Freshly dyed sheep run in view of the highway near Bathgate, Scotland. The sheep farmer has been dying his sheep with nontoxic dye since 2007 to entertain passing motorists.
Editor’s comments: I wonder if the sheep are entertained? So pretty, why do we need to eat them? GG x

BE A VOICE FOR PEACE
The Victorian duck hunting season has begun. Animal Liberation Victoria rescue teams are on the wetlands, preparing to save as many waterbirds as they can when the dawn killings continue.
Each year in Victoria (Australia) the tranquillity of our wetlands is destroyed by a State sanctioned massacre. Starting on Saturday the 21st of March 2015, gun shots will ring out at dawn and then every morning after that for the next three months. Our native water birds will be under attack from thousands of shooters, who are often inexperienced and reckless. Many birds will be shot but not killed outright and will be left to die slow torturous deaths or will drown, unable to swim or fly any further due to painful injuries.
Our native water birds have the right to live unharmed and in peace in their natural home. Please help to end this barbarism, tell our Premier the killing must end now!
Octopus sex is a bit of a mind-meld.
