Anthony Marr’s CARE-7 tour blog #20 – Florida

Photobucket

It is 1.5 months from the much anticipated Animal Rights National Conference at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria VA (www.ARConference.org). Alex Hershaft, the chair of the conference, has assigned to me the following speeches (subject to change):

July 16, Friday, 10:30 am – Individual Activism (Camp, Corbett, Marr, Sikora)

Alex has also approved that in the Saturday evening awards banquet, a new painting by artist Catherine Garneau, based on my 1998 photo of the tigress Sita who lived in the Bandhavgarh National Park in India where I worked off and on for three years, but was later sadly poached, will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition.

Photobucket

Of note is the Saturday morning plenary speech (to the entire congregation of approximately 1000) to be shared with my friend Lt. Col. Robert Lucius of the U.S. Marines, host of my CARE-7 tour’s Monterey CA event, whom I recommended to Alex as a speaker. This is no mean feat, since almost no new speaker at the conference could immediately garner a plenary speech. Of course, I was only the door opener; it was Robert’s own impressive credential and exemplary work that won him the podium.

Before proceeding further, I have a disclaimer to make. It is against my nature to engage in internet drama, flame wars and specifically naming anyone in negative light, but this is an exception, and it is driven by the persons whom I will name, whose devious, unethical and slanderous acts of deceit against Catherine Garneau, one of the most honest and principled people I know, and against myself, and were meant for the eyes of the innocent public, has caused damage to the anti-hunting movement in general, and the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition in particular. It will become clear by the time you have reached the end of this blog.

The 1 pm starting time of the Motorcade, which has to be in the afternoon to prevent drawing away conference attendees from set morning programs, proved a problem, since the “March on Washington” was set for 10 am. The Motorcade and the March were originally designed to be the same event. Given nearly two-months’ lead time, I saw no problem changing the time of the March from 10 am to 1 pm to coincide with the Motorcade, so that the two could stay as one, and made an announcement to that effect. Unfortunately, the organizers of the March refused to change the time, and further interpreted my announcement as an effort to “subvert” the March. Further, I was accused of colluding with Alex Hershaft to set the time of 1 pm instead of 10 am for the same purpose, to which Alex wrote: “Anthony Marr, for whom I hold a great deal of admiration and respect, never discussed the march with me and had absolutely nothing to do with my reaction.” In spite of this exoneration, the subversion accusation has continued and even intensified to this day, so, with due regret, the Motorcade and the March will be two separate events. The Motorcade will be co-conducted with Peter Muller and Odette Wilkens, and joined by whomever conference attendees with cars who may want to join us. Upon arrival in Washington DC, the vehicles will be parked, and the participants will proceed on foot to lobby high-level legislators chosen by Peter and Odette. It will not cross-paths with the March, in spite of the further accusation that our intention was so that the Motorcade would arrive at the climax of the March to steal its thunder.

Another point of conflict with the organizers of the March, who are champions of the Anti-Crush movement which I and the Global Anti-Hunting-Coalition support, is regarding the two news bills HR-5092 and HR-5337. HR-5092 targets “crush videos” specifically (which depict small animals being crushed to death by women with their bare feet or stiletto shoes), which I and the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition do support, whereas the newer HR 5337, which is supposed to target ALL videos depicting cruelty against animals, but specifically exempts hunting videos (which do depict extreme cruelty against the hunted animals) as not being cruel, resulting from the intense pressure exerted by the powerful hunting lobby and the NRA, is not supported by the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition.

Here are two of the passages and associated comments:

[HR 5337 explicitly outlaws “depiction[s] of extreme animal cruelty,” and requires that such depicted conduct “must violate a criminal prohibition of intentional cruelty to animals.” This should substantially mitigate the concerns that hunting videos or other depictions of the treatment of animals that is criminal in some jurisdictions, but not cruel, might be included within the sweep of the statute.]

and

[This legislation targets a very narrow and specific set of behaviors we are trying to regulate, specially the depiction of extreme animal cruelty that appeals to a particular sexual fetish. The Animal Torture Prevention Act addresses this by requiring that a “depiction of extreme animal cruelty” appeal “to the prurient interest.” This clause focuses the legislation and effectively prevents this bill from prohibiting hunting videos, a concern the Court expressed in the Stevens opinion.]

Unfortunately, again, the organizers of the March interpret our not supporting HR 5337, regardless of our supporting HR 5092, to be an effort by the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition to undermining Anti-Crush, and the Stop-Crush website is rife with this blatantly unfair sentiment, tarring and feathering the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition and myself as being against the Anti-Crush movement, contrary to fact. But so be it. The Global Anti-Hunting Coalition by definition stands for the hunted animals, and there is no way we can accept a bill which openly condones hunting videos as not being cruel against the hunted animals. Quite on the contrary, hunting videos can depict even more extreme cruelty than crush videos, because whereas the crushed animals take a matter of minutes to die, some hunted animals take days, weeks, even months, to die a lingering and agonizing death.

Here is a collection of excerpts from hunting videos. Decide for yourselves whether extreme cruelty does not suffice the entire compilation.

At some point during the day, Damiano resigned, and posted in the Global Ant-Hunting Coalition site his letter of resignation. It was admittedly well worded, and did achieve the intention of its author. It made him look good. But another thing made him look not too good again in my eyes. He appointed Catherine as the new Vice President. Not that I did not have the same intention, but what if I did not? And what gave a resigned Vice President the power of appointing a new Vice president? In the very least, he violated organizational protocol. But I’m sure you could guess his real intention.

Enough said. If the anti-crush leaders are determined to treat the anti-hunting leaders and the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition as enemies, thus splitting the anti-cruelty movement, it is their choice. Let’s move on.

I arrived in Tampa on May 29, and gave a speech in the afternoon of the 30th at the Walsingham Park in whose lake alligators reside. It was organized by Sara Acord of the St. Petersberg Vegetarian/Vegan Meetup Group, who, along with her beau Mitch Day, also served as my lodging host, in whose house also live 3 dogs, 3 ferrets and an Abyssinian cat, and outside of which live another 3 cats who are semi-feral. Their dogs are vegan, and they make big pots of food for them – usually a kind of thick bean paste which, with a few drops of Tabasco sauce, actually tastes quite nice. Right from the start, they had asked me to raid their fridge whenever I wanted, but not until I had ingested a substantial amount of the paste did Mitch inform me that I had been gulping their dog food!

A detractor involved in the anti-crush vs anti-hunting spat, the same one who has tried to urge people against donating to the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition for funding my “expensive vacation tour”, has been hazing me that my vegan potluck speeches were worthless, a waste of my breath and the audience’s time. On the other hand, I regularly receive emails and messages in praise of them. Here is an example I received just yesterday:

From Molly Rooke – “I am glad you came to speak on hunting and climate change, and that I was able to attend, Saturday at the vegan potluck in Bedford. I wish I could have stayed longer to speak to you afterward and I meant to give you a donation for your work (sorry I don’t have much money, but I’m sure that any amount helps) so please… let me and others know how we can help support your efforts financially. Thanks for all you are doing for animals and the planet that supports us all.”

Photobucket

One of the people present at the Walsingham Park talk was Carole Baskin, CEO of the Big Cat Rescue, which I was to visit the next day, May 31, at 3 pm. Her reaction to my talk at Walsingham would be the true test of the impact of my speech.

Photobucket

Another was a 10 year-old boy named Spencer, whose reaction was to immediately seek a solution, which reminds me of me. After the talk, he came to me and asked whether “aerial algae” could do the trick to capture carbon from the atmosphere. I cannot think of any aerial algae in nature, but it is certainly a good idea to use plants as a CCS (carbon capture and sequestration) system. His mother was very proud of him.

May 31, Monday, 3 pm, I arrived at the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary on Easy Street, which harbors 20 species of cats, with no more than half of them was I familiar. Last time I was there, back in 2004, there was a witty slogan there saying “Life on Easy Street”. I pulled over at the entrance sign to take a pic of the Green Hornet next to it, and before I was done, a black truck with BIG CAT RESCUE painted on its door, and who but Carole Baskin in the driver’s seat. After the “photo op”, she led me through the sanctuary and gave me a guided tour fit for a dignitary.

The camera person conducted a stop-by-stop video interview of me, asking tough questions that only someone who has done the actual work can answer. We made no less than a dozen stops and the entire blitz lasted easily a hour and a half. They will process the raw footage into a mini-series and broadcast it in their network some weeks down the road. When the interview was done, she asked me if I would consider staying through the evening to give her staff and volunteers a talk. I was frankly a bit pooped due to the humid heat, and did not show immediate enthusiasm. She led me into an air-conditioned room, gave me a cold bottle of water, and left me to chill. After I had revived, she and Chris took me out again to shoot some casual walk-around footage for the mini-series after which she led my car to a separate build at the back of the 40 acre property where I’d be giving my talk. By 6:45, most of the people had assembled. I decide for a Q&A rather than a straight talk, and questions abounded. We did not wind up until 9 pm.

Photobucket

It was during my drive back to Largo when Catherine told me on the cell phone that Anthony Damiano has been badgering her all day and part of the evening, by skype and phone, denigrating me and trying to diminish me in her eyes, and it was during one of these skype sessions, with transcript to prove, when he attacked my character by saying to Catherine, not a close friend of his, “maybe he was talking to Alex to subvert the March for his cause”, by which Catherine was flabbergasted. And it was when I returned to my hosts’ place that I wrote my email to Alex, CCed to the inner circles of anti-crush and GAHC – no more than 8 people in all – asking him to testify to the fact that nothing of the kind happened. Almost immediately, Damiano furiously blasted me for launching a “public” smear campaign against him. Talk about adding insult to injury, and a two of clubs calling an ace of hearts black.

Photobucket

The next day, Carole released a blog about my visit to the sanctuary, which is blogged separately in my blogsite http://www.HomoSapiensSaveYourEarth.blogspot.com, but here it is again:

Anthony Marr Visits Big Cat Rescue during his CARE 7 Tour

Anthony Marr Met With Interns, Staff & Volunteers to Talk Tigers and Global Warming tonight at the Lion’s Lair Party Pavilion.

World renowned as the Champion of the Bengal Tiger, Anthony is on his 7th CARE tour. While in FL he wanted to be sure to visit Big Cat Rescue again and was gracious enough to let Chris film him on a wide range of topics including Tony the truck stop tiger, the plight of back yard tigers in America, poaching, tiger farming, canned hunts, lion meat on the menu, white tigers, the decline of lion populations, wild leopards and global warming. In the course of his film blitz through the sanctuary I asked if he would join us for pizza tonight and he rearranged his schedule to accommodate us. Due to the late nature of the event, we were only able to invite those who were working this afternoon, and I even missed a couple of people by just a few moments who had been working hard all day but had already gone home. Tonight was a rare treat for those left standing at the end of a long day.

For three hours Big Cat Rescuers got to hear about his adventures in India and get a first hand view of the magnificence and intelligence of cats living wild as well as all of the challenges they face because of the value of their skin, bones and organs. He shared stories of intrigue and suspense as poachers were stalked, captured and often right back on the street within hours. He brought the suffering of these cats to life in painting the struggle for survival that is shared by the big cats and the humans with whom they share dwindling resources. He separated the good from the bad and the corrupt from the dedicated in his captivating portraits of the politicians, law enforcement officials and conservation NGOs.

Anthony ended the night’s discussion with the topic that is the fuel behind his cross country trek: global warming. Despite being a physicist he plainly set out in laymen’s terms how it is that we are on the brink of disaster while the man on the street is still saying, “What global warming?” If you missed it tonight, you missed the simple analogy to a pot full of water and ice cubes, but you can be the interns who were there can explain it to you now. Or, you can read about it in Anthony Marr’s latest books “Omni-Science and the Human Destiny” and “Homo Sapiens! SAVE YOUR EARTH”. The most critical message that he brought to our awareness is that scientist now agree that the models they had currently predicted which gave Earthlings until 2040 to begin reversing the negative spiral we are on because of methane produced via the mass production of animals as food and our failure to implement green energy has now been shorted to the year 2013.

On June 1, Tuesday, I drove from Largo on the west coast of Florida to Indialantic on the east coast. The drive was about 4.5 hours, and I arrived in another Manhattan class apartment of Carole P, who took me to two exceptional places over the next two days.

Photobucket

The first, on June 2, is the Wild Horse Rescue Center on 4970 International Drive, Mims, FL, 32454, headed by Diane Delano, President. Being a horse-person since my birth (my Chinese surname Marr means “Horse”), and been an active horseman since my 20s, and being freedom-minded all my life, I am particularly interested in the wold horse and its treatment by humans, particularly the BLM (Bureau of Land Management). The Mustang is not a wild horse in the truest sense. It began as feral horses which were the descendants of the Spanish horse brought over from Europe in the Conquistador days. There was a breed of true wild horse in North America, but they were exterminated by the “native” people thousands of years ago. Still these Mustangs have lived in the wild for centuries, and have become truly wild in body, mind, behavior and way of life. And now, the cattle barons are taking over their land, and the BLM is doing their bidding, and the Mustang is being harassed, chased, cornered, corralled, captured and slaughtered, with only the lucky few being adopted. And adopting is what the Wild Horse Rescue Center is all about. But it is not easy to train a wild horse so that he is safe to handle and ride. And this is what the Wild horse Rescue Center is about.

Diane showed Carol and I the horses currently there for training and adoption, and they are mostly pony sized (14 hands) horses with lots of substance and bone, with hard feet, and of good conformation. In the training ring as we were watching was a young chestnut filly being gently led by the halter, and praised with every right move she made. I could see how tense she was, but not frightened. Just trying to understand what she was supposed to do, and resisting her flight response. She will loosen up by and by, and make a lovely equine companion for a girl. Diane showed us on her cell phone a pathetically thin horse which could hardly stand up to support his own meager weight, or lack there of. Then she showed us a handsome bay well muscled and proud of stance. “That’s him,” she said, with well deserve pride. If I had $125 on me, and I wanted a horse, I would have taken him away.

On June 3, Thursday, Carol, who has a Mazda MX5 Miata, drove my car, a Mazda MX6 Mystere, with me as passenger, to Fort Lauderdale to visit the SPCA’s Wildlife Care Center. When we arrived there, a rainstorm had just passed, and another was on the horizon.

Photobucket

And it was lunch time. So we were led by Director of Development Laura Gottlieb to a board room with a large table where we were served a vegan lunch. A few minutes into the lunch, I realized that I had left my cell phone in the car, so I excused myself and went out. While exiting the building a tall and slender middle-aged woman with flowing blonde hair and in business attire, entered the building while we were passing each other, we exchanged glances, and she smiled and nodded. I said, “Hi, I’m Anthony Marr.” “I know who you are,” she said, and entered the building. When I returned to the boardroom, she was seated at one of the chairs, and talking to Carol.

Photobucket

Laura introduced her to me as Sherry Slueter, the Executive Director. She is a supremely confident woman, speaking with great authority, and every word meticulously enunciated and every sentence superbly crafted. I was immediately impressed, and being usually the speaker in a group setting, I settled back and listened. She told us that she had spent 20 years as a Broward County Sheriff specializing in animal abuse, who, by retirement time just a year or two ago, had achieved the rank of Lieutenant. During her service, she all but revolutionized animal welfare enforcement. At one point, she related a dramatic event where she had to physically subdue a man twice her size, with some help from fellow officers, at the expense of several cracked ribs, as a result of which a new ordinance was instituted, without which it could not have been done. By then, my sense of humor could not be contained, so I said, looking at her intensely, “I have a serious question for you.” While she usually had a faint smile on her lips as she was speaking, her expression turned serious too. “Tell me,” I asked slowly, “was the episode staged?” Carol burst out laughing, and Sherry grinned and said, “Yes, with my broken ribs to show for it.” I began to explain that when I was physically assaulted by a hunter, and had 3 facial bones fractured, some hunters said that it was staged, by me, to garner attention. Sherry said, “I know all about that incident.” She had done her homework.

Photobucket

For a stretch, she talked about animal rights activism – from the law enforcement’s view point, and gave excellent advice to us as activists. Of course, she also talked about her experience with animals both an a law enforcement officer and as the executive Director of the Wildlife Care Center. I was highly impressed by her highly professional presentation, until, at one point, while talking about how they cared about the animals in the center, tears welled in her eyes, and she had to recomposed herself before carrying on. This one little unspoken interlude spoke volumes about her, and she won me over completely.

Photobucket

Photobucket

After spending well over an hour with us, Sherry left to attend to her duties, and Laura gave us a guided tour through the facilities. While the Big Cat Rescue Sanctuary was scenic and the Wild Horse Rescue Center was rustic, the Wildlife Care Center was state-of-the-art. With a fully equipped animal hospital, three resident vets, dozens of staff members and volunteers, holding areas, aviaries, the center takes in and releases up to 14,000 wild animals every year.

Photobucket

Photobucket

One of the staff’s titles was the releaser, about which I remarked that it must be the happiest job on the planet.

Photobucket

While leaving the Center, I said to Laura that I’d always felt ambivolent about the SPCA, but this Wildlife Care Center had changed my perception of it substantially.

On the morning of June 4, Friday, I began driving back to Largo, and, given that it is a non-event day, I took it slow and easy, think that it would be a day of relaxation. But in the evening, all hell broke lose. Around 10 pm, while the three of us – I (President), Catherine Garneau (Co-Vice-President) and Tia Caroline Tirrel (Co-Vice-President), were having our “boardroom meeting” on skype, One of us made an accidental discovery that cause all three of us to scream and shout. We were looking at the new site of our very active member Nick Dalzell Osh – Animal Rights Kentucky (ARK) – we noticed a new thread featuring a picture of Catherine, with the heading “GAHC VP Catherine Garneau suports HR 5337!” posted by, you guessed it, Anthony Damiano, and seconded by, you guessed it too, Ms. Marla Stormwolf-Patty.

Photobucket
Catherine Garneau, co-Vice-President of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition

Catherine was shocked. When she had recovered, our usually serene Catherine turned from shock to fury. “How DARE he!” she shouted. Tia was slightly lost, and asked Catherine to explain, who said, “My comment in support of the bill was entered when he asked me to. I did not look at the bill carefully and thought that it was HR 5092, which Anthony said he supported. But on second look, I saw that it was HR 5337, which we do not support. So I quickly, that is, within minutes, commented him back and asked him to deleted the comment, and I trusted that the matter was settled. Now, he is making a new posting of it, with me quoted to the contrary! This is the LOWEST OF THE LOW! At this point, there is nobody on Earth I despise more than this man!”

I went in there and wrote a comment and entered it into the thread, saying that Catherine definitely did NOT support the bill, and that this maneuver violated any and all rules of honesty and integrity. Within moment, the entire thread was gone. This site was created for Nick by Damiano. Obviously, he has control over it.

Within minutes, Catherine received a sarcastic email from Damiano’s sidekick Paul Fusch, “Incidentally, it’s so good to see that Cathy is publicly standing behind Gary Peter’s bill “1000%” ~ I applaud you, Cathy, and you can sure count on the Stop Crush Team to post this everywhere we can to let people know that someone in the G.A.H.C. group is doing the right thing :):) We love you, Cathy!!!”

Obviously, honesty is not their strong suit, and deception of the public to achieve their private end is an integral part of their strategy.

Without hesitation, Catherine began typing. Her keyboard sounded like a machine gun. When she was done, she posted what she had written in the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition site in Facebook. This is how it read:

“THE GLOVES ARE OFF! – Catherine Garneau June 5 at 1:44am
“It’s time to say publicity that GAHC EX-v.p. ANTHONY DAMIANO, MARLA STORMWOLF PATTY and PAUL FUSCH from stopcrush.org are targeting members of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition: Anthony Marr, Catherine Garneau and Tia Caroline Tirrel, to spread vicious lies and rumors for their own sick game of “let’s smear the organization that does not agree with us”. We have stated to them, not publicly, but within a tight circle of people from the two orgs. that the latest bill HR5337, cannot be supported by GAHC due to it’s omission of protection to hunted animals. Once this was stated, they launched VICIOUS ATTACKS against Anthony Marr. This is a man that puts his life at risk on a daily basis to defend animals that are cruelly brutalized by hunters. He has been horribly attacked, as have Tia and myself (Catherine) in a similar manner. I urge anyone reading this to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL where these three are concerned. They are people who were befriended and loved and turned and stabbed us in the back.

Anthony Marr, President, Tia Caroline Tirrel and Catherine Garneau the new co-Vice Presidents of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition

The responses came in hard and fast, well into the wee hours of the night, dozens and dozens, all in favor, all infuriated, all agreeing that this was the most unethical act of deceit within the AR community in recent memory.

Following are some excerpts of the dozens of abusive emails flooding our inboxes from Anthony Damiano, Marla Stormwolf-Patty and Paul Fusch:

“… (Anthony Marr) may have called Alex recently to subvert the March for his cause.” – Anthony Damiano, may 31, 2010
[“Anthony Marr, for whom I hold a great deal of admiration and respect, never discussed the march with me and had absolutely nothing to do with my reaction.” – Alex Hershaft, Animal Rights Conference, June 2, 2101]

“Anthony Marr is acting like an ASS.” – Anthony Damiano, May 31, 2010.

“… you should do something else with your life because you will not stop hunting. What you are doing, it isn’t working.” – Anthony Damiano, June 1, 2010.

“You aren’t as intelligent as you think.” – Anthony Damiano, June 1, 2010.

“Mr. Marr, you are still performing like a circus clown.” – Anthony Damiano, June 2, 2010

“… obviously we women dont (sic) count. Is your respect for women that low??” – Marla Stormwolf-Patty, June 2, 2010.”
[“After you left, it was a little upsetting. In the words of my mom, we ‘felt like our best friend was leaving’. And I know that might sound crazy since you weren’t here very long, but we all enjoyed having you here so much. Well, I have to get going. There is a lot to do today. I hope you have a great day though and the rest of the tour is just as great. We all miss you. Talk to you soon hopefully, and take care!” – Abbie Daigle, June 5, 2010.]
[… You are a wise man and no doubt will hold your integrity….You and I go wayyy back and one thing I always know 100% is if I ever truly needed you, you’d drop what you are doing and come to my rescue. Try not to let any of this ruin your fight. :)] – Rebecca Monaghan, June 5, 2010.]
[By the way, both new co-Vice-Presidents of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition – Tia Caroline Tirrel and Catherine Garneau – are women, by my appointment. – Anthony Marr, June 6, 2010.]

“… there hasn’t been one single piece of information regarding the benefits of changing abusers’ hearts with a vegan potluck…this tour is obviously about you, and nothing more. Everyone knows it, I know it, and you know it.” – Paul Fusch, June 3, 2010.
[“Hi Anthony, Thank you so much for coming to our meetup and enlightening all of us on all your knowledge of government pro hunting & global warming. I wish the world could hear your lecture all at once. Let’s get you on live chat soon. I know many that would love to hear your message and want to get involved. Drive safe & …look out for the deer!” – Evlin Ⓥ Lake, June 3, 2010]

“You are either a liar, or you are just plain stupid.” – Paul Fusch, June 3, 2010.

“Anthony, despite your physics credentials your reponse (sic) was really stupid.” – Paul Fusch, June 3, 2010.

“…find something to do over there besides just working your tail to the bone sending him on an expensive vacation tour around North America.” – Paul Fusch, June 3, 2010.

“I am so disgusted by the mere thought of who you are as a human being that I am ill when I see your name in my email.” – Anthony Damiano, June 3, 2010.

Thank you, Mr. Damiano, Mr. Fusch and Ms. Stormwolf-Patty, for showing us what abusive people you are.

4 thoughts on “2010-06-06 – Anthony Marr’s CARE-7 tour blog #20 – Florida

  1. I posted this is a bulletin yesterday but I see it was not in it's entirety and its excellent!It's hurts me because it seems many just give up on our wildlife even though the death of these beautiful forest animals suffers just as much sometime EVEN MORE and in LARGE numbers. In deer hunting alone over 6 million die a horrible death for sports and trophy every year but sadly it's protected by the NRA and the hunting industry. Rather then these people who supposedly was part of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition attacking us why could they not have exposed hunting cruelty along with crush? Is it because they want CRUSH to win so badly they did not want to upset the hunting industry? What cowards. CRUSH is going to be an easy win because just about everyone is fighting to stop it even non ARA and meat eaters so they have nothing to worry about yet the hunted animals will continue to suffer because people like Damiano gives up so easily. I thank God for Anthony Marr begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting who does not give up and will continue to fight no matter the danger and no matter how hard it is because one day anti-hunters will prevail. Beautiful photos BTW.Much love and thank you !

  2. The Humane Society Wildlife Center sounds like a very good place and director. Good luck on your tour. Too bad about the problems with some of the people involved in the anti-crush videos.

  3. Anthony, the Wildlife Care Center has it's own wildllife ambulances too. I hope you saw a few of my rescues there. John, and Cory (who used to work there), have come out many times. I live on a lake where ducks constantly have hooks embedded from careless fisherman who are not supposed to fish here in the first place. Some of the wildlife … See Moreconsisted of an Ibis with a broken wing, a whooperwhil with a injuries. pelicans with torn bills, and orphaned raccoons. Now lately turtles are showing up near the medians in the street. They are unable to go over the curb and get stuck there helplessly trying to climb it. I have to wonder if developement hasn't interferred with their instinctual egg laying spot. Could that be why?

  4. Anthony, It's always exciting to read your blog and tag along on with you this virtual journey across America. With each new installment I find myself enthralled and hanging on every word and photo. This blog is multifaceted in that your journey of peace is there, as always, but so is this reminder of what we have been up against lately. Is it a lesson? A challenge? I wish I could find some "positive" to pull from this negative experience…Maybe down the road we will see it. But, for now, we just focus on the goals and keep on going. you are still our hero and we travel on with you, in spirit, always.Love,Catherine
