First, did you know that Robin Quivers is a keynote speaker at the upcoming Taking Action for Animals conference in DC (June 27-30)? Register now; I hope to see you there!

In a major, hard-to-overstate-the-importance ruling this week, the World Trade Organization found that preventing animal cruelty can be a justifiable reason to limit trade in certain products. The implications for animal welfare legislation around the globe are enormous.

Speaking of the legal system, the battery egg producers responsible for the country’s largest egg recall were just charged with federal felonies stemming from that incident.

Finally, Nickelodeon star Daniella Monet is the latest celeb to join with HSUS to promote Meatless Monday to students. You can see some news coverage and watch her awesome new quick video.
