A day after Jane Birkin publicly asked Hermès to remove her name from Birkin bags made with crocodile skin, the company has released a statement saying that they’re looking into how the animals are treated. What they haven’t addressed is whether they’ll stop referring to Birkin Croco’s as Birkins, but that’s probably… »7/29/15 10:20am7/29/15 10:20am

That Time Mike Huckabee's Loser Son Allegedly Tortured a Dog to Death

Welcome to Loser Sons of Politics, a new column where the politically minded among the Jezebel staff recall with fondness the antics of the loser sons of politicians.

If You Dress Like a Cute Dog, Maybe the Cops Won't Shoot You?

Police brutality is a widespread problem in America and it's no secret that some of us are more emotional about cops mistreating animals than people. The Daily Show took that paradigm and skewered our 'save the animals but kill the people' mentality with a furry solution. Fancy a dog costume? It could save your… »11/11/14 10:50am11/11/14 10:50am

Deranged Psychopaths Kick Squirrel 6,000 Feet Down Into Grand Canyon

It appears that the pastoral splendor of one of nature's more delightful wonders was not enough for two men who visited the Grand Canyon over the weekend. Instead of taking selfies, the men did something much more fun. They kicked a squirrel off the edge and posted videos. Who are these charmers, and can I get a date? »8/04/14 7:15pm8/04/14 7:15pm

Protesters Want 'World's Saddest Polar Bear' Moved From Argentina Zoo

Arturo, the only remaining polar bear in the Mendoza Zoo outside of Buenos Aires, has been dubbed the "world's saddest polar bear" by animal rights activists, and for good reason.

Vet Told Family to Euthanize Dog, Allegedly Kept Dog Alive to Bleed Dry

Having to put your pet to sleep is one of the most heartbreaking things one can do.

Animal Planet Show Accused of Drugging and Killing Animals

As I've written before, I have a major thing for animal shows. Animal Planet's Call of the Wildman is a little broad and manufactured for my tastes (I like my animal stories with DIGNITY), but damned if that stopped me from watching ten episodes in a row in a lazy Sunday marathon the other week. The antics of Ernie… »1/22/14 9:40am1/22/14 9:40am

Gap and Zara Ban Angora Fur Following Outcry Over Cruelty to Bunnies

Following mounting pressure from EVERY HUMAN WITH A CONSCIENCE, Gap and Zara have joined several other retailers in (temporarily) banning products made with angora fur.

Cat Stench at Cat Lady’s House Gets So Bad It Sets Off the Smoke Detector

It's been a bad week for cat ladies in the news. First, a woman in Israel made headlines when her husband left her after she chose her 550 cats over him, and now a woman in New Jersey has raised (or rather lowered) the bar in the sad field of cat hoarding. In what has to be a cat lady first, it appears that the stench… »5/29/12 11:15pm5/29/12 11:15pm

Does This Anti-Animal Testing Video By Lush Cosmetics Downplay Violence Towards Women?

Back in February it was revealed that major cosmetics companies with brand names you may recognize from your mother, grandmother or Mad Men—Avon, Estee Lauder and Mary Kay (although the latter showed some impetus to reach a compromise that didn't involve animal testing)—were complying with the Chinese government… »4/28/12 2:45pm4/28/12 2:45pm
