All tag results for dying
The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!
The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!
Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.
The numbers are cray cray!
Oh no! Poor manatees!
Off both of Florida's coasts almost 200 manatees have died due to a red tide!
A red tide is a bloom of algae where microorganisms build up and stain the ocean red, releasing toxins.
These toxins are harmful to fish, manatees and even people.
They attack the nervous system, causing short-term memory loss, paralysis, seizures and then death!!!

This is messed up!
Outrage ensued after photos of horses dying or possibly dead surfaced online.
The pictures were from a Bonneville County farm, owned by a Sharon Wilson. When reporters tried to contact her - they found out her number had been disconnected.
Here's what a reported on the scene said:
Why would anyone do something so HORRIBLE!?!
An abandoned dog was recently thrown in a dumpster at Mount Miguel High School in San Diego wrapped in a blanket inside of a tightly shut bag, and even though he was found… it was just too late.
When the 10-year-old male cocker spaniel was rescued, his fur was rumpled and his health was very feeble.
He was then taken to the San Diego Department of Animal Services, where he was put down because there was no way his condition was gonna get better.
The department is currently searching for the cruel criminals who are responsible for this disgusting act.
If you, or anyone you know have any information on this crime, please contact Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or Deputy Director Dan DeSousa at (619) 767-2624.
An award of $1,000 is being offered for any deets that can lead to an arrest.
Ol Boy was a dog who lives most of his life on the streets.
Found bruised and broken, this pooch was on his last legs but he never felt any love from anyone.
Until his final days…
Covered in ticks and lesions and unable to move, Ol Boy taken home by Save Our Street Dogs, a Singaporean rescue organization.
Ol Boy was taken to the vet and other dogs at the shelter helped comfort him as well as the caretakers.
The dying pooch survived on air conditioning water and leftovers until he was finally given a warm environment for the first time.
He stood up to drink some water at 2 AM one night, he died two hours later, peacefully in his sleep.
Watch the heart-wrenching tale (above) of a dog who was finally treated well after years of suffering.
So sad…RIP Ol Boy
