This chapter defines "animal" as any nonhuman vertebrate. However, it excludes livestock, game, fur-bearing animal, fish, reptile, or amphibian unless a person owns, confines, or controls the game, fur-bearing animal, fish, reptile, or amphibian, and any nongame considered a "nuisance."
According to Iowa's law, when Whites beat to death a chicken, a fish, a deer, a cow, a lobster, etc. for food it does not constitute animal abuse, because Whites eat those animals. However, beating to death a dog or cat is a reprehensible crime in the eyes of Whites, because Whites have deemed those to not be food animals.
All those White devils who foam at the mouth on videos where Asians prepare dogs and cats for food, saying they'd like to nuke all Asians or torture all Asians, don't have a logically consistent foot to stand on. They're hypocrites who would never talk about doing the same kind of thing to Germanic peoples for their love of pork and beef.
