Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired September 7th, 2014 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Every year here in Alberta, the very controversial subject of the wild horse cull comes up, with very vocal participants on both sides of the debate. Some feel that the cull is a natural and needed part of managing Alberta’s horse population, while many animal activists feel that it is an outdated and unnecessary exercise.
This week we’ll speak to the founder of an Alberta horse rescue group who not only fights for the protection of wild horses, but also provides an option to families that find themselves unable to take care of a horse.
Speaking of animal rescues, Alberta has a number of fantastic ones and we’ll also speak to the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society about some of the progress they’ve made this year in helping animals find loving homes, and we’ll hear about a fun and important fund raising event they’ve got coming up in a couple of weeks.
And of course, we’ll ask Dr. Wendy your questions!
