Identify, Boycott Tourism-Driven Businesses that Support Western Australia Shark Cull

ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) has reported that a fatal shark attack on Saturday claimed the life of a man who was spearfishing in waters off Yorke Peninsula, in South Australia. The incident — a measure of karmic retribution, I’d like to think — should be viewed as an example of an extremely rare occurrence […]

A state-sponsored shark cull in Western Australia claimed its first victim on Sunday. According to a report in The Australian, “a commercial fisherman hired by the Barnett government pulled a 3m female tiger shark from the waters off Meelup Beach. As the animal thrashed about in the water in apparent agony, it was shot four times […]

Western Australia Shark Cull Reminds Us Which is the Most Dangerous of All Species

Yesterday, protesters in Western Australia and across the country gathered on the moral high ground to voice their horrified outrage at a formally declared War on Sharks that will continue at least through April.

A prisoner hell-bent on securing her freedom was executed last week after breaking out of a Mexican death camp. As the Yuma Sun (Yuma, Ariz.) reported, the inmate jumped a fence at the city-run extermination camp in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico, and killed a local man, before law-enforcement officials gunned her down.

Raw Evil Captured in Footage from Festival of Sacrifice

On Friday, I watched the video included above, not because I wanted to, obviously, but out of some sense of obligation. Perhaps that’s a projection on my part, inasmuch as I wish those who typically choose to look away from such horrors would, just once, stare them in the face, however sickening and heartbreaking doing […]

Whole Foods Should Tell Consumers How Much Turkeys Enjoy Being “Humanely” Slaughtered

I was recently made aware of an insulting marketing campaign designed to make consumers feel really good about buying “humanely” raised turkeys. The propaganda was presented in an e-mail whose subject line reads: “Get to know your turkey at Whole Foods Market.” That sounds like something Dahmer might’ve said, I thought, replacing the word “turkey,” […]

“The bull-fighter … has merely demonstrated that he is a butcher with balletic tendencies.” — Brigid Brophy, “The Rights of Animals,” Sunday Times (London), Oct. 10, 1965.
