Paula Sparks 1 October 2021 3

In this episode, we discuss the case for a specific crime of pet abduction. Should the criminal justice system treat the theft of companion animals in the same way as the theft of inanimate property or does the law need reform? We talk to John Cooper QC, who has been advising the pet theft campaign. 

Talking Animal Law, produced by the UK Centre for Animal Law (A-LAW), features fortnightly discussions on topical issues and ethical theories about the treatment of animals with leading experts in the fields of law, ethics and science.
