This dog was killed for an unnecessary dental experiment

Help Protect Dogs from Suffering

Dear Friend,

Can you imagine dogs sold by an unscrupulous animal dealer to a laboratory to endure painful procedures, and dying — all for the sake of an unnecessary experiment? That was the fate of dogs like Shy Guy who were sold to Georgia Regents University by a Class B animal dealer, subjected to cosmetic dentistry experiments, and then killed.

NPR Staff

Author Dana Goodyear has spent a lot of time dining with foodies who champion bugs as a meal. And horses. And brains. Whales. Leaves. Weeds. Ash. Hay. Even plain dirt.

Goodyear, a staff writer for The New Yorker, set out to document the outer bounds of the extreme food culture that has taken hold among American foodies.

SeaWorld whale that ‘killed’ three still being used to breed, former worker claims

By: James Fielding

THE killer whale that drowned SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau is allegedly still being used by the park’s bosses to breed.

A former SeaWorld worker, Sam Berg, who worked with the killer animal Tilikum, has accused the Orlando tourist attraction of putting lives at risk to make money.

Bull orca Tilikum, which weighs 12,000lb and is 23ft long, drowned 40-year-old Dawn after dragging her under the water during a show in 2010.

Tilikum had already been involved in two deaths, 20-year-old student Keltie Byrne who was working at Sealand of the Pacific in Canada in 1991 and Daniel Dukes, 27, eight years later at SeaWorld Orlando.

However, staff at the world-famous Florida park are said still to collect his sperm to inseminate females … – Published: Sun, November 17, 2013…
