Help Ban Animal Abuse Posts on Instagram: Sign & Share Petition

These have been eventful weeks! As urgency on #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies diminished, I happily returned to my neglected Instagram bunny account. But the Instagram rabbit community was in the midst of further uproar: a man in Iran had created an Instagram account and posted videos and taunting photos of the torturing of defenseless rabbits to death. Despite…

Twitter’s African Grey Otto (@keelingrob)

Whimsy, comic relief — we thank our lucky stars for ice-breaking, delight-waking humor. Especially on those dark days. Otto announced plans for #birddominion some weeks ago. The initial story was covered in detail at BirbObserver.blog/the-round-up (Feb 15 ed.). Our bird accounts on Twitter and Instagram are both @Budgiebouquet. Our flock of five has enlisted in…

#CrowdSourcing #Activism: #Bunniesmatterinvegastoo

Last night, it finally clicked: Instagram accounts involved in the post-poisoning evacuation of abandoned pet rabbits from Nevada state property were replicating the Facebook hashtag #bunniesmatterinvegastoo on belated Instagram posts. If those users tweet, however, they haven’t learned the Twitter hashtag #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies (they don’t grace my Twitter radar). Activism in #bunniesmatterinvegastoo has had four apparent…

#LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies Update: Mid-Atlantic

The petition on chang.org opened, to my knowledge, in the wee hours yesterday morning. It had just over 550 signatures when I first saw it; this morning it has nearly 5,000. I have no idea what happened on the ground in #LasVegas yesterday, but where possible, I’ve shepherded the petition along. I am grateful to…

Sign #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies Petition

UPDATE: The petition now has nearly 3,300 signatures. A Change.org petition is now available to help the #lasvegas #rabbits. The petition demands that the #lasvegascounty Sheriff initiate #investigation of the poisonning and death of 30+ rabbits on the grounds of the Nevada state children’s mental hospital. The petition sets forth a brief history of the…

#LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies

Latest update from Dave Schweiger’s FaceBook page is 72 rabbits have been rescued from the State’s hospital site. More are apparently undergoing rescue as I write. I copy Dave’s video of five of the rescued rabbits. The gofundme account for the consortium of associated rescues is apparently now the place to contribute: gofundme.com/bunnies-matterHttps://gofundme.com/bunnies-matter

CALL #Nevada TO ACCOUNT FOR THESE RABBBITS NOW!

UPDATE & CORRECTION: City officials clarified that this state children’s mental hospital site is outside their jurisdiction. It was, in fact, the State agency responsible for the institution that had threatened their extermination earlier.¬† Somebody appears to have succeeded in poisoning at least 30 rabbits at the site. I know of no toxicology reports: News…

Truly Capital!

Blessed to share our apartment with four bunnies currently, I in particular appreciate the attention of the two properly mine, Forrest, the Flemish Giant, and Bunjamin Franklin, the velveteen lop.

Word Prompt –Present

You are present with me always. In my heart. In the heart of my loving and living life. Variously you came to me. Uniquely you touched me. Together you inspire and motivate me. Innumerable pinpoints in a Milkyway sky. Ben. You taught me the confident rabbit is an outgoing rabbit, who wants only to be…

Introspective Moment

Is there a safe time and place for quiet, considered sharing of gentle yet glaringly sentimental moments in life? Or do we just end up appearing tawdry and feeling embarrassed as a matter of upbringing, regardless of when, where and how we post?   As Editor of BirbObserver.blog, I often want to share insights on…

The Debonair Bellhop at The Willard

Of course, since a federal government position can take months or years to land, due to both the hiring process and background investigation, Melville sought a more immediate source of cash for his urban extracurriculars. Notwithstanding having Bronson’s National Identity Card and a ¬†Social Security card counterfeited by clever Harey Potter, Melville sought one further…

Melville Seeks Legitimate Income

Melville wanted cash to enjoy the colorful tourist life of DC. He craved adventure, too. His Georgewashingbun currency having nearly triggered a Secret Service undercove counterfeiting operation, he determined to pursue gainful employment. Word on the street, variously confirmed, said prospective employers would demand a photo ID, Social Security card and completed I-9 Immigration form….
