Humane Talk #8018 (5-12-2014)

Humane Talk (5-12-2014) #8018: An encore of Tracie and Wayne’s discussion of the biggest victories for animals in 2011, such as an agreement between The HSUS and a major egg industry group to phase out barren battery cages for hens, as well as good news on pet rescue and shark finning; suggestions for New Year’s resolutions to adopt a humane diet, discussing how the choices we make when we sit down to eat make a big difference for animals and how adopting Meatless Mondays or buying cage-free eggs can make great resolutions any time of the year.
