Jada Pinkett Smith Wants The Bullhook Ban Enforced

jada-pinkett-smith-elep-ban-bullhook.jpg

Jada Pinkett Smith is a native of Baltimore and as Ringling Bros. circus nears its Baltimore stop Jada has penned a letter to the Mayor.

She wants to urge her to make sure there is a ban on any "mechanical, electrical, or manual device that is likely to cause physical injury or suffering" to an animal in order to force it to perform.

In her letter, she wrote:

"Unlike me and other actors, elephants do not choose to perform. They are often violently coerced by Ringling's trainers with bullhooks, which are jabbed into the sensitive areas of their bodies."

So let's hope the Mayor makes sure to keep Ringling honest or else the circus may face another huge fine.

Crazy Couple Reunited With Lost Stuffed Monkey

Filed under: MonkeyCrazzzzy

bongo the monkey

Big news from NYC! Bongo missing child beanie baby has been found!

"I never gave up hope — I prayed, mediated, and now he’s with us again"

said Bonni Marcus, 47, who was heartbroken after losing Bongo, a stuffed monkey she had raised like a child for the past ten years.

Bong was lost on Marcus's walk home from eating a meal with her boyfriend Jack Zinzi in Brooklyn on August 1st.

Zinzi and Marcus must have a lot of time on their hands cause the couple made flyers and passed them out around the neighborhood.

Lucky for them they asked a group of men including near by resident Luis Barreto about Bong and the reward. Barreto said found the beanie baby / lost loved one on a parking meter and took it back to his place.

As they approached his apartment Marcus said she "felt Bongo’s presence." We're guessing she also must have felt a server head injury in her childhood.

Bongo will also be reunited with his identical Beanie Baby brothers — named Doe, Ray and Me — who Marcus said, “were also suffering.”

Veteran Prescribes Pets To Cure PTSD

Filed under: PetsDogAwwwww

Awww!!

Laughter A pet is the great medicine!

When Dave Sharp began suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after encountering two near-death experiences in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, he found peace from his six month old puppy.

Dave realized:

"There are 18 veterans that commit suicide every day in America. And there's an animal that is put to sleep every 8 seconds."

So Dave started this ultra fabulous program called "Pets To Vets" - which pairs war vets with a companion.

Just watch to see how grateful the vets, and the pets, are for this program!

Cell Phones Signals May Be Killing Bees

Are Cell Phones May Be Killing Bees

Yay!!! We mean… oh, darn it!

Signals from mobile phones could be partly to blame for the mysterious deaths of honeybees, new research shows.

In the first experiment of its kind, a bee expert placed a mobile phone underneath a hive and then carefully monitored the reaction of the workers.

The bees were able to tell when the handsets were making and receiving calls, and responded by making the high pitched squeaks that usually signal the start of swarming.

Some experts say the latest generation of pesticides may disrupt the nervous systems of bees, causing them to get lost and confused.

And most bee experts say the creatures are suffering from the loss of wild flowers, meadows, rough pasture and untidy gardens.

However, a handful of experts say mobile phones could also be partly to blame.

Technology Reunites Dog With Owner

Filed under: DogAmazing

Tech Dog

Amazing!

A pet owner's prayers are finally answered after his lost dog is found after three years.

The dog somehow disappeared from Father Annibal Morales' home in 2008. Last week, someone found Logo and dropped him off at Miami-Dade Animal services.

"As a priest, we don't have family of our own, losing him was like losing a part of my family,"

said Father Annibal Morales.

Morales said the last time he saw Logo, which was more than three years ago, he was just a puppy. The only reason they are reunited now is because of the microchip he put on the dog.

The $10 implant meant the difference between Logo being lost and now found.

"As long as the dog shows up at a regular vet, any private vet or any regular vet or shelter in the whole world, it doesn't matter where, they can find the owner. It's worthwhile to have that on your dog. It's been three years, but it's worthwhile to find him."

Although he is suffering from a skin condition and appeared to be scared and skinny, Logo will be nursed back into shape at his owner's new home next to Miami's Corpus Christi Catholic Church.
