Animals and humans have co-habited the earth since the beginning. Eating meat and using animals for Human Resources has also been around for quite some time. Today the world is a very different place and animals seem to be at the mercy of our consumeristic needs. Gene Baur is the founder of Farm Sanctuary which rescues, rehabilitates, and provides lifelong care for animals who have been saved from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses. Today we talk about the power of a plant-based diet and how fast food chains are now offering vegan options. For example, Burger King is rolling their new impossible Whopper! And he tells us about some of the animals that Farm Sanctuary has recently rescued.
