Coyote Caught in Manhattan
Animals  (tags: wildanimals, COyote, wildlife, animaladvocates, animalrights, ethics, habitat, humans, society )

- 12 hours ago -
Apparently there are even Coyotes on that island again - $24 was far too stingy a real estate offer, and at least ONE indigenous (or perhaps immigrant, as this was once Wolf country) relative is protesting the devastation and greed overwhelming us.
Can a Grazing Buyout Program Ease Life for Wolves and Ranchers?
Animals  (tags: wildanimals, Wolves, wildlife, slaughter, ethics, conservation, abuse, humans, society, protection )

- 12 hours ago -
A fledgling effort in New Mexico's 'Yellowstone of the South.' Ranching interests, though, seem to resist, because as usual they imagine their endeavours at risk. They forget that their forebears killed off the massive "Serengeti" of millions of animals

Animals  (tags: wildanimals, Wolves, wildlife, ethics, society, law, humans, killing, suffering, extinction, conservation, habitat, protection, investigation, animalrights )

Rare subspecies barely hangs on in the Southwest. The Euroimmigrant ranchers often actively (illegally & through heavy lobbying) attempt to prevent the Mexican Wolf's return to its homeland. Another post today will look at a way of protecting public land

Rhino poaching has hit an all-time high, with two to three killed by poachers every day, largely to feed demand for horns in China and Vietnam. This is a critically endangered species and we're at the point where every individual matters."
