The word "mutilate" is a disturbing one, but I’m not using it merely to disturb. I’m using it because it aptly describes what I’m talking about. The root of the word means "to cut up, to cut off," and that’s what we do systematically to billions of animals - because we can. To my mind, to mutilate someone physically, to harm them physically is the ultimate violation of their rights as an individual. Please join me as we explore yet another truth - disturbing though it is - about our treatment of non-human animals. I promise the next episode will be much lighter.
