      No animal should be treated this way... well, unless perhaps the "animals" that are pulling this poor innocent beast to pieces!!! Coming of age means they are well old enough to realize that what they are doing is despicable.

      Knowing that this is going on and allowing it is criminal! "Coming of age" has nothing to do with it!! This is torture and murder of an innocent being! Culture, tradition, rites of manhood... If it's wrong, IT'S WRONG AND YOU BLOODY WELL KNOW IT!!!
