    Rebekah Humphreys (2010). Game Birds: The Ethics of Shooting Birds for Sport. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 4 (1):52 – 65.score: 1.10539
    This paper aims to provide an ethical assessment of the shooting of animals for sport. In particular, it discusses the use of partridges and pheasants for shooting. While opposition to hunting and shooting large wild mammals is strong, game birds have often taken a back seat in everyday animal welfare concerns. However, the practice of raising game birds for sport poses significant ethical issues. Most birds shot are raised in factory-farming conditions, and there is a considerable amount of evidence to (...)

    Rebekah Humphreys (2014). The Argument From Existence, Blood-Sports, and 'Sport-Slaves'. Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 27 (2):331-345.score: 1.10212
    The argument from existence is often used as an attempted justification for our use of animals in commercial practices, and is often put forward by lay-persons and philosophers alike. This paper provides an analysis of the argument from existence primarily within the context of blood-sports (applying the argument to the example of game-birding), and in doing so addresses interesting and related issues concerning the distinction between having a life and living, or worthwhile life and mere existence, as well as issues (...)

    Rebekah Humphreys (2008). Animal Thoughts on Factory Farms: Michael Leahy, Language and Awareness of Death. Between the Species 13 (8):2.score: 1.10051
    The idea that language is necessary for thought and emotion is a dominant one in philosophy. Animals have taken the brunt of this idea, since it is widely held that language is exclusively human. Michael Leahy makes a case against the moral standing of factory-farmed animals based on such ideas. His approach is Wittgensteinian: understanding is a thought process that requires language, which animals do not possess. But he goes further than this and argues that certain factory farming methods do (...)
