De passage à Montréal, la primatologue Jane Goodall a dénoncé l’élevage animal intensif qui est pratiqué dans les pays riches. S’adressant à une assemblée de vétérinaires, elle a toutefois avoué ne pas savoir comment s’attaquer à ce problème. Les travaux d’une chercheuse de l’Université McGill s’intéressant à l’élevage des vaches laitières devraient apporter certains éléments de réponse à cette vaste problématique.
