Filed under: Legal MattersPETAWhalesSea World

The USDA cited SeaWorld for violating the Animal Welfare Act!

Ever since the documentary Blackfish came out, all eyes have been on SeaWorld. And they're judging… hard.

Some of those judging eyes belong to the U.S. government!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture actually cited SeaWorld Orlando for violating the Animal Welfare Act!

SeaWorld can try and spin the press in their favor all they want, but the fact that they were using

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsSnow SportsDogRescue

Sochi locals are rushing to rescue as many stray dogs as possible before the government murders them!

It seems like things in Sochi just keep getting worse!!

We've all heard the horrors about the hotel rooms and how journalists are trying to make the best of the spartan conditions.

We also previously mentioned something far worse… they're killing thousands of stray dogs to clean up the city, making way for the Winter Games.

The government wants the dogs gone before

Prince William & Prince Charles On Their Way To Protect Animals! Royal Father & Son Make A Trip To Highlight Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Princes William and Charles wanna help stop the illegal wildlife trade!!

Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.

They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.

First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.

After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!

And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.

She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!

So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!

Sochi Kills Thousands Of Stray Dogs For Winter Olympics To "Clean Up The City!"

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsAnimal RightsDogRescueDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

Sochi kills thousands of stray dogs for Winter Olympics cause they're just awful.

This isn't the first time we've heard of a stray dog genocide happening in an Eastern European country.

Sadly, it probably won't be the last either.

Russia doesn't have the right idea about a lot of things generally when it comes to rights - both human and animals rights.

That's why the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are so controversial. Not only is the country not changing its ridiculous anti-gay laws, they're killing dogs.

Sochi officials announced they'd cull 2,000 strays cats and dogs in an effort to clean up the city.

People obviously flipped out and the city called it off, but unfortunately

Ricky Gervais is always more than willing to throw in his two cents.

Especially if the topic of discussion is related to animals, the environment or some combo of the two.

We previously mentioned that Western Australia had begun a government-sponsored, controversial shark culling program.

He tweeted:

Did Lea Michele's Letter Push NY's Governor To Crack Down On Puppy Mills??

Lea Michele introduces her new pooch named Pearl in a sexy photoshoot

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!

The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.

The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.

Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.

The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!

Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:

You decide what turkey gets pardoned by the President... but what happens to the other one??

Two turkeys, Caramel and Popcorn, are both fighting for their lives and a Presidential pardon!

Not only does each bird have a baseball card style list of stats, which you can see (below), you can even
