Sad, Lonely Baby Dolphin Shows True Cruelty of Marine Parks (VIDEO)

In this sad video shot at the Loro Parque marine park in Spain, a baby dolphin repeatedly bobs up and down in the water and swims in circles after performing in a show and being left alone in small pool. Dolphins are one of the most intelligent and friendly creatures on earth, and this animal’s behavior is a clear sign of the psychological and emotional distress that is all too common at marine parks around the world. Due to their ability to jump and mimic human noises, dolphins are commonly forced into entertainment against their will. This video shows...

But despite experiencing these traumatic events, she’s happy and playful as ever — and has finally found a loving home. “A 5-year-old girl threw Celia from a two-story balcony to her sister, who was standing below — but she missed, and Celia landed on the ground and broke her leg,” PETA Associate Director of the Community Animal Project Emily Allen told Lady Freethinker.

Video – Rescued Racehorse Now Living the Life he Always Deserved

For most of his life, Charlie’s Quest —  now just known as Charlie — was forced to run around racetracks at top speed, despite suffering multiple bone fractures. Fortunately, rescuers from PETA played the perfect matchmaker in finding Charlie a home with recent widow Alyson Mahoney. Before the rescue, Charlie experienced agonizing pain for the majority of his seven-year life. PETA happened upon him during an expose on the racing industry’s practice of medicating injured horses to keep them racing (and keep them bringing in cash). “In the investigative video, an assistant trainer (Scott Blasi, assistant to Hall of Fame...

Animals are Still Suffering at ‘World’s Saddest Zoo’

A viral video released last March tells the tragic tale of Grandview Aquarium, a sad facility within a Chinese shopping mall that could more accurately be described as “the world’s saddest animal prison.” The video brought international attention to the plight of Pizza the polar bear, a clearly depressed creature confined to cramped, artificial quarters with no escape from the throngs of gawking tourists. Sadly, Pizza remains at Grandview despite global outcry. And the poor polar bear is not the only animal suffering at the hands of the aquarium, owned by the group Haichang Holdings. Beluga whales, arctic foxes, and...

He still needs weeks of care to regain his nourishment and strength. The video below shows the tragic story that, hopefully, will end in Pascal’s...

Chained Dog with Mange so Bad it was ‘Hot to the Touch’ Now Living the Good Life

Countless chained dogs die due to exposure and malnutrition, and fall prey to diseases and infections like mange every year. These neglected animals are no match for nature while chained and abandoned in filthy yards — especially when the heat of summer or the bitter cold of winter take hold. Most chained dogs’ stories don’t end well. And for Keane, the future looked grim. “Keane started life chained in the dirt-filled, junk-strewn yard of a breeder in a part of North Carolina where few laws protect animals and few officers enforce those that do exist,” PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien...

Adorable Slow Loris Has Teeth Ripped Out for Selfies

The nocturnal slow loris is adorable by any standards.  Their huge eyes and teddy bear good looks are an immediate attention-getter.  One look and you want to capture the moment in a picture that can be shared and revisited for a lifetime.  That reaction is exactly what Thailand animal abusers counted on to turn recently named Boris Loris from a happy wild animal to a money maker. Boris came to the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand after being found abandoned on a Thailand beach.  An initial examination indicated that Boris is one of many victims of the illegal use of wild animals...
