Animals and entertainment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Human beings, by their very nature, enjoy being entertained. Unfortunately for animals, we have found innumerable ways to use them for the purpose of entertainment. Most often, humans are blissfully unaware of the suffering animals endure to be the subject of our amusement. The regulation of animal use in entertainment industries provides a good illustration of the way in which humans typically deal with the management of human-animal relationships in law. The interests of humans - which, in the sphere of entertainment, are predominantly economic, social and cultural - are weighed against the interests of the animals being used. Ultimately, this balancing act produces legal rules that are created to minimise the harm caused to animals to a level that is necessary to satisfy the desire of humans to be entertained.
