The UK's Exploding Dartmoor Ponies Go On The Pill

Filed under: AnglophiliaScience!Horses

dartmoor-ponines-birth-control.jpg

The Dartmoor Pony is a wild horse that lives in south-western England and there's been a recent population explosion.

It is a semi-feral pony which means that they're basically wild horses but they have contact with humans and have learned to tolerate them whether it is occasional feeding, medical care or just crossed paths.

These ponies have been breeding like crazy recently with many of them ending up in sanctuaries or at the slaughterhouse.

So vets working with World Horse Welfare have partnered with the drug company Pfizer to bring contraceptive injections to the ponies.

A vet said:

President Obama Goes To Restaurant That Still Serves Shark Fin Soup

Filed under: Barack ObamaSharkAnimal Cruelty

obama-eats-at-shark-fin-soup.jpg

President Obama was recently in San Francisco and while there, he grabbed some chinese food to go from a restaurant called Great Eastern Restaurant.

We're not exactly sure how that particular restaurant was chosen but all we know is somebody messed up.

That establishment is one of the few in San Fran's Chinatown that still serves shark fin soup.

As we're sure U already know, shark fin soup is a controversial dish because of how millions of sharks are caught every year and senselessly slaughtered by having their fins cut off and their bodies tossed back in the ocean to die.

And all for a soup that apparently doesn't even have much flavor.

Many states, including California, have

Puerto Rico Wants To Kill Millions Of Iguanas And Sell Their Meat

Filed under: Huntinglizards

iguana-killin-pr.jpg

In Puerto Rico, there are literally more iguanas than people.

They outnumber them 4 million to 3.9 million.

The secretary of their Department of Natural Resources said:

"This is a very big problem. We have to attack it. It has impacted structures, the economy, crops and the ecosystem."

The iguana can grow up to 6 feet and live up to 20 years!!

That's crazy.

It started in the 1970s when iguana owners started to realize their 'too large' lizards and now their population has exploded.

They occupy airport runways, burrow under buildings (ruining the foundation) and cause blackouts after building their nests near the warmth of electric plants.

So they plan to hunt the iguanas and export their meat.

Many government high ups in Puerto Rico believe this will not only thin out the population, it will bring in much needed money to the country, currently in a recession.

We don't think killing is the answer. Hopefully conservationists will find a humane way to deal with the problem.

Rose McGowan Spends Some Time At The Gentle Barn!

Filed under: InspirationCowFarm

Rose McGowan has certainly made some lovely new animal friends!

The actress was recently photographed while she spent the day at The Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita, which is a rescue home for 130 farm animals that have been subjected to severe abuse, neglect, or slaughter, and once they're recovered, they help treat and heal children who also have suffered from abuse!

Ch-ch-check her out with the gorgeous cow Buttercup, who, after losing her own calf at seven months, now nurtures other baby cows rescued by the farm (above)!

Wow.

We're incredibly moved to hear that this place not only helps animals in desperate need of it, but promotes a kind of lovely 'pay it forward' attitude with them - so they can come to the aid of young people and help them heal in ways that might not ordinarily be available to them!

Thank you, Rose, for taking the time to be involved in such an organization and bringing attention to the wonderful things that they do!
