Grey County | by Matt Hermiz  

Man said to have shot a migratory American robin while hunting wild turkeys

Taking aim at the wrong type of bird resulted in more than $1,500 in fines for a Grey County man.

Joe Stutzman of Chatsworth pleaded guilty in an Owen Sound court last Sept. 13 for hunting a migratory bird without a permit, and for discharging a firearm without due care and attention or reasonable consideration for people or property.

He was fined a total of $1,500 for offences under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and Migratory Birds Convention Act.

Also, he’s not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry says in a release, Stutzman was hunting wild turkey in Chatsworth, when he shot and killed an American robin.

A conservation officer heard the gunshot and attended the site.

An investigation found…

Petition: Angora Goats Are Being Abused for Fashion, But These Brands Still Use Mohair

Angora Goats Are Being Abused for Fashion, But These Brands Still Use Mohair

That mohair sweater might not feel so good if you know what it took to make it.

South Africa supplies 50 percent of the world’s mohair — the long, silky fibers produced by angora goats. This mohair is highly desired for its luster and sheen as well as the ability to both insulate from the cold winters and wick away moisture in the summers.

Recently, however, an undercover report has sheared bare the mohair industry for what it was. One full of animal abuse violations and needless cruelty.

The exposé revealed footage of workers “dragging goats by the horns and legs and lifting them off the floor by the tail, which could break their spines. Goat kids being shorn for the first time cried out in…

Could reviving Woolly-Mammoth genes fight the effects of global warming?

The Extinction Chronicles

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Woolly mammoths have been extinct for more than 4,000 years, but with new gene-editing techniques, they could help mitigate the effects of a modern problem: climate change.

Most of the hype so far has focused on bringing these shaggy beasts back to life using their permafrost-preserved DNA. But this time, scientists aren’t aiming for a “Jurassic Park” scenario — they’re not trying to bring back entire mammoths exactly as they were in the last ice age. Rather, they’re hoping to mingle some of the mammoths’ ancient genes with those of today’s Asian elephants (Elephas maximus), to increase the elephants’ tolerance to the cold, said George Church, a Harvard and…

Petition · New Zealand parliament. : Ban use of plastic bags in New Zealand by 2020 · Change.org

"OUR WORLD"

Petition · New Zealand parliament. : Ban use of plastic bags in New Zealand by 2020 · Change.org. Joseph McKenzie started this petition to New Zealand Parliament. and 5 others

Every single piece of plastic ever made, still exists. An extremely large amount of plastic bags will inevitably end up in our oceans, littering the floors and branches of our forests, killing both mammal and marine life alike. Plastic bags are responsible for the decline and extinction of thousands of species in New Zealand and around the world. It is hard to recycle plastic bags. Recycling may hold off some of the problem, but certainly does not eradicate it. By banning plastic bags in New Zealand we will be setting a global standard and example for the rest of this planet while saving it.

Plastic bags do not degrade in the marine environment. Plastic bags photo-degrade, meaning they break down…

Justice for Suman, the 6-year-old Elephant That Faces a Terrible Fate

by: Care2 Team
target: Government of Jaipur

5,048 SUPPORTERS – 10,000 GOAL
Suman never got a chance to be a real elephant. She was born into the notorious Moonlight Circus where elephants like her were forced to do ridiculous tricks to entertain the crowd. But then, it looked like she was saved. Because of Moonlight’s terrible reputation, it was barred from using animals in its performances.

Unfortunately, that isn’t where the story gets better. Suman was then sold to a family known for buying, renting and abusing elephants. When she was only 3 years old she was sent to work on a TV show that was so horrific animal rights activists had it shut down.

Now at 6 years old, Suman’s fate still is uncertain. According to activists the Khan family — Suman’s “owners” plan to train her so…

“Bear is doing well,” a Discovery Channel rep told PEOPLE Thursday. “He was running through the woods (as usual) and he ran into a branch that injured his eye. He went to the hospital and found that he had a scratched cornea. He will be fine.”

Bear is known as a daredevil on the show, so the injury definitely isn’t out of character for the “King of Extreme.”

President Trump’s Interior Secretary on Friday released a management plan to expand hunting, fishing and increase outdoor recreation opportunities on federal lands.

Secretary Ryan Zinke signed Secretarial Order 3356, six pages of marching orders to the sprawling Department of Interior citing federal law and a 2007 Executive Order from President George W. Bush designed to boost flagging “sportsmen conservation ethic” in the country. The move comes days after a five-year survey by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reported the number of hunters drop from 12.5 million in 2006 to 11.4 in 2016 although the general population rose by more than 30 million in the same period.
