Envigo Is Trying to Sell 2,200 Dogs—Most to Labs Overseas—Into 2023, Contradicting Claims to Judge

Lynchburg, Va. – According to a motion just filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has discovered that Envigo intends to sell more than 2,200 beagles between now and July 2023—in stark contrast to the company’s June 13 representations to Senior U.S. District Court Judge Norman K. Moon that it wished to sell “more than 500” dogs in the ensuing 30 days. Only four of the more than 90 contracts for dogs the DOJ has reviewed identify the defendant in the case, Envigo RMS LLC, as supplying the dogs—nearly every contract identifies a different Envigo entity, whose federal license does not cover the 2,200 dogs whose fates are at stake. Envigo wants to sell more than 1,200 beagles to customers overseas after emphasizing to Moon that its facility played a significant role in the U.S. domestic industry of breeding beagles for experimentation. The DOJ has asked Moon to clarify how his June 17 order in the case applies to these points and, thus, the dogs’ fates.

The $330 million company’s move comes despite the vigorous objections of the DOJ and 29 Virginia legislators who urged the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to exercise its authority under the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA) and suspend Envigo’s license in light of its 74 AWA violations in 10 months. In late March, U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) and Tim Kaine (D-Va.) called on the USDA to “immediately suspend the license of the Envigo breeding facility.” USDA action would have prevented these beagles from being used in painful experiments and killed and thousands of other beagles from being subjected to ongoing cruel and unlawful conditions.

“Inotiv, Envigo’s parent company, admits that less than 1% of its revenue is generated by this business, yet it insists on shipping more than 2,000 of these long-neglected beagles to laboratories around the globe, where holes may be drilled in their skulls, chemicals may be injected into their brains, and their eyes may be burned, among other forms of torment,” says PETA Senior Vice President of Cruelty Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch. “The USDA’s inexcusable failure to enforce the Animal Welfare Act left thousands of dogs to suffer and die terribly at Envigo and may now condemn thousands of beagles to more terror, deprivation, and misery.”

Earlier this week, PETA Honorary Director Bill Maher and more than 55,000 kind people called on Inotiv to allow all the dogs to be adopted. PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—conducted a seven-month undercover investigation into Envigo, which revealed more than 360 dead puppies. Workers with no veterinary credentials stuck needles into puppies’ heads, apparently to drain hematomas, without any pain relief and injected euthanasia drugs directly into their hearts without sedation—causing them immense pain—among other abuse. Broadcast-quality video footage from PETA’s investigation is available here, and photographs are available here.

Monkeypox Outbreak Another Warning for to Change Our Relationship with Wildlife, Scientists Say

As an emerging outbreak of the monkeypox virus continues an uncharacteristic worldwide spread, scientists are pointing to humanity’s increasingly destructive relationship with wildlife as a leading cause of pandemics.

Worldwide, there were more than 120 confirmed or suspected cases of monkeypox in at least 11 non-African countries in a single week. As of June 3,  at least 21 monkeypox cases had been identified in the United States, according to the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The disease, so named for being first detected in monkeys in a laboratory, is a relative of smallpox whose effects include flu-like symptoms, enlarged lymph nodes, fever, intense headache, low energy, a rash, and lesions on the face, hands, and feet. Most people will recover within a few weeks without treatment, although newborns, children, and people with compromised immune systems are at higher risk for complications and death.

While there are vaccines and treatments, and the disease often doesn’t prove fatal, scientists are concerned about the rapid spread and also the zoonotic virus’s jumping continents.

“The number of (monkeypox) cases detected outside of Africa has already surpassed the number detected outside the continent since 1970, when the virus was first identified as causing disease in humans,” Molecular Virologist Dr. Vinod Balasubramaniam told the New Straits Times (NST). “This rapid spread is what has scientists on high alert.”

Scientists had formerly linked outbreaks to people who had traveled to Africa or had contact with an infected animal. A former monkeypox outbreak in the United States, in 2003, impacted at least 47 people across six states and was traced back to a shipment of rodents from Ghana who spread the virus to prairie dogs in Illinois, according to Nature. 

Zoonotic diseases, like monkeypox, also are being facilitated by human encroachment into forests and wilderness areas through logging, mining and agriculture, wildlife poaching and illegal hunting, as well as live and exotic animal markets and the illicit global wildlife trade, the NST reported, citing several international health experts.

In addition to scientists and health experts sounding alarms through global news media, a 2020 United Nations report also warned that more diseases transmitted from animals to humans are likely to emerge as a result of destroying wildlife habitats, using unsustainable farming techniques and climate change, NST reported.

“It’s eye-opening to see this kind of spread,” UCLA epidemiologist Anne Rimoin told Nature.

A recent study published in the journal Science Advances argues that current methods for preventing the next global pandemic rely too heavily on actions taken after a virus moves from host species to humans, which is likely what happened with COVID-19, HIV, Ebola, SARS and Avian flu.

The study points out that the most significant risks for pandemics — including widespread forest destruction, large-scale agriculture operations and the wildlife trade — have been known publicly for decades.

For monkeypox to be detected in people with no apparent connections indicates that the virus may have been spreading silently, which Andrea McCollum, an epidemiologist who heads the poxvirus team at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Nature was “deeply concerning.”

We encourage everyone to do what they can to offset the threats to wildlife that facilitate the spread of zoonotic disease — including to choose a compassionate, plant-based diet, purchase sustainably sourced paper products and coffees that don’t contribute to clear cutting,  and to sign our petitions speaking out against the illegal wildlife trade.

VH1 Fires Reality Star After On-Camera Animal Abuse

VH1 has fired a reality star after video circulated online showing him beating a dog with a folding chair.

The network booted Ceaser Emanuel, featured in “Black Ink Crew New York,” after a frightening clip reportedly shot on a doorbell camera showed him repeatedly kicking and hitting a dog.

VH1 announced Thursday it had “made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel” and said his departure won’t impact the upcoming season of the tattoo shop-based show.

Walter Mosley, Emanuel’s lawyer, told People that the video making rounds was an old clip and that it showed the reality star stopping dogs from “attacking other animals.”

Mosley described his client as a dog lover and owner of “many” pets.

“This was an unfortunate situation as I understand it, where there were a number of other aggressive dogs attacking smaller dogs and probably was a lapse of judgment as to how to appropriately break it up, break up that interaction,” Mosley told People.

Peak Wildfire Season Prompts Urgent Plea From PETA: Leave No Animals Behind

For Immediate Release:
June 23, 2022

Contact:
Megan Wiltsie 202-483-7382

Fresno, Calif. – As wildfire season reaches its peak, raising the likelihood of evacuations—like the ones in 2020 due to the Creek fire—PETA has placed a sky-high message in the area urging residents to make sure their evacuation plans include all family members, from hamsters to horses.

“Because animals left behind face agonizing injuries or death during a wildlfire, the time to include them in worst-case scenario plans is right now, before disaster strikes,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “The climate catastrophe has made a protracted, more intense fire season the new norm, and PETA urges everyone to prepare for evacuation now and be ready to flee flames with the whole family.”

PETA offers the following urgent reminders during wildfire season:

  • Companion animals should never be left behind to fend for themselves during evacuations. They are no better equipped to survive a disaster than humans are, and anyone who evacuates and intentionally abandons animals to fend for themselves may be prosecuted.
  • Be prepared. Put together an animal emergency kit in advance, with food, water, carriers, leashes, veterinary records, and anything else you need to keep your animals safe and comfortable during an evacuation. Make sure they’re wearing collars or harnesses with identification.
  • Confined horses and other animals can’t outrun wildfires. They should never be locked in their stalls or confined in any other way that would render them unable to flee. Anyone who sees animals in distress and is unable to help should note their locations and alert authorities immediately.

The billboard is located at 4046 N. Barton Ave. in Fresno.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information about PETA’s investigative newsgathering and reporting, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

Threatened Sage Grouse Have New Shot at Survival, Thanks to Federal Court Rulings

Sage grouse, iconic animals known for their showy plumage and eccentric mating dances, have a new shot at survival following a federal court ruling that says they could deserve protections under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

U.S. District Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley ruled the federal government had wrongly withdrawn a proposal for the protection of bi-state sage grouse, a genetically diverse subpopulation that only inhabits a limited area along the Nevada-California border.

The government failed to consider the impacts of natural disasters, such as ongoing wildfires and droughts, the small overall population of the bi-state sage grouse, and the significance of the potential loss of this vulnerable species, Corley said.

The decision will force the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to re-evaluate whether the disappearing animals merit ESA protections and was applauded by the groups that challenged the withdrawal.

“These rare dancing birds have a shot at survival thanks to this court decision,” said Ilene Anderson, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Without the Endangered Species Act’s legal protections, multiple threats will just keep pushing these grouse toward extinction.”

Millions of sage grouse used to roam the United States, but their populations have plunged in recent decades due to numerous threats to their habitats — including cattle grazing, cheatgrass invasion, residential development, wildfires and drought.

The animals also have had a troubled history with the federal government and the FWS, the agency tasked with monitoring them.

The birds were listed as “threatened” in 2013, but the FWS dropped a proposal to further protect them in 2015. In 2018, a court ordered a re-evaluation, but in 2020 the proposal dropped once again.

This round, several environmental and conservation groups — Desert Survivors, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Western Watersheds Project, and WildEarth Guardians — sued, resulting in the recent ruling.

“The Fish and Wildlife Service must address the threats to these birds and their habitat, as well as the failure of existing efforts to halt their decline,” said WildEarth Guardians Attorney Joe Busyhead.

WildEarth Guardians reported that efforts to help the birds, including barbed wire fencing with markers to reduce collisions with sheep and cattle, and vegetation treatments haven’t stopped the bi-state sage grouse’s decline.

Meanwhile, the birds’ habitat has decreased by more than 136,000 acres over the past 11 years.

Earlier this year, the sage grouse had another victory, when a Montana district court judge invalidated hundreds of oil and gas leases that spanned thousands of acres of formerly protected grouse habitat that had been opened to drilling following a 2017 policy reversal. 

That victory followed a lawsuit that reported the birds had already lost more than half of their historic range, and was filed by Earthjustice on behalf of the Montana Wildlife Federation, the Wilderness Society, the National Audubon Society, the National Wildlife Federation, and Montana Audubon.

We’re ecstatic over these two critical developments for these precious and imperiled birds, whose right to exist shouldn’t be threatened by human encroachment and activities.

Outlook on the Yeast Extracts and Beta-Glucan Global Market to 2028

Company Logo

Dublin, June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Yeast Extracts and Beta-Glucan Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Type (Yeast Extract and Yeast Beta-Glucan), By Application, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Global Yeast Extracts and Beta-Glucan Market size is expected to reach $2.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 7.9% CAGR during the forecast period.

Beta-glucan is a type of soluble dietary fiber. Bacteria, yeast, fungus, and cereal are major sources of beta-glucan. Yeast extract is a culinary flavor that is made with the same yeast that is utilized in the production of bread and beer. The market for yeast extract and beta-glucan is expected to develop due to an increase in processed food consumption, dramatic evolution in dietary behaviors, and an increase in the disposable income. In addition, there is a rise in demand for instant ready-to-eat as well as ready-to-cook foods that contain yeast extract and beta-glucan to boost nutritional content. In addition, in the food and beverage sector, yeast extract is utilized as a flavoring additive.

In general, yeast extracts are made with three steps namely, fermentation (development of the yeast), disruption (breaking of the cell), and separation (extraction of the soluble part). Although, the standard methodology of heat-autolysis utilizing excess yeast from beer brewing produces a significant amount of yeast extract spreads and alternative ways exist for manufacturing specialized varieties.

When it comes to fermentation, wasted beer yeast is frequently contaminated with harsh chemicals from hops, necessitating a debittering procedure to remove the majority of the unpleasant flavor. This problem does not impact yeast from other sources. Various types of yeast extracts are also highly biodiverse, comprising yeasts other than conventional Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as well as lactic acid bacteria that cause beer deterioration. Several physical and chemical approaches, rather than the heat-autolysis process, cab be followed to disrupt the cell. This process can also enable specific molecules to be extracted or an extract to be produced without the cell contents being hydrolyzed.

Yeast extracts are sophisticated yeast hydrolysates that are commonly being employed in the food and beverage industry all over the world. They’re high in Sulphur, carbon, trace nutrients, vitamin B complexes, and other important growth ingredients for a variety of microorganisms” development and growth. The two types of yeast extracts are hydrolyzed yeast extract and yeast auto lysate extract. Beta-glucans, on the other hand, are fibers present in the cells of microorganisms like yeast, bacteria, fungi, and algae. They can also be found in plants like barley and oats.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a severe impact on various economies all over the world. Several businesses were significantly devastated as a result of the outbreak of the COVID-19 infection. In addition, the governments of several countries were forced to impose lockdowns in their nations. As a result, the manufacturing units of numerous goods were temporarily shut down. Moreover, these lockdowns also caused a major disruption in the supply chain of various goods. Further, the COVID-19 led the worldwide healthcare industry to a significant failure due to the shortage of beds and oxygen in hospitals.

Market Growth Factors

Rising adoption of veganism

Veganism is becoming more popular among those who want to live a better lifestyle without harming animals. The number of people that are adopting a vegan lifestyle is constantly rising. In addition, there is a significant number of advantages that can be leveraged by the adoption of a vegan lifestyle.

One of the major benefits of following a vegan lifestyle is that it completely eliminates any kind of animal cruelty. Moreover, following a vegan lifestyle also comprises a substantial number of health benefits for the consumer. Yeast is a single-celled fungus that grows on plants or in soil but has no circulatory or neurological system.

Rising health awareness among people

Consumers are constantly growing more aware of their health and proactiveness in maintaining it through healthy living, due to which, their preferences have shifted from processed food to healthy food, functional foods, and superfoods. Consumers are more conscious of food content and pay close attention to product contents and nutrition labels.

This shift in consumer behaviors has resulted in increased demand for nutrition-rich and healthy foods and supplements, prompting various producers to introduce new functional, non-genetically modified, and naturally produced food products. The demand for multifunctional beta-glucan is rapidly rising as people are becoming more concerned about their health and fitness.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Rising prevalence of Hypoglycemia

Diabetes is becoming more common around the world as a result of a lack of dietary guidance as well as a shortage of insulin in the body of numerous people all over the world. Patients with hypoglycemia have low blood sugar levels, while those with hyperglycemia have excessive blood sugar levels.

The beta-glucan is well-known for its functional ability to lower blood sugar levels in the body, which has limited glucan intake among hypoglycemics. A low blood sugar level can lead the patient to several harmful problems. For example, reduced blood sugar levels can cause weakness in the body of the person, which can further lead to a lack of physical as well as mental strength. Low blood sugar levels can also cause dizziness and various other uncomfortable conditions.

What Killed the Kansas Cows?

The scorching heat of the Kansas summer sun is being blamed for the deaths of thousands of cows—but mass deaths are the norm in the animal agriculture industry. If the photos and videos of the dead Kansas cows shocked you, there’s one thing you can do to prevent more catastrophes like this one: Go vegan.

The Farming Industry Only Cares About Profiting Off Animals

The cows who died in 100-degree heat on Kansas feedlots were the victims of an industry that doesn’t care about animals. Cows are sensitive, loving individuals who communicate with one another and have unique personalities—but humans continue to traumatically separate calves from their mothers, steal their milk, and otherwise exploit them for food. Farm owners aren’t required to have any evacuation plans for the animals in their care when disaster strikes, and cows and others are left behind to drown in hurricanes and floods or burn to death during fires. They’re also killed en masse when there’s a whisper of disease. The climate catastrophe is only intensifying, in large part due to the exploitation of animals in agriculture, so it’s no shock that heat waves are on the list of disasters.

And if they don’t die from injury, disease, or natural disaster on the farm, conditions during transport to slaughter are so horrific and poorly regulated that every year in the U.S., around 20 million animals die—from heat stress, hypothermia, or trauma—before ever making it to the slaughterhouse.

Cows Always Suffer When Humans Exploit Them

The cows who died in Kansas were forced to live on feedlots where it appears that there was no way for them to escape the heat—not enough shade, water, or shelter. Their deaths were likely slow and painful, but had they lived long enough to be useful to the farming industry, their deaths would have been no less horrific: They would have been shot in the head with a captive-bolt gun and strung up by one leg, and then their throats would have been cut before they were skinned and gutted.

Cows are social animals who form complex relationships with others in their herd. They love their calves and enjoy frolicking with friends in green pastures at sanctuaries. However, more than 29 million cows suffer and die in the meat and dairy industries every year in the U.S. alone.

Farming Animals Is One of the Biggest Causes of the Climate Catastrophe

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the waste from just 200 cows produces as much nitrogen as the sewage from a community of up to 10,000 humans. Rainforests, prairies, and wetlands are systematically destroyed and converted to farmland in order to grow the enormous amount of crops needed to feed cows. A typical cow produces 120 pounds of waste each day—and when this manure is used as fertilizer, it can contaminate streams and lakes, destroy entire ecosystems, poison food products, and pollute the atmosphere with ammonia and methane. None of this is the cows’ fault—they don’t want to be exploited any more than you want the environment to be destroyed.
