Winston, Motherboard's resident corgi. With more than After a full day spent mining for "dank memes" among people allied with the forces of National Socialism, who wouldn't want to detox by looking at photos of a corgi standing in a Home Depot shopping cart or an Australian shepherd welcoming the first warm day of spring? But bubbling just beneath the surface of the 12th largest subreddit in terms of subscribers is an ongoing controversy over the provenance of some of these photos and whether or not members of the popular subreddit should be obligated to disclose where they find them. It quickly emerged, however, that this photo was actually taken by a user of a popular Facebook group devoted to Dogspotting, a semi-satirical sport that's exactly what it sounds like. He then suggested that the real problem is that Reddit as a platform makes it difficult to cite sources since direct links to rival social media platforms like Facebook are banned. Reddit does not permit harassment as a matter of policy. And while all of that may be true—it probably should be easier to share a photo to Reddit alongside a citation of where it originally came from—the originator of Dogspotting sees this incident as indicative of an internet-wide cavalier attitude toward authorship and as an affront to the true spirit of Dogspotting.

WARREN RAWW’s tracks
No posts about cats just adopted off the street; no bird-with-an-injured-beak stories. Cheerful descriptions of animals, however, are very much on point. He has a beard. And he is human sized. We get fun looks in traffic. My job is to make and enforce rules for all of them. The volunteers put out a call for people to join their ranks, and I applied, writing that I wanted to bulk up on meaningful hobbies before I joined the world of full-time work.
RAWW is a non-governmental organization NGO based in Mumbai working towards human-wildlife conflict mitigation and promoting urban wildlife conservation. RAWW was started in with help of young student volunteers whom we call the real change makers. The founder of the organization, Pawan Sharma, initiated the leadership by forming a small yet effective group of changemakers. We work for active reduction of human-wildlife conflicts, by conducting scientific, skilled and ethical rescues of urban wildlife by following all legal protocols. The injured wildlife rescued by our team is medically examined, treated, and observed by a team of member veterinarians and animal hospitals before their release. Injured wildlife that requires time, space and medical attention to recuperate before its release is kept under the vigil of our experienced fosterers. We conduct awareness and outreach sessions regarding urban wildlife conservation and human-wildlife conflict mitigation in schools, colleges, and corporate offices.
