RANGELEY – A management plan is being adopted to reduce the resident population of Canada geese in the town and Lake Rangeley area that calls for the use of carbon dioxide to euthanize waterfowl.

The geese have become very abundant and accustomed to human presence and an imminent threat to human health, authorities said.

“This behavior has led to an alarming amount of droppings in recreation areas that can spread disease to people, and has resulted in damaged lawns and costly cleanup and repair efforts,” said state manager Robin Dyer. of (US Department of Agriculture) Animal and Plant Health Inspections, Wildlife Services, who is also a certified wildlife biologist, wrote in an email. “In this situation, Wildlife Services worked with the cooperator for over a year, attending meetings and providing many non-lethal options, including harassment techniques and chemical application options that remove the lure. lawn for the geese.”

Non-lethal methods failed to remedy the situation due to the overabundance of geese.

“After consultation with the USDA and a public comment period, the Goose Damage Management Plan has been authorized by the (Rangeley) Board of Breeders,” Rangeley City Manager Joe Roach wrote in a statement. an email. “The approved plan was then sent to me for operational implementation with the wildlife experts.”

There was a 15-day period, from April 29 to May 13, during which people could comment on the proposed damage management plan.

Roach estimated there were about 75 to 100 geese. Geese frequent the beach, the city park and green spaces and other places. There are also geese at the airport, which Roach says may belong to the same group.

Resident Canada geese are those that breed and nest in the United States, Dyer wrote. The population of these residents increased 16 times between 1970 and 2009 (from 230,000 to 3.89 million). Aviation collisions and damage claims for resident Canada geese have increased at the same time. In urban areas they have few predators and hunting cannot be used to control the population, she wrote.

Wildlife services only respond when the public or partner agencies ask for help. The service is licensed to deal with wildlife damage and must follow all rules, laws and regulations set forth by wildlife management agencies.

Given the seriousness of the situation, the abundance of geese and the imminent threat to human health and safety, wildlife services have been asked to lead a capture effort that will result in euthanasia humane geese,” Dyer wrote.

Wildlife Services “strictly adheres to American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines for humane euthanasia which, in this case, requires the use of carbon dioxide. Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) has become a serious concern among birds nationwide and can be transmitted to many species of waterfowl, including geese. This disease not only jeopardizes the health of wild birds, but has an even greater impact on domestic poultry populations.” , wrote Dyer.

Due to the great concern over avian influence, species that may carry the disease should be treated with extreme caution. disposal of carcasses cannot be given or come into contact with other birds, according to Dyer.

“For this reason, carcasses will be composted in a manner consistent with all disease precautionary measures. Killing and lethal disposal are results authorized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the governing agency for all migratory birds) and approved by the Maine Department of Wildlife of Inland Fisheries,” she said. writing.

One dog killed, another seriously injured by deer attack in Sandy https://brainethics.org/2022/06/22/one-dog-killed-another-seriously-injured-by-deer-attack-in-sandy/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 03:54:38 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/22/one-dog-killed-another-seriously-injured-by-deer-attack-in-sandy/

SANDY, Utah — Pet owners in a Sandy neighborhood are sending out a warning after a dog was killed by a deer and another was seriously injured.

Residents of Dimple Dell Heights tell FOX 13 News that stray deer are common in the winter, but they’ve noticed an increase lately.

Dave Ross said on Thursday the deer attacked his shih tzu, Griz, in his backyard. Griz has six broken ribs and twenty staples holding his wound closed.

“They said he probably wasn’t going to make it. They recommended euthanasia,” Ross said. “When I came out, he was lying there, unable to move.”

A few days after Griz’s attack, Ross noticed deer in the yard of his neighbor, Ty Erickson. He called Erickson to warn him, but by evening it was too late.

“I got out, it was sort of our last resort, and found him lying on the side of the house. You could tell he had been stepped on,” Erickson said.

The Erickson family’s poo Yorkie, Tigz, did not survive his injuries.

“He is our world. We always joked that he was human, and I think most people would tell you that about their animal,” he said.

There is a fence surrounding the entire garden of Erickson and Ross. Yet the deer hops.

“We’re guessing either coming out of the dog door or coming back they had a confrontation in a tight area and that was it for him,” Erickson said.

The Division of Wildlife Resources told FOX 13 News it could be a doe protecting her fawn.

Both Erickson and Ross contacted the town of Sandy and DWR. Ross told his story to the city council at Tuesday night’s meeting.

“Dogs usually scare away deer. Which is why this recent thing with Dimple Dell’s little dog is pretty rare. We don’t see that very often,” said Sgt. Greg Moffitt with the Sandy Police Department. The city’s animal services division falls under the department.

Ross said he recently stared at the deer in his backyard and it took a long time for the creature to finally run away. The two neighbors don’t know what to do.

Euthanasia and relocation are outside of Sandy’s animal services division, according to Moffitt.

The Wildlife Resources Division said it may consider euthanasia if the deer become “too aggressive”.

Erickson and Ross hope their neighbors are now aware of the risks of wildlife wandering onto their property.

“I hear a lot of people, ‘Oh, they’re so cute, I love seeing them grazing in my garden,'” Erickson said. “And that’s what most of us think, but now when you start hearing that, it only takes one time.”

“[Deer] aren’t the adorable little things we think they are,” Ross said.

The Division of Wildlife Resources advises Utahns to keep space away from deer and not feed the animals. The town of Sandy has an ordinance that prohibits people from feeding them.

The Iranian director covers “Whose Life Is It Anyway?” https://brainethics.org/2022/06/20/the-iranian-director-covers-whose-life-is-it-anyway/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 14:14:45 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/20/the-iranian-director-covers-whose-life-is-it-anyway/

TEHRAN – Iranian director Saeid Heshmati will revive “Whose Life Is It Anyway?”, the play by British playwright Brian Clark, which he directed in Tehran in June and July 2021.

His troupe will hold its first performance on Wednesday at the Shahrzad Theater Complex, which will host the group until July 1.

Nima Hashemiseresht, Hedyeh Hashemi, Kimia Khalaj, Ali Riahi and Donya Madani are the main cast members.

The band will perform “Whose Life Is It Anyway?” based on a Persian translation by Ahmad Kasaipur.

The play was directed by several other Iranian directors.

Farid Adhami directed it at the Tabriz Theater in the city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran in 2019.

Additionally, Askan Kheilnejad staged the play at Tehran’s Iranshahr Theater Complex in 2014. Ken Harrison was portrayed by Navid Mohammadzadeh, winner of the Orizzonti Award for Best Actor for his role in “No Date, No Signature” at the 74th Venice Film Festival. in 2017.

It is a play that Clark adapted from his 1972 television play of the same title. The stage version premiered in 1978 at the Mermaid Theater in London, then opened on Broadway in 1979. The play features a paralyzed sculptor.

Set in a hospital room, the action revolves around Ken Harrison, a sculptor by profession, who has been paralyzed from the neck down in a car accident and is determined that he can die.

Clark makes arguments both for and against euthanasia and to what extent the government should be allowed to interfere in the life of a private citizen.

By portraying Ken as an intelligent man with a useless body, he leaves audiences with conflicting feelings about his desire to end his life.

A film adapted by Reginald Rose and directed by John Badham was released in 1981, starring Richard Dreyfuss, John Cassavetes and Christine Lahti.

Author David Benedictus adapted the play into a novel, which was also published in 1981.

Clark, best known for “Whose Life Is It Anyway?”, was born in Bristol, UK, the son of a blacksmith.

He was educated at the University of Nottingham. He married Maggie Clark, his first wife, and raised two sons. Clark taught at schools, colleges and universities and was a member of the drama department at the University of Hull from 1968 to 1972.

His credits also include other TV plays including “Easy Go”, “Operation Magic Carpet”, “The Saturday Party”, and “The Country Party”.

Upcoming Westminster Kennel Club show focuses on vet welfare https://brainethics.org/2022/06/18/upcoming-westminster-kennel-club-show-focuses-on-vet-welfare/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 20:05:14 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/18/upcoming-westminster-kennel-club-show-focuses-on-vet-welfare/ NEW YORK — Dogs are in the spotlight, but Westminster Kennel Club’s upcoming show also shines a light on a human issue: the mental health of vets.

Along with the top Vet of the Year award to be presented on the final day of the show on Wednesday, the club is donating $10,000 to a charity focused on the psychological well-being of veterinary professionals.

It’s emotional new territory for the 145-year-old event at a time when the coronavirus pandemic and a changing culture have laid bare the internal struggles of people, from school children to healthcare workers to college athletes and professional sports stars.

For vets, too, the pandemic has added new strains — exhausted customers, surging case numbers and more — and amplified long-standing ones.

“We love what we do, and there’s a certain mystique about working with animals – a lot of people think we play with puppies all day. But there’s a lot behind that,” the chairman of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, José Arce of San Juan, Puerto Rico. He hopes the Westminster Prize will educate people about the welfare of vets.

The show began with an agility trial on Saturday and continues Monday through Wednesday, with the Best Show prize being awarded live on Fox Sports’ channel FS1 on Wednesday night. For the first time, select stocks will also appear on FOX Deportes in Spanish.

Nearly 3,500 dogs – the most since the 1970s – are expected at the historic Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, said show co-chairman David Haddock. The more than 200 breeds and varieties include two newcomers, the mudi and the Russian toy.

It’s the second year in a row that pandemic concerns have moved America’s most famous dog show to its June date and suburban outdoor venue, rather than New York’s Madison Square Garden in winter.

Westminster has awarded scholarships to veterinary students since 1987, but the new award recognizes a practicing veterinarian. The first winner, Dr. Joseph Rossi, treated numerous show dogs at North Penn Animal Hospital in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, and his Norwich terrier Dolores and his wife won the breed at Westminster in 2020.

Co-sponsored by pet insurer Trupanion, this honor comes with a contribution to MightyVet, which offers mentors, courses and other support on topics such as work-life balance, managing difficult conversations with clients and looking for signs that colleagues might be in serious distress.

“We want to make sure our animals are taken care of, but to do that we need to make sure our vets are taken care of,” said Westminster spokeswoman Gail Miller Bisher.

Concerns and research about burnout, depression, and suicidal tendencies among veterinarians have pervaded the field for decades.

But the issue gained greater attention after a 2019 study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medicine Association showed a higher proportion of deaths from suicide among American veterinarians than among the general population. Various other professions have higher than average suicide rates, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As in human medicine, veterinarians feel the pressure to handle emergencies, care for the sick — and, often, start careers with six-figure student debt.

Veterinarians, however, also have a responsibility to advise animal owners about euthanasia and to perform it.

There are emotionally painful and ethically trying times when people can’t let go of a suffering animal – or, conversely, can’t afford a potentially life-saving treatment. (Some charities and veterinary facilities offer financial assistance.) Even when euthanasia isn’t under discussion, it’s difficult to communicate with distressed pet owners and deal with cases that don’t go as hoped.

“As a veterinarian, it hits us hard,” Rossi said. “We love animals, and that’s why we do this.”

In an average week, many veterinarians or other staff seek one-on-one advice for a problem — work-related or not — from veterinary social worker Judith Harbour, who also works with pet owners at Schwarzman Animal Medical Center in New York.

Vets need to be able to go from crisis to crisis at AMC, which treats more than 50,000 animals a year and has a 24/7 emergency room and highly specialized care.

“But there has to be a time when the difficult experiences are dealt with,” Harbor says. She aims to help vets and other staff talk about these experiences “in a productive way, it’s not just a ventilation session.”

She advises them to focus on their inner motivations and values, to be kind to themselves, and to remember that many situations don’t have perfect solutions.

The American Veterinary Medicine Association also offers help, from free suicide prevention training to a “certificate of workplace wellness” program that engages entire veterinary practices in learning about topics like such as feedback, conflict management and the promotion of diversity and inclusion.

The pet-owning public also has a role to play, says Arce.

“We understand how passionate people are about their pets and the health of their pets, but treating your vet roughly because you’re stressed, because your pet is sick, is not the way to go. “, did he declare.

“We try to help you with everything we can.”

San Antonio Animals Alive! launches Code Red appeal for foster homes https://brainethics.org/2022/06/14/san-antonio-animals-alive-launches-code-red-appeal-for-foster-homes/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 21:04:03 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/14/san-antonio-animals-alive-launches-code-red-appeal-for-foster-homes/ A local animal shelter says adoptions are down and the number of people willing to take in is lower than normal, which will lead to possible euthanasia due to lack of space.

Last week, San Antonio Pets Alive! issued a “code red”, a situation where 25 or more dogs and puppies can be euthanized due to lack of space at animal care services. SAPA! says he has ‘little or no spaces available to save the animals’

ACS maintains a Ability Euthanasia List on its website for dogs and cats that are about to be euthanized, with euthanasia taking place at 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday.

On ExpressNews.com: Amid extreme temperatures, Metro Health has seen an increase in heat-related illnesses

SAPA! has more than 90 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens in need of foster homes at its shelters, wrote Stephanie Paz Perez, a spokeswoman for the organization, in an email.

“We saw many puppies, kittens and pregnant mothers entering the municipal shelter,” Perez wrote. “Animals in our community are not neutered resulting in the birth of homeless animals. Inflation and cost of living can also be attributing factors to many homeless animals roaming our streets .

“Our adoptions are down, the number of foster families is lower than normal and our rescue partners are also under strain.”

SAPA! is a last-ditch rescue organization that takes in animals from ACS. SAPA’s three sites are currently full, the organization wrote.

Perez wrote that there are currently day-old newborn kittens, senior dogs, puppies, cats and dogs with special medical needs at the shelter.

“They’re all different but have one thing in common,” Perez wrote, “they just want to be loved.”

Portuguese lawmakers approve third euthanasia attempt https://brainethics.org/2022/06/10/portuguese-lawmakers-approve-third-euthanasia-attempt/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 14:39:22 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/10/portuguese-lawmakers-approve-third-euthanasia-attempt/

LISBON, Portugal — Portugal’s parliament voted for the third time in just over a year on Thursday to allow euthanasia, though like the two previous attempts, the country’s Constitutional Court or president can support legislators so that they do not become law.

Lawmakers have approved four bills that would allow euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide in Portugal. A bill introduced by the ruling centre-left Socialist Party passed by 128 votes to 88, with five abstentions. The other three bills, from small center-left parties, carried by almost identical margins.


A few dozen people staged a silent protest outside the parliament building in the capital, Lisbon, during the debate and votes.

Bills require the approval of the head of state to become law. President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa could choose to block the legislation again or send it once again to the Constitutional Court for scrutiny. The rejection of the previous two bills was largely due to unclear wording.

Euthanasia is when a doctor directly administers lethal drugs to a patient. Physician-assisted suicide occurs when patients self-administer the deadly drug, under medical supervision.

Isabel Moreira, a socialist lawmaker who has championed the legislation, said the law “is an invitation to understand others: when in doubt, show tolerance.”

Paulo Rios of the main opposition Social Democratic Party opposed the bill, asking, “Are we not forgetting other responses to serious and incurable diseases?”

Portugal’s top court blocked a bill in March 2021, saying its wording was “imprecise”. In November, the president vetoed a second bill assented to by parliament.

He said further clarification was needed on whether the proposed law would only apply to incurable diseases or whether it could be extended to life-threatening or serious illnesses.

But none of the four new bills address Rebelo de Sousa’s specific concerns. Instead, they attempt to simplify the circumstances in which euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide are justified by referring to “a situation of intolerable suffering, with a permanent injury of extreme gravity or a serious and incurable disease”.

This omission is unlikely to please the President.

The four bills then go to committee, where they will probably be merged into one, before being voted on again and sent to the head of state. This process could take months.

Center-left parties in the predominantly Catholic country have backed euthanasia bills, as they did with laws allowing abortion in 2007 and same-sex marriages in 2010.

]]> ACT government decriminalizes small amounts of drugs including ice cream, MDMA and cocaine https://brainethics.org/2022/06/09/act-government-decriminalizes-small-amounts-of-drugs-including-ice-cream-mdma-and-cocaine/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 06:02:38 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/09/act-government-decriminalizes-small-amounts-of-drugs-including-ice-cream-mdma-and-cocaine/

The ACT will become the first Australian jurisdiction to enact decriminalization for small amounts of illicit drugs. It will include ice cream, heroin, cocaine, MDMA and speed.

This isn’t the first health-based drug legislative approach in the ACT, with the nation’s capital decriminalizing marijuana in 2019.

The particular bill means that users found with personal amounts of the listed drugs will not be charged and instead will be fined, in line with recent changes proposed in New South Wales by the Attorney General. The ACT government says those found above what are considered personal amounts will still face the usual criminal charges.

As it stands, personal use is defined as 2 grams for most illicit substances, 0.5 grams for MDMA (ecstasy), or 0.002 grams for LSD (acid).

Labor backbench Michael Pettersson has launched an inquiry into the proposal to decriminalize small amounts of drugs and appears to have found support from the majority Labour-Green government. He was also behind the decriminalization of marijuana.

The ACT was one of the few places to do drug testing with touring festival Groovin The Moo for a few years before calling it quits this year, possibly in preparation for the move.

ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith weighed in, saying; “We know from research and evidence around the world that criminalizing drug users does not reduce drug use and that treating drug addiction as a health issue improves outcomes for all members of society. community,” further adding “This legislation is part of our broader suite of policies developed in partnership with experts, people with lived experience, and our alcohol and other drugs sector to help those at risk. no longer need to get the help and services they need when they need them.

A 2021 survey found that Canberrans “overwhelmingly” support the decriminalization of drugs with just 1 in 10 supporting imprisonment for drug possession.

If it becomes law, it will conflict with federal drug possession laws, with the federal government able to sue the ACT government and strike down the law as it has done in the past for the euthanasia and same-sex marriage before the latter was adopted at the federal level. .

The government still views drugs as harmful and will continue to disrupt the supply.

What do you think of all this?

Are you ready for the Day of the Lord? https://brainethics.org/2022/06/07/are-you-ready-for-the-day-of-the-lord/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 13:29:54 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/07/are-you-ready-for-the-day-of-the-lord/

“Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! What end do you have? The day of the Lord is darkness and not light, as if a man fled from a lion and a bear met him, or entered the house. and he leaned his hand on the wall and a snake bit him. Will not the day of the Lord be darkness rather than light, even if very dark and dull? Amos 5:18-20 (read v. 18-24)

Are you ready for the Day of the Lord? Most have little fear of this day or its consequences for them. Most assume that all is well in their souls and the judgments of God are far from their minds.

It’s a bit like the days of ancient Israel under the reign of Jeroboam II. Israel became strong again and defeated its enemies. It was a time of prosperity. Yet Jeroboam II continued in the sinful ways of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat. Instead of being a time of repentance and return to the Eternal God who had shown mercy to his people, they continued in idolatry and disregard of the commandments of God. see 2 Kings 14:23ff.

So today our people – even our churches – live in prosperity and are secure in their sinful ways. They disregard the teaching and worship of the Bible and serve gods fashioned in their image and way of thinking. Our nation’s laws are made to protect abortion, euthanasia, immorality, sexual perversion, theft and theft. People assume that all is well and that they are ready for the Day of the Lord but do not see the judgment of the Almighty which is about to fall upon them.

The words of Amos the prophet surely apply (Amos 5:18-24): “Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! What use is it to you? The day of the Lord is darkness and not light, as if a man fled before a lion and a bear met him, or entered the house and pressed his hand against the wall and a serpent bit him: shall not the day of the Lord be not darkness rather than light, even very dark and dull in I hate and despise your feasts and I will feel nothing in your solemn assemblies Even if you offer me burnt offerings and your food offerings, I will not accept them, neither will I look upon the peace offerings of your fat. Take away from me the sound of your songs, for I will not hear the melody of your harps. But judgment flow like waters and righteousness like a river. powerful.

The Day of the Lord for our nation and our people will not bring justification; it will bring judgment and death! Our idolatry and our sins will be exposed for what they are, and our people will discover that their worship and service to God were shams. God did not accept them because their hearts were far from Him and they paid little heed to His Word (cf. Matt. 15:8-9; Isaiah 29:13-14).

And us, and us? Are we ready for the Day of the Lord? Will we be justified by the judgment of God? As Amos prophesied, it is not enough to say all the right words and offer all the right forms of praise. God desires the fruits of true faith! God desires that we trust in his mercy and forgiveness in Jesus Christ, and then also live a righteous and upright life in accordance with his Word. See Isaiah 1:1-20.

What does this prophecy ask us to do? Examine our ways, repent of our sins, turn to the Eternal God for mercy and forgiveness because of Jesus Christ our Savior, then amend our lives and live for the Eternal God in obedience to His Word.

Doing the right things, saying the right words and singing the right hymns are not enough! God calls us – each one of us – to examine our ways and repent, expecting Him for mercy in Jesus Christ and for His help and strength to amend our sinful ways in accordance with His perfect Word. See Psalm 139:23-24; 2 Cor. 13:5; 1 John 1:7–2:6; Micah 6:8; Deut. 10:12-13.

O just and merciful God, we know that the day of your judgment is approaching and that we too deserve your wrath and your punishment. Have mercy on us for Jesus’ sake and forgive our sins, and lead us to walk in your ways and live according to your perfect Word. Amen.

Unregulated Employment Even After 35 Years, Assam Man Demands Nod to Euthanasia | Guwahati News https://brainethics.org/2022/06/04/unregulated-employment-even-after-35-years-assam-man-demands-nod-to-euthanasia-guwahati-news/ Sat, 04 Jun 2022 03:32:00 +0000 https://brainethics.org/2022/06/04/unregulated-employment-even-after-35-years-assam-man-demands-nod-to-euthanasia-guwahati-news/ GUWAHATI: An employee responsible for Assam government labor, whose labor has not been regularized even after 35 years, has written to President Ram Nath Kovind, Governor and Chief Justices of the Supreme and High Court Gauhati’s court to allow him euthanasia on his retirement date of May 30.
Dulal Bora joined the state public works department in 1987 as a call-out worker in Nagaon Division. He became an assistant and is currently a section assistant in the same division but his employment has not yet been regularized.
“I am still a workload employee and if my employment is not regularized before I retire, I will not be entitled to a pension. What should I do then? to end my life and that is why I have requested euthanasia authorization at the highest levels,” Bora told TOI from his home in Nagaon.
He said he was fighting for justice and not just for himself. “There are hundreds of employees in charge of the job and if I get justice, others will get it too,” he added.
Bora said he annually submits requests to the department for regularization of his work. “I don’t remember when I submitted the first application. The last one was on October 22, 2021 and in response to that on May 11 of this year, the department informed me that my job would not be regularized,” said said Bora.
On May 11, an assistant department secretary, in a letter to Bora (a copy of which is with TOI), informed him that, pursuant to a 2017 high court order, that the appeal roll, the workload and casual workers are “not entitled to regularization of their services with consequent benefits such as retirement and since you are a workload employee, you are not entitled to any retirement benefits.”
Bora said: “The Supreme Court in February this year upheld an order from the High Court of Gujarat, ordering the government to pay the pension benefits to an ad hoc employee who retired after more than 30 years. of services (SL/2022 in State of Gujarat and others against Talsibhai Dhanjibhai Patel)”.
In 2018, the Supreme Court legally sanctioned passive euthanasia in a landmark verdict, allowing patients’ “living wills” to be withdrawn from medical support if they fall into an irreversible coma. ]]>
