WILD TIME turns 6 this month!! We premiered on February 15th 2008 on The Digital Hub FM (sadly no longer in existence) in Dublin / Ireland. Within weeks we changed from an animal welfare show to an animal rights show. Check our our humble beginnings HERE .
Six years on the world is still a very sad and violent world for many animals around the globe. This is what we've got for you this month:
04.02.2014 Animal Mutilation - in conversation with Margie Kay Animal mutilation cases are not new and have been reported for a very long time, almost always linked to sightings of UFO's and/or strange military air planes. But what exactly is happening to these animals and do we know why and who is behind it all?
11.02.2014 Cruelty Free X-mas fayre - in December 2013 WILD TIME went to the cruelty free x-mas fayre in Birmingham where we talked to many organisations from Sea Shepherd to 'Projet Primates', the latter being a more in-depth guest on a future show of ours.
18.02.2014 Projet Primates - Estelle Raballand from Projet Primates tells us all about their efforts to save chimpanzees in Africa.
25.02.2014 Live Exports in Ireland and stray dogs in Romania - after a 16-year-ban live exports came back to the Republic of Ireland in 2012 with a vengeance. In 2013 over 200 000 animals were shipped to their deaths all over the globe from Irish soil. Laura Broxson from the National Animal Rights Association, NARA for short, who has been on the show numerous times and is always a great and compassionate guest to have on the show, fills us in about how to fight the live export industry and all the difficulties that this entails.

In October we’re taking a long, hard and in-depth look at the link between animal abuse and human abuse. You may be shocked to learn just how much of a link there is. WILD TIME has talked to three people who have researched this for years, namely Malcolm Plant, Professor Philip Tedeschi and Professpr Eleonora – Gullone. Other topics this month: The Vegan Information Project (VIP) in Dublin/Ireland and the plight of the nearly extinct fire salamanders in Holland.
Don’t miss these informative shows:

15.10.2013 Romania's dogs need help -Following the death of a 4-year-old boy, supposedly through a stray dog, Romania is on a rampage to kill every stray dog in the country. Stray dogs have long been a big issue in Romania and many animal rights groups in Romania and elsewhere have criticized the cruel treatment of animals there..WILD TIME’s Thomas Janak talked to Vlad Dumitrescu, a civil engeneer in Bucarest, who has a very sensible view of his countries’ current actions against dogs.The conversation touches on many things including hysteria, corruption and possible solutions. It also shows how divided the country is and how many people in Romania do care about the stray dogs and are doing a lot to help. Help also comes from further afield. Wild Time talks to Izza Siebert from “Gegen Tierquaelerei” who hails from Germany. Izza and others of her group are currently organizing numerous trips to Bucharest to not only feed many of the dogs there but also to get some of them out of Romania and into new homes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
She also tells us about the many difficulties helpers are facing and they also need financial support in order to rescue and feed dogs.

03.09.2013 Blackfish is the new documentary by Gabriela Cowperthwaite that examines the death of Sea World trainer Dawn Brencheau and the life of Tilikum, the killer whale, who has been involved in three deaths.

We talked to Gabriela about the documentary and also talked to people who have seen the film.
