Our guest tonight is Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation, Equine Mgr. of Todd Mission Ranch (TMR Rescue) & founder of Wild Burro Protection League.
Marjorie will report on the 2016 Donkey Welfare Symposium that was held at Cornell University, in Ithaca, NY, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2, 2016. Marjorie was extremely disturbed that at the end of one discussion, a large animal rescue expert promoted slaughter as one form of “humane euthanasia”.
Marjorie will tell you about new and interesting information on donkeys, including the presentation by author Cate Folsom, who describes her book about Smoke, a therapy donkey for veterans. Smoke’s life brought value to donkeys worldwide and focused attention on equine assisted therapy for veterans.
