MCALLEN, Texas — Texas Border Sheriff’s Deputy Amy Reyes is facing federal drug smuggling charges following her recent arrest at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint just north of Laredo, Texas where agents claim they found drugs in her vehicle. Reyes’ arrest marks the most recent stain to the image of Texas border law enforcement which has been trying to clean up its image following a long history of corruption. According to court records obtained by Breitbart Texas, Amy Reyes was a deputy with the Starr County Sheriff’s Office when she was riding in a personal vehicle driven by her brother Bobby Reyes and they came up to the U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint in Hebbronville. A police dog tipped off the agents toward a suspicious area under the seat in Reyes’ car and during a secondary inspection they found two secret compartments. Out of the compartments federal agents seized 24 marijuana bundles weighing more than 75 pounds. During questioning by agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement … [Read more...] about Drug Arrest Of Texas Border Sheriff’s Deputy Highlights Region’s Corruption

Britain's lockdown dogs are still only puppies - but they are already being abandoned as owners find they can't afford them or don't have time for them, animal shelters say. One charity founder says she is seeing a huge boost in puppies being surrendered, as owners give up the pets they bought during the lockdown dog boom. Becky Mosley took in a dog at her North Lincolnshire rehoming charity who became poorly with a deadly infection after its owner attempted to force her to breed with her brother. The Bliss Cavalier Rescue volunteer said prices for King Charles Spaniel pups rocketed from £900 to around £3,000 in lockdown, creating a tempting market for "unscrupulous" breeders. Got a story? Email [email protected] “Sadly there’s money to be made for breeding puppies for unscrupulous breeders who don’t breed for temperament or health,” Becky warned. She said restrictions easing in England had coincided with a rush of enquiries from people wanting to surrender … [Read more...] about Lockdown puppies already being abandoned by owners who ‘don’t have time for them’
GOP Representative Kat Cammack penned a concerned letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, accusing him of encouraging and advertising human smuggling on his social media platform amid the border crisis the US has been facing recently. "Instead of censoring conservatives, how about we take on the cartels? In my letter to Facebook, I attached screenshots of ads I personally found w/a simple search for passage to the United States. Their role in the crisis at the border is urgent & must be addressed immediately", Cammack tweeted Wednesday. In a letter obtained by Fox News, Cammack calls on Facebook to take measures against human smuggling advertisements, while pointing at what she described as "silencing" and "shadow-banning" conservative voices. "I take issue when Facebook and other social media platforms actively silence conservatives and "shadow-ban" individuals with views that are not supported by employees of your company", the letter states. "However, Facebook's role in … [Read more...] about GOP Representative Accuses Facebook of Promoting Human Smuggling Amid Border Crisis
Source: Julissa Helmuth, Pexels free download. I recently read two very interesting studies on dog behavior, the results of which surprised me mainly because of misleading sweeping generalizations that have appeared from time to time in scientific and popular literature. The first, by Ian Dinwoodie, Vivian Zottola, and Nicholas Dodman, is called " An Investigation into the Impact of Pre-Adolescent Training on Canine Behavior " and the second, by Péter Pongrácz and his colleagues, is titled " Grumpy Dogs Are Smart Learners—The Association between Dog–Owner Relationship and Dogs’ Performance in a Social Learning Task ". Both are open access essays and available online. Here, I'll focus more on the first paper because of some of its very surprising results. Data collected in the second project led to the conclusion that "dog–human relationship (sic) may have a complex association with various aspects of social interactions between the two species, including problem behaviours … [Read more...] about Does Early Puppy Training Lead to Fewer Behavior Problems?
