I would like to know why they don't use monstrous creatures (mutated humans) (abbies) as a source of food in Wayward Pines. They killed so many while trying to climb the electric fence.
A few reasons:
- Pilcher doesn't want the people who live in Wayward pines to know about the Abbies. Obviously having unidentifiable Abbie meat might raise some flags.
- They are difficult to kill and would essentially be game animals; meaning that all the difficulty they would go through to capture/kill a proper amount of Abbies to feed the town would be quite significant and for not a lot of payoff.
- They didn't have a need; their stock supplies would have lasted them a few years - they would concentrate on actions that produced the most bang for the buck. So, farms, and livestock. Keeping a pen of Abbies would not be efficient.
- They're humans - people have had an aversion to eating human meat for millennia. Granted Abbies are evolved humans, they are still humans. It'd be a difficult sell for Pilcher.
