How Does a Lynx Cross a Fence?

Rare images of lynx family in Banff National ParkFebruary 2013.

Alex Taylor, a human-wildlife conflict specialist who works for Parks Canada, was sent to intervene to help keep a lynx and her kitten off the highway near Canada’s Lake Louise in Banff National Park.

While on the scene, Alex snapped an incredibly rare sequence of images of the animals as they crossed highway fencing.

“As the pictures clearly portray, lynx are incredibly agile and flexible animals - this sequence is nothing short of stunning,” said Omar McDadi, a Parks Canada Communications Officer.

“We believe this is the first time lynx have been captured on film crossing highway fencing in this fashion.

“Lynx sightings in Banff National Park are rare, though last March a lynx was snapped using one of the park’s wildlife overpasses…

Well, I am an Oscar nominee. But more to the point, my film, 5 Broken Cameras — which chronicles my village Bil’in’s nonviolent struggle to resist Israeli occupation — is about precisely the kind of humiliation my family and I experienced at Los Angeles International Airport. The only difference is that the victims where I come from number in the millions, and our stories have become so routine that what happened to my family and me yesterday pales by comparison.


That’s because, on any given day, there are more than 500 Israeli checkpoints, roadblocks, and other obstacles to movement throughout the West Bank — an area less than 2 percent the size of California on which some 2.5 million Palestinians live under a ubiquitous system of repression.

Not one single hurtful thing ever got changed by someone grinning and bearing it.

Hurtful things changed because people have said ‘That hurts me. Stop.’

And every time you try to silence someone and tell them that they shouldn’t be hurt, shouldn’t be offended, shouldn’t choose this battle, that this isn’t important and that other things are more important - you are serving the hurtful rather than the hurt.

(via moniquill)

When you tell me that I shouldn’t be offended, you become my enemy. You are saying it’s okay to hurt me. And thus you need to be eradicated from my life.

(via sourcedumal)

We’re trying to say :”Grin and bear it because it ain’t gonna stop.”

My HR manager frequently says things to me that are hurtful and nasty and rather spiteful.  And I have to grin and bear it.  Everyone who works there has had to grin and bear it.  Because she is in a position where she can do such things, without fear of retribution or gainsay of Any Kind.

You can’t change other people, you can change how you carry yourself.  

(via motodrachen)

That’s incredibly sad, that you feel that you have no recourse other than ‘Grin and bear it’.

But that’s exactly what I’m saying here.

If you grin and bear it, you’re right in thinking that you can’t change it. Because it will not change as long as you grin and bear it.
