All over Europe, throughout the Middle Ages and into the 19th century, animals were tried for human crimes. This text traces and documents such trials, providing examples of cases, such as a sow tried for murder, caterpillars charged with theft, a cock burned at the stake for the heinous crime of laying an egg, and others.
