Letter to the Bishops - 1998

In 1998 a letter was sent to the Bishops of Hereford; Gloucester, Bath and Wells, Norwich, St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich, and Carlisle. An acknowledgement was received from the Chaplain to the Bishop of Norwich and two episcopal replies were received:

Dear Bishop __________

Because of your concern in regard to the fox hunting issue, and what I pray is your interest in animal welfare, I am writing to ask for your views on our treatment of animals generally.

Over two million healthy, intelligent, beautiful animals are slaughtered every day in the U.K. to satisfy our greedy appetites, when there is so much nourishing alternative food available to us. As well as these poor creatures, there are countless being tortured to death in medical research laboratories, and others cruelly exploited by us in so many ways.

Do you think we err in showing so little mercy to another species to whom God has given life?

A SAE is enclosed for the favour of a reply.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,

(Mrs) Peggy Murray
