Idaho Wolves Slaughter Suspended until November 2014

Just yesterday good news for coyotes was posted, today there is some good news for wolves.

“Great news for Idaho’s wolves!

Faced with our latest legal challenge, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game just suspended its plan to slaughter 60 percent of wolves in the Middle Fork region of the Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness beginning this winter.

Over the past year we fought vigorously to stop Idaho’s plan to convert this premier public wilderness into an elk farm for the benefit of hunting outfitters and recreational hunters, destroying the natural balance between predator and prey.

And today—under the pressure of our litigation—the Idaho Department of Fish and Game has agreed to suspend the slaughter of wolves in the wilderness until at least November 1, 2015.”

Merle, the Little Wild Rabbit

Merle died in my arms. She had been sitting on the side walk and had not moved when I walked close by. I knew something was wrong with her, so I picked her up to check for some obvious injuries, put her in a safe place, gave her some fresh grass. She raised her head and looked at me after a while, seemingly not as terrified as at first.

But then she rolled over on her side and her heart stopped beating.

I know that she is one of almost uncountable many rabbits out there, dying either of natural course (only very few), of being hit by cars, trains, tractors, etc.; being killed through testings on animals; being killed for their fur; being killed for fun by hunters and other strange people who get a kick out death.

I know all of that. For me, Merle was someone special, someone singular and unique.

 

Here are some helpful websites on rabbits – there actually are no statistics out there on how many rabbits die because humans killed them:

Saving one animal will not change the world, but the world will change for that one animal – and for you.

Good news! It is great to see that spreading the word about some animal misery can lead to success. This time it is the end to the coyote killing contest:

“Victory! ALDF reached a settlement with the organizer of the annual JMK Coyote Hunting Contest in Harney County, Oregon. One result of the settlement is that the killing contest will not continue in future years — great news for wildlife! The event, held annually for eight seasons, required hunters to “buy in” to the contest by paying an entry fee of $100. Top teams won cash prizes totaling more than $10,000 for various kills, including ´most kills´ and ´largest kill.´”

Would There Be Chimpanzees Left Without Jane Goodall?

Without Dr. Jane Goodall there might not be any chimpanzees left in our world, at least not in the thick forests of Gombe.

Jane Goodall saw the responsibility the project for saving the chimpanzees had to also help humans sharing the space around the animals. If the humans would not understand how important the survival of these animals was, there would be no way to successfully come to the aide of the animals.

“When Dr. Goodall first stepped foot in Gombe, the forest was lush and stretched on for miles. However, as the decades passed, human encroachment has steadily crept toward Gombe National Park and swaths of deforestation surround the once pristine forests.
Dr. Goodall saw this firsthand when she was a passenger in an aircraft that flew over Gombe over 20 years ago. She saw that the park, once nestled among fertile, forested hills, was now surrounded by land that had been stripped bare. The cause of this rapid deforestation was human activity. As the human communities grew, they cleared more land for agricultural fields, chopped down more trees for wood, and ventured further and further into the forest. Dr. Goodall knew then that something needed to be done. Recognizing the rampant poverty in the surrounding communities, Jane knew that an approach that improved community health was the only way JGI would have any impact on the forests that the chimpanzees call home.”

Testing on Animals – Make It a Relic of the Past

Photo: PeTA

Photo: PeTA

Animal testing is slowly but hopefully surely being reduced in many countries if not stopped altogether. The more people are becoming aware of the uselessness of most – if not all –  of these tests the more are not buying into the necessity thereof and are looking for alternatives.

“Right now in Brazil, bill PLC 70/2014 on cosmetics testing on animals is being examined by the Senate. The bill – initially called PL 6602/13 – was written to prohibit all animal tests for cosmetics. Unfortunately, loopholes introduced in the Chamber of Deputies have made it ineffective and toothless.

If we don’t fix the bill, these loopholes will allow any animal test for cosmetics currently happening in Brazil to continue – even years after alternatives have been established. It will be a ban in name only that hardly saves a single animal. Companies will also be able to circumvent the ban by conducting cruel and unnecessary animal testing abroad and importing the cosmetic products into Brazil. We’re fighting for changes to strengthen the bill so that it will really protect animals in labs.

Speak out: Ask Senators to support our proposal for a REAL ban on cosmetic tests on animals.

The European Union and India have done it already. Tell your Senators that you want Brazil to join the growing list of countries which have stopped these tests.”
