So, last night I learned that PeTA is opposed even to wool because sheep are harmed in the production of it. My mind is boggled.
Listen, I’ve no doubt that there’s animal cruelty in some corners of the wool industry, but this seems like such an easy problem to solve. You locate the people who treat the sheep cruelly and you boycott them and you encourage folks to buy their wool elsewhere. Shearing sheep is not inherently degrading or troubling to a sheep any more than you getting a haircut is degrading or troubling to you.
I don’t know. I find it baffling.
