YES! Cruel and Unnecessary Electric Shock Collars for Pets to Be Banned in the UK - One Green Planet

These collars, which are placed around a dog’s neck and deliver an electric shock when the trainer presses a button, are often used to discourage undesirable behaviors like unnecessary barking. Given how normalized this training method has become, many think that shock collars are humane and unproblematic. In reality, though, these devices aren’t quite as innocent as they may seem.

Why aren't we more outraged about eating chicken?

If news headlines are to be believed, flocks of toxic fowl are waiting to storm Britain’s shores like mini featherless zombies as part of a US-UK trade deal. But before getting into a flap about the health risks of chlorine, we should maybe pause to consider why you would bleach a chicken in the first place. It is actually primarily to mitigate the disease risks from raising nearly 9 billion chickens in overcrowded environments with low standards of animal welfare. However the failure to frame the chickens’ welfare as anything other than a side issue poses important questions about the nature of our interactions with animals. Why are chickens so far down in the pecking order for moral concern? The Last Memory - help stop dolphins and porpoises dying in fishing gear. Donate to help stop Japanese whaling.

This year no information has been released on how many of these adult females were pregnant, but there is a high probability that many were. We suspect that this information has not been released, to lessen public outrage, after it was confirmed that last year, nearly 90% of adult female whales killed were pregnant.

Bruce Nock. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claims a mortality rate of 0.5% in connection with captures. The agency is able to claim such a low mortality rate because it attributes to natural causes most injuries/deaths sustained during round-ups (e.g., Paymaster, NV, 2006: although 21 horses were euthanized on site, BLM claimed a zero mortality rate for the round-up). Few deaths are ever deemed by officials a “result” of the removal operations, and injury statistics are simply omitted.

They are even used in warfare experiments. Animal Aid opposes animal experiments on both moral and scientific grounds. To imprison animals and deny them their freedom to express natural instincts and to deliberately inflict physical pain in the name of science is unacceptable.
