#59: No Criminal Charges for Trucker Who Killed Regan Russell

Paw & Order 25 July 2020 20

July 24, 2020

Hosts Peter & Camille are back at it after a short summer vacation! There’s a lot of animal news in the headlines, so this episode breaks it down. We discuss:

  • Canadian Animal Law Conference tickets are now available!
  • Why no criminal charges were laid against the driver who ran down and killed activist Regan Russell outside Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse (and why police and prosecutors have a long history of giving the meat industry a free ride, while targeting animal advocates)
  • A class action suit against the Cargill slaughterhouse in Alberta, for letting COVID-19 run wild amongst workers
  • Animal Outlook’s lawsuit in the wake of a fish farm investigation
  • New Zealand courts throwing out secretly-recorded video evidence of animal cruelty on a dairy farm
  • A California court ruling that the state’s foie gras ban is constitutionally-compliant
  • Two guilty pleas in last year’s Alberta turkey farm occupation
  • Spain and the Netherlands killing off a million minks following COVID-19 infections

This episode’s heroes are the countless animal advocates, along with Regan Russell’s family, who took to the streets recently in a powerful demonstration, calling for an inquiry into her death.

The zero is New South Wales in Australia, which is still failing to crack down on and end cruel greyhound racing.
