Whatever your political beliefs, we know one thing. The people that President Trump has indicated he will appoint to key federal positions are no friends to animals. The U.S. president oversees the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. These agencies have sweeping powers over not just animals in the United States but all over the world.

Two of the men on Trump’s agricultural advisory committee are

The case of Kristin Lindsey, the Texas veterinarian who shot and killed a cat with a bow and arrow, came to a disappointing end this week.

There was a big win for dogs last week when a Pennsylvania court struck down regulations that weakened the state’s Dog Law. The lawsuit was the culmination of years of hard work by the Animal Legal Defense Fund, a national group dedicated to protecting animals using the legal system.

The 2008 Pennsylvania Dog Law increased care requirements in commercial kennels (the category under which puppy mills fall). The new law immediately empowered Pennsylvania authorities to shut

What do photographers and lawyers have in common? At first blush, not much. Photographers are artists, a profession we associate with bohemians and dreamers. Lawyers, on the other hand, tend not to be a group of people that we would classify as “free spirits.” Humorless vulture is a more apt description.
