6:15 pm
chickens are supposed to do. >> reporter: but a group called neighbors opposed to backyard slaughter says they are worried urban farmers with less experience might end up slaughtering animals in an inhumane way. >> it's really difficult to kill an animal. and it's inherently violent to kill anyone. and the city of oakland should not be supporting more violence in an already violent city. >> reporter: kitty says she learned how it do it from professionals at a farm in sebastopol. >> probably up there i slaughtered or helped slaughter maybe 400 animals? so i don't consider myself an amateur. >> reporter: a planning department spokesman says there is confusion over existing laws. some seem to indicate it's okay to slaughter animals, others seem to say it's illegal. public hearings to help clarify the rules are expected to begin next month. in oakland, joe vazquez, cbs 5. bullying is a major problem with schools all around the country but an eye-opening new study is shedding new light on
6:16 pm
the real reasons kids might terrorize their peers. researchers interviewed more than 700 students. they found that very often, aggressors are also victims of bullying. sociologists call it social combat. >> pretty much a race to the top. by getting to the top you are one of the important people of your school and that's the reason why bullying occurs. >> the study found that the higher kids get on the social ladder, the more aggressive they become. but they also become for victimized. you have probably heard of lemon heads or even sour warheads. but when you hear pot heads, candy might not be the first thing that comes to mind. it's one of several marijuana- themed confections showing up in bay area stores though. and as mike sugerman reports, it's leaving a bad taste for some people. >> reporter: among the candy being sold in stores and malls these days are these. >> pot heads. >> pot heads. >> pot heads. >> reporter: they are called

6:38 pm
michael often wonders if the charities looking for donation by mail are legit. after receiving postcards like this from united breast cancer foundation he asked consumerwatch to investigate a few red flags. >> they might have an aol account or just a post office box for the address of the charity. they put a disclaimer not associated with a more well known charity. >> reporter: the biggest red flag he couldn't find a website and the charity didn't show up on aggregate sites like charity navigator.com. >> you shouldn't have to be sherlock holmes to find out who the organization is and what they do. >> reporter: the better business bureau says you shouldn't donate until now exactly how much the charity donates. finding financial statements should be easy thanks to websites like charity navigator and the bbb's give.org but we couldn't find the united breast cancer research foundation on either. we did find their records through the attorney general showing a profit of $10,000
6:39 pm
last year. but we could find no records of any donations. >> do your homework, yeah. >> reporter: robert brenneman from san francisco's project open hand urges people to do their research so they don't waste money or questionable charities. >> because there are so many good nonprofits out there who need your support. >> reporter: he suggests looking for charities like his that give at least 80% back to the program. as for michael, he is taking it one step further. >> i'd rather give my charity to charities that i know and are familiar with. >> reporter: the united breast cancer research foundation could not provide us with copies of its financials but claims it gives 100% of its proceeds to charity. it's not affiliated with the well known breast cancer research foundation. and that's a perfect example of why the bbb warns pay special attention to those charity names because one word can make all the difference in trying to search for them under charity navigators and all those
6:40 pm
websites, we found three or four different charities with almost identical names. it really can catch you by surprise. >> right. and maybe that's the intent for some shady organization not implying that these are. >> reporter: in some cases definitely not implying that's the case here but in some cases the bbb says there are charities out there that in fact try to copy names, you know, just one word off. >> julie watts, thank you. japan wants your business. so it's willing to fly you there for free. the japanese tourism agency is looking to bolster the nation's economy following the march earthquake and tsunami. so it's offering free airfare to 10,000 foreigners. tourism dropped significantly since the disasters. online applications for the free flights are expected to open up in april. the agency would select candidates by summer. today san francisco mayor ed lee joins city leaders in golden gate park to launch a
