It’s another installment of Animal Legal Defense Fund’s 30 Second Animal Law! Today we learn “What laws protect animals who are raised for food?”

Per ALDF:

Did you ever see a video of horrific cruelty toward farmed animals and wonder, “Why is that legal?!” The sad truth is that there are no federal laws that govern the way farmed animals are raised. State laws are sorely lacking. So what can you do if the law can’t protect them?

By going vegan you remove your support for the cruel system under which 10 billion land animals are raised each year. A plant-based diet is healthy, delicious, and better for the environment as well.

Watch the entire series on YouTube, and get more info on “the legal vegan” from ALDF.

It’s another installment of ALDF’s 30 Second Animal Law! This time they’ve got David Kirby, author of Death at Seaworld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity, talking about how fucked up it is to keep killer whales in captivity. “Really incredibly fucked up and dangerous” is the answer. Just horrible.

Screenings of the documentary Blackfish, all about the violent, tragic life of poor Tilikum, especially focusing on the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau thre years ago, begin this month in the U.K. and in July in the U.S. Since there’s nothing we vegans love more than a scary and upsetting documentary about the ways humans mistreat animals, we suggest you take all your friends to see it as a summer treat. Stock up on ice cream and booze later to console them after all the rage-crying the film is sure to cause. Just watch the trailer!
