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
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.
