a| The author examines how animals have been used for entertainment and sport in animal acts, canned hunting, cockfighting, and more, and explores the line between use and abuse. The author, an investigative journalist explores the way humans interact with animals. The attack of a trainer at SeaWorld by a killer whale in February 2010 sparked his examination of the controversial role animals have played throughout the ages in the human arenas of entertainment and sports. When it comes to using animals for our own entertainment, he asks: What's okay and what's not? From the Romans throwing Christians to the lions to cock-fighting in present-day California, from abusive Mexican circuses to the thrills of a Hungarian counterpart, and from dog training to shooting strays in the Baghdad streets, he looks at the ways people have used animals for their pleasure. Travel with him as he encounters intriguing people and places and contemplates the line that separates animal use from abuse. -- From book jacket.
