Excellent recap of what’s going on around Madison regarding the use of monkeys in cruel experiments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison .
The owner of a Richland County animal shelter who was convicted of six counts of animal cruelty was sentenced Thursday. Jennifer Petkus, who owned Thyme & Sage Ranch, was sentenced to three years of probation with no jail time.
For over four years, AFA volunteer and activist extraordinaire Ann Emerson has spent most Saturdays at Madison’s farmers’ market on Capitol Square. Ann visits with shoppers, talks about what is going on behind closed doors at the UW Primate Center, and manages to convert some of the most skeptical passers by. This summer we are thrilled to increase our presence with the addition of the Simply Vegan and Elephants Living Free campaigners.
So whether your interest is antivivisection, veganism, or animals in entertainment, you’ll be sure to be enlightened by stopping by our table this summer. We would love to have you join us!
The next Petland protest in Janesville will be Sat, May 7, from 11:00 to 1:00. Hopefully the weather will be beautiful. We need all of you to come stand with us. Janesville has recently opened another pet store inside the Janesville Mall. It is more important now than ever to show Janesville and the world that we don’t want stores that make profit from abusing animals. So mark your calendars.
MAY 7 Janesville Petland (in front of Target (2017 Humes Rd).) 11:00 to 1:00

I’m Vegan is a documentary web series that features vegans from all walks of life. Produced, directed, and filmed by Eric Prescott, Spencer Campo, and Matthew Goodwin, I’m Vegan addresses the myths and preconceptions of veganism by getting up close and personal with vegans from around north America.
The latest video features Gary Francione, Distinguished Professor of Law and Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Scholar of Law and Philosophy at Rutgers University School of Law-Newark.
Love him or hate him (there doesn’t seem to be a middle ground with Francione), this video is worth the watch.
