Deer may have bowl stuck on its head
\ By BRUCE A. SCRUTON

STANHOPE ­ Usually “living in a fish bowl” means no privacy with people all around, all the time.Unfortunately, a white-tail deer could use some people around it. The animal appears to have a fish bowl stuck over its head.The last week in March, students at the Valley Road School talked about seeing a deer with a bowl on its head. Then adults began seeing the deer when it came out of the woods at the back of the school.“I haven’t seen it yet,” school principal Clifford Burns said on Tuesday, “but our head custodian has seen it.”A teacher who asked that her name not be used said students have made assisting the deer a project, discussing with teachers ideas on how to get help and what kind of help is needed.“Someone suggested getting pictures, so a couple of students used a cell phone to get a picture,” she said. The idea was to present the picture to the newspaper to bring attention to the deer’s predicament. Because the picture was taken with a cell phone camera, it is not very clear and would not reprint well. But it does show a deer with something over its head big enough to come almost to its shoulders. The item looks like a clear spacesuit helmet from a 1970’s science fiction thriller but its makeup, either glass or clear plastic, can't be determined.The deer appears to be staying in the area between the Valley Road School and Lenape Valley Regional High School, a five-minute walk through woods. Stanhope police said they have not taken a formal report on the deer, but are aware of the animal’s location. The teacher said she has talked directly with the borough’s animal control officer who acknowledged he has been told of the deer’s plight, but said there is little he can do since the process would require at least a tranquilizer gun.In an e-mail to the New Jersey Herald, another teacher said students are traumatized by seeing the deer, although Burns said he doesn’t get that sense. “I’m with them and I wouldn’t say they are traumatized. Some are worried, sure.”Darlene Yuhas, a spokeswoman for the state Division of Fish and Wildlife, said conservation officers and wildlife technicians have been alerted to the problem and are looking into whether there is anything they can do.

Philippines. Reporting Animal Cruelty. Emergency Numbers. RA 8485.

Because I belong to an group of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines, I can read the numerous discussions between group members and people who, seems to me, just signed up to make an urgent plea for help. There were two this week who begged for assistance concerning two dogs who were tied up under rain and sun with no food nor water. One was described to be on the verge of a heat stroke. The images that filled my mind disturbed me immensely, but I am also encouraged at the same time. There is a growing number of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines and ordinary citizens are beginning to reject animal cruelty, willing to take personal action against it. Just from this website, I can see from the visitor data that many are seeking information on how to report animal cruelty in the Philippines. You can find my previous post on the subject HERE . Keep in mind that your complaint has legal standing via the Philippine Animal Welfare Act which is also known as the RA 8485 .

Tampa, Florida. Animal Abuse. Five Dogs Neglected. November 2008.

Oh, I'm sorry. Have I introduced you to this nice couple over here? World, meet Wilmer Fernandez (34)and his wife Aixa Rodriguez (32). They live in Tampa, Florida with several children plus FIVE starving and abused dogs. The news reported that three of the dogs were tied up in the backyard with a leash that was too short to give them any room to exercise their muscles while two of the five dogs, boxer and dachshund, hadn't seen a veterinarian at all. One of the five was near death. A dog named Casper , according to the officers, was so sick that they could not tell what breed he was. All dogs were found to be hungry and thirsty. If on November 30, an investigator didn't coincidentally see an emaciated dog in the backyard of 12315 Cambridge Ave ., where Fernandez and Rodriguez live, these dogs would have died a very cruel death. When questioned, the couple argued that they did not have the money to properly care for the dogs. Well, yeah, how could they afford vet care when
