#58: Dr. Marc Bekoff Talks Animal Sentience

Animal Justice 27 June 2020 5

June 26, 2020

This episode is dedicated to animal advocate Regan Russell, who was tragically run over and killed by a transport truck bringing pigs to be killed the at Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario. Regan regularly attended vigils outside the slaughterhouse with the Animal Save Movement, and was protesting Ontario’s ag gag laws the day she was killed.

Hosts Peter & Camille spend the first part of the show discussing Regan’s heartbreaking and unnecessary death, her long and incredible history of standing up for animal rights and other social justice issues, the police investigation and potential charges that could be brought, safety risks at Fearmans caused by aggressive truckers, and a constitutional challenge to ag gag law Bill 156.

Camille & Peter also analyze recent reports that 38 dogs arrived dead at Toronto Pearson Airport in a shocking shipment of 500 puppies, and a legal victory for former B.C. conservation officer Bryce Casavant, who was fired in 2015 after he refused orders to shoot two healthy bear cubs.

In the main segment, Camille speaks with renowned biologist and animal behaviour expert Dr. Marc Bekoff about animal sentience, who rips apart claims that animals can’t think or feel, recently from farm lobby group the Ontario Federation of Agriculture.

This episode’s hero is Regan Russell, and the zero is is the government in Western Australia for letting animals suffer during overseas export.
