Horrible People Keeping Tiger as Pet

I came across this gem this morning: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2159103/Meet-couple-share-South-African-home-27-stone-Bengal-tiger.html These horrible people, Michael Jamison and Jackie Smit, are keeping a Bengal tiger as a pet. The tiger’s name is Enzo. The headline for the article reads, “He’s just a big pussycat”. No, he’s a fucking tiger, and how is anyone even allowed to have a tiger as […]

Cougar Hunt Debate in Alberta

(Edited to add that I am a vegan and against killing any animals. My purpose in writing this was to ridicule it and the people interviewed because not a damn one of them cares about animals.) Reading this article was an exercise in frustration:  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/cougar-hunt-alberta-1.4476780 Apparently, in Alberta (that’s in Canada), up to 155 cougars can […]

Plant-based foods to become more popular in 2018

Heh. Good news, I guess. According to an article on Huffpost, plant-based eating is a trend that will get stronger this year. Here’s the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2018/01/09/food-trends-2018_a_23327293/?utm_campaign=canada_newsletter I wish VEGANISM was getting more popular. According to the Huffpost article, “Veganism and plant-based eating continue to become more popular, for example, even for people who don’t avoid […]

More geese in the news

This time, the headline reads “Memorial Planned for Dartmouth Geese Killed This Week” (http://www.metronews.ca/news/halifax/2017/08/11/memorial-planned-for-dartmouth-geese-killed-this-week.html) Unlike the Canada geese I posted about recently, these geese are not considered pests. In fact, the people in the area seem to cherish them as pets. So since three of these geese were hit by a car and two of […]

Canada geese murdered in Washington Park, corpses fed to homeless and children.

Wow. Here is a horrifying news story: “Canada Geese from Washington Park Made Into Meals for Homeless Shelters” (http://globalnews.ca/news/3647922/canadian-geese-meat-washington-homeless-shelter/?utm_source=Article&utm_medium=MostPopular&utm_campaign=2014) And it’s not just the homeless who get to dine on the corpses of these murdered animals. Their “meat” also went to rehabilitation and after school programs. The article says the geese were “euthanized”—interesting, as I […]

Science is just an opinion

There are people in this world who act as though science is merely a matter of opinion, and as we all know, everyone has one of those! Apparently, Rhodes Scholars and Google scholars are equal and their opinions are granted equal weight. I experienced this disturbing phenomenon yesterday on Facebook. I should have seen it […]

Bomb-detection dog Grizz shot and killed in New Zealand

A bomb-detection dog named Grizz who got spooked at Auckland airport and took off was shot and killed after people spent three hours trying to catch him. Here is a link to the article:  http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/uproar-as-bomb-detection-dog-grizz-shot-dead-on-tarmac-at-auckland-airport/ar-BByeuD6?li=AAggFp5&ocid=mailsignout This has apparently sparked a big debate–why shoot and kill the dog?  Those who support Grizz’s murder say that human […]
