Guilty Dog Pictures and the Myth of Canine Shame - The Atlantic
In a 2009 study, she had owners forbid their dogs to eat a tempting treat, then asked the owners to leave the room. While each owner was gone, she either removed the treat or fed it to the dog. When the owners returned, they were told—regardless of the truth—that their dog either had or had not eaten it. If owners thought their dogs had indulged, reprimands followed, and guilty looks abounded. Yet dogs who hadn’t eaten the treat were more likely to appear guilty than dogs who had—so long as their owners lashed out. Far from signaling remorse, one group of researchers wrote in a 2012 paper, the guilty look is likely a submissive response that has proved advantageous because it reduces conflict between dog and human.

Why we must respect the rights of all sentient animals
The only way to recognize the moral personhood of animals is to accord them a right not to be property — and that means the abolition of animal exploitation.

Pigeons grasp the abstract concepts of space and time
New research adds to the growing recognition that animals beyond humans and primates show abstract intelligence.
an organism does not have to perfectly mimic the human system to arrive at its own kind of intelligence.

Elephant Nature Park
Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand where you can volunteer and visit to help. We have been involved in dozens of rescues which have created our thriving elephant herd. The park provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes and many other animals under our care.

Volunteers and visitors contribute to the healing while learning about their lives past and present. Arrange a visit to all our projects in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar. | retr 21 nov 2017

The FBI’s Hunt for Two Missing Piglets Reveals the Federal Cover-Up of Barbaric Factory Farms
The pigs are so desperate to get out of their crates that they often spend weeks trying to bite through the iron bars until their gums gush blood, bash their heads against the walls, and suffer a disease in which their organs end up mangled in the wrong places, from the sheer physical trauma of trying to escape from a tiny space or from acute anxiety (called “organ torsion”).

The Selfie Monkey Goes to the Ninth Circuit - Motherboard
There's two related, but ultimately separate questions here:
1. Can a monkey have standing to sue under the Copyright Act?
2. Can a monkey be an author under the Copyright Act?

"It makes no sense to allow a monkey to enforce a copyright suit," she said. "But if you're going to do that, it's equally absurd to deny a monkey written notice of a right to intervene in a lawsuit."
