OUTFOXED BOOK : This is the book that was published by Michael Huskisson Associates in 1983. It details animal welfare work and undercover work to expose bloodsports up until that time.
The book is long out of print now but second-hand copies do occasionally turn up for sale on eBay, usually costing less than £10. The ACIG/AWIS has given a copy to Google books to scan and make available free of charge on the Internet.
