The Taku watershed is too valuable to be sacrificed!

The Taku region is the largest unroaded wild salmon watershed on the Pacific coast of North America. The wild salmon, wildlife and old growth forests of the Taku are at risk! Though more than 4000 members of the public wrote in to demand that Canadian officials not approve the Tulsequah Chief mine and road project, no final decision has been made and the Taku is still under threat. Now is the time to remind decision-makers that the public is watching and will not tolerate this mine and road project that could devastate the majestic Taku watershed and undermine the legal rights of the Taku River Tlingit First Nation. Click here http://69.90.68.232:8174/clientfiles/twa/actioncentres/taku-ceaa/takeaction.jsp to send a fax to federal cabinet representatives telling them that northwest BC’s Taku River watershed is too valuable to be sacrificed!

MARINE PARKS IGNORE PLIGHT OF WHALES AS NUMBER OF DEATHS RISES

The recent death of an orca known as "Splash" at a SeaWorld park in California, has brought the total death toll for orcas in captivity to a shocking 8 in the past year alone.

In captivity, the lives of whales and dolphins are often dramatically shortened through illness, stress, or injury. At only 15 years old, Splash was a youngster and his death highlights the huge concerns about the welfare of whales and dolphins held in marine parks around the world.

Ignoring such concerns, Loro Parque in Spain has announced it will transport 4 orcas thousands of miles from Sea World parks in the US to a new captive facility in Tenerife later this year. WDCS is campaigning against the import on the grounds that it would be illegal according to regulations surrounding the trade in endangered species.

Join our campaign and send an e-campaign card to the Spanish authorities. To send your protest now, please go to: http://uk.wdcs.org/go/NL050419captive

taken from http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/pranks/bonsai.html

Bonsai describes the ancient Japanese art of growing miniature trees by rigorous pruning of their roots and branches. Because of their small size, aesthetic appeal, and minimal upkeep requirements, Bonsai trees have long been popular additions to offices and homes.
In late 2000 a website debuted that described how to apply the same Bonsai principles to kittens. The idea was to seal the kittens inside glass containers. As they grew (fed and watered through a tube), the bones of the cats would supposedly conform to the shape of whatever container held them. At the end of the process a uniquely shaped 'Bonsai Kitten' would emerge—sure to be the envy of all.
"You no longer need be satisfied with a house pet having the same mundane shape as all other members of its species," the site declared. "With Bonsai Kitten a world of variation awaits you, limited only by your own imagination." The site also advertised that hand-grown Bonsai Kittens were available for sale to the public.
BonsaiKitten.com almost immediately generated a huge amount of controversy. Furious animal lovers insisted that it be closed down. The Humane Society of the United States denounced it, and when it discovered that the site had been created by an MIT student (or students) and was hosted on the university's servers, demanded that MIT shut it down. MIT complied and pulled the plug on the site on December 22, 2000.
But that was not the end of BonsaiKitten.com. What started was a game of 'cat and mouse,' as the site simply began relocating from one server to another. Whenever furious animal lovers discovered its new location, they would bombard its host with criticism until the weary host, buckling under the weight of the attacks, would force BonsaiKitten.com to move on and find a new home. This continued until the site finally found a permanent home on Rotten.com.
During this time the site's creators at MIT began giving interviews to the press through the fictitious persona of "Dr. Michael Wong Chang." They explained that the site was a prank designed to satirize "the human belief of nature as a commodity." But this did little to calm the animal lovers whose anger continued to grow and grow.
In February 2001 even the FBI got involved and subpoenaed all information about the site from MIT. But its investigation came up empty when it found no evidence of animal abuse or of the sale of Bonsai Kittens.
Even today, years after its creation, BonsaiKitten.com continues to generate criticism, though it has by now been thoroughly debunked as a hoax. An email petition continues to circulate around urging people to help shut down the site. This petition itself is basically a hoax, since it's not going to get the site shut down.
Many argue that the Bonsai Kitten hoax is actually too shocking, that it crosses the line of decency and promotes cruelty to animals. Of course, the line of acceptability will fall in a different place for everyone, but one should consider that the best satire is often cruel. We here at the Museum are quite certain that the MIT students were not suggesting that people actually torture kittens, just as we are quite certain that Jonathan Swift was not actually suggesting that the rich should eat the children of the poor when he wrote his famous "A Modest Proposal" in 1729.
We take the students at face value when they said that they were satirizing "the human belief of nature as a commodity." But we also think that they may have unintentionally been giving voice to the mathematical spirit that lurks in the heart of every MIT student—that spirit which strives to transform the messy chaotic world into linear, geometric precision. In this particular case, it meant transforming cute kittens into rectangular monsters.

A note From ELES i think is important
******************************************
One more important message, folks. Sorry!

Please watch this awesome documentary about circus and zoo animals narrated by James Earl Jones. (FIVE STARS!)*****:
http://www.detroitzoo.org/assets/media/AnimalLifeboat_HS.wmv

ps. Someone already contacted me about the Shriners Circus in their town as well as Royal Hanneford.

Shriners is another scam which misleads the public to believe the money is going to charity. Please read where the money really goes:
http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1316/is_v18/ai_4619904

Royal Hanneford, the last I heard, had two Asian elephants, Tina and Ina, one of which has tested positive for TB yet last year I was told by one of their own circus workers that she was still giving rides. But now today I receive an email saying they have Asian OKA and 2 African as well the two circuses are now partnered and there may be a link to Circus Getti as the owners wife’s name is Getti.

Altho a different version of Shriners had this to say just this a.m.:

” This year, the only way to see an elephant or a white tiger up close was to buy an inflatable toy version.”

However they still have ponies and smaller animals.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I am posting my original message here again. May I suggest, to those who want to help, copy and paste this entire message into a word file and save for your own personal use. The circus WILL sneak up on you. It may be 6 months from now and you may forget or lose this message. It will be good then to have it readily available if you are willing to help.

Thank you, dearly, friends, for taking the time to read this.

Original message:


Dear Friends who care,

With circus season upon us, it is important for everyone to know about the abuse and cruelty to circus animals and be prepared with what YOU can do to help. I think its fairly self explanatory as to WHY, by meeting our dearly departed Tyke. Please click here to learn the legacy of Tyke:
http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=524&pst=9553&archival=1

Or just watch the original news footage that was broadcast live worldwide on Tyke:
http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/Prefs.asp?video=circuselephants

Tuberculosis is very real and dangerous threat to children who take elephant rides. Read about the risks of TB to humans who attend circuses:
http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol4no2/michalak.htm
(If elephants are coming with the circus, it is possible to arrange for your local Health inspector to be there and check for risks of TB to attendees.)


(More dirt on individual circuses and what YOU can to below – PLEASE READ

Circuses have learned that if given time, people like me and you will stop them from coming to your town. This is why they fiendishly sneak up on you with no notice and sometimes change their names from town to town to evade bad reputations. This is why it is important to BE PREPARED. They creep into our school systems by soliciting tickets through the education boards, yet most of these school boards ignore their own policies of NO ADVERTISING for PROFIT and NO SOLICITING in the schools. This often times needs to be pointed out to the schools AND the sponsors by caring individuals in the community, like yourself.

Spearheading an unannounced investigation:
If you reside in the United States, and want to help, it is vitally important to contact your USDA’s AHPIS (Animal Health and Plant Inspection Service) Veterinary inspector for your local region – before the circus arrives if possible, but if not, filing a complaint afterward helps too.

To get the contact name and info for YOUR Regional APHIS inspector (a federal DVM), please call this number: 970-494-7478
Tell them what town and state you are in and they will give you contact info.

BEFORE the circus arrives: Ask your APHIS inspector to BE THERE while the circus is there and do an unannounced inspection. (Its good to get chummy with your inspector, if possible – taking them out to lunch to discuss it works wonders

AFTER the circus leaves: File a formal complaint. If you make observations yourself, you have grounds for a written complaint. (fax to 970-494-7461) and insist on follow up. This will FORCE an unannounced USDA APHIS inspection at one of the next stops for that circus.

If you are able to get the inspector there before the circus, it would also be helpful to get your local Animal Control to work with APHIS documenting Animal Welfare violations.

This leaves a trail of documented inspections and forces the USDA/APHIS to do their job and inspect and document violations, which they have been quite negligent on for most of history.

 May 01, 2005 7:29 PM

Newspaper articles and letters to the editor:
You can call your local newsroom and ask a reporter to do a story. Give them all the info you can find about animal abuse, fraud and other violations. OR you can write a letter to the editor yourself. Good example of a letter to the editor (Scroll down to last letter):
http://www.centredaily.com/mld/centredaily/news/opinion/11350852.htm

Protesting:
If you have the largest circus, Ringling Bros. Barnam & Bailey (RBB or the second largest, Carson and Barnes (C& circus (in the U coming to your town, a protest would be helpful, provided you are prepared, with a large group of people and in a rather large city where the media could be there. Otherwise, your voice and observations behind the scenes will be far more helpful in the long run.

Posters and Tickets:
If you have the time (or if you know some highschool kids or others to help) it is always helpful to go around town and take down posters and take tickets off counters. This is also a way to educate your community by talking with the business owners about what they are supporting when hanging posters or giving out tickets. Some of the smaller, scamming circuses change their names from town to town and will go so far as to just tape a black and white print out of the name, location and time of performances over old info. See an example (use password “jennie”):
http://dingo.care2.com/pictures/c2c/galleries/cache/derivative/2/3/2336773.jpg
This is something else, that often times, needs to be pointed out to business owners by people like yourself.

Going in undercover:
Another good thing to do is try to get video of mistreatment or photos of evidence of abrasions, lesions or neurotic behavior of the animals. This can be difficult, however, because the circuses know we are trying to catch them on video tape and usually don’t allow video camera or cameras of any kind around the animals. (You didn’t hear this from me, but they have those tiny hidden spy cams for like $20 now that can be planted on the persona). If you get usable footage, you will become famous OR stay completely anonymous – its all up to you! Keep in mind the circus people put their best face forward when spectators are about and the layman can easily be fooled into thinking “the animals are treated great.”

The biggest scam this year and last is the Bailey Bro’s circus (rip off of Ringling) who got in trouble last yr in Anchorage for using Coca Cola’s name as a sponsor and for being observed abusing the elephant Queenie aka Baby Ruth. The next town, they called themselves Wallace and Rogers’ Brothers where they were caught using Verizon, Microsoft and McDonalds names fraudulently on tickets. This year they call themselves the Great Circus of China and deny that they are one in the same – wait till you read the scam about the white guys wearing wigs posing as Chinese Acrobats: (LOL)
http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=524&pst=93728

They could be coming to your town next and they could be changing the name to do so!


*Do you LOVE Investigative Reporting? Real life MOB stories? Real-life deep, twisted SPY stories? Read just how far the mobster tied spies at Ringling will go to hide their dirty nasties, in this awesome investigative report by SALON.com Magazine. I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed when you read this!!!:

If Ringling comes, you can also educate the schools about the Internet Child Porn scandal about a Ringling CLOWN. If animal abuse does not work, which often times it does not, we must make use of the other nasty habits and dirty, scandalous tricks circuses use to literally SCAM and mislead the public. As CNN reports:
http://www.cnn.com/2004/LAW/05/25/clown.porn.charges/

A shocking 241-page report was documented with federal investigations about Ringling’s mistreatment of elephants and proof of how the USDA and APHIS has worked in cahoots with Ringling to cover up more of their dirty nasty elephant abuse and premature deaths.
http://www.fundforanimals.org/library/documentViewer.asp?ID=1130&table=documents


Meet Tom Ryder, former Ringling employee:
http://www.api4animals.org/1572.htm

Read about the negligent death of African Lion Clyde on the Ringling train when they refused to give him water and just plain air! And the death of baby elephant Ricardo who was being forced to train on a circus platform when he was only months old!

Watch the vid:
http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/Prefs.asp?video=carson_barnes


C&B, like Ringling, breeds elephants (who generally die prematurely). They legally, yet falsely claim “conservation.” Although they are only breeding to profit themselves. One primary example is the sad story of poor baby Jennie.
http://circuswatchwa.org/news/peta_carson_barnes_circus.htm

Last year, C&B used a humiliating photo ad of Jennie – even after she died at the young age of 5, still advertising her. They claimed publicly that it was a clerical error. However, they are still using the same ad this year. http://www.insolidaritywithanimals.com/news/june04babyele.php
They also claim she and baby Obert’s mother is ISLA (ILA) a traveling elephant when in fact their mother is ISA (a different ele) who is used for breeding at their breeding compound, not traveling. They took baby Obert away from her far too soon to perform, so they (convenient clerical error) claim ISLA is the mother to the media. Yet another scam to mislead the public about their elephant abuse. See the sickening ad featuring baby Jennie, still being used today (use password “jennie”):
http://dingo.care2.com/pictures/c2c/galleries/cache/derivative/2/3/2336777.jpg


A wealth of basic info- more links:

There is so much you can do – educate kids and parents in your community about all of these things. Tell your friends and family. Write your legislatures. If in the US, write your 2 Senators and Representative and ask them to take action against the use of animals in circuses.

Save More Than 100,000 Animals! Stop Fur-Farming Complex From Being Built in Norway

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/179421711
---------------------------------------------------



While fur farming has been banned in the UK, Norway’s Hå Municipality and Norwegian fur farmers are planning to build a massive fur-farming complex in Rogaland, in the western part of Norway. The complex would be the largest in Norway and would house more than 110,000 animals.

This is despite the fact that the majority of Norwegians are against fur farming and, according to Norwegian animal rights group NOAH, a Norwegian court has ruled that fur farming is unethical.



Animals on fur farms suffer severe confinement and deprivation of all that is natural to them. Fur-farmed animals are often seen bobbing their heads and pacing in their dirty cages—disturbing, repetitive behaviour that is a sign of severe psychological distress.

Several fur farmers have shown interest in the complex but are seeking government support.



Please contact Hå Municipality to politely lodge your protest, and encourage your friends and family to do the same:

Hå kommune (Hå Municipality)
(+47) 51 79 30 00 (switchboard)
(+47) 51 79 30 01 (fax)
post@ha.kommune.no

Please also contact Teknisk Etat (The document distribution centre responsible for regulation of the land that would be used for the complex):
teknisk@ha.kommune.no

Please also contact the head municipal planning officer for Hå commune:
Kristian Sjursen
(+47) 51 79 31 04
(+47) 41 53 26 60 (cellular)

You can also send letters to the local politicians in Hå Municipality. You can find the names and addresses of relevant politicians in Hå on NOAH’s Web site.

For more information on fur, please visit FurIsDead.com

THANKS LUCY TRIPP FOR CREATING THIS PETITION!!

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to give you an update regarding the Kindervision Foundation and their campagaign using wolves in a negative manner. www.wolftraps.com

I spoke to the corp. offices today. The President Mr. Sebastian is out of town until Wednesday and I have arranged for a conference call with him on that day. I spoke at length with the Debra, she is the V.P. and expressed my concerns about the campaign and coming up with some pro-active solutions. She was very polite and understanding, but not the person that makes the ultimate decisions. She did state that Mr. Sebastian is very aware of the issue and is willing to discuss it on Wednesday.

I still encourage everyone to sign the petition and send pro-active polite emails stating why this campaign needs to change and the effects it has on wolves.

We are up to 471 sig's on the petition! Let's keep it going folks!

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/549797183

I will update you on Wednesday.

Thanks!

Dear Sunshineray,

Thank you for your past support in signing the "Stop
Canada's Cruel and Senseless Seal Hunt" petition. We
thought you'd be interested in an update from the field
from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW):

With the first phase of Canada's annual seal hunt in the
Gulf of St. Lawrence now over, more than 105,000 seals
have been killed. Spectacular ice floes transformed into
giant white nurseries just weeks ago are now stained red
with the blood of seal carcasses as far as the eye can
see. Last week they began killing another 200,000 seals
in Newfoundland.

The Canadian government maintains that the hunt is humane.
But our observers returning from the ice have witnessed
numerous acts of cruelty and suffering, from clubbed baby
seals left in agony while hunters move quickly onto the
next seal, to seals shot and left to die a slow death
under the ice. As IFAW's video footage shows, the seal
hunt continues to inflict unnecessary suffering and cruelty
to baby seals as young as 12 days old.
___________________________________________________

Thanks to your earlier efforts, we have made great strides
in building the international outrage needed to end the
slaughter.

But we need your help to intensify the pressure on Canada's
government to end the hunt!

Please cut and paste this message into an email to your
friends to maintain the momentum:

Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the petition:
"Stop Canada's Cruel and Senseless Seal Hunt" from The
International Fund for Animal Welfare:
http://www.care2.com/go/z/23181

Many people are unaware that hundreds of thousands of
baby seals are still being cruelly killed each year mainly
for their fur -- frivolous luxury items that no one really
needs! Please help by speaking out against the largest
government sanctioned slaughter of marine mammals
in the world by signing this petition.

Every voice raised against such a cruel and unnecessary
hunt is critical to raising the public pressure needed to
convince the Canadian government to change.

Sign here: http://www.care2.com/go/z/23181

Thank you!

Kermode bears are black bears with a genetic distinction that makes them white. There are less than 400 left in the world and they only live in BC's coastal rainforest.

Logging companies are planning to cut down large amounts of the trees in this forest, leaving the Kermode bear's habitat diminished, and will therefore destruct the population of this rare treasure. Please sign this petition to save these bears from extinction because they're losing their homes so that we can have new IKEA furniture.

We say, Save the endangered white black bear (the Kermode Bear) from extinction: stop the logging of their homes!! Sign the petition

Carter Niemeyer authorizes eradication of Chesimia Wolf Pack! October 04, 2005 4:10 PM

Carter Niemeyer authorizes eradication of Chesimia
Pack!

It wasn't too long ago that he wanted two members
murdered.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Chesimia.html

Now he wants to murder the rest of the members of the
pack.

http://www.casperstartribune.net/articles/2005/10/03/news/regional/fb064a401f6afa2c8725708e0005f76b.txt

Instead of showing that non lethal methods and
Predator Friendly Ranching can be
used to prevent livestock depredations without
violence, Carter Niemeyer
is once again ignoring these methods and engaging in
murder.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1) First contact Niemeyer and voice your outrage
against his continual
denial of non lethal methods and Predator Friendly
Ranching. If
he educated the rancher Tom Beale and helped getting
him to
use non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
Practices, this
would have never happened. Murder is not a solution
for co-existence.


2) In the letter to Niemeyer, use the links from here:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html
This is because all here is proof and that which he
continues to deny.

3)Carter Niemeyer's email is: carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

4) Spread the word, for the more people that oppose
this, the more
it shows that many more folks refuse to have creatures
that deserve
to live oppressed.

5)Take action now.

don't educate others about it as a solution to livestock interactions with Wolves.
This is what they ignore.
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.htm

Email them both today in opposition to their murderous ways and tell them to stop murdering Wolves and start using non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
practices to prevent this. They know the Ranchers they murder for, so these
issues can be prevented without violence.
Their emails are the following.

graham_mcdougal@fws.gov
and
ed_bangs@fws.gov

 Carter Niemeyer wants to murder more Wolves!

Niemeyer wants to murder a Wolf from the Moyer Basin Pack. One has been murdered
already. And it is being 'donated' for research to a David Carrier of the University of Utah (carrier@biology.utah.edu) who will be harvesting the poor dead Wolf's organs for another project in Illinois.

As a result, he wants to murder another Wolf.
And he continues to ignore non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching as solutions to peaceful existence in the issues of livestock interactions with Wolves.
And as always Ed Bangs is the knowing bystander who refuses to do anything about it and tries to unsuccessfully hide the identities in this report of the murderers and collaborators involved.

Contact them both at:

carter_niemeyer@fws.gov
and
ed_bangs@fws.gov

And contact Carrier about his unethicalness for participating in dealing with
murderers for the sake of 'science.'

Wolves in Turkey and Wolves in Danger in Wyoming! October 17, 2005 3:18 PM

Wolves in Turkey and Wolves in Danger in Wyoming!
10/15/2005

Have European Union get Wolves protected in Turkey!

It is very likely the European Union will be admitting Turkey soon.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/04/international/europe/04turkey.html?ex=1286078400&en=c2de51c923f6ec23&ei=5089&partner=rssyahoo&emc=rss

As of late, Wolves are not treated well in Turkey.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/TurkishWolf.html

In fact, torture and the murder of Wolves on the Turkish TV networks is the epitome of what they think of them.
As a result the European Union, if they admit Turkey needs to begin an active effort to preserve and protect the
Wolves in Turkey.

Education, in addition to proliferation of non lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching practices
in Livestock interactions with Wolves can create hopefully a lasting peace. This is our opportunity to get
peace in Turkey between Wolves and humans. A peace without violence or oppression.

Write letters now via email to the European Union. Here is the url for contacts.

http://europa.eu.int/geninfo/mailbox/inst_en.htm

Use the links and info from this url justifying the use of non lethal methods only in livestock situations.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Also here are links to books and various info on literature on Wolves to distribute for educational purposes.

Sentaor of Wyoming Wants Wolves Delisted so Murders can resume wholesale!

Senator Michael Enzi has recently said in a new article,
"wolves have "decimated" the state's wildlife and harmed ranchers." http://www.casperstartribune.net/articles/2005/10/14/news/wyoming/5c8d0a56fe3f6c418725709a00578a47.txt

As a result, he is going to Gale Norton and wanting her to delist them.

We know this claim is ridiculous. Since Wolves rarely attack cattle,
this is one reason. Another, ecosystems with Wolves have finally
started to recover. Even studies in Yellowstone have proved this.

This is nothing more than fear and lies being generated as an excuse to delist Wolves so more can be murdered.

What can you do?

First send an email to Enzi at http://enzi.senate.gov/email.htm

This is to oppose his decision to have Wolves delisted.
Explain that Wolves are not decimating wildlife, and that Wolves
haven't been decimating livestock and that there are peaceful means
available to live with Wolves, rather than murdering them.

The proof is right here:

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.htm

Then please contact Gale Norton and tell her the same. She doesn't
need to delist Wolves in Wyoming, and she already has allowed more
Wolves to get slaughtered in Idaho and Montana. Wolves do not need to
be murdered for co-existence.

Please contact Gale Norton at :E-mail: gale_norton@ios.doi.gov

Wisconsin DNR teams up with Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation to Murder Wolves! October 20, 2005 3:37 PM

Wisconsin DNR teams up with Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation to Murder Wolves!

Recently, the Wisconsin Farm Bureau decided to team up with the murderous Adrian Wydeven of the Department of Natural Resources. They want to challenge (http://www.wisconsinagconnection.com/story-state.cfm?Id=1237&yr=2005)
the recent ruling of Federal Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia who prevented the murder of Wolves in livestock depredations. (http://www.timberwolfinformation.org/info/archieve/newspapers/viewnews.cfm?ID=2669)

What can you do? First contact the Judge of the recent activities. Thank her for her support last month on the ruling and ask her help in stopping this recent attempt at more violence by the Wydeven and the WFB.

Hunting Interests Threaten Wolves! October 20, 2005 3:38 PM

Hunting Interests Threaten Wolves!

A recent article came out in the Idaho Statesman about one of the biggest threats to the Wolves.

http://www.idahostatesman.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040620/NEWS01/406200325/1001

It isn’t ranchers (who don’t support non lethal methods or Predator Friendly Ranching) or the USFWS or the DNR in this article, it is hunters and outfitters that are also a driving force of hate and violence.

In particular, it is the Anti Wolf Coalition led by Ron Gillett and Jack Oyler
(Email: Nowolves@centralidahowolfcoalition.com Homepage: http://www.usa4id.com/ciwc/) and their sponsors, the Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife (led by Nate Helm) Email: USA4ID@USA4ID.com Homepage:http://www.usa4id.com/ciwc/) who are a threat to the Wolves as well.

They also support Tim Sundles (Email: manager@natureswolves.com)
, who has a site (http://www.natureswolves.com/index.html) promoting Wolf violence.  He also murdered a Wolf in a false claim of self-defense (http://www.keepandbeararms.com/Information/XcIBViewItem.asp?ID=2424) and committed another crime by murdering a dog. (http://www.ourplanet.com/imgversn/news.html)

Tim Sundles also made a recent appearance and supported murder of Wolves.
http://www2.kbcitv.com/x68477.xml


The USFWS and DNRs (those who murder within these organizations) oppress Wolves because they can and they are soulless murderers who believe Wolves must be enslaved by Humanity. They don’t care about ethics; they just want to get ‘the job done.’

The Anti Wolf Coalition and the Sportsmen believe that Wolves are a threat to hunting interests and hate their presence in Idaho. Fueled by pure hatred, and fear of something that is different than them, they want to eradicate Wolves completely in their state. The AWC has been around for many years, since 1999. They know that the USFWS already murders Wolves, and by showing their murderous hatred and crowds, they want the USFWS to murder more Wolves.

One of the worst parts is as this article points out is that they have their own ‘scientists’ to prove their racist and murderous ideals.  The worst part is that this movement is growing. Of course them being totally insane doesn’t help either.

What can one do? Contacting these groups about their hatred and racism and getting them to stop it is one manner. Telling them that Wolves aren’t monsters, they rarely attack people and on top of that, if they did eradicate their own prey which was elk, there would be no food for them. This whole situation is because of hunters being selfish and not wanting to share with fellow beings who live with them. Hating them because Wolves are different and because they fear what they don’t understand.

Or as one quote that I remember that is quite accurate:

“It is an historical fact, sharing has never been humanity's defining attribute.” -- Professor X from X2: X-Men United

Another is warning your Senators and Congress people about it. Although most states don’t have the problem of pure hating gun toting hunters, it could arise in the future.

We have to let these racist men know that we are not going to tolerate racism, prejudice and unjust violence. Just as the Neo Nazi’s were stopped from marching in Germany recently (http://sf.indymedia.org/news/2005/10/1720450.php), we need to stand up to these people. Just because they are a big organization doesn’t make them right or justified. We have to take a stand now before they gain more ground and Wolves lives will be in danger.

Oregon Cougar Management Plan Means Slaughter for Thousands of Cougars Thursday, 12:03 PM
ACTION ALERT FROM THE COUGAR FUND
YOUR HELP NEEDED IMMEDIATELY!
Comment deadline: October 2005

Constant attention must be paid to the actions of Oregon’s government
when it comes to protecting cougars. Thanks in part to your diligent
calls and letters, Oregonians managed to protect cougars during the
previous legislative session from a well-funded assault to reinstate
hound hunting. Unfortunately, OREGON COUGARS ARE NOW IN EVEN GREATER
DANGER AS A RESULT OF THE STATE’S NEW AND REVISED COUGAR MANAGEMENT
PLAN.

A MASSIVE STATEWIDE SLAUGHTER IS PLANNED UNLIKE ANYTHING WE'VE EVER SEEN OR HEARD OF IN OREGON OR THE NATION.

Oregon’s Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has a plan on the
fast-track to authorize the wholesale slaughter of cougars in the
state. There are public hearings planned throughout the state during
the month August only. Please try to attend a meeting in your area and
speak out for the big cats! Please refer to the “What you can do”
section below.

What the plan does:

The Cougar Management Plan (CMP) has 4 objectives, all of which should be opposed:

1. Reduce the entire statewide population of cougars in to size
estimated 1994 (before the passage of Measure 18) levels. This means a
reduction in the population by a minimum of over 40%; from a pre-Measure 18 population of over 5 thousand cats down to 3 thousand animals.

2. Reduce the number of safety and pet-related complaints to 1994
levels; in 2003, there were approximately 900 in 2003 down to 500 in
1993--complaints are not a good way to measure anything since few can
correctly id a cougar and media hype sends these numbers
soaring--additionally, the method for collecting reports is poor and
anybody can place a call, saying just about anything, and it is logged
as a complaint

3. Bring livestock complaint numbers down to 1994 complaint levels

4. Bring prey (elk and deer) populations back up to 1994 management
levels --'managing' cougars to keep prey at high levels so hunters have
more to kill

Method of reaching these killing goals:

Oregon is divided into six hunt zones, and a kill quota is established
for each of these zones to bring the cougar numbers down to estimated
1994 population figures for each zone.

Although cougars kills are at all time high in the state as of 2005,
this is not enough to satisfy certain members of Oregon’s state
government. To ensure the killing of cougars will have the most
long-term affect to reduce the states cougar population, they will
strictly target female cougars, thus ensuring cougar populations will
very slowly (if ever) rebound to current levels.

The Plan aims to ensure the massive cougar quotas are met by hiring
federal and state hunters to systematically stalk female cougars in
areas around human population centers and in the forest where deer and
elk are not as plentiful as they once were in '94 and which show
(anecdotally) sport hunting returns have been poor. The government
hunters will use traps, snares, poison and (of course) packs of dogs
until up to 45% of the dead cats are females.

Please note that the plan does not allow sport hunters to kill the additional two-thousand plus animals, because to do so would represent the overturning the will of Oregon voters who have voted time and time again to protect cougar
population.
THE INTERESTED PUBLIC NEEDS TO MAKE IT CLEAR WE ARE
OPPOSED NOT ONLY TO THE UNETHICAL AND CRUEL METHODS OF SPORT KILLING,
BUT ARE OPPOSED TO THE WHOLESALE SLAUGHTER OF COUGARS BEING PERFORMED BY ANYONE, INCLUDING AGENTS OF THE FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS.

WHAT YOU CAN DO
(...)
2.
Immediately contact the governor's office.
Be sure to thank Governor Kulongoski for his opposition to reinstating hounding during the previous legislative session, and ask him to stop the slaughter of cougars in the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Cougar Management Plan. The Governor can be reached at (503)378-5482 or online at:
HTTP://governor.oregon.gov/Gov/contact_us.shtml

THIS IS THE BIGGEST THREAT THAT HAS EVER BEEN AIMED AT COUGARS IN THE STATE

 October 21, 2005 12:06 PM

Please, crosspost, it is urgent! help is needed! 11:57 AM
The contact form to the Oregon governor is messy, and it is limited to 1000 characters, I have been looking through the net for his mail and it is impossible to find. I believe traditional letters could probably make more impact.
Maybe, we could do a petition around this, because it is seems a TERRIBLE THREAT to cougars, this proposal. I have been surfing around the Mountain Lion Foundation, with my delay - because this problem has been posted there all summer, I believe - and have found there is another pression point here : http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/cougar/ (The Mountain Lion Foundation action alert link : http://www.mountainlion.org/action_show.asp?action_id=21 ) Please, if you haven't send the mail or a letter, do it! If you haven't crosspost this, do it! Do whatever, we have 10 days!

Remember, is IMPORTANT, and any help counts!

New Updates on Action Alerts to help Wolves from 10/20/2005 October 26, 2005 12:13 PM

New Updates on Action Alerts to help Wolves from 10/20/2005
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/index2.htm

Although the article about the Anti Wolf Coalition in
the Statesman was from 2004
(http://www.idahostatesman.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040620/NEWS01/406200325/1001),
it is still relevant since I got a disturbing reply
from Nate Helm (nhelm@spro.net) (one of the main
directors of the coalition. Naturally I had to reply
to lies and his proof of murderous intent. He still
wants Wolves murdered and oppressed to serve his
agenda. (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/NateHelm.doc)

Thus he still is a threat.

And what about Adrian Wydeven from the 10/20/2005
Action alert? adrian.wydeven@dnr.state.wi.us

He still supports murder in the guise of false peace.
(http://www.heartofthewolf.org/AdriansMurderManifesto.doc)

So contact them and oppose their nefarious plans! And
get them to stop murdering Wolves!

USFWS and DNR Want to Delist Wolves! Stop it now! October 28, 2005 2:44 PM

USFWS and DNR Want to Delist Wolves! Stop it now!

It started with an article that has the mass murderer Adrian Wydeven wanting to
bypass the recent ruling of Federal Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia who prevented the murder of Wolves in livestock depredations.

Article about permit:
http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/sports/archive/sports_23150239.shtml

Articles about Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle:
http://www.wisconsinagconnection.com/story-state.cfm?Id=1237&yr=2005
http://www.timberwolfinformation.org/info/archieve/newspapers/viewnews.cfm?ID=2669

The USFWS is the one’s that Wydeven sent the idea to get a permit to murder more Wolves and delist them in three states: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota.

And the USFWS apparently supports the idea in the Northern Rockies.

http://news.fws.gov/NewsReleases/showNews.cfm?newsId=008BDB16-65BF-03E7-28DC7D9416C80573


Wolves don’t have to be murdered, period. Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching proves that they don’t have to die. http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

And delisting would be a death sentence for many Wolves.

What can you do?

First phone Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle and let her know of Adrian’s and the USFWS’ intent to defy her authority on this issue.

Her contact info is:
Chambers:  (202) 354-3230

Courtroom Deputy:
   Gwen Franklin (202) 354-3145

Court Reporter:
   Lisa Griffith (202) 898-0168

Second, call the U.S. District Court Judge Robert Jones of Oregon who has defended Wolves time and time again by not allowing them to be delisted to alert them of the danger to Wolves. (503)-326-8340

Then contact the USFWS and oppose this newest scheme to murder and oppress Wolves! Their contact page is: http://www.fws.gov/duspit/contactus.htm

Lastly, email Adrian Wydeven in opposition to his plans of murder!

TWO WOLF ACTION ALERTS! 5:40 PM November 01, 2005 5:47 PM

TWO WOLF ACTION ALERTS! 5:40 PM
Comment on Oregon Wolf Management Plan!

Due to the pressure of the Ranching community in Oregon,
they want to extend the comment period to Nov 30th.

This is because they along with the Oregon Wildlife Commission
want to make several 'changes' in the Wolf Management Plan.

These changes are:

• Designated the wolf as a special status mammal.

• Created a state-funded compensation program for livestock killed by
wolves.

• Allowed livestock owners without a permit to kill wolves caught in
the act
of killing livestock.

http://www.oregonlive.com/newsflash/regional/index.ssf?/base/news-12/1130606
041220860.xml&storylist=orlocal

What should be done?

Write letters to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

What you should have the focus of your letters be:

1) Althought compensation programs are helpful, what actually needs
to be done is further education and implementation of Non Lethal Methods and
Predator Friendly Ranching Practices. Wolves should not be murdered, period.

Proof is here:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Livestock owners should not murder Wolves and should not be allowed
to have permits to murder Wolves in livestock issues since it will most
likely lead to slaughter. Peaceful means and living with Wolves without
violent or oppressive means is the only way Humans can co-exist with them
truly.

Jimenez gives out Murder Permit!

Mike Jimenez has recently shown his true colors once again.
In an interview, he made a statement denying the constructive
nature of Non Lethal methods.

http://www.sublette.com/examiner/v5n31/v5n31s4.htm

Disturbingly enough, non lethal methods are only, 'considered'
to be used, but not used anyway.

What is the result of further denial and murder being the solution
for a false co-existence between Humans and Wolves? He makes
a murder permit.

http://www.sublette.com/examiner/v5n31/v5n31s4.htm

A permit to murder two Wolves on a rancher's property
since he won't take the time or effort to educate these same
ranchers about Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) First write to Mike Jimenez, the USFWS 'Wolf Recovery' Coordinator at
mike_jimenez@fws.gov and tell him that murder is unacceptable in livestock issues. In fact
the whole reason this problem is continuing is because he won't employ
non lethal methods or Predator Friendly Ranching, so tell him this.

The proof is in http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Write a letter to the editor for the Sublette Examiner and tell that
non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching do work and are effective
and the lack of responsibility for them being used not only causes the deaths
of Wolves, but continues to create the rift that stifles peace between Humans
and Wolves without violence or oppressive means.

Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime Murder 9 Wolves in a month! November 01, 2005 7:00 PM

Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime Murder 9 Wolves in a month!

Recently an article came out in the Billings Gazette about a murder spree that Carolyn Sime and Ed Bangs perpetuated.

http://www.billingsgazette.com/index.php?id=1&display=rednews/2005/10/31/build/state/28-wolfkills.inc

Why did this all occur? Because they failed to use non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching methods. And these two failed once again to educate ranchers about these methods. Of course Sime 'claims' to feel remorse but we know the true goal of the USFWS.

As Ed Bangs said it himself in this article: He isn't concerned with the number of wolves that have been ordered killed.

So once again Carolyn Sime and Ed Bangs ignore the lives of Wolves and murder them without a second thought.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

First you can send off emails to Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime

Their email addresses are:

Ed Bangs: ed_bangs@fws.gov

and

Carolyn Sime: casime@state.mt.us

(She also was involved in the murder of two Wolves back in April of 2005 -- http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Sime.html , and at one point called Wolves not Wildlife and supported the oppression of Wolves! http://www.heartofthewolf.org/lazy.html )

Both need to be first held accountable for these murders since they shouldn't have happened. Second, they need to be told to start using Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices instead of murdering Wolves. The information that proves it is here: http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

And they need to also be told to start respecting wildlife, not treating Wolves like garbage to just murder and do with as they please. Only through promoting non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching will peace between Humans and Wolves happen.

And write letters to the Billings Gazette.

By mail to:
P.O. Box 36300
Billings, MT 59107-6300

By fax to:
(406) 657-1208

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves! November 18, 2005 12:07 PM

Thanks Tracy for your support. I appreciate it. Now on to the new alerts for this week.

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves!

"People fear what they don't understand." -- Storm
from X-Men 90s Animated Series

"Humans are capable of the most wonderful and the most
terrifying things with the power of science. As a
scientist, it makes me shiver just thinking about it."
-- Ciel, from Megaman Zero 4

An incident has broken out in Canada. A man was killed
in a forest at Points North Landing. The true cause of
death is unknown. However, the Canada media as well as
the Canada Environmental Department have automatically
blamed it on Wolves. Although it is know that the
Wolves predated on the corpse of the individual, these
sources are acting on fear, claiming that the Wolves
killed the man.

Because of this fear of Wolves, they have issued an
order to destroy any Wolves that, 'attack' a human.
Thus as fear leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
Even the 'scientist', Tim Trottier wildlife biologist
with the Canadian Environmental Department knows that
there has not been a Wolf attack on a human in 100
years! And animal attacks on humans are extremely
rare. And they don't attack humans for the selfish
reasons that humans do each other. Usually it is in
self-defense, or someone violating their territory, or
mistaking them for food.

http://www.cbc.ca/sask/story/wolves051114.html

As a result, you must protest this act of aggression
against the Wolves!

First contact Tim Trottier

Jimenez and USDA Wildlife Services murder four Wolves! November 18, 2005 12:07 PM

Jimenez and USDA Wildlife Services murder four Wolves!

Mike Jimenez of the USFWS and Rod Krischke of USDA
Wildlife Services in Wyoming have murdered four Wolves
from the Farson Pack.

http://www.jacksonholestartrib.com/articles/2005/11/17/news/wyoming/0ea03d72588150a4872570bc0003dd74.txt

This is once again because Jimenez failed to promote
non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Instead he decided to side with USDA Wildlife Services
(under the direction of Rod Krischke) who wants Wolves
murdered. They both have been involved before in
several Wolf murders. In fact, it was a murder of an
Alpha Female and her pups!

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/USDAWYMurder.html

What can you do?

1) First contact Mike Jimenez (mike_jimenez@fws.gov),
and tell him that this outrageous form of violence and
oppression is not acceptable. He needs to stop his
murderous rampages and start promoting non lethal
methods and Predator Friendly Ranching.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Also contact Rod Krischke
(rodney.f.krischke@aphis.usda.gov) the director of
USDA Wildlife Services. And tell him that Wildlife
Services should not be about murdering Wolves in
livestock depredation issues, but promoting non lethal
methods and Predator Friendly Ranching methods that
allow co-existing with them without violent or
oppressive means.

3) Contact Jim Magagna (wsgajim@uswest.net) of Wyoming
Stock Growers Association. This man who represents
ranchers, needs to stop his pathological hatred of
Wolves, murdering them and start promoting peaceful
means to prevent livestock depredations.

Please Act now!

Don't See Film Version of Chronicles of Narnia! November 23, 2005 2:02 AM

Don't See Film Version of Chronicles of Narnia!

Wolves falsely portrayed in film version of Chronicles of Narnia Film!

As you readers are most likely aware of, the film Chronicles of Narnia, made by Disney, will
be out in theaters on Christmas Day. I am sure due to the current population of the U.S., many
drones will see it and it will make millions of dollars.

However, I for one will be one of those who will not be seeing the film. Why you ask?
Check this out. In the film, there is a scene that is not in the books that will be defacing the Wolves.

It is a scene where Wolves are chasing the main protagonists to a chunk of ice where they are trapped.
Then one of the children uses the staff he was given to help him and the others escape.

http://www.narniafans.com/movies/faq/page03.php

It's rather sad considering the film's creators decided to import them from New Zealand just to be portrayed as 'evil animals.' Not to mention this is going to leave the impression on children for years that Wolves are evil.

http://www.theonering.net/archives/theonelion/10.21.04-11.08.04

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that you also get to fight Wolves in the home game based on the film?

As one critic describes:

GamePro
The between-level load times are also slow, but the greatest concern is the unhelpful and idiotic friendly A.I. that leaves you alone, fending off hordes of attacking wolves while your siblings stand stupidly by.

http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbx/chroniclesofnarnia

Don't blame C.S. Lewis for the fact that his movie has been altered severely. He was a lover of animals and humans alike. In fact, he said this once.

"If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons." -- C. S. Lewis

So I think he would have a beef with not just the movie but the game as well. And I am sure he is also rolling in his grave right now.

So thanks once again to Disney (who once did this in the animation adaptation of Beauty and the Beast), Director Andrew Adamson (The Creator of Shrek) and his staff for making a film that perpetuates Wolves as being monsters and evil.

You won't be getting my 9 dollars. And I hope those who love animals and respect life won't see this movie or recommend it to children for the same reasons above. So pass this on, if you could.

Take action to protect Europe's Wolves! November 23, 2005 12:17 PM

Take action to protect Europe's Wolves!
http://passport.panda.org/campaigns/campaign.cfm?&uCampaignId=1061

Switzerland, a country with only two or three wolves, is trying to downgrade the animal's conservation status and allow it to be hunted across Europe.
The Swiss proposal, which was submitted to the Council of Europe, will be voted upon at a meeting next week.
Switzerland should immediately withdraw its proposal and instead work to maintain the wolf's protected status in Europe.

New Wolf and Goat story!

Arashi no Yoruni (On the Night of a Storm)

A very cool story about a Wolf (Gabu) and a Goat (Mei).

It has captivated readers from children to adults. Hopefully it will come out in English soon!
And the author Kimura Yuichi is really fond of Wolves and has written alot about them.

Here is an interview with Kimura for more information.

http://www.yamaneko.org/einfo/mgzn/ykimint-e.htm

The series also has a game for it for the Nintendo DS in Japanese, which can be played on
any Nintendo DS. You just have to know Japanese.

Wolf Murdered on Hunt in Canada! December 02, 2005 12:07 AM

Wolf Murdered on Hunt in Canada!

A businessman Jack Burgoyne recently murdered a Wolf on a hunt
for moose.

Why? Because he lured them to his location by faking the calls of a
moose!

The Wolves mistook this hunter and his guide for moose and reacted.
The hunters then murdered the Alpha Male. Which of course, they didn’t
have to do.

http://159.54.226.83/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20051201/OUTDOORS/512010331/

Once again this is the prime arrogance of man. The arrogance
that humans can do whatever they want whenever they want in
the wild without repercussions.

It is also the prime result of who suffers in barbarous hunts. Wolves
and other creatures. Hunts by those who derive pleasure from blasting
animals to pieces who can’t defend themselves from weapons that
can instantly kill them.

If you would like to take action on this, please write a letter
to the editor of the Statesman Journal at:

Colorado Sanctuary Faces Closing - Possible Euthanasia December 09, 2005 11:38 AM

Colorado Sanctuary Faces Closing - Possible Euthanasia

The following is a heart wrenching story of an animal sanctuary similar to Big Cat Rescue in Colorado facing closing and possible euthanasia of some or all of its animals. Please read through the story.http://cbs4denver.com/pets/local_story_339170918.html

Please visit their web site - www.wildlife-sanctuary.org - and make a donation. As one of the volunteers has said, any little bit will help put a dent in their crisis.

“Wild Animal Sanctuary”

1946 WCR 53
Keenesburg, CO 80643
303-536-0118
information@wildlife-sanctuary.org

The center should in addition not euthanize these animals, but find safe places for them to go as well. Animals shouldn't be protected from atrocity, just to be murdered. Please donate now to slow down the process of the closure of this Sanctuary.

Wolf Exploited by an Animal Farm for Narnia Film December 09, 2005 11:38 AM

Wolf Exploited by an Animal Farm for Narnia Film

People can justify just about anything. -- Jack McCoy from Law and Order

Upon the recent uncovering about how a live Wolf was dragged to
be used as an evil monster in the film,

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Narnia.htm

more information has
surfaced.

http://www.mountainx.com/news/2005/1207news.php

In particular, it has been revealed that the Wolf's name is Maverick
and that he came from a Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm.

The founder Nancy Brown decided to use the Wolf in the film, despite
knowing that the Wolf would be portrayed as evil. In this new article
that has surfaced, she has pulled a tactic known as greenwashing.
Greenwashing is when someone who commits and atrocity against the
wild and tries to cover it up by claiming to do something ethical.

In this article 'Screen wolf', she actually believes that although
the Wolves were portrayed as evil in the film, that the big myth
of the big bad wolf will be dispelled because he was a higly trained Wolf.

Millions will see this film and see the Wolves as monsters. And since
when did Wolves become dogs? I know most Wolf Sanctuaries out there,
like Wolf Mountain Sanctuary thrive on educating the public and
treating the Ambassador Wolves with respect, rather than making them
like pets and saying it's a good Wolf so its okay to use it in a film
as evil.

This is greenwashing at its finest, and it is a shame that real Wolves
have to be involved in this scheme. It is also hypocrisy. She didn't
have to use the Wolf known as Maverick in the film. She could have
educated the populace about Wolves without having him in the film as an
evil monster.

Museum has murdered animals on exhibit! December 10, 2005 2:29 PM

Museum has murdered animals on exhibit!

A recent article in the newspaper Fort Wayne, http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/newssentinel/living/13359108.htm
(Tip from Eles P. From Care2)

talks about a museum that opened up in July of this year.

It is called the Sheets Wildlife Museum. And want to know how many animals are in this museum
that he has murdered for the fun of it to put on display?

97 animals and 87 types of fish. In this article the founder Summer Sheets tries to say
he loves animals but he just loves to murder them. And Teresa Daniels, the museum director
thinks it's great that kids can see murdered animals from hunting and thinks it's ok.

One of the most disturbing parts is that this newspaper was promoting this horrible museum
and it's owner in this article as well.

TAKE ACTION

1) Please write a Letter to the Editor at:
http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/fortwayne/contact_us/feedback_np1/

And tell why you think that this is horrible and that animals should not be murdered
for the entertainment of people and placed in musuems. And that this didn't not have
to be promoted in this newspaper.

Mike Jimenez Murders 3 Wolves and Plans to Murder Entire Pack! December 13, 2005 10:54 AM

 Mike Jimenez Murders 3 Wolves and Plans to Murder Entire Pack!

Mike Jimenez, who continually ignores the use of non lethal methods
and refuses to promote them and Predator Friendly Ranching, has struck
again. He has murdered 3 Wolves already of the Daniel Pack and plans to
murder the rest.

Contact him today at:
mike_jimenez@fws.gov

Use this as proof and information that he should use:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Contact him immediately!

In the meantime, it should be known that the notorious Wolf Murderer
Carter Niemeyer is ending his reign of terror in January of next year.
Althought the USFWS thanks him (obviously since they as a whole
have been involved in the thousands of Wolves murdered in the states
of MT, WY, and ID), there will be a permanent article that will
always remember these victims who fell to him.

Of course his email address, to for those interested is:
carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

Thirteen Wolves Murdered in Park County! December 22, 2005 11:30 PM

Thirteen Wolves Murdered in Park County!

The county known as Park has murdered 13 Wolves in the past year.

http://www.helenair.com/articles/2005/12/16/helena/c02121605_02.txt

This isn't the first time that this issue has arisen.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/ParkCounty.html

It is even more disturbing since the contact information for Park County Predatory Animal Control Board
and Craig Acres, district supervisor for the federal government’s Wildlife Services
agency, cannot be found, at least on the web. One thus cannot contact both these parties and tell them
that what is going on here is wrong. That non lethal methods can prevent these conflicts and that
the murder of Wolves is not the answer. Which of course flags conspiracy.

All parties here including the murderous Rod Krischke, state director of Wildlife Services have a role in
this.

Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html) are being denied and not used to peacefully prevent livestock depredations by Wolves. All these parties know what is going on here, that they
refuse to prevent conflicts and incite more by using murder to solves this issue where
it has time and time again.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) First contact Commissioners Marie Fontaine (mfontaine@parkcounty.us) and Tim French (tfrench@parkcounty.us).
They need to know that continued Wolf Murders are unacceptable. Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
practices work and that their implementation and education to the ranching populace would stop this situation peacefully.
Since contact information with Craig Acres of APHIS/USDA/WS cannot be reaches along with the Park County Predatory Animal Control Board, they are the ones who have to hear this.

2) Rod Krischke had a hand in this considering he and the murderous Mike Jimenez of the USFWS in Wyoming work
together and slaughter Wolves. He isn't concerned with the success of Wolves. If he did he wouldn't have participated in
the 37 Wolf Murders in Wyoming that occured this year whcih 13 are in Park County!

Some of these atrocities are listed on these sites below:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/USDAWYMurder.html
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/index2.htm

He needs to be contacted at (rodney.f.krischke@aphis.usda.gov) and told that the handling of this situation should
have never reached this point. Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching has been proven time and time again.
The lack of implementing such measures has created this conflict. He needs to stop participating in this business of murder and start promoting these peaceful methods to successfully live with Wolves.

Please take action now!

Field And Stream Wolf Hunt Poll--Vote No! December 22, 2005 11:32 PM

Field And Stream Wolf Hunt Poll--Vote No!

The recent disaster in Canada where Wolves were blamed
for the death of a man and as a result two were killed in spite of
them not doing anything wrong (see http://www.heartofthewolf.org/CanadaWolves.htm
for a complete breakdown of the situation) has come to a climax.

Field and Stream, the magazine that loves hunting,
of course wants to use this to start hunting them.

Please drop by and vote no for hunt on Wolves. If anything
this whole situation is the pinnacle of human atrocity.

So go to:

http://www.fieldandstream.com/fieldstream/0,13202,,00.html
(at bottom of page)

Here is the text of the poll question:

In the first fatal attack by a healthy, wild wolf ever documented in
North America, an ecology student in Northern Saskatchewan was killed
and eaten in early November. << and Eaten >>??
So we want to know, do you think it's time to start hunting wolves?
Yes
No

They also have their own version of events which of course blames
the Wolves for the incident and want them hunted. They also have
their own insidious archive of propaganda making them look bad.

Creative Non Fiction Supports Wolf Trapping! December 26, 2005 1:27 PM

Creative Non Fiction Supports Wolf Trapping!

A recent search conducted by Cindy, founder of Wolf Tracks on Care2,
came up with a disturbing article that was published.

The article is called 'Killing Wolves' by Sherry Simpson.
http://websearch.cs.com/wm/boomframe.jsp?query=killing+our+wolves+in+Alaska+must+stop&page=1&offset=0&result_url=redir%3Fsrc%3Dwebsearch%26requestId%3D2572eb1f2cac97a5%26clickedItemRank%3D15%26userQuery%3Dkilling%2Bour%2Bwolves%2Bin%2BAlaska%2Bmust%2Bstop%26clickedItemURN%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.creativenonfiction.org%252Fthejournal%252Farticles%252Fissue07%252F07simpson_killingwolves.htm%26invocationType%3D-%26fromPage%3DWMTRoll%26amp%3BampTest%3D1&remove_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.creativenonfiction.org%2Fthejournal%2Farticles%2Fissue07%2F07simpson_killingwolves.htm

It is an article which the author gradually becomes one
who abhorrs murdering of animals, to one who finally accepts it.
It is an article where, Sherry Simpson doesn't mind the
destruction of Wolves. She also is present in vivid detail
of the skinning and defiling of a Wolf that was murdered
by a trapper.

It's rather morbid considering that this article is
from a site called Creative Nonfiction. Is Creative Nonfiction
the murder of a Wolf, skinned and used as property?
It is it Creative when the author of this article
willingly watches all this happen while doing nothing about it?

No!

An aticle from a site that is called Creative Nonfiction
must be one that promotes something philanthropic in nature.
We cannot let a site that is supposed to be creative
think that articles like this constitute creativeness.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Contact Creative Non Fiction at: http://www.creativenonfiction.org/thejournal/contact.htm
or information@creativenonfiction.org

Lengthy replies with really ethical thinking behind them is needed here.
We need to show the illogicalness and unethicalness of what
is going on here. Creative articles on this site shouldn't
have opinions that support murder.

ALSO CHECK THIS OUT:
I discovered a really disturbing product that claims to support
Wolves but in the end supports the hideous regime of the
USFWS/USDA/DNR.

Please go to http://www.heartofthewolf.org/DwCalendarBoycott.htm and take action.

Thanks for your support.

Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm connected with Gentle Jungle! December 27, 2005 8:59 PM

Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm connected with Gentle Jungle!

Thanks to a tip, it has been revealed that Maverick from Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm was
sent to a place called Gentle Jungle to be used in the film. As it turns out,
Gentle Jungle has a notorious history of using and abusing animals for Television
and Movies. Below is the correspondence and the individual who kindly revealed
another wheel in the conspiracy in Narnia.

Dear Mr. Wagner:

While looking for facts on the way Wolves are portrayed in Narnia, I happened to
find your website. I too wrote to Miss Brown, and recieved roughly the same letter
as you did in return. But, I did some searching and found all the other wolves
were supplied by a place known as "Gentle Jungle" (this is also where Maverick
the wolf dog has been sent) I also wrote an email to them saying how wolves
should not be potrayed as evil, becuase they are gentle ,intelligent creatures.
I have just recieved a response, and was appalled at what they wrote!
Their reply is exactly as follows:

"You obviously have never watched three or four wolves eat something
while it was still alive. Do you think Anthony Hopkins is a mean person.
It is a movie!"

I looked into this "Gentle Jungle" a bit and found a few articles about them being
involved with animal abuse. Including the following from here:

http://www.motherjones.com/news/outfront/1997/01/rothman.html

"Clyde the orangutan died a few months after filming Any Which Way You Can in 1980.

During a federal hearing alleging animal mistreatment against the training company, Gentle Jungle, an assistant claimed a trainer beat Clyde with a cane and an ax handle.

Gentle Jungle was fined for other abuses, but not for harming Clyde -- at the time abusing primates was not illegal."

I noticed a few other articles talking about their animal abuse, and saw animals
in small concrete cages on their website. I would like to inform as many people as possible about "Gentle Jungle" and their cruelty to animals... And I believe maybe Miss Brown would like to know the facts on where her wolf dog was sent.

I just wanted to inform you of this, since your website was a good source of
information. I figured you, and other people who want to help wolves would like to
know about "gentle jungle"

Sincerely,
Nyssa McKinney  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

anonymous Animal SOS Sri Lanka June 02, 2007 4:03 PM

Dear friends,

For those that wish to fully understand the suffering of the dogs in Sri Lanka, here is a very short video of what suffering the live dogs are enduring.

The images are graphic but are very real, needed to highlight why a clinic is needed to help these suffering animals.

The images are of live dogs, living with the suffering you see, whose only outlook is to die in a way that no animal should endure.

Animal SOS Sri Lanka have so far dedicated their time and used their own money to help save these animals.

They now need our help so that they can continue in their work, vision, and dream to save suffering animals.

We have been saved from the reality of what is happening in Sri Lanka, lets support those who are brave enough to face it and take action.

No dontaion is too small, any donation helps.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Take care, Paul.
