Benetting is one of more than 5,000 companion animals affected by Hurricane Katrina, many of which are only now able to reunite with their owners who were displaced by the disaster. Pedro Garnica and his wife and son evacuated out of the hurricane zone with their dog to a shelter in Baton Rouge, but after two days there, Benetting was taken from them by local police, who cited the shelter's 'no dog' policy. "My wife and son cried so hard, and then I began to cry too," said Pedro Garnica of being separated from his dog.

Whaling season ends with more than 600 whales harpooned

Publication Date: 
Ma, 11/01/2005
Whalers had been hunting since April, the earliest start to the whaling season since Norway resumed commercial whaling in 1993, but they did not manage to harpoon the full catch allowance of 796 set by the Norwegian Government. This was despite two extensions to the deadline, originally set for the end of August.

Bad weather was blamed for low catches over the summer, but many boats continued to hunt. Whaling is now cheaper as boats are no longer required to have a human inspector on board to check boats comply with Norway’s whaling regulations.

Local animal groups have now evacuated at least 300 dogs from New Orleans to Houston, where the Houston SPCA is caring for them and another 500 are expected tonight. Many were smuggled into shelters and evacuation buses by desperate New Orleans refugees fleeing the hurricane disaster. With Baton Rouge swelling under pressure from the mass inflow of refugees, Houston is now becoming the staging area for these and other animal relief operations.

During natural disasters, animals are often lost or owners are forced to leave them behind during mandatory evacuations. Local animal groups, whose own facilities have been devastated or destroyed, have requested assistance to deal with the overwhelming situation. IFAW will be teaming up with Code 3, a 78-foot self-sufficient, mobile disaster response unit, and a team from United Animal Nations (UAN) to mount the emergency relief effort.

Poaching Remains Main Threat to Tibetan Antelope

Publication Date:

The Tibetan antelope is one of the flagship species of China’s Qinghai-Tibet, China&nbsp;Plateau and is highly endangered. By the mid-1990s its population had plummeted, from an estimated 2 million at the turn of 20th century, to merely 75,000 animals. Tibetan antelopes, also called Chiru, are hunted for their wool – considered the finest in the world -- which is woven into garments called Shahtoosh shawls.
