    Hi BHW! Some of you know me some of you dont! Those that do know that I volunteer for a non-profit and have been getting alot of Press lately do to the viral videos I implemented.

    I found all the News Agencies are quick to pick up our cute viral videos (Bonedigger and Milo... Chimp, Tigers and Wolf play to name a couple) This is great but now I a have a problem. None of these news agencies want to pick up a real cause to save animals because it's not cute and cuddle friendly and doesnt serve a purpose for their News Agencies and thats traffic.

    See the info below: Spread and get the word out! Let's save these animals

    The United States Zoological Association teams up with Joe Exotic And The G.W. Interactive Zoo to rescue 31 exotic animals from being euthanize in 9 days. With the deadline less than 2 weeks away, we are trying to build awareness.

    *Shipping Wars the reality show has donated a truck for travel and will be involved in the rescues. But we still need help

    http://youtu.be/PWeKHdjGG80

    -How many states will we be rescuing from: 3 states
    -How many miles: 7704 total miles will travel
    -How many and what kind of animals above
    9 tigers 6 bears 8 wolves 3 bobcats 1 lemur 1 mt lion 1 african lion 2 lynx
    -Where will the rescued animals go: The GW Zoo in WynneWood OK

    -Why are the animals in danger of being euthanize:

    The places are going out of business because of the changing of laws being passed in States that preciously allowed private exotic animal ownership. The states ban exotic animals for private ownership but doesnt even consider what will happen to these animals. Nor does the government provide them a re-homing service or a budget to ensure the animals are safely moved. The Government should at the very least be paying to move them to other states, This is not a burden the people should have to bare. To either raise the funds to cover expenses to save them or the animals will be euthanized.

    Please help save 31 animals in 9 days
    http://donatezoorescues.usza.us/

    This amazing 31 animal rescue in 9 days is the 2nd biggest rescue in USZA (United States Zoological Association) history. We only have 9 days to raise funds and implement a plan for rescue.

    Just tweeted the page, and also made a $20 donation. Thanks for doing this, these animals have been here long before us, and deserve our help. Well done.

    I donated and shared it on my FB as well. My Wife will share it on hers as well (she's got more followers than I do... lol)

    We hope it's enough - We have a monthly subscription donation to help feed and take care of buffaloes.

    Let 's get some perspective:

    a) Every hour 3 species disappear

    b) There are probably tens of millions of species on the planet

    ... and ...

    "According to IUCN data, for example, only one animal has been definitely identified as having gone extinct since 2000. It was a mollusc."

    Yes correct. Also tigers if not protected can disappear in a decade or less

    http://www.nbcnews.com/id/40298964/...be-extinct-years-if-unprotected/#.UeCKESinbD0

    Also their are more tigers alive in captivity then there are in the wild.

    It's said but without captivity and breeding we would loose this amazing animal in a decade. How sad is that?

    Whats even more of a hang-up is how because of legislators and lobbyist changing states laws and regulations these animals can more than likely die. The government made them illegal and has done nothing to relocate or find these animals proper homes or zoos. They simply expect them to be euthanized. so sad

    Blackhit it is truly an honor. Thank you for your support and the link!

    Its a beautiful thing with this forum can come together for a common and good cause!

    We always have our own agendas and IM techniques. Just think if for one day we pulled our resources what a positive change we can make!

    Donated for tiger. In my country tiger is becoming endangered species.

    I request my fellow members to donate atleast $1 to save these animals.

    I hope BHW alone can save these animals.

    Common Guys, Do it!

    @blackhit - copying your signature for few days.. Thanks.
