Hey guys, my cousin’s dog, Blue, was staying with a friend while she went out of town. Her friends house was broken into, and Blue was stolen right out of his crate. He’s a Blue German Shepherd, and was last seen in Lake City, Florida. He could be anywhere in the Gainesville, Jacksonville, Ocala, and Lake City areas, so if you know anybody from there or around that area, PLEASE REBLOG. He was 1 of 6 German Shepherds stolen in the past month in this area, and naturally our minds think that he could be in danger of dog fighting, or worse. PLEASE, if you know anybody in the Florida/ South Georgia, please ask them to keep an eye out and respond to the number on the picture if they have any leads.
Could everybody stop falling into the hoax that the Fukushima power plant has contaminated all of the pacific ocean?
Most of the radiation being leaked into the Pacific Ocean is cesium-134, which has a half-life of only two years. Cesium goes in and out of the body like salt, and has had effect on marine populations near Japanese fisheries, however most of the banned sea food is slowly being made acceptable for public consumption.
The real issue now is that some leaks of strontium-90 have been discovered, which is a radioactive substance that stays in the bones of fish and human beings, however much of what has been leaked is cesium.
Now, I am not saying that Fukushima is not an emergency. It is. In fact, that is what is has been classified as by officials. However, we’re not all going to drop dead in five years from eating a pacific fish yet. The Japanese government is spending lots of money to prevent further leakage of radioactive substance.
But the posts you’ve surely seen going around tumblr telling everybody that we’re going to drop dead from consuming milk, fish, vegetables, etc, are totally false! They are taking what is an existing issue and turning it into a crisis.
Whether most of us want to admit it or not, Tumblr is just as bad a source of information as Facebook can be! Don’t trust everything you read, and don’t trust second party news sites! There are people out there who just want to scare you, or make a sensation.
There are more captive tigers in Texas than there are wild tigers in India…
So we’re supposed to let species go extinct? Because the vast majority of animals that are in captivity would go extinct without conservation efforts.

Beyond the lies, beneath the deception, the truth will surface.
OKAY, WE NEED TO REBLOG THE FUCK OUT OF THIS. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT AN ANIMAL PERSON, YOUR FOLLOWERS NEED TO SEE THIS. ESPECIALLY DURING THE HEIGHT OF VACATION SEASON. DO NOT SUPPORT SEA PARKS WITH CAPTIVE WHALES. IT’S NOT ENVIRONMENTAL PROPAGANDA (I can’t believe I even used those words) IT’S A REAL ISSUE AND IT’S NOT A MATTER OF PROOF, IT’S A MATTER OF COVERING IT UP AND IGNORING IT!
The “small holding tanks” are the medical tanks used for temporary housing. SeaWorld belongs to the AMMPA which has the largest required dimensions for housing Orcas. The tanks the animals regularly live in are massive. They are provided with enrichment, and a highly nutritious diet.
Do these whales have some health problems related to being captive? Yep. But the way we humans are destroying the planet, captive animals are the only to ensure the survival of a large species. Orcas are new to the captive world. There is a lot to learn. But if it weren’t for organizations like SeaWorld, the population of Orcas would be doomed to global warming, dumping of garbage and oil spills. So before you all go jumping on some bandwagon over one whale, how about you guys go do some more research about conservation organizations.
