Only for Dogs and Birders – Kalamas Delta, Greece

10,000 Birds

But, passing numerous Red-backed Shrikes , Western Yellow Wagtails and a herd of sheep among tussocks of long grasses, I remember those egrets. I am checking the grass for any flash of white and soon my suspicion is confirmed: Cattle Egrets (cover photo)! Along the track leading there are numerous Crested Larks (by cattle corrals), Spotted Flycatchers and Whinchats (in reedbeds), until I reach the sea and climb the dyke to spot many grassy islets.

J. Baird Callicott on Domesticity

Animal Ethics

From the perspective of the land ethic a herd of cattle, sheep, or pigs is as much or more a ruinous blight on the landscape as a fleet of four-wheel drive off-road vehicles. But this is not true of cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens. Callicott thinks so-called animal liberationists such as Peter Singer (author of Animal Liberation [1975]) want to release cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens into the wild.

Moral Vegetarianism, Part 3 of 13

Animal Ethics

If beef cattle who could not feel pain were developed, then it would be permissible to eat them.

Clearly, cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, and fish do not consent to being eaten. For an explanation of this feature, click on “Moral Vegetarianism” at the bottom of this post. What Meat Should Not Be Eaten?

When conservation and animal rights collide

10,000 Birds

Symptoms in domestic animals vary: dogs tend to show nervous system signs such as convulsions and uncontrollable running, whilst large herbivores such as cattle and sheep more predominantly show cardiac signs. In responding to Suzie’s post defending wildlife rehabilitation I began to think again about the areas in which animal rights and animal welfare overlap with the field of conservation, and the ways in which they don’t.

21, 2008 To the Editor: The correct response to “The Biggest Beef Recall Ever” is to not just be appalled and sickened at the horrifying treatment of living beings at the Westland/Hallmark Meat Company plant, but to realize that this is almost certainly just the tip of the iceberg, that not just cows are being tortured, but pigs, turkeys, chickens, calves and sheep. To the Editor: Your Feb. 21 editorial “ The Biggest Beef Recall Ever ” made some excellent points.
