Clifton, New Jersey. Protest. Harmless Bear Shot to Death by Police. APLNJ.

The Animal Protection League of New Jersey is joining the Bear Group's protest. See details below. We hope to see you on Sunday. The BEAR Group will hold a protest THIS Sunday, July 24 (10am - 12 noon) to condemn the senseless killing of an orphan bear cub by the Clifton Police Department... and we need your support. Police claim the cub was creating a hazardous situation because it had crossed back and forth Rt 46. But the media has reported that the cub was shot in a wooded area OFF of the highway. Another source tells us that this cub was shot WHILE the police were waiting for the Division of Fish & Wildlife to arrive. Please join them that such extreme acts of cruelty will NOT be tolerated.

PAWS. Philippines. Animal Chronicles. Dr. Wilford Almoro, Shelter Vet.

Video streaming by Ustream Animal Chronicles is a weekly, one-hour radio show hosted by PAWS Director Anna Cabrera on DZRJ, 810 khz. Showtime, as of today, is Monday, 7pm Manila time which is 7am on the American eastcoast. Although I don't live in Manila, I know enough of the goings-on in that city to say that this is the first radio show devoted specifically to animal welfare. You can call it a breakthrough. This was unheard of when I was growing up in Manila. It's a wonderful opportunity, a virtual bullhorn, to spread the gospel of animal rights, welfare, and responsible dog guardianship. Not ownership, but guardianship. I cringe at the word, "owner," and I avoid it like the plague. The Philippines is still in the nascent period of its animal welfare revolution, but the country is making great strides towards a more humane society with the passing of the Philippine Animal Welfare Act (R.A. 8485) and the Anti-Rabies Act . Animal cruelty cases have begun to be heard

Air France. KLM. Largest Animal Transporter. Vivisection. Air Souffrance.

Last month, I joined other animal rights advocates in a demo outside the Air France offices on E50th street in Manhattan. Air France-KLM is the largest transporter of animals to testing facilities around the world. We remained at the site with our leaflets, posters, and megaphones for three hours and then moved on to the Grand Army Plaza on 59th street and Fifth for another 3-hour protest against the horse-drawn carriages. It was just our little contribution to the cause, our way, the traditional way of protesting. Over in France, members of the organization known as Air Souffrance carried their message like no other has done before. With their natural good looks, charm, and coordinated dress, they spread the ugly truth about the airline in style. See them HERE

Marzigliano's Live Animal Market. West New York. FAUN. Owner gets Riled Up.

Marzigliano's is a live animal market on Bergenline Avenue, West New York, NJ. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the NYC area, yes, there is a town in New Jersey called West New York. Marzigliano's has been the site of a live animal market for decades. The usual selection would include ducks, goats, pigeons, chickens, and rabbits. There is a slaughter pen in the rear of the store. They can manner-of-factly kill the animals onsite for you, if you so desired. A friend who is already in her late 50s told me that, as a child, she witnessed three goats shoved into the trunk of a car outside Marzigliano's and off they went to be slaughtered in someone's backyard. So, the place has a long history in the sale and slaughter of animals. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Marzigliano's was the last stop for many thousands of animals before slaughter. This place reeks with sadness, misery, and death. When consumers come into Marzigliano's, after a few min

Pennsylvania. Lancaster County. Puppy Mills. Truth in Advertising.

When I used to eat meat, I looked forward to those family-style dining places in or nearby Lancaster, Pennsylvania . Gettysburg was usually my final destination, and so these places would be along the way. I could see their ads on the highway; Good N Plenty was one of those places. Well, I am no longer interested in them and I don't think I will ever eat there again unless they've turned vegetarian. Here's a sign that would surely turn heads. I love it, just love it. Pennsylvania's countryside, bucolic scenes replete with monumental grain silos standing next to postcard-like barns and farmhouses, hides a nasty truth. Pennsylvania is spangled, better still, pockmarked, with innumerable puppy mills. It's like a beautiful face compromised by zits. This billboard ad informs travelers that there is misery in God's little acre. Animals that live(?) in Pennsylvania's puppy mills do not think it is a beautiful and happy place. Adopt. Do not buy from pet stores. Mo

New York City. Canada Geese Captured & Slaughtered. Inwood Park. Using the Poor.

Goose Chase: Inwood Hill Park Geese Captured It's unconscionable for Mayor Bloomberg, the city government, and the USDA to use the poor and hungry in Pennsylvania to acquit themselves, to exonerate, to justify the mass roundup and slaughter of Canada Geese in the Inwood area. These people are pitting poverty and hunger against compassion and animal rights in true manipulative form, shoving geese down the throats of the poor whether they asked for it or not, hoping that the feeding of the poor will soften their image and wrongdoing. Let the poor be, and don't use them in your grand designs. This geese roundup and slaughter do not make good sense. The geese that flight 1549 sucked into its engines are migratory geese, not local park geese. The incident happened at approximately 4,200 feet. Park geese do not fly that high. What for? Come next Winter, there will be migratory geese up there again because they come from somewhere else. It is irresponsible of the USDA to enact measure
