In Episode 37 of Paw & Order, Camille and Peter catch up on the six horse deaths in Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races (get ready for a lengthy discussion of whether rodeo events are illegal), a great column on why the Stampede needs to ditch animal events, golf course staff running down Canada geese with a golf cart in Edmonton, the fur industry’s paid protesters in California, and the CFIA’s effort to quash a lawsuit about cruel horse transport practices.
Camille also sits down with law professor Jodi Lazare of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University, for chat about the upcoming Canadian Animal Law Conference and its stellar line-up of speakers.
This episode’s heroes are a group of law professors (led by University of Toronto professor Angela Fernandez) who filed an amicus brief in the Oregon case of Justice the horse—seeking a groundbreaking court ruling that a horse can sue the woman who abused him. The well-deserved zero is a Montreal horse carriage owner who was fined for forcing a horse to work in extreme heat.
