Yes, please.

Strap a human on the bull instead, and send them both over a cliff.
No great loss in either case.

This might be a taboo thing to say but humanity has some dumb traditions… And that’s ignoring the animal cruelty…

It would be terribly embarrassing if an advanced alien species invade/ visits “*0_o* Why are they tethering those two organisms together?”. You’d hope that they were just as debase as we humans can be with even more bizarre traditions.

More taboo comments incoming; I have came to the opinion that while some traditions are pivotal to the character of some cultures and are even beneficial. Some traditions need to stop, not even for the sake of ethics either but for their self respect…
How is strapping a bird to a bovine befitting behaviour of a supposed higher intelligent being? I know it’s symbolic but yeah It might just be me but I find it rather dumb…
