(CNN)The suspects documented their kill in graphic photos — grinning near slumped over carcasses, posing with a decapitated elk head and taking a selfie with animal blood splattered over one of the alleged poacher’s face.
The Discovery personality revealed that he had to make a trip to the emergency room on Monday after an injury on Instagram, sharing photos of his hospital bracelet and eye patch to worried fans.
“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.
“The more people we can get outdoors, the better things…

WestJet Lives Under a Rock, Still Supports SeaWorld | Save Animals
WestJet—the second-largest airline in Canada—still sells SeaWorld tickets and tours.
We’d like to think that it somehow didn’t know SeaWorld confines intelligent animals to tiny concrete tanks, drugs them, and tears their families apart … but it does know, because PETA told it, and also … Blackfish came out four years ago.
OLD newsflash: Orcas at SeaWorld swim in endless circles and break their teeth gnawing on the enclosures in desperation. Dolphins are impregnated, sometimes forcibly after being drugged. Really not sure where the confusion about whether or not to support this abusive company is coming from.
Most Canadians don’t want to see marine mammals languishing in captivity. That’s why, after years of public protests, the Vancouver Aquarium agreed in early 2018 to stop imprisoning dolphins and whales.
SeaWorld still subjects 21 orcas, more than 100 other dolphins…

Orcas aren’t ours to use.
They aren’t ours to force to perform tricks or to confine to tanks that can never compare to their homes in the wild.
Orcas at SeaWorld—some of whom were trapped and stolen from their families in the ocean—are miserable. Instead of swimming as far as they want in open seas, they can only swim in endless circles in tanks that, to them, are the size of a bathtub. They languish in chemically treated water, are forced to breed, and are viewed as money-making machines.
Tell SeaWorld that orcas are #NotOurs and that they belong in more natural seaside sanctuaries, where they won’t be forced to perform tricks…

Humans care for the taste of blood more than they care for animals.
Before the Armory came into being, I was publishing Notes on my Facebook profile which I called political grenades, weapons to be wielded in the war for animal rights. Those modest apothegms and observations have grown to over two thousand grenades and articles.
In addition to regular articles, the Armory has begun publishing Politically Incorrect, an ongoing, daily stream of grenades that I hope will be shared extensively.
Most will be provocative, all will be irreverent, many seditious, and each will be designed to hit people upside the head.
The purpose of the Armory is to challenge people to think, to question what they believe, to weigh what they value.
To question authority, society, law, government, religion, politics, and their own worldviews.
I believe the Armory to be the most radical and incendiary blog for universal rights…

This MMA Fighter Trains by Throwing Cats. He Should Be Banned From Competing.
by: Care2 Team
target: International Mixed Martial Arts Federation
56,109 SUPPORTERS – 60,000 GOAL
Albert “Machete” Duraev is the world’s 59th best Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) middleweight but despite his title and muscular physic it seems he would rather pick on helpless little cats.
Earlier this month a video hit the internet showing “Machete” and a friend (also assumed to be an MMA fighter) tossing a grey cat back and forth more than 10 times while “training.”
By the end of this cruel game of feline catch, Duraev, 29 and his fellow cat tosser were throwing the poor cat so far and high that it was wildly doing flips in the air. The whole ordeal looks terrifying and the cat was helpless to do anything to get away.
People are outraged that this bully and his friend…
