Animal (White) House

Posted By on Fri, Nov 7, 2008 at 11:07 PM

President-elect Barack Obama’s executively adorable promise to daughters Malia and Natasha could mean the Obama family will adopt the next First Dog rather than purchase a purebred — shelter pets are crossing their paws — while voters on both West and East coasts passed Humane Society-approved initiatives, making animal rights the sleeper hit on Tuesday’s ticket.

 

Though they failed to protect rights of the equal variety, voters in California passed Proposition 2, a landmark ballot item for animal rights in the state.

 

And in Massachusetts, voters passed a ban on greyhound racing, effective in 2010.

And somewhere, a wolf marksman shed a tear on a mid-flight helicopter.
