Peter’s back from summer vacation in Germany, and tells Camille all about the McDonalds McVegan. As always, there’s lot of animal law news, including a Toronto case challenging glue traps for mice, Tofurky’s legal challenge to discriminatory labeling laws for animal-free foods in Arkansas, and Canadian vegan restaurant Grow Your Roots being told to stop using words like “cheese” and “burger”. A notorious live sheep exporter in Australia has finally been charged with animal cruelty, and here at home, Marineland called the cops over a comedic tweet about stealing a walrus, and two Canadian zoos have been listed as among the cruelest in the world.
For our main segment, Camille and Peter discuss the summertime epidemic of dogs being left in hot cars, including the laws used to prosecuted those who do so, and the potential legal jeopardy faced by a Good Samaritan in Canada who decides to break a window to rescue a dog at risk.
This episode’s hero is the Edmonton Police for their key role in a massive Havanese puppy mill bust, and the zero is Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, who wants to re-write the Canada Food Guide to help out the cruel dairy industry.
