A mini menagerie of exotic animals visited Cerritos Elementary Tuesday drawing gasps of wonder from the students. A boa constrictor, an injured turkey vulture, an endangered slow loris and an African pixie frog were some of the wildlife featured in a presentation, called "The Unhuggables," that Wildlife on Wheels, a nonprofit animal health and welfare organization, put on. "Today we're going to see some exciting animals because they're unhuggable...

I am writing to alert the Glendale community about the cruel treatment of animals by the Ramos Circus. The animals are confined to very small enclosures where they must stand or sit tied all day and night. Many people have written to Glendale officials asking that they revoke the permit. The City Council and city officials have not revoked the permit nor even taken a stand. The schools should not accept free tickets from the Ramos Circus, as this demonstrates they support the circus.

The sounds of morning traffic that usually surround Holy Redeemer Catholic School yielded to the sounds of barking, meowing and yes, quacking on Thursday morning. The annual Blessing of the Animals was in full swing on the school’s campus as students brought in their favorite pets to be blessed as part of the traditional ceremony. “It is a great delight for the kids and families,” said Monsignor Jack Foley, better known as Father Jack. “Some [kids] brought pictures of their pets because their parents couldn’t get off work [to bring the pet in]

The brouhaha over a pack of coyotes and their impending demise this week after North Glendale residents complained of their presence to L.A. County officials brought an important lesson to the fore. In a city with several urban areas wedged up against wildland, there's bound to be turf wars between humans and wildlife. As the hubbub unfolded, what started as a plan to remove - by trapping and euthanasia - a pack of coyotes that have taken up residence at a vacant, fire-gutted home on Brockmont Drive turned into a public uproar among those believe that the response to wildlife in urban areas shouldn't be death.

"Menagerie: The Art of Animals" is an exhibition true to its name. The Forest Lawn Museum along with guest co-curator and artist William Stout have assembled a collection of art that depicts animal subjects, including bronze and paper sculpture, animation art and paleoart, produced by more than two dozen artists spanning more than two centuries. Paintings by Los Angeles Zoo resident Rosie the Orangutan and insect wrangler Steven R. Kutcher are a fun contribution to the exhibition, adding a new dimension to the term Animal Art with their depictions and observations.

This month the News- Press published a story about the Ramos Bros. Circus and how it would not include animals like camels and other animals. One of the camels from last years' show escaped from the circus causing commotion on a Glendale street. This incident prompted city officials to ask that circus owners avoid bringing animals this year. I'm a GCC student and have always been an animal lover. Animals should not perform in the circus at all. A lot of circuses put animals through stress, torture, and abuse.

The writer to the Glendale News-Press regarding the city's elephant-themed Rose Parade float (“Step up and help out or don't complain,” Jan. 6) just doesn't get it. Were the animals displayed in chains? Roped up or down in any way? I didn't see another parading float with any animal being abused. Maybe all the Disney characters and the other cartoons are abused by this reader's standards. Well, she should watch carefully next time. Joe Zuazua Glendale

Claudia Peschiutta NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- This is one feline that could be welcomed into any home. Noel doesn't require food, water or a place to sleep. The only thing this cat could use is a frame. The Glendale Humane Society is hoping to find hundreds of people who are willing to take Noel home. The black cat is the subject of a colored-pencil drawing titled "The Missing Piece of the Puzzle," which a group of community members has turned into a limited-edition poster for sale by the Humane Society.

Janine Marnien Volunteers at Bundles of Hope have about 300 stuffed animals they've collected for children displaced by wildfires in western states earlier this summer. The problem is, they can't seem to get rid of them. The group, made up of Taylor Witte, 12, Carri Witte, 10, and Remy deBrauwere, 11, had initially hoped to give the animals to the American Red Cross for distribution. About 100 animals were shipped to displaced children in Texas, but the lack of response to the group's continued efforts was frustrating, said Dawn Witte, Carri's mother.

Claudia Peschiutta LOS ANGELES -- The doctor is in -- but not for much longer. Charles J. Sedgwick, known to most as "Doc," is retiring from his position as chief veterinarian of the Los Angeles Zoo later this month. The 68-year-old Burbank resident has held the post since 1995, but his history with the zoo began in 1964, when he came on for a five-year stint as a veterinarian at the facility's former home in Griffith Park. Sedgwick will retire on Sept.

Familiar sightings in La Crescenta such as roving robots and dogs in festive outfits were joined by uncommon visitors such as the world's largest breed of porcupine on Saturday at the ninth annual Hometown Country Fair. The event brought together many kinds of foods, live acts, carnival rides and critters at Crescenta Valley Park, but many visitors were just happy to see their neighbors on a weekend outing. Resident Leanna Levine came to see her daughters - a gymnast and a cheerleader - perform.

Nominated for this year's Animation Oscar, the excellent “Ernest & Celestine” was, sad to say, not the winner. It was a tough field - hey, there was a Miyazaki film in there too - and I have no unkind words for “Frozen,” the winner, either. We've all heard the frankly hollow line about there not being any losers. But, in this particular case, there is some justification. On the eve of the expansion of its U.S. release, the lovely French/Belgian co-production will benefit from its brief mention in last week's world-televised awards show - one of the dullest ever, by the way. In outline, the setup is not wholly unlike many of the animated features coming out of Hollywood: lovable anthropomorphized animals play out humanoid conflicts and realize that we all have to learn to live together.

A year ago, DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg trekked to the Bay Area headquarters of YouTube to pitch an idea to his counterpart, Salar Kamangar. "I said to them, I love the things they are doing with YouTube in terms of building out the platform and encouraging user generated content," Katzenberg said. "But as a user, I felt the one thing that was very challenging is ... there's hundreds of hours of programming being uploaded every minute. It's inconsumable and unnavigable and, as a user, it was getting harder and harder for me to know what I should be watching.

Lilit Mkrtchian's favorite part of watching the Tournament of Roses Parade every year is spotting the Glendale float and pointing out the parts she helped decorate. Come this New Year's Day, she will be able to boast about the uva grass, a cream-colored tropical plant, and other materials she glued on the star of this year's float: Meatball the bear. PHOTOS: Glendale Rose Parade float volunteers in full swing The 35-foot-long craft's design, which features animals living in Glendale's hillsides, was inspired by Meatball, the famous black bear that was caught in foothill neighborhoods three times last year before being captured by state wildlife officials and transported to an animal sanctuary in San Diego County.

“Fuddles” the cat is back again in Frans Vischer's latest book, “A Very Fuddles Christmas.” The Glendale resident and Disney animator published his second book in October, telling of the misadventures of Fuddles on Christmas Day. In the book, Fuddles wakes up as his family is preparing a holiday meal. But when Fuddles attempts to devour the family's turkey, he's shooed away. Soon after, he attacks the Christmas presents in the living room, and while he's left unattended, begins to eat the family's gingerbread house.

The shell of Glendale's 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade float, featuring an animatronic version of the famed Glendale bear Meatball , has been constructed and painted. All that's left on the checklist to complete the $150,000 float is the addition of dry decorating materials, which will be added on at the beginning of December, and the placement of fresh flowers, which is set to begin a few days before the Pasadena parade on Jan. 1. “It became very whimsical,” said Brian Dancel, spokesman for Phoenix Decorating Company, which decorated the 35-foot-long float.
