ANIMAL WELFARE VIDEOS
FUNNY

DRUGS MAKE SUPERBUGS
When antibiotics are used day after day to raise animals, superbugs can arise. These superbugs become resistant to entire classes of antibiotics, reducing the antibiotic toolkit doctors have available for people. The germs can also spread directly from factory farms to nearby communities. What's happening on industrial animal-raising farms is nothing to laugh at.  Watch superbugs/antibiotic resistance video(3:18)

IS IT FACTORY-FARMED CHICKEN?
In this funny video from Food and Water Watch, two patrons are super-excited about the waitress' explanations regarding the menu's factory-farmed chicken and how it was raised.  Watch funny industrial chicken farming video(1:47)

 
funny biodiversity video link; thumb of graphic of scared polar bear, wearing a suit, walking in the dark
THE DAVERSITY CODE
This is a very well done animation in the mode of a murder mystery. What happened to the polar bear in the Museum of Natural History? What do the clues he left mean? The plot thickens....  Watch funny biodiversity video.

CALL ME  ISHMAEKILL
Humorous (and sad-but-true) animation about the revival of whale hunting, the impact of Navy sonar, and other deadly indignities heaped upon our wondrous whales. A hearty "Ahoy!" and "Arrrrggh" to ya, matey.   Content no longer available from host site (Mark.Fiore.com)

ANIMAL COMMENT
Another good one from Flash-master Mark Fiore; this time acerbically addressing the horrors we direct towards our oceans and their inhabitants.    No longer available from host site.

SOUNDING OFF ABOUT WHALES

THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS, DOGS, AND LAWN CHEMICALS
In these difficult economic times, there's one easy cost-cutting measure you can take: Forget about applying chemical fertilizers and pesticides to your lawn this year. Reason enough should be that lawn chemicals pose a danger to pets, kids, and the local creek. But the truth is that they're not even good for your lawn because they degrade soil quality. For the not-safe-for-pets angle, you can watch the free 17-minute video The Truth About Cats, Dogs, and Lawn Chemicals.

GP comment:  The chance of a major hydroelectric dam coming down to benefit species is zero (and, from an overall environmental perspective, should be zero). It's good that their "dam talk" acknowledges that reality.
