The pig who sang to the moon

(Friday, Nov. 7, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- From a news release:

As Napolean the Pig said, “All animals are created equal, but some are created more equal than others!” And so we ask, “Do the animals we raise for food enjoy the same emotional life as we who raise them?”

This Saturday at 9AM Pacific, the Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts Jeffrey Masson, author of “The Pig Who Sang to the Moon,” for a conversation about the emotional life of farm animals.

(Listen here: http://www.metrofarm.com/index.asp?cat=40088 )

Topics will include evidence that suggests animals do indeed experience emotions like love and hate; what kinds of emotions animals might experience while being raised in modern food production systems; and whether the realization of these emotions might affect the ways we raise animals for food.

Listeners are invited to call the program on KFRM, KGET, KGOE, KMPH, KNTK, KOMY, KSCO or TRUTH RADIO with questions and comments at 800-624-2665, or log them to the discussion page at http://www.metrofarm.com .
