Sir, - The Revd Professor
Martin Henig echoes the belief of many Christians (
Letters, 31 May) that we should be learning to live in harmony
with creation rather than trying to master it. His thoughtful,
well-informed, and inspiring words were particularly poignant in a
week when the shameful badger culls began.
We must seek more powerful
ways to be a voice for non-human animals suffering in factory
farms, laboratories, sport, the pet trade, and the entertainment
industry. In the case of the mass slaughter of our badgers, where
these marvellous creatures are being used as scapegoats for bad
dairy-farming practices, adopting a diet less reliant on dairy
produce is one way to start.
