That word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
PETA will never make headway before it starts realizing that people do not think of animals as equal to human beings, yet, and that the idea of a camel escaping and getting hit by a car is more HILARIOUS than it is unfathomable.
As for animals getting slaughtered...this is THANKSGIVING. Everyone and their mothers just gorged on Turkey. Turkey that did not die of natural causes. Do the MATH.
