    Animal Abuse (The Animal Cruelty Episode) First Airing

    in Pets

    This episode was originally scheduled to air on Saturday, September 20th, but due to scheduling conflicts, it will air first on Friday, September 19th at 10:00PM.  We will rebroadcast this Friday night show in our normal Saturday time slot for those of you unable to listen on Friday.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Will will be back next Saturday at our usual time.  Thanks for listening!


    The subject of animal abuse is never a pleasant topic, but is one that none-the-less, needs to be addressed.  There seems to be more and more news stories about innocent animals being abused, hurt, or killed at the hands of humans.  What can we do to stop this awful behavior?  Who typically commits these crimes?  Youths or adults?  Why do these crimes occur?  What are some of the less obvious signs that an animal may be being subject to abuse?  Join hosts J and D as they explore this topic in an effort to spare all animals from the devastating effects of animal cruelty.  Saturday, September 20th, 5PM, CT.

    Voices Carry for Animals # 39

    in Current Events

    Hosted by Debbie Dahmer


    Guest: Matt Dominiguez-  Public Policy Manager for the Humane Society of the United States Farm Animal Protection Campaign..


    GAG ORDER   With "ag gag" bills, Big Ag seeks to stifle reform


    Inside windowless barns, sows chewed the bars of their gestation crates, confined so tightly that they couldn’t even turn around. Brown puddles had formed from a diarrhea outbreak. And piles of dead piglets were being gutted—so that their intestines could be fed to their mothers.


    These images would have remained hidden there in Owensboro, Kentucky, if HSUS undercover investigators hadn’t videotaped the dark reality. It was hard to watch, but critical: The feeding of pigs to pigs violated state law. Other practices seemed to violate human decency.


    “At the end of the day,” an investigator reported, a sow “started making the worst sound I have heard since I started working [here]. I ran to her and she had gotten her nose in between the leverage bar that opens and closes the feed trough and a bar on her cage. … [She] scraped her nose about an inch long [leaving] her mouth bleeding.”


    If proposed “ag gag” laws are passed, moments like these will stay concealed from the American public. Introduced in state legislatures around the country the last few years at the behest of the meat, dairy and egg industry, the bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing by making it illegal to take video or photos on factory farms or to seek employment for the purpose of exposing abuse and food safety problems. They also sometimes require mandatory reporting with impossibly short timelines so that whistleblowers must “out” themselves and no pattern of abuse can be documented.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1080

    in Self Help

    Tonight's was originally planned to be a show dedicated to a special guest. But instead there was a robust discussion of a variety of topics, chiefly about the how media covers (and doesn't cover) the issues of child abuse and trauma. We also talked about the important role played by reliable government statistics. Criticism of how media and government presentations was directed at our ability as a group to impress upon the general public that the issues we cover, child abuse and trauma, are as important to them as almost anything else we consider a priority to address in America. Bill Murray, NAASCA founder, was joined by Carol Levine from New Jersey, our cio-host, and by Max "from Montana." Tonight's show featured NAASCA panelist's thoughts and ideas about how to engage the public and provide resources, services and programs to anyone with an interest in fighting against child abuse and trauma.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1079

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: "Breaking The Bonds of Parental Alienation and Systemic Abuse" Nothing stirs up passions more than the controversy generated when parents are at war over the custody of a child. With the pathological 'win-lose' mentality of our family courts and CPS increasingly abducting and witholding children from loving parents to support the many industries that feed off commodifying our children, the system is aiding and abetting abuse, and reaping the financial rewards at the expense of our children and families. Join us as we speak with parents and advocates Keith Marsolek, Carolyn MacCloud and Marcie Harding who will be sharing their heartbreaking and frankly outrageous stories of alienation enabled by this system. Learn the steps they are taking to fight this devastating injustice both for themselves and others who are facing this brutal and overwhelming situation. We are also pleased to welcome back panelist, advocate and author Robin Karr, who's own incredible story remains one of the most corrupt and cruel examples of judicial terrorism we have ever encountered. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com
