Humane Society University to Offer Courses in Fall 2009

Critter News

Very cool! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. From the Humane Society's press release. Further advancing its leadership in human-animal studies, Humane Society University, an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States, announced today that it has received a license as a higher education degree-granting institution by the District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission.

UK Hunting Ban Could Be in Jeopardy

Critter News

It bans fox hunting, hare coursing, and stag hunting. Tags: UK fox hunting hare coursing stag hunting It's been five years since the hunting ban was passed in Britain. You can still flush a fox out with dogs, but you can't kill it. If the Tories take over, it could be in real jeopardy. They are totally against the ban.

Of course I couldn’t taste them in a cake or anything, but I didn’t really like working with them anyway. I never used to bake. Ever. I think there were 2 main things that kept me from baking: 1) baked goods only lead me to eating more junk food, and 2) eggs.

Where Does Vegan Baby Sky Get Her Protein?

Of course she eats a bunch of batter first, then a couple of pancakes. I'm constantly asked about the details of Baby Sky's life. Where does she get her protein? How are her bones going to grow without cow's milk? You mean she's never eaten bacon? Are you a communist?

“You Want Farm Animals to Go Extinct!”

Creature Talk

Of course I do - but I want their existences to be ones of joy and comfort. This is one of my favorite responses from omnivores when they find out that I would love it if the whole world stopped eating animals. “But what would we do with all the animals that are currently on farms? They’d have to die–we can’t possibly keep them all around if they’re going to serve no purpose.* Is that what you want? You want all the farm animals to just die ?&#.

Of course, the world outside of our home tells a different story. Thanksgiving 2010 will be Baby Sky's first, and our opportunity to introduce her to the notion that our family doesn't eat animals (not to mention that other historical story we'll be correcting).

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

Animal Person

Of course I was appalled, but out there in the mainstream world, she is an outlier. Of course that can be debated. 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.

He would stop at fast food restaurants and get 2-3 burgers to eat over the course of a few hours. Several years ago my now 59 year old father had a heart attack. It wasn’t a major heart attack, but it has definitely caused him problems. He’s been on medication since it happened, and has regular stress tests to see if the damage to his heart has progressed.

On "EATING ANIMALS" by Jonathan Safran Foer

Animal Person

Of course, the problem here, as in the entire book, is that factory farming is clearly the enemy, while killing animals unnecessarily isn't given any more airtime than Foer's personal, philosophical moments that he doesn't require of anyone else.

On Fighting for "Animal Rights"

Animal Person

Of course , I say to myself, language is worth fighting for. Being featured on ARZone's worldwide Live Guest Chat has reinvigorated my thinking about a couple of topics ( here 's the transcript). And then I read the "OMG!!!!!OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!" OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!" LOL!!!!!" in today's New York Times, and I couldn't resist posting.

On Ducks and Geese

Animal Person

Not to be confused with Little Girl, of course. I've written about the much-maligned Muscovy ducks before , and at our old house this time of year I was usually inundated with rescue situations and of course my patio often had images like this. This is Girlie Girl.

On "The Botany of Desire"

Animal Person

And of course, the entire book is a commentary on what happens when humans decide that a plant, for whatever reason, is desirable (or perhaps, as Pollan suggests, we have been set up by the plants to desire them). This is coming very, very late, but part of why " Food Inc."

Of course, that also rendered her defective and she was therefore immediately "discarded." But now, of course, I want more. There she is. my girl. She has beaten the odds and made it another year. The life expectancy of greyhounds is 12-15 years. If they've raced, you subtract a year for each year of racing.

TD, of course, wasn't too keen on hot dogs for nutritional reasons at the very least. First of all, anyone who has taught The Princeton Review's SAT, LSAT or GRE courses knows that answers with the word "everything" in them are rarely correct. You may recall me writing about TD, my tax-resisting, raw-food eating, no-TV watching, parachuting-into-nuclear reactor(ing?) boyfriend of over 20 years ago.

On Mainstreaming Veganism

But of course she asked the right person and we went on a quest (and found nothing vegan) and ended up chatting about veganism. All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
