The Bullfighter SAID….There is a single moment when you see it and you can never go back. If you go back, then you didn’t see it. MAKE THE CONNECTION. “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer – because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.” This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight… the injustice to the animal.
From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

Please take a moment to sign this petition to save Angel’s Gate — a sanctuary that Friends of Animals has visited. Angel’s Gate provides care for diseased, deformed and/or hard-to-adopt and unwanted animals. This type of sanctuary not only extremely rare, but critical. We need more of them, not less. Priscilla Feral, our president, was impressed by her weekend visit to the sanctuary, and we hope you’ll sign this petition to help keep them alive and well.

The rifle shot boomed through the darkening forest just as Damien Mander arrived at his campfire after a long day training game ranger recruits in western Zimbabwe’s Nakavango game reserve. His thoughts flew to Basta, a pregnant black rhinoceros, and her two-year-old calf. That afternoon one of his rangers had discovered human footprints following the pair’s tracks as Basta sought cover in deep bush to deliver the newest member of her threatened species.
Damien, a hard-muscled former Australian Special Forces sniper with an imposing menagerie of tattoos, including “Seek & Destroy” in gothic lettering across his chest, swiveled his head, trying to place the direction of the shot. “There, near the eastern boundary,” he pointed into the blackness. “Sounded like a .223,” he said, identifying the position and caliber, a habit left over from 12 tours in Iraq. He and his rangers grabbed shotguns, radios, and medical kits and piled into two Land Cruisers. They roared into the night, hoping to cut off the shooter. The rangers rolled down their windows and listened for a second shot, which would likely signal Basta’s calf was taken as well.
