Chester Zoo has uploaded video of the tender first moments of an Eastern black rhino giving birth to her baby calf.

Fara was born Jan 31 at 08:15.

Every birth is cause for great celebration but given that Eastern black rhino face a real threat of extinction our new arrival is even more significant. The calf is super important to the breeding programme in Europe and her arrival is another step towards sustaining a black rhino population which, in the wild, is being ravaged by poachers on an almost daily basis,” said Tim Rowlands the Curator of mammals at Chester Zoo.

In the wild there are thought to be less than 650 Eastern black rhinos remaining, pushing the species perilously close to extinction.

We put great effort into protecting black rhinos in the wild, supporting a number of sanctuaries across Africa. However, as the demand for rhino horn intensifies, poaching continues to become a bigger and bigger problem.

“We hope that, one day, we can put an end to this crisis once and for all,” Rowlands added.

As someone who loves animals but also loves humans, I am glad that efforts have been made to save this species.

But, I also wish society could work as hard to protect unborn babies targeted by “abortion poachers” who want to slaughter them in the womb.

(NaturalNews) NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of shooting all the farmers’ pigs under a bizarre new “Invasive Species Order” (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species.

PETA celebrates shark attack on human – disgusting !

PETA ‘Payback Is Hell‘ ad aimed at Florida shark attack victim causing feeding frenzy of outrage

A planned advertisement from the animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that implies a shark-attack victim deserved his injuries has had the effect of chum in the water for the group’s critics.

The proposed billboard features a great white shark biting into a severed human leg, with the jarring slogan, “PAYBACK IS HELL. GO VEGAN.”
But there is a catch: PETA hasn’t found a home for the ad. It is trying to put the advertisement up on Anna Maria Island in Florida, where a local man was mauled by a bull shark while spear-fishing Saturday.

“With sharks in the news, we thought it would be a good time to bring up the fact that sharks are not actually the most dangerous predators on the planet – we are,” PETA spokeswoman Ashley Byrne told the News.

Family dog kept watch over missing 2-year-old overnight

Posted in Animal Lovers, Animal Rescue on April 4, 2011 by saynsumthn

ELGIN, SC (WIS) – A missing 2-year-old boy in Elgin was found Saturday morning after Kershaw County deputies say the family dog kept him warm and safe all night.

Sheriff Jim Matthews said 22-month-old Tyler Jacobson was reunited with his family after he was found across the street behind a neighbor’s home when someone reported hearing crying in the area.

Tyler was reported missing around 8:00pm Friday from a residence on Ashley Creek Drive. Matthews said the boy’s mother, 25-year-old Jacklyn Marie Jacobson, and her boyfriend Jose Gloria told investigators Tyler went to get some juice and didn’t come back.

Kershaw County deputies used a bloodhound tracking team and a SLED helicopter with infrared capabilities, but called the search off around 12:30am Saturday. The search resumed around 7:45am, and the boy was found shortly thereafter. “Just thinking that a dog would watch a baby over the night, it’s kind of like a movie instead of real life,” said Emily DuBose, who lives in the house outside which the baby was found.

DuBose had no idea a story of devotion and survival was playing out right outside her door. “When we saw the choppers last night, we just assumed a criminal was loose, so I locked the door,” said Linda Harr, who also lives at the house. “The last thing I was gonna do is go outside.”

“I heard some barking early in the morning, but I didn’t really think about it, I just heard dogs barking,” said DuBose.

But during the night, Jacobson’s dog was keeping watch over his 22-month-old master in temperatures that got down to the 40s. “I just wish I’d have known, I could have warmed him up, called the cops,” said Harr.

Now, words of praise for the dog who likely helped save little Tyler’s life. “Since he belonged to them, he must have followed them the whole way, so that’s very special,” said Harr.

And so this story has a happy ending, thanks to the special bond of a child’s best friend.

Sheriff Matthews said the family was interviewed Friday night, and again on Saturday. He said the boy’s biological father is in the Army and stationed in Hawaii, and is currently on his way back to Kershaw County.
