Need Something To Cheer You Up? This Will Do The Trick! A Kidnapped Elephant Calf Is Reunited With Her Mother!
MeBai was taken from her mother to work as a tourist attraction in Thailand.
Elephant calves depend on their mothers, staying by their side for up to five years. The separation is incredibly cruel.
It took a lot of work to get them back together but rescuers did it! The caretakers of Mebai walked her over 60 miles, over the course of four days, so the reunion could take place. Watch as these two have the most magical reunion.
All animals deserve compassionate care, but is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
