Sir: To my knowledge no sheep was ever to blame for the appalling carnage in Rwanda or Bosnia, nor have they ever been known to mug the defenceless, abuse, torture and murder the innocent, seek power for self-gratification, destroy their own environment through stupidity and greed, etc.

Is Angela Lambert really so surprised that the more deeply thinking among us should have more sympathy for sheep than for homo destructus?
