    This afternoon, we received the very welcome and far-reaching news that a federal judge just issued an order requiring that sport hunting and trapping of wolves in the Great Lakes region must end immediately, in response to our legal action. This comes just six weeks after voters in Michigan soundly rejected a trophy hunting season in the state and also rejected the idea of a seven-member group of political appointees making decisions about whether wolves should be hunted, trapped, or hounded. In the short time since federal protections have been removed, trophy hunters and trappers have…

    I like to make a logical case for animal protection, because I believe that our work is an extension of anti-cruelty principles that are so well-established in our society. So much of what is done to animals is wrong, and it defies the norms of a civil society. From dogfighting to factory farming, the people and institutions involved in these practices are so often causing trouble for people and the broader society, along with animals. Our videos help create positive change for animals like Sasha (above) who was rescued from deplorable conditions and has restarted a new life as Zoey.

    The U.S. Congress wrapped up its work on the Farm Bill in early 2014, and in the end we saw two very good outcomes in that package: an upgrade to the federal law against animal fighting to make it a crime to attend or bring a child to an animal fight, and a nixing of the King amendment, which posed an enterprise-level threat to animal protection laws. But House Republican leaders denied us opportunities to get a vote on several items that were appropriate fits for the Farm Bill and that had broad, bipartisan support: the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, to strengthen current federal law…

But most of all, we could debate where the comma belongs in God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Yes, merry gentlemen: Sequoia has found himself another fearful, feral-born kitten to tame. That’s Banana at his foster faddah’s side. For that matter, we could debate whether aforementioned comma belongs in aforementioned carol at all.

  • stop calling rape victims "accusers"

    Madeline Bernstein-spcaLA President
    3 Dec 2014 | 10:50 am
    Courtesy Google ImagesThe media needs to stop calling victims of rape and sexual assault "accusers''. It implies that there is no victim, but rather a shrill, angry, mean accuser who is victimizing the rapist. It is not done with any other crime. If you are robbed, killed, kidnapped or pick pocketed - you are a victim. Why is a rape victim an accuser? Why is the universally accepted legal language changed? In fact, it is the people of a state that accuses the defendant on behalf of the victim.This perversion of language and inversion of sympathy began with the allegation that Kobe Bryant…

Some 250 years ago, Bhagwan Chaudhary, a farmer from Bariyarpur village in Nepal’s southern plains, was arrested for stealing. The authorities were moving him to a jail in Makawanpur, a fort 70km east of his home. En route, Chaudhary prayed to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai.

    According to a new documentary, Puppycide, there is a police shooting of a dog approximately once every 98 minutes. The vast majority of these shootings are due to a lack of training and experience in dealing with animals, especially dogs. Police officers who have not been afforded the opportunity to learn how to react around dogs tend to be more easily frightened of a possible attack and will see aggressive behavior where there is only curiosity or benign intent on the part of the dog.

There was no shortage of animal issues at stake in the giant package, which resulted from tense negotiations with many policy concerns in play.

Killer buyers export tens of thousands of horses from the United States to Mexico each year, often outbidding horse owners and rescue groups, just so the animals can be inhumanely butchered, shrink-wrapped, and air-freighted to diners in Belgium, France, Italy, and other EU nations.
