Howard Stern Show: Korean Animal Protection Society

Today (12/21/04) on the Howard Stern Show (radio station WXRK, 92.3 in NYC) the guests were Cathy Campoli of the Korean Animal Protection Society and someone from International Aid for Korean Animals. Websites for both groups were provided on the air.

There were extensive discussions about the difference between dogs and cats, and cows and chickens, much of it favorable and enlightening.  (Of course the usual moronic comments were thrown in).  Devastating descriptions of how dogs and cats are 'prepared' for food (electrocuted, beaten, etc), how their meat has appeared in this country.

Stern and all his cohorts sincerely offered their agreement that animals raised for food should be treated humanely and not be tortured (without one single joke, surprisingly).  Stern cited the cruel treatment of 'veal.'  The ethical difference between eating companion animals and 'livestock' were raised; Stern offered that cows and pigs were smart, as smart as dogs.  

Though the Stern show is (understandably) problematic, it is a very popular show; and it is my personal belief that discussions about how that slab of grey flesh got to the dinner plate are worthwhile if they are at all serious; Most animal flesh is consumed with no mention of the silent victims - and I don't like 'silent.'
