quote by Edward Hoagland

Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.

In olden times when there was a war, it was a human-to-human confrontation.

The victor in battle would directly see the blood and suffering of the defeated enemy.
