Well, well, look who’s advocating a plant-based diet now: Bill Gates! (We did not add him to our payroll, we swear.)

No surprise, it’s happened again. Another frustrated captive killer whale attacked a trainer.

And now for a bit of trivia. Who said it? “I had a lot of quirks as a child. One was that I didn’t like to eat meat; didn’t like to chew it, didn’t like the taste or smell of it, and just wasn’t having any of it.”

NEW ACTION ALERTS

Every year, horses are killed during the Calgary Stampede. Urge Alberta Premier Alison Redford to help get at least the most deadly event—the chuckwagon races—canceled.

Tell Sarasota County, Florida, officials that letting feral pigs be mauled by dogs and stabbed is cruel, and ask them to use humane methods if they insist on killing hogs.

NEW FEATURES

Monkeys aren’t laboratory equipment, and they aren’t luggage either. Tell United Airlines to stop transporting monkeys to their deaths in laboratories.
