Heartbreaking 💔 my previous posts show the abuse of #spottedhyenas. this one shows the abuse of #stripedhyenas 😢 .
_
some people just torture animals for fun but some do it for superstitious reasons, which is explained in this 2018 nrdc article entitled striped hyenas don’t have magical powers but their disappearing act is for real:
_
experts say striped hyenas are really rather gentle, not to mention good for the environment but sadly these scavengers unfairly have a bad reputation.
_
while studying the species in rajasthan, wildlife biologist priya singh met villagers who referred to striped hyenas as “the horses of witches.” as the legend goes, witches ride on the backs of these animals. when a hyena comes across a carcass and eats the flesh, the witch feeds on the soul of the dead.
_
in parts of the middle east, similar misconceptions exist. some arab cultures believe that striped hyenas are grave robbers. others contend that a striped hyena can put a spell on people.
_
all of this bad pr can have real-world consequences as there are several videos online of people abusing striped hyenas with wire muzzles, repeated kicking and boulders.
_
according to the international union for conservation of nature (iucn), the species is “near threatened" with fewer than 10,000 left and decreasing. they're also killed for traditional medicine where their dried penises are believed to enhance virility, their skins and brains are popular on the black market and striped hyena meat has recently come into vogue following a declaration that it can be considered halal.
_
in saudi arabia where restaurants have been shut down for serving hyena meat, these animals are threatened with extinction. one interviewee told the saudi gazette that “hyena meat has a unique taste and has an effect that is stronger than well-known aphrodisiacs"
_
the truth is that striped hyenas are gentle, undeserving of their reputation and their vulture-like diet is something to respect. they have the ability to stomach every manner of filth, which helps speed up decay and reduces the amount of nasty microbes lingering about. they’re perfect cleaners for the environment.

¿os acordáis de estrella, la cabra que rescatamos con una terrible mastitis?

en este vídeo podéis ver cómo estaba y el lugar donde la rescatamos. no podemos comprender cómo pudieron abandonarla en ese estado, condenándola a una muerte segura.
pasó meses en tratamiento antes de la cirugía. la mastectomía es una cirugía arriesgada, pero por suerte fue un éxito.
en santuario compasión animal sigue recuperándose y empieza a descubrir una nueva vida. vamos a hacer todo lo posible para que sea feliz. ❤️

I’ve posted a lot of heartbreaking videos of hyena abuse recently so feel like we need to see a heartwarming video of these incredible, misunderstood animals.

The dumbo octopus
__
look at this precious shy baby.
__
grimpoteuthis is a genus of pelagic umbrella octopuses known as the dumbo octopuses. the name "dumbo" originates from their resemblance to the title character of disney's 1941 film dumbo, having a prominent ear-like fin which extends from the mantle above each eye. there are 13 species recognized in the genus. prey include crustaceans, bivalves, worms and copepods. the average life span of various grimpoteuthis species is 3 to 5 years.
__
most species of grimpoteuthis live at depths of at least 3,000 to 4,000 metres (9,800 to 13,100 ft) with some living up to 7,000 metres (23,000 ft) below sea level, which is the deepest of any known octopus. they are some of the rarest of the octopoda species though they occur worldwide including in the waters of new zealand, australia, monterey bay, oregon, philippines, martha's vineyard, papua new guinea and azores. the largest dumbo octopus ever recorded was 1.8 metres (5.9 ft) in length and weighed 5.9 kilograms (13 lb). the average size for most species is 20–30 centimetres (7.9–12 in) in length. the average weight is still undetermined.

A tale of successful adoption.

mr. s. dutta who takes care of his community strays rescued juno, nurtured and provided all required treatment. later when juno became stable we together became successful to find a suitable family for him. sagar deka, a resident of six mile, guwahati and his family adopted juno today on december 11. we are thankful to mr. dutta for saving the life of juno and mr. deka and his family for coming forward and adopt a needy. .

I finally finished with the grind for today, and it dawned on me that today is international human rights day. we were all gifted inalienable rights to what this world has to offer, and we should all unite and demand access to resources, health, and equity for all ✊🏼❣️. #fudgefascism #fudgecapitalism #humarightsforall #animalrights #peaceandfreedomparty #anarchist #myheartismyguide

🦆 according to facebook, australia's duck farming industry is "shocking", "scary" and "violent". we agree.

head over to our facebook to see how you can help end duck suffering ❤️ #censorship #animalrights #compassionwithoutcompromise #animals #ducks repost by animalliberationorg:

Shopping with brad! what is great about this is that he helped spread awareness today. so many people came up to us and said, “we thought roosters were mean!”. he showed them differently with his sweet self. 🖤🐓
