Animal Planet Exposes Cruelty In New Investigative Series
Only losers hurt animals and Animal Planet knows it!
That’s why the cable channel is planning to launch a quarterly series of investigative documentaries, starting with a special on dogfighting in January.
The inspiration for the new show came after the special “Animal Witness: The Michael Vick Case” received extremely high ratings. Animal Planet’s Marjorie Kaplan said:
“We thought the Michael Vick special would do well, but we were blown away by how well it did out of the gate. We looked at those, as well as the success of something like ‘Whale Wars,’ and were moved the the passion our audience has for these kind of things. Rather than do them on an adhoc basis, we decided to curate a series of specials.”
The topics being covered are vast and include issues like: animal testing, the exotic pet trade, gang dogs, cloning and slaughterhouses.
Here at the Razz we think any network working hard to promote animal welfare is pretty darn sexy. What do you think? Is this the kind of show you’ll watch? Chime in and let us know if you’ll be tuning in!
