Changing Alaska

Denali, the Great One! Picture credit: Nic McPhee from Morris, MN, USA   President Obama will be in Alaska today for an Arctic Global Climate Summit. He is the first US President to visit the Arctic while still in office. His primary objective is likely to shore up support for climate change programs. But another more […]

Night Lights~

The night lights of the Empire State Building in New York City, the stunning ones are linked below! Picture credit: GK 12   When I saw this yesterday, it literally took my breath away and I knew that I would be sharing it with all of you as soon as we got home this morning~ Yes, […]

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 […]

Bison and Bears, the connection~

Wood Bison in Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta, Canada Picture credit:  Laura Kaupas.   As you may have noticed, there has been a two month gap in postings here. The reason is that my heart has been broken over the imminent approval of Hunting our beautiful Florida Black Bear. The final, fateful decision is expected in […]

Not Extinct~

              A Galapagos Tortoise  Picture credit: Matthew Field        A Sierra Nevada Red Fox  Picture credit: NPS   Extinction is a dirty, ugly word and usually we, the two-leggeds are to blame, but this week is a time to celebrate, for two rare and exciting sightings have caused great joy around the Globe. This post is about two extremely rare and endangered creatures […]

Deadly Silence

Hide baby, you’re safe, for now! Picture credit: MWanner   Try to picture this scene. You are strolling along a path in the lovely, tranquil Ocala Forest of Central Florida, walking with your wife/husband and children, when suddenly without warning, you are shot, perhaps killed. There had not been a sound. So, how did this tragedy happen […]

We Are All One America

Staff of President Clinton’s One America Initiative, the Initiative on Race Picture credit: Public Domain   Watching the returns for Florida last night was a mixed blessing. Most importantly to us, Amendment One passed with 75% of the voters in this state approving it. And thankfully, the elections are over and the dirty nasty commercials […]

Enough Already!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I HATE Politics, all Politics! So for me to be driven, forced and bullied into creating a NEW Blog about this abhorred, loathed and despised subject, something BIG must have happened. Well it did. It seems to me that we, the public, the common people, the ones who pay […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bison Butcherers

A beautiful Bison, still wearing its winter coat, taken many years ago.   As some of you may know, I have recently started another WP Blog named tahtonka. It was created for two reasons, one to deflect the often intense pain from frequent postings,  (like today’s story) on this Blog and second to reflect my education and passion for […]

Despicable Deeds

Image: Public Domain   As an impressive list of Global Heads of State assemble in  London to discuss the horror inflicted on wildlife worldwide, our own country has just announced its own set of new rules to play by in dealing with this, or our National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking. What is remarkable is that it is being […]

A Diverse Direction~

My great great grand parents: Mary Elizabeth Brummage and John Nugent   For nearly one year, as of March 10th, I have written about and anguished over the Global abuse and indefensible treatment of innocent animals. It has been, to say the least, an often  difficult path to follow for me and I am sure frequently, for many […]

Captivating Clydesdales

Clydesdales at a St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston Picture credit:  Paul Keleher   This weekend is, just  in case you have been living under a rock,  Super Bowl Sunday. So what always accompanies this annual excuse to be a couch potato and junk food junkie? The Super Bowl Ads, of course, which I prefer most […]

Evan’s Endeavor~

Evan’s proposed Merit Badge for the BSA to protect Endangered Animals Picture credit: Evan Nelsen   In my mail this morning came a delightful surprise, a petition created by a very young man with a passion for animals. He is Evan Nelsen from Minnesota and he is petitioning the  Boy Scouts of America,  to create a new Merit […]

Growing Pains

Picture credit:  U.S. Department of Energy Genome Programs   Being basically claustrophobic,  this story quickly caught my eye. This problem may only be in Florida for right now, but trust me,  it will be coming to a state near you,  eventually. Our fragile Wildlife is being shoved, pushed and run out of town by a burgeoning population explosion here and our […]

God Bless You Every One

Some gave all. Members of the 15th Airlift Wing Honor Guard at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii.   On this very important day,  Veteran’s Day, may each of us take a moment to say thank you to the bravest Humans to ever walk the Earth, the members of our United States military. But we should also […]

Peddling Poison

Our baby Breanna at four months~   As you may already know,  we have an Airedale named Breanna,  who is unashamedly,  the center of our universe. We are very careful about everything that touches her life, especially the food that she eats, which is why the news this morning was  so hard to hear. I/we know that […]

What’s For Lunch?

A Lion in Botswana, Africa   Before I begin, I wish to thank the 222+  of you fellow ” wildlife watchers ” who have elected to “Follow”  this Blog. Although this inconsequential little Blog has only been here for two months, it has had over 4,000 hits and more than 200 followers. Can I say, this is all just slightly overwhelming […]
