Quebec, Canada – Animals will be considered “sentient beings” instead of property in a bill tabled in the Canadian province of Quebec. The legislation states that "animals are not things. They are sentient beings and have biological needs."
Agriculture Minister Pierre Paradis proposed the bill and wants to change Quebec’s infamous image as a haven for puppy mills
The legislation specifies that animals have biological needs and includes fines of up to $250,000 for those who are cruel to animals, as well as jail time for repeat offenders.
Paradis said the bill puts Quebec more in line with other Canadian provinces like Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba. The act will apply to all domesticated and farm animals and certain wild animals. Paradis said he wants to see animals “treated with dignity as much as possible” it doesn’t matter what animal.
"If you have a goldfish you have to take care of it," he said. "Don’t get a goldfish if you don’t want to take care of it."
Under the bill inspectors will have the power to demand to see an animal if they have “reasonable cause” to suspect the pet or animal is being mistreated. They also can also obtain a warrant to enter a home and seize animals. Repeat offenders would also come under fire as authorities and judges would have the discretion to increase fines and sentence serial violators to jail for up to 18 months.

YORK: Dog found critically injured and near death with the number ’191′ chemically branded onto his sides. Not rushing to judgment here, but consider this: the York region has a large population of Muslims. Muslims consider dogs filthy. Recently, countless dogs in Muslim areas of the UK and Europe have been found poisoned to death.
Below is a passage from the Quran commonly associated with the number 191:
QURAN 2:191 And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
York Region (h/t Susan K) When she found it, it was skin and bones, bleeding from the top of its skull, blind in its right eye, on the verge of death with 191 bleached into both sides of its torso with some sort of chemical. Rarely, if ever, had York Regional Police Const. Netashia McLellan’s heartstrings been tugged so violently.
Since Sunday, when she found him, the Ontario SPCA nursed “Lucky 191″ back to health. The police officer kept tabs on it, as she had previously worked as an animal control officer with the organization.
While the hound has made an “astonishing” recovery and remains comfortable with humans, it has often been seen with its tail between its hind legs. Despite the dog’s injuries, the Ontario SPCA is yet to classify the case as animal abuse. (Exactly what DOES constitute ‘animal abuse’ up there?) Instead, its investigators and police are working to find the dog’s owners.
So far, the theories on how it ended up this way range from being victimized by a twisted individual (You’re getting warmer) to being a former hunting dog that could have escaped and been hit by a car. (Back to freezing your ass off)
As for Const. McLellan, she said she said, “When I found him curled up in a ball, his breathing was erratic. I knew he was struggling,” she said. “This is very upsetting.”
Her theory is the dog could have been used for fox hunting and the numbers used to identify its owner.The hound could have also competed in trials, where dogs are put through a series of obstacles. (Fox hunting dogs are some of the best cared-for dogs on the planet and they don’t brand them like that) Const. McLellan said she is considering adopting the dog, to go along with her three others.
The Ontario SPCA said it has already spent a “couple of thousand dollars” to nurse Lucky back to health. If you have information about this case, call police on 1-888-668-7722, ext. 392. (Not to worry, BNI Canadian reader, Susan K, has already contacted them)

It’s gangs like these that the people of Calgary have to put up with…
A bit different from the problems in other cities…
It proves that every City has their own "unique" gang problems. They Roam the streets and yards night and day.
They hang out in even the best neighborhoods!
…and you CANNOT (legally) stop them.
AREN’T THEY MAGNIFICENT !!!!???
Only in Canada would you see a sign like this!
Read the whole sign. Fort Steele is near Cranbrook…
Symptoms Similar To Radiation Poisoning Killing Seals/Walruses – Russia, Alaska, Canada – Scientists Fear Could Be Infecting Entire Ocean
From link to hisz.rsoe.hu
"The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared a recent rash of seal deaths to be an "unusual mortality event" on Tuesday. More than 60 seals have died and 75 found diseased in Alaska with skin sores and patchy hair loss. The Fish and Wildlife Service has also identified diseased and dead walruses."
"In most cases, necropsies and lab tests have revealed skin lesions, fluid in the lungs, white spots on the liver, and abnormal growths in the brain. Some of the seals and walruses have undersized lymph nodes, possibly a sign of weakened immune systems."
From link to hisz.rsoe.hu
"A mysterious and potentially widespread disease is thought to have contributed to the deaths of dozens of ringed seals along Alaska’s Arctic coast. Scores more are sickened, some so ill that skin lesions bleed when touched. The animals are an important subsistence food, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed listing them as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act."
""Right now we’re leaning toward it being a virus, and that could weaken their immune system,""
"Reports of nearly 150 other seals with the illness have come in from villages outside Barrow, population 4,200, as well as from Chukotka, Russia, and Tuktoyuktak, a village on the northwestern corner of Canada, Herreman said."
"He’s concerned the illness will spread up the food chain, affecting other animals and hunters near Kotzebue Sound."
""I’m scared they might pass it on one way or another and the whole ocean could be affected," Shiedt said. Folks in the Barrow region also are worried. Many of the Slope’s Inupiat residents are about to begin hunting for seals, and some are wondering if they are safe to eat, Herreman said."
"The sickest ones don’t move much on the beaches and they have blisters or wounds that bleed easily, including around the nose, eyes and especially the rear flippers. Others have lost much of their hair. "They’re not deathly skinny. It’s not like they’re dying from malnutrition."

The Streator Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition is in the middle of raising funds to support a drug-detecting dog for the Streator Police Department.
Police Chief Jeff Anderson told the drug coalition Thursday the $9,500 German shepherd named Cliff arrived from Germany last week. The police dog is expected to train for five to six weeks in Indiana, and then an officer will be selected to train an additional two weeks with the dog. Anderson has not chosen an officer yet as caretaker.
The coalition will host a golf play day 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 at Twin Creeks Golf Course to help cover the cost of the dog. The four-person best ball scramble will be $50 to enter and include 18 holes, cart, food and prizes, including chances to win an autographed White Sox jersey, ball or tickets.
The group is purchasing the dog and the department’s drug fund will pay for caretaking expenses.
Tee signs also are available for $100 to sponsor the event. With a purchase, the sponsor will receive $35 off an entry to play.
The coalition is selling raffle tickets for the chance to win a 40-inch LCD TV and Blu-Ray player donated by Shaw Appliance. Other prizes range from $50 to $250. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six and can be purchased at Streator Onized Credit Union, with winners drawn at the play day. Winners do not have to be present.
To play, sponsor a tee or get more information call Twin Creeks at 815-672-4220. Donations can be sent to John Washko, 1619 N. 1590th Rd., Streator, IL, 61364. The group is a 501c3 organization.
Coalition at Cruise Night
The Streator Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition will be in front of Hombakers Auto at Main and Sterling streets for Cruise Night on Saturday.
They will be face painting and passing out balloons that read "Drugs don’t fly with me."
The Elks anti-drug trailer will also be present with displays and messages. The coalition is looking for volunteers to help and possibly dress up as Elroy the Elk starting at 6 p.m.
The Ottawa Police Canine Unit currently has fifteen working dogs in service. Each dog is thoroughly tested before being accepted into the program and is expected to perform at a high level each and every day they come to work.
Often police officers, as do members of the public, find themselves in harmful situations. Our service dogs provide an additional level of protection to our officers and the public when called upon to apprehend offenders. Our German Shepherds are trained for the most physically demanding tasks expected of a police dog:
- they locate lost or missing people;
- track wanted persons and potentially dangerous individuals; and
- are called upon to provide support during tactical operations.
The Ottawa Police also has several detector dogs in service. This specialized group, mostly Labs, are trained to detect everything from controlled drugs and substances, to explosives. Although it is not as physically demanding as the German Shepherds’ tasks, detection is every bit as important for the safety of our community.
Canines provides support to all sections within the Ottawa Police Service. When they’re not busy with day to day operations, the officers and their canine partners are often seen at community events, giving everyone a chance to see the dogs in action.

Polar Bear: I come in Peace
Norbert Rosing’s striking images of a wild polar bear coming upon Tethered sled dogs in the Wilds of Canada’s Hudson Bay.
The Photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the Polar bear wandered in.
It’s hard to believe that this polar bear only needed to hug someone!
The Polar Bear Returned every night that week to play with the dogs.

Black deer are more rare than albinos..
I have never seen or heard of one of these before. What beautiful pictures.
If you love animals…this is a rare and beautiful set of pictures.
Pictures taken by RJ Verge near Beamsville Ontario Canada
Austin Forman, 11, says he’s grateful his dog Angel saved him from a charging cougar. (CBC) A boy from Boston Bar, B.C., whose golden retriever saved him from a charging cougar, says he wouldn’t be alive if his dog hadn’t stepped in.
Austin Forman, 11, was gathering firewood in his backyard at about 5 p.m. Saturday when his dog, Angel, started acting strangely.
Angel started following him to and from the woodshed, Austin said, almost as though she was checking to make sure he was OK.
Suddenly, Angel ran toward Austin and jumped over a lawn mower — right into the path of a charging cougar.
“I knew at that moment that I would have to go get help, otherwise [Angel] wouldn’t have any hope,” Austin said.
Angel, credited with saving an 11-year-old boy’s life, suffered only minor injuries. (RCMP) As Angel fought the cougar, Austin ran inside, where his mother called 911.
When the RCMP arrived on scene minutes later, they found the cougar under the back porch of the house, chewing on Angel’s neck.
An officer shot the cougar, killing it instantly.
Austin said it was the first time he’d ever seen a cougar in the yard.
“I was shocked and scared at the same time. I wasn’t expecting a cougar at all to be in our yard,” he said.
An RCMP officer shot the cougar, killing it instantly. (RCMP) “I feel very, very lucky. If it wasn’t for my dog, I don’t think I would be here.”
Austin said he now feels very differently about Angel.
“She was my best friend, but now she’s more than a best friend — she’s like my guardian now.”
Angel suffered some puncture wounds on her head, neck and one of her hind legs. Austin was not hurt.
Boston Bar is located roughly midway between Vancouver and Kamloops

Innovations (in medicine) like birth control pills, cholesterol medication, robotic limbs, and many other things, would not have happened without the possibility of big profit, said Grace Marie Turner of the Galen Institute.
“I want companies to come up with cures for Parkinson’s, cures for cancer, cures for Alzheimer’s. Unless there is a reward for them to do that, we’re not going to have those new medicines,” she said.
Some of the best, most innovative treatments and most rapidly-delivered care happens through this pursuit of profit. Even in Canada, you’ll find one area where they offer easy access to cutting edge technology.
CT scans and MRIs, hip and knee replacements: available 24 hours a day and without a wait.
“If I see a patient that’s torn a cruciate ligament in that patient’s knee, we can generally have the patient scheduled for within probably a week,” said Canadian Dr. Terri Schiller.
But you have to bark or meow to get that kind of treatment. Schiller is a veterinarian and her practice makes a profit treating cats and dogs.
Want a CT scan in Canada? Private veterinary clinics said they can get a dog in the next day. For people, the waiting list is a month.
“Many clients will come here with their pets and as they’re leaving, it’s, ‘Next time, I get sick, I want to come here. I don’t want to go to the regular hospitals,'” said Schiller.

Save a Life…Adopt Just One More…Pet!
Everyday we read or hear another story about pets and other animals being abandoned in record numbers while at the same time we regularly hear about crazy new rules and laws being passed limiting the amount of pets that people may have, even down to one or two… or worse yet, none.
Nobody is promoting hoarding pets or animals, but at a time when there are more pets and animals of all types being abandoned or being taken to shelters already bursting at the seams, there is nothing crazier than legislating away the ability of willing adoptive families to take in just one more pet!!
Our goal is to raise awareness and help find homes for all pets and animals that need one by helping to match them with loving families and positive situations. Our goal is also to help fight the trend of unfavorable legislation and rules in an attempt to stop unnecessary Euthenization!!
“All over the world, major universities are researching the therapeutic value of pets in our society and the number of hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and mental institutions which are employing full-time pet therapists and animals is increasing daily.” ~ Betty White, American Actress, Animal Activist, and Author of Pet Love
So if you have the room in your home and the love in your heart… Adopt Just One More Pet or consider becoming a Foster parent for pets… Also check out: Little Critter: Just One More Pet

Great Book for Children and Pet Lovers… And a Perfect Holiday GiftOne More Pet Emily loves animals so much that she can’t resist bringing them home. When a local farmer feels under the weather, she is only too eager to “feed the lambs, milk the cows and brush the rams.” The farmer is so grateful for Emily’s help that he gives her a giant egg... Can you guess what happens after that? The rhythmic verse begs to be read aloud, and the lively pictures will delight children as they watch Emily’s collection of pets get bigger and bigger.
