Vindicating Pierson v. Post’s ‘Saucy Intruder’: Of Wildlife Crimes & Crimes Against Wildlife
Join David Rosengard, Animal Legal Defense Fund senior staff attorney, for a discussion regarding wildlife crimes, crimes against wildlife — and the subtle but significant difference between the two.
Beginning with a look at the venerable history of wildlife law, we will explore how traditional approaches fail to account for the experience of the animals themselves, as well as the fundamental nature of animal cruelty laws. As we search for answers, we discover that justice — and raison d’être of modern cruelty statutes — call for the law to be deployed in order to shield wildlife from unlawful suffering at human hands.
