“I often see pictures of smiling pigs or cows on meat store signs or packages of hamburger. They’re smiling even though they’re about to be eaten. Some are even in chef hats holding frying pans, as though they’re ready to cook something. But the chef and the meal are one in the same. Try to imagine humans in the same situation. See how easy it is to see what’s wrong with this picture?” Mori Chack
"Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility."
Everyone, meet Oogy. He was about ten weeks old and only weighed twenty pounds when he was tied to a stake and used as bait for a Pitbull. The left side of his face, including most of his ear, was torn off. He was bitten so hard that a piece of his lower jaw was crushed. Afterwards, he was thrown into a cage and left alone to bleed to death.
If you all have the time to reblog pointless hipster photos, then you will have time to reblog this out of respect for Oogy.
Sharks are beautiful, awesome, majestic, hardly agressive and actually quite friendly animals. They are also EXTREMELY vital to the world’s environment and humans murder them and sometimes leave them at sea to die after cutting off their fins.
Please help reblog, and after that, help stopping this if you can!
"Here’s another question I have. How come when it’s us, it’s an abortion, and when it’s a chicken, it’s an omelette? Are we so much better than chickens all of a sudden? When did this happen; that we passed chickens in goodness? Name six ways we’re better than chickens… See, nobody can do it! You know why? ‘Cause chickens are decent people. You don’t see chickens hanging around in drug gangs, do you? No. You don’t see a chicken strapping some guy into a chair and hooking up his nuts to a car battery, do you?… When’s the last chicken you heard about came home from work and beat the shit out of his hen, huh? Doesn’t happen… ‘cause chickens are decent people."
Elephant orphans form intense bonds with their caregivers and vice versa. “It’s not for the wages,” explains one veteran keeper. “The more you’re with them, the more you satisfy yourself. You just love them.”
