I’m sure you remember our interview with Simone Reyes last summer, Episode 56 Season 6 - The Only Animal Activist In Country Music. But I had to ask her to come back on the show when I started following the story of the Manning Beef cows that broke out of the slaughterhouse in Pico Rivera and tried to run to safety. Simone is a 25+ year vegan and has been a grassroots animal rights activist for most of her adult life. Simone traveled to Taiji, Japan as a Sea Shepherd Cove Guardian to report on and document the atrocities of the dolphin drives. She has also been honored by Mercy For Animals for the work she has done to put the plight of farm animals in the public's consciousness. Simone has been instrumental in negotiating the release of several cows out of a local slaughterhouse in Los Angles and getting them into the sanctuary. PETA's Animal Rahat Sanctuary in India was officially given a new name "Simone’s Place" in honor of Simone's tireless dedication to the animal rights cause. Simone has authored three books and has recently embarked on a career as a country singer. She resides in Laurel Canyon with her rescued cat Bardot.
