County: Robertson
Disposition: OpenSuspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

A Springfield family awoke Thursday morning and found an arrow through the head of their sleeping dog. The dog named Cooner survived the shot. He was asleep on the porch. "He was in a lot of pain. He was yelping," said owner Pat Sparks. She and her husband, Don Sparks let the dog accompany them at their business. "We all love him," she said, adding that Sparks Roofing coworkers take turns taking care of him. After calling their vet, the Sparks family carefully pulled the arrow out of the dog's shoulder and ear.

The family's other dogs have been attacked or poisoned. They filed a report with Coopertown police who said they are tracking a suspect in the case.

In September, someone shot a stray dog in the head with an arrow in Nashville. The animal had to be euthanized.

Petition Target: Mayor & Council Members of San Antonio

Sponsored by: ZCTF & Voice For Animals

"We urge you, The Board of Directors at San Antonio Zoo, to follow the lead of other large zoos and release Lucky to the Elephant Sanctuary where her needs can be better met.

Lucky, the last surviving elephant at San Antonio Zoo is lucky only in that she has managed to outlive her companions, Alport and Ginny, both of whom have died prematurely in the last three years.
Elephants in the wild live in large groups and will walk for tens of miles every day.

Lucky has spent over 40 years in her prison - a small, barren, concrete, zoo enclosure. It is estimated that over 60% of zoo elephants have arthritis or foot disease problems of the sort that killed her companions. Such an environment cannot meet either the physical or psychological needs of a large and social creature.

The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald Tennessee is willing to provide a more humane and natural lifestyle for Lucky - with 2,400 acres for Lucky to roam in with her new companions. The Elephant Sanctuary will also pay transport costs.

After 46 years of imprisonment, the life of such a beautiful and innocent lady is more important than the few dollars from visitors who walk past her sad and lonely figure. Other metropolitan zoos have accepted that the cruel confinement they provide can no longer be justified, and have closed their elephant exhibits.

Now is the time to Free Lucky!

One Voice : One world, one conscience


One Voice is launching 'One World, One Conscience'
...“I’m listening to my conscience!”

Life is in danger. Economic violence is on the rise everywhere, threatening the evolutionary future of all living beings, including humans. If we want to stop this phenomenon, it is the responsibility of each one of us to be guided by our conscience. By doing so we will find a solution, and this is why One Voice is launching the “One World, One Conscience” movement.

One World, One Conscience is a non-violent civil movement. It responds to the urgent need to combine the ethical demands to respect all life with human activities. It offers each person an individual path to follow and ethics that can be respected by all.

A 50% reduction in meat consumption in the West by 2020 would enable us to stop 3.6 million children suffering from malnutrition in developing countries. International Food Policy Research Institute

--Albert Schweitzer

"Non-violence is a powerful and just weapon which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it। It is a sword that heals".
--Martin Luther King
