Two great guests appeared on this show. First, CT State Representative, Diana Urban, joined Lori to Discuss new legislation she is sponsoring. HB 6690 would place a legal advocate (law student or lawyer) for animals in courtrooms, in cases where abuse or neglect has occurred. This would be a huge development, and Lori voiced her strong support for the measure. In addition to many other efforts to help animals, Urban is working on HB 6465, which concerns animals assisted therapy. Ms. Urban proved herself to be a very passionate advocate for animals, and we strongly suggest interested listeners get to know her work.
Then, Action for Animals’ Eric Mills came on to discuss the anticipated cruelty at this year’s California State Fair. Unless we can stop it, animals from all over the state will be transported, while pregnant, in small crates to Sacramento, so they can give birth in view of the onlookers. Make sure to listen in and then to contact Rick Pickering, CEO of the California State Fair.
California State fair 1600 Exposition Blvd. Sacramento, CA 95815.
The phone number is (916) 263-3000.
Or contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him not to permit gestation crates at the fair.
