I just tried to put this comment on my note about Temple Grandin's book, and apparently Facebook users find the content offensive. This is what I wanted to say. Maybe the typos are the problem which is why I left them in.
Just in case there is any doubt, I would like to point out that weapons are ways of increasing the level of pain or damage you can inflict with your own body. Whips are the most obviuos weapons, but whips, bits, boots (if you intend to kick the animal) even hard hats if you are gojg to headbut it.
