Some may just see some food in a funny pose.

Others see a decapitated animal in a gruesome photo.

The president of PETA is the latter.

She's very upset with The New York Times for posting a photo of a raw chicken posed in a mock promiscuous position.

About the photo, she said:

Robert Redford Says Save The Fish

Robert Redford Says "Save The Salmon"

Fishy…

Robert Redford is speaking out against the Pebble Mine, a huge copper and gold deposit poised for development in southwest Alaska, which also hosts the world's last and best wild salmon streams.

Redford posted a blog entry Thursday morning saying he's not against mining but is against "putting mega-mines where they don't belong."

He also is speaking out in a New York Times advertisement paid for by the Natural Resources Defense Council asking mining companies Rio Tinto and Anglo American to leave Bristol Bay alone.

Redford describes Pebble as a disaster-in-the making. But the mining companies maintain they can develop the mine responsibly and without harming fish.

Bradley Cooper Shows Big Love For His Dog

Filed under: Bradley CooperPetsDogAwwwww

Bradley Honors His Dog

LOVES IT!

Bradley Cooper once said his dogs are his kids.

Clearly a huge animal lover, Cooper adopted his beloved dog Samson, a German shorthaired pointer, from a kill shelter's Web site just three weeks before he was going to be euthanized.

Sadly, Samson passed away last year and Cooper had a beautifully enormous portrait honoring Samson hung in his Pacific Palisades home (Charlotte is resting under the table). How fantastic is this portrait?! LOVE IT!

Now, to complete the look, he just has to find a lady to share the cozy spot under the photo. Brad says potential girlfriends must love his dogs too.

"She has to like my dogs. My dogs and I come in a package."

His recent ex Renée Zellweger was often spotted walking Charlotte.

Red-Tailed Hawk Collides With New York Times Building

Filed under: BirdsWildlife

For once, news came straight from the source…literally.

A red-tailed hawk injured himself after colliding with the glass windows of the New York Times building in Manhattan yesterday.

Poor guy!

Onlookers were kept at bay, until an expert falconer took it off to Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation, in Massapequa, on Long Island.

A wildlife rehabilitator there said that the hawk, a male born 7 or 8 months ago, had an injured wing that might be broken, but a surgeon may be able to fix it.

We hope so!

Apparently, they have had this problem before and birds love to crash into the windows of the 5-story attrium attached to the New York Times building.

Glenn Phillips, executive director of NYC Audubon, said:

“Collisions at the atrium of The New York Times Building are a problem that we’ve been working with building management to find solutions. Birds are drawn, they see the trees, they land, forage in the atrium, and then they try to leave, and getting out is problematic. They don’t recognize the glass as a barrier and they try to fly through it to get out.”

Possible solutions to this problem include applying a film to the windows to make them more visible to birds, but whatever they do, we hope they figure something out soon so no more birds are injured as they navigate the concrete jungle.

We think it's safe to assume this bird incident is completely unrelated to all of the other birds falling out of the sky these days.

Unless

This hawk was on his way to the New York Times building to deliver an urgent message warning us of worse to come!

Okay, that's a stretch.
