"Animal Rights, Untamed"
“If free-living animals were thought to have a claim to their territory and freedom, then finally, finally, the polluting and resource-consuming ranchers and animal farmers would meet a true challenge!”
In the new essay “Animal Rights, Untamed” Friends of Animals legal director Lee Hall continues:
There is a saying that people often somehow resemble the animals with whom they live. Perhaps we could say that people resemble the animals for whom we advocate. Those who advocate for the rights of free-living animals — which are, ultimately, the only animal rights there are — won’t be tamed.
