IN THE photograph accompanying 'How we Met - Penn and Teller' (Sunday Review, 25 September) a rat is being held up by its back leg alone as its body twists around this pivot - a painful and cruel action. There is no justification for use of any animals in a cruel fashion for so-called 'humour'. Use of such a photograph appears to condone such behaviour.
