In Australia’s Capital Territory, dogs must be walked at least once a day by law. As another horse dies at the deadly Santa Anita track, it’s well past time to ban horse racing in California. Finding pet-friendly housing is a challenge in Idaho and elsewhere, but there’s a solution. The death of Bean is a missed lesson in empathy, kindness, caring, compassion, love, and duty. “Shocking euthanasia rates in Kalamazoo” puts the lie to the claim that Michigan is a No Kill state. Trinidad, Rio Blanco County, and Teller County, CO, report placement rates above 95% and as high as 100%. And finally, the announcement by McDonald’s that it is test marketing a veggie burger means that virtually all major fast food outlets look set to have plant-based options now or in the near future.

In case you missed it:

And finally, McDonald’s is test marketing a veggie burger in Ontario before (hopefully) rolling it out nationally there and then South of the border here in the States. With McDonald’s entry, virtually all major fast food outlets look set to have plant-based options now or in the near future, including Burger King, Carl’s Jr., KFC, Del Taco, Taco Bell, Red Robin, Bareburger, White Castle, Chipotle, Habit Burger, Shake Shack, Qdoba, and more. The one holdout appears to be Wendy’s. The loss will be theirs. As KFC noted when it test marketed “Kentucky fried plant-based chicken,” people have been demanding it from fast food restaurants and those restaurants “have been happy to oblige, and pleased with the results.” Make it easy for people to do the right thing and they will.
