“I work out whenever I can and I don’t eat meat or dairy. When you get that close to an animal, things change and it doesn’t seem to matter if it’s a dog or a chicken or a cow – they all have feelings and all have emotions.” – Famke Janssen

– Split-Dalmatian County broke the Animal Protection Act becuase it did not find shelter for abandoned animals, yet it somehow has money to sponsor shamefull bull fights.
