#44: Animal Law in Austria, with Martina Pluda

Animal Justice 23 November 2019 4

share close

November 22, 2019

In Episode 44 of Paw & Order, Peter interviews Martina Pluda, animal law scholar and head of Four Paws International Austria. Martina recently spoke at the Canadian Animal Law Conference about some of the incredible legal progress for animals that she has made in Austria and Europe, and her interview is a must-listen. (But be warned, Canadian listeners will be envious of how much easier it is to pass new laws in Austria than it is here at home!)

As always, there’s a lot in the news. Peter & Camille discuss disturbing new legislation introduced in Alberta that would impose harsh fines on farm trespassers and serious infringe on undercover investigations, and rumours that similar legislation is coming in British Columbia. Plus, the hosts share their thoughts on media bias in coverage of vegan parenting, in the wake of a news story about the tragic death of a child who allegedly starved to death. But there’s some good news, too—a new bill introduced in Ontario would do away with the province’s pit bull ban!

This episode’s hero is the state of Mississippi, which is adopting common sense labeling laws for plant-based meat and milk products. The zero is a man convicted and sentenced in a sad dog abuse case in Duncan, British Columbia.
