Excerpt: “A Rat Is a Pig Is a Dog Is a Boy,” Wesley J. Smith, 2010

This is a two-page excerpt (pp. 64-65) from Wesley J. Smith’s book A Rat Is a Pig Is a Dog Is a Boy: The Human Cost of the Animal Rights Movement (Encounter Books, 2010)

In this excerpt, Smith explores the devious nature of HSUS’s legal strategies, using its crusade against Hudson Valley Foie Gras as a case study. He also examines the animal rights movement’s goal of awarding legal “standing” to animals as a way to increase the cost of raising livestock for food.
