The recent letter from a significant number of people in leadership positions ( VR , 22 February 2020, vol 186, p 220) raises concern regarding the tone and language used to describe them in print and online. The letter had some resonance after reading a …
At the last election, the three main political parties all included pledges to ban pet primates as part of their manifestos. Since then, Defra has concluded its consultation into the welfare of pet primates and looks set to start the process of introducing a prohibition on keeping all primates (including marmoset monkeys, for which, amazingly, people do not need to obtain a licence to keep at home). If written into law, such a ban would set a precedent. For the first time the UK would be banning...

Recent reports from Hong Kong and China have declared a dog to be infected with Covid-19.
