Animal Rights is ‘The social justice movement of the 21st century,’ says ‘Unchained’ Jane

Jane interviewed Doug Honnold /Earth Justice in 2012 concerning Wyoming’s fight for a predator zone in the state, where wolves could be killed 24/7.

She was the only MSM journalist who covered the wolf persecution from their delisting in 2009 until she left HLN. Thank you Jane for being a voice for the voiceless, not only wolves but for all animals. You are one of my heroes.

  2. We were listening/watching Jane when she stood up for wolves. Even before this, I liked her thinking and her voice.


  3. Thanks, Jane. And we all must stand together in the struggle for animal rights.


  4. You go girl. You have an army behind you.
