An uncompromising take on the fur trade in Britain by the father of the animal welfare movement in that country. The booklet draws comparisons between animal traps and human crucifixion, and points out that otherwise perfectly respectable people have throughout history had "blind spots" to extreme cruelty happening around them and even under their direction -- e.g., slavery, the Holocaust, etc. -- much as British fur-wearers do.

Scarce. OCLC records only three copies at the British Library and one at NYPL.
