Endangered Animals Wrongly Seized After Sacntuary Founder Speaks Against Thai Government

Filed under: Legal MattersZooEndangeredElephants

As we previously mentioned, in Petchaburi, Thailand Thai officials have raided the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) and Elephant Nature Park (ENP).

The founders of these sanctuaries had recently spoken out against (possibly government sanctioned) elephant poaching.

One of these founders said:

"The situation is desperate. Armed Department of National Parks enforcement officers have forced their way onto our properties and have begun confiscating animals.

They claim we don’t have necessary paperwork but this is a lie. I’m horrified that innocent animals are now paying the price for my commitment to preventing illegal poaching.

The DNP personnel are not properly trained or prepared to move or manage the animals we have in our facility and many are likely to be injured or killed as a result of these unjust actions.

Further, the last time DNP confiscated animals they were never seen again."

The DNP (Department of National Parks) has not given out any plan as to what will be done with the animals or even any specific reason for the confiscation.

A nationally recognized animal trainer said:

"The actions of the Thai officials appear to be financially and politically motivated and have nothing to do with the safety, security or welfare of the animals housed at either facility."

This is sad and just plain wrong.

Someone needs to do something!

Over 750 Dogs Saved From Vietnamese Dinner Plates

Filed under: Legal MattersDogRescueCrazzzzy

dog-resceu-750-thai.jpg

Thai authorities have saved over 750 dogs from an illegal smuggling operation that was trying to bring them to Vietnam.

In Vietnam, dog meat is considered a delicacy, which is absolutely disgusting.

A Thai navy patrol caught the smugglers on a river, during the transportation of the dogs.

One Thai man was arrested on several charges, mainly illegal transportation of animals.

The other smugglers escaped.

All the dogs are going to be sent to a shelter, where they definitely won't be eaten.

A happy ending for hundreds of doggies!!

Non-Carbohydrate Based Vegetarian Recipe Ideas!

Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AAdviceRecipesVegetarian

Veggie chili

We know there are plenty of vegetarians out there and they aren't just eating bread every meal!

Many newcomers to the lifestyle rely too heavily on carbohydrates in their effort to avoid meat and don't know where to get their protein from.

A FitPerez reader who has recently become a vegetarian wants to avoid eating too many carbs and wrote to The Hot Plate's Amanda Garbutt for help, asking:

I've recently become a vegetarian and most of my meals are carb based. Do you have any recipe ideas for vegetarians that don't involve pasta, pizza or bread? I could really use a change!


According to Amanda:


Absolutely! There is such a myth that because you don’t eat meat the only thing left are carbs! It’s like all of a sudden all the protein disappeared.

Some great recipe ideas are vegetarian chilis with beans and veggie meat to ensure that you are getting tons of lean protein and iron. Other easy tricks start with the perfect sauce. Try picking up some pre-prepared Indian or Thai curry sauces. Make sure to check the label for low fat and sodium content, but they transform any simple dish into a masterpiece. Try sautéing chickpeas, spinach, cherry tomatoes with a Madras curry paste then just pour over a little whole grain rice for a complete meal. It is so important for vegetarians to watch their iron and protein intake!

Thailand Flood Baby Floating In Tire

Awful! So sad!

If you've been paying attention to the news, we're sure you're aware of the devastating floods that have kept Thailand sleeping with one eye open for the past few months.

Now the death toll has risen to 237 as of Wednesday. And those are just the ones reported.

It's predicted that more rain will fall on the nation within the week as Typhoon Nalgae makes her b*tchy appearance.

Our thoughts go out to everyone who's lost a loved one.
