Gary Smith on an L.A. protest in which activists temporarily shut down Farmer John: A plant that kills 6000 pigs a day

In this episode, you’ll have an opportunity to meet Gary Smith, a long time animal activist and owner of The Thinking Vegan blog. You’ll hear his first-hand account of the protest in Los Angeles that we talked about on our last show, where activists temporarily shut down the Farmer John plant: A facility that kills 6000 pigs a day. You’ll also hear why a Florida businessman spent the weekend in a cage at Miami-Dade Animal Services, and why some activists allowed themselves to be branded with the number “269.” And, you’ll learn how firefighters saved the life of an unconscious border collie named Leah after a house fire. Plus, we give you some tips on veganizing your Halloween holiday.

And, of course, we highlight the latest News from the Vegan Frontier, let you know about vegan related happenings in and around Central Oregon, and more!
