"Wolves: They don't want to kill livestock, frighten people or turn into a horror movie creature at midnight! They just want to survive! It's their world too!!!" - Friends of Animals
Two tigers went swimming for the first time after being rescued from a life of filth and neglect. Tiger sisters Carli and Lily were living in a former exotic animal enclosure in upstate New York that had become rundown and neglected. The International Fund for Animal Welfare rescued the tigers and took them to Safe Haven, a secluded wildlife sanctuary and rehabilitation facility in a remote part of Nevada. Wildlife rescue operator Kelli Donithan was part of the team rescuing the tigers and made a trip to Nevada to see them for the first time in nearly a year as they were introduced to their new pools.
Making a Killing by Gareth Patterson
In this, his seventh book, Gareth targets the ugly world of trophy hunting in Southern Africa and in particular the growing "Canned lion hunting" industry. "Canned lions" are captive bred animals, sometimes hand reared, which are confined in fenced areas for wealthy clients to shoot. The lions may even be drugged to make the killing even easier.
Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.
