Aye, very uplifting Vinnie. Professor Paws kin send oot a message tae the rest of China on how tae care for animals.
spreads like wildFYRE.
AS I MENTIONED ABOUT TAIWAN,THEY TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF THEIR PETS.
CHINA COULD TAKE A LESSON IF THEY DIDN'T HATE THE TAIWANESE SO MUCH.
IN ANY CASE PEOPLE I HAVE MET FROM CHINA SAY THINGS ARE CHANGING.
I HOPE THIS TREND CONTINUES AS THE CHINESE CRAWL OUT FROM UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THEIR GOVERNED MENTALITY,AND LET THE LOVE OF ANIMALS IN.
THEY WILL NEVER REGRET IT,FOR AS WE ALL KNOW HOW MUCH ANIMALS,ESPECIALLY OUR PETS ENRICH OUR LIVES.
THANKS VINNIE,VERY GOOD NEWS.
"PROFESSOR PAWS",IAIN ,~ASAIN ACCENT~ YOU SO CHOW FUNNY !!!
HUGGLES TO ALL FRUDDIES,HOOFIES AND OF COURSE MY FAVORITE KOLAS.
Dear Vinnie,Great News for JaguarsShare this on Facebook.
Just minutes ago the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formally proposed to protect 838,232 acres as "critical habitat" for endangered jaguars in southern Arizona and New Mexico -- an area larger than the state of Rhode Island.
When finalized in the next year, and joined with a developing federal recovery plan, the decision will ensure jaguars return to the wild mountains and deserts of the American Southwest.
The decision has been a long time coming. The agency listed the jaguar as an endangered species in 1997 following a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity that ended protection delays stretching back to 1978. But to our astonishment, it refused to protect the jaguar's habitat or develop a recovery plan! Instead it declared that jaguars should not be recovered in the United States -- despite the fact that the beautiful cats historically ranged all the way from Monterey Bay, Calif., to Louisiana and north to the Grand Canyon and Colorado.
Refusing to allow federal bureaucrats -- for the first time in U.S. history -- to consign an endangered species to extinction in the United States, we went back to court. In 2009 we won our case: The Fish and Wildlife Service was ordered to protect the jaguar's habitat and create a plan to fully restore the species.
Like wolves and grizzly bears, jaguars were killed en masse by federal trappers and sharpshooters paid to make the West safe for heavily subsidized public-land ranching. By the 1950s jaguars were virtually extinct, but in recent years began to show the first signs of recolonizing Arizona and New Mexico. Individual animals from a Mexican population have been exploring the borderlands of the two states recently. Macho B, the last jaguar to be seen, was killed in a botched capture in 2009 -- the very year we won a court order requiring the species' protection and recovery.
Thanks to all our members who wrote letters, made phone calls, and funded our jaguar protection campaign over the past 15 years. With today's habitat protection proposal and a recovery plan on the way, the full recovery of the American jaguar is finally in sight.
Thank you again for all your support.
Center for Biological Diversity
P.S. -- Our fight to save another magnificent predator, the gray wolf, is nearing a critical moment in Wyoming, where the federal government is poised to strip its federal protection away this month, allowing nearly 200 wolves to be killed indiscriminately in 80 percent of the state. I'll send you an email about the latest developments next week.
Finally Jaguars will now be allowed and have protection in North America again, since they were Extinct here. *chearleader* Computer running real slow so can barely get anything done but I'll be back with a vengence to Sign Petitions and visit my friends groups too soon I hope. Thx. for your Confidence in me Sis. Hoofy hugs to all Fruddies from me and old Dottie, xoxoxo
Thx. Iain, that was a Slideshow truely worth watching before I go to bed with peace of mind. Thx. Hun for posting. But I would refuse to leave without my dog. I'll stay here at home with my ole pup Dottie, "Pals to the End". As old Vaudvillans, Stanley and Ollie, used to sing back in the 1920's. Or were they just in America? Look them up on the computer. They were so funny. Nighty nite, Fruddys. xoxo
on the trail of the lonesome pine! One of ma favourites and worth posting eh!
We have a box set of Laurel and Hardy films Vinnie. They are HILARIOUS!
Aye, AS YE SAY VINNIE.....PALS TAE THE END ..
Hope aw you fruddy's hud a guid weekend
Friends to the end!!!!
I like that idea.
I stopped flying commercially with my dogs when on a domestic flight they lost my dog and couldn't find him for 3 hours...longest 3 hours of my life
turns out some jerk put him in european quarantine, I was worried they might have sent him off to another country...swore never to fly commercially again , and this was before 9/11.
I'm a Marx Brothers Fan myself,although Laurel and Hardy are hilarious...
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and wonderful news...
Maybe we should add the Pe' Sla victory to this milestones thread, as it is truly a small miracle.
Hoofy,fruddy, and ndn hugs to all,you don't have to be a Native to believe in the earth and the cosmos.
