Some of us choose to be vegan because we feel kinship with nonhuman animals; we can relate empathically with them and therefore, we feel committed
to unfolding the layers in their behavior, emotions, and language. From this drive emerges a body of knowledge that helps us construct their inner
world. This body of knowledge thus accumulated, and when documented, told, and retold, becomes the building blocks of the discipline of
“Trans-species Psychology” – the field of psychology that studies animal cognition and emotions.
Today, the blog heartily welcomes Dr. Karen Davis, an animal advocate of such caliber. The blog had the privilege of first introducing Dr. Davis in
The Chicken Story Retold. Dr. Davis is the founder and president of United Poultry Concerns (UPC), a non-profit
organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl in food production, science, education, entertainment, and
human companionship situations. In the last three decades of her work, Dr. Davis has made enormous contributions towards the discipline of
Trans-species Psychology. Backed by empirical research data, she has written volumes about the inner world of animals in her captivating,
storytelling style. This data has been used to lobby to end animal exploitation, particularly of chickens, turkeys, and other domestic fowl; and to
appeal to people to recognize their shared sentience with animals.
Many in the USA today know her as the “chicken lady”, the “chicken rights advocate” who changed their lives for a more
enlightened and compassionate future.
