Supposedly these celebrities include actors Johnny Depp and Wesley Snipes, singer Elton John and rapper RZA.

Palin: We'll Always Have The Laughter

Critter News

But as far as her national campaign, I'm her biggest fan. Hell, I'd contribute to her campaign if I knew she wouldn't blow it on something with rhinestones or PBR for the Toddster. My laughter, not hers. Bill Shatner reading Palin isn't really critter related, but since we've been covering her since before Tina Fey knew who she was, I think this deserves a posting. The funniest part about her is that conservatives think that we "hate" her.

A resolution at the end of a three-year campaign, triggered by a public outcry at the annual seal culls in Canada and Norway, condemned the slaughter of seals as "inherently inhumane".

Another Critical Article Directed at CITES

This article is by the President of the Blue Frontier Campaign. The CITES irresponsible treatment of marine animals made it to Huffington Post too. I'm glad others share my disgust with CITES and the UN. Hopefully, regular citizens will read this and not just other activists. (I I forwarded an article about this to my book club members. Knowing them, I bet they were hoping for fish and chips instead!).

Who is Jennifer Fearing?

Critter News

I got curious today and googled "Jennifer Fearing," the woman who led the Yes on Proposition 2 campaign. It turns out that she was the former Humane Society Chief Economist. Pretty impressive bio (please note that the bio is from her time at HSUS). She used to head United Animal Nations too. I couldn't find any information on her current activities. Probably taking a much needed break.
