Humans are amphibians - half spirit and half animal , 30/4/2008

Scientists around the world are researching or seeking the funds to research ways to produce meat in the laboratory-without killing any animals. In vitro meat production would use animal stem cells that would be placed in a medium to grow and reproduce. The result would mimic flesh and could be cooked and eaten. Some promising steps have been made toward this technology, but we're still several years away from having in vitro meat be available to the general public.
PETA is now stepping in and offering a $1 million reward to the first scientist to produce and bring to market in vitro meat... , 2/4/2008

After hearing from supporters in Russia who have seen Gucci boots made from seal fur for sale in that country, PETA is urging the Italian fashion house to banish all fur from its collections. By selling seal fur, Gucci is responsible for the horrors of the Canadian seal hunt that have repeatedly been documented on video .  Despite a public outcry across the globe, hunters in Canada massacre hundreds of thousands of seals every year in order to sell their skins and rake in profits. Sealers bludgeon seals with clubs and "hakapiks" (clubs with a metal hook on the end), drag conscious seals across ice floes with boat hooks, and toss dead and dying animals into heaps, leaving their carcasses to rot because there is no market for their meat...

During an October 2007 undercover investigation inside a South American slaughterhouse, PETA's investigators discovered that shocking abuse was taking place during the kosher slaughter of cattle. The slaughterhouse is located in Uruguay, a leading exporter of kosher meat to both the United States and Israel.

As shoppers prepare to fill their larders with seasonal fare, Animal Aid visited a randomly selected turkey farm: Torbay Turkeys in Devon . The scenes we witnessed and filmed were deeply disturbing.

Many of the birds were covered in muck and feather-pecked, and suffering from deformed feet and legs. Some were so ill that they were unable to raise themselves from the filthy floor...
