Euthanasia Or Contraception?

The question of euthanasia versus birth control is at the center of a serious disagreement about the welfare of various species of domestic and wild animals. Recent events involving giraffes and lions in a Danish zoo introduced another level of complexity and emotion to this ongoing debate. Laura Moss, an editor and writer for Mother Nature Network who has done a substantial amount of reporting on this issue, joins us to offer insight.

Helping Animals and People with a Gentle Touch: Since 1999 The Gentle Barn animal sanctuary has been a life-saving respite for thousands of animals and a safe haven for many at-risk teens and special needs children. We speak with Ellie Laks, founder of the southern California nonprofit, who has written a new book, "My Gentle Barn," which weaves together the story of her personal journey and how the sanctuary came to be the highly regarded institution it is today.
