Can you guys help put the word out about my friend’s dogs? They were taken from his yard in Atlanta, Georgia.
Please reblog. Thank you!
My two dogs went missing from the Grant park area around 9pm on Thursday January 31st. One is a chocolate lab with and orange collar and the other is a Australian Shepard with a blue and brown design on his collar. Both are friendly dogs but the Aussie can be a little scared sometimes. The lab is Harper and the Shepard is Shamus. If you find them please call 720-383-1161 day or night! Thanks.
Bullhooks used on circus elephants in Atlanta despite county ban
Fulton County banned bullhooks in June, but a superior court judge overruled the ban for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Bullhooks are tools with long handles and a sharp hook at one end that allows trainers to apply varying degrees of pressure to sensitive spots on an elephant’s body. Circuses say the tools are necessary for the safe handling of elephants, but critics say bullhooks are harmful to the animals.
Three young men cling to a green kayak as they fly down a snowy slope on Jan. 10 at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. The strong winter storm blanketed most of the East Coast from Jan. 8-13, and many Southern cities were shut down for several days due to the lack of snow removal equipment.
