    PCRM has called on the federal government to consider adding label to cheese products that would warn women about the risk of breast cancer. Doctors said hormones found in cow milk-based cheese could contribute to development of the disease. […]document highlights a study that found high-fat cheese products could increase breast cancer risk by 53 percent in women. PCRM aims to promote plant-based nutrition and lower consumption of animal products for better health. Up to 12,000 members agreed with the findings that cheese made from cow’s milk could be harmful. These potentially harmful hormones include IGF-1, which has been directly...
  • Estimates of bird collision mortality at wind facilities in the contiguous United States

    Abstract Wind energy has emerged as a promising alternative to fossil fuels, yet the impacts of wind facilities on wildlife remain unclear. Prior studies estimate between 10,000 and 573,000 fatal bird collisions with U.S. wind turbines annually; however, these studies do not differentiate between turbines with a monopole tower and those with a lattice tower, the former of which now comprise the vast majority of all U.S. wind turbines and the latter of which are largely being de-commissioned. We systematically derived an estimate of bird mortality for U.S. monopole turbines by applying inclusion criteria to compiled studies, identifying correlates of...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8/20/19 | Zachary Halaschak
    A billboard supported by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals went up in Baltimore that compares President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to a rat. The billboard alludes to Trump’s recent comments that Baltimore is a “rat and rodent infected mess,” and features a cartoon rat grasping a piece of cheese with the caption “poor guy just trying to survive” next to a cartoon of Kushner lounging on a stack of money with the caption “rich pest.” **SNIP** “Smart, social, resourceful rats who are just trying to eke out an existence suffer when entitled landlords neglect humane rodent-control measures,” PETA...

  • Animal rights group PETA asks Idaho city to rename Chicken Dinner Road

    CALDWELL, Idaho — Chicken Dinner Road is ruffling some feathers. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an animal rights organization, is requesting that the city of Caldwell, Idaho, rename the historical Chicken Dinner Road. In a letter sent to Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas, PETA condemned the name of the road, saying, “Chickens are intelligent, sensitive animals who feel pain and empathy and form strong bonds with one another, and they shouldn’t be considered ‘dinner.’” The request, apparently, has run afoul of the mayor. “First of all, it’s absolutely ridiculous — it just is,” Nancolas told the Idaho Press. “It’s...

    Chickens are friends for some people, dinner for others. Sometimes both. But one animal rights group feels that the name of a rural road in the Treasure Valley isn’t kind to poultry. PETA sent out a news release Wednesday morning alerting Idaho media that it has written a letter to Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas to ask for a change to the street name Chicken Dinner Road. However, Caldwell city street maps don’t include Chicken Dinner Road, which is located in rural Canyon County. ...
  • Hunter Who Went Viral for Killing Giraffe Has Message for Her Critics: He Tasted ‘Delicious’

    Tess Talley, an American trophy hunter who went viral in 2018 after posting a picture of a giraffe she’d killed, spoke out for the first time since the controversy in an interview with CBS aired this week. The image, which showed Talley posing next to a dead giraffe she’d bagged during a trip to South Africa in 2017, sparked widespread backlash. Talley spoke to “CBS This Morning” on Friday and revealed that the worldwide outcry hadn’t dulled her passion for hunting. “It’s a hobby, it’s something that I love to do,” she said and explained that the 2017 kill was...

    Let me just say from the start that I love animals, and I’m not just talking about the delicious ones. I drive my wife a little nuts by feeding the birds, squirrels, deer, rabbits, and pretty much anything else I know that wanders through our yard. But our kids love watching them and so do I. Plus, we have a bunch on the inside of the house, too. That being said, I have a lot of issues with so-called animal rights groups.I’m as disgusted as anyone with animal abuse. People who’d torture any sentient creature should have the same Hell...

    At first glance, a classified ad looking for puppies and kittens might not seem all that unusual. Until you see the poster is willing to pay by the pound. The stomach-turning ad, since removed, has been blocked by Castanet and the poster banned following this bizarre listing: "Looking to provide a loving humane organic home for unwanted cats and dogs. Will pay top prices per pound. Best quality of care and food provided. Free range of farm and home. Lots of love and attention. We are looking to use them as an ethical source of meat for our family.

    <p>The photograph, published last week in Pakistani newspapers, was stunning. It showed a magnificent mountain goat, with huge, symmetrically spiral horns, nestled on a rock and surrounded by breathtaking snowy mountains, with a man kneeling and smiling behind it.</p> <p>It took a few seconds to realize that the animal, a wild Astore markhor, was dead. The caption described the man as an American hunter who had paid a record $110,000 to shoot it on a tourist expedition to Pakistan’s northern Himalayan region of Gilgit-Baltistan.</p>

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is weighing in on the proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, claiming it would be “death-inducing” for a number of species. [Snip] PETA opposes a border wall because it spells certain death by starvation and thirst and the end of access to foraging and nesting ground—as well as blocking the migratory paths. [Snip] Even the conservative National Wildlife Federation called the wall "one of the biggest potential ecological disasters of our time." [Snip] "You think a bird's just going to fly over a wall, but that's not necessarily the case,"...
  • PETA activists protest Iditarod at Detroit auto show

    Moments after she began smashing the windows of a late-model Chrysler Town & Country minivan outside the 2019 Detroit auto show, police had the white, floppy-eared dog in handcuffs. In a move reminiscent of a “Scooby-Doo" episode, an officer lifted the costumed dog head -- after throwing her white-gloved paws to the glass-covered concrete -- revealing an animal rights activist beneath. The Detroit woman joined more than a dozen others, some from out of state, during a PETA protest of a Chrysler dealership outside the 2019 North American International Auto Show. The activists condemned the Alaska dealership’s sponsorship of the...
  • Why ban foie gras but not other meats rooted in animal cruelty?

    NY Post ^ | 2/4/19 | Steve Cuozzo
    No more foie gras in New York City because it’s cruel to force-feed ducks and geese to make their livers tastier? A bill introduced in the City Council by member Carlina Rivera, who represents lower Manhattan, would outlaw its sale, as The Post reported on Monday. But like many politically correct council brainstorms, it’s not really about humane treatment of animals. It’s a selective-outrage thumb in the eye, or the gullet, of the “rich.” Who eats foie gras except the rich? Many animals and sea creatures are brutalized before they’re brought to our tables. We ignore it because our lives...

    Vegan activists have been accused of ‘terrifying’ schoolchildren by ‘barbecuing’ a dog in the middle of a busy street in a protest against eating meat. The Peta protest – involving a prop dog – was designed to cause outrage and asked people: ‘If you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a lamb?’.
  • PETA vs. Tiffany Haddish. Get out the popcorn.

    As regular readers likely know, I’m generally a fan of any story that gets PETA up in arms. But in this case, I came to the headline in question needing a lot more information. It involves a report of a protest by a comedian named Tiffany Haddish. Despite the fact that I’m a big fan of standup comedy and watch plenty of comedians’ specials, I’d never heard of her. It turns out she’s been featured quite a bit and appeared in some movies I’d never seen, but I somehow missed her act up until now.This tale doesn’t have anything to...

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called on the University of Texas and the University of Georgia to end the use of live mascots after an incident before their Sugar Bowl matchup on Tuesday. Bevo, the Texas Longhorns' steer mascot, charged Uga, the Georgia Bulldogs' dog mascot, before the game, creating a brief moment of chaos for the people around the animals. The pre-game kerfuffle caught the attention of the animal rights organization. "It's indefensible to subject animals to the stress of being packed up, carted from state to state, and paraded in front of a stadium full...

    According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Popeyes is responsible for the slaughter of millions of chicken each year. PETA took aim at the popular food chain after they released an “Emotional Support Chicken” Tuesday to “provide a good-hearted laugh most need to get through stressful holiday air travel.” Travelers at Philadelphia International Airport can purchase their meal with the special “Emotional Support Chicken” carrier in Terminal C. “We know holiday travel can be frustrating, and there’s no better way to ease stress than with a box of delicious Popeyes fried chicken and a good laugh,” said...

    Subscribe to the Chicks! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you want to be vegan, be vegan. I don’t care. I only care if you’re the type of vegan who constantly feels the need to judge me and lecture me for eating meat and wearing leather boots. If you’re in my face, I’ll dial the vegan jokes to 11. (Actually, I’m always in the mood for a good vegan joke. They’re funny!) Actually, one of my friends is a vegan, so see? It’s actually possible for a meat eater and a vegan to be friends. However,...

An accompanying chart gives several examples of common terms that PETA has dubbed offensive to animals alongside handy replacement phrases.
