J’ai documenté le sauvetage de 200 chiens d’une usine à chiots

Vendredi passé, j’étais en assignation pour l’agence Associated Press et la Humane Society International. Je savais que je devais documenter la saisie d’une usine à chiots, mais comme il s’agissait d’une opération à grande échelle surprise pour les propriétaires, je n’avais pas plus de détail.

Je devais me rendre à un hôtel de Magog. Sur place, deux semi-remorques et un camion cube, la SPA, le MAPAQ, et la Humane Society International. Nous avons eu l’appel, et nous sommes parties en convois pour effectuer la deuxième plus importante saisie de chien dans la province de Québec. Arrivé sur les lieux, la Sureté du Québec était déjà là et avait notifié les propriétaires. La saisie pouvait commencer.

Photos of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

I visited recently Cades Cove and Elkmont Historic district of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. I was a press trip and could not photographe during the best hours of the day, but I managed to get some interesting photos.

Elkmont Historic district

Part of the “Appalachian Club,” near the former logging town of Elkmont, the Elkmont Historic District is not well known, even by the locals.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain.

Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a broad valley surrounded by mountains. As you drive the 11-mile loop, you can stop and explore various historical buildings: churches, a working grist mill, barns and old cabins inhabited by the settlers before the creation of the park.
