animals is helping to save them. They claim only 10 percent of any species can be killed annually. But to animal rights people fighting to shut them down, they’re nothing more than slaughter houses. (Lara Logan reported on this little known practice on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.)

Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild-My Weekly Dose of Hope

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Every Saturday morning, especially during the winter months when I’m typically home on a weekend morning, I turn the TV on to watch Jack Hanna’s “Wild Kingdom” program. It has become my weekly dose of hope and encourages me to keep going when I see all the places he visits around the world where people are committed and dedicated to saving the lives of animals. I happened to catch it this morning and Jack was doing a countdown of his favorite “Zoo-tastic Adventures”.  Although the zoo where he works, the Columbus zoo, did come in second, his #1 pick was the Singapore zoo where there were baby white rhinos rubbed down with mud and the staff were walking orangutans around the park. Jack was so impressed and amazed by this beautiful zoo. I’m so impressed by and a huge fan of Jack Hanna!!!

$30,000.00 Reward

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012
Reward Offered on Hawaiian Monk Seal Killings. Wildlife officials said two of the animals were bludgeoned to death while the third was shot. The death of a fourth seal is also being investigated as suspicious. The deaths are coming as the federal government steps up its efforts to protect the seals, leading to simmering resentment among some fishermen who fear new regulations will trample upon their right to fish. The killings are also happening as the misguided notion spreads that the animals aren’t native to Hawaii and don’t belong here.


The reward was offered by the Humane Society of the United States, Conservation Council for Hawaii, Center for Biological Diversity, Marine Conservation Institute and an anonymous donor.
