Push Attorneys General to Charge BP With Criminal Cruelty to Animals
Ask the Attorney Generals in Louisiana, Alabama, Florida and Mississippi to charge BP with cruelty to animals. Tens of thousands of animals are suffering and dying painful and lingering deaths—and there is no end in sight.

Urge Congress to Support Animal Protection in the Safe Chemicals Act
In a move to better protect human health and the environment from toxic substances, Congress is currently considering legislation that would tighten regulations on chemicals used in industrial and consumer goods, and ultimately reduce and replace animal testing.
The Safe Chemicals Act of 2010 (S. 3209) is a small step in the right direction to end animal testing, but it stops short of actually requiring the use of available alternatives, the sharing of existing test data among companies in place of new testing, or sufficiently prioritizing the further development of advanced “21st century” testing approaches that could replace conventional animal tests.
Contact your two U.S. Senators to urge them to strengthen measures to reduce and replace animal testing in S. 3209, the Safe Chemicals Act.

Let TNT Know What You Think of Its Ringling Bros. Reality Show
Recently, cable station Turner Network Television (TNT) announced plans to air a reality show featuring Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The show will send TNT’s cameras inside the Ringling train as it travels from city to city, in what will likely amount to nothing more than a lengthy Ringling commercial.
The reality is that Ringling Bros. circus animals may spend up to 11 months of the year traveling, caged or chained for upwards of 26 hours at a time, enduring extreme conditions, and forced to perform unnatural tricks which they may also find painful.
This will likely not be the reality portrayed in the TNT show. Unfortunately, this show will become another marketing vehicle for Ringling. Bros. as it reaches into the homes of millions of viewers across the country — many of whom may be unaware of the sad reality of the living and training conditions experienced by the animal performers.
Contact the executives at TNT who are responsible for producing and airing a “reality” show on Ringling Bros. and urge them to abandon their plans to air this show.
