A Dog and Elephant Best Friend

When elephants retire, many head for the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tenn. They arrive one by one, but they tend to live out their lives two-by-two.

"Every elephant that comes here searches out someone that she then spends most all of her time with," says sanctuary co-founder Carol Buckley.

It's like having a best girlfriend, Buckley says - "Somebody they can relate to, they have something in common with."

Debbie has Ronnie. Misty can't live without Dulary.

Those are pachyderm-pachyderm pairs. But perhaps the closest friends of all are Tarra and Bella.

That would be Tarra the 8,700 pound Asian elephant. And Bella. The dog.

"This is her friend," Buckley says, scratching Bella's tummy. "Her friend just happens to be a dog and not an elephant."

"Bella knows she's not an elephant. Tarra knows she's not a dog," Buckley adds. "But that's not a problem for them."

More Love From The Middle Easts Only democracy

From Raw Story:

An American activist who participated in a Palestinian 'solidarity' demonstration is in serious condition Saturday after an Israeli soldier shot him in the face with a high-velocity tear gas canister. He underwent surgery early Saturday.

Even as the rescue operation commenced, more tear gas rained down on the demonstrators as soldiers allegedly delayed ambulance access.

"Tristan Anderson, 38, of Oakland, Calif., was wounded Friday in the West Bank village of Naalin, during a protest against Israel's separation barrier," reported the Associated Press. "In the past year, four Palestinians have been killed and scores injured by Israeli troops putting down weekly stone-throwing protests against the barrier, which cuts off Naalin from 300 acres of olive groves."

"The Israeli soldiers were standing on the hill looking over us firing tear-gas canisters" Ulrike Anderson, who was with Tristan when he was hit, told the International Herald-Tribune. "Tristan was hit and fell to the ground. He had a large hole in the front of his head. I tried to stop the bleeding. He was bleeding heavily from the nose."

"Tristan was shot by the new tear-gas canisters that can be shot up to 500 meters," said Teah Lunqvist with the International Solidarity Movement, according to California's IndyBay. "I ran over as I saw someone had been shot, while the Israeli forces continued to fire tear-gas at us. When an ambulance came, the Israeli soldiers refused to allow the ambulance through the checkpoint just outside the village. After 5 minutes of arguing with the soldiers, the ambulance passed."

"Other ISM activists killed or injured by Israeli forces: Rachel Corrie, killed by a bulldozer in 2003; Brian Avery, shot in the face in 2003; and Tom Hurndall, shot to death in 2004," the site notes.

A Chimpanzee Adopts A White Tiger

The cuteness.. it's overwhelming:

And the full background:

The white Bengal tiger cubs were taken from their mother's zoo in South Carolina to be in a warmer and dryer environment.

China York, a carer at Jungle Island, said Anjana keeps the cubs happy by giving them their bottles of milk and joining in their rough and tumble play.

"She picked up on the fact that I'm taking care of the babies so she wants to care for them. She's not necessarily maternal but she's really gentle with them.

"She likes to pet them and see how they're doing and if they're crying she gives them a finger to pacify on like you would a baby.

"Or she gives them a bottle to feed them on."

The two tiger cubs were born during a hurricane and had to be separated from their mother after their sanctuary flooded.

They will stay with Anjana at Jungle Island for a couple more months, when they will be too big to play with her.

Bears Playing Hockey

As creepy and disconcerting as it sounds:

And yes folks, it's real:

Last fall the bloggers seemed wary that the videos were a CGI trick, but they’re not. Hockey-playing bears are actually something of a tradition in Russia. Terry Jones wrote in The Edmonton Sun in December 1998 of the Moscow Circus on Ice’s tour of Canada, and how three Russian Oilers — Mikhail Shtalenkov, Andrei Kovalenko and Boris Mironov — went to a small rink in Clive, Alta., for a photo op with the bears...

But questions of animal cruelty aside. Are you disturbed by how eerily close bear-hockey is to real hockey? Does seeing something like that make you wonder just how different we humans are from the animals over whom we supposedly have dominion?

On Fox News, Universal Health Care Creates Terrorism

From the segment:

A state run health care enterprise is bureaucratic, and I think the terrorists have shown over and over again, whether it’s dealing with INS or whether it’s dealing with airport security, they’re very good at gaming the system with bureaucracies. They’re very good at getting around bureaucracies..

And if one of your guys is a jihadist, if one of your doctors is spending all the time online reading Osama bin Laden fatwas, someone’s going to notice that. But the National Health Service is more like the post office, you know there’s a lot of anonymity, it’s easy to hide in the bureaucracy.

Protesting in Zimbabwe, Activists Use Trillion Dollar Notes

Reads: Thanks to Mugabe This Money Is Wallpaper

Via Anorak News:
A unique campaign was devised to promote the paper to raise awareness and increase readership. One of the most eloquent symbols of Zimbabwe’s collapse is the Z$100 trillion dollar note, a symptom of their world record inflation. This note cannot buy anything, not even a loaf of bread and certainly not any advertising, but it can become the advertising, it can be a powerful reminder about Zimbabwe’s plight and the need to hold someone accountable.
