Jan Creamer is a superhero of a new form, rescuing animals throughout the world.
The circus has been a quintessential family attraction for generations. With elaborate outfits and awe-inspiring tricks, circus animals appear happy. But inside their cages, and hidden from the eyes of the public, their lives are comprised of suffering and pain.
Jan Creamer says that she has made it her lifelong mission to save these animals. With her organization, Animal Defenders International (ADI), she has rescued circus animal in Latin America, monkeys from testing laboratories, and Europe’s oldest elephant.
American actress Alexandra Paul, best known for her role in the hit TV series “Baywatch,” is a staunch supporter of ADI’s efforts to promote animal rights and put an end to animal cruelty around the world.
Paul is a longtime advocate of animal rights and makes a distinction between animal rights and animal welfare. Animals, she says, have rights and should not suffer for the purpose of human entertainment or so-called “scientific testing.”
On this week’s episode of Full Frame, Jan Creamer and Alexandra Paul sit down with Mike Walter to discuss how every one of us can make an impact in ending the suffering of animals for human entertainment and testing.
