Virginia state dotted with historic towns, scenic byways ... and horrible puppy mills. A five-month, undercover investigation by The HSUS revealed a substantial Virginia puppy mill industry that is largely unregulated and often in violation of state and federal laws. From large-scale operations with hundreds of dogs living in seemingly endless rows of cages; to small, crowded kennels in trailers, backyards and even basements across Virginia; hundreds of commercial breeders are mass-producing dogs with little or no oversight and few�if any�safeguards for the health and well-being of the animals. HSUS investigators visited puppy mills of all sizes, as well as pet stores and Virginia-based websites selling dogs. Their discoveries were staggering. Commercial dog breeders in Virginia number nearly 1,000. And many of these operations churn out puppies in the most deplorable conditions imaginable

BY STEPHANIE STOUFFER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy Dog fighting. On your cell phone. It’s called Dog Wars -- a new Android app that has the Humane Society of the United States, animal rights activists and Michael Vick speaking out against it. Los Angeles CW-affiliate KTLA explains -- the app teaches users how to train fighting dogs. “That company is Kage Games that created the controversial app in which players can feed and train their pitbulls, even inject them with steroids -- all to create a stone-cold killer dog.” Michael Vick -- who served 21 months in prison after getting busted for dog fighting -- is supporting HSUS in trying to get the app pulled from the Android Market. Vick said in a statement... “I’ve come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street. Now, I am on the right side of this issue, and I think it’s important to send the smart message to kids, and not glorify this form of animal cruelty, even in an Android app.” Anchors for San Francisco’s CBS affiliate question the motives of the developers despite a statement from the company saying the app was made with good intentions. REPORTER: “They say the app is a satire and they’re hoping to educate people on the real-life horrors of dog fighting. They even say that from the very beginning they wanted to give money to certain animal rights groups.” ANCHOR: “Ok, you made contact with these people -- do you buy that? Are you buying their explanation, or are they just embarrassed now and got caught with this thing?” REPORTER: “I don’t think that they are coming out saying anything they don’t believe in. I think this is the very beginning of it, they haven’t even marketed it yet. So we’ll see where they go from here on out and see if they actually do give money to animal rights groups.” ANCHOR: “Alright... laughing... Keep us updated.” But a public policy specialist for the Independence Institute in Colorado says there is nothing illegal about creating the app. “The inventors of the game have their First Amendment freedom of speech rights to make the game and distribute it anyway they want with any company who will help them distribute it. And the people who criticize the game have the same right to criticize it just as much as they want and to urge Google not to distribute it.” Petitioning Google is exactly what people are doing -- there are more than 1,000 signatures on an online petition and several pages on Facebook protesting the app. Google has yet to comment on whether the game will stay in the Android Market.

Hundreds of thousands of baby seals are clubbed and shot to death annually for their fur. This practice is not without profound ramifications for the animals. In 2001, an independent veterinary panel studied Canada's commercial seal hunt. They concluded that the seal hunt results in considerable and unacceptable suffering. They noted that in 42 percent of the seals examined there was not enough evidence of cranial injury to even guarantee unconsciousness at the time of skinning. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) called for a boycott of Canadian seafood and it is working. The European Union looks set to ban seal products too. Now is the time to join the campaign and end this dreadful kill once and for all. "America's Next Top Model" judge and world-renowned photographer Nigel Barker received special recognition from the HSUS for his dedication to the cause. Barker chronicled his trip with the ProtectSeals team in Canada through photographs and a documentary film, providing an intimate look at the lives of baby harp seals targeted by the annual kill.

Canadian Seal Killers & DFO have a lot to hide from the world. Canadian Sealers passed a LAW that stops YOU from getting pictures of their crimes against nature.

They absorb handouts from the government and Decrease your pay check. Fishermen sit at home most of the year, only working a couple months of the year and the rest they get paid UI which means YOU have to work, and they sit and collect money. - Vote seal hunt supporters out of Parliament. - Write to newspapers, bring up the subject, post notices, make your voice heard. === TO ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE of the WORLD: - Post about this in your blog, copy the text about it and forward it, tell people, anywhere you can. - Write, call or phone your country's government officials, and tell them to reaffirm the Laws against these killers. - Boycott RED LOBSTER.

Seal beaters justify atrocities by attempting to say it obtains them money, or it's their livelihood, or that it puts food on the table, so the horrors they commit should be perpetuated. This is False. Just because something is done to obtain money, does not make it right. There are those who exploit children forcing them into prostitution for money. That's their livelihood too, but that does not mean it is right. Drug Pushers seed communities and entice youths with heroin and methamphetamines, that is the livelihood that provides money for some in certain poor communities, yet this does not mean it should be praised as such a fine livelyhood. Dogfighters ply their abhorrent trade to earn money, scammers defraud the elderly and get funds that put food on grifters tables, yet this does not excuse it. Poachers using snare traps to kill animals and massacre them for their horns and their ivory tusks to sell pieces of their bodies for money probably feeds poor poachers and their associates, however this excuse does not suffice to a judge to avoid prison. Not too long ago, white plantation owners used blacks as slaves on cotton farms and used them to earn money for the white owners and pay their bills, and provide food for their families, and even bring in money to provide jobs for white farm-hands, and even probably provided a significan amount of commerce as part of the economy, and possibly these men complained that telling them not to exploit the free labor obtained from african slaves would hurt their livelihoods, and take food out of the poor white plantation-owners children, yet today we now know this is wrong, and we do not stand for this today. Just because some act provides spoils of money, income, furnishes the perpetrator food, or homes, or cars, or his clothes, does not suffice to justtify crimes against humanity and nature. And with all this said, the seal hunt does not even earn significan money at all. The seal hunt is a Financial LOSS to the nation. It costs more than it bring in. 30 million Canadian people get their paychecks docked so that 0.00015 of the population of a tiny horde of lobbyists Sealers which are a Special Interest group can obtain less then 350 bucks, less than anyone could earn at even something akin to a yard sale. And Sealers already have 2 jobs. They already earn tens of thousands of dollars as Fishermen. Sealing is 2ndary. And also the govt already pays fishermen welfare UI checks which it gives Sealer Fishermen for sitting at home, while it is not fishing or sealing season. Thus, Sealers already earn tens of thousands. Sealing is Not their only job. Seal hunting does NOT bring significant income, it earned sealers in 2009 less than 18 cents an hour. 29 bucks. in a whole month. Avt per sealer of 350 bucks compared to tens of thousands they already are earning doing fishing. And they already obtain govt payment checks every month. So if you ever see anyone attempt to say that it is their livelihood, or earns a "significant income" or is needed in order to put food on the table, this is now shown False and the individual who attempted to say it is now discredited. This argument cannot be used ever again. If anyone such as a seal beater supporter tries it, they will now be exposed.

Approximately 60 dogs and other animals were rescued from atrocious conditions in Sequatchie County, Tennessee. The animals, many in need of urgent veterinary care, were living in absolute filth. Upon arriving at the property, the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Department served a warrant and found a variety of medium and large mix-breed dogs living in cages throughout the house and outside, all covered in feces and trash. Initial veterinary findings include urine scalding, emaciation, dehydration, anemia, and feces crusted feet and coats. Rescuers found multiple deceased dogs in a freezer on the property. The Humane Society of the United States worked alongside local authorities and partners to remove all of the animals from the property. All of the animals are being safely transported to HSUS Emergency Placement Partners where they will be thoroughly examined by teams of veterinarians and receive any necessary medical treatment.
