I am being forced to go to a Thanksgiving family dinner…
What kind of gluten free AND vegan meal can I bring?? Must also be coconut free. I’d like for it to somewhat be in the theme of Thanksgiving even though I’ll be the only one eating it. Ugh I just want to stay home and eat tofu tacos all day
Carriage Horse Dies in NYC Street.
Concerned New York residents are calling for an investigation after a carriage horse knelt down and died in the middle of a busy Manhattan street on Sunday.
En route the Central Park near 54th and 8th Ave, a large white horse used by the NYC carriage industry knelt down and died in the middle of the road. The law enforcement unit of the New York ASPCA is one of the groups calling for an investigation telling the New York Daily News, “The ASPCA has long believed that carriage horses were never meant to live and work in today’s urban setting.” A no brainier for anyone who knows anything about horses but still the industry persists.
Horses in the NYC carriage industry are forced to work nine hours a day in almost every weather condition. They spend their entire lives pounding sensitive hooves on hard pavement while they navigate some of the most reckless and dangerous traffic conditions. At the end of their lives, when they’ve been worked to exhaustion, many are sold to slaughterhouses where they are butchered and sold for meat.
Being carriage horse is no walk in the park. If they don’t die the streets, these gentle and caring horses are worked to the brink of death and slaughtered all in an effort to turn a quick buck for their owner. This poor horse’s death underscores the need for a ban on the industry.
Enough is enough, end the use of carriage horses now.

REBLOG IF YOU ARE AGAINST ANIMAL CAPTIVITY!
Bob’s Red Mill’s standing as a conscious and compassionate company is about to take a serious hit. The grain seller is donating $25 million to the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), an institution responsible for extensive animal testing.
Bob and Charlee Moore of Bob’s Red Mill have chosen to give OHSU this massive donation for “nutrition education” and “research on obesity and other diseases.” OHSU will not deny that the funds will be used to conduct animal experimentation or provide a special guarantee that these funds won’t be spent on animal testing.
OHSU is one of the most notorious animal testing schools in the world. According to whistleblowers, OHSU hires unqualified low-paid workers to conduct sloppy and unscientific experiments. Animals, like baby monkeys, are kept in cramped cages in standing water and bodily fluids where disease and sickness are rampant. All the experiments, including the most absurd ones, are done in the name of “health research.” A few years ago, OHSU famously spent close to $1 million terrorizing baby monkeys with Mr. Potato Head dolls as part of an obesity study.
When I heard Bob’s was donating to support OHSU I immediately contacted both parties. After several exchanges, neither party will deny that the funds will be spent on animal testing. Bob’s is avoiding discussing animal testing altogether and OHSU is defending their legacy of experimentation. Jim Newman from OHSU told me over e-mail that, “There are currently no other ways to obtain this info that assists both human and animal medicine.”
Bob’s Red Mill runs a serious risk by taking their customer’s money and giving it to a notorious animal tester. Their loyal customer base of animal lovers and vegans may boycott them if they choose to go through with the donation.
Bob’s Red Mill, WHY. I love your shit! What the hell am I going to eat for breakfast now??
NOOOO! Fuck. Go fuck yourself, Bob. You and your Red Mill. The red mill covered with the blood of the animals you’re hurting. I’m boycotting your sorry ass.
This is extremely disappointing. For shame, Bob. I hope this means that Whole Foods will stop selling the brand, due to their animal testing beliefs, if that’s even true.
UGH time to find another place to buy GF baking products.
ALSO he is super proud of his donation judging by his tweets/replies. So feel free to knock him down by posting a tweet talking about his decision!!
