Comments Off on Graphic Image: Twelve Year Old Facing Jail Time For Dog Abuse

“If this sick little shit isn’t severely punished now, then you can expect to be reading more stories of animal abuse; committed by him! A hard time in Jail, is what’s needed, nothing less will do!!”

A 12-year-old Louisiana boy is facing jail after admitting to pouring scalding water on a stray dog.

The Sabine Parish Humane Society was informed that a stray dog may have been injured at the Timbers Apartment Complex in Many, LA.

Joe Dewil of the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office says a boy admitted to burning the dog with boiling water because she kept getting into their trash.

she suffered first and second-degree burns on much of her back, ear and left hind leg

“How somebody could do it. Like, why? Why would you want to do it?” asked Hunter Tarpley, who works summers at SPHS.

The six-month-old stray black Lab puppy is being called Amazing Grace, given the fact that she was so friendly and playful with her rescuers just hours after receiving such a horrific injury.

“Just horrible, but she was still wagging her tail, running and jumping,” Tarpley said. “A dog that can survive that, pretty amazing.”

Though she suffered first and second-degree burns on much of her back, ear and left hind leg, she seems to be recovering quite well.

“She is getting bathed once a day and we put ointment application on twice a day,” said Jack Ross of SPHS. “I was kind of surprised to see the extent of it, but I was more amazed at the fact that she was still very friendly, and likes humans and hasn’t been soured on the human race yet.”

The boy will soon be in court to determine his punishment for simple cruelty to animals, which for a child his age could carry a six-month jail sentence or a fine up to $1,000.

“It’s a serious crime because you’re intentionally inflicting harm on an animal,” Dewil said.

Once Amazing Grace’s injuries have healed, she will be up for adoption. Several people have already expressed an interest in her, but nothing has been decided yet. If you would like more information or to adopt, please visit the Sabine Parish Humane Society.

“That’s the amazing thing about a dog, you know,” said SPHS Manager Lisa Butler. “No matter what you do to them or how they’re treated, they’ll always turn around and love again. They don’t hold grudges.”

Comments Off on Drunk Man Lets Dog Wander Outside Elevator As The Doors Shut, Hanging The Dog

“WTF…I’m presuming I wasn’t the only one screaming at the computer, whilst watching this horrific event unfold; I was shouting…”You Stupid F$~,?%^$&*^% quite a lot!! Then the couple appear from down the hall, take a look, & I’m thinking “thank God, somebody to save the dog”…but they went back inside their apartment & didn’t come out for what seemed like ages! Then when they did come back out, it seemed as if they were too late, dilly dallying about like they had all day to think about it!! It should have taken no longer than 2 minutes to find some scissors to cut the lead; & get the dog down!”

“What a bunch of numb nuts…the guy inside the elevator, why didn’t he just stop & get out at the next floor & run down or up (depending on direction) stupid dick head, Or better still, made sure the animal was inside the lift before it set off, as it nearly did with the dogs head half out!! And the guys in the hallway…well theywere just Fxxxxxg pathetic!!!”

“Anyhow, I’m posting this more for identity reasons; although the person who viewed the CCTV footage should have got animal welfare or police involved, If he was the caretaker or something, he would have known exactly who they were & where they live…was it him that uploaded it?? Whichever, please still sign the petition. I can’t believe the dog didn’t suffer any damage to his trachea!”

It is important to let the world know that we should love and care our dog. Human should protect them and be responsible to their safety. I sincerely hope that everyone can sign this petition to raise awareness and also find out this man. Justice should for everyone, even he/she is just a dog.

Thank you for your support!

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Tigers And Leopards May Be Killed If Posing Danger To Humans: NTCA

Comments Off on GRAPHIC VIDEO: Tigers And Leopards May Be Killed If Posing Danger To Humans: NTCA

“This is ridiculous, these big cats only turn man eaters when their other meat has been had for tea by the villagers or gone off elsewhere due to the habit forever decreasing!! The people that live around there don’t wait for officials as it is…so God help the poor animals that the villagers catch up with now!! It hardly seems fair, I mean the tigers were in the forest before people started popping up all over!”

“The big cats habitat is being destroyed at an alarming rate, so what are they supposed to do for food? Obviously they are going to take a villagers goat or cow for supper; they wouldn’t attack & eat humans if they had plenty meat running around the forest! If the villagers don’t want their livestock eaten, they should build bigger fencing; or better still, don’t  live in the tigers domain! Don’t kill the tigers because they got too close to humans; it’s the other way around, the villagers got too close to the animals. Perhaps more birth control wouldn’t go a miss, for all the women of these small villages; that appear to be sprouting up all over the tigers domain!!”

“Going on past history, the villagers have not waited for the forest department to come & capture a tiger or leopard that has attacked & or killed a human or cattle! I can understand their hate toward the big cat; but killing it won’t bring a person back. Capture & release into another part of the forest is the best for all concerned. If only the powers that be, could arrive much quicker, perhaps the villagers would not take matters into their own hands; therefore the whole scenario could be defused without harming the animal!”

 “Now with the added go ahead as laid-out below in the news post, it’s almost giving the villagers more of a green light to kill the animals themselves; which is the worst thing that could happen! The villagers go into a mob mode & I have seen the violence they inflict on the animals they capture; they go absolutely crazy! It’s almost like a celebration, they have caught the cat & so, inflict their own means of punishment towards it! Even if officials are there, they can’t control the mob mentality of the crowds, who seem to come from nowhere? Pushing & shoving, camera phones held high; all waiting to get a glimpse of the killer about to be killed.”

“There are some horrific videos, of villagers who have caught, what they assume is the animal that killed their cattle; whilst in a frenzied mode, they repeatedly club the cornered cat to death! These villagers don’t need even more of a loop hole to kill the big cats. What needs to be done ASAP is have more armed rangers in & around all the villagers, with phones to request backup & trucks that hold cages & more importantly sedatives; ready at a moments notice to rescue a big cat that the villagers have cornered, timing is of paramount importance ! I’m not sure what the forest rangers have by way of authority over the villagers…but that also need to be changed.. as it is very clear the villagers are not afraid of the forest rangers, as is evident in so many videos, where the rangers appear to be doing nothing at all! Perhaps it could be down to numbers, if it’s only 3 rangers to 300 villagers; they are probably more scared of the swelling mob & their safety, than they are of retrieving the cat!!

“I have posted a video, which happens to be one of the worst things I have ever witnessed, it will forever haunt me in my dreams. Just the thought of it brings tears to my eyes. I’m showing it so that people can see, just how heinous the attacks on the big cats that are caught, really are; it is the cats that need the protecting, for sure! I find it hard to believe, in this era, that so many humans could want to inflict such formidable & macabre acts! Please note I have put the video at the very end, so those who don’t want to see it, will have to stop scrolling down at a certain point.

NEW DELHI: Tigers and leopards, accorded highest protection under the Wildlife Act, may now be killed with due permission from authorities if they pose a threat to human life or are disabled or diseased beyond recovery.

Tigers are thriving in and around India’s Nagarhole National Park, with a regional population of 250. “If we do everything right, we can have 500,” says big-cat biologist Ullas Karanth.  Read more: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/The-Fight-to-Save-the-Tiger.html#ixzz1qG95oEf7

This is part of new guidelines issued by the National Tiger Conservation Authority in the wake of increased incidents of man-animal conflicts.

“Tiger as well as leopard are categorized under Schedule I of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, with highest statutory protection against hunting under Section 9 (1) of the said Act.

“Hence, such species can be killed if they become dangerous to human life or are so disabled/diseased beyond recovery,” the guidelines for declaration of big cats as ‘man-eaters‘ state.

As both tigers and leopards are known to turn into man-eaters, “such confirmed ‘man-eaters’ should be eliminated as per the statutory provisions provided in Section 11 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972.”

The guidelines state that the chief wildlife warden of a state alone has the authority to permit hunting of animals which have become dangerous to human life or disabled or diseased beyond recovery.

As per the statutory requirement, a chief wildlife warden has to give in writing the reasons for permitting elimination before hunting, they say.

According to the NTCA, there are several reasons for a big cat to get habituated as a ‘man-eater’ including disability due to old age, incapacitation due to serious injury or loss of its canines, among others.

“However, there may be several exceptions, and hence specific reasons have to be ascertained on a case-to-case basis,” the NTCA said.

The tiger bearing forests and areas nearby prone to livestock depredation, besides having human settlements along with their rights and concessions in such areas, are generally prone to ‘man-eaters’, the guidelines state.

Loss of habitat connectivity in close proximity to a tiger source area owing to various land uses also foster straying of tiger near human settlements, eventually ending up as a ‘man-eater’.

“This is very gruesome & hard to believe human beings could be capable of such a despicable violent act; to an animal already caged. I have sent this video to a friend of mine in India who is an animal advocate & Media Adviser of OIPA in India / PFA Haryana; he will forward this to the right people if not already done so; I read it was filmed in 2008, so it could have already been dealt with. Please note the quality of this video including the sound is very bad quality, it settles after a minute or two!

“WARNING – View Discretion Is Strongly Advised”

 Leopard being burned alive in Uttarkhand, India, PLEASE DO SOMETHING!
PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION IN FULL!
A leopard that was killing cattle and local villagers was caught, caged and burned alive in the summer of 2008. It remained alive for several hours after, writhing in agony while the police and forest officials watched. I have the list of people who did this. Forest officials, police, and people of the village. You can download it here:
http://www.beyondclix.com/files/Uttar…
We got the information but are at a loss for what to do. Please help!!!!
Please share! Please spread the word! More people should know about what happened. People who can do something about it should do try to do something!
PLEASE!Additional Note: I should have mentioned. Sorry. I did not shoot this video. Someone posted this in FB and we picked it up from there. We shared it with our friends and one of our friends then contacted Indian government under Right to Information Act asking for info on those forest officials. After waiting 6 months they sent the details. The link to download is in description. Then I tried to contact and even tried to meet many politicians and celebs but no one interested yet.
Still trying.Additional additional note: PLEASE don’t make this some country-bashing or religion-bashing thread. You’re taking away from what I’m trying to do. This has nothing to do with poverty or rich, rural or urban or any country in specific. This is about animal rights, empathy and sensitivity of all humans the world over. And I need you to spread the word. That’s all.
Please speak with people about it, online AND offline. Share it with top people. Share it with activists. With celebrities you may know. Your parents. Your friends. Your teachers. At parties. At meetings. Most of all share it with leaders and politicians. I need some help from powerful or important or even famous people. The Indian legal system isn’t much for animal rights in general yet, unless someone important is involved. Thus I will only achieve justice for that animal if you help!

Problem leopard dodges traps, kills woman

Comments Off on Problem leopard dodges traps, kills woman

The problem leopard in UmredKuhi area of Nagpur district killed a woman in a farm near Tarna village Tuesday, triggering tension and public anger.

The animal had earlier injured three people. Efforts by the forest department to capture it since the first attack on August 10 have not succeeded.

“The leopard pounced on Babybai Uike, aged about 50 years, when she was sowing chillies with five or six other women around 5.30 pm. The woman’s shrieks attracted the group which raised an alarm, following which the animal ran away. But Babybai succumbed on the spot,Divisional Forest Officer P K Mahajan told The Indian Express.

Villagers angry with the forest department’s failure to capture the leopard refused to collect Babybai’s body for two hours after the incident. “This will probably mean the villagers will take it upon themselves to find, catch & probably burn the leopard; as they have done on previous occasions!”

“We have put up two cages since August 15, but it is refusing to fall into the trap,” Mahajan said.

“Despite so much pressure, the animal is hardly deterred.”

Nobody seems to know why the leopard began attacking humans. Unlike most cases of man-animal conflict, the attacks have happened in villages and farms, not forests. “Which are still within the leopard’s dining area!!”

“This is clearly a crisis. From my experience in western Maharashtra, I can say that leopards that have been trapped once succeed in avoiding cages. Also, those caught outside protected areas but released inside generally tend to get into conflict with humans,” wildlife biologist and leopard scholar Vidya Athreya said.

A leopard was caged on June 10 after it entered a house in Ranbodi village nearby, and was released in the wild the next day.

Mahajan said the problem leopard could be the same one. “We are checking available photographs. It could be the same animal.”

Asked why shoot orders were not being issued, Mahajan said, “I will now send a report to Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) S W H Naqvi, who will take a call.”

Asked for a comment, Naqvi said, “We have to exhaust all options before shoot orders are issued. I will decide after getting a report from the DFO.” “Of course they can’t just go round shooting all the leopards that villagers see close up, they are a protected species…not that the villagers care. I have seen some horrific videos of what villagers will do to any that they can catch, beating them to death or burning them alive! Perhaps public housing is more likely to be edging further into the leopards domain…not the other way around…that or the locals are killing meat usually hunted by the leopard; for their own family’s to feed on…hence no food for the leopards!”

“Having just found this video, I thought I would include as it show’s the villagers mentality on finding a leopard. Villagers go into mob mode, their like screaming banshees, possessed, the appear by the hundreds (don’t know how or who calls them) & will kill either leopard or officials if there are only a few. You can see the hatred they have for the leopard, throwing rocks at it’s head, when the poor bloody thing only want’s to get back to forest!”

“Thank God the superintendence of police got more back up or else this could have ended with 2 deaths. I think they should look into training more people who are able to dart & know the leopards behaviour!!”

Man eater leopard caged in Dudhala

Comments Off on Man eater leopard caged in Dudhala

AHMEDABAD: The forest department finally caged a man eater leopard who had created terror in theDudhalal area after he killed a mentally unstable person who was sleeping along the road side. 

Forest officials said that before a couple of days Haku Koli (42) was sleeping along the road side when he was attacked by the leopard. The leopard dragged him about 150 meters and took him in the nearby field where the animal killed Haku.

After this incident, the forest department was keeping a watch on the movement of the leopard and finally it decided to trap the leopard and bring it to the rescue centre. Since the leopard was spotted mainly in the field of Kantibhai, two cages with live bait were laid in the field.

On Monday night the leopard came close to the cage but left again in the wee hours, the leopard came close to the cage and entered one of the two cages. As soon as it entered it was trapped.

The man eater animal will now be kept in the rescue centre in Gir east where it would be treated and if every thing goes off smoothly the big cat would again be released in the wild, said a forest officer.

Rare White Buffalo Hunt – Face Book Post

Comments Off on Rare White Buffalo Hunt – Face Book Post

“This was sent to me from a friend on face book”

Oh GOD….LOOK WHAT THEY HAVE DONE…..!!!!!!!!!!!!! and DO NOT FORGIVE THEM BUT THANKS to the Lakota and Caddo people, this has stopped and there is information that the owner of the lodge now wants to breed white buffalo to replace the ones killed….better transform the lodge into a sanctuary for wild animals in need….Just this past week a story had broken that had outraged and horrified a lot of people around the world.

We are shocked to read your statement :Texas Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest the Authentic and Rare White Buffalo. … There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the White Buffalo, or White Bison, in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

Although the buffalo in the U.S. are no where near the great numbers that they used to be, when they were flourishing they used to number between 60 – 80 million head. Under those favorable conditions, the chances of such an unusual white buffalo appearing was about 1 in 10 million.

But although there are only approximately around 125,000 buffalo today, the odds against one being born have increased dramatically.Understanding just how important the white buffalo is then, it becomes extremely hideous and despicable that you are now offering the chance to kill these majestic and spiritually significant creatures

.For $13,500, a person can go there and do exactly that.These are canned hunts which means the animal has no chance for escape and is in an enclosed area that makes it extremely easy to kill them.They are also usually very used to the presence of humans so they do not have the fear of man as would a wild bison

In most cases, they are like grazing cattle living in domesticated environments like cattle. They do not have the instincts to run and hide like Deer.White buffaloes are sacred animals to the Lakota Sioux and other Native groups, and there aren’t a lot of the creatures around.You also do not have respect for the beliefs of others and no respect for life! This practice must be stopped immediately !
