Lion Cubs, Bull Taming Festival 1-24-18

Jan 25, 2018

Tina Evangelista-Eppenstein talks about the recent disclosure and criticism of the Swedish zoo- Boras djurpark – euthanizing 9 healthy lion cubs since 2012. Tina also shows video of the recent Jallikattu (bull-taming) Festival in India where men jump on bulls to “control” them to win prizes. Even though no bulls are ever killed, is this abusive toward animals? Watch the video and you decide.

Janine Choplick, Humane Officer for Hillside SPCA, joins Tina to discuss the necropsy reports on the 2 deceased/ frozen horses found in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania on January 2nd. Janine also talks about the leads they have on the person(s) who dumped these two young severly emaciated horses along Girard Manor Road near Ringtown on a bitter cold night. Hillside SPCA is offering a $1000 reward for a tip leading to an arrest in this tragic case.
