Back from my long trip and eager to catch up on some animal news. Because we’ve had a rough couple of days only good news today:
- Guy with nine senior rescue dogs, one pig, and assorted others plus good photo chops steals Internet (and your heart). Photo from Steve Greig’s Instagram.
- Armani goes fur-free.
- More investors putting their money where their (vegan) mouth is. New Crop Capital, dedicated to “invest exclusively in plant and culture-based alternatives to animal agriculture, as well as technology platforms that make plant-based eating easier” announces a new $25 million fund.
- SeaWorld is phasing out all killer whale (orca) shows and also captive breeding of orcas. It’s also adding vegan options to its menu and going 100% cage-free eggs and gestation-crate-free pork.
I’ll post something separate on that last one shortly. In the meantime, any fauna related news on your end? I’m learning just how hard it is to sneak meds into the food of someone whose nose is 10,000 times more sensitive than mine.
Also, how the heck does Greig get all those dogs to pose? He must have one hell of a squeaky toy…
