"Meat, dairy and eggs with humane certifications are becoming increasingly popular as consumers attempt to live in accordance with the notion that we can eat animals as long as they were treated well. And yet, these certifications do not mean what many think they do."
Increasingly, ethical questions of how we use and abuse animals are gripping us. We ...

"PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in an email that the zoo is an 'animal prison' that 'not only should close but also never should have been opened in the first place.'
She called Hackenberger 'a bully' and suggested the zoo grounds could be replaced with condominiums."

Are condos really the best solution she could think of? Personally, I think they're just another set of problems waiting to happen.
The Bowmanville Zoo says financial hardships due to poor attendance has forced it to close its doors for good at the end of the 2016 season.

"I get that activists angered about the Yulin festival wanted to do something about it. But they could have raised money or posted selfies supporting the work of Chinese animal rights groups. They could have written letters to the Chinese government, or even protested outside of New York City’s Chinese consulate where they could speak to the actual Chinese government. They didn’t need to confuse the difference between Chinese and Chinese American with their moral scolding. They didn’t need to trample over the work of Chinese animal rights activists by reinforcing the narrative of Eastern backwards-ness and Western enlightenment."
Since 2009, one festival in China has caused a stir in the animal rights community. The festival — the Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival — was inaugurated that year, and immediately re…

"Landfill Dogs tells the stories of homeless dogs who will be killed if they aren't adopted. Instead of shooting them at the shelter, however, Shannon takes them to a municipal landfill site.
Most obviously, this is where the dogs will end up if they don't find a home, trash buried among other discarded possessions. More subtly, county animal shelters are managed by the same government department as landfills, suggesting, as Shannon says, that "homeless cats and dogs are just another waste stream." Homeless animals at picturesque landfill sites also represents the idea of trash transformed into beauty: animals on death row reveling in play and affection, buried garbage a breathtaking background."
Shannon Johnstone is a photography professor at Meredith College in North Carolina. She's also the brainchild behind <a href="http://www.landfilldogs.com/"><em>Landfill...

"'The most important thing is breaking with the model of captivity and exhibition,' animal rights lawyer Gerardo Biglia, a long-time campaigner for the closure of this city’s zoo, said in statements to the press. 'I think there is a change coming for which we are already prepared because kids nowadays consider it obvious that it’s wrong for animals to be caged.'"

"Western vegans who are criticizing this festival: Stick to your own backyard. There are many vegans and animal rights activists in China who can protest dog slaughter without colonialist intervention. Call out racism and speciesism if you see comments like the ones in the above screenshots. Emphasize that all of our fellow animals—not just cute, cuddly, or 'intelligent' individuals—are people, not property."

I've been a big fan of Our Hen House for years, which is one of the many reasons why I'm happy to share their latest podcast episode where I had a chance to chat with Mariann about T.O.F.U., touring, publishing, and more.

The focus of the next issue will be on declining physical health and veganism, so it's exciting to see people such as Ginny Messina looking into the topic too. There need to be more conversations about this sort of thing!

"If a product, service, diet, 'lifestyle,' or helpful bit of advice seems to be selling you something, ask, 'What emotions is this asking me to feel? Why is the message positioned the way it is? Does this company want me to actually invest in healthful behaviors, or is it more interested in buying my shame?'
Your mental, emotional, and (yes) physical health is worth so much more than what the marketers will buy it from you for."
Example #1: “Selling fat loss as health.” People have been trained to be afraid of fat – but it's time to be aware of how fatphobia is being sold to you for profit.
