Sick bald eagle found in Arkansas likely suffering from lead poisoning

In addition to lead-based bullets, lead fishing lures are another major source of lead poisoning for birds and other wildlife. It should all be banned, and is but one of the many ways that hunting and fishing are detrimental to wildlife, other animals, and the environment.

Arkansas sheriff's deputy fired after dog shot

Finally! Shot for being canine happens far too often. It's good to see some repercussions for the perpetrator, albeit he should be charged with animal abuse. How about the teacher who just got off after having fed a live puppy to an alligator, and in front of students. There is too little justice in this world.

Again, live turkeys tossed from plane at Arkansas festival

Wow, talk about a town without pity, or compassion, or decency. Anyone who is so depraved as to commit or support such a cruel act is a degenerate who does not belong in civilized society. What a disgrace they are to Arkansas and to humanity in general. Disgusting.

6 turkeys tossed from plane on Arkansas festival's first day; 5 survive

Such blatant animal abuse could only be appreciated by sadistic and/or ignorant people. This egregious cruelty is an ugly mar on Arkansas's image, which is already considered by many to have a throwback culture. Those who insist on continuing this asinine ritual are reinforcing that image and doing a great disservice to the state by torturing these birds and promoting animal abuse. They are a disgrace to all decent Arkansans, and Arkansas officials should have enough sense to put a permanent end to it.

Eerie feeling: The songs fish sing

How sad that instead of appreciating fishes as the wondrous, sentient beings that science has shown them to be, Mr. Sutton and others try to kill them. It's not sport, it's animal abuse.
