Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use: the coolest dog in the world! »
Often pork comes to mind when people think about federal politicians, but there’s a new legislative caucus in Congress, one that probably wouldn’t mind directing a little more pork toward the poultry industry: The Congressional Chicken Caucus. Colman McCarthy has a great column in the National Catholic Register this week about it.
On the other end of the spectrum, HSUS worked with local lawmakers in Boca Raton to urge citizens to help protect their health and the planet by eating less meat.
Special props to Upworthy for promoting HSUS’s new, entertaining gestation crate video (yes, it’s really entertaining!), helping to push the video well past a million views.

P.S. Video of the week: I used to think I’d had the coolest dog on the planet. I now know I was wrong.
P.P.S. Photo of the week: Thanks to the Winnipeg Humane Society for hosting me this week—they have a very poignant gestation crate display.
