EARTHLINGS

1:35:28 - 3 years ago

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby .

Scary disease is turning cats into 'living robots'

Cats in the U.K. have come down with a strange ailment that turns them into "living robots." Twenty-one reported cases of "staggering disease" have been reported in rural Scotland, with the victims' movements becoming progressively more robotic and stiff. Bizarrely, one of the earliest symptoms is seen when the cats become "over-affectionate." There is no cure for the disease, which has also cropped up in Sweden and Austria, and most of the cats with the illness survived just 11 months after symptoms first appeared. Vets are so far stumped by the disorder, but believe that something in the cats' environment might be overstimulating their immune system.

Arizona man arrested after rescuing and adopting drowning raccoon

I don't see any problem with the ad. Sex isn't abuse, unless unwanted; right?

Comment by Adriana on February 15, 2012 at 9:43am

PETA has really gone crazy. Check out this ad. I understand it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, it's supposed to promote veganism by dispelling the myth that only meat-eaters can be "real men" or passionate, vigorous lovers, but this is crazy! Making fun of an abused woman even if in a tongue-in-cheek way, is tasteless. It won't help any animals, it will only make people irate, in my opinion, at least.

WARNING: Contains graphic footage.
The Humane Society of the United States investigated two of the top five pork producers in the US, one of them being a direct supplier of pork to Walmart, to find the ugly truth behind the gestation crate system and the misleading quality standards and animal welfare commitments from the industry.
