Vick Signs with the Philadelphia Eagles

Critter News

I used to like this team. I'll never root for them again. I guess someone did want a dog killer on their team.

Man Who Hung, Electrocuted and Beat Dogs to Death Given Courage Award by Philadelphia Eagles

Critter News

Another reason to root against the Eagles. Shame on the Eagles. Because poor Michael Vick has been through so much. Sorry but after seeing the victims that he left behind on Dog Town, I still think he's slime. It takes a special kind of callousness and brutality to treat dogs that way. This isn't a bar fight. It's not the mistakes made from being young. This is making dogs tear each other to shreds.

Low Prosecution of Bird Crime in Scotland

Critter News

And furthermore, not a single jail term has been imposed since custodial sentences were introduced in 2004 for such crimes, which are having a grave impact on the populations of some of Scotland's most iconic yet vulnerable species, including golden eagles, red kites and hen harriers. New figures show that in the past decade just 26 out of almost 300 cases of illegal poisoning and other crime directed against birds of prey in Scotland has resulted in a successful conviction.

Pahokee Opens for Project Treadstone

Animal Person

This time it's Little Black: Stay tuned also for photos of the eagle's nest down the block that has a baby! I hadn't realized how enormous eagles are; they dwarf hawks. I guess I'm about to learn more than I ever thought I'd know about eagles. What the heck is Pahokee, you ask? If you click on this map , you'll see. It's a city in Florida on our largest lake, Lake Okeechobee.

Updates and Corrections

Animal Person

As for the eagle's nest, I think all of the people who surround the nest each morning are mistaken. First, Little Black and Big Tom , one more time. . Big Tom was the guest most anxious to leave my humble abode and was returned this morning, to a ghost town of a colony, with few cats in sight. Little Black is in a large dog kennel, curled up in her litter box, going nowhere near her tasty, stinky canned food, and she will be returned tomorrow.

On Jeff Corwin's 100 HEARTBEATS

Animal Person

When I was asked if I wanted to read Jeff Corwin's 100 HEARTBEATS (Rodale 2009) I was ambivalent. I know he's a conservationist, therefore I know he will advocate for "managing" the "resources" that are sentient nonhumans. And managing means killing them, breeding them, and otherwise fiddling with their populations. This is all very unveganly, but I went for it nevertheless.
