(ENDANGERED SPECIES) Animal advocates have filed a lawsuit forcing the federal government to protect endangered species. This move repeals recently imposed rules by the Trump administration that would put endangered species like manatees, bald eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bears at risk of extinction. Read on to learn more about how the Animal Legal Defense Fund is fighting for the protections of some of the most vulnerable species on the planet--in both the wild and in captivity.
(ANIMAL CRUELTY) Believe it or not, most animal cruelty isn't currently a federal crime. Thankfully the U.S. House of Representatives just unanimously passed a bill to change that. Under the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act, or PACT Act, animal cruelty--including crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impaling, and other bodily injury--will be a federal felony. Existing federal law only explicitly bans animal fighting, and solely criminalizes the act of filming and distributing video depicting animal cruelty. Violators could face up to seven years in prison under the new law. Do you think that's a fair sentence? -- Global Animal

(FACTORY FARMING) Made In Chelsea sisters Lucy and Tiffany Watson have teamed up with Humane Society International UK to expose the scary truth behind what's inside a number of Halloween treats. For instance, did you know many jelly sweets contain gelatine? This substance is made of boiled up bones, skin, ligaments, and tendons of factory farmed pigs and cows--many of whom suffer in horrific conditions, unable to see sunlight, breathe fresh air, or even fully extend their limbs. Not only is gelatine found in many big brands of sweets like Starburst and Altoids, but it can also be found in cosmetics, shampoos, candles, ice cream, yogurts, puddings, cakes, and sports drinks. -- Global Animal
