Animal Rights is Pernicious Nonsense?

Animal Person

In " 'Animal Rights:' Pernicious Nonsense for Both Law & Public Policy ," Massachusetts attorney and "sportsman" Richard Latimer is on the mark with some concepts, and way off with others. However, both his perceptions and misconceptions are based on: 1) observing the work of PeTA and HSUS; and 2) the assumption that those two organizations are in the same category--"animal rights." Now, I know you're saying: That's not what animal rights is.

On What the Animal Ag Alliance Thinks of Us

Animal Person

Through all of the damage control and message-neutralizing I have to do due to PeTA campaigns or someone lumping me with PeTA--or the HSUS, for that matter--I always remember that the real enemy of my cause is someone who wants to convince the world that there is nothing wrong with using animals when we have no need to and who profits from the "production" and slaughter of sentient nonhumans. I wish their mission was to end animal agriculture.

From the Animal Rights Action Network re: Greyhounds

Proposition 2 Poll

Critter News

As the quarterly campaign finance period closed today, the YES! on Prop 2 campaign reports a tidal wave of voter and donor support from Californians backing the effort to stop the cruel and inhumane treatment of animals on industrial factory farms. In contrast, the donations raised by the No on Prop 2 campaign have come from a handful of corporate factory farming interests—most from out of state and many which are embroiled in a national price-fixing scandal.

On a New Level of Absurdity in the Slaughter Business

While plenty of people pay attention to the question of what it means to raise an animal humanely, far fewer stop to consider the notion—and the ostensible paradox—of humane slaughter." Interestingly, the campaigns of happy meaters are acknowledged for perhaps being somewhat of a scam with the next sentence. The animal is an "it," but I wouldn't expect anything more in this type of article. To treat animals fairly, he needs to treat his workers fairly."

But there is a net loss in all meat production, not just of farmed fish or feeding fish to land animals being raised for food. Feeding grain to chickens, pigs and cows is even more inefficient, with 70 percent of grain grown in the United States going to animals raised for food. It also takes 10 times the fossil fuels to produce a calorie of animal food as it does a calorie of plant food. To the Editor: Re “ The Protein Pyramid ” (editorial, Nov.

Illegal capture for the wild animal trade is an obvious peril for such a charismatic species, but this big blue bird is also hunted both for its meat and feathers.
