The RSPCA is trying to trace the owners of a Cat who was found by a member of the public dumped in a wheelie bin in Merthyr Tydfil with severe injuries.

As well as the shocking adnominal injury which had left her intestines hanging out, the young tortoiseshell cat also had serious lacerations to her tail.

The Cat – who has since been dubbed Hope – was otherwise in good body condition and had a pink leopard print collar with a bell but was not microchipped.

The RSPCA believes she may have been injured and then deliberately dumped in Lupin Close, Merthyr Tydfil, on or around 9 April.

“The person who found the poor cat only discovered her because they heard her miaowing. It is amazing she still had the strength to cry, as she was so badly injured she couldn’t even move,” said RSPCA inspector Sian Burton.

“There is no doubt this cat will have suffered extreme pain and distress. To be so badly injured and then dumped in the dark and left to die. It is just awful.

“Her poor owners may be searching for her, and don’t know what’s happened,” she added.

The cat was taken to a vets in Newport, where she underwent emergency treatment, including amputating part of her tail.

While at the vets, they also discovered the poor cat was pregnant. Thanks to swift work by the vets they have managed to keep the kittens in their mum’s tummy, where they seem to be doing well despite the ordeal.

So far she seems to be responding well and it is hoped she may make a full recovery.

The RSPCA is now hoping to trace the cat’s owner, as well as appeal for witness who may have seen what happened to her.

Causing unnecessary suffering to an animal can be prosecuted under the Animal Welfare Act and could face up to six months in prison and/ or a fine of up to £20,000.

Today’s War Horse: The War On Horses By The Barbi Twins

Today's War Horse: The War On Horses By The Barbi Twins

Today’s War Horse: The War On Horses By Shane and Sia The Barbi Twins

Horses are as symbolic as the country they built, America. It is a shame we don’t give them the respect they have earned. For centuries, horses shed their blood to give their service to us. It says a lot when a country has better laws for its flag (that doesn’t have a spine or feel pain), then it does for the horses. Horse slaughter and the wild-horse round ups have been the buzz in the media recently. Here are the common questions and facts about horse slaughter and wild horse round-up controversies.

Why is there an uproar about horses being slaughtered or abused more than other livestock animals?

Horses weren’t bred for human consumption; they were bred and domesticated to be companion animals like a dog or cat. They also helped build our country by working the farms, providing transport and even risking their lives in our battles.  In 1971, Congress voted to protect our wild horses with a special a special law.  They tasked the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with the responsibility.  Sadly, the BLM was the very agency that had been killing the horses they were asked to protect.

Does horse slaughter help our economy?

Actually, American tax dollars are used to support these foreign owned slaughter houses.  We are paying to provide inspections on meat that goes overseas. This is a big government merging with big business for profit. They hide this greed in the disguise of compassion by insisting slaughter is humane. The ringleader of pro-slaughter advocates recites her facts (propaganda) from an inconsistent and inaccurate GAO (Government Accounting Office) report.  Horse slaughter is a good profit business for foreign owned companies, as horsemeat goes for as much as $40/lb.

Common Confusion… If Congress unanimously voted in 1971 for the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) to be the government agency that protects wild horses, then why does the BLM insist on deadly round-ups? They end up harming the horses and not protecting them and all with tax payers’ money?

What tax payers didn’t know is that the BLM is made up of cattlemen, not horse advocates. The BLM was originally behind eradicating the horses.  They have always wanted to replace wild horses with cattle on the horses land. So why did the government put the BLM in charge of “protecting” the wild horses? Profit disguised as compassion once again by our government merging with big business and making a worse monopoly which leaves the tax payers left with the bill! The wild horses are slowly going extinct. There were 2,000,000 in 1900 and today we can only approximate to 20,000 in 10 western states. The cattle and oil rigs are now replacing the horses.

What is inhumane about slaughter and wild horse round-ups?

Both slaughter and wild horse round-ups are blatant animal cruelty. The helicopter round-ups spook the horses so they end up badly injured or trampled to death. Many times pregnant horses abort foals in these stampedes.  The remaining horses usually die from extreme neglect (hunger, thirst, overcrowding) in the inhumane holding pens. Ironically, this was the very excuse the BLM used to round-up the horses in the first place! Then the horses may be “adopted” by 3rd party kill buyers for slaughter even though it is illegal to slaughter a wild horse. The loading and transport of horses is also animal abuse. Any horse expert can tell you it’s harder on a horse than other livestock, whether it’s in the next city or across the border. Transporters stuff the horses in trailers way to small, without water, food or rest. This is pure brutality as many transporters admit.

One thing is for sure, slaughter is slaughter, and whether it’s done on US soil or foreign soil, it is animal abuse and cruelty. Horses brains are further back in the head which makes it harder to find, thus making shooting or killing the horses much more difficult than any other livestock. Horses sometimes have to be shot three to five times and throats slit to prevent screaming. There is proof that while carving into the horses many are still conscious. There is nothing humane about slaughter and it’s impossible to enforce it, as Dr. Temple Grandin, humane slaughter expert, even admitted. There are very few USDA laws to protect the horses and they are rarely enforced. “Humane slaughter” is an oxymoron.

Why should everyone care about horse slaughter bill passing?

For those who don’t care about horses, you should care your taxes are wasted on this, much more than the myth that this creates jobs. For those who were told that horse meat is better for you, they haven’t heard about the toxic warnings, dangerous drugs and medicines used in the horse industry. These are also hidden from the commercial market. Horses were not bred for eating!

What about the unwanted or abandoned horses?

Well just like with dogs and cats, it becomes the owner’s responsibility once we outlaw slaughter. This is a whole different animal issue, which is not solved with animal cruelty of horse slaughter. Moreover, the horse slaughter business only wants healthy horses.  A USDA study said that 92% of slaughter horses are in good condition.  Many victims of horse theft or horse fraud complain they have found that their horses had gone to slaughter. This is because kill buyers seek healthy, young horses in order to sell better quality meat. Many of the so-called abandoned horses were ironically from the horse killers themselves leaving behind the sickly horses at the borders that weren’t good enough for horsemeat.

Who is the blame for the abandoned horses?

The abandoned horses are not the problem; it is only a decoy from the truth. The real problem comes from the breeders and the breeder supporters who encourage incentives for the breeding of as many horses as possible. This is specifically true of Quarter horse breeders who are using artificial insemination. They promote slaughter as a dumping ground which opens a huge window of business for more breeding. By the way, most of the “abandoned” horses are Quarter horses which tell you right there what “their” agenda is!

What can we do?

First of all get the facts straight and don’t buy into the propaganda being spewed by pro-slaughter pitches or the clever BLM claims disguised as facts. Remember the BLM is just cattlemen with an agenda to replace the horses with cattle, gold or an oil pipeline. Then spread this factual information.

Right now there is a perfect “one stop solution” to end this all….a bill before the US Congress that stops all horse slaughter  in the US and stops all transport of American horses for slaughter to any foreign country. This bill is called the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. This bill was originally drafted in 2001 and introduced to Congress in 2002 by the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI), who has led this national effort for ten years. Chris Heyde, from AWI, worked tirelessly on state laws to shut down the three U.S. slaughter houses in 2007; two in Texas and one in Illinois. However, the ultimate goal is passage of a federal bill that will prevent any new plants from opening and will prevent American horses from being shipped to Mexico or Canada for slaughter.

Now the horses need your help. We have the power to end this permanently. All you have to do is call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Senators and Representative. Then tell them you are pro-horse and urge them to help pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 2966 and S. 1176) today! You can find out who your legislators are by visiting AWI’s Compassion Index at www.compassionindex.org.  Even more effective than a call, you can go to your elected officials’ local town hall and urge them to support these bills face to face.  Because this year is election year, your representatives are eager to hear what you want. We have the power with our vote, but also because it is election year. Congress closes early this year, so we have to act quickly. Barbi Twins Media Blog

Sick Comic Relief Asks, Save or Kill Pig To Raise Money!

Sickening – Lily Allen Offers Her Fans The Chance To Save or Kill A Pig For Comic Relief

Lily Allen used MySpace to first promote her music, eventually bagging a record contract after over a million people listened to her tracks. Her first album, Alright, Still, earned her nominations at the Grammys, Brits and MTV Video Awards.

Her second album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, marked a new direction for the singer, with tracks like The Fear having a more electropop edge. Allen had a brief spell on television, signing a one-series contract to present her own show, Lily Allen And Friends, and making a cameo appearance in Neighbours.

She also became a fashion darling, befriending Kate Moss and working with Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. Famous for speaking her mind, Allen has had public spats with Cheryl ColeElton John and showbiz editor Dan Wootton. In 2009, Allen announced she had no plans to make a further album, and opened a clothing ‘Lucy In Disguise’ with her sister in September 2010.

Lily Allen has taken to Twitter with an unusual fundraising request of her followers, in aid of this month’s Comic Relief, asking her followers whether to decide to if a Pig Should LIVE or DIE!!!!!

Comic Relief Do Something Funny - Decide On Whether A Pig Should Live or Die

Sickening – Comic Relief Do Something Funny – Decide On Whether A Pig Should Live or Die

The 27-year-old singer urged her fans to pledge money and donate to the Twitter Million Campaign – A Challenge on the Social Networking site to raise £1 million for the charity by encouraging them to decide on whether a Pig should Live or Die.

Doing her bit to help raise the finds, Allen asked her followers whether they wanted to save or kill one of her pigs.

Tweeting to her 4 million followers on the site, Allen posted:

“I will name one of my pigs after you and send you the sausages and bacon from it when I kill it. JOIN my #twittermillion team . Please [sic].”

Pig

She continued: “Or if you’re a vegetarian you can choose to spare the pig . #twittermillion JOIN MY TEAM !!!!”

Throughout the evening, she repeatedly urged her followers to donate to the cause, writing: “The highest bidder on my #twittermillion page will get a pig named after them and bacon from it when it’s killed.or the choice to spare it.”

The Not Fair hitmaker then changed her mind, saying that one donor would be picked at random to save or slaughter the pig.

Rounding off her fundraising for the evening, the singer ended with two final tweets, one containing the hashtag “#SAVETHEPIG” and the other “#DONTSAVETHEPIG“; both with links to her Twitter Million page in which people can donate money for Red Nose Day.

James White leaves Selby Magistrates Court. White, 21, Fried a Hamster and has been ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid of work in the community. Thursday March 7, 2013.

A student who fried a hamster while drunk has been ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work in the community.

James White, 21, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the female Syrian hamster after a court accepted it could not be established whether the animal was alive when it went into the pan.

District Judge Roy Anderson told White he was sentencing him on the basis the Hamster Died minutes before, when the defendant was handling it.

The hamster was found to have died from heart failure

Selby Magistrates’ Court heard White had drunk so much in his flat in York he was “on the point of madness” and could not remember what happened.

The judge said “it was clear the hamster did not die from natural causes”.

James White, who is studying International Relations and Politics at York University, changed his plea to guilty on Thursday on the basis that his Rough Handling of the Hamster Killed It, before he put it in the  Frying Pan.

District Judge Anderson said: “By virtue of your treatment of this small, unfortunate Hamster you have destroyed your good character and acquired a criminal conviction”.

“It’s accepted now, that there was Rough Handling of that Hamster, but that it could not be established, that it could not be proven, that putting the Hamster, in the Frying Pan and Applying Heat, had caused the Hamster Death.

Judge Anderson continued, “Had it been proven, that Sadistic Conduct, had been established, I would be dealing with you in a far more serious way, than I am.”

White was also Banned from Keeping Animals for Eight Years and ordered to pay £1,000 costs.

Phil Brown, Prosecuting, told the Court, The Police were called to a block of flats on February 2, 2013.

When Police Officers arrived they found White extremely Drunk and there was a “Strong and Pungent Smell” and there was a “Frying Pan next to the hob with a hamster in it”.

According to the Phil Brown, Prosecutor, James White told the Police Officers, I FUCKING Fried It?, I Fried It.

The court heard the Hamster, which belonged to James White’s flatmate, Died from Heart Failure.

Protection 4 Animals – Cold Weather Safety for Your Dog

Protection 4 Animals – Cold Weather Safety for Your Dog, Make Sure Their Safe and Warm for Winter.

If you live in a region where the winters are cold, then you probably have a yearly routine to prepare yourself for the season change. You might change out your wardrobe, get your car ready for winter, and insulate your home. Don’t forget to take precautions to keep your dog warm and healthy. There are plenty of winter hazards out there, such as antifreeze and ice. Take steps to keep your dog safe! Here are some cold weather tips to you and your dog this winter:

Do not leave your dog outside unsupervised without a heated shelter. Just because your dog has fur, it does not mean he can withstand the cold. Though some dog breeds (like Huskies and Malamutes) are better suited to cold weather, all dogs should have access to a warm shelter at all times. Most dogs do best living indoors. However, if your dog must live outdoors, provide a heated dog bed and adequate shelter.

Small dogs or those with little to no hair should have sweaters or jackets for protection against the cold. Some of the most common breeds that will benefit from protective clothing are Chihuahuas Miniature Pinschers Whippets and Greyhounds. Remember, not all dogs will tolerate clothing, so don’t push it – just make an extra effort to keep them out of the cold. Keep food and water in a place where they will not freeze – preferably inside! A heated dog bowl can help outdoor water and food from freezing.

Watch those feet! If your dog will tolerate it, consider foot protection booties. This can keep your dog’s feet safe from harm, such as dangerous objects hidden by the snow or salt on roads and walk ways. Additionally, booties can help give your dog a better grip and prevent slipping on ice.

Dog in Winter Snow

Dog in Winter Snow

When walking your dog near ice, use extra caution to avoid slipping. Always keep a close watch your dog and be sure he says nearby. Do not allow your dog to run across frozen bodies of water – he could fall into icy water if the ice is too thin!

If you use an indoor or outdoor fireplace, always keep a safety guard around it in order to protect your dog away from the flames and soot. Do not leave a fire unattended.

If your dog is in the cold and begins excessively shaking or shivering, get him back to warm shelter as soon as possible. If you suspect your dog is developing hypothermia, bring him to a vet immediately.

Avoid letting your dog eat snow or anything else on the ground. Dangerous objects or chemicals may be hidden in the snow. Also, eating snow this can cause stomach upset and even hypothermia. Always keep fresh room temperature water available at all times.

Beware antifreeze – It is highly toxic! Antifreeze tastes good to pets, but even a small amount can kill your dog. Though exposure to antifreeze is a risk all year, the risk is especially high during the colder months. Keep your eyes on your dog at all times – and keep antifreeze out of reach. If you suspect your dog has had ANY exposure to antifreeze, get to a vet right away.

In general, be sure to contact your vet if any abnormal behavior or signs of illness appear. Also, have a look at the cold weather checklist from the Veterinary Medicine guide.

Did you know that your dog’s normal temperature is a few degrees higher than yours? Winter is the perfect time of year to snuggle up – so have fun and stay warm!

James Backus – Cat’s Killing Leads To Cohoes, Albany, New York, USA Man’s Arrest

ALBANY, NEW YORK — A Cohoes man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly killed a cat by slamming its head into the sidewalk along South Pearl Street.

James Backus, 44, was charged with aggravated animal cruelty following an investigation that began after officers were told by another person that Backus had just killed a cat near the intersection of South Pearl and State streets, Albany Police spokesman Steven Smith said.

He said Backus allegedly picked up the cat by the tail and struck its head against the concrete four or five times. Backus then placed the cat, which was allegedly lying injured in the road after being hit by a car, in a city garbage can, Smith said.

Backus was arraigned Wednesday in city court and bail was set at $15,000, but a city court judge released Backus on his own recognizance.

Black Labrador Dog Leads Firefighter To Disabled Woman and Saves Her Life

Retired Fire Lieutenant Billy Mills was driving past the home in Bowie when he saw smoke.  Suspecting that a structure was on fire, he pulled over and followed the smoke.  He arrived at the residence just as fire crews showed up to respond to a person trapped inside.

Mills began performing a “360 check” of the house, and found a black lab “frantically scurrying about the backyard,” according to Prince George’s County Fire Department Spokesperson Mark Brady.  When the dog saw Mills coming toward him, he went to the sliding glass doors and barked continuously, looking inside.

Mills peered inside and saw an immobile woman on her hands and knees.  He rushed inside and escorted the woman out into her backyard.  Mills and her neighbor Hugh Owens, a former volunteer fire chief, then brought to the front yard to receive medical attention for smoke inhalation and burn injuries.

Firefighters did their best to contain the flames, but the house has been determined to be unsafe and unlivable.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Though the woman’s injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening, had her loyal dog not alerted Mills, she may have succumbed to smoke inhalation in a moment’s time.

Science Advisor says Badger Cull Plan is a ‘Crazy Scheme’

The Scientist whose Research is being cited by the UK Government to Justify its Plan to Cull (KILL) Badgers in England has described the scheme as “Crazy”.

Lord Krebs spoke to BBC News after the government’s environment advisory body Natural England has issued a culling licence to a consortium of landowners in Gloucestershire.

The cull is intended to control the spread of TB in cattle.

The scientist whose research is being cited by the government to justify its plan to cull badgers in England has described the scheme as “crazy”.

Lord Krebs spoke to BBC News after the government’s environment advisory body Natural England has issued a culling licence to a consortium of landowners in Gloucestershire.

The cull is intended to control the spread of TB in cattle.

Both groups will then have to show that they can pay for the culling and shoot them in sufficient numbers before full licences are granted. BBC News has been told that these could be issued in three weeks and intensive culling could begin immediately.

The culls will be monitored by an independent group for a period of six weeks. If the body is satisfied that the culls are effective and humane it will advise ministers to continue the trials for four years.

This would pave the way for further applications. Natural England will issue a maximum of 10 licences each year – with future culls.

The culls are intended to reduce TB in cattle by some 16% over nine years in the immediate area. Across England though the effect is much smaller, around 5%.

The aim of the pilot schemes is to assess the effectiveness of the government’s plan to slow down the spread of TB in cattle in England. The Welsh government has opted for a system of vaccination while Scotland is officially TB-free.

The plan is based on the results of a nine-year trial which showed that the spread of the disease could be slowed slightly if more than 70% of badgers in an area could be eradicated. If it was less than 70% – the spread of TB to cattle might even increase.

But the scientist who carried out the study has told BBC News that these pilot studies make no sense.

Lord Krebs, who is one of the government’s most respected scientific advisers, said that the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), which is administering the scheme, has no way of knowing how many badgers there are in the area, so will not know when they’ve killed 70% of the badgers in the area.

“I would go down the vaccination and biosecurity route rather than this crazy scheme that may deliver very small advantage, may deliver none. And it’s very hard to see how Defra are going to collect the crucial data to assess whether it’s worth going ahead with free shooting at all,” he said.

Defra has said that it would be using data from previous studies and would commission its own research to estimate badger numbers.

According to Prof Sir Robert Watson, a former science adviser to Defra, which is overseeing the process, culling alone will not solve the problem.

“Culling won’t solve the problem nationally (across England),” he told BBC News in a recent interview.

“But farmers in Devon, Cornwall and Gloucestershire are arguing that it can get between a 16% and 20% reduction which they think is significant and that they are willing to pay for.”

The culls are paid for by local groups of farmers and carried out by private contractors. Prof Watson said that he himself questioned whether the cost of the culls would be economically worthwhile.

“I would say the economics is very close as to whether it is worth it. But the government has made a decision that (it should be tried if farmers are willing to fund it),” he said.

“The question (then) is: ‘Is it a significant effect? Is it cost effective? Is it socially and ethically appropriate?”

The Pilot Areas

  • West Gloucestershire pilot area description: mainly in the county of Gloucestershire, predominantly within the council districts of the Forest of Dean and Tewkesbury, and parts lie within the districts of Wychavon, Malvern Hills and the south east part of the county of Herefordshire. The area does not include the public forest estate in the Forest of Dean.

  • West Somerset pilot area description: located in the county of Somerset. The application area predominantly lies within the council district of West Somerset and part lies within the district of Taunton Deane.

Animal welfare and wildlife campaigners have opposed the cull, which will allow wild badgers to be shot when they come out at night, but lost their fight in the High Court last week.

Defra says the action is necessary to protect cattle from bovine TB, which leads to the slaughter of thousands of cattle each year.

Defra Minister David Heath said: “Our priority has always been to ensure that any culling of badgers is carried out in a safe, humane and effective way.

“The licence for Gloucestershire issued by Natural England today meets all the strict criteria we imposed, and the pilot in this area will help us assess the effectiveness of controlled shooting before we look at a wider roll out to control the spread of bovine TB in cattle.

“No one wants to kill badgers but the science is clear that we will not get on top of this disease without tackling it in both wildlife and cattle.”

Plans to begin culling in Wales were recently abandoned in favour of a vaccination policy. There are no proposals to cull badgers in Scotland, where TB incidence is low.

Sir David Attenborough has been enlisted by the producers of a charity single in the battle for the Christmas number one.

The wildlife documentary maker appears in the video for the song, The Present of Life, which is being launched by BBC Springwatch presenter Chris Packham and is part of a campaign against plans for a Badger Cull.

The video features Packham on drums and weather forecaster Michael Fish on guitar. Rob da Bank, the Radio 1 DJ, also appear in the clip. The song is produced by eco-friendly clothing firm Rapanui.

The single is being sold on iTunes from December 7 to raise money for the Badger Trust, which campaigns against badger culling.

Packham said: “The battle for the coveted Christmas number one spot is always tough but one we are ready for. It will be difficult going up against the X-Factor but we’ll give it a good shot. It would be an amazing achievement.”

Rob Drake-Knight, from eco-friendly clothing firm Rapanui, said: “It was a great coup getting the likes of Chris and David on side. Hopefully they can help us to hit the number one spot and stop the badger cull at the same time.”

Sir David, 86, has previously spoken out against a badger cull, saying it could make the problem of cattle disease worse.

The purpose of the planned cull would be to control bovine tuberculosis. Farmers claim badgers spread the cattle disease and want permission to kill the protected woodland species.

But in an interview last year, Sir David said: “You may think culling [badgers] is the answer and it sounds easy to start with but it can very well make things much worse.

“At the moment TB is localised. If you kill all those badgers what happens then? Firstly those survivors will go out and carry the disease to areas that were hitherto unaffected.

“Other badgers slowly colonise and are infected themselves. There is good scientific research available to show culling badgers can make things worse not better.”

Plans for the cull, due to have taken place this year, were postponed until 2013 after more badgers than anticipated were found in two areas selected for pilot trials, in Gloucestershire and Somerset.

New Year’s Day Police Dog Dies

Beloved Police Dog Passes Away On New Year’s Day

A Beloved Police Dog has passed away just 12 days into his retirement, leaving his partner of 7 years heartbroken.  ‘Hondo‘, a beautiful German Shepherd who worked with Vancouver Police Constable Sandra Glendinning, passed away on Tuesday afternoon.

VANCOUVER, BC.: Jan. 2, 2013 – Vancouver Police Service Dog Hondo died Jan. 1. He was the partner of Const. Sandra Glendinning, who blogged about policing on behindtheblueline.ca, for eight years and had retired just over a week earlier. - Submitted Photo: Sandra Glendinning/Behind the Blue Line  (for story by Jennifer Saltman)

VANCOUVER, BC.: Jan. 2, 2013 – Vancouver Police Service Dog Hondo died Jan. 1. He was the partner of Const. Sandra Glendinning, who blogged about policing on behindtheblueline.ca, for eight years and had retired just over a week earlier. – Submitted Photo: Sandra Glendinning/Behind the Blue Line  (for story by Jennifer Saltman)

Hondo‘ had his share of health problems, but they never slowed him down much and he always came back to work ready to serve.  

In 2010 he had a near fatal immune disease and he had surgery in November to remove his spleen.  The spleen had a cancerous tumour and the vet warned that when the cancer came back it would be aggressive, but Glendinning didn’t expect it this soon after he retired.

Hondo’s getting on, and it’s time for him to enjoy a very well-deserved retirement. He’s ready to crash out on the big fluffy dog bed in front of our fireplace, and to being self-assigned the job of keeping starlings off the bird feeders in our back yard,” she wrote in her blog recently.  

On Monday they went for a walk together and Hondo was his usual enthusiastic self.

But on Tuesday that changed she wrote, “Hondo was propped on his forelegs, labouring for breath. It was clear he had suffered a catastrophic setback — he made a soft cry with every breath. It was time.  My dear, sweet dog, my faithful partner since 2005 was leaving me.”  

Police Dogs and their handlers grow very close as they both live and work together and trust each other with their lives every day, so for Glendinning it is like losing a member of her family.

Hondo was a treasured member of the department who loved to chase bad guys and track scents, and will remembered for his devotion both to his job and his partner.

Couple Arrested For Animal Cruelty and Child Abuse

Couple Jeff O’Neil and Jennifer Kovacs Arrested For 300 Counts of Animal Cruelty and Child Abuse.

OLDSMAR, Florida USA  – A woman who shared her home with 300 Animals, which the Tampa Bay SPCA took away Sunday 6th January 2013, is reacting to the incident.

Joyce Kovacs said she is glad the Animals are gone.

They belonged to her daughter, Jennifer, and her daughter’s boyfriend, Jeffrey O’Neil, who lived with Joyce.

Jeff O’Neil and Jennifer Kovacs were arrested for Child Abuse and Animal Cruelty.

“I’m kind of devastated, you know. I guess I feel bad for Jennifer and Jeff that they’re sitting in jail, and yet they brought this all on themselves,” said Joyce.

Animals — including snakes, lizards, and rats — were taken from the home along the 200 block of Lee Street after deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call there about a missing infant.

Joyce said it was the couple’s daughter, who a relative had come and taken away. According to deputies, a family member came to the house, saw the Child was Crying, but couldn’t wake O’Neil. The relative left a note, which Jennifer and O’Neil didn’t see.

That’s when deputies saw all the Animals being held in 88 Cages. They described the home as being in ” Deplorable Conditions.”.

Some Animals were even found ‘Dead’ and ‘Half Eaten by the Other Animals’.

According to Deputies, they were being Bred and Sold without the Proper Licensing and Conditions.

The SPCA Tampa Bay was called and they took all of the 300 Animals.

Joyce said her daughter and O’Neil sold some of the Animals at flea markets or over the Internet, but the breeding got out of control. She added it’s been that way for the past year.

She said she told Jennifer and O’Neil they would have to leave the house soon, just recently. Joyce said she put up with it for so long for the sake of her granddaughter, because the couple had nowhere else to go.

All of the Animals are in the care of Tampa Bay SPCA now.

According to the organisation, they will try to get the owners to sign the Animals over to them. If not, the SPCA will have to file for custody.

Brian May: Me and My Animal Passions

He is one the World’s Best Guitarists

He’s written some of the most memorable rock anthems of all time, and his band ‘Queen’ is a Global Phenomenon. But it’s not music he wants to be remembered for his Animal Welfare Work – Saving Badgers and Foxes.

showbiz-brian-may-team-badger-campaign-launch

Brian May: ‘The day the first shot is fired against the Badgers, I will never drink another drop of milk unless I know it’s come from a humane farm.’

When Queen performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympics – Freddie Mercury, towering over the crowd in canary-yellow jacket, leading a call-and-response from beyond the grave, Brian May, crowned in his wonky halo of grey curls, squalling his way through the guitar solo from Brighton Rock, and drummer Roger Taylor, with guest Jessie J, thundering into a rendition of We Will Rock You – they did what they always managed to do so spectacularly live: unite a stadium in belting out an anthem.

Brian May, guitarist of the British rock band Queen, performs during the Closing Ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012, in London.

Brian May, Guitarist and Roger Taylor, Drummer of the British Rock Band ‘Queen’, performs during the Closing Ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Sunday, 12th August 2012, in London.

They – well May – also managed to do something new: infuriate a significant percentage of the populace. The trouble was his outfit: a characteristic combination of dark trousers, trainers and long frock coat, except from one sleeve peered the head of a fox; from the other, the black and white snout of a badger.

“He’s politicising the Olympics!” came the cry, from those who made the connection between his attire and his campaign against the government’s then imminent approval of pilot badger culls in Gloucester and Somerset.

“To the farmers struggling against bovine TB and Fox predation,” harrumphed the Countryside Alliance, “a millionaire rock star using a global sporting celebration to undermine their way of life really stuck in the craw.”

A spokesperson for Brian May said his jacket was in keeping with Danny Boyle’s Isles of Wonder theme, including, as it did, a hedgehog, a buzzard, two herons and an adder, “most of which are protected or in decline” – which was plausible, up to a point.

Director Danny Boyle was the mastermind behind the London Olympic 2012 Opening and Closing Ceremony's

For it is true that Brian May is on a mission.

“All the available scientific evidence points to the fact that the cull probably will not work,” he says now, sitting in a hotel bar in Kensington.”

“It will not save a single cow. It might do, but it’s a huge unknown – a huge extrapolation, and extrapolation of scientific evidence is a very dangerous game.”

His voice is soft, languid in the way of someone accustomed to being listened to.

“If you talk to any expert on cows and bovine TB in Britain, bar a couple who work for Defra [Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs], you will get the same answer, including from Lord Krebs.”

Krebs led the only major scientific trial of culling, a £50m study known as the randomised Badger Culling or Krebs trial, which culled 11,000 Badgers over Five Years and found that if certain conditions were met, culling could reduce disease incidence by an average of just 16% over nine years.

“Krebs said Culling is a crazy idea, we should not be doing it, we should be vaccinating,” adds May. “So I’m not a lone voice. I’m not a renegade hippy.”

On Friday afternoon, a petition he has launched with Team Badger, a coalition of various Animal Rights Groups, had more than 134,000 signatures, well in excess of the 100,000 required to get a debate considered in parliament.

(The coalition includes Brian May’s own anti-animal cruelty organisation, established when he realised, in 2010, that David Cameron would try to repeal the anti-hunting act. It is called, with the unapologetic sentimentality that imbues the songs he wrote for Queen, Save Me, and marked the end of his life-long support for the Tory party.)

British Prime Minister David Cameron will try to Repeal the Anti-Hunting Act

May is working on the campaign around the clock, talking to scientists, emailing activists, doing interviews, updating his website.

“It’s threatening my life, it’s utterly consuming my life. It makes it difficult to continue a proper family life, it makes it difficult to continue music, to continue astronomy, to continue my stereoscopic adventures.”

May is, famously, unusual in the rock firmament in that he possesses a PhD in astronomy, and has written books about it (the most recent, The Cosmic Tourist, written with Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott, will be published next month) and another obsession, stereoscopy.

“So I suppose I solve the problem by not sleeping very much.” He says his friends, largely, support his campaign, but that his wife, Anita Dobson – though helping with the petition, “has at times made me question whether I should be spending this much time on it”.

As we talk, his eye is suddenly caught by a scene behind us, and his voice hardens. “Sorry, excuse me, are you having trouble, Anne?” Anne is Anne Brummer, of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue Centre in Surrey, who has rescued thousands of Animals over the past 25 years and has released many of them on to his land. A waiter has been trying to explain to Anne that the bar is not yet open. “Who says? Can we talk to your manager please?” The gentle tone is suddenly gone; in its place is the full force of rock star high-handedness.

Ann Brummer goes out on most of the rescues herself and also carries out educational work

He turns back to me. “Sorry, I hate people who say things can’t be done.” His tone is avuncular again, expansive. “It must be in my upbringing.” In what way? “Well, my parents thought we were middle class” 

Brian’s father, when May was a teenager helped him build the guitar he still uses out of motorbike valve springs, a mahogany fireplace, a bike saddle, and mother-of-pearl buttons from his mother’s button box, was an electronics draughtsman in the civil service –

“but we were very poor. They had a pride in doing things well. Life is too short for people who don’t want to do their job well.”

Speaking of jobs, it’s understandable, isn’t it, if farmers feel that it is all very well for someone in a comfortable position …

“I’m not in a comfortable position,” interjects May. “This is killing me!”

I look for a trace of irony, but it doesn’t appear to be there.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah. Rock stars shouldn’t have anything to say about farming. Well, sorry, it’s time to wake up. Farming, like every other industry, including mine, has to be open to change or it dies. … [And] if the price of my glass of milk on the table, or my cheese is the death of possibly hundreds of thousands of badgers, I don’t want it. I like me milk, I like me cheese, but the day the first shot is fired by the government against the badgers, I will never drink another drop of milk unless I know it’s come from a humane farm.”

Cow, Milk, Cheese and Farmer

Cow, Milk, Cheese  and Farmer

But that, as even some Anti-Cull Activists admit, is just punishing farmers further.

“No, it’s not. It’s giving people the right to choose who to support.”

What is it about him and animals, exactly? Where does this passion come from?

“It’s a childhood thing, but it’s been reinforced by the life I’ve led. I’m an astronomer.”

Even when he was touring the world with Queen, May kept up with the academic journals. He has an asteroid named after him, has spent months chasing eclipses from Mexico to Outer Mongolia, and periodically appears on the Sky at Night with his friend Patrick Moore.

“For a thousand years the Ptolemaic system was believed all round the world. The system says that the Earth is at the centre of the universe. It turns out not to be true. But this idea that we are the centre of creation lingers on – where is the justification to say we are the central piece of evolution? There is nothing to tell us that whatsoever. So why would we use that to justify our exceedingly bad behaviour?”

In fact, he said, a couple of years ago, that he would rather be remembered for his animal rights work than for music or astronomy. Really? “Yep. I won’t be remembered in 1,000 years anyway, but I would like to leave this planet knowing that I did what I could to make it a better place, a more decent place, a more compassionate place.”

Having said which, he doesn’t seem to find this campaigning lark that fulfilling.

“People say: ‘Are you enjoying it?’ No. I love my music, I love my art. And I’m quite good at it.”

Rolling Stone last year ranked him as 26th of the 100 best guitarists of all time.

“So really I should be making music – I have to have time – because if I lose music from my life, I lose my self.”

He is about to embark on a short tour with Kelly Ellis, accompanying her on acoustic guitar and performing by candlelight.

“It’s almost like a reaction to the music that made Queen famous, though if you look at it some of it’s very simple. We Will Rock You is very simple. Millionaire Waltz is highly complex.”

It is perhaps instructive – or maybe not – that May wrote We Will Rock You, while Freddie Mercury wrote The Millionaire Waltz: for all his obvious intelligence, there is something of the emotional bludgeon about May and his lyrics: they are obviously wildly effective – in 2006, Queen’s Greatest Hits became the best-selling album ever – but relatively uncomplicated (unlike his guitar solos): We Will Rock You. The Show Must Go On. I Want It All.

Musically, he and Freddie Mercury dovetailed brilliantly, but did he ever feel overshadowed and resentful of his flamboyantly gifted frontman? “No, we actually pushed him forward. It was me who designed that first cover and put him on [it]. That was my vision of what Queen’s image would be. Because Freddie was born to it. Though he was very democratic. People often said, in interviews, ‘This is your band’ – and he’d say, ‘Don’t be stupid, darling.'” May’s voice alters subtly, suddenly there’s another person in the room.

“This is a band.”

Queen's Freddie Mercury

Queen’s Freddie Mercury

What was it like, performing with Mercury again, albeit in the form of a hologram?

“It was nice. I mean, Freddie’s with us the whole time, really. Freddie’s spirit is very strong and we spent so much of our lives together, I can’t imagine a day where I wouldn’t refer to him in some way. I’m very comfortable with that now. I wasn’t in the beginning.”

In fact, he was so grief-stricken by the loss of his friend and colleague, which came at about the same time as the breakup of his first marriage and the death of his father, that he slipped into a severe depression.

“It was quite a long grieving process, but I’m comfortable with it now. He lived life to the full, he created magnificently, from his soul. He was fearless.”

During another period of depression, a suicidal episode, May went to a clinic in Arizona. “They said, ‘What is your religion, what is your spirituality?’ I said: ‘I’m not sure.’ And they said: ‘Well, we need your spirituality to be a centre for your recovery. And I kind of floundered around for a while and in the end it was looking at the stars that gave that feeling back to me.

“There’s a great thing called The Serenity Prayer,” he says. “It’s taught in all kinds of clinics – it starts off with the word God, but you can say Higher Power – ‘God, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'”

He delivers the homily as if it is not cross-stitched and stuck up on wall after wall throughout the world. “To me that’s incredibly empowering and very often if I get to a sort of trough, that’s what I look at. It focuses you on the things which you can change.” And he stands up to his full 6ft 2in, plus a good five inches or so of hair, and wanders off to be photographed. From the lapel of his frock coat, a badger winks.

Chris Packham Slams ‘Puerile’ Abuse of Animals on I’m a Celebrity

Bushtucker Trials are a ‘Farce’ because ‘Venomous’ Creatures are Disabled to Protect Celebrities.

Chris Packham

NATURALIST Chris Packham has attacked the ITV reality show I’m a Celebrity for its “out-dated and puerile abuse of animals”.

The Springwatch star slammed the show’s so-called ‘Bushtucker trials’, in which a hapless Z-list celebrity is chosen to perform a task – generally involving close contact with slimy, venomous or toothy animals – in return for food.

Packham called the trials a “Pathetic Farce”, noting that none of the Celebrities is ever in any danger:

“The Tiny Crocodiles have their mouths gagged, the spiders have their fangs covered or removed, the snakes are non-venomous and the whole area has been drenched in insecticide so the poor things don’t get too pestered by biting insects.”

Packham has spent his career on TV shows that celebrate wildlife. His no-nonsense views on conservation – such as his belief that pandas should be allowed to go extinct because the money could be better spent elsewhere – have won him as much respect as his refusal to dumb down the science in his programmes.

Packham said he “dreads this time of year” because of I’m a Celebrity. His own live Springwatch and Autumnwatch shows on the BBC could be described as a rather more staid form of reality TV. But Packham says it isn’t I‘m a Celebrity‘s format he minds: just the show’s “Idiotic, Out-Dated and Puerile Abuse of Animals”.

i-m-a-celebrity-2011-ant-and-dec-pic-itv-53073838

Anthony McPartlin & Declan Donnelly better known as Ant & Dec Present I’m a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here

Referring to his own TV shows, he says: “We don’t just go for the cute and cuddly, we champion the ugly and unpopular too and I work really hard to win new audiences over to the wonder and real value of nature.”

In contrast, Packham believes I’m a Celebrity promotes “medieval-style exploitation”. He asks: “Why not flog, birch, tar and feather or hang, draw and quarter the contestants as well?

“After all, these practices date from the same periods when animal baiting was popular entertainment.”·

Justin Bieber Accused Of Animal Cruelty

Justin Bieber is being Accused of Animal Cruelty after Presenting a Screaming Fan with His Pet Hamster.

The Cruel and Irresponsible Behaviour by Bieber took place after the singer’s performance at the Atlanta, USA Jingle Ball show last month.

If he genuinely cared for the Pet Hamster, why did he have it with him at a concert? And why would someone who cared about Animals subject them to such a loud, chaotic, terrifying experience. In short NO ONE would who really cared about Animals would.

Bieber is a Bloody Discrace, a spoilt brat, who obviously thinks he can do what he wants and is above any legal obligation or moral responsibility. What example is he giving out to young girls, he is certainly no role model, what he subjected tiny poor hamster too, you can see below:

Bieber’s Hamster, known as PAC, has since been photographed in his new home in Alabama, apparently looking happy and well with a girl called Tori.

Tori With Justin Biebers Hamster Called PAC

Justin Bieber’s former, so called ‘Pet Hamster’, which he gave away, is now living in with its new owner, who has said she will treat the Tiny Hamster like a rodent king!!!!!!

Bieber unloaded the Hamster, named PAC, in a cage,  on to a crowd of historical screaming girls. It was among this chaos the unsuspecting screaming fan Tori managed to grab the cage in which the terrified Hamster was in.

Tori who is said to have been one of many Bieber fans, said she was shocked when Bieber randomly offered to the group of girls, the cage, but is excited about looking after the tiny Hamster and assures people he’s in good hands.

Tori says both she and PAC are living happily together at her home in Alabama and she plans on keeping her new furry friend as long as Bieber says it’s cool.

California Hamster Association

But the Californian Hamster Association is less than impressed.

Californian Hamster Association have said Hamsters are delicate creatures that “often succumb quickly to illness and death”, especially when faced with “sudden environmental change”.

It ominously added: “The moment that Hamster was handed off to a screaming girl in a harsh, frenzied environment was likely the moment it gazed at the short path to its doom.”

Justin Bieber issued a DEATH SENTENCE to his Pet Hamster PAC when he gave it away to a screaming fan outside of a concert last month.

This according to the California Hamster Association.

A representative for the group, Californian Hamster Association stated Bieber committed an act of “Animal Cruelty” when he gifted away the Hamster, even if his intentions were good.

Californian Hamster Association says, Hamsters are fragile creatures that “Often Succumb Quickly To Illness and Death, especially when faced with a ……..”Sudden Environmental Change.”

In short … “The moment the Hamster was handed off to a Screaming Girl in a Harsh, Frenzied Environment was likely the moment it gazed at the short path to its doom.”

DOOM!!!!!!

So what should Bieber have done instead? The Californian Hamster Association says, if Beiber no longer wanted the Hamster, he should have left it in the care of an Animal Shelter or Rescue Centre … so they could have handed it off to a responsible, new owner in a Safer Manner.

As for PAC, he’s currently alive and well in the care of Bieber’s fan Tori … who has vowed to treat the animal like a tiny rodent god.

So far, there has been no comment from Bieber.

Humane Program Working With Juvenile Detention Centre To Stop Animal Cruelty

Humane Program Working With Juvenile Detention Centre To Stop Animal Cruelty

Humane Program Working With Juvenile Detention Centre To Stop Animal Cruelty

The Humane Society of Huron Valley is reaching out to at-risk youth to educate them about the proper care of animals and hopefully stop the cycle of Animal Cruelty.

The Humane Society was able to start the program in October thanks to a $44,000 grant from the James A. and Faith Knight Foundation.

The Humane Society of Huron Valley investigates approximately 500 reports of Animal Cruelty each year.

“It is well documented that early Abusers of Animals often go on to engage in Violence and other Antisocial acts,” said Karen Patterson, director of Humane Education.

The Humane Society is hoping to help break the cycle of animal abuse by reaching out to at-risk youth.

Every Sunday Karen Patterson and Alex Ball go to the Washtenaw County Juvenile Detention Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They teach the kids there how to Care for Pets and give them an opportunity to interact with one of the Shelter Dogs.

The Program covers topics on Pet Safety, Animal Communication, Caring for Pets at Home, showing Respect and Compassion for Animals and Dog Cruelty.

The Humane Society hopes the program will benefit the troubled youth. “Our goals are to educate, and we want to rehabilitate too,” said Ball.

“We want to show we have Animals here that are always Compassionate. They Don’t Judge, They Don’t see Jumpsuits, and they Want to be loved.”

The kids at the centre love the program. “It’s a nice treat for them,” said Youth Counselor Kevin Lockhart.

The kids have been learning a lot from the program and have enjoyed having the Dogs around.

“It just gives you that warm, cuddly, comforting feeling that you can’t get from a human,” said 14-year-old Unique. “Dogs just have it, they just have that demeanor about them. It helps.”

Farm Reveals Shocking, Malicious Cruelty To Calves and Cows

At An Ohio, USA, Dairy Farm  Shocking, Malicious Cruelty To Calves and Cows Revealed By Hidden Cameras.

The Video was  secretly shot by an investigator with Mercy For Animals Reavled the Shocking, Malicious Cruelty To Calves and Cows.

The video, recorded between April and May, 2010, shows dairy farm workers:

  • Beating Cows in the Face with Crowbars
  • Stabbing Defenseless Cows them with Pitchforks,
  • Breaking Cows Tails, and
  • Punching, Throwing, and Kicking Calves.

On September 24, 2010, Billy Joe Gregg, Jr., a worker at Conklin Dairy Farms caught on hidden camera during a Mercy For Animals investigation Maliciously Abusing Cows and Calves, pleaded guilty to six misdemeanor counts of Cruelty to Animals.

Gregg was sentenced to eight months in jail, ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, and is barred from contact with animals for three years. Gregg must also receive counseling through a program that specialises in treating individuals involved in animal abuse cases.

Gregg’s arrest and conviction stem from chilling undercover footage recorded during a Mercy For Animals investigation earlier this year at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio.

During a four-week investigation in April and May, MFA’s investigator documented farm workers:

  • Violently Punching Young Calves in the Face, Body Slamming them to the ground, and pulling and throwing them by their ears
  • Routinely using Pitchforks to Stab Cows in the Face, Legs and Stomach
  • Kicking “downed” Cows (those too injured to stand) in the Face and Neck – Abuse Carried out and encouraged by the farm’s owner
  • Maliciously Beating Restrained Cows in the Face with Crowbars – some attacks involving over 40 blows to the head
  • Twisting cows’ Tails until the bones snapped
  • Punching Cows’ Udders
  • Bragging about Stabbing, Dragging, Shooting, Breaking Bones, and Beating Cows and Calves to Death

After viewing the footage, Dr. Bernard Rollin, Distinguished Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University, stated: “”This is probably the most gratuitous, sustained, sadistic animal abuse I have ever seen. The video depicts calculated, deliberate cruelty, based not on momentary rage but on taking pleasure through causing pain to cows and calves who are defenseless.””

Sadly, cruelty to farmed animals in Ohio – no matter how egregious – is classified as a mere misdemeanor. Ohio has some of the weakest animal protection laws in the nation – ranking 43rd out of all 50 states. Further, no federal laws provide protection for farmed animals during their lives on the farm. Such inadequate state laws and the absence of federal laws lead to rampant abuse.

The deplorable conditions uncovered at Conklin Dairy Farms further highlight the reality that animal agriculture cannot be trusted to self-regulate and that meaningful federal and state law must be implemented and strengthened to prevent egregious cruelty to farmed animals.

“Gregg’s punishment is a slap on the wrist compared to the unimaginable suffering endured by the animals who were victims of his malicious abuse,” says MFA’s Executive Director, Nathan Runkle. “”It’s an outrage that in Ohio it’s a mere misdemeanor to sadistically punch, beat and stab farmed animals, break their bones and otherwise torture them. This case should serve as a wake-up call to all compassionate citizens that Ohio must do more to strengthen its animal cruelty laws.””

Although many of the abuses documented at Conklin Dairy Farms are expressions of Gregg’s sadistic pathology, numerous MFA undercover investigations at dairy farmspig farmsegg farmshatcheries and slaughterhouses have revealed that violence and abuse to farmed animals – whether malicious or institutionalized – run rampant nationwide.

Compassionate consumers can end their direct financial support of farmed animal abuse by rejecting dairy, and other animal products, and adopting a vegan diet.

Theo The Hero Dog, Given The Top Bravery Award, For Saving Soldiers,

Deceased Theo, Was A Bomb-Sniffing Springer Spaniel, Has Now, Been Awarded, The Top Prize For Animal Bravery, The Animal Victoria Cross.

Theo, a bomb-sniffing springer spaniel, has been awarded the top prize for animal bravery.  He was given the animal Victoria cross for saving soldiers' lives in Afghanistan where he worked with his handler to detect roadside bombs.

He was given the animal Victoria cross for saving soldiers’ lives in Afghanistan where he worked with his handler to detect roadside bombs.

He was given the Animal Victoria Cross for saving soldiers’ lives in Afghanistan where he worked with his handler to detect roadside bombs.

Sadly Theo and his handler Lance Corporal Liam Tasker died while on patrol in the country in 2011.

The Medal was accepted by Sergeant Matthew Jones and search Dog Grace, who served with Theo and his handler Lance Corporal Tasker.

Since 1943 the Dickin Medal has been awarded to animals serving with the military, police or rescue services for acts of bravery.

Pigeons, horses and cats have all been awarded the medal in the past.

British military Dog, Theo Gets Posthumous Medal

Theo, a springer spaniel, died from an undiagnosed seizure hours after his handler Lance Corporal Tasker was killed on March 1, 2011 in a firefight.

The British Military Dog called Theo Died in Afghanistan has been awarded the highest bravery award for any Animal for finding hidden weapons and improvised explosive devices planted by the Taliban.

Theo, a Springer Spaniel, Died from an Undiagnosed Seizure Hours After his handler Lance Corporal Tasker was killed on March 1, 2011 in a firefight.

Theo worked for five months in Afghanistan with Royal Army Veterinary Corps, searching out roadside bombs.

Theo has now been recognised with the Dickin Medal by the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA).

It is the highest award any animal can receive and is given for gallantry or devotion to duty in military conflict.

The PDSA Dickin medal recognises that in finding IEDs and bomb-making equipment, Theo prevented soldiers and civilians from being killed or wounded.

Tasker’s mother, Jane Duffy, said she was “so, so proud” of the award given to Theo.

“It’s like they were a team. “

“One couldn’t have worked without the other out there, doing the job they were doing.”

Theo still holds the record for the most operational finds made by an arms and explosives search Dog in Afghanistan, with 14, the BBC reported.

Theo is the 64th Animal to receive the PDSA Dickin Medal.

Other recipients include 27 Other Dogs, 32 pigeons, three horses and a cat.

Bomb-sniffing military dog honored with Britain’s highest animal bravery award

It’s never too late to say, “Thank you, for saving our lives,” and today in London a gathering of British soldiers and military dogs honored a fallen hero named Theo, a Springer Spaniel who died the same day his soldier partner was killed in Afghanistan.

The soldier and his canine partner lived together, served together and died together.

From London’s AP:

British soldiers and military dogs gathered at a London army barracks Thursday to honor a fallen hero with selfless courage, nerves of steel — and four legs.

Theo, a bomb-sniffing Springer Spaniel who died in Afghanistan on the day his soldier partner was killed, was posthumously honored with the Dickin Medal, Britain’s highest award for bravery by animals.

Theo worked alongside Lance Cpl. Liam Tasker, searching for roadside bombs in Helmand province, a Taliban stronghold.

Tasker, 26, died in a firefight with insurgents in March 2011, and Theo suffered a fatal seizure hours later. Tasker’s mother, Jane Duffy, says the pair were inseparable. She’s convinced Theo died of a broken heart.

“They’ll be watching us, and they’ll be so proud,” she said. “I just wish they were here to get it themselves.”

During their tour together, the successful soldier and dog team uncovered over a dozen bombs intended to kill British soldiers. Tasker, a Sagittarian, was reportedly an excellent dog handler and trainer and the dogs he worked with were exceptionally responsive to him.

ABC World News reported in March, 2011:

Tasker and Theo had worked together uncovering roadside bombs in Afghanistan and were remarkably successful, finding 14 bombs meant to kill and maim British soldiers.

They had more operational finds than any other individual team in Afghanistan to date, the Ministry of Defense said.

They were featured in a video released by the Army before Tasker’s death, showing a perky Theo on patrol with his handler.

The two were so good at what they were doing that their tour of duty had been extended by a month.

Theo, 22 months old and on his first tour of duty, was with Tasker when he was felled by a sniper’s bullet during a firefight and died.

Watch the video to see this heroic team in action. These animals serve us the same way they love us…unconditionally.

Other animal heroes

Dogs are not the only animals used in the military and honored with awards for service and heroism. Over the years, there have been pigeons, horses and one rat-killing cat bestowed with bravery and service awards.

While these animals may not consciously understand their valuable roles during these dangerous missions, something in them must sense the importance of their life-saving tasks, as they seem to perform them with incredible courage, determination and flawless skills.

Perhaps it’s just simple, unconditional love in action.

The Dog in Chinese Astrology

Dog people possess the best traits of human nature, just like their animal counterpart. They have a deep sense of loyalty, they’re honest, and inspire other people’s confidence because they know how to keep secrets.

Dog people care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. Dog people make good leaders.

Occupying the 11th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dog symbolizes character traits such as loyalty, compatibility and kindness.

Dogs frequently offer kind words and useful advice, always listening and lending a shoulder when necessary. Dogs often become deeply involved in others’ lives and are sometimes perceived as nosy. Ensuring others are happy is more important to the Dog than wealth, money or success.

Dogs are determined individuals; always wanting to master a new subject before moving on and always finishing what they start. Dogs value friendships; they’re loyal, honest, trustworthy and reliable and have strong morals and ethics.

People born during the following years are considered Dogs in Chinese Astrology: 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006.

Lance Corporal Liam Tasker and Theo, thank you…may you rest in peace after having lived and served with such courage.

Sadistic Woman Violently Beats Puppy

California Woman Arrested Following Violent Attack On A Puppy

On Wednesday, a OakhurstMadera County, California, USA woman called ‘Janice Aguilar‘  was arrested by Police and placed behind bars for Repeatedly Beating and Slamming on the Ground a Young Labrador Puppy.

California Woman Janice Aguilar Violently Beats Puppy

Sadistic Janice Aguilar Violently Beats and Slams Puppy To The Ground

The Oakhurst woman was behind bars on Wednesday night after Authorities said “she Beat a Puppy So Badly That Even Veteran Law Enforcement Officials Were Shocked”. 

According to witnesses, they claimed to have observed 39-year-old Janice Aguilar Beating a Puppy and Repeatedly Slamming its Small Body Into The Ground.

Following the beating, Aguilar was seen flagging down a car and leaving with the injured puppy, Madera County sheriff‘s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said.

According to the Police report, the driver of the vehicle attempted to take Aguilar to two different veterinary clinics in order for the puppy to be treated, but the Aguilar refused and asked to be dropped at a park instead.

Deputies were called by Aguilar’s neighbors in the Sierra Nevada foothills town of Oakhurst around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday when they saw her beating the puppy and banging it on the ground, Stuart said, 

Following the Sustained Beating before Deputies arrived Aguilar had already put the Injured Puppy described by Stuart as “Crying in Pain” into her backpack and flagged down a passing car. This had been according to witnesses who saw Aguilar Stuff The Puppy That Was Still Alive But Terrible Pain and Grievously Injured Puppy Into A Backpack.

The driver of the car drove Aguilar and the dog to the offices of two separate veterinarians, but according to Stuart, Aguilar refused to bring the puppy into either office for treatment. And, according to Stuart, after the second stop Aguilar asked to be dropped off at nearby park, got out of the car and walked away.

“The sick part of this, the witness could hear the dog whimpering, and assumed the woman wanted go to a vet,” Stuart said.

“Instead she got dropped off near a park,” Stuart said.

The Puppy, believed to be a Labrador mix only between 8 and 11 weeks old, was found by another witness who saw the Severe Pain the Puppy was in and thought it was beyond help and felt the only thing to do was to put the Poor Puppy out of its Terrible Pain and Misery, Madera County sheriff’s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said. 

I have dealt with Animal Neglect, but I have never Dealt with such an Extreme Case of Cruelty to an Animal,” Stuart said.

Aguilar, who told Deputies that the Puppy was attacked by a Pit Bull, was booked into Madera County Jail late Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of Animal Cruelty and Death.

Bail information, if any, and a Court Appearance Date was not available on Wednesday evening.

Witnesses have stated that the Puppy Was Still Crying In Pain.
