Dog theft has become something of an industry here ...
Just dog theft? Poor :kitty:s!
I just saw/"read" this, and it's somewhat alarming/heartbreaking: https://www.yahoo.com/news/otters-georgia-aquarium-test-positive-173934819.html
Several short-clawed otters tested positive for coronavirus. They are/were symptomatic.
To make up for the previous article, here's another rather interesting article/video: https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/wolf-collar-cam-075822857.html The wolf showed that s/he has a rather fascinating dietary choice.
Who likes bears?
US President Joe Biden's administration will suspend oil and gas leases in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge pending an environmental review.
..for that matter, who likes humans?
We can also become extinct. Many of us are already under severe pressure.
Clearly the best.thing that.could happen for.the vast majority of God's creatures and this planet....and probably the universe.
Should.we.survive to.acieve space.travel and colonization, we are surely the virus
US environmental agency releases climate report delayed by Trump
Coastal flooding is becoming more common, especially in cities along the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Floods are now five times more common in the cities surveyed than in the 1950s.
Ocean temperatures also hit a record-breaking high in 2020 and the water has grown more acidic over the past decade.
Wildfire season and pollen season are both starting earlier and lasting longer.
Heat waves are occurring about three times more often than in the 1960s.

I hope people ask him about this. I understand that he will be holding a rally in Dallas, Texas next month.
Are that many people unconcerned and still think that climate-change is a hoax?
I'm afraid that denial is one of the strongest forces known to man.
The United States has banned the importation/"rescue" of dogs from 113 countries due to rabies:
D@mn it, there is a mandatory vaccine against this disease! Why the fook can't/won't Big Pharma export the prevention, saving all of these dogs' lives?
Min, the Red Panda at the Minneapolis Zoo, passed away either the 22nd or 23 of this month. AFAIK, she didn't have any offspring (I found out about her from an online friend from the area.) She was only ten (red pandas can reach twenty years old iirc.)
This might you off royally: https://www.yahoo.com/news/3-endangered-sumatran-tigers-found-104409123.html
Three Sumatran tigers were murdered by poachers, two were a mother and her female cub.
Personally/Purrsonally, I wish that the poachers and anyone who purchase items made from the tigers would find themselves mauled by an injured prey animal that Sumatran tigers hunt instinctively. As I Will, So Mote It Be.
Too bad homo sapiens can't/won't emulate this :kitty: pair (during their rescue) more often!
A heroic dog! I'm not a speciesist! https://www.yahoo.com/news/gotta-two-time-hero-dog-021000563.html
A service dog helped his "client" escape a massive fire that literally destroyed their house (the "client" is legally blind to the point he requires a dog to navigate the world.)
This woman needs to lose all rights to have animals in her custody imo: https://www.yahoo.com/news/berks-woman-pleads-guilty-25-040100831.html
She pled guilty to 25 counts of animal cruelty, but even more animals, including :kitty:s, were taken from her since last year.
This might get you https://www.yahoo.com/news/30-lions-euthanized-devastating-animal-150850686.html
I wonder how the owner of the farm would feel if he was treated the same way as the lions that were euthanized.
To make up for the previous post, here are several animals playing/eating pumpkins: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/zoo-animals-smashing-eating-pumpkins-153854677.html
