BOYCOTT! Copenhagen Zoo Murders Young Giraffe BOYCOTT!

A healthy young giraffe named Marius was shot dead and necropsied, which is an autopsy for animals, in the presence of visitors.

I don’t know if you have read this horrific story or not. I heard it last night on the News and it made me sick. The young, healthy giraffe, above, was shot in the head and this dissected in front of visitors. The reason for shooting this beautiful animal is because they did not want their animals to interbreed. There was an offer from another zoo to take the animal but the original zoo declined their offer. Instead of giving the beautiful giraffe to another zoo to help with their repopulation they shoot it in the head. Murdering it.

Signing a petition does no good. Boycotting these barbarians does. Hit them where it hurts in their wallets. I sincerely hope if you live in the Copenhagen area you boycott this zoo. I hope it is picketed and I sincerely hope it is eventually closed down. People that treat one poor animal like this have no business dealing with any animals at all.

Please pass this story along and call for a  boycott against this zoo and their inhumane treatment of animals.

Your Animal Spirit for October 10th is Eagle

Your Animal Spirit for Today
October 10, 2013

Eagle

Eagle soars high enough to see the grand panorama of life, and yet has vision keen enough to spot a fish a mile away. How’s your vision? Are you seeing the big picture or are you only concentrating on the fish? Eagle is asking you to take a step back so you can once again see the whole. You’ve gotten so lost in the trees you’ve forgotten the forest.

Which Bird Are You?

by Cait Johnson

Let your imagination take flight with this fun quiz that can tell you  something significant about your true nature. After all, if you’re a sparrow  you’ll need to beware of hawks, and if you’re a heron, you need periodic times  of stillness in order to thrive. Birds can give us useful information about what  we need and who we most deeply are.

Learn more so you can really soar, here:

Answer the following questions TRUE or FALSE (and be truthful with  yourself!).

1. I do my best work alone.

2. People have told me I am a visionary, capable of seeing the big  picture.

3. I am quick and incisive when it comes to making decisions.

4. I am in a leadership position at work or in my life; people tell me I have  a lot of personal power.

5. I come alive after dark; early rising is not for me.

6. I sometimes need to come to a complete standstill before I make a  move.

7. My nature is extremely quick: my metabolism, thoughts, and actions tend to  be on the fast side.

8. I love to talk and/or sing.

9. Although I am imaginative, I prefer to stay close to home.

10. I thrive under adverse conditions and often find unusual ways of seeing  things.

11. I enjoy interacting with many people at work.

12. If I had to choose one word to sum up the meaning of life for me, it  would be “joy.”

13. I am drawn to watery landscapes and find great serenity beside ponds,  lakes, and inlets.

14. I love a sense of spaciousness; heights don’t scare me.

15. I prefer to see all sides of something before I make a decision. People  tell me I have a well-rounded sense of things.

Take note of the clusters that are mostly true for you: they can tell you  which bird is your guide.

If you answered TRUE to 1, 3, 7, and 12 you are a HUMMINGBIRD.

If you answered TRUE to 1, 2, 4, and 14 you are an EAGLE.

If you answered TRUE to 1, 5, 10, and 15 you are an OWL.

Bird Migration

Bird Migration


Each year, with the onset of Winter, flocks of birds from the Northern hemisphere fly long distances to warmer territories in the South. Birds navigate their way by following internal compasses comprising tiny grains of a mineral called magnetite, stored in their brains. During rest stops they recalibrate their inner compasses using the positions of the stars to account for the fact that magnetic north lies 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometres) from the North Pole. When rest stops are too short, birds can get disorientated. In a similar way we possess a sense of inner knowing that helps us to find our way in life. But, unless we allow ourselves daily periods of time alone in which to tune into this inner knowing and recalibrate it against changing circumstances, we, like migrating birds, can lose our way.
