Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
Episode 54: ARZone welcomes back special guest Dr. Andrew Knight.
Andrew speaks with ARZone about his work making schools of veterinary medicine aware of methods and procedures that respect the lives of other animals, he answers some questions regarding the health and diets of cats and dogs, and he tells about the incredible vegan endurance events he's participated in. Audio podcast, approx 59 minutes.
Dr. Knight is the author of the book The Costs and Benefits of Animal Experiments which examines the practice of medical testing on other animals. Andrew is an Australian born bioethicist, living in London, who is now a European Veterinary specialist in welfare science, ethics and law. He first spoke with ARZone in a podcast published in July 2012. At that time, Andrew spoke about his pending lecture tour of Peru and his eagerly anticipated world’s first ever vegan ultramarathon in Wales, which sounds like it was more like a survival adventure!
