What a sad day for animal lovers and animal advocates. Today, January 29, 2016 British helicoptor pilot who was helping Tanzanian wildlife authorites find elephant poachers was gunned down by the poachers using AK-47’s. He was able to land near Serengeti National Park where he died of his gunshots/wounds before help arrived. Authorities said there is a manhunt for 3 of the poachers believed to be involved in the shooting and death of Mr. Gower. He was only 37 years of age.
Read the full story about Mr. Gower and the piece of shit elephant poachers and ivory trade f*ckers here.
PETA named Cyrus the “Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2015.” She cites an incident where her dog, Floyd, an Alaskan Klee Kai, was mauled by a coyote as the reason for becoming vegetarian. In June 2015, she posed nude for the cover of Paper Magazine with her pet pig, Pig Pig. Her instagram and Facebook pages contain numerous posts relating to animal rights and plant-based diets.
Also in 2015, Cyrus was listed as one of the nine runners-up for The Advocate’s Person of the Year.
Some of the lyrics to songs on Cyrus’ 2015 Dead Petz album reference Tibetan Buddhism, for example, The milky, milky milk / Your lips get me so wet / While I’m singing all the verses from the Tibetan Book of the Dead
Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo has a lot of beautiful & endangered animals. The true heroes are there, in ranger uniform gaurding these endangered mountain gorillas. Men like Jean Claude Kiza Vunabandi who was killed on October 25th, 2015, and 100’s more rangers there who’ve been killed defending these beautiful innocent animals in the past years.
If you get the chance, watch the 2014 documentary “Virunga”, the films motto is awesome! It is “Conservation is war”.
Famous American boxing champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley is trying to raise money to fight against dog fighting. His motto on this subject is: “I choose to fight, dogs DON’T. Dogfighting is for cowards. Don’t do it.” I love this, another here for protecting animals and animal rights!
He is fighting Ricardo Mayorga in Los Angeles on August 29, 2015. He has an auction to which the proceeds will go towards the fight for dogs rights, protection against dogfighting. Place bids on 2 VIP tickets to this fight and meet & greet with Sugar Shane himself at Charitybuzz (the current high bid is $850)
Sandy Barbabell is such a beautiful person with such beautiful intentions. She lost her own pets so now, on her spare time, she goes to the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society to read to the lonely homeless animals.
You have to love the goodness and heart that she has for having such great intentions.

With all the talk about the Yulin Dog meat festival happening now, it becomes very depressing to know this is happening in our world. I just want to note some good (great!) things that are still happening.
Rita is a tiny dog, skin and bones found in Romania by the Maoland Animal Shelter. Look at how Rita has transformed from day 1 that she was found, until the most recent photo. It’s heart-warming for sure!
Lets hope that Yulin turns out to be a success, by ending the horrific cruelest “festival” in the world.
Read the entire story and see all the pictures of Rita’s progress from day 1 til year later on their Facebook page here. Also you can donate to K-9 Angels in Romania, donate here.
