We hear of the “rights of Man.” I wish we heard more of them than we do – and could see them observed as well as talked of. But who ever thought of an animal’s rights – the rights of a brute. We hear it spoken of as man’s duty to be kind to the brutes – but never of a brute’s right to just treatment. But why has not a brute rights. as well as man?

Nathaniel P Rogers (1875)
