Fourth of July: Waking Nightmare for Princess Fluffilyaya
While humans love loud, bright, exploding Fourth of July fireworks, our furry friends hate pyrotechnics. For dogs, cats, horses and other animals, this is one of the most stressful and dangerous times of the year—especially this time around, because the holiday weekend stretches over several days. The noise can drive pets to run away, especially if left outside and unattended.
“We have a higher volume of stray animal calls and a higher volume of barking complaint calls on July Fourth than on almost any other night of the year,” says Capt. Albert Marquez of Animal Welfare’s Field Services Division.
Since the noise of fireworks can stress cats and dogs into running away, the city animal welfare folks strongly suggest you keep your pets inside as much as possible at night and to some extent busy. Give them something to chew on or play ball with them. If your pet gets especially stressed, they recommends you ask your veterinarian for some sort of medical help to calm your pet down.
With the holiday weekend stretching into the beginning of the week for many people, kennel workers are expecting an unusually high amount of stray pets into the Eastside and Westside shelters on the mornings of July 3, 4 and 5. Should your pet get lost and end up at either shelter, Animal Welfare wants to expedite the process. If your pet already has a microchip, a license and is spayed or neutered, he or she will be returned to you free of charge. Owners will not be charged a reclaim fee. All they have to do is pick up their lost pets at the shelter.
If your pet turns up missing during the weekend, please check Albuquerque’s Eastside or Westside shelters immediately. Or you can get help by dialing 311.
Remember the Riders
Foundation fights to keep ghost bikes standing
Three months after cyclist David Anderson was killed near Paseo del Norte and Rio Grande Boulevard, the black auto paint smeared on a nearby brick wall is beginning to peel off. Fresh silver fencing replaced about 20 feet of rusty fence destroyed by a car careening off the road. It, too, is beginning to weather. And the flowers placed in front of Anderson’s roadside memorial have long since wilted.
Grassroots protest exhibits the vulnerability of the human body
State law is pretty specific about what constitutes indecent exposure—the primary genital area, or "mons pubis, penis, testicles, mons veneris, vulva or vagina." What's not on that list? Butts and female nipples.
