"Loved it! I especially liked the film about the sidecar dogs! I have seen Cowspiracy twice. It's an excellent education tool. It should be shown to people that are ignorant of what is going on in the meat/dairy industry and the environment. Another eye-opener was the documentary about the government-run Wildlife Services. I have seen this one twice now also. Again, it must be shown to people who have no clue about what is going on, in this case, with government-run institutions. The movie about the goat was cute! I love goats!" -Miriam L.

EXPOSED: The USDA’s Secret War on Wildlife (Audience Choice Award)
A misnamed agency within the USDA called " Wildlife Services" has been getting away with just the opposite for almost a century: killing, maiming, and poisoning over 100,000 native predators and millions of birds each year, and harming humans and pets in the process. In this documentary, whistle-blowers go on the record showing Wildlife Services for what it really is-- an unaccountable, out-of-control, wildlife-killing machine that subsidizes corporate agriculture with taxpayer dollars. This is a must-see film for lawmakers and anyone who cares about wildlife.
