    Today’s editorial pages at the nation’s biggest newspapers are a tale of two starkly different worldviews. One, The New York Times, slams the hideous government-financed cruelties documented at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Nebraska. The other, The Wall Street Journal, slams California voters and legislators for enacting modest animal welfare standards through Prop 2 and a closely related law restricting sales of eggs from hens in extreme confinement, and calls for the latter measure to be overturned. The Wall Street Journal stays silent on terrible animal abuses like the…

    There are things we probably should have realized sooner than we did. I should have realized, when my high school boyfriend chose Tubthumping by Chumbawamba as “our song,” that this relationship would ultimately fall down and not get up again. You should have realized, when your blind date introduced himself as Joey “Spicy Meat-a-Ball” Spinelli, that he wouldn’t share your love of microbiotic vegan cuisine. But sometimes, it takes superior intelligence to see what’s in front of us. Sometimes, it takes a cat. Behold the Felix catus in his natural habitat,…

    The City of Los Angeles is thinking of raising its cat limit law from 3 to 20+ cats per household. The proposal suggests that if a person owns 1 to 3 cats, the cats may be indoor or outdoor, but outdoor only if altered. Additional cats, or the cats in a registered private “clowder”, must be kept indoors with no requirement for sterilization. It is possible for even more cats to be kept, if those cats are foster cats rather than owned. What could possibly go wrong here?The proposal in its current form is poorly constructed. It allows owned cats to roam at their peril or potentially end up…

    Yesterday, it was my great privilege to attend the National Sheriffs’ Association conference in Washington, D.C. and to present an HSUS Humane Law Enforcement Award to Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in front of sheriffs throughout the nation. It was Director Comey who in 2014 gave final approval to the government’s new policy of including animal cruelty offenses in the Uniform Crime Report, and for that critically important action, he gets our annual award for leadership among law enforcement officials.

    Today, The HSUS released results of its investigations into two shoddy roadside zoos – the Natural Bridge Zoo in Natural Bridge, Virginia, and Tiger Safari in Tuttle, Oklahoma, both of which breed tigers for two-bit photo shoots with paying customers. The cruelty, neglect, and suffering that characterizes such operations is not well known, but thanks to our undercover investigators, we got a detailed behind-the-scenes look at two of the worst such menageries in the nation. They are not accredited by the reputable Association of Zoos and Aquariums and they are operated by unscrupulous owners…

    The front page of yesterday’s New York Times revealed a house of horrors at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, situated on the plains of western Nebraska. In a superb but deeply disturbing piece of investigative, long-form journalism, Times reporter Michael Moss told the story of scientists performing ghoulish experiments on farm animals, trying to get cows to produce twins or triplets, and pushing sows to produce even more young, with all too apparent disregard for the animals’ welfare. The scientists there have been trying to make the animals grow even faster, so that factory farmers…

Today’s front page news story in the New York Times concerning a house of horrors at a USDA research laboratory is a grim reminder of the degree to which our government is itself responsible for cruelty and disregard when it comes to animals. Tonight, as the President addresses Congress and the American people with his annual State of the Union address, our government’s work with animals and its…

    Cats are unconcerned with metrics. Development directors and other dorklike individuals go googly over stats like “length of stay” and “kitten-to-adult adoption ratio.” Cats and other awesomelike individuals are not so concerned. “Oh my stars, I can’t stop getting more splendid!” This means our cat-pointed pity is generally misdirected. Far be it from me to prod an innocent adopter. But, I have heard at least one staff member — call her Tangela — saying things like, “You know, Captain Smoochipants has been here five years.

Was it true that she’d been romanced by fellow Tabby’s Place cat Mr. Grey? Those green eyes would never divulge.

Abounding in the qualities of zesty zippy lively life: “Give me another espresso, and I’ll be as lifey as a ball pit of toddlers.” Eyeballs may droop. But the light of life, never. Wherefore, it’s more than appropriate that this particular kitten has this particular name. Casually peep in Zoey‘s recovery crate, and “lifey” may not be the first adjective that springs to mind.

    As we again come upon the busiest fund-raising season of the year I, urge you to know your charities and to donate locally. It is not a coincidence that amid a frenzy of holiday solicitations, predators claiming to be victims and fake organizations, try to capitalize on the “season of giving”. Additionally, real organizations can also mislead donors, omit material facts, and/or create a deliberate misimpression regarding the tax-deductibility and use of your gifts. So – fake charities, real charities asserting fake claims, and pretend victims with fake needs, though operating 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…

    Chimps will never be citizens of a human community, and that’s not a problem. We just need to think harder about how we justify their protectionHumans are obsessed with chimps. We’ve nursed this obsession for a long time, and it has a very particular focus: how similar are chimps to humans? It seems humans want nothing more than for chimps to return our intense, curious gaze with some unambiguous recognition. What this desire means, and where it leads us, is inextricably tangled up with broader questions about how we conceive of humans in relation to the natural world.These days, the…

In the early 2000s, limits on industrial fishing within Steller sea lions' critical habitat were adopted for some portions of the species' range (i.e., the eastern Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska) and have helped the population stabilize in those particular areas.

It’s the kind of news that stops you cold and forces you to confirm it, over and over again. And once the reality sinks in, you start to ask yourself those nagging questions: Could I have done anything to prevent this? What if I had acted more quickly? What if I had tried harder to save him? Of course, ultimately the responsibility for Archie’s death lies…

For animals in research, enforcement is unfortunately lacking and some laboratories are getting a free pass from even meeting the most basic standards of care. The audit says animals in research labs are not always receiving basic humane care and treatment. Photo: The HSUS An audit released this month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s…

Yet despite two years of gridlock, Congress delivered a number of important successes for animals in the past two years. There were some major setbacks and disappointments, too. But the successes in the areas of animal fighting, chimpanzee sanctuaries, horse slaughter,…

That continues the surge in animal protection policymaking by state legislatures, and in total, it makes more than 1,000 new policies in the states since 2005, across a broad range of subjects bearing upon the lives of pets, wildlife, animals in research and testing, and farm animals. That is tremendous forward progress, closing the gaps in the legal framework for animals, and ushering in…

Since the drop trap has no bottom, once the trap covers…

I do not care for drop boxes – cages or kennels that are made available for the public after hours so that they can drop off a pet when the facility is closed. In theory, the boxes make some sense – the good Samaritan who finds the lost pet in the middle of the night can drop off the animal, leave all of their relevant contact information and details on where they found the animal, and “zing!,” the animal can be reunited with the…
