Traffic Jam: The Week Ending February 17

This week, the VN editors give you the best of the internet—four links (and one tweet!) at a time.

1. A French bulldog adopts orphaned baby wild boar piglets. The world says “aww!”

2. Food & Wine magazine’s March issue featured vegan food galore! Give us the Vegan Enchiladas and Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting, please.

3. And this week in fascinating news, “Why Birth Control is as Important as a Climate Treaty or Food Aid.” Just read it.

4. Vegansaurus figured out why Pinterest was created. It’s so that we can all keep track of the vegan food at Trader Joe’s.

5. And for our Tweet of the Week, Charlotte Makoff shares a Mardi Gras miracle! “@VegNews @vegansaurus vegan King Cake at Whole Foods in New Orleans!”—@Charlottemakoff
