Interesting subject. I see eating and cruelty as two separate things. I am a hunter, and have looked at this subject from several different angles over time.

I don't understand why people like to harm cats. Maybe because they don't understand them, and have never known one. Someone that is cruel to cats/animals is that way towards their fellow humans, as well. And it is also a symptom of something deeper and very dark. Many serial killers started out torturing animals when young...

What we eat and with it's differences are cultural. And each culture is different. A lot of horses go to waste in this country, and I suppose that a lot of cows in India do too. But we must all eat. I don't see what others eat as bad or cruel. But a pet is something different. And we must justify a way to eat farm animals without guilt, even though they all feel pain and the love for life. I don't have an answer.

Hmmm...please pass the bobcat stew over here...

Didn't click on the link REWahoo. I trust you on these matters. I'm sure it's just another reason why this thread should go away. I find it very disturbing to see how many find pleasure in the discomfort and pain this topic has brought to animal lovers like me. Why is that?

Would you eat Faux Beef ? I hear that it is lower in fat and much healtier for you.

Masterblaster - you sure do seem to enjoy promoting this thread. I just can't imagine why this gives you so much pleasure. I'll give you this: you have succeeded in causing me anguish and to question why I ever became a member of this forum. Well done.

Well, don't do anything rash... on his/her account.

Puron: Well there is that - Oh Yuck - factor here. I suspect that most of the posters on this topic are just kidding around and aren't really serious.

On the other hand who are you to tell the rest of us what we should post ? If you don't like the topic then stay away.
