Normally I don’t like to push my own ethics especially since this blog isn’t really aimed at that but I feel this one in particular must be shared because the people face such a large challenge and they deserve support. I promise this will not become a regular thing.

The petition below is one to stop Russia from taking a backward step and allowing the slaughter of the stray animals that are in the country, animal welfare organisations, volunteers and the public have been denied an official voice in the discussions about how best to deal with the stray population and much of the legislation is kept hidden from the public. It has been show that if properly managed and followed trap, neuter/spay and release programs work better then killing and many animal rights people want to see more control in pet breeding to help decline the amount of strays otherwise the killing will have to be constant and wont make any difference anyway.
These people face a corrupt government who are far more interested in lining their pockets then in what the people want and an information black out, in many ways I feel more sorry for them then I do the poor animals as their battle seems unwinable. I really think that the people of Russia deserve help and support of anyone who has the spare time to sign their name, so I’m sharing this petition. Please visit the sight below!


Warm Fuzzy!

So everyone should know by now that I love my animals and I do spend a fair amount of my time on animal welfare efforts, which means that I hear a lot of really devastating stories of abuse and cruelty.

Then I see/hear the stuff that makes it worthwhile, this is one such story. A baby elephant is recused from what would have been a deadly fall by three people who are trained (yes kids, don’t attempt this at home) and then reunited with the mother. I do warn you at the start of the video the elephants are quite distressed but there is nothing graphic and has a very beautiful and happy ending 🙂
