(refutation of disagreement with 6. B.)
Refutation of claiming that animals are not avoidably harmed for leather:
- Animals who are specially reared for leather are confined and given the cheapest possible quarters and feed (i.e., they are overcrowded, kept separate lest they go mad under overcrowded conditions so they cannot socialize, although animals reared for leather are undeniably social animals), have their excrement cleaned as seldom as possible because it is cheaper, and their feed is inferior because it is cheaper.
- Animals who have their hides used for leather who are raised for "meat" do not have good lives in confinement either, and face a horrible and terrifying death amid the yells and howls of protest, hitting, prodding, and the sights and smells of killed companions in slaughterhouses.
