CBS4’s Jennifer Santiago in Miami, the UPN33 News at 10 PM co-anchor, has made it clear that she considers what happens to animals to be very much part of news. At http://cbs4.com/pets you can see stories she has done on circus cruelty, the “distasteful delicacy” foie gras, and the Canadian seal slaughter.

Yesterday, Thursday November 16, she aired horrifying undercover footage from the Butterball turkey slaughter plant, which shows workers sitting on, and kicking, and bragging about how they abuse the turkeys. You can watch the story at the link above — it is currently at the top right hand side of the page.

Please send enthusiastic thanks to Jennifer Santiago and the CBS 4 team in Miami. Positive feedback for animal friendly coverage encourages more of it.

The show takes comments at http://cbs4.com/contact.

Yours and the animals’,
Karen Dawn
