TALK RADIO FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS
Once again, WFL Endangered Stream Live radio talk show host and animal welfare advocate, Katia Louise, has brought to the public an informative and thought-provoking show with “Tails of Asia”, which examines the use of dogs and cats for fur and food.
Those of us who are deeply touched by animals are, by nature, sensitive people and therefore might attempt to protect our feelings by shying away from such a topic. But “Tails of Asia” host, Katia Louise, successfully approaches the unsettling subject matter with tact and compassion without discounting the importance of the issues.
Instrumental in achieving the show’s objective are the featured guests, which include Dena Jones, U.S. Program Director for the World Society for the Protection of Animals, Bill Dyer, Regional Director for In Defense of Animals, and Jill Robinson, Founder and CEO of Animals Asia Foundation. These remarkable individuals, who work tirelessly to put an end to animal cruelty around the world, are happy to share their vast knowledge of the issues in an effort to bring awareness that will motivate others to take action.
Perhaps you’ve wondered just how many dogs and cats are killed each year in Asia for their fur or their meat. Maybe you’ve curiously pondered the conditions in which these animals are kept or the methods in which they’re killed. You may have even contemplated how the fur fashion industry’s exorbitant profits are realized at the expense of unimaginable suffering by animals and the damaging impact on the environment. Ranging from the specific (how many chinchillas are killed to make one fur coat) to the general (why many Asians choose to eat dog and cat meat), “Tails of Asia” provides the answers to these and many other questions relating to the issue—answers that arm the listener with the knowledge they need in the fight for animal rights.
There were encouraging points made during the show as well. Guest Bill Dyer noted that Israeli politician Nitzan Horowitz recently made an unprecedented move by introducing a bill that would ban the fur industry entirely in Israel. Jill Robinson, who called in to the show from China, said that the tides are slowly changing there with regard to how people view animal welfare. She told of a recent incident in China in which a small, unorganized group of animal advocates broke into a facility to rescue several hundred cats from a tragic fate, and while they technically broke the law, the local authorities essentially turned a blind eye to the group’s actions and chose not to arrest them. It was well-noted by all the guests that even the smallest of victories should be celebrated as they end suffering of some animals and bring awareness to the problem. Positive changes are slowly being made as a result of the combined efforts of animal advocates world-wide.

Voice for Change-CAUSE
"I thoroughly enjoyed the program. You had a superb panel with the greatest knowledge.. they are all like walking encyclopedias. I was very impressed with the quality of the show from content to the presentation."
"What a great job Katia and her four guests did in analyzing all aspects of the horse slaughter industry, which Katia rightly accuses of practicing a "criminal level of cruelty." May the divine nobility, loyalty and goodness of the horses and their human friends overpower the lies and deceit of this sordid, greedy business and its political puppets."
"Thank you for putting this show together... I'm glad that you were able to get this panel of experts that can show the truth."
