Sports and animals: Footballs, baseballs, and much sporting equipment is constructed from slaughtered animals. Are there alternatives? What about the use of live animals as mascots? We also get our first glimpse at the future of aquatic show parks with developers of animatronic dolphins, sharks, and whales.
The post Animals and Sports / Animatronics appeared first on WWDB-AM.

The Other Animals, hosted by Laurent Levy, is Philadelphia’s only radio show covering all things animal related that looks at the fascinating and inconsistent way humans deal with and impact non-humans. Each week we explore a different topic in depth.
