Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!
Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.
Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!
Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!
Fantastic white wolves - PHOTOSHi!
Nobody caughed the kiriban?
What a pity
Will, will, where are you?
I do not mean any guy (although Will Riker is kind of cute ), but my own will - I can not get into losing weight again, although I now have the perfect chance to continue! I hate my weak will so much, how comes that I can not kick myself to continue, especially when I see it IS possible? :/ nah, I am so angry at myself. Go, stupid Woxys! There are still 20 kilos of fat which wait to be removed.
Mhhhhhm, I really need to start, as even the current state makes me feel much happier than the state a year ago.
Sorry for talking about this issue a lot, it is not easy, although I have already managed to lose some 20 kilos. And now other 20 should go away! It is just hard, because yes, it is nice I lost so much, but I am still so terribly overweight I have so many motivation clothes, but I obviously need a big kick to continue. GOOO, blonde, go but thank you for your support, you are awesome.
ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!
Kiriban was caught and the winner will be featured soon
I also passed all your comments and compliments (on the last journal's photos) to my parents, they were very pleased and thanked you so thanks!
This weekend I spent in mountain and I visited one of my favourite ZOOs, Dvur Kralove nad Labem. I was a bit disappointed that they moved cheetahs (I did not see them at all), because this ZOO was very good for taking photos of them. They also moved fennec foxes from very photographer friendly enclosure which allowed the foxes to enjoy some sun light into a nocturnal indoor pavilion which is very dark and you can watch the foxes only from above, so I am afraid I lost this place for fennec photos I also did not manage to take good photos of baby tigers and baby leopard although I tried a lot. It seems that my lens refuses to focuse, which scares me I admit I could take some 70 000 photos with it, but... do not die, 55-250 IS! I can not be without photography!
X-mas - being commercial :) fox, wolves - PHOTOSHi people!
kiriban winner will be featured next time
Today I want to be commercial
A bit more than 1 month until Christmas - time to announce my stuff
I really think some of those might be nice gifts - especially when it comes to print/gifts, which are not only originals with animal photos, but also USEFUL! Last year, I used donated points to order some of my stuff from DA, because I wanted to know the stuff I sell. I got 6 mugs and I was amazed with quality - I use them on daily basis and they are so cool! And I got also a calendar - and again, I can say the calendar's quality made me really happy, photos are sharp, colours are vivid and the format of calender allows you to note your own stuff into it
So I am definitely not ashamed to offer my stuff - I believe it can really make people happy
In this journal, I at first feature some of the stuff I sell - then I post a photo to show you, how those mugs really look like. The last photo set will show you, how d
Snow is here - wolves on snow - PHOTOSHi!
The first snow came - it was very thin layer, much less than 1cm, so it did not survive the night, but it still pleased me
It inspired me to post some photos of wolves on snow - those shots are quite old
Wohoo, this number of pageviews? thanks people, it looks nice - I wonder if I can make it to 1 000 000 until the end of 2012! it would be awesome
Thank you + kiriban + zoo news + zoo PHOTOSHi!
At first, thank you for supporting Allerlei and her photo - not only her photo will be included in a calendar, but she won, her photo had by far the most "likes"! thank you for helphig her - the calendar with her shot will be sold by ZOO Bratislava and the money will go to the construction of brand new wolf exhibit the ZOO is probably a bit poor, so it needs to get all the money first before it starts building. So such calendar might be a nice help! I can not wait - wolves now have very small, old cage, because the ZOO got them by mistake and had no proper place for housing them
At second, I announce a new kiriban - it is 922 222 and it is quite close. No chance to get 1 milion pageviews this year, but you have an apportunity to win a feature just catch it and send me a printscreen via note no feature for porn or animal cruelty
At third, there are some big changes in ZOO Brno - right now, it is building an exhibit for Komodo dragons! just
:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,
I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin
Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!
I went to my beloved ZOO Olomouc to photograph animals yesterday - I needed a break from the thesis writing.
I spent hour or maybe more with my favourite wolf subspecies - Iberian wolves. They were very active and even aggresive, snapping their jaws and snarrling a lot. One of them tried to catch a crazy rodent. It was fun and I got many photos for you
But the bad news - fennec fox got a new light in their enclosure. It is a red light and it TOTALLY does not allow you to photograph, because the specific light ruins the texture of the animal's fur and there is no chance to get any photo I am sad about it, I loved this place for fennec photography now it has been lost... in ZOO Dvur Kralove, they put those foxes into very dark indoor exhibit, so this place is also lost and in Prague, you never see them... Hm... I am a bit sad about it, I would miss those little guys
I also definitely need a new lens. My current one had troubles to focuse yesterday and I could not take a s
Kiriban is really close + wonderful animals - FOTOHi people
Ok, kiriban is really close - click here www.woxys.deviantart.com to catch my 933 333 pageviews send me a printscreen as a proof via note to win a feature. No feature for animal cruelty or porn, ok?
All those photos were taken in my beloved ZOO Olomouc
Hear Our Pleading CriesMarch 18, 2007
We cannot speak human words
But our fear is just like yours
Our pleading cries are not heard
And our plight is ignored
We have no rights
We have no voice
We suffer our plights
We have no choice
Living basics are all we need
We can't get these on our own
Won't you notice that we plead
With our eyes and our moans?
We're used for experiments, harvested for fur,
Displayed for show or slaughtered for meat
Please hear our imploring squeaks, barks, and purrs
Our pleading neighs, squeals and desperate bleats
If we could shed human tears
Would you notice that we suffer?
Would you alleviate all our fears?
Would our lives be less rougher?
We hope today you understand
That our treatment is unfair
We helplessly await your helping hand
We plaintively ask for your loving care
Show us the human in "humane"
Don't settle on sympathy as your reaction
Stop the afflictions and the pain
Get involved and take some action!
Lives Fur SaleWhy were we brought to this evil lair?
Where the smell of death hangs in the air?
Where all our lives will surely end,
-the act of murder for a fashion trend.
A deep, low growl builds in my chest,
I can't save my siblings; but I'll try my best.
I can sense the fear they try to hide,
We huddle close, side by side.
The barred door opens; I jump to my feet.
If we weren't locked in a cage, I'd call out "Retreat".
But there's nowhere to hide, nowhere to go,
My hackles raise, I let my fangs show.
A hand enters and grabs the closest to the door.
It yanks her upwards till she can't touch the floor.
With a strangled whine she is whipped out of sight,
Her eyes were frozen, wide in fright.
A snarl rips up my throat in an angry shriek.
It grows louder and louder till I reach my peak.
The barred door is slammed in my face,
My growling stops, I stumble back a pace.
Silence is followed by the sneering of others,
I slowly limp back to my sisters and brothers.
Their fur is standing up on end,
We Deserve Better
I am an infant
I am a child of this Earth
Same as you
I was born for you
I saw my mother bleed for you
I saw my mother die for you
And I knew that I was next
I am a toddler
I am a child of this Earth
Same as you
I was kicked around by you
I was pushed and shoved by you
I was locked in a tiny cage by you
And then you left me there
I am a teenager
I am a child of this Earth
Same as you
I was broken for you
I was beat and abused for you
I was growing fat for you
And soon I will die for you
I am an adult
I am a child of this Earth
Same as you
Surely I was undeserving of the pain
Surely I deserved better than
To live among the dead and dying
Surely I did not deserve
To be slaughtered in such a way
I am not human
But I am a child of this Earth
Alive and Living
Same as you
Why Im A VegetarianI'm a vegetarian because society is corrupt, if one man kills another man, that first man is killed in order to prove killing Is wrong, but what about animals? Man does not only kill animals, but he cooks them and eats them, if one man kills, cooks and eats a person (or more) they can get life with no probation. Though it's an every day thing that animals are killed for food, it's so common we have housing built for such a thing, filled with hooks, saws, spinning blades and conveyer belts. Why is it that man gets away with such things and most people don't even notice nor pay attention to the fact it goes on every day but we can all watch the news and think "That's so sick" when we watch a story about a grisly murder on the news.
If a dog bites a person, that dog is put down, but if a man kills cows and pigs and chickens they are paid for it. Why is this? Why is it that in our society it's considered "okay" to kill a creature that can feel, touch, love, reproduce and communicate, just
Crow Hunting Competition/Crow Appreciation DaySpent today in Montour Falls, NY where a hunting competition was occurring.
Here is a new way to invest some spare time. The Millport Hunting and Fishing Club is going to hold a "crow shoot" on Feb. 11 with three-man teams paying $30 to participate.
Fee is due by Feb. 10. Top money goes to the team with the most crows. Counting takes place at 3 p.m. sharp and birds must be taken on the day of the hunt, Feb. 11. For more information call (607) 535-9114. The hunting and fishing club is at 1750 Gano Road, Montour Falls.
A lot of people were, understandably, upset about this. The organizers of the hunt cite that oh, it's okay that we aren't eating them, because "the birds carry West Nile Virus and eat songbird eggs."
1. Crows do not "carry" West Nile Virus. Once bitten by mosquitoes, which are the actual carriers of WNV, crows die withing 4 days. They do n
Vote against aerial gunning of wolves in AlaskaUPDATE: The poll is now closed. Thanks for participating, everyone.
Please take some time to take part in a poll on whether the Board of Game on the Kenai Peninsula (southern Alaska) should adopt aerial predator control measures for wolves. One should think that it's clear by now that the aerial gunning has proven to be effective to kill wolves, but absolutely ineffective to "save moose" like it's always claimed to be.
The local newspaper "Peninsula Clarion" has the poll up on their website at < poll closed > - the voting is quite close, with a narrow majority of voters opposing such aerial control measures.
In support of an action alert from the Alaska Wildlife Alliance, please help and make sure you vote "No" on this poll. Let's take a stand against such plans and turn the voting result into a clear sign against such measures!
The URL again: < poll closed >
You will find the poll on the right hand panel.

The subtle crueltyHow would you feel if someone took away your voice, cut your vocal chords so you can no longer use your tantalizing voice; because SOMEONE thought that it was annoying though you only spoke to communicate your feelings with them, to protect them, or warn them of dangers?
How would you feel if someone trimmed or stapled your ears; cropped them down to the opening and made them to look pinned back and sharp; because SOMEONE thought it would make you look more intimidating and fierce...though they are your ears, they are designed to help YOU hear a specific way and despite similarities with others' ears, yours are unique, and allow you to specifically hear what another might not.
How would you feel if someone cut your fingers off from the first knuckle under your nail bed--just clean off--because SOMEONE thought your nails would grow long and sharp enough to scratch them or their precious material possessions though if they did grow and you had to scratch someone in defense, now

FAQs ,About marine animals in captivity:I would like to help raise your awareness about why, there is a demand to capture and keep marine animals in captivity ; to raise your awareness because :you're creating the demand when you are visiting a marine park like SeaWorld or MarineLand or if you participate to a swim with dolphins in a vacations resort's activities.
The demand cause a market for exploitation of sea creatures!
So here are some questions and answers on the subject:
PLEASE READ IT AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT YOUR DECISION TO PURCHASE TICKET TO ENTER THESE WATER-PARKS DOES HAVE ON THESE ANIMALS, MADE TO BE LEAVING IN THE WILD!
WHERE DO CAPTIVE DOLPHINS COME FROM?
Contrary to the popular perception that all captive dolphins are born in captivity, many of those currently in captivity were once wild and free. While some water parks obtain dolphins legally, others find that obtaining the animals through proper channels takes more time and money than they are willing to invest.As a result, a thrivi
