Have A Heart, Pay The Price? Activist Faces Jail Time For Helping Pigs In...

(ANIMAL ACTIVISM/FACTORY FARMING) In June 2015, animal activist Anita Krajnc stopped on the side of the road to help some slaughterhouse-bound pigs packed into a large trailer. The pigs were visibly overheated and dehydrated, so Krajnc did what any other humane individual would do in the situation and offered water to the thirsty animals. This ultimately resulted in a heated argument with the truck driver who proceeded to call the police and press charges. Now, Krajnc is being charged with criminal mischief and faces jail time or a fine of up to $5,000 for her compassion in action. The trial has gained widespread attention with many calling Krajnc's efforts heroic, while others say activists like herself are a nuisance and interfering with private property. But exactly how is it legal to torture animals and kill them, but it's illegal to give them water to relieve the animals' suffering? What are your thoughts?

Thank You, Global Animals! Louisiana Flood Donations At Work

(ACTIVISM/TAKE ACTION) In what's being described as the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy, recent catastrophic flooding in Louisiana damaged or destroyed as many as 70,000 homes, displacing thousands of residents and their pets. Rescue organizations across the nation are banding together in a race against time to help animals left behind in the disaster. So far more than 600 animals have been rescued, and groups are working hard to help these animals become healthy again and reunite pets with their families or find them new homes. Thanks to Global Animal donors like you, so far we've distributed over $1,200 to help animals affected by the floods. Funds are being dispersed between the Humane Society of Louisiana (HSL) and Companion Animal Alliance of Baton Rouge (CAABR) to assist with field rescue operations and sheltering services. -- Global Animal
