Littlefoot, a grizzly yearling, has been released back into the wild near Cranbrook, BC. He was found this spring severely underweight after being orphaned prior to hibernation last fall. After being cared for by the Northern Lights Wildlife Society (NLWS, www.wildlifeshelter.com) since June, Littlefoot has gone from a scrawny 28 pounds to a hearty 98 pounds. He was released yesterday away from human activity near where he was found. Littlefoot has been fitted with a satellite collar and will be monitored for the next 18 months.

Continuing to challenge the irrational badger cull

Fri, 08/22/2014

On Thursday 21st August another chapter of the infamous badger cull saga in England began to unfold.

I, and many others, went to the streets to witness it first-hand.

With the resumption of the pilot culls in Gloucestershire and Somerset around the corner, a fresh legal challenge against them was heard in the Royal Court of Justice, beginning what could become a critical milestone in the long and arduous anti-badger cull journey.
