Animal Rights: The Guide

On Jeff Corwin's 100 HEARTBEATS

Animal Person

I know he's a conservationist, therefore I know he will advocate for "managing" the "resources" that are sentient nonhumans. And of course that premise is only possible because the animals (and everything else on the planet) are our "resources." That depends largely on us, our priorities, and our allocation of resources. We can stop using animals and "allocate resources" to educate Homo sapiens worldwide to change their relationship to the animals around them.

Canada to Push Seal Hunt Agenda at G-7

Critter News

Canada needs to stop exploiting its natural resources and move into a more sophisticated type of economy. The Canadian government is so damn stubborn on this issue. The second half of the article deals with their attempts at pushing that damn seal hunt. Is it THAT much a part of its economy? You'd think they were a developing nation with nothing else to offer.

Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird.

Sea Lions Shot Near Seattle

Critter News

Of course, will be there sufficient resources expended to catch the killers? This is in our own backyard. Total cowards. I hope they're caught because they could face a 50 thousand dollar fine. The deaths are a violation of the Marine Mammals Act and, because it’s a protected species, the shooting death of a Steller sea lion also violates the federal Endangered Species Act.

Still, what an awesome resource. You can do a name search on to see if there is any information in their database. But remember, "all individuals are innocent until proven guilty. This search is intended to be used only as a guide, and it should be remembered that there may be instances where two people live in the same town with the same or similar names."
