ADAMS, RICHARD The Plague Dogs
London, Allen Lane, 1977.
First Edition. The third book from Richard Adams, author of Watership Down, still on the theme of animal suffering. You'll be pleased to hear, therefore, that he only ramps up his game in Plague Dogs, with two mentally scarred dogs escaping from an animal testing facility, and being mercilessly hunted down by the Evil That Is Man. It wouldn't be quite so upsetting if it weren't a fair representation of how we treat them.
