Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired January 26th, 2014 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Animal cruelty and abuse has become front page news in Canada over the past couple of weeks, with several high profile cases being reported. In Calgary, the discovery of a Siberian Husky and a kitten with their muzzles taped shut (leading to their deaths) sparked outrage among pet owners and animal lovers everywhere.
In this week’s show, we focus on the topic of animal abuse and cruelty, and pull back the curtain to understand the challenges of holding animal abusers responsible, and the efforts underway to reduce the cases that happen, and to prosecute the ones that take place.
This week, we speak with Brad Nichols, Manager Of Animal Cruelty Investigations for the Calgary Humane Society, as well as Barb Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies. We also explain what Vets To Go is doing to help find the perpetrator in the Calgary case, and as always, Dr. Wendy answers listener questions.
It’s a busy – and important – show, so enjoy and remember you can submit your questions to us at http://www.vetstogoradio.com.
