A beloved black bear that won hearts after he was spotted walking around New Jersey on two legs, earning him the name Pedals, is believed to have been killed by a bow hunter.

A Facebook page created for the famous bear, which walked on his hind legs because of injuries to his front paws, announced Pedals’ death Friday. It cited witnesses at a designated black bear check station that allegedly saw the bear’s body and also heard the hunter bragging about taking down the popular animal.

“The hunter who has wanted him dead for nearly 3 years had the satisfaction of putting an arrow through him, bragging at the station,” read the Facebook post, which sparked anger and sadness among some of the page’s 22,000 fans.

In a statement, the state’s Division of Fish and Wildlife confirmed that a black…

We honestly knew little, perhaps nothing, about these creatures until very recently when they were in the news; and they were almost gone before we learned about them. Suddenly, thankfully, pangolins have been given the attention they deserve from the folks (including all of us) who may be able to help them survive as a species:

Pesticide Industry Secret Study Shows Neonics Kills Bees

Nwo Report

bees

Tests conducted by agrochemical giants Syngenta and Bayer showed that their own pesticides caused severe harm to bees.

Yet they kept their findings secret and did not make them public.

Documents obtained by Greenpeace reveal that the agrochemical industry has a disregard for the environmental and food security concerns, and that regulators are no help.

According to a UN study more than 40 percent of invertebrate species like bees and butterflies face extinction threats at the local level.

“If Bayer and Syngenta cared about the future of our pollinators, they would have made the findings public…It’s time for these companies to come clean”

Common Dreams reports:

Agrochemical giants Syngenta and Bayer discovered in their own tests that their pesticides caused severe harm to bees, according to unpublished documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the environmental group Greenpeace.

The companies conducted the trials on products that…

Study Says Earth’s Wilderness Will Be Gone By 2100

Nwo Report

wilderness

The Earth’s wilderness areas will be completely eliminated by the year 2100, according to a disturbing new study.

Despite the importance of wilderness ecosystems on biodiversity, climate, food, shelter, medicine and other vital ecological and evolutionary processes, they are being destroyed at a dangerously rapid rate.

It takes 1,000 years to repopulate a newly planted forest with tree species and it took earth one million years to create a rainforest.

Scientists say that by the end of this century all life on the planet will be at risk of extinction as all wilderness land will be occupied by humans and their corporations.

According to a report by Underground Reporter:

A wilderness twice the size of Alaska has been demolished by modern day practices in less than two decades. That’s 3.3 million kilometers, or a tenth of the world’s entire uncultivated land — simply gone.

A new study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that by the…
