 Dear all,

My colleague Jeremy Gans and I have written a book on the weird and wonderful history of animals and the law. Chapters One and Two have discussion of private law issues (property in animals, tortious animals) and Chapter 6 has a discussion of trusts for animals. Also features killer pigs of 14th C France.

I thought it might be of interest to at least some people on this list (several list members gave me tips re cases/articles/statutes - you’re duly thanked!).

It’s not stocked in overseas bookstores, but apparently you can order it from the publisher or from Amazon, Book Depository etc.

Hope everyone is keeping well in COVID times.

All the best, Katy
