KUDDLY KOALAS

September is Save the Koala Month

The annual awareness and fundraising campaign of the Australian Koala Foundation

(AKF)

The AKF is the principal not for profit, non-government organization which has, for 25 years, been dedicated to saving the wild koala and its habitat.

This year the theme is “give me a home among the gumtrees!”

The reason is self explanatory – Koalas need their trees! The AKF estimates that no more than 80,000 and probably closer to 43,000 koalas remain in the wild.

KITTY IS MY BLACK CAT

We had a rough start at the beginning.

Almost thought we’d give her away.

She was really driving us insane and was tearing the house up.

Nowadays, it’s a different story.

She’s still her own “person” but she’s here to stay.

Because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters.

Black Cat Appreciation Day was launched to show people that a black cat could be the perfect cat for them, and help raise awareness about black cats in general.

IOTD …. Special Edition …. “World Elephant Day …. “!!

~~August 12, 2016~~ 

WORLD ELEPHANT DAY

On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.

The escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are just some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. Working towards better protection for wild elephants, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, conserving elephant habitats, better treatment for captive elephants and, when appropriate, reintroducing captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world.

World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments where elephants can thrive under care and protection. On World Elephant Day, August 12, express your concern, share your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of captive and wild elephants alike.

CAPTIVE FOR TOO LONG

Lolita needs your help.

Boycott ALL Palace Enterainment parks til she is retired!

#ShutDownPalace

I remember, approximately 25 years ago, I traveled to Miami Florida.

I was visiting friends.

One of the attractions that we wento to was the Miamiseaquarium.

The main event: Lolita!

At the time I was uneducated about the plight of this beautiful, sentient being.

As I’ve learned in recent years, it’s time to free this amazing animal.

To this day, it’s been 44 years that Lolita has been help captive in was is equivalent to a bath tub for an animal her size.

So many years have passed and she is still there.

Two years ago, I posted information about her.

The location where she lives is beyond inadequate for her.

Please, let’s join this movement.

It’s time!

Lolita has suffered in the same barren tank at the Miami Seaquarium for 44 years. She lives a solitary life, performing in depressing daily shows for tourists.

Her tank is the smallest for an Orca in North America, and despite being in violation of the Animal Welfare Act, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has yet to acknowledge these glaring discrepancies.

The purpose of the Shut Down Palace campaign is to urge the retirement of Lolita the orca from the Miami Seaquarium, owned by Palace Entertainment.

By boycotting, protesting and raising awareness we hope one day Lolita will see her home waters again ….

KARMA …. “to ALL animal abusers” …. !!

STATISTICS AND FACTS

Animal Cruelty Facts and Statistics

The shocking number of cruelty cases reported daily on television, on the Internet and in newspapers is only the tip of the iceberg. Most cases are never reported, and most animal suffering goes unrecognized and unabated.

Unlike violent crimes against people, information on reported cases of animal abuse have not been compiled by state and federal agencies, making it difficult to calculate the prevalence or trends in these crimes.

Who abuses animals
Cruelty and neglect cross socio-economic boundaries, and media reports suggest that animal abuse is common in both rural and urban areas.

Most common victims
The animals whose abuse is most often reported are dogs, cats, horses and livestock. Based on numbers from pet-abuse.com, of 1,880 cruelty cases reported in the media in 2007

Organized cruelty
Dogfighting, cockfighting and other forms of organized animal cruelty go hand in hand with other crimes.

Domestic violence, child abuse and animal cruelty
Data on domestic violence and child abuse cases reveal that a staggering number of animals are victimized by abusive parents or partners each year.

“Bandit”: Freedom after Lifetime in Chains”!!

FREEDOM FOR BANDIT

Bull Does Freedom Dance After Lifetime In Chains

By Christian Cotroneo

January 6, 2016

Do chained bulls dream of rolling freely in green pastures?

How else do you explain how an animal, who has spent his whole life in chains, could take so ferociously to freedom?

In a video posted to YouTube by Austrian animal sanctuary Gut Aiderbichl, a bull named Bandit appears to have been waiting his whole life for precisely this moment.

Before being liberated, Bandit can be seen in the video at his old home, tethered by his neck against a brick wall with just a steel pole between him and his equally forlorn neighbor.

~Published on Aug 22, 2014~

Bandit was one of many million that live worldwide in narrow stables in tethered housing, all life long. Do animals get used to this? Not really if you watch our unique video. Bandit shows his gratitude to Christian from our sanctuary Gut Aiderbichl and performs a dance of freedom. On our sanctuaries live more than 500 rescued cows, bulls and calves.

Something to think about …. “SHAME: Florida’s Black Bear Hunt”!!


FLShame

~~October 27, 2015~~ 

FLORIDA’S BLACK BEAR HUNT

Florida Called Off Its Big Black-Bear Hunt After It Became a Black-Bear Massacre

By Nathan Pemberton

Follow @nathanpemberton

Florida decided that something had to be done to reduce the number of black bears interacting with humans, who have increasingly been encroaching on their traditional settlement areas, with sometimes unfortunate results.

The state took the measured response of initiating a week long statewide bear hunt for the trash-hungry omnivores.

It doled out more hunting permits (3,779) than the last known count of the bear population (3,300).

The first weekend of bear bloodbath was such a success that officials had to call off the hunt after only 48 hours.

The bear body count by that point had already reached 295.

The wildlife commission had set a cap of 320 bears, nearly 10 percent of the state’s bear population.

Biologists with Florida’s wildlife commission say the high numbers point to a robust and fully recovered bear population.

Just three years ago, the black bear was on the state’s endangered-species list. The population was bouncing back from a low of around 300 in 1970, down from 11,000 at its mid-century peak.

Hunting was suspended in 1994.

~Florida Ends Black Bear Hunt After Two Days With 295 Animals Dead~

~Published on Oct 26, 2015~

Wildlife authorities say hunt had neared official objective of 320 bears. More than 3,200 hunters had bought licenses to participate. After just two days, Florida ended its controversial black bear hunt because a higher than expected number of bears had been killed. Wildlife authorities said late on Sunday that 295 bears were taken overall, nearing the official limit.

Thoughts for today, #221 …. “Speak up … Be Their Voice”!!


Speak

~~August 25, 2015~~ 

ONLY THE WEAK MAN

Only the weak man kills;
Gets his thrills from blood spills –
Decimates, massacres.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man hunts;
Substitutes the moans and the grunts,
Of the pleasured, for the dying.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man destroys;
Unfathomable excuses employs,
Trap, bait, confinement exploits.
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man derides;
Mocks in contempt and divides –
Into “higher” and “lower.”
Only the weak man.

Only the weak man enslaves;
Dominates, subjugates … craves,
Devouring the flesh of another.
Only the weak man.
