Ad agency BBDO and the SF SPCA have put out a really great anti-puppymill campaign, the second phase of which launched this week. They put a typical newspaper bin out on the street but the window of this bin displayed a video of puppies. Inside, people found a little newspaper dedicated to exposing puppymills. Here are some reactions:
Did anyone get a chance to see it out on the street?
PETA released a more disturbing video recently that I'm not embedding because I wasn't able to watch it out of fear for my sanity. But you can give it a go if you're up to it. It documents awful animal abuse that is a routine part of military training. Like, there's chainsaws.
A cow sent from a Cali dairy farm to a rendering (the grossest thing ever) facility tested positive for mad cow disease. Luckily, it never made it to anyone's table and apparently mad cow does not affect milk. If you didn't know, mad cow typically comes from feeding cows cow! Which is totally gross. Supposedly, it's from feeding them infected cow but I saw this special one time that was like, no, it's the feeding cows cow that's the problem. And they showed this one culture where the people actually eat their dead and some developed symptoms just like a cow with mad cow disease. This case, however, it doesn't seem they know how the cow likely contracted the illness. It was reportedly a "downer," which many think shouldn't be used for meat as a general practice. Go figure!
