Thursday Night Animals! Animals Have Feelings, Too – Be Humane

Animal-Odd-Couples.jpgThat’s the message as Detroit Public TV (Channel 56) presents three Thursdays (April 4, 11, and 18) with six of your favorite animal shows.  Also watch for DPTV’s one-minute Be Humane messages including six new ones around these and other programs. 

This Thursday, April 4:

When animals lose their mothers, unlikely cross-species relationships happen – like a chimp bottle-feeding a tiger cub. NATURE explores the phenomenon. @ 9 pm

Echo, the elephant matriarch, was the subject of many NATURE films and the leader of a carefully studied herd of elephants in Africa. This film pays tribute. @ 10 pm
