God loves Animals, check out the Bible and "search" for some animals:

24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.-Genesis 1

    " Balaam's Donkey
    (see Numbers 22
    21 Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the princes of Moab. 22 But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, she turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat her to get her back on the road.
    24 Then the angel of the LORD stood in a narrow path between two vineyards, with walls on both sides. 25 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam's foot against it. So he beat her again.
    26 Then the angel of the LORD moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. 27 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat her with his staff. 28 Then the LORD opened the donkey's mouth, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?"
    29 Balaam answered the donkey, "You have made a fool of me! If I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now."
    30 The donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?" "No," he said.
    31 Then the LORD opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown.
    32 The angel of the LORD asked him, "Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me. [c] 33 The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If she had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared her."
    34 Balaam said to the angel of the LORD, "I have sinned. I did not realize you were standing in the road to oppose me. Now if you are displeased, I will go back."
    35 The angel of the LORD said to Balaam, "Go with the men, but speak only what I tell you." So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.
    36 When Balak heard that Balaam was coming, he went out to meet him at the Moabite town on the Arnon border, at the edge of his territory. 37 Balak said to Balaam, "Did I not send you an urgent summons? Why didn't you come to me? Am I really not able to reward you?"
    38 "Well, I have come to you now," Balaam replied. "But can I say just anything? I must speak only what God puts in my mouth."
    39 Then Balaam went with Balak to Kiriath Huzoth. 40 Balak sacrificed cattle and sheep, and gave some to Balaam and the princes who were with him. 41 The next morning Balak took Balaam up to Bamoth Baal, and from there he saw part of the people.

    "..Although there's no word yet on which chemical may be to blame in the water, hormone-disrupting chemicals are suspected, since they are known to cause birth defects and kill young. It's also possible that some natural toxin or pathogen may be doing the damage. ..
    Taking place against a backdrop of the worldwide decline in amphibians, the deformities could signal a dangerous imbalance, and might be something that affects people, not just wildlife. Says Dr. George Lucier, director of the NIEHS environmental toxicology program, "We know that something in the water, including groundwater, is extraordinarily potent in malforming frogs. We now need to determine if people are at risk. The causative agent or agents could be chemical contaminants or natural products such as pond plants or algae....

    A Plague of Frogs (book) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "...In that same month (August 1995), Dennis and Rhonda Bock found many deformed frogs near their lake in Brainerd, Minnesota. At first they were unconcerned, thinking the appearance of these frogs was a freak, but natural occurrence. However, as more reports of frog deformities came from the rest of the state, they grew concerned and called the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). While the DNR could not do anything about the frogs, they sent the information on to David Hoppe, a herpetologist at the University of Minnesota Morris campus. Hoppe was unable to come to the Bock's lake until October, because of previous commitments. When he did manage to go to the Bock property, Hoppe was very surprised, as the Bocks lived on a relatively large natural lake, rather than on the small farm ponds where others had reported deformed frogs. The presence of these deformities in both natural and man-made bodies of water cast doubt on the theory of chemical contamination, as the larger, natural lakes should not have been as susceptible to harboring high concentration of pollutants as smaller, man-made agricultural ponds.
    The next year Hoppe, Helgen and McKinnell obtained a $150,000 grant from the state to study the frog deformities. Even more sightings of deformed frogs were reported that year. Short on funds, the MPCA managed to successfully confirm 21 sites with deformed animals. Of the 3000 deformed frogs collected, just under 12 percent had deformities. However, there was a considerable variance in the incidence of deformities between sites and between collection intervals at the same site. As deformed frogs were more systematically collected and dissected, there was considerable evidence of internal abnormality. Digestive systems and reproductive systems were especially hard hit, with some frogs "starving to death, despite being stuffed to bursting with food". As the summer of 1996 progressed, Hoppe paid more attention to the Bock lake. Although the frogs at the lake seemed normal at the beginning of the summer, the number and variety of deformities rose dramatically as the season progressed....
    The story then takes a detour and discusses the findings of Martin Ouellet, a French-Canadian biologist who was studying the effect of agricultural chemicals on frogs in the St. Lawrence river valley. Ouellet found that the frogs in agricultural ponds developed deformities at a significantly higher rate than frogs in natural control environments. He had seen and noted the same abnormalities that were being discovered in Minnesota. He became convinced that the deformities were being caused by agricultural chemicals....

    New Reports of Deformed Frogs Trigger U.S. Ecological Alarms By William Souder Washington Post, January 29, 1997

In a few weeks, David Hoope, a herpetolotgist, will awaken three pairs of deformed northern leopard frogs from their hibernation in the lab and attempt to breed them.

    Studies offer new insights into causes of deformed frogs, By William Souder | Monday, Aug. 17, 2009
    William Souder is a Minnesota journalist and the author of "A Plague of Frogs." His most recent book, "Under a Wild Sky," was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
    "...It's been 14 years since a group of middle-schoolers on a field trip discovered frogs with bizarre leg malformations at a farm pond near Henderson, in the Minnesota River Valley an hour southwest of the Twin Cities. Some of the amphibians had extra hind legs that appeared as pale, shrunken imitations of normal limbs. Some were missing legs, or had legs that were partial or misshapen. In the months that followed, frogs with the same and even worse limb deformities were discovered in dozens of wetlands across Minnesota and Wisconsin, and it was learned that similar outbreaks were already under investigation in Canada's Quebec province....
    ..Researchers eventually discovered that a species of tiny aquatic parasite called a trematode imbeds itself in the developing leg tissue of tadpoles and causes them to grow additional legs. Because much of the attention had focused on frogs with extra legs, the finding was widely reported as the end of the story...
    "When I got into this, I initially thought some kind of pollutant was involved," says Ballengée. He changed his mind, he says, when he observed in the field dragonfly nymphs "grazing" hungrily on toad tadpoles as they massed in the shallows just before metamorphosis. "I think we've found another big piece of the puzzle," says Ballengée. "Selective predation is the second of the two prime causes of deformities." ...
    Proposing parasites and predators as a general explanation for frog deformities is a kind of "biology gone wild scenario" says Lannoo, one that masks other possible causes and potentially serious environmental degradation. There are, Lannoo argues, thousands of frog species in the world, and broad conclusions based on what happens to one or two species in a handful of wetlands are "tenuous at best." Lannoo says it's important to remember that a host of chemicals — pesticides, hormone mimics, metals, PCBs — are known to cause developmental abnormalities in frogs, and lab studies of chemical exposure have produced frogs with deformities comparable to those in nature....


  • UPDATE: There's a bear in a tree. In Morris, Published April 28 2010

  • Law enforcement is asking the public to stay away from the neighborhoods around East 9th Street and Oregon Avenue, where a bear has taken refuge in a tree
    "There's a bear in a tree in Morris.
    Let's repeat that: There's a bear in a tree. In Morris.
    Granted, that's not quite as strange as, say, seeing a kangaroo romping down Atlantic Avenue. But the burly black beasts typically are denizens of the northern forests of Minnesota, not the flat, open fields of West Central Minnesota.
    But, nonetheless, there it is, perched in a tree near the intersection of East 9th Street and Oregon Avenue.
    Law enforcement and state wildlife officials have concluded that the best approach is to let the bear come down from the tree when it's ready and to keep the public as far away from it as possible.
    Police have set up barricades on East 9th, East 8th and East 7th streets and at intersections on Oregon and California avenues. Law enforcement is asking the public to stay away from the area since the bear likely won't descend until it feels safe.
    Stevens County Sheriff's Posse members, police officers and Morris firefighters are volunteering their time to man intersections to keep vehicle and pedestrians outside a two-block area around the bear, said Morris Chief of Police Jim Beauregard.
    "It's going good so far, we're being patient," Beauregard said. "With wildlife, you have to be patient sometimes, and a lot of times we humans aren't very good with that."
    "It would make our job a lot easier if people don't come down here," said Morris Police Officer Robert Velde.
    Law enforcement first heard the bear was in town at about 11 p.m. Tuesday night. A woman reported that she hit the bear with her car. However, there was no damage to the car so the collision probably was minor, law enforcement stated.
    Morris police responded and attempted to chase the bear out of city limits, but the bear instead climbed the tree and spent the night there.
    Word spread quickly Wednesday morning and dozens showed up. People, including a group of daycare kids, walked up close to the tree to take a look. Police estimated that at least 100 people were around the area, watching, photographying and videotaping the bear.
    The bear, wedged fairly securely in a crook in the tree, occasionally looked around at the commotion below and at times appeared to be napping. If the bear does move, it probably will be at night, DNR officials said.
    "Poor bear, I'm sure he'd like nothing more than to get out of town," said Kevin Kotts, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Area Wildlife Supervisor. "The reason bears go into trees is because they're scared, and this one certainly isn't going to move if there are a lot of people there."
    DNR Conservation Officer Tony Anderson said officials weighed the options: tranquilizing the bear was dismissed. No one in the area has a tranquilizer gun, the shooter would have to be fairly close to the animal to ensure a direct hit, and even if the tranquilized bear didn't fall to its death, officials couldn't come up with an efficient and safe procedure for carrying it out of the tree.
    Killing the bear also isn't feasible since it would involve shooting a high-powered rifle, into the air, in a residential area.
    Waiting the bear out is the only way, Anderson said.
    "That's the best outcome for the bear, for sure," Anderson said. "In cases like this, it's a tough decision to make."
    Anderson estimated the bear's weight at about 150 pounds and that it's likely about 18 months old. It probably was kicked out of its den by its mother and it has been wandering, searching for territory, he said.
    Kotts said he's been in contact with DNR bear researchers in Grand Rapids, who advised leaving it alone and letting it make an exit when it feels comfortable.
    Neither Kotts nor Anderson can recall a bear sighting in the Morris area. Kotts said he has received reports of bear wandering in Pope and Douglas counties, which have more wooded areas. That the bear made its way to Morris signals that it's probably a male.
    "It's common for young males to be wondering," Kotts said.

  • Black Bear Sitting in Tree in Morris, Police Urge Onlookers to Stay Away

  • "MORRIS, MINN. - On Tuesday evening, people in the city of Morris, Minn., were surprised to see an unusual visitor stuck up a tree in a local neighborhood.
    "We have a little excitement here in the city of Morris today. We have a black bear that's up a tree," Police Chief James Beauregard said.
    Around 11:00 p.m. Tuesday, the Morris Police Department received a call from a concerned person that a black bear had climbed up a tree and was not coming down.
    "We road our bikes down to see the bear didn't we," Onlooker Matthew Steen said.
    "The bear was startled by a car and didn't want to come down," Chief Beauregard said. "This isn't a cub, it's a 125 lb male black bear."
    The bear climbed a tree on Oregon and 9th street after being startled by a car.
    As of 5:15 Wednesday evening, the bear was still at the same location. At one point there were more than 200 people looking at the bear.
    "He's a celebrity. We must have had about 200 to 300 people out here already just looking at him," Steen said.
    Law enforcement said something like this hasn't happened in Morris for years.
    "Not in this town. I've seen moose and deer. That's about it. This is the first time we've seen a bear in a tree," Steen said.
    "We are urging everyone to stay out of the area," Beauregard said. "The bear is not posing a threat to anyone, we just don't want anyone else scaring him."
    Local law enforcement began barricading the area and it could take as long as three days to get the bear out of the tree authorities said.
    "It's not unusual for them to stay in a tree for a few days if they feel they are in danger," Beauregard said.
    The Morris City Manager and Minnesota State Patrol assisted the Morris Police Department.

  • Morris bear, Published April 28 2010

  • UPDATE: Bear ends Morris visit early Friday Published April 28 2010 By Tom Larson Morris Sun Tribune
    A black bear that took up residence in a tree three days ago and was the talk of the town in Morris climbed down at 1 a.m. Friday and took off out of town
    "A black bear that wandered into town on Tuesday night ended his brief stay in Morris when he climbed out of the tree he called home on the east side of Morris and headed north out of town about 1 a.m. on Friday.
    The bear stood around in the street near East 9th Street and Oregon Avenue for about five minutes while law enforcement backed off a couple of blocks. The bear cross Highway 28 near the former Anderson Acres building, then took off running to the north, said Morris Chief of Police Jim Beauregard.
    "Fortunately, it was pretty quiet down there," Beauregard said. "He hit a field north of town and away he went."
    It was the best ending the public and law enforcement -- and the bear -- could have hoped for, Beauregard said.
    "It's nice for the people living down there," he said. "We kind of held up their lives for a few days, but they were very considerate of what we were trying to do. The animal survived and it came to a good conclusion."
    On Thursday, law enforcement and wildlife officials expressed concern that the bear might be injured more seriously than previously thought after a woman hit the bear with her car Tuesday night.
    The bear climbed into the tree after police tried to chase it out of town, and then it didn't leave Wednesday night, prompting concern it might be injured. However, Beauregard said the animal appeared healthy and wasn't limping when he left Friday morning.
    Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Tony Anderson said "he's off to do what bears do best: being a bear instead of a spectacle in town."
    There's no feasible way to track the bear's movements without a radio collar, but Anderson suspects the bear will be avoiding towns and people if at all possible.
    "This was by far the best option for everyone," Anderson said, although he added that he's surprised the bear, like the law enforcement officials standing watch, wasn't tempted to stay longer by the smell of the chicken fryer at Willie's Super Valu.
    So the city population has dropped by one, and Beauregard said he doesn't expect that the bear will be promoting Morris as a vacation destination among his family and friends.
    "He'll be telling them, 'Don't go to Morris,' " Beauregard joked. " 'You'll get hit by a car, people will chase you and they won't give you any food.'"

    In 1995, a US Air Force E-3 Sentry aircraft at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska struck a flock of Canada Geese on takeoff and crashed, killing all 24 crew. The accident sparked efforts to avoid such events, including habitat modification, aversion tactics, herding and relocation, and culling of flocks.[11] A collision with a flock of migratory[12] Canada Geese resulted in US Airways Flight 1549 suffering a total power loss after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport, New York City, New York on 15 January 2009.[13] The pilot brought the plane to an emergency 'splash'-landing in the Hudson River causing only minor injuries to the 155 passengers and crew.[14]

    Jesus gave His followers a similar warning, but in even stronger terms. Luke 11 ends ominously with these words: "The scribes and the Pharisees began to assail Him vehemently, and to cross-examine Him about many things" (v.53). In the continuation of this account, Luke says that Jesus compassionately instructed His disciples to "beware" (12:1) but not to worry or be afraid (vv.4-7,22).
    Jesus was promising to guard, protect, and care for them as they went out into the world. He assured them that because He cared for simple things like birds and lilies, they could be certain that He would take care of His "little flock" of believers (vv.24-32).
    We cannot know the future. But we can know this: No matter what comes, we are under the loving, caring, watchful eye of our great Shepherd, who also happens to be the Son of God!

    "While I was digging a trench for my house-yard project (putting pipes to divert water away from basement) I was met by a skunk in one of the trenches. I was fortunate that we were not both in the trench together..weh! It all started with a strong foul smell when I was deep in one of the trenches, which I kept wondering what that smell was. I ended up coming out of the trench as I was emptying a bucket of dirt. When I was about to return to this trench, I saw the critter waddling back and forth trying to get out. Well, I had to finish my project, so thought of using my bucket to "rescue" it out of there. I was fortunate to have a long rope and was far enough away from the skunk if tried to attempt to spray me when it crawled out of the bucket above ground.
    This is where I started videotaping the skunk kept waddling around my house. I would end up finding a hole it started to create in that same trench I found it. I guess it went back to the trench (ending of my video) trying to find that same hole it started to dig...a place to hibernate before the winter was coming!"

  • Mystery Roadkill Prompts DNR Investigation, Updated: 08/03/2011 6:50 PM

  • "Alexandria, Minn. (KSAX) - Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials have been unable to identify a mystery carcass found in Douglas County with certainty, prompting further investigation..
    The dead white mammal was spotted this week on a Douglas County road with five claws, dark tufts of hair on its back and head and long toenails.
    Roadkill is nothing new for Minnesotans, but this curious creature got people talking.
    Lacey Ilse said she was driving near her home on County Road 86, south of Alexandria, when she spotted the mysterious mammal.
    "We saw something in the middle of the road, and we knew it wasn't a dog or a cat, because it didn't have hair. It had a clump of hair and all the rest was just white skin," Ilse said."it's ear was all mis-shaped. To me, it looked like half-human."
    Ilse said she soon posted pictures of the animal on Facebook, and rumors and speculation took off.
    "It just shot out like wildfire. everybody was putting it on their Facebook pages. And then, their friends were putting it on their pages," she said.
    Noelle Jones sent the pictures to KSAX Monday, and after posting them on the KSAX Facebook page that night, more than 175 comments have been posted about the unusual animal, with guesses ranging from a skunk, badger, wolverine, wolf, or even proof of the mythical chupacabra.
    Folks in Alexandria Wednesday had their own ideas.
    "First guess was a badger with like, a case of mange. But then, some other people were saying, like a chupacabra. and after looking at some pictures, I was like, 'you know, it's possible," Jones said.
    "It kinda looks like a 10-year-old wolf," Austin Becker of Alexandria said.
    "Almost looks like a pig, with paws? I don't know, or a wolf," Kaitlin Van Horn of Morris said.
    Glenwood DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Kevin Kotts used the process of elimination to give his answer.
    "It's got five long front claws on each of its front feet, which would be characteristic of a badger," Kotts said. "I ran the pictures past a few other DNR folks that have a lot of trapping and/or fur-bare experience, and they all said, it's hard to be 100 percent sure what it is ... but if it's a Minnesota animal, it's probably a badger."
    But Ilse, and just about everyone else who has seen it, can't be so sure.
    "If you're looking at the top half, it definitely looks like a dog that's kind of been torn apart. But, I'm not sure what to make of the back part," Igor Simanovich of the Twin Cities said.
    "It's a strange animal and i hope we don't have anymore around here," Jane Murphy of Alexandria said.
    "You know how they do their government secret testing on animals? and I know it sounds crazy, but I've never seen an animal like this," Ilse said
    Jason Abraham, with the Department of Natural Resources, said he thinks it may be a domestic dog, but he is still left with questions.
    "The head suggests a canine, very likely a domestic dog," Abraham said. "However, the right front foot appears to have five toes, which is not typical for canines. Also, the long toenails are not typical for an active canine."
    Ilse said some of her guinea hens and cats are missing and suspects the animal or others in the area may be to blame. Several burrowed holes ranging from four to ten inches in size were also spotted near where the animal was found.
    Ilse said Kotts was able to check the creature out Wednesday afternoon and said it's similar to a badger but has a much longer tail than usual, and took the carcass in for further testing.

    24 Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre.[g] He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. 25 In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spirit came and fell at his feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.

    27 "First let the children eat all they want," he told her, "for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

    28 "Lord," she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs."

    29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter."

    30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone."

  • Unique, effective therapy puts people in the saddle by Carra Carr Published by Minnesota Christian Chronicle — March 2011

  • "BROOK PARK — By her senior year of high school, Sara was a shining student and track and field star with a bright future ahead. But everything changed at a friend’s sleepover.
    In the middle of the night, her friend’s father sexually abused her. Confused, scared and full of shame, Sara buried the pain in unhealthy relationships, anorexia and then bulimia—which almost killed her. As her life spun more out of control, she even attempted suicide multiple times.
    In the midst of all this, she visited Changing Gaits, Inc. (CGI).
    At CGI, Sara met Akita, with whom she instantly felt safe. Through Akita’s gentleness and patient listening, Sara’s life was forever changed. Akita helped Sara discover her strengths and weaknesses. She helped Sara set healthy boundaries, and she helped Sara reclaim—and proclaim—her self-worth.
    Yet Akita is not a typical therapist: She is a beautiful buckskin mare. Yes, Akita is a horse. And CGI is not a typical addiction services and behavioral therapy institution.
    The healing bond of horses
    Located in Brook Park, Minnesota (just north and east of Mora), CGI is both a ministry and a certified therapy organization, yet clients and therapists don’t meet in offices; they meet in a stable. And they are accompanied by horses like Akita.
    "In the barn, clients let their guard down a lot quicker than in an office setting,” said Guy Kaufman, founder and executive director of CGI. “Being engaged with horses and the obstacles we set up brings clients through a different thought process [than other therapy techniques]. God uses the horses to bring the client’s darkness out into His light so they may be healed from their afflictions.”
    Using an emerging—but effective—therapy called Equine Assisted Addiction Services (EAAS), certified EAAS horse specialist Kaufman teams with a certified licensed therapist to create individualized programs for each client.
    "EAAS is not riding or horsemanship,” stressed Kaufman, citing that about 90 percent of all therapy exercises with the horses take place on the ground, requiring participants to use non-verbal communication, creative thinking and problem solving to control their horse.
    "Through verbal and non-verbal communication, personal strength and ingenuity, it is possible to begin to control the horse—[which symbolizes] the addiction,” said Kaufman. “Because participants learn very quickly about themselves and can easily relate what they learn to real life situations, this form of therapy has been proven to bring faster results than traditional treatment or counseling alone.”
    From addict to addiction breaker Kaufman has not always been on this side of the saddle, though.
    "I grew up in a dysfunctional family, and I started drinking to kill the pain,” he said. For almost 25 years, alcohol—and his addictive behaviors—ruled him, driving him to more than one suicide attempt.
    Then in 1998 he accepted Christ—and had his last drink.
    "That was truly when I felt the power of the Holy Spirit lift me from my addiction,” he said.
    As Kaufman walked the road to healing, he was introduced to a constant companion who would literally carry him through the toughest times: a black Arabian gelding named Shadow. Through Shadow, Guy realized his calling.
    "As I continued with my own recovery program and walking closer to God, I started dreaming of using horses in helping people in recovery,” he said.
    In 2004, through a series of miraculous events, Kaufman saw God’s dream for his life become reality: CGI opened its stable doors. Since then, Kaufman and his team have heard countless stories of healing much like Sara’s.
    "Thank you so much!” one mother exclaimed in a letter. “I saw more out of my son in 50 minutes than I have in months. Your project is amazing, and I’m proud to be a part. Can’t wait to come again.”
    "It’s a formidable task to accurately describe the depths of gratitude I have,” wrote one teacher of at-risk teens. “[My students] experienced the unfamiliar realization that they had worth! In the disguise of a horse, CGI offered them something they rarely touch in their daily lives—hope.”
    "We are earning a reputation for positive results as clients come from not only the state but from around the country,” said Kaufman.
    High hurdles
    Yet the obstacles have been—and continue to be—many, from almost losing Shadow to finding new land to making ends meet.
    "We are always looking for sponsorship in several areas of our ministry, from our clients—we never turn any away—to caring for our horses to sponsoring the ranch in general,” said Kaufman, noting that CGI is growing quicker than its resources can keep up with. “Faith has kept me going through these last few years, and it’s what keeps us going now.”
    The CGI team continues to take it one day, one life, at a time.
    "Our love for horses, our belief that people can learn from them and the power of the Holy Spirit changes lives,” said Kaufman. “We call this place Changing Gaits as a symbol of what we hope will take place in the lives of those who come here.”
    "[Changing Gaits] has shown me a life through Jesus Christ,” said a thankful Sara at the end of her story. “There is no greater gift I could have received, and they asked for nothing in return. Changing Gaits is a miracle from God.”

  • Dead blackbirds fall again in Arkansas town Associated PressBy JEANNIE NUSS | AP – 2 hrs 24 mins ago (Sunday, January 1st 2012)

  • "LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Thousands of dead blackbirds rained down on a town in central Arkansas last New Year's Eve after revelers set off fireworks that spooked them from their roost, and officials were reporting a similar occurrence Saturday as 2012 approached.
    Police in Beebe said dozens of blackbirds had fallen dead, prompting officers to ban residents from shooting fireworks Saturday night. It wasn't immediately clear if fireworks were again to blame, but authorities weren't taking a chance.
    Officer John Weeks said the first reports of "birds on the streets" came around 7 p.m. as residents celebrated the year's end with fireworks in their neighborhoods.
    "We started shutting down fireworks," he said. "We're working on cleaning up the birds now."
    He said police were working with animal control workers and others to remove the birds and determine a death count.
    "We're not sure if they're going to continue to fall throughout the night. I can't tell you," Weeks said.
    Scientists say the loud cracks and booms from celebratory fireworks likely sent the birds into such a tizzy that they crashed into homes, cars and each other before plummeting to their deaths last New Year's Eve. The birds landed on roofs, sidewalks, streets and fields. One struck a woman walking her dog. Another hit a police cruiser.
    The blackbird die-off, coupled with tens of thousands of dead drum fish that washed up on the shores of the Arkansas River, flung the state into the national headlines and drew conspiracy theorists and filmmakers to the town about 30 miles northeast of Little Rock that shares Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe's last name.
    Some people speculated that the birds had been poisoned; others said their deaths marked the beginning of the apocalypse.
    "It's just got to be a pain in my career," Beebe Police Chief Wayne Ballew said.
    Prior to this New Year's Eve, Ballew said he wouldn't be surprised if people sit out on their front porches in case the winged creatures fall from the sky again.
    "I guess we could have an annual blackbird watch," he said with a laugh. "People can just bring their umbrellas, open them up and walk through the neighborhood and hope they don't get hit."
    Charles Moore didn't plan to have an umbrella at the ready, but said he would have his camera out on New Year's Eve. Last year, he drifted off to sleep before the ball — and birds — dropped.
    "When we got up on New Year's Day and walked out to get the paper, we saw all the carnage out there," he said. "So we thought we would be on the watch for it this time." ___"

  • Why did 4,000 dead birds drop from the sky in Arkansas? By Alexandra Petri

  • "In Arkansas on New Year's Eve, 4,000 blackbirds suddenly and mysteriously fell dead from the sky.
    There are so many great aspects to this story. There's the fact that they cited "a preliminary report conducted by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission." I'm sure the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission is very capable, but I feel like it was in no way prepared for this call. "You say 4,000 birds just spontaneously fell out of the sky and died?" I picture the guy on the end of the line asking. "Have you consumed any substances lately that you feel might be relevant?" When they finally figure out what it is, the two guys who usually make up this commission suddenly have to figure out what on earth they are supposed to do with four thousand dead blackbirds (bake approximately 200 pies? Disappoint approximately 200 kings?).
    Their report suggested the cause of this mass demise was a "sudden and massive trauma." But here are some other reasons:..

    Falling birds likely died from massive trauma By the CNN Wire Staff January 3, 2011 9:17 p.m. EST
    "(CNN) -- The thousands of birds that fell from the sky just before midnight New Year's Eve in Arkansas likely died from massive trauma, according to a preliminary report released Monday.
    The birds, most of which were dead when they were found, were red-winged blackbirds and starlings. They were found within a one-mile area of Beebe, about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said.
    Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the commission, said the birds showed evidence of trauma in the breast tissue, with blood clots in the body cavity and a lot of internal bleeding. All major organs were normal.
    He cited a preliminary report conducted by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission.
    "Further tests will be done to rule out other causes, but the birds suffered from acute physical trauma leading to internal hemorrhage and death. There was no sign of any chronic or infectious disease," the report said, according to the game and fish commission.
    As of Saturday, between 4,000 and 5,000 birds had been found dead, said Stephens.
    Karen Rowe, an ornithologist for the game and fish commission, said the incident is not that unusual and is often caused by a lightning strike or high-altitude hail.
    A strong storm system moved through the state earlier in the day Friday. Officials also speculated that fireworks shot by New Year's revelers in the area might have caused severe stress in the birds.
    Blackbirds do not normally fly at night, and it was not immediately clear what caused the odd behavior. Loud noises were reported shortly before the birds began falling, according to the game and fish commission.
    "The birds obviously hit something very hard and had hemorrhages," said Rowe.
    "Initial examinations of a few of the dead birds showed trauma. Whether or not this trauma was from the force of hitting the ground when they fell or from something that contacted them in the air, we don't know," she said.
    In a seemingly separate incident, some 500 red-winged blackbirds, starlings and grackles were found dead in southern Louisiana in Labarre.
    The birds showed no evident trauma, according to Jim LaCour, a veterinarian with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Samples have been sent to Wisconsin and Georgia for testing, he said."

  • Is Mass Bird and Fish Die Off Connected to Government Testing? , Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones Prison Monday, January 3, 2011

  • "1977 Senate Hearing found that U.S. government had infected hundreds of cities with biological agents
    A mass die off of birds and fish in Arkansas which prompted a response by U.S. Environmental Services has residents asking questions about the cause – could secret government testing be responsible for the carnage?

    Around 2,000 red-winged blackbirds, as well as ducks, fell to their deaths over a 1-mile area of Beebe, Arkansas on Friday night. U.S. Environmental Services workers wore hazmat suits and gas masks as they picked up the dead birds on Sunday.
    An area used by the birds to roost was unaffected, leading officials to conclude that the birds could not have died from an illness or have been targeted for poisoning. Lightning, fireworks and high-altitude hail have been forwarded as possible culprits.
    "I’ve been to Iraq and back and not seen nothing like this,” Beebe resident Jeff Drennan told local Fox16 News on Sunday.
    "You know my kids are out here playing and you don’t know, is it safe?” he added. “They’re walking around with chemical suits picking them up with gas masks and everything.”
    In a related story, 100,000 fish were found dead in Northwest Arkansas. “They were found along a 20-mile stretch between the Ozark Dam and Highway 109 Bridge in Franklin County,” reports Today’s THV 11.

    Scalar weapons that can artificially manipulate the environment could be responsible for the mass die offs. We know for a fact that over a decade ago the U.S. Military Industrial Complex was aware of and involved in the testing of such technology.
    In 1997, Defense Secretary William Cohen stated, "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counter terrorism] efforts."
    The fact that illness or poisoning has been ruled out points to some form of secret testing being behind the mass die-offs.
    The U.S. government has been repeatedly caught engaging in illegal bio-weapons tests over American skies that have maimed and killed not just animals, but humans. The history of US government biological testing includes deliberately infecting Americans with syphilis, malaria and other bacteriological agents.
    From the 1950′s onwards, the U.S. government deliberately engaged in open air tests, spraying major cities like San Francisco and New York with Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii. In 1955, the CIA also released a a bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl in order to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents.
    In 1966, the U.S. Army dispensed Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. 1977 Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirmed that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969, including San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.
    In August 1994, residents in the Oakville, Washington area reported tiny blobs of gelatinous goo raining from the sky, and in 1997 residents in the Everett area of Washington State reported similar a phenomenon.
    Given the history of governments across the world performing unwitting experiments on their populations, the number one suspect in such cases should always be government. Just a few months ago is came to light that in the late 1940′s, “American public health doctors deliberately infected nearly 700 Guatemalans — prison inmates, mental patients and soldiers — with venereal diseases.”
    Indeed, the EPA’s own policy states that government and industry scientists can treat children as human guinea pigs in chemical experiments, which allows pesticides to be tested on mentally handicapped children and orphans.
    In Alex Jones' seminal film Endgame, which can be viewed below, we document countless examples of biological testing and other unwitting experiments conducted by governments in pursuit of bacteriological warfare and population control, including Project SHAD, plague bombs, and the atomic soldiers controversy."

  • Officials probe 'unusual' mass deaths of birds in two states By Josh Levs, CNN January 4, 2011 12:42 p.m. EST

  • "CNN) -- Some of the nation's top experts Tuesday were looking for clues into sudden, mass deaths of birds in two states over New Year's weekend.
    "This one is unusual because of the time period over which so many birds died," said LeAnn White, a field investigator with the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wisconsin. The center, part of the U.S. Geological Survey, is receiving samples from Arkansas, where as many as 5,000 red-winged blackbirds and starlings fell from the sky in a square-mile area in less than an hour on New Year's Eve, according to the Arkansas Fish and Game Commission.
    The center will also examine samples from Louisiana, where 500 red-winged blackbirds, starlings and grackles were found dead in Labarre.
    A preliminary report conducted Monday by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission found that the birds in Beebe, Arkansas, likely died from massive trauma.
    There had been reports of loud sounds in Beebe before the reports of birds falling began to come in. It's possible the sounds made the birds disoriented, and they went into sudden, chaotic flights, crashing into each other and into objects, White said. "You're disturbed, you're disoriented, you're trying to figure out where you are. We have seen some stuff like this before when there's heavy dense fog, and they'll run into towers and power lines," she said.
    Other bird experts agree that that's a likely explanation. Still, the sudden deaths are quite unusual. "It's kind of a freak event," said Greg Butcher, director of bird conservation for the National Audubon Society. "You just don't see these kinds of mass deaths very frequently at all."
    At this time of year, blackbirds are in huge roosts, particularly throughout the southeastern United States, he said. They generally don't fly at night.
    "In the course of a year, about half the birds that are around die -- even under the best circumstances. The life of a bird is brutish and short. But it just usually happens out of the sight of people," said Butcher.
    It's possible that the loud sound that triggered the incident was New Year's Eve fireworks, though officials said the investigation is ongoing.
    "If it had been any other day of the week," Butcher said, he might have suspected people to be behind the deaths. "There's a lot of purposeful killings. ... People really don't like these big roosts. But I can't see anybody doing that on New Year's Eve."
    Doug Inkley, senior scientist with the National Wildlife Federation, said his "first suspicion is that they were frightened and went into a mass panic."
    "I would call this event unusual," he said, "but not unprecedented."
    Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, said the birds showed evidence of trauma in the breast tissue, with blood clots in the body cavity and a lot of internal bleeding. All major organs were normal.
    Karen Rowe, an ornithologist for the commission, said such incidents can be caused by a lightning strike or high-altitude hail. A strong storm system moved through the state earlier in the day Friday.
    The experts CNN spoke with saw nothing surprising in there being a similar report of bird deaths in Louisiana. "It's another one of those coincidences," said White, adding, "I'm really interested to see if there's anything that could possibly be related. I asked about weather conditions there. There's sometimes high-altitude hail." But, she said, so far officials were not aware of "any strange weather patterns" in the area.
    Butcher, with the National Audubon Society, said there may be more reports of dead birds found around the country. "As soon as one of these things hits the airwaves, people are just more sensitive to seeing dead birds around."
    Meanwhile, Arkansas officials are investigating the death of an estimated 100,000 fish in the state's northwest, but suspect disease was to blame, a state spokesman said Sunday."

    The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that California Highway Patrol officers found the dead birds near the roadway on Saturday and called in the state Department of Fish and Game to investigate.
    The officers who found the birds described them as small with brown and black feathers. They were intact and had not been shot.
    The reports come as other, larger bird deaths have been reported in Arkansas, Louisiana and other states.
    Scientists say mass die-offs of wildlife happen regularly, and are usually unrelated and unreported. "

    Hidalgo (film) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "In 1891, a wealthy sheikh, Sheikh Riyadh (Omar Sharif), invited an American, Frank T. Hopkins (Viggo Mortensen), and his mustang horse, Hidalgo, to enter the Ocean of Fire, an annually held three thousand mile survival race across the Arabian desert restricted to the finest Arabian horses bred of the purest and noblest lines....
    A recurring theme in the film is the fact that Hopkins' father was White American and his mother a member of the Native American Lakota tribe. The tribespeople refer to him as "Blue Child" or "Far Rider". As a half-breed, he feels sympathy and pity for his mother's people, who are being driven to extinction by the settlers. However, he does not generally reveal his heritage, especially after the Wounded Knee massacre for which he feels partly responsible. Jazirah, who has become his friend, compares her desire not to wear a veil with Hopkins' heritage; that he mustn't "go through life hiding what God made you.... like me." In the end, he almost doesn't make it, with Hidalgo severly injured, and he himself dying of thirst, Hidalgo struggles up, and they both go the last stretch of the race bareback...

    Dinosaurs - God Created Them When He Made Man from digigraph on GodTube.

    "Evolutionists tell us that dinosaurs died out 65 million years before man but God told Job that He made dinosaurs when He made man. That would explain why we find stone likenesses of dinosaurs on buildings and on burial stones and why we find dinosaur footprints alongside human footprints."

    And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind . . . And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness,” . . . Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day (Genesis 1:25, 26, 31).
    Genesis 10:9, 8:19
    Dinosaurs and people living together? That is really hard to imagine, isn’t it, Jim? Actually, it is not hard to imagine if we are Christians who believe God’s Word. Look at our Bible verses. God’s Word tells us that dinosaurs (beasts of the earth) and man (Adam and Eve) were actually made on the very same 24-hour day. They were all created on Day 6 of Creation Week. And, it is true that dinosaurs are older than people—but by only a few hours, not millions of years! So, what is the answer to your question? Yes! Dinosaurs lived with people—before the Flood, on Noah’s ark with Noah and his family, and after the Flood. God’s Word also describes what I believe was a dinosaur. In the book of Job, the animal called Behemoth is described, and it sure seems to be a unique, dinosaur-like animal (like a large Sauropod), living right there with Job and the people of that time!..

  • Norwegian beach briefly carpeted with dead herring Associated PressAP – 10 hrs ago (Tuesday, January 3rd 2012)

  • "OSLO, Norway (AP) — Tens of thousands of dead herring have carpeted a stretch of coast in northern Norway — and then disappeared again. The fish appeared on New Year's Eve, leading to speculation that predators might have driven a huge school ashore or the fish could have been washed onto the beach by a powerful storm that hit Norway on Christmas Day. Jens Christian Holst of Norway's Institute of Marine Research says a combination of several factors was the likely explanation. Locals also started pondering how to clean up the estimated 20 tons of dead fish on the beach in Kvaenes, near Tromsoe, north of the Arctic Circle, before it decayed. But before they could start, the fish disappeared. Holst said Tuesday the herrings have likely washed back into the North Sea."

  • Animals in the Bible, from Wikipedia

  • "The Bible names over 120 species of animals but, as it is not a book of science, does not offer any kind of biological classification. The sacred books were composed by a people almost exclusively given to husbandry and pastoral life and hence in constant communication with nature. To this people references to the animal world and animal customs were quite natural. As may be expected, the more a particular animal abounded in the Holy Land, the more frequent allusions to it may be found....
    It must be known, however, if we wish fairly to understand the language of the Scriptures on the matters connected therewith. The first class, the behem�th, or beasts, in the Biblical parlance, includes all quadrupeds living on the earth, with the exception of the amphibia and such small animals as moles, mice, and the like."
    List of Animals in the Bible
    "The following is a list of animals whose name appears in the Bible. Whenever required for the identification, the Hebrew name will be indicated, as well as the specific term used by Zoologists. This list will include even such names as griffon, lamia, siren or unicorn, which, though generally applied to fabulous beings, have nevertheless, on account of some misunderstandings or educational prejudices of the Greek and Latin translators, crept into the versions, and have been applied to real animals. In the following list D.V. stands for Douay Version, A.V. and R.V. for Authorized and Revised Version respectively."

    "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every [sort] shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep [them] alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every [sort] shall come unto thee, to keep [them] alive. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather [it] to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he."-Genesis 6
