Shooting Prairie Dogs With Donald Trump, Jr.

On Earth Day, when millions around the world were celebrating ways to give back to nature and protect our planet, Donald Trump, Jr. was in Montana shooting prairie dogs with Greg Gianforte. It’s not illegal to kill prairie dogs in Montana, even if they’re pregnant or nursing prairie dogs. But what does it do to a fragile ecosystem where myriad other animals such as burrowing owls, black-footed ferrets, and nesting birds depend on prairie dogs for their survival? It may not be illegal to interfere with the delicate balance of nature – but is it ethical, especially when it’s being done for no other reason than “fun?” What Donald Trump, Jr. has done very successfully is shine a light on the shameful activities of trophy hunters. He and his brother relish shooting wild game in Africa and have posted images of themselves with their trophies – including a leopard, bull, waterbuck and an elephant. Trophy hunters maintain that these killings are necessary for conservation and attract needed revenues to African nations. […]

Police K-9s Deserve Better Care And Assistance

You’ve probably seen them sniffing around airports, or taking down suspects on TV. Or maybe you’ve seen one in your town, patrolling in his cruiser in case there’s trouble. Police K-9s are everywhere, filling any number of highly specialized jobs and support duties on the force—keeping America safe, one whisker at a time.But despite their wide recognition and being highly regarded by the public for their contributions to society, working police dogs are the least-funded members of the force.According to the National Police Dog Foundation (NPDF), this is because K-9s are considered a specialty unit, which means you can run a department without them—unlike police cars, police officers, and their training.Departments must often rely on grants or public fundraising campaigns to finance their canine partners.These grants help with purchasing the dogs, training them (and their handlers), housing and feeding the animals, and outfitting patrol vehicles to accommodate a dog. But what about their veterinary care?Without the assistance of programs like NPDF, working and retired police dogs are at risk for shorter and less comfortable lives because the costs of their medical care can be a heavy burden […]

How The Michael Vick Case Brought Us Closer To Ending Dog Fighting

Ten years ago this week, a watershed event in animal cruelty captured the nation’s attention: the investigation of NFL quarterback Michael Vick for dog fighting. But looking back, the most important milestone was not so much the story of a superstar convicted of operating a dog fighting ring. Instead, it was the revelation to most Americans that dog fighting is still active, popular across the country, and sadistically enjoyed by the kinds of people we thought we knew.Whether or not you believe in Vick’s rehabilitation, or that his crimes should be forgiven and forgotten, the Vick case was instrumental in bringing about critical advancements in our tools and our ability to further curb dog fighting.For example, 10 years ago, it was common for dogs seized in dog fighting cases to be immediately euthanized due to the perception that they’re inherently aggressive and dangerous. The Vick case triggered behavior experts to take a harder look. Now, dogs are evaluated as individual animals, and placement decisions are based on behavior, not on background or circumstances. In fact, of the 49 Vick dogs evaluated by the ASPCA-led team, only one was deemed behaviorally unfit for rehabilitation, sanctuary placement, or adoption.Other advancements since the Vick case:Major Dog Fighting RescuesSince 2007, the ASPCA, along with other rescue groups, have worked closely with federal, state and local authorities to infiltrate major organized dog fighting networks, including the largest (July 2009) and second largest (Aug 2013) dog fighting raids in U.S. […]

Donald Trump Just Signed A Death Sentence For Hibernating Bear & Wolf Cubs, Mothers In Wildlife Refuges

What kind of person thinks its acceptable to sneak into the dens of hibernating bears, and dogs nursing their young, and shoot or gas babies and their mothers as they sleep? Self-admitted serial molester, avid defender of the ‘sport’ killing of endangered species, and current President Donald J. Trump, that’s who. Every single Republican Senator voted in favor of legalizing this barbarity. Every single Democrat voted against the law.The bill also allows hunters to shoot animals from helicopters, and use atrociously cruel steel leg-hold traps that can leave wild dogs in agony for days at a time. Mother dogs (yes, wolves and coyotes are wild dogs; see a dictionary or biology textbook for details) regularly bite off their own legs in desperation to try and escape from the traps and return to their babies, who will subsequently freeze or starve to death as a result.For anyone wondering, the candidate who won the 2016 election by nearly 3 million votes, Hillary Clinton, had a 100%+ voting record on animal rights issues before leaving the Senate. It goes without saying that if the United States were a functioning democracy, and the will of an overwhelming majority of voters was respected, a President Clinton would have joined the unanimous will of Democratic Senators and vetoed the bill […]

Ultimate Old Soul Lorde Is Obsessed With Hanging Out at a 24-Hour Diner

Old soul and star singer Lorde is quirky: it’s her trademark, along with the signature offbeat, stripped-down music with lyrics that pack punch. So it should come as no surprise that the “Green Light” artist has some old-school preferences when it comes to hangout locales. Namely, she enjoys spending downtime in a nondescript 24-hour diner while she’s in New York, according to a new New York Times profile of the 20-year-old Kiwi. “Some low-key genius did the decorating,” Lorde explained of her attachment to the place, an unassuming open-all-night spot in midtown Manhattan dotted with potted houseplants and serving up her preferred eggs and zucchini sticks. “There’s something beautiful in every corner.” Plus, apparently the clientele is “mostly old,” leaving her unnoticed. She often tries to fly under the radar, taking public transportation and Ubers, where apparently she doesn’t get recognized. “I spent about four months here last year with my laptop out and my headphones on, listening to demos, looking at lists of what I needed to get done and writing songs,” she further elaborated on her connection to the diner. “People must have thought I was an aspiring poet or something.” The one downside: she needed to block out the Top 40 music the restaurant played at all times. The precocious Lorde, who catapulted onto the global pop stage after debuting breakout album Pure Heroine in 2013, has spent the last four years mostly out of the spotlight. Her sophomore album, Melodrama, drops in June. […]
