    Doctors in Philadelphia have been given new guidance to help them deal with an influx of patients addicted to animal tranquilizer xylazine - known on the street as 'tranq'. An outreach charity is warning that the drug - a muscle relaxant intended for large animals like horses - is leaving users 'unable to walk' and with 'gaping wounds'. Philadelphia has become the epicenter for xylazine, which has slowly but surely made its way into the city's drug supply. It is most often used to cut fentanyl, the powerful opioid that has replaced the majority of Philadelphia's heroin. Philadelphia is considered to be ground zero for the xylazine crisis. The city's health department released guidance to physicians last month warning them some users might not even realize they have taken the drug as it is often cut with fentanyl  The drug prolongs the highs felt from heroin, but results in users passing out for hours at a time, while injection points ulcerate and lead to grisly wounds that spread across the body Unintentional drug overdose deaths in Philadelphia have increased over...
    A slew of celebrities, including Kendall Jenner and Alicia Silverstone, are sharing in their disgust over the video showing a horse that collapsed on the street while pulling a carriage in New York City on Wednesday. The New York City Police Department responded to the incident that happened near Ninth Avenue and 45th Street in Manhattan around 5 p.m., according to People. But before officers arrived a video obtained by NBC News shows the driver of the carriage allegedly trying to pull the distressed animal up off the ground and hitting him, yelling, 'Get up! Come on! Get up! Get up!' as he remained on the ground. The driver allegedly pulled the harness and hit the horse with the reins, but the animal puts his head down before eventually leaning over on his side. Tense moments: Video of a horse that collapsed while pulling a carriage in the Hells Kitchen neighborhood of New York City on Wednesday has some people outraged Celebrity outrage: Kendall Jenner, Alicia Silverstone and Ariel Winter are among the growing number of celebrities to express their outrage...
    A Parisian public official has declared the city's vast rat population is the subject of prejudice and said the animal must be renamed to prevent people killing them. Douchka Markovic, a supporter of the leftist mayor Anne Hidalgo and co-president of the animal right-touting Animalist Party, recently told a council meeting the term 'rat' encourages violence. 'I prefer to call them surmulots (which loosely translates as 'oversized field mouse') as it carries less negative connotations,' Markovic said as she rebuked the questions of centre-right councillor Paul Hatte on the need for increased pest control and extermination efforts. French ranking site Topito earlier this year declared Paris the fourth most rat infested city in the world, and the astounding population of the rodents is earning a reputation despised by the city's tourism chiefs. France's National Academy of Medicine meanwhile said the growing number of rats is a 'threat to human health because of the numerous diseases they spread through parasites, excrement, bites and scratches'. But Markovic, who is tasked with overseeing animal welfare in the French capital's 18th arrondissement, said the...

    As Russian bombs rain down on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, volunteers dart through the city, dodging artillery on a mission to save lives. Panicked family members who have fled the city call the operators at Animal Rescue Kharkiv with desperate messages: Our dog is still home, our cat is trapped inside our apartment. Many residents of Kharkiv have already left, risking the journey in hopes of finding a break from the constant bombardment. But even before Russian forces attacked the city, Animal Rescue Kharkiv decided to stay. Russian bombs have struck the group’s adoption center, killing five dogs and leaving another five to escape into the woods. “Our team decided before the war started that we will stay here and we will do the work and we won’t leave our city. We’ll continue working and helping the animals,” Olga Ilyunina, one of the group’s founders, told The Daily Beast.
    Oklahoma City sports radio host and former Major League Baseball player Jim Traber issued an apology for nearly blurting out the N-word on-air. Traber’s mistake came as he addressed the harassment Carmelo Anthony received last week from Philadelphia fans during the Lakers game against the 76ers. Thursday night, Anthony confronted Philly fans who were taunting him with the racially charged word “boy.” Friday afternoon on 98.1 The Sports Animal, Traber went on a rant to defend Anthony and condemn the Philly fans, but as he discussed things people shouldn’t say, the radio host allegedly almost let the N-word slip. After listeners pointed out the shocking mistake on Twitter, Traber posted a video to say sorry “if I offended anybody.” “If you were listening, I was talking about what happened with Carmelo Anthony in Philadelphia about how they were making offensive words towards him,” Traber said. “I was talking about how disgusting it is when people do that. And I was basically talking about a couple of things that you just can’t say.” We hear you. We sympathize and apologize....
    Essential Within minutes from the city, the Australian Park offers a chance to discover the cultural and zoological richness of the country. Combining fun and education, the park’s ambition is like the guided tours it organizes. BAn Australian park? It is the connection between the two senses. An animal interest is primarily related to interest in Australia ” Director Carol Mason explains. For this trained biologist, the purpose of the park is “The zoo offers a collection of animals and species similar to those in the zoo “Rather, it is about providing the public with a real contact with the animal. For this, the Australian Park offers guided tours, during which the visitor is as close to the animal as possible.”This is not just a view through a fence, we’re really penetrating the brackets here. ” Says Carol Mason. 1h30 guided tours allow you to take part in feeding the ostriches, cross the wallopes barrier, access the kangaroos, and enter the birdhouse of the badger.

    AUSTRALIA'S acting Prime Minister has said the nation's mouse plague should be "rehomed" in the inner-city apartments of animal rights activists to "nibble their feet" and "scratch their children at night". National Party leader Michael McCormack made the bizarre suggestion in Parliament after being questioned about his plan to help farmers. 9Australia's acting PM Michael McCormack pledged his support for farmers who have been tormented by the rodent infestationCredit: Getty 9Tens of millions of rampaging mice have ravaged towns in AustraliaCredit: NSW Farmers He also hit out at animal rights organisation PETA in his latest attack on "idiots" who believe that frustrated farmers shouldn't kill mice.

    (CNN)Los Angeles has officially become a no-kill shelter city, making it the largest city in the country to do so, according to Best Friends Animal Society, the organization that gives the ratings. LA's save rate is now up to 90.4%, which is over the 90% rate needed to claim no-kill status, according to Best Friends. The group factors in that approximately 10% of pets who enter shelters have medical or behavioral circumstances that warrant humane euthanasia rather than being killed for lack of space. Delaware is being recognized as the first no-kill state for animal shelters"When Best Friends Animal Society first launched its No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) initiative in 2012, only 56% of dogs and cats were making it out of Los Angeles city shelters alive," the organization said in a statement. The group credits Los Angeles Animal Services, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, for the achievement. "It's difficult to overstate the enormity of this moment and its place in the history of the no-kill movement," Julie Castle, chief executive officer of Best Friends Animal Society, said in a...

    He’s a land blubber. A wayward elephant seal was rescued from the middle of the street in Puerto Cisnes, Chile on Monday, as seen in this viral video from Storyful. The marine mammal became stranded in the seaside city after getting disoriented while coming ashore. “I was a bit startled to begin with, but because they move slowly, I calmed down and told my son to film it,” a resident named Antonia told the Argentinian publication Infobae about the harrowing moment. The 50-second clip shows the bewildered pinniped — the largest of its kind at up to four tons — lumbering awkwardly down the road as naval officers try to coax it back to the sea using large tarpaulins.

    Henry Bergh was born in 1813, the son of a wealthy shipbuilder with a thriving business on the East River. He inherited a substantial fortune the year he turned 30, and for much of his life, there was little to indicate that he would amount to much of anything. He went to Columbia, but never graduated. He married an Englishwoman, then spent years traveling around Europe with her. When he came back to New York, Bergh attempted to make a name for himself as an author and a playwright, failing miserably. “I wondered at his persistence,” said one theater manager, who found “positively no merit” in his writing. Even a close friend admitted that he had no sense of humor. Then, during the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln sent Bergh to Russia as part of the diplomatic corps, and his life changed forever. There, he saw a peasant whipping his horse in a St. Petersburg street and ordered his driver to stop the carriage. Confronted, the peasant dropped his whip in terror, Bergh said — and it was then, he realized,...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Happening today: the first adoption event at Chicago Animal Care and Control since quarantine began. Fees are waived for cats and dogs older than 6 months. The nationwide four-day event is called “Empty The Shelters.” It’s a curious name, because Chicago’s shelter is emptier than usual, and it’s not because of an abundance of adoptions. CBS 2 Morning Insider Lauren Victory goes inside COVID-19’s positive impact at the pound. Pups and the pandemic; as COVID-19 surged, so did pet adoptions. Story after story of shelters cleared out. So imagine our confusion by the statistics at Chicago Animal Care and Control.  CBS 2 did some sniffing around and, despite all the headlines, adoptions from the city shelter dropped 88%. “We got a huge outpouring of support when the whole COVID-19 started,” said CACC acting executive director Mamadou Diakhate, who explained partnerships ramped up when Illinois shut down. During the pandemic, the city agreed to do more spaying and neutering so rescue organizations could take over the bulk of adoptions. Then there’s this silver lining: “We start receiving less...
    Frankie, a three-month-old Pit Bull/Mastiff mix, was found abandoned on the side of the road in Tracy, California. Disturbingly, there was something more to the rescue of the young dog – he was found with duct tape wrapped around his muzzle and his front paws. On top of that, he had a large laceration on his head as well as on his back leg. The cruelty that was inflicted on this sweet puppy is heartbreaking – but now, thanks to City of Tracy Animal Services, Frankie is finally safe, he is receiving medical treatment, and waiting for his new life to start. Once rescued, Frankie was immediately transported to Jules Veterinary Center and underwent surgery to close his wounds. As of now, the rescuers do not have much information about what happened to the puppy aside from the fact that he was clearly a victim of animal cruelty. In spite of that, Frankie still trusts and loves people. He is friendly and affectionate – and would make a truly wonderful friend! The shelter taking care of little Frankie...
    If you thought 2020 couldn’t get any more strange, meet Gerald, a tenacious turkey whose aggressive attacks on people have shut down a popular garden in Oakland and terrorized the surrounding Grand Lake neighborhood. “He was relentless,” one victim posted on Nextdoor, which is filled with both complaints and defenses of Gerald. “My fiance barely warded him off with a stick. People in the park yelled at me to ‘hold my ground.’ He was stalking me, and I swear I was getting flashbacks to the velociraptor scenes in ‘Jurassic Park.'” The city shut down the park in May and tried to put some space between the turkey and irate residents. It even tried to “retrain” Gerald to stop attacking people. Then in late July, the city, which had finally received permission from the state to trap and relocate Gerald to a less urban part of the area, began trying to trap the troublesome tom. So far, Gerald has shown the abilities of Houdini in escaping any traps, and the park remains closed. Gerald the turkey stands under the Morcom Rose...

    The coronavirus has caused another closure in St. Paul: the Animal Humane Society. Chief Executive Officer, Janelle Dixon, announced the closure of the organization’s St. Paul location on Monday, citing difficulties caused by the pandemic and the building’s old age as the reasons behind the decision. The St. Paul shelter by Como Regional Park closed in response to the pandemic in March and the protocols necessary to safely reopen and function under amid COVID-19 “are not feasible given the building’s remaining useful life,” the organization said in a statement. The 70-year-old building has narrow hallways that won’t allow for proper social distancing, for example, and its HVAC system would need a sizable investment to allow for proper ventilation. The building’s age and condition rendered it “functionally obsolete” even before the pandemic and the organization had been planning for several years to replace it, the statement continued, adding that the pandemic forced “extensive analysis” that led to the shift. “AHS is confident that, as a temporary measure, it can more safely and effectively meet the needs of animals and people in...
