From Ann Johnson

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.
