This show begins with Lori and Peter discussing some nifty things you can do around your home to help animals such hummingbirds and other birds. Then Darlene Kobobel, President of the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center returns to discuss the many problems related to wolf-dog hybrids, properly called wolfdogs. You will want to think twice before buying one!
Peter then welcomes Patti Nyman, from Animal Place, to talk about the Food for Thought program. This is a shelter outreach program encouraging boards to adopt compassionate dining policies for their official events. We bet you will agree that this makes perfect sense and are pleased to learn how it has grown! Has your organization adopted a vegan or vegetarian policy for their events? If not, look here!
We conclude with Dr. John Pippin, Director of Academic Affairs at Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. John begins by recounting some of PCRM’s recent noteworthy accomplishments including promoting a plant-based diet, and removing live animals from medical education and training venues. The discussion then moves to Texas, where PCRM has just filed a complaint with the State’s Attorney General against the Texas Beef Council. Dr. Pippin explains how the Beef Council has been publishing and promoting false and misleading health claims about beef products. The complaint alleges the Beef Council is violating the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act, which forbids false, misleading, and deceptive business practices, including promoting products with false benefits they do not actually have.
