    Year of the Tiger Brings No Luck to Joe Exotic, Tiger King Loses to Animals, PETA; Bear Cubs Next.

    PETA's Brittany Peet, Deputy General Counsel for Captive Animal Law Enforcement talks to Emil Guillermo about Joe Exotic's resentencing. The Year of the Tiger did not bring good luck to the Tiger King, known in real life as Joe Maldonado Passage. Convicted in a murder-for-hire scheme, Passage got his sentence reduced from 22 to 21 years. Peet talks about how the impact of the Netflix series helped PETA's work to shut down the tiger cub petting industry. She also talks about the new focus, bear cub petting, and how to stop the abuse at roadside zoos. Another success story has been Dolly the Bear, the 76th bear rescued by PETA. CALE found her at a defunct roadside zoo.

    Elon Musk's Monkey Problem; Neuralink's Bad Science

    Elon Musk's Monkey Problem; Neuralink's Bad Science

    Monkeys used in brain chip experiments by Musk-owned Neuralink were so badly abused they had to be put to death, according to documents obtained by the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Last week,PCRM filed a lawsuit to get more from UC Davis, which worked with Neuralink from 2017-2020. This is the best chance to find out more about the experiments since Neuralink has moved from UC Davis to a private facility to avoid transparency and accountabililty.
    Jeremy Beckham, a researcher with PCRM, talks with Emil Guillermo about how the brain chip idea is an old idea spun with a new fantasy, and how all of it is still relying on monkeys subjected to abusive and inhumane treatment.

    Lolita, is the light of animal lovers everywhere, is one of the oldest Orcas in captivity. Just four when she was caught off Penn Cove in Washington, Lolita was sold into the animal entertainment industry since 1970. For more than 52 years, this 20-foot animal has been confined at Miami's Seaquarium, the last 40 years without an Orca companion. In February, a whistleblower told PETA Lolita has life-threatening pneumonia. What is PETA doing about it?

    PETA Saving Animals Abandoned on the Streets of Ukraine

    PETA Saving Animals Abandoned on the Streets of Ukraine

    Animals--abandoned by private individuals who have fled their invaded country--are on the streets of Ukraine. PETA Germany has gone to the border of Ukraine and Poland to help people and their animals there. Less than a week after the Russian invasion began, more than 800,000 Ukranians have fled the country to seek safety. Some have brought their animals. But many did not.
    Now PETA Germany volunteers are going into Ukraine to save as many animals as they can, and bring them to safety.
    PETA is also giving out 40,000 pounds of dog food to make sure hungry animals can be fed.
    PETA Germany investigator Judith Peine talked with Emil Guillermo about what it's like to be at the western border of Ukraine now.

Em Echo ,

Thank you

Do not listen to the hate ratings I needed a podcast and I love this one! It is amazing whoever thinks this is bad is probably not vegan. #peta is awesome!!!

Hurry frightful ,

The World’s Most Successful Animal Rights Group

PETA gets results, from reforming barbaric cruelty in zoos to exposing the unspeaking horrors of big ag and factory farming. Notice how the white supremacist/pro-trump trolls are going after them so hard? That should you tell you something. Think about it.

NiloofarA ,

Chinchilla Torture Warehouse MN

This was an excellent interview and a difficult undercover investigation done by PETA. Most of us would not have known about the plight of chinchillas until this exposé. Thank you for calling our attention. I plan to go to the PETA site to observe the heartbreaking videos and then to take action.
