Murder most foul!

This Sandhill Crane family was near our house here in the Forest a few years ago. Picture credit: Walkingfox   There was no intention to write today, it is a Holiday weekend, everyone is already at the Beaches here and happily spending time relaxing with family. Alas, not so for those who tuned into the local […]

Help us stop this madness

NO MORE ORPHANS IN FLORIDA~   This will be short and ugly/ bitter. Today many, many times, they have been blasting all over our local news about the impending, not their words, Black Bear Hunt again in the Fall. Numbers  were given, with absolutely no evidence to support how these numbers were arrived at however, 4350 Black Bears […]

A River Otter Rescue

River otters,  (not the ones in the story):  Lontra Canadensis Picture credit: Dmitry Azovtsev   This morning there was a sweet story on our local TV news about three tiny river otter babies who were rescued recently and right now are fighting for their lives. It was disappointing that after spending  most of the day calling […]

It Is Over!

A beautiful Black Bear Cub. Will we ever see another one? Picture credit: Unknown   Score Scott and Company ONE, Florida Black Bears  Zero! I had to compose myself before writing this, it took some time. Yesterday in Tallahassee, Judge Reynolds, who I am reasonably sure was appointed by Scott, said that the FWCC had every right and indeed, every responsibility to order […]

Gone is Forever

A Green Sea Turtle Hatchling Photo credit: Manuel Heinrich Emha   As someone who has in the past,  been  fond of deep-fried shrimp, as of today, it is off of my menu, forever! I try very hard to be a vegetarian, but alas, shrimp was a guilty weakness, but now, no more. In my mail this morning was […]

Double Entendre or Controlled Florida Bear Hunting

And coming soon to Florida! Picture credit: William A. Troyer – US Fish and Wildlife Service   In the little publicized, poorly defined FFWS meeting in Jacksonville yesterday, not much was really accomplished or confirmed about the plan to renew Black Bear hunting in this state. We still do not really know exactly how, when, where or what is going […]

We Are Their Only Hope

          Brown Pelican, Black Bear cub and Rhinos   It has been entirely too long since I have been able to share any news about wildlife with all of you, so today’s posting will address several issues, I apologize and hope that you have a big pot of coffee nearby~ To begin this morning,  and it […]

Hacked and Back!

Breanna and me at Flagler Beach.   Yes, I have been away. But the reason was entirely out of my hands. Dealing since October with biopsies, surgeries and weekly trips to Gainesville for melanomas was a piece of cake compared to the past five weeks. This time it is all mental stress. If you are here, it is […]

No More!

Tilikum “performing” at Sea World Orlando Picture credit:  David R. Tribble   Today, I am both delighted and beyond proud, to be a part of a group of people, a Global Community that  took on the Giant Sea World, and according to our local news here this  morning, has likely brought the Giant to its […]

Animal Independence Day

Only death awaits him. Bull fighting still today remains popular in many parts of the world. Picture credit: Wikipedia   Today is Independence Day in America. It is a day which gives us all a sense of pride in how much we have achieved since we became an Independent Nation. Over the past few hundred years we […]

Dolphin Defense

A Dolphin group in Xcaret, Mexico Picture credit:  Truncatus   Today is feel good Sunday, so in Honor of this day of positive  thinking, here is a  feel good story. Do you need or want,  yet another reason to fight for and defend wild animals? Is it just me, or do Dolphins always look happy and like they […]

It’s A Baby Shower

         A small example, (not actual) of the many kinds of animals that this Wildlife Hospital rehabilitates every year. An owl, a hatchling turtle, a fawn and a gopher tortoise – (Our resident tortoise Harriet) Picture credits: Baby turtle – Manuel Heinrich   OK,  who doesn’t love a baby shower? But for this one,  you can leave […]

We Must Speak Even Louder

Wild Orcas as they were meant to be,  free and hunting in the Norwegian Sea. Picture credit: Wolfgang Hägele   Yesterday in California,  more than a million voices, via their signatures on a petition, were  raised up against the continuing captivity of  Orcas at Sea World San Diego, but they simply could not compete with those of […]

Because this is America and this is how we work~

The Constitution of the United States Of America: Public Domain   A WP friend sent me some links yesterday that he thought I might find interesting. He knows that I am passionate about  animals and their safekeeping on this Planet and wondered if this might be something I would want to do a story about it, or at least to be made […]

God Hears~

Picture credit and kindly lent by:   Deby Dixon photography   Just when it seemed that nothing could stop the endless Global human brutality against animals, a tiny miracle has just happened. The slaughter of Yellowstone Bison has been stopped, for now. Are you listening God, you surely must be? […]

There, but for the Grace of God?

Daniel Andreas San Diego Picture credit: Unknown   On our news this morning was the story of a very dangerous suspect, being sought by the FBI in Hawaii, for some bombings in California. Well, you know that they had my undivided attention, as soon as I heard the words animal activists and bombings used in the […]

Baby Bird Boom~

A Baby Burrowing Owl Picture credit: Adamantios   It’s spring in Florida and the babies are just bustin’ out all over. There are celebrations everywhere here, with so many  places to go and join in on the excitement and have fun in the beautiful Florida sunshine! Florida is without a doubt, home to some of the […]

Saving Sharks~

A Nurse Shark Picture credit: Joseph Thomas   With every story written, I read your words, I feel your pain, it is my pain as well. Like me, you suffer through every terrible bit of news about who and what is being done daily, to  innocent animals all over the world, and as one of […]

Withering Whales

A Long-finned pilot whale spyhopping Picture credit:  Barney Moss   An update to this story The news is worse yet today, even more Whales have been found dead and again their stomachs were empty, but the thing that is most disturbing is the fact that these whales normally  live in very deep waters and that they are probably coming […]

Paul’s Pelicans

The Paul Kroegel Memorial in  Sebastian, Florida Picture credit: Ebyabe   Like many of you, I am sure, my Ancestors came to America from so many places. One of them was my Grandfather who was from Prussia,  a place that no longer exists and is now called Germany. At home,  he primarily spoke in German to […]
