    LET me be absolutely clear - there is no defence for Kurt Zouma’s actions. I, like anyone who watched the video that circulated this week, was shocked by what I saw. 4Kurt Zouma was exposed this week 4The Frenchman kicks his pet catCredit: Supplied collect Kurt’s behaviour in no way reflected the standards and values that we hold dear at West Ham United – and of course those of our pet-loving nation. Our stance on this as a Club has been clear from the very outset - we unreservedly condemn his actions and would never condone any form of cruelty towards animals. We have acted swiftly to fine him the maximum amount available to us. Every single penny of the fine handed down to him will be given to animal welfare charities. Kurt accepted this sanction immediately without reservation and was in full agreement that the funds be donated to ensure some good is done. We believe this is absolutely the right thing to do and the Club is already in direct contact with a number of...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Legendary actress and comedian Betty White would have turned 100 years old on Monday. When she died in late December, the “Golden Girls” star was remembered not just for her groundbreaking career, but also for being an animal lover and activist. “The Betty White Challenge” took off on social media. It encourages people to donate $5 to animal shelters and animal rescues in honor of the late actress. Local animal shelters in the Boston area are feeling the love. “Even if it’s $5, and we’ve seen that come in all the way to $100 or more, but you know, the money adds up,” Baypath Human Society of Hopkinton Executive Director Elizabeth Jefferis told WBZ-TV last week. “We can get a rabies vaccine for $5, or a microchip.” MSPCA-Angell has seen thousands of dollars in donations roll in recently. Help support the cause that was near and dear to Betty White’s heart by donating at https://t.co/1Zuz3eyF18. Your gift will go toward the care and feeding of thousands of animals in our care! ???? ???? — MSPCA-Angell (@MspcaAngell) January...
    Getty Alex Bowman waves to fans at Richmond Raceway. Hendrick Motorsports driver Alex Bowman is in the midst of a career year, locking up three wins and a two-year contract extension. He has also spent a considerable amount of time providing crucial financial support to animal shelters around the country. Ally Financial, Bowman’s primary sponsor in the NASCAR Cup Series, has pledged to donate $1,000 to Best Friends Animal Society-affiliated shelters in race markets during the 2021 season. Bowman matches the donations to increase the amount of money helping out the animals. Additionally, the sponsor donates $10,000 to a local shelter every time that Bowman reaches Victory Lane in the No. 48 Ally Racing Chevrolet Camaro. Bowman has won three races during the 2021 season. He first reached Victory Lane at Richmond Raceway on April 18 before adding wins at Dover International Speedway (May 16) and Pocono Raceway (June 26). These results provided another $30,000 to animal shelters. “It’s been awesome,” Bowman told Heavy during an interview on Tuesday, Sept. 14. “Working with Ally has been so much...

    A pet owner was taking her emotional support pig for a walk with her friend when they were accosted by a furious 'Karen' who had a meltdown over the size of the animal and his feces.   Reddit user u/InternationalPen2224 posted a video of the confrontation on the 'Public Freakout' forum three weeks ago with the caption: 'When you have physical beef with a big pig.'   In the three-minute video, the outraged stranger marches up to the pet owner and her pal while the pig — named Chorizo — sniffs at a tree, much like a dog would before going to the bathroom.  Stranger danger: A pet owner was walking her emotional support pig when she was harassed by an outraged 'Karen' who had a meltdown over the animal being in a park  'Yeah, I want to know why you have a pig in the middle of a park,' the woman demands, prompting the pet owner's friend to step in.   'We're on a walk.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received a letter earlier this week advocating for the ban of fur sales throughout the United Kingdom. Signed by Ricky Gervais, Leona Lewis, and 50 other celebrities and influential figures, the letter builds on 2020 polling that 72% of British citizens would support a full ban on fur sales, and 93% say they oppose the fur trade at its core. This comes after several outbreaks of COVID-19 on mink farms throughout Europe, and an increased public awareness surrounding the suffering and cruelty that mink, foxes, rabbits, and other animals endure on fur farms.  “Britain prides itself on being a nation of animal lovers, and that’s why we banned fur farming two decades ago – because it is unspeakably cruel and utterly devoid of respect for animals,” the letter begins. “Subjecting foxes, mink, raccoon dogs and other animals to the endless monotony of life in a tiny, barren metal cage, only to be gassed or electrocuted to death for frivolous fashion, is totally unacceptable. Subjecting coyotes and other wild animals to the agony and prolonged distress...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The search continues for the men who attacked a woman outside a Harlem liquor store, and now, the community is showing their support for the victim. A demonstration in front of the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. state office building lasted about an hour Saturday, and when it wrapped up, those rallying began marching down 125th Street.

    BRONZEVILLE — Community organizers demonstrated outside Chicago Police headquarters Thursday night to criticize Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the police department over the 2019 botched raid of Anjanette Young’s home. Members of Black Lives Matter Chicago, GoodKids MadCity, the Women’s All Points Bulletin and other community groups praised Young for publicly sharing her story and pledged to continue organizing to demand everyone involved in the incident be investigated and held accountable. They also called for an end to raids inside homes, criminal charges and discipline for anyone involved in incorrect raids, and quicker release of records to people who have been targeted. “To my dismay, I’m at this police station again to say sorry, to another Black woman, Anjanette Young, for how the city and the city’s political officials have failed you and failed us,” said Jalen Kobayashi, an organizer with GoodKids MadCity. Jitu Brown, board president of the Kenwood Oakland Community Association, said the indignities Young suffered — her home being wrongfully raided, and her being handcuffed, naked and filmed via police body-worn camera — never would have...
    The U.S. government has ruled that emotional support animals will no longer be considered service animals on flights in a decision that could earn airlines an extra $60million a year.  The Transportation Department issued a final rule on the Air Carrier Access Act Wednesday after years of tension between airlines and passengers who bring their pets on board for free by saying they need them for emotional support.   For years, the Transportation Department required airlines to allow animals with passengers who had a doctor's note saying they needed the animal for emotional support.  Yet, airlines believed passengers abused the rule to bring a menagerie of animals on board including cats, ducks, turkeys, pigs, pandas, kangaroos and in one case, a peacock.  In August 2019, miniature horses were even added to the list of service animals allowed to travel on domestic flights under new guidelines provided by the federal government.  The U.S. government has ruled that emotional support animals will no longer be considered service animals on flights. Several pigs have also been used as emotional support animals...
