Whatever Milwaukee is brewing, we want
some of it. We were already rooting for the Brewers because of veggie royalty Prince Fielder,
and now we learn that vivacious outfielder Nyjer Morgan, with whom
Fielder shares this week's Sports Illustrated
cover, attributes his
out-of-the-ballpark energy and .306 batting average to his healthy vegetarian
Could Roseanne Barr be the next star
to "do a Clinton"
and convert to a vegan diet? Extolling the virtues of faux meat and tweeting at
McDonald's to stop
abusing chickens sounds like a great start.
Roth is such a
talented tweeter for animals that we gave him his own web feature. (Wait 'til you
see what he says about Go
Daddy CEO Bob Parsons. #hilarious.)
Fellow animal-friendly tweeters Pink
and Tommy Lee
took to Twitter to express their outrage over Indiana's barbaric "snapperfest." And Indiana
native Bree Olson was so
determined to stop the turtle torture that the Green Goddess posted the local
sheriff's department's contact info on her website
and asked people to call and complain.
Not to be out-tweeted, Glee star Lea Michele opined
about her dream of retiring all the horses who are forced to spend long, hot
days hauling around carriages
full of tourists in her native New York City.
The next time she visits New York, Lea
may spot Whoopi
Goldberg out buying
toy and treats for the lucky kitten she adopted after he was tossed from a
moving car. Adopting
instead of buying is catching on across the pond, too, if we can judge by Camilla Parker Bowles and her new
rescued pup, Beth. We think dedicated dog guardian Michael Vartan, who stars in
this weekend's highly anticipated thriller Colombiana, as well as a new PETA ad, would approve.
While Michael steams up the big screen, fellow
PETA pal Bethenny
Frankel will be taking
over the small one with her
new talk show. Will she get naked for animals
again? Stay tuned.

Although she plays William McKinley High's queen of mean on Glee, in real life, Dianna Agron is actually the roommate of Lea Michele, who plays her fictional nemesis. I know, you are relieved. But the good news doesn't stop there. Not only are the two talented actors actually roommates, it turns out that, like Lea, Dianna's a vegetarian and a big-time PETA supporter! Considering that Jenna Ushkowitz also loves cruelty-free meals, it looks like this season's love triangle isn't the only trifecta on the show.
Now is the perfect time to follow this gleeful trend and say hello to a vegan diet. So how about saying goodbye to meat for a month by pledging to be vegan for 30 days?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
