What Does the Giraffe Say?
9-17-15, Wired -- For decades zookeepers reported occasional snorts as the only sounds their made by giraffes. Giraffes do have a larynx (voice box), but perhaps they couldn't produce sufficient airflow through their 13-foot long trachea to vibrate their vocal folds and make noises; but they do humm...

Morocco & Algeria: Argan Trees & Goats
The 'fruit' of the Argan tree is what the goats are after. It looks like a shriveled olive or like an acorn from an oak; annually- around June - it ripens. The resourceful goats often climb up to 30 feet above ground for their meal that's up to 84 percent of their diet. They eat and swallow the whole fruit, even though it's the pulp hiding under the thick peel that that covers a nut that they do not digest. This nut is 'harvested' by humans ...

Al Gore and His Minion's Hysteria About Ice and Polar Bears Has Been Proven to Be False
Recent studies found polar bear populations are doing fine. A 2016 study by Canadian researchers, found “no reliable evidence to support the contention that polar bears are currently experiencing a climate crisis.” There have been periods when the bears had no ice and survived ...

Democrats fight for baby cats/animals right to life after voting to kill born-alive human babies
In one of the sickest ironies no one is talking about, Senate liberal Democrats picked this moment — 17 days after they voted to kill America's perfectly healthy human babies [infants] — to fight for the humane treatment of baby cats.
Apparently the Democrat strategists are out to lunch, or maybe the Left really is this shameless; interesting to wonder how some of these politicians standing on debate platforms in 2020 will tell the American people about protecting living things:
We chose cats over human kids.
Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), is the sponsor; here he is, arguing that America "must stop killing kittens!" When only three weeks ago, he stood in the U.S. Capitol agreeing with 43 other Democrats that human beings should be put down he said:
"The USDA's decision to slaughter kittens [2000/year?] after they are used in research is an archaic practice and horrific treatment, and we need to end it." What passion!
The United States of America slaughters hundreds of thousands human babies annually and now it's legal if they are outside the womb breathing. Makes me sick!

Eagle, "Walt" Rescued By Montana Deputy
2-22-19, Billings Gazette -- While patrolling in Cascade County Montana, Deputy Jay Groskreutz spotted an eagle on the side of the road. The eagle appeared to be snacking on a nearby deer carcass and for some unknown reason wasn't able to fly. Groskreutz got a blanket from his car and pinned the wings and picked it up putting it in the back of the patrol car. The eagle was taken by animal control and transferred to a dog kennel.
Groskreutz called the eagle "Walt" after the TV character Walt Longmire. Walt was malnourished and is being nursed at the Montana WILD Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Helena. Rescuing and rehabilitating raptors isn't uncommon and the goal for all rescued birds is to release them back to the wild. More here

Cincinnati: Hip Hip Hooray for Baby Hippo!
New York: Hip Hip Hooray for Dead Baby Humans!
1-23-19, In New York, leaders shout ‘hooray’ at the new law approving the killing of baby humans in the womb up to nine months … even the ghoulish freedom to kill the baby if it dares to live after being aborted. What an abomination that Americans [and others] devote so much emotion, time, energy and finances to keeping four footed animals alive yet cheer for the death of baby humans. The USA is in the valley of despair - no wonder our kids are committing suicide at such an increased rate; they can see that animals are valued more than they are.
Hooray for the hippo in Cincinnati … baby Fiona lives.

1-23-19, Unless women in New York are in some way different from women in the rest of the world, most think it's murder to kill an unborn baby. However, too often it's socially acceptable to kill an unwanted baby than put it up for adoption. Yes, the life of the child is sacrificed. Women have the pleasure of sex without the consequences of motherhood. It's for her convenience to kill the child: life style, job, whatever.
Rush Limbaugh asked the question, 'If it's now legal in New York to kill the full term baby up to nine months, or let it die if it makes it through the abortion; why go through the abortion? You can just kill him or her can't you?' No!
The Discovery of Unicorns and Their Biblical Importance
"But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.”
3-31-16, * --Recently, an interesting fossil animal skull was discovered. What makes it so special? It was the skull of a unicorn. I’m not kidding. Siberian unicorns are an extinct mammal species that looked more like a rhinoceros instead of a horse. However, their horn wasn't on their snout like a rhino, but instead, was on their forehead. This discovery of a skull in Kazakhstan is notable because it is carbon dated to exist much more recently than previously thought.
We actually shouldn’t be surprised that unicorns once roamed the earth. They are mentioned eight times in the King James Holy Bible. These creatures are referred to in modern translations as “wild ox.”
People have a problem with the Bible’s unicorns because we cannot think of a similar modern animal. However, a single-horned feature is found in both the rhinoceros and the narwhal.
In the passage in Job, their mention was to help Job to see God’s greatness. And using an imaginary animal would have defeated that purpose. More in Psalm 22:21, 29:6, 92:10; Isaiah 34:7, Numbers 23:22, 24; Deuteronomy 33:17
There is even archaeological evidence in rock drawings of large, one-horned, equine-like animals. A report on these drawings details an animal with a “single horn, directly in front, about as long as one’s arm…it was not attached to the bone of the forehead, but fixed only in the skin.”
Indeed, this extinct giant one-horned animal supports the truths of the Bible as both God’s inspired Word and a true historical document. Yes, unicorns were real.

Jr High biology teacher, Robert Crosland's two-day trial, a verdict OF NOT GUILTY was reached; Jury deliberated for only 30 minutes...
According to a friend of Crosland, he did feed the puppy to the turtle, but other details surrounding the story have gotten twisted and misconstrued.
Someone brought a sick, deformed and abandoned puppy to Crosland, a man reportedly well-known for taking in hurt and sick animals. Crosland couldn’t get the puppy to eat or drink and was beyond saving. The person who brought it in knew it needed to be put down.
Crosland put the puppy into the snapping turtle’s tank, where it drowned and was eaten, according to McKay. The three boys who watched all work on farms and understood what was happening.

Officials kill the snapping turtle that ate a puppy
Idaho: The snapping turtle at Preston Junior High School's science department was seized by the Idaho Dept of Agriculture and killed for doing what snapping turtles do. Eat stuff given to them. Reportedly the creature was “humanely” put down. A spokesperson for the department that enforces provisions of the Invasive Species Act, said the doomed turtle was put down for being a non-native species without a permit reported by the Salt Lake Tribune. Is PETA outraged? It's the 'cute' factor ... the puppy is cute so there's outrage ... a snapping turtle is not cute. Disgusting.
