The Penguin Foundation is asking knitters world-wide to send them penguin sized pullovers in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
PLEASE SPREAD THE LOVE OF PENGUIN PULLOVERS FOR A GOOD CAUSE
According to this FB post, this is this hunter’s ‘training method.’ This is horribly sadistic and cruel. I wonder how many hunters do this?
Today, 11 states still allow deer hunting with dogs. Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
Deer hunting with dogs causes more deer to die of infectious wounds than even bow hunting because the deer are usually running, and the vast majority of hunters can not hit a moving target.
Often times, if the dogs are able to run the deer down and overwhelm the animal, the dogs will start eating the deer alive until the hunter is able to track down the GPS coordinates and call the dogs off.
Bison were hunted almost to extinction in the late 19th century primarily by market hunters and were reduced to a few hundred by the mid-1880s. They were hunted for their skins, with the rest of the animal left behind to decay on the ground. After the animals rotted, their bones were collected and shipped back east in large quantities.
This is a very shameful event in our history. We now need to work to make sure this never happens again, and to help the bison recover.
