The Science And Magic of the Human-Animal Bond
Meet people doing important human-animal bond work
in this interview series.
This week's interview is important. My guests, Jamie Baldanza and Deb Lee Carson are making beautiful films about wild land in the US and the horses that live on them. Unfortunately, the horses’ lives are at stake because there’s a big difference of opinion as to who has the right to live on the wild land- the horses or cattle.

From time to time I am asked whether a cat can be part of a therapy animal team. Listen in to the conversation I had with Allison Hunter-Frederick of Allison Helps Cats. She's a cat behavior consultant and trainer and has a ton of good information to share.

There’s no such thing as a Big Bad Wolf. Lori Wynn, founder of Guardians of the Wolves has successfully worked with cattle ranchers to introduce non-lethal ways of keeping the wolves from harming their cattle. She is on a mission to work with more ranchers. Her Wolfdog Ambassadors teach people that they are not to be feared. And many of the wolfdogs are therapy animals! Wolves were delisted from the endangered species list and Guardians of the Wolves is also helping stop the hunt.
