Does a University Need an Elephant?

Many universities have traditions, most of them are fun for all. But having an elephant walk for a university? Together with the advancement of knowledge the advancement of learning should be proven here. Let the students be creative and start a new tradition – without cruelty towards other beings.

“Despite learning of the cruelty and abuse endured by elephants who are exploited for publicity stunts, Texas A&M University is moving forward with plans to maintain its archaic tradition of hosting live elephants as part of its annual Elephant Walk, an event designed to pay homage to exiting seniors. Join PETA in urging Texas A&M to wake up to the age of compassion for others!

There is no excuse for an institution of higher education to be promoting cruelty, especially among this generation of compassionate and socially aware students. Speak up for exploited elephants TODAY and ask Texas A&M to be true to its core values by compassionately carrying on its tradition without the use of a live elephant.”

The Ugly Side of Beauty

Photo:PeTA

The European Union banned all testing on animals for cosmetics. People thought this was the beginning of the end to all animal testing. Sadly, with the opening of new markets, mostly those in China, it seems to be the end of this beginning. Several companies have gone back to torturing animals for beauty´s sake – and to make more money.

“There’s nothing beautiful about dripping chemicals into gentle rabbits’ eyes or rubbing substances onto their abraded skin—yet cosmetics companies such as Estée Lauder and Revlon are paying to have it done anyway.

After more than 20 years of operating cruelty-free, these companies are paying for archaic product tests that poison and kill rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and other animals, in order to sell their products in China. It’s a disappointing backslide into cruel testing policies—and one that Estée Lauder and Revlon made in secret, without informing their customers about the change.”

Another great story on how much you can do to save animals from being tortured by simply signing a petition and speaking up against something as unnecessary as rabbit hair in clothing.

“After receiving more than 100,000 e-mails from supporters of PETA and its international affiliates, U.K.-based retail giant French Connection announced that it has committed to banning the sale of all products made with angora wool. French Connection joins dozens of other companies—including Gap Inc., Lands’ End, QVC, and Express, Inc.—in banning angora. This just shows that, when the public speaks, even major corporations listen, so please ask J.Crew and Ralph Lauren to drop wool immediately.”

How To Choose Compassion Over Gluttony

Photo:HSI

Is it worth fighting for this one pig? Why make such a big deal about this one animal? Because this one pig stands for so many who are being sent off to slaughter. This one pig can open the eyes of many to show compassion towards a being who cannot escape his fatal fate without your help.

“As part of its Hog Wild Tire Sale event, Granite City Tire & Auto in Alexandria, Minnesota, is planning to send a pig to slaughter and give his or her flesh to the customer who can most closely guess the animal’s weight. Pigs are deeply intelligent, affectionate animals who feel pain and fear, just like the cats and dogs many of us share our homes with.

Granite City Tire & Auto ignored PETA’s request for the pig to be sent to a sanctuary instead of the slaughterhouse, so we’re urging local residents to make their voices heard and let Granite City Tire & Auto know that this barbaric sales ploy is appalling and will not be tolerated by the community.

Please contact Granite City Tire & Auto and urge the company to allow PETA to send the pig who is scheduled for slaughter to a sanctuary instead:

Let Granite City Tire & Auto know that you will not patronize a business that celebrates cruelty to animals and that you will ask your friends and family to refuse to do so as well.”

Please help this one pig, thank you!

Good News: Virgin America No Longer Supports Sea World

Thank you to all who spoke up for the animals at Sea World. The more voices there are, the more they will be heard and there is a chance of saving the lives of animals just by spreading the word.

“After hearing from PETA, Virgin America, the U.S.-based airline that serves several popular cities across North America, removed SeaWorld from its rewards program. Virgin America joins a growing number of travel companies, including Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and STA Travel, that have made the compassionate decision not to promote SeaWorld. However, Virgin Group—the conglomerate that formed Virgin America—is a separate company, which is why we still need to urge Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Group to stop promoting SeaWorld.”

Who Can Outrun Climate Change?

It is safe to answer “nobody” to this question. No matter how fast you can run, there is simply no chance to get away from climate change. This year is heading to a new world record for being the hottest year since the recording of temperatures. Here is another animal with no place to run:

“Pronghorn are known for being the fastest land mammals in North America.

But a pronghorn cannot outrun climate change, which is expected to greatly impact habitat in the western U.S. through worsened droughts and wildfires.

Right now, the Environmental Protection Agency is deciding whether or not to establish new pollution standards for the oil and gas industry that could help wildlife in the West.”

Do We Need More Than Six Wolves?

There still are several states in the United States where wolves live. This is actually quite surprising, since they nearly had been hunted down to extinction. Only a very few were left and, thanks to public awareness, the wolf population has grown again.

If you live in Michigan or know someone in Michigan, please let them know that there is a chance to save the lives of wolves in this state.

“On November 4, Michigan voters will decide whether wolves live or die.

In 1974, just six wolves remained in Michigan.

They had been hunted for bounties, poisoned and driven to the brink of extinction. Thankfully, at this critical moment, they were listed under the Endangered Species Act, and wolves were finally protected. It has taken nearly 40 years to restore the population.

But wolves are once again caught in the crosshairs. Recently stripped of their federal protections, state by state has opened fire on wolves.

We did not save the wolves from extinction just so the trophy hunters and fur trappers would have more of them to kill.”
