In harray potter and the method of rationality, cp17, Dumbledore set fire to a chicken. Harray, of curse, got shocked, but after a while he was told that it probably wasn't "real" chicken but a chicken which created by transformation.
I have 2 question about it:
Is that ethic to create animals(or humans) by transformation? Beacause, you know, its will faded after a while. (I know you can say it about creating children but the time is much shorter here).
Damn it, why its better to burn alive "fake"(but alive!) chicken then "real" chicken?!
