We all know it goes on, but probably most of us turn a blind eye to it. In a highly readable book Terry takes us through many examples of animal abuse from around the world covering many different species - monkeys, rhinos, dogs, horses, leopards, birds....This is a moving account of his and others efforts to catch and prosecute the abusers. It goes into detail about the various covert operations, some of which succeed and some fail. It is easy to read and contains a few humorous recollections amongst the stories of abuse. I learnt a great deal about animals, abuse and animal welfare issues by reading this book and would recommend it to anyone.
