Katrina

Hurricane Katrina was a miserable occurance for everyone  down south, but inspiring stories of heroism have helped give victims something  to smile about. That’s certainly the case with Katrina, the ironically named  black labrador who saved  a drowning man before rising flood waters claimed his life. The dog, who was later rescued herself by rescue teams, was honored at that year’s  Genesis Awards with a standing ovation.

Maya

You don’t get to be the 2008 Dog of the Year for nothing,  and this pooch is no exception. Maya took home this year’s honors for courageously saving  Angela Marcelino, her owner, from a vicious male attacker. The  pitbull’s act of bravery earned some high praise from the Animal Miracle  foundation, who was happy to report that “the pitbull breed can be hero  dogs just like any other breed.”

Moti

2007′s Dog of the Year winner was Moti, the five year old  German  Shepherd who literally took a bullet for his human family. When a  masked intruder made his way into the Patel household, Moti wasted little time,  leaping to his feet and barking to draw the gunman’s attention. Faced with the  angry pooch, the gunman shot him and ran off without harming any of the Patels.  Luckily, this furry hero is made a full recovery.

 Honey

Honey was the 2006 Dog of the Year, an award she earned by  saving her owner from a violent car accident. When she and Michael Bosch found  their SUV rolled over and stuck upside down in a deep ravine, Bosch was trapped  and knew that Honey was his only hope. With all his strength,  he managed to release the dog and hope that  she would somehow find help. Sure enough, the then 5 month old English Cocker  Spaniel got the attention of a man about a half-mile away and brought him to  the scene of the accident. Rescuers concluded that had it not been for Honey Bosch would have died.

Nellie

All dogs are known for their super-sharp hearing, but most  of them don’t win awards for it. But when Nellie, a 4 year old black lab, used  her high powered ears to detect an intruder in time to save her  severely deaf owner, it would’ve been a crime to give the Heroic Hearing Dog of  the Year award to anyone else! The charity that trained Nellie couldn’t have  been more proud.

The Alien of the Everglades

The Alien of the Everglades

Burmese pythons are native to the Southeast of Asia but are established in the Florida
Everglades. The invasion comes from the pet trade where the snakes are
purchased and exported to their new home weather it is a zoo or a neighbor’s
home. However, a small Burmese python will grow into a very large Burmese
python therefore, the snakes become too large to handle, since Burmese pythons
have been recorded just shy of 30 feet and weighing just over 400 pounds this
makes it extremely hard for the owner to take care of it. In many cases people
do not think of the consequences and release the Burmese python into the
wilderness. One of the most popular dropping points is the everglades. The Everglades
are one of the most delicate ecosystems in the world. When a new species is
introduced into an environment it can have a dangerous outcome. A Burmese python
is an eating machine so to speak when introduced into the Everglades it can be catastrophic.
There has been spotting of the Burmese Python eating alligators as large as
6ft! Imagine if a 6ft alligator is fair game to one of these snakes how do you
think this will end for the other creatures that call the Everglades their
home…

The Florida Black Bear is in trouble!!!

 The Florida Black Bear is on the protected species list but not
for long. The state of Florida is taking the Florida Black Bear of the
protected list. If your one of those people who give a dame you might be
wondering why they are doing this, well here is my theory people suck they hunt
for animals for the fun of it! The law states killing someone is wrong but
killing a animal is okay I mean come on people that’s not fair talk about
double standard. Just because they are animals doesn’t mean they are less than
us in fact they don’t go around killing each other like spoiled brats but
humans do. Animals have been taking humans crap for decades it’s time to show
them respect we can start by keeping to majestic Florida Black Bear on the
protected list. Now I’m sure some of you are a bunch of gullible idiots and believe
it when the government or whoever is in charge at that moment says they are a danger
to our community. Well news flash dumb ass they have nowhere to go people take
and take. Start giving the Florida Black Bear reassurance that it will be
safe and its cubs will be safe from humans animals should have equal rights!!!

One amazing student

Most kids get butterflies in their stomachs when they have to read a book report aloud in class. This week, bright elementary student Rose McCoy spoke before hundreds of McDonald’s investors and executives at the company’s annual meeting. Armed with 20,000 of the nearly 125,000 signatures that PETA collected from young consumers, our superstar volunteer brilliantly made our shareholder resolution stand out in the room full of suits. She asked the fast-food behemoth to require its suppliers to switch to a less cruel method of slaughtering chickens.

A message from Animalstalk

Aspca

The ASPCA is a great organization. The people who work or volunteer there take long hours of their day/week to help animals in need. If you are looking to adopt a new member into your family I highly recommend giving one of these abused animals another chance at life.
