Hour 2

In his new book The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them, WAYNE PACELLE, the president of the Humane Society of the United States, speaks to the deep connection he sees between humans and animals, as well as the numerous ways that humans have betrayed this bond through widespread and systematic cruelty to animals. Pacelle discusses the increasingly activist role the Humane Society has embraced, Michael Vick’s journey from imprisoned dogfighter to animal-compassion advocate, the Humane Society’s response to Hurricane Katrina, and much more.
