Video Updates Of Tidus The Dog Purposely Set On Fire

Comments Off on Video Updates Of Tidus The Dog Purposely Set On Fire

“It’s wonderful to see Tidus making slow, but steady progress; although I see much sadness & fear in his beautiful eyes. Tidus was found, tied to a fence, after disappearing from the park; where he was playing with his owner. Some teenagers had taken Tidus, poured flammable liquid all over his body; then set him alight.”

Viewer Discretion Advised – however they are nothing like the first videos of Tidus as his burns are covered with bandages up!

Deforestation in Niger

Pctured here is the Baban Rafi Forest, which NASA calls the most significant piece of woodland in the Maradi Department of Niger. This area is located on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in Africa. On the left is Jan. 12, 1976. On the right, Feb. 2, 2007. NASA points out that the darker green areas in the 1976 photo represent the natural landscape of savannah and Sahelian vegetation. In the 2007 photo, these areas are greatly reduced, largely because the population in the area quadrupled. Agricultural demands are a major reason deforestation has increased so dramatically in the past decades. As in the case here, farmers often use these lands at near-continual production, giving the land virtually no time to recover its fertility.

Deforestation in Haiti

Here we see the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. On the left is Dec. 28, 1973. On the right is a snapshot taken Jan. 22, 2010. These photos perhaps best exemplify the political and economic strife that can exacerbate deforestation in a region. In the 2010 image, you can see significant deforestation on the Haiti side, with less occurring in the Dominican Republic. Often, the worst examples of deforestation often occur in areas in desperate need of political stability, as rising populations and unstable economies can lead to a greater encroachment on undeveloped lands. NASA calls Haiti embroiled in crisis “without parallel,” plagued by both a 2004 political coup against then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and the more recent devastating earthquake of 2010 that killed more than 300,000 people.

Deforestation in Paraguay

There are two different kinds of rain forest, temperate and tropical. Both rain forests are notable for having a high accumulation of rainfall when compared to plant growth. Temperate rain forests generally have a lower rate of evaporation and cooler temperatures. They are much rarer and occur in coastal regions at 37-60° latitude. Both kinds of rain forests are found on every continent except Antarctica, and only 50 percent of these forests remain on Earth.
Here we see part of the South American Atlantic Forest, which NASA calls one of the most threatened tropical rain forests on Earth. On the left is Feb. 23, 1973. On the right is Jan. 10, 2008. In almost three decades, the forest has been cut down to only 7 percent of its original size. The forest runs along the Atlantic coast through parts of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. However, it is the Paraguay part of the forest that has been most decimated. Tropical rain forests of our planet play a key part in cooling the planet. And this is not just South America’s problem. “Tropical deforestation will disrupt rainfall pattern far outside the tropics, including China, northern Mexico, and the south-central United States,”writes NASA.

Man Charged With 43 Counts Of Animal Cruelty

Comments Off on Man Charged With 43 Counts Of Animal Cruelty

MUNCIE, Ind. — A Muncie man faces 43 criminal charges after police seized 25 pit bulls from an alleged dog-fighting training facility.

Rahsaan Johnson

Delaware County prosecutors accused Rahsaan Johnson, 36, of promoting animal-fighting contests or engaging in animal cruelty. Thirty-four of the 43 counts filed Friday are felonies.

Police officers and animal shelter workers removed the pit bulls from a squalid mobile home during a late March raid in which they found some dogs in crates and others chained outdoors.

An affidavit said U.S. Customs agents told police Johnson had picked up two of the pit bulls shipped in from the Dominican Republic at Indianapolis International Airport only days before the raid.

Johnson’s initial hearing was scheduled for Wednesday. He remains jailed on a $251,000 bond.
