    On my Twitter timeline... a tweet depicted a video of a young woman in Ontario abusing her dog with her boyfriend.

    It wasn't of the grotesque variety: they called it over... it submissively approached them with the demeanour of an animal distrustful yet optimistic... they dumped water on its head. Then they said, "Wanna go outside?" And it ran out and they shut the door with Daisy outside while they laughed at her and left her outside.It's -20 in Ontario.

    It's affected me. What is with people?

    I realize there are bigger, more depraved acts of cruelty towards animals (and humans for that matter). This tweet reminded me that we don't hear of the 'run of the mill' cruelty animals face on a daily basis.

    And it makes me angry. To be honest.., as much as I want to adopt that dog... I wanted to slap that idiot and punch her boyfriend out.
    Horrible people indeed, makes me angry, as well poor dog.

    In China and Indonesia dogs are being tortured in local markets before they are being eaten up. They are a disgrace for human kind.

    Other countries should react much stronger against things like this with sanctions, this horror must be stopped.
    Now we are going to have the olympics in South Korea.
    There are 17.000 dog farms in that country.

    The torturing piece is disgusting.

    I have to be honest... it would be hypocritical of me to scoff at another culture's protein source when I have mine (but I understand where you are at).

    The torture is what makes me feel the most disgust and also that they are being brought up in these farms in small cages.

    Very unethical. Saddening.

    "The anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd has opposed Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary every year from 2005 to 2017 except for the 2014/2015 season when the whalers did not return to Antarctic waters. Sea Shepherd sent two ships down to the Southern Ocean last year (2016/2017), and although they got close, they could not close in because of advanced military satellite technology that allowed the whalers to see Sea Shepherd's movements in real time.

    The organization did not return for the 2017/2018 whaling operation “because it would be like taking a slingshot to a gunfight in pursuit of whalers who can see us but we can’t see them - in other words, a fruitless waste of time and resources,” said founder Paul Watson.

    “Our 12 years of opposition had helped to force the kill quotas down from 1,035 to 333 and removed Humpbacks and Fin whales from the butcher’s table. We also contributed immensely to the Japanese whaling fleet being exposed and condemned for their illegal whaling activities and in the process severely humiliated the Japanese whalers and government. We also cost the whalers tens of millions of dollars and most importantly we saved the lives of over 6,000 whales and the lives of all the calves that have since been born to the whales we spared from the harpoons.”

  • Let's leave the whales alone. They're smarter than us for gawds sakes.

    Something along the line of an "Oh my god, what are we doing?" thread. 

    This quote from the article you posted, Thirty, really gets to me: 

    "It is becoming increasingly clear that plastic in our oceans is a core threat to marine life in the decades to come.  Approximately 5 trillion pieces of plastic are estimated to be floating around the world's oceans based on a recent study. To make matters worse, marine experts believe the total weight of plastic in our oceans could outweigh fish i the world's oceans by 2050."

    We have to deal with this or face extinction.  Jacques Cousteau said a long time ago, "If the oceans die, we die."  The oceans are dying and yet we keep dumping plastic into the ocean.  There has to be a way to stop this, but I don't see many governments doing anything..  This is why I support Sea Shepherds.  They are one of the few organizations are are actually doing something to save marine life and the oceans.  Even Greenepeace (bless them for there earnest though misguided efforts) are not really doing much besides protesting.  It's time to do more than protest.  It's more than time to do something

    It's truly scary, Brian.
