Wildlife Refuges, Not Hunters’ Playgrounds   Leave a comment

Once again, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) wants to turn even more wildlife refuges into playgrounds for hunters and other “consumptive users” of wild animals.

The U.S. National Wildlife Refuge System includes 550 national wildlife refuges, thousands of waterfowl protection areas and four marine national monuments, totaling more than 150 million acres. Despite being called “refuges”, more than half of all national wildlife refuges are already open to hunters, trappers and anglers.

Consumptive users also have millions of acres of public and private lands outside the refuge system available to them to pursue their frivolous and violent activities of “recreational” trophy hunting and fishing, and trapping for fur. They should not be allowed in refuges, which often are the last remaining places for animal species already struggling for survival.

Furthermore, as the USFWS’s own 2011 survey…

Wildlife Vet or Rehabber Needed ASAP   Leave a comment

Exposing the Big Game

Today I received this message and photos from a friend in need who lives in rural Oregon:

IMG_1170

“F-ing bow hunters. I took this pic in my backyard minutes ago. Arrow sticking out his back, bleeding. How do I help him?! Do you know anyone who works with wildlife? This buck spent the entire summer with me….I can’t stop shaking. ”

Desperate to help the poor deer and hoping to find help getting the arrow removed, the friend had called the game department, who told her it wouldn’t be safe to tranquilize the deer. Next she reached a vet, who said she was in luck because a wildlife vet was visiting and that they would come over and see what they could do. Well, they never showed up! Here are some of the posts she made throughout the day:

“He’s laying down surrounded by the other bucks, does and fawns.  It seems as though they…

LOLO – What appeared to be a white wolf threatening a Lolo resident’s horses on Sunday was really something else.

“It turned out to be a wolf-dog hybrid,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wolf biologist Liz Bradley said on Wednesday. “It looked very wolfy, but it was neutered.”

The landowner shot and killed the dog after seeing it eyeing his horses Sunday morning. Bradley said she also got reports from a resident in Florence of a similar animal chasing her house cat up a tree.

“It’s a concern if somebody is releasing hybrids in the area,” she said. “Sometimes they can be more troublesome than wolves. They come a lot closer…

My First Animal Cruelty Case   Leave a comment

Animal Blawg

ALDF Angelique Vita Rivard

A few weeks ago I had the unique opportunity, as an intern for the Westchester CountyDistrict Attorney’s Office, to work on an animal cruelty case. Unfortunately, not unlike other counties, the assistant district attorneys (ADAs) and police officers who work in Westchester see their fair share of animal cruelty cases. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Westchester County (SPCA) is usually at the forefront of these cases. Still, it is unusual for an animal cruelty case to be taken out of local court and handled by the Westchester County ADAs or for it to actually go to trial. So, as a young law student with a passion for animal welfare, I was fortunate to be able to assist the Westchester County ADA on an animal cruelty case that was headed for trial.

The Facts. Briefly, here are some of the facts…

Japan dolphin-killing town to open marine park, serve dolphin meat   Leave a comment

Our Compass



SourceThe Raw Story
By Agence France-Presse

The Japanese town made infamous by the Oscar-winning documentary “The Cove”, will open a marine mammal park where visitors can swim with dolphins, but will not end its annual slaughter, an official said Monday.

The town of Taiji has begun researching a plan to section off part of a cove and turn it into a place where people can swim and kayak alongside small whales and dolphins, Masaki Wada told AFP.

But, Wada insisted, far from having caved in to pressure from conservationists who want an end to an annual hunt that turns waters red with blood, the project was aimed at helping to sustain the practice.

“We already use dolphins and small whales as a source of tourism in the cove where dolphin-hunting takes place,” he said.

“In summer swimmers can enjoy watching the mammals that are released from a partitioned-off space,”…

110 Wolves Have Been Killed After Day 8 Of Hunting Season   1 comment

Exposing the Big Game

http://news.wpr.org/post/110-wolves-have-been-killed-after-day-8-hunting-season

By Chuck Quirmbach

The Department of Natural Resources says that as of Wednesday morning, 110 wolves have been killed in the wolf hunting and trapping season.

The season just started last week. Last year, 117 wolves were killed during the entire two month season. DNR official Tom Hauge says the faster pace of this year’s harvest remains a bit of a mystery.

“We really don’t have any good ideas as to why that is,” says Hauge. “But the trappers are out in large numbers this year and are having some good success.”

Most of the 110 wolves killed this year, were first caught in traps. Two people concerned about the possibility of using dogs to hunt wolves testified before the DNR Board today. Dogs are banned from the wolf hunt until December 2.

Numbers down for antelope, pheasant hunting near Havre   Leave a comment

http://www.greatfallstribune.com/article/20131024/LIFESTYLE0506/310240011/Numbers-down-antelope-pheasant-hunting-near-Havre?nclick_check=1

Oct. 23, 2013

Overall hunting numbers were down, but hunters took more of some upland birds and waterfowl in the Havre area during the weekends of Oct. 12-13 and Oct. 19-20, according to numbers gathered from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 game check station outside Havre.

“Over the first two weekends of the season, harvest for most species has been down,” said FWP Havre-area wildlife biologist Scott Hemmer. “Antelope numbers and licenses have remained low since the winter of 2010-11, and this fact is reflected in the check station harvest being down 92 percent from the long-term average. Most antelope hunters reported having to hunt harder to find animals, but most have reported good horn growth in the bucks they did find and harvest this year.”

The general antelope season opened Oct. 12, as did pheasant season.

Pheasant harvest has been down slightly from last year, and…

NY bans boar hunting   Leave a comment

Exposing the Big Game

By Associated Press

October 23, 2013

ALBANY — New York wants to head off a potential rampage by wild, Eurasian boar by banning their import and use in so-called “canned hunts.”

Gov. Cuomo signed a bill on Tuesday that outlaws hunting Eurasian boars, now done in fewer than 20 commercial hunting facilities statewide.

The new law prohibits not just hunting, but importing and breeding the animals and releasing them into the wild. They can weigh up to 300 pounds. By 2015, possession of a Eurasian boar will be a crime.

The effort is intended to end the destruction of farmland by boars and their threat to pets. They’re considered an invasive species and have created havoc in Southern states, where they go by the names razorbacks, Russian boars, and feral swine.

The Buffalo News reported the wild boar populations are growingimagesCALYDLG2 mostly because of hunting preserves that attract hunters with…
