The butcher command is used to butcher a corpse in the hope of providing useable cuts of meat. You can also attempt to butcher specific parts (heads, arms, spleens, ears, noses, etc) from a corpse if you are that way inclined. A cleaver, or some other kind of suitable hacking knife, is needed to perform this command.
