FBI Will Begin Tracking Cases of Animal Abuse

Of course, as an animal lover and a voice for them, the first thing I thought with the prompt “bus” was “abuse.” Although, it is not a fun subject and I realize a lot of people want to keep their head in the sand about it, because it is hard to deal with, it is still reality. So, the first thing I want to say about the following article I have linked in my post is…Hallelujah! It’s about time!

I saw this article in my Newsfeed on Facebook. I recently wrote a post about this very dog they are showing, so it caught my attention. Although revisiting the article on this poor precious dog made me sad, I felt such excitement of the hope and step forward for animals!

There has been studies done on the link between animal violence and human violence for a while now. I wrote an article about this that I submitted to “The Editor” of my local newspaper and it was published. Some of the article is in the post I am speaking of which you can read here.

The future of animals being treated, as they deserve, falls on children. I have a (not as heavy) post you can read here discussing this and it also has some adorable photos of children and animals!

Steps forward for animals like this one where the FBI will be tracking animal abuse cases, (even if the goal is for the benefit of humans, the animals will benefit too-yay!) gives me encouragement to keep on keeping on helping and fighting for God’s precious animals!

Elephants in Entertainment

Doesn’t this elephant look really happy?


Elephants are beautiful creatures. They are extremely social, intelligent, have a long memory span, and have the largest brain in the animal kingdom.

Elephant are used in circuses, county fairs, roadside amusements, and Renaissance Festivals. I want to focus on the Renaissance Festival in this post, but for information on animals being used in circuses, click here.

Why Do People Abuse Animals?

It started last night when I was going through the Newsfeed on Facebook and I saw a post headline and picture about a dog that was abused so badly they said he screamed like a human being when they were approaching him to rescue him. The police officer involved in rescuing him was so moved by this that he has made it his mission to go after the abusers. That is as far as I got. I couldn’t open the post and read it. I was already breaking down. It was the first thing I thought of when I woke up this morning and again I was breaking down.

Most of my posts on Facebook are shared from my blog entries and I know not all of my family & friends are stopping and reading them as they scroll through their Newsfeed. Some people cannot handle seeing or hearing about animal suffering. I am not judging, I get it. I can barely hold it together.

I‘ve seen other images & headlines of elephants on chains, a guy throwing a brick at a dog, a tore up dog from a dogfight. It just goes on and on. Then I start feeling like it is all so overwhelming and I start wondering how I can be making any difference? There are so many animals suffering and I want it all to stop. I wonder if one day this will completely break my spirit.

A Dog On A Chain

This picture is heartbreaking!

Should you put a dog on a chain or not put a dog on a chain?

The word “chain” is in itself so negative. I think its acceptable if you put a dog on an extended leash, maybe one made out of small chains, that will keep them safe from running off if you don’t have a fenced in yard. If you have a fenced in yard, there should be no need. Continue reading

HELP PROTECT ANIMALS-they are God’s creatures. We are to care for them, not to harm them.

I received a letter in the mail today from “The Animal Legal Defense Fund” and as much as this is going to bring me to tears once again by typing this, this is some of what it said. Two men in Tennessee tortured a puppy for fun. The puppy died after 4 hours of suffering. They kicked her repeatedly until her ribs broke. One of the men stood on the puppy’s head, pushing her into the ground. They wired her mouth shut….tied wire around her neck….and hanged her from a tree, trying to choke her. Then stabbed her in the back with a knife.

The men’s punishment for torturing and brutally killing the innocent puppy was two years of probation and 200 hours of community service.

Would you call that justice? I wouldn’t! Continue reading
