From Ms Brenda Buck Sir: Of course animals cannot have rights like those of humans but, as sentient beings, surely animals have fundamental rights to freedom from fear, pain and, indeed, suffering deliberately caused by morally conscious humans - for whatever reason. Otherwise, how can we possibly consider ourselves above them?

I fail to see anything "juvenile" in upholding this view or in speaking up for animals.

Yours faithfully, BRENDA BUCK Leeds
