CMTGS AND 356 POISONED ELEPHANTS

356 ELEPHANTS HAVE DIED OVER THE LAST TWO MONTHS IN BOTSWANA. ON MAY 25 169 DEAD ELEPHANTS WERE FOUND AND IN JUNE A TOTAL OF 356 ONES.

LET´S IMAGINE ALL THESE 356 ELEPHANTS WERE POISONED. WHY? WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO KILL 356 ELEPHANTS? LET´S IMAGINE CMTGS WANTED TO HURT SOMEONE WHO LOVES ELEPHANTS? LET´S IMAGINE SUCH DEVIOUS WAYS, BRIBING 4 PEOPLE FROM BOTSWANA ASKING THEM TO KILL 356 ELEPHANTS, ARE TYPICAL WAYS OF CMTGS. THESE DEVIOUS WAYS INCLUDE THE COVIT-19 SINCE CMTGS AND THE COVIT-19 ARE CLOSELY RELATED AS WELL. 

356 ELEPHANTS CANNOT COLLAPSE CHEST-FIRST WHILE WALKING OR RUNNING UNLESS THEY ARE POISONED. WHEN ELEPHANTS OR ANY OTHER ANIMALS ARE POISONED THEIR BODIES START BURNING INSIDE, AND SO THEY START WALKING OR RUNNING TO GET TO SOME RIVER WHERE THEY CAN GET SOME WATER TO DRINK TO GET SOME RELIEF FROM THE BURNING THEY ARE GOING THROUGH INSIDE THEMSELVES.

WE DO NOT BUY THE STATEMENT OF SOME CONSERVATIONISTS SAYING THE RECENT ELEPHANT MASS DIE-OFFS COULD BE NATURAL. NO MATTER HOW LOUD OR HOW MANY TIMES THEY REPEAT IT WE DO NOT BUY IT!

CHRIS THOULESS, THE FACT THAT ELEPHANT POPULATIONS GROW HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MASS DIE-OFFS. NEVER HAS SUCH AN ELEPHANT MASSACRE HAPPENED BEFORE. 

LET´S SAVE THE TIGERS, RHINOS & PANGOLINS LEFT!!

30/10/2018 CHINA DECIDED TO EASE 25-YEAR BAN ON RHINO AND TIGER PARTS. IT´S SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE TO ALLOW ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE FOR THE SAKE OF MEDICINE PURPOSES. THE BENEFITS OF TIGER BONES AND RHINO HORNS HAVE NOT BEEN PROVEN. THE LIFE OF A SINGLE RHINO OR A TIGER IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN MEDICINE. NOBODY OWNS ANIMALS. ANIMALS ARE HERE TO BE RESPECTED NOT TO BE ABUSED. 

EVERY SINGLE PERSON HERE ON EARTH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE UNBEARABLE PAIN THE FEW TIGERS AND RHINOS LEFT ARE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW. WHY ARE WE RESPONSIBLE? BECAUSE WE PASS ON  THE BRUTALITY THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE  INFLICTING ON TIGERS AND RHINOS THIS VERY MOMENT. THOSE ANIMALS ARE INNOCENT AND DO NOT DESERVE SUCH BRUTAL KILLINGS. THE NEWS ON TV ABOUT POLLUTION IN CITIES IS NOTHING COMPARED TO KILLING BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS LIKE TIGERS, RHINOS AND PANGOLINS.

WHAT IF BEHIND ALL THAT LIFTING TRADE BAN ON TIGER AND RHINO PARTS BY CHINA  WAS THERE A MEAT AND HORN ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE

ELABORATED CONSPIRACIES

 

CMTGS LOVE VICE AND LICENTIOUSNESS, AND IN ORDER TO GET THOSE THEY ACCESS POLITICS FIRST, THEN EDUCATION AND LATER ON ALL THE REST OF FIELDS. ALMOST 30 YEARS AGO WE SAW HOW RELEVANT HISTORY EPISODES WERE REMOVED FROM TEXTBOOKS AND HOW PHILOSOPHY WAS ALSO DRIVEN OUT OF THE WAY. WHY SUCH IMPORTANT SUBJECTS WERE ELIMINATED FROM SECONDARY TEXTBOOKS? LET´S IMAGINE THE REASON WHY THEY GOT RID OF SO MANY IMPORTANT HISTORY EPISODES  IN SECONDARY TEXTBOOKS WAS BECAUSE CMTGS ( WHO BECAME POLITICIANS, TEACHERS, ELECTRICIANS, SOUND TECHNICIANS, MAYORS,  DOCTORS, LAWYERS, NOTARIES AND MOLES AT THE SAME TIME AS WELL) WANTED TO HIDE WHAT THE CMTGS´ ANCESTORS HAD DONE IN THE PAST, THAT IS THEIR CRUEL KILLINGS, AND WHAT´S MORE FOR NO REASON AT ALL. LET´S IMAGINE THE REASON WHY CMTGS DECIDED TO REMOVE PHILOSOPHY FROM SECONDARY SCHOOLS WAS ALSO TO DEPRIVE YOUNG PEOPLE FROM THINKING AND THEREFORE FROM TURNING INTO COMPETENCE TO THEM IN POLITICS.

MOST TIMES THE REASONS BEHIND EVENTS ARE QUITE HIDDEN. THIS IS THE CASE OF THE SUN WHEN IT´S AT ITS ZENITH IN THE SAHARA DESERT PROPELLING TROPICAL STORMS AND HURRICANES IN THE CARIBBEAN. THE SAME HAPPENS TODAY WHEN THE KEY WORLD FACT OF IGNORING GOD FUELS THE EXPANSION OF CMTGS TRYING TO INFECT PEOPLE WITH THEIR EVIL BY MEANS OF VIOLENT PRACTICES AND JOINING OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS LIKE DAESH FOR EXAMPLE.

HYPOCRSY RUNS THE WORLD. THE FOLLOWING ARE JUST THREE EXAMPLES OF THE TONS OF THEM ANYWHERE WE LOOK AT TODAY.

THE FIRST ONE HAS TO DO WITH THE PRACTICE OF TYING BURNING TORCHES TO THE HORNS OF BULLS IN FRONT OF  CHEERING CROWDS IN WHAT IS CALLED  SPANISH “BURNING BULL FESTIVALS”. SEEING AN INNOCENT BEING TERRIFIED THE MOMENT THEY ATTACH THE BURNING TORCHES TO THE TOP OF THEIR HEADS, AND DYING SOON AFTER IN A COLLISION IS A REAL DISGRACE. IF SUCH PAIN AND HORROR BRINGS SUCH “JOY” TO PEOPLE SOMETHING IS GOING WRONG, AND HYPOCRYSY HAS TO DO WITH IT.

WE CAN FIND THE SECOND EXAMPLE IN THE NAME OF “LAND OF A MILLION ELEPHANTS” WHEN TALKING ABOUT LAOS, SINCE THEIR ELEPHANT POPULATION HAS FALLEN BY MORE THAN 75% SINCE THE 1980S DUE TO ILLEGAL ELEPHANT TRADE, SELLING THEM TO ZOOS AND OTHERS. THEREFORE WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LAOS NATIONAL SYMBOL IS ILLEGALLY TRADED COMMERCIALLY. ANOTHER REAL DISGRACE!

THIRD, ABOUT 50,000 GREYHOUNDS ARE KILLED EVERY YEAR SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY STOP WINNING. WE DON´T WANT GREYHOUND RACES, WE DON´T WANT TO SEE THEM IN TINY CAGES AND THEN BEING ABUSED. ALL THE COUNTRIES WHO SUPPORT SUCH BARBARISM SHOULD END IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO PUT AN END TO THIS UNBEARABLE HYPOCRISY WE ARE ALL SURROUNDED BY.

CMTGS DO ALL THEY CAN TO MAKE MONEY, SPECIALLY STEALING IT, STEALING DRUGS CONFISCATED ( THAT´S WHY DRUGS WILL ALWAYS BE OUT THERE ), GETTING INTO BUSINESSES AND GIVING THE WORST OF ADVICE ONCE INSIDE, SO THAT THOSE BUSINESSES GO BANKRUPT AND THEY FINALLY ARE ABLE TO GET BARGAIN PRICES , AND THROUGH TRAFFICKING, SPECIALLY HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THEIR WAY IS BASICALLY LYING 24/7. AS THEY ALSO WORK ON TV THEIR SET UPS ARE EASILY BROADCASTED AND MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE “THE NEWS” THEY WANT US TO SEE AND HEAR ABOUT. FOR INSTANCE WHEN A PROVINCE IS BEING WATCHED FOR CERTAIN REASONS AND CMTGS KNOW THEY ARE BEING CAUGHT THAT´S WHEN THEIR MALICE COMES UP AND THEY COME OUT WITH THE STRANGEST STORIES ONE CAN IMAGINE TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK THEY´RE HUMAN, AND THAT SOMETHING GOOD IS AT LEAST TOLD ABOUT THEM. THERE ARE MANY NEWS WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT OR WE HEAR MONTHS AFTER THEY REALLY TOOK PLACE, SIMPLY BECAUSE CMTGS BRIBE  THE MEDIA NOT TO BROADCAST THEM SINCE THOSE PIECES OF NEWS HAVE TO DO WITH THEIR PROVINCES AND WITH THEIR CRIMES. 

AS FOR TODAY, CMTGS ARE REALLY DESPERATE BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING UNCOVERED. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING? HERE WE GO:

1. IN PARIS ATTACKS IN 2015  MORE THAN 140 PEOPLE  WERE KILLED.

2. SAN BERNARDINO TERROR ATTACK IN CALIFORNIA ON DECEMBER 2, 2015 LEFT 14 PEOPLE DEAD AND 22 SERIOUSLY INJURED. SUCH ATTACK CONSISTED OF “ A MASS SHOOTING AND AN ATTEMPTED BOMBING AT THE INLAND REGIONAL CENTER IN SAN BERNARDINO. THE PERPETRATORS, SYED RIZWAN FAROOK ( A U.S. -BORN CITIZEN OF PAKISTANI DESCENT, WHO WORKED AS A HEALTH DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE ) AND TASHFEEN MALIK ( A PAKISTANI-BORN LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ), WERE A MARRIED COUPLE. AFTER THE SHOOTING, THE COUPLE FLED IN A RENTED SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE (SUV). 4 HOURS LATER,POLICE PURSUED THEIR VEHICLE AND KILLED THEM IN A SHOOTOUT. ACCORDING TO THE FBI´S INVESTIGATION, THE  PERPETRATORS WERE “HOMEGROWN VIOLENT EXTREMISTS” INSPIRED BY FOREIGN TERRORIST GROUPS” (WIKIPEDIA). LET´S IMAGINE FAROOK AND MALIK WERE DIRECTED BY OTHER FOREIGN TERRORIST GROUPS AND WERE RECENTLY ( ABOUT ONLY 1 MONTH BEFORE THE ATTACK) PART OF A TERRORIST MAFIA.

3. MARCH 22, 2016 BRUSSELS BOMBINGS “KILLED 32 CIVILIANS AND 3 PERPETRATORS, AND MORE THAN 300 PEOPLE WERE INJURED. THE PERPETRATORS BELONGED TO A TERRORIST CELL WHICH HAD BEEN INVOLVED IN THE NOVEMBER 2015 PARIS ATTACKS. THE BRUSSELS BOMBINGS HAPPENED SHORTLY AFTER A SERIES OF POLICE RAIDS TARGETING THE GROUP” (WIKIPEDIA).

4. ORLANDO NIGHTCLUB SHOOTING ON JUNE 12, 2016: “OMAR MATEEN, A 29-YEAR-OLD SECURITY GUARD KILLED 49 PEOPLE AND WOUNDED 58 OTHERS IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA. HE WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY ORLANDO POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS AFTER A THREE-HOUR STANDOFF. IN A 9-1-1 CALL SHORTLY AFTER THE SHOOTING BEGAN, MATEEN SWORE ALLEGIANCE TO THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC STATE OF IRAQ AND THE LEVANT (ISIL), ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI, AND SAID THE SHOOTING WAS “TRIGGERED” BY THE U.S. KILLING OF ABU WAHEEB IN IRAQ THE PREVIOUS MONTH. HE LATER TOLD A NEGOTIATOR HE WAS “OUT HERE RIGHT NOW” BECAUSE OF THE AMERICAN-LED INTERVENTIONS IN IRAQ AND IN SYRIA, AND THAT THE NEGOTIATOR SHOULD TELL THE UNITED STATES TO STOP BOMBING” (WIKIPEDIA).

5. IN NICE ATTAKS IN 2016 A TERRORIST KILLED 84 PEOPLE

6. BERLIN ONES IN 2016 ENDED UP WITH 12 PEOPLE DEAD.

7. ON 22 MAY 2017   MANCHESTER ARENA BOMBINGS  KILLED 22 PEOPLE. 

8. THURSDAY NIGHT JULY 13 2017, 2 TEENAGERS, A 15-YEAR-OLD AND A 16-YEAR-OLD, WERE ARRESTED FOR THROWING CORROSIVE SUBSTANCES TO PEOPLE´S FACES, IN A SERIES OF 5 ACID ATTACKS IN LESS THAN 90 MIN. IN LONDON TO SPREAD TERROR. THOSE ACID ATTACKS INVOLVED THE THEFT OF 2 MOPEDS. LET´S IMAGINE CMTGS PAID OFF THOSE 2 MALE TEENAGERS TO COMMIT SUCH CRIMES. SOME OF THE PEOPLE´S INJURIES WERE “LIFE-CHANGING” ONES. THAT ACID ATTACK SHOULD BE TREATED AS TERROR RELATED. LET´S IMAGINE CMTGS PAID OFF THOSE 2 TEENAGERS TO THROW ACID TO PEOPLE IN LONDON IN ORDER TO SPREAD TERROR, SINCE THAT´S EXACTLY WHAT CMTGS WANT.

9. “30 JULY 2017 TERRORISTS PLOTTED TO BLOW UP AUSTRALIAN AEROPLANE, SAYS PM MALCOLM TURNBULL. 4 PEOPLE IN CUSTODY AS AIRPORT SECURITY BEEFED UP. AUSTRALIAN SECURITY SERVICES HAVE DISRUPTED A PLOT TO BLOW  UP AN AEROPLANE, PRIME MINISTER MALCOLM TURNBULL HAS ANNOUNCED. POLICE ARRESTED 4 PEOPLE IN CONNECTION WITH THE ALLEGED PLAN. COUNTER-TERRORISM RAIDS TOOK PLACE IN SYDNEY ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON.  MR. TURNBULL SAID THEY WER “DESIGNED TO DISRUPT AND PREVENT PLANS TO UNDERTAKE TERRORIST ATTACKS IN AUSTRALIA. IT´S BELIEVED AN IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICE (IED) WAS THE INTENDED WEAPON. THESE EVENTS OVERNIGHT REMIND US THERE´S STILL THE ABILITY FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE SOPHISTICATED PLOTS AND SOPHISTICATED ATTACKS STILL REMAIN A REAL THREAT” ( INDEPENDENT .CO.UK.NEWS SUNDAY 30 JULY 2017).

10. “STRATFORD ACID ATTACK: 6 PEOPLE INJURED AT LONDON SHOPPING CENTRE ON SATURDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2017, 10:42 PM. MULTIPLE VICTIMS HAVING BEEN SPRAYED WITH ACID AT LOCATIONS AROUND THAT BUSY SHOPPING CENTRE AT STRATFORD STATION IN EAST LONDON” (THE TELEGRAPH NEWS). THAT ACID ATTACK SHOULD BE TREATED AS TERROR RELATED.

11. JULY 23 2017, AIXERROTA PAELLAS DAY IN GETXO (BIZKAIA), SOMEONE THREW KEROSENE OVER A BONFIRE CAUSING AN EXPLOSION AND 5 WOMEN WERE HURT.  LET´S IMAGINE THAT PERSON WAS PAID OFF BY CMTGS.

 12. THURSDAY AUGUST 3 2017 IN SANTUTXU (BIZKAIA) 4 CARS WERE BURNT. IT ALL STARTED WITH ONE CAR ON FIRE AND ITS FLAMES DID THE REST, BURNING THE 3 CARS NEXT TO IT.

13. THURSDAY AUGUST 3 2017  SEVERAL WRITINGS ON DONOSTI STREETS (GIPUZKOA) SAYING “TOURISTS GO HOME” CAME OUT. LET´S IMAGINE CMTGS HAD THAT TERRIBLE IDEA, PASSED IT ON  AND SOME BASQUE PEOPLE TOOK THE BAIT THINKING IT WAS A GOOD THING TO GO AFTER.

14. AUGUST 18 2017 BARCELONA´S  TERROR ATTACK ON LA RAMBLA LEFT 14 PEOPLE AND 50 INJURED. AUGUST 22 2017 WE HEARD ON THE NEWS THE YOUNGSTERS INVOLVED IN SUCH ATTACK WERE RECRUITED BY IMAM, ABDELBAKI ES SATTY. “HE´S BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN THE RINGLEADER OF THE BARCELONA ATTACK. HE LIVED AT A FLAT IN RIPOLL, AND HIS HOUSEMATE, NOURDENI ELHJI, 45, SAID ABDELBAKI DISAPPEARED JUST HOURS BEFORE A DEVASTATING EXPLOSION RIPPED THROUGH A SUSPECTED BOMB FACTORY IN A HOUSE IN ALCANAR 180 MILES AWAY. POLICE BELIEVE ES SATTY AND FELLOW PLOTTER YOUSSEF AALLAA DIED IN THE EXPLOSION IN ALCANAR. … BUT THE SURVIVING MEMBERS OF THE CELL WERE FORCED TO MOVE THEIR PLANS FORWARD WHEN THE BOMB FACTORY EXPLODED KILLING THEIR RINGLEADER” (THE TELEGRAPH NEWS). WE WERE ALSO TOLD ABDELBAKI, BESIDES BEING AN “AMAM” HE WAS ALSO A GAS BOTTLE DELIVERY MAN WHO REGULARLY TRAVELLED TO BELGIUM, AND 120 GAS CANISTERS WERE FOUND IN A HOUSE IN ALCANAR. INSIDE THE REMAINS OF THAT EXPLODED HOUSE IN ALCANAR 500 ACETONE (PEROXIDE) LITERS WERE FOUND. IT´S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER ACETONE IS USED IN DRUG TRAFFICKING LABORATORIES. LET´S IMAGINE SPANISH CMTGS HAVE DRUG TRAFFICKING LABORATORIES AND THEY ARE THE LEADERS PROVIDING THE DESPERATE ONES THEY FIND ANY COUNTRY THEY GO TO. THE DARK AUDI HE DROVE WAS ALSO IN PARIS SINCE A RADAR CAUGHT HIM FOR SPEEDING. AND NOW THE QUESTION IS: WHO GAVE ABDELBAKI,  THE GAS BOTTLE DELIVERY MAN, NEW CLOTHES AND A FAKE EXPLOSIVES BELT? LET´S IMAGINE SPANISH CMTGS ARE BEHIND IT AND EVERYTHING. 

 15. TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 5 2017, A YIHAD LEADERSHIP WAS UNCOVERED IN MOROCCO. THEIR BOSS WAS A SPANISH MAN AGED 38, WHO WAS A CHILDREN PHYSICAL EDUCATION ASSISTANT, BUT THAT JOB WAS A COVER UP FOR HIS REAL JOB WAS RECRUITING YOUNG MEN FOR DAESH. MEDIA LET US KNOW OF THAT PIECE OF NEWS WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 6.

16. THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 7 2017 IN PARIS 2 PEOPLE FROM DAESH WERE CARRYING EXPLOSIVES WHICH WERE THE SAME KIND OF EXPLOSIVES USED IN ALCANAR (TARRAGONA). THEREFORE WE KNOW SOMETHING IMPORTANT. WHAT´S THAT? WELL, LET´S IMAGINE THERE´S A SPANISH MAFIA, AND THAT MAFIA IS BEHIND DAESH AND BEHIND ALMOST ALL THE WORLD TERROR TODAY.

17. FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16 7:00 AM NORTH KOREA THREW NUCLEAR MISSILES DOWN TO JAPAN, AND LATER ON THAT SAME DAY IN ONE OF LONDON´S UNDERGROUNDS 18 PEOPLE WERE HURT DUE TO A RUDIMENTARY EXPLOSIVE ( A BUCKET BOMB INSIDE A PLASTIC BAG) LEFT IN A TRAIN. 

CMTGS CAN´T STAND THE IDEA OF THE BRAVE WOMAN REPORTING UNRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOURS, ABUSE OF POWER AND OTHER KIND OF CRIMES, AND IN ORDER TO COUNTERATTACK THIS WOMAN THEY CREATED AN ELABORATED CONSPIRACY WHICH STARTED IN 2004. CMTGS ARE FOLLOWING MAO TSE TUNG´S EXAMPLE. WHY? BECAUSE MAO TSE TUNG DID NOT STAND ANYONE DISAGREEING WITH HIM, AND ONCE A CLOSE COLLEAGUE OF HIM DID DISAGREE WITH HIM REGARDING THE KILLING OF MILLIONS OF SPARROWS MAO TSE TUNG CARRIED OUT IN 1958. MAO TSE TUNG DID SUCH HORRIBLE THING BECAUSE HE SAID SPARROWS ATE 5-7 GRAIN SEEDS EACH. THAT YEAR MAO INITIATED THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD, A MASSIVE CAMPAIGN BANNING PRIVATE FARMING AND THINKING THEY COULD DO WITHOUT SPARROWS. WHAT MAO IGNORED WAS SPARROWS HAD THE ABILITY OF GETTING  RID OF INSECTS WHO ATE THEIR  GRAIN SEEDS. IGNORING SUCH KEY FACTOR TRIGGERED AN INCREASE ON THE INSECT POPULATIONS,  AND THAT EXACTLY  WAS THE REASON BEHIND THE FAMINE WHICH FORCED PARENTS TO EAT THEIR KIDS AND THEIR KIDS TO EAT THEIR PARENTS AS WELL. SUCH FAMINE LASTED 3 YEARS AND DURING THOSE 45 MILLION PEOPLE DIED. UNBELIEVABLY THAT DISAGREEMENT WAS THE REASON OF THE START OF AN ELABORATED CONSPIRACY AGAINST MAO´S COLLEAGUE FOR 12 YEARS.

ON THE OTHER HAND, ELABORATED CONSPIRACIES ARE NOT SOMETHING NEW. THEY STARTED A LONG TIME AGO. ONE REALLY CLEAR EXAMPLE OF SUCH IS THE MASSACRE OF GERNIKA DURING THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR, WITNESSED BY ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS EUROPEAN WAR CORRESPONDENTS, G. L. STEER. G. L. STEER WAS SURROUNDED BY CMTGS. HERE ARE SOME OF HIS QUOTES WHICH EXPOSE THE PRESENCE OF SUCH CMTGS WITH ELABORATED CONSPIRACIES:

 1. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE BASQUE PEOPLE IN WAR FOR 4 PERIODS OF TIME:

1) AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 1936, FROM THE FRENCH-SPANISH BORDER.

2) JANUARY 1937, IN BILBAO.

3) DURING THE LAST FEROCIOUS OFFENSIVE BY MOLA IN APRIL, MAY AND JUNE, TO WHICH I MOSTLY REFER TO IN THIS BOOK.

4) AND FINALLY, AUGUST 1937, JUST BEFORE BASQUE PEOPLE WERE FOOLED AND HAD TO SURRENDER  AFTERWARDS.

THOSE WERE THE MONTHS DURING WHICH THE STRANGE DOCTRINES AND THEIR RESOURCES PUT BASQUE PEOPLE UNDER A LOT OF PRESSURE WINDING UP DESTROYED.”

 2. “SOME DESERTERS EXPLAINED IN  DETAIL THE DIVERSE FORCE, THE LEFT-WING OF THE BEORLEGI ARMY, WHICH ATTACKED THE MOUNTAINOUS ANGLE OF SAN MARCIAL: 550 LEGIONARIES, 450 CARLISTS, 440 CIVIL GUARDS, 400 FALANGISTS (FASCISTS). SOMEWHAT 2000 MEN, INCLUDING OFFICIALS, THAT IS, FIRST FRANCO´S ARMY, SECOND “THE NAVARROS”, THEN THE CIVIL GUARD, AND FINALLY THE NEW FASCISTS, STRANGE ORGANIZATION IN THE CLASS FIGHT, EMBEDDED ARTIFICIALLY IN THE SPANISH LIFE, WHICH HAD THOUSANDS OF FOLLOWERS, FROM WHICH VERY FEW WERE CAPABLE OF FIGHTING. THE HEADS OF THE SPANISH FALANGE RECRUITED THE SCUM OF HUMANITY: THE BEST-FOR-NOTHING ONES WERE FORCED TO PARADE WITH THEIR BLUE SHIRTS, WHILE THE STRONGEST ONES WERE TAKEN TO THE TRENCHES.” 

3. “BASQUE PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS HAD A GREAT SENSE OF MORAL AND A DEEP RESPECT FOR LAW. THEIR WORD IS A COMPROMISE AND DON´T EVER THINK OF INTERPRETING IT. MEN AND WOMEN ARE DEVOTED CATHOLIC AND PRACTICE IT. UP UNTIL 1936 BASQUE PEOPLE WERE IN CHARGE OF GETTING THINGS LOCALLY BETTER. WITH LOCAL MONEY THE BEST ROADS IN SPAIN, THE MOST MODERN TOURIST COAST PLACES, THE BEST HOSPITALS AND  SCHOOLS  FOR CHILDREN WERE BUILT. BASQUE PEOPLE WERE EXPECTED TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR PROMISES. AND ALTHOUGH IN THIS WAR MANY OF THE THINGS THE ALLIES DID AGAINST THEM, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, THE RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION, BASQUE PEOPLE WERE FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END. THEY PREFERRED TO LOSE ALL THAT WAS DEAR TO THEM, LIKE THEIR HOME, LAND, PROPERTY AND THEIR MATES. GENERAL FRANCO WAS BLAMED FOR NOT HAVING MANAGED TO DRAW THEIR ATTENTION IN HIM AND MAKE THEM PUT ASIDE THEIR LOYALTY”. 

4. “IN 1936 BILBAO WAS A PROSPEROUS TOWN. THE SHIPPING COMPANIES HAD BEEN REBUILT AND THERE WAS A GREAT DEMAND OF IRON FOR THE RE-ARMING PROGRAMS IN EUROPE. EVERYONE WAS TOO BUSY AND DID NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE HUGE WEAPONS SMUGGLING WHICH PASSED THROUGH THE PYRENEES (BETWEEN FRANCE AND NAVARRA) WHERE THE REQUETES (CARLIST MILITIA) WERE PLOTTING AGAINST THE STATE. THE PROCLAMATION OF THE WAR IN THE INCITED PLACES AROUND SPAIN FOUND BILBAO DISARMED ANF OFF-GUARD.” 

5. ” A BELL  RANG IN THE CIVIL GOVERNMENT. ALDASORO,  (MEMBER OF THE LEFT REPUBLIC. HE HELPED ESTABLISHING THE REPUBLIC AND WAS GOVERNOR OF GIPUZKOA) POWERFUL AND DOMINATING, WAS WITH ECHEVARRIA, (CIVIL GOVERNOR) AN AGEING POLITICIAN READY TO COMPROMISE, UNWILLING TO TAKE OR TO SUFFER GREAT PAINS, NERVOUS, SHREWISHLY PROTECTIVE OF HIS OWN PEACE. THE TELEPHONE WAS A NUISANCE, HE TOOK IT UP.”

– ” GENERAL MOLA  SPEAKING,”  WAS THE BALD INTRODUCTION,  ” YOU HAVE GOT TO REBEL! “

– ” HOW? ”  ASKED THE INCREDULOUS, THE DISTURBED AND TREMBLING ECHEVARRIA.

– ” WHO IS IT? ” ASKED ALDASORO IMPATIENTLY, STANDING OVER THIS SHAKY MONUMENT  OF IRRESOLUTION.

– “IT IS GENERAL MOLA IN PAMPLONA, ”  EXPLAINED ECHEVARRIA WITH HIS HAND PRESSING WET OVER THE MOUTHPIECE, WHILE THE ELECTRICAL DISCHARGES OF THE INSURGENT CHIEF GRATED INTO AIR OUT OF THE OTHER END, ” AND HE SAYS THAT WE HAVE GOT TO REVOLT .”

– ” AND YOU ASKED HIM HOW? ”  SHOUTED ALDASORO; WHO THEN BROKE DOWN AND LAUGHED GUTTURALLY, FOR THE HAS A SPANISH SENSE OF HUMOUR. ” WHY, MAN, SHOUT VIVA LA REPUBLICA! 

– ” I DON´T UNDERSTAND, GENERAL, ” ECHEVARRIA CONTINUED, TRYING TO SPIN THE MATTER OUT AND RECOVER THE SLENDER STRUCTURE OF HIS SELF-CONFIDENCE. ” WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?  WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?  REBEL AGAINST WHOM? “

-” THEN TWO VOICES SPOKE AT ONCE, ONE IN PAMPLONA AND THE OTHER IN BILBAO, AND BOTH IN TONES THAT SHOWED THEY KNEW THAT THEY WERE DEALING WITH AN IDIOT. GENERAL MOLA SAID, PRONOUNCING EACH SYLLABLE CLEARLY, ” YOU HAVE GOT TO DECLARE A STATE OF WAR!” “

” ALDASORO SEIZED ECHEVARRIA BY HIS TELEPHONE SHOULDER AND SAID MUCH LOUDER, ” CRY VIVA LA REPUBLICA! “.  AND THEN HE HAD AN IDEA. HE TOOK THE RECEIVER OUT OF THE FINGERS OF ECHEVARRIA; IT WAS VERY DAMP, AND HE ROARED DOWN IT ” VIVA LA REPUBLICA! “. “NOW YOU TRY”, HE SAID, SMILING IN A FATHERLY WAY, HANDING THE MACHINE BACK.”

“” VIVA LA REPUBLICA ” CAME VERY FEEBLY FROM THE LIPS OF ECHEVARRIA. ” THAT´S QUITE ENOUGH, ”  SAID ALDASORO, AND TOOK THE RECEIVER FROM ECHEVARRIA  A SECOND TIME, AND HUNG IT QUIETLY  UPON THE STAND. “

” THE DIE WAS CAST. THE CIVIL GOVERNOR LOOKED MORESELY OUT OF THE WINDOW, AND HE PULLED OUT HID POCKET HANDKERCHIEF. ADIEU TO COMFORT. ” THE TREE OF GERNIKA: A FIELD OF STUDY OF MODERN WARG.L. STEER. FABER FINDS )

6. “…IN BILBAO THERE WERE NO PERSONAL CRIMES WITHOUT A PRELIMINARY TRIAL DUE TO POLITICAL IDEAS…

…FLEEING SANTANDER TONS OF REFUGEES ARRIVED IN BILBAO. THEY WERE RUN AFTER BY A BAND OF SIX MEMBERS OF SANTANDER POLICE, WHOSE JOB CONSISTED OF HARASSING THEIR ENEMIES IN THEIR HIDING PLACES, DETAINING AND KILLING THEM. BASQUE PEOPLE REPUDIATED THAT WAY OF TREATING THE ENEMY. ONE DAY JUSTICE WAS DONE ON THREE OF THOSE SANTANDER POLICEMEN; THEY WERE EXECUTED IN A BASQUE VILLAGE ON THE COAST ON THE WAY TO SANTANDER. BASQUE PEOPLE DECLARED COLDLY BASQUE PEOPLE THEMSELVES HAD DONE IT. THE POLICE FROM SANTANDER DID NOT SNEAK IN INTERFERING AGAIN IN BIZKAIA TERRITORY. ORDER WAS REESTABLISHED ONCE AGAIN SOON. SURVEILLANCE PATROLS WERE CLEARED FROM THE STREETS AND THE SANCTIONED LOCAL POLICE WENT BACK TO WORK. “

7. “… THE SADLY RESTRICTED REPUBLICAN PARLIAMENT HOSTED IN VALENCIA DECIDED TO KEEP THEIR WORD IN THE AGREEMENT WITH THE BASQUE COUNTRY: OCTOBER 1, 1936 THE STATUTE OF AUTONOMY WAS BROUGHT UP BEFORE THE DEPUTIES. AGUIRRE,  A YOUNG MAN IN THE NATIONAL BASQUE PARTY, GAVE A SPEECH THANKING THE PARLIAMENT FOR SATISFYING THE YEARNING FOR FREEDOM SO MUCH OPPRESSED IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY FOR SO LONG:

“…WE, WHO CONDEMN WITH ALL OUR MIGHT THE BURNING OF CHURCHES, WHENEVER THAT TAKES PLACE, SINCE OUR FAITH HAS ENDLESS HORIZONS; WE, WHO CONDEMN THE KILLING OF HUMAN BEINGS FOR THE ONLY REASON OF HOLDING PARTICULAR POSITIONS, HONESTLY TELL YOU THIS: UP TO THE DAY FASCISM IS DEFEATED, THE BASQUE NATIONALISM WILL REMAIN FIRM IN ITS POSITION”.

AFTER MAKING THAT THORNY SPEECH, ADDRESSED TO BOTH BLOCS IN THE FIGHT, AS SINCERE AS GIVEN BY A BASQUE MAN, AGUIRRE FLEW TO BILBAO WITH THE AUTONOMY IN HIS POCKET. IT BECAME LAW OCTOBER 5, 1936, AND YET IN BILBAO THE KILLING OF HUMAN BEINGS BY SPANIARDS HAPPENED ONCE AGAIN FOR THE ONLY REASON OF HOLDING SPECIFIC POSITIONS AND FOR THEIR WELL-KNOWN POLITICAL TENDENCIES ON THE FOLLOWING DAY OF THE SPEECH. THE ” RED FLOTILLA”, LIKE THE PEOPLE FROM BILBAO CALLED IT, SHOT THE GULF OF BIZKAY MAKING IT SHED BLOOD. IT WAS A REVENGE ACT DUE TO THE SINKING OF THE REPUBLICAN DESTROYER “ALMIRANTE JUAN FERRÁNDIZ” AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER”.

8. “…BASQUE PEOPLE WERE NOT ONLY FREE BUT ALSO PEOPLE WHO RULED. THESE PAGES ARE A REPORT ON HOW THEIR WELL-DISCIPLINED DEMOCRACY BORE THE WEIGHT OF MODERN WAR, PROBABLY THE CRUELEST EVER KNOWN IN EUROPE. IT´S TRUE THEY WERE NOT SLY WHATSOEVER AND THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW TO CONTROL THE CIVIL SOCIETY BY MEANS OF PROPAGANDA: THEY WERE TOO SINCERE. ALTHOUGH FROM THE PHYSICAL POINT OF VIEW THEY WERE WELL-BUILT THEY WERE ANTIMILITARIST AND WERE NOT INTERESTED ENOUGH IN THE TURN OF THE WAR TO SEE HOW, WHY AND HOW URGENT IT WAS TO GET RID OF THE INEFFICIENT AND COWARDLY SPANISH THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF. THAT IS HOW THEY LOST THEIR FREEDOM. BUT THEY FOUGHT WITH GROWING TENACITY AGAINST SUPERIOR WEAPONS NOT ONLY IN QUANTITY BUT ALSO IN QUALITY. THEY WERE DEFEATED BY FOREIGNERS, NOT BY SPAIN”.  TO BE CONTINUED…

  

WAKING UP TO GRATITUDE

WHEN WE GO THROUGH A LOT IN LIFE, SAY ALL SORTS OF LET DOWNS AND FAILINGS, IS WHEN WE´RE FACED WITH TWO CHOICES: EITHER BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL THOSE AND SEE THEM AS PART OF THE LEARNING PROCESS OF BEING BETTER HUMAN BEINGS, OR BEING UNGRATEFUL, COMPLAINING ABOUT ALMOST ANYTHING AROUND US. FOR SURE, BEING GRATEFUL TO GOD, OUR PARENTS, OUR TEACHERS AND OUR GOOD FRIENDS IS WHAT IT IS EXPECTED FROM US, NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS. FROM THE VERY EARLY MORNING WHEN WE WEAK  UP  WE´RE SURROUNDED BY A MILLION WONDERFUL THINGS LIKE A COSY HOME WITH ITS THOUSAND BEAUTIFUL, CONFORTABLE ITEMS, WHICH MAKE OUR LIFE MUCH BETTER, THE SUN WITH THE GORGEOUS NATURE GOD CREATED FOR US TO DELIGHT OUR EYES, OUR SENSITIVITY AND EMOTIONS WITH THE SCENT OF AROMATIC PLANTS LIKE LAVENDER THYME, ROSEMARY, PASSE-PARTOUT, MINT, BAY LEAF AND OUR TREASOROUS TREES LIKE EUCALYPTUSES, LIME TREES, LEMON TREES…WITH THEIR BREATHTAKING SCENTS WHICH MAKE US TAKE SOME STEPS INTO OUR LONG-AWAITED HEAVEN. GOD GIFTED NATURE WITH HEAVENLY BEACHES AND SO IN SUMMER TIME BEACHES ARE HEAVENS ON EARTH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR EVERYDAY. THE FOOD WE EAT DURING BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER IS ONE MORE REASON AMONG THE THOUSAND LEFT ONES TO TALK ABOUT WE´RE TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE FOR.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER LEARNT TO SAY “THANK YOU, I LOVE YOU, I APPRECIATE IT, IT IS VERY KIND OF YOU…”. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE IN THEIR FAMILY ACKNOWLEDGE THE IMPACT OTHERS MADE IN THEM. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO PREFER GETTING THEIR HEAD WET ON A RAINY DAY TO PUTTING ON THEIR COAT´S HOOD, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DON´T VALUE THEIR HEALTH ENOUGH. WHEN SOMEONE DOESN´T KNOW HIS HEALTH IS HIS WEALTH IS WHEN HE DOESN´T VALUE HIS COAT´S HOOD, FOR EXAMPLE. THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WHO, WHILE AT A WAITING ROOM SURROUNDED BY WOODEN CHAIRS, CAN´T HELP BUT THINK OF THE BEAUTIFUL TREES THOSE WOODEN CHAIRS MUST COME FROM, AND AT THE SAME TIME THEY LOOK AT THE WOODEN CHAIRS THEY THANK THOSE TREES FOR THE WOOD WHICH THEY ARE ENJOYING THOSE MINUTES WHILE THEY ARE SITTING ON THEM, AND LOOKING AT THEM. WITH THESE TWO SIMPLE EXAMPLES, OUT OF SO MANY WE COULD MENTION, WE WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THE NECESSITY TO THINK OVER THE PRESENT BLESSINGS WE ALL HAVE, MOST OF US ABUNDANTLY, AND SO AFTER REFLECTING ON THOSE THE ONLY LEFT THING FOR US TO DO WOULD BE TO PRACTICE DAILY EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE. THE BEST WAY TO START OFF THE DAY IS BEFORE WE EVEN GET UP WHILE WE´RE STILL IN BED, TO THANK GOD FOR THE NICE SLEEP WE´VE JUST ENJOYED SAYING SOMETHING, LIKE   THIS:   “ THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THE GOOD SLEEP, MY HEALTH, MY FAMILY, AND FOR EVERYTHING I´VE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH IN LIFE”. WE COULD GO ON SAYING SOME PRAYERS LIKE “OUR FATHER, HAIL MARY AND GLORY”, AND THEN WE CAN GO AHEAD AND GET UP, ENJOYING EVERYTHING WE DO.

DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE MR. BERNIE SANDERS TWITTED THE FOLLOWING LINES FEBRUARY 6: “IT´S EASY TO APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING BAD DECISIONS. IT´S HARDER TO MAKE THE RIGHT ONES”. MR. SANDERS HAS BEEN IN POLITICS FOR ABOUT 35 YEARS AND HE HAS SEEN A GREAT DEAL OF GREED AND VESTED INTERESTS AS TO MOST U.S. POLITICIANS´ DECISIONS. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT MR. SANDERS WANTS TO FIGHT AGAINST, THAT IS, GREED, THEIRS, HIS, YOURS AND MINE. AND WHAT DOES HE DO TO FIGHT IT? MR. SANDERS SHOWS GENEROSITY GIVING THE BEST OF HIMSELF. HE ISN´T THERE FOR THE MONEY. HE´S SICK OF SEEING BILLIONAIRIES AND CORPORATIONS MANIPULATE OUR POLITICIANS LEADING THE U.S. TO UNDESIRABLE SITUATIONS LIKE THE ONES WE SEE WITH THE FOOD INDUSTRY, THE SLAUGHTERING HOUSES, ANIMAL FARMS, THE WILDLIFE, BEING TORN APART BY CYNICS WHO PRETEND TO PROTECT OUR ANIMALS, WHEREAS THEY DON´T MISS THE SLIGHTEST OPPORTUNITY TO KILL WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, BEARS, LIONS…OUT OF GREED TO GET EASY MONEY FOR THEIR HEEDS AND IVORY. MR. BERNIE SANDERS WANTS TO GET THE U.S. BACK ON TRACK, DOING WHAT´S  BEST FOR CITIZENS´ NEEDS, BETTING ON NATURAL FOOD AND PROTECTING OUR WILDLIFE. ONE CAN ONLY DISPLAY GENEROSITY IF THAT INDIVIDUAL IS GRATEFUL FOR EVERYTHING HE´S BEEN GRANTED IN LIFE, LIKE MR. SANDERS IS, TELLING IT LIKE IT IS AND PROVIDING US WITH FACTS AND DATA ON EVERY SINGLE SUBJECT.

THERE ARE MANY EXAMPLES OF CELEBRITIES AND WELL-KNOWN PEOPLE LIKE DOCTORS WHO STARTED DOING A GOOD JOB, THANKING GOD FOR EVERYTHING THEY HAD ACCOMPLISHED, BUT SOMEHOW AT SOME POINT SOME UNSCRUPULOUS CYNICS GOT IN THEIR WAY TO MAKE THEM TAKE THE BAIT, AND SURE 99% OF THEM DID. MANY OF THESE CELEBRITIES AND DOCTORS ARE NO LONGER GRATEFUL FOR ANYTHING, NOR DO THEY DO ANY RESEARCH THOUGH THEY SAY THEY DO. WHY? BECAUSE THEY ARE HOOKED ON SEX. HOW COME? BECAUSE THE UNSCRUPULOUS CYNICS ARE SO GOOD AT WINNING PEOPLE OVER THAT THEY MAKE MANY GENUINE PEOPLE TAKE THE BAIT PUTTING SUBTLE PRESSURE ON THEM, LEADING THEM INTO WHOREHOUSES, AND FROM THERE THEIR LIVES ARE NEVER THE SAME. ONE OF THESE CELEBRITIES, MR. CHARLIE SHEEN, WAS ONE OF THE MANY WHO WAS TRICKED BY THEM. MR. CHARLIE SHEEN IS THE KIND OF PERSON WHO WALKS HIS WALK, SINCERE, FUNNY AND REALLY SMART TO RECOGNIZE SOMEONE WHO IS SMART AS WELL AS WISE. MOST CAN SEE ALL THAT IN MR. CHARLIE SHEEN, AND THE UNSCRUPULOUS CYNICS ARE REALLY QUICK FOR THIS KIND OF REALIZATION. THE CYNICS WERE WELL AWARE OF MR. CHARLIE SHEEN´S POTENTIAL TO DO GREAT THINGS IF HE EVER MET THE RIGHT PEOPLE. WHEN DID THE CYNICS START PLANNING THESE MANEUVERS IN THE DARK AS FOR MR. CHARLIE SHEEN? LET´S IMAGINE IT WAS MAY 2010, AND LET´S IMAGINE THEIR PLAN WAS TO TARGET HIM GIVING HIM THE WORST OF ADVICE, SUCH AS GOING TO WHOREHOUSES AND TAKE DRUGS, SO THAT HE WOULD FINALLY END UP SICK AND HOOKED ON THOSE. AND SO THEY DID. THEY DECEIVED MR. CHARLIE SHEEN MAKING HIM BELIEVE HAPPINESS WAS ABOUT SEX AND DRUGS. NOT ONLY DID THE CYNICS AROUND MR. CHARLIE SHEEN DARE GIVE HIM THE WORST OF ADVICE EVER BUT THEY INTRODUCED HIM TO “PARTICULAR WOMEN”, OR RATHER “SOME PARTICULAR WOMEN, WHO WERE ILL, GOT INTO HIS LIFE”, PRETENDING IT WAS A COINCIDENCE WHEN IT WASN´T, SINCE IT WAS ALL PERFECTLY PLANNED TO GET HIM SICK. THE GOOD PART OF THE STORY IS THAT SOME GOOD FRIEND OF MR. CHARLIE SHEEN MUST HAVE TOLD HIM ABOUT SOMEONE WHO COULD HELP HIM, AND IT´S RIGHT HERE WHEN MR. CHARLIE SHEEN STARTS TO BE GRATEFUL AGAIN FOR THAT AND FOR SO MANY THINGS HE WOULD HAVE NEVER IMAGINED BEFORE, NOT EVEN IN HIS WILDEST DREAMS. NOW MR. CHARLIE SHEEN, THANKS TO THIS DAILY THANKSGIVING, IS A MUCH HAPPIER HUMAN BEING THAN HE WAS EVER BEFORE.

WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER I USED TO HEAR PEOPLE SAY THE FOLLOWING: “IF JESUS CHRIST EVER CAME BACK HERE AGAIN PEOPLE WOULD CRUCIFY HIM AGAIN”. I DIDN´T GET TO UNDERSTAND IT THEN. IT´S NOW WHEN I DO, BEING AWARE OF THE LACK OF GRATITUDE MOST PEOPLE HAVE FOR MANY PEOPLE, FOR THINGS IN GENERAL, AND FOR JESUS CHRIST´S LOVE FOR ALL OF US, HAVING DONE ALL THE MIRACLES HE DID, HAVING BEEN CRUCIFIED, HAVING BEEN RESURRECTED ON THE THIRD DAY AND HAVING BEEN SEEN RESURRECTED BY ABOUT MORE THAN 50 PEOPLE. IGNORING JESUS CHRIST´S ASSIGNMENT FOR US TO CARRY OUT TO THIS VERY DAY, WHICH IS GOING TO MASS AND CELEBRATE IT IN HIS MEMORY, AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS.

IN THE MASTERPIECE THE REVENANT BY ALEJANDRO GONZÁLEZ IÑARRITU, BASED ON THE 2002 NOVEL BY MICHAEL PUNKE, WE FIND A LOT OF GEMS. ONE OF THEM IS THE FACT THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE HELP THEY RECEIVE, AND ON THE OTHER HAND THERE ARE OTHERS WHO AREN´T GRATEFUL, AND ARE USUALLY CRUEL TO THE ONES THAT HELPED THEM. IN THIS AWSOME MOVIE WE SEE HOW ONE OF HUGH GLASS´S HUNTING TEAM MEMBERS, JOHN FITZGERALD, DARES KILL GLASS´S SON – HAWK – AND ON TOP OF THAT HE ATTEMPTS TO KILL GLASS BURYING HIM ALIVE. IT IS ONE OF GLASS´S BEST FRIENDS – BRIDGER – WHO GETS FITZGERALD TO STOP BURYING GLASS ALIVE COMPLETELY. FITZGERALD IS THE EPITOME OF INGRATITUDE. WHY? BECAUSE HUGH GLASS – STARRING LEONARDO DICAPRIO – HELPED HIM TOGETHER WITH ALL THE OTHERS AS MUCH AS HE COULD AND HE DESERVED HAVING BEEN HELPED, NOT HAVING BEEN ALMOST BURIED ALIVE AND HAVING HIS SON KILLED AS WELL. INSTEAD, FITZGERALD, PASSED ON THE GRATITUDE HE SHOULD HAVE SHOWN TO HUGH GLASS. WHY WASN´T FITZGERALD GRATEFUL TO GLASS FOR ALL HE HAD DONE FOR HIM FOR SO LONG? BECAUSE FITZGERALD, LIKE MANY PEOPLE TODAY, DIDN´T HAVE ANY PRINCIPLES. FITZGERALD, HIMSELF, MENTIONS HIS PARENTS IN THE MOVIE, MAKING US UNDERSTAND THEY DIDN´T HAVE ANY MORAL EITHER AND SO HE WAS A VICTIM OF HIS PARENTS, LIKE IN 99% OF CASES HAPPEN. PEOPLE WITHOUT PRINCIPLES EVENTUALLY DECEIVE THE ONES AROUND AND CAN BE OFTEN VERY CRUEL TOO. IT´S IMPORTANT TO UNVEIL THE ONES WITHOUT PRINCIPLES AND TRY NOT TO GET AROUND THEM BECAUSE THEY WON´T MISS A CHANCE TO TRICK US ALL. THIS GREAT MOVIE IS PACKED WITH INGRATITUDE SIGNS. HERE´S A LIST:

1.TOUSSANT, THE FRENCH BOSS, IS ANOTHER EPITOME OF INGRATITUDE. HE DARES TELL ELK DOG – THE OLD NATIVE AMERICAN CHIEF – THESE LINES: “BRING ME THE GIRL! THOSE 5 HORSES WEREN´T FOR FREE” (TOUSSANT (CHARACTER) IMDb). AND ELK DOG´S WISE WORDS ARE THESE: “YOU ALL HAVE STOLEN EVERYTHING FROM US. EVERYTHING! THE LAND, THE ANIMALS” (ELK DOG (CHARACTER) IMDb). WE SEE HOW ELK DOG HUMBLY TELLS TOUSSANT HOW UNGRATEFUL HE IS TO HIM, SINCE NOT ONLY DID HE STEAL HIS ANIMALS AND LAND BUT HE ALSO WANTS HIS DAUGHTER TO SEXUALLY ABUSE HER. WE CAN´T IMAGINE ALL THE PAIN NATIVE AMERICANS WENT THROUGH SEEING HOW THEIR LAND, ANIMALS AND WOMEN WERE BEING STOLEN BY THE SETTLERS. THAT IS SOMETHING AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN´T BE PROUD OF AND MUST HUMBLY ADMIT ALL THE WRONG THAT WAS DONE. NO WONDER HOW SAD MOST NATIVE AMERICANS LEFT ARE NOWADAYS. IN 1995 I WENT TO A NAVAJO NATIVE AMERICAN COMMUNITY IN ARIZONA TO SPEND SOME TIME THERE, AND I MUST SAY I SAW MANY SAD PEOPLE, SOME OF WHICH WERE VICTIMS OF ALCOHOLISM. THESE GOOD   PEOPLE´S SADNESS AND IN SOME CASES ALCOHOLISM ARE NOT COINCIDENCES. THOSE SYMPTOMS ARE THE ONES WHICH WISE HUMAN BEINGS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE WHEN THEY  HAVE BEEN TREATED REALLY BADLY, DECEIVED AND DENIED WHAT WAS THEIRS: THEIR LAND AS THE FIRST U.S. INHABITANTS THAT THEY WERE. THE EUROPEAN COLONISTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN GRATEFUL TO THE NATIVE AMERICANS HAVING RESPECTED THEIR LANDS, ANIMALS, WOMEN, CUSTOMS AND EVERYTHING. ACTUALLY, THE FIRST THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION TOOK PLACE IN THE U.S. AS A GRATITUDE SIGN OF THE FIRST SETTLERS TO THE NATIVE AMERICANS WHO SHOWED THEM HOW TO GET THEIR FIRST HARVEST RIGHT. AS THEY REAPED GOOD FRUITS THEY WERE GRATEFUL ENOUGH TO THE NATIVE AMERICAN FOR HAVING SHARED THEIR WISFUL IDEAS AS TO HARVESTS, CELEBRATING IT WITH A THANKSGIVING DINNER. WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? SURE ENOUGH, WARPED ONES GOT IN THE WAY AND SPOILT THE FIRST GOOD RELATIONSHIP WHICH GAVE WAY TO THE FIRST HISTORIC THANKSGIVING. THEREFORE MOST SETTLERS FAILED THE TEST OF GRATITUDE TO GOD SINCE THEY WERE UNGRATEFUL TO THE NATIVE AMERICANS STEALING THEIR LAND, ANIMALS AND RAPING THEIR WOMEN. AS MANY OF THE SETTLERS DIDN´T BELIEVE IN  GOD,  THEY  DIDN´T HAVE ANY PRINCIPLES AND SO THEY THOUGHT RAPING WOMEN WASN´T WRONG AND SO SEX ASSAULTS MADE NEW DISEASES SPREAD ACROSS THE COUNTRY LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

2.IN THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE HUGH GLASS KILLED AN INNOCENT BEAR MOTHER WHO WAS TAKING CARE OF HER TWO CUBS. BY THEN HE STILL DIDN´T KNOW WE´RE ALL TO RESPECT OUR NEIGHBOR MAMMALS UNLESS WE WANT NATURE, BEARS, ETC. TO GO AGAINST US. HUGH GLASS HAD UNFOUNDED FEARS, TWISTED IDEAS ABOUT BEARS AND ABOUT NATIVE AMERICANS. IT TOOK GLASS SEVERAL ATTEMPTS BEFORE HE FINALLY GOT TO KILL THE COMPASSIONATE BEAR. GLASS INSISTED ON KILLING THE BEAR MOTHER EVEN THOUGH THE BEAR MOTHER SHOWED COMPASSION FOR GLASS LETTING HIM LIVE WHEN IT WAS EASY FOR HER TO HAVE KILLED HIM IN JUST A SEC. GLASS WAS NOT GRATEFUL TO THE BEAR FOR LETTING HIM GO, FOR HER COMPASSION TOWARDS HIM. GLASS SHOULD HAVE WALKED AWAY, EXPRESSING GRATITUDE TO GOD, AND TO THE BEAR MOTHER FOR BEING STILL ALIVE, BUT INSTEAD HE WENT FOR INGRATITUDE AND SO HE HAD TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. THIS IS KEY TO UNDERSTAND SO MANY THINGS GOING ON TODAY IN OUR WORLD. IT´S AN AMAZING SCENE WHEN THE GOOD BEAR MOTHER KISSES GLASS´S FACE AND CARESSES HIS FACE AFTER ACTING  IN  SELF-DEFENSE  HAVING  GLASS´S GUN POINTING AT HER. AT THAT POINT GLASS DID NOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING, AND DECIDED TO LISTEN TO GOD´S COMPETENCE´S VOICE WHICH LED HIM INTO MISFORTUNE FOR SO LONG, BEFORE HE UNVEILED THE WHOLE TRUTH.

3.THE FRENCH WERE SO UNGRATEFUL TO ALL NATIVE AMERICANS THAT NOT ONLY DID THEY STEAL EVERYTHING FROM THEM BUT THEY ALSO HUNG MANY OF THEM LIKE WE SAW IN THE SCENE WHEN HIKUC – THE WISE NATIVE AMERICAN WHO HEALED GLASS PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY – WAS HUNG. THEY EVEN DARED LEAVE A SIGN WITH THESE LINES WRITTEN ON IT NEXT TO THE HUNG NATIVE AMERICAN, HIKUC: “WE ARE SAVAGES”.

THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THE MOVIE COMES WHEN  GRATITUDE SCENES COME TO MIND. HERE ARE SOME:

1.WHEN THE BEAR MOTHER LETS GLASS LIVE, NOT BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF HIM AND EATING HIM AFTERWARDS.

2.HIKUC WAS A WISE NATIVE AMERICAN WHO WAS EATING SOME BUFFALO MEAT AT NIGHT WHEN HE HEARD GLASS CRAWLING TO HIM AND DECIDED TO SHARE THE MEAT WITH GLASS, WHO WAS STARVING. HIKUC EXPRESSED GRATITUDE TO GOD AND TO NATURE SHARING THE MEAT WITH GLASS. HIKUC WAS GRATEFUL FOR HAVING SOMETHING TO EAT, KNEW ABOUT JESUS CHRIST´S LEGACY AND SO HE PRACTICED IT HELPING GLASS THE BEST WAY HE KNEW. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENE OF ALL IS WHEN HIKUC STARTS BUILDING A SHACK FOR GLASS TO SPEND THE NIGHT, MAKES A FIRE AND PUTS SOME HERBS ON THE MANY WOUNDS GLASS HAD DUE TO THE BEAR´S SELF-DEFENSE ATTACK. THE FOLLOWING MORNING GLASS IS ALREADY A NEW MAN, PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING. DURING THAT NIGHT THERE HE HAD A DREAM WHERE HE SAW HIS WIFE ALIVE AND SMILING, WALKING AROUND A CHURCH IN RUINS AND IN THE BACK OF IT WE SAW JESUS CHRIST. ALL THIS COMES TO A GREAT DEAL OF SYMBOLS OF GRATITUDE TO JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD. HIKUC WAS SO GRATEFUL TO GOD AND TO NATURE THAT BESIDES BUILDING THAT SHACK AND MAKING FIRE HE WENT ALL THE WAY HEALING GLASS´S WOUNDS WITH THE HUMBLE HELP OF SOME GOOD HERBS HE KNEW. FOR SURE HIKUC IS THE EPITOME OF GRATITUDE.

3.BRIDGER WAS GRATEFUL TO GLASS FOR WHAT HE HAS HELPED HIM THROUGH, HAVING MADE UP HIS MIND TO STAY TAKING CARE OF GLASS UNTIL THE END, ALTHOUGH FITZGERALD FOOLED BRIDGER INTO BELIEVING SOME SIOUX WERE NEAR AND FINALLY WON BRIDGER OVER LEAVING GLASS ON HIS OWN.

4.BRIDGER WAS GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR ALL THE HELP GLASS PROVIDED HIM WITH HELPING AN OLD NATIVE AMERICAN WOMAN HIDDEN IN A SHACK, GIVING HER SOME BREAD AND NOT TELLING FITZGERALD ABOUT HER.

5.THAT MORNING WHEN GLASS´S WOUNDS WERE HEALED IS WHEN HE STARTED BEING AWARE WHO WERE THE REAL BAD GUYS IN THE U.S. THEN. FIRST, GLASS, FOUND HIKUC HUNG BY THE FRENCH, WITH A SIGN SAYING “WE ARE SAVAGES”. THEN HE WENT ON AND SAW THE FRENCH WERE RAPING NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN, AND IT IS WHEN HE DECIDED TO FREE ELK DOG´S DAUGHTER – WHO FINALLY FINISHED OFF THE JOB TELLING THE BAD FRENCH THIS: “I´LL CUT OFF YOUR BALLS”. GLASS EXPRESSED GRATITUDE TO GOD HELPING POWAQA AND LETTING HER TAKE PART IN KILLING THE SAVAGE.

WHAT TAKES THE CAKE, AFTER WATCHING SUCH FANTASTIC MOVIE, IS HEARING SOMEONE, WHEN GOING OUT OF THE MOVIE, TELL SOMEONE ON THE PHONE THE FOLLOWING: “WELL, IT WASN´T BAD, NOTHING SPECIAL. I CAN´T UNDERSTAND HOW THIS MOVIE WAS AWARDED SO MANY AWARDS. THE ONLY GOOD THING WAS WHEN HE KILLED THE BEAR”. YES, FOLKS, I JUST COULDN´T BELIEVE WHAT I WAS HEARING. FROM HIS SUPERFICIAL WORDS WE CAN CONCLUDE ALL THIS:

1.THIS PERSON IN HIS MID 20S DIDN´T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING WHATSOEVER ABOUT THE MOVIE ITSELF: NEITHER THE INTENTION, THE GREAT DEAL OF SUBTLE MESSAGES, THE IMMENSE WISDOM, THE BEAUTY OF NATIVE AMERICANS NOR THE HONESTY, RESPECT AND FAITH IN GOD.

2.HE LACKED ANY SENSE OF GRATITUDE FOR SUCH A GIFT FROM THE FILM INDUSTRY. I MYSELF WAS THANKING GOD AS I WAS WATCHING IT BECAUSE IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE TO SEE REAL LOVE, THE ONE SHOWN BY HIKUC TO GLASS, IN SOME REALLY OUTSTANDING SCENES. ONCE AGAIN, THE KEY POINT TO HIGHLIGHT HERE IS THIS PERSON´S ZERO SENSE OF WHAT GRATITUDE IS.

IT IS SAD AND DISAPPOINTING TO SEE PEOPLE WHO WE HELPED SOMETIME IN THE PAST AND WHO AREN´T GRATEFUL TO US. BEING UNGRATEFUL APPLIES TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES. AGE ISN´T KEY HERE, BUT PRINCIPLES AND FAITH. WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE? IF THE PERSON IS FULL OF PRIDE, NOTHING MUCH CAN BE ACHIEVED AND WHAT ONE ENDS UP DOING IS DEDICATING HER TIME HELPING THE HUMBLE ONES, WHO ARE OPENED TO HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND ARE READY TO BE GRATEFUL TO GOD´S SERVANTS HERE, WHO ARE ONLY HELPING AS MANY AS THEY CAN WHILE THEIR TIME HERE ALLOWS. I´M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO VALUE PEOPLE AND THINGS A LOT. I VALUE SOME OBJECTS SO MUCH THAT EVEN WHEN MY MOTHER BUYS A JUNKET I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO THROW THE JUNKET POT AWAY SINCE I FIND IT TOO BEAUTIFUL TO GET RID OF IT. IT WOULD BE EASY IF I HAD SOMEONE TO GIVE IT TO. IT´S NOT THE CASE WHEN IT COMES TO DESTROYING NICE THINGS. WHEN SOMEONE HELPS ME IN ANY WAY I NEVER FORGET IT AND I ALWAYS THANK THE PERSON, MAKING IT UP FOR THAT PERSON SOMEHOW. HOWEVER, THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE SO SHOR-SIGHTED THEY CAN´T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES, AND SO NOT ONLY DO THEY UNDERRATE BEAUTIFUL OBJECTS BUT THEY ALSO IGNORE THEY´VE GOT TO THANK THE PERSON WHO HELPED THEM, OUT OF COMPASSION OR GENEROSITY, AND MAKE IT UP FOR THEM SOMEHOW, SOMETIME IN LIFE, BECAUSE AS THE SAYING SAYS: “GRATITUDE IS THE SIGN OF NOBLE SOULS”. IN SOME CASES ONE CAN EVEN SEE SOME OF THESE UNGRATEFUL BEINGS EXPRESSING NOTHING MUCH BUT EXCESSIVE PRIDE WHICH HIDES THEIR FEAR TO CREDIT THE MIRACLE OR THE GIFT THEY OR THEIR CHILDREN, RELATIVES…RECEIVED, SAY THANKS TO A PERSON´S SOLID PRAYERS. “THE SMALLEST THANKS IS ALWAYS WORTH MORE THAN THE EFFORT IT TAKES TO GIVE IT” – UNKNOWN.

HERE BELOW ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF CRUEL INGRATITUDE BY MANY PEOPLE, AND POLITICIANS ALLOWING THEM, TO GOD AND TO NATURE:

1.“MODERN WHALING INVOLVES THE USE OF HARPOONS FITTED WITH PENTHRITE GRENADES, WHICH ARE SUPPOSED TO PENETRATE TO ABOUT 12 INCHES AND THEN EXPLODE, RELEASING CLAW-LIKE PROTRUSIONS TO RIP INTO THE FLESH. DEATH CAN COME BY TRAUMA, LACERATION OR A DESTRUCTIVE SHOCK WAVE TO THE BRAIN” (DON´T BUY FROM ICELANDIC WHALERS.COM.ICELANDIC WHALING MYTHS AND FACTS). THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO SOME WHALES WHO DON´T DIE INSTANTLY AFTER HAVING BEEN SHOT AND ARE RESHOT WITH A PENTHRITE GRENADE HARPOON. SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE OF WHAT GRATITUDE TO GOD AND NATURE IS AND SO THEY THINK THAT THEY OWN EVERYTHING AND THAT CAN KILL ANY CETACEAN THEY SEE. THEIR LIVES REVOLVE AROUND MONEY, GREED AND PLEASURE. NOT ONLY DO THESE UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE FORCE THESE AMAZING CREATURES TO AGONIZE FOR 15 MINUTES AFTER HAVING BEING SHOT THE FIRST TIME BUT THEY ALSO MAKE OUR HEARTS BLEED. WE, WHO ARE GRATEFUL TO GOD AND TO NATURE FOR EVERY LITTLE THING, CAN ENJOY WATCHING LIKE WHALES, IN THIS CASE, FEEL A LOT OF PAIN AS WELL, KNOWING AND FEELING THEM AGONIZE. WHALES ARE GOD´S GIFTS FOR US TO ENJOY WATCHING NOT TO KILL , AND WORST OF ALL CAUSE THEM AN AGONIZING DEATH. SUCH BARBARIC ACTS DEPICT UNGRATEFULNESS TO GOD, TO NATURE AND TO ALL OF US.

2.“A BLONDE FEMALE ANNOUNCER DRESSED AS A SAILOR SPURS ON THE ANIMALS LIKE CHAMPION ATHLETES. “A REAL SPORTSMAN DOESN´T GIVE UP SO EASILY” SHE BOOMS AS A BELUGA NAMED DANDY LEAPS OUT OF THE WATER BUT FAILS TO WHACK A BALL HANGING ON A STRING WITH HIS BALL. BUT HE DOES NOT FLUFF UP HIS SECOND ATTEMPT. “AND HE´S GOT IT THIS TIME” THE PRESENTER SHOUTS AS THE CROWD ROARS IN APPROVAL OVER A SOUNDTRACK OF BLARING ROCK AND RUSSIAN POP BALLADS. BEFORE THE MOSCOW DOLPHIN CIRCUS ROLLED IN TOWN, 1,500 PEOPLE SIGNED AN ONLINE PETITION IMPLORING KYRGYZSTAN´S PRESIDENT ALMAZBEK ATAMBAYEV TO BAN IT” (DOLPHIN CIRCUS SPARKS ANIMAL CRUELTY DEBATE IN CENTRAL ASIA-BLOGS DE NATURE NEWS. JANUARY 21, 2016). DOLPHINS AND BELUGAS ARE GOD´S GIFTS FOR NATURE TO BE FREE, NOT BE TRAPPED IN A POOL, FORCED TO PERFORM SILLY ACTS. WHAT TAKES THE SUPER POUND CAKE IS THE AD “ADIESTRA A TU GATO A USAR EL WC”  (= “TRAIN YOUR CAT TO USE THE TOILET”) BELOW THIS ARTICLE, TRYING TO FOOL US ALL TO FORCE OUR BEAUTIFUL CATS TO USE THE TOILET, WHICH IS NOT MADE FOR THEM. SO NOW, WHAT WE DO NEXT IS TELL THE ONES BEHIND THIS FIASCO: “NO, THANK YOU. WE DON´T BUY IT. WE WANT YOU TO TRAIN YOUR BRAIN TO DO A BETTER ADVERTISEMENT NEXT TIME. CATS DESERVE TO BE RESPECTED AND RESPECTING THEM IMPLIES PROVIDING THEM WITH CAT LITTER, WHICH CAN REMIND THEM OF THE WILD OUT THERE AND ENJOY IT.”

3.“WE ARE HERE ON THE DANISH ISLAND OF FYN, COPENHAGEN. AFTER TALKING FOR A WHILE ABOUT THE LION´S COAT AND CLAWS, THE ZOO EDUCATOR BEGINS TO CUT. AT THIS POINT A HANDFUL OF CHILDREN WALK OUT. BUT FOR THE MOST PART, THE AUDIENCE STAYS PUT, COVERING THEIR NOSES AS THE SMELL BECOMES OVERWHELMING, BUT APPARENTLY RIVETED BY WHAT THEY´RE SEEING. CRITICS ARGUE THAT THESE DISPLAYS ARE DESENSITIZING AT BEST AND TRAUMATIZING AT WORST. THIS WAS THE ZOO´S SECOND PUBLIC DISSECTION OF A LION IN 4 MONTHS” (DANES SAY ZOO DISSECTIONS FIT WITH COUNTRY´S “VERY HONEST” PARENTING:NPR. JANUARY 22, 2016). LOOKING AT THE PHOTO OF THE LION, LAID OUT ON THE TABLE OF THE ODENSE ZOO IN DENMARK, WE SEE 4 PHOTOGRAPHERS AT LEAST. LET´S IMAGINE, THE 3 OF THEM WHOSE FACES WE CAN´T SEE ARE PART OF THE CYNICS, TOGETHER WITH THE ZOO´S EDUCATOR, A BIOLOGY STUDENT FROM THE LOCAL UNIVERSITY, AND LET´S IMAGINE THAT THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPHER WHOSE FACE WE CAN SEE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO ISN´T A CYNIC BUT AN HONEST ONE, WHO IS HORRIFIED AT THE HORROR OF HAVING KILLED A BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY LION.

4.“MORE THAN 100,000 ELEPHANTS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN AFRICA IN THE PAST 3 YEARS. KENYA LOST 96 ELEPHANTS AND 11 RHINOS TO POACHERS IN 2015”(LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND NICOLE KIDMAN TO ATTEND TORCHING OF LARGEST EVER IVORY STOCKPILE TO HELP PUT AN END TO POACHING. ECOWATCH. JANUARY 28, 2016). AFRICAN AUTHORITIES ARE UNGRATEFUL TO GOD FOR KILLING ELEPHANTS AND RHINOS OUT OF GREED, FOR THE HEEDS AND IVORY TRADE.

5.“FOR WILD ANIMALS, LIFE IN A TRAVELING SHOW AMOUNTS TO AN EXISTENCE FILLED WITH DEPRIVATION, LONG-TERM CONFINEMENT, AND UNENDING MISERY. THEIR TRAINING INVOLVES HEAVY DOSES OF PUNISHMENT. THEY ARE KEPT IN CAGES OR CHAINED IN TRAILERS AND BOXCARS, AND FORCED TO ENDURE MONTHS OF GRUELING TRAVEL, ALL SO THEY CAN PERFORM SILLY TRICKS” (BREAKING NEWS:RETIREMENT TO COME SOONER FOR RINGLING´S BELEAGUERED ELEPHANTS. A HUMANE NATION. JANUARY 11, 2016). WE DON´T WANT TO SEE ANY ANIMALS CONFINED IN CIRCUSES SHOWS PERFORMING SOMETHING ANIMALS DISLIKE SINCE THAT SOMETHING HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE FOR THEM ALMOST EVERY SINGLE DAY. WE WANT TO SEE ANIMALS FREE IN THE WILD, RESPECT THEM AND HELP THEM SPECIALLY DURING WINTERTIME, BECAUSE WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THEM, FOR THE JOY THEY BRING TO OUR LIVES, FOR THE PEACE THEY ALL MAKE US FEEL AND THE AMAZING FUN WE HAVE WHEN WE FEEL THEM OUT THERE, WHILE THEY ARE FREE AND THEY GET TO KNOW US AND RESPECT US AS WE DO WITH THEM.

6.“TIBETAN PRIME MINISTER-IN-EXILE, LOBSANG SANGAY HAS CONDEMNED THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT´S SPIRITUAL CATALOGUING SYSTEM, WHILE TERMING IT AN ATTEMPT TO CONTROL THE REINCARNATION SYSTEM OF MONKS IN TIBETAN BUDDHISM. HIGHLIGHTING CHINA´S TRACK RECORD OF DESTROYING 98% OF MONASTERIES AND NUNNERIES IN TIBET AS WELL AS DISROBING MONKS AND PUTTING THEM BEHIND BARS, SANGAY SAID THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT LACKS CREDIBILITY AND LEGITIMACY IN SPIRITUAL MATTERS. THE FIRST LIST OF 870 GOVERNMENT-CERTIFIED REINCARNATIONS IN MAINLAND CHINA WAS UNVEILED BY THE BUDDHIST ASSOCIATION OF CHINA. AS OF 2007, THERE WERE MORE THAN 100 LIVING BUDDHAS IN TIBET, ACCORDING TO THE OFFICIAL CHINA DAILY. HOWEVER, TIBETANS LIVING IN DHARAMSALA DECRIED THE MOVE CALLING IT INTERFERENCE BY CHINA IN THE INTRICACIES OF TIBETAN CULTURE AND RELIGION.MEMBERS OF STUDENTS FOR A FREE TIBET (SFT) STAGED A PROTEST AT A MARKET PLACE IN DHARAMSALA TOWN ON THURSDAY. SFT DIRECTOR, DORJEE TSETAN, SAID THEY DON´T ACCEPT THE LIST AS IT DOESN´T FEATURE THE NAME OF TIBETAN SPIRITUAL LEADER THE DALAI LAMA. A PETITION OPPOSING THE LIST WAS ALSO SIGNED DURING THE PROTEST WHICH WAS MAINLY SATIRICAL. THE DALAI LAMA FLED TO INDIA IN 1959 AFTER AN ABORTIVE UPRISING AGAINST CHINESE RULE. THE DALAI LAMA HAS DENIED CHINESE CHARGES HE WANTS TIBETAN INDEPENDENCE OR THAT HE PROMOTES VIOLENCE, SAYING HE ONLY WANTS GENUINE AUTONOMY FOR HIS HOMELAND” (CHINA HAS NO BUSINESS IN INTERFERING IN REINCARNATION SYSTEM, SAYS TIBETAN PM-IN-EXILE/BUSINESS STANDARD NEWS. JANUARY 23, 2016). THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT IS NOT BEING GRATEFUL FOR GENUINE SPIRITUAL HUMAN BEINGS LIKE THE DALAI LAMA AND ALL HIS FOLLOWERS, SINCE THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT DOESN´T RESPECT TIBETANS´ DESIRE TO MAKE TIBET FREE AS AN AUTONOMOUS HOMELAND. GOD MADE US ALL FREE TO EXPRESS OURSELVES WITH RESPECT FOR ONE ANOTHER, AND MADE US FREE TO CLAIM FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSION.

7.“SOUTH KOREA IS A UN COUNTRY. THE UN HELD THEIR CONFERENCE ABOUT #POST2015IN#SEOUL2015 TO DISCUSSS THE NEW MILLENIUM. MEANWHILE, TONS OF THOUSANDS OF CATS AND DOGS ARE COOKED ALIVE, FOR ANCIENT TONICS AND MEDICINES. THERE IS NO LAW IN SOUTH KOREA FOR DOGS AND CATS” (SOUTH KOREAN FOOD TORTURE CULTURE-DOGS AND CATS BOILED ALIVE FOR ANCIENT TONICS AND ELIXIRS. AVAAZ. ORG. COMMUNITY PETITIONS). IT´S TIME THAT THE UN REQUEST SOUTH KOREA TO ENACT A LAW WHICH PROTECTS DOGS AND CATS FROM BEING KILLED FOR ANCIENT TONICS AND MEDICINES. THE UN SHOULD TELL SOUTH KOREA THAT THE SAME AS THERE WERE FRONTLINE FIGHTS, WHICH WERE PART OF THE ROMAN TRADITION WHICH WERE ERADICATED BECAUSE THEY WERE BARBARIC, IT IS THE ONE OF KILLING DOGS AND CATS, PARTICULARLY COOKING THEM ALIVE. THE UN SHOULD TELL SOUTH KOREA TO BE MORE GRATEFUL FOR CATS AND DOGS ENJOYING THEM AROUND INSTEAD OF KILLING ONE-OFF LIVES, LIKE SOME PALEOLITHIC PEOPLE DID.

8.“DESPITE WORLDWIDE OUTCRY AND REPEATED EFFORTS BY ANIMAL ACTIVISTS TO PUT AN END TO THE YULIN DOG EATING FESTIVAL, A YEARLY TRADITION IN YULIN, GUANGXI ZHUANG AUTONOMOUS REGION OF CHINA, THE FESTIVAL DEEPLY ROOTED IN ANCIENT CHINESE TRADITION BEGINS JUNE 21. YULIN RESIDENTS CHERISH THE ANNUAL SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION, WHICH INVOLVES THE MASS TORTURE, SLAUGHTER, AND CONSUMPTION OF ABOUT 100,000 DOGS. ANIMAL RIGHT GROUPS SAY 10,000 DOGS ARE SLAUGHTERED DURING THE FESTIVAL EACH YEAR, AND THAT MANY ARE ELECTROCUTED, BURNED AND SKINNED ALIVE. THESE PICTURES SHOW FLAYED DOGS, DOGS HANGING FROM MEAT HOOKS, AND PILES OF DOG CORPSES ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD” (#STOPYOLIN2015: 10,000 DOGS TORTURED AS PART OF ANNUAL YULIN DOG – EATING FESTIVAL. JUNE 15, 2015). “THE YULIN FESTIVAL BEGAN IN 2009. EACH YEAR, VENDORS BRING DOGS AND CATS TO THE CITY OF YULIN FOR THEIR MEAT, BUTCHER THEM, AND THEN SERVE THE MEAT IN LOCAL STALLS AND RESTAURANTS. DR. PETER LI, A CHINA POLICY ADVISOR AND ACTIVIST WITH HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL, SAID THAT ONE OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES WITH THE FESTIVAL IS THAT THE KILLING IS NOT DONE IN A HUMANE WAY. BECAUSE OF A LARGE NUMBER OF DOGS TO BE SLAUGHTERED, THE DOG MEAT TRADERS DO NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF TIME NOT TO TORTURE EACH ANIMAL IN THE COURSE OF SLAUGHTER, “DR. LI TOLD BUSINESS INSIDER.” HOWEVER, DOGS SUFFER NOT JUST BRUTAL PHYSICAL TRAUMA IN CHINA, THEY SUFFER MENTAL AGONY. THIS IS BECAUSE DOGS AND CATS ARE SLAUGHTERED IN PLAIN VIEW OF OTHER DOGS AND CATS WHO ARE TERRIFIED AND TREMBLING BEFORE THEIR TURN” (DOGS WERE SAVED THANKS TO TWITTER AT THE YULIN FESTIVAL – BUSINESS INSIDER. JUNE 2015). “ACCORDING TO HONG KONG-BASED CHARITY ANIMALS ASIA, THE MAJORITY OF DOG MEAT IN CHINA COMES FROM STOLEN PETS AND STRAYS. THE GROUP SAYS MANY OF THE DOGS ARE TREATED INHUMANELY, KEPT IN TINY CAGES AND POISONED OR BEATEN TO DEATH” (THIS WOMAN SAVED 100 DOGS FROM BEING EATEN AT YULIN FESTIVAL. JUNE 21, 2015). “THE DOG MEAT INDUSTRY HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF MANY UNDERHAND TACTICS INCLUDING THE ILLEGAL CAPTURE OF FAMILY PETS TO USE AS FOOD. A PRICE IS NEGOTIATED BEFORE THE DOG IS KILLED AND COOKED” (CHINA YULIN DOG MEAT FESTIVAL UNDER WAY DESPITE OUTRAGE BBC NEWS. 22 JUNE, 2015). “IN 2015 THE LCA TEAM FORCED THE CLOSURE OF 2 SLAUGHTER OPERATIONS AND WE´RE WORKING ON SHUTTING DOWN MORE OF THESE FACILITIES IN COORDINATION WITH CHINESE LAW THAT WOULD GIVE PROTECTION NOT ONLY TO DOGS AND CATS, BUT TO ALL ANIMALS IN CHINA” (LCA. LAST CHANCE FOR ANIMALS.CHRIS DEROSE. PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER). THOSE LAST LINES REFER TO THE MOST BARBARIC EPISODE SINCE THE JEWS GENOCIDE BY THE NAZIS IN THE WORLD HISTORY. WE´RE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BREATHTAKING DOGS AND CATS GENOCIDE AND WE´RE ALL TO ERADICATE IT. LET´S IMAGINE THOSE DOG AND CAT MEAT TRADERS – MEN MOSTLY – ARE UNSCRUPULOUS PEOPLE WHO GO TO WHOREHOUSES AND SO THEY ARE READY TO DO ALMOST ANY BARBARIC ACT NO MATTER HOW MUCH SUFFERING THEY CAUSE AS LONG AS THEY GET THEY GET THE MONEY FOR THEIR DIRTY VICES. CHINA HAS MADE MILLIONS OF DOGS AND CATS GO THROUGH HELL ALREADY. CHINA HAS MADE OUR HEARTS BLEED TO SEE THOUSANDS OF THESE AWSOME CREATURES TERRIFIED AND TREMBLING BEFORE THEIR NO RETURN TURN. CHINA DOESN´T PLAY FAIR PLAY. CHINA ISN´T GRATEFUL FOR THESE WONDERFUL BEINGS NOR IS GRATEFUL TO ALL THE WORLD COUNTRIES, WHO HAVE HELPED THEM OUT SO MUCH STARTING THOUSANDS OF CHINESE BUSINESSES. WORLD COUNTRIES ARE AGAINST THOSE BARBARIC PRACTICES WHICH MAKE US GO THROUGH MISERY KNOWING OF THEM.

WHEN THE POLITICIANS OF A COUNTRY IGNORE GOD THEY TURN THEIR HEART TO MONEY AND THIS ONE BECOMES THEIR GOD. THESE POLITICIANS MAKE THE PEOPLE FROM THEIR OWN COUNTRIES BELIEVE LIFE IS ABOUT MONEY, AND FOOL THEM MAKING THEM BUY THE IDEA THEY OWN NATURE, ANIMALS AND ANYTHING THEY CAN REACH. THIS IS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE EUPHEMISTICALLY CALLED YULIN “FESTIVAL”. HOW DO CHINESE DARE CALL SICK TORTURE OF DOGS AND CATS DISPLAY “FESTIVAL”,WHICH MAKES ANYONE VOMIT, JUST BY LOOKING AT HOW THESE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES ARE ALL PILED UP INSIDE A NET, SKINNED ALIVE AND BOILED ALIVE?. NEVER HAVE WE SEEN SUCH BARBARISM IN OUR LIVES, WHICH MAKES SHIVERS RUN DOWN OUR SPINES.

CHINA AND THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS HEROINES LIKE THE ANIMAL LOVER AND RETIRED SCHOOL TEACHER FROM TIANJIN, YANG XIAOYUN – 65 YEARS OLD – WHO “REPORTEDLY PAID OVER $1,100 SATURDAY TO SAVE 100 DOGS FROM BEING KILLED AND EATEN AT YULIN” (THIS WOMAN SAVED 100 DOGS FROM BEING EATEN AT YULIN FESTIVAL. JUNE 21, 2015). MRS. YANG XIAOYUN HAS ALREADY LEFT A GOOD MARK IN HISTORY, A MARK OF GENEROSITY AND COMPASSION. WHAT ABOUT YOU, LEADERS AND POLITICIANS? IT´S ABOUT TIME THAT YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS UNPALATABLE TORTURE OUR BELOVED COMPANIONS HAVE GONE AND ARE STILL GOING THROUGH. WE´RE OVERRUN WITH GREED, LIES AND OMISSION BY MOST WORLD LEADERS AND POLITICIANS. PROTECTING ANIMALS LIVES ARE ABOVE DOG MEAT TRADERS GREED. WE´VE NEVER SEEN SUCH MONSTERS TORTURING DOGS AND CATS SO BARBARICALLY, MONSTERS SKINNING THEM ALIVE, THROWING THEM TO ROTATING MACHINERY AND THROWING BOILED WATER ON TOP OF THEM. STILL SOME DOGS DON´T END UP DYING AFTER ALL THAT INHUMANE TORTURE AND SO THESE TORTURERS GO ONE BEATING THEM UP.

WORLD LEADERS, THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY ABOUT PUTTING AN END TO THESE HEINOUS PRACTICES IN YULIN AND IN SOUTH KOREA, AND IT´S MAKING THE FOLLOWING 4 POINTS VERY CLEAR TO CHINA AND SOUTH KOREA:

1NONE OF US WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH COUNTRIES WHO ALLOW INHUMANE TORTURE TO DOGS, CATS AND OTHER ANIMALS.

2. NONE OF US SUPPORT THE YULIN TRADITIONS. NONE OF US SHARE THEIR RETROGRADE STONEAGE TRADITION OF BEATING DOGS AND CATS TO DEATH, ELECTROCUTING, BURNING AND SKINNING THEM ALIVE. THE SAME AS THE ROMANS ERADICATED THE ANACHRONIC FRONTLINE FIGHTS WE WANT CHINA TO BAN IT TOO, BECAUSE WHAT THEY DO IS ANACHRONIC AND INHUMANE AND GOES AGAINST HUMAN BEINGS´ MORAL.

3. NONE OF US WANT TO HEAR SUCH THINGS AS “DOG MEAT HOTPOT, LYCHEES AND STRONG LIQUOR”, BECAUSE IT´S ALL CRIME FOOD.

4. NONE OF US BUYS THAT DOG MEAT IS SUITABLE TO TREAT MALADIES SUCH AS IMPOTENCE AND POOR CIRCULATION. LET´S IMAGINE THAT CHINESE DOCTORS WHO PRESCRIBE DOG MEAT TO TREAT MALADIES SUCH AS IMPOTENCE AND POOR CIRCULATION HAVE BEEN PAID OFF TO SAY SO, EVEN THOUGH IT´S ALL A BIG LIE, SIMPLY TO GET FREE FOOD AND DO BLOODY BUSINESS OUT OF INHUMANE TORTURE TO AMAZING CREATURES.

THE ISSUE OF FOOD TORTURE CULTURE HAS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE UN. IF WE HAVE A LOOK AT THE UN MEMBERS´ AGREEMENTS WE SEE SOME SUCH AS GOOD GOVERNANCE, CIVIL SOCIETY AND CULTURE OF PEACE AMONG MANY. THE UN SHOULD ADVOCATE FOR ENACTING LAWS PROTECTING DOGS, CATS AND ALL ANIMALS FROM INHUMANE TORTURE AND FROM BEING KILLED FOR FOOD SINCE THEY ARE SMART AND PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE HELPING SOCIETY IN MANY WAYS. ALL THESE MILLION CRIMES HAVE MADE A GREAT IMPACT ON US  BECAUSE  WE´VE GOT A HIGH DEGREE OF SENSITIVITY. THE IMPACT OF THESE ILEGITIMATE ACTS MAKE US WONDER ABOUT TODAY´S LEADERS AND POLITICIANS´ MORAL. WE MUST CHANGE ALL WRONGS HERE AND THERE AND WE MUST DO IT WITH ALL OUR MIGHT.WE PETITION WORLD GOVERNMENTS REQUIRE THAT EVERYONE CONVICTED OF ANIMAL CRUELTY UNDER THE CRIMINAL CODE OF ALL WORLD COUNTRIES BE OBLIGATED TO TARGET ANIMAL ABUSE. WE ALSO PETITION WORLD GOVERNMENTS TO REQUIRE THAT CHINA AND SOUTH KOREA SHUT DOWN ALL THOSE TORTURE FACILITIES IN COORDINATION WITH CHINESE AND KOREAN LAW. FINALLY WE URGE WORLD GOVERNMENTS TO REQUIRE JAPAN TO BAN WHALING SINCE ONLY 11% OF JAPANESE BELIEVE WHALING IS THEIR CULTURAL RIGHT AND BECAUSE IT´S NOT A MATTER OF BELIEVING OR NOT BUT OF KNOWING WHAT IS RIGHT FROM WHAT IS INHUMANE.

WE´VE GOT TO GET TOGETHER HELPING EACH OTHER OUT OF GENEROSITY, BECAUSE WE ARE OUR LORD´S CHILDREN AND SO WE´RE BROTHERS AND SO LIFE ISN´T ABOUT GREED AND ABOUT COMPETITION, BUT ABOUT BECOMING BETTER HUMAN BEINGS. YES, WE KNOW WE´VE ALL BEEN FOOLED BY WHAT SOME PEOPLE TOLD US FOR YEARS. BUT IT´S ABOUT TIME THAT WE ALL WAKE UP AND BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL WE HAVE, HELPING DOGS, CATS, ALL ANIMALS AND THE GOOD PEOPLE AROUND US. LIKE JACQUES MARITAIN SAID “GRATITUDE IS THE MOST EXQUISITE FORM OF COURTESY”. “LET US REMEMBER THAT, AS MUCH HAS BEEN GIVEN US, MUCH WILL BE EXPECTED FROM US, AND THAT TRUE HOMAGE COMES FROM THE HEART AS WELL AS FROM THE LIPS, AND SHOWS ITSELF IN DEEDS” – THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

THE SONG “GOD BLESS AMERICA” (1938) WRITTEN BY IRVING BERLIN WAS, ACCORDING TO HIS DAUGHTER, MARY ELLEN BERLIN-BARRETT, “INTENDED AS AN EXPRESSION OF HIS DEEP GRATITUDE TO THE NATION FOR MERELY “ALLOWING” HIM, A RUSSIAN IMMIGRANT RAISED IN POVERTY, TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL SONGWRITER. A FEW OF THESE LYRICS ARE THESE: “GOD BLESS AMERICA, LAND THAT I LOVE”. MR. IRVING SAID THE SONG WAS AN EXPRESSION OF HIS FEELING TOWARD THE COUNTRY TO WHICH HE OWED WHAT HE HAD AND WHAT HE WAS. ACCORDING TO HIS SISTER: “HE OFTEN SAID “I OWE ALL MY SUCCESS TO MY ADOPTED COUNTRY” AND ONCE REJECTED HIS LAWYERS´ ADVICE TO INVEST IN TAX SHELTERS, INSISTING, “I WANT TO PAY TAXES. I LOVE THIS COUNTRY”, NOT LIKE SOME PEOPLE WHO GO TO TAX HAVENS TO EVADE TAXES. MR. IRVING REALLY KNEW WHAT GRATITUDE IS ALL ABOUT.

FOLLOWING THE EXAMPLE OF MR. IRVING BERLIN WE SHOULD ALL LOOK AT THE MANY GOOD THINGS OR THE FEW GOOD THINGS WE HAVE IN OUR LIVES AND THANK GOD FOR THOSE. EXPRESSING GRATITUDE TO GOD HAS TO BE DONE BOTH WITH OUR HEART AND WITH OUR ACTIONS. LET´S HAVE A LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO WITH WHATEVER WE HAVE IN ORDER TO PROTECT DOGS, CATS AND ANIMALS IN GENERAL FROM INHUMANE TORTURE IN CHINA, SOUTH KOREA AND JAPAN. FOR A START WE SHOULD ALL BOYCOTT THESE 3 COUNTRIES NOT TRAVELLING TO THEIR COUNTRIES AS TOURISTS AND NOT BUYING THEIR CAR BRANDS OR PRODUCTS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE LIKE THEIR CARS OR PRICES. WE DON´T WANT ANY MORE SHORTCUTS BUT RECTITUDE WITH WHAT IS WRONG. GOD AND HIS APOSTLES ADVISED US NOT TO HANG AROUND PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO PRINCIPLES BECAUSE EVENTUALLY THEY WOULD BE CRUEL TO US TOO, AND WE´VE ALL EXPERIENCED THAT SOMEHOW DURING OUR LIVES. NOT BUYING THEIR CARS NOR THEIR PRODUCTS WE´LL BE SHOWING THEM THEIR BARBARISM IS WRONG, AND WE ALL MUST URGE ALL WORLD POLITICIANS TO TELL CHINA, SOUTH KOREA AND JAPAN´S AUTHORITIES THAT ANIMAL WELFARE IS IN QUESTION, THAT THIS ANIMAL ABUSE MUST BE STOPPED AND THAT THEY MUST ENACT PROTECTION LAWS FOR DOGS, CATS AND ALL ANIMALS IF THEY REALLY WANT TO GO ON DOING BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH JUST HUMANE HUMAN BEINGS, NOT WITH INHUMANE “POWERFUL” COUNTRIES.

SOMETIMES WE WANT TO GET THINGS WE DON´T REALLY WANT, SOMETIMES WE WANT TO BE TOP MODELS, REPUTABLE ACTRESSES AND POLITICIANS AND WE DON´T BECOME SUCH SIMPLY BECAUSE WE WOULDN´T WANT ANY OF THOSE FOR US. I MYSELF WANTED TO HAVE BECOME A TOP MODEL WHEN I WAS IN MY LATE 20S AND I DIDN´T. BACK THEN I THOUGHT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE CHANCE TO TRY IT. TODAY I AM GRATEFUL FOR NOT HAVING BECOME SUCH BECAUSE I WOULDN´T HAVE BEEN REALLY HAPPY,  JUST HAPPY  TEMPORARILY. I WOULDN´T HAVE GOT TO FEEL THE PERMANENT PEACE AND JOY I FEEL INSIDE MYSELF THANKS TO OUR LORD´S MERCIFUL LOVE FOR ME. AFTER WANTING TO BECOME A TOP MODEL, I WAS EAGER TO BE AN ACTRESS. I WAS GOOD AND I COULD HAVE MADE IT. I FELT EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WHEN IN CANTABRIA AFTER HAVING TAKING PART SUCCESSFULLY IN DRAMATIC ARTS WORKSHOPS AND HAVING APPLIED FOR DOING DRAMATIC ARTS STUDIES I WAS DENIED THE OPPORTUNITY TO START THOSE AND DO WHAT I WANTED BACK THEN. LET´S IMAGINE MY DRAMATIC ARTS TEACHER IN 1995 WAS A GIRL WHO WAS PAID OFF TO DEPRIVE ME OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO START THE DRAMATIC ARTS STUDIES, BECAUSE I WAS A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER WITH RECTITUDE  WHO DID FAIR PLAY IN CANTABRIA BACK THEN, AND THE CMTGS (CONTROLLING MENTALITY TYPE GUYS) DIDN´T LIKE THAT. YES, MY BROTHERS, LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS STARTED DOING THIS MONKEY BUSINESS MUCH BEFORE 2004, THAT IS ABOUT 1995. WHAT CAN I SAY AFTER ALL THESE MANEUVERS IN THE DARK? WELL, I´M SO GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR NOT HAVING BECOME AN ACTRESS SINCE I WOULDN´T HAVE WANTED IT FOR ME. IT WOULDN´T HAVE GIVEN ME THE GREATEST TREASURE OF ALL, OUR LORD´S MERCIFUL LOVE WHICH EMBRACES ME ALL THE WAY.

AFTER WANTING TO BECOME AN ACTRESS I WANTED TO BE A SINGER. I WROTE MY OWN SONGS, RECORDED THEM AND SANG LIVE IN A COUPLE OF PLACES. IN 2000 I CONTACTED SOME OF THE BEST RECORD LABELS AND THEY SAID THAT UNFORTUNATELY THEY EITHER WEREN´T INTERESTED OR FINANTIALLY POWERFUL TO GO AHEAD WITH MY WORK. ONLY ONE, CARLOS SAVAL FROM AZ DISTRIBUCIONES IN MATARÓ, BARCELONA TOOK THE TIME TO GIVE ME A CALL AFTER LISTENING TO MY 4 DEMOS TO TELL ME THAT MY SONGS WERE REALLY GOOD BUT THAT UNFORTUNATELY THEY DIDN´T HAVE THE MONEY TO FINANCE IT. HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT  HE WOULD TRY TO PULL SOME STRINGS TO HELP ME. I WAS CERTAINLY VERY GRATEFUL TO CARLOS SAVAL FOR HAVING CALLED ME AND HAVING TOLD ME ALL THAT. NEVER AGAIN DID I HEAR FROM HIM NOR FROM ANYONE. I  TRIED THE INTERNET BUT THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW SINCE I WAS DECEIVED BY A SWEDEN RECORD LABEL WHO DIDN´T KEEP THEIR WORD. SURE ENOUGH, I WAS LET DOWN FOR HAVING BEEN TRICKED AND FOR NOT HAVING BECOME A FAMOUS SINGER. HOWEVER, NOW I AM GRATEFUL FOR NOT HAVING BECOME A SINGER SINCE I WOULDN´T HAVE WANTED IT. BEING A SINGER WOULDN´T HAVE MADE ME HAPPY. I KNOW HOW THE MUSIC WORLD WORKS AND IT´S NOT SPIRITUAL NOR HUMANE. IF THERE IS SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT THIS LIFE IS BEING HUMANE AND IN FULL CONTACT WITH MY LORD, MY SPIRIT AND YOU SEE THIS GOES A TOTALLY DIFFERENT DIRECTION TO WHERE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY GOES WHOSE ULTIMATE DESTINATION IS MONEY AND LOOKS. DON´T TRY TO LOOK ANY FURTHER BECAUSE YOU WON´T FIND ANYTHING BUT THE RECORD STUDIO WALL OR THE STAGE WALL. IT´S ALL AN ILLUSION!

NEITHER OF US IS PROUD OF HAVING A MEDICINE WHICH IS A PROFIT DRIVEN FORCE. U.S. AUTHORITIES, WE DON´T WANT TO HEAR SUCH DISGUSTING THINGS  AS THE ONES TOLD BY THE HEAD OF THE LARGEST U.S. HMO COMPARING A HOSPITAL TO A WHOREHOUSE: “YOU DON´T MAKE MONEY UNLESS THE BEDS ARE FULL”. REALLY, WE DON´T WANT PEOPLE LIKE THAT ONE IN CHARGE OF HEALTH MATTERS NEITHER IN THE U.S. NOR ANYWHERE. WE´VE GOT TO MAKE EVERYONE UNDERSTAND MONEY MUST NOT BE THE DRIVEN FORCE BUT FAIRNESS AND PEOPLE´S HEALTH. OTHERWISE, IT WOULD BE WRONG AND WRONGS ARE TO BE TURNED INTO RIGHTS SO THAT WE CAN TRULY FEEL APPRECIATIVE OF MEDICINE.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR NOT HAVING MANY OF THE THINGS I WANTED 20-30 YEARS AGO, MAINLY BECAUSE I WOULDN´T BE WITH ALL OF YOU, DOING WHAT I AM PASSIONATELY DOING RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR ENJOYING READING MY ARTICLES, FOR LOVING MY COMPANY, FOR EMPATHIZING WITH ME, FOR SHARING MY THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS AND FOR YOUR SUPPORT. I CAN´T THANK GOD ENOUGH FOR ALL OF YOU. I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING SOME OF YOU AND EMBRACING  YOU.  THERE´S NOTHING LIKE LOVE AND I FEEL LOVE WHENEVER I WRITE, I FEEL OUR LORD´S MERCIFUL LOVE  WON ME OVER IN THE PAST TO GO ON THIS SAME PATH WITH ALL OF YOU, MY BROTHERS. LET´S PLACE OUR BETS ON GOD AND WE´LL FEEL THE LOVE. ARE YOU UP FOR IT?, ARE YOU UP FOR GRATITUDE? YES YOU ARE, AND NOW EVERYTHING CLICKS, RIGHT?

WHY THIS WOLF COMPULSION BACKWARD MOVEMENT ALL OF A SUDDEN?

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHO IGNORES GOD AND HENCE VERY OFTEN IGNORES HUMAN BEINGS´ FEELINGS. WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE UNFORTUNATELY ALL BIG CITIES HAVE THEIR WHOREHOUSES. WHOREHOUSES ARE ALL MEN´S RUIN, BOTH FINANTIAL AND MORAL. WE ALL KNOW MANY RICH MEN, PARTICULARLY WELL-KNOWN SPORTSMEN AND ACTORS WHO HAVE GONE BANKRUPT DUE TO WHORING. THE THING IS THAT MEN IN THEIR STUBBORN PRIDE, DO NOT WANT TO LEARN FROM THE PAST BECAUSE THEY MISTAKENLY THINK ALL THAT IS FROM THE PAST IS NOT GOOD, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY WRONG. OUR JUDGEMENT´S GOAL IS EXACTLY THAT ONE: DECIDE WHAT IS RIGHT AND HEREBY GOOD FROM EACH PERSON, GENERATION, CENTURY, TREND, ETC., RESCUE IT AND MAKE IT OUR OWN. THIS WAY EACH ONE OF US WOULD BE MADE UP OF ONLY RIGHT GOOD STUFF, NO MATTER HOW ANCIENT MIGHT SOME OF IT BE, SAY FOR EXAMPLE JESUS CHRIST´S LEGACY, WHICH RULES OVER ANY OTHER.

THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE VESTED INTERESTS IN THE WHORING BUSINESS, BECAUSE THEY REQUEST IT, BECAUSE THEY GET EASY MONEY OR BOTH. THE KEY POINT HERE FOR ALL OF US, BECAUSE THIS ISSUE AFFECTS US ALL MORE THAN WE REALLY THINK IT DOES, IS THAT IT IS DOING A LOT HARM TO ALL SOCIETIES, TO MANY FAMILIES AND TO TOO MANY MEN ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE BAND THE EAGLES ALREADY WARNED US ABOUT IT IN THEIR SONG HOTEL CALIFORNIA. SOME OF THE LYRICS WHICH HIGHLIGHT THIS KEY POINT HERE ARE THESE: “WE ARE ALL JUST PRISONERS HERE, OF OUR OWN DEVICE. YOU CAN CHECK-OUT ANY TIME YOU LIKE, BUT YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE!” WHAT A BRILLIANT REVEALING DESCRIPTION THE EAGLES DID WHEN THEY DEPICTED WHAT A WHOREHOUSE REALLY IS, AND THE FACT THAT PROSTITUTION DRAGS MEN INTO SEX ADDICTION, NOT BEING ABLE TO QUIT WHEN THEY REALLY WANT TO, BEING PRISONERS OF THEIR OWN “DEVICE”, THAT IS , OF THEIR OWN SEX. THERE IS ANOTHER LINE IN THE SONG HOTEL CALIFORNIA WHICH SAYS: “BUT THEY JUST CAN´T KILL THE BEAST”, WHICH MEANS THAT THE ONES RUNNING THOSE WHOREHOUSES ARE SO HORRIBLE NOONE HAS ANY PIETY FOR ANYONE AND THE PLACE IS A PRISON FROM MANY POINTS OF VIEW: FROM THE SEX ADDICTION POINT OF VIEW AND FROM THE “THE BEASTS” IMPIETY POINT OF VIEW AS WELL.

ALL THESE PEOPLE RUNNING THESE PROSTITUTION HOUSES AND REQUESTING WHORING ARE NOT ON GOD SIDE AND THEY TRY TO STRONGLY DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM STAYING BY GOD, SAYING LIES ABOUT GOD AND STATING GOD DOES NOT EXIT. THESE PEOPLE WHO REQUEST WHORING COME FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE: THE MEDIA, SPORT, LABOR UNIONS, ANIMAL PROTECTION ORGANIZATIONS, EDUCATION, ETC., AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO CARRY OUT TERRIBLE PRACTICES ON BEHALF OF THEIR SEX VICE. MOST OF THEM EARN A LOT AND YET DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO COPE WITH ALL THE MONEY THEY NEED TO FACE THEIR ADDICTION TO SEX, AND MOST OF THOSE REQUESTING PROSTITUTION END UP BOLD OR WITH GREASY HAIR. SO WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? WELL, WHEN THEY REALIZE THE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY THEY HAVE SPENT SO FAR, AND WHENEVER THEY SEE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RIP SOMEONE OFF THEY SURELY DO. YOU SEE, THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD. THEREFORE, IN THEIR MINDS EVERYTHING IS RIGHT AS LONG AS “THEY THINK THEY FEEL ALL RIGHT”. AS THEY DO NOT KNOW GOD THEY DO NOT LOVE GOD. AS THEY DO NOT LOVE GOD THEY DO NOT LOVE ANYONE BUT THEIR OWN EGO, THEIR OWN BODY, THEIR OWN SEX, THEIR OWN EVERYTHING. ON THE OTHER HAND, WHEN THERE IS A GOD UPTURN, THAT IS, WHEN MORE AND MORE PEOPLE START TO REALIZE THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THIS LIFE THAN MONEY AND OUR BODY BUT OUR SPIRIT AND SOUL WHICH NEED GOD, THEN WHOREHOUSES START TO GO BANKRUPT BECAUSE MEN FINALLY REALIZE IT IS THE ONE PLACE ONE SHOULD NEVER GO TO IN THEIR LIVES, IF ONE REALLY WANTS TO BE HAPPY. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE ONES RUNNING WHOREPLACES DO NOT GET THE MONEY THEY WANT TO? FOR SURE HORRIFYING THINGS, LIKE ORGAN TRAFFICKING, SLAUGHTERING ANIMALS TO GET THEIR SKINS, HORNS, ETC, HAPPEN AND ARE ACTUALLY HAPPENING RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT. WE KNOW IT PARTICULARLY WHEN WE READ NEWS SUCH AS: “30 BEARS WERE SLAUGHTERED, INCLUDING LACTATING BEAR MUMS”, LEAVING THEIR CUBS TO CHANCESUCH SLAUGHTERING HAS NEVER HAPPENED. THIS IS SOMETHING SO TREMENDOUSLY HORRIBLE THAT ONLY TREMENDOUSLY HORRIBLE PEOPLE CAN CARRY OUT SUCH KILLINGS.

FREEDOM IS NOT A SAFE PLACE WHEN HUMAN BEINGS KILL INNOCENT ANIMALS. WE HAVE COME TO A POINT WHEN WE LOOK AT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE AND WE REALIZE WE HAVE BEEN TOLD A BUNCH OF LIES ALL ALONG. SOME PEOPLE KEEP ON TRYING TO SPREAD THE INEXISTENCE OF GOD, THE THOUGHT THAT THIS LIFE IS THE ONLY ONE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE, AND THAT OUR GOAL HERE IS JUST TO HAVE FUN. AS A RESULT OF THIS CROCK OF LIES MANY PEOPLE GET SO HOOKED ON REQUESTING SEX THAT CHEATING ON THEIR WIVES AND STEALING TAX PAYERS´ MONEY IS JUST A HEARTBEAT AWAY. WOEFULLY, THIS IS GOING ON TODAY EVERYWHERE. SOME CONFUSED HUMANS THINK LIFE IS ABOUT TROPHIES, SLAUGHTERING SMART ANIMALS LIKE WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, LIONS AND BEARS, TREATING THESE AMAZING CREATURES, ONCE THEY ARE KILLED, AS TROPHIES, IGNORING THEY HAVE FEELINGS, THEY SUFFER WHEN THEY CANNOT FIND ANYTHING TO TAKE TO THEIR CUBS AND SEE THEM DIE, THEY IGNORE THEY HAVE EMOTIONS, THEY IGNORE WE, HUMANS, ARE HERE NOT TO GET TROPHIES BUT TO DO GOOD DEEDS SO THAT WE GROW SPIRITUALLY, THEY IGNORE EACH OF US HAS BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT, THEY IGNORE OUR BRIEF STAY HERE IS JUST A CHAIN OF TESTS WHICH GOD WILL VALIDATE OR NOT THE MOMENT HE DECIDES TO APPEAR, THEY IGNORE THAT GOOD DAY WILL COME SOON AND THEN THERE WILL BE NOT TIME FOR ANYTHING, AND THEY IGNORE THE HELL OF A HORROR THEY WILL FACE ETERNALLY.

PURITY. WHAT HAS BECOME OF SUCH WORD? WHY IS SUCH WORD OF SO MUCH IMPORTANCE TO EACH OF US? WHY DOESN´T THIS WORLD USE LOVE TOOLS TO HELP EVERYONE? WHY DON´T WE TREAT EACH OTHER AS BROTHERS? WHY DO WE SO EASILY FORGET THAT JESUS CHRIST LIVED AMONG US, ENTRUSTED US WITH THE EUCHARIST, AND THAT HE IS COMING BACK ONE DAY, THAT HE ONLY KNOWS WHEN? WHY DO WE IGNORE MOSES´ 10 COMMANDMENTS GOD GAVE HIM FOR US TO FOLLOW?JESUS CHRIST FORSAW HIS BETRAYAL AND ULTERIOR DEATH. ON THE OTHER HAND, GOD DID NOT KNOW THAT ONE OF HIS ANGELS WOULD BECOME THE WORST OF HATERS, AND THAT HIS NAME WOULD BE SATAN. GOD DID NOT FORSEE EITHER THAT ONE OF HIS ANGELS COULD NOT STAND ALL THE ARMY OF ANGELS WORSHIPPING HIM AS THE ONLY ONE LORD ABOVE EVERYTHING. SATAN WAS SO BOLD THAT HE CHALLENGED GOD TO PERVERT THE WORLD. POPE LEO XIII HAD THAT WELL-KNOWN VISION WHILE HE WAS CELEBRATING MASS. POPE LEO XIII SAW HOW SATAN´S CHALLENGE TO GOD WAS SOMETHING LIKE THIS: -DO YOU THINK THE WORLD IS GOING TO LISTEN TO YOU AND FOLLOW YOUR COMMANDMENTS? NO, THEY ARE NOT. I KNOW THAT I CAN TRICK THE WHOLE WORLD TO FOLLOW ME. HOW? I KNOW THEY CAN BECOME EGOCENTRIC, HOOKED ON MONEY, SEX AND DRUGS. ONCE I GET ALL OF THEM HOOKED ON ANY OF THOSE, OR ON ALL THOSE, THE WORLD WILL BE MINE AND NOONE WILL BE SAVED, NOONE WILL GO WITH YOU, TO PARADISE, WHERE NOBODY WORRIES ABOUT MONEY, FOOD, CLOTHES, DISEASES, FUTURE NOR ANYTHING. ONCE THEY FORGET ABOUT YOU, GOD, IT IS WHEN I WILL RULE THE WORLD. JUST GIVE ME TIME AND I WILL RULE – . YOU SEE THE TIME WE ARE LIVING RIGHT NOW IS STILL SATAN´S TIME. GOD WILL COME TO US AND DIVIDE IN SECONDS THE WORLD IN 2 ARMIES, GOD´S AND THE ENEMY´S. GOD IS NOT GOING TO BREAK HIS WORD AS FOR THE CHALLENGE TIME GOD AND HIS ENEMY AGREED ON. SO NOW YOU KNOW, THAT WHEN THINGS GO WRONG IS EITHER SATAN´S FAULT, OUR FAULT OR RETRIBUTION,OK?

THE WAY THE WORLD IS TODAY IS VERY MUCH THE ONE SATAN FORSAW WHEN HE TALKED TO GOD ABOUT THE CHALLENGE TO PERVERT THE WORLD WITH MONEY AND MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF VICE. TODAY PEOPLE, AUTHORITIES, POLITICIANS HARDLY MENTION GOD. MANY DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD, AND MOST IGNORE GOD BECAUSE THEY SORT OF BELIEVE IN HIM AND BECAUSE SOCIETY PRESSURES MAKE THEM FEEL ASHAMED OF THEIR BELIEFS, OF GOD. THEY FEEL THEY ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE REST BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IN GOD, AND THE MAJORITY DO NOT, AND SO THEY FEEL INSECURE AND STRANGE, SINCE SOMETIMES SOME EVEN DARE LOOK DOWN ON THEM OUT OF IGNORANCE AND DISRESPECT. MOST PEOPLE DO NOT SEE THE GOOD BEHIND FOLLOWING GOD, PUTTING INTO PRACTICE GOD´S COMMANDMENTS AND GUIDELINES. MOST ONLY SEE THAT FOLLOWING GOD IMPLIES BEING DIFFERENT, MANY TIMES BEING LOOKED DOWN UPON, BEING LEFT ALONE AND BEING MOCKED AT. MOST DO NOT REALIZE THAT FEELING DIFFERENT AND BEING LOOKED DOWN UPON, LEFT ALONE AND MOCKED AT IS ALL PART OF “CARRYING THE CROSS” JESUS CHRIST TALKS ABOUT WHEN HE TELLS US:   -EVERYONE HAS A CROSS TO CARRY WHILE OUR STAY HERE. CARRY IT NO MATTER HOW “HEAVY, UNPLEASANT, UNJUST OR UNBEARABLE” MAY BE, AND FOLLOW ME AND MY RULES ALWAYS. THEREFORE, EVERYONE HERE HAS A CROSS TO CARRY, THAT IS, EVERYONE GOES THROUGH SOME SITUATIONS, TESTS, WHICH WILL PREPARE HIM HERE TO LOOK INSIDE HIMSELF WHERE GOD IS, TALK TO HIM AND ASK HIM TO HELP HIM THROUGH. THESE LIFE SITUATIONS AND TESTS ARE JUST AN EXCUSE TO GET CLOSER TO GOD. WE ARE SO SPIRITUALLY WEAK AND IMPERFECT THAT ONLY THROUGH SUFFERING WE TURN TO OUR LORD FOR HELP, AND IN DOING SO WE BECOME HUMBLER, MORE HONEST, MORE WARMHEARTED, AND OUR HEARTS WIDER, MUCH MORE THE MORE GENEROUS, THE MORE COMPASSIONATE AND THE MORE TOLERANT WITH EVERYONE WE ARE. FOR SURE, VERY FEW HAVE CHOSEN TO “CARRY THE CROSS”, SINCE MOST GO FOR THE EASY WAY OUT, NOT REALIZING THAT WHAT COMES EASY GOES EASY AS WELL. MOST DO NOT DARE BE DIFFERENT; THEY RATHER FEAR OTHERS´ COMMENTS AND CHOOSE NOT TO LIVE THEIR LIVES AS THEY WOULD REALLY WANT THEM TO AND SHOULD BE TRYING TO. SOMEHOW EVERYONE FACES THE KEY LIFE CHOICE WHICH IS: SHOULD I FOLLOW GOD OR SHOULD I IGNORE HIM? THE ONES WHO CHOOSE GOD BLESS THEMSELVES AND THEIR FUTURE GENERATIONS, PROVIDING THEM WITH THEIR BEST INHERITANCE: FAITH IN GOD. THEIR LIVES AND ACTS´ GOAL IS TO SERVE GOD. ON THE OTHER HAND, THOSE COWARDS WHO WANT TO BE PART OF THE MOB NOT ONLY DO NOT GET TO BE BLESSED WITH TRUE HAPPINESS DURING THEIR LIVES HERE, BUT THEY CURSE THEIR FUTURE GENERATIONS (RETRIBUTION). AND THIS IS THE POINT AT WHICH WE ARE RIGHT NOW, WHERE MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW GOD, WHERE PEOPLE´S ONLY MOTIVATION IN LIFE IS MONEY AND SEX. WHEN PEOPLE´S MOTIVATION IS MONEY, SEX OR BOTH THE MOLOTOV COCKTAIL IS READY TO GO. SINCE NOWADAYS MOST PEOPLE´S DRIVE IS MONEY, SEX OR BOTH, THEN CRIME IS JUST ONE STEP AWAY, AND THIS IS WHY THERE IS SO MUCH CRIME EVERYWHERE WE LOOK AT. HAVING PUT GOD ASIDE FROM OUR LIVES SATAN IS THE ONLY VOICE LEFT WITHIN US, AND HE ALWAYS MAKES US GO FOR THE WORST POSSIBLE CHOICE IN OUR LIVES: GREED, PROSTITUTION, SKIN-IVORY- HUMAN TRAFFICKING, DRUGS, LYING, MURDERING, ABUSE OF POWER, TORTURING, HARASSMENT, BULLYING, DISRESPECT, LACK OF COMPASSION, ENVY AND SPEEDING UP GOING FOR QUANTITY INSTEAD OF QUALITY.

WE ALL MUST TELL THESE CONFUSED HUMANS THEY ARE WRONG. ONCE MR. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA KNOWS ABOUT THIS FACT THERE IS NO TIME TO LOSE. WE, WORLD CITIZENS, ASK MR. PRESIDENT OBAMA TO STOP THIS WOLF COMPULSION BACKWARD MOVEMENT AND TO STICK TO GOD´S GUIDELINES WHICH THEODORE ROOSEVELT FOLLOWED AS WE ARE TO DO TOO, IF WE WANT TO BE CONSIDERED CIVILIZED ONES, RATHER THAN HORRIBLE BEASTS READY TO KILL ANY BEING AS LONG AS THERE IS MONEY ON OUR PLATE. ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS. THE FIRST ONE IS THE RIGHT TO LIVE. NONE HAS THE RIGHT TO KILL ONE MORE WOLF UNLESS WE WANT TO BE THOSE KILLINGS COLLABORATORS, BEING QUITE AND DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT. WE HAVE GOT TO TACKLE THIS INVALID KILLINGS. THE FACT THAT SOME CONFUSED HUMANS HAVE DECIDED TO PICK ON WOLVES, BEARS AND ON WHATEVER ANIMAL THEY SEE THEY CAN TURN A PROFIT FROM, AS THEIR CANNON FODDER, MAKING THEM BE CAUGHT IN CROSSHAIRS OF THEIR GREED DOES NOT VALIDATE SUCH BEHAVIOR. WOLVES CANNOT HOLD THEIR OWN, BUT WE CAN AND ARE ENTITLED TO DO IT. WE WILL SEE THE FRUITS OF OUR LABOUR HELPING WOLVES IN THE FUTURE. WE URGE YOU, MR. PRESIDENT OBAMA TO STOP THIS IRRATIONAL OBSESSION IN GOD´S NAME. WORLD CITIZENS DO NOT BUY THAT “WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT” BECAUSE WE KNOW ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN UTAH AND IN FLORIDA, FOR EXAMPLE. WE KNOW THAT IS A DISGRACE FOR THE U.S.. WE KNOW THAT IN UTAH THERE ARE NO WOLVES LEFT AND YET THEY STILL DARE ASK FOR TAXPAYERS´ MONEY. THIS IS FOUL PLAY AND GOD´S FOLKS DO NOT WANT TO PLAY SUCH BAD TASTE GAME.

“BEN LONG ON “SPORTSMEN”, SO-CALLED SAID THIS: “PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT LEFT AMERICA A RICH LEGACY OF ABUNDANT WILDLIFE AND MILLIONS OF ACRES OF PUBLIC LANDS. BUT INFLUENTIAL AND WELL-HEELED HUNTERS ARE STABBING ROOSEVELT IN THE BACK BY TRYING TO RECRUIT MITT ROMNEY TO UNDERMINE T.ROOSEVELT´S LEGACY. MR. ROOSEVELT CHAMPIONED A SIMPLE IDEA THAT IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL CONSERVATION AND WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT IN NORTH AMERICA. THAT IS THE IDEA THAT WILDLIFE BELONGS TO ALL OF US- NOT JUST TO THE RICH OR THE LAND-OWNING ELITE. THIS IS A UNIQUELY AMERICAN COMMITMENT. THE IDEA THAT WILDLIFE BELONGS TO ALL CITIZENS AND SHOULD BE MANAGED BY PROFESSIONALS USING SOUND SCIENCE IS CALLED THE NORTH AMERICAN MODEL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT. MOST ALL HUNTING AND CONSERVATION GROUPS EMBRACE THE MODEL. BUT NOT EVERYONE. IN PARTICULAR, MEET DON PEAY AND SPORTSMEN FOR FISH AND WILDLIFE. SFW WAS FOUNDED IN UTAH AND HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WEST. ONE STATE AT A TIME, IT IS DISMANTLING THE VERY IDEA OF A PUBLIC WILDLIFE RESOURCE, AND REPLACING IT WITH SPECIAL PRIVILEGES FOR THE PRIVILEGED. IN MONTANA, SFW IS PRESSURING COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO CIRCUMVENT THE STATE WILDLIFE COMMISSION ON PREDATOR MANAGEMENT. IN ARIZONA AND IDAHO, SFW IS LOBBYING LEGISLATURES TO ALLOW LANDOWNERS TO OWN AND SELL HUNTING PRIVILEGES, INDEPENDENT OF THE RULES ALL OTHER CITIZENS HAVE TO LIVE BY”(THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE. “SPORTSMEN” SO-CALLED. MARCH 28, 2012).

“IT LOOKS LIKE SFW FOUNDER, DON PEAY, WILL BE GETTING A NICE FAT CHECK, $3OO,OOO TO BE EXACT, OF TAXPAYER MONEY, THANKS TO THE UTAH LEGISLATURE´S “NATURAL RESOURCES BUDGET COMMITTEE”, TO LOBBY AGAINST.DON PEAY IS ALSO A FOUNDER OF BIG GAME FOREVER” (HOWLING FOR JUSTICE. BLOGGING FOR THE GRAY WOLF. TOO BAD “UTAH LEGISLATURE-74% OF UTAHNS WANT TO BRING WOLVES HOME…” ).

“BIG GAME FOREVER (BGF), A UTAH-BASED NONPROFIT THAT SPUN OFF SPORTSMAN FOR FISH AND WILDLIFE IN 2010, HAS SECURED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN STATE MONEY DURING THE PAST FOUR YEARS TO EVICT THE GRAY WOLF FROM THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST. BUT THE GROUP´S FOUNDERS DON PEAY AND RYAN BENSON HAVE NOT DISCLOSED WHERE THE MONEY GOES ON IN THEIR REPORTS TO THE LEGISTLATURE AND TO THE UTAH DIVISION OF WILDLIFE RESOURCES (DWR). BUT BECAUSE BGF “COMMINGLES” ITS FUNDS FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES, IT MIGHT NOT BE POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE EXACTLY WHAT UTAH TAXPAYERS´ MONEY BOUGHT ACCORDING TO LEGISLATIVE AUDITOR GENERAL JOHN SHAFF (DON PEAY/HOWLING FOR JUSTICE. AUDIT LAUNCHED INTO ANTI-WOLF FUNDING). BIG GAME FOREVER IS EXPECTED TO REAP ANOTHER $300,000 – ITS FOURTH AWARD OF STATE MONEY – IN 2013 TO CARRY ON THE FIGHT TO SHIFT WOLF MANAGEMENT FROM THE FEDS TO THE STATES AND BLOCK WOLF INTRODUCTION IN UTAH. FOR SENATE MINORITY LEADER GENE DAVIS, D-SALT LAKE CITY, THE REPORT BUTTRESSES HIS CALL FOR A LEGISLATIVE AUDIT OF BGF´S CONTRACTS. “I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THEY DID TO SPEND THE MONEY”, SAID DAVIS, WHO SAYS LAWMAKERS SHOULD GET AN ACCOUNTING BEFORE RELEASING THE NEXT $300,000. “THERE IS NOTHING IN HERE THAT TALKS ABOUT THE CURRENT DOLLARS”(THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE. ANTI-WOLF GROUP VAGUE ON HOW IT SPENT UTAH TAXPAYER FUNDS. JULY 5, 2013).

““BGF, DON PEAY AND THE UTAH LEGISLATURE MAY WANT TO STOP WOLVES FROM RETURNING TO UTAH BUT 74% OF THE STATE´S CITIZENS ARE IN FAVOR OF REINTRODUCTION. IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT THE END GAME, THE DAY WHEN WOLVES REACH SOME MAGICAL NUMBER AND THEN THE SLAUGHTER BEGINS. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND GREAT LAKES. WOLVES ARE NEVER GOING TO BE SAFE UNDER STATE MANAGEMENT”. THIS BLOG IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF WOLF 253, THE BELOVED YELLOWSTONE DRUID WOLF NAMED LIMPY, WHO WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN MARCH 08, ON THE VERY DAY ESA PROTECTIONS WERE LIFTED FOR THE GRAY WOLF, BY THE THEN BUSH ADMINISTRATION” (HOWLING FOR JUSTICE. BLOGGING FOR THE GRAY WOLF. TOO BAD “UTAH LEGISLATURE-74% OF UTAHNS WANT TO BRING WOLVES HOME…”). THE FACT THAT 74% OF THE PEOPLE APPROVE OF WOLVES MUST BE PREVALENT OVER WHAT HUNTERS, RANCHERS AND POWERFUL ORGANIZATIONS MAY WANT OUT OF GREED, IN THIS CASE, KILL WOLVES. THE ONES WANTING TO KILL WOLVES ARE A MINORITY OF PEOPLE IN THE WEST. THE MAJORITY DO NOT WANT SPORTSMEN BREAK OUT THEIR GUNS AGAINST WOLVES. WOLVES ARE SOCIAL AND DO NOT DESERVE THESE KILLINGS. TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE LIMIT OF WOLVES THE REINTRODUCTION OF WOLVES IS NOTHING BUT A DIRTY TRAP FOR THESE SMART, SOCIAL CREATURES WHO SUFFER MENTAL ANGUISH LIKE WE, HUMAN BEINGS DO. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, WE WANT YOU TO BRING AN ETHICS REFORM BILL AS TO THE PROTECTION OF WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, LIONS AND BEARS TO A VOTE. WE WANT YOU TO ENLIST THE MEXICAN GRAY WOLF BACK AS AN ENDANGERED SUBSPECIES. WE WANT YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT SUCH HORRIFIC WOLF AND BEAR KILLINGS ARE NOT SPORT WHATSOEVER. IT IS BARBARISM AND MUST BE PENALIZED ONCE THE LAW IS ENACTED, NOT TO BE CHANGED BY ANY OTHER PRESIDENT IN THE FUTURE SINCE GOD´S LAWS ARE HERE TO STAY WITH US UNTIL THE END. THEREFORE, MR. PRESIDENT OBAMA, WE ASK YOU TO REVERT BACK TO THEODORE ROOSEVELT´S NORTH AMERICAN MODEL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT. MR. ROOSEVELT MADE DECISIONS ON LOGICAL THOUGHT AND THAT IS WHAT WE WANT. SINCE WOLVES, ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE ARE PART OF ALL CITIZENS A LAW MUST BE ENACTED TO BAN SELLING AND OWNING HUNTING PRIVILEGES TO KILL OUR MAMMAL NEIGHBORS AND BAN SELLING WILDLIFE LAND AS WELL. WE ASK YOU TO GO ALONG WITH GOD´S GUIDELINES, WHICH HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE KILLINGS. WHY ARE WOLVES SO DEMONIZED? ALL BAD THINGS SAID ABOUT THEM ARE MYTHS, NOT FACTS, AND THEREFORE LIES. THESE LIES HAVE HAD THEIR PROJECTION IN LEGISLATION AGAINST THESE ONCE WORSHIPPED BEINGS AMONG EGYPTIANS, JAPANESE, ROMAN, GREEKS AND NATIVE AMERICANS TO NAME A FEW. WE DO NOT BUY LIES SUCH AS THESE:

1.WOLVES ATTACK LIVESTOCK AND PETS.

2.THESE “KILLING PROGRAMS” ARE NECESSARY.

3.WOLVES ARE THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF CATTLE LOSSES. IT IS TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH. DISEASE, REPRODUCTION AND WEATHER IS WHAT IS BEHIND CATTLE LOOSES.

4.THRILL KILLING LIKE THE ONE IN AERIAL HUNTING IN ALASKA WHERE WOLVES ARE CHASED BY A PLANE WHILE BEING SHOT. THESE ONES SHOOTING WOLVES SAY THEY WANT PREDATOR CONTROL, BUT THAT IS A BIG LIE. THEY TAKE LARGE NUMBERS OF WOLVES AND BEARS TO DIMINISH SO THAT THERE ARE MORE PREYS (MOOSE AND CARIBOUS) FOR ALL HUNTERS. ALL THIS IS REALLY SICKENING.

WOLVES ARE NOT VILLAINS. THEY ARE REALLY SMART AND PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN OUR ECOLOGICAL SYSTEM MAKING VEGETATION MORE DIVERSE AND THEIR PREYS, SIMPLY BY THEIR PRESENCE. WOLVES HAVE BEEN U.S. INHABITANTS FOR CENTURIES AND THEY DO NOT NEED US TO KILL THEM BUT TO HELP THEM SO THAT WOLVES CAN HELP US BACK AS WELL IN MANY WAYS, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE:

1.BECOMING OUR DEAR FRIENDS WHO WILL ALWAYS BE THERE.

2.FINDING OUT INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT THEM WHICH WILL BE LIFE LESSONS FOR US ALL.

3.MAKING US LAUGH WITH THEIR EYES, FACES, GESTURES, POSTURES, JUMPS, RUNS AND TONS OF OTHER THINGS.

4.HELPING US WITH OUR HEALTH.

5.MAKING OUR CHILDREN WISER AND MORE MATURE.

6.MAKING OUR FRIENDS HAVE FUN.

MR.PRESIDENT OBAMA, WOLVES NEED A PROTECTED STATUS, LIKE THE ONE THEY HAD WITH THEODORE ROOSEVELT. WE URGE YOU TO TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROTECTING OUR MAMMAL NEIGHBORS OUT OF JUSTICE.

LET US SUPPORT THE JUDGE MALLOY DONATING MONEY FOR THIS CAUSE AND MAKING CAMPAIGNS ALL OVER THE PLACE. LET US PRIORITIZE WHEN IT BOILS DOWN TO INNOCENT CREATURES WHO CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES AND ARE ENTITLED TO BE PROTECTED AND HELPED BY ALL OF US, SPECIALLY IN WINTER WHEN THERE IS NO FOOD FOR THEM OUT THERE. BECAUSE OF THE BALANCED ECOSYSTEM WOLVES PROVIDE US WITH IT IS ONLY FAIR TO CHERISH THEM, TAKE CARE OF THEM AS MUCH AS WE CAN, FEED THEM PARTICULARLY DURING WINTER SO THAT THEY CAN SURVIVE, AND BY DOING THAT WE WILL BE MAKING ONE OF THOSE WONDERFUL MIRACLES WHICH IS MAKING A FRIEND FOR LIFE. NO, NOT ONE OF THOSE ONLINE FRIENDS WHO WE DO NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE, HOW THEY FEEL, WHAT THEY REALLY LIKE, ETC. WE MEAN A TRUE FRIEND WHO YOU LOOK IN THE EYE AND WITHOUT A WORD YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. YES, THIS HAPPENS BETWEEN ANIMALS AND WE, HUMANS, BETWEEN CATS, DOGS, WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, GIRAFFES, LIONS, BEARS AND WE. THE FACT THAT WE ARE SMARTER THAN OUR MAMMAL NEIGHBOURS DOES NOT GRANT US THE RIGHT TO KILL THEM. IT IS A CRIME TO DO SO. WE HAVE SEEN, READ AND CRIED ALREADY FAR TOO MANY CRIMES, AND WE FIND IT ALL AN UNBEARABLE HEARTBREAKING SITUATION, WHICH HAS TO BE STOPPED. MR. OBAMA, GOD GAVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY OF BECOMING PRESIDENT AND YOU ARE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB SO FAR. WE NEED YOU, WOLVES NEED YOU AND GOD NEEDS YOU TO STOP THESE CRIMES EVEN, IF YOU HAVE TO CALL HUNDREDS OF CORRUPT ONES OUT. THE U.S. AND THE REST OF THE WORLD NEED AN URGENT CLEANING! MR. PRESIDENT, GO AHEAD AND STRAIGHT UP, SINCE SO MUCH PRECIOUS TIME HAS BEEN WASTED, AND LET WOLVES, YOU, ALL THE GOOD GUYS BEHIND YOU AND US HAVE THE LAST LAUGH HERE. WILL YOU DO THAT FOR US, FOR GOD? WOLVES ARE GOOD FOR THE U.S.. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM. IF WE DO NOT HELP THEM EXCUSING OURSELVES, SAYING TO OURSELVES THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO THEN WE WILL JUST BE LYING TO OURSELVES, AND LIFE WILL DO THE SAME TO US SOMEHOW, SOMEWHERE. TROPHIES, COMPETITIONS, FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING COMPARED TO A MAMMAL´S LIFE, SPECIALLY A WOLF ONE. GOD AND ALL HUMAN BEINGS WHO REALLY FOLLOW GOD ARE CRYING OUT FOR HELP, FOR IT IS HEARTBREAKING SEEING WOLVES ARE BEING KILLED BY GUYS WHOSE ONLY INTEREST IS GREED AND SEX. THESE GUYS ARE NOT ONLY FIGHTING INNOCENT WOLVES BUT GOD HIMSELF AND ALL THE ONES WHO FOLLOW GOD´S STEPS.

THE NATIONAL WHISTLEBLOWER CENTER IS NOW LEADING A CAMPAIGN TO USE WHISTLE BLOWERS TO EXPOSE WILDLIFE TRAFFICKING NETWORKS. AS FAR BACK AS 1981. CONGRESS ATTEMPTED TO STRENGTHEN WILDLIFE PROTECTION EFFORTS BY INTRODUCING WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTIONS. THEY AMMENDED SEVEN LAWS, INCLUDING THE ENDANGERED SPECIES AND LACEY ACTS TELLING SEVERAL DEPARTMENTS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO WORK WITH WHISTLEBLOWERS TO STOP WILDLIFE CRIMES. YET FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED TO IMPLEMENT THESE LAWS AND CREATE AN INCENTIVE PROGRAM FOR WILDLIFE WHISTLEBLOWERS. THE NATIONAL WHISTLEBLOWER CENTER IS NOT WAITING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO ACT. MONETARY REWARD LAWS WORK TO ENCOURAGE INSIDERS TO COME FORWARD WITH HIGH QUALITY INFORMATION EXPOSING ESSENTIAL DETAILS OF CORRUPT ENTERPRISES. SINCE 1986, THE DOJ, IRS AND SEC PROGRAMS HAVE COLLECTIVELY RECOVERED OVER $50 BILLION DOLLARS. WHISTLEBLOWER REWARDS PROVISIONS WORK. IF THE WHISTLEBLOWER PROVISIONS IN THE U.S. WILDLIFE PROTECTION LAWS HAD BEEN IMPLEMENTED, IMMEASURABLE DEVASTATION COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. THAT SOLUTION SEEKS TO CREATE A COMPUTER SYSTEM TO PERMIT WHISTLEBLOWERS TO SAFELY COMMUNICATE THEIR ALLEGATIONS TO APPROPIATE AUTHORITIES. WASHINGTON, D.C. NOVEMBER 30, 2015. A GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE REPORT ISSUED TODAY CONFIRMED THAT THE IRS WHISTLEBLOWER OFFICE HAS MADE 500 AWARDS TO WHISTLEBLOWERS AMOUNTING TO OVER $315 MILLION IN CLAIMS PAID SINCE 2011” (NWC. HONESTY WITHOUT FEAR. WHISTLEBLOWER NEWS). LET US ALL BACK UP THE NECESSARY INICIATIVE OF WHISTLEBLOWERS EXPOSING RELEVANT FACTS OF CORRUPT ONES, SO THAT PEOPLE PRESS CHARGES AGAINGST THOSE CARRYING OUT BAD PRACTICES. LET US ALL COME FORWARD TO SAY THERE ARE CORRUPT PRACTICES WHEREVER WE SEE THEM. LET US FIGHT ON ALL FRONTS TO PRESERVE OUR NATURAL HERITAGE FROM THE LUCRATIVE MARKET OF THE GREEDY ONES. THIS IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY. SOMETIMES GREED AND SEX VICE LEADS TO LOOK FOR SOMETHING OR SOMEONE WHO CAN BE TAKEN AS CANNON FODDER, LIKE WOLVES IN THIS CASE, AS THE PERFECT EXCUSE TO REQUEST FUNDS TO LATER ON USE MOST OF THEM IN SOMETHING ELSE WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GOALWE, WILDLIFE SUPPORTERS, URGE SCIENCE AND PUBLIC POLICY TO APPEAL THIS TAXPAYERS´ MONEY WAR AGAINST INNOCENT WOLVES. WOLVES ARE THE CANNON FODDER IN THIS MACABRE SITUATION WE ARE IN. YES, GOD IS TESTING ALL OF US ON THIS SITUATION: WHETHER WE DO SOMETHING HELPING WOLVES, OR RATHER CHOOSE THE EASY WAY OUT EXCUSING OURSELVES NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT, LIKE MOST TIMES UNFORTUNATELY HAPPENS, WHICH GOD DOES NOT VALIDATE AS GOOD BY THE WAY. OUT THERE IN THE WEST, WOLVES ARE SITTING DUCKS FOR SWINDLERS, WHO ONLY WANT TO USE WOLVES AS EXACTLY THAT, SITTING DUCKS, SO THAT THEY CAN FORMULATE FALSE PROPAGANDA TO GET WHAT THEY LONG FOR, A BIG CASH COW.

LET US IMAGINE THESE LAWMAKERS, RANCHERS, BIG GAME HUNTERS, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION (NRA), SAFARI CLUB INTERNATIONAL (SCI) AND THE CONGRESSIONAL SPORTMEN´S FOUNDATION (CSF) ARE ALL CORRUPT AND THEY ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN STEALING TAXPAYERS´ MONEY. LET US IMAGINE THAT THE INDIVIDUAL REPRESENTING SPORTSMEN FOR FISH AND WILDLIFE AND BIG GAME FOREVER, WHO DISTRIBUTED A PRESS RELEASE ON FRIDAY, MARCH 11TH, 2015 IS A RIGHTEOUS PERSON WHO CANNOT TOLERATE SUCH LYING FROM THE MEMBERS OF THOSE ORGANIZATIONS. LET US IMAGINE THIS INDIVIDUAL FOUND OUT THAT THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE ALL CORRUPT AND THAT THEY ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN SUCKING IN TAXPAYERS´ MONEY AND LAWMAKERS. LET US IMAGINE ALL OF THEM LIVE IN REALLY BIG MANSIONS. LET US IMAGINE THEY PAID THOSE HOUSES WITH U.S. TAXPAYERS´ MONEY. LET US IMAGINE THIS INDIVIDUAL DELIBERATELY CHANGED THE INFORMATION GIVEN BY NRA, SCI AND CSF, MAKING ONE OF HIS OWN BECAUSE HE WANTED TO PROTECT GRAY WOLVES FROM BEING KILLED. “THE RELEASE IN QUESTION CLAIMED THAT THE NRA, SCI AND CSF ALONG WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS ARE OPPOSED TO LANGUAGE RELATING TO THE DELISTING OF GRAY WOLVES IN SPENDING LEGISLATION CURRENTLY PENDING BEFORE THE U.S. CONGRESS. IN FACT, THESE ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORT THAT LANGUAGE, AS WELL AS EVERY OTHER MEASURE THAT HAS BEEN INTRODUCED IN THE U.S. HOUSE AND SENATE TO DATE ADDRESSING THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE”(NRA, SCI AND CSF DISAVOW MISLEADING PRESS RELEASE). LET US IMAGINE THAT INDIVIDUAL IS A HERO HAVING WRITTEN SUCH DRAFT AND HAVING IT CIRCULATED TO REVEAL THE DIRT INSIDE THOSE ORGANIZATIONS, AND WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO SAVE OUR BELOVED GRAY WOLVES. LET US IMAGINE THE STRONG LANGUAGE OF THE DRAFT RELEASE IS FALSE BECAUSE THEIR ONLY INTEREST IS GETTING MONEY EVEN IF IT IS ALL A BIG LIE. WHO SAID THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MAY NOT USURP STATE MANAGEMENT DECISIONS? NOBODY, AND EVEN IF THERE WERE A LAW AGAINST IT, IT SHOULD BE INVALIDATED RIGHT AWAY BY MR. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, BEARING IN MIND ALL THE BIG LIES AND EVIL DONE TO WOLVES AND OTHER INNOCENT ANIMALS.

LET US IMAGINE UTAH RANCHERS AND BIG GAME HUNTERS WERE LYING TO AMERICANS AND TO THE WORLD WHEN THEY SAID THE FOLLOWING: “THE WOLF IS AN ECONOMIC DISASTER FOR UTAH´S RURAL COMMUNITIES, KILLING SHEEP AND CATTLE AND HURTING ELK HERDS AND THE MOOSE POPULATION” (FOX 13 SALT LAKE CITY. UTAH PAYS HIGH-PRICED LOBBYIST TO DE-LIST WOLVES. MAY 1, 2015). LET US IMAGINE THAT WAS A DIRTY LIE LAUNCHED AS AN EXCUSE TO GET MONEY. LET US IMAGINE THOSE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ANY PRINCIPLES AND THEIR GOAL IS MONEY NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES, NO MATTER HOW MANY PRECIOUS LIVES THEY KILL, NOR THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES IN THE STATE FOUNDING COFFERS. “THE STATE LEGISLATURE HAS SIDED WITH THAT POINT OF VIEW, PASSING A WOLF MANAGEMENT BILL IN 2010 THAT ASKS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO REMOVE WOLVES THAT ENTER THE STATE. THAT BILL HAD A FISCAL NOTE SAYING IT WOULD COST NOTHING, BUT THAT SAME YEAR, LAWMAKERS STARTED FUNDING LOBBYING EFFORT THAT CONTINUES TO TODAY, AMOUNTING TO $1.3 MILLION THUS FAR, MOST OF IT GOING TO HIRE ONE LOBBYIST”(FOX 13 SALT LAKE CITY.UTAH PAYS HIGH-PRICED LOBBYIST TO DE-LIST WOLVES. MAY 1, 2015). LET US IMAGINE IT WAS ALL PERFECTLY PLANNED TO SAY ONE THING THAT DAY AND THE OPPOSITE ONE THAT VERY SAME DAY REGARDING THAT FISCAL NOTE THE WOLF MANAGEMENT BILL (2010) HAD. LET US IMAGINE THOSE LAWMAKERS ARE NOT FUNDING ANY LOBBYING EFFORTS BUT SUCKING IN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM U.S. TAXPAYERS, AMOUNTING TO $1.3 MILLION TO THIS DAY, AND ALL BEHING CLOSE DOORS.

LET US NOT VIOLATE GOD´S LAWS. BEARING IN MIND ALL THESE LIES AND CRUELTY TO MAGNIFICENT MAMMALS SUCH AS WOLVES LET US ASK WORLD LEADERS TO ENFORCE INTERNATIONAL LAWS TO PENALIZE ANY KILLINGS OF ANIMALS AND TO ENACT THESE BILLS TO SORT THIS NEEDLESS SUFFERING AND INJUSTICE OUT:

1.NOONE CAN DO BUSINESS WITH WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, LIONS, BEARS, RHINOS NOR WITH WHALES.

2.NOONE CAN SELL OUR PARKS AND OUR FORESTS TO ANYONE. IF THERE ARE PARKS AND FORESTS SELLING CONTRACTS ALREADY TO OTHER COUNTRIES, THESE CONTRACTS MUST BE INVALIDATED SINCE THEY ARE AGAINST GOD´S NATURAL LAW AND AGAINST THEODORE ROOSVELT´S NORTH AMERICAN MODEL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT, THE LAWS MOST WORLD CITIZENS FOLLOW AND WANT TO PROTECT UNTIL THE END. ONLY THEN WOLVES WILL STOP BEING RENEGADES WHO ARE DENIED THE MOST BASIC THING UNDER THE SUN, THE LAND, LIKE IT IS HAPPENING IN UTAH, IDAHO, MONTANA AND WYOMING, WHERE SOME SEEM TO IGNORE WOLVES´ RIGHTS.

3.WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE INFO TRANSPARENCY IS A MUST AND SO A LIST OF NAMES OF ALL THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE POURING SO MUCH MONEY INTO THESE BARBARIC ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD BE MADE PUBLIC. HAVING THIS LIST WITH ALL THE NAMES OF THE POLITICIANS INVOLVED IN SUCH BLOODY DIRTY BUSINESS ALL WORLD CITIZENS WILL KNOW WHO TO VOTE TO, WHO TO SPEAK TO, WHO TO TRUST TO, WHO TO TURN IT DOWN TO AND WHO TO CHANNEL SURF FROM. THE SAME CRYSTAL CLEAR TRANSPARENCY ALL GOVERNMENTS REQUIRE WORLD CITIZENS REGARDING THEIR TAX REVENUE THE SAME CRYSTAL CLEAR TRANSPARENCY WE ALL REQUIRE AND DESERVE FROM EACH   POLITICIANS´ MOVES, WHETHER IT IS A PRIVATE DONATION OR NOT. TODAY, SECURITY IS FACTOR NUMBER ONE AND SO TRANSPARENCY IS A MUST IN EVERYTHING, EVEN IN DONATIONS AND ALL. YES, WE HAVE GOT TO COME TO THIS POINT,WHERE THIS LIST IS MORE THAN NECESSARY!

4.ALL DELISTING PROGRAMS MUST BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY SINCE THEY ARE KILLING RELEVANT MAMMALS WHO HAVE PROVED SO HELPFUL TO US THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IF WE CARE FOR THEM. WOLVES ARE VALUABLE ASSETS TO A BALANCED ECOSYSTEM.

5.BAN ALL DISREGARD FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF CITIZENS FROM ALL STATES OPPOSING KILLING WOLVES.

6.HUNTING IS WRONGLY CONSIDERED SPORT. THEREFORE, A NEW LAW MUST BE MADE STATING HUNTING IS NOT A SPORT AND ADD THE FOREMENTIONED BAN ON ALL KINDS OF HUNTING, ON HUNTING QUOTAS AND ON BOUNTY TROPHY-HUNTING PROGRAMS. A BAN ON ALL AERIAL GUNNING OF ANIMALS. WHY? BECAUSE WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, LIONS, BEARS, RHINOS, ETC, ARE BEINGS WHO HAVE FEELINGS AND SO THEY SUFFER, THEY FEEL ANGUISH AND LOVE, AND DESERVE TO LIVE AS GOD MADE IT CLEAR TO NOAH. NOT ONLY DID OUR LORD WANT NOAH TO SURVIVE SINCE HE, TOGETHER WITH SEVEN MORE PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE WORLD IN NOAH´S TIMES, DESERVED IT BUT ALSO ALL ANIMALS SINCE THEY ARE INHERENTLY GOOD, NOT LIKE SOME CRUEL HUMAN BEINGS WHO ONLY THINK OF MONEY AND TROPHIES AND DO ANYTHING NO MATTER HOW BARBARIC IT IS TO GET IT, AND SO NOT ENTITLED TO DESERVE SALVATION, NOR PARADISE WHEN OUR GOOD DAY COMES.

7.WHEN A STATE BREAKS THE LAW THEN EMERGENCY MEASURES MUST BE TAKEN. THIS IS THE CASE OF UTAH WHERE FISCAL CONSERVATIVES RAISE TAXES ON FUEL AND PROPERTY, BECAUSE THEY RIP PEOPLE OFF TELLING EVERYONE THEY HAVE SPENT MILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS TO ELIMINATE WOLVES, WHEN THE AWFUL TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT THERE IS NOT ONE WOLF LEFT IN UTAH. AN EXCEPTION TO THE RULE MUST BE MADE HERE RIGHT NOW INVALIDATING ALL UTAH CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS IN UTAH AND IN OTHER STATES, GIVING TAXPAYERS MONEY TO THEIR LOBBIES.

8.BAN ON KILLING WOLVES FOR THE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY.

9.BAN ON ALL COMMERCIAL-TRAPPING SEASONS AND RAT POISONS ON WOLVES.

10.BAN ON ANY LOOPHOLES THE FEDERAL LEGISLATION MAY HAVE, CREATING THE NECESSARY LAWS IN ORDER TO PROTECT WOLVES AND OTHERS.

SB-218 BY SEN. TRAVIS HUTSON AND HB-105 BY REP. JIMMIE SMITH ARE BILLS TO STOP PEOPLE ON GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE FROM TRADING FOOD AID EBT CARDS FOR FIREARMS. IN THE HOUSE CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE MEETING WEDNESDAY, 11/4/2015, HB-105 WAS HEARD AND CAME TO A VOTE. ALL NINE REPUBLICANS AND ONE DEMOCRAT VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE BILL. TO HIS CREDIT, DEMOCRAT, DAVE KERNER (D-PALM SPRINGS) VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE BILL” (NRA-ILA. FLORIDA: UNBELIAVABLE-3 DEMOCRATS AGAINST STOPPING GUN BUYS WITH WELFARE CARDS. NOVEMBER 5, 2015).

I RECOMMEND YOU GO AND SEE THE MOVIE NOBODY WANTS THE NIGHT BY ISABEL COIXET, STARRING JULIETTE BINOCHE. THE MORAL OF THE MOVIE IS THAT ONCE YOU KNOW THE PURITY AND GENEROSITY OF SOMEONE IS WHEN YOU REALIZE THE LIFE YOU HAVE LIVED SO FAR IS NOTHING BUT A BAD JOKE. MRS. PEARY´S (JULIETTE BINOCHE´S ) FINAL WORDS ARE SIMPLY OUTSTANDING IN THE OVERWHELMING END: “AFTER GETTING TO KNOW THE PUREST AND MOST GENEROUS HUMAN BEING MY SOUL WILL BE UNABLE TO FACE SO MUCH DARKNESS”. WHAT DOES MRS. PEARY MEAN BY THAT? SHE MEANS THAT ONCE SHE GETS SAVED FROM DYING FROM FREEZING COLD AND HUNGER NEAR THE NORTH POLE, AND FINDS HERSELF BACK IN HER CONFORTABLE WORLD, HER SOUL WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO BEAR SUCH EMPTINESS, HYPOCRISY, COLDNESS AND GREED AS THERE IS IN OUR WORLD. ALL THIS EMPTINESS AND GREED IS THE SAME AS DARKNESS, WHEREAS LOVE, GENEROSITY, COMPASSION, HARD-WORK AND HONESTY ARE CONNECTED WITH THE SUN, THE MORNING, THE LIGHT, THE LIFE WE ALL NEED TO LOVE AND WHICH THIS WORLD TODAY DOES NOT PROVIDE US WITH. IT ONLY PROVIDES US WITH MONEY AND MATERIAL THINGS AND THESE ARE CONNECTED WITH DARKNESS IF THEY ARE NOT USED PROPERLY AND FOR THE RIGHT REASONS. YOU SEE, MRS. PEARY MET ALLAKA (ESKIMO GIRL STARRING RINKO KIKUCHI) WHO HELPED HER IN SO MANY WAYS NOONE EVER DID AND WHO EVEN GAVE HER LIFE SO THAT SHE COULD SURVIVE. AFTER HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY OF GETTING TO TASTE PURITY AND GENEROSITY IN SUCH WHOLESOME WAY WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHY SHE SAYS THAT SHE WILL NO LONGER SEE THE SUN, AND NO LONGER BE REALLY HAPPY AGAIN.

SOME WORLD CITIZENS KNEW ABOUT THE JEW GENOCIDE TALKING PLACE IN NAZI GERMANY AND YET NONONE OF THOSE DID ANYTHING. IN 1995 THE BALKANS GENOCIDE BY THE SERBS TOOK PLACE AND NOONE DID ANYTHING TO STOP IT EITHER. AND NOW A THIRD GENOCIDE IS TAKING PLACE, THE ONE OF WOLVES, ELEPHANTS, LIONS AND BEARS, COUGARS AND RHINOS, AND VERY FEW ARE DOING SOMETHING TO FIGHT THIS INJUSTICE. OUR WILDLIFE CREATURES SITUATION IS SO HAIR-RAISING THAT UNLESS BRAVE POLITICIANS AND CELEBRITIES DO SOMETHING RIGHT AWAY TO STOP THIS BARBARISM THE ONLY WISH FOR US WILL BE TO ASK GOD TO PUT AN END TO SATAN´S TIME SINCE GOD´S ENEMY IS THE ONE GUIDING ALL THOSE PEOPLE´S TWISTED MINDS WHOSE ONLY WISH IS MONEY. YOU SEE ALL THOSE KILLERS HEARTS ARE SO NARROW AND FROZEN THAT THE ONLY PLACE LEFT THEY HAVE WITHIN THEM IS FOR MONEY, AND SINCE THEY DO NOT KNOW GOD THEY ARE CAPABLE OF DOING ANYTHING TO SATISFY THEIR GREED, WHICH IS SATAN´S MAIN GOAL. WE HAVE NEVER FELT SO SAD IN OUR LIVES AS WE ARE NOW AND ALL BECAUSE OF ALL THESE INHUMANE KILLINGS OF OUR MAMMALS. A SOCIETY THAT ALLOWS SUCH BRUTALITY IS A SICK SOCIETY. WHY? BECAUSE A HEALTHY SOCIETY WOULD DEMONSTRATE AGAINST THESE KILLINGS AND WOULD NOT VOTE THE POLITICAL PARTY INTRODUCING THOSE KILLING BILLS. THESE NUMBERS, BAD PRACTICES AND COMMENTS BELOW OUT OF A THOUSAND MORE NUMBERS SIMPLY SUCK AND DEPICT THE SICK SOCIETY WE LIVE IN:

1.ALMOST 96 ELEPHANTS ARE KILLED EVERYDAY IN AFRICA FOR THEIR IVORY.

2.MORE THAN 1,400 ALBERTA WOLVES AND 25,000 COYOTES HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE PAST 5 YEARS.

3.”WOLVES FETCH BETWEEN $75 AND $500 EACH IN ALBERTA, WHILE COYOTES CAN EARN A BOUNTY HUNTER $15 EACH. IT DEPENDS IN WHICH MUNICIPALITY THE BOUNTY PROGRAM IS BEING RUN, OR BY WHICH LANDOWNER” (LAKRITZ: STOP CRYING WOLF AND CAUSING WILDLIFE TO SUFFER. NOVEMBER 11, 2015).

4.OR-17, A TWO-YEAR-OLD FEMALE WOLF WAS SHOT IN 2014 BY A HUNTER IN IDAHO.

5.THE BELOVED WOLF 253, NAMED LIMPY, WAS SHOT IN MARCH 08, THE VERY DAY ESA PROTECTIONS WERE LIFTED FOR THE GRAY WOLF BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION (HOWLING FOR JUSTICE.BLOGGING FOR THE GRAY WOLF).

6.RHINOS´HORNS WERE HACKED OFF WITH MACHETES, INFLICTING MASSIVE FACIAL TRAUMA TO THE IMMOBILE BUT UNANESTHETIZED ANIMALS (VIDEO:VET DESCRIBES EMOTIONAL TOLL OF RESPONDING TO BRUTAL RHINO POACHING. MONGABAY. SOUTHAFRICA. WILDLIFE).

7.THE NUMBER OF GIRAFFES HAS BEEN CUT TO ALMOST HALF WITHIN THE LAST FEW DECADES.

8.MANY IVORY POACHERS SLAUGHTER WALRUSES IN ALASKA.

9.SIDDOWAY´S COMMENT: ”IT´S INSANE THAT I WOULD HAVE TO ASK FOR PERMISSION OVER MY OWN GROUND”.”IDAHO STATE SEN. JEFF SIDDOWAY, A REPUBLICAN FROM TERRETON WHO OWN THE 160-ACRE SHEEP PEN WHERE CARL BALL (SHEEP RANCHER) SHOT A WOLF FROM THE AIR ON JUNE 5, SAID BALL CALLED HIM THAT MORNING FROM A CELL PHONE WHILE CIRCLING ABOVE THE WOLVES WITH HIS GUN LOADED WITH NO. 4 SHOT. SIDDOWAY, IN TURN, CONTACTED BIG GAME MANAGER BRAD COMPTON OF THE FISH AND GAME DEPARTMENT AND CONTENDS HE WAS TOLD SHOOTING A WOLF FROM A POWERED PARACHUTE WAS ALLOWED UNDER A VALID AERIAL GUNNING PERMIT. “HE SAID, “GO AHEAD”, “ SIDDOWAY RECALLED. “WE DO IT AT OUR LEISURE FOR COYOTES. THIS WAS JUST THE FIRST TIME WE DID IT FOR A WOLF” IT WASN´T UNTIL LATER IN THE DAY, SIDDOWAY MAINTAINS, THAT ANOTHER STATE OFFICIAL INFORMED HIM THE PERMIT DIDN´T COVER AERIAL WOLF GUNNING. COMPTON DIDN´T IMMEDIATELY RETURN A PHONE CALL, BUT JIM UNSWORTH, FISH AND GAME´S DEPUTY DIRECTOR, SAID HIS AGENCY MOST CERTAINLY DIDN´T GIVE SIDDOWAY THE GREEN LIGHT TO SHOOT WOLVES FROM THE SKY”. (IDAHO MAN SHOOTS AT WOLF PACK…FROM THE SKY!!HOWLING FOR JUSTICE. OCTOBER 1, 2009).

10.”THE MICHIGAN DNR IS OFFERING A REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST AND CONVICTION OF THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR SHOOTING A GRAY WOLF IN THE UPPER PENINSULA. THE WOLF WAS SHOT SATURDAY ALONG MK-26, ABOUT A HALF-MILE SOUTH OF TWIN LAKES IN HOUGHTON COUNTY. THE DNR SAYS SOMEONE PARKED ALONG THE WEST SHOULDER OF M-26 AND SHOT THE WOLF FROM THEIR VEHICLE. THE WOLF WAS STANDING ON THE SNOWMOBILE TRAIL TO THE WEST OF M-26. GRAY WOLVES ARE A FEDERALLY ENDANGERED SPECIES AND CAN ONLY BE KILLED IN MICHIGAN IN THE DEFENSE OF HUMAN LIFE” (CANIS LUPUS 101: MICHIGAN DNR INVESTIGATING GRAY WOLF SHOT IN UPPER PENINSULA. NOV 24, 2015).

11.”ORGANIZATIONS LIKE PETA AND THE HSUS SERVE US AS A “HOME-BASE” TO ACTIVISTS LEADING THE SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST SEAWORLD. BUT NOBODY MENTIONS THE DESPICABLE PRACTICES OF PETA, AND THE HSUS AS THEY LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY ROB YOU OF YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY. WHEN AN ANIMAL IS IN TROUBLE IT WOULD PREFER YOU CALL SEAWORLD, NOT PETA, NOT HSUS. OTHERWISE IT WILL END UP DEAD (DESPERATION:ACTIVISTS ATTACK SEAWORLD RESCUE PROGRAMS. AWESOME OCEAN). “HUMANE WATCHERS HAVE A HISTORY OF ACTIVISM WHEN IT COMES TO ASKING COMPANIES NOT TO PARTNER WITH THE DECEPTIVE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES. READERS HAVE HELPED SCORE WINS BY GETTING CORPORATIONS SUCH AS YELLOWTAIL WINES AND PILOT TRAVEL CENTERS TO STOP SUPPORTING HSUS. NOW THAT DISCOVER HAS DUMPED HSUS, IT´S TIME FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY TO DO THE SAME” (HUMANEWATCH/DISCOVER DUMPS HSUS. APR 09, 2015).

12.”NEARLY 292 WOLVES IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES HAVE BEEN TRAPPED OR GUNNED DOWN THIS YEAR WITH OTHER WOLVES BEING KILLED BY STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

13.”THE WANTON SLAUGHTER OF WOLVES IN IDAHO BY FEDERAL GUNNERS WHO KILLED ENTIRE PACKS AT THE REQUEST OF IDAHO OFFICIALS SEEKING MORE ELK FOR HUNTERS IN THE CLEARWATER NATIONAL FOREST” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

14.”THE GOVERNMENT TRAPPER WHO WAS SECRETLY KILLING WOLVES IN THE FRANK CHURCH RIVER OF NO RETURN WILDERNESS TWO WINTERS AGO, BEFORE THE PUBLIC LEARNED OF AND HELPED US STOP THIS TRAVESTY” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

15.”IN 2014 MORE THAN 700 WOLVES WERE KILLED IN WYOMING AND THE GREAT LAKES” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

16.”A PRIVATE LANDOWNER SHOT AND KILLED A SIX-YEAR OLD FEMALE WOLF – ONE OF ONLY 10 BREEDING FEMALES LEFT IN THE WILD – IN JUNE 2015. IT IS LIKELY THAT THE WOLF HAD PUPPIES AT THE TIME OF HER DEATH. THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT ANY EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES EXISTED OR THAT ANY NON-LETHAL EFFORTS WERE ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE WOLF FROM THE SHOOTER´S PROPERTY” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

17.”VAQUITAS (WORLD´S SMALLEST PORPOISE SPECIES) ARE GOING EXTINCT BECAUSE THEY ARE BYCATCH – ACCIDENTAL VICTIMS – OF PERVASIVE ILLEGAL FISHING OPERATIONS IN THEIR HABITAT, IN THE NORTHERN GULF OF CALIFORNIA. THE PRIMARY THREAT TO VAQUITAS IS ILLEGAL FISHING FOR ANOTHER CRITICALLY ENDANGERED SPECIES, A FISH CALLED THE TOTOABA. THE SWIM BLADDERS OF THE TOTOABA ARE CONSIDERED A DELICACY IN CHINA, WHERE THESE FISH PARTS FETCH MORE MONEY PER OUNCE THAN GOLD (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

18.”ONLY ABOUT 2,000 GRIZZLY BEARS REMAIN IN THE LOWER 48, DOWN FROM AN HISTORIC POPULATION OF OVER 50,000 – THE PRIMARY FACTOR LIMITING GRIZZLY BEAR RECOVERY IS HUMAN – CAUSED MORTALITY. BEARS DIE WHEN THEY GET INTO CONFLICTS WITH PEOPLE” (JAMIE RAPPAPORT CLARK. PRESIDENT OF DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE).

“EARLIER IN JULY, WORD GOT OUT THAT AMERICAN´S NON-PROFIT MEDIA DARLING, THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATE (HSUS) HAD THEIR FINGERPRINTS ALL OVER THE MOVIE BLACKFISH, AND THEY´RE CURRENTLY LEADING THE SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST AQUARIUMS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH INTERESTS. THE DECEIVING GAME OF BAIT-AND-SWITCH HAS BEEN PLAYED FOR YEARS, WITH THE HSUS INVITING MISPLACED ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN THEMSELVES AND LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTERS (SOMETIMES CALLED HUMANE SOCIETIES). TO PUT THIS IN PERSPECTIVE, LET´S BREAK DOWN WHAT THIS DESPICABLE ORGANIZATION DID TO MOTIVATE YOU TO REACH FOR YOUR WALLET AND FORK OVER MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO A CORRUPT “CHARITY”. A FILM CREW WOULD GO TO A LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY PET SHELTER AND FILM SOME OF THE ABUSED ANIMALS. THOSE COMMERCIALS WOULD AIR ON NATIONAL TV LEADING UNSUSPECTING VIEWERS TO BELIEVE THAT THE HSUS HAD A HAND IN RESCUING THAT ANIMAL OR PROVIDING CARE AFTER THE RESCUE. HOWEVER, THE HSUS DIDN´T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH RESCUING THAT ANIMAL. THEY DIDN´T PROVIDE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE OR CARE FOR THAT ANIMAL AND THAT POOR ANIMAL WON´T SEE A PENNY OF YOUR DONATION. THEY SCANDALOUSLY ONLY GIVE 1% OF THEIR BUDGET TO LOCAL PET SHELTERS AND THE HSUS DOESN´T EVEN OPERATE ONE PET SHELTER OF ITS OWN. YES, YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY. EVEN THOUGH 85% OF THEIR FUNDRAISING PROPAGANDA FEATURES SHELTER ANIMALS, THEY DO NOT OPERATE A SINGLE LOCAL PET SHELTER (AWESOME OCEAN. BREAKING:HSUS LOSES CHARITY RATING). “HSUS´S COMMERCIALS SHOULD SHOW HSUS´S LAWYERS PAYING A RACKETEERING SETTLEMENT WITH THEIR TAILS TUCKED BETWEEN THEIR LEGS. HSUS AND ITS CO-DEFENDANTS, INCLUDING TWO HSUS EMPLOYEES, AGREED TO PAY $15.75 MILLION TO SETTLE A LONG-FOUGHT LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST THEM UNDER THE RACKETEER INFLUENCED AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS (RICO) ACT – A LAW THAT´S BEEN USED TO GO AFTER THE MOB. THE SUIT STEMS FROM LITIGATION THAT ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS, INCLUDING AN HSUS AFFILIATE, PURSUED AGAINST THE OWNER OF THE RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS, FELD ENTERTAINMENT. IN THAT CASE, ACTIVISTS CLAIMED THAT THE CIRCUS WAS UNLAWFULLY HARMING ELEPHANTS IN ITS CARE, AND THEIR KEY WITNESS WAS A FORMER FELD HANDLER. HOWEVER, AS THE CASE UNFOLDED OVER A DECADE, A PAYMENT SCHEME WAS DISCOVERED GOING FROM PLAINTIFFS AND THEIR LAWYERS TO THIS WITNESS. THE COURT EVENTUALLY THREW OUT THE LAWSUIT, FINDING THAT THE WITNESS WAS A “PAID PLAINTIFF” WHO WAS “NOT CREDIBLE”. THIS PAID WITNESS EVEN LIED TO THE COURT. FELD THEN FILED SUIT UNDER RICO, ALLEGING BRIBERY, ILLEGAL WITNESS PAYMENTS, AND OTHER TORTS. THE ASPCA SETTLED IN LATE 2012 FOR $9.3 MILLION, AND TODAY THE OTHER CO-DEFENDANTS HAVE PAID $15.75 MILLION. THE FBI CRACKED DOWN ON THE TERRORISTIC FRINGE OVER THE PAST TWO DECADES” (HSUS AND CO-DEFENDANTS PAY $15.75 MILLION I RACKETEERING LAWSUIT. HUMANEWATCH.ORG.MAY 15, 2014). “ASIDE FROM THE LAWSUIT, IT HAS COME TO LIGHT THAT THE HSUS DILIGENTLY MOVED MONEY TO SEVERAL FUNDS IN THE CAYMAN ISLANDS, CALLING THEM “INVESTMENTS”. WE´RE PRETTY SURE THAT MOVING $26 MILLION TO OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS IN THE CAYMAN ISLANDS IS CALLED STASHING MONEY. AND IT´S SHADY AS HELL. THE HSUS HAS ESSENTIALLY OPERATED UNDER THE SAME DONATION-GUISE AS PETA, WHERE A LARGE PORTION OF THEIR FUNDING COMES FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE CLUELESS ABOUT THEIR REAL AGENDA. THE TIME HAS COME FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND STOP ALLOWING THE HSUS TO MISUSE THEIR HARD-EARNED MONEY. IN FACT, PETA AND THE HSUS ARE DRIVING THE ANTI-CAPTIVITY MOVEMENT NOT FOR THE WELFARE OF ANIMALS, BUT TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES. THEY USE AND DECEIVE PEOPLE TO PROMOTE CORRUPT AGENDAS AND THE CAYMAN ISLAND ACCOUNTS CONFIRM JUST HOW ROTTEN THIS ORGANIZATION HAS BECOME. SO IF YOU CARE ABOUT PUPPIES AND KITTENS AS OPPOSED TO LOBBYISTS AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS SEND YOUR DONATIONS TO LOCAL PET SHELTERS INSTEAD OF THE HSUS. THE ANIMALS WILL THANK YOU FOR IT (AWESOME OCEAN. BREAKING: HSUS LOSES CHARITY RATING).

THE WAY OUR SOCIETY WORKS THESE DAYS IS AS FOLLOWS. THE MOMENT A BEEF PRODUCER MISUNDERSTANDS WHAT HE SEES BECAUSE SAY HE THINKS AN ANIMAL IS INTERFERING WITH HIS BEEF BUSINESS IS WHEN HE STARTS GOING CRAZY. AND WHAT DOES HE DO? HE STARTS CALLING SOME OTHER GREEDY GUYS TO PUT A BOUNTY ON THE POOR CREATURES, AND HE DOES NOT REALIZE HE CANNOT KILL EVERYTHING HE FINDS IN HIS WAY. WELL FOLKS, THIS IS ANOTHER OF THOSE CRITICAL TESTS WE ARE TO PASS AND WE WILL ONLY GET IT RIGHT, OPPOSING THESE KILLINGS AND STOPPING THEM. WHEN WE SAY FOLKS, WE ADDRESS EVERYONE, PARTICULARLY CELEBRITIES FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE TO COME FORWARD AND DO SOMETHING. AMERICAN FOOTBALL GAMES MEAN NOTHING, OSCARS AND GRAMMIES MEAN NOTHING COMPARED TO A WOLF LIFE OR ANY OF OUR OTHER LOVELY CREATURES´ LIVES. IF YOU DO NOTHING ABOUT IT YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY CREDIT TO ANY OF US, NO MATTER WHAT PORSCHE, MANSION, TROPHIES, GRAMMIES, OSCARS YOU HAVE OR WHAT YOU DO AFTER THIS GENOCIDE TAKES PLACE. WE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN FOR SPORT, MOVIES NOR FOR MUSIC – AND WE LOVE ALL THOSE – WHEN WE ARE TALKING ANIMALS´ AGONY. THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH! WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE SUGAR CODE CULTURE SINCE EVERYTHING SUCKS WHEN WE HEAR A COUNTRY DOES NOT STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR OUR MAMMALS´ RIGHTS, BECAUSE THEY LIVE WITH WHATEVER POLITICIANS DECIDE TO DO REGARDLESS THE BRUTALITY THEY MAKE USE OF.

WE NEED TO BROADEN OUR HEARTS AND LET GOD IN. GOD WANTS TO BE KING IN OUR KINGDOM. HOWEVER, NOT ANY BROADEN HEART CAN BE GOD´S KINGDOM BUT ONLY THOSE TRULY LOVING ONES. HOW DO WE GET OUR HEART TO BE TRULY LOVING? WELL, START FOCUSING ON THE RESPECT WE ALL SHOULD HAVE TOWARDS OUR NEIGHBORING MAMMALS. THE APPROAACH TO MAKE OUR HEART WORTHY OF GOD SHOULD BE USING HUMAN METHODS, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE THE USE OF GUARD DONKEYS IN ORDER TO KEEP PREDATORS AWAY FROM LIVESTOCK: “THEY BRAY, BARE THEIR TEETH, CHASE AND ATTEMPT TO KICK AND BITE DOGS AND COYOTES. SOME DONKEYS WILL ALSO CHASE DEER, BEARS, STRANGE LIVESTOCK, HUMANS AND OTHER INTRUDERS IN A SIMILAR FASHION. DONKEYS INVESTIGATE DISTURBANCES WITHIN THE HERD OR FLOCK AND WILL PURSUE PREDATORS OR INTRUDERS IF THEY DETECT THEM. VARIOUS BREEDS OF DOGS CAN ALSO SERVE AS LIVESTOCK GUARDS, INCLUDING GREAT PYRENEES AND ANATOLIAN SHEPHERDS. LLAMAS CAN DO THE SAME WORK. THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC REPORTED BACK IN 2003 ON A STUDY DONE BY WILLIAM FRANKLIN, AN IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR EMERITUS, WHICH FOUND THAT 50 PER CENT OF FARMERS “REPORTED A 100 PER CENT REDUCTION IN THEIR PREDATOR LOSSES AFTER EMPLOYING (LLAMAS) AS A GUARD. THE MAGAZINE MODERN FARMER LAST YEAR FEATURED AN ALBERTA SHEEP FARMER, LOUISE LIEBENBERG, WHO USES EIGHT SARPLANINAC DOGS – CANINES FROM KOSOVO THAT ARE DESCRIBED AS SO FOCUSED ON GUARDING LIVESTOCK THAT THEY ARE NOT AFFECTIONATE TOWARDS THEIR OWN HUMANS – TO SUCCESSFULLY GUARD HER SHEEP” (LAKRITZ: STOP CRYING WOLF AND CAUSING WILDLIFE TO SUFFER. NOVE 11, 2015).

ANIMALS ARE NOT FOR US TO HUNT BUT TO RESPECT THEM. ONCE WE LET THEM DO THEIR HUNTING AMONG THEMSELVES LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN DOING FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS THE TASK OF MANAGING DIVERSITY OF PERSPECTIVES IS NOT IN OUR AGENDA, SIMPLY BECAUSE WE, HUMAN BEINGS,  HAVE  STOPPED  INTERFERING  IN  OUR    NEIGHBOR       MAMMALS´ LIVES. LET US GET ON WITH OUR LIVES, RESPECTING THESE GOD´S CREATURES IF WE WANT PEACE AMONG ALL OF US.

THE WILDLIFE ORGANIZATIONS MENTIONED HERE DECEIVE AMERICANS AND THE WORLD WHEN THEY STATE THEY PUT A LOT OF MONEY INTO HABITAT WORK. IT IS THEN WHEN THEY TRY TO MAKE US BELIEVE WOLVES ARE A PROBLEM WHEN THE PROBLEM IS THEM, THE CORRUPT ONES IN THESE ORGANIZATIONS WHO WANT MONEY NO MATTER WHAT, HOW OR ANYTHING. SO WHEN WE HEAR THEM SAY THAT THEY ARE FIGHTING AGAINST WOLVES BECAUSE WOLVES DESTROY GAME HERDS OF THE WEST IT IS ALL A BIG BLOODY LIE. BEING SITTING ON THE COACH AND DOING NOTHING IS NOT WHAT THIS WORLD NEEDS, WHAT WOLVES, ELEPHANTS AND ALL OUR HELPLESS NEIGHBORS NEED. WE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IF EACH ONE OF US GETS UP AND MAKE CAMPAIGNS SUPPORTING THE INNOCENT HELPLESS ONES. THEREFORE, ALL AMERICANS AND EVERYONE SHOULD START TO APPEAL WOLF MANAGEMENT PLANS. THE WORD MANAGEMENT HAS BEEN PERVERSED, IS AN EUPHEMISM, THAT IS, A LITERARY TOOL USED SOMETIMES LIKE IN THIS CASE TO TRICK US ALL, LEADING US TO BELIEVE THEY CARE FOR WOLVES, WHEREAS THE ONLY THING THEY CARE FOR IS MONEY. IF EACH ONE OF US DO NOT WORK ON THIS LITIGATION NOTHING, WE MEAN NOTHING, NOT EVEN THE SUPER BALL WILL BE WORTH MENTIONED, SINCE WE WILL HAVE LOST OUR WOLVES, WHOSE ONLY FLAW IS THEY CANNOT SPEAK TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

“CANTERBURY RUNS TRACK´EM OUTFITTERS IN HOWARD, CO., HAS BEEN LEADING LION HUNTS FOR YEARS. HE SAYS THE BEST TIME TO HUNT COUGARS IS WHEN THERE´S FRESH SNOW, SO HUNTERS CAN TRACK THE ANIMALS USING DOGS. THE IDEA IS TO COAX A CAT INTO A TREE TO GET A GOOD SHOT” (COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO. HUNTERS AND CONSERVATIONISTS AT ODDS OVER A CHARISMATIC CAT BY ANDREA DUKAKIS. DEC 2, 2015). AS A STARTER WE WOULD TELL CANTERBURY THESE 4 THINGS :

1.HUNTING IS WRONG. WHY? BECAUSE MAMMALS AND OTHER ANIMALS ARE OUR NEIGHBORS WHO HAVE EMOTIONS. THEY CARE FOR US, COMMUNICATE WITH US AND MAKE US LAUGH. DON´T BLAME US IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SKILLS TO COMMUNICATE WITH OUR MAMMAL NEIGHBORS. DON´T MAKE US TAKE THE RAP IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO SEE TWO LOVELY AMAZING EYES IN EACH WILDLIFE CREATURE, FROM BIRDS, ELEPHANTS, BEARS, ETC. TO WOLVES. DON´T DISGUISE YOUR INSECURITY AND UNAWARENESS OF AN INNER LIFE, ONLY NOURISHED BY GOOD ACTS LIKE LETTING OTHERS LIVE, WITH A MALIGNANCY SUCH AS HUNTING TO GET A TROPHY, LIKE A CHILD NEEDS A TOY BECAUSE HE IS STILL A CHILD, UNAWARE OF THE WORLD OUTSIDE AND THE WORLD INSIDE EACH ONE OF US.

2.HUNTING COUGARS OR OTHER ANIMALS IN WINTER WHEN THERE IS FRESH SNOW IS WHAT COWARDS DO. COWARDS ALWAYS TAKE THE EASY WAY AND TAKE AIM AT THE MOST DEFENSELESS BEINGS. THE ONES CHARGING AT WEAK ONES WILL BE SEVERELY JUDGED BY OUR LORD THAT GLORIOUS DAY, YES, MY BROTHER.

3.THE IDEA IS NOT TO COAX A CAT OR ANY OTHER ANIMAL TO GET A GOOD SHOOT. THE IDEA IS TO COAX YOU TO UNDERSTAND WE ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW MORE BARBARISM AGAINST ANIMALS ANYMORE.

4.THE TIME HAS COME TO REVISE CRUEL PREHISTORIC PRACTICES SUCH AS HUNTING AMONG SOME OTHERS.

“BUT COUGAR HUNTING HAS ITS SHARE OF CRITICS WHO PREFER TO CALL IT “TROPHY HUNTING”—MEANING HUNTERS ONLY WANT TO MOUNT A LION ON A WALL TO SHOW IT OFF. CRITICS ALSO SAY THE MANNER IN WHICH LIONS ARE HUNTED IS CRUEL”. “MOUNTAIN LIONS ARE HUNTED IN SOME OF THE MOST BARBARIC WAYS USING PACKS OF HOUNDS AND LOTS OF TECHNOLOGY, “ SAID WENDY KEEFOVER, WHO´S WITH THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES AND IS BASED IN DENVER. SHE DOESN´T SEE ANY PRACTICAL REASON TO ALLOW HUNTERS TO KILL COUGARS”

“CANTERBURY DISAGREES: “I DON´T NECESSARILY ALWAYS JUST GO HUNT A LION FOR SPORT, “ HE SAID. “THERE´S TIMES THAT WE NEED TO HUNT ONE BECAUSE OF ITS PREDATION ON LIVESTOCK. YOU KNOW, MOUNTAIN LIONS IN MY OPINION ARE A GREAT ANIMAL TO EAT. THEY MAKE GREAT BREAKFAST SAUSAGE”. AS A FIRST COURSE WE MUST TELL CANTERBURY A COUPLE OF MORE THINGS:  WHEN YOU SAY THERE WERE TIMES “YOU NEED TO HUNT ONE BECAUSE OF ITS PREDATION ON LIVESTOCK” WE MUST TELL YOU THAT IS A BIG LIE. IT ONLY ACCOUNTS FOR LESS THAN 1% WHICH AS SUCH DOES NOT COUNT. ANOTHER THING IS THAT YOU MAY FEEL THE NEED FOR SUCH CRUELTY SINCE YOU ARE UNAWARE OF OTHER BEINGS´ RIGHTS TO LIVE. AS A SECOND AND FINAL COURSE – SINCE WE CANNOT DIGEST ANY MORE – WE WILL END UP TELLING CANTERBURY THIS: WHEN YOU SAY “MOUNTAIN LIONS IN YOUR OPINION ARE A GREAT ANIMAL TO EAT AND THAT THEY MAKE GREAT BREAKFAST SAUSAGE” WE MUST TELL YOU THAT WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANIMALS NOR WE CARE ABOUT YOUR BREAKFAST. WE RECOMMEND YOU GO TO A NUTRITIONIST AND WATCH AT LEAST ONE FILM ON ANIMALS LIKE JEAN-JACQUES ANNAUD´S THE LAST WOLF EVERYDAY SO THAT YOU CATCH OUR DRIFT, OK?

“WOLVES HAVE RETURNED TO WASHINGTON FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TEN YEARS. THE FEAR WOLF SPREAD CAN HAVE SURPRISING BENEFITS FOR THE LARGER ECOSYSTEM. AARON WIRSING STUDIES PREDATOR-PREYS RELATIONSHIP FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON. HE AND HIS UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT, JUSTIN BERINGER HAVE UNDERTAKEN A LONG-TERM STUDY TO LEARN HOW DEERS´ FEAR OF WOLVES CAN IMPACT PLANT COMMUNITIES IN THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS OF WASHINGTON. HISTORICALLY MORE THAN 400,OOO GRAY WOLVES MAY HAVE INHABITED THE WEST, BUT BY 1930 HUNTING AND HABITAT LOSS HAVE VIRTUALLY WIPED THEM OUT. FOR THE NEXT 80 YEARS OR SO THIS TOP PREDATOR, THE WOLF, WAS COMPLETELY ABSENT FROM THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE LANDSCAPE. BUT IN 1995 GRAY WOLVES WERE REINTRODUCED TO YELLOWSTONE AND NEARBY IDAHO. THEY HAVE SINCE SPREAD ACROSS THE WEST, AND THE POPULATION HAS GROWN TO MORE THAN 1600 INDIVIDUALS. THE CASCADES MOUNTAINS ARE ONE OF JUST A HANDFUL PLACES IN NORTH AMERICA CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING LARGE CARNIVORES, WOLVES, BEARS AND COUGARS. TEN DOCUMENTED WOLF PACKS NOW ROAM THESE WOODS BUT STILL IT IS JUST A SMALL FRACTION OF THEIR HISTORIC NUMBERS. AT PRESENT WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE BIG PREDATORS GLOBALLY ARE LARGELY MISSING AND THIS HAS IMPORTANT CONSEQUENCES FOR THE STRUCTURES OF NATURAL ECOSYSTEM. AARON WIRSING LEARNT THIS LESSON FIRST HAND WHILE STUDYING TIGER SHARKS IN THE WATERS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. HE LEARNT THAT WHEN MARINE MAMMALS CHANGED THIER FORGIN BEHAVIOR TO AVOID BEING EATEN BY THE SHARKS, IT ALLOWED SEA GRASS TO FLOURISH HEALTHY AND SEA GRASS BEDS MEANS INCREASE BIODIVERSIY, INCLUDING MORE FISH AND OTHER SEA CREATURES. “MY WORK WITH TIGER SHARKS GOT ME THINKING ABOUT WHETHER TOP TERRESTRIAL CARNIVORES, LIKE WOLVES, MAY HAVE SIMILAR EFFECTS ON VEGETATION”. TO FIND OUT HE TURNED TO THE FOREST OF EASTERN WASHINGTON. SINCE 2012 HE AND JUSTIN BERINGER HAVE CAPTURED MORE THAN 40 NEW DEERS AND OUTFITED THEM WITH CAMERAS, AND BY PEERING INTO DEERS´ DAILY LIFE AARON WIRSING HOPES TO GET AN UPCLOSE LOOK AT HOW WOLVES ALTER DEER BEHAVIOR. “WE ARE INSTRUMENTING THEM WITH A COLLAR THAT FEATURES A CAMERA THAT SITS IN THEIR CHEST AND RECORDS EVERYTHING THEY SEE. WE ACTUALLY HAVE A WINDOW INTO EXACTLY WHAT THE DEER IS DOING EVERY MOMENT, AND THAT PROVIDES THE KIND OF INSIDE  YOU COULDN´T GET ANY OTHER WAY. WHEN LIVING AMONG WOLVES PREY SPECIES LIKE DEER AND ELK BECOME MORE RECLUSIVE AND THAT CAN CAUSE A CHAIN REACTION WITH FAR REACHING IMPACTS. SCIENTISTS NOTICED THIS CONNECTION AFTER WOLVES WERE REINTRODUCED TO YELLOWSTONE IN 1995: SINCE THEIR RETURN ASPENS AND WILLOWS ARE HEALTHIER, GRASSES ARE TALLER, BEAVER, VISON AND SONGBIRD POPULATIONS HAVE INCREASED. BUT JUST BECAUSE WOLVES CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE IN ONE PLACE, DOES THAT MEAN THAT WILL HAPPEN EVERYWHERE THEY APPEAR? WIRING AND BERINGER THINK THAT THE SAME THINGS FROM DEER´S POINT OF VIEW WOULD BE KEY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION. WIRING: “WE ARE LEARNING THAT PROBABLY THE MAJORITY OF THE IMPACT PREDATORS HAVE ON PREYS SPECIES AND ECOSYSTEMS IS BY BEING AN AGENT OF INTIMIDATION OR A THREAT. BY MERELY BEING A THREAT PREDATORS CAN AFFECT ENTIRE PREY POPULATIONS INDUCING MANY DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS TO PLAY IT SAFE, AND WHEN THE ENTIRE PREY POPULATION PLAYS IT SAFE THAT IS AN ENTIRE DEER POPULATION THAT IS NOT EATING MANY PLANTS THAT CAN HAVE HUGE BENEFITS FOR THE PLANT COMMUNITY, AND WHEN PLANTS THRIVE THE ENTIRE ECOSYSTEM BECOMES MORE ROBUST. WHAT WE HAVE LEARNT AS SCIENTISTS OVER THE PAST DECADES IS THAT ECOSYSTEMS ARE MORE DIVERSE. WHEN YOU HAVE TOP PREDATORS IT´S ENTIRELY POSSIBLE TO SEE THE SAME THING IN WASHINGTON NOW THAT WOLVES ARE BACK ON THE LANDSCAPE. BUT AS WOLVES RECOLONIZE THE WEST THEY ARE SO IN FEAR FAR BEYOND THE FOREST MANY PEOPLE SEE THEM AS A THREAT TO LIVESTOCK OR PETS. IN STATES LIKE WYOMING, IDAHO AND MONTANA THEY HAVE RECENTLY ALLOWED WOLVES TO BE HUNTED. THE NUMBER ONE FACTOR TODAY DETERMINING WHETHER WOLF POPULATION IS GONNA BE OR NOT SUCCESSFUL IS WOLF TOLERANCE. TO SOME EXTENT THE NEGATIVE ATTITUDES HUMAN HAVE TOWARDS WOLVES ARE FUNCTION OF MISINFORMATION. IT´S NOT JUST WOLVES, LARGE PREDATORS AROUND THE WORLD HAVE BEEN VILLAINIZED WHEN IN FACT THEY CAN HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE WILDERNESS WE LOVE. THAT MAKES STUDIES LIKE THE ONE I´M CONDUCTING ON WOLVES AND DEER SPECIALLY IMPORTANT. THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE ROLES BIG PREDATORS PLAY THE BETTER THE ARGUMENT WE CAN MAKE FOR THE CASE WE ARE PROJECTING” ( THE ECOLOGY OF FEAR. YOUTUBE. MARCH 6, 2014).

MEXICAN GRAY WOLVES NEED TO EXPAND BEYOND THE BLUE RANGE RECOVERY AREA THAT IS CHOKING WITH CATTLE. IF THEY ARE TO RETURN TO UTAH, THOSE HIGHLY ENDANGERED WOLVES MUST REMAIN PROTECTED UNDER THE ESA OTHERWISE IN A FEW YEARS THEY WOULD BE FACING THE SAME BRUTALITY WOLVES ARE EXPERIENCING IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND GREAT LAKES. ONCE THEIR NUMBERS GROW “THE SPORTSMEN” WILL DECIDE ITS TIME TO BREAK OUT THE GUNS!” (HOWLING FOR JUSTICE. BLOGGING FOR THE GRAY WOLF. TOO BAD…). THE TERM SPORTSMEN SHOULD BE REVISED BECAUSE MOST OF US AGREE THAT KILLING SMART ANIMALS IS NOT A SPORT, RATHER A SENSELESS BRUTALITY WHICH SHOULD BE HEREBY PENALIZED. ONCE THE U.S. WAS COLONIZED NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS WERE IN THE STORM, NOW IT IS WOLVES TURN. NOTHING GOOD CAN COME OUT OF ALL THIS. IF WE DO NOT STOP THIS CRUELTY WE WILL BE ALL PAYING FOR OUR GREED, FOR OUR DISREGARD AND DETACHMENT FROM WHATEVER HAPPENS TO WOLVES. MANY PEOPLE ARE UNBEHAVING, DOING NOTHING TO STOP THIS MASSACRE. MANY PEOPLE SEEM TO FORGET OUR ANCESTORS´ LEGACY. WE ARE SO HOOKED ON OURSELVES, ON OUR EGOTRIP THAT WE CANNOT SEE ANYTHING BUT OUR BELLY BUTTON. IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND REALIZE GOD IS THE CENTER OF EACH ONE OF US AND THE CENTER OF LIFE AS A WHOLE. EACH ONE OF US IS JUST ONE OF GOD´S SERVANTS WHO SHOULD BE WILLING TO SERVE GOD AND HEREBY ALL OUR BROTHERS – THE GOOD ONES PARTICULARLY. WE DO NOT LIKE TWO-FACED PEOPLE. IF WE HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN WOLVES AND TOURISM WE WOULD AGREE WOLVES ARE HANDS DOWN WORTH OF ALL THE CARE WE CAN GIVE THEM AND MUCH MORE. WHY? BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY HISTORIC EXAMPLES WHICH DEPICT WOLVES AS BRAVE, SOCIAL, SMART AND GOOD CREATURES WHO SUFFER AND FEEL ANGUISH LIKE MOST OF US DO. THEREFORE, REINTRODUCING WOLVES TO UTAH OR TO ANY OTHER STATE´S ECOSYSTEM TO LATER ON – JUST IN THEIR EARLIEST STAGES – BRUTALLY KILL THEM IS TOTALLY WRONG. HOW CAN A COUNTRY LIKE THE U.S.A. ALLOW SUCH CRUELTY? WHAT IS THE VALUE OF BEING ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL WORLD COUNTRIES IF IT ALLOWS SUCH BARBARISM? IT IS ACTUALLY USELESS IF THE COUNTRY´S PEOPLE DO NOT VALUE THEIR GOD GIVEN TREASURES AND ATTACK THEM FOR VESTED INTERESTS WHICH ONLY HAVE TO DO WITH DIRTY MONEY.

LET US TALK TURKEY ONCE AND FOR ALL. MOST SCIENTISTS ARE AFRAID TO SAY WHAT THEY TRULY THINK AND FEEL ABOUT KILLING WOLVES BECAUSE OF FUTURE REPRIMANDS. SO WHEN WE HEAR SOMEONE SAY SOMETHING LIKE: ”WOLVES MEET THE LEGAL DEFINITION…” WE CANNOT HELP BUT RAISE OUR EYEBROWS AND WONDER WHO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE TO JUDGE OUR MAMMAL NEIGHBORS AND TAKE DECISIONS OVER THEIR LIVES. ALL THESE KILLINGS AGAINST GOD´S CREATURES ARE CALLED BRUTALITY ACTS, ALL OUT OF IGNORANCE OF GOD´S WILL, OF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG, OF EMPTINESS OF RESPECT, LOVE AND CARE FOR OTHERS, AND OUT OF GREED.

WE ALL WANT HEALTH, LOVE AND BE HAPPY. HOWEVER, AS WE IGNORE GOD WE ARE NOT PROTECTED. ON TOP OF THAT, AS PRIESTS ARE PRESSURED NOT TO TALK ABOUT SOME REALITIES WHICH ARE OUR EVERYDAY DISH WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT WE ARE LEFT IN THE MIDDLE OF A WORLD OF CONFUSION, FULL OF TEMPTATIONS, LIES AND LET DOWNS WHICH MAKES US SUFFER AND GIVES US NO CLUE OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN LIFE. HERE ARE SOME CLUES WHICH HOPEFULLY WILL HELP US WALK IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, THAT IS, GOD´S:

1.THE DEVIL IS EVERYWHERE MAKING US IGNORE GOD, FEEL ASHAMED OF GOD, OF SAYING WE BELIEVE IN HIM, OF FIGHTING FOR GOD´S VALUES. SADLY MOST PEOPLE FEEL ASHAMED OF SAYING THEY BELIEVE IN GOD, WHEN THE TRUTH IS THAT THEY SHOULD FEEL PROUD AND THANKFUL FOR IT.

2.THE DEVIL IS AN EXPERT AT WHATEVER IS AGAINST LOVE, SPIRIT, SOUL, THAT IS, AGAINST ALL THAT COUNTS IN LIFE SINCE IT IS WHAT IS WITHIN EACH ONE OF US WHAT MAKES US HAPPY, HELPS US THROUGH AND DEFINES WHO WE ARE. SATAN IS THE ONE WHOSE VOICE INSIDE US INCLINES US TO SEX WITHOUT LOVE, WHICH IS THE NUMBER ONE WORLD VICE. SO MANY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TODAY ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE SO OBSESSED WITH THEIR OWN GENITALS, WITH GIVING PLEASURE TO THEIR SEXUAL ORGAN THAT THEIR SPIRIT, SOUL AND HEART ARE AS NARROW AND FROZEN AS CAN BE. THERE IS NO WAY GOD HAS ACCESS THERE. AND WHAT HAPPENS IN ALL THOSE PEOPLE´S LIVES WITH NARROW, FROZEN HEARTS? WELL, YOU SEE, THEIR LIVES ARE MISERABLE, THEY ARE NOT HAPPY; THEY ARE NOT GENEROUS, THEY DO NOT LOVE ANYONE EXCEPT THEMSELVES. THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO LOVE. NOBODY TAUGHED THEM HOW. THESE PEOPLE THINK THE WORLD OWES THEM SOMETHING. THEY IGNORE WE ARE HERE TO GIVE THE WORLD OUR LOVE, OUR BEST, OUR LIFE IF NECESSARY. THOSE PEOPLE, WILL NOT DO MUCH GOOD TO SOCIETY UNLESS THEY START CHANGING. HOW CAN THEY CHANGE? THEY CAN START MAKING A CHANGE IN THEIR HEARTS BY HELPING OTHERS OUT OF GENEROSITY, OUT OF LOVE AND THAT WILL BROADEN AND WARM THEIR LONG FORGOTTEN HEARTS, AND THAT WILL SURELY START PAVING THE WAY FOR GOD TO HAVE ACCESS TO THEIR HEARTS. FROM THERE, PRAYING FROM THE HEART AND  FOLLOWING   GOD´S RULES WILL BE THE NEXT STEP TO TAKE.

LOVELY AS EACH MORNING SUNSHINE IS, ENJOYABLE AS GOOD FOOD AND GOOD MUSIC ARE AND YET NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME SINCE WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THE NIGHTMARE OUR WOLVES, ELEPHANTS AND OTHER ANIMALS ARE GOING THROUGH. SINCE THE CLOCK IS TICKING INTO OUR WOLVES´ LIVES WHAT WE WANT TO GET ACROSS HERE IS THAT MOST WORLD CITIZENS LOVE OUR WOLVES SO MUCH WE HAVE A HARD TIME WHEN WE HEAR OR READ HORRIFIC STORIES SUCH AS THOSE TAKING PLACE IN A SO-CALLED DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY. LET US HOPE LIERS BECOME TRAPPED IN THEIR OWN LIES AND FINALLY REALIZE THESE SYMPTONS – LIES AND GREED – ARE TYPICAL OF A SICK SOCIETY. DAVID HAYES, SECRETARY OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR, DEPICTED PERFECTLY THESE SYMPTOMS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, WHEN HE SAID THE FOLLOWING: ”PEOPLE ARE THE BIGGEST THREAT. THE ISSUE IS TRAFFICKING MORE THAN HUNTING.TRAFFICKING USES SPORT HUNTING AS A FRONT. IT IS A MASSACRE OF ELEPHANTS, LEOPARDS, LIONS…THERE IS NO SCRUTINY OF THESE ANIMALS AT ALL”. WILL FOWLDS, WILDLIFE COMMITTED VET IN THE EASTERN CAPE, IS ANOTHER GREAT PERSON WHO REALLY CARES FOR WILDLIFE CONSERVATION AND HIGHLIGHTS AGAIN THE SYMPTOMS WE ARE REFERING TO WHEN HE SAYS: “WHAT MECHANISM CAN DRIVE THOSE GUYS TO THAT DEGREE OF EXCESSIVE BRUTALITY REMOVING THAT AMOUNT OF FLESH TO GET THE HORN, TO HACK AWAY AN ANIMAL THAT IS STILL ALIVE, TO TRAUMATIZE RHINOS THAT WAY, AND THEN JUST LEAVE THEM TO DIE? POACHERS WALK AWAY WITH THEIR HORNS AND LET RHINOS DIE AND SUFFER SOMETIMES FOR 2 DAYS BEFORE THEY FINALLY DIE AFTER AGONIZING FOR SO LONG (YOUTUBE.WILL FOWLDS; EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF RHINO POACHING).

EVERYONE SHOULD FOLLOW THE POLISH EXAMPLE AS FOR THEIR WILLINGNESS AND APTITUDE TOWARDS WOLVES, SEEING THEM AS WHAT THEY ARE, OUR SMART BUDS WITH SOPHISTICATED COMMUNICATION SKILLS, AND WHOSE HOWLS ARE HARBINGERS OF GOOD STUFF. WE WANT WOLVES ALIVE AND CLOSE TO US. DEAD ONES AND WOLVES SKINS ARE NOT SOMETHING THAT WILL BRING US A GOOD FUTURE, RATHER THE OPPOSITE. ONLY ALIVE WOLVES WILL BRING US GOOD LUCK SINCE THEY ARE GOOD MAGICAL BEINGS: “WE ARE REALLY HAPPY”, SAID MAGDALENA KAMINSKA, SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE 150 SQ MILE KAMPINOS NATIONAL PARK, POLAND´S SECOND LARGEST. “THE FACT THAT WOLVES HAVE RETURNED TO OUR PARK, FROM WHICH THEY COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED IN THE 1960S, MEANS THAT NATURE IS IN GOOD HEALTH AND IS RENEWING ITSELF” (WOLVES RETURN TO POLAND MORE THAN 50 YEARS AFTER BEING WIPED OUT. THE GUARDIAN. 25 NOV 2015 ). BESIDES THE POLISH EXAMPLE ALL COUNTRIES SHOULD FOLLOW AUSTRALIA´S EXAMPLE PROTECTING ANIMALS.

GOD WANTS US TO SHOOT FOR THE BEST, AND THAT MEANS RESPECTING WOLVES AND THE OTHER ANIMALS, NOT SHOOTING THEM. WE HAVE GOT TO AIM AT LOVE AND EXCELLENCE, NOT MONEY OR SPEEDING. ALL THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES SPIN AROUND MONEY, SEX AND SPEED HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT. AND THE WORST IS THAT THE WORST IS YET TO COME TO THEIR LIVES. HOWEVER, WHEN THAT DREADFUL DAY COMES THEY WILL HAVE NO TIME FOR REGRETS. FROM THAT DAY ON THEIR LIVES WILL BE AN ETERNAL TORMENT WITH NO END EVER. FORTUNATELY, FOR THE FEW WHO CHOOSE LOVE AND EXCELLENCE THE BEST IS YET TO COME. PARADISE IS WAITING ROUND THE CORNER AND IT WILL GO ON FOREVER, SURROUNDED BY EVERYONE WE LOVE AND ALL THE ANIMALS WE LOVE AND HELP SO MUCH DURING OUR TIME HERE.

 THE POEM I HAVE JUST WRITTEN ON BEHALF OF WOLVES IS THIS ONE:

WOLVES TAKE US HIGH

WOLVES ARE GOD´S,

WOLVES ARE MINE,

WOLVES ARE GOOD,

WOLVES TAKE US HIGH.

 

THIS WORLD IS NOT GOD´S,

THIS WORLD IS NOT MINE,

THIS WORLD IS NOT WOLVES´,

THIS WORLD IS THE BAD GUYS´.

 

THERE IS NO LOVE,

THERE IS TOO MUCH PRIDE,

THERE ALL TO PROVE

THERE EVERYTHING´S GOT A PRICE.

 

I SEE PAIN AND BLOOD,

I SEE WOLVES CRY,

I OBJECT TO KILLING WOLVES,

I OPPOSE SUCH CRIMES.

 

WOLVES ARE GOD´S,

WOLVES ARE MINE,

WOLVES ARE GOOD,

WOLVES TAKE US HIGH.

 

GOD TAKES US TO PLACES WHERE WE FEEL SAFE. A WOLF WOULD NEVER LET US DOWN. MARCOS RODRIGUEZ PANTOJA (AMONG WOLVES), WHO WAS RAISED BY WOLVES IN THE SOUTH OF SPAIN BACKS UP WHAT WE HAVE JUST SAID. HE WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM HIS BELOVED WOLF AFTER BEING WITH HIM FOR SOME YEARS, FOR NO REASON EXCEPT PREJUDICE AND IGNORANCE. SOME DECADES AFTERWARDS MARCOS RODRIGUEZ WENT BACK TO THE PLACE WHERE HE USED TO REST TOGETHER WITH HIS WOLF, AND IT TOOK HIM JUST A SHORT WHILE TO WAIT FOR BEFORE HIS BELOVED WOLF WOULD APPEAR AGAIN AND SQUEEZE HIM WITH KISSES AND TRUE LOVE. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, THE LOVE MOST DO NOT REALLY KNOW ABOUT. THESE ARE THE AMAZING WORDS MARCOS RODRIGUEZ WANTED TO SHARE WITH ALL OF US“DURING ALL THIS TIME (DECADES) AWAY FROM MY WOLVES I HAVE NOT LEARNT ANYTHING FROM PEOPLE. WOLVES TAUGHT ME ALL THE IMPORTANT THINGS I KNOW”. I THANK YOU, MY DEAR MARCOS RODRIGUEZ, FOR YOUR TRUE WORDS. YOU ARE AS AWESOME AND BRAVE AS WOLVES ARE. GOD BLESS YOU!

NEVER IN OUR LIVES HAVE WE FELT SO MUCH EAGER FOR GOD TO MAKE A FAST COME BACK TO THIS GREEDY PLACE WE CALL WORLD. THIS WORLD IS IN REALLY BAD HEALTH AND NEEDS AN URGENT CURE. THE ONLY ONE ABLE TO CURE THIS CORRUPT WORLD IS JESUS CHRIST. NOW THAT CHRISTMAS IS AROUND THE CORNER AND THE ONLY GOAL OF THIS CELEBRATION SHOULD BE TO REJOICE AT THE REMEMBRANCE OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST THE LEAST WE COULD DO SHOULD BE TO PUT SOME WHITE OR YELLOW LIGHTS AROUND OUR JESUS CHRIST´S SACRED HEART STATUE IN SABINO ARANA ROUNDABOUT (BILBAO). IT IS ALL RIGHT TO DECORATE BILBAO STREETS WITH THE LOVELY BLUE LIGHTS. HOWEVER, LEAVING JESUS CHRIST´S SACRED HEART STATUE ASIDE PUTTING NOT EVEN ONE SINGLE WHITE LIGHT AROUND OUR LORD MAKES US RAISE OUR EYEBROWS AND THINK:  “ IF CHRISTMAS IS OUR LORD´S FEAST,  WHY   DON´T THEY WALK THE TALK? WHY CAN´T WE TASTE CHRISTMAS AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE?, CAN WE ALL STEP FORWARD AND REACH LOVE? CAN WE REACH OUT TO GOD? CAN WE REALIZE WE HAVE TO BE REVOLUTIONARY PURE TO REACH SOME PURITY AND LOVE, SOMETHING WORTH OUT OF SO MUCH NOT SO?, CAN WE ALL START BREAKING THE MOLD, LIKE NOAH DID, NOT FOLLOWING THE GREEDY, ENVIOUS, FALSE ONES?, CAN WE ALL MAKE A CHANGE NOW TO PREVENT FROM ANNOYING GOD TO THE POINT HUMANITY DID IN TIMES OF NOAH AND IN TIMES OF SODOMA AND GOMORRA? THESE PERVERSE BEHAVIORS TOWARDS WOLVES ARE PAVING THE WAY TO SOMETHING NOBODY WANTS. AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS GOD WILL SAY: YOU MADE YOUR BED, NOW LIE IN IT!

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, YOU KNOW THE U.S. AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW NEEDS TO BE RESHAPED. WE ARE ALL INVADERS. WOLVES ARE NOT. THEY WERE THE FIRST ONES INHABITING THE U.S. AND WE ASK YOU TO PUT NATURE WHICH IS LIFE, WHICH IS GOD´S VALUES BEFORE PARTY AND POLITICS AND START PRESSING CHARGES AGAINST BGF, SFW AND NRA. WOLVES RARELY ATTACK CATTLE. IT IS ALL A BIG LIE, AN EXCUSE TO GET TAXPAYERS MONEY, AND THEN EVEN GET MORE MONEY FOR THEIR SKINS ONCE THEY ARE KILLED. THE ONES WHO FEAR WOLVES ARE REALLY AFRAID OF THEIR FEARS INSIDE THEMSELVES, AND THEY PROJECT THOSE FEARS ON WOLVES, GIVING THEM A BAD NAME AS THEIR CANNON FODDER. IT IS ALL A PERVERSE CAMPAIGN AGAINST WOLVES WHO HAVE NO VOICE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THE GUTS TO TELL THEM OFF TO FINALLY STOP THIS UNBEARABLE MASSACRE RUN FOR GREEDY REASONS AND VANITY, BOASTING ABOUT THE NUMBERS OF HUNTS THEY GOT.

IN RON HOWARD´S LAST MOVIE IN THE HEART OF THE SEA WE NOTICE  WHALES FEEL, HAVE EMOTIONS, ARE SOCIABLE, DO NOT ATTACK ANYONE UNLESS YOU ATTACK THEM. WE LEARN TO RESPECT THESE MAJESTIC MAMMALS AND TO LOVE THEM. WE LEARN WE ARE NOT TO KILL THESE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES UNLESS WE WANT NATURE GOING AGAINST US. THIS MASTERPIECE HAS THIS AWESOME LINE SAID BY OWEN CHASE (CHRIS HEMSWORTH): “WHAT TERRIBLE THINGS HAVE WE DONE TO PISS GOD OFF SO MUCH?“. THIS IS EXACTLY THE POINT AT WHICH WE ARE RIGHT NOW, SINCE THESE WOLVES KILLINGS ARE REALLY PISSING GOD OFF. THERE IS A BREATHTAKING SCENE WHEN TOWARDS THE END OF THE MOVIE OWEN CHASE LOOKS AT A WHALE EYES AND POINTS A HARPOON AT HIM AND IN THE MIDST OF THIS MOMENT OF HESITATION HE HAD BETWEEN RESPECTING THE WHALE OR KILLING HIM OWEN FORTUNATELY DECIDES TO LET THE WHALE LIVE. BY THE END OF THE MOVIE OWEN HAD FINALLY LEARNT THE LESSON OUR SOCIETY STILL HAS TO LEARN.

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO LAND AND REALIZE THAT THE COOLEST THING TO DO TODAY IS NOT TO BE HOLLYWOOD´S MOST REPUTABLE STAR, OR BE FILTHY RICH?, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO OPEN OUR HEARTS SO THAT GOD COMES IN TO OPEN THE WINDOWS OF OUR HOUSES AND LET THE SUN COME IN, SO THAT WE CAN FINALLY UNDERSTAND THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY THING TO DO TODAY IS TO BE GOOD, SO GOOD THAT NOTHING, NOR ANYBODY CAN BOTHER US BECAUSE WE ARE SO FILLED WITH GOD´S SPIRIT THAT SO MUCH PEACE AND LOVE INSIDE US IS SUCH TREASURE FILTHY RICH ONES WOULD LOVE TO TASTE ONCE IN THEIR LIVES?. LIKE FREDDY MERCURY ONCE SAID: “THE SHOW MUST GO ON”, AND I SAY “I CAN´T WAIT FOR THE END, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!. AND NOW THAT WE ARE ALL IN A RAP MOOD LET US FINISH OFF WITH THESE RAP LINES: “YEAH, YEAH, GO AHEAD PRESIDENT, GO AHEAD PRESIDENT, YEAH, YEAH, THE U.S. DESERVES BEST, YEAH, YEAH, GO AHEAD PRESIDENT, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!

NO MORE HI-TECH FIXES

HAVEN´T YOU NOTICED LATELY THAT PEOPLE´S LOOKS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEY USED TO, EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE SPEND AN AWFUL LOT OF MONEY ON FOOD?, HOW OFTEN DO WE FIND OURSELVES SAYING TO SOMEONE “THIS STRAWBERRY DOESN´T TASTE LIKE STRAWBERRIES DO” OR “THIS TOMATO DOESN´T TASTE LIKE TOMATOES SHOULD”? CERTAINLY MORE OFTEN THAN WE WOULD LIKE TO. FOOD, IN GENERAL, DOES NOT TASTE LIKE IT USED TO, NOR IT MAKES US THAT GOOD AS IT USED TO. ACTUALLY, VERY OFTEN, IF WE LOOK OURSELVES IN THE MIRROR SOME HOURS AFTER EATING WHATEVER FOOD WE CHOOSE, WE WILL SEE WE ACTUALLY LOOK WORSE THAN BEFORE EATING IT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH FOOD TODAY? FOR SURE, OUR FOOD SAFETY SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE UPGRADED.

WE ALL REMEMBER THE NEWS BROADCASTED IN 2012, I BELIEVE, ABOUT A GROUP OF U.S. PEOPLE WHO DIED AFTER EATING A MEAL IN THE SAME RESTAURANT. UNDOUBTEDLY, ALL OF THEM CONSUMED CONTAMINATED FOOD. SAY THEY ALL ATE MELON AND ICEBERG LETTUCE, SAY THESE CANTALOUPES AND THE LETTUCE WERE CONTAMINATED FROM FILTHY WATER FROM FARM INDUSTRIES NEARBY, SAY THE WATER ON THE INDUSTRY FLOORS WAS DIRTY, SAY THEIR INDUSTRY EQUIPMENT WAS NOT CLEANED AFTER WORK FOR HYGIENE REASONS. SAY ALL THESE FACTS ARE ONLY A FEW OF THE REASONS WHY MULTINATIONAL MANAGERS AND WORLD LEADERS ARE TO BE BLAMED FOR ALL THE MANY OF PEOPLE´S HEALTH PROBLEMS. UNFORTUNATELY THESE FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS HAPPEN NOT ONLY IN THE U.S. BUT ALL OVER THE WORLD. THIS IS A SURE SIGN OF BAD FOOD SAFETY PRACTICES EVERYWHERE.

“CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) ESTIMATE THAT EACH YEAR ROUGHLY 1 IN 6 AMERICANS ( OR 48 MILLION PEOPLE) GET SICK, 128,000 ARE HOSPITALIZED, AND 3,000 DIE OF FOODBORNE DISEASES. THE 2001 ESTIMATES PROVIDE THE MOST ACCURATE PICTURE YET OF WHICH FOOODBORNE BACTERIA, VIRUSES, MICROBES ARE CAUSING THE MOST ILLNESSES IN THE U.S., AS WELL AS ESTIMATING THE NUMBER OF FOODBORNE ILLNESSES WITHOUT A KNOWN CAUSE” (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/ FOOD SAFETY/ CDC).

“THE 2013 FOODNET TREND DATA SHOWED THAT FOODBORNE INFECTIONS CONTINUE TO BE AN IMPORTANT PUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEM IN THE U.S. AND HIGHLIGHT THE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH PREVENTIVE MEASURES. DURING THE SUMMERS OF 2012 AND 2013 INFECTIONS WITH A PARTICULAR STRAIN OF V. PARAHAEMOLYTICUS SEROTYPE 04:K12 WERE ASSOCIATED WITH CONSUMING SHELLFISH FROM SEVERAL ATLANTIC COAST HARVEST AREAS”.

“ABOUT LISTERIA ITSELF IS COMMON IN THE ENVIRONMENT, IT RARELY CAUSES INFECTIONS IN PEOPLE (CALLED LISTERIOSIS). ABOUT 1,600 PEOPLE IN THE U.S. GET SICK FROM LISTERIA EACH YEAR. WHILE THE INFECTION IS RARE, IN 2011, A NEW SOURCE-CANTALOUPES CONTAMINATED WITH LISTERIA – CAUSED ONE OF THE DEADLIEST FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS IN THE U.S.”.

SALMONELLA INFECTION ACCOUNTS FOR $365 MILLION IN DIRECT MEDICAL COSTS EACH YEAR. RAW MEAT MAY CONTAIN BACTERIA, SUCH AS E. COLI, SALMONELLA AND LISTERIA, OR PARASITES”.

“EXAMPLES OF CONTAMINATION IN PROCESSING:

1. IF CONTAMINATED WATER OR ICE IS USED TO WASH, PACK OR CHILL FRUITS OR VEGETABLES, THE CONTAMINATION CAN SPREAD TO THOSE ITEMS.

2. PEANUT BUTTER CAN BECOME CONTAMINATED IF ROASTED PEANUTS ARE STORED IN UNCLEAN CONDITIONS OR COME IN CONTACT WITH CONTAMINATED RAW PEANUTS.

3. DURING THE SLAUGHTER PROCESS, PATHOGENS ON AN ANIMAL´S HIDE THAT COME FROM THE INTESTINES CAN GET INTO THE FINAL MEAT PRODUCT”.

“EXAMPLES OF CONTAMINATION IN DISTRIBUTION:

1. IF REFRIGERATED FOOD IS LEFT ON A LOADING DOCK FOR A LONG TIME IN WARM WEATHER, IT COULD REACH TEMPERATURES THAT ALLOW BACTERIA TO GROW.

2. FRESH PRODUCE CAN BE CONTAMINATED IF IT IS LOADED INTO A TRUCK THAT WAS NOT CLEANED AFTER TRANSPORTING ANIMALS OR ANIMAL PRODUCTS.

3. THE CONTENTS OF A GLASS JAR THAT BREAKS IN TRANSPORT CAN CONTAMINATE NEARBY FOODS”.

“SOMETIMES, BY THE TIME A FOOD CAUSES ILLNESS, IT HAS BEEN MISHANDLED IN SEVERAL WAYS ALONG THE FOOD PRODUCTION CHAIN. ONCE CONTAMINATION OCCURS, FURTHER MISHANDLING OF FOOD, SUCH AS UNDERCOOKING THE FOOD OR LEAVING IT OUT ON THE COUNTER AT UNSAFE TEMPERATURES, CAN MAKE AN OUTBREAK EASILY” (ABOUT FOOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“SOME PATHOGENS ARE FREQUENTLY TRANSMITTED BY FOOD CONTAMINATED BY INFECTED PERSONS. THE FAILURE OF FOOD-HANDLERS TO WASH HANDS IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS (SUCH AS AFTER USING THE TOILET, HANDLING RAW MEAT, CLEANING SPILLS, OR CARRYING GARBAGE), WEAR CLEAN GLOVES, OR USE CLEAN UTENSILS IS IRRESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOODBORNE TRANSMISSION OF THESE PATHOGENS. NON-FOODBORNE ROUTES OF TRANSMISSION, SUCH AS FROM ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER, ARE ALSO MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS IN THE SPREAD OF THESE PATHOGENS” (CDC FOOD SAFETY OFFICE).

“THE MOST COMMON CLINICAL PRESENTATION OF FOODBORNE DISEASE TAKES THE FORM OF GASTROINTESTINAL SYMPTOMS; HOWEVER, SUCH DISEASES CAN ALSO HAVE NEUROLOGICAL, GYNAECOLOGICAL, IMMUNOLOGICAL AND OTHER SYMPTOMS. MULTI-ORGAN FAILURE AND EVEN CANCER MAY RESULT FROM THE INGESTION OF CONTAMINATED FOODSTUFFS, THUS REPRESENTING A CONSIDERABLE BURDEN OF DISABILITY AS WELL AS MORTALITY” (WHO-FOODBORNE DISEASES).

“A HIGH PROPORTION OF FOODBORNE DISEASE IS CAUSED BY FOODS IMPROPERLY PREPARED OR HANDLED IN FOOD SERVICE ESTABLISHMENTS. PROPER FOOD HANDLING IS OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE FOR PEOPLE IN HIGH-RISK GROUPS (E.G. CHILDREN, OLDER PEOPLE, PREGNANT AND IMMUNOCOMPROMISED INDIVIDUALS) AND THEIR CARE-GIVERS” (WHO/ABOUT THE WHO DEPARTMENT FOOD SAFETY AND ZOONOSES).

“THE MOST ASSOCIATED FOODS WITH FOODBORNE ILLNESS ARE RAW FOODS OF ANIMAL ORIGIN, SHELLFISH, BULK, RAW MILK, POOLED RAW EGGS, GROUND BEEF OR NUTS. BESIDES ALL THESE, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES CONSUMED RAW ARE ALSO A PARTICULAR CONCERN. WASHING CAN DECREASE BUT NOT ELIMINATE CONTAMINATION, SO THE OUTBREAKS HAVE BEEN TRACED TO FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES THAT WERE PROCESSED UNDER LESS THAN SANITARY CONDITIONS. THESE OUTBREAKS SHOW THAT THE QUALITY OF THE WATER USED FOR WASHING AND CHILLING THE PRODUCE AFTER IT IS HARVESTED IS CRITICAL. USING WATER THAT IS NOT CLEAN CAN CONTAMINATE MANY BOXES OF PRODUCE. FRESH MANURE USED TO FERTILIZE VEGETABLES CAN ALSO CONTAMINATE THEM. ALFALFA SPROUTS AND OTHER RAW SPROUTS POSE A PARTICULAR CHALLENGE, AS THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY ARE SPROUTED ARE IDEAL FOR GROWING MICROBES AS WELL AS SPROUTS, AND BECAUSE THEY ARE EATEN WITHOUT FURTHER COOOKING. THAT MEANS THAT A FEW BACTERIA PRESENT ON THE SEEDS CAN GROW TO HIGH NUMBERS OF PATHOGENS ON THE SPROUTS. UNPASTEURIZED FRUIT JUICE CAN ALSO BE CONTAMINATED IF THERE ARE PATHOGENS IN OR ON THE FRUIT THAT IS USED TO MAKE IT”.

“SIMILARLY, FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES CAN BE CONTAMINATED IF THEY ARE WASHED OR IRRIGATED WITH WATER THAT IS CONTAMINATED WITH ANIMAL MANURE OR HUMAN SEWAGE” (CDC.CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION).

“ABOUT 20 MILLION PEOPLE GET SICK FROM NOROVIRUS EACH YEAR, MOST FROM CLOSE CONTACT WITH INFECTED PEOPLE OR BY EATING CONTAMINATED FOOD. NOROVIRUS IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DISEASE OUTBREAKS FROM CONTAMINATED FOOD IN THE U.S.. INFECTED FOOD WORKERS CAUSE ABOUT 70% OF REPORTED NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS FROM CONTAMINATED FOOD. NOROVIRUS OFTEN GETS ATTENTION FOR OUTBREAKS ON CRUISE SHIPS, BUT THOSE ACCOUNT FOR ONLY ABOUT 1% OF ALL REPORTED NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS. NOROVIRUS IS VERY CONTAGIOUS, AND OUTBREAKS CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE PEOPLE GATHER OR FOOD IS SERVED. PEOPLE WITH NOROVIRUS USUALLY VOMIT OR HAVE DIARRHEA. SOME MAY NEED TO BE HOSPITALIZED AND CAN EVEN DIE. INFECTED PEOPLE CAN SPREAD NOROVIRUS TO OTHERS THROUGH CLOSE CONTACT OR BY CONTAMINATING FOOD AND SURFACES. THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY CAN HELP PREVENT NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS BY:

1. MAKING SURE THAT FOOD SERVICE WORKERS PRACTICE PROPER HAND WASHING, AND AVOID TOUCHING READY-TO–EAT FOODS, SUCH AS RAW FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, WITH THEIR BARE HANDS BEFORE SERVING THEM.

2. CERTIFYING KITCHEN MANAGERS AND TRAINING FOOD SERVICE WORKERS IN FOOD SAFETY PRACTICES.

3. REQUIRING SICK FOOD WORKERS TO STAY HOME, AND CONSIDERING USE OF PAID SICK LEAVE AND ON-CALL STAFFING, TO SUPPORT COMPLIANCE” (CDC. CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION).

FOOD RADIATION IS A PROMISING NEW FOOD SAFETY TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN ELIMINATE DISEASE, – CAUSING GERMS FROM FOODS. LIKE PASTEURIZATION OF MILK, AND PRESSURE COOKING OF CANNED FOODS, TREATING FOOD WITH IONIZING RADIATION CAN KILL BACTERIA AND PARASITES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE CAUSE FOODBORNE DISEASE. SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO STERILIZE MEDICAL DEVICES SO THEY CAN BE USED IN SURGERY OR IMPLANTED WITHOUT THE RISK OF INFECTION. THE EFFECTS OF IRRADIATION ON THE FOOD, ON ANIMALS AND PEOPLE EATING IRRADIATED FOOD HAVE BEEN STUDIED EXTENSIVELY. THESE STUDIES SHOW CLEARLY THAT WHEN IRRADIATION IS USED AS APPROVED ON FOODS:

-DISEASE-CAUSING GERMS ARE REDUCED OR ELIMINATED.

-THE FOOD DOES NOT BECOME RADIOACTIVE.

-DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES DO NOT APPEAR IN THE FOODS.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF THE FOOD IS ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED.

IRRADIATION IS A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN PREVENT MANY FOODBORNE DISEASES (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“TREATING RAW MEAT AND POULTRY WITH IRRADIATION AT THE SLAUGHTER PLANT COULD ELIMINATE BACTERIA COMMONLY FOUND IN RAW MEAT AND RAW POULTRY, SUCH AS E. COLI 0157:H7, SALMONELLA, AND CAMPYLOBACTER. THESE ORGANISMS CURRENTLY CAUSE MILLIONS OF INFECTIONS AND THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALIZATIONS IN THE U.S. EVERY YEAR. RAW MEAT IRRADIATION COULD ALSO ELIMINATE TOXOPLASMA ORGANISMS, WHICH CAN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SEVERE EYE AND CONGENITAL INFECTIONS. IRRADIATING PREPARED READY-TO-EAT MEATS LIKE HOT DOGS AND DELI MEATS, COULD ELIMINATE THE RISK OF LISTERIA FROM SUCH FOODS. IRRADIATION COULD ALSO ELIMINATE BACTERIA LIKE SHIGELLA AND SALMONELLA FROM FRESH PRODUCE. THE POTENTIAL BENEFIT IS ALSO GREAT FOR THOSE DRY FOODS THAT MIGHT BE STORED FOR LONG TIMES AND TRANSPORTED OVER GREAT DISTANCES, SUCH AS SPICES AND GRAINS. ANIMAL FEEDS ARE OFTEN CONTAMINATED WITH BACTERIA LIKE SALMONELLA. IRRADIATION OF ANIMAL FEEDS COULD PREVENT THE SPREAD OF SALMONELLA AND OTHER PATHOGENS TO LIVESTOCK THROUGH FEEDS” .

“DIFFERENT IRRADIATION TECHNOLOGIES EXIST, THAT USE DIFFERENT KINDS OF RAYS. A VERY GOOD ONE IS ELECTRON BEAMS. ELECTRON BEAMS ARE STREAMS OF HIGH ENERGY ELECTRONS, PROPELLED OUT OF AN ELECTRON GUN. THIS ELECTRON GUN APPARATUS IS A LARGER VERSION OF THE DEVICE IN THE BACK OF A TV TUBE THAT PROPELS ELECTRONS INTO THE TV SCREEN AT THE FRONT OF THE TUBE, MAKING IT LIGHT UP. THIS ELECTRON BEAM GENERATOR CAN BE SIMPLY SWITCHED ON OR OFF. NO RADIACTIVITY IS INVOLVED. SOME SHIELDING IS NECESSARY TO PROTECT WORKERS FROM THE ELECTRON BEAM. THE ELECTRONS CAN PENETRATE FOOD ONLY TO A DEPTH OF THREE CENTIMETERS, OR A LITTLE OVER AN INCH, SO THE FOOD TO BE TREATED MUST BE NO THICKER THAN THAT TO BE TREATED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. TWO OPPOSING BEAMS CAN TREAT FOOD THAT IS TWICE AS THICK. E-BEAM MEDICAL STERILIZERS HAVE BEEN IN USE FOR AT LEAST FIFTEEN YEARS”.

“CURRENTLY, PASTEURIZATION IS APPLIED TO FOODS (LIKE MILK) THAT ALREADY MEET A DEFINED CLEANLINESS STANDARD, AND IS APPLIED AT A DOSE THAT GIVES A STANDARD DEFINED EFFECT. AS THE IRRADIATION OF FOOD BECOMES COMMERCIALIZED FOR VARIOUS FOODS, SIMILAR STANDARDIZATION WILL BE REQUIRED”.

“MANY COUNTRIES HAVE BEGUN TO IRRADIATE FOOD, INCLUDING FRANCE, THE NETHERLANDS, PORTUGAL, ISRAEL, THAILAND, RUSSIA, CHINA AND SOUTH AFRICA” (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF THE 1800S HAD A DRAMATIC EFFECT ON THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL LIFE AROUND THE GLOBE. THE ECONOMIES OF INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS SHIFTED FROM RURAL TO URBAN, FROM AGRICULTURAL TO MANUFACTURING. THANKS TO MANUFACTURING, ENERGY PRODUCTION, INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY FACTORIES TURNED LARGE QUANTITIES OF NEW PRODUCTS AT LOW PRICES. ALMOST OVERNIGHT CITIES SWELLED TO SUPPORT NEW INDUSTRIES. SOON PEOPLE WERE FLOCKING TO THE CITIES LOOKING FOR WORK AND A BETTER LIFE. FACTORY LIFE DID NOT LIVE UP TO ITS PROMISE. THE WORKERS HAD FEW RIGHTS, WAGES WERE LOW, HOURS WERE LONG AND WORKING CONDITIONS WERE UNSAFE. THESE HARSH CONDITIONS WERE COMMON. A GIANT WAVE, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC, CHANGED THE COURSE OF THE LATE 19TH CENTURY. BEFORE WRITING THE JUNGLE, NOVEL WRITTEN IN 1906, UPTON SINCLAIR (1878-1968), AMERICAN JOURNALIST, SPENT 7 WEEKS AROUND CHICAGO MEAT PACKING PLANTS. HE STUDIED DETAILS ABOUT THE WORK ITSELF, THE HOME LIVES OF WORKERS AND THE STRUCTURE OF THE BUSINESS. HE SAW DEAD ANIMALS, FILTH ALL OVER THE PLACE AND PRODUCTS GOING INTO THE SAUSAGE THAT SHOULDN´T HAVE BEEN THERE. HE ALSO SAW WORKERS GOT CHEWED UP THE SAME WAY THE FOOD DID. WORKERS IN THE PIGGERY HAD THEIR FINGERS EATEN BY ACID” (UPTON SINCLAIR´S THE JUNGLE SCHOOL TUBE).

UPTON SINCLAIR EXPOSED THESE UNSANITARY CONDITIONS IN THE MEAT PACKING INDUSTRY AND THIS LED TO AMERICA´S FIRST FEDERAL MEAT INSPECTION LAW. MR. SINCLAIR WROTE 47 BOOKS ATTACKING POWERFUL INDUSTRIES AND INSTITUTIONS” (HOW UPTON SINCLAIR AND EPIC SWEPT THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY 1934).

THE WAY WE EAT HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST 50 YEARS MORE THAN IN THE LAST 10,000 YEARS. THE INDUSTRY DOESN´T WANT US TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT WE ARE EATING BECAUSE IF WE KNEW WE MIGHT NOT WANT TO EAT IT. THE MEAT IS BEING PROCESSED BY HUGE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS THAT HAVE LITTLE TO DO WITH FARMERS AND RANCHERS. NOW OUR FOOD IS COMING FROM ENORMOUS ASSEMBLY LINES WHERE THE ANIMALS AND WORKERS ARE BEING ABUSED AND FOOD HAS BECOME FAR MORE DANGEROUS IN WAYS HIDDEN FROM US”.

“IN THE 1970S THE TOP FIVE BEEF PACKERS CONTROLLED ONLY ABOUT 25% OF THE MARKET. YOU SEE NOW THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING IN PORK. EVEN IF WE DON´T EAT AT A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT WE ARE EATING FOOD THAT IS BEING PRODUCED BY THIS SYSTEM. IF WE LOOK AT THE LABELS, YOU SEE FARMER THIS OR THAT, AND IT´S ONLY 3 OR 4 COMPANIES CONTROLLING THE MEAT. WE NEVER HAD FOOD COMPANIES THIS BIG AND THIS POWERFUL. TYSON IS THE BIGGEST MEAT PACKING COMPANY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. THE INDUSTRY CHANGED THE ENTIRE WAY THE CHICKENS ARE RAISED. BIRDS ARE NOW RAISED AND SLAUGHTERED IN HALF THE TIME THAT WERE 50 YEARS AGO. BUT NOW PEOPLE LIKE TO EAT WHITE MEAT SO THEY REDESIGNED THE CHICKEN TO HAVE LARGE BREASTS. THEY NOT ONLY CHANGED THE CHICKEN, THEY ALSO CHANGED THE FARMER. TODAY CHICKEN FARMERS NO LONGER CONTROL THEIR BIRDS. TODAY COMPANIES LIKE TYSON OWN THE BIRDS FROM THE DAY THEY ARE DROPPED OFF TO THE DAY THEY ARE SLAUGHTERED”.

TYSON DECLINED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM”.

“AFTER ASKING DOZENS OF FARMERS ONLY ONE, CAROLE MORISON (PERDUE GROWER) ALLOWED FILMING IN THE CHICKEN HOUSES. CAROLE MORISON SAID THIS: “ I UNDERSTAND WHY FARMERS DON´T WANNA TALK BECAUSE THE COMPANY CAN DO WHAT IT WANTS TO DO AS FAR AS PAY GOES ´CAUSE THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING. BUT IT HAS GOT TO THE POINT IT´S NOT RIGHT WHAT IS GOING ON AND I´VE JUST MADE UP MY MIND. SOMETHING HAS TO BE SAID. IT IS NASTY HERE, THERE IS DUST FLYING EVERYWHERE, THERE IS PISSING EVERYWHERE. THIS ISN´T FARMING, THIS IS JUST MASS PRODUCTION LIKE AN ASSEMBLY LINE IN A FACTORY. WHEN THEY ARE BORN FROM A CHICKEN THEN IN 7 WEEKS YOU´VE GOT A 5.5 POUND CHICKEN AND THEIR BONES AND THEIR INTERNAL ORGANS CAN´T KEEP UP WITH THEIR RAPID GROWTH. A LOT OF THESE CHICKENS HERE CAN TAKE A FEW STEPS AND THEN FLOP DOWN BECAUSE THEY CANNOT KEEP UP WITH ALL THEIR WEIGHT THEY ARE CARRYING. THERE IS ANTIBIOTICS THAT IS PUT IN THEIR FEED AND THAT PASSES THROUGH THE CHICKEN. THE BACTERIA BUILDS UP A RESISTANCE. I HAVE BECOME ALLERGIC TO ANTIBIOTICS AND CAN´T TAKE THEM. WHEN IT IS DARK AND CHICKENS ARE LAYING DOWN THEY ARE CAUGHT BY AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN AND LATINO UNDOCUMENTED. THEY DON´T HAVE ANY RIGHTS AND THEY AREN´T GONNA COMPLAIN. IT DOESN´T MATTER IF THE CHICKEN GETS SICK. THEY ALL WILL GO TO THE PLANT FOR PROCESSING. COMPANIES LIKE IT LIKE THIS. THE COMPANIES KEEP THE FARMERS UNDER THEIR THUMB BECAUSE OF THE DEBT THEY HAVE. TO BUILD ONE POULTRY HOUSE IS ANYWHERE NOW $280,000 TO $300,000. ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR INITIAL INVESTMENT IN A POULTRY HOUSE COMPANIES COME BACK WITH DEMANDS OF UPGRADING FOR NEW EQUIPMENT. THEY DON´T HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE OR YOU ARE THREATENED WITH LOSS OF CONTRACT. THAT IS HOW THEIR DEBT KEEPS BUILDING AND THAT´S HOW THEY KEEP THEM UNDER CONTROL, SPENDING MONEY GOING TO THE BANK. THEY HAVE NO SAYING IN THE BUSINESS. IT IS DEGRADING, IT´S LIKE NO HAVING A SAYING IN THE COMPANY” “.

PERDUE DECLINED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM. CAROLE´S CONTRACT WAS TERMINATED WHEN SHE REFUSED TO UPGRADE TO THE DARK, TUNNEL-VENTILATED HOUSES”.

A TYPICAL GROWER WITH 2 CHICKEN HOUSES  BORROWS OVER $500,000, AND EARNS ABOUT $18,000 A YEAR “.

“IN THE U.S. TODAY 30% OF OUR LAND IS PLANTED WITH CORN AND IS DRIVEN BY GOVERNMENT POLICY ALLOWING TO PRODUCE CORN BELOW THE COST OF PRODUCTION. WE ARE BEING PAID TO OVERPRODUCE AND IT IS CAUSED BY THESE LARGE MULTINATIONAL INTERESTS. THE REASON TO PROMOTE CORN IS THE TYSONS, THE CARDILLS, THE A.D.M.S AND THE SMITHFIELD. THEY HAVE AN INTEREST IN PURCHASING CORN BELOW THE COST OF PRODUCTION. THEY USE THAT INTEREST AND EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY HAVE TO GIVE US THE FARM BILLS WE NOW HAVE. THE FARM BILL WHICH SHOULD BE CALLED THE FOOD BILL CODIFIES THE RULES OF THE ENTIRE FOOD ECONOMY”.

COWS STAND ANKLE DEEP IN THEIR MANURE ALL DAY LONG SO IF ONE COW HAS IT THE OTHERS WILL GET IT. WHEN THEY GET TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE THEIR HIDES ARE KEPT WITH MANURE. IF 400 ANIMALS ARE SLAUGHTERED AN HOUR, HOW DO YOU KEEP THAT MANURE FROM GETTING INTO THE MEAT? NOW THAT THING THAT WASN´T IN THE WORLD IS IN THE FOOD SYSTEM”.

E.COLI, WHICH IS A VERY COMMON BACTERIA, EVOLVED AND A CERTAIN MUTATION, 1057:H7, APPEARED ON THE WORLD STAGE. FOR YEARS E.COLI IS NOT ONLY FOUND IN GROUND MEAT BUT ALSO IN SPINACH AND IN APPLE JUICE, AND IT´S BECAUSE OF THE RUNOFFS FROM OUR FACTORY FARMS “.

“DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION THE CHIEF OF STAFF, THE HEAD OF THE FBA WAS THE FORMER EXECUTIVE AT THE USDA, VICEPRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL FOOD PROCESSORS ASSOCIATION. THESE REGULATORY AGENCIES ARE BEING CONTROLLED BY THE SAME MEAT COMPANIES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SCRUTINIZING. THE INDUSTRY WANTS IT THAT WAY. IN 1972 THE FDA CONDUCTED APPROXIMATELY 50,000 FOOD SAFETY INSPECTIONS. IN 2006 THE FDA CONDUCTED ONLY 9,164 FOOD SAFETY INSPECTIONS”.

“AS MORE AND MORE TECHNOLOGY IS APPLIED TO THE PRODUCTION OF FOOD YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE SAFER BUT NOT MORE CONTAMINATED. PROCESSING PLANTS ARE BIGGER AND BIGGER AND THIS IS PERFECT FOR TAKING BAD PATHOGENS AND SPREADING THEM FAR AND WIDE”.

IN THE 1970S THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF SLAUGHTER HOUSES THAT PROCESSED THE MAJORITY OF BEEF THAT WAS SOLD IN THE U.S.. THE HAMBURGER OF TODAY HAS PIECES OF THOUSANDS OF DIFFERENT CATTLE GROUND UP IN A HAMBURGER PATTY. THE ODDS INCREASED EXPONENTIALLY IF ONE OF THOSE ANIMALS WAS CARRYING A DANGEROUS PATHOGEN. IT´S REMARKABLE HOW TOOTHLESS OUR REGULATORY AGENCIES ARE WHEN YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THEM AND THAT´S HOW THE INDUSTRY WANTS IT”.

“IN 2001 KEVIN, A LITTLE BOY, ENDED UP EATING 3 HAMBURGERS BEFORE HE DIED. HE HAD DIARRHEA, HEMORRHAGIC E.COLI AND HIS KIDNEY STARTED TO FAIL. HE RECEIVED DIALYSIS TREATMENT AND WASN´T ALLOWED TO DRINK WATER. HE BEGGED FOR WATER ALL THE TIME. IT WAS ALL HE WOULD TALK ABOUT. IN 12 DAYS HE WENT FROM BEING A HEALTHY CHILD TO DIE FROM EATING CONTAMINATED FOOD. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE THIS COULD HAPPEN FROM EATING HAMBURGERS. WE PUT FAITH IN OUR GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT US AND WE ARE NOT BEING PROTECTED AT THE MOST BASIC LEVEL. TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY ON AUGUST 1ST KEVIN WAS IN HOSPITAL AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL 16 DAYS AFTER HE DIED THAT WAS WHEN THEY RECALLED THE MEAT”.

“IN 1998, THE USDA IMPLEMENTED MICROBIAL TESTING FOR SALMONELLA AND E.COLI 0157:H7. THE IDEA WAS THAT IF A PLANT REPEATEDLY FAILED THOSE TESTS THE USDA WOULD SHUT DOWN THOSE PLANTS DOWN BECAUSE THEY HAD AND ONGOING CONTAMINATION PROBLEM. THE MEAT AND POULTRY ASSOCIATIONS TOOK THE USDA TO COURT. THE COURTS SAID THE USDA DIDN´T HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO SHUT DOWN THE PLANTS. THEY SAID THAT YOU COULD HAVE POULTRY OR MEAT WITH SALMONELLA AND THAT THE USDA COULDN´T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. KEVIN´S LAW GAVE BACK THE USDA THE POWER TO SHUT DOWN PLANTS THAT REPEATEDLY PRODUCED CONTAMINATED MEAT. LATELY THERE HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS HAVING RESULTED IN SIGNIFICANT LOSES” (FOOD INC. /WATCH DOCUMENTARY FREE ONLINE. FILMED BY ROBERT KENNER https://vimeo.com/29575879 ).

THIS WORLD SURELY NEEDS RIGHTEOUS HUMAN BEINGS LIKE FOR EXAMPLE JOEL SALATIN, POLYFACE FARMS OWNER IN VIRGINIA. JOEL SALATIN´S WHOLESOME VALUES IS WHAT THIS WORLD IN DISARRAY NEEDS. HERE ARE HIS PRECIOUS WORDS:

1.“EVERYTHING WE´VE DONE IN MODERN INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE IS FASTER, FATTER, BIGGER, CHEAPER. NOBODY IS THINKING ABOUT THE E.COLI TYPE 2, DIABETES AND THE ECOLOGICAL HEALTH OF THE WHOLE SYSTEM. WE ARE OUTSOURCING AUTONOMOUS FARMER DECISION MAKING TO CORPORATE BOARDROOMS IN BIG CITIES A THOUSAND MILES AWAY WHERE THEY MAKE DECISIONS AND DON´T LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE DECISIONS. HERE, IN MY POLYFACE FARMS EVERYTHING IS GRASS BASED. THEY DON´T FEED NEITHER DEAD ANIMALS, CORN, CHICKEN MANURE NOR DEAD CHICKENS. THEY ARE HERBIVORES AND SO THEY EAT GRASS, FORAGE, HERBS, CLOVER. IF THEY WERE EATING CORN YOU WOULD HAVE TO HARVEST, TRANSPORT THE CORN AND TAKE ALL THAT MANURE SOMEWHERE. HERE, IN MY FARMS, THERE´S THE WHOLE THING. THE COW IS FERTILIZING, MOWING; WE DO NOT HAVE TO MOW, HARVEST NOR SPREAD ANY MANURE. IT´S ALL IN REAL TIME”.

 “THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD SYSTEM GRADUALLY BECAME SO NOISY, SMELLY, NOT A FRIENDLY PLACE THAT THE PEOPLE WHO OPERATE THOSE DON´T WANT US TO SEE IT, BECAUSE WE WOULD SEE THE UGLY TRUTH. THE MOMENT WHEN THAT OCCURED WE LOST ALL THE INTEGRITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN THE FOOD SYSTEM”.

 “ACCORDING TO THE USDA THEY TRIED TO CLOSE JOEL SALATIN´S FARMS DOWN BECAUSE THEY SAID WORKING IN THE OPEN-AIR WAS UNSANITARY. 

JOEL SALATIN: “ WE HAD THEM TESTING US ON MICROBILOGY AT A LOCAL LAB. OURS AVERAGED 133 BACTERIA CFU AND THE ONES FROM THE STORE AVERAGED 3,600 BACTERIA. ON TOP OF THAT THOSE HAD SEEN 40 CHLORINE BATHS, WHEREAS OURS HADN´T SEEN ANY CHLORINE. THESE ARE ALL THE INEFFICIENCIES OF THE INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM. IT IS AMAZING HOW PEOPLE COMPLAIN WHEN PAYING $3 A DOZEN EGGS AND THEY DO NOT COMPLAIN WHEN THEY PAY 0.75 CENTS FOR A SODA. I AM STRUCK HOW SUCCESSFUL WE´VE BEEN AT HITTING AT THE WRONG TARGET. IN CATTLE WE´VE BECOME A CULTURE OF TECHNICIANS. WE´VE LEARNT HOW TO PLANT, FERTILIZE AND HARVEST CORN USING GLOBAL POSITION SATELITE TECHNOLOGY AND NOBODY SITS BACK ASKING: SHOULD WE BE FEEDING COWS CORN? WE´RE INTO THE HOW OF IT. NOBODY IS ASKING WHY. A CULTURE THAT USES A PIG AS A PILE OF PROTOPLASM INANIMATE STRUCTURE TO BE MANIPULATED BY WHATEVER CREATIVE DESIGN THAT HUMANS CAN EMBOSS ON THAT ANIMAL WILL PROBABLE VIEW INDIVIDUALS WITH THE SAME TYPE OF DISDAIN, DISRESPECT AND CONTROLLING-TYPE MENTALITY” “.

“THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD SYSTEM IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR GREATER EFFICIENCY BUT EACH NEW STEP IN EFFICIENCY LEADS TO PROBLEMS. WHEN THE INDUSTRY HAS A SYSTEMATIC PROBLEM LIKE CONTAMINATED FOOD, INSTEAD OF GIVING GRASS TO ANIMALS FOR 5 DAYS SO THAT THEY WOULD SHED 80% OF E.COLI IN THEIR GUT, THEIR APPROACH IS HI-TECH FIXES THAT ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO SURVIVE. WE HAVE SCREWED OUR FOOD SYSTEM TO THE BAD CALORIES AND IT´S NOT AN ACCIDENT. CANDY, CHIPS, SODAS ARE CHEAPER THAN A HEAD OF BROCCOLI. THE REASON WHY THOSE CALORIES ARE CHEAPER IS BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE ONES WE ARE SUBSIDIZING. THIS IS TIED TO THE TYPE OF AGRICULTURE WE ARE PRACTISING AND THE FARM POLICIES WE HAVE. ALL THOSE CALORIES COME FROM THE COMMODITY CROPS: CORN, SOY BEANS AND WHEAT. BY MAKING THOSE CALORIES REALLY CHEAP THAT´S ONE OF THE REASONS THE BIGGEST PREDICTION OF OBESITY IS INCOME LEVEL. THE INDUSTRY BLAMES OBESITY ON A CRISIS OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY”.

SMITHFIELD HOG PROCESSING PLANT IN TAR HEEL, A SMALL TOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY ECONOMICALLY DEPRESSED AREA IN NORTH CAROLINA, HAS THE LARGEST SLAUGHTERED HOUSE IN THE WORLD. SMITHFIELD HAS MASTERED THE ART OF CHOOSING A WORK FORCE THEY CAN EXPLODE: THE POOR WHITES AND THE POOR BLACKS FROM NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA. HERE ARE THE WORDS OF SOME OF SMITHFIELD WORKERS:

“THEY HAVE THE SAME MENTALITY TOWARDS THE HOG AND WORKERS, THEY DON´T CARE ABOUT THE LONGEVITY OF THE WORKERS NOR OF THE HOGS. WORKERS GET INFECTIONS IN THEIR FINGERNAILS AND THE FINGERNAILS SEPARATE FROM THEIR FINGERS. YOU COME WITH FECES, BLOOD, URINE. IT´S EASY TO GET HURT DOWN THERE. THEY ARE TREATED AS HUMAN MACHINES”. SMITHFIELD KNOWS THESE PEOPLE CAN´T AFFORD TO GET OUT OF THERE AND THAT´S WHAT THEY HOLD OVER THEM”.

“A 100 YEARS AGO WHEN UPTON SINCLAIR WROTE THE JUNGLE THERE WAS A BEEF TRUST THAT BUILT ENORMOUS KIND OF POWER. INMIGRANTS FROM EASTERN EUROPE WERE BEING ABUSED IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS. THERE WERE HORRIBLE DISFIGURING INJURIES AND EVEN DEATHS. THINGS SLOWLY GOT BETTER. TEDDY ROOSEVELT TOOK ON THE BEEF TRUST. LABOR UNIONS SLOWLY ORGANIZED MEAT PACKING WORKERS AND TURNED IT INTO ONE OF THE BEST INDUSTRIAL JOBS IN THE U.S. BY THE 1950S TO BE A MEAT PACKING WORKER WAS LIKE BEING AN AUTO WORKER. IT WAS GOOD WAGES, GOOD BENEFITS AND GOOD PENSION. AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED? THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES GOT BIGGER IN ORDER TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE FAST FOOD PACKING COMPANIES INDUSTRY. SOME OF THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES LIKE IBP BORROWED THE SAME SORT OF LABOR PRACTICES FROM THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY CUTTING WAGES, SPEEDING UP PRODUCTION, MAKING SURE THERE WERE NO UNIONS AND HAVING THE SAME WORKER TO DO THE SAME JOB TIME AND TIME AGAIN. MEAT PACKING IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS JOBS IN THE U.S..

THE MEAT PACKING COMPANY RECRUTED ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN MEXICO. MANY OF THEM WERE CORN FARMERS IN MEXICO.NAFTA LED TO A FLOODING OF THE MEXICAN MARKET WITH CHEAP AMERICAN CORN AND THIS PUT MORE THAN A MILLION AND A HALF MEXICAN CORN FARMERS OUT OF WORK. THEY COULDN´T COMPETE WITH THE CHEAP CORN COMPANIES FROM AMERICAN IBP, NATIONAL BEEF AND MONFORT. FOR YEARS THE GOVERNMENT TURNED A BLIND EYE ON IMMIGRANTS TO THE RECRUITMENT OF THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES, BUT NOW WHEN THERE IS AN ANTI-IMMIGRANT MOVEMENT THE GOVERNMENT IS CRACKING DOWN ON THE WORKERS, NOT ON THE COMPANIES”.

THESE ARE THE WORDS FROM A UNION ORGANIZER, EDUARDO PEÑA :

IMMIGRATION AGENTS ARE ARRESTING SMITHFIELD WORKERS AND THIS IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN SMITHFIELD AND IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES. THEY GET RID OF 15 WORKERS PER DAY AND THAT WAY IT DOESN´T AFFECT THE PRODUCTION LINE. NOBODY IS ARRESTING THE SMITHFIELD MANAGERS, JUST WORKERS WHO WERE PRODUCING FOR THIS COMPANY AND WORKING HARD FOR THIS COMPANY”.

“WE WANT TO PAY THE CHEAPEST PRICE FOR OUR FOOD AND THAT COMES OUT AT PRICE. THESE WORKERS HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 10-15 YEARS PROCESSING YOUR HAM AND BACON AND NOW THEY ARE BEING PICKED UP LIKE CRIMINALS, AND THESE COMPANIES ARE MAKING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS”.

“SMITHFIELD REFUSED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM”.

JOEL SALATIN: “ IS CHEAPNESS EVERYTHING THAT THERE IS?, WHO WANTS TO BUY THE CHEAPEST CAR?.WE ARE GOING TO SUBSIDIZE THE FOOD SYSTEM TO CREATE THE MYSTIQUE OF CHEAP FOOD WHEN ACTUALLY IT´S VERY EXPENSIVE FOOD, WHEN YOU ADD UP THE ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS, THE SOCIETAL COSTS AND THE HEALTH COSTS. THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD IS NOT HONEST FOOD: IT IS NOT PRICED HONESTLY, IT´S NOT PRODUCED HONESTLY, IT´S NOT PROCESSED HONESTLY. THERE IS NOTHING HONEST ABOUT THAT FOOD. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO SCALE UP OR GROW BIGGER. MY DESIRE IS TO PRODUCE THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD AND HEAL. AND IF IN DOING SO MORE PEOPLE COME TO OUR CORNER AND WANT STUFF HEAVEN HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO MEET THE NEED WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE INTEGRITY.  THAT´S WHERE I AM”.

TROY ROUSH, AMERICAN CORN GROWERS ASSOCIATION VICE PRESIDENT: 1. “ TEN THOUSAND YEARS AGO FARMERS STARTED SAVING THEIR BEST SEEDS AND PLANTING THEM AGAIN ON THE FOLLOWING YEAR. THAT´S HOW SEEDS AND CORN WERE DEVELOPED FROM USELESS GRASS TO THE EXTREMELY PRODUCTIVE PLANT THAT IS TODAY”.

THE IDEA THAT ANY CORPORATION COULD OWN A FOOD CROP WAS A NEW IDEA, AND IT WASN´T UNTIL THE 80S THE SUPREME COURT SAID YOU COULD PATENT LIFE AND THAT OPENED THE FLOOD GATES TO PATENT THE MOST VALUABLE PARTS OF LIFE, THAT IS, THE CROPS ON WHICH WE DEPEND”.

TROY ROUSH : 2. “MONSANTO WAS A CHEMICAL COMPANY. THEY PRODUCED DDT, THE ORANGE AGENT USED IN VIETNAM, AND THEN THEY DEVELOPED A PRODUCT CALLED ROUNDUP. WE STARTED HEARING RUMBLINGS OF GENETICAL ENGINEERING OF SOY BEANS THAT COULD RESIST THE APPLICATION OF ROUNDUP. WHEN THE ROUNDUP SPREAD STARTED IT KILLED EVERY WEED UP THERE, EXCEPT FOR THE ROUNDUP-READY SOY BEANS”.

“IN 1996 WHEN MONSANTO BEGAN SELLING ROUNDUP-READY SOY BEANS ONLY 2% OF SOY BEANS IN THE U.S. CONTAINED THEIR PATENTED GENE. BY 2008 OVER 90% OF SOY BEANS IN THE U.S. CONTAINED MONSANTO´S PATENTED GENE”.

TROY ROUSH: 3. “ I CAN REMEMBER WHEN THE FIRST PROHIBITION AGAINST SAVING SOY BEANS CAME IN TO BE. MOST FARMERS WERE DISGUSTED WITH THE WHOLE CONCEPT. IT´S BEEN INTERESTING OVER THE COURSE OF 11 YEARS TO WATCH WHAT IS GONE FROM UTTER CONTENT FOR THE NOTION WE CAN SAVE OUR OWN SEEDS TO ACCEPTANCE. THERE IS ONE COMPANY IN THIS, MONSANTO.MONSANTO HAS A TEAM OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS THAT RULE THE COUNTRY. THEY HAVE AN 1800 HOTLINE THAT TAKES CALLS ON. IF THEY GET A CALL AND SOMEONE ALLEGES THAT SOMEBODY SAVES SEEDS THEY WILL SEND AN INVESTIGATOR OUT THERE AND LOOK INTO THE MATTER. YOU SAVE YOUR OWN SEEDS, YOUR ARE GONNA GET A CALL FROM MONSANTO”.

MONSANTO HAS A STAFF OF 75 DEVOTED TO INVESTIGATING AND PROSECUTING FARMERS. ANYONE CAUGHT SAVING SEEDS CAN BE INVESTIGATED FOR PATENT INFRINGEMENT”.

DAVID RUNYON,FARMER,TALKS ABOUT MOE PARR,SEED CLEANER:MOE´S MACHINE CLEANS SEEDS OF DEBRIS SO THAT THEY CAN BE SAVED AND PLANTED THE FOLLOWING YEAR. IT´S AN INGENIOUS DEVICE DESIGNED BACK IN THE 1800 AND MONSANTO IS GONNA CLOSE THEM ALL. IN THE STATE OF INDIANA THERE ARE ABOUT 6 SEED CLEANERS LEFT. EVERY COUNTY USED TO HAVE 3 SEED CLEANERS. THERE IS NOBODY LEFT IN THE BUSINESS. THEY´VE BEEN ALL PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. WHEN MONSANTO´S SOY BEANS FIRST CAME O THE MARKET I JUST NEVER SWITCHED OVER. I WAS GETTING PRETTY GOOD DEALS WITH CONVENTIONAL SOY BEANS I HAD BEEN USING, SO I THOUGHT, WELL, I´LL JUST STAY WHERE I AM AT”.

DAVID RUNYON DOESN´T PLANT MONSANTO´S CROPS BUT HIS FIELDS HAVE BEEEN CONTAMINATED BY GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS (GMOS):  “ MY NEIGHBOURS´SEEDS ARE GMOS. IF THE POLLEN MOVES IN, IF THE SEEDS MOVE ON, I AM STILL HELD ACCOUNTED”.

“IF MONSANTO FINDS CONTAMINATION THE FARMER MUST PROVE HE DID NOT VIOLATE MONSANTO´S PATENTS. WHEN YOU GENETICALLY MODIFY A CROP YOU OWN IT. YOU NEVER HAD THIS IN AGRIGULTURE. MONSANTO IS VERY MUCH LIKE MICROSOFT. THE SAME WAY MICROSOFT OWNS THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY BEHIND MOST U.S. COMPUTERS THEY GET OUT THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY BEHIND MOST OF THE FOOD MARKET”.

TROY ROUSH: 4. “ THE WAY OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM WORKS, HOW CAN A FARMER DEFEND HIMSELF? A MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION LIKE MONSANTO WHOSE CONTROL IS SO DOMINANT”.

“THEY ARE GAINING CONTROL OF FOOD. THEY CONTROL IT FROM SEED TO THE SUPERMARKET”.

“THERE HAS BEEN THE REVOLVING DOOR BETWEEN MONSANTO´S CORPORATE OFFICES AND THE VARIOUS REGULATORY JUDICIAL BODY MODELS THAT HAVE MADE THE DECISIONS.

JUDGE CLARENCE THOMAS WAS MONSANTO´S ATTORNEY AND THAT WOULDN´T BE SUCH A BIG DEAL IF IT WEREN´T FOR ONE COURT CASE THAT REALLY DECIDED THIS WHOLE SAVING SEED CASE. JUDGE CLARENCE THOMAS WROTE THE MAJORITY OPINION THAT ALLOWED THESE COMPANIES TO PREVENT THESE FARMERS FROM SAVING THEIR OWN SEEDS. MONSANTO HAD CLOSE TIES TO THE BUSH AND CLINTON ADMINISTRATIONS AND THIS WAS WHY WE HAVEN´T HAD MUCH POLITICAL DEBATE OVER THIS RADICAL CHANGE TO OUR FOOD SYSTEM. IN THE LAST 25 YEARS OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DOMINATED BY THE INDUSTRIES IT WAS MEANT TO BE REGULATING. THE CHALLENGE IS THAT AS SOON AS THERE ARE PEOPLE WITH EXPERTISE IN THE INDUSTRY THEY MAY TURN OUT TO BE REALLY GOOD REGULATORS. IT IS ABOUT WHAT INTEREST THEY ARE INTERESTED TO REPRESENT. IT IS ABOUT CENTRALIZED POWER BEING USED AGAINST FARMERS, WORKERS AND CONSUMERS, DELIBERATELY KEPT IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT THEY EAT, WHERE IT COMES FROM AND WHAT IS DOING TO THEIR BODIES”.

“THE SB-63 IS A CONSUMER RIGHT-TO-KNOW MEASURE. IT REQUIRES THAT ALL FOODS THAT ARE CLONED MUST BE LABELED AS CLONED FOOD. THESE CLONED ANIMALS ARE A FUNDAMENTALLY NEW THING BUT I FIND INCREDIBLE THAT THE FDA NOT ONLY WANTS TO ALLOW THE SALE OF MEAT OF CLONED ANIMALS BUT ALSO WANTS TO ALLOW THE SALE OF THIS MEAT WITHOUT LABELING. THE SB-63 PASSED THE STATE LEGISLATURE BUT GOVERNOR SCHWARZENEGGER VETOED IT. AND NOW 78% OF PROCESSED FOOD IN SUPEMARKETS HAS GENETICALLY MODIFIED INGREDIENTS”.

“DOWNER COWS, TOO ILL OR LANE TO WALK, BEING BRUTALIZED TO GET THEM TO THEIR FEET FOR SLAUGHTER; MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF CONCENTRATED MANURE DEPOSITED DOWN THE RIVER”. THIS IS THE TERRIBLE SITUATION NOWADAYS.

“WE ARE VOTING FOR ORGANIC OR NOT THE MOMENT WE RUN AN ARTICLE THROUGH THE SUPERMARKET SCANNER. WE CAN CHANGE THE BIGGEST COMPANIES ON EARTH. COMPANIES SHOULD GO THROUGH A PROCESS TO BE RBST FREE IN ALL OUR SUPPLIES. WE NEED CHANGES AT THE POLICY LEVEL SO THAT CARROTS ARE A BETTER DEAL THAN THE CHIPS”.

JOEL SALATIN: 4. “ IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF AS A NATIONAL POLICY WE SAID WE WOULD BE ONLY SUCCESSFUL IF WE HAD FEWER PEOPLE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL NEXT YEAR THAN LAST YEAR. HOW ABOUT THAT FOR SUCCESS? THE IDEA WOULD BE THEN TO HAVE NUTRITIOUS, DENSE, UNADULTERATED FOOD THAT PEOPLE THAT ATE IT ACTUALLY FELT BETTER, HAD MORE ENERGY AND WEREN´T SICK AS MUCH. YOU SEE, THAT´S A NOBLE GOAL!” (FOOD INC. /WATCH DOCUMENTARY FREE ONLINE. FILMED BY ROBERT KENNER https://vimeo.com/29575879 ).

BEARING IN MIND THE 48 MILLION FOODBORNE ILLNESS CASES OCCURING IN THE U.S., IT IS ONLY FAIR TO ENACT THESE 20 BILLS THE SOONER THE BETTER:

 1. NO INDUSTRY IS ALLOWED TO DEPOSIT THEIR RUNOFFS ( DIRTY WATER, MANURE AND OTHERS ) DOWN THE RIVERS OR ELSEWHERE IN NATURE, TO AVOID TRANSCONTAMINATION.

 2. FIELDS MUST BE SPRAYED ONLY WITH CLEAN WATER FOR IRRIGATION, TO PREVENT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FROM BEING CONTAMINATED BEFORE HARVEST. ALL PESTICIDES MUST BE BANNED, SINCE THE VEGETABLES AND FRUIT BEING SPRAYED WITH THEM PUT PEOPLE´S HEALTH IN DANGER.

3. NEITHER COWS, PIGS, CHICKENS NOR ANY ANIMAL MUST BE LEFT STANDING ANKLE DEEP IN MANURE NEITHER IN FARMS NOR IN INDUSTRIAL PLANTS TO PREVENT INFECTIONS AND UNSANITARY CONDITIONS FROM HAPPENING.

4. A TOTAL BAN ON SLAUGHTERING PIGS AND COWS ALIVETHE BARBARISM THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON IN SLAUGHTERHOUSES HAS TO BE ERADICATED. PIGS AND COWS MUST BE GIVEN A SHOT IN ORDER TO FREE THEM FROM THE TORMENTED AGONY BILLIONS OF THEM HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED SO FAR. NONE OF US WANT TO SEE SUCH RETROGRADE PRACTICES ANY MORE.

5. ALL CHICKENS, COWS AND PIGS MUST GET THE CURE THEY NEED WHEN THEY GET SICK INSTEAD OF BEING ABUSED BY NEITHER INDUSTRY MANAGERS NOR BY FARMERS. THESE BEINGS DO NOT DESERVE THE DISRESPECT MOST SHOW TOWARDS THEM.

6. ALL CHICKENS, COWS AND PIGS MUST SEE THE LIGHT TO PRESERVE THE ANIMAL´S HEALTH AND OURS. UP TO NOW THEY HAVE BEEN KEPT PRETTY MUCH IN THE DARK AND THAT IS NOT RIGHT. ALL ANIMALS MUST BE KEPT IN OLD STYLE HOUSES WITH OPEN WINDOWS.

7. NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO MAKE A CHICKEN GROW 5.5 POUNDS IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS. ALL BAD PRACTICES GROWING THEM IN 49 DAYS MUST BE PENALIZED. CHICKENS ARE BEING BRUTALIZED, MAKING THEM OVERGROW REALLY FAST AND THEIR FEET CANNOT STAND SO MUCH OVERWEIGHT, FLOPPING DOWN AND DYING ON FILTHY FLOORS. THESE IRRESPONSIBLE PRACTICES MUST BE STOPPED AT ONCE.

8. INDUSTRY AND RESTAURANT INSPECTIONS SHOULD BE CONDUCTED REGULARLY.

9. CUSTOMERS WOULD FIND IT HELPFUL TO SEE A SIGN WITH THE LATEST INSPECTION SCORE OUTSIDE EACH RESTAURANT SO THAT THEY CAN DECIDE WHICH RESTAURANT TO GO TO BASED ON THAT INFORMATION. THUS ALL RESTAURANTS MUST HAVE A SIGN OUTSIDE TO SHOW THEIR LATEST INSPECTION SCORE .

10. NO BUTCHER IS ALLOWED TO GET ENGAGED IN CHECKING OUT CLIENTS SINCE BUTCHERS HANDLE MEAT WITH THEIR HANDS AND THAT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH TOUCHING NOTES AND COINS. NOTES AND COINS ARE PACKED WITH GERMS AND BACTERIA, AND CHECKING OUT IMPLIES TOUCHING MONEY AND CATCHING GERMS, WHICH ARE SPREAD ON THE MEAT THEY TOUCH AFTERWARDS, WHEN THE BUTCHER IS ATTENDING TO OTHER CUSTOMERS. THUS, ANOTHER PERSON OTHER THAN THE BUTCHER MUST CARRY OUT THE CHECKING OUT.

11. INDUSTRY EQUIPMENT MUST BE CLEANED RIGHT AFTER WORK ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS IS AS IMPORTANT AS IT IS WASHING OUR HANDS BEFORE WE HANDLE FOOD.

12. NO TRUCK SHALL BE ALLOWED TO BE USED UNLESS IS COMPLETELY CLEAN, EVEN IF IT IS FOR TRANSPORTING ANIMALS. UNFORTUNATELY SOMETIMES WE SMELL THE NASTY SMELL OF SOME TRUCKS TRANSPORTING ANIMALS WHEN WE WALK BY ONE OF THOSE AND THAT MUST BE PENALIZED. ANIMALS ARE BEINGS THAT HAVE TO BE KEPT IN SANITARY CONDITIONS BECAUSE THEY DESERVE RESPECT AND BECAUSE THEIR MEAT WILL BE HEALTHIER AND TASTIER THAT WAY TOO.

13. ALL MEAT MUST BE ANTIBIOTIC-FREE.

14. NO INDUSTRY IS ALLOWED TO LET ANY SICK CHICKEN, COW OR PIG GO TO THE PLANT FOR PROCESSING.

15. LABELINGS MUST BE IN CONFORT-SIZED PRINT   CONTAINING COMPLETE INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS. USUALLY THE PRINT ON THE LABELINGS IS EXTREMELY SMALL AND THUS AS MOST CANNOT READ IT    MANY DECIDE NOT TO BUY THE PRODUCT FOR THAT VERY REASON. FINE PRINT MAKES US DISTRUST, AND RIGHTFULLY SO.

16. BAD LABOR PRACTICES FROM THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY LIKE CUTTING WAGES AND SPEEDING UP PRODUCTION MUST BE ERRADICATED.

17. MEAT PACKING WORKERS MUST HAVE THEIR LABOR UNIONS TO DEFEND THEIR RIGHTS. NO COMPANY MANAGER CAN AGREE ON GETTING RID OF WORKERS FOR NO REASON.

18. ALL ALUMINUM COOKING POTS, SAUCEPANS AND CASSEROLES MUST BE BANNED FROM ALL RESTAURANTS, BARS AND PUBLIC PLACES, SINCE ALUMINUM IS TOXIC AND DANGEROUS. ALUMINUM POTS BLEACH ALUMINUM INTO OUR FOOD. SOME PEOPLE DEVELOP LIVER  AND CONSTIPATION PROBLEMS, AMONG MANY OTHER EFFECTS. ALL THESE CONTAINERS SHOULD BE MADE OF STAINLESS STEEL.

19. ONCE OIL HAS BEEN USED IN COOKING TWICE IT HAS TO BE THROWN AWAY. IF USED OIL WERE USED FOR A THIRD TIME THEN IT WOULD NOT BE HEALTHY, AND WE DO NOT WANT THAT. THIS IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION SHOULD BE SENT TO EACH FOOD BUSINESS EVERYWHERE.

20. ALL NEW RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS MUST HAVE INFRARED-CONTROLLED TOUCHLESS BASIN TAPS IN KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS. THESE FUNCTIONAL TAPS ACTIVATE THE WATER JET AUTOMATICALLY, AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT IN ORDER TO AVOID THE BACTERIA OTHERS LEAVE ON ANY TAP EVERY TIME SOMEONE TOUCHES IT. SECOND, ENSURING THE NECESSARY HYGIENE  FEWER CANCER DIAGNOSED CASES WILL BE IN THE FUTURE. THIRD, THESE INFRARED TAPS WILL HELP US ALL AVOID WASTING WATER SINCE THE WATER JET IS ONLY ACTIVATED WHEN IT´S NEEDED, THAT IS ONLY WHEN THE TAP DETECTS OUR HANDS UNDER THE TAP. YES! A GREAT INVENTION THAT WE, WORLD CITIZENS, DESERVE AND NEED.

WE, WORLD CITIZENS, CANNOT BE CONFIDENT IN THE SAFETY OF THE FOOD SUPPLY UNTIL WORLD LEADERS, AND MULTINATIONAL MANAGERS STOP THEIR DEPRAVED PRACTICES. WE ALL KNOW WHO THE BIG CHEESE AT THIS FARM INDUSTRY IS, HE WHO NOBODY DARES INCRIMINATE. SO, LET ´S ADDRESS HIM AND TELL HIM: “MR. M., YOU HAVE PROBABLY REALIZED BY NOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS WRONG. RIGHT? LET´S ADMIT IT, YOU PROBABLY STARTED YOUR BUSINESS WITH THE BEST OF INTENTIONS, WANTING TO BECOME A MAN OF SUCCESS, RIGHT? AND THEN, YES, WE KNOW, GREED AND MONEY GOT IN THE WAY SPOILING EVERYTHING. YOU DID NOT REALIZE WHAT YOU NEEDED WAS TO BECOME A MAN OF VALUE. ONCE YOU ADMIT YOU FELL INTO THAT TRAP YOU ARE READY TO DO SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF, BECAUSE, LIKE CONFUCIUS (551 BC-479BC) SAID “OUR GREATEST GLORY IS NOT IN NEVER FALLING, BUT IN RISING EVERY TIME WE FALL”, “IT IS EASY TO HATE AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO LOVE. THIS IS HOW THE WHOLE SCHEME OF THINGS WORKS. ALL GOOD THINGS ARE DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE AND BAD THINGS ARE VERY EASY TO GET” (CONFUCIUS QUOTES.BRAINYQUOTE). 

WE ARE POSITIVE THE FOLLOWING 6 WELL-KNOWN THINKERS WOULD POINT OUT THESE MORAL VALUES TO YOU, MR. M.:

AND THIS IS WHAT WE ASK YOU TO DO TOO, TO QUIT THE BAD PRACTICES AND START FROM SQUARE ONE AGAIN. ONLY THEN WHATEVER YOU DO WILL HAVE SOME MEANING TO THE WORLD, TO YOUR SOUL AND INDEED TO GOD.

2. FRANCIS OF ASSISI (C. 1182-1226), ITALIAN RELIGIOUS LEADER: “ IF YOU HAVE MEN WHO WILL EXCLUDE ANY OF GOD´S CREATURES FROM THE SHELTER OF COMPASSION AND PITY, YOU WILL HAVE MEN WHO WILL DEAL LIKEWISE WITH THEIR FELLOW MEN”

6. ALBERT EINSTEIN: “IT HAS BECOME APPALLINGLY OBVIOUS THAT OUR TECHNOLOGY HAS EXCEEDED OUR HUMANITY“. (ALBERT EINSTEIN QUOTES-BRAINYQUOTE).

MR. M. , YOU HAVE GOT STILL TIME TO LIVE UP TO YOUR NAME, AND MAKE US CHANGE OUR MIND ABOUT YOU. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE GOT TO LOSE TO WIN LATER ON. IT IS TIME TO LOSE. ACCEPT IT AND START AGAIN LIKE ONLY A MAN COMMITTED TO STRIVING FOR THE WELL-BEING OF ALL OUR BROTHERS AND SOCIETY WOULD DO. WELL THEN, MR. M., YOU ARE OUR LORD´S SON, AND MY BROTHER AS WELL, AND SO THE ONLY LEFT PATH TO GO IS NEITHER HIGHWAYS NOR ROUNDABOUTS BUT PRAYING. TALK TO OUR LORD, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE IT BECAUSE NOBODY EVER SHOWED YOU THE WAY, AND TELL HIM: “ THANK YOU LORD, I LOVE YOU LORD, HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS MESS AND START DOING SOMETHING GOOD, SOMETHING I CAN FEEL PROUD OF”. ASK GOD TO HELP YOU FIND IT EASY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS NOT, TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE LIFE OF OUR BODY IS OUR SOUL, AND THAT THE LIFE OF OUR SOUL IS GOD”.

SOME MONTHS AGO I HEARD A RADIO PROGRAMME ON THE SUFFERING  ANIMALS ARE GOING THROUGH, SPECIFICALLY ON PIGS´ BRUTALIZED PRACTICES, ONCE THEY ENTER THE SLAUGHTERING PLANT. SLAUGHTERING PLANT WORKERS SAID MANY PIGS START TREMBLING THE MOMENT THEY SEE OTHER PIGS ARE PUSHED INTO BOILING WATER ALIVE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE PAIN AND STRESS THESE PIGS BEAR UNTIL THEY DIE IS TREMENDOUS. THERE IS A NAME FOR THIS AND IT IS BRUTALITY. THIS SADISM HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS ALL OVER THE WORLD AND IT SHOULD BE PENALIZED. WE, HUMAN BEINGS, ARE NOT ENTITLED TO MAKE ANY OTHER BEING GO THROUGH UNNECESSARY SUFFERING. IF A PIG HAS TO BE SLAUGHTERED, SIMPLY GIVE HIM AN INJECTION SO THAT THE PIG IS NOT AWARE OF WHAT FATE AWAITS HIM. IT IS THE LEAST ONE SHOULD DO, UNLESS HE WANTS THAT BRUTALIZATION REBOUND TO HIM SOMEHOW, SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE. THIS TERRIFYING TESTIMONY HAS BEEN ON MY MINE EVER SINCE, FEELING SORRY FOR THESE LOVELY INNOCENT CREATURES.

ANOTHER TERRIFYING TESTIMONY A BRICKLAYER SHARED WITH ME HAD TO DO WITH PIGS AS WELL. HE SAID THAT ALL THE TIME HE WAS WORKING IN THE PIGGERIES HE SAW PIGS´ FEET COVERED WITH CANCER. THE MOMENT I HEARD THAT TERRIBLE FACT I FELT BAD FOR THE PIGS THEMSELVES, AND FOR OURSELVES AS CUSTOMERS, WHO BUY HAM. AS A MATTER OF FACT, LATELY, TO BE MORE PRECISE, FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS, AFTER EATING HAM WE DO NOT FEEL AS WELL AS WE USED TO. NO WONDER WE LOOK EVEN WORSE AFTER EATING HAM FROM PIGS WHO ARE SICK AND WHOSE FEET AND OTHER ORGANS ARE CARCINOGENIC. IN SPAIN ABOUT A YEAR AGO AUTHORITIES STATED HAM LABELINGS REGARDING THE DIFFERENT QUALITIES WERE NOT RIGHT. WELL, TIME IS KICKING OUT AND HAM IS NOT WHAT IT WAS NOR WHAT SHOULD BE.    MOST OF THE TIME BESIDES BEING DIFFICULT TO FIND ACORN  HAM (=JAMÓN DE BELLOTA) ANYWHERE YOU LOOK, IF YOU HAPPEN TO FIND IT, ONCE YOU EAT IT, YOU VERY LIKELY GET CONSTIPATED FOR 2 DAYS BECAUSE OF ALL THE CHEMICALS THEY INJECT INTO THEM. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN SAY 6 YEARS AGO WHEN WE ALL ENJOYED GOOD HAM. THERE ARE ONLY TWO GOOD THINGS OUT OF ALL THIS MESS: ONE IS THAT MANY OF US SPEND LESS MONEY BECAUSE MANY OF US DO NOT BUY HAM ANY MORE; THE OTHER ONE IS THAT WE DO NOT GAIN WEIGHT AS MUCH AS BEFORE AND KEEP IN SHAPE BETTER. REGULATORS ARE DOING A DISSERVICE TO CUSTOMERS NOT DOING THE INSPECTIONS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO TO KEEP US ALL UNDER SAFETY CONDITIONS

 ALL THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH PROBLEMS ARE BECAUSE HUMAN BEINGS INSIST ON MAKING THINGS COMPLICATED INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM SIMPLE, JUST LIKE JOEL SALATIN DOES. HE IS A NOBLE EXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US. IT IS A REAL PLEASURE TO HEAR HIM, SEE HOW RESPECTFULLY HE TREATS EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING, AND HOW HUMBLE HE IS. IT IS TIME FOR ALL OF US TO CHANGE. WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME AND WE ALL NEED TO HAVE DONE SOMETHING WORTH LOOKING AT DURING OUR STAY HERE.

NEITHER MOE PARR NOR CAROLE MORISON DESERVED BEING PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. WE DO NOT DESERVE TO DO WITHOUT MOE PARR AND CAROLE MORISON, AS RIGHTEOUS FARMERS THAT WE ALL WANT TO HAVE NEXT TO US.

THE FACT THAT AMMONIA KILLS BACTERIA IS NOT AN ARGUMENT TO BE USED AS A PROCESSING TOOL FROM THE FOOD SAFETY POINT OF VIEW. AMMONIA COVERS UP THE INCIDENTS OF E.COLI 0157:H7 HARMING PEOPLE´S HEALTH. NO THANK YOU! WE DO NOT WANT HI-TECH FIXES SUCH AS AMMONIA. WE DO NOT WANT HAMBURGER MEAT CLEANED WITH AMMONIA TO KILL E.COLI. WE WOULD RATHER STICK TO THE WHOLESOME WAY, JUST LIKE JOEL SALATIN DOES. OH YEAH! KEEP IT UP, JOEL!

I WISH I COULD EAT  THAT LOVELY BREAD FROM QUINTANA MARTÍN GALINDEZ (BURGOS.SPAIN), RIGHT NOW, LIKE I USED TO, WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL ON MY SUMMER HOLIDAYS OVER THERE. THAT WAS THE BEST BREAD I HAVE EVER TRIED. IT WAS HEALTHY. NOW IT IS NOT THE SAME. I ALSO MISS SHERYL GORDON´S CORN BUNS. SHERYL GORDON WAS MY  FOSTER  MOTHER IN THE U.S., AND I CAN SAY THAT I ENJOYED THOSE CORN BUNS A THOUSAND MORE TIMES THAN GOING TO THE MANY RESTAURANTS WE USED TO GO TO, BECAUSE MY AMERICAN FAMILY WAS FOND OF EATING OUT. I REMEMBER SHERYL SAID IT WAS HER MOTHER´S RECIPE. I WISH I HAD ASKED HER FOR IT. IF THERE IS ONE PLACE THAT BRINGS ME GOOD MEMORIES AS TO EATING OUT IS CASA POLI IN SANTURTZI (THE BASQUE COUNTRY), WHERE YOU FOUND POLI HIMSELF CHARCOAL-GRILLING  SARDINES, ALWAYS WITH THE SMILE ON HIS FACE. OH GOD!, TODAY WE CAN NEITHER FIND THE BREAD WE WANT TO, NOR THE SARDINES WITH THE LOVE AND HYGIENE POLI PRACTICED. WE WANT THESE OLD-FASHIONED PRACTICES, NOT THE HI-TECH ONES, WHERE HYGIENE IS CONSPICUOUS BY ITS ABSENCE.

IF SOMEONE THINKS THAT WAS REALLY STRANGE JUST WAIT FOR THIS. IT IS ABOUT THIS NEWS WE READ ONLINE ON MAY 17TH THIS YEAR ABOUT A NIGERIAN RESTAURANT WHICH WAS SHOT DOWN BECAUSE THEY SERVED HUMAN FLESH, HAVING BAGS PACKED WITH HUMAN BEINGS´ HEADS IN THE KITCHEN. HOW ABOUT THAT FOR DESSERT? INDEED, THE FOOD SYSTEM IS REALLY IN QUESTION!

STRONG AFFECTIVE BONDS!

 

WHY HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE WORLDWIDE PRODUCED SO MANY FILMS AND DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT WOLVES?, WHY IS THERE A MONUMENT TO THE LAST JAPANESE GRAY WOLF, NARA PREFECTURE, IN JAPAN?, WHY DID GEORG EBERS WRITE OF THE GRAY WOLF “BEING AMONG THE SACRED ANIMALS OF EGYPT, AND NOTING HOW THE NAME LYKOPOLIS, THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN CITY DEDICATED TO ANUBIS, MEANS “CITY OF THE WOLF”?(WIKIPEDIA, GRAY WOLF), WHY DID PETER PAUL RUBENS PAINT ROMULUS AND REMUS NURSED BY THE SHE-WOLF (C. 1616)?, ARE WE GOING TO BE SMARTER THAN OUR ANCESTORS BY IGNORING WHAT OUR WISE GENERATIONS BACK THEN DID AND FOUND OUT FOR US TO DEARLY KEEP? CERTAINLY NOT. THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS, WHICH WILL HELP WOLVES REGAIN THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE AND THAT THEY ONCE HAD.

1.”IN NORSE AND JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY, WOLVES WERE PORTRAYED AS NEAR DEITIES: IN JAPAN GRAIN FARMERS WORSHIPED WOLVES AT SHRINES AND LEFT FOOD OFFERINGS NEAR THEIR DENSBESEECHING THEM TO PROTECT THEIR CROPS FROM WILD BOARS AND DEER. THE ANCIENT GREEKS AND ROMANS ASSOCIATED WOLVES WITH THE SUN GOD APOLLO. IN ROMAN MYTHOLOGY, THE CAPITOLINE WOLF NURSES ROMULUS AND REMUS, THE FUTURE FOUNDERS OF ROME” (WIKIPEDIA. WOLVES IN FOLKLORE, RELIGION AND MYTHOLOGY).

2.“FARLEY MOWAT´S LARGELY FICTIONAL 1963 MEMOIR NEVER CRY WOLF WAS THE FIRST POSITIVE PORTRAYAL OF WOLVES IN POPULAR LITERATURE, AND IS LARGELY CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST POPULAR BOOK ON WOLVES, HAVING BEEN ADAPTED INTO A HOLLYWOOD FILM AND TAUGHT IN SEVERAL SCHOOLS DECADES AFTER ITS PUBLICATION” (WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF).

3.“THE WOLF IS A FREQUENT CHARGE IN ENGLISH ARMORY. IT IS ILLUSTRATED AS A SUPPORTER ON THE SHIELDS OF LORD WELBY, RENDEL AND VISCOUNT WOLSELEY, AND CAN BE FOUND ON THE COAST OF ARMS OF LOVETT AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE WILSONS AND LOWS. WOLF HEADS ARE COMMON IN SCOTTISH HERALDRY, PARTICULARLY IN THE COATS OF CLAN ROBERTSON AND SKENE. THE WOLF IS THE MOST COMMON ANIMAL IN SPANISH HERALDRY. THE WOLF IS FEATURED ON THE FLAGS OF THE CONFEDERATED TRIBES OF THE COLVILLE RESERVATION. IN MODERN TIMES, THE WOLF IS WIDELY USED AS AN EMBLEM FOR MILITARY AND PARAMILITARY GROUPS. IT IS THE UNOFFICIAL SYMBOL OF THE SPETSNAZ, AND SERVES AS THE LOGO OF THE TURKISH GREY WOLVES. DURING THE YUGOSLAV WARS, SEVERAL SERB PARAMILITARY UNITS ADOPTED THE WOLF AS THEIR SYMBOL, INCLUDING THE WHITE WOLVES AND THE WOLVES OF VUCJAK” (WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF).

4.WOLVES ARE LOYAL AND NOBLE. “THE WOLF OF GUBBIO WAS A WOLF THAT, ACCORDING TO THE FIORETTI DI SAN FRANCESCO, TERRORIZED THE UMBRIAN CITY OF GUBBIO UNTIL IT WAS TAMED BY ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI ACTING ON BEHALF OF GOD. WHEN GUBBIO WAS UNDER SIEGE FRANCIS ANNOUNCED HE WAS GOING TO TAKE LEAVE AND MEET THE WOLF. WHEN FRANCIS NEARED THE LAIR OF THE WOLF, THE CROWD HELD BACK AT A SAFE DISTANCE. THE WOLF, HAVING SEEN THE GROUP APPROACH, RUSHED AT FRANCIS. AGAIN FRANCIS MADE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS AND COMMANDED THE WOLF TO CEASE ITS ATTACKS IN THE NAME OF GOD, AT WHICH POINT THE WOLF TROTTED UP TO HIM DOCILELY AND LAY AT HIS FEET, PUTTING ITS HEAD IN HIS HANDS. THE FIORETTI THEN DESCRIBES WORD-FOR-WORD HIS DEALINGS WITH THE WOLF: “BROTHER WOLF, THOU HAST DONE MUCH EVIL IN THIS LAND, DESTROYING AND KILLING THE CREATURES OF GOD WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION; YEA, NOT ANIMALS ONLY HAST THOU DESTROYED, BUT THOU HAST EVEN DARED TO DEVOUR MEN, MADE AFTER THE IMAGE OF GOD; FOR WHICH THING THOU ART WORTHY OF BEING HANGED LIKE A ROBBER AND A MURDERER. ALL MEN CRY OUT AGAINST THEE, THE DOGS PURSUE THEE, AND ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THIS CITY ARE THY ENEMIES; BUT I WILL MAKE PEACE BETWEEN THEM AND THEE, O BROTHER WOLF, IF SO BE THOU NO MORE OFFEND THEM, AND THEY SHALL FORGIVE THEE ALL THY PAST OFFENCES, AND NEITHER MEN NOR DOGS SHALL PURSUE THEE ANY MORE”. THE WOLF BOWED ITS HEAD AND SUBMITTED TO FRANCIS, COMPLETELY AT HIS MERCY. “AS THOU ART WILLING TO MAKE THIS PEACE, I PROMISE THEE THAT THOU SHALT BE FED EVERY DAY BY THE INHABITANTS OF THIS LAND SO LONG AS THOU SHALT LIVE AMONG THEM; THOU SHALT NO LONGER SUFFER HUNGER, AS IT IS HUNGER WHICH MADE THEE DO SO MUCH EVIL; BUT IF I OBTAIN ALL THIS FOR THEE, THOU MUST PROMISE, ON THY SIDE, NEVER AGAIN TO ATTACK ANY ANIMAL OR ANY HUMAN BEING, DOST THOU MAKE THIS PROMISE?” IN AGREEMENT, THE WOLF PLACED ONE OF ITS FOREPAWS IN FRANCIS´ OUTSTRETCHED HAND, AND THE OATH WAS MADE. FRANCIS THEN COMMANDED THE WOLF TO RETURN WITH HIM TO GUBBIO. AT THIS SIGHT, THE MEN WHO HAD FOLLOWED HIM THROUGH THE WALL WERE UTTERLY ASTONISHED AND THEY SPREAD THE NEWS; SOON THE WHOLE CITY KNEW OF THE MIRACLE. THE TOWNSFOLK GATHERED IN THE CITY MARKETPLACE TO AWAIT FRANCIS AND HIS COMPANION, AND WERE SHOCKED TO SEE THE FEROCIOUS WOLF BEHAVING AS THOUGH HIS PET. WHEN FRANCIS REACHED THE MARKETPLACE, HE OFFERED THE ASSEMBLED CROWD AN IMPROMPTU SERMON WITH THE TAME WOLF AT HIS FEET. HE IS QUOTED   AS SAYING: “HOW MUCH WE OUGHT TO DREAD THE JAWS OF HELL, IF THE JAWS OF SO SMALL AN ANIMAL AS A WOLF CAN MAKE A WHOLE CITY TREMBLE THROUGH FEAR?”. WITH THE SERMON ENDED, FRANCIS RENEWED HIS PACT WITH THE WOLF PUBLICLY, ASSURING IT THAT THE PEOPLE OF GUBBIO WOULD FEED IT FROM THEIR VERY DOORS IF IT CEASED ITS DEPREDATION. ONCE MORE THE WOLF PLACED ITS PAW IN FRANCIS´HAND. THEREFATER, GUBBIO VENERATED FRANCIS AND HE RECEIVED GREAT PRAISE FROM ITS CITIZENS. MANY OF THEM WERE CONVINCED BY THE MIRACLE AND OFFERED THEIR THANKS TO GOD, GOING ON TO BE CONVERTED. THIS EPISODE IN THE FIORETTI IS CONCLUDED WITH A NOTE THAT THE WOLF LIVED FOR A FURTHER TWO YEARS AT GUBBIO, GOING FROM HOME TO HOME FOR SUSTENANCE AND HONORING THE PROVISIONS OF ITS AGREEMENT WITH FRANCIS. AT ITS DEATH THE CITY WAS SADDENED, FOR EVEN THOUGH IT HAD SLAIN SO MANY IT WAS A SYMBOL OF THE SANCTITY OF FRANCIS AND THE POWER OF GOD. ACCORDING TO TRADITION, GUBBIO GAVE THE WOLF AN HONORABLE BURIAL AND LATER BUILT THE CHURCH OF ST. FRANCIS OF THE PEACE AT THE SITE. DURING RENOVATIONS IN 1872, THE SKELETON OF A LARGE WOLF, APPARENTLY SEVERAL CENTURIES OLD, WAS FOUND UNDER A SLAB NEAR THE CHURCH WALL AND THEN REBURIED INSIDE” (WIKIPEDIA. WOLF OF GUBBIO).

5.WOLVES ARE LOVING CREATURES. “ONE OF THE EARLIEST STORIES OUT THERE ABOUT WOLVES IS THE STORY OF A BOY THAT WAS RAISED BY A PACK OF THEM” (WOLVES IN CULTURE-WOLF FACTS AND INFORMATION). “DINA SANICHAR WAS REMOVED FROM A WOLVES´CAVE IN 1867 WHEN HE WAS ABOUT SIX YEARS OLD. DINA WAS DISCOVERED WHEN HUNTERS IN THE JUNGLES OF BULANDSHAHR WERE ASTONISHED TO SEE A BOY FOLLOW A WOLF INTO HER DEN, RUNNING ON ALL FOURS. THEY SMOKED OUT THE WOLF AND HER COMPANION AND SHOT THE WOLF” (10 FERAL HUMAN CHILDREN RAISED BY ANIMALS). THIS STORY IS THE EPITOME OF LACK OF AWARENESS. IN THIS CASE HUNTERS SHOWED COMPLETE LACK OF AWARENESS AS TO THE LOVING CREATURES WOLVES ARE . EVEN THOUGH THEY SAW THE WHOLE PICTURE THEY DID NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY OBSERVED AND THEY MISUNDERSTOOD THE WHOLE SCENE. “MARCOS RODRÍGUEZ PANTOJA (BORN IN AÑORA ON 7 JUNE 1946) IS A NOTED FERAL CHILD. HE WAS REPORTEDLY SOLD TO A HERMITIC GOATHERDER AT SEVEN AND AFTER THE GOATHERDER´S DEATH HE LIVED ALONE WITH THE WOLVES IN THE SIERRA MORENA. AT 19, HE WAS RETURNED TO CIVILIZATION, BUT HAD DIFFICULTY ADJUSTING. GABRIEL JANER MANILA WENT ON TO WRITE A PHD THESIS CONCERNING HIM, WHICH WAS TITLED HE JUGADO CON LOBOS. HE LATER BECAME THE SUBJECT OF THE FILM ENTRE LOBOS (AMONG WOLVES), IN WHICH HE APPEARS BRIEFLY” (MARCOS RODRÍGUEZ PANTOJA. WIKIPEDIA, THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA).ONE OF THE MOST WELL-DOCUMENTED CASES OF CHILDREN RAISED BY WILD ANIMALS IS THAT OF KAMALA AND AMALA, BETTER KNOWN AS THE “WOLF CHILDREN”. DISCOVERED IN 1920 IN THE JUNGLE OF GODAMURI, INDIA, THE GIRLS, AGED 3 AND ABOUT 8, HAD BEEN LIVING WITH A SHE-WOLF AND HER PACK. IT´S NOT KNOWN IF THE GIRLS WERE FROM THE SAME FAMILY, BUT THE MAN WHO FOUND THE GIRLS, REVEREND J.A.L. SINGH, TOOK THEM BACK TO HIS ORPHANAGE, WHERE HE TRIED TO GET THEM, ACCUSTOMED TO THEIR HUMAN SURROUNDINGS. WHILE THE GIRLS MADE SOME PROGRESS OVER THE YEARS, BOTH EVENTUALLY CAME DOWN WITH FATAL ILLNESSES, LEAVING THE REVEREND TO WONDER “IF THE RIGHT THING TO DO WOULD HAVE BEEN TO LEAVE THESE CHILDREN IN THE WILD WHERE I FOUND THEM” (6 CASES OF CHILDREN BEING RAISED BY ANIMALS. THE WEEK MAGAZINE ). FOR SURE THESE GIRLS MISSED THEIR WOLVES´LOVE AND THE LACK OF IT TRIGGERED THOSE FATAL ILLNESSES THEY BOTH SUFFERED. WHO ARE MORE HUMAN NOW, WOLVES OR HUMANS WHO SELL THEIR OWN CHILDREN, FOR EXAMPLE? “WOLVES DEVELOP CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS AND STRONG SOCIAL BONDS. THEY OFTEN DEMONSTRATE DEEP AFFECTION FOR THEIR FAMILY AND MAY EVEN SACRIFICE THEMSELVES TO PROTECT THE FAMILY UNIT” (AMAZING FACTS ABOUT GRAY WOLVES-ONEKIND). “THE CAPITOLINE WOLF IS A BRONZE SCULPTURE OF A SHE-WOLF SUCKLING TWO HUMAN INFANTS, INSPIRED BY THE LEGEND OF THE FOUNDING OF ROME. ACCORDING TO THE ROMAN TRADITION, WHEN NUMITOR, GRANDFATHER OF THE TWINS ROMULUS AND REMUS, WAS OVERTHROWN BY HIS BROTHER AMULIUS, THE USURPER ORDERED THE TWINS TO BE CAST INTO THE TIBER RIVER. THE SERVANT, HOWEVER, PLACED THE TWO ON THE BANKS OF THE TIBER RIVER. THE RIVER, WHICH WAS IN FLOOD, ROSE AND GENTLY CARRIED THE CRADLE AND THE TWINS DOWNSTREAM, WHERE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE RIVER DEITY LIBERINUS, THEY WOULD BE ADOPTED BY A SHE-WOLF KNOWN AS LUPA, (WIKIPEDIA. WOLVES IN FOLKLORE, RELIGION AND MYTHOLOGY) WHO CARED FOR THEM UNTIL A HERDSMAN, FAUSTULUS, FOUND AND RAISED THEM. THE CAPITOLINE WOLF HAS BEEN HOUSED SINCE 1471 IN THE PALAZZO DEI CONSERVATORI, ROME. PLINY THE ELDER AND CICERO MENTION IT AS A SACRED OBJECT” (WIKIPEDIA. THE CAPITOLINE WOLF).

6.WOLVES ARE COOPERATIVE. “IN EARLY TIMES WHEN THE INDIANS AND ANIMALS WERE ABLE TO LIVE IN HARMONY, THESE ANIMALS WERE REGARDED IN THE HIGHEST REGARD. THE INDIANS WERE IN AWE OF THEIR ABILITY TO WORK AS A TEAM WHEN IT CAME TO FINDING FOOD AND PROTECTING THEIR OWN. THEY ALSO FOUND THE SOCIAL HIERARCHY OF THEM TO BE INTERESTING” (WOLVES AND HUMANS-WOLF FACTS AND INFORMATION).

7.“AMERICAN BIOLOGIST, STANLEY P. YOUNG, DESCRIBED TAME WOLVES THIS WAY: “ TAME WOLVES ARE STRICTLY “ONE-MAN DOGS”. THEY MAY BE CONFIDING AND PLAYFUL WITH THE MAN WHO RAISED THEM, OR EVEN WITH HIS WHOLE FAMILY, IF FED AND CARED FOR BY THEM, BUT THEY ARE SUSPICIOUS AND TIMID IN THE PRESENCE OF STRANGERS” (WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF).

8.WOLVES ARE ONE OF THE BRAVEST ANIMALS. “ THE INDIANS VIEW THE WOLF AS ONE THAT HAS BEEN SENT TO PROTECT THEM. THE POWER AND COURAGE OF THE WOLVES ARE TRAITS THAT THEY WANT TO HAVE IN THEIR INDIVIDUALS. THE COMMUNITY OF THE WOLFPACK IS SOMETHING THEY WANT TO BRING TO THEIR OWN TRIBE. THIS IS WHY YOU WILL FIND THAT INDIAN CEREMONIES OF EARLY DAYS OFTEN INCLUDE APPRECIATION TOWARDS THE WOLF. TODAY THE ESKIMOS OF ALASKA ARE VERY CARING AND CONSIDERATE TOWARDS THE WOLF. THEY ARE RESPECTFUL OF THEIR NOMADIC LIFE”. (WOLVES IN CULTURE-WOLF FACTS AND INFORMATION ).

9.AN OUSTANDING MASTERPIECE SUCH AS THE MOVIE THE LAST WOLF BY JEAN-JACQUES ANNAUD CAN ONLY BE MADE IF WE CONSIDER WOLVES MAGNIFICENT CREATURES AS THEY REALLY ARE. THERE IS NO WAY THAT SO MANY PROFESSIONALS CAN BE PUT TOGETHER UNLESS WE ARE DEALING WITH SPECIAL COMPANIONS. THE CHERRY ON TOP OF THIS MOVING, ENTERTAINING AND CULTURAL MOVIE IS THE LAST SCENE WHERE THE LAST TWO WOLVES CHOOSE TO DIE AS WARRIORS, DOING THE UNTHINKABLE INSTEAD OF GIVING UP ALLOWING HUMANS TO SHOOT THEM. THE LAST WOLF SHOULD BE SHOWN TO ALL PRIMARY, SECONDARY, UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AND ADULTS. EVERYONE IS IN NEED OF SUCH INSIDE INTO THE WOLF COMMUNITY. THIS MOVIE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT A GOOD FILM SHOULD BE, AND SETS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT EACH OF US SHOULD BE DOING DURING OUR LIFE HERE. THIS MOVIE PAYS TRIBUTE TO WOLVES, TO TRUTH, TO PATIENCE, TO CORRECTION, TO HUMBLENESS AND RESPECT. YES! THESE ARE LESSONS WE STILL HAVE TO LEARN. THE LAST WOLF JUMPING OUT INTO THE VOID TO AVOID BEING SHOT GOT ME REVERING WOLVES. JUST TELL ME WHERE CAN I BUY A TICKET TO GET TO SEE SUCH BRAVERY, AND LOYALTY AS THEIRS AND I WILL GO RIGHT AWAY!

WOLVES ARE MAMMALS JUST LIKE WE ARE BUT THEY ONLY LIVE UP TO SIX TO EIGHT YEARS IN THE WILD, INSTEAD OF TWENTY YEARS IF THEY WERE FED PROPERLY. THEY ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES BECAUSE WE, HUMANS, ARE THEIR GREATEST PREDATOR OUT HERE. “THE WOLF IS THOUGHT TO BE AN ICE AGE SURVIVOR, DATING WOLVES AROUND 300,OOO YEARS AGO. THE WOLF IS ACCEPTED TO BE THE ANCESTOR OF THE DOMESTIC DOG AS THE WOLF IS THOUGHT TO HAVE SELECTIVELY BRED IN ORDER TO BREED APPEALING TRAITS TYPICAL OF PUPPIES AND TO ELIMINATE THE NOT SO APPEALING TRAITS OF ADULT WOLVES. WOLVES ARE CONSIDERED TO BE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES TODAY AS THEY HAVE BEEN WIDELY EXTERMINATED FROM THEIR RANGES BY HUNTING, POISONING AND TRAPPING TO PROCURE THEIR FUR AND TO PROTECT LIVESTOCK. WOLVES HAVE ALSO BEEN SEVERELY AFFECTED BY HABITAT LOSS AND HAVE BEEN PUSHED INTO SMALLER AND SMALLER TERRITORES WHERE THE FOOD SOURCE MAY NOT BE PLENTIFUL ENOUGH TO SUSTAIN A HUNGRY WOLF PACK AND WHERE HEAVY BREEDING OCCURS” ( A-Z-ANIMALS.WOLF ). “THE GRAY WOLF IS CLOSELY RELATED ENOUGH TO SMALL CANIS SPECIES SUCH AS THE EASTERN WOLF, COYOTE AND GOLDEN JACKAL TO PRODUCE FERTILE HYBRIDS. IT IS A SOCIAL ANIMAL, TRAVELLING IN NUCLEAR FAMILIES CONSISTING OF A MATED PAIR, ACCOMPANIED BY THE PAIR´S ADULT OFFSPRING” ( WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF ). “THE GRAY WOLF IS ONE OF THE WORLD´S BEST KNOWN AND WELL RESEARCHED ANIMALS, WITH PROBABLY MORE BOOKS WRITTEN ABOUT IT THAN ANY OTHER WILDLIFE SPECIES. IT HAS A LONG HISTORY OF ASSOCIATION WITH HUMANS, HAVING BEEN DESPISED AND HUNTED IN MOST PASTORAL COMMUNITIES DUE TO ITS ATTACKS ON LIVESTOCK, WHILE CONVERSELY BEING RESPECTED IN SOME AGRARIAN AND HUNTER-SOCIETIES. ALTHOUGH THE FEAR OF WOLVES IS PERVASIVE IN MANY HUMAN SOCIETIES, THE MAJORITY OF RECORDED ATTACKS ON PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ATTRIBUTED TO ANIMALS SUFFERING FROM RABIES. WOLF PACKS ARE TYPICALLY SETTLED, AND USUALLY ONLY LEAVE THEIR ACCUSTOMED RANGES DURING SEVERE FOOD SHORTAGES. THE GRAY WOLF IS GENERALLY MONOGAMOUS, WITH MATED PAIRS USUALLY REMAINING TOGETHER FOR LIFE, UNLESS ONE OF THE PAIR DIES. GRAY WOLVES ALSO PRACTICE ALL OF PARENTAL CARE, IN WHICH A WOLF PAIR MAY ADOPT THE PUP OR PUPS OF ANOTHER” ( WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF ).

“THE GRAY WOLF HAS BEEN FULLY PROTECTED IN ITALY SINCE 1976, AND NOW HOLDS A POPULATION OF 450-500 ANIMALS, WHICH HAS AN ANNUAL INCREASE OF ABOUT 60%. ITALIAN WOLVES ENTERED FRANCE´S MERCANTOUR NATIONAL PARK IN 1993, AND AT LEAST FIFTY WOLVES WERE DISCOVERED IN THE WESTERN ALPS IN 2000” ( WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF ). “WOLVES IN FINLAND ARE PROTECTED ONLY IN THE SOUTHERN THIRD OF THE COUNTRY, AND CAN BE HUNTED IN OTHER AREAS DURING SPECIFIC SEASONS, THOUGH POACHING REMAINS COMMON, WITH 90% OF YOUNG WOLF DEATHS BEING DUE TO HUMAN PREDATION, AND THE NUMBER OF WOLVES KILLED EXCEEDS THE NUMBER OF HUNTING LICENSES, IN SOME AREAS BY A FACTOR OF TWO. FURTHERMORE, THE DECLINE IN THE MOOSE POPULATIONS HAS REDUCED THE WOLF´S FOOD SUPPLY. SINCE 2001, NETHERLANDS, BELGIUM AND DENMARK HAVE ALSO REPORTED WOLF SIGHTINGS PRESUMABLY BY NATURAL MIGRATION FROM ADJACENT COUNTRIES. POLAND PLAYS A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE IN PROVIDING ROUTES OF EXPANSION INTO NEIGHBOURING CENTRAL EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. IN THE EAST, ITS RANGE OVERLAPS WITH POPULATIONS IN LITHUANIA, BELORUSSIA, UKRAINE AND SLOVAKIA. A POPULATION IN WESTERN POLAND EXPANDED INTO EASTERN GERMANY AND IN 2000 THE FIRST PUPS WERE BORN ON GERMAN TERRITORY. IN 2012, AN ESTIMATED 14 WOLF PACKS WERE LIVING IN GERMANY (MOSTLY IN THE EAST) AND A PACK WITH PUPS HAS BEEN SIGHTED WITHIN 15 MILES OF BERLIN. A FEW SLOVAKIAN WOLVES DISPERSE INTO THE CZECH REPUBLIC, WHERE THEY ARE AFFORDED FULL PROTECTION. THE SPECIES IS FULLY PROTECTED IN NEIGHBOURING CROATIA AND SLOVENIA” (WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF).

PLEASE, HUNTING CLUBS, STOP PERCEIVING WOLVES AS COMPETITION WHEN HUNTING ELKS AND OTHERS. WILDLIFE DOES NOT BELONG TO ANY OF YOU, HUNTERS. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE FILTHY RICH OR ROYAL. THE FACT THAT YOU, TYCOONS AND LOADED ONES, HAVE BEEN GRANTED A LICENSE DOES NOT MAKE HUNTING WOLVES FOR SPORT RIGHT. WHEREAS WHEN WOLVES DECIDE TO KILL IS MERELY FOR SUSTENANCE, AND THEY DO IT RIGHTFULLY SO. BUT YOU DO NOT! KILLING WOLVES, ELKS, DEERS, BEARS, ETC., AS A SPORT IS REALLY PATHETIC, AND ABERRANT! KILLING MAGNIFICENT CREATURES LIKE WOLVES WILL NOT HELP YOU LIVE A LIFE THAT YOU CAN REMEMBER. YOUR LIFE WILL BE FILLED WITH QUITE THE OPPOSITE. WE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR EXCUSES SUCH AS THAT YOUR TYCOON FRIENDS HUNT AND A LOT OF DEALS ARE MADE DURING THE HUNTING. WE ALL KNOW, AND YOU DO TOO, THAT ALL THAT IS IRRELEVANT. FORGET ABOUT MONEY AND POPULARITY, AND START BEING YOURSELF. GOD ONCE TOLD NOAH TO PRESERVE A PAIR OF ANIMALS OF EACH SPECIES MAKING IT CLEAR FOR US THAT THEY ARE SACRED AS WE ARE AS WELL, AND THAT THE CIRCLE OF LIFE MUST CONTINUE. THE LION KING BY ROGER ALLERS AND ROB MINKOFF WAS INFLUENCED BY THE BIBLICAL TALES OF JOSEPH AND MOSES, AND HERE WE SEE HOW MUFASA, KING OF LIONS, TELLS HIS SON, SIMBA, ABOUT THE CIRCLE OF LIFE AND THE RESPONSIBILITIES EACH OF US HAS TO PRESERVE. IN THIS CIRCLE OF LIFE WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER. THE MOMENT SOMEONE, A TOWN, A COUNTRY KILLS AN ANIMAL, SAY A WOLF, FOR SPORT, WHEN THIS ANIMAL HAS NOT EVEN ATTEMPTED TO DO ANY HARM WHATSOEVER TO ANYONE THAT IS WHEN THINGS IN GENERAL START GOING WRONG IN THAT PERSON´S LIFE, IN THE TOWN, OR IN THE COUNTRY ITSELF. EVERY LITTLE ACT WE DO IN THIS LIFE HAS REPERCUSSIONS IN OUR OWN LIFE AND IN THE WORLD ITSELF. THEREFORE, THE ONLY WISE THING TO DO HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE IS RESPECT EVERYONE, EVERY ANIMAL AND EVERYTHING ON EARTH, IF WE REALLY WANT LIFE TO BE RESPECTFUL WITH EACH OF US. RIGHT NOW WE CAN ALL SEE NATURE IS NOT HAPPY WITH THE GREED AND DISRESPECT WE HAVE ALL BEEN SHOWING FOR OUR NEIGHBOUR WOLF COMMUNITY AMONG MANY OTHERS. THE SAYING THAT EVERY TOWN HAS WHAT IT DESERVES CAN BE APPLIED TO EVERY CITY, COUNTRY AND OTHERS. EACH OF US IS A NANOPARTICLE COMPARED TO THE WHOLE UNIVERSE. OUR GALAXY, THE MILKY WAY IS JUST ONE AMONG THE THOUSAND MILLION EXISTING GALAXIES IN THE UNIVERSE. AS WE ALL KNOW THE MILKY WAY HAS THOUSANDS OF STARS AND OUR PLANET, THE EARTH, REVOLVES AROUND ONE OF THESE STARS, THE SUN. MISTAKENLY, MANY HUMAN BEINGS THINK THAT EACH ONE OF THEM IS SO POWERFUL AS THE SUN, HAVING EVERYONE REVOLVING AROUND THEM, THINKING THEY ARE ENTITLED TO DO OR UNDO WHATEVER THEY WANT ON THE EARTH AS IF EACH ONE OF THEM WERE THE OWNERS OF THIS PLANET. HOWEVER, NONE OF US OWN THE EARTH. THE EARTH IS OUR HOME. IT IS SUCH A PERFECT, SMART SHELTER FOR HUMAN BEINGS AND ANIMAL COMMUNITES THAT ONLY GOD CAN GET THE CREDIT FOR ITS CREATION. HUNTERS IGNORE THAT BAD PRACTICES LIKE KILLING INNOCENT WOLVES WILL BOUNCE BACK TO THEM SOONER THAN LATER. WHY? IT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS, AND IT MAKES COMPLETE SENSE. WE ALL GET WHAT WE GIVE. THE MORE WE RESEARCH ON LIFE, THAT IS , THE EARTH, THE HARVESTS AND THE ANIMAL AND HUMAN BEING COMMUNITIES THE MORE WE REALIZE EACH ONE OF US GETS WHAT EACH ONE OF US GIVES. SAY EACH ONE OF US WANTS TO START FROM SCRATCH, DESIRES TO STOP BAD PRACTICES AND FINALLY START GIVING, GIVING, GIVING AND GIVING IN ALL DIFFERENT FACETS OF OUR LIFE. SAY, FOR EXAMPLE MR. Q. IS A HUNTER AND HE IS NOT LEADING A HAPPY LIFE BECAUSE OF UNFORTUNATE, UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES LATELY. WELL, THE FIRST THING MR. Q. HAS TO DO IS TO PSYCHOANALYZE HIMSELF. HE HAS TO DO HIS JOB, BEING HONEST WITH HIMSELF, ADMITTING KILLING INNOCENT ANIMALS IS WRONG DESPITE THE FACT MANY OF HIS FRIENDS ARE HUNTERS. MR. Q. HAS TO ADMIT THAT KILLING AN ANIMAL WOULD ONLY BE JUSTIFIABLE IF HUMAN BEING COMMUNITIES WERE UNDER EXTENUATING HUNGER CIRCUMSTANCES. ONLY THEN IT WOULD BE EXCUSABLE. EXCUSES SUCH AS SAYING THAT HUNTING HAS BEEEN A COMMON PRACTICE FOR CENTURIES, OR THAT DOING SO YOU CAN SOCIALIZE, MAKE DEALS OR HANG AROUND, ARE SIMPLY WRONG. WOLVES FEEL PAIN AND ARE CONSCIOUS OF IT AS DOGS ARE TOO. RICH ONES, ROYAL ONES, WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP SLAUGHTERING THESE CARING, SOCIAL NEIHGBOURS OF US?, WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP KILLING MOOSE, BEARS, AND OTHER LARGE ANIMALS? WHEN YOU, HUNTERS, KILL ELKS OR LARGE ANIMALS YOU ARE FORCING OUR LOVING NEIGHBOURS, WOLVES, TO KILL LIVESTOCK TO SURVIVE, THOUGH WOLVES DO NOT WANT TO DO SUCH A THING. OVER THE CENTURIES WOLVES HAVE ALWAYS FED ON ELKS, DEERS AND LARGE ANIMALS. ONLY WHEN HUNTERS STARTED KILLING WOLVES´ PREY WAS WHEN WOLVES DID NOT FIND ANY OTHER NOURISHMENT BUT KILLING SHEEP, AS THEIR ONLY FEED AVAILABLE. WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP BEING SELF-CENTERED?, WOULD YOU REALIZE NONE OF US OWN THE ECOSYSTEM?, WON´T YOU REALIZE WOLVES ARE WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD WHEREAS YOUR HUNTING IS NOT?

MANY PEOPLE DO JUST WHAT THEIR FRIENDS DO, WITHOUT ANALYZING WHETHER THE PRACTICE THEY DO WITH THEIR FRIENDS, SAY HUNTING INNOCENT ANIMALS FOR SPORT, IS RIGHT OR WRONG. IF EACH ONE OF US IS BRAVE ENOUGH TO GET TO THIS POINT, THAT IS, TO ADMIT A TRADITIONAL PRACTICE TO SOCIALIZE, TO HAVE FUN, TO MAKE DEALS OR TO HANG AROUND, AMONG MANY OTHER REASONS, IS TOTALLY WRONG, THEN WE WILL BE ALL ON THE RIGHT TRACK. HUNTERS LIKE MR. Q. ARE OFF TRACK. THEY NEED TO PUT AN END TO THAT BAD PRACTICE, AND OTHERS, IF IT IS THE CASE. ONCE THEY START FROM SQUARE ONE, BEHAVING HUMBLY, LIKE THE NANOPARTICLE EACH ONE OF US IS COMPARED TO THE WHOLE UNIVERSE, THEN THEY WILL SEE, IF THEY ARE PATIENT, HOW THINGS SLOWLY START CHANGING AND WONDERFUL PEOPLE AND LOVE BOUNCE BACK INTO THEIR LIVES. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES BUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS TO REALIZE AND ERRADICATE THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL. WE WANT OUR LIVES TO BE BETTER AND OUR AFTERLIFE INCREDIBLY AWSOME. LET US DO EVERYTHING LOVINGLY, LET US BE PATIENT AND LET US NOT FORGET ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY, AND WE WILL SEE AMAZING THINGS IN OUR WAY.

“WOLVES REQUIRE LARGE AREAS OF CONTIGUOUS HABITAT THAT CAN INCLUDE FORESTS AND MOUNTAINS TERRAIN. SUITABLE HABITAT MUST HAVE SUFFICIENT ACCESS TO PREY PROTECTION FROM EXCESSIVE PERSECUTION, AND AREAS FOR DENNING AND TAKING SHELTER” ( GRAY WOLF-BASIC FACTS ABOUT GRAY WOLVES-DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE ). “ONE OF THE REASONS THAT PEOPLE DON´T LIKE WOLVES IS THAT THEY ARE KNOWN TO KILL DOMESTIC ANIMALS. THE PROBLEM THOUGH ISN´T ONE THAT THE WOLVES SHOULD BE BLAMED FOR. INSTEAD, IT´S THE RESULT OF HUMANS CONTINUALLY MOVING IN ON THE LAND THAT USED TO BE THEIR NATURAL HABITAT TO ROAM. THEY ARE DOING WHAT THEY INSTINCTIVELY ARE PROGRAMMED TO ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF NATURE” (WOLVES AND HUMANS-WOLF FACTS AND INFORMATION).

PLEASE, LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS STOP USING LETHAL METHODS AGAINST WOLVES BECAUSE THEY PLAY A RELEVANT ROLE IN THE WORLD ECOSYSTEM. “KILLING WOLVES BREAKS UP PACKS. SMALLER PACKS HAVE HARDER TIME SUCCESSFULLY BRINGING DOWN LARGE PREY (ELKS, COUGARS, DEERS, ETC.). THEREFORE, SMALLER PACKS ARE OFTEN FORCED TO FIND PREY THAT´S EASIER TO KILL, SUCH AS LIVESTOCK”, THAT IS, WOLVES ARE FORCED TO DO SOMETHING THEY DO NOT WANT TO, JUST BECAUSE THEY CANNOT FIND ANY OTHER SURVIVAL WAY OUT. “BESIDES THAT, WOLVES ARE ONLY RESPONSIBLE FOR LESS THAN 1% OF ALL LIVESTOCK DEATH. COEXISTENCE IS THE RIGHT RANCHING SOLUTION FOR ALL” ( QUICK FACTS-MYTHS BUSTED-LIVING WITH WOLVES ). FARMERS, WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP PERCEIVING WOLVES AS WHAT THEY ARE NOT?

RESEARCH ON YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK SHOWS THAT WOLVES ARE KEYSTONE SPECIES BECAUSE THEY HAVE BOOSTED ECOSYSTEMS SINCE 1995, THAT IS, WHEN WOLVES RETURNED. WOLVES ARE SUCH EXPERTS ON BALANCE THAT WOLVES ACHIEVE AN OPTIMUM EQUILIBRIUM AS TO PREYS (ELKS, COYOTES, JACKALS, DEERS, ETC.), LARGE PREDATORS, AND ALSO VEGETATION ALONG RIVERBANKS. WOLVES PRESENCE MAKE ELKS AND OTHERS MOVE AWAY FROM THESE RIVER BANKS AND SO PLANTS START GROWING THERE AGAIN, WHICH SHELTER SWANS, SONGBIRDS AND OTHERS. ALL THIS GREENERY COOLS THE WATER OF THE RIVER CREATING A BALANCED AQUATIC HABITAT AS WELL. “WOLF PREDATION ON SHEEP IS ONLY 1%, WHEREAS COYOTE PREDATION ON THEM IS 25.3%, WEATHER IS 22.6% , UNKNOWN REASONS IS 7.7%, DISEASE IS 11%, AND LAMBING COMPLICATIONS IS 9%, AMONG 12 PERCENTAGE CATEGORIES ON THE TOPIC”. HAVING MENTIONED THESE STATISTICS THE ONLY GOOD SOLUTION FOR EVERYONE INCLUDING WOLVES AND LIVESTOCK IS COEXISTENCE. “THE RESULT IS FEWER DEAD CATTLE AND SHEEP AND FEWER DEAD WOLVES”. HERE ARE THE STEPS TO BE TAKEN FOR SUCCESSFUL COEXISTENCE:

1.“THE USE OF GUARD DOGS AND NIGHT WATCHMEN PROVIDES ADDED PROTECTION FOR THE HERDS AND FLOCKS”.

2.ELECTRIFIED FENCING, OFFERING PROTECTION FOR NEWBORN ANIMALS, AND NURSING MOTHERS”.

3.“THE COLLARING OF WOLVES AND THE USE OF RADIO TELEMETRY TO KEEP LIVESTOCK AWAY FROM CONFLICT, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT WOLVES OFTEN USE THE SAME DEN EVERY SPRING” ( LIVING WITH WOLVES. RANCHING SOLUTIONS ).

4.THE REASON WHY WOLVES ENTERED AREAS WITH CATTLE IN THE PAST IS BECAUSE THE CARCASSES OF DEAD ANIMALS WERE LEFT ON RANGELAND. THEREFORE, THE SOLUTION IS REMOVING THE CARCASSES OF DEAD CATTLE, SO THAT WOLVES ARE NOT LURED INTO IT.

THE WORLD IS UPSIDEDOWN BECAUSE POLITICIANS ARE NEITHER TRUE NOR HUMBLE ENOUGH TO LEARN FROM THE PAST, NOT REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES. “UNTIL RECENTLY THE RESTORATION OF THE GRAY WOLF TO A PORTION OF ITS NATURAL HABITAT IN THE LOWER 48 STATES WAS ONE OF THE SUCCESS STORIES OF THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT (ESA) OF 1973. HOWEVER, THE JOB IS FAR FROM COMPLETE AND NOW THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR WANTS TO ALLOW THE STATES TO RETURN TO MANY OF THE SAME METHODS OF THE 1800S AND EARLY 1900S THAT LED TO THE ERADICATION OF THE WOLF IN CALIFORNIA AND ELSEWHERE” ( WOLVES THREATENED: ENDING FEDERAL PROTECTION IS A MISTAKE. SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. JULY, 2, 2013 ). THIS IS REALLY SERIOUS AND WE SHOULD ALL BACK UP WOLVES FOR MANY REASONS. WOLVES´ MAIN THREAT IS HUNTING CLUBS. “ELK HUNTING GROUPS MISTAKENLY SEE THE WOLF AS COMPETITION FOR THEIR SPORT. THIS REPRESENTS A GRAVE MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE ECOLOGY OF PREDATOR-PREY RELATIONSHIPS. ANOTHER THREAT WOLVES FACE IS SHEEP AND CATTLE RANCHERS WANTING TO SEE THEM ERADICATED THOUGH “LIVESTOCK LOSSSES TO WOLVES ACCOUNT ONLY FOR LESS THAN 0.1 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL LIVESTOCK IN IDAHO, WYOMING, AND MONTANA IN 2012” THE GRAY WOLF BEING DELISTED IMPLIES “INDISCRIMINATE, AGGRESSIVE HUNTING, TRAPPING AND SNARING OF WOLVES. SINCE DELISTING IN IDAHO, NEARLY 700 WOLVES HAVE BEEN KILLED BY RECREATIONAL HUNTING. IN SOME AREAS OF IDAHO, WOLVES, INCLUDING LACTATING FEMALES AND PUPS, CAN BE KILLED AT ANY TIME. IN 83 PERCENT OF WYOMING, WOLVES CAN BE KILLED “YEAR ROUND, IN ANY NUMBER OF WAYS, WITHOUT A LICENSE. AND MONTANA´S PROPOSED MANAGEMENT PLAN WILL ALLOW UP TO FIVE WOLVES TO BE KILLED PER HUNTER/TRAPPER. THIS IS NOT SCIENTIFIC STEWARDSHIP. THE NOW FAMOUS LONE WOLF OR-7 TRAVELED FROM OREGON TO CALIFORNIA IN DECEMBER 2011 BUT WANDERED BACK IN OREGON IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR. IT DEFIES LOGIC TO DECLARE THE GRAY WOLF POPULATION RECOVERED IN CALIFORNIA. THE SAME IS TRUE IN OTHER STATES WITH EXCELLENT WOLF HABITAT AND ABUNDANT ELK AND DEER SUCH AS UTAH AND COLORADO. LIKE CALIFORNIA, THESE STATES HAVE NO ESTABLISHED WOLF POPULATIONS, YET THERE WOULD BE NO FEDERAL PROTECTION FOR A WOLF SHOULD IT WANDER IN. THIS ACTION WILL END RECOVERY IN THESE STATES BEFORE IT STARTS. WHY DELIST THE GRAY WOLF IN STATES WHERE IT DOES NOT YET EXIST, UNLESS THE GOAL IS TO KEEP THE POPULATION AT ZERO? THE GO-DAY PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FOR THE PROPOSED GRAY WOLF DELISTING ENDS SEPT. 11. NEWLY CONFIRMED SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR SALLY JEWELL NEEDS TO HEAR FROM THE PUBLIC THAT WOLF RECOVERY HAS NOT EVEN BEGUN IN CALIFORNIA AND OTHER STATES. WOLVES NEED OUR VOICES. PLEASE, HOWL YOUR SUPPORT FOR FEDERAL PROTECTION OF THE GRAY WOLF UNTIL RECOVERY IS COMPLETE, AND STOP THE WOLF HUNT” ( WOLVES THREATENED: ENDING FEDERAL PROTECTION IS A MISTAKE-SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. JULY, 2, 2013 ).

HERE ARE SOME MEASURES WE SHOULD ALL BE TAKING TO BE RESPECTFUL TOWARDS OUR NEIGHBOURING MAMMAL COMMUNITY, THE WOLF.

1.THE U.S. CONGRESS SHOULD “STOP UNDERMINING THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT (ESA). “THE STATED GOAL OF THE ESA IS TO SAVE SPECIES FROM EXTINCTION AND TO FULLY RECOVER THE SPECIES BY REMOVING THREATS TO ITS SURVIVAL” ( WOLVES THREATENED: ENDING FEDERAL PROTECTION IS A MISTAKE. SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. JULY, 2, 2013). THESE DELISTING BILLS ARE BEING DRIVEN BY A SMALL GROUP OF EXTREMISTS AND ANTI-GOVERNMENT IDEOLOGIES WHO ARE POURING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO FAT CAT LOBBYISTS AND PRESSURE TACTICS. CONGRESS HAS NO BUSINESS DECIDING WHETHER WOLVES, OR ANY OTHER SPECIES, SHOULD BE LISTED. DELISTING AN ENDANGERED SPECIES THIS WAY SETS A TERRIBLE PRECEDENT AND LEAVES THE ESA VULNERABLE TO AN ENDLESS SUCCESSION OF CONGRESSIONAL DELISTING ATTACKS. MANY SPECIES RELY ON THE ESA FOR THEIR SURVIVAL. ALLOWING THE EROSION OF THIS BEDROCK OF ENVIRONMENTAL LAW WOULD BE CATASTROPHIC FOR OUR NATION. AS STEWARDS OF OUR NATURAL HERITAGE, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE DEFEND THE LAWS THAT PROTECT OUR NATIVE WILDLIFE AND LANDS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. THE PATH TO EXTINCTION IS PAVED WITH ATTACKS LIKE THESE. THAT´S WHY I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO OPPOSE H.R. 884, H.R. 843 AND H.R. 1985 AS WELL AS ALL EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE THE ESA BY CONGRESSIONAL ACTION TO DELIST PROTECTED SPECIES” (TELL CONGRESS TO STOP UNDERMINING THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT- DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE. EMERGENCY- HELP PROTECT WOLVES ).

2.RECREATIONAL HUNTING AND TRAPPING SEASONS ON WOLVES, ELKS AND BEARS SHOULD BE BANNED. A BILL SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY APPROVED TO BAN HUNTING WOLVES, ELKS AND BEARS.

3.COUNTRIES LIKE CANADA, THE FORMER SOVIET UNION, MONGOLIA, CHINA, THE UNITED STATES (WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, ETC.) AND GREAT BRITAIN SHOULD STOP KILLING WOLVES FOR THEIR FUR. A BILL BANNING THE WOLF HUNT SHOULD BE APPROVED RIGHT AWAY.

4.PEOPLE WORLDWIDE SHOULD STOP BUYING FUR CLOTHES.

5.WHOLESALES AND RETAILERS SHOULD REFUSE TO GET FUR CLOTHES AS MERCHANDISE FOR THEIR OWN SHOPS.

6.ALL WORLD FARMERS SHOULD RECEIVE GRANTS FROM THEIR GOVERNMENTS SO THAT FARMERS CAN FINANCE THE PROTECTION THEY NEED FOR THEIR CATTLE, AND COMPENSATIONS FOR THE LOSSES DUE TO WOLVES, WHICH ARE CERTAINLY A FEW, IF AND WHEN FARMERS COMPLY WITH THE HYGIENIC CONDITIONS AGREED UPON INSIDE FARMS AND OUTSIDE, REMOVING CARCASSES OF DEAD SHEEP, IN ORDER NOT TO TEMPT WOLVES INTO IT.

7.ALL WORLD GOVERNMENTS SHOULD SERIOUSLY MAKE SURE ALL THEIR RESPECTIVE PUBLIC HEALTH INSPECTORS DO THEIR JOB. THE FACT THAT MANY FARMS ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE IN UNHEALTHY CONDITIONS DUE TO THE VAST AMOUNT OF DOMESTIC ANIMAL WASTE SCATTERED ALL AROUND THE PLACES IS A REAL PROOF PUBLIC HEALTH INSPECTORS ARE NOT COMPLYING WITH WORLDWIDE GOVENMENTS´ ORDERS. ANOTHER PROOF THAT ADDS TO THIS BAD PRACTICE IS THE FACT THAT WOLF PUPS AND WOLVES, AMONG MANY OTHERS, GET INFECTED, SUFFER A GREAT DEAL, AND SOMETIMES EVEN ATTACK HUMANS BECAUSE OF THE INFECTION, WHICH AGITATES THEIR WHOLE BEING TRANSFORMING THEIR PEACEFUL NATURE INTO AN AGGRESSIVE ONE. WE MUST NOT LET THIS NEGLIGENCE OCCUR AGAIN, BECAUSE IT RESULTS IN TOO MUCH UNNECESSARY PAIN FOR WOLVES AND FOR MOST OF US WHO LOVE THEM. IF WORLDWIDE GOVERNMENTS ASKED THEIR PUBLIC HEALTH INSPECTORS TO MEET THE HEALTH REQUIREMENTS AT FARMS AND WE SEE THE INSPECTORS DO NOT OBEY WE CAN CONCLUDE THESE INSPECTORS WHO FELL TO COMPLY WITH THEIR JOB LET THEIR PALMS BE GREASED. HEALTH INSPECTORS ARE CONSIDERED REGULATORS. IF THEY FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE GOVERNMENT´S ORDERS THEN WE ALL URGENTLY NEED SOME OBJECTIVE WORLD REGULATORS TO WATCH THESE INSPECTORS´ JOB, KEEPING AN EYE ON THE FARMS, MAINLY BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE SPREADING OF DISEASES OR OTHER DISASTERS OF THIS KIND TO STRIKE AGAIN.

8.PRESERVATION OF WOLVES HABITAT. LET US PROTECT FORESTS GROWING FRUIT TREES AND OTHER PERENNIAL ONES SO THAT THEY FIND FEED THROUGH THE YEAR LONG. THIS WAY WHEN PREY DENSITY IS REDUCED WOLVES ARE NOT FORCED TO ATTACK LIVESTOCK SINCE WE, HUMANS, HAVE LIMITED THEIR HUNDREDS OF MILES TO REALLY SMALL AREAS.

9.EDUCATING KIDS FROM A VERY EARLY AGE ABOUT THE VALUE IN PROTECTING WOLVES. SCIENCE TEACHERS SHOULD INCORPORATE THIS HIGH-INTEREST TOPIC IN THEIR EVERY DAY TEACHING TO EDUCATE KIDS IN LOVE AND PRINCIPLES. CERTAINLY, WOLVES TEACH US A LOT, PROVIDING US WITH WISEDOM.

10.MORE MOVIES ABOUT WOLVES SHOULD BE MADE TO FINALLY MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF THE BEAUTY AND VALUE OF WOLVES.

11.WE SHOULD KEEP WOLF PUPS AS PETS IF THEY ARE ORPHAN AND IF JUST AFTER THEIR EYES BEGIN OPENING. “SEVERAL HUNTERS OF THE USFWS KEPT WOLF PUPS AS PETS, WITH THE BEST RESULTS OCCURING WHEN THEY WERE CAUGHT JUST AFTER THEIR EYES BEGAN OPENING. IN CONTRAST, PUPS TAKEN AT 3-4 WEEKS OF AGE PROVED UNMANAGEABLE, WITH ONLY ONE IN 11 OF SUCH PUPS BECOMING TAME, DESPITE ONE MONTH OF EIGHT HOURS PER DAY OF SOCIALIZATION WITH PEOPLE. THOUGH WOLVES ARE TRAINABLE, THEY LACK THE SAME DEGREE OF TRACTABILITY SEEN IN DOGS. MOST ATTEMPTS TO TRAIN WOLVES AS WORKING DOGS HAVE MET WITH FAILURE” ( GRAY WOLF).

THE SAME LOVE AND RESPECT WE FEEL FOR OUR DOGS AND OUR CATS WE SHOULD FEEL FOR WOLVES. “WOLVES AND DOGS ARE PART OF THE SAME SPECIES AS TO THEIR DNA AND OTHER GENETIC STUDIES” ( WIKIPEDIA. GRAY WOLF ). IF SOMEONE SHOT OR SLAUGHTERED OUR DOG WE WOULD FEEL TERRIBLE, RIGHT? WELL, WE SHOULD BE UP IN ARMS AGAINST THE SLAUGHTERING OF WOLVES JUST THE SAME AS WE WOULD REACT WHEN IT COMES TO DOGS, SINCE THIS IS TAKING PLACE NOWADAYS. WE SHOULD ALL FLY IN A FIT OF RAGE WHEN WE HEAR “THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR APPEARS TO BE RESPONDING TO POLITICAL PRESSURE RATHER THAN PEER-REVIEWED SCIENCE TO REMOVE THE GRAY WOLF FROM THE FEDERAL LIST OF ENDANGERED WILDLIFE IN THE REMAINDER OF THE LOWER 48 STATES” (WOLVES THREATENED: ENDING FEDERAL PROTECTION IS A MISTAKE- SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. JULY, 2, 2013 ). “THE WOLF IS ACCEPTED TO BE THE ANCESTOR OF THE DOMESTIC DOG, AS THE WOLF IS THOUGHT TO HAVE SELECTIVELY BRED IN ORDER TO BREED APPEALING TRAITS TYPICAL OF PUPPIES AND TO ELIMINATE THE NOT SO APPEALING TRAITS OF ADULT WOLVES” (WOLF (CANIS RUFUS) – ANIMALS A-Z ANIMALS- ANIMAL FACTS ). WOLVES ARE NOT DANGEROUS. “OVER THE PAST 100 YEARS IN NORTH AMERICA, THERE HAVE BEEN ONLY 2 CASES IN WHICH WOLVES KILLED A HUMAN BEING, WHEREAS BEARS HAVE KILLED 40 SINCE 2000, AND SINCE 1990 COUGARS HAVE KILLED 9. IN THE U.S. DOMESTIC DOGS KILL ABOUT 30 PEOPLE EVERY YEAR” ( TACKLING THE MYTHS- LIVING WITH WOLVES ). WHO IS DANGEROUS NOW?

WOLVES NEED HUMAN BEINGS LIKE KEVIN COSTNER, JEAN-JACQUES ANNAUD, MARC BEKOFF, BROOKS FRAY, JAMIE RAPPAPORT AND DON BARRY.  WOLVES NEED EDUCATING ADS WHERE WE SEE FOR EXAMPLE THE SCENE WHERE KEVIN COSTNER AND HIS WOLF, TWO SOCKS, ARE PLAYING AND CHASING EACH OTHER. WOLVES NEED LECTURES AND ARTICLES DEFENDING THEIR RIGHT TO LIVE, JUST SO RIGHTFULLY SO AS OURS. WOLVES NEED EACH OF US HOWLING FOR THEIR PROTECTION. IF WE BACK WOLVES UP GOD WILL ALWAYS BACK US UP, THAT IS, WE WILL ALWAYS BE PROTECTED AGAINST ANYTHING, NO MATTER WHAT. WHEREAS, IF WE DO NOT DO AS FOR WOLVES WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM US WE WILL BE UNPROTECTED OUT THERE, AND WE WILL BE LETTING EVIL IN OUR LIVES AND IN THE UNIVERSE AS WELL. ARE WE GOING TO BE SIMPLY DANCERS OR RATHER HUMANS DURING OUR STAY HERE? THE BAND THE KILLERS URGED US TO THINK OF THIS IN HIS FAMOUS SONG ARE WE DANCERS OR ARE WE HUMANS? CERTAINLY, WE WANT TO BE HUMANS, WE WANT TO TAKE THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING LIKE LIEUTENANT JOHN J. DUNBAR ( DANCES WITH WOLVES ) AND LIKE CHEN ZHEN (THE LAST WOLF), WHO BOTH BECOME FRIENDS WITH WOLVES AND CRY FOR THEM WHEN THEY REGRETFULLY DIE.

THE MORE WE KNOW ABOUT WOLVES THE MORE WE SEE THE VALUE IN PROTECTING THEM AND THEIR HABITAT. LET US MAKE EACH DAY OF THE 365 DAYS AN EARTH DAY SO THAT WE CAN ENJOY RESPECT FOR OUR HOME AND OUR NEIGHBOURS HOME. THE BEAUTY OF THE WILD IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL OF ALL BEAUTIES. THE MOST EXPENSIVE, FAMOUS SCULPTURE MEANS NOTHING COMPARED TO A CENTENARY TREE; A FUR JACKET MEANS NOTHING COMPARED TO A WOLF; A PRICEY, MODERN PAINTING MEANS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE BEAUTY OF AN INTELLIGENT, LOVING, NOBLE ANIMAL AS THE WOLF IS. ALL THE RAGE SKYSCRAPPERS RUN BY GREEDY HUMANS MEAN NOTHING COMPARED TO LOYALTY, BRAVERY AND LOVE. LET US PRESERVE THE HABITAT WOLVES NEED SO THAT WE ARE NOT A THREAT TO OUR WOLF NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES. INANIMATE THINGS LIKE STATUES, CARS, WATCHES, CLOTHES, ETC., WILL NOT GIVE US THE BOOST WE NEED, AS NATURE ITSELF WILL DO FOR US IN THE SHORT AND LONG RUN. WE DEPEND ON NATURE AND ITS MAGNIFICENT WOLVES TO FEEL THEIR PASSION FOR LIFE, THEIR BRAVERY, LOYALTY AND THE LOVE FOR THEIR OWN ONES. THEY ARE OUR ROLE MODELS. HOWEVER, IF WE CONTINUE DESTROYING THEIR SPACE BECAUSE WE MISTAKENLY GO ON THINKING WE ARE GODS RUNNING THE SHOW HERE AND THERE WE WILL END UP DESTROYING WHAT SHOULD BE MOST DEAR TO US, OUR MOTHER NATURE, OUR OXYGEN BOOST, OUR TREASURE.

LET US NOT ALLOW POLITICIANS MEDDLE JEOPARDIZING PROTECTION OF ENDANGERED SPECIES LIKE WOLVES. EVERYONE OF US SHOULD TELL THE U.S. CONGRESS TO PROTECT WOLVES, RELISTING THEM IN THE ESA. LET US TAKE THIS SUBJECT SERIOUSLY AND LET US BE AWARE THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS GETTING MONEY THROUGH HUNTING TAXES AND FEES. OF COURSE, ALL THIS IS DIRTY MONEY AND ALL THESE HUNTING TAXES, FEES AND LICENSES SHOULD BE ERADICATED.

YES, NOW WE REALIZE WE HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF, BELIEVING THINGS WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT WERE NOT TRUE ABOUT OUR LOVELY WOLVES. NEVERTHELESS, WE ALREADY KNOW ALL THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR SOCIAL NEIGHBOUR, THE WOLF. WE HAVE GOT TO LOVE WOLVES BECAUSE WE LOVE DOGS, AND RESEARCH HAS SHOWN DOGS DERIVE FROM WOLVES. WOLVES AND DOGS ARE SO VERY MUCH RELATED THAT THEY SHARE ALMOST IDENTICAL EMOTIONS, BEHAVIOURS AND GENES. WE, HUMANS, WILDLIFE AND LIVESTOCK HAVE TO COHABITATE, BE CARING AND CONSIDERATE WITH WOLVES LIKE ESKIMOS IN ALASKA ARE WITH THEM. ESKIMOS HAVE NEVER REPORTED ANY DEATH OF HUMANS BY WOLVES, AND WE ALL KNOW WHY AT THIS POINT. IF WE REALLY CARE FOR WOLVES AND RESPECT THEM IN EVERY WAY WE WILL COEXIST WITH THEM AND BE FRIENDS WITH THEM. THEY ARE SUCH AMAZING, GOOD NATURE CREATURES THAT CAN ONLY DO GOOD TO OURSELVES IF WE ARE IN THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING, RATHER THAN IN THE TRACK OF THE CREEPY PREDATOR THAT DESTROYS ONE OF THE TREASURES GOD BLESSED FOR US ALL. THEY ARE SO SMART THAT WE SHOULD NOT UNDERESTIMATE THEM BUT BE FRIENDS WITH THEM. PROTECTING AND FEEDING THEM DURING WINTER WILL SURELY HELP GAINING THEIR TRUST AGAIN, IF WE ARE PATIENT AND STOP OUR GREED FOR ONCE.

WE ALL NEED TO STOP FOR A MINUTE WHATEVER WE ARE UP TO AND THINK OF WHAT WE ARE DOING KILLING THOUSANDS OF BEAUTIFUL LIVES. YES, THESE ARE CRIMES. NO SKYSCRAPER WITH THE BEST OF VIEWS, NO SPACE TRIP, NO ROLLING OUT THE RED CARPET, NO OSCAR, NO GRAMMY, NO CAT WALK, NOT THE BEST OF CONNECTIONS, NOT ALL THE RAGE TECHNOLOGY, NOT THE MOST SOPHISTICATED PLACE IN THE WORLD, NOT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH OR CITY WORLDWIDE, NO NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO A WOLF´S LIFE. I WOULD SAY “NO” TO ALL OF THOSE JUST FOR ONE WOLF´S LIFE. I SWEAR! IT IS JUST NOT RIGHT TO SLAUGHTER THESE SACRED MAMMALS, AS DOGS AND WE, HUMANS, ARE SACRED ONES AS WELL. IF SOMEONE TOLD ME RIGHT NOW TO MAKE A WISH, I WOULD NOT SAY BECOMING RICH OR FAMOUS BUT RELISTING WOLVES AS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES, PROVIDING THEM THE PROTECTION, FOOD AND RESPECT THEY DESERVE.THEY HAVE BEEN MEN´S FRIENDS AS SO MANY MOVIES AND BOOKS PORTRAY THAT LOYAL RELATIONSHIP. I CANNOT HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR A STATE OR FOR ANYONE WHO SLAUGHTERS WOLVES. I WOULD NEVER PAY A VISIT TO A U.S. STATE WHOSE POPULATION HAS ALLOWED SUCH GENOCIDE. SUCH CRUEL PRACTICES AGAINST WOLVES, MAN´S FRIENDS, HAVE TO BE STOPPED RIGHT AWAY. WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE SUFFERING, NO MORE UNNECESSARY PAIN. I CAN FEEL THEIR AGONY, FEAR AND HELPLESSNESS FROM WHERE THEY ARE, AND IT IS HEARTBREAKING. I LOVE WOLVES AS IF THEY WERE PART OF MY FAMILY. SOMETHING IN MY GENES MAKES ME SEE THEM AS FRIENDS WHO HELPED ME IN THE PAST. FOR SURE, I FEEL REALLY STRONG, AFFECTIVE BONDS WITH WOLVES.

GOD´S WORDS TO MOSES “I AM THE PATH, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE” AIM TO WARN US OVER ALL THE LIES WE WILL BE HEARING ALONG THE WAY DOWN HERE. THROUGHOUT HISTORY “MOST ACCOUNTS OF SIOUX-PAWNEE RELATIONS SEE THE PAWNEES AS VICTIMS OF THE MORE POWERFUL SIOUX” (DANCES WITH WOLVES. WIKIPEDIA, THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA ). HOWEVER, KEVIN COSTNER IN DANCES WITH WOLVES UNLOCKS THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LIES PORTRAYING THE SIOUX AS WHAT THEY  WERE REALLY, THAT IS, AMAZING, LOVING, LOYAL HUMAN BEINGS, WHO LOVED TO LAUGH, AND SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE A FRIEND, WHEREAS THE PAWNEES ARE PORTRAYED AS WHAT THEY WERE, CRUEL AND INSENSITIVE ONES. DANCES WITH WOLVES WAS DIRECTED, PRODUCED BY AND STARRING KEVIN COSTNER. IT TOOK MR. COSTNER 5 YEARS TO MAKE THIS MASTERPIECE AND UNVEIL THE TRUE INNOCENT NATURE OF NATIVE AMERICANS CONFRONTED WITH THE VILLAIN NATURE OF WHITE PEOPLE IN GENERAL TERMS. THE KEY MESSAGE KEVIN COSTNER GETS US ACROSS IS THAT AMONG ALL THE WORLD PATHS THE BEST ONE IS THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING. WE HEAR IT WHEN CHIEF TEN BEARS TELLS LIEUTENANT JOHN J. DUNBAR THAT HE IS HAPPY JOHN DUNBAR HAS CHOSEN THE RIGHT TRACK OF THE HUMAN BEING. HOW MANY WESTERNS HAVE WE WATCHED THROUGHOUT OUR WHOLE LIFE WHERE NATIVE AMERICANS WERE PORTRAYED AS VICTIMS? JUST A FEW, RIGHT? ONCE AGAIN, HERE, IN DANCES WITH WOLVES KEVIN COSTNER SHOWS US WONDERFUL EXAMPLES OF HUMAN BEINGS, LIKE KICKING BIRD, WIND IN HIS HAIR ( WITH THE BEAUTIFUL, MEMORABLE LAST SCENE OF HIM TELLING JOHN DUNBAR REPEATEDLY: “YOU ARE MY FRIEND” ), STANDS WITH A FIST, BEAMING ( THE LITTLE BOY WHO IS SAVED BY JOHN DUNBAR), AND SO MANY MORE, THAT WE CANNOT HELP BUT LOVE ALL OF THEM, DREAM WITH THEM AND MISS THEM. NOWADAYS, IT IS HARD TO FIND INDIVIDUALS WHO REALLY CHOOSE THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING. THE ONES WHO CHOOSE IT ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES AS WOLVES ARE. SO PLEASE, IF YOU FIND ONE, PROTECT HIM, ADOPT HIM, LOVE HIM AS MUCH AS YOU WOULD LOVE YOURSELF. OUR WORLD NEEDS THIS ENDANGERED SPECIES FOR SURVIVAL REASONS. ONLY THE ONES CHOOSING THE PATH OF THE HUMAN BEING CAN PROVIDE OUR PLANET WITH THE HOLLISTIC BALANCE IT IS HUNGRY FOR.

FULLY UNACCEPTABLE !

 

WE HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT ZOOS WERE SAFE PLACES FOR ANIMALS, BECAUSE ACTUALLY, THEY HAVE BEEN SAFE LOCATIONS FOR ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS UNTIL RECENTLY. HOWEVER, NOWADAYS MOST ZOOS IN EUROPE ARE CARRYING OUT HORRIBLE MASSACRES AMID BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY ANIMALS. THESE ABOMINABLE PRACTICES ARE PERFORMED BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT THERE ARE SOME ANIMALS WHO ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN OTHERS. THEY CONSIDER SOME ANIMALS MORE VALUABLE THAN OTHERS BECAUSE OF THE RARE, DIFFERENT GENES THEY POSSESS.

WE, CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, CONSIDER ALL GIRAFFES, LIONS, BEARS, TIGERS, ZEBRAS, ETC. VALUABLE. WE, LIKE ALL OUR ANCESTORS, LIKE THE GREEKS, WHO WERE GREAT INTELLECTUALS, DO NOT CARRY OUT SUCH SEGREGATIONS AMONG ANIMALS.

FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS ANIMALS THEMSELVES HAVE ENSURED HEALTHY POPULATIONS. ANIMALS HAVE DONE WITHOUT GENETIC PROGRAMS, AND REALITY SHOWS HOW THE DIFFERENT SPECIES HAVE SURVIVED THROUGHOUT SO MUCH TIME.

MARIUS, AN EIGHTEEN-MONTH-OLD GIRAFFE, WAS ONE UNFORTUNATE ANIMAL AMONG THE VERY MANY, WHO WAS EXECUTED ON FEBRUARY 9TH, 2014 FOR NO REASON. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE ORDERED TO KILL HIM SAY THEY KILLED MARIUS BECAUSE THEY DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE, AND BECAUSE MARIUS’S GENES WERE ALREADY WELL REPRESENTED. 

FIRST OF ALL, IF IT HAD BEEN A MATTER OF SPACE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOLVED IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE THERE WERE OFFERS BY ZOOS AND BILLIONAIRES TO TAKE MARIUS INTO THEIR MANSIONS AND LIVE HAPPILY, BUT THE ZOO DIRECTOR REJECTED THE OFFERS AND PREFERRED KILLING MARIUS  TO SAVING HIS LIFE. THE FOLLOWING QUOTES FROM SKY NEWS UK ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 ILLUSTRATE WHAT IT HAS JUST BEEN POINTED OUT:

THE EXPRESSEN DAILY REPORTED THAT A SWEDISH ZOO,WHICH IS NOT EAZA-AFFILIATED, TRIED TO GET MARIUS TRANSFERRED THERE”.

“A DANISH PROMOTER LIVING IN LOS ANGELES WAS QUOTED AS SAYING HE HAD FOUND A BUYER FOR HIM”.THE PROMOTER´S NAME WAS CLAUS HJELMBAK AND TOLD THE EKSTRABLADET NEWSPAPER  (DANISH ONE ) WHAT COMES NEXT:

– “ THEY TURNED DOWN ADOPTION OFFERS FROM OTHER ZOOS, AS WELL AS A BID OF 500,000 EUROS, OR $ 682,000 FROM AN INDIVIDUAL, WHO WAS WILLING TO TAKE MARIUS IN “.

– “ ONE OF MY CLOSE FRIENDS, A BILLIONAIRE, SAID THAT HE WANTED TO TRANSFER A FEW MILLION SO WE COULD SAVE THE GIRAFFE “.

– “ HE COULD EASILY HAVE LIVED IN HIS GARDEN IN BEVERLY HILLS, BUT THE ZOO DIRECTOR WAS NOT INTERESTED IN A SALE. I´M ANGRY “.

THE QUOTES BELOW ARE FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 :

– “ SCIENTIFIC DIRECTOR BENGT HOLST SAID COPENHAGEN ZOO TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK IN BRITAIN, WHICH IS A MEMBER OF EAZA, BECAUSE MARIUS´S OLDER BROTHER LIVES THERE, AND THE PARK´S SPACE COULD BE BETTER USED BY A “ GENETICALLY MORE VALUABLE GIRAFFE “ ” .

– “ YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK SAID IT CALLED COPENHAGEN ZOO ON SATURDAY WITH A LAST-MINUTE OFFER TO HOUSE MARIUS IN A NEW GIRAFFE HOUSE WITH ROOM FOR AN EXTRA MALE “.

– “ COPENHAGEN ZOO ALSO TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM A ZOO IN NORTHERN SWEDEN, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT AN EAZA MEMBER AND DID NOT WANT TO COMPLY WITH THE SAME HIGH STANDARDS, HOLST SAID”.

AS TO GENETIC PROGRAMS APPLIED TO ANIMALS WE CAN AFFIRM THAT ANIMALS DO NOT NEED TO BE KILLED BECAUSE THEIR GENES ARE NOT INTERESTING, THEY ARE OLD OR BECAUSE ZOOS DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE. WE ALL KNOW THESE ARE JUST EXCUSES.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO FAKE THEIR LOVE FOR THE JOB THEY HAVE. THEY FAKE IT SPECIALLY WHEN THEY DISPLAY CARING WORDS VERBALLY. NEVERTHELESS, WHEN IT COMES TO PRACTISING WHAT THEY PREACH, CONTRADICTIONS HELP US FIGURE THEM OUT. UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH MARIUS. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF HIM UNTIL THE VERY LAST MINUTE OF HIS LIFE WERE THE ONES THAT EXECUTED HIM.

THE MAN WHO SHOT MARIUS RIGHT IN THE BRAIN WAS PROBABLY SCARED TO LOSE HIS JOB AND THAT IS WHY HE OBEYED ORDERS TO KILL THIS YOUNG GIRAFFE. HIS FACE SHOWED CONFUSION. THE PEOPLE AND THE CHILDREN THERE WERE APPALLED AT THE KILLING. NOONE EXPECTS TO HAVE TO SEE AN EXECUTION OF A HEALTHY ANIMAL IN A ZOO. THE ZOO STAFF TOGETHER WITH THE ZOO SPOKESMAN TOBIAS STENBAEK BRO WERE PROBABLY ALSO AFRAID TO BE FIRED SO THEY DID WHAT THEY WERE ORDERED TO, THAT IS, SLAUGHTER A LIVELY GIRAFFE IN FRONT OF A CROWD.

THE REASON WHY THE EXECUTION OF MARIUS WAS CARRIED OUT IN FRONT OF A CROWD WAS BECAUSE THEY WANTED ALL OF US TO THINK IT WAS ALL NORMAL. THEY WANTED TO JUSTIFY IT SOMEHOW. THEY KNEW SOONER THAN LATER THESE EXECUTIONS WOULD HIT THE MEDIA. CONSEQUENTLY, THEIR MANOEUVRE WAS TO GET AHEAD OF THE MEDIA TO MAKE IT SEEM RIGHT. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT WE ALL KNOW THAT IS A CRUEL MANOEUVRE, WHICH GOES AGAINST LIFE GOOD PRACTICES. GOD HIMSELF ASKED NOAH TO SAVE A PAIR OF EACH SPECIES IN HIS ARK, MAKING IT CLEAR FOR US THAT ANIMALS ARE SACRED.

THESE QUOTES DOWN HERE ARE FROM THE MIRROR ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014:

– “ A FURIOUS BRITISH ANIMAL LOVER TWEETED TO COPENHAGEN ZOO. “SHAME ON YOU, AND FOR GIVING CHILDREN FRONT-ROW SEATS AT THE AUTOPSY ” “.

– “ ANOTHER CALLED FOR A BOYCOTT OF THE ZOO, ADDING: “ NOT ONLY DID THEY PUT DOWN A HEALTHY ANIMAL,THEY TURN IT INTO A SPECTACLE? CONFUSED””.

LOTS OF CRITICISM FROM THE ANIMAL PROTECTION GROUPS HAS BEEN HEARD. SOME OF THESE GROUPS ARE: DENMARK´S ORGANISATION AGAINST THE SUFFERING OF ANIMALS, ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN AND BRITISH-BASED CAPTIVE ANIMALS PROTECTION SOCIETY. ALL OF THESE “ CAME OUT TO SAVE MARIUS FROM “ DEATH ROW ”  IN FEBRUARY ” (THE INDEPENDENT, TUESDAY 25 MARCH 2014 ).

“ MORE THAN 33,000 PEOPLE SIGNED VARIOUS “ SAVE MARIUS ”  PETITIONS “(THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD FEBRUARY 10 2014 ), YET NEITHER THE SIGNATURES NOR THE VARIOUS ADOPTION OFFERS MANAGED TO KEEP MARIUS ALIVE.

“ THE ZOO SAID IT HAD NO CHOICE OTHER THAN TO PREVENT THE ANIMAL FROM ATTAINING ADULTHOOD, STATING THE CASTRATION WAS CONSIDERED CRUEL WITH “ UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS ”  AND THERE WAS NO PROGRAM TO RELEASE GIRAFFES INTO THE WILD ” .

IN THIS QUOTE THE ZOO IS GIVING US ONE MORE EXCUSE MAKING US BELIEVE THAT ADULTHOOD IS NOT GOOD, WHEREAS ADULTHOOD IS SYNONYMOUS WITH RICHNESS AND EXPERIENCE. SAD BUT TRUE: THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LIKE THEIR PETS ONLY WHILE THEY ARE BABIES. THEY STOP FANCYING THEM ONCE THEY GROW UP. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT NEEDS TO BE TACKLED RIGHT AT PRIMARY SCHOOL AND AT HOME FROM AN EARLY AGE TO PREVENT LIFE BAD PRACTICES. THIS IS AN ERRONEOUS WORLWIDE ASSUMPTION. ELDERLY PEOPLE AS WELL AS OLD ANIMALS ARE NOT VALUED AS THEY SHOULD BE. THEY ARE THE GENERATION THAT HAS WORKED REALLLY HARD, AND THEY ARE A TREASURE OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE TO VALUE AND, WE NEED TO OPEN UP HUMBLY TO THEM TO NOURISH OUR BRAINS. PRIMARY EDUCATION SHOULD START URGENTLY TO TALK ABOUT THE RELEVANCE OF ELDERLY PEOPLE AND OLD ANIMALS TO STOP THIS RECURRING MISCONCEPTION THAT AFFECTS HUMAN BEINGS AND ALL ANIMALS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. ONCE TEACHERS AND PARENTS GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY, NECESSARY, NEW CHANGES WILL START TAKING PLACE. ONE OF THESE BIG CHANGES WILL BE THAT NEITHER THE ELDERLY NOR PETS WILL BE ABANDONED, JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE OLD.

“ ONE GROUP, ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN, URGED PEOPLE TO STOP VISITING ZOOS AS A PROTEST, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTED. THE ORGANIZATION SAID IN A STATEMENT WHAT FOLLOWS:

IT IS NO SECRET THAT ANIMALS ARE KILLED WHEN THERE IS NO LONGER SPACE, OR IF THE ANIMALS DO NOT HAVE GENES THAT ARE INTERESTING ENOUGH” “(THE NEW YORK TIMES ) .

THE FOLLOWING QUOTE IS FROM SKY NEWS UK ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014. SPOKESMAN STENBACK BRO SAID THIS: “ I¨M ACTUALLY PROUD BECAUSE I THINK WE HAVE GIVEN CHILDREN A HUGE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ANATOMY OF A GIRAFFE THAT THEY WOULDN´T HAVE HAD FROM WATCHING A GIRAFFE IN A PHOTO ” .

OBVIOUSLY ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN IS TOTALLY RIGHT WHEN THEY URGE US TO QUIT VISITING ZOOS. EVERY YEAR 5,000 ANIMALS ARE EXECUTED IN ZOOS. THIS FIGURE SHOULD MAKE US ALL STOP FOR A MINUTE AND ASK OURSELVES WHY A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY SOCIETY ALLOWS PREDATORS CARRY OUT SUCH EXECUTIONS.

LOOKING AT THE PHOTOS OF THE LIONS IN THE ZOO, RIGHT AFTER MARIUS WAS EXECUTED, WE REALIZE THE LIONS WERE DISAPPOINTED. MARIUS WAS SOCIABLE AND GOT ON WITH ALL ANIMALS IN THE ZOO. THAT IS WHY AFTER THE LIONS WERE DISAPPOINTED WITH THE KILLING, THE LIONS GOT REALLY ANGRY AT THE STAFF. THE SLAUGHTER BLEW THEIR TOP AND THE LIONS GOT SO FURIOUS THAT THE ZOO MANAGER DECIDED TO KILL THEM. THERE WAS NO REASON ONCE AGAIN TO EXECUTE BEAUTIFUL LION CUBS AND A PAIR OF LIONS. OUR FRIENDS, OUR ANIMALS DO NOT DESERVE TO BE EXECUTED JUST BECAUSE THE DANISH GOVERNMENT SPENDS TOO MUCH ON PERKS AND  FAR TOO EXPENSIVE CARS, AND BECAUSE THEY DO NOT GIVE DANISH ZOOS ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY THE AMOUNT OF FOOD ALL THE ANIMALS NEED TO BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY.

THE QUOTES DOWN BELOW ARE FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 :

” HOWEVER, THE ORGANIZATION ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN SAID THE CASE HIGHLIGHTS WHAT IT BELIEVES ZOOS DO TO ANIMALS REGULARLY”.

“ WHEN THE CUTE ANIMAL BABIES THAT ATTRACT VISITORS GROW UP, THEY ARE NOT AS INTERESTING ANY MORE” IT SAID”.

ELISA ALLEN, SPOKESWOMAN FOR PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS IN BRITAIN, SAID MARIUS´S CASE SHOULD SERVE AS A WAKE-UP CALL FOR EVERYONE WHO “STILL HARBOURS THE ILLUSION THAT ZOOS SERVE ANY PURPOSE BEYOND INCARCERATING INTELLIGENT ANIMALS FOR PROFIT ” ” . SHE SAID IN A STATEMENT:

“GIRAFFES RARELY DIE OF OLD AGE IN CAPTIVITY, AND HAD MARIUS NOT BEEN EUTHANISED TODAY, HE WOULD HAVE LIVED OUT HIS SHORT LIFE AS A LIVING EXHIBIT, STRANDED IN A COLD CLIMATE, THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY FROM HIS TRUE HOME ” .

THIS LAST QUOTE IS FROM THE INDEPENDENT ON MARCH 25TH, 2014:

“COPENHAGEN ZOO THAT KILLED MARIUS THE GIRAFFE KILLS ONCE AGAIN FOUR HEALTHY LIONS, A PAIR OF ADULT LIONS AND TWO CUBS ONE MONTH AFTER SHOOTING MARIUS IN THE HEAD ” .

HAVING REACHED THIS POINT WE ALL AGREE WITH ELISA ALLEN, SPOKESWOMAN FOR PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS IN BRITAIN, WHEN SHE SAYS THAT ZOOS ONLY SERVE TO INCARCERATE INTELLIGENT ANIMALS FOR PROFIT. LET US ADD THAT THE DANISH GOVERNMENT SHOULD STOP THESE BAD PRACTICES PERFORMED IN ZOOS, BUT STARTING TODAY ONWARDS, AND MAKE IT CLEAR TO ZOOS THAT MONEY WILL BE GRANTED TO ZOOS ON CONDITION NOT ONE SINGLE ANIMAL IS EXECUTED AGAIN, AND THAT ALL ANIMALS, NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY ARE, ARE TAKEN CARE TO THE VERY LAST DAY OF THEIR LIVES. THIS GOES WITHOUT SAYING BUT, THIS ZOO POLICY SHOULD BE ON PAPER, SO THAT ALL ZOO ANIMALS LIVES ARE PROTECTED.

OUR WORLD, OUR SOCIETY, WE OURSELVES, NEED PEOPLE WITH ETHICAL PRINCIPLES. ENTREPRENEURS WILL ONLY KNOW WHICH CANDIDATES POSSESS THESE VIRTUES, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, IF THEY LOOK INTO EACH INDIVIDUAL´S LIFE, NOT JUST BY SOPHISTICATED TESTS. NOWADAYS, THERE ARE NOT TWO WAYS ABOUT IT. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO TRY TO FOOL ANYONE JUST FOR THE MONEY THAT THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT LYING IN AN INTERVIEW, AND SAY THEY LOVE ANIMALS, WHEN THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS OUR MAMMAL COMPANIONS DO NOT MEAN A THING TO THEM. THAT IS THE CASE OF MARIUS, THE CUBS AND THE LIONS. THE AUTHORITIES WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO SAVE THEM KILLED THEM.THEY TRIED TO TAKE US TO THE CLEANER´S  MAKING US BUY THIS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME. THEY IGNORED WE RESPECT YOUNG AND OLD, WITH SPECIAL CARE FOR THE OLD ONES, AND THAT THE NAME OF THE GAME IS “ RESPECT ALL MAMMALS ” .ONLY INDIVIDUALS DRIVEN BY MORAL GUIDELINES, NOT WILLING TO ACCEPT ANY BRIBES WHATSOEVER, WILL HELP COMPANIES GROW, WILL SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE REST, AND THEREFORE REFURBISH THE WORLD IN THE LONG RUN.

EVERYDAY WE ARE BEING MANIPULATED BY ADS TELLING US THAT WE SHOULD KEEP YOUNG, MAKING US BELIEVE OLD PEOPLE DO NOT COUNT. THESE SCAM TECHNIQUES TO SELL US A SPECIFIC PRODUCT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TRUTH. WE ALL HAVE TO MUSTER THE COURAGE TO DEFEND LIFE BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. LET US SHOOT FOR VALUING OLD PEOPLE, OLD ANIMALS, OLD BUILDINGS, AND OLD SAYINGS, AMONG MANY OTHERS. BY CARING FOR OLD PEOPLE AND ANIMALS RIGHT FROM AN EARLY AGE BOTH AT SCHOOL AND AT HOME WE WILL BE HAVING THE BEST EDUCATION AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO AVOID EXECUTIONS LIKE MARIUS´S, AND THE LIONS´ FROM HAPPENING AGAIN.

NONE OF US CAN HAVE RESPECT FOR THE DANISH GOVERNMENT OR FOR ANY OF THE EAZA ZOOS THAT EXECUTE ANIMALS. WE DO NOT WANT SCIENTISTS FOR THIS, WE DO NOT WANT GENETIC RESEARCH FOR THIS AND WE DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT ANY ZOOS CARRYING OUT EXECUTIONS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

TODAY IT IS KEY TO GET TO KNOW EACH INDIVIDUAL WHO WANTS TO WORK IN THE SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRY. GOVERNMENTS AND ENTREPRENEURS NEED TO FEEL THE URGE TO REQUIRE A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF EACH PERSON WHO WANTS TO ENTER THIS INDUSTRY. THIS IMPLIES TO REALLY KNOW WHAT EACH ONE IS LIKE, BY OTHER MEANS OTHER THAN TESTS, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A FIASCO, BECAUSE THE PERSON´S ANSWERS COULD BE FAR FROM TRUE. IF COMPANIES CONTINUE USING THE SAME KIND OF SELECTIVE STRATEGIES THEY WILL NOT BE HIRING THE RIGHT KIND OF PEOPLE. IF THAT IS THE CASE, THEY WILL HIRE SCIENTISTS WITH NO VALUES, AND THEREFORE WE WILL BE ALL IN DANGER SOMEHOW. A RECOMMENDED 2014 FILM THAT EXEMPLIFIES THIS HUGE DANGER IS THE MAZE RUNNER BY WES BALL.

I AM A MAMMAL, YOU ARE ANOTHER ONE, WE ARE ALL MAMMALS WITH DIFFERENT SKILLS, TRYING TO LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER IN HOPES OF PRESERVING WHAT IS SACRED: L I F E. I FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES WHEN I LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF MARIUS´S, THE CUBS´ AND THE LIONS´ EYES. LET US JOIN ALTOGETHER FROM EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD AND PULL OUR WEIGHT TO OPENLY SHOW OUR DISCONTENT WITH THE KILLINGS OF MARIUS AND THE LIONS, BEING WILLING TO SETTLE THIS ISSUE AND FIGHT SCIENTISTS AND GOVERNMENTS, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER, IF ANOTHER EXECUTION IN ANY OTHER ZOO OCCURS.

COMPASSION, YES, COMPASSION !! WHERE HAS IT GONE ?

THERE ARE SOME NEWS WE READ AND KEEP COMING BACK TO OUR MINDS TIME AND TIME AGAIN. HERE IS ONE THAT LIVES WITHIN ME DAY IN AND DAY OUT. I READ ABOUT IT ONLINE IN FEBRUARY THIS YEAR, AND THE HEADLINE SAID “ WILD DOGS TAKING CONTROL OF THE STREETS IN DETROIT “. THE ARTICLE SAID THAT THE DOGS WERE USING SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES TO GET FOOD OUT OF DUSTBINS.

AFTER READING THE WHOLE ARTICLE I FELT REALLY BAD FOR THOSE DOGS IN DETROIT, BECAUSE MOST DOGS THAT TRY DUSTBINS INSTEAD OF OPENED, GREEN AREAS TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT IT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN ABANDONED BY THEIR OWNERS, AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIND FOOD. THESE DOGS HAVE KNOWN WHAT IS LIKE TO BE FED BY THIER OWNERS, HAVE BEEN SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE, AND THAT IS WHY THEY HANG AROUND CITIES, INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR A PREY IN THE COUNTRYSIDE, LIKE WILD DOGS DO. THESE DOGS LONG FOR THEIR OWNERS  WHO PROVIDED THEM WITH EVERYTHING THEY NEEDED, WHILE THEY WERE THEIR FRIENDS OR SO THEY SEEMED UNTIL THEY DECIDED TO GET RID OF THEM, SINCE MOST OF THESE DOGS THINK THEY HAVE GOT LOST, AND DO NOT KNOW THEY HAVE BEEN BETRAYEDCERTAINLY, THESE DOGS ARE NOT WILD THOUGH THEY MAY LOOK LIKE IT, SLEEPING GOD KNOWS WHERE, EATING GARBAGE FOOD OR NOTHING AT ALL.  THESE ABANDONED CREATURES CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED. IT IS BEYOND THEIR UNDERSTANDING, AND THAT TOGETHER WITH A LACK OF FOOD MAKES THEM GET TOGETHER WITH OTHER DOGS , TO FEEL STRONGER.

THEREFORE, DOGS LEFT ALONE AROUND CITIES ARE WHATEVER YOU CAN NAME BUT WILD. THE ONLY WILD TRACE IN THEM IS THE ONE OF THEIR WILD ANCESTORS, GRAY WOLVES..

“ DOMESTIC DOGS ARE DESCENDED FROM GRAY WOLVES, WHO HAVE BEEN PACK HUNTERS WITH COMPLEX LANGUAGE.THESE SOPHISTICATED FORMS OF SOCIAL COGNITION AND COMMUNICATION MAY ACCOUNT FOR THEIR TRAINABILITY, PLAYFULNESS, AND ABILITY TO FIT INTO HUMAN HOUSEHOLDS AND SOCIAL SITUATIONS, AND THESE ATTRIBUTES HAVE GIVEN DOGS A RELATIONSHIP WITH HUMANS THAT HAS ENABLED THEM TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL SPECIES ON THE PLANET TODAY. “ 

UNFORTUNATELY, THESE DOGS’ OWNERS FROM DETROIT DID THE WORST THING THEY COULD DO, THAT IS, BETRAYING THEIR BEST FRIENDS. DOES ANYBODY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ANY OF THOSE DOGS WANDERING AROUNG THE DUSTBINS IN DETROIT? DID ANYBODY SHOW ANY COMPASSION HELPING ANY OF THESE ? THESE DOGS FROM DETROIT JUST WANT WHAT YOU AND I WANT. IT IS SO SIMPLE AND SAD AT THE SAME TIME, THAT IT IS HEARTBREAKING THINKING THAT THESE INNOCENT VICTIMS OF CRUEL OWNERS ARE REGARDED AS A PROBLEM TO SOCIETY. THESE DOGS ARE NOT A PROBLEM. ON THE OTHER HAND, THEIR OWNERS, AND PEOPLE ABANDONING THEIR PETS, ARE A BIG TROUBLE FOR THE WORLD, BECAUSE OF ALL THE PAIN THEY CAUSE, NOT ONLY TO THEIR PETS, BUT ALSO TO THE PEOPLE WHO GET CONCERNED ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING, AND HELPING OTHERS DO THE BEST THING FOR ALL OF US. THESE IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE WHO ABANDON THEIR PETS DO NOT HELP CREATE A BETTER WORLD. EVERY LITTLE ACTION IN THIS WORLD HAS SUCH BIG DIMENSIONS EVERYWHERE , TAKING INTO ACCOUNT ALL THE CONNECTIONS WE ALL HAVE WITH ALL THE UNIVERSE , THAT EVEN SMALL ACTIONS HAVE A BIG IMPACT ON ALL OF US.

YOU KNOW THE SAYING “ DESPERATE SOLUTIONS FOR DESPERATE SITUATIONS “. WELL THEN, PUTTING OURSELVES IN THESE STREET DOGS´ SHOES, LIKE REGRETFULLY MANY OTHER DOGS WORLDWIDE ARE AT THIS VERY MOMENT, IT IS NO WONDER THEY BEHAVE DESPERATELY, SINCE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES ARE DESPERATE.

THERE IS NO DOUBT DOGS PROVIDE US WITH EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, ONCE WE HAVE DONE THE TRAINING REQUIRED TO TRANSFORM ANY DOG INTO A PET .

BONDING BETWEEN HUMANS AND DOGS OCCURRED BETWEEN 19.OOO AND 30,000 YEARS AGO, LIKELY IN THE CONTEXT OF HUNTING. “

” A 2004 STUDY SHOWS THE BENEFITS OF COOPERATIVE HUNTING WAS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN WOLF DOMESTICATION. “

” THE COHABITATION OF DOGS AND HUMANS WOULD HAVE GREATLY IMPROVED THE CHANCES OF SURVIVAL FOR EARLY HUMAN GROUPS, AND THE DOMESTICATION OF DOGS MAY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE KEY FORCES THAT LED TO HUMAN SUCCESS . “

“THE LATEST STUDY MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI ) TO HUMANS AND DOGS TOGETHER PROVED THAT DOGS HAVE SAME RESPONSE OF VOICES, AND USE THE SAME PARTS OF THE BRAIN AS HUMANS, AND MADE DOGS UNDERSTAND EMOTIONAL HUMAN VOICES, MAKING DOGS SUCH FRIENDLY SOCIAL PETS TO HUMANS.”

MORAL EDUCATION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SCHOOL SUBJECT, LIFE SUBJECT EVER TO BE TAUGHT AND LEARNT. SOME HAVE NEVER LEARNT IT ALTHOUGH IT WAS TAUGHT TO THEM AT SCHOOL. OTHERS LEARNT IT AND THANKS TO THEM SOME GOOD THINGS STILL COME UP, AS A RESPONSE TO INJUSTICES. NOWADAYS, MORAL EDUCATION IS NOT TAUGHT ANYWHERE, NEITHER AT SCHOOL NOR AT HOME. WE ARE LEFT STRANDED IN A WILD JUNGLE, WHERE EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT, AND EVERY BEHAVIOUR OR ACTION IS IDENTIFIED AS ADEQUATE. ONLY THOSE PEOPLE WITH MORAL EDUCATION WILL BE KNOWLEDGEABLE ENOUGH TO KNOW WHETHER THAT ACTION, BEHAVIOUR OR OPINION IS RIGHT OR NOT, AND IT WILL MAKE THEM REACH THIS HIGHER LEVEL WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CALLED COMPASSION.

IN THE CASE OF OUR CURIOUS, PLAYFUL AND SOCIAL CREATURES THAT REPRESENTED FAITHFULNESS IN CHRISTIANITY, DOGS, WE ALL HAVE A MORAL DUTY TO REPORT WHENEVER WE SEE ANY DOGS BEING LEFT ALONE TO THEIR FATE, AND HELP THEM GET FOOD AND A HOME. IN THE LONG RUN, DOGS WILL TEACH US IMPORTANT LESSONS AND WE WILL HAVE FUN. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, THE PROS WILL OUTWEIGHT THE CONS. SAY YOU WANT GOOD COMPANY. ONE SURE WAY TO GET IT RIGHT ON IS GOING TO ONE OF THE MANY SHELTERS OUT THERE AND ADOPT A DOG, FOR EXAMPLE, INSTEAD OF PURCHASING IT.

“EVERY YEAR BETWEEN 6 AND 8 MILLION DOGS AND CATS ENTER US ANIMAL SHELTERS. THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES ( HSUS ) ESTIMATES THAT APPROXIMATELY 3 TO 4 MILLION OF THOSE DOGS AND CATS ARE EUTHANIZED YEARLY IN THE UNITED STATES . “

“ A STUDY FOUND A THIRD OF DOGS SUFFERED ANXIETY WHEN SEPARATED FROM OTHERS . “

DOGS NEED SOCIETIES FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS THAT MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT EUTHANIZED, AND THAT PROMOTE ADOPTING THEM FROM SHELTERS. LET’S STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND PUT STREET DOGS OUT OF THEIR MISERYLET’S LOOK AT THE ISSUE. LET’S NOT SWEEP IT UNDER THE CARPET. THE POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS TO CHANGE THE WORLD. LET’S ALLOW DOGS BE PART OF US, GIVING THEM A HAND WHENEVER WE SEE ONE OR A GROUP OF THEM ABANDONED. THEY HAVE ALWAYS PLAYED AN ACTIVE ROLE IN OUR LIVES, HELPING US OUT IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS THAT ADOPTING ONE OF THEM WOULD BE THE ONLY RIGHT THING TO DO. LET’S KEEP OUR DOGS AS PETS WITH US ALL THE TIME GOD BLESSES THESE CREATURES TO LIVE WITH US. DOING IT SO WILL ONLY MAKE YOU A HAPPIER AND BETTER PERSON. ISN’T THAT SOMETHING?

HOW DARE YOU REMOVE OUR TUSKS !!!!

 

 

IF ELEPHANTS COULD SPEAK THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WOULD TELL US. THEY WOULD EXPLAIN US THAT THEY NEED THEIR TUSKS TO CARRY OUT EVERYDAY ACTIONS LIKE EATING TREE BARK, AND THAT IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO EAT IT THEY HAVE TO PEEL THE BARK OFF WITH THE HELP OF THEIR TUSKS. THEREFORE, ELEPHANTS’ TUSKS ARE KEY TO THESE MAMMALS AND SHOULD BE RESPECTED BY EVERYONE.

THESE CHARISMATIC ANIMALS THAT INVITE YOU TO CHILL OUT JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM “  HAVE A FISSION-FUSION SOCIETY IN WHICH MULTIPLE FAMILY GROUPS COME TOGETHER TO SOCIALIZE ” .

” DEFINITELY , THEIR INTELLIGENCE HAS BEEN COMPARED WITH THAT OF PRIMATES AND CETACEANS, AND  THEY APPEAR TO HAVE SELF-AWARENESS AND SHOW EMPATHY FOR DYING AND DEAD INDIVIDUALS OF THEIR KIND  “.

ACCORDING TO SCIENTIFIC STUDIES, ELEPHANTS APPEAR TO FEEL EMOTION SINCE THEY BECOME INTERESTED IN ANY DEAD ELEPHANTS THEY FIND ANYWHERE. THEY ALSO HAVE GOT AN OUTSTANDING MEMORY. 

REGARDLESS HOW HIGHLY RECOGNIZED THEY ARE IN POPULAR CULTURE AND ART ALL OVER THE WORLD, AND DESPITE THE FACT THEY ARE AN ENDANGERED AND VULNERABLE SPECIES, COUNTRIES SUCH AS BOTSWANA, NAMIBIA, ZIMBABWE, MALAWI AND SOUTH AFRICA ALLOW RESTRICTED TRADE. IN THESE FIVE COUNTRIES AND IN OTHERS LIKE CAMEROON, GABON, MOZAMBIQUE, TANZANIA AND ZAMBIA, AUTHORITIES THERE ALLOW SPORT HUNTING AND  “ EXPORT QUOTAS FOR ELEPHANT TROPHIES  “. IN 2012, INDIA CARRIED OUT “ ONE OF THE WORST CONCENTRATED KILLINGS”  OF ELEPHANTS FOR THEIR IVORY. 

ALL RIGHT, HAVING REACHED THIS POINT, LET US ALL CALL A SPADE A SPADE, AND CLARIFY FIRST THAT ALLOWING IVORY RESTRICTED TRADE IS AS UNACCEPTABLE AS STATING THEY ALLOW UNRESTRICTED IVORY TRADEIN ADDITION TO THIS, WHO ON EARTH WOULD WANT TO TRAVEL TO THOSE AFRICAN COUNTRIES, WHERE SUCH HORRIFYING PRACTICES TAKE PLACE? NOT ME, FOR SURE!. HONOR TO GOD, I WOULD TURN DOWN ANY FREE LUXURY TRIPS TO ANY OF THOSE IVORY TRADE AFRICAN COUNTRIES. I WOULD NOT ENJOY MY STAY OVER THERE WHATSOEVER, JUST THINKING OF THE FACT THAT SUCH BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL ANIMALS ARE BEING KILLED BY SELFISH AUTHORITIES.

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THAT ELEPHANTS ARE SUCH BEAUTIFUL MONUMENTS IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO LET EVERYONE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT TUSKS ARE FOR THEM, SO HERE GOES THE FOLLOWING.

MUCH OF THE INCISOR ( TUSK ) CAN BE SEEN EXTERNALLY, WHILE THE REST IS FASTENED TO A SOCKET IN A SKULL. AT LEAST ONE-THIRD OF THE TUSK CONTAINS THE PULP AND SOME HAVE NERVES STRETCHING TO THE TIP. THUS, IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE IT WITHOUT HARMING THE ANIMAL. WHEN REMOVED, IVORY BEGINS TO DRY UP AND CRACK IF NOT KEPT COOL AND MOIST “.

” TUSKS SERVE MULTIPLE PURPOSES. THEY ARE USED FOR DIGGING FOR WATER, SALT AND ROOTS; DEBARKING OR MARKING TREES; AND FOR MOVING TREES AND BRANCHES WHEN CLEANING A PATH ” .

” WHEN FIGHTING, THEY ARE USED TO ATTACK AND DEFEND, AND TO PROTECT THE TRUNK ” .

ELEPHANTS’ TRUNK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND VERSATILE APPENDAGE. IT CONTAINS UP TO 150, 000 SEPARATE MUSCLE FASCICLES, WITH NO BONE AND LITTLE FAT ” .

TRUNKS HAVE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS, INCLUDING BREATHING,  TOUCHING, GRASPING AND SOUND PRODUCTION ” .

” THE TRUNK’S ABILITY TO MAKE POWERFUL TWISTING AND COOLING MOVEMENTS ALLOW IT TO COLLECT FOOD, WRESTLE WITH CONSPECIFICS, AND LIFT UP TO 350 KG ( 770 LB ), AND SO LOSING THE TRUNK WOULD BE DETRIMENTAL TO AN ELEPHANT’S SURVIVAL”.

 HAVING SAID ALL THIS, WE CERTAINLY HAVE TO DO SOMETHING, WHATEVER IS WITHIN OUR REACH, TO STOP THE IVORY TRADE., THAT IS JEOPARDIISING ELEPHANTS’ EVERYDAY LIFE.  REMOVING THE IVORY, THAT IS, THEIR TUSKS IMPLIES THESE MAJESTIC BEINGS ARE BOUND TO A SLOW, PAINFUL DEATH, REGARDING THE STATE OF LACK OF PROTECTION THE TRUNK IS IN, WITHOUT THEIR LIFE COMPANION TUSK. THIS CRUEL IVORY TRADE IS KILLING ELEPHANTS, MAKING THEIR TRUNKS FLOPPY. THEY START SUFFERING FROM TRUNK PARALYSIS, CAUSED BY THE DEGRADATION OF NERVES AND MUSCLES, LEADING THEM TO A SURE END TO THEIR LIVES.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS IN LIFE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RESPECTED. WELL, ELEPHANTS’ TUSKS (  IVORY ) IS ONE OF THESE. WHEN WE SAY IVORY, TUSKS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THEIR TRUNKS, BECAUSE TRUNK AND TUSK ARE JOINED TOGETHER, AND REMOVING ANY OF THEM HARMS THE OTHER, PUTTING THEIR LIVES AT RISKELEPHANTS USE THEIR TRUNKS TO PUT ON SOME MUD ON THEIR SKIN AS A SUNSCREEN, TO PROTECT THEIR SKIN AGAINST INSECT BITES, TO BLOW DUST ONTO THEIR BODIES AS ANOTHER SKIN PROTECTION, TO SUCK UP WATER AND INHALE AIR.

ELEPHANTS ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE BIRDS AND INSECTS ARE RELEVANT TOO, AND EVERYONE OF THEM IS CONNECTED, AS WELL AS WE ARE CONNECTED TO THEMCERTAIN INSECTS ARE NECESSARY TO GET RID OF HARMFUL, UNNECESSARY ONES. BIRDS ARE LOVELY, DESIRABLE CREATURES, WELCOMED ANYTIME, ANYPLACE. BIRDS AND INSECTS NEED SEEDS TO SURVIVE, AND ELEPHANTS ARE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTORS TO THE DISPERSION OF THEM, BECAUSE THEY INGEST AND DEFECATE SEEDS, AND AS A RESULT OF IT, THEY DISPERSE MANY OF THEM ALL OVER THE PLACE.. THAT IS WHY , ELEPHANTS ARE CONSIDERED  TO BE KEYSTONE SPECIES DUE TO THEIR IMPACT IN THE ENVIRONMENTS ” . ANOTHER WELL –WORTH MENTIONING TRAIT ELEPHANTS HAVE IS THAT AS THEY ARE SO SOCIALLY ORGANIZED, WHEN THEY TRAVEL TO OTHER AREAS,  THEIR YOUNG ONES ( CALVES ) ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GROUP, IN ORDER TO BE PROTECTED.

APART FROM THE IVORY TRADE ANOTHER THREAT TO ELEPHANTS IS FOREST DESTRUCTION. THESE BIG MAMMALS NEED LARGE AREAS, AND AS THEY EAT CROPS IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO CREATE “ URBAN CORRIDORS “ ALLOWING ELEPHANTS HAVE THEIR OWN PATHS TO SPECIFIC FOREST AREAS. LET US ALL HAVE A LOT OF NERVE TO BE PERSISTENT ON PROTECTING ELEPHANTS. THEY ARE COMPLETELY DEFENSELESS WITHOUT US. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH DEATHS, BECAUSE EACH OF US HAS THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP THE POACHING OF ELEPHANTS FOR THEIR IVORY, AND PROTECT THEM. LET US NOT BE PREDATORY NOR GREEDY, AND LET US VALUE AND RESPECT THESE SOCIABLE, CARING ANIMALS.

POLITICIANS SHOULD BE RESERVING FORESTS FOR ELEPHANTS, SO THAT THESE IMPRESSIVE ANIMALS CAN GET IN RETURN WHAT THEY GAVE US BACK THEN,  PROTECTING US IN WARS, AND HELPING US AT WORK FOR CENTURIES IN THE PAST. PRESERVING THEIR NATURAL HABITATS WILL BE GOOD FOR ALL MANKIND AND ANIMAL LIFE IN THE LONG RUN, AND IT WILL IMPLY RESPECT FOR OTHER BEINGS IS RESPECTED.

SOS, IT IS US, DOLPHINS!!

WE ALL REMEMBER FLIPPER, THAT GREAT DOLPHIN WE ALL WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE AS OUR NEIGHBOUR, OR PET, RIGHT?. WELL, UNFORTUNATELY, THERE SEEMS TO BE PEOPLE THAT EITHER HAVE NEVER WATCHED FLIPPER, OR IGNORE THESE CREATURES ARE FAR TOO SMART AND HELPFUL TO BE KILLED.

THIS IS TAKING PLACE IN TAIJI (JAPAN), PERU AND IN THE FAROE ISLANDS,                 “    WHERE DOLPHINS ARE TRADITIONALLY CONSIDERED FOOD AND ARE KILLED IN HARPOON OR DRIVE HUNTS   ”. CERTAINLY, HUMANS ARE A THREAT FOR DOLPHINS. PEOPLE ARE DUMPING WASTE AT SEA, MAKING DOLPHINS SUFFER FROM INFECTIONS. THESE INFECTIONS UNABLE THEM TO SWIM, AND THEREFORE, THEY ARE BOUND TO DIE. BESIDES THIS HUMANS ALSO DUMP AGRICULTURAL AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE, HEAVY METALS AND PESTICIDES, AMONG OTHERS.

IN ADDTION TO THIS, “    DOLPHIN MEAT IS CONSUMED IN A SMALL NUMBER OF COUNTRIES WORLD-WIDE, WHICH INCLUDE JAPAN, THE FAROE ISLANDS AND PERU (WHERE IT IS REFERRED TO AS “CHANCHO MARINO” OR “SEA PORK” )    “. THIS IS TAKING PLACE IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT HEALTH TESTS HAVE SHOWN THAT DOLPHIN MEAT CONTAINS HIGH LEVELS OF MERCURY.

THESE VIOLENT ACTIONS AGAINST SUCH WONDERFUL MAMMALS SHOULD BE FORBIDDEN, IF WE, HUMAN BEINGS,  CONSIDER OURSELVES CIVIC AND COHERENT. HUMAN BEINGS, BEING CONSIDERED SO BRILLIANT AT REASONING SHOULD BE COHERENT AND PRESERVE SUCH IMPRESSIVE CREATURES.

MOST PEOPLE LOVE DOLPHINS. THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS TO REALLY LOVE THEM. ONE OF THE REASONS IS THEIR AMAZING LEAPS, ABOVE THE WATER SURFACE.  WE MUST SAY THAT THEIR LEAPS ARE NOT JUST FOR ENJOYMENT, BUT FOR OTHER INTERESTING REASONS SUCH AS  “DISLODGING PARASITES, NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION, SOCIAL DISPLAYS, ORIENTATION, SAVING ENERGY AND FOR FIGHTING    “. BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS ARE SO SOPHISTICATED THAT THEY HAVE THEIR OWN UNIQUE WHISTLE,  WHICH CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THE REST OF THE BOTTLENOSE ONES . CONSEQUENTLY, WE CAN SAY  BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS HAVE A STRONG MEMORY AS FOR THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF WHISTLES.

RESEARCH ON DOLPHINS HAS SHOWN    “    THEY HAVE HIGH INTELLIGENCE IN COMPARISON TO OTHER ANIMALS AND SHOULD BE SEEN AS NON-HUMAN PERSONS, WHO SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN SPECIFIC RIGHTS.  IT IS THEREFORE MORALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO KEEP THEM CAPTIVE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PURPOSES, OR TO KILL THEM, EITHER INTENTIONALLY FOR CONSUMPTION, OR UNINTENTIONALLY , AS BY CATCH”.

ACCORDING TO SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, DOLPHINS ARE SOCIAL AND LIVE IN SCHOOLS OF UP TO TWELVE OF THEM. THEY ESTABLISH STRONG SOCIAL BONDS, AND SO THEY OFTEN STAY WITH INJURED AND ILL INDIVIDUALS,  IN SOME CASES,  BRINGING THEM TO THE SURFACE SO THAT THEY CAN BREATHE. DOLPHINS HAVE PROVED TO BE REALLY BRILLIANT LIFEGUARDS IN MANY CASES,  BECAUSE “ THEY HAVE PROTECTED SWIMMERS FROM SHARKS, BY SWIMMING IN CIRCLES AROUND THE SWIMMERS, OR CHARGING THE SHARKS TO MAKE THEM GO AWAY ”.

WE ALL KNOW THE ANCIENT GREEKS WERE GREAT INTELLECTUALS, WHO WROTE MANY RELEVANT BOOKS.  WELL, THE ANCIENT GREEKS, AS WELL, WELCOMED DOLPHINS.  DOLPHINS APPEARED IN MANY ANCIENT GREEK COINS: IN MANY OF THESE COINS WE CAN SEE A BOY, A MAN, OR A DEITY RIDING ON THE BACK OF A DOLPHIN.

“ REPORTS OF COOPERATIVE HUMAN-DOLPHIN FISHING DATES BACK TO THE ANCIENT ROMANS.  NOWADAYS,  A HUMAN-DOLPHIN PARTNERSHIP OPERATES IN BRAZIL.  HERE, DOLPHINS DRIVE FISH TOWARDS FISHERMEN,   WAITING ALONG THE SHORE, AND SIGNAL THE MEN TO CAST THEIR NETS.  THE DOLPHIN´S REWARD IS THE FISH THAT ESCAPE THE NETS    “. FOR SURE, DOLPHINS HAVE HELPED US A LOT SO FAR. THEY HAVE EVEN PROVIDED A LOT OF HELP FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS, WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES.  DOLPHINS HAVE PROVED TO BE EQUALLY HELPFUL TREATING PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION,  AND TURNING IT INTO MODERATE.

EVERYONE OF US IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT IS GOING ON ,  IF WE TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE FACT THAT SOME COUNTRIES, LIKE JAPAN, PERU AND THE FAROE ISLANDS ARE KILLING DOLPHINS FOR FOOD. CULTURAL, HISTORICAL AND ECONOMIC REASONS ARE NOTHING BUT CHEAP EXCUSES TO KILL THESE HEROIC BEINGS.  THESE TERRIBLE ACTIONS AGAINST DOLPHINS BY JAPANESE, FAROEN AND PERUAN PEOPLE DEPICT THEMSELVES. THIS IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE ,  AND SO WE SHOULD NOT GIVE ANY CREDIT TO PEOPLE WHO CARRY OUT SUCH DOLPHIN VANDALISM.

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL OF US TO DO SOMETHING GOOD.  IT IS FAIR TO DEFEND DOLPHINS,  SINCE THEY HAVE HELPED US SO MUCH SO FAR. I WOULD GLADLY GIVE ANYONE MONEY RIGHT NOW TO PUT AN END TO THESE ROOTHLESS PRACTICES. I MEAN IT!  JUST THINKING OF HOW MUCH PAIN ALL THE KILLED LOVELY DOLPHINS MUST HAVE SUFFERED WHILE THEY WERE BEING PUNCHED BY THE JAPANESE, FAROEN AND PERUAN PEOLE HURTS ME BADLY.

WE ALL PAY OUR TAXES,  SO WE ARE ENTITLED TO DEFEND OUR PRINCIPLES.  DOLPHINS ARE PART OF OUR PRINCIPLES, BECAUSE THEY HAVE PROVEN TO BE ADVANTAGEOUS AND SO HELPFUL TO HUMAN BEINGS THAT WE FEEL WE MUST MAKE IT UP TO THEM.  RESPECT FOR SMART, HELPFUL MAMMALS, NOT KILLING THEM, IS ONE OF OUR PRINCIPLES. IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO DEMAND PROTECTION OF DOLPHINS FROM JAPAN,  PERU AND THE FAROE ISLANDS.  THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE BUT SERIOUSLY.  I AM TALKING ABOUT POLITICIANS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.  THEY SHOULD BE SETTING UP URGENT MEETINGS WITH JAPANESE, PERUAN AND FAROES AUTHORITIES TO STOP THESE KILLINGS.  THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE TACKLED RIGHT AWAY.  NO DELAYS ARE FAIR,   CONCERNING SUCH INTELLIGENT NON-HUMAN BEINGS.

LET US FINISH UP BY SAYING IT IS ALL UP TO OUR POLITICIANS.  WE NEED POLITICIANS TO TAKE THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES SERIOUSLY,  BEING EFFECTIVE AND NOT OVERLOOKING WHAT IS RELEVANT AND ADVANTAGEOUS TO PEOPLE. WE,  HUMAN BEINGS,  LOVE DOLPHINS. THEY HELP US IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS,  AND THEY MAKE US SMILE SO MUCH THAT WE WANT TO STAND BY DOLPHINSWE WANT OUR POLITICIANS NOT TO WASTE ANY MORE TIME,  SET UP URGENT MEETINGS,  AND TELL JAPANESE (TAIJIES),  FAROES AND PERUVIAN PEOPLE TO QUIT KILLING OUR FRIENDLY COMPANIONS.

I AM SOLD ON THE FACT DOLPHINS DESERVE RESPECT AND MUCH MORE,  AND FOR THIS WE NEED COOPERATION BETWEEN MARINE ACTIVISTS AND THE MAJOR TUNA COMPANIES.  THE TUNA COMPANIES NEED TO CHANGE THE TYPE OF NETS TO CATCH TUNA, BUT NOT DOLPHINS.  THIS COOPERATION WILL COME TO TURNS IF POLITICIANS IMPLEMENT HIGHER SALARIES ON BOTH PARTS,  TAKEN BOTH SIDES RESPECT THE DOLPHIN RESPECT TREATY (DRT). THIS DRT ,  WE HAVE JUST CREATED,  WOULD IMPEDE ANYONE TO KILL DOLPHINS.  HAVING PASSED THIS TREATY WOULD MEAN POLITICIANS HAD ALREADY CHANGED THEIR VALUES,  BEING CONCERNED WITH IMPORTANT BEINGS,   AS DOLPHINS ARE.

SO AS TO HELP DOLPHINS SURVIVE WE NEED OUR POLITICIANS TO PUT THEIR MIND TO PRESERVE DOLPHINS LIVES.  YES!  THAT IS REAL BUSINESS!,  THAT IS  WISDOM!,  THAT IS WHAT WE ALL NEED FROM OUR POLITICIANS!. WE NEED OUR POLITICIANS TO CATCH OUR DRIFT AND BE CONCERNED WITH WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US,  AND  THEY COULD START BY BEING GENEROUS. WE,  WORLD INHABITANTS,  ARE HUNGRY FOR POLITICIANS GENEROSITY. OUR POLITICIANS COULD START BEING GENEROUS CUTTING BACK ON IRRELEVANT COSTS, SUCH AS PERKS AND EXPENSES. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY FOR THE POWERS THAT BE  TO GAIN CREDIBILITY,  AND WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT,  TO DO WHAT IT HAS TO BE DONE ACCORDING TO LIFE GOOD PRACTICES.

ALL YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT TIPI, ORPHANED KITTEN SUCKING ACRYLIC BLANKETS.

DSC00335DSC00350DSC00666 DSC00217DSC00220DSC01090DSC01089

Our cat´s name is Tipi. She is two and a half years old. We first knew about her in September 2012. About a couple of months before we met her Tipi was still part of a feline litter. However, this situation did not last much because Tipi´s mother could not feed all of her kittens, and all kittens except Tipi died shortly before we knew about Tipi. Afterwards, the mother cat died of hunger and sadness to see all her kittens but one die little by little. The kittens died because the mother was unable to meet all of her kittens needs. On the other hand she met some needs of her kittens such as heat and sanitation. The most significant  need she could not meet was nutrition. It was the lack of nutrition which made the mother be poor in health, having inadequate milk supply and not sufficient quality of milk for such a large litter. As the mother was unable to care for all of her kittens only one lucky one survived.

For sure Tipi had a good chance at survival. It was at this time when Tipi became an orphaned kitten. One day Tipi noticed a basket nearby and entered it for shelter. Just some time after this was when my mother and I saw Tipi for the first time. We started to feed Tipi  taking her some food every day so that she would have at least the proper nutrition.  Little by little, day after day she would recognize our voices and presence. After spending some days off in Getxo we went back to Soria, but once there we could not stop thinking about Tipi. This was the reason why we decided to go back to Getxo again as soon as we could, to adopt Tipi and bring her back again with us to Soria. And so we did.

We managed to get Tipi come with us, but I must say that the long trip to Soria for an orphaned Kitten was somewhat memorable, to say the least. I must add that by feeding her every day we won her heart. Yes! That is the best way you can be successful in adopting an orphaned kitten. Any orphaned kitten that gets fed by someone every day, together of course with some love while feeding and being with them every day,  makes the difference.

Tipi, as any kitten, would huddle close together with her mother while she lived, to regulate her body temperature, until she developed control of her own thermoregulation. Once her mother died Tipi was very sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. Therefore, when we adopted Tipi she started sucking any blanket we provided her with. Tipi behaved like that because she missed her mother so much that she recalled the sucking she used to enjoy, huddling close together with her.

Tipi has been sucking acrylic blankets at least once a day until very recently, because she could not forget her mother, and also because of the hunger she suffered for quite a long time.
So we can say that not only mammary glands are suckled, but acrylic blankets are as well!  You can watch four videos of Tipi sucking her acrylic blanket, live, on Youtube.

Something else worth mentioning is that Tipi would be crying, specially at night, for more than six months, and all because of the trauma associated with her mother´s death. I have to admit it was not easy to hear and see her crying every  day.  I felt really bad for her. I let it be because I knew it would take her some time to heal the pain. The therapy we used to help her was the following: love, love and more love, if possible. Apart from this we provided her with the adequate nutrition, environment, mental and emotional support that she needed to overcome that trauma she had.

Manuals on orphaned kittens say that unhealty kittens cry a lot. Well then, according to those manuals, I have to admit Tipi is really healthy right now, because she has not cried ever since that long time now.

Tipi has been living with us for sixteeen months up to now, and I can say she is a completely different cat. She is a newborn cat, lively and full of happiness. As time goes by,  Tipi shows greater loyalty and deeper affection for us, apart from being smarter.

Let me encourage everyone of you to adopt any kitten or cat that needs shelter. Around parks, streets or many other different places you may see one of these lovely creatures. Please, do not have second thoughts; do not think about the  color hair or  eyes  It has got, or the look on the cat´s face either. All those characteristics are not relevant whatsoever. You can work wonders making any orphaned cat happy, and consequently , by turning the cat into a happy creature the cat becomes the most beautiful cat she has ever been before, physically speaking.  I can firmly state what I just said before because Tipi has never looked as beautiful as she does right now. No doubt about it, she is on cloud  nine!

WHY ARE ANIMALS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT WE THINK THEY ARE?

THEY PLAY AN OUTSTANDING ROLE IN OUR SOCIETY. WE PROVIDE THEM WITH THE FOOD AND SHELTER THEY NEED IN ORDER TO SURVIVE. WE BUY THEM ALL THE NECESSARY PRODUCTS FOR THEIR SAFETY AND FOR SANITARY REASONS. WE ALSO PROVIDE THEM WITH THE EMOTIONAL CARE THEY LONG FOR. THIS IS A REAL SUPPLEMENT FOR THEIR HEALTH.

IN SPITE OF ALL THE MONEY, THE EFFORT, AND ALL THE TIME WE SPEND DOING SO, IT IS NOT SO MUCH IF WE COMPARE IT WITH THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THEY GIVE US.

THEY ARE SMARTER THAN WHAT WE THINK THEY ARELET US NOT UNDERESTIMATE THEM. IF WE TAKE THE TIME TO OBSERVE THEM ATTENTIVELY WE WILL LEARN ABOUT THEM. OBSERVATION TIME VARIES DEPENDING ON THE ANIMAL. WE WILL FIND OUT THEIR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS ARE TO BE RESPECTED. IF SOMEONE FAILS TO DO SO THE ANIMAL WILL FIND OUT THAT THE PERSON IS NOT TRUSTWORTHY. WHENEVER THAT HAPPENS IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE ANIMAL TO TRUST THAT PERSON AGAIN.
TRUTH IS THEIR LANGUAGE AND IT IS THIS SAME LANGUAGE THAT WE SHOULD BE USING WITH THEM EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. ONE MORAL LESSON MOST PEOPLE LEARN FROM THEM IS GENEROSITY. THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT THERE, NEXT TO US, READY FOR US, GIVING US WHAT THEY KNOW BEST: SHARING GLORIOUS MOMENTS.

ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO GET TO KNOW THEM BETTER AND LEARN FROM THEM IS WATCHING THE TV PROGRAMS MADE BY FELIX RODRIGUEZ DE LA FUENTE. I USED TO WATCH ALL OF THEM WHENEVER THEY WERE ON WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL.  THE PICTURES TOGETHER WITH THE STORY TELLING ABOUT ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT ANIMALS WERE JUST FANTASTIC. THEY NOT ONLY MADE A GOOD IMPRESSION ON ME BUT THEY IMPACTED ME SOMEHOW.

2009 WAS THE FIRST YEAR THAT I DECIDED TO HAVE A PET AT HOME. I ADOPTED A TWO-MONTH OLD KITTEN WHOSE MOTHER LEFT IT ON MY WINDOWSILL. THE MOTHER HAD A LARGE LITTER AND WANTED US TO HELP HER WITH THIS KITTEN, AND SO WE DID. THE MOTHER WOULD PAY US A VISIT EVERY DAY TO MAKE SURE HIS KITTEN WAS ALL RIGHT AND TO THANK US HER SPECIAL, LOVELY WAY. THESE MEMORABLE MOMENTS REALLY PAY OFF!

THEY ARE OUR COMPANIONS AND HELP US IN MANY WAYS. WE ONLY HAVE TO START PAYING ATTENTION TO THEM TO FIND IT OUT. LET US ALL RESPECT OUR PETS, OTHER PEOPLE´S PETS AND ANIMALS IN GENERAL TERMS.
