Activists from ALF are claiming responsibility for a fire that caused an estimated $300,000 damage to Scientific Resources International. From the site: In the early morning hours of May 18th, four incendiary devices were planted at Scientific Resources International, a supplier of non-humyn primates for use in vivisection labs all over northern Nevada.

Canada to Push Seal Hunt Agenda at G-7

Critter News

Canada needs to stop exploiting its natural resources and move into a more sophisticated type of economy. The Canadian government is so damn stubborn on this issue. The second half of the article deals with their attempts at pushing that damn seal hunt. Is it THAT much a part of its economy? You'd think they were a developing nation with nothing else to offer.

On Jeff Corwin's 100 HEARTBEATS

Animal Person

I know he's a conservationist, therefore I know he will advocate for "managing" the "resources" that are sentient nonhumans. And of course that premise is only possible because the animals (and everything else on the planet) are our "resources." That depends largely on us, our priorities, and our allocation of resources. We can stop using animals and "allocate resources" to educate Homo sapiens worldwide to change their relationship to the animals around them.

Sea Lions Shot Near Seattle

Critter News

Of course, will be there sufficient resources expended to catch the killers? This is in our own backyard. Total cowards. I hope they're caught because they could face a 50 thousand dollar fine. The deaths are a violation of the Marine Mammals Act and, because it’s a protected species, the shooting death of a Steller sea lion also violates the federal Endangered Species Act.

Etched In My Heart

4 The Love Of Animals

Another thing we love about Etched In My Heart is that they donate part of their proceeds to The PetSave Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Bona Tucker in June 2000 as a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption resource for domestic rabbits, cats and dogs. Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird. Not only are they unique, but the frames are high quality too.

"The Cove" Is Getting Attention

Here is a glowing review from Joel Reynolds with the Natural Resources Defense Council. We posted about "The Cove" a few months ago. It's a documentary about an annual Japanese dolphin hunt that occurs in the village of Taiji. It's gruesome, bloody and disturbing. It has just been screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

Still, what an awesome resource. You can do a name search on to see if there is any information in their database. But remember, "all individuals are innocent until proven guilty. This search is intended to be used only as a guide, and it should be remembered that there may be instances where two people live in the same town with the same or similar names." These people are amazing.

Just in time for summer too, because as you can see, Baby’s new bamboo collar is super spunky in blue and lime green.

Zambia Calls for Tougher Wildlife Crime Enforcement

Critter News

Zambia's Minister of the Environment and Natural Resources is calling for a greater cooperation between her country's agencies in dealing with this serious issue. Wildlife crime such as poaching and live animal smuggling is becoming increasingly sophisticated. This because it is being run by organized crime networks with professional and ruthless criminals. It's not just some guy with a gun and snare.

This will not only get people involved, but may also force the govt. Here is Island Dog's site.

Diabetes in pets.

To help pet parents better understand diabetes in pets, VCA Animal Hospitals have a great resource library of articles regarding pet diabetes and pet healthcare. November was National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month, were you aware that just like humans, dogs and cats can also get diabetes? In fact, one in 200 cats and one in 500 dogs has diabetes. As with most medical conditions, early detection and treatment of diabetes is recommended and can help with treatment.

Ways to Effectively Lobby Congress

Critter News

It's a great resource. OpenCRS is another great resource. Mark Markarian has a great post on how to effectively lobby Congress on animal issues. All I can add, as a former Legislative Correspondent and Legislative Assistant is to put in a good word for Medicare and Social Security. Creakers vote more then any other demographic group. You don't have to say you're old. Just give them the impression that you are. Make them work for the response instead of spitting out one form letter.

NYT Equine Thought Experiment

Animal Person

As humans tend to do, early ones looked around them and saw everything and everyone as resources for their use. Forgot to hit "publish now" on this. The New York Times presents us, this morning, with "Equine Alternative" regarding the recent discovery that horses decided to allow themselves be domesticated by humans for our mutual benefit, earlier than we had thought (3500 BC, and we preciously thought it was more like 2500 BC).

On "Cheating" and Cookbook Authors

Animal Person

I'd imagine that the more resources available to the mainstream about going vegan and cooking/preparing vegan food, the better the odds that more people will go vegan. There was nothing surprising about Oprah's most recent show about food. It was full of Michael Pollan, Food Inc., the way we treat animals, and the way we turn food into food facsimiles with unusually long shelf lives.

New Jersey Bear Hunt to Continue as Planned

Critter News

22, State Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin rejected an appeal made by the Animal Protection League of New Jersey (APLNJ) and the West Milford-based Bear Education and Resource (BEAR) Group to postpone the six-day hunt, scheduled for a seven-county region that includes parts of Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Passaic, Morris, Somerset and Bergen counties. Despite efforts by animal rights activists to stop this hunt, it is scheduled to continue.

On "Animal Activism"

Animal Person

And I don't see how they further our goal of getting humans to realize that nonhumans are not resources for them to exploit. I've used the term "animal activism" lately as an experiment. I'm trying to gauge people's receptivity to what I'm about to say. I notice that if I use "animal rights activist" or anything with the word "rights" in it, because it's loaded and misunderstood, my listener often has an immediate bias of some kind.

Creature Update

Animal Person

So many, so little time, so little support and so few resources. As many of you know, 2009 was chock full of creature-related drama for me. From the feral cats of Project Treadstone to Charles' back surgery to problems with Violet's Vetsulin (insulin for dogs), we had more than our share of issues. If I told you what I spent last year doing work-wise, you probably wouldn't believe me and you'd definitely suggest I write a book about it.

On "Home"

Animal Person

I would like to have seen action points in the film: things the average person can do to stop our hyperspeed collision course with the annihilation of all of our planet's natural resources (and by consequence Earth's nonhuman and human inhabitants). I watched Home earlier in the week and you can watch it on YouTube here , though a huge flat screen is definitely preferable. You get the idea at YouTube but the experience is vastly different on a great television.

Belgian City Goes Vegetarian Once a Week

Critter News

Not only is there reason to believe that livestock contribute to greenhouse gases, but meat is resource-intensive to produce. Last week, the City of Ghent in Belgium started eating vegetarian one day a week. Public officials and politicians will start, with school children following in September. It's their way of acknowledging the impact of livestock on the environment.

New Research Shows Crabs Feel Pain

Critter News

Overfishing, poor resource management, the view of life as a product for sale, and pure greed is crashing fisheries and destroying beautiful ecosystems. I was afraid of this. If you've ever wondered why I have a clinical view of the meat industry, it's because I worked for three years in the accounting department of a very large shrimp importer that also sold finfish, shellfish and value-added products (ie. frozen seafoods with sauces, etc.)
