Reuniting, rescuing baby squirrels - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles, California, real estate

Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles, California, squirrel rescue, squirrel reunite

We get quite a few of these a week but I'll just share one. A woman found some baby squirrels and with the help of our website reunited them with their mother. Please, share this so others can reunite baby squirrels. It's our second baby squirrel season and everyone is getting full. Every baby reunited is a baby saved.

"I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU for posting the page about reuniting baby squirrels with their mother.  My cat, Russy, brought one of them to me this morning unhurt...he was so gentle.  I took the baby into a dishtowel and stood, mind racing, what should I do now?  I heard an adult squirrel raising cain over by the fence, so I figured that was the mama, knowing her baby had fallen from the nest.  I went to investigate and found another one, my other cat Pee-Wee was touching its tail and making it squeal.  I picked up that baby and put it in the towel with the other and they cuddled up. Neither baby seemed to be hurt, which was just amazing to me.

My first thought was to take them to the vet...then I thought, No, they're so busy out there...Google the problem.  So I did.  and I clicked on your page and did everything you said to do.  I found a box, rigged it with twine so I could tie it to sturdy branches in a dogwood tree next to the big maple nesting tree.  Then, was the task of getting the babies to turn loose of the towel so I could put them on the leaves I'd put in the box for them.  they held on to
the towel, then they held on to my fingers, and I just teared up...little babies, so vulnerable and trusting..

I left them but have been coming back to check on them about every 2 hours today.  At 3:30 I heard the mama squacking, I figured she'd noticed the box, with the still sleeping babies inside.  I came back inside and when I went back to check on them at 5:00, I got close to the tree and Mama ran about half way up the tree and stopped and looked directly at me.  I stopped, too.  She skittered on up the tree and I went on to check the box again...this time it was empty!  She had taken her babies home!  I was ecstatic!  Thank you so much, again...I would have been devastated if this had turned out any other way.

I'm still blown away by the fact that my two cats that found them chose not to make them breakfast.  My old cat, Russy, has a newfound place in my heart for his kindness and intelligence on knowing what to do to save these babies.  Ya gotta love that..."

Thanks so much for reuniting the baby squirrels!

Here is our article on reuniting baby squirrels. Please, share this note.

Kid Ink aka Brian Collins sued for vicious dog attack - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles, CA

Kid Ink aka Brian Collins sued for vicious dog bite - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles, California
UPDATE: The victim Garnick Nazarian had severe injuries and needed multiple surgeries.

Rapper Kid Ink real name Brian Collins was recently sued because his dog viciously attacked Garnick Nazarian (Case BC554797). The owner who rented the house to Kid Ink is also being sued along with Kid Ink's girlfriend and model Asia (sic) Azante (Asiah Azante) aka Asia Sade, owner of the home Patricia Pineda, the Brindlewood Community Home Owners Association and Fidelity Management Services which manages the property.

Kid Ink, Asiah Azante, sued because their dog attacked someone

Plaintiff Garnik Nazarian in his complaint states he went to deliver a pizza to Kid Ink and Azante August 2, 2013 at a home he was renting at 12097 Delante Ave, Granada Hills, CA 91344. Kid Ink's dog "Louis" attacked Garnik while he was on the premises. As per the complaint the "Plaintiff suffered severe physical injuries to his hands, arms, legs, face, and other body parts." Plaintiff needed extensive medical care and hospital treatment. The injury has affected his ability to work. To have caused such severe injures I would bet this is a molosser breed, most likely a pitbull. Information, data, research, cases of dog bite attacks are here http://www.dogsbite.org .

According to the complaint the dog "Louie" had "an unusually dangerous nature including a tendency to attack humans." Plaintiff states Defendants did not restrain Louie or warn him about his dangerous tendency. Not very wise to not restrain your dog when a stranger shows up at the door.

Plaintiff's attorney is Anthony Koushan, State Bar # 165151, 301 N Canon #218, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 (310) 552-9596.

Full complaint is here.

Texas Governor Rick Perry indicted for abuse of power - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

Governor Rick Perry mug shot - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, real estate, Los Angeles, California
I full well know how corrupt Texas is but still this is huge. There goes his presidential bid. It's bad enough to abuse your power but to admit that is what you are doing before you do it is stupid. It's like corrupt Texas attorney, lawyer Randy Turner who told me he's known the judge in my case for many years and he'd sign anything he puts in front of him, and he did. Stupid, cocky, pieces of shit. May they rot in hell.

"AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for allegedly abusing the powers of his office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption — making the possible 2016 presidential hopeful his state's first indicted governor in nearly a century.

A special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he promised publicly to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County Democratic District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. Lehmberg was convicted of drunken driving, but refused Perry's calls to resign.

Perry's general counsel, Marry Anne Wiley, defended the governor's action.

"The veto in question was made in accordance with the veto authority afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution," she said. "We will continue to aggressively defend the governor's lawful and constitutional action, and believe we will ultimately prevail."

The unit Lehmberg oversees is the same that led the investigation against former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Texas Republican who in 2010 was convicted of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for taking part in a scheme to influence elections in his home state.

Several top aides to the Republican governor appeared before grand jurors in Austin, including his deputy chief of staff, legislative director and general counsel. Perry himself did not testify, though.

Perry was indicted on charges of abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony with potential punishments of five to 99 years in prison, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony that carries a punishment of two to 10 years.

No one disputes that Perry is allowed to veto measures approved by the Legislature, including part or all of the state budget. But the left-leaning Texans for Public Justice government watchdog group filed an ethics complaint accusing the governor of coercion because he threatened to use his veto before actually doing so in an attempt to pressure Lehmberg to quit.

"We're pleased that the grand jury determined that the governor's bullying crossed the line into illegal behavior," said Craig McDonald, executive director of Texans for Public Justice. "The complaint had merit, serious laws were potentially broken."

Man kicks ground squirrel off edge into Grand Canyon - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles

Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Los Angeles, California, Real Estate, squirrel kicked Grand Canyon
In the below clip two French speaking tourists lure a ground squirrel to the edge of the Grand Canyon with food. As the squirrel starts to eat the food the evil man kicks him off the ledge into the Grand Canyon. You can see his friend with a camera. Supposedly the man who posted this video on YouTube was not involved and was merely a witness.

We rescue these same squirrels here at Animal Advocates. Our sub-species is the California Ground Squirrel. They are called Rock Squirrels in Texas and Arizona. What this man did was very cruel. Arizona Parks are investigating though I doubt they will ever find the men.
