Abstract
Animal rights activists use a variety of approaches to achieving ideological aims. This presentation examines the problems of violence both in terms of ethics and praxis. This presentation explores how violent animal activists actually turn themselves into targets of the police, the legal system, and the public. Ultimately, this presentation suggests that countering violence against animals through the act of violence offers no lasting solutions and actually perpetuates poor treatment of nonhuman creatures.
