What happens when we disrupt an ecosystem by removing predators? The outbreak of Chronic Wasting Disease in the western United States provides an all-too-real laboratory of the devastating impacts such misguided human policy wreaks. Dr. Ellen Brandell is a wildlife disease ecologist who has studied the issue up close and personal and discusses her findings with us.  Also, vaccines for your cat and dog, what are they, what do they do for your pet and for you, and when should they be given?

The post Using Wolves Against Chronic Wasting Disease 01/15/21 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.
