208: Kill Racing, Not Horses!

Ellen Ericksen has been fighting for the animals for as long as she can remember. Although she participates in many anti-cruelty events, one of her biggest passions is protesting Del Mar's Racetrack.

174: Horses are not Machines!

With Del Mar Racing Season in full swing, Ellen Ericksen is back to talk about the horses! According to www.HorseRacingWrongs.com, as of July 2019, the beginning of the season for California, 63 horses have already been reported as dead as a result of this cruel industry, people call a "sport". Unfortunately, the reported deaths are often modest compared to the actual deaths due to under-reporting and other deceitful conduct, in order to keep numbers low, and ticket sales high.

Current stats (CA only), as of 7/24/2019:
Del Mar: 2 dead
Golden Gate Fields: 13 dead
Los Alamitos Race Course: 10 dead
Santa Anita Park: 35 dead
Alameda County Fair, Pleasanton: 3 dead

Protests every Saturday at 11:30am at Del Mar until September 3rd, 2019

156: Dying to Race

156: Dying to Race

Ellen Ericksen is a known animal rights activist here in San Diego. She's also been on the podcast a few times already to discuss Sea World as well as Del Mar racetrack (Episodes 88 and 94).

With horse racing season coming up (7/17/2019), Ellen returns to the podcast to expose some of the details behind the $100 BILLION dollar industry, including the underground horse slaughter and horse-meat trade that's happening right in our own backyards!

94: A Storyteller For The Animals

94: A Storyteller For The Animals

Ellen Ericksen, returning guest from Episode 88, dives a little deeper into the Del Mar Racetrack and exposes more of the hideous truths behind the business. With money being a key motivator, a lot of work is done to cover up what really happens on the track! Recently, there was some minor coverage for the death of horse, Bobby Abu Dhabi, but unfortunately rider Victor Espinoza has received much greater attention for his non-fatal injury. The last part of the podcast dives into the more widely known topic of Sea World.

88: Death Race

88: Death Race

What is a protest? What goes into the organization of a protest? Who gets involved? What are the laws? All of these questions, and many more were definitely on my list for guest, Ellen Ericksen. Ellen has been vegan for a really long time, and has been fighting for animals since she can remember. She's extremely knowledgable of both sides of the law; the protester's side and the cruelty-promoting business' side. Ellen has earned a reputation for causing unethical businesses to shut down, but it has all come from a place of love for the animals!

With San Diego being the home of the deathly Del Mar Races, the Del Mar Fair, Sea World and once even a slaughterhouse, Ellen (unfortunately) has no shortage of people to talk to, regarding their financial contributions that encourage the prosperity of these businesses. Many of us know why Sea World has a bad reputation, but when Ellen told me what goes on at the Del Mar Fair, I was shocked!
