BLM… Bureau of Land Management, Confirms It Killed Six of Bundy’s Cattle

The Bureau of Land Management is confirming it killed six cattle as part of its standoff against the Bundy Ranch in Bunkersville, NV.

Breitbart.com: “A total of six cattle died or were euthanized,” a BLM official told Breitbart News. (We would venture to guess that it turns out to be a lot more than 6!)

The official listed the dead livestock cataloged by the BLM explaining, “The Bundy branded bull that was euthanized posed a significant threat to employees during the gather. The Bundy branded cow ran into a fence panel injuring its spine and was euthanized.” The dead animals listed by the official were:

  • 1 Bundy branded bull was euthanized
  • 1 Bundy branded cow was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded bull was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded cow was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded bull died
  • 1 unbranded cow died

According to the BLM, the gather was based on recent court orders. “Most recently, in 2013, in two separate orders, the U.S. District Court of Nevada directed Mr. Bundy to remove his cattle within 45 days, and authorized the United States to impound his cattle,” said the official.

The Bundy Ranch Facebook page, run by Bundy’s daughter Bailey Bundy Logue, posted photos of dead cattle from a mass grave, which they say belong to the Bundy Ranch, a few days after the BLM impoundment and called the agency’s actions “unjust.” The Bundy Ranch claim the cows and bulls were either “run to death” or shot.

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals weighed in on the situation as well telling Breitbart News in a statement, “These animals shouldn’t be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan.”

The Bundy family has refused to stop allowing their cattle to graze on federally-owned land, saying the federal government does not have any authority over them. The impasse led to a tense standoff last-week in which both federal agents and Bundy supporters had sniper rifles trained on each others. The government ultimately backed down, at least for now.

Alert: BLM committed animal atrocities, shot cows from helicopters, constructed mass graves at Bundy Ranch

(NaturalNews  -  Cross-Posted at AskMarion) It is now emerging that the Bureau of Land Management committed horrific atrocities against cattle during its armed occupation and siege of the Bundy Ranch near Bunkerville, Nevada. Photos are now emerging of the mass graves where BLM hastily tried to bury the cattle they killed. BLM agents used government helicopters to run down cattle in 90+ degree heat while shooting the cows that couldn’t keep up. The cattle that survived were then corralled into abusive “bovine concentration camps” that resulted in many cattle dying from dehydration and stress.

In an attempt to cover it up, BLM used machinery equipment to construct mass graves, but the arrival of armed citizens who faced off against the federal agents caused BLM to have to evacuate the area, leaving their cattle atrocities easily spotted by the public. (See photo below of one of the cows killed by BLM.)

BLM engage in horrific animal atrocities and abuse of animals

It is now emerging that scores of Bundy’s cattle were abused and killed, with many being dumped into mass graves. This story was first revealed by 21stCenturyWire.com. This is on top of the tasering, beating, wrong arrests and threatening of citizens with attack dogs during last week’s standoff.

In all, some $3 million of taxpayer money was spent by the government to illegally steal those cattle, only to sell many of them across the Nevada state line in Utah and California, according to 21st Century Wire.

Here’s just one photo of the cattle slaughtered by the BLM. Many more photos are on the way, according to our sources. The mass graves are being exhumed right this minute, and the findings are heartbreaking:

Here’s a photo taken from the air of the BLM’s secret bovine concentration camps. After this photo was released, the BLM ordered the FAA to shut down the air space over the ranch, creating a wartime “no fly zone” to prevent more pictures from being taken:

Is BLM a criminal racketeering operation?

Some have made a legal observation that the BLM, which falls under the U.S. Department of the Interior, may be guilty of racketeering under federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organization) statutes.

This photo was posted by Assemblywoman Michel Fiore. In a widely-shared tweet, Fiore says, “Graphic Photo – One of many casualties from the #BundyRanch standoff. More to follow soon. #ShameOnBLM”

During a live radio broadcast of “The Pete Santilli Show” on the Guerilla Media Network (GMN), Fiore revealed new details of “the BLM’s method of herding where they have slaughtered horses and cows.”

“This time we have video of it, and pictures of it,” she said. “I did post the first picture of one cow [that] was shot in the back of the head from a helicopter. I personally helped save a calf who still had an umbilical cord attached to her as she was separated from her mom. It is such a disgusting event … they (BLM) don’t herd cattle — they slaughter cattle.”

“If you look at the stewardship of land, and herding of cattle, first of all these particular cattle that were grazing on 600,000 acres — understand that when the Bundy family would herd their own cattle, there would be water taps to where the cattle would go down to the water and herd them humbly and softly — no cruelty, no abuse, herding them to where the cattle could get injured,” Fiore continued. “We now have an evidenced-based argument with how the BLM cannot take care of that cattle. We have cows giving birth (in the federal pen) where baby calves have been stepped [on] and killed.”

“They herd animals with helicopters, ATV’s and shotguns… If any cows get out of line, the get a bullet to the back of the head,” she added. “Make sure the BLM are off state land and make sure the BLM are not allowed to herd cattle again”.

She said she observed, near the BLM’s “compound” adjacent to the Bundy ranch, that personnel there were “digging holes.”

“They tried to bury some cows on the compound,” she said, “but I guess they didn’t dig the hole deep enough.” She said the legs of some cows were “sticking up out of the dirt.”

BLM head Daniel P. Love caught flat-out lying about cattle deaths

Earlier this week Natural News released a secret recording of the BLM Special Agent in Charge at the ranch, Daniel P. Love, who said that the BLM had not killed any cattle. Fiore’s reply to Love’s claim: “He’s a flat out liar, period.”

Observers who gathered to offer support to Bundy and his family noted early on that BLM officials had brought in backhoes and earth movers, though initially agents would not answer residents’ questions as to why the equipment was needed. Later it was suspected that BLM-led contractors used them to dig holes to bury dead cattle after attempts to aggressively herd them off Bundy’s ranch. Many suspect that the contractors may have disposed of some cattle off-site, 21st Century Wire reported.

Government tactics caused death of cattle

“It was confirmed by ranchers and observers last week of how the BLM and their ‘contract cowboys’ had deployed aggressive practices whilst rustling the Bundy’s herd, using tactical helicopters [and] forcing cattle to removal zones, often times driving cows uphill in 90-degree heat — a lethal practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals, causing sickness and even premature death,” the wire service reported.

“In addition, reports by observers confirmed that spring heifers who were subject to abusive BLM tactics were forced to abandon some calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later can backtrack to retrieve their young) putting the calves at risk of death.”

Critics now believe the BLM and Clark County Sheriff’s Office could face legal challenges for reckless handling of the situation. It is now obvious that they were all complicit in the commission of horrific atrocities against animals.

The lamestream media continues to pretend none of this ever happened, hoping a nationwide blackout on the story will cause it to go away.

Does your dog see Ghosts? I think My Aspen did…

IMG_2178No Dog About It Blog: I was listening to a local radio station the other morning when the radio host shared a freaky story with all his listeners. It reminded me of my late dog Aspen.

The radio host shared that he had been at home napping with his dog when the dog moved and then sat up and stared at the closet and started to growl. He stayed focused on the closet (and growling) and got up and ran towards the closet. Then suddenly, just before he reached the closet, he came to a dead stop, looked up at the ceiling and then turned around and looked just above the radio host’s head, and growled. The radio host could not get his attention by calling his name and eventually went and got him and brought him back to the bed with him. Of course, he was totally freaked out (as was I!). What the heck did his dog see? Was his house haunted?

When Aspen was alive, she used to do something similar. We would be sitting on the couch watching TV when she would suddenly turn her head towards the entry area near my front door and stare. Sometimes she would even sit up and stare at the upper corner by the front door. I often couldn’t distract her from it either.

There is something freaky about a dog seeing something you cannot see. I cannot tell you how much that used to freak me out. I now think it may have been the front screen door moving in the wind, but it definitely was something that used to set me on edge.

Now that Maggie is here and she too looks all over as if something is moving along the ceilings, I am reminded of Aspen and that familiar tingle along the back of my neck.

Has your dog ever done something like this before? Does your dog act as if someone is not there?
I would love to hear your stories.  Check some of the comments and stories HERE

Gentle Giant… Befriends Some Cuddly Chicks

The unlikely friendship between a golden retriever and flock of fluffy chicks is revealed in a series of close-up photos

By Sadie Whitelocks  -  MailOnline: PUBLISHED: 14:48 EST, 31 March 2014 | UPDATED: 16:05 EST, 31 March 2014 –

Los Angeles-based photographer Candice Sedighan, 21, decided to demonstrate just how ‘gentle’ her pet dog Champ is, by letting him loose with a group of newly-hatched birds.

In one of her images the canine is seen patiently modeling a top hat and, incredibly, a little yellow chick perches on top wearing a matching piece of miniature head gear.

Miss Sedighan said the chick’s hat came from a Lego set.

She taped the accessory to string and balanced it over the animal’s head to give the appearance of it being worn.

In another shot Champ is is seen lovingly nuzzling his newfound friends – which were rescued from a hatchery – being careful not to squash them with his paws or torso.

Miss Sedighan said that ‘this didn’t happen overnight’ and it took years of training to make Champ well-tempered.

She explains on Facebook: ‘There was an incident years ago when my parakeet got loose in the house and Champ "caught it" for me, resulting in an emergency visit to the vet and some stitches for the poor bird.

‘With years of training and our ever growing trust, here he is with some baby chicks.

Along with chicks he has also posed up with babies and most recently butterflies – even allowing one to perch on the end of his nose.

San Diego Zoo’s New baby gorilla has pneumonia… Baby Battling Back

Yahoo: SAN DIEGO (AP) — A baby gorilla delivered by a rare emergency cesarean section last week at the San Diego Zoo has pneumonia and is receiving round-the-clock care.

Zoo spokeswoman Christina Simmons the female gorilla was receiving oxygen and other treatment on Tuesday. She says the gorilla is sleeps a lot but is getting stronger day by day and vets are cautiously optimistic about her condition.

The medical team includes both vets and specialists in human neonatal care.

The gorilla was born March 12 and underwent surgery last Friday for a collapsed lung. It’s unclear whether she contracted pneumonia before or after birth.

The mother gorilla, an 18-year-old named Imani, had never given birth. The zoo says the C-section, rare for a gorilla, was performed because she was in distress after going into labor.

Arizona is Being Overrun by Packs of Vicious Wild Chihuahuas… Vicious? Really?

So what the heck is going on in Arizona?  Vicious wild Chihuahuas?  They are Chihuahuas for God sake…  Why didn’t they notice this sooner?  And as for Chihuahuas nipping people, even at kids…  really?  A big deal?  Not so much in my book…  And terrorizing neighborhoods?  Again, really?  A bit of a stretch I’d say, but cops say wild packs of Chihuahuas are causing quite a problem.  So lets all dig in and help out…

Animal Control needs public’s help wrangling Chihuahuas running loose in Maryvale

Examiner: Stray chihuahuas are hanging out in miniature packs in various Arizona neighborhoods; chasing and nipping at schoolchildren reports Monday’s abc.news.go.

According to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, the little ones have been breeding indiscriminately with each other and now have been overrunning residential areas.

"Part of it is these animals aren’t spayed or neutered, so they’re out looking for a mate and having babies, which also contributes to the problem," stated a representative from Animal Control.

Authorities believe the high number of foreclosures and undocumented workers forced to leave Arizona when the economy crashed, has caused the overpopulation of the small breed.

Sadly, chihuahuas are the most popular breed at the Arizona shelters.

Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dogs, and named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico, although some experts argue that the breed originated in China and Little Artie, who weighs only four pounds, is ready for his new home. This little guy loves Cheerios!were brought over by Spanish traders.

The adorable little breed, with varied temperaments and intense loyalties toward their humans, were made popular by Paris Hilton and her famous "chi" named Tinkerbell.

Residents are urged to safely corral the little dogs if at all possible, and then call Animal Control.

While chihuahuas may not be a popular breed in Maricopa County, many city dwellers in New York City find the adorable little ones perfect for apartment living.

As Bob Barker has been repeating for years and years, please spay and neuter your pets.

US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy Saving Dogs of Sochi

One of the many dark tales coming out of Sochi is the revelation that Russian authorities have been executing stray dogs. US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy plans to do something about it by saving them.

Gus Kenworthy, Olympics, Sochi

American Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska are doing their part to save the stray dogs in Sochi

Obviously, people were outraged when they heard about the killings. Oleg Deripaska, one of the wealthiest men in Russia, was so upset by this that he took it upon himself to save as many as he could. He used his fortune to build shelters for the strays in Baranovka, which is near Sochi.

Kenworthy expected to be on his way home with the pups by now but has been delayed by paperwork problems in Russia?!?

Video:  Stray Dogs Saved by Russian Billionaire…

Some of the the dogs are being adopted by Olympics fans and heading to new homes. According to ABC News on Tuesday the process of American fans adopting a dog is being helped by the Humane Society International.

Olympic fans are adopting dogs in Sochi

Outlining all the requirements for moving a dog from one country to another, it seems that finding a local Russian vet is the fastest way to get help in seeing if Fido can come home. Getting all the shots necessary for the pup to leave the country is the first step. Plus a kennel needs to be acquired for the flight of an animal if they are going to be shipped on an airplane. The process of owning a Russian dog might be costly with just the airplane ride being $150 for the canine’s travels to their new home.

Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska stepped in before the Olympics and opened a mountain refuge for some dogs to hang out, but the issue still isn’t resolved. Fans worry that after the athletes leave the dogs could be left out to roam again or worse.

Offering up assistance to help adopt dogs seems like a logical solution at the moment and if fans are willing to take a new four legged friend home, it might be the perfect answer to helping some of the dogs.

World’s oldest flamingo which has been in the same Australian zoo since before World War II dies aged 83

  • The bird named Greater was a star attraction at Adelaide Zoo
  • It had arrived in 1933 as a mature adult but records aren’t clear where from
  • Heart-broken staff to the decision to put it down this week
  • Arthritic and blind, Greater had taken a turn for the worse
  • Since its death, only one flamingo remains in Australia

Difficult decision: Staff at Adelaide Zoo yesterday put Greater down, their 83-year-old flamingo

Mail Online: Difficult decision: Staff at Adelaide Zoo yesterday put Greater down, their 83-year-old flamingo

It survived World War II and being set upon by a gang of youths but yesterday the world’s oldest known flamingo died in Australia at the age of at least 83.

‘Greater’ was put down by staff at Adelaide Zoo because its quality of life had deteriorated and it was ‘complications associated with old age’ and arthritis, the zoo said on its blog.

They admitted the decision had been ‘difficult’.

‘Greater is best known for being the world’s oldest flamingo and the last Greater Flamingo to have resided in Australia,’ they added.

Greater was brought to the zoo in 1933, although records are unclear about whether it came from Cairo or Hamburg Zoo.

It arrived as a mature adult but its gender and exact year of birth are unknown. 

The bird, who was named after its species, had been a star attraction as it would confidently approach visitors.

Greater Flamingos, characterised by pale plumage and pink bills, have a life expectancy of between 40 and 60 years in captivity, but less in the wild.

The zoo’s chief executive Elaine Bensted told The Australian newspaper staff had taken the decision after their octagenarian bird, who was already almost blind, took a turn for the worse this week.

She said there was no more treatment that would have improved Greater’s life.

The zoo’s veterinary team had already put Greater on a course of anti-inflammatory pain medication to ensure its comfort after its health started to deteriorate last year. ‘Greater responded well to treatment and remarkably survived the cold winter,’ Ms Bensted said.

Prime: Greater had been a favourite at the zoo over the decades. It arrived in 1933 as an adult from either Germany or Egypt

The elderly bird, whose sex is unknown, had already beaten the odds to make a remarkable recovery after a vicious attack in 2008 that left it with a fractured skull. Four youths aged 17 to 19 were charged with the attack. 

The zoo said it may erect a memorial to Greater near the heritage-listed Flamingo Grotto, the zoo’s oldest exhibit, which was built in 1885.

Those were the days: When Greater arrived the zoo was home to several flamingos but because of an import ban Greater had just one companion in his twilight years, Chilly the Chilean flamingo, now the last flamingo in Australia

The flamingo is survived by companion Chilly the Chilean flamingo, 65, which is said to be the last flamingo in Australia.

Zoo staff said they would keep a close eye on Chilly to see how Greater’s death affects it.

The former head of South Australia’s zoos, Chris West, said at the time of the attack that Greater and Chilly were ‘like two grumpy old men but they will certainly miss each other if they are apart for any length of time’.

Chilly is the only remaining flamingo in the country. Although Adelaide Zoo used to be home to several, but the zoo has not been able to replace those which have died because there is now a moratorium on the importation of flamingos, which can carry a raft of avian diseases, into Australia.

Paralyzed dog found dragging himself through streets begging for food

 Saving Thor Examiner January 26, 2014: Earlier this month, a paralyzed, homeless dog dubbed "Thor," was living on the streets in Mexico.

Prior to being discovered, Thor dragged his useless rear legs and begged for food from anyone who would acknowledge his existence.

After a photo of the beleaguered dog began to circulate via social media, an international rescue effort kicked off and soon, Thor was off of the streets, connected to I.V. fluids and receiving care at a veterinary hospital.

In the United States, the rescue agency, The Mutt Scouts, learned about the disabled dog and they made arrangements to have him transported to Los Angeles, Calif.

Less than a week ago, Thor made his journey to California and already, he is like a new dog.

On Jan. 22, The Mutt Scouts shared the following:

The ENTIRE Team – alongside his three doctors – will negotiate this boy through these next weeks, months, whatever is needed, as we get him Stronger, tend to his wounds, his malnutrition, rid him of parasites, understand who he is, address his every need, introduce him daily to movement via his Hot Wheels….and Ready Him for his specialist.

Today, Thor has a new light in his eyes – a light of hope.

Today, he has a wheelchair which will enable him to move with ease and comfort.

Today, Thor’s stomach is full.

Today, Thor knows that he is loved.
