One of the comments regarding wool:
 
Exactly the opposite. Without breeders and farmers the Sheep would go extinct. Wool is harvested by shearing sheep. The people that do the sharing are extraordinary really good at their job and do it without harming the animal. In fact it's very healthy for the animal to get sheared because wool does not stopped growing and without sharing the animal can suffer tremendously. shearing is very beneficial to the Sheep's health.
