Progress In Animal Legislation: Measurement And Assessment, Andrew N. Rowan, Beth Rosen
Beth Rosen MD
As the animal movement has gained more political authority and public acceptance, it needs better ways to assess and follow its progress—or lack thereof—towards its goals. In this era, in which nonprofits and funding agencies are demanding better measures of effectiveness, the animal movement needs to examine how it looks at the progress it is (or is not) making in gaining better legal protection for animals.

Uncertainty, Precaution, And Adaptive Management In Wildlife Trade, 2015 University of Denver Sturm College of Law
Uncertainty, Precaution, And Adaptive Management In Wildlife Trade, Annecoos Wiersema
Michigan Journal of International Law
Wildlife trade is big business. Legal international trade in just some of the wild animals and plants traded worldwide is estimated at $350 to $530 million per year. The United States is the primary importer of virtually every major taxon of these species, including mammals, reptiles, fish, and plants. When it comes to illegal trade, estimates of its value range from $7 to $23 billion annually, covering wild animals, fish, and timber. This illegal trade fuels organized crime and militia and terrorist groups. In the face of all this pressure, some wild species appear to be traded in sustainable amounts ...

Interpreting "Enhancement Of Survival" In Granting Section 10 Endangered Species Act Exemptions To Animal Exhibitors, Anne Haas
Pace Environmental Law Review
Managing endangered species in captivity presents a unique set of problems. Despite their enormous potential to preserve species in the wild - through captive breeding programs, conservation initiatives, and environmental advocacy - many facilities are lagging behind. Part II of this note discusses the evolution of zoos from ancient Egyptian displays of wealth to modern day conservation and education centers. Focusing on the Endangered Species Act, Part III introduces various laws protecting captive animals. Part IV discusses the great potential of zoos to preserve species and the ecosystems on which they rely, while acknowledging the diverse nature of animal exhibitors and the ...
A Sitting Duck: Local Government Regulation Of Hunting And Weapons Discharge In The State Of New York, 2015 Hofstra University, Maurice A. Deane School of Law
A Sitting Duck: Local Government Regulation Of Hunting And Weapons Discharge In The State Of New York, Gary E. Kalbaugh
Pace Environmental Law Review
On March 31, 2014, the New York State Legislature significantly modified New York's Environmental Conservation Law. The Environmental Conservation Law imposes limitations on the discharge of longbows. A longbow is defined by New York's Department of Environmental Conservation as “a longbow, recurve bow or compound bow which is designed to be used by holding the bow at arm's length, with arrow on the string, and which is drawn, pulled and released by hand or with the aid of a hand-held trigger device attached to the bowstring.”
Before the 2014 amendment, longbows could not be discharged in such ...
When The Regulators Refuse To Regulate: Pervasive Usda Underenforcement Of The Humane Slaughter Act, 2015 The Good Food Institute & New Crop Capital
When The Regulators Refuse To Regulate: Pervasive Usda Underenforcement Of The Humane Slaughter Act, Bruce Friedrich
The Humane Methods of Livestock Slaughter Act (HMSA) declares that it is “the policy of the United States that the slaughtering of livestock and the handling of livestock in connection with slaughter shall be carried out only by humane methods.” Unfortunately, the HMSA is pervasively under-enforced, because the agency charged with administering it does an almost unfathomably inadequate job of doing so. This article: 1) briefly explains the factual and legal background of humane slaughter in the United States; 2) reviews government reports and undercover investigations that prove that USDA is not enforcing the law; 3) considers common theories that ...

Should Elephants Have Standing?, 2015 Carleton University
Should Elephants Have Standing?, Tyler Totten
Western Journal of Legal Studies
In the 2011, Chief Justice Fraser of the Alberta Court of Appeal raised an interesting question in her dissenting judgment in Reece v Edmonton (City): Should elephants have standing? Drawing on the ideas in her dissent and the Alberta’s Animal Protection Act on which the decision is based, I argue that granting animals standing is a pragmatic solution to overcoming the limitations and obstacles behind enforcing animal protection laws. This is demonstrated by exploring both the practicality and feasibility of granting standing to animals. On the point of practicality, I explain why this solution is preferable over other possibilities ...

Idaho's Ag-Gag Law Goes Down And Other States May Be Next, Stacey L. Gordon
Faculty Journal Articles & Other Writings
In 2014, an undercover investigator working for Mercy For Animals documented horrific animal cruelty at the Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen, Idaho. Video of the abuse was released nationally. The owners of the dairy instituted reforms and the abusers were prosecuted. But the law that was passed this time, within months of the video’s release, protects neither the animals nor the food supply, but the agriculture industry.
Take It To The Limit: The Illegal Regulation Prohibiting The Take Of Any Threatened Species Under The Endangered Species Act, 2015 Pacific Legal Foundation
Take It To The Limit: The Illegal Regulation Prohibiting The Take Of Any Threatened Species Under The Endangered Species Act, Jonathan Wood
The Endangered Species Act forbids the “take” – any activity that adversely affects – any member of an endangered species, but only endangered species. The statute also provides for the listing of threatened species, i.e. species that may become endangered, but protects them only by requiring agencies to consider the impacts of their projects on them. Shortly after the statute was adopted, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service reversed Congress’ policy choice by adopting a regulation that forbids the take of any threatened species. The regulation is not authorized by the Endangered Species Act, but ...

An International Sos (Save Our Sharks): How The International Legal Framework Should Be Used To Save Our Sharks, Crystal Green
Pace International Law Review
The purpose of this Article is to shed light on the plight on sharks in international and domestic waters. An estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year. The cruel and wasteful practice of shark finning is responsible for a large portion of those killings. Shark fins are the most valuable part of the shark, because they are used as the key ingredient – and namesake – in an Asian delicacy known as “shark fin soup.” This Article opens with background information on the dire situation sharks are facing in our oceans, and how the depletion of these top predators from the ...

Scuttling Iuu Fishing And Rewarding Sustainable Fishing: Enhancing The Effectiveness Of The Port State Measures Agreement With Trade-Related Measures, Anastasia Telesetsky
Seattle University Law Review
Illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing (IUU fishing) is a substantial threat to global food security and a recurring problem for global fishery managers already facing difficult baseline situations exacerbated by climate change, including warming oceans and increasing acidification. There is nothing historically new about IUU fishing; there have always been poachers who take advantage of operating in the shadows of legal commercial fishing. What is new is the extent to which marine poaching has industrialized. It is estimated that 19% of the worldwide value of marine catches are unlawful. The problem is not limited to developing states. For example, even ...

Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain: Concealment, Revelation, And The Question Of Food Safety, Denis W. Stearns
Seattle University Law Review
Despite knowledge that commerce in food is a profit-driven enterprise, the public has consistently put great faith in the wholesomeness and safety of the food being purchased. To some extent, such faith is necessary, even if not always justified. In making the decision to put a bite of food in one’s own mouth, or the mouth of a friend or family member, a form of faith or trust must accompany the act of eating. For who would knowingly eat food suspected to be unsafe? But that is precisely what millions of people do every year, with a great many ...
