Update on Temple Grandin’s visit

5 09 2015

The talk last week ended up being cut short – the protesters outside had such loud megaphones that Temple could not be heard, so she left the hall and went out to reason with them. This did not work (!). So that was that.

I have no problem with people wanting more radical solutions than the animal welfare ‘tweaks’ we specialize in here, but to not let someone voice a different view seems rude and primitive. Also, sad as it may be, our approach is more likely to actually effect lasting change.

Andrea should have turned up and shouted at them to be sensible.
