December 20, 2019

Welcome to the first-ever Paw & Order holiday special! Hosts Peter and Camille get into Santa mode in this episode, giving out animal law-themed “gifts” to people, animals, countries—some funny, some serious. We’ve never had more fun recording an episode!

The news doesn’t stop over the holidays, and the hosts also discuss a disappointing ruling in a horse transport case that let the CFIA off the hook; a mink farm going out of business in Newfoundland; horrific conditions exposed by animal activists at a Quebec pig farm; and a dairy farmer jailed for long-term neglect of cows.

Our final hero of 2019 is animal law scholar Will Kymlicka, who just won a $100,000 grant to examine citizenship models for animals. And the zero is Cooke Seafood Hatchery, a fish farm that won’t face animal cruelty charges despite video footage of horrific fish abuse.

As mentioned on this episode, you can find our Year In Review video here.

As always, use code PAW15 at the checkout to save 15% on your order at our sponsor Grinning Goat, Canada’s vegan fashion boutique.
