The Sixth Genre: Beast Mimic/Torured Beastnoid



In the process of human development, the dignity and rights of animals have been increasingly deprived. Especially as mankind enters the era of industrial systemization, everything is more and more highly efficient and utilitarianism, so mankind is increasingly despising the dignity and rights of other animals. In any aspect of the present world, the life purpose of animals is reduced to a sacrifice to satisfy human desires.

Take hunting as an example. In the old days, hunters took hunting dogs to kill animals in order to survive and fill their stomachs. Nowadays, some groups use hunting as an entertainment and a competition event. The animal heads on the wall are glorious trophies for these people. In order to win more trophies, they also began to modify the hound's genes. After several generations of breeding and selection, a high-quality hunting dog that can meet the standard hunting competition has been created. And then let this new species hunt other animals.

Human beings dominate the destiny of animals, and the dignity of animals is wiped out. Faced with all these phenomena, animals have no choice but to accept.
