Lame News Story!

Critter News

So, I click on this story because the link says no pets were lost on the US Airways flight that went down in the Hudson. Great, right? Makes it sound like they were rescued right? Well, no pets were lost because there were no pets on the flight in the first place. The airline does not accept pets in the cargo.

Slow News Day at ALF?

Critter News

A canary liberated in Mexico! When we had happened to be passing down the street and we saw a cage with this individual inside, we jumped the fence and we carried away the canary in his cage. Get that? They "have not sabotaged any institution or company", but they did free a small yellow bird.

CBS News Runs Series on Factory Farms

Critter News

This occurred a week or so ago. Katie Couric did a story on the use of antibiotics on factory farms in the US and the potential harm to humans. Unfortunately, I missed this series as we don't watch network television. A friend of mine said it was quite good. Here is an article about the series. And, of course, the focus is on the impact on humans.

Yet More Good News for Project Treadstone

This one's more like Good News for Mary Martin. I received a call yesterday from a woman who started a coalition for homeless cats. She said her Trapper Man could go to the Project Treadstone site--last night and this morning--and trap up to 10 cats that she would bring to Pahokee. Can you imagine? Eleven times even one adds to the problem!
