Montana Issues Over 6000 permits to Hunt the Last 625 Remaining Wolves

There’s is going to be some blood… On the hunters’ side. Indeed, in Montana, there is a 1:10 (wolf : hunter) ratio and 6.000 want to shoot at least one.
wolf, wolf photo, wolf hunt, more hunt permits than wolves in montana, wolf hunt in Montana, montana wants to exterminate wolf, wolf extermination in Montana, save the wolf in Montana, Would You Pay $19 To Kill a Wolf?, absurd: 625 wolves left in Montana, over 6000 permits to hunt them issue, This year, the fee for a license to kill a wolf in the state of Montana was dropped to only $19, , wolf in Montana, montana wolf in danger, Would you pay $19 to kill a wolf? In Montana 6'000 people just did, kill wolf in montana, montana wolf hunt, hunting montana, montana wolf huntingWould you pay $19 to kill a wolf? In Montana 6’000 people just did. And only 600 wolves are remaining!

How is this possible! They want to exterminate wolfs in Montana! Indeed, this state issued over 6000 permits at 19$ piece (ridiculous) to hunt the last 625 remaining wolves in the state and loosened regulations governing hunting of the animals (5 wolves per hunter and extended period of hunt).

If only 2.1% of hunters issued a permit this year reach their bag limit, the wolf will disappear from Montana altogether. As wolves are pack animals, a single hunter will likely be able to kill several wolves in a single trip.

In contrast, the neighboring Wyoming has cut the number of wolves that may be killed in half to protect them from over-hunting.

The Caribbean Sees a Giant Sea Turtle Comeback

Repeating Islands

turtle.best471

The good news is that leatherback turtles are making a comeback in regions that have implemented conservation laws, such as Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Florida, Guyana, and Suriname. However, they still need protection in most areas of the Caribbean, Asia, and the Eastern Pacific. As a follow-up to my co-blogger’s previous post on this topic, Sea turtles make comeback in Caribbean, I would like to add a few spectacular photos of these magnificent creatures.

[. . .] While Trinidad supports some 80 percent of total leatherback nesting in the Caribbean, with a population of some 15,000 females laying eggs every two years, the turtles are also flourishing in other spots around the region. In northern Guyana, leatherbacks have become the most abundant marine turtle species instead of the rarest one as it was in recent decades. In neighboring Suriname, the creatures’ numbers have jumped tenfold, according to a 2007 assessment…

Earthlings est un film documentaire américain de Shaun Monson sorti en 2005 ,la réalisation a nécessité cinq années de travail et d’investigations
Le changement est inévitable
Qu’on le fasse nous même
Ou que la nature elle même nous y oblige
Le moment est venu pour chacun d’entre nous de reconsidérer nos habitudes alimentaires
Nos traditions
Nos styles de vie
Et surtout notre façon de penser
« Toute vérité passe par trois stades :
En premier lieu on la ridiculise
En deuxième lieu on s’y oppose violemment
Enfin on l’accepte comme si elle allait de soi. »

Formosan Clouded Leopard Declaired Extinct

 

Clouded Leopard Declared Extinct in Taiwan

The Formosan clouded leopard, a clouded-leopard subspecies native to Taiwan, is now extinct, according to a team of zoologists.

“There is little chance that the clouded leopard still exists in Taiwan,” zoologist Chiang Po-jen told Taiwan’s Central News Agency (CNA). “There may be a few of them, but we do not think they exist in any significant numbers.”

Zoologists from Taiwan and the United States have looked for the animal on and off since 2001, to no avail. To see if any of the animals remained, the researchers set up about 1,500 infrared cameras and scent traps in the Taiwanese mountains but found nothing.

Now, the only one left in the country is a stuffed specimen at the National Taiwan Museum, zoologist Liu Jian-nan told CNA. There are two live clouded leopards at Taipei Zoo, but they are an imported subspecies from Southeast Asia.

The range of clouded leopards (Neofelis nebulosa) spans from the hills of the Himalayas to Southeast Asia to China. The animals are known for the patches on their fur that resemble clouds. They also sport fangs larger than those of any other feline.

In 2006, research revealed that clouded leopards found in the Sunda Islands of Southeast Asia — which which include Borneo, Java, Sumatra and Bali — were a separate species, now known as Sunda clouded leopards (Neofelis diardi).

Formosan clouded leopards, which were not thought to be a separate species, have been driven to extinction by habitat destruction and illegal hunting for their skin and bones.

THE PRICE OF A CIRCUS SEAT

Kudos to Netherlands, Greece, Bolivia, soon the UK. What about the rest of us?

THE ANIMAL SPIRITS

THE PRICE OF A CIRCUS SEAT

Dragged, kicking and screaming

to the circus we go

we once walked proudly,

freely for miles and miles each day

with our families

to whom we bond deeply

babies spending their entire lives

by the sides of loving mothers

we long for this life

that will never again be

for we are now

captive entertainers

circus elephants are we.

*

Our tiny baby elies

are torn from us

and forced

in the most inhumane ways imaginable

to be broken

beginning with the breaking of our bodies

followed by the breaking of our spirits

our terror is ignored

as our legs are bound

we are stretched out

slammed to the ground

gouged with bull-hooks

and shocked with electric prods

we cry, scream out

and struggle desperately to remain upright

looking deeply into the eyes of our tormentors

searching

for a compassionate face that might save us

the response is …

Orangutan Outreach Photo — What’s At Stake in Indonesia

The Standoff  Orangutan Outreach

(Photo Credit: Orangutan Outreach. Copyright 2012. All rights reserved. No use whatsoever without the explicit written permission from the copyright holder.)

I do some pro bono legal work for Orangutan Outreach, but I’ve also adopted an orphaned/displaced orangutan (or two) through this organization. They do some great work helping to “protect orangutans in their native habitat while providing care for orphaned and displaced orangutans until they can be returned to their natural environment. Orangutan Outreach seeks to raise and promote public awareness of orangutan conservation issues by collaborating with partner organizations around the world.”

Here’s a great photo that we just registered for copyright. It’s called, “The Standoff,” and it shows the gentle and sometimes humorous personalities of these precious animals, who also share some 97% of our own human DNA.

How can you look at this and do nothing about the palm oil scourge that is destroying so much of Indonesia…
