Monday, June 7, Watchdog, hosted by Karen Dawn, looked at the American Veterinary Medical Association. KPFK listeners were shocked to learn some of the practices the AVMA supports, and what animal friendly legislation it has opposed. Guests:
Karen Davis, PhD – President of United Poultry Concerns, author of Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs , who has been battling the AVMA on behalf of birds, for years.
Holly Cheever, DVM – Spokesperson for campaigns by the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights, aimed at pushing the AVMA to adopt resolutions on animal welfare.
Professor Peter Singer – Author of Animal Liberation , and president of Animal Rights International, which has been targeting the AVMA for animal unfriendly policies.
