I will not shoot the messenger on this. After all it is the written word that has brought most of our knowledge from the beginning of time.
If you grew up with wild goats as pets and family friend you would have a most difficult time with any culture or group that saw them only as a meal.
I spent the most impactful years of my youth in close relationship with dogs as hunters, guardians and family friends. I have a very difficult time with seeing them as a meal. However the alleged brutality surrounding the taking of any life would turn me off from any meat I presently eat.
I remember the very first time I saw the act of eating monkey brains and the method that was associated with that culture of eating and have never been able to soften my anger.
