The unlawful killing of domesticated animals for their meat, investigated by a lawyer.
Read in The Wordsworth Book of Horror Stories. I’m not sure about the date of the original magazine publication, in Northern Counties Magazine; 1919 refers to the Border Ghost Stories collection. Beautifully written.
