Crush cans campaign
« on: Monday, 26 May, 2014 @ 23:52:46 »
Canned cat: 30 March this year, a cat with it's head stuck firmly in a can. Found on a dead-end country lane bumping into gateposts. Had abrasion sores on it's face and neck, vet reckoned it had probably been stuck in the can for several days and was suffering from dehydration. Flies awaiting it's demise:




Tinned puppy, found 22:30, 26 May, wandering blindly across the main Argostoli road outside Poros.
Cig packet for size comparison:










It's easy to avoid animals starving to death or getting squidged by traffic - please, crush cans

Bravo for saving another littleun - but I wish you didn't have to due to idiots leaving their rubbish around.  The consequences if you hadn't saved this puppy make me feel sick.

Nice one Maik, well done :-) :-)  Yes, it really doesn't occur to crush a can so this is very well pointed-out...  Can I share one of your pics on my Facebook page to spread the message?

I am so pleased to be able to report that Zoe (ζωή = life), our little 'canned' puppy is heading off to Holland and a new home thanks to the KATS charity!  We have been looking after her since Mike found her in May in the hope of eventually finding her a home and now she will have one!  Many thanks to Sheila for all her running around to the vets etc. and to all who are involved in her adoption (Zoe's that is, not Sheila's!)  Thank you.   :yiamas:  The pics just show how much she's grown and she's grown some more since these were taken!

Thirsty leopard gets its head stuck in a pot in Indian mining village
The wild animal spent six hours trying to get the water pot off before being rescued by Indian forest officials

A leopard got itself in a tight spot when it accidentally got its head stuck in a water pot in an Indian mining village.

The feline was found in the unfortunate situation in Sardul Kheda, in the north western state of Rajasthan.

It wandered around trapped for six hours as bystanders looked on, before forest officials eventually tranquilised the animal and sawed the pot off.

It was then taken to an enclosure a safe distance from the village.
