- A PETA investigation at a Pennsylvania dairy farm reveals the filthy, miserable origins of Land O'Lakes butter.
- Worldwide outrage erupts after a girl is caught on video hurling puppies to their deaths.
- Leaked photos from a company that supplies animal-restraint devices to laboratories show horrifically mutilated monkeys.
- Lady Gaga's meat dress induces a collective gag.
- A laboratory investigated by PETA closes, and more than 200 animals are rescued.
- An orca at SeaWorld dies at roughly half most orcas' expected life span.
- Thousands of chickens are spared from being ground up alive.
- PETA's use of the pope's image on a spay/neuter leaflet touches off controversy.
- NASA calls off its ghastly primate radiation experiments after hearing from more than 100,000 PETA members.
