California bans fur products
For a change something good to report from the US that California has moved to ban all fur products. The governor of the state has also signed a bill banning most animals from circuses except cats dogs and horses excluding rodeos. This is progress and must be seen as a forward step in protecting animals whose fur has traditionally been used in everything from clothing to furniture. We simply do not need to use real fur taken from an animal that has been killed for the purpose. What is wrong with faux fur anyway ? By 2023 it's official and heavy fines will apply to those breaking the law.
An ocean of waste strangling animals
Our garbage covers beaches and fills the oceans strangling the creatures that live in the sea. Everything from seals to turtles and whales. As if it wasn't bad enough that our waste is metres deep on land floating island of plastic rope and discarded fishing lines are responsible for countless animals dying slow painful deaths as they struggle to survive against the terrible weight around their necks cutting into their skins. Humanity should be ashamed.
