Manage episode 318307286 series 2655563
This week Anna is joined by Rick Akers who talks about why he wants Justice For Reggie - a yellow Labrador pup who tragically died only a few days after he was brought home. A victim of the unscrupulous and callous puppy farming trade , little Reggie had short life and a painful death. Rick launched a petition to stop sales of animals online, at least to ensure traceability and accountability. Discussed in Parliament a month ago, he updates us on progress spearheaded by Government involving DEFRA, advertising standards, and welfare organisations. The question remains: should living sentient beings be bought and sold over the internet?
