ALF - Animal Liberation Front "The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) carries out direct action against animal abuse in the form of rescuing animals and causing financial loss to animal exploiters, usually through the damage and destruction of property"
ALF FAQs "There is one real glimmer of hope amid the mechanised carnage. Within the next hundred years or so, and possibly sooner, biotechnology will enable the human species cost-effectively to mass-produce edible cellular protein, and indeed all forms of food, of a flavour and texture indistinguishable from, or tastier than, the sanitised animal products we now eat. As our palates become satisfied by other means, the moral arguments for animal rights will start to seem overwhelmingly compelling. The Western(ised) planetary elite will finally start to award the sentient fellow creatures we torture and kill a moral status akin to human infants and toddlers. Veganism, though not in quite the contemporary sense, will become the global norm"

Canned Hunts "...they violate the generally accepted standards of the hunting community, which are based on the concept of "fair chase." In some cases animals may be shot in cages or within fenced enclosures; in others they may be shot over feeding stations; some of the animals are tame and have little fear of humans, while others may be tied to a stake or drugged before they are shot

A GUIDE FOR THE COUCH POTATO ACTIVIST Every year in the U.S., an estimated 20 million animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, and chimpanzees are confined in tiny cages without the ability to move while they are burned, dismembered, or poisoned usually without anesthesia. More than 134 million animals who live in the wild are shot or trapped and killed for "sport." More than 9 BILLION animals are slaughtered for food and leather. Approximately 5 to 10 million cats and dogs are killed each year because too few suitable homes are available. If these numbers outrage you and the thought of each animal's suffering inspires you to make a difference, here are suggestions of some easy things you can do to help the animals

Infrared also allows us to study how well feathers, fur and blubber insulate animals.
