Wow! I'm amazed! Your garden looks like something out of a magazine or a fantasy movie. Elrond would be right at home in your garden. Is there any danger for the kids from the animals? OMG An elephant? You have a most blessed life and you MUST be a very fine lady to get so much help! God bless your endeavors.

How very kind of you!! No danger.... the kid(s) are never left alone with an animal that could harm them. But, actually all the animals respond well to love and I have yet to see one of them show aggression, but that does not mean that they are house pets. So, we make sure that when a child/teen is on grounds they are not left on their own. Safety first. Anyway, I bet that all who rescue animals have unique acquired friends.

Most excellent...

Turtles are such relaxing creatures...

Had an australian pig-nosed turtle for almost a decade... Beautiful creature...

He got a shell infection while I was on vacation and never recovered... Lost a very irresponsible friend over it...
Most excellent... br br Turtles are such relaxin... (show quote)

I like watching them interact with the koi.....this is the garden where I go if I need some alone time. I enjoy the art of hōkime, it takes me away from the insults of the world. Because the turtles are out in nature, they rarely get yeast infections on the shell, but they do get other issues and we treat them along with other turtles they are sharing the space with, prevention is worth a pound of cure. I am sorry about your friend and more sorry about the shelled friend.

Nice try, I know you are just trying to defuse the situation but... I recognized it as a cart immediately, I know what a cart like that is like, I can tell you, it would make for a very poor walker.

Most people, like myself, cared more about the substance of the report. And, just to let you know, Kyle is OPP's peacemaker whenever possible. Most of the time he is very affective.

I agree with you. Yes, all too often everyone just reports what everyone else has reported without bothering to examine the facts. They either copy the article as a whole and give credit to the originator or they skim for the facts presented in the article and write their own article without bothering to confirm the facts. When journalists do bother looking into it further to confirm the facts, that is to be commended.

Thank you. This is the reason I read as many "versions" of a report as I can find. Of course photos and videos help the most in small details.

This is not spin....

How about we focus on the fact that we are all outraged at the actions of this disgusting woman, are rather stunned by the decision of the judge who set bail, and are saddened by the loss of life and the pain his friends and family are no doubt feeling...

May our Lord raise him up amongst His Angels and deliver his transgressor unto justice.... Amen

Turtles are very common here, they live in my koi pond and there is a dozen or so varieties of box that live in the swimming/water hole (yes there is a rope to swing on and drop into the hole), and I have a paint that is recovering from being run over by a car (poor fellow) and will, with help from above, survive and I will let him loose in a month or so (just to be safe). Poppa had a Giant tortoise, he got from being passed through generations, but he died of old age when I was a kid.....

OK Pennylynn, thank you.

You are most welcome. For what it is worth, I agree with your position!

Oh media and they are the same,
More BS


If I may, most of the media reports identical information. One reporter puts their story on line and the rest just copy and paste. Often investigation into a report does not happen. Every once in awhile you may get a journalist who goes out and asks questions but, that is rare. So, when one person called the cart a walker, others did not even question the fact. To my knowledge, only the Washington Post took the time...

In my opinion, what the 74 year old man used is immaterial. The facts, as shown in the video, are indisputable. Bishop placed both hands on the back of Mr. Fournier and shoved hard and this led to his death.

Just as I suspected

Last year the farm became a class for students who want to go into veterinary medicine! This fulfilled a dream I had when I started giving homes to the unadoptables.... now kids (high school juniors and seniors) can come and have hands on instructions from my cousin who is a teaching vet.... they can sit in and watch simple surgical procedures and monitor the recovery. I think they get a kick out of putting on their white coats to make their "rounds" and discuss the progress of their patients.

So, I have hawks and eagles, Grey, Lilac crowned and Eclectus parrots, an active skulk of foxes, a badger (who is not grumpy or antisocial), llamas, geese, cows, horses, dogs, cats, a bush baby, a pair of Pygmy Marmosets, a Tufted Capuchins, a declawed mountain lion, a bear that has no teeth (he may get implants to keep his jaw from atrophying), and Clyde (Mary's companion who is a camel), Mary the elephant... and a few other furry family members that include 3 legged deer. All of them rescued with unique problems that make them "unadoptable."

I have the space, permits, and a few cousins who are vets. Local farmers bring their unsellable produce to help feed the animals and road kills (of course tested) provide meat for the cats. The birds get mice and meat (I hate that process) along with grains, nuts, fruits (donated by our local grocery store) and grown in my gardens. So, the cost of care is very low and I have the space..... so why not.... the kids seem to love their science class, and they can then make a real decision for their careers. So.... a win/win! I get to be around bright kids with goals, the land gets grazed and fertilized, the animals get lots of love and care.... and kids that have the drive gets to figure out medical problems and propose treatment (making better vets).

An elephant ???

Yes, he was a rescued animal and an elder. I did not want to cause him greater harm by locating him to a zoo or park as he had a very bad life.... so, I went through the process in getting approval to allow him to live his life in the safety of the farm. He is clever, he knows how to open gates so he has the run of most of the land..... and for some reason he likes the deer that live here..... so he trumpets when he sees the herd, almost as if he is saying hello to them.

What? Is he too lenient?

Edit: I see, she set the bail amount.

Not one lawyer that I know thinks that the bail was right, and I know quite a few lawyers. In fact, the Bishop case was the after dinner topic last evening.

Oh dear Lord, that was heartbreaking to watch.

I was riding horses before I was born--my mom rode until she was 8 months along, my dad and her doctor put a stop to it. I grew up as a cowboy, learned the art of the lasso, and how to fit out a horse for different types of riding--herding cows and branding calves, roping horses, hunting and just fun. I've ridden them slow and fast and when they came unhinged, been thrown more times than I can count. Our Mountain horse was a treasure, that guy was afraid of nothing and he would take you anywhere in any kind of terrain and weather, and that includes swimming across rivers and such. Mostly, I rode bareback like my Indian friends. I love those magnificent animals.

A tie-down is used in both training a fresh broke horse and in certain rodeo events. These cowboys explain the tiedown

Riding a horse into a river with a tie down secured is absolutely insane. I can only hope and pray the kilier of that horse gets his due.

I knew there was something about you that is so very special! The video broke my heart too!!

I say let's wait and see what charges she goes to trial on.

She is due to hear her charges on 21 May. I hope she gets someone other than Judge Hua.

I'm glad I chose to not watch it. I've owned, and worked with horses most of my adult life, and they are, besides dogs, the most wonderful animals to have.
I still have one who was born here. He is rarely ridden, but well fed, and cared for.
He is our largest dog. He just ain't housebroken yet.

Give Mrs. Bunker time........she'll get it done!

So she claims.

I have full faith that there is nothing Mrs. B can not do!!

I have several of these wonderful people living in my barn. They are forgiving and loving. I often have them taken to the pool where they swim.... on their own, and they have a walk out platform (all sides) where they can get out whenever they want. No saddle only a lead rope so if they get into trouble their head can be managed. They are supervised during their swims.... one horse, came to us last year, if you ask her if she want to go swim..... gets all happy and is quick to get to the gate so she can "relax" in warm Epsom salted pool. They all have personalities, unique..... but they all have the same trait, they love!
