A Tribute To The Florida Bears

A Tribute To The Florida Bears

We Failed These Magnificent Black Bears

A Tribute To The Florida Bears – There are a few magnificent creatures who have iconic status in the animal world. The mighty blue whale can reach a length of 98 feet and weigh up to 180 tonnes. The elephant – the lion – the ape – the rhino – the wolf and the great white shark all engender a sense of awe in the beholder. But I venture to say that more children go to bed at night clutching a teddy bear than any combination of the aforementioned beings. Bears are a symbol of power – strength and love. In times past when a true hunter killed a bear to fulfil a human need – he honoured and thanked the animal for surrendering its life and he asked for forgiveness. Not so this day.

Camo-Cowards And The Intentional Slaughter Of Wildlife

The Sick Mentality Behind Deliberate Killing

Camo-Cowards And The Intentional Slaughter Of Wildlife – the Florida bear hunt – the first one in 21 years has (supposedly) ended with the deliberate murder of 295 bears in two days. Is it continuing in some areas of Florida? It has been reported that the first bear killed was a lactating female – meaning that her cubs are now alone – terrified and starving. Some cubs have also been killed. Who are the players in this mass killing spree?

The Christmas Wish Of The Black Teddy

THE CHRISTMAS WISH OF THE BLACK TEDDY

By – ROSEMARY WRIGHT

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN ON DECEMBER 12, 1979

 The Christmas Wish Of The Black Teddy – I wrote The Christmas Wish Of The Black Teddy in 1979. I was between jobs, short of discretionary money and it was Christmas. I had presents to buy for friends and family and I was more than a little worried about what to do. I thought about my predicament and decided to use my talent for writing – so I penned a story or poem for everyone.

The Suffering Of Arturo

The Suffering Of Arturo

The Suffering Of Arturo – For a fleeting moment in time he imagined himself diving into the frigid water. In his dream – he and his friend Pelusa scrambled out of the water and chased each other over the frozen Arctic tundra – their thick white fur sending water droplets flying into the cold, morning air – their feet strong and sure on the glacier ice.

World Animal Day – October 4, 2014

World Animal Day – October 4, 2014

World Animal Day – October 4, 2014 – Human beings have far more in common than not – but we tend to forget that in our constant striving for supremacy – we are right and you are wrong – greed – the pursuit of money and recognition – the need to dominate – corruption – the destruction of our environment by irresponsible corporations and absurd political posturing.

The Last 20 Years Of Your Life

The Last 20 Years Of Your Life

Take a moment to sit back, put your feet up and really think about the last 20 years of your life. If you are 50 years old – think back to your 30 year old self. Perhaps you were finishing up an advanced education degree. Maybe you were engaged or already married. Maybe you had children or were planning to start a family. Think about all the holiday celebrations you’ve enjoyed – birthdays – welcoming the new year – buying your first home or cottage – international travel – your kids turning 10 years old – a crisis with a parent – losing a job you valued and then finding a new career path – your kids becoming young adults and leaving home to lead their own lives. Maybe you had the challenge of an illness. Perhaps you survived a painful divorce and then found new love. A lot can happen in 20 years. Really think about what 20 years means!

Polar Bear Writes The Government

Endangered Polar Bears

Dear Government of Canada – I am a polar bear living in Canada’s north! Why don’t you call me Poley? It’s much harder to forage and hunt now that the ice is melting but we do our best. I have a bunch of bear friends – there are about 16,000 of us left. You allow 600 of us to be killed every year. I’ve lost some really good friends and family members over the years. I’m really not very good at math but I think we will all be dead in 25 years. Does anyone care but us?
