It’s Animal News You Can Use from Paul Shapiro! Yay, Paul! Yay, animals!
Pork magazine started a column this week off by lamenting, “Sadly, the list of companies announcing they will force their pork suppliers to move away from sow gestation stalls continues to grow longer.” Since last week’s email, both Brinker and Bruegger’s Bagels added themselves to that list.

Huffington Post has a great profile this week on HSUS’s litigation efforts, with animal law professor David Wolfson noting of HSUS’s attorneys, “They are generally extremely disciplined, focused and professional. I would also characterize them as extremely pragmatic and realistic.”
On the other end of the spectrum, BEEF magazine has a couple good stories about HSUS this week. One warns factory farmers, “HSUS has made it clear – oppose us and you will pay a price.” Another notes, “HSUS has the motive, the money and the momentum. What are we going to do to defend ourselves?”
P.S. Video of the week: Walter the wild crow adopts a human family. Seriously must-watch.
