For this episode’s feature interview, Peter Sankoff sits down with Chris Green, executive director of the Animal Law & Policy Program at Harvard University. Established in 2015, the program gives students and scholars the skills they need to analyze and improve the treatment of animals in the legal system. Chris fills us in on the work Harvard is doing to advance animal law, and some of the incredible achievements of program graduates.
Camille and Peter also analyze the latest animal news headlines, including three monkeys who retired at Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary after a lifetime of being used in experiments, and why more monkeys deserve the same opportunity. The hosts also discuss a new break and enter charge against a Toronto activist for rescuing piglets from an industrial farm, and the future of animal law enforcement in Ontario.
Find out why a man suing over his dog’s death in a Kamloops fur trap is the hero, and the horrific beating death of an innocent coyote in Alberta gets the zero.
