San Francisco Schools Join Meatless Mondays | Ecorazzi

Life or Lunch?

san-francThe San Francisco Unified District has just joined the Meatless Monday movement and will not be serving any of its kids meat once a week.

“The school district recently joined the international Meatless Monday movement and is participating by offering exclusively meat-free meals in its elementary and middle school cafeterias every Monday, and by educating students about the health benefits of eating more plant-based foods,” stated a press release by the Humane Society of the United States praising the district’s decision.

Some of the foods that will be replacing meat menu items on Mondays are “bean burritos, taco triangles with sides of apples and fresh baby carrots.”

“Americans eat too much meat, and we pay a heavy price for it,” said Kristie Middleton, food policy manager of HSUS in a statement. “Providing more plant-based meals to kids can improve their health and raise their consciousness about how their food choices…

Video of the Day: Phillip Wollen – Animals Should Be Off The Menu

The Paw Report

Dylan, rescued and happy at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Photo by me. Dylan, rescued and happy at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Photo by me.

Dylan, pictured to the left, was going to be veal. Can you imagine? Now he’s thriving, happy, and sociable at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. I met Dylan when I visited Woodstock a couple of years ago. I snapped this photo as he ran over to us, eager to get to know us and to receive pets and scratches.

Dylan is lucky because he was saved. But for billions of other animals, they are not so lucky. We force them into factory farms, we separate families, we kill them young, we cause them harm and suffering. And then we eat them. And then we repeat the process again, and again.

Phillip Wollen’s incredible speech calls for us to stop eating animals. After I saw many, many friends sharing and commenting on it, I finally got around to watching his…

Tuesday night rally for NYC carriage horses alert

Tuesday's Horse

COALITION TO BAN HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGES

Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages.

Enough is Enough! He promised to ban horse-drawn carriages when he got into office. Many people voted for him because of this. We were delighted that we finally seemed to have a kindred spirit in our new mayor. But here it is 10 months since Mayor deBlasio was elected and he has not kept that promise.

The horse-drawn carriage trade continues with all of its inhumanity, its many accidents; lack of meaningful law enforcement, lack of safety – made stronger by the lies perpetrated by the NY Daily News, Teamsters and Working Families Party – lies that go unchallenged by the Mayor’s office. We have been very patient, waiting for some action. But nothing has happened and we have reached our breaking point. We say enough is enough.

Chinchillas Are Waiting For New Homes

Alexandra´s Animal Awareness Blog

Photo: RSPCA Photo: RSPCA

Photo:PeTA Photo:PeTA

There are many chinchillas being kept as pets. Subjectively, I believe most of them are in homes unsuited for these rodents whose looks make them more “likable” than for example rats. Since chinchillas can live for up to twenty years chances are they will not be kept by the same people their whole lives. These little animals come from the Andes mountain range, do not like heat nor high humidity. But more often than not, they have to live in surroundings totally unsuitable for them. And then there is their beautiful fur. Some people would rather wear their chinchilla as coat than take care of the live animal.

“Valley View Chinchilla Ranch masqueraded as a breeder of “pets,” despite slaughtering, skinning, and selling the pelts of any chinchillas who supposedly did not “work out” as companions and even going so far as to hide its involvement in…

Protestors claim BLM Wild Horse policies are wrong because cattle ranchers are favored

Straight from the Horse's Heart

as published on Country10.com

“Older horses are the Encyclopedia Britannica of the herds and they keep the stallions from breeding when conditions are not good.”

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Wild Horse advocates gathered outside of the student center building at Central Wyoming College to protest the Bureau of Land Management’s treatment of and plans for Wild Horses across the West. Simone Netherlands, representing Respect 4 Horses, said she attends every BLM Advisory Board meeting on Wild Horses held twice a year around the region.

“There is no overpopulation of wild horses, we’ve gone from over two million wild horses to just 30,000 in the wild,” she said. “but they complain that they’re overrun with wild horses.”

In prepared remarks delivered at noon, Netherlands said, “we now…

http://aldf.org/urgent-action-for-louisianas-animals/

These amendments will close a loophole that might otherwise enable unscrupulous exhibitors to obtain an exemption from the state’s restrictions on private possession of dangerous species. They also will allow for the Department to make key, unannounced inspections at facilities that house dangerous wild animals. While ALDF continues to seek justice and freedom for Tony the tiger, the welfare of other captive wild and exotic animals will remain at risk unless these important regulatory changes are made.

We need your help today to make sure that the Department does the right thing and adopts these critical changes!

Horse Killer Finds God, Makes Apology

heatherclemenceau

Don CorleoneWritten by:  Heather Clemenceau

Canadian horse advocates will almost certainly recall the bizarre case of horse-decapitator Darrell Mowat. In 2012, in a scene straight out of “The Godfather,” the Niagara Falls, Canada man went full-out Don Corleone when he killed and decapitated a draft horse and left its head in the pickup bed of an acquaintance. The remains of the two-year old Percheron, known as “Joe” were later found by Niagara Regional police on a hobby farm in rural Niagara Falls, where Mowat volunteered as a farm hand.

Mowat, now 30, was charged with killing cattle contrary to section 444 of the Criminal Code of Canada, willfully causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal, and mischief under $5,000. Under the Criminal Code, “killing cattle” also refers to killing horses. His arrest and later publicity were followed by petitions to ensure that he served actual jail time, which he ultimately…

Icelandic volcano could trigger Britain’s coldest winter EVER this year

Nwo Report

Britain could face a freezing winter if the Icelandic volcano erupts

BRITAIN could freeze in YEARS of super-cold winters and miserable summers if the Bardarbunga volcano erupts, experts have warned.

Depending on the force of the explosion, minute particles thrust beyond the earth’s atmosphere can trigger DECADES of chaotic weather patterns.

Tiny pieces of debris act as billions of shields reflecting the sun’s light away from earth meaning winter temperatures could plunge LOWER THAN EVER before while summer will be devoid of sunshine.

The first effect could be a bitterly cold winter to arrive in weeks with thermometers plunging into minus figures and not rising long before next summer.

The Icelandic Met Office has this week warned  of “strong indications of ongoing magma movement” around the volcano prompting them to raise the aviation warning to orange, the second highest and sparking fears the crater could blow at any moment.

The region has also this week been hit by a magnitude-four earthquake…

Following a successful operation in Cuzco, Peru, today Smith the lion (whose life had been threatened after the attack on a woman at the circus), Kiara’s two cubs and Pepe the monkey were all taken from Circo Monaco. The huge operation involved the police, ADI, SERFOR and ATFFS. The animals are now on their way to our Spirit of Freedom temporary rescue centre. ADI commends the determination of the Peru authorities in the face of considerable aggression.

ADI is making a massive commitment to this operation, providing all funding, trucks, cages, crates, veterinary, food and care to rescue animals. Today was a good day for animals but we urgently need more funds for Operation Spirit of Freedom. Help us get them to safety.

More Than 90,000 Acres of Critical Tiger Habitat Will Be Logged

With fewer than 1,500 Bengal Tigers left in the wild, these magnificent cats are on the brink of extinction, and now the FDCM are threatening their survival by pushing plans to log some of the only precious natural habitat they have left.

The area due to be cut is so vital to the tigers that it was once earmarked to become a protected wildlife refuge. Care2 reader Mary Elizabeth heard about this alarming news and started a petition to fight back against this appalling decision and to help save the forest from being logged for profit.

Less than one hundred years ago, tigers prowled freely and abundantly all across the Indian subcontinent, but exploding human…

August 25th, 2014. More than 720 whales have been harpooned in Norway in the most deadly hunting season since the Government began defying an international ban in 1993.

The number is under the country’s self-imposed quota of 1,286 and the Government claims the four-month hunt is for the “protection and sustainable harvesting of marine resources”.

GRAPHIC VIDEO; WILD ANIMALS IN CIRCUSES IN THE UK…Why no ban yet?? Please help!

STOP ANIMAL ABUSE

“Please, if you care about wild animals being exploited for entertainment & money, take action & send an email to the links below; I don’t know about you, but I am sick of being hoodwinked! The BRITISH Government are stalling for some reason, whilst other Countries (even those known for their poor welfare of animals) have managed a ban….why not England?? All those in government need to watch the video at the end of this post, even though posted in 2010, little has changed, for animals are still being beaten into submission by cruel trainers, taking their own frustrations out, on sentient beings, who can’t speak about the abuse. Circuses are interested only in the money their animal performances bring in, which brings horrific suffering to those entrusted to entertain…THE ENGLISH GOVERNMENT HAVE TO HONOUR THEIR PROMISE OF A BAN ON WILD ANIMALS IN CIRCUSES ASAP…I only feel total empathy & sorrow for those sentient…

Animal Cruelty Near My Own Hometown…..

Dogpaddling Through Life

Moulton is a small town of 3,000 people located in northern Alabama. It’s less than an hour from the town where I grew up. The people are friendly, church-going conservatives.

And it’s the home to horrific animal cruelty.

.

Meet Carolyn Atchison. For a decade, she contracted with Lawrence County, Alabama, to operate the holding facility for the county’s animal control services. In return she received $70,000, use of and gasoline for a county truck, and a cell phone. She lost her contract in 2013.

She’s also the owner of Animal House Zoo, a backyard zoo housing all sorts of exotic animals. She used to have a USDA license to own exotic animals, and in 2004 owned 29 tigers. Her license wasn’t renewed in 2006 because of violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

What do these two things have in common? Simply put, she used to feed the dogs…

Vegan Options Abound at New 49ers Stadium | VegNews

Life or Lunch?

hot-dogFrom jackfruit sandwiches to Field Roast hot dogs, fans can have it all at the just-opened Levi’s Stadium.

This past Sunday, Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA—the new home of the San Francisco 49ers—opened up to great fanfare. Despite a loss to the Denver Broncos, fans seeking out meat-free options couldn’t have been more overjoyed. From BBQ jackfruit sandwiches and vegetable curry to mushroom-filled Chinese buns and even dedicated vegan hot dog stands, the new sports stadium has been dubbed “the most vegan-friendly in the nation” by several media sources. According to catering CEO Des Hague, the intent was to “design a hospitality program to usher in a new fan experience, and to match the Bay Area’s diverse culture.” There are 32 vegan options at the sports field.
