After years working for the RSPCA, Terry Spamer became the first freelance undercover agent investigating animal maltreatment. He has endeavoured to seek out large-scale operations of cruelty to animals and to expose them - via infiltration, surveillance, and covert recording - to the animal welfare authorities and governments. His work involves personal danger, as those capable of such terrible atrocities to animals are often willing to harm anyone who tries to thwart them.In Animal Eye, Spamer tells some of his most gripping stories, including covert investigations of: the illegal capture of wild monkeys for research, the killing of endangered species for taxidermy, Polish horses being cruelly turned into Italian salami under Mafia supervision and 'squishing' small animals by stamping on them in stilettos. Horrifying, yet compelling, this book is an essential eye-opener to the cruelty that lives on in a 'civilised' world.
