Will Coggin is the Director of Research at the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) where he focuses his research on animal rights and environmental issues. Coggin is a frequent critic of radical activists who seek to take choices away from Americans and put farmers out of business, such as the deceptively named Humane Society of the United States or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. In particular, he is irked by the arrogance of loud-mouthed ideological activists who claim to know animals’ interests more than veterinarians, farmers, and others who have spent their entire lives around these animals.
Coggin has been a contributor to numerous print and broadcast media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, the Mark Levin Show, and others. He grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from the College of William & Mary. As a spokesman on animal issues, he would like to state he is a cat person.
