I've been quite busy the past week and haven't had the opportunity to film but I've got my topics all ready to discuss.
This episode we'll be discussing three animal news stories from across the globe starting with a story about a woman charged with two counts of animal cruelty after leaving her two dogs in a hot car. Believe it or not, despite all the media attention this issue has brought up, it still happens. People are still cluelessly leaving their animals in cars while they shop, see a movie, or go out to eat. No regard for their pets or their well being as it's often excruciatingly hot out.
Next, we'll be discussing another animal cruelty bust at a chicken facility in British Columbia. A passerbyer noticed what she thought to be abuse and called police who are now investigating the incident. Two times in two weeks? Are we ready to admit there are flaws in these industries and it's time to step up and start monitoring these facilities a little more regularly. Why is it always undercovers or witnesses discovering it? Why aren't the companies seeing it and nipping it in the bud before it hits the media / police? Because they don't care and aren't watching.
Lastly we'll be discussing a horrific incident in Melbourne Australia. A kangaroo was shot at least 3 times, tied to a chair, dressed, and posed for photographs. Sickeningly, police are looking for witnesses but the sad thing is that there was definitely someone who saw and did nothing. Police said it was a public area with reasonable traffic so if that's the case, why was no one alarmed enough to call authorities? Kangaroo or not, I see people tieing anything up and doing that sort of thing, I'm alerting authorities. It's just another example of our world's disregard for animal wellbeing.
I can't wait to discuss these stories with you guys. Expect the video this weekend!
