I had an idea for a story where a Yukkuri is given augmentations making it practically equal to a human, and it gets really pissed off at the way its kind is treated but then it later on it comes to understand how fun it can be to torture other Yukkuri after being exposed to their shitheadedness.
Lol, a bodied Yukkuri could work for a going abuser fic xD.
My idea was that the Yukkuri market expanded exponentialy without any real control, in one of those mini island in the south pacific a group of smuggled Yukkuris ate the whole island in less than three months, 30 Yukkuris to 600 in one summer or something like that.
Switzerland said fuck this and banned Yukkuris from the country, no pet, no farms, nothing, they don't want to deal with that. Countries like Spain or France adopted Yukkuris and now they have thousands of strays in their cities, well in Paris they run massive exterminations, and they garbage collectors get a bonus per head.
People in third or four world nations only see walking food, they're treated like chickens or pigs.
After the whole "GoldBadgeGate" the pet system branched in two schools of training, one more akin to a military school, works better for predators and very active owners, and a more "Dog whisperer" for more sedentary families.
The "GoldBadgeGate" was an epic mess in PR, one child death, several adults wounded, one woman loss her finger ;), one day the expensive gold badge pet Yukkuris snapped without any logic reason.
One family with one Alice and her kids being the most dramatic case on the record. A little girl five of six years old took the ko's to play in the garden, they were dirty and went to take a shower, the girl removed her hairband and removed the ko's hairbands.
The mother Alice found them on the bathtud, no accesories = stray... the rest is history.
The history ends in a video leaking from the pet training grounds inside the factory and everyone going wtf for the content.
