Animals & Morals

My The Animals Report (Penguin, 1982) is available in some libraries.

My defence of deer hunting is available here. It is 120 kb - so rather a slow download, I'm afraid.

My "Fur and Freedom: A defence of the fur trade" is available as a free download, see Books.

Here, also, are various articles on animal issues - including one on the Beauty and the Beast theme.

My position is that animals do not have inherent rights, but then neither do people. Rights are a matter of what civilised people and states accord one another. Civilisd people feel they have obligations to animals: this is an observable feature of our lives. But the details of the obligation are a matter of legitimate discussion: for my part I see little moral harm in killing animals, or farming or hunting them.
