"Wild Things": A free reception, screening, and panel discussion at the Crest

 

 

 

Wayne Pacelle, President of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has sent the following invitation:

You’re invited to a free screening of the Natural Resources Defense Council's insightful and uplifting documentary, "Wild Things," a film about the USDA Wildlife Services’ war on native carnivores. Many ranchers are rejecting the old practice of killing predators to protect livestock, and are using new technology as well as old methods of animal husbandry to coexist with these important animals.

Join HSUS California state director Jennifer Fearing on June 25 in Sacramento. Though the event is free, seats are limited. An RSVP is required; scroll to the bottom right of the film's webpage (http://www.nrdc.org/wildlife/wild-things/) to see the RSVP link. (The Sacramento link is the first of three.)

A reception (6 p.m.) precedes the film (7 p.m.), and a panel discussion follows.

Sponsored by HSUS; reservations must be made through the NRDC link above.

Optional: Let us know if you'll be joining us for dinner at Darna Middle-Eastern Restaurant, 925 K St.; drop by between 5 & 5:30.

    I unfortunately didn't make it to the dinner, but I was less than impressed with the panel and the discussions. Not one mention of what a plant-based diet could mean to predators. So much acceptance of meat eating and ranching.

      I might add that I'm a Project Coyote member and support their efforts. I'd just like to see more discussions surrounding the ethics of ranching in this debate. I care about the predators AND the farm animals!

    I was really, really looking forward to attending the event, but I wasn't feeling well all day Tuesday. I fell asleep at 5pm and didn't wake up until 9pm...then realized OOOPS! I missed all the good stuff. Does anyone know if this documentary is available online? It's not on Netflix. It is only 38 minutes long so probably it's not a DVD for sale (?) I think it was produced by National Resources Defense Council in Washington, D.C. I'm so happy that everyone loves Darna Restauruant. It was yours truly that discovered that gem of a cafe. The first time I ate there was in early May - the week they opened. The BEST time to go to Darna restauraunt is for the M-F all you can eat buffet - a gazillion vegan options - very easy for folks who eat plant based diets to enjoy and only $12.95 for finest quality food. I love the carrot salad with the "zing" of vinegar seasoning - Yum-O!

    The meetup was excellent! I somehow botched my entry and it won't let me redo. Excellent and informative movie and panel discussion. Fabulous dinner at Darna's--the food just kept on coming!

    I saw it in Nevada City, and it's very powerful. Also hopeful.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
