Many facilities operate almost continuously, giving dolphins little respite from streams of tourists. Their diets may be erratic because many facilities generate additional revenue by selling fish to tourists in order to feed dolphins. Assertive dolphins can grow obese, and less aggressive animals may go hungry.

Countless brave birds served and died with our Allied forces. They crossed battle lines and helped influence key battle decisions by delivering vital messages. These intelligent, gentle birds were the first recipients of the Dickin Medal - animals' Victoria Cross - for contributing to the rescue of thousands of human aviators.

A PETA has become a buzzword because it is not a one-issue organisation. We watch the news, jump on stories and interject animal welfare issues into everything that we possibly can, from fashion and science to dog homelessness and how pigs become pork pies.

Dairy Products: Essential to Good Health? Or The Cause of Disease?

How on earth can cow's milk be considered an essential part of our diet when its purpose is to feed calves until they are old enough to be weaned? How does it make any sense at all that people are supposed to have it? Just because we have been doing it for centuries does not mean it is rational or good for us; it just means it was an available food source at some point, and has since become an acceptable part of the human diet.

Despite what they say on their website, PETA is an evil organisation going against its' own ethos, using tactics such as graphic images and even targeting children through advertising to try and make people become grass eating vegans!

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) has upheld a ruling that allows the European Union to ban seal fur imports on moral grounds. Canada fought desperately to have the ban repealed, but the WTO affirmed that nations have the right to reject seal products which they find morally reprehensible.

Grand National Disgrace

The Grand National is - by design, no less - an accident waiting to happen. Forty horses compete for space on the 4.5mile course fraught with obstacles, jumps and dangerous terrain. Last year, only 17 horses - fewer than half - managed to reach the finishing post. And while the race organisers were quick to highlight an unusual absence of fatalities, they failed to mention that two horses were killed in the run-up to the event earlier that week. More than three dozen horses who might otherwise have been grazing and running in the fields have been killed at Aintree in the last 50 years.

A 2012 New York Times investigation has revealed that an average of 24 horses suffer fatal breakdowns at tracks across the US every week partly because of the misuse of drugs that keep injured horses running. Furthermore, 10,000 broken-down thoroughbreds are sent to slaughter every year.

Crufts: Worst in Show

The lack of genetic diversity caused by inbreeding greatly increases the likelihood that recessive genes, which cause debilitating afflictions, will be passed along to puppies. As a result, roughly one in four purebred dogs suffers from serious congenital defects, such as hypothyroidism, epilepsy, cataracts, allergies, heart disease and hip dysplasia - a disease that can lead to crippling, lameness and painful arthritis.

Celebrating Cruelty-Free Fashion at Mahiki

Meg Mathews | Posted 30.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Meg Mathews

The idea that fur is springing into fashion again is absurd, even though that's the line the fur trade has tried to sell to reporters for more than a decade. You may see more fur on the catwalk, but that's because fur is so cheap that furriers have resorted to paying designers to use it. Its presence on the catwalk does not reflect what people are wearing on the high street.
