Living dog’s 4 paws cut off by Woman with saw while conscious

A horrifying case of animal cruelty and abuse has surfaced on the internet as a video of a woman mistreating an tied up dog was posted on the social media.

In the video, a woman can be seen using a saw to slowly remove the dog’s legs as the dog cries in pain. The dog has a muzzle and the other legs seem to be already removed. The dog was conscious through the ordeal and it is unknown if he survived.
 The dog seems to have no fur on him at all and that might be the result of him being skinned alive.
 Please share this petition in an effort to identify this woman and have her prosecuted for her actions! This woman must be identified and I’m most certain someone out there knows who she is.
 With a little help from the animal activists world and the INTERPOL we can make sure that she will be caught and punished for inducing so much pain to innocent animals! Everyone involved in this heinous act of cruelty must pay! Including the cameraman and the other persons from the set!

 Please take action and make sure that she gets caught!*There is word out there that this case might be related to an older one from 2011. In the video from 2011 a woman was seen burning a dog using a blow torch. However that woman was prosecuted for her acts of cruelty and it is unsure if this new video is related to the same abuser.

Investigation continues and more updates will be posted here

Uncommon friendly stingray plays with boy – Video

They say that dog is “man’s best friend” but that’s not a sentiment that’s shared by all other animals. From monkeys to horses, we’ve all seen more than a few YouTube clips of various animals getting very chummy with humans. But here’s a very unusual one.

the boy in this video has developed a special bond with a stingray! Stingrays are typically not aggressive but they’ve earned their name by having a poisonous stinger which they use when they feel their lives are being threatened.

These guys like to hang out in shallow waters so make sure you don’t step on them! You wouldn’t step on your friends would you?

Scientists Discover Cute Huge Eyed Pink Octopus

A marine biology researcher in California has the difficult task of deciding on a name to encapsulate the cuteness of an unclassified octopus with puppy dog eyes.

The animal, which has small wing-like fins on its head, has garnered so many accolades for being ‘adorable’ that the adjective may become its official title.

Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, said that she is considering the scientific name Opisthotheusis Adorabilis for a species currently only known as the flapjack octopus.

She told Science Friday that she is looking for a name for the octopus, which lives in the deep sea at depths of up to 1,476ft (450m), to help differentiate it from other species of the cephalopod.

The unnamed mollusk has a gelatinous body of about 7inches (18cm) in diameter that it spreads wide to ‘parachute’ through stretches of dimly lit water.

Its eight legs joined together by a large web that resembles an umbrella.

They share similarities with ‘dumbo octopuses’ and other similar creatures that inspired the pink Octopus character Pearl in Finding Nemo.

Several of the octopuses, which are found in the Monterey Bay, were captured and allowed to live at the local aquarium.

Aquarium scientists recreated the environment found hundreds of meters below the sea by using red light that quickly dissipates so the Adorabilis can’t see it.

The tank is also set to a very cold temperature to mimic natural conditions.

One of the captured animals was comfortable in the tank and left eggs that are now being incubated.

Researchers believe that the eggs may take three years before hatching out a batch of baby Opisthotheusis Adorabilis.

The new discovery joins other species of ‘flapjack octopuses’ which come in different sizes, shapes and degrees of adorability.

They include Opisthoteuthis californiana, Opisthoteuthis albatrossi and the so-called Dumbo octopus.

Perfect Police Dog Upbringing

It’s a picture sure to melt even the coldest of hearts, and certain to earn the pooches an extra spoonful or two for their efforts.

The photograph taken at a police dog academy shows six dogs queuing up to get their dinner, while holding onto their plates with their teeth.

A black Labrador heads up the line of five German shepherds as they sit patiently with their ears pricked, waiting for their turn to go up to the trainer and receive their food.

It’s not clear where this particular photograph was taken, but previous images from a dog training centre run by the Zhejiang Armed Police Force showed that queuing for dinner is a tradition for the canines there.

‘A good police dog needs to meet these four requirements: good looking, big appetite, courageous and possessive,’ said a Hangzhou-based police dog trainer, according to People’s Daily Online.

Another set of photographs emerged last week showing how Chinese policemen train their pooch friends.

Pictured are officers from around the country convening in Harbin in north eastern China to join a four-month course on dog training, which began last week.

Dog found with muzzle taped shut

The Charleston Animal Society needs help finding the person who taped a dog’s muzzle taped shut. The dog, Caitlyn, is now in critical condition after it was found on a Good Samaritan’s doorstep with electrical tape tightly wound around her muzzle.

The tape was so tight around Caitlyn’s muzzle that her tongue was caught between her teeth, stopping blood flow to her tongue. Officials think that the tape was on Caitlyn for up to 36-48 hours.

The Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Veterinary Care, Dr. Lucy Fuller, DVM, said “Caitlyn is in a lot of pain, her condition is critical, and her prognosis is guarded.” She also said that “A large part of her tongue may need to be removed surgically if the tissue dies from the lack of blood flow. She may be severely disfigured, or the large amount of dead tissue may cause life-threatening complications.”

The story of Caitlyn, the North Charleston dog who had her muzzle taped shut, is now worldwide.

We talked with one man at the Chinese Deli in the Chicora-Cherokee community. That is where the dog was discovered earlier this week. “You gotta think, what kind of cruel person is gonna take their time to that to a dog?”

“It’s many things that’s not good that comes through my mind when I hear it…it’s cruel. It’s degrading. Wrong. Life threatening. Sick. It’s like, the mere thought of it is, I mean, why?? That’s one question that comes through my mind when I look at it, is why?”

Kelli Klein, the director of emergency care at Veterinary Specialty Care in Mount Pleasant says Caitlyn is doing better. “She’s been doing really, really well since transferring to us last night.”

Caitlyn was placed in a hyperbaric chamber Friday to give her more oxygen, to help her wounds heal faster. “She’s had three full meals. She’s been able to (take in food) and swallow it.”

Finding the person who did this to Caitlyn is a top priority.

She is scheduled for her first surgery either Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Treatment for Caitlyn will be paid for by Toby’s Fund, Charleston Animal Society’s medical fund that is only made possible by donations from the community.

“This is the most malicious case of animal abuse I have ever seen in my entire career,” said Charleston Animal Society Director of Anti-Cruelty & Outreach Aldwin Roman. He continued, “to leave this dog in pain, unable to eat or drink and to now leave her in the position where her life is at stake because she may lose her tongue is heartbreaking.”

North Charleston Animal Control is investigating the case and looking for whoever is responsible. Charleston Animal Society is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, and Friday the Humane Society of the United States added another $5,000.  If convicted of ill treatment of an animal, the guilty could face up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Britton’s Prince Harry Catches A Crocodile

Prince Harry completed the “top secret mission” with a team in Darwin Harbour, Australia

Prince Harry helped capture a saltwater crocodile during his tour of Australia last month, newly-released pictures have shown.

The 30-year-old looked relaxed while sitting on the 3.1m (10ft) crocodile, removed from a trap in Darwin Harbour.

The pictures, which also show him hauling in the catch, were released by the Parks and Wildlife Commission Northern Territory.

Meanwhile, the prince has completed an eight-day tour of New Zealand.

Wildlife ranger Erin Britton said the prince would make “a great croc catcher” and said he did a “great job” helping the crocodile management team in the removal of the crocodile.

Bess Price, minister for parks and wildlife, said it was a “top secret mission” that would leave “a unique lasting impression” of the Northern Territory with Prince Harry.

Rangers in the Northern Territory remove crocodiles from waterways used for boating and fishing to limit the risk of fatalities and injuries.

The Parks and Wildlife Commission Northern Territory says more than 200 crocodiles, common in Australia’s tropical north, are removed from Darwin Harbour each year.

They are taken to crocodile farms or killed.

Meanwhile, on his final day in New Zealand, Prince Harry scored a winning goal in the dying seconds of a football match to the delight of a cheering crowd.

The prince took part in the five-a-side game with a group of young players to promote the Fifa under-20 World Cup.

After the 8-7 victory in Auckland, he said: “I’ve had a great time and that win was so well-scripted, thank you.”

Prince Harry has spent a week in New Zealand, his first visit to the country.

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, who was made team coach, praised the prince’s “great display of athletic ability and sheer presence”.

“If you want a spot in the New Zealand team, call us any time, it’s yours,” he said.

Prince Harry also talked to his teammates about football and asked if there were any fellow Arsenal fans.

When one boy said he supported Stoke City, the prince said: “I wouldn’t have spoken up if I was you.”

Prince Harry also revealed he was looking forward to the FA Cup final between his team, Arsenal, and brother Prince William’s side Aston Villa.

He then went to the AUT Millennium Institute of Sport and Health where he tried out different exercises with All Blacks rugby player Kieran Read.

These included lifting weights, playing netball, throwing a rugby ball through a tyre and rope pulling.

Prince Harry landed in the country on 9 May, receiving a traditional Maori welcome in Wellington before travelling to Stewart Island, the country’s most southern and remote community.

He has also spent time in Christchurch, finding out about the city’s efforts to regenerate after the earthquake in 2011.

Suspected wildlife smuggler arrested for jamming Cockatoos inside small size water bottles

Indonesian police have arrested a suspected wildlife smuggler after discovering nearly two dozen rare birds jammed inside plastic water bottles in his luggage.

The 37-year-old man was stopped by police on Monday as he alighted from a passenger ship in Surabaya, a city on the main island of Java.

Photographs show the birds, mostly yellow-crested cockatoos, peering out of the bottles after being found by officers. The bottoms of the bottles had been cut off to squeeze the birds inside.

The head of the criminal investigation unit at the Tanjung Perak port, Aldy Sulaiman, said police found the live birds stashed inside the man’s luggage.

“We found 21 yellow-crested cockatoos and one green parrot,” he said.

“All the birds were found inside water bottles, which were packed in a crate.”

The birds have since been sent to Indonesia’s natural resources conservation office, which deals with wildlife-trafficking cases.

Mr Sulaiman said the man — whose identity was not disclosed in line with normal criminal procedure in Indonesia — had admitted to carrying two birds for a friend but claimed to know nothing about the other animals.

If found guilty of smuggling, the man, from near Surabaya, could face up to five years in prison.

Yellow-crested cockatoos are native to Indonesia and neighboring East Timor and considered critically endangered, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

They are different to the larger and more common sulfur-crested cockatoo which is mostly found in Australia and New Guinea.
