Why is humankind so focused on lopping off body parts?
We “bob” dog’s ears and tails.
We castrate bulls.
We lop off the foreskin of infant males.
And now we wanna chop off the wings of animals that have been flying for 99 million years.
“Earn the right to fly”? Preposterous.
Flight is what birds are all about.
Flight was granted to birds long before, way long before humans could cook food with fire.
