Jason Baker, Sr. VP in charge of PETA Asia, talks to Emil Guillermo about the latest in Asia. PETA investigators exposed the skin trade in pythons and how they literally inflated to death. Baker provides an update on the monkey used to fetch coconuts in Thailand. Consumers should support monkey-free coconut milk from other countries. And more than a year ago, PETA saved animals from the Taal area after the volcano erupted. It is rumbling and appears to be threatening to erupt again. All while the Philippines has begun an official lockdown due to Covid.
