Several years ago, a story by Panthera’s CEO, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, entitled ‘Man and Beast’ was aired during ‘The Moth’s Radio Hour’ - an acclaimed, New York-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. Immediately featured on ‘The Best of the Moth’ compilation CDs, this moving story highlighted Dr. Rabinowitz’s childhood struggle with stuttering and the solace he sought in speaking to animals.
