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.

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.

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 pet-abuse.com 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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

I watched Home earlier in the week and you can watch it on YouTube here , though a huge flat screen is definitely preferable.
