esfolamento
Explanation:
Os "produtores de lã" australianos utilizam tesouras de jardinagem para retirar a pele e carne dos cordeiros sem o uso de qualquer anestesia. Esta é considerada uma forma barata de evitar a infestação de larvas, que livra o produtor de empregar recursos na compra e aplicação de métodos de controle parasitário mais éticos e sofisticados.

Este massacre tem o nome de Mulesing - ESFOLAMENTO
