"Claire Bass, senior director of campaigns and public affairs at Humane Society International, said: “The government’s decision to abandon the #KeptAnimalsBill is an astonishing betrayal of both animals and public trust.”

She said she believed “the bill has been dropped because of concerns that it could act as a vehicle for uncomfortable debates that the government does not want held on polarising issues such as hunting with dogs”.

Interesting perspective on #animalwelfare after the Supreme Court's #Jallikattu case verdict by Suhrith Parthasarathy. Connecting to Nussbaum's book Justice for Animals, he proposes that we need a conception of our own rights to live in a world free of such #animalcruelty as witnessed in Jallikattu in #Tamilnadu

“The Supreme Court has upheld California #Proposition12 — the nation’s strongest farm #AnimalWelfare law—and made clear that preventing #AnimalCruelty and protecting public health are core functions of our state governments. […] We won’t stop fighting until the pork industry ends its cruel, reckless practice of confining mother pigs in cages so small they can’t even turn around. It’s astonishing that pork industry leaders would waste so much time and money on fighting this commonsense step to prevent products of relentless, unbearable animal suffering from being sold.”

This story is a salient example of just how utterly polarized our nation is, which deeply saddens me. And as both a vegan and a woman of childbearing age, it's also frankly terrifying.

At what point do Tory voters stop and think, "No, I can't support them anymore"?
Seriously.
Obviously, the Tories don't give a fuck about human beings, so why would they give a shit about animals?

Elon Musk and another unethical practice. Yet the problem is not with him but the regulator’s approach to this matter. Business people don’t like compliance until non-compliance hurts their monetary interests!

"Root veggies, certain tree fruits and nuts were all more than 200 times more climate-efficient by weight than beef."

what a ridiculous high number. and this is ONLY the ecological argument. there is the antibiotic argument, the animal ethic, the human health, land usage.... etc. pp.

animal farming lobby is evil in every aspect. they are actively destroying the environment and lives of countless beings.

Two reasons not to eat pork, one for your health and one out of animal welfare concerns.

1. Rotten pork has been sold in the UK:

2. 80% of pigs being slaughtered are gassed with CO2, despite this being well-known to cause distress.

I know leaving twitter is the right thing to do & I’m doing it. & I like mastodon. But I miss the people I followed in Kyiv who told me about #UkraineWar & the #veterinarians talking about #animalwelfare & rights and the reports about #womenlifefreedom that I used to get… if anyone has recommendations to fill those gaps over here I’d be grateful (I already hound the ones on twitter to move, but I can see if you are part of resistance in #iran or #ukraine it might be hard to find time to move…

"No Animals Were Harmed" in the making of this film.

American Humane (background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Humane ) came up with this phrase, and it's been used at the end of each film/tv show for decades.

A good thing too, and compared to letting poor horses run off cliffs, it's a great way to ensure no animals are harmed. Despite its criticism, they seem to be doing the right thing.

But, there are a set of animals that they constantly ignore. The same animals most people ignore. You guessed it, it's the animals that are already dead, or "food", on set. And once you know that the steak a person is eating, (in that white table cloth restaurant scene with the generic background music), was once part of a cow, you can't take that phrase seriously. No #vegan can anyway.

...

Me and my BFF don't have heaps of time to watch TV anymore. We watch a few episodes here and there and the latest show we have been (re)watching is #ModernFamily.

We love it, and since it's been so long since we first saw it, it feels like we are watching it for the first time.

One thing is different hough. All the turkeys/chickens (Christmas/Thanksgiving), all the cows (cheese, steak, milk, burgers), all the pigs (bacon), all the alpacas.

We see them now. They are there now. And even though they weren't harmed in the making of the tv show, they were harmed for the tv show. And it's a real damn shame too.

I did my undergraduate degree in 2006-2009. Let me tell you right now, #veganism or having any thought or care for any animal that wasn't a pet, or a cute wildlife documentary poster animal, was non existent in my mind.

Despite Uni being a blur, there is a moment of one class I will never forget, one where I got told the truth of something that I wasn't quite ready to accept as the reality of the world. The class was "Human Physiology", & we had a lecture with a kind, patient, thorough, funny, & informative professor, & though I didn't realise it or fully appreciated it at the time, he was #vegan too.

Homunculus man was brought up in the lecture & from there he went on a tangent with #fish:

"Did you know fish have pain receptors in their mouth as well?" 🐟
"So every time they get caught by a fishing rod, they are in pain, & they are suffering." 🎣

A student put their hand up to say: "A net would be better than a fishing rod then, so they won't feel any pain." 🕸️

The professor dead-panned:
"Why not just use a stick of dynamite?"🧨

The class laughed, however uneasily.

I didn't see it then, & while I had the memory with me for a long time, it would take many many years before I came to know what this professor knew all too well.

The poor fish, whether by rod, net, or explosion, didn't want to die... & while we can't control the vast oceans, we can control, ourselves. 🌱
