    A lot of people on this forum must love animals ;)
    This thread is for animal lovers of all kinds to unite and talk about their favorite species and favorite things about animals!
    You can talk about any animal
    Domesticated
    Exotic
    Wild
    And even cartoon animals!
    Anything you want!


    ENJOY THIS THREAD



    I'm going to start with my favorite animal:


    My favorite animal is the gray wolf. I love wolves, even though they get a bad reputation for being vicious man-eaters. I think differently about these magnificent creatures. They are more afraid of you then you are of them.

    In a previous thread, I referenced my in-laws farm animal sanctuary in southern Ontario, Canada. Abused and abandoned farm animals are taken in by my
    sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. Here, they live out their lives in peace and with great care and affection, from their providers. Here are some pics.

    I don't really have a favorite animal, but maybe you'll enjoy these photos from a local zoo. Most animals are rescues that cannot be returned to the wild.

    Very interesting photos cveski!
    We've got turkey vultures ALL over where we live, just a couple days ago, an opossum got hit, and there were a few vultures eating it.
    I love the close up pic of the wolf's face and the foxes too! :)

    I'm watching Animal Cops on Animal Planet right now, some of the people on it make me sick, the way they treat animals. Abusing and neglecting them, its just sad. :(

    Enjoy.

    Hi Amy and Co.,

    At times, a series called Monkey World is aired on UK TV. It's most entertaining and carries a serious message about the conservation of our primate species.

    This links to their website. http://www.monkeyworld.org/

    I expect Hayles has visited. It's not that far from her place of work and home.

    I do hope your thread catches on, Amy.

    I will dig out and post photos in good time.

    I enjoyed visiting urban farms in Dartford, Kent and in the London Docklands close to a station called Mudchute.
