“This is a great reason to occasionally exterminate cows and consume them. Unless hes arguing for the total extinction of these fine animals?”
Cows are not natural creatures. If we didn’t eat them they wouldn’t exist. So, yes, he is arguing for their extinction. Or at least their near-extinction; perhaps they could live on in zoos.
Doing this would offend people who think cows are sacred. We need to save, multiply and occasionally kill sacred cows.
