Arizona man arrested after rescuing and adopting drowning raccoon

Comment by Neal on February 16, 2012 at 7:57am

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.

"I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't. The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further. "
-- Mark Twain

"Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are like us.' Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are not like us.' Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. "
-- Charles R. Magel

From 2005, but worth reading.

The secret life of moody cows

ONCE they were a byword for mindless docility. But cows have a secret mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture friendships and become excited over intellectual challenges, scientists have found.

Cows are also capable of feeling strong emotions such as pain, fear and even anxiety — they worry about the future. But if farmers provide the right conditions, they can also feel great happiness.

The findings have emerged from studies of farm animals that have found similar traits in pigs, goats, chickens and other livestock. They suggest that such animals may be so emotionally similar to humans that welfare laws need to be rethought. [continue]
