Example text

Arluke, on the contrary, found that most of his informants preferred the notion of purposebred laboratory animals – that is, animals whose sole function in life was to serve as experimental material. This difference between the two studies is probably cultural. In the United States, where Arluke’s study was conducted, horror stories involving the discovery of stray or stolen pets being used for experiments are still commonplace and not entirely without substance (Clifton, 1992). In contrast, legislation in the United Kingdom has now rendered the use of non-purpose-bred dogs or cats for research virtually impossible.

With growing urgency, people wonder what it must be like to be a hen in a battery cage, or a chimpanzee in a laboratory testing-pen. This formulation, to ask ‘what it feels like’ to be a certain animal, is how members of the general public perceive and formulate the problem of animal welfare. In day-to-day, common-sense interaction with animals, we use a type of language which is inherently subjectivistic, psychological in character; that is, a language which indicates that we share the world with active, independent individuals who have their own, personal perspective on that world, and accordingly, their own needs, feelings and thoughts.
