Forty beagles raised since birth in a pharmaceutical testing laboratory have been released and their first steps out into the real world were caught on tape.
Members of the Beagle Freedom Project brought the pups to LA hoping they would be able to find good homes. When the dogs arrived in the US, they were still in crates. In their whole lives, they were never allowed to experience physical contact with other dogs and had never been outside. They were denied the most basic aspects of life. Their first timid steps were all caught on tape:
This video kills me. To think that thousands, if not millions, of dogs just like these are in drug and cosmetic research labs all over the world. Hopefully this video will show people that it’s not just rats and mice in labs, but also the friendly family dog as well.
Popular UK grocery store chain Sainsbury’s is reporting that unconventional items like video games, DVDs, and whiskey are selling better than milk.
It used to be that milk was in such high demand that grocery stores would put the milk case at the very back of the store so customers would have to walk through the entire store to get to it. Now, with the introduction of some unconventional items to their inventory, Sainsbury may have to rearrange their shelves. Milk is no longer king of the grocery store.
Sainsbury’s is reporting that their top selling item a few weeks ago was the hit video game Call of Duty and the week after the Call of Duty trumped milk, whiskey took the top spot. To add insult to injury, Sainsbury predicts that more people will buy a copy of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows DVD than will by a carton of milk.
Shoppers buying whiskey, video games, and DVDs over milk? Sounds to me like people have their priorities straight.
Every Thanksgiving, millions of Americans chow down on turkey unaware that the bird on their table is most likely covered in feces.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regularly tests the health of the nation’s food supply and this latest survey has detected a significant amount of fecal matter on most of the turkey meat in the country. The CDC estimates that 9 out of 10 turkeys sitting on the dinner table this Thursday will be covered in fecal bacteria. A gross and dangerous prospect. Ingesting fecal matter can contribute to food poisoning and even urinary tract infections.
The CDC is also warning that supermarket turkeys can often contain drug-resistant MRSA, the superbug that has killed more people than AIDS.
Gives new meaning to the term “dark meat.”
Just in time for the holiday season, Clawson Dairy in the UK have realeased a limited edition cheese filled with real gold.
At just over $100 a slice, Clawson churned up gold cheese for their ”rich and famous” customers. In case you were wondering if you’d be getting your money’s worth, Clawson told the Daily Mail UK “You can see the gold clearly in the slices and we’ve not been shy with how much gold we’ve put in the batch.”
Sorry folks, even when you add a handful of gold flakes to cheese it still tastes like feet.
