Bugs and beasts before the law


Nicholas Humphrey wrote the forward for a 1987 edition of this 1906 book and elaborated it for an chapter in a book.

I think some powerful influences escaped Health and Safety laws when there weren't any and blamed it on animals.

We often act as if animals had thoughts, feelings and desires that resemble those of people. Still not a reason to give them antidepressants.
