Snoop Dogg served Dunkin’s
new Beyond Sausage Sandwich
to unsuspecting customers at
a location in Los Angeles.
In a video posted to Instagram,
Dunkin says, “It brought in
the biggest Beyond Meat fan
they know, Snoop Dogg, to
play employee for the day.”
Snoop mans the counter
and the drive-through
as he serves the Beyond
Sausage Sandwich to customers.
– You want that plant-based great taste?
– [Customer] Thank you.
– You have a beautiful day, you hear me?
– [Narrator] People are
understandably surprised to see
the iconic rapper behind
the counter at a Dunkin.
This isn’t the first of Snoop
Dogg’s Beyond Meat promotions.
Last May, the 48-year-old
rapper drove a food truck
around El Segundo, CA,
where Beyond Meat is headquartered,
serving vegan burgers in
honor of the company’s IPO.
He also served Beyond Burgers at the
pre-Grammy’s party last February.
The Beyond Sausage Sandwich
made its nationwide debut
following a successful trial at locations
across New York City.
The sandwich features a
plant-based breakfast sausage
made by Beyond Meat, on an English muffin.
The U.S. could soon make certain acts of
animal cruelty a federal crime.
The U.S. Senate unanimously passed
the Preventing Animal
Cruelty and Torture Act,
introduced by U.S. Senator, Pat Toomey.
The bill would make
burning, drowning, crushing,
suffocating, and impaling live animals,
as well as sexually exploiting
them, a federal felony.
– It would be the first
federal law to protect
all animals from torture,
maiming, and abuse.
– [Narrator] Most animal
cruelty laws are passed
at a state level.
The PACT Act would ban
extreme acts of cruelty
when they take place
in interstate commerce
or on federal property.
The bill has strong bi-partisan support
with 301 co-sponsors.
Republican Vern Buchanan of Florida,
a leading co-sponsor of the bill,
said that “the PACT Act is
a milestone for pet owners
and animal lovers across the country.”

Queen Elizabeth II is now fur-free
and faux alternatives will
replace all of her furs.
The Queen’s personal
adviser and senior dresser,
Angela Kelly, who has worked for the
Royal Household for 25 years,
revealed the wardrobe
update in her new memoir,
The Other Side of the Coin:
The Queen, the Dresser,
and the Wardrobe.
– It was an announcement, per say,
it was more a revelation
that came out of the book.
Along with several other things
about the Queen’s wardrobe, her makeup,
all sorts of different
aspects that Angela’s sort of
trying to correct the record.
And obviously with Her Majesty’s blessing.
– [Narrator] She wrote, if
Her Majesty is due to attend
an engagement in
particularly cold weather,
from 2019 onwards,
fake fur will be used to
make sure she stays warm.
British Vogue notes that,
fur fashion has long been a status symbol
of the Royal Family.
The Queen wore a purple velvet robe
trimmed with ermine to her
coronation ceremony in 1953.
She has had a floor-length
coat on rotation
for more than 60 years.
But, the Queen’s wardrobe
is changing with the times.
Activist groups welcome the change.
Claire Bass, executive director
of Humane Society International,
believes that activists can
capture the momentum to push
for a total ban on the sale of fur.
We are calling on the British government
to follow Her Majesty’s example,
and make the U.K. the
first country in the world
to ban the sale of animal fur.
IKEA U.K. launched a
new vegan food campaign
in honor of National Vegan Month.
The Swedish furniture giant is offering
IKEA family members a plant-based meal,
dessert, and a hot drink for 5 pounds
for the duration of November.
The company offers a range of vegan meals,
including vegan meatballs,
hot dogs, and ice cream.
It also serves vegetable and lentil soup
and a sweet potato, cashew
nut, and apricot tart.
Founded in 1943, IKEA
consistently takes steps
toward being more sustainable.
Earlier this year, it began
phasing out single-use plastics,
like stirrers, from all of its cafes.
Its goal is to remove all
single-use plastics by 2020.
It’s also trying to make its
food menu more planet-friendly.
50% of all of the hot
meals served are meat-free.
It has even completely removed meat
from its Christmas menu.
Seoul, South Korea’s
last three dog meat shops
will no longer slaughter
dogs on site for their meat.
Although the shops are still
permitted to sell dog meat,
Seoul’s mayor, lawyer Park Won-soon,
and the Seoul metropolitan
government campaigned
for more than a year for the city
to become dog slaughter-free.
Through persuasion through many years,
we stopped all slaughter in Seoul.
We will maintain the city
as a slaughter-free place
to promote the dignity
of animal co-existence,
the mayor said in a statement.
If Seoul slaughter activity occurs again,
we will use all means to block it.
– Can make all the
difference in ending dog meat
throughout the world.
(crowd chanting)
(crowd chanting)
– [Narrator] South Korea’s
interest in eating dog meat
is declining.
A survey by Gallup Korea
found that 70% of people
will stop eating dog meat in the future.
In November 2018,
the government closed down Taepyeong-dong,
the largest dog meat slaughterhouse
in South Korea, due to
animal cruelty concerns.
South Korea’s largest dog meat market
closed down earlier this year.
The Gupo Livestock Market in
Busan sold chilled dog meat,
and offered live dogs
who were killed to order.
The market will be turned
into a public park.
Humane Society International
has helped shut down
15 dog meat farms in
South Korea since 2015.
The charity has transported
more than 1800 dogs
from the farms to shelter
and rescue partners
across the globe.
– He is from a Korean dog meat farm,
which we’ve recently worked
with to rescue all 23 dogs
off the farm.
– [Narrator] HSI also helped
the farm owners transition
to other areas of work.
– And the farmer has agreed
to close his doors for good
and transition into a
much more humane trade
of blueberry growing.
– [Narrator] Coming up,
Downton Abbey’s Lesley Nicol
is vegan for the animals.
British supermarket chain, Morrisons,
introduced a 12 inch vegan sausage roll.
The pastry weighs 466 grams,
nearly four times the weight
of a conventional sausage roll.
It’s also double the length,
earning it the name, The Vegan Foot Long.
The savory pastry features
a vegan sausage made
from soya mince.
Morrisons’ pie expert,
Steven Halford, said,
“Our original foot long sausage roll
caught the imagination of the nation,
so we’ve worked hard
to make sure everyone,
including vegans, can now
tuck in to our creation.
Sharing is optional.”
Last January, bakery chain, Greggs,
launched a meat-free version
of its classic sausage roll,
sparking a strong fan following.
Greggs reported its total
sales have leaped up by 14.1%
compared to the year’s prior 2.9%.
The vegan pastry was credited
for helping the bakery chain
top $1 billion in sales
for the first time ever.
Wendy’s restaurants in
Canada secretly launched
a burger made with a vegan meat patty.
Wendy’s hasn’t publicly
announced the burger,
and the dish is not yet on
the fast food chain’s website,
but a poster advertising
the new Plantiful Burger
cropped up outside of
a location in Toronto.
The sign showed a meaty burger alongside
the company’s once famous tagline,
– Where’s the beef?
– [Narrator] The new
poster notes, not here.
The 100% plant-based patty
is made with pea protein.
The low-key launch follows comments made
by Wendy’s CEO, Todd
Penegor, earlier this year.
During the company’s 2019
second quarter earnings call,
Penegor was asked about
the company’s interest
in plant-based protein.
“Clearly there is growth out
there in plant-based proteins,
and we believe that it is a trend
that will be here to stay.”
He added that Wendy’s
is taking a hard look
at what the options would
be for us at the restaurant.
Canada is becoming a destination
for trialing vegan meat.
In September, select McDonald’s
Canada locations trialed
the P.L.T. featuring a Beyond Meat patty.
Downton Abbey star, Lesley
Nicol, is an animal-loving vegan.
(bell chimes)
– Oh my lord, listen to that.
It’s like the cry of a banshee.
– [Narrator] The three-time
Screen Actors’ Guild
award winning actor uses
the show’s popularity
to shine a light on animal charities.
Nicol plays Mrs. Beryl Patmore,
the cook on the ITV and PBS period-drama,
and in the 2019 film of the same name.
Outside of acting,
she is a dedicated vegan animal advocate
and an ambassador for the
charity, Animals Asia.
– This is not an industry with a future.
It can’t be. People are too aware now.
– [Narrator] Nicol went
vegan when the show ended
in November 2015.
Last September,
Nicol spoke to the food
and cooking magazine,
Rachael Ray Every Day,
about working on the show
and revealed that she was surprised
by how much she enjoys being vegan.
Nicol explained that at first,
she believed veganism
sounded like a punishment
or a life sentence for
anyone who is a foodie.
Her perspective has changed, though.
– And then suddenly I made the connection
that it was a bit weird that
I’m standing up speaking
for animals and then going
home and eating them.
That doesn’t make any sense.
I mean, I have two dogs.
Would I eat my dogs?
No, I wouldn’t.
And they’re not any different.
– [Narrator] Nicol
shares a love for cooking
with her character, the
perfectionist, Mrs. Patmore.
She contributed a vegan strawberry torte
to supermarket ASDA’s
magazine, ASDA Good Living.
She gushed over her plant-based adaptation
of beef bourguignon.
I made bean bourbuignon, Nicol
told Rachael Ray Every Day.
It has loads of herbs and red wine in it.
And just beans instead of beef.
It was really, really good.
That’s it for today.
