Edmonton Valley Zoo (Edmonton, Canada)&mdash;Can You Hear Me Now? Four times Edmonton Valley Zoo made the list and now we proudly stand as the second worst zoo in the world. Oh Canada</p> <p>edmonton_wz_2013</p> <p>What more can we say about the Edmonton Valley Zoo&rsquo;s stubborn refusal to do right by Lucy? This profoundly social female Asian elephant has lived alone for thirtysix long years in the zoo&rsquo;s tiny enclosure, locked away for much of the year due to Alberta&rsquo;s bitterly cold climate. Neither worldwide furor over Lucy&rsquo;s cruel confinement, or the sound decisions by two other Canadian zoos to send their elephants to warmer climates, has moved zoo or Edmonton officials to move toward meeting Lucy&rsquo;s social and physical needs. Lucy suffers from chronic arthritis and foot problems, displays abnormal stereotypic behavior, and is managed with an outdated circus-style method using bullhooks. Further, the zoo refuses to allow an independent veterinarian to examine Lucy, and CAZA&mdash;the zoo&rsquo;s accrediting body&mdash;won&rsquo;t stand up for her. Lucy&rsquo;s only hope now hinges on whether new city councillors show reason and compassion for her.</p> <p>The Edmonton Valley Zoo appears for the fourth time on IDA&rsquo;s list.</p> Sun, 17 Aug 2014 13:05:31 +0000 A Home Ain't A Home without a Newfie Dog. <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Norton, Grandpa&rsquo;s Newfie dog died</p> <p><img style="float: right; margin: 05px;" src="" alt="they pulled out 29" width="300" height="329" /></p> <p style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;Grandpa looked destroyed as he cried and cried.<br />He said he had a whole in his soul<br />That wouldn't fill in or let go<br />After two tear filled days he jumped into his truck<br />No good by but we wished him good luck<br />For two days he didn&rsquo;t come back, no cell phone to call<br />But when he returned he said it all</p> <p style="text-align: left;">There were two black hairy bundles one in each arm<br />That&rsquo;s even better than one lucky charm<br />He came home with Norton 2 and 3<br />He swore they brought happiness to every family<br />He said a family ain&rsquo;t blessed with joy<br />Unless he&rsquo;s got a slobbery big Norton boy.<br />Grandpa made us take an oath that we&rsquo;d all own<br />A Norton newfie dog to bless our home<br />Grandpa&rsquo;s marine ship set sail in a hazy fog<br />As it thickened&nbsp;none could see what is soon to be<br />Except for the courageous Newfie Norton dog</p> <p>One night the Nortons sleeping,&nbsp;dreaming vividly<br />Number 2 raised his head listening intently<br />He heard someone scream silently<br />Roused waking Norton number 3 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Into&nbsp;the water&nbsp;knowing what to do</p> <p>Floundering arms and legs ,numbering twenty two<img src="" alt="" width="300" height="329" />the Dogs knew when Gramps and the mates were drowning &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;But if they were drunk and wobbly they only dragged home &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Gramps.

Every beast was stuffed, and she thought it was so nice to pet them all. She purchased exact replicas of the ones in the zoo. She already had a collection in her cabin on the cruise ship. She wondered what happened to all those animals. Oh well, the new ones were so much easier to care for.</p> Wed, 08 Feb 2012 05:48:42 +0000
