Cost-benefit

Michael Valpy asks questions about the seal hunt.

What does a moral cost-benefit analysis of animal exploitation look like?

With guide dogs for the sightless, there is substantial benefit for humans at minimal cost to dogs. With rhinoceros horn for aphrodisiac and fever-reduction, there is non-existent or limited benefit for humans at high cost to rhinoceroses. Using this equation, taking rhinoceros horns does not meet a minimum standard of decency.

What is the moral worth of a seal?
