Cubs Ripped from Moms for Eufaula Chamber Event
Despite being advised that the sideshow the Eufaula Chamber of Commerce booked for Whole Hawg Weekend travels the country 50 weeks a year offering pay to play with cubs as young as 5 weeks old (which is illegal) they have ignored the facts. The Chamber knows these tiny cubs will be used for a money making scheme where the public will be charged to pet the cubs and have their photos taken and is even advertising the display on their website!

In all our years of sending out a monthly AdvoCat newsletter, this is the closest I have ever come to not getting one out to our supporters.

Conservation and Protecting Habitat
We have known this since the dawn of man, but apathy towards this great truth will be the downfall of man. Throughout time man has conquered and destroyed islands and peninsulas and then vanished from these lands for years until the land could recover from the abuse. Extinction has played itself out within the limits of these isolated areas and is a revelation of the future.
History always repeats itself and we must learn from the mistakes of our ancestors. The Greek philosopher wrote of Atlantis Read More
