Human-animal interactions subject of book discussion

Written by 

The Jackson County Public Library will host WCU Psychology Professor Hal Herzog for a talk about his book, Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard to Think Straight About Animals, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

The discussion will address the range of questions and moral issues linked to their relationships with animals. Is it OK to kill animals just because they taste good? Why is it OK to feed a mouse but not a kitten to your pet boa constrictor? Why do Koreans eat dogs but Americans don’t? Are pit bulls inherently dangerous? Do most children who abuse animals become violent adults?

Herzog will discuss his book and the research behind it. A question-and-answer session will follow his remarks.
For more information contact the library at 828.586.2016.
