Available at Warehouse


Offers a comprehensive overview of the legislation and legal issues surrounding animals.

Written by Jordan Curnutt, Animals and the Law covers everything from the Silver Spring monkeys, subjects in the first U.S. lab raided by police where criminal charges were filed against a scientist conducting federally funded research, to sex with animals. Among the subjects reviewed are kosher and Halal food restrictions, mad cow disease and cattle cannibalism, animals in laboratories, and as entertainment--in circuses, zoos, rodeos, horse racing, cockfighting, and more. Also included are appendixes of animal organizations, cases, statutes and regulations, and an extensive bibliography.
