It’s been awhile since we’ve updated on the world of animal rights and supporters — so let’s jump right in:

0703_duck.jpgSpice Girl Melanie Brown’s new husband Stephen Belafonte apparently doesn’t think too highly of ducks. The jackass was recently fined $600 after throwing a brick at a mallard outside his home in Point Pleasant and killing the animal. Proving that there is indeed justice for such cruelty, a warrant has been issued for his arrest over unpaid fines regarding the incident of ‘animal control offense’. Keep a brick handy if you see him.

The coat is spectacular; the fur cuffs give it just the right amount of glamour.” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw had the last word adding, “She looks morally bankrupt in that fur.” Couldn’t agree more.
