International animal rights round up...

Just a few items that caught my eye this morning from around the globe:

Ottawa landowners association takes aim at animal rights group:
At a staged event for news media, the Canadian group accused the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) of ruining the life of one Manitoulin Island farmer in a two-year legal saga that saw him convicted on four charges of failing to provide suitable and adequate care for his horses.
