Animal Suicides

In animals, Interesting and funny on September 27, 2013 at 19:08

Man, in his arrogance, prides and imagines that he is the one with feelings, emotions and discriminating power and that animals are..just animals.

Well, I Hold a contrary view.

Animals do have their own passions, feelings and their own reasoning abilities; we not able to decipher just as we can not understand one  from a different culture .

And if we can decipher what the animals think of man and animals, they would probably declare that they,animals have the ability to reason and have passions,

They might wonder why Human beings struggle so much for food, shelter and sex!

Story:

Suicide of a Dolphin.

Dolphin Suicide.

Dolphin Commits Suicide.

Over 40 years ago, Dolphin trainer Richard O’Barry watched Kathy, a dolphin in the 1960s television show Flipper, kill herself. Or so he says. “She was really depressed… You have to understand dolphins and whales are not [involuntary] air breathers like we are. Every breath they take is a conscious effort. They can end their life whenever. She swam into my arms and looked me right in the eye, took a breath and didn’t take another one. I let her go and she sank straight down on her belly to the bottom of the tank,” said O’Barry.

The experience transformed him into an animal rights activist for life and made him a celebrity after his role in “The Cove,” an Oscar-winning documentary about it. (Link)

Sheep suicide.

Mass suicide of Sheep.

450 Sheep commit suicide.

In 2005, it was reported that nearly 1,500 sheep jumped to their deaths from a cliff in Turkey. The stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as 450 animals died, falling on top of one another in a billowy white pile. Those that jumped later were saved as the pile got higher and the fall became more cushioned.

Dog suicide.

Dog makes repeated attempts at suicide and succumbs.

Dog attempts suicide repeatedly and succumbs.

In 1845, the Illustrated London News reported a “Singular Case of Suicide” involving a “fine, handsome and valuable black dog, of the Newfoundland species.” The dog had been acting less lively than usual for days, but then was seen “to throw himself in the water and endeavor to sink by preserving perfect stillness of the legs and feet.”

The dog was rescued and tied up. However, as soon as he was released he entered the water again and tried to sink himself. This occurred several times until, at last, the dog appeared to tire and “by dint of keeping his head determinedly under water for a few minutes, succeeded at last in obtaining his object, for when taken out this time he was indeed dead.”

.Bear suicide.

Bears starve to suicide.

Bears starve to death to escape misery of Captivity.

In 2012, a bear who had been refusing food for ten days finally starved herself to death, according to reports. Animal rights campaigners claim that they have witnessed many other bears doing the same thing in the last couple of years in China.

Some bears are kept inside very small cages by the Chinese, who harvest their bile, a digestive juice stored in the gall bladder which is prized in traditional Chinese medicine. An estimated 12,000 bears are kept in captivity in China and Vietnam.

The bile is removed from the bear by inserting a catheter tube through a permanent incision in the abdomen and gall bladder. Sometimes, a permanently implanted metal tube is used. The painful process is generally carried out twice a day.

Dog Loses Face Saving Girls, Grieving Monkeys

In animal behavior, Interesting and funny on June 9, 2013 at 11:14

Think of selfless devotion, this is it.

A dog saved the lives of two girls, in the process lost part of its face.

Disfigured Dog.

Dog has her face set right after it lost part of it.

We , Human Beings, take pride on the assumption, wrong though in my opinion, that animals do not have the much touted Reason as we do( Science is discovering that animals do possess a remarkable level of Reasoning ability), I am not sure whether we wold have done what this Dog has done.

I have another point on Animals to make,I am posting it towards the end of this story.

Story: Scroll down for Video.

The Philippine dog that lost half her face saving the lives of two girls returned home Saturday after treatment in the United States.

Filipino veterinarian Anton Lim who accompanied the dog — named Kabang — said the mixed-breed whose snout and upper jaw had been sheared off was treated at the University of California, Davis, veterinary hospital for seven months with $27,000 in donations raised in the Philippines and abroad.

Kabang suffered the injuries in December 2011 when she jumped into the path of a motorcycle, stopping it from running over her owner’s daughter and niece in southern Zamboanga city.

UC Davis veterinary Professor Frank Verstraete said doctors at the hospital performed surgery to heal her wounds, though they could not reconstruct Kabang’s jaw or snout.

Doctors had to first treat her for other ailments, including a tumor and heartworm, to ensure her wounds would heal. They took skin from her cheeks, neck, and forehead to cover up sensitive areas that were exposed on her face during surgery in March, Verstraete said.

Kabang won widespread sympathy because of her injuries from what has been described as a heroic act. A nurse from Buffalo, New York, spearheaded a fund-raising campaign to bring Kabang to the United States because Philippine veterinaries could not treat her.

 

 

Sometime back, I saw a group of Moneys grieving over a dead child monkey.

A child Monkey dies trying to jump around.

As it did not wake up, the mother tries to wake her up….you should see the agony in her face.

Group of Monkeys watching from a distance slowly come near, share the grief nd keep a Vigil.

So moving that It brought tears into my eyes!

More Human than Us!

Mysterious Unknown Animals Photo Essay

In images, nature on April 16, 2013 at 19:09

A mysterious primate resembling a monkey was spotted in a Park UK.

But it is doubtful if it is a Monkey.

There are  lots of instances where hitherto unknown animals have been found.

I do not know what Darwinian would say to this.

I have been already labelled as antiDarwin and an ignoramus in comments in Times of India , when people could not  reply my queries.

Let me add further by posting a Photo Essay on the animals hitherto unknown.

Monkey(?) UK

This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan, it’s the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5000 miles to East from Moscow (Russia is huge). People don’t know who is it. According to the bones and teeth – it is not a fish. According to its skeleton – it’s not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur. It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away.
