QuailVictory For Birds At Heart Of The City Farmers' Market, San Francisco

On May 1, Heart of the City Farmers’ Market in San Francisco, California announced that live bird sales will be banned starting May 27. This is a huge victory!

For over two years, activists led by LGBT Compassion have provided documentation that these live bird vendors were responsible for numerous violations of local, state and federal laws including several health code violations and close to 800 animal cruelty violations.

Every year, this ban will protect over 100,000 chickens, quail, and other small birds from the miserable and terrifying experience of being overcrowded in small cages, transported in extreme weather, shoved upside down into a paper bag, and butchered in backyards and kitchens in San Francisco.

BLM photoSpeak Up For Wyoming's Mustangs - Comment Deadline Is May 6

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on a plan to capture 90 percent of the wild horses living in the White Mountain and Little Colorado Herd Management Areas in Wyoming. The BLM wants to permanently remove 696 of the mustangs in a mid-July 2011 roundup, a time when the agency has admitted that "foals are smaller," "water requirements are greater," and horses "may become more easily dehydrated." Summer roundups last year resulted in dozens of deaths, including at least 15 caused by dehydration-related complications. Submit comments by May 6.
