Indeed, the most extraordinary examples of people taking retribution against
animals seem to have been almost totally forgotten. A few years ago I lighted on
a book, first published in 1906, with the surprising title, The Criminal Prosecution
and Capital Punishment of Animals, by E. P. Evans, author of Animal Symbolism
