Not to toot our own horn too much, but recently we’ve been scoring a lot of points in the “win” column, and it’s pretty freaking awesome if I do say so myself. If animal liberation was the FIFA World Cup, we’d be England and all those fuckheads who seek to profit off exploiting other species would be the U.S. For those of you who didn’t get that, England = good at soccer, America = got beat by Ghana…
Only a few weeks after Welch’s promised it would never again fund experiments on animals to sell juice and Ralph Lauren pledged to never sell fur again, Whole Foods – the largest natural foods chain in the United States – announced that it has banned the sale of live lobsters and soft-shell crabs from its stores because of concern for the animals’ welfare. PETA and a coalition of other animal protection organizations have been working with Whole Foods to improve the living (and dying) conditions of the animals it sells. The store has also banned the sale of foie gras and eggs from hens cruelly confined to battery cages.

God I love soccer analogies.
