The Question: ‘What could I write?’
As a law lecturer who teaches animal law, it is extremely common for me to get questions from students about potential paper topics. Equally often, students make outright statements, along the lines of ‘I have no idea what to write for a final paper!’ Students often think that everything worth writing has been written.
This usually makes me laugh!
In a first for New Zealand, a man has been sentenced to jail for dog fighting. He is to serve a 10 month sentence.
William Kain Campbell, a 25-year-old process worker, appeared in Porirua District Court today after earlier admitting seven charges of dog fighting and failing to seek treatment for the injured animals.
Campbell was ordered to pay reparations of $4362.47 and banned for life from owning or caring for an animal.
We are indeed “closer to animals than we sometimes think,” but this ridiculous publicity stunt does nothing to help people see that.
