Experts are currently testing farmed Salmon to ascertain if this process is the reason that roughly half of them are hard of hearing .. I used to fillet loads of farmed salmon every day and there were definitely some 'weirder than others' looking ones around that area of their heads ..

Fox cubs filmed 'being put into hounds' kennels'
By Tom Symonds Home Affairs correspondent

VIDEO

Footage has been passed to the BBC which appears to show fox cubs being put into the kennels of hunting hounds allegedly to train the dogs to kill.
The video, filmed at the South Herefordshire Hunt kennels, then shows apparently lifeless bodies of two fox cubs being removed and dumped in a bin.
Police are investigating the footage and the animals' bodies. Two men and a woman were arrested earlier in June.

South Herefordshire Hunt has suspended a paid huntsman but refused to comment.
The Masters of Foxhounds Association said an independent inquiry, led by former Court of Appeal judge Sir John Chadwick, would take place into "conduct which suggests breaches of the association's rules".
The South Herefordshire Hunt's kennels, situated at its headquarters, have been closed.

The video, taken with hidden cameras positioned outside the kennels, show four live fox cubs kept in a cage.
The Hunt Investigation Team, which campaigns against fox hunting, secretly filmed two of the foxes alive inside the cage at night.
Later the cameras picked up a man removing them using a noose and taking two of them, one at a time, into the kennels nearby. Seconds later, the hounds inside can be heard barking.
A whooping noise, which sounds as though it is being made by a human, can also be heard. The Hunt Investigation Team claims this was to "call the hounds on" to attack the foxes.
On each occasion, the man emerges with a fox's apparently lifeless body and puts it in a bin.

Later footage shows the bins being taken away. However, before then, the activists had retrieved two fox cubs' bodies from the bins.
One of the investigation team, who asked to remain anonymous for her safety, said: "When our investigators took those fox cubs out, one of them was disembowelled, one of them had multiple bite wounds.
"Our feeling is that they were fed live to the hounds."
The animals' bodies have been passed to the police.

The Hunt Investigation Team and the League Against Cruel Sports said they were increasingly concerned about activities allegedly used to support illegal hunting.
They say fox hounds are still being taught to kill young foxes through a practice known as "cubbing".

Since the hunting ban, they are less likely to encounter foxes and it is claimed some hunts have a problem with their hounds attacking animals other than foxes.
The ban on hunting with hounds, introduced in 2005, made it illegal to intentionally pursue foxes with a pack of dogs.
However unintentional kills are not banned. It is claimed some hunts deliberately engineer situations where foxes are killed.

Chief executive of the League Against Cruel Sports, Eduardo Goncalves, said: "The hounds won't naturally kill foxes so they must be taught to do so and this footage exposes the gruesome training secrets of hunts in the UK."

The campaigners also say so-called bagged foxes are encouraged to breed in areas where there is no hunting, and then deposited close to the hunt so they can be pursued.
The BBC was shown a so-called artificial earth in another part of the country where the League Against Cruel Sports claimed piping and paving slabs had been used to create tunnels for foxes.
A saucepan nearby appeared to provide a source of water to drink.
Mr Goncalves said such constructions "blew away the myth that fox hunting has got anything to do with controlling the fox population - this is a cruel sport, pure and simple".

However, the Countryside Alliance said that historically gamekeepers routinely encouraged foxes to breed in specific areas so that their numbers could be more easily controlled.
In relation to the Herefordshire footage, Countryside Alliance chief executive Tim Bonner said if the allegations were proven, the activities shown had "absolutely no place in hunting".

Those arrested are on bail while police investigate alleged unnecessary cruelty to an animal. The BBC understands one is a paid huntsman.

The footage does not include evidence the South Herefordshire hunt is involved in illegal hunting, as defined under the 2004 Hunting Act.

Two Indian students have been arrested and released on bail for throwing a dog off a rooftop in the southern city of Chennai (Madras).

There was massive social media outrage after a video they made of the incident went viral in India.

The dog was found alive, injured and unable to walk but still wagging her tail, animal rights activist Shravan Krishnan told the BBC.

The fact that the students have already been released has also caused anger.

"Those criminals have come out on BAIL. This is how 'strong' the animal welfare laws are. With video evidence and so much of public outrage we couldn't remand them even for one day . We are extremely disappointed and it's a 'Black Day' for Animal Welfare in India," Mr Krishnan posted on his Facebook page.

However, the laws they have been charged under carry a maximum jail term of two years for "maiming or injuring" an animal.

The men were identified as students of the Madha medical college by other students after social media users had shared the video across networks in an attempt to find them. ...

California pet owner arrested after Chihuahua tests positive for Meth

FONTANA, Calif. – A 21-year-old Southern California man has been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty after his pet Chihuahua tested positive for methamphetamine, police said Monday.

Isaiah Nathaniel Sais of Fontana brought his Chihuahua, named Jack Sparrow, to an emergency center in Upland on July 5, telling the veterinarians the dog had ingested the drug after finding it in his house.

On arrival, the dog was in danger of dying, suffering from convulsions, seizures and an irregular heartbeat, veterinarian Dr. Allison Pope said.

When the drug-test results came back positive, Sais reportedly declined treatment for his dog and left the building, against Pope's advice.

Animal Services went to Sais's house shortly after this and seized the Chihuahua, who they say they found in a state of neglect. ...

Spaniel 'thrown from car on A38 was stolen from a nine year old boy'
By maxc73 | Posted: September 02, 2016

The spaniel believed to have been thrown from a car on the A38 was stolen from a nine year old boy, it has been claimed.
Police were called to the services near Kennford in Devon at about 2pm yesterday after an initial report of a dog being thrown from a vehicle on the A38.
When police arrived, the dog, a King Charles Spaniel, was found injured in the area with suspected broken legs.

Katie Head on Facebook:
"This dogs belong to my nephew he is 9 years old and has had her for 3 years. She was taken from the bottom of our home today unaware. She is a very loved and looked after little girl.

"The vets are doing all they can for her. She is very much wanted by us all and we want karma for these sick people who did this. Words can't describe how upset we are."

Also commenting on the post was Deborah Powell who told of how she discovered the dog.
She said: "I was the lady who stopped and got the little girl off the road. She was petrified and at the time had back legs problems and jaw damage.
"She was extremely still but distressed. I managed to calm her (and myself eventually) until the police arrived.
"I would like to thank the operator on 999 who took my initial call (poor lady) , the two sensitive officers who were fantastic and came quickly to me.

"I truly hope the reason for the dog appearing on the carriageway is discovered ,and if what I was shouted out when I picked the dog up from the middle of the carriage way is true the scum are caught on a potential slip road located camera, but I didn't not see anything but the dog in the road.

"I am truly amazed that so many drivers managed to avoid this poor girl as some 20-30 cars involved it could of been so.much worse for all of us."

Meanwhile a Just Giving page has been set up by well-wisher Michelle Greenaway aiming to raise £1,000 towards the poor pooch's vets bills.
At the time of writing, £589 had already been raised and to donate click here.
If anyone has any information that can help police call 101 quoting log number 397 for the 1st of September.

A caged leopard died when it was set on fire by a mob hours after it had killed a girl in India's Gujarat state.

Eight-year-old Nikita Vasava was on her way to a farm on Wednesday in Vadigam village when the leopard attacked her.

The leopard was trapped in a cage, but angry villagers set the cat on fire.

Leopards and other big cats have been known to stray into populated areas, and conservationists have warned that such confrontations may increase as humans encroach on animal habitats.

Forest official RS Gadhvi told the BBC's Ankur Jain that forest workers had trapped the leopard hours after the girl was killed. ...

About 1,800 day-old 'vulnerable' chicks dumped in field
Video:

Up to 1,800 "vulnerable" day-old chicks have been abandoned in a field in Lincolnshire, sparking an RSPCA investigation.
Officers of the animal welfare charity were called after the chicks were left in a field near Crowland on Friday.
Insp Justin Stubbs of the RSPCA said: "I have never seen anything like it; it was just a sea of yellow. And the noise was unbelievable."

He said some birds were dead but most "did not appear to be suffering".
"For someone to dump these vulnerable chicks is unbelievable," he added.
There were between 1,500 and 1,800 chicks dumped, of which about 30 were dead or dying, the RSPCA said.
Some of the birds had to be humanely put down.

Insp Stubbs said: "These chicks were just all huddled together, just a mass, a writhing mass of cheeping yellow fluffy balls, where they shouldn't be, in conditions they should not be out in.
"The sick ones sadly had to be put to sleep. They were literally dying of exposure.
"I've never known anything so ridiculous. We get a lot of animals dumped in a lot of numbers, 80 here, 100 there, of mice, guinea pigs, rabbits.
"But 1,800 chicks, I'm never going to get over the number and the vulnerability of these particular animals."

It is not yet known if the chicks came from a nearby commercial producer or if they were abandoned by someone else.
People in the area helped round up the birds into boxes and a breeder collected the survivors and took them back to his unit.
The RSPCA said the chick producer was co-operating with its investigation.

A Las Vegas couple have been arrested for torturing and killing a woman's beloved cat.

Approximately 6 weeks ago, Nia Wulkan rented a room in her home to the couple, identified as 20-year-old Immanuel Church and 21-year-old Denise Eddines.

Wulkan asked the couple to care for cats and dogs after a family member became ill and her help was needed.

When she came home on Feb. 23, the couple told her that they had to kill one of Nia's cats. The police were called to the home after Nia and her son, Zane, began fighting with the couple.

After police arrived, Church confessed that he killed the cat named Spunky. Eddines also confessed to helping harm and kill the cat.

Church told police the cat began hissing and pawing at him and his girlfriend while they were watching television in Nia's room.

The couple kicked the cat out of the bedroom, but say that the cat began attacking Eddines when she went to the kitchen to get food.

The couple became convinced that the cat was a demon and the other cats could also be demons. They began devising a plan to get rid of the cat. ...

Rhino shot dead by poachers at French zoo

Poachers have broken into a French zoo, killing a four-year-old white rhinoceros and sawing off its horn.

Keepers found the dead animal, named Vince, in the African enclosure of the zoo at Thoiry, west of Paris, on Tuesday morning. It had been shot in the head and its large horn removed with a chainsaw.

And when the last rhino is killed for its horn and the potency powder runs out, the buyers will realise they never needed it anyway because it didn't work, and I hope they feel like complete morons. Same goes for those who order the tigers slaughtered.

It's hard to believe even the dregs of society we share our world with
today would stoop so low, SCUM.

Dog-fox attack 'deliberate and cruel'
Johnny O'Shea BBC News Online
Posted at 13:38

Two men who set a dog on a fox and shared a film of the attack on Facebook have been sentenced.

Jack Crocker, 41, of High View Farm, Chacewater, and Robbie Long, 21, of Lower Tolgullow Vean Farm, Redruth, have been given suspended sentences after pleading guilty at Bodmin Magistrates' Court.

The court heard Long filmed the animal being attacked for two minutes, and then shared it on Facebook, meaning it came to the attention of the RSPCA. The fox died after the attack.

Judge Diana Baker said: "The fox went on to the land voluntarily. He [Crocker] had the right to protect his animals and to dispatch the fox humanely.
"The DVD clearly shows him encouraging the dog to attack the fox. Most concerning there were howls of laughter during the two minutes.
"This action is deliberate and cruel."

Crocker has been given an eight-week sentence, with Long getting six weeks, both suspended for one year.

Can we not chase their fat little bodies across fields with foxes? I can just imagine their red little faces as they clamber over gorse bushes, wishing that they hadn't supped so much brandy. They can toot toot their silly little trumpets too if it offsets some of their sheer terror of being ripped apart.
