Fur-Ever Wild, a wolf fur farm owned by Terri Petter located in Lakeville, Minnesota is attempting to open a petting zoo in Deadwood, South Dakota but has met opposition due to concerns over mistreatment of animals and the belief her zoo is nothing but a front for her fur farm.

According to a deposition unrelated to the opening of the petting zoo, Petter has admitted to breeding captive wolves in addition to other animals and killing them for their fur. The deposition is available to the public and excerpts have been posted online here.

Terri Petter is currently facing a lawsuit filed by her neighbors in Eureka Township over safety and health concerns.

The product of intensive research and compelling writing by Horwitz over a period of seven years, War of the Whales tells the story of NRDC’s 20-year legal battle, alongside marine biologist Ken Balcomb, to discover and rein in the classified program for development of high intensity military sonar systems used by the Navy in the detection of enemy submarines. Although the…

Seal Hunt 2015   Leave a comment

SHAME ON YOU, CANADA!!!

Alexandra´s Animal Awareness Blog

Many of you have probably signed petitions or campaigned against the slaughter of the seals this year. Sadly, this gruesome “tradition” of murdering the youngest seals for their beautiful coats is still being done.

The Humane Society of the United States has given this update:

“This year’s hunt started slowly, with only one quarter as many boats as last year setting out for the ice floes. Unfortunately, within a few days the hunt began, and we began recording.

Although 27,000 seals have been killed so far this year, 42,000 were killed in the same time frame last year — and 77,000 in as many days in 2013. The sealers know that the images we document are shutting their industry down. Often, they simply stop hunting when they see us — our presence saves lives.

Tal Danino: We can use bacteria to detect cancer (and maybe treat it)   Leave a comment

Possible break-through in liver cancer research…

Emilio Cogliani

Liver cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to detect, but synthetic biologist Tal Danino had a left-field thought: What if we could create a probiotic, edible bacteria that was “programmed” to find liver tumors? His insight exploits something we’re just beginning to understand about bacteria: their power of quorum sensing, or doing something together once they reach critical mass. Danino, a TED Fellow, explains how quorum sensing works — and how clever bacteria working together could someday change cancer treatment.
