On Betraying Your Family

Yesterday, in the comments of An Affront to the Idea of Family , Brian wrote: I understand your concern for those cows that were beat by that man and the unfortunate death of all the cows that died in the snow storm. I am always working for the best environment and the most comfortable situation for my cows, who I consider part of my family.

More Clarity About Family Farms

Animal Person

Here are the sentences that I want to bring attention to: The family of Irv Bell, 64, has been growing hogs in Zanesville, Ohio, since the 19th century. This adds another layer to yesterday's discussion about family. Irv Bell's farm is a family farm. The marketing of an operation of breeding and slaughtering sentient nonhumans as a family farm (here, Bell straddles the line) is supposed to trigger some kind of compassion for the humans.

Animal Person

I'm not one of those people who thinks family is composed of only humans or humans who are biologically related. The idea of family is currently being used by the dairy industry in a series of commercials with the tag line: "99% of dairy farms are family owned." Good Americans, just trying to keep their families together and eke out a living in these tough times. Ninety-nine percent of dairy farms are family owned. But so are family farms.

Breed Bans are NOT the Answer

Creature Talk

Is it any wonder that a dog who is kept chained, or treated as a security system instead of as a part of the family might act out or become aggressive? When these kinds of dogs are kept indoors, are well-trained, and treated as part of the family, they are excellent companions, and rarely aggressive. I get frustrated when people suggest that all Pit bulls are a danger to society.

Vegan Betty Crocker

My friends and family are shocked and my boyfriend has started calling me Vegan Betty Crocker. I tried it out this week and it’s getting great reviews from my omni family! 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. Eggs gross me out - always have. Every time I would eat them in my pre-vegan days, I’d feel sick afterward.

But you love them and they're part of your family and returning them would be unthinkable. Saturday was the one-year anniversary of the tragic death of my Charles Hobson Booger, III and it got me thinking about how easy he was to love. Everyone loved him. Okay, not everyone. There was that little Westie whose vulva he bit early on. Yes, vulva. No stitches, no puncture, but still a nasty bruise and some scratches.

Six Thousand Leave Virunga, One Ranger Killed

Six thousand people (over 1,000 Congolese soldiers with their families) have left Virunga National Forest where so many of the remaining mountain gorillas live. You can donate to his family here. This development is the result of an agreement between the army and the Congolese Wildlife Authority. It's great news because it takes stress off the habitat and the species. Sadly, though, another ranger in the Congolese Wildlife Authority was killed by rebel guns.
