HAMLET

So, I’m reading Shakespeare’s Hamlet. And it’s got a ghost in it, and when the ghost appears to these two characters, in the beginning of the play, they see it and tell a third character, Horatio, essentially, “Dude, you talk to the ghost, you went to college.”

Ladies and gentlemen, my college degree qualifies me to talk to ghosts. Thank you Shakespeare.

Under pregnant skies the DSWT funded mobile veterinary team moved in for the second veterinary treatment of the day on the 15th of September.  A magnificent bull, one of Africa’s monuments, together with a group of bull friends (Askari’s), wandered the plains of Tsavo with a wound clearly visible to the DSWT pilot (Neville Sheldrick) who identified him being in trouble from the air.  

With storm clouds moving across the plains, KWS Veterinary Officer Dr. Poghon took off in the DSWT helicopter with pilot Humphrey Carter, with anesthetising darts at the ready.  On the ground the vehicle and veterinary ground team positioned themselves for rapid response.  At 1.00pm the bull was darted and conveniently fell onto his left side giving easy access to his injury.  His Askari companions had to be driven away from the bull’s side by the helicopter in order to allow the team to treat the patient uninterrupted.

By this time the rain was pouring, which was the first rain of the season; much needed, but difficult conditions to work in.   Dr. Poghon had a lot of cutting to do in order to remove the dead tissue which was forcing its way out of the wound; obviously caused by a poisoned arrow.   Once the wound was clear and clean, and long acting antibiotics were administered, the bull was given the revival drug.  All this took just 30 minutes and the bull was back on his feet unassisted despite the slippery mud, whilst the ground team observed from a distance.  By now Dr. Poghon was in the front of the helicopter dripping wet, covered in mud and watching from the air as this magnificent animal rose from the ground and re-joined his friends who were waiting some distance away.

Thanks to the aerial surveillance provided by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s aircraft,  this irreplaceable treasure was found in time, and the KWS and DSWT teams were able to effectively and efficiently save his life.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Tsavo teams together with the Kenya Wildlife Service have been able to save 11 elephants in this area from poisoned arrow wounds in the past two weeks alone.

From David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Sept. 18 update.  It’s believed that there are less than 100 big tuskers left in Africa.  Always say no to ivory!

Great blog. I'm vegan, but people can eat what they want to eat, and anyone who tries to police that is an asshole.

I fucking hate vegan apologists. As a vegan you stand for the rights of every animal, therefore you should always condemn the eating of meat(ect.).

If you think it’s ok for others to live a non-vegan lifestyle you may as well be living a non-vegan lifestyle yourself.

Spoken like a true member of the Westboro Baptist Church. Wait, I mean ‘vegan’.

As a vegan, your job is to do whatever you do, and leave other people the fuck alone.

I’ll leave other people alone when other people stop abusing animals.

And the Westboro Baptist Church will stop harassing the funerals of soldiers when we start violently persecuting gay people and outlaw homosexuality.

See that vileness? That’s you vegan.

haaaa, this is so accurate.

go you, anon. i’m glad that you aren’t creepy and unusually interested in someone else’s diet. also go you for respecting human beings and animals on the same level, not putting animals before people.

just great job, anon. you’re not the kind of vegan other vegans are embarrassed and disgusted to be associated with.

I have been a vegan for twelve years and I have never felt the urge to be unusually interested in what someone else eats. This is why I don’t associate with tumblr vegans.

No, those that consume animal products on not scum. If you get down to it, are your products passing through the hands of underpaid migrant worker?

I bet you don’t check or even care. Veganism is about raising awareness about what is happening to other animals, not putting them before human beings.

Thank you kind vegan.

That’s different.

WBC want death.

Vegans want to stop it.

Blablabla. Comparing vegans to the Westboro Baptist Church is so done already.

"leave other people alone" they say, as they take the life of an animal. 

hypocrites. 

Vegans are stupid. Look, this one doesn’t even know the definition of ‘people’.

No, it’s the same. You want other people to live like you, and you insist on being vile, abusive, and harassing until they do. WBC tactics = You

Leave people the fuck alone.
