It’s the three-year anniversary of the Paw & Order podcast! Thanks so much to our listeners for tuning in and for supporting the show. You’re the reason we can continue to spread the message of animal law to the masses, and inspire much-needed change for animals.

In Episode 71, Camille Labchuk interviews Peter Brandt, the Senior Attorney for Farm Animal Litigation with the Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal protection organization. The two discuss Peter’s impactful new book, “Indefensible: Adventures of a Farm Animal Protection Lawyer”, along with his important legal work on behalf of farmed animals.

In the news, Camille and co-host Peter Sankoff discuss an investigation to determine whether an RCMP officer deliberately ran over a dog who was sitting on the roadway, an illegal shipment of suffering exotic birds who stopped at the Vancouver airport en route to Japan, a criminal investigation into Cargill slaughterhouse in High River, Alberta over a COVID-19 outbreak that killed an employee, and gorillas at the San Diego Zoo contracting COVID-19.

The Hero is the episode is everyone who is joining Veganuary and is pledging to go vegan for the entire month of January.

The Zero goes to whoever cruelly carved the word, “Trump” onto the back of an innocent manatee.
