Cat Skins Sold in Online Auction

The SPCA is very disturbed about the recent domestic house cat pelt that was  sold for about $62 (U.S. dollars) on the New Zealand website, Trade Me. The SPCA  is obviously concerned about where the pelt came from and how it was acquired.  For example, did the animal in question die naturally or was it killed  specifically for its pelt? Did the animal suffer?  The SPCA and other  animal welfare groups were also worried that the listing of the pelt  attracted a plethora of anti-cat comments, some of which were violent in  nature.

Mr. Kerridge, president of the New Zealand SPCA, says the seller was in  Manukau City where there are no known feral or wild cats. However, there are  likely many stray cats and such a cat would be protected under the Animal  Welfare Act. The New…

A Historian of The Holocaust Details the Shocking Precedent for Trump’s Decision to ‚Terrorize Children‘ @alternet


‚The fundamental problem with nationalism is that entry into the country is open to a limited group of people.‘ In recent days, millions of Americans have seen the shocking, heartbreaking images of children—crying, screaming, hysterical children—being ripped from the arms of their parents and sent away to a newly constructed camp in the Texas desert.

Does Your State Still Send Pets To Gas Chambers?

By Wayne Pacelle
Published On 09/01/2015

It was a standout week in our campaign to ensure that no pet ever faces death in a carbon monoxide gas chamber. Last week, West Virginia closed its last remaining chamber, thanks to a grant from The HSUS and the persistence of our West Virginia state director, Heather Severt. Two shelters in the state had continued to operate their chambers under a grandfather provision in the 2009 state law that banned new gas chambers, but we always knew they’d see a better way forward, and that’s exactly what’s happened.
We also secured commitments last week ensuring that Michigan will be gas chamber free by the end of 2015. Michigan senior state director Jill Fritz has worked diligently to obtain the closure of the four remaining chambers in the state, and she had an enormous assist…

When You Argue With a Fundamentalist You Don’t Know What You’re Asking For @alternet

Is it even worth trying to nudge people out of that worldview? My post-evangelical advice? Be very, very gentle—you don’t know what you’re asking.
