i really hate seeing children at gay rallies. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to gay rallies by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in gay marriage. 

i really hate seeing children in churches. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to churches by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in a magic man in the sky who will send them to hell if they touch themselves or eat shrimp.

Minot PD claims that the bite marks pierced the gloves the officer was wearing, but as someone who has handled a fox with mere welder’s gloves, I fail to see how he bit through the gloves. Not only that, but the officer was way out of line. There was no proof to the bite other than a picture submitted which could have been easily ripped off google, yet the police department acted on it without question. As far as the zoning violations, Tara was told by the mayor of Minot that it would be fine to own Vader so long as she kept him on the property, which she complied with. Tara stood up for the welfare of animals on the blogging site tumblr, but received overzealous, anonymous hatred for it that resulted in her personal pet being destroyed. Vader was a ranch fox, classified as a category 1 non-traditional livestock by North Dakota and are considered “generally domestic” - the same as common pets as ferrets and chinchillas, yet you do not see law enforcement or the Minot PD forcing their way into the homes of people who have chinchillas every time it bites (which chinchillas have been documented to contract rabies and are seldom vaccinated).

Tara purchased Vader from a USDA licensed breeder who provides an interstate certificate of health required to cross state lines in the United States.

Even if there had been zoning violations in place, Minot PD had no right to force themselves into a home based on an anonymously sent picture without any amount of fact-checking done. Vader was a wonderful example of a ranched fox, who wagged his tail and greeted the officer at the door who grabbed him by the neck despite being instructed, repeatedly, by those caring for him, not to. During the short time Vader was in custody of Animal Control, he was reported to wag his tail at the staff.

Vader’s death was the result of gross misuse of authority to violate the privacy and autonomy of a couple who privately owned a well-behaved animal that seldom left the property. Vader was an innocent animal who posed absolutely no risk to anyone, yet was killed, and law enforcement simply shrugs their shoulders and minimizes their errors in this matter as being excusable because of an anonymous picture that was never followed up on and a zoning violation.

Fucking spread this. Now.

For those of you who do not know what is going on, last night (February 20th) Vader was taken from our home after someone called the Police Department and stated he had bitten them. I know this to be false, as we never take him from our property and he never comes in contact with strangers.  There’s a full explanation HERE. Right now, we need all the help we can get. Currently, Vader’s fate rests with the Board of Animal Health, the Department of Health, and the Police Department.  We are asking those of you who have the time and means to help us if you can.  Listed below is the contact information for each of these agencies. We ask that those of you who can help please send emails stating facts about foxes and about Vader. Most of you know just as much about him as those who have met him. Show them that the exotics community will not stand for false persecution (but please do stay formal and respectful!) We thank you in advance, and we love you all..

Marina Abramovic meets Ulay

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

Miya Ando - Obon

Miya traveled to Puerto Rico where she floated 1000 resin and (non-toxic) phosphorescence-coated leaves in a small pond. During the day the phosphorescence collected and absorbed energy from sunlight, giving them a soft, blue glow at night.

Webb deVlam has created packaging for gin brand Bombay Sapphire that illuminates when it is picked up. The packaging features an illustration by Yehrin Tong that has been produced in electroluminescent ink.
The electric current is conducted from a battery at the bottom of the pack and a hidden mechanical switch is triggered when the packaging is picked up from the shelf, causing it to light up.
