In French, "poulet" refers both to a mass or an individual depending whether we say "UN poulet" (an individual) or "DU poulet" (a undifferentiated substance). You talk about "anthropomorphized hot dogs", but I think acknowledging animals as individuals is not to "anthropomorphize" them (this would imply that only humans are individuals), but to personalize them, to think of them as person is the largest sense of the word. As you said in a recent paper "A FORM OF WAR. ANIMALS, HUMANS, AND THE SHIFTING BOUNDARIES OF COMMUNITY," "the default assumption throughout most of human history has been that animals are themselves people, if not exactly in the same way we are." (Excellent paper, btw).
