  1. As someone who does not view animals or other living beings as “commodities” I find this kind of materialistic display horrifying. It reminds me of how human slaves were once judged only by the “value” of their flesh. Torn from their families and homes – All to become someone else’s “property”.

    There is not a cow, goat or rabbit here who does not value their lives equal to how I value my own… Or how you value yours – So what gives you any privilege to define their worth aside from the “might” to do such?
