"Honest Scarecrow" by Funny or Die. 

Several people suggested Vegansaurus might want to post that Chipotle scarecrow commercial. I was like…you’re cray. All my advertising friends were immediately taken with the vid and posting it all over fb and I was just like…you’re cray. How can anyone take this seriously? Sorry bros, Chipotle is not some caring, anti-big ag corporation. I like Chipotle, I won’t lie, but come on. Don’t be silly.

Then, finally, one of my ad peoples (Yay Pete Johnson! Speak the truth!) posted this Funny or Die parody. Please, let it knock some sense into the world. 

Buzzfeed presents!: Questions every vegan is tired of answering. Amen. Before someone gets all, “oh, nice, someone is asking an innocent question to learn more and you are being a stereotypical snobby vegan,” I’m not saying we’ll stop answering them, but we can still lament constantly being inundated with repetitive questions. We aren’t robots. Also, hey, omnivores: Google.

Neglected dog’s sweet rescue story is sweet!  »

Can’t see the video? Watch it on Vegansaurus.com!

Shew. Another Bill Foundation video. It’s a doozy! In this one, the dog is totally ready to be rescued. I mean, it’s just, how do they do it? Dogs are so amazing. This dog’s eyes look so sore yet she’s practically skipping around just to be outside! And she’s so sweet to everyone!

This one is especially tugging on my heartstrings (shut up, I totally have heartstrings) because besides the eyes, Carly looks a lot like Figaro did when I adopted him! She must be a Bichon-type too. What? You want to see Fig’s before and after? Well, ok!:

What a skinny-mini he was! But he didn’t have the painful-looking eye problem like Carly. On the other hand, he was a freaking wild animal once he finally got a few meals in him. Like running-around-like-a-bat-on-speed-jumping-up-biting-my-muffin-top-repeatedly-until-I-was-covered-in-bite-bruises-wild. Carly seems well-behaved. What a sweetie!

In conclusion: donate to the Bill Foundation!

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.

Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use  »

It’s Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use! Yay, Paul! Yay, animals!

This week, the National Conference of State Legislatures issued a letter opposing Iowa Rep. Steve King’s dangerously anti-animal amendment to the farm bill, writing that it “would preempt vital state agricultural policies designed to protect the safety and well being of our farmland, waterways, forests and most importantly, our constituents.”

Speaking of the King amendment, my mom already called her rep. and two senators about the King amendment. Did you? If not, you’d have to be dumber than a four-year-old! (Read on; it makes sense…)

And speaking of four-year-olds, are chickens smarter than them? Scientists think so. Check out this thought-provoking op-ed in today’s New York Daily News.

HSUS is suing the Raleigh Transit Authority for rejecting its anti-gestation crate ads. Want to see the ad and coverage of this suit? Read on!

And finally, new market research shows that more than a third of Americans are now eating meat alternatives, and the vast majority of those people are meat-reducers, not vegetarians.

P.S. Video the week: Cat dressed as shark riding robotic vacuum. Need I say more?

P.P.S. Screening dates announced for Speciesism: The Movie!

It’s Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use! Yay, Paul! Yay, animals!

Wow, what a big week!

After years of research funded by Google’s co-founder, the world’s first cultured meat taste-testing went down in London. The Today Show was one of hundreds of media outlets to cover the historic event. You can see HSUS’s supportive remarks for the slaughter-free meat, too. In addition to the massive potential for eliminating a huge amount of animal suffering, keep in mind that cultured meat uses 99 percent less land, 96 percent less water, 45 percent less energy, and produces 96 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional meat.

A researcher at the University of Minnesota also found this week that by dramatically reducing animal consumption, we could free up enough food for another 4 billion humans.

And on the legislative front, the fight against Iowa Rep. Steve King’s nefarious farm bill provision continues, with more than a third of House members now urging leadership to strip the provision. Have you contacted your lawmakers yet?! Animals need your help now more than ever.

Video of the week: Do you like it when farm animals hang out with dogs and cats?

Via our Laura at Jezebel, some really wonderful Chilean college students are calling attention to the plight of urban street dogs. Or at least call attention to the dogs themselves. Get your tissues out, it’s a weeper.
