    A confirmed wolf kill was discovered near Walden, Colo., the home of one of Colorado’s wolf packs. An approximately 500 pound purebred replacement heifer was found dead after being attacked and eaten by this pack of wolves. This is the first confirmed wolf kill of livestock in Colorado in over 70 years. In early 2021, Colorado Parks and Wildlife confirmed the existence of this pack in north central Colorado; however, individual wolves have been sited in the area previous to the pack confirmation. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials are working closely with the livestock producer to learn as much from...

  • The Left's Coercion Campaign Against the Unvaccinated Is About To Look Even More Foolish

    We’ve heard it’s the Republicans who are at fault for the return of the mask mandates and the spreading of the Delta variant. Well, liberals are saying that of course. It’s conservative media that’s fanning the flames. There’s more nuance to this problem and you all know. The least of it is not being that vaccinations have always been a sensitive topic in America. When it comes to kids, it’s even more intense. There’s also the aspect that a lot of people don’t like being told what to do and there is a limit in telling what adults can and...

    Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning, testified in federal court in 1993 that she sent a threatening letter to the Forest Service warning that a local forest had been sabotaged with tree spikes. Stone-Manning told a local news outlet in 1993 that she could have faced conspiracy charges had she not struck an immunity deal with a federal prosecutor in return for her testimony. Court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show that Stone-Manning testified that her friend and former roommate John Blount, who was found guilty and sentenced to 17 months...
  • Biden nominates radical leftist to lead Bureau of Land Management

    President Biden has nominated Montana environmental activist and Democrat operative Tracy Stone-Manning of Montana to head the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management. Stone-Manning got her start in environmental activism as the spokesperson for the mother of all radical organizations — Earth First. Only after entering politics did Stone-Manning claim she left the job because the monkey wrenchers were just too darn angry. Who knew that ecoterrorism and arson had a dark side? PeakNation™ will recall the monkey wrenching of Aspen’s natural gas pumping station over the Christmas holiday that left the resort in the cold for days. The culprit...

    A federal judge on Friday ordered the pretrial release of a former Seattle man accused of eco-terrorism as soon as he tests negative for COVID-19. In 2006, a federal grand jury in Oregon indicted Dibee and 11 conspirators as part of 'Operation BACKFIRE,' a long-running FBI domestic terrorism investigation, and the largest ecoterrorism investigation in U.S. history. The conspirators with the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front, known as "The Family," have been linked to more than 40 criminal acts ranging from vandalism to arson between 1995 and 2001, causing more than $45 million in damages. The group was...

The shooting happened at a pro-President Donald Trump rally that was disrupted by people with Black Lives Matter and Antifa, who had planned...

    An affidavit we obtained describes the day a man on the Northeast side shot and killed a cat on an apartment balcony. A witness provided a statement of the event, accusing Donald Martin, 77, of animal cruelty. The statement says the witness saw the cat eating out of a bowl on the morning of Nov. 12 before hearing a loud noise. After the witness looked up, she saw Martin holding something in his hand as the cat seized up. Animal Care Services investigators said he shot at a group of cats, which residents at the complex typically help caring for......

    BY THE OREGONIAN/OREGONLIVE (Compiled from news accounts, court records, public notices) Last week's arrest of a long-sought accused eco-saboteur pushed the spotlight back on a tight-knit cell of radical environmentalists responsible for a $48 million run of firebombings and other crimes across the West in the 1990s and early 2000s. Six men and five women prosecuted in Oregon received sentences ranging from three years to 13 years. They were arrested starting in 2005 in what the FBI called "Operation Backfire," a task force that tracked down the suspects with the help of an informant deep within the underground group....

    At last, a federal court has taken a move to limit the slaughter of our national symbol, otherwise protected by law, in the headlong rush to produce expensive, unreliable wind power, based on the unproven theory that carbon dioxide emissions lead to global warming, or climate change, or something really, really bad, sometime in the future, even if not right now.

    One of the activists stepped in front of the coffin for her 15 minutes of fame: “I’m sorry for the trauma, pain, and utter isolation you had to endure. I’m sorry you were viewed as a mere commodity. You’re not. You’re a unique individual…” Hold it! Rewind tape! Did she just say they were unique individuals? Yup! She did.

    Rod Coronado, a convicted eco-terrorist, is the leader of the controversial “Yellowstone Wolf Patrol,” a new environmental group that plans to shadow legal Montana wolf hunters during the state’s fall and winter wolf season and document the hunts with a video camera. Coronado, a resident of Michigan, is a radical environmentalist who “sank whaling ships nearly 30 years ago in Iceland and later went to prison after torching a Michigan State University lab in 1992 for conducting research for the fur industry” according to The Buffalo News of Buffalo, NY. He also serves as a spokesman for the radical, militant...

    To raise awareness for the rights of animals to enjoy "total liberation," especially from medical research, a group of international protesters with the group Direct Action Everywhere, staged a "die in" at UC Berkeley. On top of the medical testing that takes place at the left-wing university, the activists also claim the Berkeley labs engage in animal cruelty.

    Bill Clinton stays pretty busy these days, raking in a half-million or more for an hour spent speaking to rapt audiences. He’s got to charge that much because the Clintons are always on the verge of being broke. Yesterday, I got to hear him speak, along with about 3,500 others who paid $50* for a small chicken breast on lettuce, coffee and cheesecake, followed by Slick Willie’s tossed-fact-salad. Bill looked good, for a 67-going-on-68 year old. He’s lost some weight, apparently by giving it to Al Gore. “The best part of being an ex-president is I can say anything I...

    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are certain about one thing, even though they do not acknowledge that Bigfoot is real: It is just as unethical to kill a Sasquatch as it would be any other animal. In a report posted by the CBS Houston on Jan. 30, the animal rights activists reacted to the idea much as expected, because to members of their organization, shooting and killing a living creature, whether it be for food or sport, is an atrocity. PETA spokesperson Lindsay Rajt told The Houston Chronicle: “As an organization we do oppose hunting of...

    Delta and Wieden & Kennedy, New York, go totally '80s in the latest of its creative in-flight safety videos. This new film, which just launched online today, is rife with references from that decade of net shirts, neon and big hair. As the flight attendant goes through the seatbelt and oxygen mask motions, we meet passengers pulled straight out of the era -- peppered with fun references like a Rubik's cube, cassette tapes, Teddy Ruxpin and a Devo hat. There are even cameos of lovable '80s alien Alf, and in the final cockpit scene -- that famous copilot from the...

    An environmental activist who pled guilty this month to poaching elk during a November hunting trip will resign his position as the Idaho director of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. Marv Hoyt, a leading critic of mining activities on the health of sheep and cattle, killed three elk and left the carcasses of two behind to rot in the field. Hoyt had only one tag for one elk, and initially denied to fish and game officers he had killed the other two cows and tried to hide the carcasses with tree branches. Although the protection of elk is a central goal...

    Yellowstone's grizzlies, now classified as a threatened species, were briefly removed from protected status by the federal government in 2007, when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared that the outsized, hump-shouldered bears had made a healthy comeback. At the time, the number of grizzlies in the region had exceeded the government's recovery goal of 500 bears, the government said. But conservationists successfully challenged the de-listing in court, arguing that the government discounted climate changes ... On Wednesday, members of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee sought to reverse that decision, recommending a new de-listing after reviewing a report suggesting Yellowstone's...
