It's official. Monsanto Corporation is out to own the world's food supply, the dangers of genetic engineering and reduced biodiversity notwithstanding, as they pig-headedly set about hog-tying farmers with their monopoly plans.

We've discovered chilling new evidence of this in recent patents that seek to establish ownership rights over pigs and their offspring. One way or another, Monsanto wants to make sure no food is grown that they don't own -- and the record shows they don't care if it's safe for the environment or not. Monsanto has aggressively set out to bulldoze environmental concerns about its genetically engineered (GE) seeds at every regulatory level.

Thailand's revered national symbol, the elephant, may face a new threat of extinction: being poached not just for their tusks, but for their meat.

Two wild elephants were found slaughtered last month in a national park in western Thailand, alerting authorities to the new practice of consuming elephant meat "The poachers took away the elephants' sex organs and trunks ... for human consumption," Damrong Phidet, director-general of Thailand's wildlife agency, told The Associated Press. Some meat was to be consumed without cooking, like "elephant sashimi," he said.

A Ledyard farmer has recruited powerful government allies in his drive to get Connecticut to become the first state to require labeling of genetically modified foods.

Burns wants genetically modified fruits and vegetables labeled, including foods shipped into Connecticut. The most important issue is "the public's right to know," Burns said. California is considering such labeling, and congressmen from Maine and Vermont are supporting federal legislation known as House Bill 3553. Labeling efforts are being stymied nationally by St. Louis, Mo.-based Monsanto Co., Burns said.
