No Chance for Life when Money Is Involved

Farmers in Oregon reported the death of four of their calves and a sheep to the authorities. That meant the death penalty for a family of wolves, the alleged killers. The “eye for an eye” killings of the wolves were executed; father, mother and two children were shot and killed by officials from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The farmers did not mourn their dead animals because of their bond to four living beings, but because their property had been destroyed. The wolves had no chance of surviving their deeds, even though it could be argued that they had simply followed their survival instincts.

“The bullet he’d been dodging for many years finally caught up with the great Oregon wolf, OR4, on March 31. In the early afternoon, officials from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife shot to death the patriarch of the Imnaha Pack from a helicopter over Wallowa County, an area where gray wolves dispersing from Idaho first began returning to Oregon, where they’d been killed off in the mid-20th century. Shot along with OR4 was his likely pregnant partner, OR 39, known as Limpy for an injured and badly healed leg, and their two young offspring.

The animals were shot after state wildlife officials determined that they killed four calves and a sheep on private pastureland on the fringes of the pack’s territory in northeast Oregon.”

Students Need Not Despair: There Are Alternatives to Dissecting Real Animals

To motivate students in class to learn it is important to keep them interested in the subject. In the beginning of each school year many students come back from their summer break eager to find out what the new classes will bring (well, most kids would probably prefer a longer summer break but hope for not too boring classes).

Especially in biology and anatomy classes students will learn about how the body functions, if taught right a fascinating subject. Sadly, most schools have not yet learned that there are several humane tools for teaching out there.

“It’s September, and millions of students and educators are back in school—it’s a time of new beginnings. Unfortunately, the new school year will bring a cruel end for millions of animals, including cats, frogs, sharks, fetal pigs, mink, who will be dissected in classroom demonstrations.”

Good News: Wyoming Wolves Protected Under The Endangered Species Act

It is wonderful to share some good news:

“A federal judge ruled that Wyoming wolves must once again be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Today, it is no longer legal in Wyoming to shoot wolves on sight, chase them down with vehicles, or gas wolf pups in their dens—all of which were permissible under Wyoming’s flawed wolf management scheme.”

Due to the public´s outcry the governor of the state of Washington stopped the killing of the wolf pack known as the Huckleberry Pack. Several organizations have helped in this fight for the lives of the wolves, one of them being the Center for Biological Diversity.

“We breathed a sigh of relief this weekend as officials in Washington state finally called off the hunt for the Huckleberry wolf pack. The pack, hounded by helicopter snipers and trappers on the ground, faced the very real possibility of being destroyed within a matter of days.”

Thank to all who have helped so far!
