Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use: Big week, and now a big weekend!  »

What a week!

CNN did a major feature on Compassion Over Killing’s new undercover investigation at a broiler chicken factory in North Carolina. You can watch CNN’s piece here — highly recommend.

Speaking of CNN, I was glad to be on CNN Headline News last night with the always wonderful Jane Velez-Mitchell discussing pig protection. If you want to meet Jane, she’ll be speaking at the Taking Action for Animals gala Saturday night in D.C.!

And on the pig protection front, my colleague Matt Prescott shares some good news about the impending demise of the gestation crate in this new column.

Of course, the meat industry’s not too pleased with our work, and is pushing for ag-gag bills to ban our whistleblowing exposés. Iowa Public TV ran a nice feature on the topic this week.

And now for a big weekend: More than 1,000 folks will be at the Taking Action for Animals conference … hope to hang with you there!

P.S. Video of the week: Just a puppy and piglet playing. No big deal.
