From Nathanwinograd.com:

Last year, the Virginia Legislature overwhelmingly passed SB 1381, requiring shelters in Virginia to be “operated for the purpose of finding permanent adoptive homes.” In other words, it mandated shelters do did what the public already thinks shelters do and what the dictionary says they do. But PETA doesn’t. PETA—which is licensed in Virginia as a shelter—kills 90% of the animals, adopts out only 1%, and steals animals like Maya, a happy and healthy dog, from her porch in order to kill her (and others).

Despite PETA’s intense effort to derail the vote, the House of Representatives voted 95 to 2 in favor of the bill. The bill passed the Senate by an equally lopsided vote: 35 to 1. And the Governor signed it. Opposition to PETA’s roving death squads may just be the only true bipartisan issue in Virginia.

Now, PETA appears intent on…

Rescue of an entangled whale in Fuerteventura Rescue of an entangled whale in Fuerteventura

January 5th, 2016. Canary Island sailor César Espino is perfectly at home out on the archipelago’s crystal clear waters – but a recent trip out at sea took an unexpected turn when he and his shipmates encountered a 45-foot (13.7 m) Bryde’s whale (Ed Sibylline : in the spanish article, they speak about a fin whale, but it’s probably a Rudolphi’s whale, based on details in the video… and so thin that we are not really optimist about its future, unfortunately) in need of rescue.

How the Human Appetite for Hamburgers is Driving Polar Bears to Eat Dolphins | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

Most people have heard about the phenomenon of global climate change due to the increased media coverage of the issue in recent years. For a long time now, climate scientists have been warning us that our current levels of greenhouse gas emissions are profoundly unsustainable, and have the power to irrevocably alter Earth’s capacity to sustain life. The oceans absorb approximately one-third of the carbon dioxide we produce, which has led them to become 30 percent more acidic since the days of the Industrial Revolution. This has grave implications for the animals, plants, and other lifeforms who dwell within them. In addition, 8.6 million acres of the world’s ice caps melt every year, and as global temperatures continue to rise, this problem is set to escalate.

It can sometimes be difficult for us to wrap our minds around the scale of the problem, or understand what the real-world impact of

Here Are The Surprising, Preventable Reasons Why People Give Up Their Pets

Emilio Cogliani

More than 1 million households give up their pets every year — and it’s not, by and large, because those animals aren’t loved or wanted.

What tworecentstudies– published in the journal Animals and the Open Journal of Animal Sciences — found is that in many cases, folks are relinquishing animals because they can’t afford their veterinary costs, or because affordable, pet-friendly rentals are so scarce. This is especially true for families with a household income of less than $50,000 per year.

Emily Weiss, the author of both studies and senior director of shelter research and development for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, is hoping her work will help spur more efforts to help families keep their pets at home and out of shelters — such as creating more pet-friendly housing, making low-cost veterinary care more widely available and expanding the availability of…

Former SeaWorld Worker Says Orcas Lost Skin From Abusive Conditions

Animal Action of Greater Reading, PA

by Eve Hartley / Huffington Post  (Photo by Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times via Getty Images) A former SeaWorld employee has revealed disturbing details of the exhibits and living conditions of the park’s captive killer whales. Sarah Fischbeck, who joined the San Diego branch of the company in 2007, spent six years working across the different departments, including performing maintenance on the tanks and diving with the animals. She told The Dodo: “If people knew what I know, or saw what I have seen, they wouldn’t sell another ticket”. Fischbeck said fighting amongst the whales had gruesome consequences: “You’d be diving at the bottom of the tanks and you’d find these long strips of what looked like black rubber,” she said. Explaining how the pieces of skin came loose, she said it was caused by the other orcas teeth, confirming the severity of the in-fighting. “It was skin they’d…
