Critter News

The campaigners claim polls show 90 percent of the public would support such a ban. I hope they can do it. I absolutely despise circuses. Hmmmm.sounds awfully high to me. When they tried to ban circuses in Seattle about 10 years ago, there was this big outcry. It was actually pretty weird.

From Bite Back: On July 10, 2009 3 vehicles and the home of a UC Irvine vivisector were hit by the ALF. 1 of his cars (the fanciest of the 4 in front) was doused with paint stripper. 2 others had red paint poured all over them.

Every time I go to Bite Back Magazine , I'm struck by how many times ALF activists in Mexico have targeted fast food outlets. I suppose they are easy to get at.

Celebrities Joining in Campaign Against Marine Animal Captivity

Critter News

This article claims that Raul Julia's son is recruiting celebrities to help end the captivity of marine animals. 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.

Europe Votes to Ban Seal Products

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".

Hal Herzog's "Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat"

Animal Person

The campaign to moralize meat has largely been a failure. Hal Herzog’s “ Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat ” (Harper 2011), though fascinating, is ultimately depressing for vegans and animal rights activists. Over at Animal Rights and AntiOppression , we’ve been discussing tactics and sharing our thoughts and experiences about what works and doesn’t work when it comes to advocacy.

On the Psychological Continuum

Animal Person

I do disagree with some of what follows, though, and agree with some as well (my comments are in italics): The animal rights movement must adapt their political campaigning strategies to these psychological facts. That means, political campaigns must incorporate the following aspects: Centre your campaign material on presenting suffering and stimulate compassion and empathy in people. The campaign should not demand huge changes in society.

Knowing them, I bet they were hoping for fish and chips instead!).

PETA Activist Pied in the Face

In other news, PETA received more publicity for their anti seal hunting campaign when one of their protesters was hit in the face with a pie. A PETA anti seal hunt activist was hit in the face with a pie in Newfoundland. This after a PETA activist hit Canada Fisheries Minister Gail Shae with a pie. That's good, because I really hate Canada's odious seal hunt.

On the Vegan "Diet"

Animal Person

When I first saw PCRM's " Kickstart Your Health With a Vegan Diet " campaign, I let out a bit of a sigh. And if this campaign increases the number of people who decrease their animal usage in their diets, that's a great step. My dogs eat vegan dog food. They don't have collars made from animals. But they also haven't made a moral choice to not use animals.
