The horrors of FOIE GRAS

 37 million geese and ducks are used and slowly, horrifically killed for a "delicacy" known as 'Foie Gras' annually, which is in essence a fatty and diseased liver. The practise of Foie Gras has been banned in 17 countries for its cruelty but the practise of force feeding geese and ducks under horrible conditions is still continuing. Wild Time talked to Fiona Munro who is doing everything in her power to fight it.

LISTEN HERE to the conversation.

What's in your drink??

As stated on : "It might seem weird at first, but your favourite drink might have more than just alcohol in it.

Brewmasters, winemakers, and distillers may include animal ingredients in their products directly, or they might use them in the processing and filtration. When making the product, dairy, honey, and other things (including, in one case, a whole chicken dropped in the tank) are ingredients in the final recipe." -

Wild Time talked to Barnivore's Jason Doucette about their page and their work.

This is also very appealing to non-vegans

Lately "Mixcloud", where many of our interviews can be found, seems to have severe problems. Often times we can't upload footage and just today we couldn't even send them an email to let them know.

Since May 2012 we were therefore uploading some shows on pod-o-matic, where we are now running out of free space.

We have now decided to get a PRO ACCOUNT on pod-o-matic.

Since we are not funded by anyone and since we are spending a lot of time and money on our programs, we are appealing to our dear listeners and supporters to donate to us (see paypal button the upper right hand side on this blog) so that we can purchase a subsricption.

Thank you!!

WILD TIME talked to PAWS chairperson Manuela Tague about the situation in Kuwait.

Focussing on Asia

Over the years WILD TIME has spoken to many organisations and individuals in or about Asia and our footage truly reflects the courage and compassion of the people who work for the rights and welfare of animals in their respective countries.

Still, there often are many racist remarks about specific countries or "the Asian" as such on social netweork sites or under links and pctures.

WILD TIME never makes excuses for highlighting cruelty wherever it may happens BUT it is very important and only fair to highlight not only what is actually happening in Asia but also to show people and indeed interview the people that fight for animals in Asia.

 For the purpose of making browsing easier whe have listed our Asia - related interviews on a specific page.
