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.

FOOTHILLS — Authorities are cautioning residents to beware of animals fleeing burned areas of the Angeles National Forest and moving into neighboring communities. With more than a quarter of the forest burned, animals displaced by the Station fire may find their way into nearby streets and homes as they search for food and comfortable surroundings, officials said. “If you see a wild animal, be safe and keep your distance, and keep your pets away from it until it leaves,” Jonathan Fielding, Los Angeles County’s director of public health, said in a statement.

I was shocked and saddened to read of the tragic attack on Chrissi Fernandez's cat last week. Chrissi is a well-known animal activist who was a regular at the City Council meetings, and was a pivotal force in bringing to light the shortcomings of the Glendale Humane Society. I admire her greatly. A few weeks ago, I wrote a letter about my concern over the increased coyote sightings in my neighborhood, especially after one of my cats disappeared. I observed [the coyotes]

Colorado officials say the popular Glendale bear known as “Meatball” - trapped and taken to a temporary rescue facility in San Diego County - will not be permitted residency at a sanctuary in the Rocky Mountain state. “This bear can't come to Colorado,” said Randy Hamilton, spokesman for Colorado Parks & Wildlife, pointing to state regulations that prevent sanctuaries from accepting wild animals. There's been a tug-of-war over the 400-pound bear since he was caught last week in La Cañada Flintridge.

As a longtime resident of Chevy Chase Canyon, home to the coyotes, I implore you to do everything in your power to protect our children of Glendale from the brawn and tenacity of the coyote. I do love animals, but I love children more. As a parent and teacher, I feel strongly that you, our elected officials, be determined not to allow another child of Glendale become injured or killed by a coyote. It can happen, because we all know wild animals are unpredictable.

The fate of the Glendale bear remains in flux as officials from California and Colorado sort out the nuances of a wildlife law in the Rocky Mountain state that has put any move on hold.    The meatball-loving bear who frequented the Glendale and La Crescenta - Montrose areas and saw his popularity explode over the last five months was tranquilized and trapped last week, taken to a sanctuary in Alpine and transferred to a quarantine cage. It was to be his temporary home, but on Wednesday that was where he remained.

It's become a battle of campaigns as two animal sanctuaries vie to be the permanent home of “Meatball,” the Glendale bear that was trapped and taken to a temporary enclosure two weeks ago. One sanctuary in San Diego County launched a major fundraising effort Monday to try to keep the bear, while another in Colorado aims to flood officials with letters and calls from the public to get Meatball to the Rocky Mountain State. Both sanctuaries believe they're the better home. “Meatball's life is hanging in the balance,” said Katie Vandegrift, spokeswoman for The Wild Animal Sanctuary 30 miles outside of Denver.

Following public outcry, L.A. County officials put the brakes on a plan to catch and kill a pack of resident coyotes in north Glendale, with officials saying they will wait to take action until a vacant home is demolished. County officials said the coyotes posed a threat to pets and small children and needed to be euthanized. The pack would not survive if relocated in the wild, officials said. But reaction to the plan was overwhelmingly negative, with county and city officials fielding calls opposing the plans.

Whether it’s caring for wild animals, directing a dance recital or creating computer games, reading is of inescapable importance, guest speakers told students Friday at Glenoaks Elementary School. More than 25 community members visited the school Friday to read books to students and talk about how they use reading in their jobs through an event called “Guess Who’s Coming to Read.” The PTA has organized the program at the school for about 10 years, Principal Bob Modrzejewski said.

A wildlife sanctuary in Colorado that was blocked by state officials there from taking in the Glendale bear known as Meatball filed a lawsuit Tuesday in an effort to overturn a regulation it claims is being invoked at the expense of the beloved 400-pound bruin getting the best possible home. Colorado wildlife officials have said a state regulation prohibits wild animals such as Meatball from being kept at sanctuaries. Their counterparts in California agree, saying there are no plans to transport the bear to the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, which filed the lawsuit in Denver.

Nobody told Cajun the crocodile he would be in a show on Honolulu Avenue Sunday afternoon, but when he made his entrance the crowd went wild. The fifth annual Kids 'n' Kritters Day at the Montrose Shopping Park featured two petting zoos. One with pythons, kinkajous and crocodiles and another with more provincial animals. Kimberly Wright, an animal handler for Wild Wonders Productions, held Cajun on her forearm and passed his tail around for children, young and old, to touch.
