Extinction Is Forever

    I have found that as I aged, I seem to be more aware of the world it what is going on in it, than I did as a younger person. I started paying attention to things that effected the world as a whole, instead of what effected just me.  For instance, the same week that Hostess announc

Blowing The White Tiger Myth Out Of The Water

How many times have we all heard the rhetoric of “White Tigers are a product of man, produced only by inbreeding” from well meaning nay sayers to big cats in captivity? For me, if I heard it once I have heard or read it a thousand times. It is even found in the Wikipedia o

A Burning Leopard

    I have been involved with all species of animals at one point in my life or another. I am pretty much used to seeing the atrocities of mankind inflicted upon those that cannot speak for themselves. I really thought up until two years ago, that I had heard and seen it all. That was
