Melissa in the Morning: Desmond’s Army

Desmond’s Army is an animal advocacy group fighting for justice and legislative change when it comes to animal cruelty. We spoke with the organization’s president, Zilla Cannamela, specifically about the case of two German Shepherds killed in Ridgefield last year. But also, we discussed loopholes in Connecticut laws protecting animals. ((00:00))

Paul Pacelli of Connecticut Today weighed in on the conversation explaining why it’s being eliminated and whether it’s a good idea. ((13:09))
