All Our Lovely Creatures

The world's got a nosebleed and we're flooding
but we keep on cutting the trees in the forest
and we keep on paying those freaks on the tv
who claim they will save us but want to enslave us and
sweating like demons, they scream through our speakers
but we leave the sound on cause silence is harder and
no one's the killer and no one's the martyr
The world that has made us can no longer contain us
and prophets are silent then rotting away...

for a healthy planet and protecting our lovely creatures, big and small. Educating and empowering citizens to sustain their community through environmental stewardship. Be Eco-fabulous! -Raven

Snapperfest: Stop the Torture of the Snapping Turtle
Animal abuse happens everywhere, but one county in Indiana takes animal cruelty to a whole new level with its yearly Snapperfest.
Snapperfest is an annual festival held in Ohio County, Indiana, in which families come to watch competitors abuse snapping turtles. Contestants grab the animals by the tails and slam them to the ground. The turtles are spun around in the air by their heads until the contestant can wrap the neck around his fist. Most of the turtles die from injuries or stress.
Children watching the festivities are consequently witness to extreme animal cruelty on the part of humans at young ages.
The fact is animal abuse often leads to more serious, harmful crimes. To teach these values to children is a grave oversight of logic.
The next Snapperfest is scheduled for August 20, 2012. Write to Indiana Governor Mitchell E. Daniels asking him to ban Snapperfest before August 20 — for good!

I watched this movie yesterday.  Its a documentary about the subculture of keeping exotic animals as pets.  And it was the most depressing movie I’ve seen in months.  If you already have a pretty good idea that its a bad idea to keep lions and poisonous snakes as pets, don’t watch this movie.  You’ll just end up rocking in a corner, crying over how selfish and stupid and horrible humanity is.  Never mind that the main guy is out to help these animals…the heartbreaking footage of the film will stick with you more than the promise of hope. Just…fair warning.

R.I.P.: The World’s Ugliest Dog

The 15-year-old current standard bearer for mangy mutts around the globe (and current “World’s Ugliest Dog” Champeen), Yoda the Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix, has passed. The world will miss his twisted gait and the twinkle in his one good eye.

The Bull Who Cried:Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion.As reported by “Weekly World News”, a group of workers… walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull… was all in tears.How did he know he was going to get killed before he entered the slaughter house? He is even smarter than people.Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, “When I saw this kind of so-called “stupid” animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling.” “I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn’t want to move and sat there crying.”Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, “People thought animals didn’t cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby.” At that time, more than ten strong men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering even felt more touched and teared as well.Other workers working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. It was all packed with people. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals.With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life.After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, “When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us.”How did he understand people’s words?Mr. Shiu said “Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable.” No doubt, this bull changed these butchers’ lives. Hopefully this story has in turn changed yours.

The Bull Who Cried:

Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion.

As reported by “Weekly World News”, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs.

This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight, the injustice to the animal

VERY TOUCHING STORY>
Was not aware of this. Beautiful. Such a horrific and barbaric “sport”. As a species, we are better than this.

MAKE THE CONNECTION.
"And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight, the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

PETS ON DEATH ROW

Eight wonderful cats have had their lives turned upside down and now are sentenced to death in the morning at NYC ACC. Please share them tonight - FOSTER & ADOPT. Help us save their lives, they deserve EVERY EFFORT from us. ♥

How it Works:Adopting a Cat From The “To Be Destroyed” AlbumIf you decide to adopt a cat that is on the “To Be Destroyed” list, you must act fast. Any cat on the list, can be destroyed the following morning. We try to post the list every night at 6PM. You then have 2 hours to call the shelter and advise of your intentions. After 8, you must either have a rescue call, and place a hold, or YOU MUST CALL THE SHELTER THE NEXT MORNING BEFORE 8AM! Do not wait because I guarantee that the shelter will not wait either. Euth’s begin at 6am. Call early!”HOW TO” INFO-CLICK on LINK: http://www.facebook.com/PetsOnDeathRow?sk=info fb wall https://www.facebook.com/PetsOnDeathRow?sk=wall

Humans kill 100 million sharks a year
…and for what?

  • shark finsfor a tasteless bowl of soup
  • shark teeth for jewelry
  • shark jawsfor tourist souvenirs
  • shark skinfor leather wallets/belts
  • shark cartilage capsules and powders for phony medicinal cures
  • shark liver oilfor cosmetics/skin care products

Sharks are in Danger

100 million sharks are killed each year-by longlines, by “sport” fishermen, or by a barbaric practice known as shark finning. Hooked sharks are hauled onto boats; their fins are sliced off while they are still alive. These helpless animals are then tossed back into the ocean where, unable to swim without their fins, they sink towards the bottom and die an agonizing death.

With 90% of the world’s large shark populations already wiped out, sharks are being depleted faster than they can reproduce. This threatens the stability of marine ecosystems around the world. Sharks are vitally important apex predators. They have shaped marine life in the oceans for over 400 million years and are essential to the health of the planet, and ultimately to the survival of mankind. Sea Shepherd patrols marine protected areas, exposing the corruption that drives this multi-billion dollar industry and directly intervening to stop the brutal slaughter of sharks.
