I would not want to be unwillingly taken from my family, caged, experimented on,or watch my family be tortured and killed These horrors happen every day to other species. It is not necessary for human survival to slaughter other species for clothing or food. So, Why torture and kill them? I believe it is because they are different from us - so different in shape, color, texture, and "intelligence" that we can justify the brutal murders that our species performs ritually on them. We can pretend other species have no thoughts and emotions.
