Critter News

She's supposedly a vegetarian and is friends with Walk the Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix who is a huge animal rights activist and vegan. I don't know what she's going to do with it, but at least she'll stop carrying it. I still don't understand what she was doing. She knew it was an animal skin.and she spent $4,000 on it? CRAZY! PETA is very happy. california python entertainment exotic skins snakes

University of Arizona Gets Grant for Animal Lab

Critter News

The University of Arizona College of Medicine won a $15 million federal stimulus grant to build a facility for research animals in downtown Phoenix. It will be located next to the planned health sciences education building at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. Another Arizona story! They are certainly on the animal research kick. From the Arizona Daily Star.

DMX Back in Jail

Critter News

But, he failed to appear in court Friday morning, which prompted a Phoenix judge issue a bench warrant for his arrest. Seems he has a hard time making court dates. DMX is facing drug-possession, identity-theft and animal-cruelty charges. He was due in court last week for a status hearing on his upcoming trial related to the aforementioned charges.

"Earthlings" Available as Audio Book

Critter News

"Earthlings" is a film about animal abuse narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. The film, which is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix and features music by platinum-selling recording artist Moby, would take another six years to complete because of the difficulty in obtaining footage within these industries. I've never watched it, but heard it talked about on a vegan podcast. It's supposed to be so intense, it turns people into vegans (Ellen DeGeneres for one.)

What Birders Dream About?

10,000 Birds

I mean, IDing it as a, let’s say, Rosy-faced Phoenix , would have been perfectly correct for a dream. A Common Quail was calling from a small patch of greenery, across the mostly empty car park.

Collective Arts Brewing: Jam Up Passion Fruit & Peach

10,000 Birds

But if you’re heading south in the coming weeks, Jam Up is certainly a good beer to have on hand if the mercury starts creeping in to the 70s down in Miami or Phoenix. As we near the end of January, we enter the peak of the winter “snowbird” season.

Organizations Putting Animals First

4 The Love Of Animals

PAC 911: Phoenix Animal Care Coalition. In the fast-paced world of today, it seems people are always on the go. Between running errands, working late and worrying about the bottom-line, it’s no wonder our four-legged and winged friends so often go overlooked and neglected. Thankfully, there are some organizations out there that make it their business to look after and care for our animal counterparts.

Arizona, or Central Mexico?

10,000 Birds

You fly to Phoenix, or Tucson, rent a car (or ride a bike cross-country, if you are Noah Strycker), drive to the tiny towns of Patagonia and Sierra Vista, and voila! I got back into birding less than a decade ago, long after moving to Mexico in 1983.

Cholla Birds

10,000 Birds

On this occasion the biggest draw was the Curve-billed Thrasher that was nestbuilding in a cactus beside the path at the Lost Dutchman State Park , just outside Phoenix. The internet appears to have nearly as many people getting caught up with Cholla Cacti as it has cute kittens doing funny stuff. It almost qualifies as a genre in itself.

Rescue Spotlight: Kitten Rescue

4 The Love Of Animals

Previous events have featured live entertainment from the Phoenix Projekt Fire Dancers, Kodama Taiko Drummers, The Panache Orchestra, and various film presentations about Kitten Rescue. Kitten Rescue is a wonderful animal rescue organization! Founded in 1997, it has become one of the largest animal rescue groups in Los Angeles. They are non-profit, and they are totally volunteer run! They have had truly great success in finding loving new homes for unwanted cats and kittens.

From the Animal Rights Action Network re: Greyhounds

Animal Person

Check out Earthlings , the award winning video narrated by Hollywood actor Joaquin Phoenix. Brief commentary follows this e-mail I received regarding greyhounds, animal rights and Ireland. Dear ARAN Members, I remember as a young child throwing stones and sticks at a terrified greyhound that slept in a back shed a few blocks from where I live.

Actually a the spirit of death and rebirth in the Marvel Universe, Jean served as the host for the Phoenix on several occasions, as did her daughter, often punctuating times when Jean died or was reborn.

Arizona in Summer: It Ain’t All Hummers

10,000 Birds

So, I flew into Phoenix, Lovebird Central, and three hours after I got off the plane had a lovebird in my binoculars, at Encanto Park. Finding the lovebirds so easily meant that I had time to bird Phoenix and, at the suggestion of my friend Allison, a Phoenix birder and sculptor, I spend time at the Desert Botanical Garden early the next morning (Phoenix, I discovered, is hot, and even early evening was over 100 degrees.)

Quintas das Arcas: Bicudo Vinho Verde (2017)

10,000 Birds

At the time, I had just begun birding seriously and I remember questioning whether this peculiar bird with its outlandish crest was even an actual species, rather than some birdlike being of myth and legend like the phoenix or gryphon.

Birding Flagstaff: A Green Detour

10,000 Birds

The woodpeckers and scenery alone make it well worth the trip up north from Phoenix. After nearly a week of traveling through Arizona’s very dry southeastern corner, I decided to make a detour to Flagstaff for a change of pace, a change of scenery, and a chance at seeing an assortment of birds more typical of the Great Basin than the Sierra Madre of Mexico.

Animal Ethics

Lesley Lee Phoenix, Jan. To the Editor: “ Company’s Record on Treatment of Beef Is Called Into Question ” (front page, Dec. 31): Would the average American have believed that hamburgers were treated with ammonia to remove salmonella and E. coli (or, in many cases, not remove them)? An earlier article recounted an E. coli outbreak traced to Cargill (“ The Burger That Shattered Her Life ,” front page, Oct.

Water Worries—How We're Drugging Other Species

Animal Ethics

Orlando; Dallas; and Phoenix have tested positive for an array of pharmaceuticals — analgesics, antibiotics, antidepressants, antihistamines, anti-hypertension drugs and anti-seizure medications. People used to worry that water fluoridation programs were part of a Communist plot. Today, people have to worry about much more than fluoride in their water.

I and the Bird #149

10,000 Birds

Perhaps it will rise like the proverbial phoenix, once again new and exciting as it leverages whatever format we will adopt next to aggregate outstanding content. All good things, it is said, must come to an end. Of course, we know that so much of what thrills and inspires us survives on a much longer timeline than we ourselves do. Seasons may come and go, blossoms bloom and wither, warblers arrive in full throat only to depart in traveling drab, but still nature abides.

Collaborative List – August 2017

10,000 Birds

9 beats, birded 9 countries this month; Belize , Guatamala , Costa Rica, UK, Iran, USA, Greece, Australia and Mexico. They submitted 144 checklists, noting 628 species adding 72 to the year’s running total bringing it to 1890. The western hemisphere’s pasting last year has been reversed as it currently out-scores the eastern hemisphere by 1210 to 746. This month dealt a humiliating blow to us easterners as we went down 537 to 105. Come on the Orientals, we are still in this!
