I know this is a disturbing picture, but I'm posting it b/c I think people need to know that this kind of backwards crap still goes on in South TX. Fortunately, with the help of a friend, these coyote spirits have been released. These poor animals are no longer hanging from this "ranchers" (an "exotic game") fence!! #freethecoyote#nature#coyote#coyotelove
Ahhhhh Spring! That magical, mystical time of year when rain falls and flowers bloom, animal babies are born (unless you're a giraffe named April) and the birds begin to prepare to lay their eggs. It's also a time when you find yourself wondering whether the Coyotes will keep you awake with the nighttime feeding of their screaming, psychotic newborn pups or the birds will gently wake you at 5am with their screeching, psychotic calls. I guess I won the nature lotto having been blessed with both last night. Yea me.... @missylee3 #nature#sucks#spring#nosleep#animals#coyote#itsgonnabeamonsterenergykindofday#ambienneeded
@cynical_coyote: "▪️I focus mainly on coyotes here but the birds abused for down in jackets deserve recognition.
▪️As one may assume I am fond of coyotes. They embody resilience. The gray wolf, coyote's larger cousin, was nearly exterminated during the westward migration, pushed to a few corners of wilderness. Despite man's best efforts the coyote remains, adapting to hostile city streets, deserts and the tundra with seeming ease. They stand tall against man's never ending desire to exterminate them. ▪️Coyotes as a species may have pushed past the oppressive hand seeking to exterminate them yet they are still subject to gruesome exploitation: the fur trade. ▪️Canada Goose remains a popular seller for winter wear. Declaring with seemingly unironic pride on their website "we never purchase fur from fur farms" only trapping. (It's impossible to buy coyote fur from fur farms, as no coyote farms exist.)
▪️Though traps with teeth have been banned, leg hold traps remain the most common coyote trapping method. Trapped and exposed to the elements many animals will die from blood loss, dehydration, hypothermia and the injuries sustained while trying to free themselves. ▪️Canada Goose's persistence on using animal products is an archaic, deplorable example of a company prioritizing profit over genuinely ethical products and transparency. ▪️Fur wearers have turned living, breathing animals into garments. Though some may be ignorant of what they support this doesn't lessen the wrong of wearing other animals. ▪️
