  1. With respect to Philosophy to Politics: Assessing the Work of Tom Regan conversation, I write to correct an attribution made by Mylan Engel that I am responsible for ending fox and other hunting (‘bloodsports’) in Britain. This is not true. The passage of the Hunting Act 2004 in Britain’s Parliament was the responsibility of a multi-generational campaign waged by many individuals and organisations utilising a variety of means. I played a relatively small part in it as a vegan animal rights activist. Just to note: The Hunting Act prohibits the killing of animals by a pack of dogs. The law is far from perfect. It needs strengthening and defending from periodic calls for its repeal. Mylan also refers to The Animals’ Platform. This is a project I discuss in my book, Growl (Lantern Books). Also in Growl, I discuss animal rights from a class perspective as someone who was born to a working class family in England in the 1950s. I also discuss working in a chicken slaughterhouse when I was a student. Thank you for publishing a thoughtful and informative discussion.
