Hello everyone.  I wanted to let you know that for those interested, that there are two specials coming up this week on wild animals in captivity - including marine mammals.  I'd suggest checking the programming and times in your area. I'm always cautious about the times. Reference info in red below. (probably available in North America only - but other info should be of interest).

I saw on the news the other night that they are finally sending the three elephants from the Toronto Zoo (Ontario) to the PAWS Sanctuary in California.  Bob Barker was supposed to be involved but there was no mentioned of that.

Also, I saw a TV report where a woman in Florida is taking dogs (homeless) and partnering them with soldiers who have returned and are have an extremely difficult time with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  I can't imagine any soldier returning that doesn't have PTSD.  Anyway, the results are beyond positive and have made a huge difference in these men's lives.

And finally, I also saw another report where they went undercover on two 'battery hen' facilities in Alberta (Canada) and it was just horrendous.  Apparently there's going to be an investigation.  Please people, buy free range eggs and chickens.

Next, we just have to eliminate gestation crates NOW.  Forget this bullshit on phasing out.

Signing petitions is helpful no matter how many times they come around on the same issue.  I've learned it's like building a house, a long and persistent enterprise - you just have to not give up and keep on hammering.

\nI truly believe that one day we are going to look back at this time in history with horror - EXACTLY as we do with the sadistic Hitler. You have to be living in a cave by now if you don\'t know that experimenting on animals at it\'s very core is bad sc...
