More dogs than kids?

This week on Sound Effect, stories about animals. We learn how one vet treats dogs who eat marijuana, and meet a pet bird who enjoys an unusual amount of freedom. Then we travel with a park ranger who is on a mission to make Tacoma's raccoons wild again, and hear dispatches from a 20th century war that pitted monkey against monkey. Finally, we hear why a Seattle scientist has spent three decades studying a colony of arctic birds, and we meet a very stubborn dead cat.

"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by 88-5's Gabriel Spitzer.
