The Driving of the Kemonomimi (Kæzhyn: Uþda'ze Asly'lo) was a period of conflict between the Kæra Collective Republic and the Kemonomimi minority in Kæra'zna, following the introduction of a policy of expulsion or execution of the species by the Cult of Absolute Purity who presided over the nation. The period lasted from the policy's enactment on 4 April 1873 until the complete removal of Kemonomimi from the country.

While significantly less brutal than the later genocides in Kæra'zna, the conflict brought about the extinction of the Asly'lo ethnic group, with a majority of those expulsed dying shortly after or being absorbed into Kemonomimi societies abroad. Due to this erradication of a group, as well as estimated death tolls exceeding 6,200 Asly'lo, the event has been classified by international histories as an example of a completed genocide.
