WILD PICS CAPTURE GRIZZLY CHASING BISON IN YELLOWSTONE PARK

When the pictures first surfaced some in Montana doubted they could even be real.

But now the photographer has surfaced and he’s talking to KTVQ-TV.  Alex Wypyszinski took the pictures last April after dropping his wife off for work:

“I thought it was a horse and carriage,” said Wypyszinski. “That was the kind of noise that I heard.”

By the time he turned around, the two fuzzy brown images were racing quickly toward him.

Wypyszinski pulled out his camera quickly, thinking he was going to catch two moose racing down the highway.

He quickly learned he was mistaken.

“I thought I was having a hallucination or something,” said Wypyszinski. “I couldn’t believe what that buffalo looked like.”

It was a bison, badly burned from an encounter with one of the numerous hot spots in Yellowstone National Park.

The sight of such an injured bison alone is rare, but what Wypyszinski saw next was once in a lifetime.

“Never, ever, ever,” said Wypyszinski. “I’ve seen plenty of bear, and more buffalo. But I’ve never seen anything like that before.”

Here’s part of an audio interview with Wypyszinski:

Starving, ‘Lifeless’ Dog Dumped Over Shelter Fence – Be Vigilant My Friends

Starving, ‘Lifeless’ Dog Dumped Over Shelter Fence

Shelter workers at a Mississippi rescue were leaving for the day and almost didn’t notice a small creature huddled up in a tarp outside the facility.

They moved closer and realized they were looking at a dog. Poor little “Flounder” had been cruelly thrown over the fence and abandoned! He was almost completely hairless and so malnourished he resembled a walking skeleton.

Helpless animals who have been senselessly abused and neglected deserve better. That’s why American Humane Association’s Second Chance® Fund program is here — to make sure they receive the medical treatment they desperately need to start a new life.

Won’t you please donate today to support this vital program, enabling us to help more animals like Flounder?

Flounder Is Now Flourishing!

If you saw Flounder today, you would never suspect what he’d been through. It’s not just that he has a full and lustrous coat, and is a healthy weight. It’s the look in his eyes, which are no longer lifeless and dull, but instead filled with curiosity and joy.

This incredible change happened because caring donors like you took action. American Humane Association was able to provide a Second Chance grant to the Mississippi shelter where Flounder was abandoned, helping the shelter cover the cost of his veterinary care.

Flounder has since been adopted into a new, loving home, where his happiness and newfound zest for life shine through every day!
Flounder proves that homeless pets are far from hopeless. But he’s not alone; thousands of abused and neglected animals need assistance. Please help us help them by donating now to our Second Chance Fund!

Please Support a National Pet/Animal Abuse Registry and Tougher Animal Abuse Laws:

Pet Abuse Registry Started in NY by Suffolk County SPCA… An Idea That is Waaaay Overdue and Needed Everywhere!  So Let’s Do It!!

Tough New Law to treat animal offenders like sex offenders…  Does it go to far… Heck NO!!

It has been proven that child molesters, serial killers, wife beaters, and deviates of all kinds often started as animal abusers or do both through their lives.  It is our job to stop all these types of abuse… and why is abuse of a helpless animal of less importance than child or spousal abuse?  elder abuse?  Or any type of abuse?

Animal abusers of New York’s Suffolk County on Long Island will now go to jail and on a registry for which they will have to pay $50 to maintain the program

The abusers will be registered and their information will be listed online and on lists for rescues, pet stores, and all animal type programs who will be required to check these before selling any pet.  Abusers can also do jail time, public service time and pay larger fees as part of the the program.

Checkout SuffolkSPCA.org

The new program is sparking National Interest!!

Time to create a National registry and database to help abused animals and often their human counterparts that their abusers encounter.

An idea that is waaaaay overdue and Needed everywhere… Let’s do it.  Let’s take it National!!

Heed these tips for keeping pets safe during Halloween

Heed these tips for keeping pets safe during Halloween

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Pet owners realize the Fourth of July, with its loud, frightening fireworks, can be a problem for their furry family members, but Kern County Animal Control is reminding folks that Halloween can also pose many dangers.

"Our pets rely on a daily routine. When that routine is disrupted by lots of noise and commotion they can become frightened or agitated. By following these simple tips, parents, children and pets can enjoy a safe and happy Halloween," said Maggie Kalar, marketing and promotions associate for Kern County Animal Control, in a news release.

Officials provided these tips Wednesday for keeping pets healthy and safe this Halloween:

  • Generally, keep pets at home when trick-or-treating
  • Keep pets safely inside, away from trick-or-treaters and other Halloween activities; they can become frightened or feel threatened at the sight of noisy, costumed children, and run off into the night
  • Keep pets safe in an enclosed area with a toy and some soothing music
  • Always make sure your pet has proper identification. If they become lost, a collar and tags and/or microchip increase the chances that they will be found and returned to you
  • Do not let your pet eat candy. Candy can be harmful to pets, and chocolate can be fatal to cats and dogs
  • Keep foil and candy wrappers away from pets, as these can cause vomiting and could even produce intestinal blockage
  • Don’t put your dog or cat in a costume unless you know he or she loves it. For pets that are dressed up, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement, vision or hearing or impede the ability to breathe or bark. Look out for small, dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces on the costume that a pet can choke on
  • Never offer or allow your pets to consume alcoholic beverages. Keep drinks out of a pet’s reach. If ingested, the animal could become very ill and weak and may go into a coma, possibly resulting in death from respiratory failure
  • Keep pets away from decorations, such as pumpkins and decorative corn. Although considered relatively non-toxic, these items can cause gastrointestinal upset and may even result in intestinal blockage as well if large pieces are ingested
  • Jack-o-lanterns and candles can quickly singe, burn or set fire to a pet’s fur. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire
  • Keep wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations out of reach of pets. If chewed, pets can experience damage to their mouth from shards of glass or plastic or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.

RIP: Paul, The Psychic Octopus

by JAMES FURBUSH on OCTOBER 26, 2010 · COMMENT

Terrible news coming out of Germany this morning.

Death’s inescapable tentacles have curled themselves around Paul the octopus, the cephalopod sage who won worldwide fame over the summer by correctly predicting the results of a host of World Cup matches.

Paul the ‘psychic’ octopus predicted the winners of all Germany’s World Cup clashes, and then the victors in the final, by selecting one of two boxes, each loaded with a mussel food treat and marked on the outside with one of the teams.

Stefan Porwoll, the manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany that the tentacled psychic called home, said Paul appeared to have died peacefully of natural causes during the night.

He was 2 1/2 years old. No word on if he predicted his own death.  But. There’s always a but.  His last prediction was that England would host the World Cup in 2018.  Paul’s definitely won his place in the animal hall of fame.

Special Shepherd~

This is too sweet not to share.  It is a little early in the holiday season for this, but I couldn’t wait…

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard.

During the night the folks came across this scene.

An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night.

We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus’ lap from time to time!

No one mentioned that the dog breed is an Amazing "shepherd!"

Animal Abusers Will Appear on Sex Offender-Like Registry in N.Y.

Published October 14, 2010

FARMINGVILLE, N.Y. — You’ve heard of Megan’s Laws, designed to keep sex offenders from striking again. Now there’s a law created in the hope of preventing animal abusers from inflicting more cruelty — or moving on to human victims.

Suffolk County, on the eastern half of Long Island, moved to create the nation’s first animal abuse registry this week, requiring people convicted of cruelty to animals to register or face jail time and fines.

"We know there is a very strong correlation between animal abuse and domestic violence," said Suffolk County legislator Jon Cooper, the bill’s sponsor. "Almost every serial killer starts out by torturing animals, so in a strange sense we could end up protecting the lives of people."

The online list will be open to the public, so that pet owners or the merely curious can find out whether someone living near them is on it. Some animal abusers have been known to steal their neighbors’ pets.

Cooper is also pushing legislation that would bar anyone on the registry from buying or adopting a pet from a shelter, pet shop or breeder.

The law was prompted by a number of animal abuse cases in recent months, including that of a Selden woman accused of forcing her children to watch her torture and kill kittens and dozens of dogs, then burying the pets in her backyard.

Animal welfare activists hope the law, passed unanimously Tuesday in the suburban New York City county of 1.5 million people, will inspire governments nationwide in the same way Megan’s Law registries for child molesters have proliferated in the past decade.

A spokesman for county Executive Steve Levy said he intends to sign the legislation. It then requires a 30-day review by state officials before it goes on the books.

As Fred Surbito took his Yorkshire terrier, Sasha, in for grooming at a Farmingville pet store this week, he applauded the legislation.

"It’s very, very important," he said. "If you don’t love an animal, you should not have an animal. An animal is part of your family. Like your children, they should never be neglected or harmed. Anybody that does should never own a pet again."

More than a dozen states have introduced legislation to establish similar registries, but Suffolk County is the first government entity to pass such a law, said Stephan Otto, director of legislative affairs for the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

The Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will administer the database, to be funded by a $50 fee paid by convicted abusers. All abusers 18 or older must supply authorities with their address, a head-and-shoulders photograph and any aliases. Convicted abusers will remain on the registry for five years. Those failing to register face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

After the 2009 arrest of Sharon McDonough, accused of burying kittens and as many as 42 dogs in her yard, neighbors whose pets had disappeared feared the worst. But authorities later concluded that McDonough — who is expected in court this month and could get up to two years in prison if convicted — bought the animals or adopted them through shelters or other traditional outlets.

While some abuse is motivated purely by cruelty, Suffolk SPCA Chief Roy Gross said, some recent cases are linked to the poor economy.

For instance, an emaciated Doberman mix was recently found near death inside a foreclosed-on home, he said. And sometimes, pet rescuer Cathy Mulnard said, elderly people on fixed incomes must decide between eating, or feeding their pets.

"They don’t mean to be bad to the animal, but they get overwhelmed and don’t know how to ask for help. They may be innocent abusers," said Mulnard, a founder and co-director of Second Chance Rescue, a Suffolk animal shelter that works closely with the SPCA.

Mulnard called the legislation "a godsend for the animals."

"We take care of our animals and love our animals the way you do your children," she said. "We need to protect every animal that’s out there because they don’t make the decisions in their life; human beings do."
