Ethical review of regulatory toxicology guidelines involving experiments on animals: the example of endocrine disrupters. (1/32)

The safety assessment of new chemicals (including medicines, pesticides, food additives, and industrial chemicals) relies on the results of animal experiments. Because the safety of those exposed to these products and the welfare of the experimental animals used are considered critically important, both testing requirements and the welfare of experimental animals are controlled by law. In the U.K., projects that propose to use animals for experimental purposes, including for the testing of chemicals, have been controlled by law for over a century, with the most recent legislation (Animals [Scientific Procedures] Act of 1986) requiring a cost/benefit assessment before it may proceed. New regulations introduced in 1998 will require an ethical review process for all projects from April 1999. Such ethical review will have to take account of the toxicity testing methods and schemes that are required by the legislation aimed at protecting human health. Neither national nor international proposals for toxicity testing methods and schemes are generally subjected to ethical review from the point of protecting animal welfare. The international nature of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry means that testing requirements from one of the major national regulatory agencies (USA, EU, or Japan) or the international organizations (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development [OECD]or the International Conference on Harmonization [ICH]) have an impact on the testing carried out by industrial organizations in all countries. The recent proposals for screening and testing chemicals to identify endocrine disrupters (ED) from the Endocrine Disrupter Screening and Testing Advisory Committee (EDSTAC) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are used as an example of the interaction between regulatory proposals and animal welfare issues. The current proposals are the most extravagant in the use of animals. Between 0.6 and 1.2 million animals would be required for each 1000 chemicals tested. The EPA, before incorporating them into regulation, is subjecting the recommendations to further review. This will undoubtedly moderate the number of animals actually used from the worst-case calculation. The variables that have the greatest impact on the number of animals required for testing are the prevalence of ED chemicals in the chemicals to be tested, and the sensitivity and specificity of the testing methods. The modeling demonstrates, for example, that increasing the prevalence from 10 to 50% reduces the number of animals used to detect one ED from 10,000 to 2700. Knowledge of the prevalence of EDs in the chemicals to be tested would allow rational selection of tier one screening based on the sensitivity and specificity of the screening tests. The EDSTAC proposals are difficult to justify from an ethical perspective, as equally effective detection rates may be achieved with fewer animals. National and international regulatory testing proposals should be subjected to formal independent ethical review before they are finalized, with a view to improving animal welfare.  (+info)

A reply to Joseph Bernstein. (2/32)

Dr. Bernstein suggests that anti-vivisectionists should be able to fill in a directive requesting that they receive no medical treatment developed through work on animals.

A chair on alternatives? (3/32)

An overview is given on the legal framework in Europe for the use of experimental animals set by EU (European Union) Directive 86/609/EEC and on the activities of EU member states to implement this directive in the field of regulatory testing in animals. The significant decrease in the number of experimental animals in Germany during the past decade is described with particular reference to the recent increase that is due to transgenic animal models. From the regulatory and the animal welfare perspective the international harmonisation of test guidelines and the mutual acceptance of data are the way forward for chemical safety testing. The recent White Paper of the EU Commission for the future chemicals policy calls for an immediate increase in the number of validated in vitro toxicity tests to be accepted for regulatory purposes in the EU. In addition, deficits of properly educating young scientists in Germany in conducting animal experiments and implementing the 3-Rs concept of Russel and Burch are described. It is therefore, quite urgent to establish new chairs on animals and alternatives at universities in Europe. They should focus on both education young students of the biomedical sciences in the humane use of laboratory animals according to the 3-Rs concept and on developing new toxicity tests to be validated for regulatory purposes under the new EU chemicals policy by the established validation centres in Europe.  (+info)

Replacement, reduction and refinement. (4/32)

In 1959, William Russell and Rex Burch published "The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique". They proposed that if animals were to be used in experiments, every effort should be made to Replace them with non-sentient alternatives, to Reduce to a minimum the number of animals used, and to Refine experiments which used animals so that they caused the minimum pain and distress. These guiding principles, the "3 Rs" of animal research, were initially given little attention. Gradually, however, they have become established as essential considerations when animals are used in research. They have influenced new legislation aimed at controlling the use of experimental animals, and in the United Kingdom they have become formally incorporated into the Animal (Scientific) Procedures Act. The three principles, of Replacement, Reduction and Refinement, have also proven to be an area of common ground for research workers who use animals, and those who oppose their use. Scientists, who accept the need to use animals in some experiments, would also agree that it would be preferable not to use animals. If animals were to be used, as few as possible should be used and they should experience a minimum of pain or distress. Many of those who oppose animal experimentation, would also agree that until animal experimentation is stopped, Russell and Burch's 3Rs provide a means to improve animal welfare. It has also been recognised that adoption of the 3Rs can improve the quality of science. Appropriately designed experiments that minimise variation, provide standardised optimum conditions of animals care and minimise unnecessary stress or pain, often yield better more reliable data. Despite the progress made as a result of attention to these principles, several major problems have been identified. When replacing animals with alternative methods, it has often proven difficult to formally validate the alternative. This has proven a particular problem in regulatory toxicology, especially when combined with the labyrinthine processes of the various regulatory authorities. The principle of Reduction would appear less contentious, but its application has highlighted the difficulties of providing appropriate expert statistical advice, especially in academic research facilities. In some instances, concern to implement Reduction strategies can result in the use of too few animals, which leads to inconclusive results, and wasteful experiments. It is in the area of Refinement, however, that major problems have arisen. Much of our judgement of what represents Refinement is based on little more than common sense. We make assumptions about animals and their feelings that often have little scientific basis. In many instances we may be correct, but these assumptions may become incorporated into institutional or national policies, without any attempt to verify them. To give an example - it is reasonable to assume that animals will experience pain after a surgical procedure, so pain-relieving drugs should be given to prevent this. We have some idea of the appropriate dose of analgesics for most animals, but effective pain relief requires that dose given is adjusted to meet the requirements of the individual animal. Requiring every animal to have the same dose of the same drug after any surgical procedure is not the best way of dealing with post-operative pain. Discussion of these problems should not detract from the very significant progress that has been made in the 40 or so years since Russell and Burch set out their guiding principles. What is needed now is greater academic focus on this area, not only to work on new methods of implementing the 3Rs, but also to disseminate current "Best Practice", and to revise this advice as further progress is made.  (+info)

Science and society: different bioethical approaches towards animal experimentation. (5/32)

The use of live animals for experiments plays an important role in many forms of research. This gives rise to an ethical dilemma. On the one hand, most of the animals used are sentient beings who may be harmed by the experiments. The research, on the other hand, may be vital for preventing, curing or alleviating human diseases. There is no consensus on how to tackle this dilemma. One extreme is the view taken by adherents of the so-called animal rights view. According to this view, we are never justified in harming animals for human purposes - however vital these purposes may be. The other extreme is the ruthless view, according to which animals are there to be used at our discretion. However, most people have a view situated somewhere between these two extremes. It is accepted that animals may be used for research - contrary to the animal rights view. However, contrary to the ruthless view, that is only accepted under certain conditions. The aim of this presentation is to present different ethical views which may serve as a foundation for specifying the circumstances under which it is acceptable to use animals for research. Three views serving this role are contractarianism, utilitarianism and a deontological approach. According to contractarianism, the key ethical issue is concern for the sentiments of other human beings in society, on whose co-operation those responsible for research depend. Thus it is acceptable to use animals as long as most people can see the point of the experiment and are not offended by the way it is done. According to utilitarianism, the key ethical issue is about the consequences for humans and animals. Thus it is justified to use animals for research if enough good comes out of it in terms of preventing suffering and creating happiness, and if there is no better alternative. In the deontological approach the prima facie duty of beneficence towards human beings has to be weighed against the prima facie duties not to harm animals and to respect their integrity. By weighing these prima facie duties, the moral problem of animal experimentation exists in finding which duty actually has to be considered as the decisive duty. It will be argued that these three views, even though they will all justify animal experimentation to some extent, will do so in practice under different conditions. Many current conflicts regarding the use of animals for research may be better understood in light of the conflict between the three bioethical perspectives provided by these views.  (+info)

Ahimsa and alternatives -- the concept of the 4th R. The CPCSEA in India. (7/32)

The Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) in India is one of a kind in the world. It is a statutory body of the government of India formed by an act of the Indian parliament. This body consists of nominated members and representatives from national regulatory agencies, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ministry of Environment and Forests, national academic and research councils, premier research institutes, eminent scientists and animal welfare organisations. The CPCSEA draws its powers from the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act of 1960 which states that the duty of the committee is "to take all such measures as may be necessary to ensure that animals are not subject to unnecessary pain or suffering before, during or after the performance of experiments on them". With the power to promulgate its own laws to ensure the humane and ethical use of animals in research and education, the CPCSEA in 1998 notified in the gazette of India the "Breeding of and Experiments on Animals (Control and Supervision) Rules 1998". The CPCSEA is unique in that the law in itself has enabled the creation of a common platform of discussion for scientists and animal activists for humane and progressive solutions for the use of animals in experimentation. In a country that is caught in a paradox of violence and rich cultural and religious traditions, India still draws a lot of its power from the concept of "Ahimsa" (the philosophy of non-violence). This concept is also pertinent to the use of animals in laboratories. Unethical, inhumane and unscientific practices, and ignorance of the use of alternatives were the way of science until 1999 when CPCSEA became functional. For four years CPCSEA has waged a battle, rescued thousands of animals from laboratories, fought legal battles to victory, enforced for the first time in the country good laboratory practice, designed guidelines for the use of animals in the production of immunobiologicals, introduced the credo of 3R principles, trained and taught scientific personnel the credibility of humane science and most importantly brought forward the concept of the fourth R, "rehabilitation" of used laboratory animals. Today CPCSEA has made it a national policy that personnel using experimental animals have a moral responsibility towards these animals after their use. Costs of after-care/rehabilitation of animals post experimentation are to be a part of research costs and should be scaled in positive correlation with the level of sentience of the animals. This paper is about the Indian law on animal experimentation and the success story of the CPCSEA in India in inculcating the credo of 4Rs -- Replacement, Reduction, Refinement, and Rehabilitation of animals used in experimentation.  (+info)

Laboratory animals and the art of empathy. (8/32)

Consistency is the hallmark of a coherent ethical philosophy. When considering the morality of particular behaviour, one should look to identify comparable situations and test one's approach to the former against one's approach to the latter. The obvious comparator for animal experiments is non-consensual experiments on people. In both cases, suffering and perhaps death is knowingly caused to the victim, the intended beneficiary is someone else, and the victim does not consent. Animals suffer just as people do. As we condemn non-consensual experiments on people, we should, if we are to be consistent, condemn non-consensual experiments on animals. The alleged differences between the two practices often put forward do not stand up to scrutiny. The best guide to ethical behaviour is empathy--putting oneself in the potential victim's shoes. Again to be consistent, we should empathise with all who may be adversely affected by our behaviour. By this yardstick, too, animal experiments fail the ethical test.  (+info)

One thing thats been bothering me is how the mc campaigners seem to focus almost exclusively on animal rights over people rights in the Third World. For example, their picketing of mcDonalds sights seems focused exclusively or gives priority to animal rights.

 Animal rights is the position that animals should not be exploited. Animal rights people believe that animals should not be used for food, clothing, entertainment, medical research, or product testing.
In the past decade, philosopher Bernard Rollin points out, we have witnessed a major revolution in social concern with animal welfare and the moral status of animals. Adopting the stance of a moderate, Harold Guither attempts to provide an unbiased examination of the paths and goals of the members of the animal rights movement and of its detractors. Given the level of confusion, suspicion, misunderstanding, and mistrust between the two sides, Guither admits the difficulty in locating, much less staying in, the middle of the road. The philosophical conflict, however, is fairly clear: those who resist reform, fearing that radical change in the treatment of animals will infringe on their business and property rights, versus the new activists who espouse a different set of moral and ethical obligations toward animals. From his position as a moderate, Guither presents a brief history of animal protection and the emergence of animal rights, describes the scope of the movement, and identifies major players

In order to prevent cruelty to animals, many animal rights activists promote vegetarianism or even veganism. Their claim is that human beings can live healthy lives without eating meat. They also believe that humans have no right to treat animals as an inferior species. For those considering transitioning slowly to vegetarianism or just cutting down on meat, it is best to refrain from consumption of chicken and eggs. Since chickens are such small animals, the average meat-eater is responsible for the death of many more animals. Switching to a vegetarian diet can save approximately 100 animals a year. Others believe that animal consumption is the natural order of things, but that the animals should be treated as humanely as possible during their lives and at the slaughterhouse. The EU, for instance, regulates minimum standards for the farm, transport and slaughterhouse. It has published a Fact Sheet detailing its support for animal welfare. In the UK, the RSPCA runs a farm assurance and food ...

Medical ethics, as defined by, is the discipline of evaluating the merits, risks and social concerns of activities in the medical field. Medical ethics provide suggestions and principles that doctors and other healthcare professionals should take into consideration while treating patients. These principles include the Hippocratic Oath of do no harm; the patient s right to dignity, truthfulness and honesty; acting in the best interest of the patient; justice with regard to treatment and the patient s right to choose or refuse treatment (Wikipedia). These principles do not provide answers to doctors and healthcare professionals with regard to actual cases; they act as a guide in decision-making. Many doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals look to medical ethics for guidance in making life and death decisions. Medical ethics also extends itself to animals and animal rights. Acting in the best interests of animals is important since they have provided and continue to provide ...

Twelve years ago, the Liberal British MP Lord Alton quit the House of Commons largely because his party supported abortion on demand, but opposed the use of goldfish as fairground prizes. The depravity of the situation was too much even for a liberal parliamentarian. The lord resigned forthwith. The goldfish controversy was back the other week as the ruling Labour Party considered a ban on animals as competition prizes. After an intense debate that must have resembled a Monty Python skit, ministers decided that with elections coming up they would look very silly indeed if they pressed for the goldfish ban.

Tom Regan is Professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University and a leading animal rights advocate. His best known work is in the form of his book The Case for Animal Rights (1983).. Regans position on animal rights and how it differs from that of Singers.. Regan disagrees with Singers utilitarian program for animal liberation, for he rejects utilitarianism as lacking a notion of intrinsic worth. According to Regan, animals and humans all have equal intrinsic value on which their right to life and concern are based. This is precisely where Regan and Singer philosophically differ as Singer does not take into account this intrinsic value that Regan argues for; that utilitarianism lacks.. Regan calls for the total abolition of the use of animals in science, the total dissolution of the commercial animal agriculture system, and the total elimination of commercial and sport hunting and trapping. Regan writes, The fundamental wrong is the system that allows us to view animals as our ...

You guys dont understand what this is all about. Most of those videos and photos were deliberate lies, staged by people who are not interested in a transition to healthier meat - they are interested in preventing anyone from eating any meat, period.

They believe in Animal Rights, a vegan political philosophy that says that any human interference whatsoever in any animals life, whether humane or not, is exploitation. They literally believe that animals are better off dead than owned or taken care of by any humans whatsoever, for any purpose, ever.

This caricaturing of science is confusing and misleading. Breakthrough as scientists create first drug to halt Alzheimers disease, breathlessly reads one. Betting study used monkey brains, cries another, this one fuelled by the activities of animal rights campaigners. Though not alone, animal research is a particularly frequent victim of the black box effect. This is at least partly due to scientists reluctance to speak about animal research, ironically stemming from anxiety about misrepresentation of their work, or even possible retaliation from animal rights activists.. Science is not a string of groundbreaking discoveries communicated through press releases, tweets, and hurried mass emails. Rather, it is incremental, nuanced, and often contradictory. It is defined as much by its methods and their limitations as it is by its breakthroughs. For science communication to work, it has to embrace this complexity, bringing the scientific method, and its baggage, to the foreground.. In ...
Animal welfare groups in Britain say they are outraged by a school fundraising contest that involves placing ferrets down the trousers of competitors.
A slaughterhouse or abattoir /ˈæbətwɑːr/ ( listen) is a facility where animals are slaughtered for consumption as food. Slaughterhouses supply meat which then becomes the responsibility of the packaging department. Slaughterhouses that process meat not intended for human consumption are sometimes referred to as knackers yards or knackeries, used for animals that are not fit for consumption or can no longer work on a farm such as work horses that can no longer work. Slaughtering animals on a large scale poses significant logistical problems, animal welfare problems, public health requirements, and environmental problems. Due to public aversion in many cultures, determining where to build slaughterhouses is also troubling. Animal welfare and animal rights groups frequently raise concerns about the methods of transport, preparation, herding, and killing within some slaughterhouses under the example of animal rights activists such as Howard Lyman and Ric OBarry. Until modern times, the ...
Steven Wise apparently has a new book out, Though the Heavens May Fall. The book is ostensibly about an 18th century British court case that helped turn the tide against slavery in that country, and of course you can probably imagine the sort of lesson that Wise wants us to take from that (if you cant, its that such a similar case could turn the tide toward animal rights).. As animal rights activists go, Wise is relatively harmless. He has a complex model - widely criticized by other activists - that would grant certain species legal rights based upon how likely they are to have the sort of sense of self that human beings have. Its overly complex and unworkable in this writers opinion, but at least Wise doesnt run around naked or make statements that killing those he disagrees with is not such a bad idea.. But he also used an argument that is simply stupid, unconvincing, and a bit out-of-character given Wises legalists arguments. He gave a speech at the University of Michigan in February in ...
What is worse? Eight little swans supposedly chasing away game species or industrial sprawl eating away habitat? Vermonts wildlife management agency has done nothing about development in the very same area. A wonderful article appeared in the Vermont Times, on July 30, 1997 by reporter Gretchen Fryling. It was about the game agencies obsession to manipulate animal populations. Mute swans are not considered native wildlife although theyve been here over 100 years. They seem to have no definition or protection at all under any law. Normally, an animal that successfully establishes itself in an area is considered naturalized. That means that, even though the species did not evolve in that territory, it has now found its niche and is successful in maintaining its population in the region. Naturalized and native species are normally considered on the same ecological footing. If we were to remove all naturalized plant and animal species from the continent, there would be very little flora ...
Ms. Chaitowitzs story is very sad. I do not know the presentation of her breast cancer; so I do not know how much additional benefit she would have derived from her chemotherapy in terms of increasing her odds of survival, had she not suffered her complication; it could vary from a few percent absolute benefit to much more. However, in general, the benefits of chemotherapy outweigh the risks, even in early stage breast cancer, where the benefits are relatively small on an absolute scale. Unfortunately, individual patients are not statistics. For example, when I counsel patients on the risk of a wound infection after surgery, I will often say something like, The risk is around 2%, but if it happens to you its 100%, and you wont be reassured that you are in a small minority of patients. The same applies to Ms. Chaitowitzs case, but even more dramatically. Myelodysplastic syndrome is a known, albeit uncommon, complication of chemotherapy and radiation (around 0.3-0.7% risk in most recent ...

After college I became open to the sacred writings of people around the globe and found that there were common themes that could only be explained by events which happened in the theatre of the sky. This led me into all of the sciences. One can only get an accurate view of the total picture by looking at it from every angle with an open mind. I now am an avid animal rights activist and believe human rights, animal rights, and environmentalism should all go hand in hand. After spending most of my 20s and 30s in sunny Southern California I returned to the NW and now reside in Washington state.. ...
Outside of Parasite, the major categories went largely as expected. Renee Zellweger won best actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy, and Joaquin Phoenix won best actor for Joker.. The best supporting actor and actress also went to frontrunners Brad Pitt for Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, while Laura Dern took best supporting actress for Marriage Story.. Phoenix, who won his first-ever Oscar for his work as the unstable Arthur Fleck on his way to becoming Joker, gave perhaps the most impassioned speech of the night, talking at length about his belief and hope that people everywhere can come together for common cause.. I see commonality whether were talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or animal rights, said Phoenix, who is well-known as an animal rights activist and vegan. When we use love and compassion as our guiding principals we can create, develop and implement systems of change.. When we help each other to grow, when we guide each other ...

Compassion for animals is one of the highest human virtues. It happens only through the dedication of individuals. Compassion and government are mutually exclusive concepts. The HSUS endorsement of Obama is but the tip of the iceberg. Consider that his primary political mentor, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, has been the major proponent of anti-dog-owner animal rights legislation in Congress. Durbin is the sponsor of the current PUPS legislation that would extend the heavy arm of federal bureaucracy into most kennels in America, and also was the author of the failed amendment to the Pet Animal Welfare Act that was attached to the 2008 Farm Bill. Obamas main allies in Congress read like a Whos Who of radical animal rights activism: defeated Sen. Rick Santorum (author of the failed PAWS legislation three years ago), Sen. Diane Feinstein, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Sen. Ted Kennedy and several others. Obamas running mate, Sen. Joe Biden,consistently gets 100% HSUS ratings. The Obama ticket is an ...
There is no denying the fact that the testing of chemicals, drugs, cosmetics, and consumer products on animals and using animals for scientific experimentation is indeed wrong and cruel. No amount of scientific development justifies extending a cruel treatment to speechless and innocent animals and animal testing is something that is utterly inhumane and detestable. The reality is that the issue of animal testing happens to accrue a highly emotive and polarized response from our society because varied sections of the society tend to evince conflicting attitudes towards animal testing. Many people who consider themself to be the upholders of scientific research do support animal testing as they believe that animal testing is something that is essential for the progress and propagation of science in society. Such people also believe that allowing animal testing is something that is in the interest of human progress and there is nothing wrong with animal testing. There are other people who oppose ...

Derrida made a number of fragmentary comments about womens rights a few years before he looked more directly at the appeal to animal rights. He mentioned that the woman has sometimes shared the inferior status of the animal. However, his interest in the way in which the declaration of rights can sometimes dovetail with subordination - a point he did make in reflecting on animal rights - was quarantined from the remarks on womens rights. In the late nineteenth century, Frances Power Cobbe was thinking of a socio-political context when she pointed out that men, in their treatment of women, seemed to have granted themselves immunities, (sometimes legally upheld, sometimes de facto exceptions) from laws that would more generally apply to the treatment of other humans, or to domestic animals such as horses and dogs. Meaning immunity in the sense of exception, Cobbe also appealed to another idea - that one might now liken to auto-immunity - that this immunity was poisonous and auto-destructive. ...
Hughes writes that I have asserted that the project was a form of eugenics and cultural imperialism. The first thing I would want to be very clear about is that there is no such project in existence and so I dont think it IS anything at all, strictly speaking. The only actually-existing Project to which Hughes essay refers here is The Great Ape Project, and I happen to so approve of the Great Ape Project that readers of Amor Mundi will find a link to it in my blogroll, indeed will find that it is something to which I have drawn the attention of my students in many courses that touch on questions of nonhuman animal rights or environmental justice. That should come as no surprise to anybody who knows that I have been an ethical vegetarian for nearly twenty years, have written and taught extensively on animal rights questions, and so on. I wouldnt want anybody mistakenly to think I disdain the actually-existing and actually-important work of the Great Ape Project as a form of eugenics and ...
On Monday night The Guggenheim announced it will be pulling three artworks from its upcoming exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theatre of the World. The news was announced after the pieces came under fire last week when activists labeled them as instances of unmistakable cruelty against animals in the the name of art. This statement was delivered via a petition on which currently has the support of nearly 750,000 people.. The artworks concerned, previewed on The New York Times, featured two videos of live animals and a sculpture that included live insects and lizards. In one of the videos, artists Peng Yu and Sun Yuan tether four pairs of American pit bulls to eight wooden treadmills for a live exhibit. The dogs are riled up and attempt to attack each other but are held back by harnesses causing them to grow increasingly weary. Although these works have been exhibited in museums in Asia, Europe, and the United States, the Guggenheim regrets that explicit and repeated threats of ...

Mad Cowboy Essay, Research Paper ?Even if animal testing produced the cure for Aids, we?d be against it? This rhetoric notion was stated by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and summarizes the fanatical doctrine animal rights activists preach to their followings. These activists preach a doctrine of hate calling for the end of all meat eating, wearing of fur, use of animals in experiments regardless if they are beneficial or not, and even push for the end of all pets as we know of it.

This essay examines the current trend of rustling and transporting cattle from throughout India for trade at the cattle corridors that lie along the border between Indias West Bengal and Bangladesh. An analysis of historical and cultural factors seeks to explain how this trade possibly began and increased. These motivators include the effects of the Mad Cow disease outbreak in the 1980s on international beef trade and the many economic uses for bovines and their by-products in Bangladesh. This research also looks at cattle-specific legislation in India that prohibits many of the practices employed by smugglers and details some possible examples of this process as cited from newspaper reports varying from Indian and British sources to other international newspapers. Finally, the efforts of various animal rights and Hindu activists are noted. Themes of the work encompass the distinct religious contrasts between Hinduism and Islam, local and global demand for goods derived from cattle, and how these
In Australia, animal rights advocates say the conditions of the voyage amount to extreme cruelty to the animals. If such measures had been taken when recommended, those poor animals would be out of their misery by now -- instead, they are still trapped on that death ship in extreme temperatures, extreme humidity and surrounded by a sea of their own excrement. In Jidda, Saudi Arabia refused to accept the animals Aug. 22 after a government inspector claimed that too many had scabby mouth, a virus that makes the sheep less attractive but doesnt affect the quality of their meat. [...] the Australian government and animal activists reject that theory, suggesting instead that the debacle was the result of a Saudi business deal gone awry. According to Wirth, other Saudis wanted to scuttle the deal because they could get a better price from Somalia and Ethiopia. In Iraq, plans for British troops to distribute the sheep fell apart when authorities concluded that the occupation force didnt have the
Yes, it was an accident: an accident that would not have happened if those responsible had shown a little forethought and respect for the animal -- not to mention concern for the safety of the people downtown (camels can be absolutely vicious, and those long legs can kick a long way.) I have lived on farms for most of my life and am no animal rights activist, but it burns me up to see people treating an animal so callously, and then minimizing it by claiming it was an accident -- as though the camel had been struck by lightning instead of hurt because it was taken into a place it did not belong, by people who should have known better, for no better reason than the entertainment of a bunch of effete hipster fools. ...
Marius the giraffe is pictured in Copenhagen Zoo February 7, 2014. The Copenhagen Zoo went ahead with a plan to shoot and dismember a healthy giraffe on Sunday and feed the 18-month-old animals carcass to lions - an action the zoo said was in line with anti-inbreeding rules meant to ensure a healthy giraffe population. The giraffe, named Marius, was shot in the head and then cut apart in view of children, according to a video of the incident released by the Denmark-based production company Localize. The zoos plans had sparked an outcry from animal rights activists. A British zoo had offered to give Marius a home and even started an online petition to save the giraffe, gathering more than 25,000 signatures. Picture taken February 7, 2014.

With Rockets owner Leslie Alexander announcing his first investment in China, a lease in the World City of Beijing development, and an advertising sponsorship with World City in Toyota Center, he was not the first member of the organization benefiting from the Yao Ming connection. Chuck Hayes (Li Ning) and Shane Battier (Peak) endorse Chinese basketball shoes. World City is the fifth company (of 22) with camera visible signage in Toyota Center. Battier had a 72-hour visit to Beijing before training camp and has a commercial that runs in China with a tour planned for next summer. Rockets owner Leslie Alexander laughed at the reports that his ex-wife Nanci Alexander, an avid animal rights activist, played a part in the NBA move to a synthetic basketball. Tracy McGradys concussion on Saturday might have knocked out some of his memory, but it brought back unhappy memories for Rockets forward Shane Battier. On Wednesday, the Rockets set or matched their season highs for points (118), first-quarter
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - Bio Corp., an Alexandria company that provides specimens for dissection in classrooms, was charged with 25 counts of animal cruelty after a hidden-camera video was produced by the animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.. The misdemeanor charges, filed by the Alexandria City Attorneys Office on Dec. 29, accuse the company of drowning five pigeons and injecting 20 live crayfish with latex dye in order to kill them. Under state law, its a crime to willfully instigate or in any way further any act of cruelty to any animal or animals.. PETA wanted to investigate how animal specimens are prepared and it focused on Bio Corp. when a job opened up there. A PETA activist landed the job and shot the video.. Each of the 25 charges is punishable by up to 90 days behind bars and a fine of up to $1,000.. Ben Hedstrom, owner of the company, said hes being unfairly singled out.. The city didnt have to prosecute this, he said. Its a one-sided ...
The carcasses of 40 tiger cubs were found at Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, a Buddhist site widely known as the Tiger Temple, in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Credit Dario Pignatelli BANGKOK - The Thai wildlife authorities found 40 dead tiger cubs in a freezer on Wednesday at the Tiger Temple, a controversial tourist attraction in western Thailand, and were investigating whether the carcasses were evidence of the temples involvement in the illegal wildlife trade.. The discovery came as Thai wildlife rangers were removing adult tigers from the temple in an effort to shut down the attraction after receiving complaints that the temple was trafficking in endangered species.. The temple, a Buddhist monastery that offered paying tourists close contact with tigers, has long been accused by conservationists and animal rights activists of exploiting and abusing the animals, accusations the temple has denied.. Wildlife officials said that only one of the dead cubs found on Wednesday had been reported to the government ...
On one covert video, farm workers illegally burn the ankles of Tennessee walking horses with chemicals. Another captures workers in Wyoming punching and kicking pigs and flinging piglets into the air. And at one of the countrys largest egg suppliers, a video shows hens caged alongside rotting bird corpses, while workers burn and snap off the beaks of young chicks.. Each video - all shot in the last two years by undercover animal rights activists - drew a swift response: Federal prosecutors in Tennessee charged the horse trainer and other workers, who have pleaded guilty, with violating the Horse Protection Act. Local authorities in Wyoming charged nine farm employees with cruelty to animals. And the egg supplier, which operates in Iowa and other states, lost one of its biggest customers, McDonalds, which said the video played a part in its decision.. But a dozen or so state legislatures have had a different reaction: They proposed or enacted bills that would make it illegal to covertly ...

I like your use of the phrase low-key anti-zoo because I feel like it sums up the feelings of a vast majority of people sort of 40 and under (although my favorite is I dont believe in zoos. Its a zoo, not fucking Narnia). I think the zoos are bad mentality has become part of our cultural consciousness, something that we absorb as truth in our childhood or adolescence and then never question as adults who are capable of informing our own opinions. I dont blame people for having low-key anti-zoo feelings, though. Zoos in America were terrible places until not too long ago, and I feel like the Animal Rights movement did great things in bringing animal welfare into the public eye. Unfortunately, I feel like the majority of people who tell me they dont believe in zoos generally dont know why they have those feelings. They can point to one or two broader topics like, wild animals should be wild or animals arent meant to be entertainment, but they usually cant clarify beyond those ...

Bonnie Steinbock (born 1947) is a professor emerita of philosophy at the University at Albany and a specialist in bioethics who has written on topics such as abortion, end of life issues, and (in one article) animal rights. Questions from her examinations have appeared in the Education Life section of the New York Times. Steinbock received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. She is a fellow of the Hastings Center, an independent bioethics research institution. She now lives in Oakland, CA, with her husband, Paul Menzel. Bonnie Steinbock is the author of Life Before Birth, published by Oxford University Press in 1992. As stated in the subtitle, the book discusses the moral and legal status of embryos and fetuses. Chapter One goes into detail about the interest view, the idea that all and only beings who have interests have moral status. The interest view is used to distinguish whose interests we are required to take into consideration. Besides the interest view, ...
1. Humane euthanasia. Swine producers are seeking a non-physical manner in which to humanely euthanize piglets. ARS researchers in West Lafayette, IN have found that a unique combination of gases are able to anesthetize piglets prior to euthanasia with a second more harmful gas to allow for humane euthanasia. Development of this technique for on-farm use will allow pigs to be humanely euthanized. It will also decrease the use of physical techniques of piglet euthanasia which are often criticized by animal rights groups and often found to be objectionable to perform by farm workers. 2. Osteoporosis in laying hens. Currently, most laying hens are housed in conventional cages in the United States, which limits their movement and ability to perform natural behavior, such as roosting, which can cause osteoporosis (a progressive decrease in mineralized structural bone). Osteoporosis causes 20 to 35% of all mortalities in caged White Leghorn hens. Reducing or eliminating osteoporosis associated with ...

Thursday, April 7, 2011. Fair Chase. By Duane Fronek. I see this little phrase come up from time to time. What Im about to write might infuriate some and please others and leave others thinking about where they stand on this little phrase. My thoughts on the phrase Fair Chase in a nutshell is basically, has got to be the most dangerous word to outdoor men and women and our pursuits in the wild when it comes to hunting, trapping and fishing. The phrase in my opinion is probably the most responsible for hunting, trapping and fishing rights lost over the years, pitting one outdoorsmen and women against another. Simply put fair chase is basically not just a phrase but an attitude and a tool to justify ones way of doing things, while sacrificing those of another. We see it all the time when issues come up such as the use of cross bows, high fence, hunting with hounds, trapping and the list goes on.

Rhode Island, California, and Louisiana legislatures are considering laws to create animal abuse registries to keep track of citizens convicted of animal cruelty and abuse.. Similar to systems currently used to keep track of sex offenders, those convicted of violating animal rights laws would have to register personal information with local law enforcement and the information would be publicly accessible.. According to the DVM 360, an online veterinary newspaper, the registries being considered in California and Rhode Island would define an animal abuser as anyone over the age of 18 convicted of a felony animal abuse offense. Louisiana would require registration for any animal abuse conviction at all ages.. The laws would require registrants to list their personal information, employers name and location, the date and details of their animal abuse offense, said DVM. Law enforcement authorities will have a varied number of days, according to each state, to enter the abusers information in to ...

However, the good burghers of Oikokola insisted on tucking in, and shared the meat with villagers from neighbouring Onepandaulo.. The result was 55 Oikokola residents and 13 fellow sufferers from Onepandaulo rapidly needing medical treatment. Some were tended at the local medical centre, while more serious cases required hospitalisation.. Happily, local councillor Bernadinus Shekutamba Shikongo said many of the people have since recovered, while the director of health of the Oshana Region, Dr Naftali Hamata, duly warned against eating dog meat and the carcass of any sick animal.. AP notes that dog meat is considered a delicacy in Northern Namibia, and people continue to enjoy its delights, despite animal rights campaigners objections. ®. ...
The show follows the work of Dr. Tracy, his daughter Paula (Cheryl Miller), and his staff, who frequently protect animals from poachers and local officials. Tracys pets, a cross-eyed lion named Clarence and a chimpanzee named Judy, were also popular characters.. Daktari was based upon the 1965 film Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion, which also stars Thompson as Dr. Tracy and Miller as his daughter. The concept was developed by producer Ivan Tors, inspired by the work of Dr. Antonie Marinus Harthoorn and his wife Sue at their animal orphanage in Nairobi.[1] Dr. Harthoorn was a tireless campaigner for animal rights, and with his research team developed the capture gun,[2] used to sedate animals to capture them without injury.. On the series, Clarence did not do all his own stunts; he also had a stand-in. Leo, another Ralph Helfer-trained lion, doubled for Clarence whenever any trucks were involved, since Clarence spooked at the sight of these vehicles. Leo even had his own makeup artist who applied ...
The Labour Party, Greenpeace, Animal Rights and The Grasshopper Council of GB demonstrate in front of the squirrels house. The BBC, interrupting a cultural festival special from Notting Hill with breaking news, broadcasts a multicultural choir singing We Shall Overcome. Ken Livingstone rants in an interview with Trevor McDonald that the squirrel got rich off the backs of grasshoppers, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the squirrel to make him pay his fair share and increases the charge for squirrels to enter inner London. In response to pressure from the media, the Government drafts the Economic Equity and Grasshopper Anti-Discrimination Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The squirrels taxes are reassessed ...

DOWNTOWN — An animal rights organization camped in front of a local sporting goods store Thursday to protest the use of animal products in clothing and camping equipment.. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) set up a sleep in outside REI on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Fourth Street to tell shoppers and passersby to not buy products that include down, which is the soft inner layer of bird feathers.. Members from the organization were dressed up in pajamas and sat up in sleeping bags. They carried signs that said Down Hurts and Don’t Cuddle with Cruelty; Ditch Down. The pajama-wearing protesters were accompanied by a half-plucked goose mascot.. PETA has recently been focusing on the down industry, said PETA campaigns manager Katie Arth.. Arth also commented that some people already have decided to never wear fur or leather, but down is a different story.. They don’t know about the cruelty that goes on to fill jackets, comforters, and coats, ...
What put you on the plant-based path?. There are so many solid reasons to become vegetarian - eating lower on the food chain to solve the spectre of mass starvation (Frances Moore Lappés reason in Diet for a Small Planet), health reasons in avoiding animal products (well-explained by my friend and Green Deputy leader Georges Laraque who is ahead of me and fully vegan), concern for the greenhouse gases emitted in meat production and concern for animal rights.. My own reasons seem childish in retrospect, but on the other hand, I was a child when, 48 years ago, I decided to stop eating meat.. I grew up on a wonderful 7-acre property, with wetland and forest and space for a hobby farm. We had ponies and a donkey and chickens, and then sheep.. I was eight years old when I had pet lambs. Without even thinking about it, I realized I could no longer eat lamb. I can remember feeling guilty patting a cows velvety nose and realizing I was still happy to eat burgers.. The decision to stop eating any meat ...
If you thought the only drawbacks of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were that they cause your children to demand toys, whack each other with sticks and talk like surfers who have been in the sun too long, you`ve been deluding yourself. The muscle-bound little reptiles, I regret to inform you, have a political agenda, which is the same color as their shells: green. Not content with entertaining children, the Turtles want to indoctrinate them in environmentalist dogma and put them to work spreading it. Their book, ``ABC`s for a Better Planet,`` is a catechism of green theology, instructing kids in the True Word on everything from acid rain to animal rights and urging them to use this unleavened knowledge to become pests. ``Write to your government leaders at every level,`` it urges. ``Don`t buy or use products that hurt the environment. Get your folks and friends to do the same.``

Author(s): Lewis, Jeffrey C.; Sallee, Kevin L.; Golightly, Richard T., Jr.; Jurek, Ronald M. | Abstract: Since the late 1800s, non-native red foxes have been introduced in California for fur farming and fox hunting. Dispersal, population growth, and extensive translocations by humans have aided the expansion of the nonnative fox population throughout many of the lowland and coastal areas of the state. Since the 1980s, non-native red foxes have been recognized as predators of a number of endangered species. Trapping and euthanizing non-native red foxes have been used as methods to protect these endangered species, but have been opposed by some members of the public. Opposition by animal rights groups to red fox trapping and euthanization has significantly influenced the management actions and policies of wildlife agencies. Red foxes are among the wildlife species commonly recognized in our culture; however, their historical use as a commodity and a game animal, and their impact on several endangered
