It seems the debate over the ownership of a monkey selfie has finally ended—a moment we never thought would come.
In what’s becoming a trend, the Trump administration is walking back another one of its controversial actions following extensive outrage from the public. This time, the USDA has begun reposting deleted documents to its publicly available database of inspection reports on facilities that use animals. But animal…
Or, to be more specific, that small, sculpted models of said Space Vikings stop being depicted as wearing fur. Or, to be even more specific, PETA UK have written to Games Workshop, makers of Warhammer 40,000 and its myriad table-top gaming models, asking them to cease depicting imagery of its myriad characters wearing…
Animal rights activists were appalled when they learned that a 15-pound, 100-year-old lobster was about to become someone’s dinner in Florida. So they organized to “rescue” it and deliver it to an aquarium in Maine. They even gave it a name: Larry.
One less entry on a resume that’s a thousand jobs long isn’t going to hurt her career, but a few days ago Mattel confirmed to the New York Post that it had stopped production of its SeaWorld-themed Barbie products as a result of concerns raised by environmental groups.
At the dawn of the world wide web, early adopters were scooping up domain names like crazy. Which led to quite a few battles over everything from MTV.com to McDonalds.com.
This is the most cynical, horrifying thing I've heard in ages. PETA has restarted a campaign to try and pretend there's some link between "autism and dairy products," in an attempt to scare people into going Vegan. Update: We have a response from PETA.
The city of Los Angeles approved a ban on the use of bullhooks, bats, pitchforks and other physical tools used by trainers to control exotic circus animals such as elephants.
A new DiY science kit, "Backyard Brains," teaches kids about neuroscience and biotech by helping them dissect cockroaches — and then use simple electronic components to control the bugs' brains and movements. Now PETA is protesting the kits, saying they are cruel.

Can a wild-captured orca whale be considered a "slave" under the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution, or be named as a plaintiff in a lawsuit arguing as much?
What do you think about when I say PETA? Animal rights. Celebrities posing naked. Vegetarian and vegan awareness. All great things, right? Sure. Too bad they're a bunch of reasonless rabblerousers that don't care about a human life.
To save the animals we must lie down naked with the animals. At least, uh, that's the gist of this PETA porn site news I've been chewing on today as I try and understand what it all means.
Boeing is working on a new flat plane that would be able to take off and land vertically using dozens of new pulse jets they call Pulse-Ejector-Thrust-Augmentors. Of course, these things were originally created by Nazis.
Instead of replacing the St. Louis Zoo's deceased polar bears with live ones, zoo officials put robots up in their place. This slightly-better-than-average yard display will surely be remembered as the humble beginning of the robot bear uprising.
I was surprised to learn that the CIA has had a long though not always fruitful relationship with the animal kingdom. In Spycraft, the authors describe many clever animal-assisted devices, from the dead-rat dead-drop pouch to the "acoustic kitty," a cat with a remote listening system embedded in its body. And what's…
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are putting their money where their mouths are with a million dollar contest to see who can grow edible, tasty chicken nugget meat in a lab by 2012. The prospect of lab-grown meat has a lot of promise, but has been around for years without much progress, probably…
PETA doesn't mind if you eat meat; they just want that meat to not be from a dead animal. The organization cares so much about this that they've offered up a $1 million prize to the first scientist that can create meat that's "sufficient to market in at least 10 U.S. states at a price that is competitive with…
