When I stopped eating animals more than 25 years ago, many vegan cookbooks (when you could even find them) were a little uninspiring. They often seemed to have one goal: convince meat-eaters that they could still enjoy their favorite carnivorous dishes, with a few substitutions. I like “fish” tacos and Philly cheesesteaks as much as […]

Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario, and his colleagues found that children with low intelligence are more likely to grow up to be racist […]

Lobsters languishing in the tank of the claw machine. The lobsters were surrendered to CAP from a Virginia Beach restaurant, where they were part of a claw machine game in which customers paid $3 to try to catch a lobster. The lobsters were liberated back into the ocean.

When did boiling animals alive become an acceptable summer pastime?

Happy cow at SASHA Farm Sanctuary.

Most Prime readers probably already know that there’s nothing animal- or eco-friendly about leather. Buying leather bags, belts, jackets, or wallets means subjecting cows and other animals to the horrors of factory farms and slaughterhouses.
