Several years ago, I had a friend named Apollo. He would struggle to his feet as soon as he saw me and carefully shuffle to my side. His little sounds of happiness filled the air as I scratched and petted him. He ignored virtually every other human, but he lit up when I was around. I wasn’t …

Several months ago, PETA’s Los Angeles office, the Bob Barker Building , hosted an unusual adoption event. There were no dogs or cats or even rabbits. This event was for the birds — literally. Nearly 100 hens — who had been rescued by Animal Place from an egg farm that was “depopulating” birds who were no longer productive — were in need …

I was driving down Route 404 in Delaware when I saw her: a little white chicken sitting just inches away from speeding cars, facing directly into oncoming traffic, her eyes wide open. I pulled over, gently gathered her up, wrapped her in a towel, and placed her on my lap. At first, she squawked in alarm, so …

According to writer Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the trials of motherhood make moms “the great vacationless class.” Although she may have been talking about the multitasking, Blackberry-wielding, van-driving, soccer mom variety, other animals show the same tireless dedication to their children. In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d shine the spotlight on some of the best moms …

Don’t Buy the ‘Free-Range’ Lie

Don’t Buy the ‘Free-Range’ Lie

There’s a local market near my house where I like to buy fruits and vegetables every Saturday morning. A small market, it has just the right amount of glorious tropical fruit and imported Korean persimmons for a hungry herbivore like me. But in between the rows of fresh flower bouquets and Himalayan rock salt lies a gruesome …

If You Wouldn’t Smoke a Cigarette, Then Don’t Eat an Egg

Would You Fry Your Friends?

Posted by at 12:54 PM | Permalink | Comments (11)


PETA once had a sticker that read, “Animals Are Friends, Not Food.” Kids would put it on packages of meat in the supermarket from time to time, and it was known to show up on animal-based dishes in mixed (vegetarian/carnivorous) households.

Now, a Northampton University study shows that cows are indeed friends?with each other. And that being separated from their friends …
