The emotional lives of animals and children with Dr. Karen Davis

The emotional lives of animals and children with Dr. Karen Davis

December 20, 2014


Dr. Karen Davis, Ph.D. founder of United Poultry Concerns, a nonprofit organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl including a sanctuary for chickens in Virginia joins eHealth Radio and the Animal Health & Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Karen Davis discuss the following:

  • You just were a panelist in New York talking about Where Did Our Compassion Go? 
Children, Adults and the Loss of the Human-Animal Bond and you wrote a book review on a similar subject – the emotional lives of animals and children. This is a very important subject. Can you tell us more about it?
  • What happens between childhood and adulthood that causes most children to outgrow their primal delight in and empathy with animals and become detached, callous and indifferent toward them? 
  • You regard farmed animal sanctuaries as vitally important for the animals, the caregivers and the public, who otherwise have little or no way of meeting and learning about chickens, turkeys, cows, pigs, goats and other animals. Can you explain your thoughts about that?
  • Your review of William Crane’s book, The Emotional Lives of Animals and Children includes the thoughts of educators, psycho-analysts and ethologists. Would you recommend this book for parents?

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Susan Tellem discuss the following:

  • This month children will be enjoying another new edition of the extremely popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.  That’s a lot of kids seeing the movie who might demand that their parents buy them a live turtle.  So what’s the problem?
  • Parents, trying to please their children, purchase live turtles which end up languishing in tanks.  That is a sad existence for a turtle.  But there is a bigger problem…salmonella.
  • Turtles carry salmonella which can make a child, the elderly and those who are immune suppressed very, very sick and can even kill them.  Are there laws banning the sale of turtles?
  • What are the symptoms of salmonella?
  • What are your recommendations for parents whose kids want them to buy a turtle?


Duration: 13:11
