Summary

Horsley’s work over the years had involved much experimentation in animals, and this inevitably brought him the opprobrium of a certain segment of the general public. He took on with seeming relish those crusading against such experimentation, becoming the bête noire of the antivivisectionists as he responded to their jibes and insults, always concerned to have the last word.
